Jeb Bush and John Kasich Have Little To Show After Spending Millions In New Hampshire… (Poll pdf Included)

Battle of The Cashmere Sweaters ! 

Alternate headline: “Game of Drones” – Doug Ross writes a good article highlighting the latest polls in Iowa and New Hampshire (full pdf below).  Given the scope of the spending by Jeb Bush and John Kasich, it does appear a particular level of futility is evident.

New Hampshire poll Jeb and John

Ohio Governor John Kasich also told reporters recently about Jeb’s team doing opposition research and putting dirt diggers into the Ohio State House to find usable material.

(Via CNN) Opposition researchers typically work in the relative shade of politics. But Ohio Gov. John Kasich made the team for Jeb Bush’s super PAC the focus of his campaign stops on Friday after a pair of Right to Rise PAC staffers were discovered digging through his old congressional papers in an Ohio library. (more)

All of this is rather humorous considering the egos that run rampant amid the Bush family of political operatives.  Everyone keeps telling Jebbie not to worry, they’ve got this; in the interim a massive chunk of the electorate can’t stand the guy.

If you stand back from it, it can be quite humorous to watch.

Speaking of humor.  You might enjoy watching this segment of a presentation given by Chris Matthews where he explains, his ideas of, the attraction of Donald Trump.

It is just as funny to watch the uppity elites (a description not based on money) try to reconcile why Donald Trump has such massive support.

In this video limo-liberal Chris Matthews tries his best to explain to a room full of limo-liberals (again, that description has nothing to do with money).

    He must have thought he was talking about democrats for whom a rap sheet is a resume.

        Yeah – and even as Chrissy acts like he’s the one to explain it to this room full of people who lift their skirts when we walk by – Chrissy repeatedly describes normal people with dripping superiority – “…working class people with dirty faces…..” and other phrases. He really shouldn’t try to act as my spokesman.

        My husband came home from work very dirty, hands and face, for 35 years before he was able to retire from diesel work and start working at Home Depot in tools…then he came home with a clean face.

        But guess what???? During all those years of him working with heavy tools under and in and on top of dirty trucks no one EVER referred to him as a “father with a dirty face”.

        EVER!

        You need to shut your face, Chrissy, or someone like me will shut it for you.

        You don’t speak for me. Never have. Never will.

          both of my grown sons worked during high school and summers, and both graduated from college successfully…..but before they started any Career Job, I encouraged them both to go to work at HOME DEPOT, to learn about retail, customer service, and how to get along with real people who work for a living, mostly without the advantage of college educations. Why did I do this, because I spent a lifetime as a sales oriented CEO of many small companies and learned that being boss does not give privilege, it gives responsibility…and to learn how to put your personal values into everything you do despite not getting paid much for it is how you learn those truths. I call it a Master’s Degree in Reality. They are getting the picture, and both have made enough to make extremely large payments on their college loans…in less than two years working at the 11 dollar and hour wage norm….both are multilingual, have learned to run fork lifts and front loaders, and to work throughout a multishift period when inventory or materials needed managing prior to opening for retail business. Anyone that does NOT understand that America RUNS on the workers, not the bosses, is contributing to the reason that our JOBS have been sent overseas because OUR people won’t work if they have to get dirty or stop using their cell phones while at work.

            My DH’s boss at the MN Home Depot loved her “old guys” crew — farmers perhaps working part time or men like my hubby who had retired from heavier work. She called them her old farts crew – and loved ’em to death. She said when they were on the job she never had to worry about the shift being covered, the paperwork being correct, the inventory pulled down, the customers cared for….because they all knew and did exactly what you describe.

      But isn’t it funny that he was the one with tingles running up his leg over Zero…..so how does he reconcile his votes for zero, his misjudgment of zero, and obvious love for the man with this betrayal of the working class Americans he mentions. It is not just the betrayal….it is the outrage over the betrayal and he has no idea how strong it really is.

      And with the lack of judgment he has displayed with his love of zero, his endorsement of Marco Rubio is ludicrous and carries absolutely no impact. Go away, Chris.

    Everything Chrissy said in his effort to account for Trump’s impact is what I have thought for decades–without having to think about it and without being paid for thinking it.

    Don’t be impressed because he finally said what is so. It’s perhaps an indicator of some level of situational awareness on his part, trying to preserve what remains of his career but that would be all. So he can make more money simply putting into words what most of us live by instinctively (without being paid to do it).

    I spit in his general direction.

      It is not possible for Kasich to win the nomination even if he were discovered to be the reincarnation of Eisenhower/Patton/Reagan and Maggie Thatcher.

      He may be as likable as all get out but the GOPe needs to be dismantled, trampled into the dust, chased back to their hidey-hole and then have the hidey-hole blown up so as to cover whatever main remain of their ashes.

      Even if Kasich “won” the nomination (which he can’t) there is no way on earth that he is qualified to do what must be done next in order to take our country back from the status quo.

The only reason he won governor is he is about as close as you can get to being a liberal, this is a state who elected metzenbaum and Glenn for senators for years. Listen to him in the debates he sounds like he should be the democratic debates. The choice of Strickland vs kasich was who would be the least bad. And for people who think he has done a good job compared to how bad things have been here not a high bar. Most good jobs gone schools suck and he’s involved in scandal rigging charter school data too

    Trump lost some momentum late in Sept. Not surprising his poll numbers took a bit of a hit.

    Having said that, his tax plan was recent and my totally amateur opinion is that will help him regain some of it back.

    A bit surprised by Fiorina strong boost, but that may be from debate. Will be interesting to see if she can maintain that.

      In addition to Trump’s quite serious tax plan, there is also the possibility of support from the Teamsters and Trump’s promise to send back all migrants from Syria. Every conflagration between Muslim Arabs and native Europeans, every rape or murder by Muslims in Europe will remind Americans how much we don’t want any more Muslims from the Middle East – just as every violent crime by illegals in the US continually reminds people that Trump is right. I really can’t see Trump’s numbers falling much because he’s on the right side of the issues.

    What a moron Chris Mathews is saying “Trump is the monkey who typed Merry Christmas”, Chris’ blind ideology disallows any rational analysis of Trump’s true intellect and the fact that Trump’s sincerity, passion, wit and belief in America is the real force behind Trump.

    In Chris Mathews I just watched a man nearly broken by the fact that he can’t square the reality before his eyes with his own world view. This guy is really shaken.

    And holy days what has Mathews come to when he ends his speech with a Reagan quote? I see a sabbatical in Mathews near future.

    Carly Fiorina has emerged as the Republican candidate of the moment in conservative fundraising circles, drawing the notice of the billionaire Koch brothers and other wealthy donors who could instantly remake her shoestring presidential campaign.

    She has now moved to the short list of candidates the Kochs may support with their reported $1 billion war chest, the sources said. Florida Senator Marco Rubio is among those on the coveted list, the sources said.

  21. Chris has Trump WRONG. Trump didn’t just target Americans about illegal aliens as a political move. Trump HIMSELF feels that way. Trump himself doesn’t like living in a country where laws are not enforced and criminals are committing crimes who are not in the country illegally. My GOD, who in their right minds would want THAT? Trump truly and sincerely feels that way himself and THAT is why he resonates with us. Chris actually believes that we would jump up like lap dogs if an insincere candidate screamed illegal immigration just for the sake of political speak?

    Chris has a very paranoid and negative and jealous opinion of Trump so he reads into Trump what isn’t there. He’s basically calling Trump a con man. But the main reason Trump resonates with us is that we see and he sees that America on the path of destruction. I especially do not agree that we are all “white working class” who are angry because we have nothing in our life but this country. Yes, SOME perhaps. But there are many of us that simply fear for USA falling further down the drain. And a great many of us just plain and simple don’t like LIES. Most of us have a realization that if we as a country continue on this path we are just not going to make it as a country. $19 trillion dollars in debt, the only “economic plan” we ever see is creating more wars over oil, toppling foreign governments, stealing their wealth and resources, and putting into place “their people” who end up screwing us and keeping us in perpetual wars. Whilst foreign people pour into our borders who won’t assimilate and have zero respect for our laws. Immigrants who are in USA legally are the most adamant against illegal aliens.

    In my opinion Chris Matthews is only recognizing ONE of the factions of the many facets of Trump supporters. So okay, give him a pat on the back for that obvious observation. But he has yet to figure out the rest of us in the mix of Trump supporters. Many of us are college educated, have a high income, do not have to work, and are actually cultured, unlike Matthews. Some of us just don’t like LAWLESSNESS. And some of us simply don’t like Obama and the extreme left and anti-american direction he steered the country. And many of us are immigrants as well. And every election he stands up and bags on white working class, with his nose in the air as if he is somehow better. I notice this every time Iowa and the South who are earlier states in the campaign comes around. It’s as if Chris gets stuck on stupid and paints the entire electorate as such. When Huckabee ran in 2008 race I will never forget that loudmouth did the same thing with Huckabee, having a farmer on his show from Iowa, who was specifically chosen to represent “Huckabee supporters,” which Matthews described in the same way. The farmer was wearing coveralls because he had just come from plowing his fields, which Matthews and his “other guests” quickly pointed out and spent the entire time snickering and mocking the poor man. Doubling down after the man left the set. I will NEVER forget that.

    BTW Chris calls Trump crass? As far as I remember Chris has always been crass his entire career and showed his crassness this entire diatribe. Trump has more elegance and class in his middle finger than Chris will ever have. And the water in my toilet from our mountain in the Italian alps is cleaner than his finest bottled water he is so smug about. He wouldn’t fit in anywhere in cultured society. I’d call him a dirty PIG but I have too much respect for the noble animal kingdom. So I guess I will just call him an uncouth SLOB.

    Chris Matthews in simple terms: whadda dick.

  26. I am white, and working class. What I don’t think they get is that many of us prefer to work. I prefer being outside than in, and I have done both. Many of us prefer work boots and a tool belt to shiny shoes and a necktie. I prefer to get up before the sun, and go home tired from using my body. I enjoy being able to, at the end of the day, look at and see what I have helped to create. I enjoy the hot shower to wash off the dirt and sweat of my efforts. I enjoy the people outside as well, an honest and hearty group.
    It is not an inferior position to others, the educated. It is not a lowly place, to be sneered at, mocked or ridiculed. It gives me what I desire, a sense of accomplishment and of well being. Actual enjoyment. It is a choice that we have made.
    What I don’t enjoy, is having the deck stacked against me time and time again. Illegal aliens have taken over the construction out here in California, and elsewhere. And the rules and laws I am obligated/forced to follow, do not apply to them. Hard to compete against.
    My son, 16, was broadsided by a pick up truck that ran a red light earlier this year. Although he is ok, I now have a $24,000 hospital bill, that my insurance may or may not cover. Buying him another car, I only had liability, what I could afford. Yes the driver was an illegal, no insurance of course. He got out of the truck, yelled something in Spanish and took off running.
    So yes, I can say the white working class is a bit miffed, I’m sure my story is similar to many. We enjoy the fruits of our labor, yet most of it is taken back. Insurance, high medical, taxes, workmans comp, SDI, FICA, etc. for me. Yet not so for all of our invited southern invaders. Not so for the elites as well. They prosper off of us, while they seek to destroy us.
