Fake Nice Guy John Kasich Thinks Money Grows on Trees

Nothing has been more disingenuous this entire campaign season – including Donald Trump’s entire schtick – than John Kasich pretending to be a nice guy for like a week in New Hampshire. Kasich got away with it because New Hampshire voters are apparently more addicted to heroin than previously believed, and also because everyone was busy watching Trump, Cruz, Rubio, and Christie. People who have | Read More »

Water Cooler 2/11/16 Open Thread – A pot predicament, Ben’s still in, Dump the draft

Rubio concedes the possibility of a brokered convention:  Marco Rubio’s campaign manager now admits to ABC  it could be a long slow slog: “We very easily could be looking at May — or the convention,” [Terry] Sullivan said aboard Rubio’s charter jet from New Hampshire to South Carolina on Wednesday. “I would be surprised if it’s not May or the convention.” Contra to RedState’s own | Read More »

Donald Trump Financed The Gang of 8

One of the most common things you hear from a Trump fanatic is that the single most important thing this election is illegal immigration and that Donald Trump is the only candidate who is talking about building a wall and deporting everyone that’s here illegally. Trump has claimed that no one would be talking about illegal immigration had he not brought it up, which is | Read More »

Rubio Hits Trump On Inexperience And Un-presidential Behavior

Sen. Marco Rubio has generally avoided attacking his GOP primary opponents, and on Wednesday Rubio said his recent debate flub was due to his reluctance to take down a fellow Republican. That has changed in the South Carolina street fight. Rubio went after Donald Trump Thursday morning attacking the Donald’s lack of foreign policy experience and his un-presidential behavior:

Chris Matthews: Ted Cruz “operates below the level of human life”

I kid you not. I did not make up that quote. I’ve really given up trying to figure out how Chris Matthews keeps his job, and of course, it is not much of a coincidence that this happened on Scarborough’s show considering he is obviously in the bag for Donald Trump.

Louisiana’s Democrat Governor Threatens College Football Over Taxes

Last night, a Democrat was on TV and pretty much threatened to ruin everything… and surprisingly, it’s not Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders I’m referring to. Louisiana’s newly-seated Democratic governor, John Bel Edwards, gave an address to the state calling for new taxes to be passed by the state legislature. If he does not get those tax increases, then it will mean no college football | Read More »

John Kasich’s Campaign Strategy is Insane

The John Weaver-led campaign strategy of John Kasich has at no point ever had any plan other than “win New Hampshire.” Kasich did not accomplish that, or even come particularly close. In fact, Kasich got almost exactly the amount of support that the John Weaver-led Jon Huntsman campaign did in 2012, and Huntsman dropped out immediately following New Hampshire. However, with a more muddled (and crowded) | Read More »

We all knew this candidate was taking cues from the Nixon administration

Republicans have pretty thoroughly repudiated Richard Nixon by this point. We’re less friendly with China, we’re less friendly to creating new agencies like EPA, and we sure aren’t breaking into Democrat offices. Importantly, starting with Ronald Reagan, and continuing with George W. Bush, we recognized that when we face ideological actors, sometimes Realpolitik doesn’t have all the answers. So it turns out the Democrats are | Read More »

Ben Carson Will Help Donald Trump at LEAST Through South Carolina

After finishing 4th in Iowa and 8th in New Hampshire (behind Carly Fiorina, who completely missed the last two debates), Ben Carson is currently polling 5th (out of 6 remaining candidates) in South Carolina. He further appears to be doing less campaigning in South Carolina than his rivals and has purchased less media. In short, there is not at all an obvious path for him | Read More »

Democrat Debate: Two Old White People Yell At Each Other

If you watched any of the Democrat debate as I did last night, you had a chance to see two old white people go back and forth, jockeying to see which of them could prove to the masses who was the most far-left-neo-maxi-zoom-dweebie. It was hard to tell. Ever since Sanders has made life difficult for the anointed one, Hillary Clinton, she’s been making a | Read More »

BREAKING RUMOR. Ted Cruz Trails Trump By Only Six In South Carolina. Marco Rubio Closing the Gap.

This is what it is. A rumor. But it is a rumor sufficiently well-placed that Bill Kristol feels comfortable running with it: Trump 32; Cruz 26; Rubio 20; Bush 10; Carson 7; Kasich 2. Keep in mind this is not an internal campaign poll but one that will be published in the next day or so. Compare and contrast with the trend lines. If true, | Read More »
