Mere days after winning the presidency on the strength of his proposed “middle class tax cuts,” U.S. President Barack Obama switched gears and began outlining his vision for a massive “economic stimulus” – one that he promised would create three million jobs.
When words like “huge” or “massive” don’t seem big enough to describe the scale of the conservative victories of the midterm election of 2010, the pundits reach for words like “tsunami” and “hurricane.”
Bjorn Lomborg, author of The Skeptical Environmentalist and Cool It, is right about the need to focus on critical health and economic priorities. But he is wrong about human carbon dioxide emissions causing what is now being called “global climate disruption.”
Many newer video games depict graphic violence, such as torturing and defiling women and children. These games are sold to kids. The Supreme Court is considering whether the First Amendment forbids states from restricting the sale of these games to minors.
Our country was founded on a revolutionary concept -- a new kind of government both empowered and controlled by its citizens. This idea, the very foundation of our great experiment in democracy, was betrayed with enactment of the new healthcare act. Every poll showed that a majority of Americans rejected this legislation and yet Congress ran right over the majority will of the American people and enacted it into law.
States that have hemorrhaged jobs and opportunities over the past many years of misrule by Democratic governors and Democratic majorities have to take quick and decisive action on three fronts.
Marco Rubio. Nikki Haley. Tim Scott. Amidst nonstop accusations of racial prejudice from the MSM, Republicans elected a diverse cast of conservatives in key races last night, which should put to rest the canard that opposition to Obama-Pelosi Dems is fueled by race.
In the wake of sweeping Republican gains in yesterday’s elections, the biggest question facing President Obama is whether to act like Clinton did when faced with changing political realities.
New congressional leaders will demand Obama exhibit the resolve of a committed commander in chief.
In 2008, the American voter decisively elected as president a man that the widely respected, non-partisan National Journal had named the “most liberal member of the Senate” in 2007, to the left of even Barbara Boxer, Ted Kennedy, and Hillary Clinton.
A number of Illinois GOP operatives have expressed concerns about an eleventh-hour development in the Senate race: A $1 million cash infusion from the DNC into the state late on Saturday.
If you ask the Left, they'll give you every excuse in the book for why they're going to get their brains beaten out today. The economy is bad, Obama cooperates too much with the Republicans, the American people are irrational, it's Bush's fault -- it goes on and on.
For newly empowered congressional Republicans, priority one must be an extension of the Bush tax cuts. There should be enough votes not only from a new Republican majority, but also from some of the decimated and dispirited (and even newly elected) Democrats. If President Obama is smart, he won't veto the bill.
There is an American tradition of voting not for the party, but "for the man." Unlike Europeans, who are more ideologically driven, Americans have prided themselves in assessing individuals of both parties, and then voting for the more personally impressive candidate.
When the liberals and the feminists, including Hillary Clinton, began saying the "village" should raise the child, most people recognized village as a metaphor for government.
There are two stories in this election: the President and the Tea Party. That a third party could so quickly emerge and share the political storyline with the President is indeed news. However, this is hardly the first time a third party has had an impact on American politics. What makes the Tea Party novel is that it is fundamentally different from any of the third parties of the last 100 years.
From jumping up and down making loud, simultaneous noises to listening to the familiar strains of “Love Train” and the wit of Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, Saturday’s “Rally to Restore Sanity” merits comparison to the Land of Oz.

In Ohio’s 18th Congressional District, the race is quickly heating up between Pelosi Puppet Zack Space and Republican Bob Gibbs.
The story changed. After attempting to convince us for the past nine months that Democrats were merely taking a breath, playing rope-a-dope, biding their time, and just gathering themselves for the final push in which they would really surprise us, we are now being told that Republicans are not going to do as well as they should have done.
Millions of Americans still wonder why our current President remains so utterly clueless on economic policy. There is certainly a good argument that his leftist agenda, illustrated by his tiresome class-warfare blather and his continuing scorn for our most productive – and most job-creating – citizens, is the crux of the problem.
Republican Bill Johnson has an uphill battle in the Buckeye State. But if he can pull it off, Republicans everywhere can rest easy on Election Day.
Stanley Kurtz’s new book, “Radical-in-Chief: Barack Obama and the Untold Story of American Socialism,” is a detailed look into the forces that shaped Barack Obama.
Although many think of Florida as a state of beaches and amusement parks, the area around the state’s capitol is a unique combination of lowland history and Dixie tradition.
As the nation prepares to mark the second anniversary of Barack Obama’s election to the presidency with widespread repudiation of his hope and change agenda, theories abound as to what has caused the wheels to fall off what was once a formidable political juggernaut. Here’s my take—Mr. Obama, unlike most of the previous residents at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, decided to skip his first term and govern like a second term president.
