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 »

The Forces of Darkness Align Against Cruz

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 »

How Big Were The Ratings For ABC’s New Hampshire Debate?

Big debate ratings and (in Iowa) big voter turnout have been the story of the GOP primary race so far, and despite being on a Saturday night, the New Hampshire debate on ABC was no exception: Bucking a trend of declining debate ratings, ABC’s Saturday night GOP face-off was the highest rated debate so far in 2016, according to Nielsen.

WOW: Another Disgustingly Ugly Smear Against Ted Cruz From The Forces of Darkness

If it isn’t clear by now, “forces of darkness” is a nickname for the MSM. And they are at it again. This smear against Ted Cruz is gross, meant to destroy, and, oh by the way, false. Like yesterday’s post, this one is about a liberal member of the press smearing Cruz with a deliberately misleading characterization: If you don’t know who John Harwood is, | Read More »

The Most Awkard Thing Ever: This John Kasich Clip Will Make You Cringe Until You Die

Gov. John Kasich was on “Fox News Sunday” this morning, and he was really happy about it. So happy, in fact, that he didn’t want to leave. … Ever. And he almost didn’t. Warning: this video will forever remove your ability to even: Dude. I died on my insides. I am dead. I am a dead person who died watching a clip of John Kasich. | Read More »

Will Middle Class Establishment GOP Women Decide New Hampshire primary

New Hampshire primary voters are notorious for making up their minds who they are going to vote for late — often just days or hours before their ballot is cast. In an interesting article at WBUR, Boston’s NPR news station, Frank Perullo and Michael McLaughlin of The Novus Group, tell us that “younger, middle and upper-middle class, establishment GOP women may swing this election.”

Real Talk On The GOP Debate And How The Media Still Sucks

Last night was the last debate before the New Hampshire primary. The media, looking for their narrative, found one. Marco Rubio had a bad moment with Chris Christie and now they are going to write the stories on how Rubio, who had surged into second place in NH primary polls, may now finish in third, fourth or maybe even fifth place. It’s silly season and | Read More »

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 »

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 »

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.

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 »
