Kevin McCullough | March 09, 2008

Unlike Ann Coulter, multitudes of radio talk show hosts, and even some of the internet's most recognizable blogs, I don't think that using Barrack Hussein Obama's middle name accomplishes all that much.

Michael Barone | March 08, 2008

Suddenly, the look and feel of the Democratic presidential race are different. Yet the delegate count has changed hardly at all.

Jonah Goldberg | March 08, 2008

While physicists can count the number of quarks in a given space, the very best political minds in the land can barely manage to get a working delegate count.

Ken Blackwell | March 08, 2008

Now that John McCain has secured the Republican Party nomination, he will decide who should be the next chairman of the Republican National Committee. One name he should consider is Governor Mike Huckabee.

Debra J. Saunders | March 08, 2008

Who says that the issue of global warming is a matter of science, not faith? Just last week, Mayor Gavin Newsom proved belief trumps data.

Robert Novak | March 08, 2008

Carly Fiorina will head the Republican National Committee's "Victory 2008" campaign raising funds for the presidential election.

Robert Murphy | March 08, 2008

David Bellavia | March 07, 2008

For as long as I have been associated with the military and veteran organizations I have always been proud of the company I've kept.

Michael Gerson | March 07, 2008

The one goal that unites and explains the Democratic approach to foreign policy is this: America must try -- urgently and desperately -- to be more popular in the world.

Amanda Carpenter | March 07, 2008

Officials from the John McCain’s presidential campaign announced their merger with the Republican National Committee to coordinate fundraising, messaging and organization activities Friday.

Roger Schlesinger | March 07, 2008

I do not and will not blame the govenment for the credit crisis and mortgage mess, per se.

Janice Shaw Crouse | March 07, 2008

As if we didn’t have enough trouble already at the United Nations (U.N.) from feminists pushing a radical agenda on the world, they continue trying to “reform” the whole “gender architecture” of the U.N.

Merrill Matthews | March 07, 2008

Have you ever wondered why virtually no breakthrough drugs are invented in garages, as various Internet and software companies have done?

Rick Amato | March 07, 2008

The judge handed the jury's findings to the senior member of the court. Cpl. Trent Thomas along with his attorney, Victor Kelly, slowly rose and stood while waiting to hear the court's decision.

Roy Blunt | March 07, 2008

Approaching nearly 10 million words and stretching an interminable 67,000 pages, the American tax code exists today as complicated mess of pitfalls, pratfalls, and potholes.

John McCaslin | March 07, 2008

The newly appointed inspector general (IG) of the Commerce Department, Todd J. Zinser, has reinstated two whistleblowers demoted by his predecessor for cooperating with a congressional probe of misspent funds.

Diana West | March 07, 2008

I can't think of a point of historic comparison to the figurative bed we have made for ourselves in Iraq -- particularly now that our Iraqi allies have welcomed our Iranian enemies right into it.

Kathryn Lopez | March 07, 2008

Enough is enough. Hillary Clinton has made history already; she has shown us that a woman can be a major presidential candidate. But as we are here living history, I'd like it to now be history.

Rich Galen | March 07, 2008

All day long, yesterday, I got calls from reporters testing the theory that McCain securing the GOP nomination this past Tuesday was actually the worst thing which could have happened.

David Bellavia | March 07, 2008

Starting out in the infantry, as with any profession or vocation, you learn basic skills.

John Hawkins | March 07, 2008

As people who have followed Barack Obama closely over the last few months have long since realized, there has been very little substance to the man's campaign besides his determination to lose -- oops, I mean "end" -- the war in Iraq.

Brent Bozell | March 07, 2008

Newsweek magazine recently celebrated the latest trend in elite Northeastern colleges: sex magazines, complete with highbrow titles -- like "Boink."

Jonah Goldberg | March 07, 2008

Things are going poorly in Gaza. Who among us can contain our shock?

Mike Adams | March 07, 2008

I never thought I would say this but I’m afraid my Ann Coulter Action Figure is going out with today’s garbage.

David Limbaugh | March 07, 2008

The Democratic Party cashiered Howard Dean and replaced him, fairly early in the process, with the deeply flawed John Kerry when it became apparent that Dean was unelectable.

Mona Charen | March 07, 2008

Barack Obama's words are often attractive but oddly concealing. His speeches are all balm and mood.

Oliver North | March 07, 2008

These are tough times for terrorists and the despots who back them. On Jan. 28, Abu Laith al-Libi, No. 3 in al-Qaida, was killed by a missile strike in Pakistan.

Pat Buchanan | March 07, 2008

Tribalism is now bedeviling America and the presidential politics of this diverse nation, and roiling its most diverse party.

Linda Chavez | March 07, 2008

Sunday night, I'll be in front of my television set saying goodbye to some improbable friends: a few drug dealers, some good cops and bad, a corrupt politician or two and a handful of boys who broke my heart.

Paul Greenberg | March 07, 2008

This front-loaded presidential election year is spinning past at dizzying speed. It's all happening much too fast to think. Which isn't good for the voters.

Rich Tucker | March 07, 2008

On the campaign trail the buzzword is “change,” and the two remaining Democratic candidates are all for it. A particular “change” each one promises is to improve America’s standing in the world.

Charles Krauthammer | March 07, 2008

She threw the kitchen sink at him. Accused Barack Obama of plagiarism. Mocked his eloquence. Questioned his truthfulness about NAFTA. Wasn't enough.

Paul Weyrich | March 07, 2008

There is a potentially dangerous piece of legislation to strengthen the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) which could see action in the Senate before the Easter recess.

Lorie Byrd | March 07, 2008

Am I the only one who’s noticed that George Bush is doing an awful lot of dancing lately?

Kathleen Parker | March 07, 2008

If an author can't make the Oprah cut, the next best thing may be getting censured by a university.

Burt Prelutsky | March 07, 2008

Most 12-step programs start out by requiring that people have to understand that they’re powerless over their addiction and that only by turning their lives over to a Power greater than themselves can they be restored to sanity.

Mike Gallagher | March 07, 2008

This week, a lot of people I admire and respect have scolded me for my frequent on-air use of Barack Hussein Obama’s full name.

Thu, Mar 06, 2008

Hugh Hewitt | March 06, 2008

At my urging the brains at Kithbridge put together on Thursday to provide a continually updating news feed on all things related to Tony Rezko.

Rich Lowry | March 06, 2008

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez reached for what he considered the ultimate insult when he called Colombia "the new Israel."

Michael Reagan | March 06, 2008

It’s inevitable that a lot of people are taking credit for the outcome of the Texas and Ohio primaries. In reality, the outcome was more or less the result of “Saturday Night Live.”

Thor Tolo | March 06, 2008

Truth be told, the preaching pastor of America’s 15th fastest growing church probably likes all the attention.

Floyd and Mary Beth Brown | March 06, 2008

Much of the current analysis of the presidential campaign battle is missing the point. All of the media attention is focused on the Hillary Clinton vs. Barack Obama heavyweight fight as if it will decide the election. But it seems observers in Washington, D.C. haven’t yet sensed the undercurrent running in the country, which for the first time in four years has turned and is running the Republican’s direction. The election map is changing.

Richard H. Collins | March 06, 2008

Many Republicans were cheered by Hillary Clinton’s victories this past Tuesday. Rush Limbaugh had even recommended that Republicans cross parties and vote for her.

Clay Waters | March 06, 2008

Like the chilly weather that blew through New York City this week after a mild winter, the New York Times' recent cooling toward John McCain marks a profound switch from the paper's years of warm and fuzzy coverage.

Amanda Carpenter | March 06, 2008

Barack Obama has barely responded to the “kitchen sink” of attacks Hillary Clinton has made against him and already the Clinton campaign is accusing him of emulating negative right-wing tactics.

With big wins in Ohio and Texas last night, Hillary Clinton has finally broken her losing streak and sent a clear message to Barack Obama: I'm not getting out.

David Strom | March 06, 2008

Imagine this scenario: an economist examines consumers’ automobile purchases and comes to the conclusion that the market is completely out of whack.

Ross Mackenzie | March 06, 2008

Following the Ohio and Texas (etc.) results, a revised situation report (sitrep) — and the prospects….

John McCaslin | March 06, 2008

"I probably didn't help today when I rode over in a 20-car motorcade." Or so President Bush observed yesterday in his opening line to the Washington International Renewable Energy Conference.

Cliff May | March 06, 2008

During the 1990s, thousands of terrorists were trained in Afghanistan, Lebanon, Iraq, Iran and elsewhere.

Roger Schlesinger | March 06, 2008

Does it matter that the headline is correct or do you believe I am just splitting hairs? If you owe a bundle how important is the fact that the parameters of the debt can be widely different?

Ann Coulter | March 06, 2008

The mainstream media said she was finished, but our brave Hillary soldiered on to wallop B. Hussein Obama in Ohio, Texas and Rhode Island Tuesday night.

Thomas Sowell | March 06, 2008

Somebody had to lead the way and that somebody was William F. Buckley.

Larry Elder | March 06, 2008

You know, the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over again and expecting a different result. We are going to do things differently and expect a different result.

Ken Blackwell | March 06, 2008

As a historic Supreme Court case on the Second Amendment looms, District of Columbia v. Heller, two unexpected perspectives show what is at stake in this case for all Americans.

Cal Thomas | March 06, 2008

After being the inevitable Democratic presidential nominee, Sen. Hillary Clinton was being called upon by the newest inevitable nominee, Barack Obama, to withdraw from the race.

Suzanne Fields | March 06, 2008

Assassination is something none us like to talk about, but it's nevertheless an unhappy part of the history of the presidency.

Debra J. Saunders | March 06, 2008

You've probably read about the disparity in federal mandatory minimum sentences before. The Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1986 mandated a five-year minimum sentence for possession of 5 grams of crack cocaine or 500 grams of powdered cocaine.

Ben Shapiro | March 06, 2008

Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., is back. By winning the Democratic primaries this week, Clinton has ensured the Democratic presidential nomination will be decided at the Democratic National Convention.

Matt Towery | March 06, 2008

While conventional wisdom might suggest that such a protracted intraparty battle would give Republican John McCain lots of time to raise money and catch his breath, there is another side to the situation.

Donald Lambro | March 06, 2008

Hillary proudly boasts that she has had to fight her critics throughout the scandal-plagued Clinton years, that she knows how to throw a punch and that she's still standing.

Maggie Gallagher | March 06, 2008

Admittedly, she hasn't given much competition for the honor in the past, but in Ohio this week on election night Hillary managed to slam the ball out of the park anyway.

Rebecca Hagelin | March 06, 2008

Listening to more than a few liberals, you’d think that the biggest problem in the world today is the United States. The “blame America first” crowd also foolishly wants us to give up our sovereignty, our security and our heritage.

George Will | March 06, 2008

Fidel Castro's career, although calamitous for Cubans, has provided entertaining farce through its effect on Western political pilgrims seeking leftist saviors.

Robert Novak | March 06, 2008

The scope of Hillary Clinton's latest resurrection can be appreciated only in light of the elaborate preparations that had been made for her expeditious burial.

William Rusher | March 06, 2008

Every few years, some group of scientists, egged on by the media, is persuaded to warn mankind of some new danger facing the human race.

Steve Chapman | March 06, 2008

McCain portrays himself as uniquely clear-eyed about the war. In fact, those eyes have often been full of stars.

Kevin James | March 06, 2008

McCain should seize his newfound stature within “the world’s greatest deliberative body” to take five steps necessary to convince Americans that he has finally learned his lesson about our nation’s dangerously porous borders.

Salena Zito | March 06, 2008

Pennsylvania Democrats hoping to catch a glimpse of their favorite presidential candidate shouldn't have to worry.

Emmett Tyrrell | March 06, 2008

In the aftermath of Sen. John McCain's capture of the Republican nomination, allow me to offer a quiz.

Wed, Mar 05, 2008

Robert Knight | March 05, 2008

A landmark marriage case opened Tuesday in the California Supreme Court that could have profound legal and social consequences for the entire nation.

Bob Burney | March 05, 2008

Remember the old cliché, “Just when you think you’ve heard it all ...”? Well, you haven’t until you’ve heard this.

Michael Gerson | March 05, 2008

In the seesaw Democratic primary race, Republicans generally are rooting for confusion, which means rooting for Hillary Clinton.

Lindsay Boyd | March 05, 2008

It smells like Iran-Contra to me. Only this time, it involves the violation of a state’s constitution for a cause much less admirable. Under-handed dealings and money-shuffling disguised as acts of public interest are oozing out of the budgetary offices in Phoenix, Arizona.

Paul Weyrich | March 05, 2008

From the beginning of our history, Americans have actively and spontaneously engaged in civic and political life by forming voluntary associations.

Amanda Carpenter | March 05, 2008

After breaking an 11-state primary losing streak to Barack Obama for the Democratic nomination for President, Hillary Clinton argued that her campaign should continue.

John McCaslin | March 05, 2008

It's called the Pundit Accountability Project, and it was created because "the campaigns are not the only clowns in this year's circus — the pundits have joined the act, too."

Rich Galen | March 05, 2008

Big - BIG - night for Hillary Rodham Clinton. Not only did she stop the Obama run of eleven straight primary victories; but she clearly planted the "Big State" flag into the middle of this nomination process.

Michelle Malkin | March 05, 2008

Behold with me the politics of gynocentrism. What a depressing and desiccative sight it is. Just look at Gloria Steinem.

John Stossel | March 05, 2008

Since The New York Times published its Page One story alleging an inappropriate link between Sen. John McCain and telecommunications lobbyist Vicki Iseman, we've heard much more about the evil of "influence-peddling."

Walter E. Williams | March 05, 2008

A fortnight ago, I wrote about Mississippi Legislature House Bill 282 that would have imposed fines or revoked licenses of food establishments that served obese people.

Brent Bozell | March 05, 2008

Now that Barack Obama is closing in on the Democratic nomination, some are wondering whether the media will be tougher in their coverage.

Jonah Goldberg | March 05, 2008

I'm writing this before the results from Ohio and Texas are known. And in an election year where events have been brutally unkind to predictions, it seems folly to pronounce Hillary Clinton a dead woman walking.

Tony Blankley | March 05, 2008

Less than two weeks ago, Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff announced at a news conference that a high-tech "virtual fence" project along part of the U.S. border with Mexico finally was ready for service.

Terry Jeffrey | March 05, 2008

Few Americans in the past century had as great a positive impact on their country as Bill Buckley did, and perhaps none so purely through the force of ideas and the power of example.

Debra J. Saunders | March 05, 2008

Obama is correct that Clinton failed to read the 90-page NIE report before voting to authorize the use of U.S. military force in Iraq in October 2002.

Austin Bay | March 05, 2008

The real news behind South America's latest border fracas is Colombia's looming victory in its own narcotics-powered civil war.

Paul Greenberg | March 05, 2008

What's the essential difference between the two remaining candidates battling it out for the Democratic presidential nomination?

Jacob Sullum | March 05, 2008

For Americans tired of hearing how we lag behind other developed nations in teaching children math, science and reading, a new report highlights an area where the United States is indisputably a world leader.

Bill Murchison | March 05, 2008

We may not know precisely, we Americans, what we want the next president to do about energy prices. What we shouldn't want him -- or her -- to do is as plain as a gasoline pump primed to deliver at 3-bucks-plus per gallon.

Paul Weyrich | March 05, 2008

When a great leader passes away everyone who has met that leader has a story. Here is mine.

Kathleen Parker | March 05, 2008

Change agents running for president probably would do well to leave the ghosts of crises past stashed in the attic.

Michael Medved | March 05, 2008

As the 2008 electoral calendar moves inexorably from primary season to the climactic partisan battle of the fall, both parties prefer to ignore the painful reality of a narrowly divided electorate and to consider their candidates in the light of false nostalgia.

Tue, Mar 04, 2008

John McCain | March 04, 2008

McCain: " have never believed I was destined be President. I don't believe anyone is pre-destined to lead America. But I do believe we are born with responsibilities to the country that has protected our God-given rights, and the opportunities they afford us. I did not grow up with the expectation that my country owed me more than the rights owed every American. On the contrary, I owe my country every opportunity I have ever had."

Amanda Carpenter | March 04, 2008

Arizona Senator John McCain officially clinched the Republican nomination for President after reaching the 1,191 delegates needed by winning the Texas, Ohio and Rhode Island and Vermont primaries Tuesday.

Kristen Fyfe | March 04, 2008

Monday’s NBC psychic crime drama Medium featured a plot line in which an Arizona state senator and former POW is discovered to be a two-time murderer and a cannibal.

Larry Kudlow | March 04, 2008

If Sen. John McCain wants to run as a candidate of change, and if he’s interested in distancing himself from President Bush on some issues, he should reverse the declining fortunes of the Bush wartime dollar.

Mario Diaz | March 04, 2008

Many people think the battle over the words “under God” in our Pledge of Allegiance is over. They remember that some extremist judges struck the words down.

Andrew Tallman | March 04, 2008

Given that the most well-known fact about Senator John McCain is his war record of courageous endurance in a prisoner camp, why do some commentators suddenly seem to want the Arizona Senator to start being a coward now?

Trent Franks | March 04, 2008

Without the fix provided in the Protect America Act, effectively listening to terrorists overseas would be nearly impossible for our intelligence community.

John McCaslin | March 04, 2008

Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain, who was a Navy pilot and held as a prisoner of war, doesn't even rate an honorable mention in the retired general's playbook.

Dr. Matthew Ladner | March 04, 2008

Democratic activist Steve Barr, founder of the Rock the Vote campaign, has dived into school reform in Los Angeles. Predictably, this has run him straight into the teeth of opposition from the education union.

Burt Prelutsky | March 04, 2008

It strikes me that a lot of my conservative brethren have taken their eye off the big picture.

Thomas Sowell | March 04, 2008

It is fascinating watching politicians say how they are going to rescue the "rust belt" regions where jobs are disappearing and companies are either shutting down or moving elsewhere.

David Limbaugh | March 04, 2008

To me, the greatest irony of the Democratic primary contest is that while Hillary Clinton has tried desperately to make herself more human, Barack Obama has basked in the efforts of others to make him less so.

Ken Blackwell | March 04, 2008

Hillary Clinton might win Ohio on Tuesday, and Texas may essentially be a tie. But even if she loses both, she should continue her campaign. If she does, she may well beat Barack Obama for the nomination.

Cal Thomas | March 04, 2008

As one group attempts to use California public schools as laboratories to assist children in "coming out" with their nontraditional sexual orientation, another is urging parents to come out from these schools.

Dennis Prager | March 04, 2008

Before you take out a second mortgage or otherwise deplete your savings in order to pay for your child's college education, you might want to ask the colleges to which your child is applying some questions.

Pat Buchanan | March 04, 2008

If Canada and Mexico do not renegotiate NAFTA, said Hillary Clinton in the Cleveland debate, she would "opt out" of the trade treaty that was the legislative altarpiece of Bill Clinton's presidency.

Bill Steigerwald | March 04, 2008

If you are a vigilant observer of the global warming debate, you know how inconveniently cold it is in the Arctic this winter for Al Gore and his army of climate alarmists.

Chuck Norris | March 04, 2008

Like most self-help spiritual texts of this type, it is a blend of half-truths and half-fabrications.

Roger Schlesinger | March 04, 2008

Real Estate is here to stay and probably is the best buy we have seen in years for three reasons, which are all related: the weak dollar, the net population growth and the fact that the inflation genie is out of the bottle.

Mon, Mar 03, 2008

Robert Knight | March 03, 2008

What if a presidential candidate claimed that his view on an issue drew its power from the Sermon on the Mount, which was delivered by no less an authority than Jesus Christ?

Rich Lowry | March 03, 2008

Hillary Clinton ceased to be the Democratic front-runner weeks ago, humiliatingly enough for her formerly inevitable campaign.

Morton Blackwell | March 03, 2008

As Virginia's Republican National Committeeman, I'm an automatic delegate to the national convention. I shall vote at the national convention for John McCain and work to elect him in November, for three reasons.

Frank Gaffney | March 03, 2008

Ever wish, upon hearing that yet another of our soldiers or Marines has been killed or wounded while operating in dangerous areas of Iraq or Afghanistan, that you could do something – anything – to reduce the chances it will happen again?

Lee Culpepper | March 03, 2008

Charter schools have benefited from a similar philosophy to the Marine Corps. They, too, “accomplish more with less.”

Phyllis Schlafly | March 03, 2008

Four children including two brothers were killed, and 12 others were hospitalized with injuries, in Minnesota last week when a van reportedly ignored a stop sign and barreled into a school bus.

Kathryn Lopez | March 03, 2008

When larger-than-life William F. Buckley Jr., founder of the magazine I love and the movement I am devoted to, died while working in his study Feb. 27, he left behind a thriving conservative movement.

Chuck Colson | March 03, 2008

This summer the Olympics will be held in Beijing, a decision fraught with controversy since it was announced back in 2001. China’s human-rights record is abysmal.

John McCaslin | March 03, 2008

The tag on the navy blue "Pentagon United States — Dept. of Defense" cap purchased for this columnist on the main concourse of the Pentagon at the Fort America concession reads something surprising.

Rich Galen | March 03, 2008

Let's take a look at that business in Cincinnati last week where a local radio talk show host, warming up the crowd for Sen. John McCain, used Barack Obama's - apparently forbidden - middle name: Hussein.

Star Parker | March 03, 2008

new study shows the central importance of education in getting ahead in our country today.

Suzanne Fields | March 03, 2008

One of the most influential books of our generation, a polemic against consumerism, "commercialism" and greed, turns 50 years old this year.

Paul Greenberg | March 03, 2008

Today's America has quite a different political climate from the one into which William Frank Buckley was born November 24, 1925, mainly because he made the difference.

Donald Lambro | March 03, 2008

William Buckley's pioneering influence in the creation of the modern American conservative movement has been well documented since his passing last week.

Robert Novak | March 03, 2008

Obama bought a mock Georgian mansion on Chicago's south side on June 15, 2005, the same day Tony Rezko's wife bought a plot next door from the same seller.

Harry R. Jackson, Jr. | March 03, 2008

If I was advising the elders of the GOP, I would tell them to kiss and make–up with the evangelical Christian movement.

Dinesh D'Souza | March 03, 2008

There was a playful, outrageous side to Buckley’s personality that should not be forgotten.

Mark Hillman | March 03, 2008

Will our nation trend in a direction that is generally conservative or one that reverses modest gains of the past 28 years and lurches toward cradle-to-grave paternalism?

Sun, Mar 02, 2008

Janice Shaw Crouse | March 02, 2008

The basic problem of the UNFPA booklet and the U.N. approach to adolescent sexuality is that pregnancy and motherhood are not problems.

Guy Benson | March 02, 2008

It's been a rough few weeks for mainstream American journalism.

Nina May | March 02, 2008

There is an elephant in the room that everyone is trying to tiptoe around.

David Stokes | March 02, 2008

In February of 1972 three airplanes, two were charter flights, the third was Air Force One, made their way from the United States to China en route to a rendevous with what historian Margaret McMillan has referred to as “the week that changed the world.”

Jackie Gingrich Cushman | March 02, 2008

While hard work gets us ahead, there appear to be limits. It’s often the times of rest and recovery that provide us with the energy we need to work hard.

Steve Chapman | March 02, 2008

There are lessons there for any institution that goes through a tragedy: Be strong. Hold to your own purposes. Understand that this will pass. Don't let a psychopath govern you from the grave.

Salena Zito | March 02, 2008

What do Hillary Clinton, Mike Huckabee, John McCain and Barack Obama have in common, besides wanting to be the next commander in chief?

Ken Connor | March 02, 2008

From the earliest days of our republic, it has been well understood that the powers of the federal government are limited in scope.

Paul Jacob | March 02, 2008

In this election period, remember the great truths: Politicians lie. Freedom is better than tyranny, free trade better than protectionism. Oh, and the Earth revolves around the Sun.

Austin Hill | March 02, 2008

As the all-important Ohio primary election fast approaches, the dynamic duo have been coddling union organizers there who are trying to “get out the vote,” by convincing their members that the North American Free Trade Agreement is the cause of their economic anxiety today.

Kevin McCullough | March 02, 2008

If William Jefferson Clinton was America's first "black" president, could it be that Barack Obama is positioning himself to be the nation's first "gay" president?
