Charles Krauthammer: The Age of Obama: Anno Domini 2 – Heritage Foundation Lecture


In the real world, as opposed to what French President Nicolas Sarkozy calls President Barack Obama’s “virtual world,” America faces the reality of Iran’s intransigence and aggressiveness; China’s headlong pursuit of its own national, regional, and global interests; Russia’s determination to regain its Near Abroad; the Arab states’ refusal to accept any kind of a […]

Andrew C. McCarthy: The Attorney and the General – National Review Online


Michael Hayden, the former CIA director, penned a superb op-ed in the Washington Post on Sunday. Succinctly, he tallies the wages of having Attorney General Eric Holder make national-security decisions. Unlike the attorney general, Hayden is a real general, and very much worth heeding.

Tomorrow marks the anniversary […]

Approaching the Culture & Reuniting Conservatism


Upon reading David Swindle’s response to my disagreement with his observations about conservatism and the culture, it’s clear that the gulf between our views is far smaller than it might have initially seemed:
It’s certainly important for those on the Right to continue to articulate these cultural values. What my statement from my post was intended [...]

Robert Samuelson: A Parody of Leadership – RealClearPolitics


WASHINGTON — Barack Obama’s quest for historic health care legislation has turned into a parody of leadership. We usually associate presidential leadership with the pursuit of goals that, though initially unpopular, serve America’s long-term interests. Obama has reversed this. He’s championing increasingly unpopular legislation that threatens the country’s long-term interests. “This isn’t about me,” he […]
