    Looks like the polls are finally converging on reality now that the voting is near. I think Trump is going to win Iowa and then run the table. Rubio will be lucky to make third in New Hampshire although the clown act Cruz and Beck put on in Iowa on Saturday may have cost Ted a second place finish in both states. Go Trump!

      It’s hard to predict Iowa cause it’s caucus voting. Cruz has a lot of volunteers in 2 dorm complex so it’s still a toss up but a little in Trump favor. We need to close Iowa and runt he table and make this historic. This will give Trump lots of momentum going into the general if we break records.

      Stringy – this whole Beck debacle was a major face plant.

      Coming so soon after the “New York values” face plant, hidden Wall Street loans face plant and the natural born citizen fiasco, I firmly believe Cruz fades to third place in Iowa. Remember, Trump still has 1 week & 1 debate to punch the daylights out of him.

      The following week will be a death spiral and Cruz finishes 5th in New Hampsire. That’s all folks !

      But the real end came this past weekend and we all witnessed it.

          Nothing to fear. It was Fiorino who talked about the videos 24/7 and is the one issue I can most identify with her candidacy.

          Frankly, I don’t recall Trump ever offering an opinion on them. I’m sure he must have at some point, but Trump is running a BIG issues campaign and nothing concerning abortion or these videos will Burt him.

          “Bush lied people died” still pisses me off. The left carpet bombed that meme. You couldn’t even read a sports forum with out that being shouted every third post. You brought up a bad memory.

          How about we start our own: “People died. Hillary lied”.

            These videos first came out early in the campaign. Trump seemed to make a misstep about whether he would fund Planned Parenthood, within two days he seemed to indicate that he knew about the videos and said what they did was disgusting and he only meant fund women’s health but not abortions. He quickly turned to something else to get out of the abortion briar patch. I’m sure he knows about this and has filed it all away.

            The left, both foreign (Al Gorezeera) and domestic, was good at blaming Bush for all of the deaths suffered in Iraq. Most deaths were caused by Islamist violence, not the US military or the Iraqi government. But facts don’t entirely matter in the court of international opinion.

            Linking Hillary to Benghazi is small potatoes, its only four deaths, while the total death toll in Libya is in the five figures. The arms shipped out of Libya, with State department approval, likely killed even more in Syria. Trump has pointed this out. He, unlike the rest of the Congressional GOP, was not complicit in this.

              Bush was also blamed for a weather event. Then he was blamed, after the fact, because the residents were too lazy and too stupid to get out when they were told to. Then he was blamed because people were raped in the superdome. Then he was blamed because a cowardly & corrupt Mayor & incompetent Govenor were incapable of handling what should have been a manageable aftermath of heavy rain.

              He may not be Rushmore material, but what was done to him was grotesque.

              And yes, the whole Sarah Palin caused the Gifford shooting was equally grotesque. But now we have a fighter. Finally.

                From the worldview of AGW, blaming politicians opposed to wrecking the economy (but not China and India’s that would be racist), for hurricanes was a logical response. On an actual note, the levees were a federal responsibility. But most weren’t interested in that, though some radical blacks claimed that Bush intentionally breached the levees so that Nawlins would be rebuilt with a white majority.

                Bush I and Bush II did massive damage to the R party with their wars, deficit spending, and lack of respect for the Constitution and our traditions. Blocking a third Bush is a good start, but defying the lese majeste of the post-9/11 aura should also be a part of building conservatism.

      Kasich is serving a good purpose for The Don: Keeping Rubio out of the top three in NH – after Rubio probably won’t have cracked the top three in Iowa (Trump, Cruz, Carson). Rubio hopes to make top three in SC (possible) and Nevada (possible), but I’m not sure why his being an ex-Mormon will help him that much in NV. If Rubio can’t even get into the top three in any of the first four states and can’t win his home state, what’s the rationale for his candidacy? He may have looked good on paper, but if voters clearly “just aren’t that into him”, it’ll be hard for the establishment to push him.

      Beware of that! Or at least, be aware that this is a clever psychological “instrument.” It sucks you in with this game-like premise, “Answer questions and meet your political love match.” Fun, huh. But the questions are actually an attitude survey. They are fishing for like-minded people and clustering them by their answers, then “matching” them to either statements by the candidates or the answers from a previous separate survey of known supporters. It’s another kind of data mining, not as despicable as what BB was doing.
      I tried it and it seems Rand Paul is my favorite. ??? There are probably several versions going around. The one I tried had several levels of depth to the opinions, e.g.
      Do you support intervening in Syria? yes no
      but underneath was a “more options” button. Expanding this would give something like:
      No, we should stay completely out of foreign wars.
      No, we should let Putin fight it out with ISIS.
      Yes, we need to help the friendly Arab nations
      Yes, we need to protect Israel.
      Other (write out)

      You can see by looking at the second level examples that they are loaded for particular political agendas. This is the “fine grain” which attempts to distinguish why people are pro or con by what political philosophy they follow. I think it’s well done for what it is, but in a way it’s like a push poll. The Other option doesn’t entirely save it. The Other answers will be used to refine the fine grain questions. Someone will see if they can be forced into the existing categories or a new one has to be made.

    The GOPe is apparently sending smoke signals to Trump that they could—maybe—be prepared to deal with him after all. Along with this not-very-discrete to-ing and fro-ing is a parallel effort to try to convince Trump to name a nice, safe establishment Republican who, after all, understands just how important it is to maintain the Uniparty’s goals and who can be trusted to nudge Trump in the “right” directions.

    Make no mistake, such a Vice President would be seen by the donor establishment and Uniparty establishment as more a “minder” than a genuine Vice President, someone who would keep Donald Trump in line. I don’t know who this person might be but you can bet he/she will be someone—probably from the east coast mega-cities—who is the absolute antithesis of the values Trump has awakened in his very effective stump speeches out in flyover country. If Trump chooses a liberal/progressive/uniparty loyalist as his running mate, this would be an ultimate betrayal of the very principles he’s campaigned on. If he did something like this, he could kiss his campaign goodbye because the grassroots would openly revolt against him and most likely stay home.

    Do I think Trump will actually do something like this? No, I don’t. If I did I’d have never even thought of supporting him. But we’ve seen this happen again and again in Republican politics and it’s not something we can automatically rule out. I think it’s time for Trump to tell us that he understands the conservative insurrection and intends to maintain it when he is in office.

    GO TRUMP!!

      I don’t care who Trump chooses. He’ll pick whoever helps him win the general election. That’s all a VP choice is for anyway. Trump is NOT going to have a co-presidency.

      Frankly, if he sees fit to pick a Jeb Bush I could care less. He’s not going to pick a buisnessman, it will be a politician. All politicians are insiders, and when Trump is president he too will be an insider. The ultimate insider.

      All that matters is Trump winning. VP, after the election, is, as was famously said, not worth a bucket of warm piss.

      It’s worth considering what happens after a President Trump is in office. The GOPe will not simply close up shop and go away, no indeed. They’ll still have enormous influence in congress where far too many members of both houses are bought and paid for and have been for years and years (just look at the solid support for Paul Ryan, for example). The GOPe will want it’s agenda enacted, Trump or no Trump, so it’s entirely possible that you’ll see the hireling congressional popinjays actively oppose everything Trump attempts to do. The members of his own party will treat him as a pariah.

      My point in writing this is that getting serious about trying to co-opt Trump is an obvious next step for the GOPe/Uniparty. As Sundance has said, important careers and trillions of dollars are at state here and the elites don’t much care who is in office . . . so long as they they observe the agenda. If the GOPe can convince Trump that he’s going to need them to get anything done, their agenda wins and our agenda—genuine top to bottom reform—goes out the window. As I’ve said, I don’t think Trump will bend that easily but what I’m talking about is realpolitik and I’m sure Rove and company are already advising the donor elites not to worry that they’ve got an inside track on how to control Trump. Just sayin’ . . .

        And if I was an elite donor I would believe Karl Rove because his splitter strategy has worked so very well. Not. Trump will go straight to the people via social media and the ever present cameras to plead his case. If they don’t work with him, or pull funny business they will face a backlash. At this point I would rather be on Trump’s good side than Karl Rove’s if I was a Congress creature.
