ALAN KEYES Mitt Romney jumped the gun with his statement about Obama's reaction to the heinous assassination of U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens.

WES VERNON, RA ANALYST "This is my last election. After my election I'll have more flexibility."

JOSEPH FARAH I want you to try to imagine that any political commentator-activist other than Karl Rove had "joked" about murdering a sitting U.S. member of the House of Representatives and a candidate for the U.S. Senate.

PATRICK GARRY, RA ANALYST Our electronic media culture supports an ever-shortening attention span. It focuses all attention on the immediate, the here and now. The past seems to disappear as quickly as a plate of cookies in the employee lounge... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES President Obama's dithering on the world stage makes Americans vulnerable everywhere. When crazed Islamic radicals can get away with murdering and possibly raping a U.S. ambassador, none of our citizens are safe on any spot of the globe. When a president is too weak to defend his people, they become targets. This invites bad actors to go after us... (more)

CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER There are two positions one can take regarding the Iranian nuclear program: (a) it doesn't matter, we can deter them, or (b) it does matter, we must stop them. In my view, the first position -- that we can contain Iran as we did the Soviet Union -- is totally wrong, a product of wishful thinking and misread history... (more)

JOSEPH FARAH California Gov. Jerry Brown is almost certain to sign into law a bill passed by the legislature that will make it illegal for young homosexuals who want to become heterosexual from choosing psychotherapy.

WES VERNON, RA ANALYST America's loose "honor system" in voting is no longer viable, assuming it ever was. For decades we joked about the cemetery precincts in Chicago and elsewhere, and how statewide elections in Illinois were basically a battle between the elder Mayor Daley, a Democrat, and the downstate Republicans as to who could do the best job of fictionalizing the vote count. But they were seen as anomalies... (more)
