David Limbaugh | February 11, 2011

>While The New York Times is gloating over "turmoil" in the GOP House "ranks," internal disagreements over spending and other issues are a healthy development and should lead to more disciplined and aggressive action.

Mona Charen | February 11, 2011

Companies are quietly redesigning their products to accommodate the needs of (shh, don't say it aloud) aging baby boomers.

Cal Thomas | February 11, 2011

One of liberalism's many problems is that once an idea or program is proved wrong and unworkable, liberals rarely acknowledge their mistake and examine the root cause of their error so they don't repeat it.

Pat Buchanan | February 11, 2011

George W. Bush must have been the despair of the history department of every school his daddy managed to get him into.

Suzanne Fields | February 11, 2011

Democracy is more than a word. The protesting Egyptians and the watching world are learning that between the Egyptian army and the Muslim Brotherhood stand a lot to overcome.

Michael Gerson | February 11, 2011

For those who are prone to be prone to such things, recent events in Egypt are further evidence of declining American global influence.

Terry Jeffrey | February 11, 2011

When Ronald Reagan delivered his farewell address more than two decades ago, he cited one regret: a continuing deficit he had put the nation on track to eliminate.

Linda Chavez | February 11, 2011

House Democrats have been taunting Republicans to come up with concrete budget cuts ever since the GOP rode to victory last November on a platform of reducing spending.

Matt Towery | February 11, 2011

Liberals and Democrats go nuts whenever any columnist dares to suggest that John F.

Along with scores of conservative Republicans, right-of-center values won the 2010 midterm elections, as the principles of limited government, reduced spending and public-sector accountability earned the frustrated public’s support.

Alex Cortes | February 11, 2011

The number of Republican Members of Congress who appeared on my radio show between their “thumpin’” in 2006 and their return to power in 2010 who admitted with apparent remorse that “We lost our way” is easily in double digits.

Victor Davis Hanson | February 10, 2011

California Gov. Jerry Brown must rapidly close a $25 billion budgetary shortfall. But right now it seems almost a hopeless task since the state's disastrous budget is a symptom, not the cause, of California's much larger nightmare.

Michael Barone | February 10, 2011

What was the takeaway from last weekend's Super Bowl experience? It's time to get back to the basics.

Debra J. Saunders | February 10, 2011

Time Magazine just listed Che Guevara among the world’s top 25 political icons. Che ranks number 9, between Adolph Hitler (8) and Ronald Reagan (10.) Mao Tse Tung ranks 3rd, Genghis Khan 5th, and Mohandas Gandhi 1st.

Sandy Rios | February 10, 2011

With the constant invocation of “what would Reagan do,” the amnesia about what he actually did do and say about conservatism is amazing.

The other night while watching the Super Bowl, I became increasingly aware that the Angry Left might have a point about the Giant Corporations.

Steve Chapman | February 10, 2011

Helen Whalen Cohen | February 10, 2011

Based on what I've heard from the mainstream media, I'm pretty sure the conservative movement is now being led either by Jared Loughner or GOProud's president, Chris Barron.

Jeff Jacoby | February 09, 2011

Rich Galen | February 09, 2011

Here's what's likely to happen in Egypt: It will evolve into a Turkish-like government with the civil side adopting a pro-Islamic stance, while the military makes certain the place doesn't turn into Afghanistan under the Taliban.

At Philadelphia's 30th Street Station on Tuesday, lifelong government rail promoter Vice President Joe Biden unveiled a $53 billion high-speed train initiative and half-joked: "I'm like the ombudsman for Amtrak." As with most gaffetastic Biden-isms, the remark should prompt more heartburn than hilarity.

John Stossel | February 09, 2011

At last month's State of the Union, President Obama said America needs more passenger trains. How does he know?

Walter E. Williams | February 09, 2011

Sam Kazman's "Drug Approvals and Deadly Delays" article in the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons (Winter 2010), tells a story about how the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's policies have led to the deaths of tens of thousands of Americans. Let's look at how it happens.

Brent Bozell | February 09, 2011

Those censorious liberals who truly hate the very existence of the Fox News Channel denounce it for being a political organization, not truly a news network. Behind that line is decades of liberals being able to strangle, smother and spike news stories they didn't like.

Last Sunday, the media were reporting that the Muslim Brotherhood was sitting down with Egyptian Vice President Omar Suleiman, in a completely unrelated story, the BBC reported that British Prime Minster David Cameron announced that "State multiculturalism has failed": "David Cameron has criticized 'state multiculturalism' in his first speech as prime minister on radicalization and the causes of terrorism.

Michael Medved | February 09, 2011

With America's chief Arab ally teetering on the brink of chaos and collapse, with unemployment stubbornly stuck above 9 percent, will President Barack Obama persist in his feeble efforts to rally the nation with expensive programs for solar panels and high-speed rail?

Ben Shapiro | February 09, 2011

Obsessed with Egypt coverage and the Super Bowl, the media has ignored David Cameron's speech completely.

Debra J. Saunders | February 09, 2011

Kyle Olson | February 09, 2011

Even though the condition of the Oakland Unified School District is so bad that the state of California had to take it over, don’t expect the Oakland Education Association to be bothered with such trivialities.

Ed Feulner | February 09, 2011

One of the few things that critics and friends of Israel can agree on is that Israel is different, a special sort of nation representing a special idea.

Ken Connor | February 08, 2011

One of the hallmarks of contemporary Liberalism is an embrace of multiculturalism. A truly progressive society, so the thinking goes, is one in which people from all walks of life – all racial, ethnic, religious, and cultural backgrounds – can coexist harmoniously, even though they have radically different world views and conflicting notions about how to order themselves in society.

Rebecca Hagelin | February 08, 2011

Chuck Norris | February 08, 2011

Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Google services all have been disrupted by Egyptian governing authorities in pursuit of clamping down on protests. And we don't think the U.S. government would do the same?

David Limbaugh | February 08, 2011

Republicans look strong each time President Obama assaults the treasury or the democratic process, but people seem more willing to forgive his infractions than they are with other politicians.

Mona Charen | February 08, 2011

As Egypt staggers toward an uncertain future, a familiar complaint is making the opinion rounds in the United States -- namely that Egypt's current predicament is at least in part traceable to the supposed American fondness for propping up corrupt dictators around the globe.

Cal Thomas | February 08, 2011

Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke seemed to be channeling Chicken Little when he warned congressional Republicans that any delay in raising the debt ceiling beyond the current $14.3 trillion cap could have "catastrophic" consequences.

As the threats against Israel mount from all directions, the job of the IDF Chief of General Staff is becoming more challenging by the day.

Pat Buchanan | February 08, 2011

Paul Greenberg | February 08, 2011

Their faces are a mirror of hope, pride, exhilaration ... in short, youth! Direct from Liberation Square in Cairo, they crowd our television screens here in the West, perfectly articulate in a language not their native tongue.

Phyllis Schlafly | February 08, 2011

The liberals have unjustly blamed Sarah Palin for many things, but there's one thing for which she is probably responsible: making feminism the hot topic that it has become today.

Kyle Olson | February 08, 2011

Somewhere back in our school days, we all had a special teacher who made learning fun or who pushed us into achieving more than we thought possible. If you were lucky, you had several teachers like that.

Robert Knight | February 08, 2011

Years ago, when I was a Media Fellow at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University, I got to sit down with Martin Anderson, one of Ronald Reagan’s closest advisers.

Marvin Olasky | February 08, 2011

The first video to go viral this year (see YouTube) starred Ted Williams, not the hitter but "the man with the golden voice," a 53-year-old homeless guy who has spent the past two decades doing drugs and committing crimes.

Craig Shirley | February 08, 2011

Being here in Simi Valley this weekend at the Reagan Library, looking at all the displays, all the history, all the memorabilia, all the testimonies and all the thousands of people who travel off the beaten path to journey to this, his last resting place, it suddenly dawned on me. There is no one Reagan legacy.

Mon, Feb 07, 2011

Paul Kengor | February 07, 2011

This February marks the birth centennial of Ronald Reagan. As a Reagan biographer, I’m often asked how Reagan was different from his predecessors, Republican and Democrat, and especially in the area of foreign policy.

Lee Habeeb | February 07, 2011

Repeal and replace. Those were the two words that captured the imagination of Americans who opposed the lumbering leviathan known as ObamaCare. We turned out by the millions at the polls to help make those two words a reality.

Romina Boccia | February 07, 2011

Centuries ago, revolutionaries exchanged secret letters and waited for messages carried on horseback to provide news of how comrades fared on other fronts. Today, the world is captivated by the news, images, and video on global events, which are shared over the Internet by people all over the world instantly.

J. T. Young | February 07, 2011

The difference between shareholders and citizens is the reason business reforms and government doesn’t. The difference explains why a virtuous cycle of savings prevails in the former and a vicious cycle of spending prevails in the latter.

Michael Barone | February 07, 2011

Bruce Bialosky | February 07, 2011

Hollywood often makes heroes out of undeserving people in order to further their unenlightened agenda. Ten years ago, it was “Erin Brockovich” that received Tinseltown’s royal treatment.

It's only February and we already have a strong contender for the most substantively offensive quote of 2011.

Carol Platt Liebau | February 07, 2011

Big Labor is reaping the rewards for having poured a billion dollars into the Democrats' coffers during the 2008 elections – and spending millions more last November.

Frank Gaffney | February 07, 2011

Like ordinary folks, presidents of the United States are known by the company they keep. It is a test of their character. Often it shapes their policies. In the case of Barack Obama, it may blight his legacy and our nation’s security interests.

Kyle Olson | February 07, 2011

Former American Federation of Teachers President Albert Shanker made teachers' unions what they are today. He was hard-nosed defender of teachers' rights, but he also came clean about public school performance.
