Talking Points on Townhall

Terry Paulson - Mon Nov 5

Trust is an invaluable asset for any leader. It's promised in every political campaign. But trust must be earned and reearned every day, and it's hard to regain once lost. President Obama came into office promising hope, change, and unprecedented transparency. ... more

Ed Feulner - Thu Oct 20

It’s about time the rich started paying their fair share, according to the “Occupy Wall Street” protesters. Those fat cats aren’t chipping in as much as the less fortunate. When are they going to start spreading their wealth around? ... more

Paul Greenberg - Thu Oct 13

The line between fact and fiction in politics can be blurry. I'm reminded of that every time I see still another strange quote of Sarah Palin's ("I can see Russia from my house!") that was actually spoken by her talented mimic, Tina Fey. ... more

Paul Kengor - Sun Oct 9

“Steve Jobs has passed away,” I heard a DJ remark. “That’s a shame.” Yes, it is a shame. I was saddened to hear that. I was equally shocked as I turned the dial and heard something even more deadly. It was a comment from actress/comedienne Roseanne Barr, literally calling for the death of certain wealthy Americans. ... more

Niger Innis - Thu Sep 15

I have a few words for Greenpeace as it conducts its latest radical campaign in the Asia-Pacific: not so fast. ... more

Daniel Doherty - Sat Sep 10

Throughout the highly anticipated Republican debate on Wednesday night at the Ronald Reagan Library, Mitt Romney presented himself as a seasoned presidential contender unabashedly ready to defend his imperfect and often controversial record. ... more

Hugh Hewitt - Thu Sep 8

President Obama’s speech on Thursday night bordered on parody. ... more

Floyd and Mary Beth Brown - Thu Sep 8

Brian Williams must crave attention. In the latest Republican debate, instead of moderating, he personally debated all the participants. The actual discussion between candidates was more civil and constructive than the endless string of gotcha speeches foisted as questions on the panel by NBC's Williams and his Politico sidekick, John Harris. ... more

Kathryn Lopez - Fri Aug 26

Just like that, most of America can move on from any concern about the very existence of Dominique Strauss-Kahn. The former head of the International Monetary Fund is a free man, proclaiming his innocence. But what about our innocence? It still seems to be missing. ... more

Ken Connor - Sun Aug 21

In these difficult economic times, both sides of the political aisle are desperate to convince the American people that they are the party with the best plan for pulling America out of recession. ... more

Derek Hunter - Sun Aug 21

Pawlenty is out, Perry is in and Obama is...on vacation. This week was fun, and a mess. But aren’t they all? We learned President Obama is, after 2 1/2 years in office, ready to address his number 1 priority since taking office and release his Nixonian “secret plan” to deal with the jobs crisis...in September. Now THAT’S leadership! How’s that “hope and change” working out for you? ... more

Derek Hunter - Sun Aug 14

I’ve avoided commenting on the Republican candidates to this point, mostly because I suspect a lot people are like me and haven’t found their choice yet, but now that we’ve had a good discussion amongst the candidates... ... more

Jeff Carter - Mon Aug 8

Hold your elected officials feet to the fire. Write letters. There is only one way out of this mess. Cutting spending, and growing the economy. Too much spending and debt got us into this mess, less spending and growth can help get us out of it. ... more

Humberto Fontova - Fri Aug 5

Given the success of Castro’s recruitment of U.S. agents of influence, the line between his propaganda apparatchiks and the blathering from the Democratic/MSM complex has always been blurred to the point of invisibility. ... more

Heidi Harris - Mon Jul 25

I don’t know how Debbie Wasserman Schultz was raised, but I had a younger brother that I was not allowed to hit. Of course I did anyway, on more than one occasion, so I was reprimanded and warned that “one day he’ll be bigger than you”. ... more

Derek Hunter - Sun Jul 24

To say MSNBC is a left-wing propaganda outfit is to say the sun rises in the east. It qualifies as a “duh” statement. But that wasn’t always the case, nor were the embarrassing ratings. ... more

Cal Thomas - Thu Jul 21

"Glee" is not just an American TV show, it is also the emotion many people feel and express toward the trouble Rupert Murdoch's News Corp is having, since they consider Murdoch's properties a blight on their formerly pristine media landscape. ... more

Jonah Goldberg - Wed Jul 13

In 1994, the Republicans took back the House of Representatives for the first time in 40 years. ... more

John Ransom - Sat Jul 2

After gaining the majority on fiscal issues and then losing the majority on fiscal issues, Democrats in Congress can’t afford to concede the field on spending to Republicans but neither can they afford to raise taxes. ... more
