WOLF: Kathleen, I've got a feeling you're still in Kansas

Liberals are a curious breed. They actually believe the government can mandate you into prosperity. They wave a magic wand, and the universe bends to their whim. At the end of each day, they rest their weary heads blissfully - willfully - unaware of the damage they cause. Published April 20, 2012

WOLF: What happened to my Barack Obama?

Barack Obama is not just our first biracial president, he was supposed to be our first post-racial president. Instead, he joins forces with race hustler Al Sharpton and escalates a tragic shooting into an inflamed, full-blown national race fight. What happened? Published April 3, 2012

WOLF: Obamacare's inescapable death march

The die is cast: Obamacare will not survive. This is not a prediction of how the Supreme Court will rule on President Obama's health care takeover, mind you. It's the harsh reality that if Obamacare does not die a judicial or political death - or better yet, both - it will die an economic death, and if it does, it will take America down with it.

WOLF: Obamacare: It's a big, disastrous deal

Joe Biden may not always have complete command of the facts. Franklin D. Roosevelt did not hold his fireside chats on television. The word 'jobs' does not have three letters. And you do not need a slight Indian accent to shop at 7-Eleven or Dunkin' Donuts. But give the vice president credit - his description of Obamacare is spot-on: "This is a big [expletive] deal."

WOLF: Democrats sneak Uncle Sam into your bedroom

Pop quiz: What is the most expensive lunch you can buy? Answer: The one someone convinces you is free. Ask your average fifth-grader if there's such thing as a free lunch. Now ask a Democrat. Care to wager who's smarter? Published March 12, 2012

WOLF: Mitt beat Rick, but Newt beat Barack

This wouldn't be the first time the media missed the real story. In the wake of a split Super Tuesday, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum scored wins against each other, but it was former Speaker Newt Gingrich who single-handedly drove President Obama into panic mode. Published March 8, 2012

WOLF: Is this still America?

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction," warned the late President Reagan. It's probably a good thing the Gipper hasn't been forced to witness what the current generation of authoritarian rulers has done to the land of the free and home of the brave.

WOLF: Time for a Romneycare mea culpa

Conservative voters have a message for the Republican establishment: Not so fast. The Washington-knows-best GOP insiders who gave us John McCain, George W. Bush, Bob Dole and George H.W. Bush are now pushing Mitt Romney. Conservative voters are pushing back. Hard. Published February 10, 2012

WOLF: Obamacare is worth getting angry about

In November, Republicans will face an incumbent whose failed presidency makes Jimmy Carter look worthy of Mount Rushmore. And they will lose unless they focus like a laser on the two intertwined strands of disastrous DNA that define the Obama era: Obamanomics and Obamacare. It is mystifying, then, that the GOP would risk surrendering either of these issues. Published February 3, 2012

WOLF: Panicked GOP insiders land in bizarro world

The 2012 Republican primary race has passed well beyond the rabbit hole into some extra-dimensional bizarro world where up is down, black is white and the allies of the candidate who disavowed Reaganism would have us believe that the leader of the "second stage of the Reagan Revolution" is somehow insufficiently Reaganesque.

WOLF: Tea Party rising for Newt Gingrich

So long as the Washington establishment continues to underestimate - and even misunderstand - the Tea Party, insiders will continue to be pummeled by the grass-roots giant that no longer sleeps. Democrats dismissed the Tea Party in 2010 and took a historic shellacking. Republicans would be wise to learn from their mistake. Published January 23, 2012

WOLF: Mitt defends Mitt while Newt upholds conservatism

Great moments in history are achieved not necessarily by great people, but rather by courageous people who will defend great ideas. The American story is one of an enduring struggle by imperfect champions of perfect ideals: natural rights, individual liberty, independence, sovereignty, the rule of law and more. America, even in its third century, deserves nothing less. Published January 19, 2012

WOLF: Newtering Obama's re-election strategy

The White House cannot be happy with the recent developments in the GOP primary race. In a bizarre turn of events, the very campaign strategy that the Democrats are just salivating to use against the now presumptive Republican nominee, Mitt Romney, had its first test run in New Hampshire, and it failed. Miserably. Published January 17, 2012

WOLF: Cronyism doesn't sell in corn country

One of the most encouraging, if underreported, developments of our times is the collapsed career of Nebraska's soon-to-be former Democratic senator, Ben Nelson. His crucial 60th vote for Obamacare was secured with the infamous "Cornhusker Kickback" deal that ultimately sealed his own demise. Published January 3, 2012

WOLF: In Obama he trusts

There's something profoundly tragic about the failed presidency of Barack Obama. He was supposed to be a new kind of president, a man who embodied hope and would transcend petty politics and even race. Instead, we're left with a downgraded America that is stagnating under the weight of its bloated government. Published December 28, 2011

Illustration: Glenn Beck by Alexander Hunter for The Washington Times

WOLF: Staying true to the Tea Party

If you like Glenn Beck, you probably hate women. Sounds outlandish, I know, but if you apply Mr. Beck's own twisted logic, it follows. Glenn Beck recently accused millions of Tea Partyers of racism. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has also accused Tea Partyers of racism. Ergo, if you like him but not her, you hate women. Published December 14, 2011

WOLF: Channeling Milton Friedman to a conservative victory

Democrats didn't understand the Tea Party when it launched in 2009, and they don't understand it now. They proclaim that if Republicans nominate Newt Gingrich or Mitt Romney, the Tea Party will have failed. They could not be more wrong, and their transparent attempt to dispirit conservatives won't work. Those outmatched liberals who received a good old-fashioned shellacking from the Tea Party in 2010 are hardly in a position to define its future success. Published December 7, 2011

Illustration: Romney decoy by Linas Garsys for The Washington Times

WOLF: Candidate in the cross hairs

The Washington establishment, ever a font of wisdom, has chosen its candidate. Mitt Romney's victory in the Republican primaries, the insiders say, is a fait accompli. They claim he's the most electable, the safe bet. Fine; let's play along for the moment and consider what the Democrats have in store for him in the general election. Published December 1, 2011

WOLF: Bye-bye, Berwick

Obamacare is the Kryptonite of American politics: Not even Superman himself could survive touching this truly terrible law. Witness the latest voluntary victim of President Obama's race toward socialized medicine: one Dr. Donald M. Berwick. Few are more deserving than he. Obamacare is heading for the ash heap of history, where it belongs, and so are the politicians who forced it upon an unwilling America. Good riddance. Published November 28, 2011

WOLF: Capitalist lesson from first Thanksgiving

Despite our current perilous times, Americans still have boundless reasons for giving thanks. True, our economy continues to falter, we face yet another national credit downgrade, and families suffer with high unemployment. The nation teeters precariously between free-market capitalism and European-style socialism. But fortunately, we have guidance from those brave Pilgrims aboard the Mayflower who, nearly four centuries ago, faced a choice similar to ours. Published November 23, 2011
