Dick Morris and Eileen McGann | August 01, 2008

When is the McCain campaign going to get serious? It seems to be marking time with softball ads, more appropriate to the soundbites campaign media spokespeople exchange with one another than to strategic paid media hits.

Burt Prelutsky | August 01, 2008

Considering how much the left-wing media adores this guy -- and let us never forget that Obama has managed to send shivers up Chris Matthews’ leg -- I suppose nothing should surprise me.

Larry Elder | July 31, 2008

Ken Blackwell | July 31, 2008

Nancy Pelosi wants to the save the planet. That was the House speakers answer to why she is not allowing a vote on expanding domestic oil drilling.

Cal Thomas | July 31, 2008

Most inhumanities start small, like the beginning of a tsunami, but then build, as they head toward inevitable and unstoppable destruction.

If soccer moms determined the outcome of the 1996 presidential race and security moms tipped the balance in 2004, it is beginning to look as if older moms are the key to the 2008 contest.

Debra J. Saunders | July 31, 2008

I'll say this for John McCain -- he doesn't hide behind his staff.

Rebecca Hagelin | July 31, 2008

It used to be called “shacking up.” Now it’s just another lifestyle choice.

Frank Turek | July 31, 2008

Barack Obama’s recent op-ed in the New York Times declares, “It’s time to end this war.” (You remember that Senator McCain tried to respond, but the Times apparently wanted to give McCain his opinion)

Andrew P. McIndoe | July 31, 2008

One of Barack Obama’s favorite rappers is calling Hillary Clinton an offensive, derogatory word for females in his new song.

The Associated Press and other media used similar words: "indicted polygamist sect leader Warren Jeffs ... charges of felony sexual assault of a child."

Walter E. Williams | July 30, 2008

Brent Bozell | July 30, 2008

Newsweek's love for Barack Obama knows no bounds. After Obama's speech in Berlin, Newsweek published a headline that suggests an editor who's spent six days drunk on a merry-go-round.

Bud Weinstein | July 29, 2008

Dennis Prager | July 29, 2008

To better understand Sen. Barack Obama, his speech before 200,000 Germans in Berlin is one good place to start. As we shall see, however, it does not leave one secure as to the senator's understanding of history.

Pat Buchanan | July 29, 2008

Obama -- and John McCain, who has endorsed the build-up -- should, before committing any more combat brigades, explain how and when this war ends in an American victory.

Ed Feulner | July 29, 2008

Rich Lowry | July 28, 2008

Frank Gaffney | July 28, 2008

Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama’s single most illuminating statement in the course of a just-completed overseas tour was his self-description during the stop in Berlin as a “citizen of the world.”

Richard H. Collins | July 28, 2008

Is Senator Barack Obama the next John F. Kennedy or Richard Nixon? This may seem like an odd question given their party affiliation.

Paul Greenberg | July 28, 2008

Why do politicians pride themselves on being working class, or at least having working-class origins? For the same reason 19th-century presidential candidates were almost required to have been born in a log cabin.

Burt Prelutsky | July 28, 2008

Because December 7, 1941, was when the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, FDR quite aptly called it a day that would live in infamy. For Israel, July 15, 2008, is just such a date.

Robert Novak | July 28, 2008

Obama's lead in the polls over McCain is fragile because he so far has not won the support of a majority of American voters.

John McCain does not need Pennsylvania to win the White House, but Obama sure does.

Paul Jacob | July 27, 2008

Politicians in Florida are hell bent on sending an anti-tax crusader to prison, for the crime of mailing a public document to his neighbors.
