New York Daily News

"Ben Carson admitted Friday that he lied about earning a prestigious scholarship to West Point while controversy over the validity of his troubled kid-to-renowned doctor narrative reached a crescendo."

Watch out for the wheels coming off. Next?

I'm thinking that about Marco Rubio as well. This may end up with it after all. If so, he'll be just like John McCain and Mitt Romney. The damage of the primary is going to cripple him in the general.

bush may end up with ....

Am hearing a lot of the old guard talking heads from the Republican Party saying on the political talk shows that the party is headed for disaster...some actually predicting the demise of the party.

46084. judithathome - 11/6/2015 9:14:28 PM

I think they need to split up the current party and form two distinct ones: Republican Old Guard and Batshit Crazy Loon Republican parties.

Of course, that might be difficult as lines seem to be blurring these days...

The wheels ARE coming off but not the donations...rather than own up to his "faux pas", he is attacking the media and has garnered over three million in donations as a result.

Now he's attacking the media...always a money-maker for Republicans...and claiming there has never been this level of scrutiny by them before...I guess he slept through the Clinton years and Obama's campaign...Whitewater, Gennifer Flowers, born in Kenya, Rev. Jeremiah Wright anyone?

46086. judithathome - 11/9/2015 9:00:35 PM

Not to mention the Swift Boaters...eyeroll.

46087. judithathome - 11/11/2015 10:35:40 PM

So...no one watched the debate?

46088. arkymalarky - 11/12/2015 1:44:52 AM

Yeah we watched it.

Hillary Clinton has really come into her own. The sace she created between herself and her husband by working for Obama's administration I think helped. But she's really doing great.

So long, Bobby...We hardly knew ye...

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal says he is dropping out of 2016 race for president, ending a campaign that failed to gain much support among Republicans. Jindal tells Fox News, "This is not my time."

And it never will be...

46092. judithathome - 11/18/2015 7:58:49 PM

Too bad the people of Louisiana didn't believe that when they voted him in to ruin their state...

46093. iiibbb - 11/18/2015 8:17:27 PM

Obama is the best president of my lifetime. Too bad he coincides with the worst government in general.

This Is Very Scary If Dr. Ben Remains An Option At The Top Of The Polls

And I heard this morning that his solution to the Palestinian situation in Israel was to move them all down into Egypt!

People complaining about how Obama is reacting to terrorism need to remember how he behaved the night they killed bin Laden.

This is a great article by someone who knows his way around both the subject and the language...Kareem Abul-Jabbar on Donald Trump and ISIS

The terrorist campaign against American ideals is winning. Fear is rampant. Gun sales are soaring. Hate crimes are increasing. Bearded hipsters are being mistaken for Muslims. And 83 percent of voters believe a large-scale terrorist attack is likely here in the near future. Some Americans are now so afraid that they are willing to trade in the sacred beliefs that define America for some vague promises of security from the very people who are spreading the terror. ďGo ahead and burn the Constitution ó just donít hurt me at the mall.Ē Thatís how effective this terrorism is.

Iím not talking about ISIS. Iím talking about Donald Trump.

This is not hyperbole. Not a metaphor. Webster defines terrorism as ďthe use of violent acts to frighten the people in an area as a way of trying to achieve a political goal; the systematic use of terror especially as a means of coercion.Ē

At this point, Jeb's views are way closer to those of Hillary than they are to most of the republican field. It could never happen but i'ts kind of fun to imagine Jeb jumping ship and becoming Hillary's running mate.

Clinton/Bush

I mean, not really cuz Jeb sucks but there is a perverse part of my brain that is amused by the idea. It would sure confirm the worst fears of anti-establishment republicans
