Doug Giles | October 11, 2008

If our nation goes down the secular crapper, then I lay a lot of the blame on the limp-wrist Christian media.

John McCain | October 11, 2008

Good morning. This is John McCain, speaking to you at the end of another week filled with troubling news about our economy.

Floyd and Mary Beth Brown | October 11, 2008

What in the world was Judge Ricardo Urbina thinking when he ordered the immediate release of 17 Chinese Muslim terrorists into Washington, D.C., our nation’s capital?

Michael Barone | October 11, 2008

"I need you to go out and talk to your friends and talk to your neighbors," Barack Obama told a crowd in Elko, Nev. "I want you to talk to them whether they are independent or whether they are Republican."

Paul Driessen | October 11, 2008

Environmentalists, journalists and politicians say tough climate legislation is a moral imperative.

Larry Kudlow | October 11, 2008

Yes, the months ahead are going to be tough. But I remain optimistic that our free democracy and free-market economy will survive this crisis, as well.

Michael Medved | October 10, 2008

Michael Medved interviews Sen. John McCain

Roger Schlesinger | October 10, 2008

As I begin writing this column I must admit two things

Dick Morris and Eileen McGann | October 10, 2008

For McCain to win this election (which he still can) the furor over the stock market will have to calm down so that popular attention can focus on Barack Obama.

Carrie Lukas | October 10, 2008

Calls for greater education funding are a staple of Democratic campaigns. The latest is an advertisement by Senator Obama accusing Senator John McCain of "taking money away from public schools" to give to special interests.

Kathryn Lopez | October 10, 2008

Speaking to a group of young Catholics in New York almost one month before Election Day, I had a harsh awakening as jarring as a shot of Wild Turkey 101. Weeks before going to the polling booth, Americans do not know Barack Obama.

Kristen Fyfe | October 10, 2008

For the third time, Newsweek religion reporter Lisa Miller has informed the world that Kirbyjon Caldwell, an African-America pastor from Texas, who formerly supported President George W. Bush, has “given himself heart and soul” to Democratic nominee Barack Obama.

Rich Tucker | October 10, 2008

Debate night in America. In a format designed to eliminate spontaneity and mistakes (so the leader in the polls can “win” by “not losing”), we watch perfectly dressed candidates present perfectly coached answers to perfectly predictable questions delivered by a “perfectly neutral” moderator.

Brett Joshpe | October 10, 2008

Go to Barack Obama’s website and you can find a “Kids for Obama” section.

Jerry Bowyer | October 10, 2008

I know that you’re deluged with people who are sure that they see what’s wrong and what should be done.

Sandy Rios | October 10, 2008

Rich Galen | October 10, 2008

Welcome to the People's Republic of the United States of America where the government owns everything.

Hugh Hewitt | October 10, 2008

Three weeks is an eternity, but while the beginning has been made, there is a long way to go. Straight talk has never been so necessary and so overdue.

John Hawkins | October 10, 2008

I'd like to explain to the independents out there why they should want John McCain in the White House next year instead of Barack Obama.

Thomas Sowell | October 10, 2008

Barack Obama's supporters often try to sidestep questions about his character and judgment by saying that we should stick to what they arbitrarily define as "the real issues."

Michelle Malkin | October 10, 2008

Republicans don't need to dress up for Halloween this year. They're scaring the pants off Barack Obama's followers by their mere presence. Anything they say, wear or do provokes instant cries of "RAAAAACISM!" Wink, blink or think critical thoughts about Obama? You're a bigot!

Brent Bozell | October 10, 2008

Just like Bill Maher, "Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane is discovering that atheist ridicule of Jesus Christ and Christianity draws nothing but yawns from today's media elite.

Jonah Goldberg | October 10, 2008

Under Barack Obama's plan, 95 percent of Americans will get a tax cut. John McCain's plan will deliver portable, affordable health care to all Americans. Obama has a plan to win in Afghanistan.

David Limbaugh | October 10, 2008

Democrats assume Republicans are raising Obama's many questionable relationships in a desperation effort to salvage the election. You might think this is splitting hairs, but I believe the reason is that these relationships scare the daylights out of us.

Oliver North | October 10, 2008

We're now into the 10th month of an election year, and the so-called mainstream media are on the lookout for an "October surprise."

Pat Buchanan | October 10, 2008

As of today, the country is not so much voting for Barack and the Democrats as it is preparing to vote against the Republicans.

Michael Gerson | October 10, 2008

A specter is haunting the presidential race -- and it is not just the economy. It is the specter of a nuclear Iran.

Matt Towery | October 10, 2008

For years I have watched as pandering politicians and other slick and shameless hucksters have manipulated public opinion and dodged reality.

Diana West | October 10, 2008

I realized something after Tuesday night's debate: If (big if) Barack Obama is not elected president next month, it will not be John McCain who defeats him.

Linda Chavez | October 10, 2008

Was John McCain playing the race card when he referred to Barack Obama as "that one" in Tuesday's presidential debate? Obama's campaign and its echo chamber in the media surely want us to think so.

Paul Greenberg | October 10, 2008

When is a debate not a debate? When it’s televised, media-umpired, poll-monitored, spun to death and endlessly second-guessed. Then it’s less a debate than a spectator sport.

Donald Lambro | October 10, 2008

As bleak as things look right now, there are reasons to believe we may get through this economic decline sooner than the pessimists' predictions of one to two years.

Larry Kudlow | October 10, 2008

Fear and panic have taken over the stock market, the banking system, and the economy. It is one of those moments in history when people feel helpless, frustrated, and bewildered about what’s going on and why it’s happening.

Charles Krauthammer | October 10, 2008

Convicted felon Tony Rezko. Unrepentant terrorist Bill Ayers. And the race-baiting Rev. Jeremiah Wright. It is hard to think of any presidential candidate before Barack Obama sporting associations with three more execrable characters.

Kathleen Parker | October 10, 2008

If you're a Democrat who needs help getting the votes of rural white folks, the go-to guy is David "Mudcat" Saunders, a central-casting political consultant recently made famous by a parade of magazine writers led by The Weekly Standard's Matt Labash.

Thu, Oct 09, 2008

Michael Reagan | October 09, 2008

To listen to the Obama spin-masters you’d think that the McCain campaign’s questioning of their candidate’s association with unrepentant terrorist bomber Bill Ayers is a smear tactic falsely elevating a casual relationship.

Shawn Akers | October 09, 2008

Is this what they meant by 'bringing the Left and the Right together?'

Paul Weyrich | October 09, 2008

One radio listener dubbed the second Presidential debate as a contest between the Fresh Prince of Bel Air and Fred Mertz. Talk about boring. I had a difficult time keeping awake.

Amanda Carpenter | October 09, 2008

GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin described her rival Barack Obama’s radical position on abortion as “absolutely atrocious” on Laura Ingraham’s radio program Thursday.

David Strom | October 09, 2008

Believe it or not, one of the most striking facts about the U.S. economy over the past 25 years has been the relative stability it has enjoyed—until all hell broke loose the last few months.

Amanda Carpenter | October 09, 2008

Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama was the first national candidate ever to hire ACORN, a controversial non-profit accused of voter fraud across the country, for get out the vote activities.

Mario Diaz | October 09, 2008

To hear Senator and vice-presidential candidate Joe Biden (D-Delaware) make the claim was surprising, but not nearly as shocking as the lack of attention paid to his remarks.

Paul Kengor | October 09, 2008

A casualty of the left’s hatred for President George W. Bush has been a destructive inability to separate fact from fiction in the ongoing history of the war in Iraq.

Bob Barr | October 09, 2008

Senator John McCain attempted to disguise reality by calling the $700 billion Wall Street bailout a “rescue,” but it’s obvious that the only people he and his colleagues were rescuing were the executives who had made bad investment decisions.

Lee Culpepper | October 09, 2008

If Obama and Democrats were truly the party of diversity, why would they want to eliminate Americas distinctive, capitalist society from the world? Arent there already enough mediocre, socialist nations clogging up the globe?

Cliff May | October 09, 2008

Twenty-five years ago, several hundred U.S. Marines were stationed in Beirut on a peace-keeping mission.

Frank Pastore | October 09, 2008

Frank Pastore, from KKLA in Los Angeles, recently interviewed Stanley Kurtz, Senior Fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center.

Thomas Sowell | October 09, 2008

What about those "real issues" that Barack Obama's supporters in the media say we should get back to, whenever some new unsavory fact about his past comes out?

Larry Elder | October 09, 2008

So, what do "the rich" pay in federal income taxes? Nothing, right? That, at least, is what most people think. And Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama wants to raise the top marginal rate for "the rich" -- known in some quarters as "job creators."

Mona Charen | October 09, 2008

In honor of the Jewish New Year, which reaches its culmination on Yom Kippur, a solemn day of fasting and repentance that falls this year on Oct. 9, I'd like to take a moment to recognize the open Jew-baiting that is enthusiastically enjoyed by our nation's leading newspaper.

Cal Thomas | October 09, 2008

The audience at the second presidential debate/town hall meeting was, supposedly, made up of "undecided" voters.

Debra J. Saunders | October 09, 2008

Two important questions were asked at Tuesday night's presidential debate.

Emmett Tyrrell | October 09, 2008

How is it that an attractive woman who has been involved in state and local government since the early 1990s without much controversy is passed off in the media now as an airhead?

Steve Chapman | October 09, 2008

Just a couple of weeks ago, Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke asked Congress to approve a $700 billion rescue of the banking industry.

Larry Kudlow | October 09, 2008

While the presidential candidates were debating in Nashville on Tuesday night, the Asian stock markets were selling off by 10 percent.

Robert Novak | October 09, 2008

"60 Minutes," the popular CBS news program, normally doesn't deal with global finance, but last Sunday (Oct. 5) its lead story tried to isolate the cause of the current global financial meltdown.

Ross Mackenzie | October 09, 2008

Despite the press fencing him as a "lunch-bucket Democrat," he came across less as "smooth" than as too slick by half.

George Will | October 09, 2008

In the closing days of his 10-year quest for the presidency, McCain finds it galling that Barack Obama is winning the first serious campaign he has ever run against a Republican.

Wed, Oct 08, 2008

Dick Morris and Eileen McGann | October 08, 2008

In the best tradition of Bill Clinton’s famous declaration that the answer to the question of whether or not he was having an affair with Monica depended on "what the definition of 'is' is," Barack Obama was clearly splitting hairs and concealing the truth when he said that William Ayers was "just a guy who lives in my neighborhood."

Maggie Gallagher | October 08, 2008

When John Murtagh was 9 years old, Bill Ayers' friends tried to kill him.

Ann Coulter | October 08, 2008

If Sarah Palin had made just one of the wildly inaccurate statements smugly uttered by Sen. Joe Biden in last week's vice presidential debate, there would have been 3-inch headlines in newspapers across America.

Robert Knight | October 08, 2008

If you’re noticing your TV screen turning pink, it’s not just your imagination.

Amanda Carpenter | October 08, 2008

GOP presidential candidate John McCain proposed a massive $300 bailout for struggling homeowners, on top of the $300 billion passed by Congress last July during Tuesday’s presidential debate.

Dick Morris and Eileen McGann | October 08, 2008

John McCain probably won last night's debate on points - but he needed a knockout, and he didn't get it.

John McCaslin | October 08, 2008

Gone forever is "The War Room" of Bill Clinton's 1992 campaign, manned by political newcomers Paul Begala, Dee Dee Myers, James Carville and George Stephanopoulos.

Rich Galen | October 08, 2008

Scott Bensing | October 08, 2008

Democratic Senate candidates continually fail on economic issues.

Amanda Carpenter | October 08, 2008

GOP presidential candidate John McCain landed several heavy blows on his Democratic opponent Barack Obama at the second presidential debate, but refrained from mentioning Obama’s relationship with domestic terrorist William Ayers.

Thomas Sowell | October 08, 2008

A recent Republican campaign ad sarcastically described as Barack Obama's "one accomplishment" his supporting a bill to promote sex education in kindergarten.

Michelle Malkin | October 08, 2008

Systemic corruption of our election process continues. Barack Obama and his old friends at ACORN and Project Vote are leading the way.

John Stossel | October 08, 2008

When so many politicians speak with one voice in support of the biggest act of government intervention in the economy in generations, I cringe.

Walter E. Williams | October 08, 2008

In my more cynical moments, I think that we Americans deserve what we get from our politicians, many of whom can be generally described as nothing less than loathsome.

Brent Bozell | October 08, 2008

They're out there finding fault only with the evil private sector. The mushrooming federal government and the stewards of its never-ending expansion cannot be questioned.

Jonah Goldberg | October 08, 2008

Yes, this morning everyone will be talking about last night’s presidential debate. But I can’t get over Thursday’s vice presidential contest.

Tony Blankley | October 08, 2008

There was a joke going around conservative circles during the mid-1960s that we conservatives were warned that if we voted for Barry Goldwater, America would get deeper into the Vietnam War.

Michael Medved | October 08, 2008

Final returns are still weeks away, but it's not too early to acknowledge one of the big surprises of the presidential election of 2008: the disastrous decline of fringe party candidates in a year that once seemed ripe for their efforts.

Michael Gerson | October 08, 2008

It is a shame that a discussion of health care policy has come near the end of the presidential campaign, when the level of discourse is at its lowest.

Terry Jeffrey | October 08, 2008

The most telling debate Barack Obama ever had was not with John McCain but Patrick O'Malley, who served with Obama in the Illinois Senate and engaged Obama in a colloquy every American should read.

Ben Shapiro | October 08, 2008

I know you've been enthusiastic about the Obama candidacy this campaign season. I know it because the media says so. I know it because the polls say so. Most of all, I know it because your professors say so.

Jacob Sullum | October 08, 2008

The Republican Party "is increasingly populist," reporter Jackie Calmes averred, and "populists do not favor bailouts of Wall Street."

Kathleen Parker | October 08, 2008

When Sarah Palin said she was taking off the gloves, she wasn't just whistling "Onward, Christian Soldiers."

Tony Blankley | October 08, 2008

There was a joke going around conservative circles during the mid-1960s that we conservatives were warned that if we voted for Barry Goldwater, America would get deeper into the Vietnam War.

Political Assaults Help Uncover Pols’ Flaws For The Voters

Maggie Gallagher | October 07, 2008

When John Murtagh was 9 years old, Bill Ayers' friends tried to kill him.

Armstrong Williams | October 07, 2008

Sanctuary Cities” are replicating disease like throughout the country. These make-shift communities serve as safe havens for illegal immigrants, with sometimes tragic results.

Donald Lambro | October 07, 2008

The number of Republican red states where Barack Obama leads is growing, reducing the states that are in play and thus the electoral votes that John McCain needs to win in November.

Laura Hollis | October 07, 2008

I thought I’d seen everything with Bob Dole’s blundering “I-deserve-to-be-elected-because-it’s-my-turn” schtick in 1996. He had no message.

Roger Schlesinger | October 07, 2008

As the stock market flutters and moves lower and while the rest of the world is starting to shake we are led to believe that approximately 6 million Americans, who have or are going to have a foreclosed property are the cause of the entire mess.

Dick Morris and Eileen McGann | October 07, 2008

The polls now all indicate an Obama win on Nov. 4; some even suggest a landslide. But there's a strong chance the race will tighten back up this month.

Bill Murchison | October 07, 2008

"Grow up or die," Bill Maher admonishes viewers at the end of "Religulous," which is kind of an odd statement for a guy to make on wrapping up a cinematic assault on religion: mocking, jesting, wise-guying to beat the band.

Amanda Carpenter | October 07, 2008

Since Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin has specifically targeted Barack Obama on the campaign trail for “palling around” with domestic terrorist William Ayers, Obama’s chief advisors seem to be at loss for words.

Frank Pastore | October 07, 2008

On September 10, 2008, a video of actor Matt Damon was released to the press that quickly got posted on YouTube, and has now gotten over two million hits. Here’s what he said.

Amanda Carpenter | October 07, 2008

Former Democratic presidential candidate George McGovern is unveiling a $30 million campaign to oppose Democratic-backed “card check” legislation that would eliminate the secret ballot process required to unionize workplaces.

John McCaslin | October 07, 2008

"It's the economy, stupid!" all over again.

Thomas Sowell | October 07, 2008

Critics of Senator Barack Obama make a strategic mistake when they talk about his "past associations." That just gives his many defenders in the media an opportunity to counter-attack against "guilt by association."

Chuck Norris | October 07, 2008

Tombstone, Ariz., has nothing on Washington, D.C. Friday's financial OK Corral took place when federal politicians had a standoff over the mother of all bailout bills.

Mona Charen | October 07, 2008

I had an experience wearing a headscarf last week that was culturally and politically interesting. More on that in a minute. It made me think of Michelle Obama.

Ken Blackwell | October 07, 2008

Election Day this year may bring the kind of chaos you expect from a category-five hurricane - with radical groups sending the nation into a protracted legal battle even worse than the mess back in 2000. To prevent it, we must act now.

Cal Thomas | October 07, 2008

In recent elections when a high-profile Roman Catholic Democrat seeks high, or higher office, the issue of abortion surfaces.

Dennis Prager | October 07, 2008

Just as Charlie Gibson did in his interview with Sarah Palin, Katie Couric set out to humiliate the Republican vice-presidential candidate with a series of "gotcha" questions.

Pat Buchanan | October 07, 2008

"(O)nce war is forced upon us, there is no other alternative than to apply every available means to bring it to a swift end.

Debra J. Saunders | October 07, 2008

The only way Congress could pass a $700 billion economic bailout package last week was to spend an extra $110 billion that the federal government does not have.

Larry Kudlow | October 07, 2008

John McCain needs a knockout performance at Tuesday night's presidential debate if he is to keep his hopes alive.

Heather Higgins | October 07, 2008

In the wake of financial upheaval, McCain’s prospects have plummeted. The campaign’s response has not helped – erratic, desperate to get this behind them, and, if the Biden-Palin debate is a harbinger, blaming Wall Street greed as the cause of all that ails. In short, the Obama approach.

David Limbaugh | October 07, 2008

There are many reasons that Sarah Palin is energizing the conservative base.

Mon, Oct 06, 2008

Harry R. Jackson, Jr. | October 06, 2008

While all this excitement is taking place nationally, there is a quiet tragedy brewing that can have just as much impact as the financial crisis.

Doug Giles | October 06, 2008

This past week Obama added to his rogue gallery of support groups another radical band of anti-American spirit lunatics.

Amanda Carpenter | October 06, 2008

The Republican National Committee filed a 49-page complaint against Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama’s campaign Monday, alleging Obama had knowingly and excessively accepted contributions from foreign nationals.

Frank Gaffney | October 06, 2008

Suddenly, the presidential campaigns are addressing an issue that should have been at the forefront of this year’s election long ago. Call it “characters count.”

Bill Steigerwald | October 06, 2008

It's no surprise that someone who named his company FreeMarkets Inc., as founder and CEO Glen Meakem did, is a foe of the gargantuan financial bailout bill that President Bush signed into law Friday.

Marjorie Dannenfelser | October 06, 2008

For me -- a transplanted, self-admitted southern politico -- tomorrow is going to be a banner day. Sarah Palin is speaking in my hometown, Greenville, North Carolina (home of the Fighting ECU Pirates), and Senators McCain and Obama will cap off the day with what I predict will be the pivotal debate of the election.

William Rusher | October 06, 2008

The elections are now less than a month away, and rational observers are pretty well agreed that the Democrats are going to win. The big question is, by how much?

Marvin Olasky | October 06, 2008

Barack Obama claims that he is a new breeze, but he is actually a throwback to Woodrow Wilson both in his policies on many issues and in his manner of thinking and speaking.

Amanda Carpenter | October 06, 2008

If Barack Obama is so outraged at John McCain’s involvement in the Keating Five scandal why is John Glenn, who was one of the five senators accused of corruption, doing surrogate work for Obama?

Rich Galen | October 06, 2008

I was lied to by a person representing himself as an AP reporter.

John McCaslin | October 06, 2008

Burt Prelutsky | October 06, 2008

As you may have guessed, I don’t personally know the Republican candidate for president.

Carol Platt Liebau | October 06, 2008

As the 2008 presidential campaign hurtles into its final days, John McCain confronts a choice: He can either start telling the public about the real Barack Obama, or he can lose.

Rebecca Hagelin | October 06, 2008

If you’re a parent, you know there’s one thing you’ll never lack -- advice.

Dinesh D'Souza | October 06, 2008

The presidential contest is not simply an election about who rules America; it is also an election about which set of principles defines American politics.

Star Parker | October 06, 2008

As our financial markets totter, as homes go into foreclosure, as Wall Street executives lose millions, as Americans have more and more difficulty getting loans, can anyone be happy?

Sun, Oct 05, 2008

Salena Zito | October 05, 2008

David Stokes | October 05, 2008

The period between late 1929 and the beginning of the 1940s is, of course, known as the Great Depression. But in a real sense, it could be called the Great Depressions.

Jackie Gingrich Cushman | October 05, 2008

Growing up, my sister and I always knew we were going to college, the only question was where. I have passed this same educational expectation to my children.

Debra J. Saunders | October 05, 2008

As reform measures go, Proposition 11 -- the redistricting reform measure -- is hardly a transformational law likely to supercharge activists (of any political stripe) eager to make Sacramento more effective and more accountable to the public.

George Will | October 05, 2008

John McCain, like many Americans who should know better, extravagantly praises Theodore Roosevelt. He is a kindred spirit of the impulsive Rough Rider.

Ken Connor | October 05, 2008

At long last, the chickens have come home to roost. And what a mess they're making.

Austin Hill | October 05, 2008

This just in: American media outlets are suffering a breakdown in the free-flow of accurate information.

Paul Jacob | October 05, 2008

American voters, betrayed again and again by their representatives and elected officials, still have recourse to the ballot box to effect change.
