NEWSMAX The most popular national political figure in America today is one who was rejected by her own party three years ago: Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Nearly two-thirds of Americans hold a favorable view of her and one-third are suffering a form of buyer's remorse, saying the U.S. would be better off now if she had become president in 2008 instead of Barack Obama...

JOSEPH FARAH I don't know about you, but I think it's a pretty big story when the man sitting in the White House flunks the government's own test to determine whether someone can legally work in the U.S. And, in case you missed it, that's just what happened to Barack Obama when his Social Security Number was submitted to the Department of Homeland Security's E-Verify system...

JOAN SWIRSKY, RA ANALYST Over the past almost-three years, I've had to laugh -- in contempt -- when the so-called intelligentsia have shaken their collective heads in bewilderment and seeming incomprehension as they've watched Obama and his essentially Communist regime plunge our nation into: (1) A disastrous economy...

BLOOMBERG NEWS The insurance-buying mandate in President Barack Obama's health-care reform legislation is unconstitutional, a federal judge in Pennsylvania ruled. U.S. District Judge Christopher C. Conner in Harrisburg today said Congress exceeded its powers under the federal constitution when it included in the act Obama signed into law last year a provision requiring almost all Americans to have medical insurance starting in 2014...

THOMAS SOWELL Ninety years ago -- in 1921 -- federal income-tax policies reached an absurdity that many people today seem to want to repeat. Those who believe in high taxes on "the rich" got their way. The tax rate on people in the top income bracket was 73 percent in 1921. On the other hand, the rich also got their way: They didn't actually pay those taxes... (more)

NEWSMAX Tuesday's GOP victory in the heavily Democratic New York City's 9th Congressional District once held by former Rep.

DAVID LIMBAUGH It is very disheartening to see Republican presidential primary candidates racing to out-demagogue one another in denouncing Texas Gov. Rick Perry's accurate description of Social Security as a Ponzi scheme. It used to be that Republicans at least waited until the general election campaign to pander to liberals... (more)

TERENCE P. JEFFREY Mitt Romney may believe Social Security is constitutional, but he would have a hard time convincing some of the people who pushed the Social Security Act into law.

JOHN STOSSEL Ponzi! Ponzi! Ponzi! There, I said it. To the extent people believe there are trust funds with their names on them, Social Security is absolutely a Ponzi scheme. So is Medicare. People need to hear it. Many people think that when the government takes payroll tax from their paychecks, it goes to something like a savings account... (more)

MICHELLE MALKIN With the scandalous bankruptcy of Solyndra (a shady California solar power company that received $535 million in stimulus funds and is now under investigation by the FBI) hanging overhead, President Obama wisely whitewashed any mention of "green jobs" out of his latest address to Congress...

WES VERNON, RA ANALYST Most Americans who pay attention to politics believe Hollywood's political influence in American life and culture is heavily weighted on the left. Steven J. Ross, a historian who teaches at the University of Southern California, begs to differ. He believes the evidence shows that while "the Hollywood left has had the political glitz ... the Hollywood right sought, won and exercised electoral power"... (more)
