Donald Lambro | August 16, 2008

There's a big difference between listening to one of Barack Obama's speeches, as inspiring as they may sound, and carefully reading them and weighing each passage.

Conservative Republicans are the closest thing to a natural, steady remedy for what ails this nation.

Rich Tucker | August 15, 2008

When the decrepit Soviet Union collapsed in 1989, it looked as though the U.S. and our allies would be able to preside over a future of peace and prosperity, governing the planet through our soft power (economic sanctions) rather than hard power (military might).

Larry Kudlow | August 15, 2008

The cost of capital would rise under Obama and investment returns would decline by more than 11 percent. Uncle Sam will keep more and investors will retain less, all while the economy is languishing.

Floyd and Mary Beth Brown | August 15, 2008

When Obama gives his stadium acceptance speech at the Democratic convention, it will be the night of the 45th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech. You can count on breathless reporters waxing dreamy about Dr. King’s vision fulfilled that historic night. However, not all African Americans agree.

Dick Morris and Eileen McGann | August 15, 2008

Hillary and Bill have hijacked the Denver convention, making it into a carbon copy of what it would have looked like had she won until the last possible moment. Is an unscripted Obama a pushover?

Hugh Hewitt | August 15, 2008

If you were still having trouble getting motivated about the fall campaign, the crisis in Georgia should remind you of the stakes, and of how the occupant of the Oval Office can either rally the world or, with a call for U.N. mediation like Obama issued, declare the aggressor also the victor.

John Boehner | August 15, 2008

While Americans are forced to deal with this reality each and every day, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her Democratic colleagues adjourned Congress and left Washington on August 1st for a five-week break.

John Hawkins | August 15, 2008

With apologies to Jeff Foxworthy, you just might be a liberal if...

Michelle Malkin | August 15, 2008

I have an 8-year-old daughter. I know what 8-year-old hands and feet and hips and teeth look like. They look a lot like the hands and feet and hips and teeth of the purported "teenagers" on the gold medal-winning Chinese girls' gymnastics team.

Brent Bozell | August 15, 2008

The problem for Hollywood in all that is that marital sex just isn't naughty enough for envelope pushers.

Jonah Goldberg | August 15, 2008

For months now people have been saying to me, "Do you really think they're gone?" "Is it finally over?" "Is the coast clear?"

David Limbaugh | August 15, 2008

Sadly, there isn't the slightest chance liberals will forgo the race narrative in this presidential race because painting the other side as racist is essential to their need to feel morally superior.

Oliver North | August 15, 2008

This British-built fortress, perched on a plateau in southwestern Afghanistan, is well-named.

Pat Buchanan | August 15, 2008

American charges of Russian aggression ring hollow. Georgia started this fight -- Russia finished it.

Suzanne Fields | August 15, 2008

Like Dorian Gray, John Edwards had a painting of himself in the attic, absorbing all the wrinkles from a dissolute life, freeing him to campaign for the presidency fresh, perfectly coiffed and without a trace of a care on his brow.

Diana West | August 15, 2008

Amazing how quickly the punditocracy switches maps, time zones and histories, simultaneously mastering new combinations of consonants and vowels, to report and react to a "surprise" conflict in Georgia.

Linda Chavez | August 15, 2008

A majority minority nation: that's what the U.S. Census Bureau is projecting by the year 2042, according to new figures released this week.

Paul Greenberg | August 15, 2008

He was handsome, calculating, brilliant, ambitious and accomplished, always willing to dare great things for his country. He had his critics, indeed enemies.

Kathleen Parker | August 15, 2008

Even as China's opening ceremonies for the Olympics inspired awe, there was something repellent in the exactitude of such mass perfection.

Burt Prelutsky | August 15, 2008

A few weeks ago, I was listening to a radio talk show when a black man called in to take Barack Obama to task for suggesting that black men were sloughing off their responsibility as fathers.

Thu, Aug 14, 2008

Rich Lowry | August 14, 2008

A vice-presidential pick is always important, but John McCain confronts a starkly existential choice this year.

Dick Morris and Eileen McGann | August 14, 2008

As we watched Russian tanks and planes attack yet another small neighbor, the world had to be reminded of Hungary, Czechoslovakia, and Afghanistan, three other countries that had to watch their freedom crushed beneath tank treads.

Michael Reagan | August 14, 2008

In any struggle between the dreamers and the realists the realists always win.

Paul Weyrich | August 14, 2008

Politics, it said, makes for strange bedfellows. I have seen hundreds of examples in the many years I have been involved in politics.

Fred Thompson | August 14, 2008

This crisis half a world away confirms what I’ve been saying for a while: This election cycle, the traffic in the world is very heavy …and dangerous; it’s no time to give a kid with barely a learner’s permit the keys to the car.

Cliff May | August 14, 2008

If you don’t live in Washington, New York, or another big city, you may think: “Even if the terrorists do strike again on American soil, my hometown and my family probably aren’t in danger.”

Ross Mackenzie | August 14, 2008

The death of Alexander Solzhenitsyn, at 89, recalls the centrality of this Russian mastodon.

John McCaslin | August 14, 2008

Ann Coulter | August 14, 2008

The good news: DNA testing has confirmed that John Edwards is not the father of Rielle Hunter's baby. The bad news: The father is Bill Clinton.

Victor Davis Hanson | August 14, 2008

Brace yourself -- we may be on our way back to an old world, where the strong do as they will, and the weak suffer as they must.

Larry Elder | August 14, 2008

An illegal alien from Mexico, Pedro Espinoza, allegedly asked that of Jamiel Shaw Jr., 17 -- before Espinoza shot and killed him.

Mike Adams | August 14, 2008

President Jacobs, it is now abundantly evident that you did not fire Crystal Dixon because she could not perform her duties at UT. You fired her because she disagrees with your political views.

Mona Charen | August 14, 2008

Hillary Clinton's best anti-Obama ad came to be known as the "3 a.m. phone call."

Cal Thomas | August 14, 2008

Vladimir Putin, who continues to effectively run Russia through his hand-picked "successor," President Dmitry Medvedev, still resembles what he once was

Matt Towery | August 14, 2008

There was a time when the political conventions meant something.

Emmett Tyrrell | August 14, 2008

After decades as ardent fans of Grand Prix racing and international swimming competition, we have come to the conclusion that in both, sports engineering has become more important than the competitors.

Charles Krauthammer | August 14, 2008

The Russia-Georgia cease-fire brokered by France's president is less than meets the eye.

Ken Blackwell | August 14, 2008

Douglas MacKinnon | August 14, 2008

When: The Islamists obtain a nuclear weapon, they will use it against the United States or one of our allies...

Brian Fitzpatrick | August 13, 2008

Much to the chagrin of America’s journalistic Old Guard, recent Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards has confirmed the scandal they were refusing to cover.

Paul Weyrich | August 13, 2008

As I watched the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games and witnessed the incredible images created by the Chinese people, my mind flashed back to the late Boris Yeltsin.

There have been repeated accusations that some of the principal players in the immigration debate have received money from dubious sources, have ties to shady political figures, and deliberately use intemperate language.

John McCaslin | August 13, 2008

Can't wait for Nov. 4 to find out who will be the next occupant of the White House?

John Stossel | August 13, 2008

Most everyone says anti-discrimination laws are good laws, especially those that protect older workers. But they're not.

Walter E. Williams | August 13, 2008

Most people know the tragic state of black education today. We know that billions of dollars are spent on federal government programs such as No Child Left Behind and the billions spent by state and local governments.

Brent Bozell | August 13, 2008

These people's morality is so bizarre that they showed more outrage at John McCain featuring a picture of Paris Hilton in a commercial for two eye-blinks than for Edwards catting around on a dying spouse.

Tony Blankley | August 13, 2008

Russian intentions are quite clear. Georgia has cozied up to Uncle Sam as part of a nearly two-decades-long effort by the United States to bring the former non-Russian Soviet republics.

Michael Medved | August 13, 2008

Democratic strategists loudly insist that the tawdry sex scandal consuming John Edwards will do no damage to the Obama campaign.

Terry Jeffrey | August 13, 2008

Republicans may be planning a crude surprise for Democrats this October. I mean crude in the sense that it will involve unrefined petroleum.

Ben Shapiro | August 13, 2008

A man, they say, can be judged by his friends. If that's the case, then Barack Obama can surely be judged by George Clooney.

Austin Bay | August 13, 2008

As I write this column, Russian troops have halted their main attack just short of Tbilisi, Georgia's capital.

Kathleen Parker | August 13, 2008

Former Republican Rep. Jim Leach (Iowa) endorsed Democratic candidate Barack Obama for president Tuesday, joining a small group of unreliable, liberal Republicans who are calling themselves “Republicans for Obama.”

Republicans are planning to emphasize the theme of “Country First” during the four days of the GOP convention where John McCain will formally accepts his party’s nomination for president.

John McCaslin | August 12, 2008

Stewards of the Fourth Estate caution against it: one reporter after another, newspaper and broadcast, being called upon to plaster makeup on their faces, go in front of the camera, and offer opinions — and often biases — surrounding the news of the day.

Thomas Sowell | August 12, 2008

Many years ago, when I was a college student, I took a course from John Kenneth Galbraith. On the first day of class, Professor Galbraith gave a brilliant opening lecture, after which the students gave him a standing ovation.

Chuck Norris | August 12, 2008

Now that John Edwards has admitted to his affair with 42-year-old Rielle Hunter, the big test looms again before the American public: Do we care? Do we think it matters?

Mike Adams | August 12, 2008

I am writing to express my grave disappointment with media relations personnel at The University of Toledo. I have submitted to them a series of very simple questions concerning your recent decision to fire Crystal Dixon.

ABC reports that the group "Democrats for Life," whose title gives new meaning to "oxymoronic," decided last week not to press the Democratic Party to restore a life-tolerant "conscience clause" to its party platform.

Cal Thomas | August 12, 2008

It's the plot for "Mamma Mia," but this time without the ABBA music.

Dennis Prager | August 12, 2008

The following is a list of beliefs that I hold. Nearly every one of them was a liberal position until the late 1960s. Not one of them is now.

Pat Buchanan | August 12, 2008

In the Pennsylvania primary, Barack Obama rolled up more than 90 percent of the African-American vote. Among Catholics, he lost by 40 points.

Debra J. Saunders | August 12, 2008

The pretty-boy candidate always was the biggest phony at any Democratic debate. He was the $400-haircut poster boy for poverty. The 28,000-square-foot mansion owner who preached about global warming.

Bill Murchison | August 12, 2008

When it's "change" you're merchandising, the easy phrases flow easily enough. Walls between people "cannot stand." With "improbable hope," we prepare to "to remake the world once again" -- "a world that stands as one."

William Rusher | August 12, 2008

Almost without realizing it, America appears to be on the verge of electing its first black president.

Rich Lowry | August 12, 2008

President Bush's assurance back in 2001 that he looked into Vladimir Putin's soul and liked what he saw was the international equivalent of his "heckuva job" boosterism of Federal Emergency Management Agency Director Michael Brown.

Paul Weyrich | August 12, 2008

Last week President George W. Bush attended the opening of the Olympics in Beijing, China, the first American President to attend outside his own country.

Debra J. Saunders | August 12, 2008

The pretty-boy candidate always was the biggest phony at any Democratic debate.

David Strom | August 11, 2008

It has become popular for politicians to advocate going after oil companies for their seemingly outsized profits. Otherwise rational people turn red-faced with anger when they think about the tens of billions of dollars flowing into the coffers of “big oil.”

John Andrews | August 11, 2008

In my state of Colorado, early August used to be the season for celebrating the anniversary of our admission to statehood in 1876.

Mike Adams | August 11, 2008

Does the University of Toledo have a zero tolerance policy regarding intolerance? This is an important and legitimate question that you should answer.

Tom Tancredo | August 11, 2008

Senator Obama went to Berlin and told a crowd of 200,000 Europeans that he was speaking to them not as a candidate for President of the United States, but as “a fellow citizen of the world."

Andrew Langer | August 11, 2008

The longer one works in DC, the more one gets used to things that make that city unique.

Mark Hillman | August 11, 2008

Unless you've been imbibing 100-proof hope-and-change, you could hardly listen to Obama's Berlin speech without questioning whether there is anything that he is truly willing to fight for.

Tom Price | August 11, 2008

This morning, Republicans will return to the dimmed floor of the House of Representatives to continue to fight on behalf of American families hurting from high gas prices.

Ken Connor | August 10, 2008

Change! It's the mantra of the political season. But what kind of change—from what to what?

Lee Culpepper | August 10, 2008

With Obama’s lead in the polls disappearing, a steady stream of doubt is now being poured over Obama’s nervous and inverted campaign. The great orator appears ready to crack.

Barack Obama is in the chorus of liberal Democrats who continually oppose strict constructionists who want to honor the original intent of the Constitution.

George Will | August 10, 2008

The Oxford English Dictionary dates the word "pogrom" from 1905, the year hundreds of Russian Jews were massacred in Odessa. In 1908, there was a pogrom of sorts in Illinois.

Austin Hill | August 10, 2008

What an interesting week…

Paul Jacob | August 10, 2008

Discrimination on the grounds of race or sex? Wrong -- unless you are a leftist who will do ANYthing to preserve "affirmative action," by (literally) any means necessary.

Kevin McCullough | August 10, 2008

What of the horrific conditions that government's choke-hold control over the marketplace--a hold that disallows hard work to fully succeed?

Salena Zito | August 10, 2008

A longtime Western Pennsylvania politician once said, "You run with the top of the ticket when you can, and run away from it when you have to."
