NEWSMAX — Nearly half of voters surveyed this month -- 48 percent -- said President Obama's endorsement of a candidate would make them less likely to vote for that candidate.

JOSEPH FARAH — I guess I'm just an old First Amendment dinosaur -- like my friend Nat Hentoff. I seem to be the only person in the world truly alarmed by a new U.S. Senate bill (not one from the USSR, mind you, but from the U.S. Senate) that would give the president of the United States the authority to shut down the Internet in times of emergency...

PAT BOONE — Sit tight, friend. I've got a startling revelation to make. At least, it will be mighty startling to many. Ever been to Las Vegas? Ever try your hand at blackjack or roulette or -- pardon the expression -- craps? How did you make out? Win a time or two? Good!... (more)

ROBERT M. ENGSTROM — The calls for a boycott of the Grand Canyon State over the passage of a stringent illegal immigration enforcement law may be backfiring on the groups opposed to Arizona's actions.

CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER — Barack Obama doesn't do the mundane. He was sent to us to do larger things. You could see that plainly in his Oval Office address on the Gulf oil spill. He could barely get himself through the pedestrian first half: a bit of BP-bashing, a bit of faux-Clintonian "I feel your pain," a bit of recovery and economic mitigation accounting... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES — The White House kicked off a "recovery summer" public relations blitz yesterday to promote the alleged benefits of stimulus spending.

JEFF JACOBY — President Barack Obama was adamant: His health-care overhaul would not put Americans on the road to British-style, government-run medicine.

MICHELLE MALKIN — Here is the Obama Disaster Management Theory: In times of crisis, you can never have enough unelected, un-vetted political appointees hanging around.

WALTER E. WILLIAMS — George Orwell admonished, "Sometimes the first duty of intelligent men is the restatement of the obvious." That's what I want to do -- talk about the obvious. Suppose that a person is faced with the choice of spending $50,000 on a brand-new car or paying two years worth of college tuition for his 18-year-old... (more)

DICK MORRIS — Jon Leibowitz, chairman of Barack Obama's Federal Trade Commission, is at the epicenter of a quiet movement to subsidize news organizations, a first step toward government control of the media.

KEVIN JACKSON — When slavery is implemented by force, it is certainly a despicable institution. But is it any less despicable when the slaves are there by choice? The interesting point about slavery is that whether it's forced or voluntary, the master is responsible for the slaves. The master feeds, clothes, and cares for his slaves, some masters better than others... (more)

PAT BUCHANAN — Even lifelong Democratic pol Steny Hoyer, majority leader of the U.S. House, is balking at Barack Obama's latest bailout proposal. "I think there is spending fatigue," said Steny. "It's tough in both houses to get votes." Hoyer was referring to Obama's weekend letter to Capitol Hill calling for a $50 billion bailout of state and city governments, to spare our elected politicians the pain of balancing their budgets with their own tax revenues...
