ED FEULNER Imagine you could buy a car at only one dealership. Shop for clothes at only one outlet. Buy food at only one grocery store. What kind of service would you expect? Mediocre at best. Which isn't surprising. We all know competition promotes quality. When you can shop wherever you please, merchants know the only way to woo your business is to offer a superior product... (more)

PAT BUCHANAN Now that Benghazi has been spared what we were assured would be a massacre by Moammar Gadhafi's army, why are the U.S. Air Force, Navy, CIA and Special Forces still attacking in Libya? If our objective was to spare the defenseless people of Benghazi from slaughter, why, mission accomplished, did we not stop bombing?... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES A House panel voted Thursday to limit tax breaks for insurance policies that cover abortions as House Republicans try to chip away at President Obama's health overhaul. The House Ways and Means Committee voted 22-14 on a party-line vote to pass the bill, which would prevent people from deducting the cost of an abortion from their taxable income... (more)

POLITICO It's not like Republicans need a reminder of the tensions within their own ranks on government spending cuts. But if they forget what's at stake, all GOP lawmakers need to do Thursday is walk outside the Capitol, where perhaps hundreds of tea party protesters will be urging congressional leaders to hold their ground on major spending cuts...

NEWSMAX Illinois Rep. Joe Walsh says a federal government shutdown might actually not be so bad, as it could be the jolt Congress needs to stop stalling and do what the American people really want -- significant movement in resolving the nation's budgetary crisis. Walsh, a tea party-backed Republican, also admonished President Barack Obama, saying he "should be ashamed of himself" for not participating in budget talks... (more)

DICK MORRIS With each of his policies, Obama takes a gamble. If they work, he's OK. If they don't, he's on the hook for the outcome. Consider the extent of his exposure: His involvement in Libya makes him responsible if Gaddafi stays in power and slaughters his own people and/or renews his connections with international terrorism...

REP. MIKE PENCE On Feb. 18, 2011, with bipartisan support, the House of Representatives passed the Pence Amendment, which would end taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood. In response, Planned Parenthood used its vast resources to launch slick Madison Avenue television ads portraying the group -- the nation's largest abortion provider -- as an altruistic organization that provides health-care services to the poor and has only an incidental interest in abortion...

WASHINGTON TIMES If only there were an app for Sen. Charles E. Schumer's smartphone that would tell him when there's a reporter on the line waiting to trap him. The New York Democrat was caught unaware that others were listening during a conference call he held with colleagues... (more)

ASSOCIATED PRESS Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer has signed what is likely the first legislation in the nation to ban abortions over ethnicity. The law makes it a Class 3 felony to knowingly perform or provide financing for an abortion sought because of the race or sex of the fetus or a parent's race. The maximum punishment if convicted is 3 1/2 years in prison... (more)

NEWSMAX Tea party activists in states around the country are making real gains in blocking Obamacare even as the national debate centers on a stalled effort to repeal it in Congress. They're doing it by blocking the law's implementation in state legislatures, according to Politico... (more)

FRANK GAFFNEY How curious. At the very moment that the threat posed to U.S. interests by the toxic Islamist organization known as the Muslim Brotherhood is becoming ever more palpable, a top Senate Democrat seems determined to suppress Americans' understanding of that menace... (more)

NEWSMAX President Barack Obama's approval rating has dropped to a record low of 42 percent, according to a new poll from Quinnipiac University.

NEWSMAX Rep. Paul Broun, R-Ga., dismisses claims the GOP is split between tea party loyalists and its traditional leadership on spending cuts, saying it is the Democrats who are exploiting the nation's budget crisis, because they believe shutting down the government will be politically advantageous...

TERENCE P. JEFFREY President Barack Obama shares at least one thing in common with one of the lesser Founding Fathers. He and Pierce Butler, a South Carolina delegate at the Constitutional Convention, both flip-flopped on their interpretation of the Constitution's war power... (more)

MICHELLE MALKIN Buried in Barack Obama's failed trillion-dollar stimulus program was a $10 million bloody border racket that has now cost American lives. This goes far beyond the usual waste, fraud and abuse underwritten by progressive profligacy... (more)

ANN COULTER "Humanitarian" seems to be the Democrats' new word for "absolutely no national interest." The Democrats were not so interested in a "humanitarian" intervention against a much more brutal dictator in Iraq. But, of course, taking out Saddam Hussein, a state sponsor of terrorism who harbored one of the perpetrators of the 1993 attack on the World Trade Center, would make Americans safer... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES Pro-life laws are part of the reason abortion rates have declined over the past two decades, a study says. A review of abortion data from 1985 through 2005 provides "solid evidence" that laws restricting but not outlawing abortion "have an impact on the childbearing decisions of women"... (more)

NEWSMAX Now here's something Gilligan, the captain, the Howells, Ginger, Mary Ann, and the perfessor could really sink their teeth into -- and it would be more than a three-hour tour that strands them on a deserted island. At the very least, you've got to appreciate the entrepreneurial spirit of the folks at Hawaii Tours for developing the "Find President Obama's Birth Certificate" tour package... (more)

WES VERNON, RA ANALYST What we have here is a part-tutorial on the Constitution, part-legal brief for making Barack Obama a one-term president and (some would argue) a credible case of grounds for impeachment of the president, though that option is not emphasized by the authors... (more)

REUTERS Dale Morris wants to fight back. A 60-year-old West Coast actor and playwright, Morris has, for much of his career, kept quiet about his political views. Morris is a Republican, and he has at times gone to such great lengths to hide that fact that he even pretended to be a Democrat when he ran a theater company... (more)

TED NUGENT The biggest problem President Obama has is a serious lack of trust among the American people. From energy mismanagement to refusal to be fiscally accountable to blatant job-destroying policies, the president has gone off in a gung-ho leftist direction that leaves many Americans shaking their heads in confusion...
