The world doesn't stand still. Case in point: the Georgia runoff election last week made necessary because Republican Sen. Saxby Chambliss failed, barely, to win an absolute majority on Nov. 4.

Ken Blackwell | December 06, 2008

Wayne Winegarden | December 06, 2008

Perhaps the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) movement of the late 1990’s and early 2000’s was simply a fad – an expendable corporate distraction that companies entertain during fat times.

Kathleen Parker | December 06, 2008

Despite its sudden popularity, oogedy-boogedy is nonetheless causing some consternation and confusion. What does it mean and whence does it come? In the Dec. 15 issue of National Review, Ramesh Ponnuru writes that he doesn't know what oogedy-boogedy means, "but I gather it's bad."

Janice Shaw Crouse | December 06, 2008

Kathryn Lopez | December 05, 2008

As it happens, I'm in the mood to defend the Bush who's about to leave office. But that's for a future column. Right now, my attention is on the Bush who has been out of office for a few years.

Rich Tucker | December 05, 2008

Great art may be in the eye of the beholder, but it isn’t necessarily in our museums.

Bob Burney | December 05, 2008

In the entire history of our country, I'm not sure there has ever been a presidential honeymoon period as tender and loving as the one that Barack Obama is experiencing today.

Michelle Malkin | December 05, 2008

Did you know that Sarah Palin-haters are still trying to prove she didn't give birth to her youngest son, Trig? These tinfoil hat-wearers are as obnoxious and unhinged as the 9/11 Truth cultists who insist that America engineered the jihadi attacks on itself.

Brent Bozell | December 05, 2008

Hollywood can still mount a soapbox and recall the dark days when people lost their jobs in show business for daring to take an unpopular political position that was outside the mainstream.

Jonah Goldberg | December 05, 2008

These are humbling times for champions of the free market and American-style capitalism. The CEOs of the Big Three car companies are kneeling before Uncle Sam like Henry in the snows of Canossa.

David Limbaugh | December 05, 2008

The cult mystique of Barack Obama continues while his fawning supporters blindly accept every move he makes, proving their support for him in the general election was not based as much on policy as personality.

Mona Charen | December 05, 2008

I can see it now. The world will be very different. The president of the United States will receive the Nobel Peace Prize for his lifesaving aid to victims of disease in Africa.

The attacks have come like the steady rhythm of a clock -- 188 dead in Mumbai. Tick. Fifty-two dead in the London bombings. Tock. One-hundred-ninety-one dead in the Madrid train attacks.

Suzanne Fields | December 05, 2008

Barack Obama has been accused of hubris and arrogance for his continuing references of identification with Abraham Lincoln, who by the measure of many was the greatest of all our presidents.

David Harsanyi | December 05, 2008

If rumor-mongering, poor taste, gratuitous jerkiness and adolescent skulduggery on the Internet are now considered federal crimes, well, you can imagine, there won't be much of an Internet left.

Linda Chavez | December 05, 2008

Mario Diaz | December 04, 2008

It turns out the “tolerance” movement might not be as tolerant as advertised.

Interesting thing happened this week. Somebody in the mainstream media (MSM) actually asked President-elect Barack Obama a good question.

Roger Schlesinger | December 04, 2008

Cliff May | December 04, 2008

The attack in India was not the test of Barack Obama's mettle that Joseph Biden has predicted. But it was a test. The terrorists were communicating who they are and what they want.

John McCaslin | December 04, 2008

As 2008 draws to a close, it's time once again for the American Speaker's (now in its 17th year) annual Patrick Henry Awards for the best - and worst - public speakers of the year.

In America, we consider a family of four "poor" if its annual income falls below $21,203.

During the Great Depression and World War II, truly challenging times, there were songs that boosted the spirits of our parents, grandparents and great-grandparents.

Dick Morris and Eileen McGann | December 04, 2008

Obama's selection of Hillary is by no means the act of a president tapping his favorite to hold the top portfolio in his administration.

Debra J. Saunders | December 04, 2008

While Democrats may play the blame game with Bush about Iraq, Obama understands that if Iraq collapses after U.S. troops are withdrawn, then it won't matter who started the war. America loses, and he loses.

Matt Towery | December 04, 2008

With so many newspapers columns about bailouts and debt, I thought I might just change the pace by paying tribute to a woman to whom we as Americans are indebted -- First Lady Laura Bush.

Paul Greenberg | December 04, 2008

Looking over Barack Obama's first appointees to his Cabinet, I get this weird premonition: I could yet wind up leading the cheers for the Obama administration.

To the extent that his ambition is clear, it is notably modest.

Joel Mowbray | December 04, 2008

The most underreported story of the election is that conservative voters provided the margin of victory for Barack Obama—a finding that has dramatic implications for both Democrats and Republicans.

Ira Mehlman | December 03, 2008

Michael Medved | December 03, 2008

The savage terror attacks in Mumbai send three powerful messages to all Americans who are willing to pay attention.

Michelle Malkin | December 03, 2008

It was supposed to be a joke. As an endless parade of corporate beggars marches to Washington in search of handouts for their beleaguered industries, some of us in the news business snarked that journalists would be next in line.

John Stossel | December 03, 2008

If an athlete injures himself and suffers great pain, we'd recognize the shortsightedness of giving him painkillers to keep him going. The pain might be masked, but at the risk of greater injury later.

Jonah Goldberg | December 03, 2008

Did you catch the political ad in which two Jews ring the doorbell of a nice working-class family? They barge in and rifle through the wife's purse and then the man's wallet for any cash.

Tony Blankley | December 03, 2008

From The Huffington Post and Daily Kos to National Review and The Washington Times -- and all the mainstream media in between -- commentators are puzzling over who the dickens President-elect Barack Obama really is.

Cal Thomas | December 03, 2008

Looking at the faces of two young men who were among the purveyors of death at Mumbai, India's Taj Mahal and Oberoi hotels, Chhattrapati Shivaji Terminus station and Leopold's restaurant, makes Westerners recoil, and not just in horror.

Michael Gerson | December 03, 2008

It is a lineup generous in its moderation, astonishing for its continuity, startling for its stability.

Ben Shapiro | December 03, 2008

Jihadists allied with LET trained in the suburbs of our capital city.

Austin Bay | December 03, 2008

The Islamist terrorist attack on Mumbai sets the stage for another major war between India and Pakistan.

Paul Greenberg | December 03, 2008

The effect of the fog of war on a commander is well known. It separates him from events on the battlefield. Communication is lost or garbled, confusion reigns, and misunderstanding leads to catastrophe.

Donald Lambro | December 03, 2008

President-elect Barack Obama had to sign a lot of prenuptial agreements before he was able to put together the national-security team he announced this week.

John McCaslin | December 02, 2008

Thomas Sowell | December 02, 2008

Most people on the left are not opposed to freedom. They are just in favor of all sorts of things that are incompatible with freedom.

Chuck Norris | December 02, 2008

Have you noticed lately that mainstream media are giving less attention to the war in Iraq, especially concerning our troops' progress?

David Limbaugh | December 02, 2008

I am far less convinced than many that Barack Obama will be a centrist in office. Despite his announced future Cabinet appointees, I find it amazing that people are so willing to believe he'll change his stripes that fast.

Mona Charen | December 02, 2008

Superstition almost forbids me to comment on President-elect Obama's appointments thus far.

For two or three years running, it seems, all we've heard from the political left in the United States, concerning the war on terror, is: Aren't we awful?

Douglas MacKinnon | December 02, 2008

More than two months into the "worst economic crisis of our lifetimes," and here is the prevailing—and increasingly angry—complaint I'm hearing from real people.

Star Parker | December 01, 2008

Now that Democrats have won the White House and have widened their margin of control in Congress, does this signify that American voters have moved to the left?

Kevin McCullough | November 30, 2008

Paul Jacob | November 30, 2008

Power tempts. Power corrupts. And power is the politician's biz. Follow the logic and you see why term limits are necessary, and why they are more popular than any single politician.

Austin Hill | November 30, 2008

Some of our fellow Americans have been victimized in a most horrific way. Think of it as “manipulated consumer syndrome.”
