  • Collapse of the Cairo Doctrine Sep 25, 2012 12:00 AM
    Columnist Charles Krauthammer: On June 4, 2009, in Cairo, Obama promised "a new beginning" offering Muslims "mutual respect."But no matter. Obama had come to remonstrate and restrain the hyperpower that, by his telling, had lost its way after 9/11, creating Guantanamo, practicing torture, imposing its will with arrogance and presumption.

     
  • The abandonment of Israel Sep 14, 2012 12:00 AM
    Columnist Charles Krauthammer: At the same time that it does nothing, the administration warns Israel sternly, repeatedly, publicly, even threateningly not to strike the Iranian nuclear program.

     
  • The empathy gap Sep 10, 2012 12:00 AM
    Columnist Charles Krauthammer: Given the state of the economy, by any historical standard, Barack Obama should be 15 points behind Mitt Romney. But on "caring about average people," Obama wins by 22 points. Maintaining the empathy gap was a principal goal of the Democratic convention.

     
  • The ‘deterrence works’ fantasy Sep 3, 2012 12:00 AM
    Columnist Charles Krauthammer: What I have decided is that deterring Iran is fundamentally different from deterring the Soviet Union.

     
  • The Cordesman criteria Aug 27, 2012 12:00 AM
    Columnist Charles Krauthammer: If we simply continue to drift through negotiations, either America, Europe, the Gulf Arabs and the Israelis will forever be condemned to live under the threat of nuclear blackmail (even nuclear war) from a regime the State Department identifies as the world's greatest exporter of terror.

     
  • Romney’s present, Ryan’s future Aug 21, 2012 12:00 AM
    Columnist Charles Krauthammer: While Ryan's effect on 2012 is as yet undetermined — it depends on the success or failure of Mediscare — there is less doubt about the meaning of Ryan's selection for beyond 2012. He could well become the face of Republicanism for a generation.

     
  • The case against re-election Aug 10, 2012 12:00 AM

     
  • Romney’s excellent trip Aug 6, 2012 12:00 AM
    Columnist Charles Krauthammer: At the outset of his recent foreign trip, Mitt Romney committed a gaffe. In answer to a question about the Olympics, he expressed skepticism about London's preparations. Soon that initial stumble was transmuted into a metaphor for everything that followed. The mainstream media decided with near unanimity that the rest of the trip amounted to a gaffe-prone disaster. Really?

     
  • Busted: Mr. Pfeiffer and the White House Blog Aug 1, 2012 12:00 AM
    Columnist Charles Krauthammer: In my previous column about Mitt Romney's trip abroad and U.S. foreign policy, I wrote that Barack Obama "started his presidency by returning to the British Embassy the bust of Winston Churchill that had graced the Oval Office." Within hours, White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer had created something of a bonfire.

     
  • Romney -- not innocents -- abroad Jul 29, 2012 12:00 AM
    Columnist Charles Krauthammer: Unlike Barack Obama, Romney abroad will not be admonishing his country, criticizing his president or declaring himself a citizen of the world. Indeed, Romney should say nothing of substance, just offer effusive expressions of affection for his hosts.

     
  • Did the state make you great? Jul 25, 2012 12:00 AM
    Columnist Charles Krauthammer: Obama compounds the fallacy by declaring the state to be the font of entrepreneurial success. How so? It created the infrastructure — roads, bridges, schools, Internet — off which we all thrive. Absurd.

     
  • The Islamist ascendancy Jul 13, 2012 12:00 AM
    Columnist Charles Krauthammer: The Arab Spring is a misnomer. This is an Islamist ascendancy, likely to dominate Arab politics for a generation.

     
  • The imperial presidency revisited Jul 8, 2012 12:00 AM
    Columnist Charles Krauthammer: President Obama adopts a policy of major non-enforcement of the immigration law and promulgates it unilaterally, while his Justice Department claims the right to invalidate state laws that might in some way impinge on that very non-enforcement.

     
  • The immigration bombshell: Naked lawlessness Jun 24, 2012 12:00 AM
    Columnist Charles Krauthammer: Barring deportation of these young people is not proecutorial discretion. This is a fundamental rewriting of the law.

     
  • What Wisconsin means to unions Jun 10, 2012 12:00 AM
    Columnist Charles Krauthammer: Tuesday, June 5, 2012, will be remembered as the beginning of the long decline of the public-sector union.

     
  • Same-sex marriage: Empathy or right? May 21, 2012 12:00 AM
    Columnist Charles Krauthammer: Obama knows he has boxed himself in. His "rights" argument compels him to nationalize same-sex marriage and sharpen hostility to proponents of traditional marriage — a place he is loath to go.

     
  • Echoes of ’67: Israel unites May 13, 2012 12:00 AM
    Columnist Charles Krauthammer: Benjamin Netanyahu could have ensured four more years in power. He chose instead to form a national coalition that guarantees 18 months of stability 18 months during which, if the world does not act to stop Iran, Israel will.

     
  • Divider in chiefMay 7, 2012 12:00 AM
    Columnist Charles Krauthammer: This is the man who sprang from nowhere with that thrilling 2004 convention speech declaring that there is not a black America and white America and Latino America and Asian America; theres the United States of America. That was then. Today, we are just sects with quarrels

     
  • While Syria burns Apr 29, 2012 12:00 AM
    Columnist Charles Krauthammer: Last year President Obama ordered U.S. intervention in Libya under the grand new doctrine of Responsibility to Protect. Moammar Gadhafi was threatening a massacre in Benghazi. To stand by and do nothing would have been a betrayal of who we are, explained the president. In the year since, the government of Syria has more than threatened massacres. It has carried them out.

     
  • Farewell, the New Frontier Apr 22, 2012 12:00 AM
    Columnist Charles Krauthammer: Nothing could better symbolize China overtaking America than its taking our place on the moon, walking over footprints first laid down, then casually abandoned, by us.
