Like millions of other Americans, I have contributed copious amounts patriotic energy and a good deal of couch-potato time to observing every minute of Olympic coverage offered by NBC and its various progeny—including, of course, the advertisements produced by numerous sponsors.
For the first time in this presidential cycle, social issues such as abortion took center stage this past week courtesy of the candidates’ high-profile, back-to-back interviews at a mega-church last weekend.
Addressing the Veterans of Foreign Wars Convention in Orlando, Barack Obama declared, "I will let no one question my love of this country."
You can always tell when you've scored points against a liberal candidate. He and his minions, following the combined examples of Bill Clinton and John Kerry, immediately assume counterattack mode.
Perhaps money can’t buy love, but it can certainly purchase power. So as oil prices have been rising, the major oil-producing nations have been gaining clout.
In case you missed them, some items of dubious import currently in the news. . . At the Olympics, Chinese authorities have restricted access not only to Web sites, protest areas, leading dissidents and key regions of the country.
It's ironic that when former aides or colleagues of prominent Democrats opine on the presidential race, for example Donna Brazile, who appears both on ABC and CNN and ran Al Gore's 2000 campaign, they are never asked to do a mea culpa about potential bias or conflicts.
This week, Barack Obama's challenge is to select a running mate who's young, hip, and whose accomplishments in life don't overshadow Obama's. Allow me to suggest Kevin Federline.
In a year that has seemed so bleak for Republicans, John McCain not only can upset Barack Obama and win the White House, he can change the voting dynamic of American Jews.
Is John McCain’s campaign sputtering along the same track that Gerald Ford’s and Bob Dole’s did? History--after November 4, 2008--will tell.
Why do conservatives and liberals respond so differently to the current war in Georgia?
Surveying the wreckage in Georgia where more than 100,000 people are without homes, running water and food, the question remains: what could have been done to divert this disaster?
I hate to rain on John McCain's parade right after he trounced Barack Obama at Rick Warren's Saddleback Church forum, for which I heartily applaud him, but McCain's trial balloon consideration of a pro-choice running mate demands a response.
I hope my six-decades-long reputation as a redoubtable Cold Warrior will protect me from the suspicion that "Rusher has gone soft on Moscow" if I confess that I am considerably less worried by Russia's recent move into Georgia than many American observers seem to be.
Lake Forest, Orange County—When President Bill Clinton played his saxophone on the late-night “Arsenio Hall Show” in 1992, it was obvious that presidential campaigns had changed.
Not even the finest piece of machinery is safe from the ignorance or just malice of those operating it, as many an engineer has discovered.
Earlier this decade, the Born Alive Infant Protection Act was introduced in the Illinois state legislature after a Chicago area nurse named Jill Stanek blew the whistle on a practice she personally witnessed at her hospital. Barack Obama was the lone legislator who rose to speak against the bill.
While some of us have more money than time and some have more time than money, we all have the same amount of time - 24 hours per day. It is up to each of us to determine how to spend our time. Will we make our time worthwhile or simply while away the hours?
