President Eisenhower said the following in response to recommendations that we dramatically increase government spending after the "Sputnik" launch: "You can't win a war by bankrupting yourself."

"Government takeover," like "death panel," is a true description of ObamaCare's essence. These phrases are "inaccurate" only in that they cut through formal distinctions designed to deceive the public. (We wish we could use a barnyard vulgarity in place of the unwieldy clause "formal distinctions designed to deceive the public," but The Wall Street Journal is a family newspaper.)

In the meantime, I haven't seen grass since Thanksgiving and there's a foot and a half of global warming on my deck. Of course this isn't unusual...it's winter in the Great Lakes, and some of us wouldn't mind a little "global warming". But that will undoubtedly occur in a couple months, as it always does.

This represents Palin’s lowest approval to date, but is quite likely nowhere near as low as she’ll wind up if elected president, the pollster concluded.

Victor Davis Hanson | Obama’s 1979: Obama’s deer-in-the-headlights, finger-to-the-wind, “I can’t believe this is happening to me” initial reaction to the Mubarak implosion has eerie precedents. After the debacle in Vietnam, Watergate, the Nixon resignation, and the Ford WIN buttons, voters were willing to bet on the smiling but unknown hope-and-change reformer from Plains, Georgia. […]

Naftali Bendavid | Senate to Vote on Health-Law Repeal WASHINGTON—Senate Republicans, seizing on a court ruling that the health-care overhaul passed last year is unconstitutional, will push ahead with a vote to repeal the legislation. The Senate effort, expected Wednesday, is almost certain to fail, likely ensuring that the push by Congress to undo the […]

Peter Ferrara: The Legal Future of Obamacare: As of this moment Obamacare is officially not the law of the land. As Federal Judge Roger Vinson ruled on Monday in Florida, "[T]here is a long standing presumption that officials of the Executive Branch will adhere to the law as declared by the court. As a result, […]

Andy Barr | The Huntsman File Oppo researchers aren’t going to have to dig that deep for their first hit on Jon Huntsman. There is, of course, his work for Obama and his public statements in support of the president. But even prior to his 2009 appointment as ambassador to China – when his name […]

[Thirty] years and four presidents later, Americans still see themselves in Reagan. In a Gallup poll in 2009 they ranked Reagan as the best president, just ahead of Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy.

I have said a multitude of times that what Governor Palin stands for is of benefit to all Americans, but absolutely essential for the Black community. If America is in jeopardy because of the policies of this current administration--and it is--the Black community is at an even greater risk.

Governor Palin has always been best as the under dog. She isn't expecting to be handed the presidency on a golden platter. She's a fighter and wants to fight for it and she wants to earn it and will.

By standing up to vilification, and refusing to be cowed into silence, Governor Palin gives us all a voice.

No one is in the position to make accurate assumptions about the campaign strategy Governor Palin or any other potential 2012 presidential candidate may employ. However, often in politics, the past can indicate how a candidate may act in the present and in future. If Governor Palin's previous political campaigns are any indication, she excels at retail politics.

Mortimer B. Zuckerman | What Today’s Leaders Can Learn From Reagan The celebration of the 100th anniversary of the birth of President Ronald Reagan brings to mind my first revealing encounter with him.

Orange County Register | Obamacare Unconstitutional A federal judge Monday struck a major blow against Obamacare, ruling it to be unconstitutional. The ruling is welcome by those of us who believe Congress and President Barack Obama exceeded their authority last year by imposing the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act with its mandate that everyone […]

John Tamny | The State Of the Union: An Excessive Amount of State In the near week since President Obama’s State of the Union speech, commentators from all sides of the political spectrum have weighed in on the good, bad and innocuous of Obama’s vision for the country’s future.
