WEEKEND INTERVIEW:: The Paradoxes of Felipe Calderón – WSJ

By BRET STEPHENS -- New York Felipe Calderón arrives 15 minutes early for his meeting with the editors of The Wall Street Journal, as if he wants to put to rest the old stereotype about his countrymen living on "Mexican time." It isn't the only stereotype the Mexican president means to bury as he wraps up his six consequential (and term-limited) years in office. ... Go To Article

MARK STEYN:: Obama a better president of the future – The OC Register

By MARK STEYN -- One of the reasons why Barack Obama is regarded as the greatest orator of our age is that he's always banging on about some other age yet to come – e.g., the Future! A future of whose contours he is remarkably certain and boundlessly confident: The future will belong to nations that invest in education because the children are our future, but the ...

JONAH GOLDBERG:: The Tribe of Liberty – NRO

By Jonah Goldberg -- We like tribalism for the same reason we like fatty foods: We evolved that way. Homo sapiens didn’t survive long on the African savannas as rugged individualists. Alone, they couldn’t scare away the scarier animals, and, for the most part, they couldn’t catch and kill the tastier ones. But in groups, humans rose to the top of the food ... Go To Article

REVIEW & OUTLOOK: Handmaid to the Plutocrats – WSJ

'People feel like the system is rigged against them. And here's the painful part: They're right. The system is rigged," declared Elizabeth Warren in prime time at the Democratic convention—and she should know. By her own logic, she was one of the riggers. One pleasure of the Massachusetts Senate race is that we are all learning about the remunerative outside legal ... Go To Article

STEVEN HAYWARD:: Bailing Out Obamacare: Sarah Palin Was Right | Power Line

I missed this piece from Steven Rattner (who was a key figure in the Obama auto bailout) when it appeared in the NY Times a couple weeks ago.  Tacitly acknowledging that costs are going to soar out of sight, Rattner opens with this frank admission: “We need death panels.”  Jonah Goldberg wonders: When can Sarah Palin expect her letter of apology?” Rattner goes ...

GEORGE WILL: Debate questions for the presidential candidates – WaPo

By George F. Will, Friday, September 28 -- The spectacles we persist in dignifying as presidential “debates” — two-minute regurgitations of rehearsed responses — often subtract from the nation’s understanding.

PETE DU PONT: The Election Isn’t Over – WSJ

By PETE DU PONT, Sept. 27, 2012 Things are changing in America, from economics to politics, to elections. The public sees a supposed economic recovery that seems quite short on job creation, as employment and underemployment remain high.

PATRICK CADDELL: Romney Must Go on Offense on Media, Middle East

by PATRICK CADDELL -- Mitt Romney is not going to win the White House if he doesn’t speak in plain terms about the true nature of this election campaign. That is, if Romney doesn’t stand up and point out the obvious--that he’s not going one on one with Barack Obama, but rather one on two, with Obama being helped by the Main Stream Media--then he has no chance ...
