  • In his news conference today President Bush really didn’t get to the key point on soaring gas and food prices: The best short-term policy is to strengthen the dollar. Bring back King Dollar.

  • The Fed needs to stop cutting interest rates and halt the run on the dollar. They can do this by announcing a lengthy pause in their interest rate statement due out this Wednesday at 2:15 pm.

  • Some notable quotes from last night's Kudlow & Company: Fed Finally Gets It Right It all goes back to March 17th. Bear Stearns Monday. That’s when the world changed.

  • All this postmortem election stuff is getting boring. Stock markets appear to be feasting on a McCain victory in November against either Hillary or Obama -- especially Obama. Market indexes are having a terrific rally right now. In fact, they have been rallying ever since late January, when McCain emerged as the Republican nominee.

  • Some notable quotes from last night's Kudlow & Company: Farrell’s Pearls of Wisdom: The market can stay irrational far longer than you and I can stay solvent. If somebody stood up and said, we must defend the dollar, stop cutting interest rates -- [then] the dollar rallies, oil comes down, and the market takes on another leg. -Vince Farrell, managing director at Scotsman Capital Management. Also: Rescuing the U.S. Peso; beware the Taxman.

  • Some notable quotes from last night's Kudlow & Company: "[If Obama is the Democratic nominee] this is going to be -- ideologically -- the greatest distinction that we’ve had in candidates since the 1980 election when Jimmy Carter ran against Reagan." And much more...

  • Investors worried about the dollar, as I am, should really take a look at the recent London Daily Telegraph story written by Ambrose Evans-Pritchard. He reports an interview with Jean-Claude Juncker, the Luxembourg premier and chair of Eurozone financiers who is also known as the EU’s “Mr. Euro.” The interview strongly hints of a G7 action to halt the collapse of the dollar...

  • Bob Novak, the highly distinguished veteran columnist and author, told the American Spectator New York dinner group last night that John McCain will defeat Barack Obama in November’s election, although the Democrats will enhance their majorities in both the Senate and the House.

  • It’s rather amusing watching the liberal media launch a full-scale attack on George Stephanopoulos and Charles Gibson, with General Tom Shales of the Washington Post leading the charge.

  • Some notable quotes from Friday night's Kudlow & Company: Andy Busch on the dollar; Mark Skousen on hot investment opportunity; Arthur Laffer on Obama-nomics; and Robert Reich on why he's had enough of mudslinging by Hillary's campaign camp.
