Marco Rubio’s canned and thrice (at least) repeated response to Chris Christie’s attacks on his “25 second speech” will likely damage the Florida senator’s chances in New Hampshire and beyond. Plus, ABC does a few things differently; Carly Fiorina was barred at the door, but will it end up helping her?; Get the ring ready, the establishment appears ready to propose; Cruz quietly makes his points, shores up conservative support; Trump doesn’t understand eminent domain but loves the police, and, In two more days, we’ll know.
Going into the ABC Saturday night "dinner date debate" the FedUp PAC poll showed Donald Trump leading with 49%, while Senator Ted Cruz had 37% backing. Marco Rubio, who seems to be emerging as the choice of the GOP establishment, had only 14% and is counting on a strong debate performance to boost the flagging hopes of the GOP establishment.
With Senator Paul’s departure from the Presidential contest, Ted Cruz is the only candidate running for President who would advance the causes that have been so ably championed by Rand Paul. To protect your civil liberties, to roll back special interests and the Washington cartel, to reign in the Fed, and to advance criminal justice reform, we urge Rand Paul’s liberty movement voters to support Ted Cruz for President.
Much as the Iowa losers would like to make it otherwise, Hillary Clinton is going to run a smart, technologically savvy, in the moment, ruthless wedge-issue-driven campaign and trying to defeat the Clinton machine using the rules of etiquette as taught at a finishing school for little girls is a sure formula for defeat.
Carson campaign’s failure to react leads to “Trumpertantrum”. Plus, Rick Santorum proves he doesn’t know anything about Marco Rubio; Fiorina plays gender card to make the stage for Saturday night’s debate, doesn’t work, and, George W. Bush brought in to try and rescue flailing brother Jeb.
Rick Santorum attempted to present himself as an advocate for the all but forgotten interests of America’s working men and women, yet when Santorum exited the campaign he hypocritically chose to endorse Senator Marco Rubio – the leading advocate of open borders and amnesty for illegal aliens; the very policies that Santorum campaigned against.
Rand Paul and Rick Santorum scratch themselves from the Republican presidential horse race card. Plus, Is it Marco Romn-io or Mitt Rubi-ney?; Trump and Cruz should unite against the establishment, not fight each other, and, Jimmy Carter would rather have Trump than Cruz.
At the Saudis’ behest Washington backs their misbegotten war in Yemen and remains formally committed to the overthrow of Syrian President Bashir al-Assad, the strongest force opposing the far more dangerous Islamic State. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia also underwrites extremist Islamic teaching in madrassas around the world.

Ted Cruz’s victory in the Iowa Caucuses blew the Republican establishment's idea of a pause or truce in the battle for the culture right out of the sky. Cruz’s unabashed appeal to faith-first voters, his vast support among politically active conservative Christians and Jews, and his deep personal faith guarantee that the cultural issues will not be off the table this campaign.
We think Rush missed it big time with his comment about Senator Rubio because, based on his record going back to when he was in the Florida legislature, if Marco Rubio is a “full throated conservative” it is because he is all talk on our issues.
Examining the Ted Cruz road to victory in Iowa reveals a man who knows how to inspire conservatives and win at the same time. Plus, Analyzing the analyzers -- in blowing the Iowa forecast, the pollsters screwed up, but the pundits were worse; Now that Trump is officially a “loser,” what’s next for him?, and, Establishment giddy over Marco Rubio in New Hampshire.
Despite the millions of dollars spent against him, the opposition of the entire Republican political establishment and the media fascination with Donald Trump, last night Ted Cruz proved that, when given the choice, voters will vote for the principled limited government constitutional conservative candidate who sticks to his principles – and who runs a smart campaign.
