The Trump Ground Game Is A huuuuge loser
The Donald’s lack of concern or ignorance about the basic technique of American politics surely contributed to Trump’s defeat by the excellent ground game of Sen. Ted Cruz’ campaign. Worse Trump’s failed Iowa effort, led by Chuck Laudner who ran Santorum’s 2012 Iowa ground game, was stronger than Trumps operation in New Hampshire.

Marco Rubio’s Biggest Flaw
Accused of everything from being a part of the establishment to being a robot, Marco Rubio has somehow defied the odds and outperformed expectations. It’s a credit to Rubio’s bona fides that all the right people (read: The Media) are attacking him as too much of a robot now so soon after they praised his ability to pull out a personal win in Iowa. However, | Read More »

Marco Rubio Guilty of Using Rhetorical Device Taught To Middle School Students
Marco Rubio has been hammered pretty hard since Saturday night about sounding “too robotic” to be a viable candidate. The basis for this accusation was his repetition of the idea that Barack Obama isn’t someone ignorant of what he’s doing to the country.

Make America Awesome
As the Republican primary season kicks into high gear, a debate is playing out among various groups as to how one effectively takes down Donald Trump.

Shorter Kasich: ‘I’m to the left of Hillary.’
I get that New Hampshire is not exactly a bastion of conservative thought. A Republican hasn’t held the state in the general election in almost 16 years. I also get that John Kasich has not pretended to be anything like what is traditionally called a conservative. In fact, he claims to be some kind of “new” conservative which, if history is a guide for candidates | Read More »

It’s showing movement for the second tier of candidates that’s different from before. Different in a way that’s bad news for Donald Trump.
