CNN’s Embarrassing Butt Covering on Carsongate
Last night after the debate, CNN continued their embarrassing butt-covering campaign regarding the Carsongate fiasco. The essential issue in this story is that the people who are attacking Ted Cruz on this (including Ben Carson) are intentionally conflating a series of tweets that were sent by CNN reporter Chris Moody, and what was said on air by CNN anchors Jake Tapper and Dana Bash while the caucuses | Read More »
Trump: Attending the Debate Is More Important than a Ground Game (VIDEO)
In the spin room last night, Donald Trump was stopped by CNN and asked, among other things, if he had learned from Iowa that he needed to have a strong ground game to succeed in New Hampshire. Trump’s answer indicated that he still rejects the notion that a ground game is important at all, even in small states when turnout is expected to be exceptionally | Read More »
Cruz Easily Won the New Hampshire GOP Debate
Sen. Ted Cruz won the New Hampshire GOP debate. Cruz managed to stay above the hand to hand combat between the desperate governors and Sen Marco Rubio and Donald Trump. He gave great answers to the ABC News moderators, some of whom spent the night fishing for sound bites that could be used to help the Democrats’ eventual nominee. Gov. Chris Christie went after Sen. | Read More »
Now The Marco Rubio Spin Wars Begin
The story of tonight’s New Hampshire debate will probably be about Marco Rubio – but we don’t know yet what that story will be, because the post-debate spin may be more important than what actually happened. Rubio had some very good and bad moments tonight. Unfortunately for him, the bad ones were early, they were ugly and they were preventable. Chris Christie attacked him with | Read More »
Marco Rubio Knocks It Out Of The Park on Abortion at ABC #GOPDebate
“On abortion, the Democrats are extremists.” Every Republican and conservative in America knows the media’s double standards when it comes to asking hard questions. It was especially evident this week in the difference between the Democrat and Republican debates. And it is the most evident in how the media deal with abortion. Sen. Rubio takes them apart over it. For a guy who had a | Read More »
Winners and Losers from Tonight’s ABC Debate
What a glum, drab debate. ABC clearly tried to make all the candidates look bad, and the bad blood between the candidates left over from Iowa meant that they just did not care about showing any level of solidarity against the media, as they often do. Christie successfully tore down Marco Rubio for the first hour of the debate, but made himself look like a | Read More »
Who Were The Grown-ups In The New Hampshire Debate?
The New Hampshire debate on ABC was an absolute ****show from start to finish. However, there were a few candidates who came across as ready to lead, and there were candidates who took this debate as merely a placeholder until South Carolina and beyond. The governors on the stage, however, looked like actual grown-ups tonight. Jeb Bush finally wins one against Donald Trump – and | Read More »
The Perfect Tweet To Describe The First Half of the ABC Debate
The first half of this debate has been an absolute trainwreck. Almost everyone on the stage (with the possible exceptions of Jeb Bush and Ted Cruz) has come off as more unlikeable than they were when they started. The Federalist’s Sean Davis I think has the best summary of the first half of the debate tonight and what is happening to the Republicans on stage. | Read More »
ABC Debate Open Thread!
Well, it’s almost time! The candidates are almost ready for the final debate before the New Hampshire primaries. Everyone still in the race except for Carly Fiorina will be there. Open thread! Chime in to the comments with your thoughts.
The Forces of Darkness Align Against Cruz
You can know Cruz by his enemies. And they are out in force this week. Dark forces, even. The left has a narrative and they’re pushing it ahead of tonight’s debate. Take this story, for example, from Mediaite: From the article: Things got a bit dicey for Ted Cruz yesterday, as he found himself in a heated exchange about his Canadian origins with a potential | Read More »

Women Aren’t Buying Hillary’s ‘Vote For Me Because I’m A Woman’ Bit … Not Even DEMOCRAT Women
At the Democrat debate this week, which I am positive you sanely didn’t watch, Hillary had a moment that may represent a bigger turning point in her campaign than some realize. It happened when Bernie Sanders accused her of representing the establishment. Hillary’s defense was pretty sad, as RedState’s Jay Caruso noted on Friday. Senator Sanders is the only person who I think would characterize | Read More »
GO TO HELL: Madeleine Albright Offers Dire Threat To Women Who Don’t Vote For Hillary
That’s definitely a novel approach to campaigning. Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright had an unusual campaign pitch on behalf of Hillary Clinton today, suggesting that if you’re a woman and you don’t vote for Hillary, you’re going to burn in hell. Former Secretary Albright at rally for @HillaryClinton — "there’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other" — Ed | Read More »
