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

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.

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: 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.

Parker: Ferguson's flames fanned by a media circus

As the curtain closes on the latest episode of "Ferguson," the media series, it is fair to wonder whether events might not have spiraled out of control to the extent they did had the media settled on another topic.

Kathleen Parker: The mourning after, the next discussion

CHARLESTON, S.C. - By all appearances Friday morning, as thousands lined the street waiting (and wilting) for hours in 90-degree heat to enter the funeral arena where President Barack Obama was to deliver a eulogy for state Sen. Clementa Pinckney, racial unity seemed a comfortable fact of life.

Charles Krauthammer: Push to lower flag overdue, albeit rushed

Ruben Navarrette: One Dreamer’s missed lesson in gratitude

Instead of a diploma, one recent college graduate should have received an "Incomplete." She seems to have missed some courses: "Gratitude 101," "Introduction to Civics" and, finally, "Flag Waving and the Importance of Context."

Charles Krauthammer: New strategy is needed for Iraq and Syria

Kathleen Parker: Let’s give a torn city more time to grieve

Unspeakable, unimaginable, incomprehensible and unthinkable are the words we've heard and used to describe the horrific murders of nine African-Americans as they prayed in a Charleston, S.C., church, shot by a hate-filled racist on a genocidal purge.
