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.

Jonah Goldberg: Huckabee putting a smile on Bush’s face

Jeb Bush is starting the new year with a smile. Former Arkansas governor and, until last weekend, Fox News host Mike Huckabee announced he would "explore" running for president.

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

For 32 years I've been advocating a major tax on petroleum. I've got as much chance this time around as did Don Quixote with windmills. But I shall tilt my lance once more.

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.

Kathleen Parker: Al Sharpton forever stirring the race pot

Recent events from Ferguson, Mo., to Staten Island, N.Y., might prompt an observer to infer that American cops are racist and that a bigoted white populace tolerates unnecessary lethal force against minorities.

There's an old joke in the newspaper business, now immortal on the Internet:

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.

Parker: A year when the joke was on us

A writer seeking profound pronouncements for a year-end column is likely instead to find herself awash in punch lines.

Goldberg: GOP candidates should show, not just tell

Hey, Jeb, Ted, Rand, Marco, Bobby, Chris and the dozen or more others I'm forgetting, here's something to write on your bathroom mirror in 2015 and beyond: The "P" in POTUS stands for "President," not "Pundit."

Krauthammer: How to fight terrorism’s lone wolves

The lone wolf is the new national nightmare, dramatized and amplified last week by the hostage-taking attack in Sydney, Australia. But there are two kinds of lone wolves - the crazy and the evil - and the distinction is important.

Krauthammer: Real civil war has Dems out to reclaim middle class

Old habits die hard. The media are so enamored of the continuing (and largely contrived) story about the great Republican civil war that they fail to appreciate that the real internecine fight is being waged on the other side of the aisle.

Kathleen Parker: Boomer Kristol calls out his own kind

One can understand why The Weekly Standard's William Kristol would try to nullify Hillary Clinton's presidential candidacy, but smearing all baby boomers in the process seems a stretch of veracity in the service of a blank page.

Charles Krauthammer: Want an Iraq hypothetical? Try this one on

Ramadi falls. The Iraqi army flees. The great 60-nation anti-Islamic State coalition so grandly proclaimed by the Obama administration is nowhere to be seen. Instead, it's the defense minister of Iran who flies into Baghdad, an unsubtle demonstration of who's in charge - while the U.S. air campaign proves futile and America's alleged strategy for combating the Islamic State is in freefall.

Jonah Goldberg: Bush stumbling so far on his ‘joyful’ run

By now everyone has had their say about Jeb Bush's terrible, horrible, no good, very bad week. The consensus is that Bush misheard Megyn Kelly's "knowing what we know now" question about the Iraq war. I'm not convinced.

Ruben Navarrette: Stephanopoulos still linked to Clintons

In 1999, a week after Al Gore claimed that he created the Internet, Bill Clinton appeared at the Gridiron Club's annual dinner. Having recently been stung by a former close adviser who signed a deal with a television network and penned a memoir distancing himself from the 42nd president, Clinton joked that he, too, was an inventor: "I invented George Stephanopoulos."

Charles Krauthammer: Fast track on trade is a win Obama needs

That free trade is advantageous to both sides is the rarest of political propositions - provable, indeed mathematically. David Ricardo did so in 1817. The Law of Comparative Advantage has held up nicely for 198 years.

Jonah Goldberg: Identity politics is always tied to one's views

Imagine it's 2007 and a prominent journalist is interviewing then-Sen. Barack Obama. "Senator, people are really interested in you and your identity. I just wanted to ask you as a historical matter, when you filled out your application to Columbia, to Harvard Law School, did you list yourself as an African-American?"

It is nearly axiomatic that presidential contests tend to shine a harsh light on conservative Christians, inasmuch as they are viewed as the Republican Party's base and are, therefore, deemed fair game.
