What a difference eight years makes. With few exceptions, our national media is confused and depressed about the prospect of President Donald Trump.

Back in 2008 however, the media was downright giddy over the election of Obama. Some journalists even wanted George W. Bush to step aside early so Obama could be...

The rallying around Israel and Netanyahu by politicians on both sides of the...

The New York Times yesterday featured an article on Hillary Clinton’s electoral strategy for 2016. In short, she apparently is mimicking President Barack Obama’s strategy for his second term.

Instead, she is poised to retrace Barack Obama’s far narrower path to the presidency: a campaign focused more on mobilizing supporters in the...

George Bush did not “lie us into war,” no matter how many times the media and Democrats claim it was so.
