        I did too Winky, and it is a very gratifying sign. I have volunteered with a large Golden Retriever rescue group for over ten years and have observed that the die hard Democrat supporters in our group were usually older women, most of whom came out of teaching or education field in some capacity. Since our rescue is an all volunteer organization, obviously many of our members are retired or semi-retired white women and most do not have a strong man in their lives. ( Interestingly, we have very few black volunteers or adopters, and I guess the Golden Retriever is simply not their breed choice.) These women were obsessed with Obama before his election, asking if they could register new voters at our adoption events (absolutely not!) and they all learned not to discuss politics with me. Then before any candidate had even announced this time, two of the officers in the group (both older married women) blurted out that they were all in for Hillary. It is beyond my comprehension that any thinking person could support someone with H Clinton’s track record but I’m guessing they still do. I’m sure they find it annoying to see the Trump bumper stickers on my car, but they better get used to it.

    MSM now touting how far ahead Trump is. With hat tip to Sundance, why would Wall Sreet and C of C let Hillary stay in and keep Biden out? The answer has to be that TPP will be passed by 2016 lame duck Congress. In fact, Paul Ryan just agreed today not to pass comprehensive immigration while Obama is president. Does TPP have mandatory immigration quotas? If it does why do we need immigration reform if immigration quotas will be mandatory.

    • grieving the loss of a very close loved one, in this case a child, can take 1-5 years. the most difficult time is around the 5th-8th month and especially the first holidays without them. Biden just buried his beloved son in JUNE, then we saw Biden broken just last month in September on Stephen Colbert show still shaken, he has also publicly stated he was broken and not have the spirit to run. now he publicly states that also being the reason he is not running.
      i lost a mother, a brother, a best friend, and i buried a boyfriend, and i can assure you that just normal grieving process takes at least one year. it has only been 4.5 months for
      Biden. and this on top of his wife and daughter dying years ago. my boyfriend took me 5 years to complete my grieving process even though i had a new boyfriend during that time.

      it is utter nonsense to think Biden is lying about this e.g., that “they are preventing him from running.” death of a child kicks your ass, i am quite sure it is much harder than burying a boyfriend. heck, my beloved cat passed away last year and even that took me several months to get over.

        I think if Biden had run it would have been largely because of his son… and now that he’s decided NOT to run, it’s also largely because of his son. So yep, either way I can 100% understand.

        I don’t like Biden on several levels but I’m also respectful of the fact that he worked hard to be a family man after the death of his wife and daughter. He made a point of riding the train from DC to Baltimore every day so that “home” could stay home. His speech sure sounded like a candidate’s speech so obviously that’s why it was written. I think you’re right. He looked at the whole thing today and said “no” . . .

        Under normal circumstances, I would agree with you. I, too, went through a series of deaths in a year and a half: my best friend, my mother, my sister, an adopted mother, a mentor and two beloved pets. Grief is crippling at times. However, this is a liberal we are talking about. They will use anything–ANYTHING–to move their agenda along. I don’t doubt the family’s grief; I do doubt the motives of that circumstance for political posturing.

        End of WW II, 1945, my Mom’s in far western Germany trying to make it back to the family farm in Thuringia. Her mother and two sisters were well behind Russian lines and she couldn’t be sure if they were even alive. Her father was a POW though she didn’t know it, nor where he was or even if he were alive, he was last known to be on the northern Russian front, and she has to cross through active allied and Russian lines to even start to look. She made it to the farm found her Mom and both sisters and, over the next two years, managed to smuggle them into what was the British Zone. Managed to find her father too – a Brit POW.
        Not looking for applause but I’m saying that if you have a drive then you can push through, pour families have been military families for a very long time and we’re raised to (lord how I hate this term) ‘soldier through’ whatever. Biden’s been a pro-pol for decades and I have a hard time believing he couldn’t channel his grief/anger/whatever into a presidential bid. He’s not a regular person, he’s the survivor of years of fighting his way to the top, through a sea of other pols all wanting to get where he’s at, his family bleeds politics. I believe he was told to stand down and, if he’s a good pol, he won’t get POTUS but he’ll get some other smaller bone to chew on.

      I’m figurin’ they have to have some ‘organized’ way of tilting the voting (OK, cheap labor too) balance in a ‘legal’ way. Why not codify the process of de-Europeanizing the US so that the screws will have the thin veil of law to hide behind? You get the framework passed, hammer that camel through the eye of a needle, and then you can fine-tune the little definitions by having the interested bureaucrats do it as needed? Confused? See the IRS with the Federal Tax laws and the ATF with Federal gun laws.
      Many cultural revisionists for nearly a century have been bemoaning the US as an evolution of European culture, something that like European culture has to be stamped out and rebuilt in the shadow of all of those cultures that have achieved little except eating off of our plates. What better way to salve their embarrassment than by chopping off and eating the hand that’s been feeding them? Fill the democratic US, democracy – one of those European cultural things – with some of that ageless despotism that’s been the mainstay of Latin America and the Mideast for centuries. Democracy! Democracy? We don’ need no steeeenken’ democracy we got…oh hell, I don’o but we got sumthin…Pass me another USAID taco, Achmed…”

          You really think so? You think that cats are herdalble too? Since when has Congress seen the light and moved towards it in the last 20 years? The only way Congress will get on the train is if it’s labeled ‘the gravy train’. Even RR had to heavily bribe the RATS and the Republicans to get common sensical legislation passed. Only way I can see Congress and Trump working together is if the voting public votes the carp out and stays tuned-in long enough to ensure those hey put in keep doing what they were voted in to do.

        Well, they haven’t been “trumped” yet.

        Donald Trump is one of the world’s premier negotiators. The Congress has never seen a president like this man.

        In the business world, Trump routinely gets his mega-projects built, despite all the players working at their own agendas–and counter to his:
        – zoning commissions;
        – public works administrators;
        – public utilities administrators;
        – sanitation commissions;
        – “environmental impact” weirdos;
        – union bosses;
        – politicians;
        – the press,
        – and the myriad of others all working at cross-purposes.

        Overseas, there are also foreign governments to deal with. Investors. Tenants. Etc, etc, etc.

        Donald Trump finds a way to get them on the same page, and that page is HIS page. Somehow, he does it. And he makes a fortune bringing them all together at HIS pace.

        I think he won’t have much trouble getting Congress on board. Compared to Trump, they’re amateurs.

          DC has more plots, subplots, self-interests and chicanery going on inside of it than Agatha Christie could imagine; Trump may be able to surf it without drowning but he’s gonna get wet, real wet.

            It seems that getting re-elected is one of their top priorities. Trump can offer to help them campaign if they support his agenda. And if they don’t go along with his leadership, he can campaign alongside their new primary opponent. And I am sure Trump knows how to grease the skids to make it easy for them to agree to his plans.

              It’s their ONLY priority – you have to look at the $10-$20 million it takes to run for a Senate seat to see how important that seat is to those who buy the sitter. There’s a lot of things Trump could do to nail non-starters but look at how many he’d have to deal with in the midterms while also trying to reign in the sitting crop of mustangs. In the end it’s the people’s responsibility and if they don’t keep tabs on and appropriately discipline their wayward Congressional children they are the ones to blame.

          I don’t see LBJ and Trump in the same boat. LBJ was an old fashioned twisty pol with decades of insider exposure to Congress. Trump’s gonna be dealing with cash and power flows from US and international players who’ve had their hooks into Congress for decades. That will be one Trump fighting beaucoup players of equal to greater wealth/power, and he’ll be trying to assemble his team and beta test it while maintaining his balance. There are herds of professional bureaucts who’re unherdable and will use passive resistance to resist any moves by his appointees – I’ve seen that one before.
          I hope y’all are right but Trump wouldn’t be the first POTUS to run headlong into the professional spider web that’s DC and he’s not a professional pol with experience in the world’s largest spider web.

          The only way to grant amnesty is via a bill (passed by both houses and signed by POTUS) that modifies certain statutes. Amnesty cannot be done via implication derived from a different provision.

          In other words, rights are NOT granted by inference; rather there must be a direct grant of those rights via statute. People ASSUMING that certain things also mean a specific unspecified thing, however, will behave as if such right has been granted UNTIL someone challenges the authority upon which the right is allegedly predicated. Birthright citizenship for illegals is a good example of a right that has never been granted by statute yet persists in being treated as valid law.

      What pisses me off is that Andrew Breitbart might not have worked himself to death to save this country in Nov. 2010 if he knew the GOP E had no intention of listening to any of the people we gave them. After Nov. 2008 there were almost no Republicans left in the House and deservedly so. It turns out the GOP E liked it that way. They’ve bitched and complained every day since Nov. 2010 about the people we gave them. Retribution must be paid for the untimely death of Andrew. If Trump wins I’ll consider the account paid.

              Dobbs can say anything he wants now. The Left is pushing Carson big time on MSNBC. Mika and Joe “are so impressed” with him. Carson has always been a plant from the beginning, Axelrod’s man, (Lenin-control both sides and Axelrod’s expertise is getting black guys nominated and/or elected, this was set up very early on)

              Carson is so obvious I can’t understand how others can’t see it. Mychal Massie, Kane and Evans, J Christian Adams and others are on to him(they don’t cal him a plant, just have his words and actions as evidence of leftism) while Beck is now gaga over a guy he said was finished 8 months ago because of his crazy statement about going into prison coming out gay. That would have finished him with LGBT crowd if he was white and not part of Axelrod’s strategy. Axelrod is not gone by the way, he is in charge of the left’s 2016 campaign.

              So get ready for a Carson nomination, if he wins the general or not, doesn’t matter, he’s on their side–‘you get the one you get the other.’

    Just terrific.

      This kind of story just confirms that the splitter candidates are the hirelings instead of the other way around. Someone that YOU are paying doesn’t scream at you especially in public. Only a co-worker or your boss screams at you and only when they have the authority unless they want a fist in the face or a cussing. What a sorry state of affairs.

      The audio problems are likely due to the simple fact that You Tube is owned by Google, which is run by Obama-loving, Hillary-adoring, Chicom-accomodating billionaire twits. Audio of rallies not shown on You Tube are generally fine.

        Not to mention the “artist” whose song is being played before and after the speech don’t want to have their songs associated with Trump’s campaign. Losers!!!!!! They wouldn’t be famous if it wasn’t for the public wanting to hear their music!! Will never understand those “artist” types. Retire please and go be the grandfathers that you are!

    I caught Bill Bennett on Hannity’s show tonight, and what an arrogant and repulsive old goat he is! He was literally ranting about how profoundly he despised Donald Trump and wanted to drone off a list of Trump’s flips and flops but Hannity wisely cut him off. So then Bennett switched to his man crush on Paul Ryan, literally calling him a young Ronald Reagan … oh yes he did .. Bennett is probably the definition of the GOPe and proud of it. He grudgingly said that if Trump ended up being the GOP candidate, he would vote for him “because I can’t vote for Hillary.” And PS ..Breitbart’s Big Government blog tonight says Ryan flat out lied to the conservative caucus at their 4:00 meeting today which has them in a general dither. Sundance will have a full report on this tomorrow I’m sure.

      Yes it is fascinating to watch people who we liked or thought were ok, just fall apart before our eyes and reveal that they are nothing more than GOPe shills.

      What made me laugh though was when Bennett said Trump is not a principled conservative, implying that Jebby and Rubio is ! I mean seriously ? 😀 😀

      Also he downplayed Ryan’s issues like illegal immigration / amnesty and TPP, as if they were minor things?? Any principled conservative would see those two things as what is primarily responsible for destroying the country, and yet Bennett just skipped over them as if they were some minor thing ? The mask slips…

      This whole process is so enlightening, people are being exposed for what they are.

    I am sorry that I can’t recall the name of the man who introduced Donald last night. He had the title DR, but I didn’t get his name. Anyway, he gave the most enthusiastic and patriotic introduction that I’ve seen so far. His admiration for Trump was obvious in his words and his expression. It was wonderful! I was almost tearing up listening to him and that was before The Donald even came out to the stage.

    It is a good poll from a great polling company. Among historical “caucus goers” in Iowa I’m sure Carson is slightly ahead or leading Trump. These are the good people that voted for Santorum, Huckabee, Bauer, and Robertson.

    But, if the nationwide Trumpentum is real, this poll will greatly underestimate the passion of the Trump voter in Iowa who may very well be willing to caucus for once.

    This will feed the anti Trump narrative for a couple of days on Fox and CNN and give new life to Karl Rove…. And the anti Trump SuperPACs will claim that the Club For Growth negative ads worked.

    Oh well….. Just another day on the Trump Train..

        I guess the poll is accurate. I just didn’t want to believe it. After the excitement, just yesterday, of Trump going for 100 days at the top of every poll, to see him drop to second is sort of a jolt. It hurts.

        I expect there will be many more twists and turns on the Trump Train throughout the coming months, so I will just have to learn to hang on tighter. I am so glad I can come to this site where I know that others are sharing that train ride. Thanks for being here.

          Since 1976, the only candidates who won the Iowa primary and then became President were Bush (2000) and Obama (2008 and 2012, although Obama really didn’t have any competition in 2012, did he?). Iowa is a beauty contest.

            There has been rumours that Ben Carson is doing very well in IOWA, this poll confirms that. However, I also understand that Trumps IOWA operation is rather good, so I would be reasonably confident that IOWA will fall into the Trump column when required.

            I think the huge rallies like last night in IOWA are an indication of where the momentum is though. It is also inevitable that some state polls will swing between the top 2 during the campaign and especially in IOWA. I think Santorum actually won this state by a small amount.

            Also when you see something like this (assuming it is accurate) this early, then it will highlight something that needs to be dealt with. i.e. Trump can reinforce his IOWA operation and perhaps do an extra rally etc. Point is it can flag up something that needs more attention, and the earlier the better.

            All good people 😀

      Iowa is conservative christian in small town setting. The way i see it, trump does the same big rally everywhere but Iowa should be different. Carson on the other hand visit local stores, coffee house, walk the neighborhood, go to church with the community and be feature in the local newspaper. Carson have a more friendly christian approach.

      Obvious Trump will have a hard time doing those things because he will be mobbed everywhere he goes. Trump fighting grounds will be Iowa(vs Carson), Ohio(vs Kasich), and Florida(vs JEB/Rubio). If you read the interview from JEB superpac, they are clearly strategizing to win FL and saying the early primary does not matter.

      I would hate to see Trump lose Iowa cause he got the best ground game there.
