John Kasich Thinks the CNBC Debate Was Awesome
Every Republican in the world – and many liberal Democrats – agree that the CNBC debate was terrible and that the moderators blew it. Reince Priebus called it a crap sandwich on live TV and said that CNBC would never host a Republican debate again. Anderson Cooper called it “poorly produced” and said that the moderators did such a terrible job it impugned the entire | Read More »
Welcome to Barack Obama’s Syrian War.
Ah, sorry: ‘conflict.’ That’s what we call wars when we don’t want to call them wars. It’s sort of a tradition, for Democrats: see Korea, Vietnam, and Serbia. At any rate: …and so it begins. The White House will announce Friday that a small number of U.S. special operations forces will be sent into Syria, according to a senior U.S. official. The senior U.S. official | Read More »
Mitch McConnell passes budget bill at 3 AM.
has shown he has a monomania about at least one thing other than trashing conservatives: spending your money. The bill cleared on a 64-35 vote, with just 18 Republicans joining all Democrats in backing the bill. … The debt deal had already cleared the House on Wednesday, as part of a rush by Republican leaders to get it done as quickly as possible, leaving little | Read More »
Only the Left could say we have too many choices
For all his faults, has his moments. This moment comes in the form of a final shot at the White House, which is very much against his plan to increase school choice options: WASHINGTON — In what can be viewed as a late homage to departing House Speaker , the lower chamber has adopted anew a federally funded school voucher program for students in Washington, | Read More »
Jeb Bush: A Good Man Whose Time Is In The Past
The attack came with the reluctance of a good man knowing he must do something he does not want to do. At the CNBC debate in Boulder, Colo., the pretentious moderators asked about missing votes in the Senate. For perspective, Rubio has missed far fewer votes than Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton or John Kerry when they ran for president from the Senate. Sensing he must | Read More »
‘One Child’ Left Behind, But Don’t Celebrate Yet
Today it was reported that after more than thirty years, communist China has at long last changed their one-child policy. The policy, which resulted in millions of abortions – some elected, some forced, some sex-selected, all terrible – is now a two-child policy. Previously in China, you needed to live in a rural area to be permitted by the communist government to have more than | Read More »
Charlie Rose Defends Hillary’s Benghazi Lie And Rubio Is Having None Of It (Video)
You’d be hard pressed to find many people to defend CNBC and their handling of the GOP debate on Wednesday night, save for some media hacks looking to circle the wagons around their fellow media hacks, particularly John Hardwood and Becky Quick. Still, the train wreck format allowed the candidates some unscripted moments the live audience appreciated as did the viewing audience. One such moment | Read More »
Watch Jeb Bush Pick a Fight with Marco Rubio and Lose Badly
Many, maybe most, of those who watched last night’s GOP presidential debate say Sen. Marco Rubio won. I say Sen. Rubio and were both the winners. Everyone agrees that the losers were Jeb Bush and the CNBC so-called moderators. I say so-called because they made it abundantly clear that their sole purpose was to try and take down all of the Republican presidential candidates. They | Read More »
Since I called Ben Carson the frontrunner, he’s kept winning polls
If this cycle’s history servers, we’re going to have a lag between the debate last night, and the next round of polls after the debate. Pollsters are rushing to get in their polls before the debate, rather than after. It turns out they get more headlines by being part of the debate inclusion criteria, than they do for measuring the results of the poll. So | Read More »
How Do We Fix Education in the United States?
Earlier, I put up a piece on national test scores falling for the first time since the test began in 1990. It’s the first time we’ve seen such a dip, so it is not a trend. It’s not indicative of where we are headed. However, we do have a pretty good idea that things could get worse before they get better. One of the reasons | Read More »
Why We Should and Must Blame Reince Priebus For the CNBC Debate Fiasco
My friend and colleague (not to mention boss here at RedState) posted earlier today on why we should not blame the RNC and its chairman, Reince Priebus, for the travesty CNBC inflicted upon its viewers last night. As expected, Erick makes some very good points but I think he lets Preibus and company off too easy. Let’s take a dispassionate look at what happened and | Read More »
Rubio Says Media Is Super PAC For Democrats, Media Take To Twitter To Prove It
At CNBC’s “Your Money, Your Vote: The Republican Presidential Debate” on Wednesday, the candidates took several very effective shots at the moderators in particular and the media in general. One truly stand-out moment along these lines came from . The other fantastic takedown was from Marco Rubio. It was ‘s words that really got the members of the mainstream press fired up, though. The Democrats | Read More »
Ted Cruz Had a Very, Very Good Night
Last night at the CNBC debate, had a very, very good night. Even leftwing activists liked his answers and attack on the media. Liberal Hollywood comedian Patton Oswalt tweeted, “I hate Ted Cruz with the power of a million chainsaws revving but I agree with everything he just said.” Today, people are still cheering on Cruz’s comment about the Democrats’ debate. Here’s the thing though | Read More »
