PICK YOUR STATE & GET LOCAL

Watercooler 02/12/16 Open Thread: Selling your soul, San Bernardino, Reality Check, Best NH reaction.

As the work week comes to a close I can’t help but wonder what did we really learn from the past five days.  For me I learned the people of New Hampshire are down right kooky.  I get the whole we like Donald thing (I do not agree with it mind you but at least I understand how you were deceived into coming to that | Read More »

Trump Leads In South Carolina

Trump leads among those describing themselves as “very conservative,” “somewhat conservative,” “moderate” and “somewhat liberal.” John Kasich leads among the few South Carolina GOP voters who describe themselves as “very liberal.”

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 »

Is Jeb Bush Even Bothering To Try To Win South Carolina?

After New Hampshire, Jeb Bush declared he was going to fight hard to win South Carolina. Is that really the case?

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 »

Machete Wielding Muslim Terrorist In Ohio Was Known To FBI

Machete Wielding Muslim Terrorist In Ohio Was Known To FBI

Where is President Obama on this? That’s right. This was a Muslim terrorist named Mohamed Barry who went after people not somebody near a Planned Parenthood facility. There was no ...

Water Cooler 2/13/16 Open Thread – The ABCOTs, Donate to Hillarycare, A Viagra bill in KY

ABCOT: An acronym for “Anybody But Cruz Or Trump”, so that’s what I’ll start calling these voters. It fits, no? Kind of elitist. And the ABCOTs feel they have been waiting around long enough for something major to happen. Thanks to The Hill, we discover their patience is just about out. “Get ready for major Republican officials and large donors to begin a campaign to unite behind an alternative to presidential candidates | Read More »

Two New South Carolina Polls have a Surprising Result for Ben Carson

Well, we have been waiting for post-New Hampshire polling to come out for South Carolina, and now all of a sudden we have two. The first was conducted by the SC House GOP and the second by the Augusta Chronicle. They both show a pretty consistent picture of the race as it stands in South Carolina. There are relatively few surprises at the top. Both | Read More »

Cruz and Carson Talk Faith and Religious Liberty at Winter Jam

Sen. Ted Cruz was the opening act of a Christian rock concert packed with 14,000 evangelicals Friday night, as the Republican presidential candidates descended on Greenville, South Carolina ahead of Saturday’s CBS GOP debate. Philip Rucker, a national political correspondent for The Washington Post, reports that Winter Jam is a touring, four-hour show featuring born-again Christian rock and rap artists that performed at Greenville’s Bon | Read More »

The Reason Why Donald Trump Is Acting Like A P*ssy

Donald Trump made headlines by calling Ted Cruz a pussy. When you look at their actions, it is clear which of the two men deserves that insult. And it isn’t Cruz.

Chuck Todd Whines About Ted Cruz’s Office Space/Hillary Ad (VIDEO)

It has long been the conventional wisdom that Republicans and conservatives just don’t “get it” with respect to popular culture. It was actually a relatively fair critique as Republicans often railed about popular culture and attempting (incorrectly) to blame it on the downfall of society. It paid, electorally, to shun and mock mainstream pop culture rather than engage and embrace it. However, with a new | Read More »

Dear Cruz and Rubio: Don’t Make Me Turn This Car Around

You know what I have really gotten sick of? The ridiculous petty bickering between Cruz and Rubio as the two of them jockey to be the last guy standing to take on Trump. They are both operating from the unproven (and likely erroneous) assumption that they can duke it out forever without taking on Trump in the process, and that whenever the voters have sorted | Read More »

Here’s What To Expect From Tonight’s South Carolina Debate

Ridiculously Hilarious: MSNBC’s Mitchell Gets Bad Case of the Vapors Over Cruz Ad Mocking Hillary

Or should I say “Hilariously Ridiculous? You be the judge. I missed this earlier, but lucky for me The Right Scoop didn’t. This is absolutely hilarious. Andrea Mitchell was on MSNBC’s Morning Joe this morning and her reaction to the Cruz “Office Space” campaign ad is … well it’s priceless. I’ll be honest with you, I love his clip. I do. I’m a This Clip | Read More »

Donald Trump’s God Problem

Donald Trump has a problem with God. Or more specifically, he has a ‘God problem.’ At least when it comes to voters in South Carolina, for whom Christian faith is often a requirement in a public official. This is simply the reality of the state, not a judgment on religion. But Donald Trump is not credible when it comes to God. At least, not to | Read More »

BREAKING: Jim Gilmore To Suspend Campaign

One of the most charismatic men of the 2016 campaign, a victim of both circumstance and Donald Trump, Jim Gilmore was never given a chance. But, here is Jim Gilmore being awesome. However, The Hill is reporting that Gilmore is set to exit a stage he was never really on. “My campaign was intended to offer the gubernatorial experience, with the track record of a true | Read More »

John Kasich Lies About God [WATCH]

Politicians tell a lot of whoppers, but some are obviously more blatant or galling than others. In John Kasich’s case, he doesn’t think small and goes straight for the top, as part of a smear against his opponents and a lie about himself. Take a look: First, this article from the Wall Street Journal, hilariously titled ““Kasich: I’m a Conservative, But I Won’t Play the | Read More »

(VIDEO) New Ted Cruz Ad Hits Donald Trump For His Sleaze… And Doesn’t Even Mention His Personal Life

Pretty amazing. Ted Cruz has released a new ad attacking Trump over his “sleaze” and they didn’t mention the lengthy list of failed business ventures, the small vendors forced into insolvency because Trump declared bankruptcy, his serial adulteries and infidelities.
