Barack Hussein Obama (or B-HO, as I like to call him) charismatically and emphatically denied reports this week that he is a closeted Muslim and instead declared candidly and with youthful verve that he believes in Jesus Christ.
The journey of America’s banks abroad in search of a bailout makes this specific conflict a key question of policy and highly relevant to their campaigns. What better illustration could one have of Hillary’s conflicts of interest than this one?
The prescriptive remedy for overspending is reduced spending. Although it isn't being said in as many words, the trouble we are in is an aspect of overspending. But, paradoxically, the solution is not only to spend more, but to spend it quickly.
In an effort to pander to potential voters in an act that was reminiscent of Hillary Clinton’s demented drawl reading a Negro spiritual in front of a black congregation, Gov. Mike Huckabee, stumping for votes in South Carolina, said something on national television this week that was positively astounding.
The problem Ron Paul and Chuck Hagel have is not truly that they're disagreeing with most of their fellow Republicans, it's that they're disagreeable fellows who’ve adopted the offensive rhetoric of the Left.
The Republican race hasn't exactly followed any of the scripts laid out for it. His win in his home-state Michigan primary notwithstanding, Mitt Romney has been hacked apart like the Black Knight in "Monty Python and the Holy Grail."
As Republican primary and caucus voters conspire to deny the party a front-runner -- one state for you, another for you, and a third for the other guy -- some observers have speculated that the party doesn't quite know its own identity.
While political analysts too often divide the electorate into tiny monolithic voting blocks for nothing more than the ease of discussion, the Iowa, New Hampshire and Michigan primaries reveal that the “youth vote” really does matter.
Make no mistake about it, you are paying exorbitant prices at the gas pump solely because the environmental terrorists and their Democrat allies in Congress have all but shut down our domestic oil production while refusing to allow the exploration and creation of new sources of this resource so vital to our economic health.
On January 14, Frank Pastore wrote an open letter Mike Huckabee Titled: “Dear Huck: You’ve Won Our Hearts, Now Win Our Minds Too.” Here's Mike Huckabee's Response.
The Democratic nomination for president will likely be decided by the subtle pulls of ego against duty that tug at the conscience of John Edwards.
Seventy-five years ago next month, the Oxford Union debated the following resolution: "That this House will in no circumstances fight for its King and Country." The motion passed 275 votes to 153.
When they start throwing words like “moderate” and “bipartisan” at you, the best thing to do is duck. Let’s begin with a semantics lesson and some facts.
With Governor Mitt Romney’s win in Michigan, the Republican nomination battle is wide open. A different man has won each of the first three contests, and none of the prospective GOP standard bearers is an odds-on favorite. In fact, we believe to that for any of these men to be successful they will need to look to a special woman for help. That woman is Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
John McCain is running as an anti-conservative. As a result he has failed in the first four contests to win even a plurality of Republican votes cast, and now the primaries enter the contests where only Republicans can vote.
I've got to hand it to Barack Obama. His team managed to take mangled words from Bill and Hillary Clinton and create an explosive racial divide just in time for some major southern primaries.
When Reagan said in his First Inaugural Address, "Government isn't the solution to our problem; government is the problem," he believed it to his deepest core.
Early next week, Republicans in Congress face a decision that will say much about the party’s future direction on spending discipline. There there will be a rare open seat on the powerful House Appropriations Committee.
Over the last week, the Obama camp has tried to suggest, insinuate, whisper or wink that the Clintons are somehow racist. Obama's staff sent out a memo compiling some quotes that allegedly demonstrate the "racial insensitivity" of Hillary Clinton's campaign.
Ron Paul is not just a rare politician. The Texas Republican's combination of principle and plainspokenness, which has helped his presidential campaign break fund-raising records while attracting a strikingly diverse and enthusiastic crowd.
Hillary Clinton’s controversial comments about Martin Luther King exposed one of the worst aspects of contemporary liberalism: its preference for governmental remedies for every imaginable human problem, and taxpayer support for every worthwhile national endeavor.
The Bush administration missed a golden opportunity to stand up for the Second Amendment when it filed a Supreme Court brief that only gives lukewarm support to gun rights.
On "Meet the Press" Sunday, Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Hillary Clinton repeated her bogus claim that she voted for the Iraq War resolution because she thought it was "a vote to put inspectors back in to determine what threat Saddam Hussein did, in fact, pose."
There seem to be many busybodies who believe that "the village," i.e., government functionaries, should make major decisions about the upbringing of children, including what they are taught and how they are medicated.
Conservatives may be surprised to hear that for over 50 years they have been successful in stopping the growth of big government. Going all the way to the early 1950s Federal spending has hovered in a fairly narrow band around 20% of GDP.
I can say, along with millions of Americans, that Mike Huckabee has won our hearts. Now, he must close the deal and win our minds.
What was the significance, if any, of this whole New Hampshire blur? I have no idea, and I'm not sure it matters. Because the more things change, the more confusingly the same they remain.
The rapid rise of John McCain, the man who has done more to thwart Reagan conservatives than any other Republican over the last few years, is evidence that Rollins is right -- or at a minimum, evidence that movement conservatives have been marginalized in the Republican Party.
As Hillary uses every sniffle and lecture to bring her one step closer to the job she’s yearned for so fiercely and so long, it would be good if she thought about the kind of trail she’s blazing for the next female presidential hopeful, Democrat or Republican.
A few days ago, while I was telling my children a story to convey a lesson, Maggie, my oldest child, asked me if the story was real, or a tall tale. She explained to me that she was learning about tall tales in school, and that tall tales had an element of truth, but were made-up.
Your letter indicated that, as you have nanny-stater John Edwards in North Carolina and I have nanny-stater Barack Obama here in Illinois both running for president, we engage in a cross-country rivalry to see which of us can lose the biggest by having “our” candidate take the Democratic nomination.
