Compare and contrast two men: former congressmen Jack Kemp, one of the architects of the Reagan Revolution, who passed away last weekend at the age of 73; and Arlen Specter, the Pennsylvania senator who switched parties to stay alive politically for another term.
If you are going to use a cliché, at least use an apt one, please. Discussing the swine flu during his “I’ve been in office 100 days” news conference (really? we hadn’t noticed), President Barack Obama announced he’d been in “day-to-day,” even “hour-to-hour” conversations with health experts.
I'm encouraging all parents and teachers to read Judy Blume's latest writing. And I'm not alone. Cecile Richards, president of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, implores, "Please, let her know how much we appreciate her courage."
While President Barack Obama has, in one sense, tipped his hand by saying that he wants judges with "empathy" for certain groups, he has in a more fundamental sense concealed the real goal -- getting judges who will ratify an ever-expanding scope of the power of the federal government and an ever-declining restraint by the Constitution of the United States.
I’m not of the opinion that a person has to be perfect in order to point out the failings of others, but liberals take it to such an extreme that you have to wonder if they have any self-awareness at all.
President Obama's admirers (for a handy list simply consult the White House Correspondents Association website) go into raptures about his measured, intelligent, even balanced approach to issues. Granted, he is intelligent. But measured and balanced? Hardly.
Left wing media outlets claim that Carrie Prejean’s conservative views on gay marriage are illegitimate because of two semi-nude photos taken of her when she was 17 and because one of her parents accused the other of being gay during their divorce proceedings.
There is a reason why the statue of Justice wears a blindfold. There are things that courts are not supposed to see or recognize when making their decisions-- the race you belong to, whether you are rich or poor, and other personal things that could bias decisions by judges and juries.
It's been decades since I was a student at England's Cambridge University. Since I graduated in 1984, I have returned only a few times to this wonderful country, which I love so dearly and whose people so warmly embraced me.
A random walk through the new administration. . .
News item No. 1 concerns the testimony of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton before the House Foreign Affairs Committee on April 22. She said deteriorating security in nuclear-armed Pakistan "poses a mortal threat to the security and safety of our country and the world."
Last Saturday, Jewish people around the world read Leviticus 19:15 as part of the weekly “Torah Portion” – the specific segment of the Five Books of Moses assigned since ancient times for synagogue recitation on this particular Sabbath of the calendar.
The drop in the stock market has understandably made many investors reluctant to put new money into their accounts -- and some are considering pulling out entirely.
It isn't anything more than a loan, period. Unfortunately, our society tends to make this particular financial instrument many other things that tend to blur its prescribed purpose and gives borrowers a false sense of superiority, comfort and prestige.
Little is as revealing of Barack Obama’s and the Left’s view of America than their use of the words “transform” and “remake” when applied to what they most want to do to America.
If you want to turn the tide in this country, you don't need to wait for some leader to ride up on a white horse so you can take his orders.
A fellow conservative I highly respect told me last week that he doesn't see how Republicans can ever regain the majority without reaching out to moderates, because, he said, only 30 percent of Americans are conservative. Let me try to clear up this growing misconception.
With the recent sad news of the passing of Jack Kemp, Brent Baker of Newsbusters blog remembered the following 1996 quote from Bill Schneider of CNN.
Anytime I hear critics attack Christians for being weak on social justice issues, equality, and human rights, I think of John Wesley and Jack Kemp.
The unions may have a fallback position: Forget about the secret ballot, and try to pass a bill with mandatory federal arbitration. This might be easier to defend. Every American knows what the secret ballot is; few Americans know what mandatory arbitration means.
I am convinced that President Obama’s choice is obvious.
A cursory examination of media coverage concerning the Administration 100 Days reveals a breathtaking pro-Obama bias, which cannot be explained away as a simple case of the mainstream media leading cheers for their favorite liberal.
While Dr. Seuss-like journalists lobbed sophomoric softballs President Obama’s way last Wednesday night, Mr. I-Never-Met-A-Teleprompter-I-Didn’t-Need managed to unintentionally juxtapose two polarizing issues in an ironic and upside down way.
