Road Tripping Across America: Hilarity With Hillary
“For the next 18 months, Hillary Clinton is going to be the Jim Henson of the political press. Her hand will be all the way up their collective rectum moving their lips to sing ‘It’s Not Easy Being Queen’.”I was wrong. I was convinced Hillary Clinton would not run for President. I assumed she’d be, in essence, the bullet proof vest of the Democratic Party. | Read More »
I, for one, agree with @HillaryClinton
Today, Hillary Clinton announced her big news – she’s running for president in 2016. I know, guys, you’re as shocked as I am. Here’s the thing, though: In the video where she announces her intentions, she says something I really agree with: “When our families are strong, America is strong.” I, as a conservative and general supporter of strong families, agree with the former Secretary | Read More »
Hillary Clinton’s Consultants’ Consultants’ Interns Announce Hillary Is Running to Subsidize Dem Consultants
Three hours later than the press had told us she would announce, Hillary announced what everyone knew — she is running to subsidize Democratic consultants who’ve been left on the sidelines while Team Chicago ran things. Oh, she’s running for President too. Hope, change, and all that — her logo is a bit Trauma Hospital. A blue H with a red arrow, it almost suggests, | Read More »
Ted Cruz will have the money to compete.
There are only four words we need to take away from this Bloomberg report about Ted Cruz SuperPAC fundraising: Thirty one million dollars. I don’t know whether he will win or not, but Ted Cruz will be able to raise the money to compete in this Presidential primary season.
Though not yet announcing a Presidential campaign, Governor Mike Huckabee of Arkansas is coming out pretty forcefully on dealing with national security and Islamic terrorism. He has a piece here at RedState this morning on the very issue. He’s also out with a new video on the subject — one that I think resonates. As someone who hates snakes, I’ll have nightmares from the video, | Read More »
Thank You, Senator Paul
I hope the other Republicans candidates say what Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) 86% said today. In Kentucky, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) 86% pointed out both Republicans and Democrats have been driving up spending. He said Republicans cannot win by being Democrat-lite, but they too have contributed to the national debt. It is true. And it is something the GOP | Read More »
Surprise! The Rand Paul Store Blatantly Caters to the Paranoid
Well, surprise surprise, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) 86% is officially running for President. However, in the category of actually surprising news, Paul’s basic argument for his primary candidacy is… that he’s the most electable candidate in the field. Seriously. Paul gave a sneak peak into what his message will be in a pre-announcement video that has been prominently featured on the influential conservative | Read More »
Welcome to the Arena, Senator Paul
Today, in Kentucky, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) 86% is going to announce his campaign for President of the United States. In 2010, when I backed Senator Paul in the primary, I got an enormous amount of grief from many conservatives and Republicans who did not like Senator Paul’s father and assumed that Senator Paul would be a clone of his father. I | Read More »
Scott Walker Flip Flops on Immigration Stance?
Is Governor Walker for amnesty, securing the border, a pathway to citizenship, or is he against it? The answer is clearly yes. Confused? So am I. It was only a few weeks ago that the Presidential Candidate in waiting was on Fox News Sunday emphatically stating his new firm position on immigration and border security. “My view has changed. I’m flat out saying it, candidates | Read More »

On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson is joined by Andrew Malcolm to discuss Ted Cruz joining the 2016 campaign, his strengths and weaknesses and why he could mop the floor with his competition in the debates.

The Cruz Conundrum
Ted Cruz became the first Republican to officially announce his candidacy today, which means the Silly Season has really and truly begun in earnest. I like Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100% a lot as a Senator and I think that he will bring a lot of energy to the debates and that he will have important points to make about the value of | Read More »
Welcome to the Arena, Senator Cruz
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100% will today announce he is running for President. At our very first RedState Gathering, Ted Cruz showed up. He was the Solicitor General of Texas. I did not know him, but he’d gone to law school with a friend and several other friends highly recommended him. He stood on stage to speak along with another guy named | Read More »
A 2016 Advantage?
Yesterday, something phenomenal happened. While I dare not call DOOM (1. that’s Moe Lane’s job and 2. I think it would be a bit premature), I do believe Hillary irreparably hurt herself in the race for the White House in 2016. My colleague Leon Wolf updated the Republican Power Rankings yesterday, so you can see where the GOP is in terms of having a series | Read More »
