Trump ‘More Serious’ Than Ever; Delaying Signing NBC Renewal

Donald Trump says he is “more serious” than he’s ever been before about running for president. In recent days, Trump said, he has hired staffers in key primary states, retained an election attorney and delayed signing on for another season as host of NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice” because of his political projects. “Everybody feels I’m doing […]

The Weekly Standard paints Jeb Bush as the candidate of professional Republicans, but not of voting public. The Washington Post recently christened Jeb Bush the frontrunner, and for good reason. He is pulling in the top Republican talent — the donors, consultants, and various policy advisors necessary to fund and run a top-notch campaign. Yet, […]

Jeb Bush may be the mainstream candidate, but Scott Walker is establishing himself as the choice of the further-right. One, he’s consistently placing in the top tier of GOP candidates in most states. Two, he is doing much better with conservative GOP voters than with moderate ones. And three, he is doing better than anyone […]

I believe it’s called preparation. Mrs. Clinton, who is all but assured to seek the Democratic presidential nomination for a second time, has hired the firm New Partners, an outfit with a history of doing deep research projects, to handle at least some portion of the work, known in the political world as “self-opposition research.” She […]

It behooves us once again to see what is the state of Schrödinger’s favorite candidate for 2016, Senator Rand Paul. Open the Box! It was only last week that the Washington Post Fact Checker gave him three of the much-coveted Pinocchios for his twice-stated misstatement that he has a biology degree awarded from Baylor University. His office tried to […]

Jeb To Run As War Hawk

Jeb Bush is giving a foreign policy speech today and, according to advance information, is positioning himself as a hawk. Just what we need, another Bush in the White House who wants war. “I have doubts whether this administration believes American power is such a force. Under this administration, we are inconsistent and indecisive. We […]

The War On Jeb

Alex Isenstadt at Politico: Rand Paul is attacking him as a hypocrite on marijuana who’s indistinguishable from Hillary Clinton. Ted Cruz is questioning whether Bush’s stands on education and immigration will fly with primary voters. Conservative outside groups are going after him, with one airing a TV ad declaring, “We do not want dynasties in […]

The Ohio governor is “stepping up preparations” reports Political Wire, via the Cleveland Plain Dealer. “Ed Gillespie, a former Republican National Committee chairman, met recently with Team Kasich… One Republican said a separate dinner meeting included former U.S. Sen. John E. Sununu of New Hampshire, the first primary state. Richard Allen, a senior fellow at […]

Like Barack Obama, everything Hillary Clinton does, according to detractors, is wrong. She is wrong to announce and wrong not to announce. Many of those close to her believe that the former secretary of state can wait as long as she wants and is best served by delaying her entry in the 2016 race. At […]

It’s still unclear why Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker didn’t complete his degree at Marquette. In 1990, that news stunned his friends at Marquette University. Walker, the campus’s suit-wearing, Reagan-loving politico — who enjoyed the place so much that he had run for student body president — had left without graduating. To most of the Class […]
