Hillary Laughs as Questioner Discusses Strangling Fiorina

What’s good for the gander should be good for the goose. Remember when an audience member-slash-Democrat-plant at a Trump rally called President Obama a Muslim, and The Donald had to put up with a round of media criticism for not correcting the (alleged) error? The questioner described Muslims in the United States as a “problem” and asked “When can we get rid of them?” Suddenly, Trump was an anti-Muslim zealot and “wingnut” because he didn’t take some random guy to task and instead gave Read more […]

Is Carly Fiorina a Republican Insider?

It seems Carly Fiorina is at least an “outsider” that every Republican insider can love. I have been really happy with some of the stands Carly Fiorina has taken, especially when it comes to Planned Parenthood. But I also have some doubts. Consider this Bloomberg story: “Carly Fiorina, an Outsider Candidate Republican Insiders Can Love.” The story describes her outsider credentials but then changes directions. Yet Fiorina is no political neophyte, either. The daughter of an influential Read more […]

Hillary Clinton Won’t Face Up to Carly Fiorina’s Challenge to Watch the Planned Parenthood Videos

When asked if she watched the Planned Parenthood videos, Hillary Clinton evaded the issue. Carly Fiorina challenged Hillary Clinton to watch the Planned Parenthood videos. So far, Clinton has responded with evasion. Here she is in the “Situation Room” talking to Wolf Blitzer on CNN. He asks her, at one point, “First of all, have you seen those very, very controversial videos?” (Thanks to Breitbart.com for posting the video along with quotations of her non-answers.) [Editor’s note: Read more […]

Will CNN (and the RNC) Lock Out Carly Fiorina?

The rise of Carly Fiorina in the polls won’t get her invited to the debate unless CNN is made to acknowledge recent history. Two questions come to mind reading this Politico story about the next debate and whether Carly Firoina will qualify for it. First, is this CNN’s decision alone or did someone at the RNC approve it as well? Second, isn’t CNN’s method aimed at penalizing anyone who actually changes their poll numbers in a positive direction? Fiorina, the only female candidate in the Read more […]

Bush Donors Have Not Yet Given Up on Him

Bush donors are realizing that the race is not going as they had hoped, but they can’t really believe that they were so wrong. Here is a headline from The Hill that exudes confidence: “Bush donors not panicking — yet.” The former Florida governor had been labeled the GOP’s front-runner, but polls show he’s trailing Donald Trump by a wide margin. Even some supporters say he turned in a shaky performance at the first Republican debate earlier this month. The son of one former president Read more […]

Once Again ‘Trump Is Finished’ Means Trump Is Winning

Trump is winning despite doing and saying things that everyone claims should knock him out of the race. I am not a Trump fan, but his ascendency is directly the fault of the Republican establishment. They created this opportunity for him and it is somewhat pleasant to watch them predicting his downfall while he demonstrates theirs. Thus, the New York Daily News reported yesterday, “Donald Trump knocks Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker out of first place among Iowa Republicans: poll.” It reports Read more […]

The Republican Problem Goes Beyond Trump

Trump grabs most of the attention right now, but the Republican problem shows up in the popularity of other candidates as well. Mark Horne argued passionately that, rather than “damaging” the Republican Party, Trump is simply the damage that was caused by others. If he’s right, it is worth pointing out that Trump is not the only damage we are seeing. The Republican problem is demonstrated in other candidates. This was pointed out in an article in The Hill: “Outsiders take over the Read more […]

Carly Fiorina Points Out Planned Parenthood Hypocrisy

Planned Parenthood wants to save lives through murder, Carly Fiorina points out. Seriously? CNS News reports, “Fiorina: Planned Parenthood ‘Hypocritical’ for Using Ultrasound to Harvest Body Parts.” As I wrote before, Carly Fiorina reacted vociferously when the first video about harvesting intact organs was posted. Now she has followed up in an interview with Fox News. Carly Fiorina, a GOP presidential contender, told “Fox News Sunday” that Planned Parenthood lobbied against laws Read more […]
