Ryan Lees | September 11, 2010

Barack Obama has a daunting task come January 2011, after the forecasted Republican landslide in the mid-term elections. Whether establishment or Tea Party candidates, a conservative agenda is poised to take control. Obama will face two choices as Republicans mount their attack: to veto or not to veto.

Mike Adams | September 11, 2010

The President of the United States of America is a dishonest man. He is also a poor excuse for a constitutional law scholar.

Dick Morris and Eileen McGann | September 11, 2010

Has the Democratic presidential primary of 2012 started already? Is Hillary Clinton beginning to position herself for a challenge to her boss?

Kathryn Lopez | September 11, 2010

If Carly Simon were a conservative, she might be writing, "You're so vain, you probably think this White House is below you," to accompany the next big tea party rally.

Paul Driessen | September 11, 2010

Billions will still be at risk of getting malaria. Hundreds of millions will continue getting the disease. Millions will die or become permanently brain-damaged.

Mary Grabar | September 11, 2010

I was probably one of the last people in the world to learn about the attack on September 11, 2001.

Larry Kudlow | September 11, 2010

Under pressure from a barrage of bad midterm-election polls, President Obama has gone on the campaign trail to blame Pres. George W. Bush for all our economic problems and to bash House Republican leader John Boehner as nothing more than a Bush retread.

Marvin Olasky | September 11, 2010

Jim Wallis has been the subject of some recent blogosphere humor. Hugh Hewitt wrote, "Most folks who receive donations from billionaires tend not to forget them, so pray for Jim Wallis's memory."

Guy Benson | September 10, 2010

When members of Congress returned to Washington after a turbulent summer recess last year, Americans from across the country decided to join them.

Humberto Fontova | September 10, 2010

Fidel Castro recently bestowed The Atlantic Magazine’s Jeffrey Goldberg with an exclusive interview. More than a mere exclusive, this is the first interview granted by the Stalinist dictator to an American reporter in 4 years. The MSM is absolutely agog with the catalogue of insights, woes and regrets bequeathed by the Cuban mass murderer to Goldberg.

Rich Galen | September 10, 2010

Here's all I'm going to say about Terry Jones and the Dove World Outreach Centre church in Gainesville, Florida: I'm glad he's backed off his threat to burn copies of the Quran.

Hugh Hewitt | September 10, 2010

With a tendentious, sneering speech in Cleveland this week, President Obama launched the fall campaign. The president who never stops campaigning even when he is denouncing the permanent campaign has only one way to actually signal his (dwindling) troops that he is summoning them to a particularly important political battle. When Barack Obama gets serious, he personalizes the attack and he raises the volume.

Michelle Malkin | September 10, 2010

Shhhhhhh, we're told. Don't protest the Ground Zero mosque. Don't burn a Koran.

Guy Benson | September 10, 2010

Young voter trends have fascinated me ever since the Obama-McCain bloodbath of 2008.

Brent Bozell | September 10, 2010

It was some 30 years ago when I first caught a Charlie Daniels concert. He was the backup to the Marshall Tucker Band at the old Capital Centre outside Washington, D.C., and that night, he stole the show.

Jonah Goldberg | September 10, 2010

"Worst president since Hoover." Democrats have said this at one point or another about every Republican president since, well, Herbert Hoover.

David Limbaugh | September 10, 2010

I never expected President Barack Obama to be promoting my new book, "Crimes Against Liberty," but that's virtually what's happened with his recent speeches on the economy.

Mona Charen | September 10, 2010

For once, I'm with Hillary Clinton.

Oliver North | September 10, 2010

WASHINGTON -- According to the "experts," anyone older than 10 will remember traumatic events for the rest of their lives.

Pat Buchanan | September 10, 2010

Is there anyone who has not weighed in on the Saturday night, Sept. 11, bonfire of the Qurans at the Rev. Terry Jones' Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, Fla.?

Suzanne Fields | September 10, 2010

Summer fades into autumn, and with it the seasonal focus on ancient faith.

Matt Towery | September 10, 2010

Amazing. President Barack Obama's Democratic Party keeps plummeting in the generic polls that measure Americans' party preferences.

Diana West | September 10, 2010

When reading stories about that formerly obscure Florida preacher who wants to mark the ninth anniversary of 9/11 by burning a stack of Qurans, bear in mind that the only law he breaks in doing so is Islamic law.

Linda Chavez | September 10, 2010

The president was in full campaign mode this week as he delivered a stump speech on the economy in Cleveland. But the magic is gone.

Donald Lambro | September 10, 2010

WASHINGTON -- President Obama's latest cooked-up economic plan calls for spending more than $50 billion on public works projects, raising taxes on small businesses, and a dubious package of tax credits that even his advisers say will not create new jobs anytime soon.

Floyd and Mary Beth Brown | September 10, 2010

Reverend Terry Jones is the pastor of a small church with big ambition.

Tim Fields | September 09, 2010

This is the message that the Obama administration is pushing with regards to the Bush Tax Cuts, which are set to expire at the end of this year.

Cliff May | September 09, 2010

Nine years ago this week, I began a series of discussions about terrorism with Jack Kemp, Jeane Kirkpatrick and a small group of concerned philanthropists.

J.D. Thorpe | September 09, 2010

As the November 2nd election draws closer, it appears evident that the GOP will score a major victory.

Janice Shaw Crouse | September 09, 2010

This week, the New York Times advised parents of incoming college freshmen to drop their kids off, “back off,” “walk away,” and “move on” so that their “students can develop independence.”

Guy Benson | September 09, 2010

During an especially venomous debate exchange last week, Sen. Barbara Boxer launched a blistering personal attack against her Republican opponent, former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina.

Jackie Gingrich Cushman | September 09, 2010

We all know it happens -- people often get confused. They can become overwhelmed and forget who they are and where they came from, allowing outside forces to dictate their actions.

Victor Davis Hanson | September 09, 2010

The Democrats will probably suffer historic losses in both the House and Senate in less than 60 days.

Michael Barone | September 09, 2010

When you spot the word "triage" in a political news story, you know someone is in trouble.

Larry Elder | September 09, 2010

Americans, says Time magazine, are too dumb to appreciate the wonders of President Barack Obama's $787 billion "stimulus" package.

Ken Blackwell | September 09, 2010

The current liberal majority in Congress assured its members that the 2,000-page health care legislation they were demanding would become more popular with voters after it was passed.

Michael Reagan | September 09, 2010

President Obama is now proposing to spend even more, claiming that this time it will work.

Cal Thomas | September 09, 2010

It is important to understand the plot line in the tragedy called Washington politics before one can appreciate the play, or not.

Caroline Glick | September 09, 2010

For a nation to flourish and succeed over time, its leaders must assert its creed with utter confidence both to their own people and to the world at large.

Dick Morris and Eileen McGann | September 09, 2010

The magnitude of the catastrophe facing the Democratic Party in the fall elections is only gradually becoming clear to the leaders of both parties.

Debra J. Saunders | September 09, 2010

A Florida pastor's plan to burn the Quran on the anniversary of 9/11 is a breathtakingly dumb idea. It's bad for the country.

Jillian Bandes | September 09, 2010

Joe Miller, the GOP’s newly-minted Alaska Senate nominee, has a delicate and arguably astute take on official Republican leadership and campaign arms.

Emmett Tyrrell | September 09, 2010

I like Tony Blair. The left always is lecturing us conservatives on moderation. It would do us good, the left says.

Steve Chapman | September 09, 2010

After nearly 22 years as mayor, Richard M. Daley has definitely worn out much of his appeal to Chicagoans.

Bob Goldman | September 09, 2010

What do you call a person who has a great job and has been there forever? A slacker! That's right.

Ross Mackenzie | September 09, 2010

Steve McQueen, the quirky movie actor, said he'd rather wake up in the middle of nowhere than in any city on the planet. Roger that, bro'.

David Harsanyi | September 09, 2010

You may recall Barack Obama claiming that the original stimulus plan didn't need any more tax cuts or "piecemeal" measures.

Wed, Sep 08, 2010

Michael Gerson | September 08, 2010

Democratic leaders and their supporters approach the November elections with a lumpy mix of messages.

Ann Coulter | September 08, 2010

Gen. Petraeus objected to the Quran-burning protest on the grounds that it could be used by radical jihadists to recruit Muslims to attack Americans. If the general's main objective is to hamper jihadist recruiting, may I respectfully suggest unconditional surrender?

Paul Greenberg | September 08, 2010

Rich Galen | September 08, 2010

Frank Gaffney | September 08, 2010

As a candidate for the U.S. presidency, Barack Obama touted himself to foreign audiences as a "citizen of the world." As President, Mr. Obama is determined to make sure we are such citizens, too.

John Stossel | September 08, 2010

Every day, federal, state and local governments stifle small businesses to privilege well-connected incumbent companies

Walter E. Williams | September 08, 2010

The white liberal's agenda, coupled with that of black race hustlers, has had and continues to have a devastating impact on ordinary black people.

Mona Charen | September 08, 2010

The demographic reality of Europe so scathingly limned in Mark Steyn's "America Alone" cannot be long avoided.

Thomas Sowell | September 08, 2010

When people learn that you are an economist, they often want you to predict which way the economy is going.

Michelle Malkin | September 08, 2010

President Obama calls his latest attempt to revive the economy a "Plan to Renew and Expand America's Roads, Railways and Runways." I'm calling it "The Mother of all Big Dig Boondoggles."

Brent Bozell | September 08, 2010

The midterm elections this fall will feature young people born in 1992 -- in other words, four years after Ronald Reagan left office. What do they know about this man?

Jonah Goldberg | September 08, 2010

No one in the world knows how to make the newspaper you are holding (and, if you're reading this on your phone, computer, iPad or Kindle, no one knows how to make those things either).

Mike Adams | September 08, 2010

In the 1990s, a friend of mine announced that he was divorcing his wife because he had decided (after a couple of unhappy marriages) to pursue the gay lifestyle. My decision to support him was born out of ignorance.

Tony Blankley | September 08, 2010

With the end of combat in Operation Enduring Freedom presidentially certified, all eyes rivet toward Afghanistan. This is the fight President Obama, when campaigning for office, called our "war of necessity."

Michael Medved | September 08, 2010

Established politicians turn to protest campaigns only after they've been disgraced, defeated and rejected by the mainstream.

Terry Jeffrey | September 08, 2010

It is ironic that the most boring contest ever played -- the Princeton-Yale game of 1881 -- helped make American football the world's greatest game.

Ben Shapiro | September 08, 2010

President Obama certainly has it ruff these days. With his approval ratings plummeting and both the House and the Senate trending Republican, he must feel like he's been put in the doghouse.

Austin Bay | September 08, 2010

According to recent public opinion polling data, U.S. President Barack Obama is a highly controversial and divisive political figure -- public opinion polling data from Iraq, that is.

Ed Feulner | September 08, 2010

We at The Heritage Foundation recently published “Solutions for America.” It identifies the nature and scope of our most pressing problems in 23 policy areas, and recommends 128 specific policy prescriptions.

Jacob Sullum | September 08, 2010

Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal may never have served in Vietnam (despite his recollections to the contrary), but he is a hero in the war on prostitution.

Carrie Schwab Pomerantz | September 08, 2010

To my way of thinking, no area of personal finance is trickier than transactions with family members -- especially siblings -- and your question is a perfect example.

Marybeth Hicks | September 08, 2010

Even before I have the chance to stow my purse and kick off my sandals, my son pops into the room to ask, "What are the new rules?"

Hans A. von Spakovsky | September 08, 2010

No country in Europe, a continent many liberals often cite for its supposedly superior views on everything from government health care to high tax rates, grants automatic citizenship. The trend has been toward eliminating it in the few countries that grant it.

Tue, Sep 07, 2010

Pat Buchanan | September 07, 2010

John McCain is headed back to the U.S. Senate, perhaps a changed and chastened man, and perhaps not.

Donald Lambro | September 07, 2010

President Obama is once again attacking the Republicans as "the party of no" because of the GOP's opposition to his tax-and-spend agenda that this year will add $1.3 trillion to a $13 trillion debt.

Paul Driessen | September 07, 2010

It’s been a rough few weeks for the “eco-progressive” fringe.

Larry Kudlow | September 07, 2010

It’s all midterm-election politics, but Obama’s last-minute idea for 100 percent tax write-offs for corporate investment is, in fact, a good idea.

Phyllis Schlafly | September 07, 2010

Extremely violent and addictive video games are polluting the minds of an entire generation of children, and most parents are clueless.

Armstrong Williams | September 07, 2010

Mission accomplished. Two words. A phrase that haunted one president is now the calling card of success for another.

Thomas Sowell | September 07, 2010

President Barack Obama boldly proclaims, "The buck stops here!" But, whenever his policies are criticized, he acts as if the buck stopped with George W. Bush.

Chuck Norris | September 07, 2010

Who would have believed that within a decade of 9/11, we'd have a president who believes, according to his own 2009 Cairo confession and creed, that it is part of his "responsibility as president of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear"?

John Hawkins | September 07, 2010

Perhaps the biggest problem with the economy right now is that businesses are so afraid of what the government will do that they're stockpiling cash instead of spending it.

Mike Adams | September 07, 2010

There’s nothing more annoying than getting a complaint about my gun collection from a feminist with a tattoo on her lower back.

Dennis Prager | September 07, 2010

The giveaway regarding presidential candidate Barack Obama's plans for America was his repeated use of the words "fundamentally transform."

Rebecca Hagelin | September 07, 2010

e’ve become a culture both welcoming and deadly to people with disabilities.

Bill Murchison | September 07, 2010

It's been a rough year, politically, for the glass-ceiling smashers. Neither feminism nor the civil rights movement, which claimed credit a couple of years back for the golden gifts of Nancy Pelosi and, especially, Barack Obama, cannot have anticipated what their breakthrough moment in 2008 would lead to.

Sarah Walters | September 07, 2010

The well-being of your family shouldn't turn on the political budgeting process. Too bad too-big government often makes this inevitable.

Mon, Sep 06, 2010

Michael Barone | September 06, 2010

Imagine that you have a product whose price tag for decades rises faster than inflation. But people keep buying it because they're told that it will make them wealthier in the long run. Sound familiar?

Star Parker | September 06, 2010

It’s interesting why behavior that we readily recognize, on an individual level, as undesirable, we routinely promote and accept as government and social policy.

Caroline Glick | September 06, 2010

Despite a multi-million dollar media blitz, Israelis are not buying the US-financed Geneva Initiative's attempt to convince us that we have a Palestinian partner.

Lurita Doan | September 06, 2010

President Obama and his team of White House advisors are wrong: no additional federal funding is needed to stimulate a federal construction boom that would launch job-creation in cities across the United States.

Bruce Bialosky | September 06, 2010

The Golden State has not been looking so golden for a while now. California has budget deficits that get bigger ever year, despite imposing among the highest tax rates in the country in every category.

Paul Greenberg | September 06, 2010

On this Labor Day, like most Americans, I come to praise labor, not indulge in it. Has there ever been a people that speechified more about the joys and satisfactions of work and the work ethic, yet was so enamored of labor-saving devices?

Paul Jacob | September 05, 2010

The men and women who make up our ruling elite have been called many names, collectively. Here, they are "the man."

Kevin McCullough | September 05, 2010

The longer President Obama refuses to acknowledge the direction of our nation's economy the greater the impact will be when the looming depression that awaits is named in his honor.

David Stokes | September 05, 2010

While I certainly have no way of knowing just how decisive the repudiation of Obamaism will be during the mid-term elections this November, I believe the message will be unambiguous.

Salena Zito | September 05, 2010

In a campaign office on the first floor of a Sons of Italy lodge, Republican Mike Kelly spoke confidently to a crowd of locals about his race for the U.S. Congress.

Austin Hill | September 05, 2010

How did President Barack Obama go from a sixty-nine percent approval rating in January of 2009, to being declared “Mr. Unpopular” in Time Magazine last week?

Debra J. Saunders | September 05, 2010

At the end of Obamaland's Recovery Summer, Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer is betting that Californians want the federal government to keep growing.

Steve Chapman | September 05, 2010

Tomorrow, many Americans will be enjoying a respite from the incessant demands of their jobs.

James Allen | September 05, 2010

Glenn Beck's Restoring America rally was a pleasant surprise. All great leaders have something in common: their belief in a transcendent being called God.

Ken Connor | September 05, 2010

Four years ago, the Beltway was abuzz with news of a GOP bloodletting – the result of an increasingly unpopular President, an unpopular war, a spate of corruption scandals, and the general feeling that it was time for a change in Washington.
