So there is a precedent for a liberal president-messiah, who is less than a messiah and less than a president. ... more

Some politically correct colleges in America and Western Europe observe something they call “Israel Apartheid Week.” It’s another opportunity to libel Israel for building a defensive perimeter to keep out Arab suicide bombers ... more

Austin Hill - Sun Dec 9

Today, just three weeks away from 2013, there is reason to believe that our President and his Administration – and perhaps his party, as a whole – is “embracing” recession, as though it is an appropriate means to a necessary end. ... more

Michael Reagan - Thu Nov 15

Democrats have been blaming George W. Bush for the last four years. Now I think it's time for Republicans to start blaming George W. for the next four years. ... more

Paul Kengor - Tue Nov 13

Mitt Romney lost the presidential race by only two percentage points. If the election had been held just a week earlier, when he was up in the polls, things might have been different. Nonetheless, Mitt Romney lost, and now a bitter debate has ensued over the future of the Republican Party, with liberal Democrats happily plunging into the debate. ... more

Emmett Tyrrell - Thu Nov 8

Jimmy Carter is redeemed! The grinning dunce of yesteryear, who grew into the anile doddering figure of today, lecturing the civilized on all manner of statecraft, has been replaced by the saturnine gaunt prophet, Barack Obama. His sorry performance these past four years he lays to the administration of George W. Bush. The next four years will be a replay of the last four years, and an even graver crisis will confront us then with the domestic economy in a funk and foreign potentates all laughing at us. ... more

We have just observed the fiftieth anniversary of the Cuban Missile Crisis. In that two-week nuclear standoff with the Soviet Union, President Kennedy showed a steely resolve. He was determined not to permit the USSR to move Intermediate Range Ballistic Missiles within ninety miles of our shores. This would derange the whole balance of the East-West conflict, Kennedy believed. What Winston Churchill called “a balance of terror” depended on the forces of freedom not giving in under threat of violence and intimidation from the Kremlin and its Communist cats’ paws throughout the world. ... more

Paul Greenberg - Tue Oct 30

In 1968, it was called the credibility gap. Lyndon Johnson was no longer able to make it seem we were winning the war in Vietnam. Not that he hadn't tried. ... more

Michael Barone - Mon Oct 22

If Barack Obama is defeated, the irresistible comparison will be with Jimmy Carter. ... more

Derek Hunter - Sun Oct 14

It’s like we’re in a time warp back to the 1970’s. Not the muscle cars and wild times of Studio 54, just the bad parts – turmoil in the Middle East, high unemployment, food and gas prices through the roof and an occupant of the White House with no clue how to deal with any of it. ... more

Michael Barone - Mon Oct 8

Wednesday night's presidential debate in which Mitt Romney shellacked Barack Obama attracted the biggest audience since the debate between Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan seven days before the 1980 election. ... more

Tim Phillips - Fri Sep 28

With millions of Americans out of work, unemployment is marching ever higher. Gasoline prices soar, painfully hitting family budgets with every fill-up. As fall approaches, an incumbent President holds a narrow lead, intent on gaining a second term. The key to victory is a relatively small group of undecided voters; a conflicted electorate who respect the President, but recognize his policies have failed to lift the economy out of a recession. ... more

Victor Davis Hanson - Thu Sep 27

There was only one presidential debate in 1980 between challenger Ronald Reagan and President Jimmy Carter. Just two days before the Oct. 28 debate, Carter was eight points ahead in the Gallup poll. A week after the debate, he lost to Reagan by nearly ten percentage points. ... more

Jeff Jacoby - Sun Sep 23

One of the more piquant details in the tale of Mitt Romney's damning "47 percent" video is that it was unearthed online by James Earl Carter IV, a grandson and namesake of the 39th president. The self-described "oppo researcher [and] political junkie" told NBC News that he tracked down the person who recorded Romney's remarks at a May fundraiser, then put him in touch with Mother Jones, the left-wing magazine that publicized the video last Monday. Carter's "research assistance" was credited in a terse endnote, but the reaction from his grandfather was more effusive: "James," the former president emailed, "This is extraordinary. Congratulations! Papa." ... more

Bob Beauprez - Thu Sep 20

Having listened to Obama's speech, Rush realized that significant portions of the speech sounded familiar. And, with a bit of research, Rush was able to demonstrate that Obama's speech sounded familiar because, at times, Obama was channeling former President Jimmy Carter's 1980 speech at the Democratic National Convention so closely that, well, someone should call the Plagiarism Police! ... more

Bob Barr - Wed Sep 19

Despite repeated, self-serving claims by Obama officials that the Administration did everything it could to head off and then respond appropriately to the violence against American facilities in Libya and Egypt last week, their blunders in policy, intelligence and security illustrates an incompetence every bit as profound as exhibited by the administration of Jimmy Carter in Iran 33 years ago. It appears nothing has been learned in more than three decades; despite significant gains in technology available to the U.S. government during those intervening years. ... more

Paul Kengor - Fri Sep 14

In the last 24 hours, beginning with the 11th anniversary of 9/11, all hell has broken loose in the Middle East. Our diplomatic missions in Egypt and Libya have been attacked, with the U.S. ambassador to Libya among those brutally murdered by Islamists. ... more

Victor Davis Hanson - Thu Sep 13

The theme of the president's 2012 re-election campaign is that George W. Bush left such a terrible mess that Barack Obama could hardly be expected to clean it up in four years. ... more
