Last night at the CNBC debate, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)100% 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 | Read More »
Via Shutterstock Of course, they’re doing this in their own special way. Two ways, to be exact. First of all, they would like to tell you that, if you like jack-o-lanterns, you’re causing global warming. From the Washington Times: Most of the 1.3 billion pounds of pumpkins produced in the U.S. end up in the trash, says the Energy Department’s website, becoming | Read More »
The Washington Post has a piece out about national test scores dipping for the first time since the federal government began this test in 1990. Fourth-graders and eighth-graders across the United States lost ground on national mathematics tests this year, the first declines in scores since the federal government began administering the exams in 1990. Reading performance also was sobering: Eighth-grade scores dropped, according to results | Read More »
Reince Priebus was very quick to denounce the CNBC debate after it was over. He was right too. But let’s not kid ourselves. Part of the reason he did so was because it was a public relations disaster for the RNC, which took charge of orchestrating the debates this year. But that is actually why I do not blame the RNC. Have we forgotten 2012? | Read More »
My thanks to the moderators of tonight’s debate on CNBC – Becky Quick, John Harwood, and Carl Quintanilla – for highlighting yet again how much I despise the mainstream media. With the debate on the channel no one really watches, and with yawn-incuding pre-debate chatter, we might have thought this would be a boring debate. Instead of being dull, the debate was an all-out liberal onslaught | Read More »
Well, the third Republican debate has come and gone. This one was thankfully shorter than the last, but in every other respect it was almost definitely worse. Contrary to expectations, Carson and Trump were largely irrelevant, even though they together are pulling in about 60% of the GOP vote right now. The moderators failed to control the debate and asked inane questions that actually got | Read More »
I do like Jeb Bush, but wow. Forget everything else about the CNBC debate and forget everything Jeb said, but one thing. Tonight, Jeb Bush brought up Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)94% skipping votes in the Senate. This came after the Bush Super PAC publicly announced it was going to blow up Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)94% over missing | Read More »
The reek of flopsweat wafting off the Bush campaign has reached the point where the EPA has declared it a Superfund site. For reasons known only to the geniuses running Jeb Bush’s campaign and SuperPAC they have reached one of two conclusions: either Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)94%‘s campaign is the only thing holding them back and they have to kill it | Read More »
I went out just a little bit ago to confront the, uh, “massive” protests of the GOP Debate, consisting of literally dozens of people. One group in particular stood out, as they were holding signs claiming that hedge funds had bought all the GOP candidates. I went over to talk to one, and this happened: Hmm, I thought. Curious that he specifically singles out | Read More »
Absolutely no one knows more about, or has more influence over, the Iowa GOP caucuses. Just now, Iowa radio personality Steve Deace sat down with RedState where we are live at the CNBC Debate in Denver to discuss Trump, Carson, Cruz, Rubio, and the Iowa Caucuses. Enjoy!
When a Presidential campaign is reaching the point of desperation, they will seek to do almost anything to gain a foothold in the race. Jeb Bush, who many thought wouldn’t have much of an issue clearing the field of GOP candidates to take on Hillary Clinton in 2016, has now fallen below Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)94% in the RCP Polling Average. | Read More »
Ahhh. The Airing of Grievances. A perennial favorite every holiday season. Donald Trump finally got to John Kasich. Now the Ohio governor is down a path that has tripped up other Republican presidential hopefuls. Kasich abruptly shifted his tone Tuesday by sharply rebuking three of his higher polling rivals for the nomination: Trump, Ben Carson and Jeb Bush. This is a risky escalation of Kasich’s | Read More »
