Doug Giles | September 20, 2008

No, I’m not talking about Sarah Palin, I’m talking about Gianna Jessen.

John McCain | September 20, 2008

Here and all across our country, people are wondering what exactly is happening on Wall Street. And with good reason, they want to know how their government will meet the crisis. Clear answers are hard to come by in Washington.

John McCain | September 20, 2008

Good morning. This is John McCain, speaking to you from Green Bay, Wisconsin.

Carl Horowitz | September 20, 2008

For almost as long as commercial television has existed, its critics, perhaps themselves eager for air time, have lambasted the medium as cultural corrosion.

Phil Harris | September 20, 2008

If we examine the current state of affairs in the credit industry through the lens of common sense, it is not difficult to overcome the insane tendency to ascribe Solomonesque wisdom where it doesn’t belong.

Marvin Olasky | September 19, 2008

The real clash is within each individual, and that makes our current conflict not a World War IV but something more like World War I, a tragic war that could have been avoided had arrogance not been in the saddle, riding mankind.

John Hanlon | September 19, 2008

“Marriages aren’t fireproof.” So states Caleb Holt, the lead character of the new motion picture Fireproof, the third in a series of films created by the Sherwood Baptist Church community in Albany, Georgia.

Suzanne Fields | September 19, 2008

A working woman with five children, the governor of a sovereign state, isn't a sufficient accomplishment. Who knew?

Michelle Malkin | September 19, 2008

Warning: If your neighbor's got an "Obama '08" bumper sticker or lawn sign, you might want to double-check your door locks at night.

Mona Charen | September 19, 2008

Appearing on C-SPAN last weekend I mentioned that Barack Obama had opposed the Born Alive Infants Protection Act when he was an Illinois state senator.

Amanda Carpenter | September 19, 2008

Barack Obama’s campaign has a new advertisement up that accuses John McCain of “lying” about Obama’s record on the Born Alive Infant Protection Act, a bill to protect babies who survived abortion.

Larry Kudlow | September 19, 2008

We can fix this. If nothing else, that’s the message I hope readers take away from this column. Of course, the “this” is the run on the world banking system.

Rich Tucker | September 19, 2008

In difficult financial times, it’s important to make sure you’re taking the right steps toward long-term success.

Hugh Hewitt | September 19, 2008

Since 9/11, I have made a practice of trying to conduct an in-depth interview with every author of every book I consider crucial to understanding the war in which the West is engaged.

Neal Boortz | September 19, 2008

You’ve seen the headlines, and you heard of the failures and buyouts. Lehman Brothers, Bear Stearns, Merrill Lynch, AIG; all big names and all in big trouble.

John Hawkins | September 19, 2008

Barack Obama's surrogates have been trying to convince the American people that his judgment is so impeccable that his lack of experience is irrelevant.

Brent Bozell | September 19, 2008

As part of the microscopic scrutiny applied to Sarah Palin's record, the public has been told that as the incoming mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, in 1996, Palin dared to ask the town librarian what would happen if anyone objected to an inappropriate book.

Jonah Goldberg | September 19, 2008

John McCain insists that the financial crisis is the direct result of Wall Street's "unbridled corruption and greed."

David Limbaugh | September 19, 2008

One has to wonder just how much more Democrats will milk class-warfare politics before people wake up to their deception.

Oliver North | September 19, 2008

For the professional peddlers of anti-Americanism, haters of free enterprise, and true believers in global government, there is only one place that it really pays to perform: the United Nations.

Pat Buchanan | September 19, 2008

What the Greatest Generation handed down to us -- the richest, most powerful, most self-sufficient republic in history, with the highest standard of living any nation had ever achieved -- the baby boomers, oblivious and self-indulgent to the end, have frittered away.

Michael Gerson | September 19, 2008

It is an odd thing to observe a historical debate on events about which one possesses the knowledge of a participant -- something like watching archeologists dig and sift through your living room, proposing their own interpretations of your photos and knickknacks.

Linda Chavez | September 19, 2008

The media have been raking John McCain over the coals the last couple of weeks, accusing the GOP presidential nominee of being dishonest or even lying in his campaign ads.

Charles Krauthammer | September 19, 2008

For the last 150 years, most American war presidents -- most notably Lincoln, Wilson and Roosevelt -- have entered (or re-entered) office knowing war was looming. Not so George Bush.

Kathleen Parker | September 19, 2008

In a rational world, this presidential election would be between Hillary Clinton and John McCain, with their respective running mates Barack Obama and (maybe) Sarah Palin.

Burt Prelutsky | September 19, 2008

Sometimes I think I may be developing ulcers, and it has nothing to do with the way that the New York Yankees are performing this year or with eating spicy food.

Lorie Byrd | September 19, 2008

When it comes to grappling with the details of complex financial matters, I suspect I am like more than a few other voters. My eyes glaze over and my brain disengages.

Mike Gallagher | September 19, 2008

The Democrats sure have been busy this week. They have now dropped any pretense of civility or decency in this remarkable 2008 election season.

Thu, Sep 18, 2008

Rich Lowry | September 18, 2008

One of the era's great illusions was spun by President Bush -- that the force of freedom was so irresistible, it would prevail in a place like Iraq even in the absence of law and order.

Laura Hollis | September 18, 2008

The Obama camp is constantly chanting their mantra about how McCain is "out of touch" with the average American.

Michael Reagan | September 18, 2008

When I was a little boy we used to play a game where we wore a blindfold and tried to put a slip of paper on a drawing of a donkey we couldn't see.

Debra J. Saunders | September 18, 2008

The winning candidate in 2008 may well be the man who can say the worst things about the American economy. That's how he shows he really cares.

Diana West | September 18, 2008

With Wall Street convulsing, and the White House race intensifying, the question "Who lost Europe" is on no one's lips, let alone minds. Indeed, the question begs another: "Is Europe lost?"

Michael Medved | September 18, 2008

Both Joe Biden and Barack Obama appeal to the public with outrageously phony stories about their working class, blue collar backgrounds.

Ross Mackenzie | September 18, 2008

Floating the new water(less) closet — an outhouse, actually a porta-potty for stationary use — across the river and wrestling it up the 15-foot bank, the inquiring mind understandably asks: Why?

Jon Sanders | September 18, 2008

In a famous moment of American oratory, President John F. Kennedy during his inaugural address urged "my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country."

Cliff May | September 18, 2008

Let's be blunt: If John McCain wins the election and drops dead during his first year in office, someone not very experienced will become president.

Amanda Carpenter | September 18, 2008

Democrats have knuckled under to GOP demands to let the congressional ban on offshore drilling and shale recovery in the Rocky Mountains expire on October 1 for a period that will last at least through the rest of the year.

Brent Bozell | September 18, 2008

The McCain campaign went looking for a major anchor to be awarded the blessing and the curse of the first Sarah Palin interview -- a blessing for ratings and a curse from all the competitors who would accuse the winners of being soft on Republicans.

Larry Elder | September 18, 2008

So how did Gov. Sarah Palin, the Republican vice presidential candidate, handle her first big-time sit-down interview?

Ken Blackwell | September 18, 2008

The Dow dropped 504 points as major American corporations nosedived, some of which are being saved with your tax money.

Cal Thomas | September 18, 2008

While the media and politicians blame the usual suspects, greed, like illicit sex, is not held in copyright by either party or political persuasion.

Terry Jeffrey | September 18, 2008

Democratic leaders in the House of Representatives sent a message this week to hard-working commuters forced to pay historically high prices for gasoline: Ride a bike.

Matt Towery | September 18, 2008

More than once I've noted how ironic it is to find folks like the two wealthiest individuals in America, Warren Buffett and Bill Gates supporting Barack Obama and his tax plan.

Emmett Tyrrell | September 18, 2008

The other night, when House Democrats appeared to reverse their long-standing ban on offshore oil drilling, the electorate was hoodwinked again.

George Will | September 18, 2008

Conservatives, who reputedly have lumps of coal where their hearts should be, have fallen in love.

Austin Bay | September 18, 2008

The terms "new" and "old" media tend to distort rational discussion about the change in the way people access information.

Ann Coulter | September 17, 2008

It's another election season, so that means it's time for Democrats to start uttering wild malapropisms about the Bible to pretend they believe in God!

Dick Morris and Eileen McGann | September 17, 2008

There appears to be a gap of between 10 and 20 points between how voters see the parties and what they think of the candidates.

Lisa A. Rickard | September 17, 2008

In 1999, flush with more than a three billion dollar windfall from tobacco lawsuits, plaintiffs’ lawyer Ron Motley reset his crosshairs onto another “deep-pocketed” industry.

Nathan Tabor | September 17, 2008

The images are as wholesome as a Hallmark card—Caroline Kennedy and her little brother John-John gracing the White House.

Paul Kengor | September 17, 2008

Often, maintaining sanity and surviving means simply ignoring the haters.

Lisa A. Rickard | September 17, 2008

In 1999, flush with more than a three billion dollar windfall from tobacco lawsuits, plaintiffs’ lawyer Ron Motley reset his crosshairs onto another “deep-pocketed” industry: companies that had ceased the manufacture and sale of lead-based paint 30 years ago or more.

Thomas Sowell | September 17, 2008

Sometimes you don't know when you are lucky. Certainly I did not consider myself lucky when I left home at seventeen and discovered the hard way that there was no great demand for a black teenage dropout with no experience and no skill.

Michelle Malkin | September 17, 2008

Have you ever heard Hollywood liberals talk about suspected Islamic jihadists the way they talk about suspected Republican "book-banners"?

Here's what the U.S. Constitution says: "All bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with Amendments as on other Bills."

Jonah Goldberg | September 17, 2008

After running a brilliant primary battle to defeat Hillary Clinton, the Obama campaign is now in disarray. Why?

Ben Shapiro | September 17, 2008

Last week, the Barack Obama campaign ran an ad against John McCain. The ad didn't target McCain on policy or even on personality -- it targeted him on his age.

Ed Feulner | September 17, 2008

It’s easy to get a bit complacent on the security front these days. We’ve gone seven years without a terrorist attack on U.S. soil, and we’re seeing progress in Iraq as well. But we still live in a dangerous world.

Bill Murchison | September 17, 2008

This may be the moment to say something warm and affirming about the marketplace economy -- a "Bush doctrine" sort of positioning (if you don't mind, Charlie Gibson) of the battlefront for the economic wars ahead.

Jacob Sullum | September 17, 2008

Larry Kudlow | September 16, 2008

Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson is the man of the hour. This weekend he drew a clear line in the sand: no more federal bailouts. Not for Lehman Brothers.

Thirteen months ago, John McCain’s presidential campaign wheezed into New Hampshire on life support.

Phyllis Schlafly | September 16, 2008

Among those who are not eligible to vote are those who are dead, who are not residents of the precincts where they vote, who are registered to vote in another state, who are underage and especially those who are not citizens.

Roger Schlesinger | September 16, 2008

Correct me if I am wrong, but the main thing hurting the economy is real estate—specifically too much real estate that is sitting empty because of an epidemic of foreclosures.

Amanda Carpenter | September 16, 2008

Troopergate Investigator Stephen Branchflower has been slapped with two lawsuits, one by a group of Alaskan residents who believe his inquiry represents an abuse of their tax dollars and the other by five Republican lawmakers who called Branchflower’s tactics “McCarthyistic.”

Jack Kemp | September 16, 2008

Barack Obama says he supports a tax cut for 95 percent of all Americans. He is referring here to his proposal for a $500 refundable income tax credit for all workers, except those in the top 5 percent of income earners.

Bill Steigerwald | September 16, 2008

Long before Sarah Palin gave Republicans a reason to go on living, it was a good bet that Barack Obama would not win Pennsylvania in November.

Frank Gaffney | September 16, 2008

Chuck Norris | September 16, 2008

I believe a revolution is coming to America. Just as Hurricane Ike slammed into my home state of Texas, I am more and more convinced as every year passes that a needed voter revolution is brewing and will arrive imminently at America's shores and ballot boxes.

John McCaslin | September 16, 2008

Imagine if it were possible for 16 of this nation's most distinguished presidents, past and present, to come together in a relaxed setting, roll up their shirtsleeves, and sit down for a few friendly rounds of poker.

Thomas Sowell | September 16, 2008

To find anything comparable to crowds' euphoric reactions to Obama, you would have to go back to old newsreels of German crowds in the 1930s, with their adulation of their fuehrer, Adolf Hitler.

David Limbaugh | September 16, 2008

In the next few weeks, we're going to hear a lot of hot air from Joe Biden as he tries to recapture the spotlight from Sarah Palin.

Mona Charen | September 16, 2008

The vice presidential debates are still two and a half weeks off, yet Governor Sarah Palin has already demonstrated a toughness under pressure that bodes well for her performance that night and throughout the remainder of the campaign.

Cal Thomas | September 16, 2008

Palin says she will focus on energy, government reform and helping families with special-needs children if she becomes vice president, but to what extent will she consult with McCain on other issues, and how much influence will she have on his decisions?

Dennis Prager | September 16, 2008

On my radio show last week, I twice defended Barack Obama. Once, against those conservatives who took a comment made by Obama in an interview with George Stephanopoulos out of context and suggested that Obama had inadvertently admitted he was a Muslim.

Pat Buchanan | September 16, 2008

Will the neocons who tutored George W. Bush in the ideology he pursued to the ruin of his presidency do the same for Sarah Palin?

Paul Greenberg | September 16, 2008

The latest overblown irrelevance in a presidential campaign full of them was the oh-so-big flap over Barack Obama's not very original comment about pigs and lipstick.

Joel Mowbray | September 16, 2008

Hell hath no fury like the Gray Lady scorned.

Mon, Sep 15, 2008

Rich Lowry | September 15, 2008

A crucial turning point in the presidential race came when the McCain campaign ended its candidate's habitual informal interactions with the press.

Amanda Carpenter | September 15, 2008

The presidential candidates’ reaction to the reaction to the meltdown of yet another massive banker strictly adhered to the major themes of their respective campaigns.

Wayne Brough | September 15, 2008

Technology is a driving force in society, for both businesses and consumers. Indeed, the cyberspace revolution promises gains on the order of those achieved in the earlier industrial revolution.

Hank Adler | September 15, 2008

To the New York Times writers scurrying around Alaska looking for someone to say something bad about Sarah Palin, it must be pretty horrifying stuff to think of a first term reform governor deciding to veto millions of dollars of legislative projects.

Paul Weyrich | September 15, 2008

For the most part ABC News anchor Charles Gibson's interview with Governor Sarah Palin was fair.

Brett Joshpe | September 15, 2008

As Barack Obama and John McCain campaign into the electoral homestretch, both candidates continue battling for the “change” mantel.

John McCaslin | September 15, 2008

Roy Blunt | September 15, 2008

leaders this week are expected to bring forth an energy bill that’s long on political posturing, but short on meaningful solutions.

Harry R. Jackson, Jr. | September 15, 2008

The only negative thing that came out of the Values Voter’s Summit was that two men from Franklin Tennessee (Mark Whitlock and Bob DeMoss) sold a product called “Obama Waffles” at the event until the conference leaders shut them down on Saturday.

Dave Ramsey | September 15, 2008

I’d walk, ride a bike or drive a nine-year old car with over 200,000 miles on it and a few dings in the doors before I had a car payment!

Paul Greenberg | September 15, 2008

Walking by the U.S. courthouse here in Little Rock, a flash of metal outside impinged on my vision, though not much on my consciousness.

Terry Paulson | September 15, 2008

With Palin, Republicans have surged into the lead as a proven team of change and reform.

Robert Knight | September 15, 2008

This past Tuesday (Sept. 9), The Wall Street Journal allowed a homosexual activist to criticize GOP "gay-bashing" on the top of its op-ed page.

Star Parker | September 15, 2008

I care a lot about what Barney Frank thinks, and how he thinks, on any subject that I know matters to him.

Mike Adams | September 15, 2008

I just got an email from our new Provost telling me that I – like everyone else working at the university – must start attending mandatory sexual harassment awareness training sessions every two years.

Burt Prelutsky | September 15, 2008

Oscar Wilde once described a cynic as a man who knew the price of everything and the value of nothing.

Dinesh D'Souza | September 15, 2008

Who Speaks for Islam, written by John Esposito and Dalia Mogahed, is one of the most important books on the War on Terror.

Austin Hill | September 14, 2008

What an amazing escapade in broadcast journalism.

Lee Culpepper | September 14, 2008

Finally, Obamas Greek pillars in Denver make sense.

Phil Harris | September 14, 2008

This is a stunning election season that is ablaze with drama. It is also a stunning season of contrasts.

Jackie Gingrich Cushman | September 14, 2008

When my grandmother (my mother’s mother) was born, women did not have the right to vote. In the rural area where she was born, it was expected she would always live there.

David Stokes | September 14, 2008

The rollout of Sarah Palin as the Republican vice presidential nominee appears to be morphing into a full-fledged juggernaut.

Debra J. Saunders | September 14, 2008

At age 18, an American can enlist in the military, vote, sign a contract, get married, have an operation -- hey, in California, a 14-year-old can have an abortion without telling her parents -- but he cannot buy a beer.

Mary Grabar | September 14, 2008

Every morning God wakes me up and whispers in my ear, “Goest thou, Mary, through Cyber Land and write for the people.

George Will | September 14, 2008

Waves of Slovenians, Bohemians, Irish, Italians and others have crested and receded, and today the Pilsen neighborhood of this polyglot city is a heartland Ellis Island, a port of entry for Mexican immigrants.

Ken Connor | September 14, 2008

Sarah Palin's pick as John McCain's running mate has provoked predictable paroxysms from the Left about her religion.

Paul Jacob | September 14, 2008

The presidential campaign, now in full swing, distracts us from . . . reality.

Salena Zito | September 14, 2008

The intelligent question thrown out among strategists for both campaigns is, can John McCain really win Pennsylvania?
