Doug Giles | November 15, 2008

Can you imagine what would happen if a gang of angry male Christian activists started shouting down and shoving around some nice old lesbian during a religious rally right after ripping her rainbow pride flag from her hands and waffle stomping it?

Michael Barone | November 15, 2008

Barack Obama has noted, carefully and correctly, that we have only one president at a time. Yet on at least one issue he has taken the lead and nudged the man who will soon be his predecessor in a direction that he might not have taken without prompting.

Nick Nichols | November 15, 2008

In the coming months, I am certain the NeoSocs will be joined by others from both sides of the aisle who, for the sake of political expediency, will turn their backs on the principles of free-market capitalism.

Continuing a pattern established in the 2000 elections, married women supported the conservative, pro-life candidate for President (Senator McCain) while unmarried women supported the liberal, pro-abortion candidate (Senator Obama).

Rich Tucker | November 14, 2008

It’s strange how some expressions just fade away, while others seem to stick around forever.

Kathryn Lopez | November 14, 2008

I suspect that when Time magazine chooses their Person of the Year for 2008, there will be little internal debate. They've probably long picked The One -- Barack Obama.

Rich Galen | November 14, 2008

During the fun-filled days of the House Un-American Activities Committee and Senator Joe McCarthy the standard question was: Are you now, or have you ever been, a member of the Communist Party?

Michelle Malkin | November 14, 2008

Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson finally confirmed what lonely bailout opponents tried to tell the American public all along: The man doesn't know what the hell he's doing.

John Hawkins | November 14, 2008

After a second crushing defeat in a row, it's not surprising that there is a debate in the GOP about whether the party should move to the right or even further towards center.

Jonah Goldberg | November 14, 2008

By now you've probably heard: The GOP is becoming too regional, too white, too old to compete at a national level.

David Limbaugh | November 14, 2008

God bless Sarah Palin, and shame on elitists from both sides of the aisle who have denigrated, demonized and dissed her.

Michael Gerson | November 14, 2008

For Bill Clinton, the errors were almost immediate. By day three of his presidency, Clinton was embroiled in a losing fight to allow open homosexuality in the military.

Suzanne Fields | November 14, 2008

The picture will enter the history books testifying to a new image of race in America.

David Harsanyi | November 14, 2008

The public already has cast a landslide vote on the nation's automotive industry. They hate it.

Linda Chavez | November 14, 2008

Democratic politicians like to see themselves as champions of public education; but when it comes to picking schools for their own children to attend, their support disappears.

Donald Lambro | November 14, 2008

Ronald Reagan's legacy is being kept very much alive here at a time when Republicans have lost their way and are looking for a new voice to lead them out of the political wilderness.

Mike Gallagher | November 14, 2008

I want you to meet a priest from Greenville, South Carolina named Rev. Jay Scott Newman.

Kathleen Parker | November 14, 2008

Fresh ire aimed at former Harvard University President Larry Summers prompts the question: Shouldn't there be a statute of limitations on dumb things expressed in public?

Burt Prelutsky | November 14, 2008

It’s been a while now since the election took place, but it’s still not easy for me to come to grips with it. Strangely enough, I slept okay the night I learned that Barack Obama had defeated John McCain.

Charles Krauthammer | November 14, 2008

Finally, the outlines of a coherent debate on the federal bailout. This comes as welcome relief from a campaign season that gave us the House Republicans' know-nothing rejectionism.

Lisa De Pasquale | November 14, 2008

In The Dukes Davi plays “Danny DePasquale,” a former Doo Wop singer whose time in the spotlight has passed. He is now working in his aunt’s failing restaurant. The Dukes is Davi’s debut as a writer and director.

Oliver North | November 14, 2008

In the rush to establish "adequate regulation and oversight" over financial transactions, too many G-20 leaders are willing to sacrifice national sovereignty and personal privacy.

Floyd and Mary Beth Brown | November 13, 2008

Attacks on Gov. Sarah Palin by McCain campaign staff at first appear to be a case of making her a convenient scapegoat, but the attacks have a more devious motive.

Amanda Carpenter | November 13, 2008

Republican senators are reluctant to take a firm stand to eject their colleague Ted Stevens from the GOP caucus before the outcome of his re-election race is determined.

Larry Elder | November 13, 2008

Ken Blackwell | November 13, 2008

In the aftermath of the 2008 election, the Republican Party has begun going through the litany of reasons that they lost.

Cal Thomas | November 13, 2008

Debra J. Saunders | November 13, 2008

Matt Towery | November 13, 2008

Like the heads of so many businesses, I hope that our new U.S. president can somehow turn around this economic disaster we are facing.

Rachel Marsden | November 13, 2008

Last week, radio king Rush Limbaugh riffed on the idea of “the haughty John Kerry” being appointed Secretary of State in an Obama administration, traveling the globe and stepping in it wherever he went.

Rebecca Hagelin | November 13, 2008

In the wake of last Tuesday’s election, there’s a lot of soul-searching going on among conservatives. Where, many ask, did we go wrong?

Emmett Tyrrell | November 13, 2008

And so after the Nov. 4 presidential election, American conservatives have been thrust into the wilderness again.

George Will | November 13, 2008

Speaking last week by telephone from Kentucky, Mitch McConnell said Republicans should feel "disappointment, not despair."

Wed, Nov 12, 2008

Ann Coulter | November 12, 2008

For the first time in 32 years, Democrats got more than 50 percent of the country to vote for their candidate in a national election, and now they want to lecture the Republican Party on how to win elections.

Karin Agness | November 12, 2008

If Barracuda by Heart is Sarah Palin’s theme song, I’m Still a Guy by Brad Paisley should be Todd Palin’s theme song.

John Boehner | November 12, 2008

I congratulated him on his historic election as our nation’s 44th President, and expressed my sincere hope that Democrats and Republicans will find ways to work together in the years ahead to adopt real solutions to the problems Americans face in their daily lives.

Now that Official Washington needs to take a breath from All-Obama-All-the-Time it has turned its attention to what will become of the Republican Party; or, more precisely who will be the New Face of the Republican Party?

Michelle Malkin | November 12, 2008

I hope Barack Obama remembered to thank George Bush on behalf of his illegal alien aunt this week. The lame-duck Republican president did the Democratic president-elect a generous -- and dangerous -- favor right before Election Day.

John Stossel | November 12, 2008

It's exciting that the world is so excited about Barack Obama. I'm excited, too. That he achieved the presidency says something good about America.

Walter E. Williams | November 12, 2008

Despite the fact that President-elect Barack Obama's vision for our nation leaves a lot to be desired, the fact that he was elected represents a remarkable national achievement.

Jonah Goldberg | November 12, 2008

Bush's brand of conservatism was always a controversial innovation on the right. Recall that in 2000 he promised to be a "different kind of Republican," and he kept his word.

Tony Blankley | November 12, 2008

The voice of the people was uttered Nov. 4. But what did they say, and what will President-elect Obama and the Congress do based on that voice?

Michael Medved | November 12, 2008

Pouring over the numbers in the Presidential and Congressional elections of 2008, there’s an eerie parallel that deserves far more attention than it’s received.

Michael Gerson | November 12, 2008

There is a broad consensus that President-elect Obama's broad victory should be accompanied by broadly appealing policies and broad-minded appointments.

Ben Shapiro | November 12, 2008

We have reached a dangerous point in American politics when parents take their voting cues from 11-year-old children.

Debra J. Saunders | November 12, 2008

Whatever the intention of the anonymous leaker (or leakers) from the McCain campaign who spread nasty rumors about Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, in the end they did not so much trash the image of Caribou Barbie.

Terry Jeffrey | November 12, 2008

Barack and Michelle Obama are poised to commit a classic act of limousine-liberal hypocrisy -- in this case, turning their backs on tens of thousands of inner-city kids in Washington, D.C.

David Harsanyi | November 12, 2008

So the battle for the heart and soul of the Republican Party is on.

Austin Bay | November 12, 2008

Ecstatic Kenyans declared a holiday, waved flags and expressed deserved pride when Barack Obama, the son of a Kenyan, was elected president of the United States. They also killed bulls.

Donald Lambro | November 12, 2008

The U.S. economy is shrinking, unemployment is at its highest level since 1994, manufacturing is at its lowest point in 26 years -- and Barack Obama is pushing a stimulus bill to rebuild bridges and roads.

Bill Murchison | November 12, 2008

Advice for conservatives in the Age of Obama.

Jacob Sullum | November 12, 2008

Carrie Schwab Pomerantz | November 12, 2008

If the current financial news has your head spinning, you're not alone. Every day seems to bring new statistics, for better or worse. One pundit says get out of the market, another says stay the course.

Kathleen Parker | November 12, 2008

Election Day has produced fresh fury from self-proclaimed "conservatives" promising never again to read me or fellow apostates who criticized the Republican ticket.

Jack Kemp | November 12, 2008

My first thought last week upon learning that a 47-year-old African-American Democrat had won the presidency was, "Is this a great country or not?"

Tue, Nov 11, 2008

Brian Fitzpatrick | November 11, 2008

The liberal media worked overtime against California’s marriage amendment, Proposition 8, which the voters passed 52 to 48 percent.

Maggie Gallagher | November 11, 2008

If in 1971 the city of Pleasant Grove, Utah, erected a red granite monument to the Ten Commandments in a public park, does the Constitution of these United States also require them today to grant space for a similar permanent monument to the Seven Aphorisms?

Roger Schlesinger | November 11, 2008

Friday the government released the new Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac maximum loan limits and it simply makes no sense to me. One of the biggest problems facing this economy is the real estate market.

John McCaslin | November 11, 2008

This, I come to realize, is a typical morning at Blackwater Worldwide's 7,000-acre headquarters and training facility in the Great Dismal Swamp of North Carolina. Here on any given day training is provided to 750 people — 35,000 per year.

Dennis Prager | November 11, 2008

I spent a good part of the past year speaking and writing against the election of Barack Obama.

Chuck Norris | November 11, 2008

It's likely no big surprise that I don't see eye to eye with you politically. Actually, I stand in stark opposition to most of your politics.

David Limbaugh | November 11, 2008

The most unnerving aspects about the Democrats' sweeping victory Nov. 4 are their intolerance for dissent and their willingness to censor and otherwise suppress their opponents.

Mona Charen | November 11, 2008

In all the discussion about whether a woman with children should seek an office that would require time away from home, practically no one paid any attention to the fact that Palin's husband, Todd, stood ready and willing to shoulder the lion's share of parenting.

Cal Thomas | November 11, 2008

Remember when Democrats lamented the growing budget deficit and spoke of the burden our children and grandchildren would face if we didn't put our fiscal house in order?

Pat Buchanan | November 11, 2008

Since America ushered China into the World Trade Organization in 2002, Beijing's growth rate has been four times that of the United States, accelerating from an average 10 percent of gross domestic product to 12 percent in 2007.

Phyllis Schlafly | November 11, 2008

Do you wonder why 2008 election data shows that the majority of Catholics voted for Barack Obama even though his record as Illinois state senator proves him the most pro-abortion candidate who ever ran for president?

Mon, Nov 10, 2008

Michelle Bernard | November 10, 2008

Senator Barack Obama will be our next president. He is the man of the hour, the focus of attention in America and around the world. Almost entirely forgotten is Senator John McCain.

William Rusher | November 10, 2008

The first big step of Barack Obama's administration, and quite possibly its defining achievement, will be abandoning America's military involvement in Iraq.

Bill Steigerwald | November 10, 2008

We know you and your cronies from the hard-left side of Chicago are already working on where you'll find the money to pay for that generous to-do list of neo-New Deal stuff you’ve been promising your adoring fans for the last two years.

Marvin Olasky | November 10, 2008

Now is the time for neither political correctness nor conservative pessimism.

Frank Gaffney | November 10, 2008

Senator Barack Obama became President-elect on the uplifting, if inexact, slogan, “Yes, we can.”

Rich Galen | November 10, 2008

The big question among Republicans over the past five days has been "How high will the All-Democrat-All-The-Time-Administration-and-Congress raise our (read my) taxes?"

John McCaslin | November 10, 2008

Vice President Cheney's White House physician, Dr. Lewis A. Hoffman, was seen opening several cases of medical supplies before his weekend speech.

Harry R. Jackson, Jr. | November 10, 2008

Now that the election is over, let’s trust that God will guide, direct, and empower a racially unified Church as His agent of healing!

Debra J. Saunders | November 10, 2008

Before Bush even considers such a request, he ought to take a long look at the thousands of petitions for a presidential pardon filed by inmates who have never served in elective office.

Steve Chapman | November 10, 2008

Obama may discover that the appetite for new policies is smaller than it appears.

Burt Prelutsky | November 10, 2008

Quite recently, it struck me that it’s not that the MSM has done everything in its considerable power to spin, deny or conceal, all the unpleasant truths about ACORN, Rev. Wright, Tony Rezko, Bill Ayers and the Annenberg Challenge, that upsets me the most.

Star Parker | November 10, 2008

John McCain has a knack for the bizarre. But he outdid himself, appearing on Saturday Night Live the weekend before election day to make fun of it all.

Mike Adams | November 10, 2008

A few weeks ago, as I was walking across the campus of UNC-Wilmington, I heard an old familiar sound.

John Andrews | November 10, 2008

Some of our gripe sessions about this year’s Democratic sweep feel like a sales meeting where everyone blames the customer.

Mark Hillman | November 10, 2008

As the dust settles after Election Day, it's fair to say that Republicans deserved the thrashing we received.

Terry Paulson | November 10, 2008

Even in defeat, I'm still proud to be an American! Those who call America "the Great Satan" must now explain how Barack Hussein Obama could become president.

Laura Hollis | November 10, 2008

And now the recriminations begin on the Right.

Sun, Nov 09, 2008

Salena Zito | November 09, 2008

The joke among Republicans when Howard Dean became chairman of the Democratic National Committee was that Howard Dean had become the chairman of the Democratic National Committee.

David Stokes | November 09, 2008

Forty years ago, in the wake of the hard-fought 1968 presidential election, the nation faced what many assumed would be a turbulent transition.

George Will | November 09, 2008

The Capitol Steps, an ensemble that entertains Washington with political satire that often is indistinguishable from the news, begins its current show with a public address announcement advising the audience to note where the auditorium's exits are.

Ken Connor | November 09, 2008

The election of the first African-American President of the United States on Tuesday was a great moment in American history.

Kevin McCullough | November 09, 2008

The people in his campaign have learned it, the people in his soon to be completed cabinet are learning it, and pretty soon the people who voted for him will learn it well:

Austin Hill | November 09, 2008

Conservative Americans in particular need to understand that in this new era, the rules have changed.

Doug Giles | November 09, 2008

Christians, who take the scriptures seriously, are about as happy about an Obama presidency as a pig is a bacon sandwich. Stoked we ain’t.

Paul Jacob | November 09, 2008

The campaigns of both Obama and McCain were run by insiders with a zillion ties to the corrupt status quo. Want change? Look elsewhere.
