RICH LOWRY The best defense of Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney's instantly notorious "47 percent" remarks at a May fundraiser is that he made a bad point badly. Romney mixed up three separate groups: the roughly half the country that will inevitably support President Barack Obama, the half that doesn't pay federal income taxes, and the half that receives government benefits...

NEWSMAX Powerful conservative Sen. Jim DeMint says he is mulling cash aid for the beleaguered Senate campaign of Missouri GOP Rep. Todd Akin. DeMint's Senate Conservatives Fund has allocated millions of dollars to conservative Senate candidates this election cycle, including Richard Mourdock in Indiana, Rep. Jeff Flake in Arizona, Ted Cruz in Texas ($2.1 million), and Josh Mandel in Ohio ($957,000), The Hill reports... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES Wisconsin GOP Gov. Scott Walker thinks the campaign of party nominee Mitt Romney has been too passive in responding to attacks from the Obama campaign, and that it is failing to showcase the strengths of Romney running mate and Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan... (more)

THOMAS SOWELL The recently discovered tape on which Barack Obama said back in 1998 that he believes in redistribution is not really news. He said the same thing to Joe the Plumber four years ago. But the surfacing of this tape may serve a useful purpose if it gets people to thinking about what the consequences of redistribution are... (more)

WORLDNETDAILY His father taught him to love jazz? So claims an email dispatched this week from the Obama campaign soliciting a donation for a chance to have "Dinner with Barack," with airfare "on us." But the claim is not credible, contends Joel Gilbert, whose documentary "Dreams from My Real Father" has just been released... (more)

WORLDNETDAILY A Florida Democrat who went to court to determine whether Barack Obama is qualified for the office of president is asking the First District Court of Appeal there to order legal "discovery" in the case, a process in which each side examines evidence held by the other... (more)

ROBERT KNIGHT I was driving into Washington the other day when a radio clip of Hillary Rodham Clinton got my attention. The secretary of state was emoting hotly, using terms such as "disgusting" and "reprehensible." At first, I thought Bill Clinton might have released a candid memoir, but I soon realized that the former first lady was talking about the crude 14-minute "Innocence of Muslims" video that liberals blamed solely for the deadly attacks on U.S. embassies and riots across the Muslim world...

MONTE KULIGOWSKI In the classic movie, It's a Wonderful Life, the angel Clarence tells George Bailey: "You've been given a great gift, George." Well, Mitt Romney has been given a wonderful gift from the Obama campaign. It is truly a wonder that Obama would have the audacity to make the production of documents a 2012 campaign issue...

September 20, 2012
ALAN KEYES The Romney campaign has chosen to deploy a strategy that depends on drawing a contrast between Romney's proven competence and Obama's disappointing incompetence (while being careful always to obscure the fact that Romney's competence came in the role of socialist administrator during the Massachusetts phase of his career)...

FRED HUTCHISON, RA ANALYST In September 2004, Discover Magazine had a special Einstein issue. Fifty-eight pages of glossy magazine space was devoted to Einstein! Einstein seems to be growing as an American cult hero. He is not only a dominating figure in the sciences, but he has a profound influence on the culture. His theory of relativity sends the message that all things are relative in the cosmos, with the strong implication that the realms of morality, truth, and culture are relative... (more)

DAILY CALLER A growing chorus of conservatives is telling Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney that he must immediately make changes to his campaign or he will lose... (more)

TIMOTHY P. CARNEY By tagging 47 percent of America as irresponsible, Obama-supporting government dependents, Romney showed again that his politics are grounded in false liberal premises. Romney's statement at a closed-door fundraiser reflected the mistaken liberal view that the growth of government mostly redistributes wealth downward -- it doesn't... (more)

CLIFF KINCAID The controversy over Missouri Republican Senate candidate Todd Akin's abortion comments was started by a George Soros-funded Democratic Party Super-PAC and the "bait" was taken by Republican Party officials who wanted him out of the race for other reasons, says John Putnam, Missouri state coordinator for the national Tea Party Patriots group...

NEWSMAX The Obama administration's account of the Libyan attacks on the U.S. consulate is "flat-out fantasy," according to the former U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, Andrew McCarthy... (more)

WASHINGTON GUARDIAN The two former Navy SEALs killed in last week's attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi were not part of Ambassador Chris Stevens' official security detail but took up arms in an effort to protect the facility when it was overrun by insurgents, U.S. officials tell the Washington Guardian...

ASSOCIATED PRESS Congressional budget analysts are now estimating that nearly 6 million Americans -- most of them in the middle class -- will have to pay a tax penalty for not getting health insurance once President Barack Obama's health care law is fully in place. That's 2 million more than a previous estimate found, or a 50 percent increase. The average penalty will be nearly $1,200... (more)

WALTER WILLIAMS Many of the nation's colleges and universities have become cesspools of indoctrination, intolerance, academic dishonesty and an "enlightened" form of racism. This is a decades-old trend. In a 1991 speech, Yale President Benno Schmidt warned: "The most serious problems of freedom of expression in our society today exist on our campuses... (more)

PHILIP KLEIN I took a break from politics to observe Rosh Hashanah yesterday, so I'm a bit late to comment on the Mitt Romney fundraiser video posted by Mother Jones that's causing such a stir. But sometimes it's helpful to take a step back from all the instant commentary and try to view things with a broader perspective... (more)

THOMAS SOWELL The first time I saw Chris Christie on television, shortly after he became governor of New Jersey, my immediate reaction was, "My gosh! A talking Republican!" It was almost like seeing a talking giraffe or a talking salamander... (more)

DAILY CALLER Internal Department of Justice emails obtained by The Daily Caller show Attorney General Eric Holder's communications staff has collaborated with the left-wing advocacy group Media Matters for America in an attempt to quell news stories about scandals plaguing Holder and America's top law enforcement agency...

JOHN HAYWARD Until now, the Obama administration has strenuously insisted that the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya was an entirely spontaneous event, as "unexpected" as each new unemployment report... (more)

JOSEPH FARAH I first got interested in prophecy during the 1970s after reading Hal Lindsey's "The Late Great Planet Earth." Within a few years, I got a chance to interview Lindsey for a story I wrote in the Los Angeles Herald Examiner detailing the remarkable success of that book and some of his sequels. It turned out that Lindsey's books on Bible prophecy made him, far and away, the best-selling author of the decade... (more)

STEPHEN STONE, RA PRESIDENT Those who find themselves with seemingly no choice this presidential election do in fact have a choice they might not immediately recognize. It's called doing what God wants. Let's explore this possibility... (more)

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. His mistake provoked a harsh reaction from his fellow travelers in the GOP wing of the elitist faction. I want to discuss the reasons for his embarrassment in a moment; but first, a word about the assault on the United States that provoked his much-maligned criticism of Obama... (more)
