    Andrew Breitbart at Big Government: give all but one of the GOP candidates an “F” for last night’s performance. The very premise of the Republican presidential debate, hosted by NBC/Politico and broadcast by corporate welfare queen MSNBC proves that conservatives don’t understand the power the media is trying to exert over the next election.

FRC Action: Family Breakdown Must be Addressed to Reverse Economic Decline

    FRC Action: “Until the crisis within the family is reversed, America’s economic slowdown is only going to increase. The Baby Boom generation has already entered its peak productivity phase. As this generation’s skilled workers retire, they is being replaced by a smaller and less productive and skilled work force. This can only spell more trouble for America’s economy.

Byron York: Left Paints the Campaign as a Religious War

    Byron York at Townhall : Surveying those articles, the executive editor of The New York Times, Bill Keller, concludes that “an unusually large number” of Republican candidates “belong to churches that are mysterious or suspect to many Americans.” Perry and Bachmann, in particular, are connected to “fervid subsets of evangelical Christianity,” which Keller says “has raised concerns about their respect for the separation of church and state, not to mention the separation of fact and fiction.”

Ed Whelan: Defend Our Laws: Justice Matters

    Ed Whalen at EPPC: In developing their positions on Supreme Court appointments and the Department of Justice, presidential candidates should 1) welcome the battle over the Supreme Court, 2) determine to fight hard for high-quality justices, 3) frame the argument for why abortion policy should be restored to the democratic processes, 4) support the Defense of Marriage Act, and 5) commit to select senior legal leaders who fully embrace their goals and priorities.

George Will: Why liberals fear the ‘Lochner’ decision

    George Will at The Washington Post: Since the New Deal, courts have stopped defending liberty of contract and other unenumerated rights grounded in America’s natural rights tradition. These are referred to by the Ninth Amendment, which explicitly protects unenumerated rights “retained by the people,” and by the “privileges or immunities” and “liberty” cited in the 14th Amendment. Progressivism, Bernstein argues, is hostile to America’s premise that individuals possess rights that preexist government and are not fully enumerated in the Constitution.

After First Amendment challenge, Livingston amends zoning code to allow cross on resident’s front lawn

    NJ.com: Racaniello, who felt that the township was preventing him from expressing his constitutionally protected religious beliefs, enlisted the Arizona-based Alliance Defense Fund — a coalition of Christian attorneys — which argued that the township was violating Racaniello’s First Amendment rights by enforcing “vague” ordinances in “ad hoc” manner. Although his attorney, Jonathan Scruggs, said in July that the alliance would take the township to court unless Racaniello was allowed to display his cross on the tree — which is within the right-of-way — Scruggs yesterday said he was “satisfied” that the new ordinance addressed his and Racaniello’s concerns. “I think it’s an appropriate response,” Scruggs said of the amended ordinance. “We’re satisfied that the vagueness of the ordinance was corrected.”

Michael Barone: Last Night The Reagan Library/MSNBC/Politico debate: Brian Williams . . . embarrassing

    Michael Barone at The Washington Examiner: The biggest mystery about the Reagan Library/MSNBC debate last night is why the Reagan Library allowed MSNBC to be the co-sponsor. Brian Williams, whom I haven’t watched much in recent years, seems to have been drinking liberally of the MSNBC kool-aid; many of his questions were so steeped in liberal distaste for Republican positions that it was embarrassing
