Jonah Goldberg: Obama just repeats the same old script

It's hard to believe that was only President Barack Obama's sixth State of the Union address. It feels like he's given so many more. Maybe that's because the man seems to be constantly talking.

Charles Krauthammer: World rallies, yet Obama says ‘Charlie who?’

Last Sunday, at the great Paris rally, the whole world was Charlie. By Tuesday, the veneer of solidarity was exposed as tissue thin. It began dissolving as soon as the real, remaining Charlie Hebdo put out its post-massacre issue featuring a Muhammad cover that, as The New York Times put it, "reignited the debate pitting free speech against religious sensitivities."

Jonah Goldberg: There's no buzz for Romney nostalgia

In 2007, when President Barack Obama announced that he was running for president, he did it in Springfield, Ill., to highlight his supposed connection to Abraham Lincoln. He brought in his biggest fans to cheer him on.

Kathleen Parker: There are 2 sides to ponder in Obama’s Paris gaffe

If we can be serious for a moment: The president made an error in judgment by not sending someone with a higher profile than our ambassador to join world leaders Sunday at a solidarity rally in Paris. The White House has admitted the error.

Charles Krauthammer: The gas tax of $1 a gallon that pays you back

Jonah Goldberg: French jihadists create bad choices with attack on free expression

The vigils in Paris are moving. The hashtag plumes of #JeSuisCharlie ("I am Charlie") are endearing. The expressions of condemnation from Muslim leaders are commendable, as are the assurances of solidarity and support from Western governments.

Krauthammer: US gives Cuba nylons, gets nothing back

There's an old Cold War joke - pre-pantyhose - that to defeat communism we should empty our B-52 bombers of nuclear weapons and instead drop nylons over the Soviet Union. Flood the Russians with the soft consumer culture of capitalism, seduce them with Western contact and commerce, love bomb them into freedom.

Goldberg: GOP candidates should show, not just tell
