    IBD ^ | 7/26/2016 | George Will
    En route to fight one of his many duels, French politician Georges Clemenceau bought a one-way train ticket. Was he pessimistic? "Not at all. I always use my opponent's return ticket for the trip back." Some Hillary Clinton advisors, although not that serene, think her victory is probable and can be assured. Her challenge is analogous to Ronald Reagan's in 1980, when voters were even more intensely dissatisfied than they now are. There were hostages in Iran and stagflation's "misery index" (the sum of the inflation and unemployment rates) was 21.98. By August 1979, 84% of Americans said the country...

George Will -- way back, long ago when I was still spinning records as a disc jockey -- was an idol of mine. I remember I met George Will in Dallas in 1992, Republican convention. I was there, having been sent there by a radio station in Kansas City that wanted to get me out of town. So they sent me down to Dallas and said, "Go down there and prepare commentaries and then send 'em back. We might air them and we might not."...

    For many years now grassroots conservatives have grumbled that the Republican establishment in Washington views them with contempt. Rarely has that contempt been displayed as brazenly as it was on this weeks episode of Fox News Sunday. During the shows panel discussion, columnist George Will and Arthur Brooks of the American Enterprise Institute in particular showed how GOP bigwigs view their base. Will started the banter by suggesting that the popularity of insurgent GOP candidates was tantamount to primal scream psychotherapy where voters are venting their frustrations by backing political newcomers over their more traditional rivals. Brooks seconded Wills thesis...
  • The 'Quiet Catastrophe' Of Men Choosing To Not Seek Work

    Investors Business Daily ^ | 10/06/2016 | GEORGE F. WILL
    The "quiet catastrophe" is particularly dismaying because it is so quiet, without social turmoil or even debate. It is this: After 88 consecutive months of the economic expansion that began in June 2009, a smaller percentage of American males in the prime working years (ages 25 to 54) are working than were working near the end of the Great Depression in 1940, when the unemployment rate was above 14%. If the labor force participation rate were as high today as it was as recently as 2000, nearly 10 million more Americans would have jobs. The work rate for adult men...

    I believe Mr. Will has a genuine distaste for what may become Trump Conservatism. Trump represents a kind of happy warrior style of American politician, similar to Harry Truman and Rough Rider Teddy Roosevelt. It's obviously too low-class for Will, Romney and Jeb Bush, who are all too delicate for the political blood sport that the Left has imposed on our politics. Nothing is too low for the Left. Literally nothing. The national GOP has been in decline for years, running decrepit candidates like Bob Dole, John McCain, and Mitt Romney -- who actually did flinch in the last debate...

    If for some reason, though, Kristol and Will believe Trump poses such a unique threat to America and to the Republican partys legacy, then one final and admittedly simple point should have put them at ease long ago. Trump is not running for dictator, but instead for President of a country with a strong system of separation of powers and checks and balances in place. The Republican party that Will foolishly and haphazardly abandoned will, at all times, be in Congress to reign in any of Trumps outlandish proposals. Therefore, all Never-Trumpers should take a deep breath and realize that...

    On this weekend’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” Washington Post columnist George Will explained why he left the Republican Party over presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. Will said, “I left it for the same reason I joined it in 1964 when I voted for Barry Goldwater, because I was a conservative. I leave for the same reason, I’m a conservative. To give you a time line, shortly after Trump became the presumptive nominee he had a summit meeting with Paul Ryan where they stressed their vast shared ground, which is more important than their differences. I thought that was puzzling...

But I dont think that if you want high-class universities, you should expect them to lower their standards in order to make up for some inadequacies in our secondary education system. Nobody will explain to me how you can make a system of quotas work...

He promised that in Washington he would be "one less vote for an agenda that makes you want to throw up." He was elected to the Senate in 2002 and soon almost certainly will join the Republican presidential scramble, enlivening it with his quick intelligence, policy fluency, mordant wit and provocative agenda.

    Donald Trump will be the Republican nominee for president. As harrowing a prospect as that might be for some of us, the reality is that Trump can't be stopped. He needs a mere 43% of the remaining delegates up for grabs to get to 1237 and a first ballot victory. Given that he is far ahead in California, a state that awards the winner of their primary all 170 of its delegates, The Golden State will almost certainly put Trump over the top if he wins there. So what is George Will talking about here? Will penned a column with...

    Donald Trumps damage to the Republican Party, although already extensive, has barely begun. Republican quislings will multiply, slinking into support of the most anti-conservative presidential aspirant in their partys history. These collaborationists will render themselves ineligible to participate in the partys reconstruction. Ted Cruzs announcement of his preferred running mate has enhanced the nomination process by giving voters pertinent information. They already know the only important thing about Trumps choice: His running mate will be unqualified for high office because he or she will think Trump is qualified. Hillary Clintons optimal running mate might be Sen. Sherrod Brown of Ohio,...

On the policy side, on abortion, he was asked a question that every novice Republican candidate knows hes going to be asked. And he didnt have an answer. Now, thats partly because hes only been pro-life for about 15 minutes.

    In his latest column, George Will charges that Senate Republicans have had an incoherent response to the Supreme Court vacancy that is a partisan reflex in search of a justifying principle. But its Wills attack on Senate Republicans that lacks coherence: 1. Will purports to present five reasons that Senate Republicans have provided for their determination to keep the vacancy open until after the election. But his presentation of those supposed reasons isnt at all fair. For starters, Will entirely omits what I understand to be the predominant reason: that filling the Scalia vacancy with an Obama pick would drive...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) told CNN’s Dana Bash today that the Senate would not confirm Judge Merrick Garland, who was nominated by President Obama earlier this week, in the lame duck session. Senate Republicans have been adamant that the next president, whoever that may be, should decide this nomination. This has drawn the ire of Democrats who feel that Republicans are skirting their constitutional obligation to advise and consent on judicial nominations, despite the fact that the Constitution doesn’t say the Senate must consider a nominee upon recommendation by the president. Yes, Senate Republicans can sit on their...

    What boxer Sonny Liston's manager said of him (Sonny had his good points, the trouble was his bad points) is true of Marco Rubio. His strengths include intelligence, articulateness and, usually, cheerfulness. His misjudgments involve, in ascending order of importance, the Senate immigration bill of 2013, sugar, Libya and S-590. Together these reveal a recurring penchant for ill-considered undertakings. Rubio's retreat, under withering political heat, from the immigration bill was undignified but not reprehensible. The bill had 1,197 pages because the 906-page Affordable Care Act had not slaked the congressional appetite for "comprehensive" solutions to complex problems. The immigration bill...

Every time Obama attacks this country he is also boasting about his own superior wisdom and morality. Obama is a true narcissist, Trump is a humorous boaster -- it's part...

Putin slyly stirred America's politics by saying Trump is "very ... talented," adding that...

    George Will is warning that if the GOP nominates Donald Trump for president, it would be the "end" of the conservative party. “Conservatives’ highest priority now must be to prevent Trump from winning the Republican nomination in this, the GOP’s third epochal intraparty struggle in 104 years,” he writes in a new Washington Post column Thursday.

    We’ll tell YOU which black lives matter. And odds are better than a million to one that those that matter will only be those that advance the progressive narrative in some unconstructive way. Furthermore, let’s just stipulate to this upfront: none of them will be either conservative or Republican.Case in point: Clarence Thomas. George Will’s column is an elaboration on Justice Thomas’ position that the judicial branch should move to limit the legislative branch’s practice of delegating its power to the executive branch. If you’ve been paying attention over the past 40 years or so you’ve noticed how this shift...

    Give thanks this day for some indirect blessings of liberty, including the behavior-beyond-satire of what are generously called institutions of higher education. People who are imprecisely called educators have taught, by their negative examples, what intelligence is not. Melissa Click is the University of Missouri academic who shouted “I need some muscle over here” to prevent a photojournalist from informing the public about a public demonstration intended to influence the public. Click’s academic credentials include a University of Massachusetts doctoral dissertation titled “It’s ‘a good thing’: The Commodification of Femininity, Affluence, and Whiteness in the Martha Stewart Phenomenon.” Her curriculum...

    If you needed any more reason not to support Paul Ryan as Speaker of the House, check out the Fox News hacks this past Sunday. Karl Rove and George Will are basically in love with Paul Ryan, claiming he would be a perfect selection to replace the weeping drunk Boehner. George Will must have some sort of connection to Republican RINOs from the state of Wisconsin. His wife worked on Scott Walkers failed campaign, and now he wants Paul Ryan to be the next speaker. When you add Karl Rove to the mix, it basically tells you what type of...
