FRANK GAFFNEY Barack Obama faces not one but two perfect storms. He actually may be grateful for the meteorological one if it predictably helps obscure the political one at least for the next week. Hurricane Sandy is, of course, a disaster no one would welcome. Untold numbers of Americans are having their lives endangered, or at least severely disrupted, and the potential economic harm is unimaginable at this point... (more)

ALAN KEYES When the GOP nominated John McCain in 2008, it was the first time the GOP wing of the elitist faction set the stage for a presidential election that was plainly a choice of evils from a conservative point of view. I refused to go along with the so-called conservatives who agreed to overlook McCain's leftward makeover in just about every policy area except national security... (more)

JOSEPH FARAH No longer is Barack Obama dissing people who cling to their Bibles.

EMILY MILLER There's no stopping Democrats out for political blood. Richard Mourdock, the Indiana Republican locked in a close contest with Democrat Joe Donnelly for a U.S. Senate seat, offered a badly phrased comment about abortion in rape cases during a debate Tuesday. He quickly apologized for any misunderstanding, but the Obama campaign is seizing the issue as a way to get at Mitt Romney... (more)

ERIC GIUNTA Bernie DeCastro is an ex-convict running for sheriff of Marion County on an obscure third-party ticket; and he might win.

ALAN KEYES AIDS is one of the deadly diseases of our time because it attacks the body's immune system, making it prey to opportunistic infections. So the AIDS virus, itself, may not appear to be the immediate cause of death. But because it reduces the body's capacity to fight the infections that will be, once active it makes death a veritable certainty... (more)

NEW YORK TIMES When the histories of the 2012 campaign are written, much will be made of Bill Clinton's re-emergence. His convention speech may well have marked the finest moment of President Obama's re-election campaign, and his ads on the president's behalf were memorable... (more)
