Ken Blackwell | January 30, 2010

Washington Post columnist Richard Cohen is better than a stopped clock: He’s right more than twice a day. But even as a thoughtful liberal, he bears the burden of knowing many things that are not so.

Dick Morris and Eileen McGann | January 30, 2010

When President Bill Clinton faced Congress in 1995, after first losing any hope of health care reform and then control of Congress, he used his State of the Union speech to declare, "The era of big government is over."

Jon Sanders | January 30, 2010

Americans, understanding that nothing in the climate happens without our causation, are looking Washington, D.C. for how our political leaders will change the weather.

Jackie Gingrich Cushman | January 29, 2010

The start of a new year, a new decade no less, should be marked by a pause in our daily lives.

Kathryn Lopez | January 29, 2010

They called it a "miracle." Maybe it wasn't the Spirit of 1776, but something like it was in the air as Republican Scott Brown was elected to the U.S. Senate seat held by Edward M. Kennedy for six decades.

Katie Gage | January 29, 2010

As Big Labor becomes more and more desperate to force unionization on small businesses, they will say and do anything in an effort to achieve that end. That means using backdoor tactics in the Congress and, if that doesn’t work, going outside the legislative process and forcing unions on employers through administration action in the executive branch.

Rich Tucker | January 29, 2010

What a different speech this could have been. And it’s only luck that allowed President Obama’s first State of the Union (although it’s his third speech to a joint session of Congress) to be as boring as it was.

Rich Galen | January 29, 2010

I told someone last week that there are only two people who know what is going to be in the SOTU: The President, and whoever types the text into the Teleprompter.

Janice Shaw Crouse | January 29, 2010

It doesn’t take a mathematical genius to realize that youths are spending more time with media than in any other of their daily activities. Only three in ten of these youngsters have rules regarding their use of media.

Hugh Hewitt | January 29, 2010

GOP Senate Whip Jon Kyl was a guest on my show Thursday and reported that Congressional Democrats have indeed decided to use reconciliation to resurrect the remains of Obamacare, despite Massachusetts.

Michelle Malkin | January 29, 2010

Imagine this nightmare courtroom scenario: Unhinged Jew-bashing, open mockery of American soldiers, juror intimidation and coldly calculated exploitation of U.S. constitutional protections by a suspected al-Qaida defendant.

Brent Bozell | January 29, 2010

The Super Bowl is a cultural phenomenon. It's not only watched by godzillions of people worldwide, it's the only televised broadcast where the audience tunes in not just for the game, but for the commercials.

Jonah Goldberg | January 29, 2010

For all the talk of how he needed to "pivot" to the center, the Obama we saw was the same Obama who ran for president and the same Obama we've seen over the last year.

David Limbaugh | January 29, 2010

Watching President Barack Obama's State of the Union speech makes me wonder whether the reason he tells so many fibs is that he believes them himself. Either that or he is an even better actor than he is a teleprompter reader.

Mona Charen | January 29, 2010

Obama is a conviction politician. Raised in a left-wing cocoon, he has never given evidence of being anything other than a true-believing left/liberal.

Pat Buchanan | January 29, 2010

resident Obama is in a dilemma from which there appears to be no easy or early escape.

David Harsanyi | January 29, 2010

Of the many tall tales spun by President Barack Obama during the State of the Union address this week, there is one -- and perhaps only one -- that most Americans believe to be true.

Linda Chavez | January 29, 2010

President Obama failed a major test of leadership in his State of the Union address this week. He offered only platitudes and failed policies on job creation and little more on controlling spending.

Howard Rich | January 29, 2010

Barack Obama's Panic Week has come and gone, but did his White House learn anything from the historic repudiation of his leftist agenda?

Charles Krauthammer | January 29, 2010

The real scandal surrounding the failed Christmas Day airline bombing was not the fact that a terrorist got on a plane, but what happened afterward.

Oliver North | January 29, 2010

egardless of station in life, faith or philosophy, unfulfilled expectations are the greatest cause of anger, frustration and discontent on the planet.

Suzanne Fields | January 29, 2010

My pen pal tells me the president's resolve has never been stronger as he fights for health insurance reform and job creation, reining in the big bad banks and squelching the influence of lobbyists.

Thu, Jan 28, 2010

Donald Lambro | January 28, 2010

If President Obama thinks the political disaster that hit his party last month in Massachusetts was bad, he had better brace himself for the Congressional Budget Office's latest economic forecasts for the next two years.

Diana West | January 28, 2010

"The real danger in Iraq is Iran. It controls Iraq with a firm fist." So said Iraqi parliamentarian Ayad Jamal Aldin to Bloomberg.com last month in London.

Debra J. Saunders | January 28, 2010

It all looked so easy in August 2008, when Sen. Barack Obama spoke before the Democratic National Convention in Denver. The Democrats were going to win in November, storm Washington with their reforming ways, and because they were so much smarter than everyone else, they'd know how to get the American economy cooking.

Matt Barber | January 28, 2010

The president recently told Diane Sawyer: “I’d rather be a really good one-term president than a mediocre two-term president.” Excise the self-aggrandizing “really good” twaddle and it would seem ol’ Windy City Barry’s well on his way.

Humberto Fontova | January 28, 2010

In a one hour special titled “Revolutionary Holocaust; Live Free or Die” run on January 22nd Glenn Beck mounted a full-frontal attack against the notion that Lenin, Castro and Che Guevara can be considered kinds of heroes.

Michael Gerson | January 28, 2010

The most revealing congressional reaction following President Obama's State of the Union address came from Sen. Richard Burr of North Carolina: "He sort of took us to the principal's office, didn't he?"

George Will | January 28, 2010

Barack Obama tiptoed Wednesday night along the seam that bifurcates the Democratic Party's brain. He called for a third stimulus (the first was his predecessor's, in February 2008) although the S-word has been banished in favor of "jobs bill."

Floyd and Mary Beth Brown | January 28, 2010

The most annoying part of listening to a speech by the narcissist-in-chief is the number of times he refers to himself.

Janice Shaw Crouse | January 28, 2010

The President promised the moon, but said nothing for which he could be held accountable. He did a brilliant job of giving the impression that he was addressing issues, but in case after case one could only wonder about the particulars.

Andrew Tallman | January 28, 2010

It’s currently in vogue among conservatives to argue that health care reform should not pass because it is unpopular. The argument sounds like this: “Public support for Obama’s plan has dipped to just 36 percent.

Michelle Bernard | January 28, 2010

Elections matter. The 2008 presidential election of Barack Obama was historic. The 2010 Senate election of Scott Brown was less symbolic, but perhaps more substantive.

Cliff May | January 28, 2010

Had the earthquake that hit Haiti shaken Florida instead, the death toll would not have been so tragically high - over 150,000 at last count.

Jillian Bandes | January 28, 2010

President Obama delivered a State of the Union address that was very different than the one he was planning on giving just a few weeks ago.

Jackie Gingrich Cushman | January 28, 2010

"Well, the big difference here and in '94 was you've got me," was President Obama's response to possible problems in the upcoming midterm elections, according to Rep. Marion Berry.

Victor Davis Hanson | January 28, 2010

A year ago Barack Obama inherited a recession brought on by financial panic following the collapse of the housing bubble. The market crash was made worse by Wall Street shenanigans and recklessness at Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae.

Michael Barone | January 28, 2010

Republican Scott Brown's victory in Massachusetts' special Senate election was for Democratic leaders a moment that can be described in two words, of which I will only print the first here, which is "oh."

Larry Elder | January 28, 2010

The Massachusetts "Miracle on Ice" hit Democrats like an avalanche crashing in on a downhill skier. Gone is their 60-vote, filibuster-proof Senate supermajority.

Cal Thomas | January 28, 2010

Democrats blame Republicans for opposing every proposal by the administration. Republicans blame Democrats for not taking seriously any of their ideas.

David Harsanyi | January 28, 2010

Tax credits? Spending freezes? Deficit commissions? The president is starting to sound a lot like one of those fiscal he-devils the Democrats have been warning the nation about for years.

Matt Towery | January 28, 2010

If you want to hear a tale of being beaten up by the Democratic National Party for just delivering an unbiased report, read on. This will tell you more about how Washington works, and about its preconceived biases, than anything you'll come across for a while.

Steve Chapman | January 28, 2010

The story goes that a dog food company brought out a new mix, which sold poorly. The people in charge tried new ads. They tried different packaging. They targeted particular consumers. Nothing worked.

Bill Murchison | January 28, 2010

I got into it recently -- in cordial fashion -- with the editors of an editorial page for which I used to labor.

Emmett Tyrrell | January 28, 2010

Well, you might ask in the aftermath of the Democrats' unseemly frenzy to create a health care reform that restrains expenses and extends health care to those who need or want it, is there an alternative?

George Will | January 28, 2010

Last week's Supreme Court decision that substantially deregulates political speech has provoked an edifying torrent of hyperbole. Critics' dismay reveals their conviction: Speech about the elections that determine the government's composition is not a constitutional right but a mere privilege that exists at the sufferance of government.

Ross Mackenzie | January 28, 2010

Quotations on topics currently in the news....

Mike Adams | January 28, 2010

The University of Northern Colorado (UNCO) has decided it’s time to prohibit "Bias Motivated Incidents."

Maggie Gallagher | January 27, 2010

I can explain why every human culture across millennia has recognized marriage as the union of male and female. These unions are unique. They create life and connect children to their mother and father. When I point this out, typically half the audience gets it. The other half stares blankly.

Ann Coulter | January 27, 2010

If Obama plans to hold Wall Street accountable for its own bad decisions, it will be a first for the Democrats.

Meredith Turney | January 27, 2010

As President Obama delivers his first State of the Union Address this week, it almost feels as though he already has several under his belt. 2009 was a tumultuous year in America; certainly a difficult year for any president to handle, let alone a president with no prior executive experience. It’s hard to believe it was just one year ago that Barack Obama swept into office on the wave of hope and change. What a difference a year makes.

Joel Mowbray | January 27, 2010

In the crucial bellwether state of Ohio, the Democratic governor has created a heavily partisan committee that may be able to tip the scales on the upcoming 2010 census.

Peter Ferrara | January 27, 2010

There is a way to fight back against a runaway Congress. Here's how it works. Over the past year, Congress has seemed to be out of control.

Michael Reagan | January 27, 2010

We spend so much more than we take in because politicians at every level use the public treasury to win elections. The public mostly accepts lavish promises of more and more federal spending because the cost of government has been so effectively divorced from what actually comes out of our paychecks.

Mario Diaz | January 27, 2010

We know President Obama is very gifted when it comes to talking the talk. We also know that it is highly unlikely he will walk the walk. However, the real problem is that, despite this knowledge, you can still find yourself believing what you think you are hearing him say.

Michelle Malkin | January 27, 2010

There are more loopholes in President Obama’s proposed “spending freeze” than in an Olympic volleyball net. Gargantuan government entitlements are exempt. A half-trillion in unspent stimulus money is exempt. Foreign aid is exempt. The Democrats’ proposed $154 billion jobs bill (Stimulus II) is exempt.

John Stossel | January 27, 2010

From the commentary in the mainstream media, I thought there had been a coup d'etat in Washington. The media were upset because the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that forbidding corporations and labor unions to spend money on political speech before elections is unconstitutional.

Walter E. Williams | January 27, 2010

One can understand the absence of concern for diversity in professional sports; they are in it just for the money. But one is left flummoxed by the lack of sports diversity in college sports.

Brent Bozell | January 27, 2010

The declining (or is it dying?) newspaper industry has suffered another blow to its image as punctilious skeptic with the motto "If your mother says she loves you, check it out." It turns out, a pile of American newspapers can't manage to check out the most basic information about people who are flat-out using their pages to push political agendas.

Jonah Goldberg | January 27, 2010

It is always dangerous to mistake your ideological preferences for shrewd political strategy, but that is precisely what President Obama and his advisors have done with the war on terror.

Tony Blankley | January 27, 2010

The best way to revive the 10th Amendment is to repeal the 17th Amendment -- which provides that each state's senators are to be "elected by the people thereof" rather than being "chosen by the Legislature thereof."

Michael Medved | January 27, 2010

Barack Obama’s embarrassing new attempt to channel Harry Truman with his angry populist appeals is doomed to failure for three reasons: wrong guy, wrong Congress and wrong country.

Michael Gerson | January 27, 2010

One of the kinder explanations for President Obama's failed first year is that his agenda was just too darned ambitious.

Dick Morris and Eileen McGann | January 27, 2010

Facing an uphill battle in overhauling the health care industry, will Obama emulate Bill Clinton and save his presidency by moving to the center?

Terry Jeffrey | January 27, 2010

In virtually unnoticed testimony before the Senate Homeland Security Committee last week, National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC) Director Michael Leiter explained that U.S. policy leading up to the attempted Christmas Day suicide attack on Northwest Flight 253 was calculated to draw a line between two types of al-Qaida operatives: Those we allow on planes and those we do not.

Ben Shapiro | January 27, 2010

Obama is addicted to utilizing language that he has carefully tailored or perverted to obfuscate the truth. In other words, he uses double talk on a routine basis.

Austin Bay | January 27, 2010

The Pentagon announced on Jan. 26 that the U.S. military will begin to wind down its central role in Haitian relief efforts within the next three to six months.

Jillian Bandes | January 27, 2010

Being a centrist Democrat in Congress these days is awfully hard. Especially if you’re Blanche Lincoln.

Rich Galen | January 27, 2010

Today's national poll comes to us courtesy of CNN which released its survey Tuesday afternoon.

Jacob Sullum | January 27, 2010

The president's criticism of the Supreme Court's latest decision was long on outrage and short on constitutional interpretation.

Douglas MacKinnon | January 27, 2010

Republican leaders in Congress have selected newly seated Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell to deliver the GOP response to President Barack Obama's State of the Union address this evening. For a host of practical and political reasons, as well as real-world experience and substance, McDonnell seems an excellent choice.

Marybeth Hicks | January 27, 2010

Perhaps most curious of all the results of the recently released Kaiser Family Foundation study “Generation M2: Media in the Lives of 8-18 Year Olds” are the headlines it has generated.

Nathan Tabor | January 27, 2010

With 'Cap and Trade' and other energy legislation unlikely of passing in both houses of the U.S. Congress, the Obama Administration and its supporters are seeking the means to once again bypass the legislative branch. In other words, failing to sign an energy bill, President Barack Obama will give us Cap and Trade by fiat.

Brion McClanahan | January 27, 2010

With the ongoing debate over Obamacare and socialized medicine occupying much of the collective attention of the American public the past few months, Americans have become more familiar and focused on Senate rules and procedures, particularly the possibility of a Senate filibuster to stifle a vote on national healthcare.

Douglas MacKinnon | January 27, 2010

For a host of practical and political reasons, as well as real-world experience and substance, McDonnell seems an excellent choice.

Tue, Jan 26, 2010

Donald Lambro | January 26, 2010

The political health of President Obama and his party can be summed up in one sentence: His legislative agenda is in shreds, his economic policies have failed, and Democratic prospects in the midterm elections are bleak at best.

Nathan Tabor | January 26, 2010

With 'Cap and Trade' and other energy legislation unlikely of passing in both houses of the U.S. Congress, the Obama Administration and its supporters are seeking the means to once again bypass the legislative branch.

Michael McBride | January 26, 2010

The President has a bullet proof majority in the Senate. He has a reasonable majority in the house. He was swept into the White House with all the force of a Pacific tsunami.

Armstrong Williams | January 26, 2010

The dust is still settling from the fallout of the special election in Massachusetts to replace the late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy. The rejection of socialism, high taxes and government restrictions on personal health care choices all became self-evident last week with Scott Brown's stunning upset.

Herb London | January 26, 2010

Denial is a powerful influence in public life. It is obviously a major influence in the Obama administration, which may explain why a Republican party and conservatism which were declared dead institutions and philosophies have risen as a phoenix with life and vitality.

La Shawn Barber | January 26, 2010

One idea that transcends political lines is that blacks are inferior and should be held to lower standards in perpetuity. Earlier this month, Barack Obama's DOJ filed suit against New Jersey and its Civil Service Commission for using an exam that "discriminates" against blacks and Hispanics, because these groups scored "statistically significantly lower" than whites.

Carrie Lukas | January 26, 2010

Americans make many resolutions at the start of a new year. The most common New Year's resolutions are about diet and exercise, but in 2010, many Americans pledged to focus on getting financially fit.

Paul Greenberg | January 26, 2010

These days you don't have to believe anything in particular about race to be called a racist, for it's now used as just a general term of invective. Much as "Fascist!" or "Communist!" used to be all-purpose epithets for separate but equally uncreative types.

Byron York | January 26, 2010

It seems like a simple question. Who made the decision to charge Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the accused terrorist arrested for trying to blow up a Northwest Airlines jet on Christmas Day, as an everyday criminal, as opposed to an enemy combatant?

Bill Murchison | January 26, 2010

It's jobs, jobs, jobs now for the Obama team, rather than health care, health care, health care. You have to call it progress, particularly if you're jobless, or fearful of becoming so at a time when 17 million Americans are either non- or underemployed.

Thomas Sowell | January 26, 2010

The whole political establishment -- both Democrats and Republicans, as well as the mainstream media -- were behind amnesty for illegal immigrants, until the public opinion polls showed that the voters were not buying it. If politicians can't do anything else right, they can count votes.

Chuck Norris | January 26, 2010

Mr. President, it's time to face the music and help America to do the same. This Wednesday evening, you will give your State of the Union speech. And millions upon millions of us are wondering whether you will sugarcoat the truth again -- whether you will pad your performance over this past year or confess that the plans and path Washington is taking are plummeting our country deeper into the abyss.

John Hawkins | January 26, 2010

One of the biggest problems we have in this country is that so few Americans understand how our government works in the real world.

David Limbaugh | January 26, 2010

The more painful exposure we have to Barack Obama -- and we're talking hyper-exposure at this point -- the more we realize how narcissistic he is. Indeed, we are treated to this overexposure precisely because of his narcissistic impulses. He can't keep himself out of the spotlight.

Mona Charen | January 26, 2010

Since the world appears to be self-correcting -- Massachusetts voters have matters in hand, the Supreme Court has come to its senses on the First Amendment, each day brings new revelations that the U.N.'s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report was a fraud, and President Obama acknowledges that his agenda has hit a "buzz saw" -- it's safe to detour into the personal.

Ken Blackwell | January 26, 2010

Dawn Johnsen is President Obama’s nominee to head the U.S. Department of Justice Office of Legal Counsel (OLC). It’s arguably the most important office at DoJ. OLC sets policy for the entire federal government.

Cal Thomas | January 26, 2010

Among the interesting arguments in last week's 5-4 Supreme Court decision granting corporations First Amendment protections when making campaign contributions was the majority's decision to effectively treat corporations as persons.

Dennis Prager | January 26, 2010

On Sunday, The New York Times Magazine featured an article on Charles Johnson, whose website -- littlegreenfootballs -- had for years been very popular among conservatives.

Pat Buchanan | January 26, 2010

"Elections don't matter!" conservatives have long groused. "No matter who you vote for, things never change." Well, we may have an exception here.

Phyllis Schlafly | January 26, 2010

Smarting from their surprise loss in the race to fill the U.S. Senate seat in Massachusetts, the Democrats are throwing their candidate, Martha Coakley, under the bus.

Ed Feulner | January 26, 2010

When future historians characterize this era, chances are they won’t label it as America’s “golden age.” Indeed, they may well mark 2010 as the year the United States became the home of the “mostly free.”

Rebecca Hagelin | January 26, 2010

The latest report on media consumption by pre-teens and teenagers shows that young people ages 8 - 18 spend some 7 hours and 38 minutes per day watching television, surfing the net, playing video games and using other media.

Katie Gage | January 26, 2010

Voters in Massachusetts sent a clear and unambiguous message on behalf of their fellow citizens: Americans want to be heard, they want a voice in their government and they want Washington to stop the overreach into their lives and businesses.

Robert A. Levy | January 26, 2010

As the Massachusetts blame game unfolds, the president’s unpopular health bill leads the list. But the substantive provisions of the bill were just part of the problem. Perhaps more important, voters were appalled by how the deal unfolded.

Debra J. Saunders | January 26, 2010

Political correctness is alive in the Pentagon.

These days you don't have to believe anything in particular about race to be called a racist, for it's now used as just a general term of invective.

W. Thomas Smith, Jr | January 25, 2010

In April 1945 Nazi Germany was on the ropes (Hitler would in fact put a bullet in his brain on April 30), and a half-starved 19-year-old Polish prisoner-of-war, Ryszard Kossobudzki, had escaped his Nazi captors and was making his way — however precariously — toward Allied lines.

Ken Klukowski | January 25, 2010

There is growing tension between the pro-gun parties to the upcoming Supreme Court gun-rights case. Perhaps concerned about the direction this case was going, the Court has taken the unusual step of granting the NRA’s motion to be given separate time to speak during oral arguments.

Paul Greenberg | January 25, 2010

Justice Kennedy wrote the long overdue decision of the U.S. Supreme Court last week letting even corporations and labor unions advertise their political opinions. As if this were a free country.

Rich Galen | January 25, 2010

The Obama White House has been in a frenzy of activity since last Tuesday night when Republican Scott Brown won the special election for U.S. Senate in Massachusetts.

Harry R. Jackson, Jr. | January 25, 2010

The Sunday before Martin Luther King Day, I traveled to Houston to speak at a rally designed to protest the opening of Planned Parenthood’s largest U.S. facility. Over 10,000 gathered at Grace Community Church, led by Dr. Steve Riggle, for an evening praise and prayer rally.

Michael Barone | January 25, 2010

When the New York Times columnist David Brooks first sat down with Barack Obama, they talked a lot about Burke. That's Edmund Burke, the 18th century conservative British politician and philosopher.

Star Parker | January 25, 2010

Have you ever watched as a dear friend becomes smitten with someone you know is not for them?

Mike Adams | January 25, 2010

Help! The People for the American Way are after me! A Marxist professor at my university recently wrote a letter to the far left organization asking for help to stop me from ridiculing her in my nationally published column.

Ken Blackwell | January 25, 2010

Whenever the Establishment in Washington gets a Big Idea about the need to get beyond partisanship, reach for your wallet. The latest Big Idea is President Obama’s proposal for an Executive Commission on Debt Reduction.

Caroline Glick | January 25, 2010

US President Barack Obama is feeling the heat. His response to the current crisis threatening to sink his one-year-old presidency is telling for what it says about the future of both his domestic and foreign policies. Israel should take heed of his responses.

Joseph C. Phillips | January 25, 2010

On Tuesday, Massachusetts voters humbled Democrats by reversing the decision of their state legislators and electing Republican Scott Brown to a U.S. Senate seat that has been held by democrats for all but 6 years since 1926.

Bruce Bialosky | January 25, 2010

Martha Coakley had won a statewide election as Attorney General in 2006 with over 73% of the vote. She had won a competitive primary on the road to what seemed like a cakewalk to the U.S. Senate. Then she suddenly became a “lousy candidate” and was swamped by Scott Brown.

Carol Platt Liebau | January 25, 2010

Fresh off the best week they’ve had in years – literally – conservatives and Republicans would be something less than human if they denied themselves the opportunity to savor an amazing trifecta of victories

J. T. Young | January 25, 2010

It is ingrained in the imaginations of many that a permanent “economic cycle” exists. The economy grows, it over-extends, it decreases, it over-declines, and it grows again.

Frank Gaffney | January 24, 2010

Any day now, President Obama is expected to unveil a new nuclear arms reduction treaty with Russia. This so-called Strategic Arms Reduction (START) follow-on treaty will be ballyhooed as an important step towards the realization of Mr. Obama's goal of a nuclear weapons-free world.

Salena Zito | January 24, 2010

In a political year in which voters want to “throw the bums out,” the last thing any candidate should do is run as the bum.

Austin Hill | January 24, 2010

Breaking news: Barack Obama is not a “messiah,” he is not omniscient, and he is not capable, all on his own, of “fixing everything” that is wrong with America.

Debra J. Saunders | January 24, 2010

Forget the law. Chief U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker has allowed the trial over a challenge to overturn Proposition 8 -- the 2008 California ballot initiative that limited marriage to "a man and a woman" approved by 52 percent of California voters -- to turn into what the measure's opponents like to call a "teachable moment."

Steve Chapman | January 24, 2010

During the 2008 campaign, a group called Citizens United put together a documentary, “Hillary: The Movie.” Remember seeing it on cable TV? No, you don’t, because the organization decided it couldn’t show the film without the risk of felony prosecution. It had every reason to be afraid.

George Will | January 24, 2010

Churchill's wife said that his being turned out of office by British voters in July 1945 -- the war in the Pacific still raged, and he had just returned from the Potsdam conference -- might be a blessing in disguise. He replied: It is very well disguised.

Ken Connor | January 24, 2010

In the aftermath of what analysts are calling the worst natural disaster ever to strike the western hemisphere, the American people have responded with an immense outpouring of generosity and support.
