TIMOTHY P. CARNEY Republicans need a new coalition and a new message. The heart of that coalition should be the working class. The message should be populism. Populist movements in the past have often been ugly because they scapegoated vulnerable minorities... (more)

ASSOCIATED PRESS A drop in voter turnout in Tuesday's election didn't keep President Barack Obama from winning a second term. Preliminary figures suggest fewer people voted this year than four years ago, when voters shattered turnout records as they elected Obama to his first term... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Wednesday that he will try to push through a change to Senate rules that would limit the GOP's ability to filibuster bills. Speaking in the wake of Tuesday's election, which boosted Senate Democrats' numbers slightly, Mr. Reid said he won't end filibusters altogether but that the rules need to change so that the minority party cannot use the legislative blocking tool as often...

WASHINGTON TIMES President Obama won re-election to the White House on Tuesday night, holding together enough of his hope-and-change coalition to repeat his historic 2008 election and surviving a sluggish economy and a fractured electorate that desired a change but failed to find Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney a credible alternative...

STEPHEN STONE, RA PRESIDENT In a contested race for political office, it's impossible to vote against someone. The ballot doesn't allow it. That reality has somehow gotten lost in this year's election, due to the intensity of disapproval for Barack Hussein Obama... (more)

ALAN KEYES This week, I read a surprising piece by WND's David Kupelian in which he asserted that people willing to accept the choice of evils in this year's presidential election are following the example of America's founders ("Beware the 'lesser-of-two-evils' trap"). Kupelian notes that in order to secure approval of the U.S. Constitution, the founders compromised with the existence of slavery... (more)

IVAN KENNEALLY Before North Easterners could take adequate stock of the damage left in Hurricane Sandy's wake, the New York Times rushed to use the disaster as a rationale for expanded government: "Disaster coordination is one of the most vital functions of 'big government,'" proclaimed an editorial entitled, "A Big Storm Requires Big Government"...

WASHINGTON TIMES The right to own and profit from private property is under concerted assault from politicians and interest groups seeking new ways to take what you have so they can use it themselves.

ANDREW C. MCCARTHY The bough was thick and wet, and his mouth a tense rictus as he trembled under its weight. But my ten-year-old steadied his hockey-stud legs and carted it off the driveway, then another 30 yards down the street. It landed with a thud in the first space he found along a growing curbside forest... (more)

TIMOTHY P. CARNEY Forecasting elections, with my boss Bob Novak, used to be my full-time job. We did pretty well. In 2002, we correctly called a 51-49 U.S. Senate (we got two races wrong, and they cancelled each other out), and in 2004, we also did very well on House and Senate races, plus we called the Electoral College, I recall, within one state...
