On Mike Pence

The New York Times front page profile on my friend, Rep. Mike Pence, ’Star of the Right Loses His Base at the Border,’ is really all about the anti-immigration, far-right group led by Tom Tancredo of Colorado to oppose any broad-based...Show More Summary

Presidents’ Day Musings

Let me begin with Presidents’ Day. It’s a nice long weekend. But it says nothing about the greatness of certain American presidents. Whatever happened to Washington’s Birthday? Or Lincoln’s Birthday? Of course, I could go for Reagan’s Birthday. Show More Summary

After Mitt: A GOP Message of Incentives, Sound Money, and Growth

Mitt Romney showed once again that he is truly a class act. In his announcement that he will not be running for president in 2016, he stated, “I believe that one of our next generation of Republican leaders, one who may not be as well...Show More Summary

Commonsense Economics: Capital = Consumer Spending

It’s too easy to label President Obama’s State of the Union as more tax-the-rich and redistribution. We know that. Rather than name-calling, Republicans must draw a clear line in the sand between their worldview and Obama’s. I’d call...Show More Summary

Jindal’s Brilliant Take on Radical Islam

‘Let’s be honest here. Islam has a problem.” Those are key sentences in an incredibly hard-hitting speech that Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal will give in London on Monday. It is the toughest speech I have read on the whole issue of Islamic radicalism and its destructive, murdering, barbarous ways which are upsetting the entire world. Read my full column here.

Corker’s Folly

What can Senator Bob Corker be thinking? On his first Sunday-news-show appearance of the year, right at the beginning of a new Republican Senate era, does Corker communicate a new GOP message of growth and reform? Does he talk aboutShow More Summary

Optimism for 2015

Politics and the economy are both looking up. President Obama’s big-government spending, planning, and executive-branch overreach were crushed at the polls. Elections matter. The GOP has been rejuvenated. Republican governors will lead the way. Show More Summary

Lower Oil and King Dollar Are Unambiguously Good

We all know that the American energy revolution, led by the new technologies of hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling, has created a flood of new shale-oil and natural-gas production that has overwhelmed world markets and driven prices down by roughly 40 percent. Show More Summary

Lower Oil Prices Are a Free-Market Victory

Seldom has so much good news been portrayed so negatively. Oil prices continue to fall in the U.S. and around the world, but near everyone in the media is grumpy about it. The headlines today are among the silliest I’ve seen: Energy-company...Show More Summary

What about the Brainiacs?

Is this immigration game really worth the candle? I think not. And I say this as someone who is an immigration reformer, not a restrictionist. The free movement of trade, capital, and labor is strongly pro-growth. History shows that legal immigration is good for America, economic growth, entrepreneurship, job creation, and hard-working families. Show More Summary

Marriage Is Pro-Growth

The greatest economic challenge of our time is how to restore economic growth. Over the past dozen years, average real growth has slowed to 1.8 percent annually, under both Republican and Democratic presidents and congresses. It’s a bipartisan problem. And it’s a new one. Show More Summary

Prescription for a Stronger Economy: Marriage

I spoke at the Calvin Coolidge Memorial Foundation dinner last week.  Nationally syndicated columnist Cal Thomas wrote this column about my remarks: At a dinner sponsored by the Calvin Coolidge Memorial Foundation last Thursday (I am an unpaid national advisory board member), there was a debate about wealth redistribution.

For 2016, Hillary Had the Worst Night

We all know the Republican midterm landslide was largely a repudiation of President Obama’s policies and his handling of the job of chief executive. And of course, we don’t know who will succeed him in 2016. But buried deep inside Tuesday’s exit polls is a series of numbers on presidential contenders that will blow your mind. Show More Summary

A Return to the JFK-Reagan Economic Model

Election Day will produce a new Republican Congress, or so the latest polls tell us. If so, the huge losses for the Obama Democrats — both in 2010 and this year — will have come in large measure from the economic failures of a party that has moved radically left over the past 20 years. A Republican victory on Tuesday won’t change this. Show More Summary

The Optimistic GOP Story Everyone Is Missing

The vast majority of political journalists — and I include some of my conservative colleagues — are missing a very big story. The Republicans are going to recapture the Senate, picking up more seats than most any forecaster expects. And the House GOP is going to add to its majority. Show More Summary

Lower Oil Prices Are Unambiguously Good

Steep stock market corrections often create shrouds of pessimism that do bad things to people’s brainpower. And one of the absolutely stupidest things I have heard in recent weeks is that the recent drop in oil prices is bad. You heard me right. Show More Summary

How about a Little Optimism?

Stocks are way overdue for a correction. In a volatile week, the Dow lost 466 points and the S&P 500 dropped 3.1 percent. But even with that, the broad index is up 3.1 percent year to date. So it’s not a disaster. Corrections come and...Show More Summary

None Can Call It Treason

Last week, at the People’s Climate March in New York, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.  accused the Koch brothers of polluting our atmosphere. He said, “Do I think the Koch brothers are treasonous? Yes, I do.” He added, “I think they should be enjoying three hots and a cot at The Hague with all the other war criminals.” Treason?  Read my full column here.
