TH Daily - January 25 - Thomas Sowell, Byron York, Chuck Norris, David Limbaugh, Dennis Prager and More

Townhall Daily Newsletter Print  Forward
Columnists Blog News Cartoons Videos
New Heroes vs. Old
Thomas Sowell:

Many of the people we honor today are people who are skilled in the rhetoric of grievances and promises of new "rights" at someone else's expense. But is that what is going to make a better America? ... more

House GOP Begins Long Drive to Dismantle Obamacare
Byron York:

Everyone knows House Republicans (along with three Democrats) voted on Jan. 19 to repeal Obamacare. But fewer people know what those same House Republicans -- this time, with more than a dozen Democrats -- did on Jan. 20. ... more

Obama Orders Study on Socialism
Chuck Norris:

Under the radar this past week was President Barack Obama's executive order for a review of government regulations in hope of showing that bigger government isn't bad news for economic growth and business. ... more

Obama Moving to the Center? Wanna Buy a Bridge?
David Limbaugh:

For those who argue that Obama deserves a second chance at proving he's not at war with American business and the free market, I ask what he has done to indicate he's changed his philosophy that drives that war. ... more

The One Thing You Won't See on TV at the State of the Union
Dennis Prager:

Tuesday, when you see President Obama give his State of the Union address, you will see four things: the president entering the hall, the president ascending the rostrum to be greeted by the vice president and the speaker of the House, the president giving his speech and the reactions of members of the Congress and others in the hall. ... more

The Spending Cuts Challenge
Cal Thomas:

By now those holiday bills have arrived. Those who have charged too much have cut back on spending until the bills are paid. Some have gone on the spending wagon, cutting their plastic into tiny pieces. ... more

And the Debt Bomb Ticks On
Pat Buchanan:

With his approval rating moving up to 50 percent and higher in some polls, the pundits are all agreed. President Obama has turned the corner. He is now the winter-book favorite in 2012. ... more

Environmentalists: Hands Off My Dishes!
Mona Charen:

I began noticing the white coating, dull film, and simply unclean dishes a few weeks ago. Naturally, I suspected that other members of my clan were failing to place dishes on the racks of the dishwasher properly. ... more

The Contest of Credibility
Michael Gerson:

The largest challenge President Obama faces is job-creation. But the largest issue over which the president and Congress have actual control is the deficit. So the first clear comparison between Obama and newly empowered Republicans will be a contest of credibility on the budget. ... more

7 Non-Political Differences Between Liberals and Conservatives
John Hawkins:

People who don't follow politics tend to believe that conservatives and liberals are just flip sides of the same coin. In other words, conservatives are pro-life, pro-gun, and fiscally conservative while liberals are pro-choice, anti-gun, and want to tax and spend, but otherwise, there are no real differences. ... more

Beware of Centrists Bearing Gifts
Bill Murchison:

Where is this "center" nearly everyone in America wants to stand on, at least by the accounting of the commentators and political pros striving to figure out the next two years? ... more

Economic Growth: You're Making It Too Hard, Mr. President
Rob Schwarzwalder:

Recently, President Obama appointed GE chairman Jeffrey Immelt to chair the President's Council on Jobs and Competitiveness. ... more

It's Taxpayers Who Are Really Under Assault
Brett McMahon:

This week, the New York Times covered the increasingly alarming story of how states are buried under the debts of public employee pensions. For decades, these taxpayer-provided pensions have grown without restraint, and eventually someone is going to have to pay. ... more

Government Electric
Tim Carney:

Barack Obama rose to office promising to take on the "special interests." But there may be no "special interest" quite as special and quite as well connected as General Electric. ... more

Will Obama's Justice Department Probe Child Porn at MTV?
Ken Klukowski:

The child porn allegations made against MTV for its "Skins" show must be investigated by the Obama Justice Department. ... more

Is Obama Flouting Traditional Bipartisan Traditions?
Elisabeth Meinecke:

As the process of approving judges begins again in the new Senate, the Obama administration may have missed a chance for bipartisan outreach at the process' outset. ... more

For (and Against) the Filibuster
Paul Greenberg:

Any discussion of whether to end, mend, or generally fiddle with the filibuster might well begin by trying to understand what it is, and why such a practice developed in the U.S. Senate. ... more

Will Obama's Justice Department Probe Child Porn at MTV?
Ken Klukowski:

The child porn allegations made against MTV for its "Skins" show must be investigated by the Obama Justice Department. ... more

Necessary State Budget Cuts Can Be a Boon to Education
Romina Boccia:

Most states have substantial shortfalls projected not just this year, but into the future, unless governors and legislators make fundamental changes to the budget. Public education, as the single largest category of all state and local government expenditures, has to be on the table for reductions. ... more

Remembering Roe: A Forgotten Warning from Ronald Reagan
Paul Kengor:

Given the somber anniversary of Roe v. Wade—source of 40 million abortions since 1973—I thought I'd share an excellent but forgotten speech by President Ronald Reagan. ... more

Obama and the 'Constitutional' House of Horrors
Janet M. LaRue:

January 22nd was the 38th anniversary of the mother of all absurd Supreme Court rulings, Roe. v. Wade. Unsurprisingly, America's most pro-abortion President even chose to celebrate Roe in a public statement while ignoring the atrocities uncovered in a Philadelphia abortion clinic a few days earlier. ... more

It's Not Legal
Mario Diaz:

Abortion is not legal. It can never be. No matter what the Supreme Court has said, the fact is that the right to life is inalienable. ... more

Altered States... of the Union
Rich Galen:

The President is scheduled to deliver the State of the Union address in the chamber of the U.S. House of Representatives at 9 o'clock tomorrow night. ... more
