Carly Fiorina’s Merit is Not that She’s a Woman
I like Carly Fiorina. She is a fantastic communicator with a precise, measured delivery. She appears firm in her resolve to be a leader, and not just an entertaining candidate. I believe she is an excellent addition to the race for the White House. Her inclusion is not just a positive addition to the GOP field, but to the idea of a presidential campaign as | Read More »
The Outsider Fallacy
If the polls are to be believed, the GOP primary electorate really, really wants someone who is an “outsider” to be our nominee for President. Not just an outsider to Washington, mind you, but an outsider to politics altogether. The latest FoxNews poll has Trump in first with 25%, followed by Carson in second with 12% of the vote. Carly Fiorina checks in 7th with | Read More »
Has Trump peaked? One poll doesn’t tell us that.
The Real Clear Politics 2016 nomination poll chart appears to be showing that Donald Trump has peaked, and is on the way down. But if you dig past the pretty picture, it’s not clear that’s the case.
Carly Fiorina Speaks at #RSG15
Based on the responses to the debates last night, it appears that Carly Florida truly made her presence known in the 2016 race despite only being at the supposed “under-card” debate. Her speech to this year’s RedState Gathering did not disappoint. Check it out: As you might expect, she discusses who she has responded to the standard kind of questions any woman running for the | Read More »
Here at the Redstate Gathering, we’re going to be hearing from most of the Republican Presidential candidates. As they all arrive, the debate is going to be what’s on their minds, and on the minds of their campaign staffers. Whether they did well or not, what they do here will try to build on or recover from the debates, because debates matter.

Carly Fiorina Would Like to Reclaim Feminism
I remember in the summer of 2014, in the thick of midterm election hype, Carly Fiorina addressed the supposed “War on Women” in an appearance on CNN. “A lot of women, me included, are sick of the ‘war on women,’” “‘Strong and bitter words indicate a weak cause,’” Fiorina read. “And that’s exactly right. The War on Women is shameless, baseless propaganda. There’s no fact | Read More »
What Each Candidate Says About His/Her Own Campaign Logo
Well, with most of the candidates out there and a few we’ve never heard of, let’s examine the 2016 logos on the GOP side. We may, or may not, have asked each candidate for first person commentary on their own logos. Jeb Bush Hi!! My name is Jeb!! I don’t have a last name because I’m your buddy!!

Here They Come
Carly Fiorina and Ben Carson are declaring their bids for President of the United States. Coming soon, Mike Huckabee and Rick Perry will do the same. Bobby Jindal will most likely also announce. (I expect to see them all at the RedState Gathering, by the way) For those keeping score at home, that is one old corrupt white woman against a female former CEO of | Read More »
Tech at Night: The Patent fight is on (with bonus Logan Act “violation”)
Looks like we have the same problem going on with patents we’ve had with so many other legislative issues over the years. There’s a kernel of a good idea (go after patent trolls), but then the lobbyists all pile on, and we get a monster of Comprehensive Patent Reform. Which works about as well as comprehensive immigration reform or omnibus budgeting. ACU’s against it, economists | Read More »
My Candid Candidate Thoughts After CPAC
Watch out conservatives. Jeb Bush is in this to win this and he just might. I met privately with Governor Bush at CPAC. He struck me as far more polished than many of the other candidates and he clearly recognizes the quality, however superficial it might be to some, of looking the part. More interesting, I have a ton of friends who like him. They | Read More »
Fiorina 2016: A Campaign Without a Raison D’être
In a year in which the GOP promises to field its strongest field of qualified and experienced candidates in a generation, and in which there promises to be a veritable buffet of viable options for establishment and movement conservatives alike, for some reason the existence of Carly Fiorina’s bizarrely pointless 2016 campaign continues to be a story worth reporting on for the political media. The usual | Read More »
