4 Bush is a turd. He tries to come off like he is above the fray.. that Trump is demeaning the race. But he's as low as Trump with the attacks and now he's getting desperate for attention.

I'd never demean someone just for being a Cuban.

17 So the guys at the bottom of the pile are sniping at each other?

This might get Heb! to soar up to, oh, 8% or so in the polls. Might cost Rubio a point or two.

In the meantime, they're still solidly in the Only-the-MFM-Cares class.

And Tepid Air continues its whinge-fest against Trump.

Republican politics at its best!

Jeb! and Rubio in a Thunderdome-like fight for Establishment donor money?  Strange, especially since Jeb! was bragging to insiders about the $125 million campaign chest he had when the campaign began.  That war chest was supposed to be part of the Bush organization's shock-and-awe strategy, and now he's fighting with Rubio over the scraps.  How did Bush burn through all that money so quickly?

36 I don't know about you but that sounds awfully impolite, to accuse a man of infidelity on such thinly sourced gossip. Trump would have said he saw Rubio going down on a midget at a Tiajuana Donkey show. Just goes to show you what a low energy piker Jeb is.

Probably one of those filthy lie pushing polls, they don't want to talk to someone who is informed or might report first hand knowledge some the lies they spread...

if you lied they may have asked, "Would you vote for Rubio if you knew he was cheating on his wife with a Mexican circus midget?"

Posted by: Burnt Toast at November 30, 2015 08:05 AM (T78UI)

38 But come on. We've all seen Rubio's wife.

43 Well, isnt that a clever little move: smearing somebody by pretending to have been smeared by them. The only problem here is that anyone with eyes can see that Mr Rubio is far more likely to have severe character issues than Governor Bush. Has anyone actually ever heard of these rumors before Mr Rubio came out to complain about them?

59 Do infidelity rumors prove that Sen. Rubio is indeed the new JFK? Historians weigh in... Also, Gov.

96 Why are Rubio and Bush still in the race? Those Bush ads in Spanish can be re-run by Trump whenever he wants, same with the Rubio/Schumer video. The issue is immigration, that is what's motivating the base. The GOPe screwed up, misread America, and had better line up behind Cruz or else it will be Trump.

See: Romney, McCain, Dole, etc. But it DOES mean that he will give a good concession speech where he gracefully bows out and shows that Republicans are mature and can govern, too. Even if they lose.

190 President Barack Obama wants Turkey to close its 60-mile-long border with Syria to end the influx of new Islamic State fighters pouring into Syria and Iraq.

If Turkey acquiesces to Obama's demands, no entry points will remain between the two countries. The entire border is 550 miles long, The Wall Street Journal reports.

But a Turkish official quickly pointed out to The Wall Street Journal the irony in Washington's call to close off the border, given the U.S. is completely unable to stop flows in and out of Mexico.

In response, a U.S. official said, "If we were at war with Mexico, we'd close that border."

Anyway they like Rubio a lot, think Ted Cruz is a crazy person and think Donald Trump would be a horrible president on foreign affairs because he's too mean to people and you can't do that as a diplomat. And they also think deporting illegals, while not a bad idea, is impossible to do so why even talk about it.

Then the good times ended abruptly, and this guy, heavily financially overextended, promptly found out no one would hire him for even one-sixth the money he had been making at the evil defense contractor. He's boned.

And why did the good times end? Because of the Obama administration. Backed to the hilt by the union to which this dope and others like him had faithfully paid their dues and walked precincts. Womp, womp.

My point remains:  rigging the nomination processs via a brokered convention practically guarantees a third party split.

325 Hillary Clinton has appointed to her leadership team a former congressman who blamed his defeat on Jewish interests and the Jewish media, her campaign announced earlier this month. The Clinton campaign named Earl Hilliard, Sr., who served in Congress from 1992 to 2002, as part of her 60-member Alabamaleadership team on Nov. 20. Hilliard, who lost to then-Democrat Artur Davis in 2002, was considered one of Israels most vocal opponents in Congress. Davis, a staunch supporter of Israel who became a Republican in 2012, had the backing of groups such as the American Israel Public Affairs Committee and the Anti-Defamation League in the election. Shortly after Hilliards defeat, the former congressman gave an interview to the Black Commentator in which he said Jewish interests bought the election for Davis. The only thing I know for sure, that I saw in black and white, is $1,098,000 that [Davis] reported, said Hilliard in the July 16, 2002 interview. You cant take money from corporations, so that came from Jews and Republicans. Theres no question where that money came from. NIce.

340 212 Interesting convo I had with the in-laws over Thanksgiving. They are Democrat-ish, but not crazy leftist. They're Democrast because I don't think they understand exactly what the Democrat party has become, since they still get their news from NBC Nightly News and the local NBC station. Anyway they like Rubio a lot, think Ted Cruz is a crazy person and think Donald Trump would be a horrible president on foreign affairs because he's too mean to people and you can't do that as a diplomat. And they also think deporting illegals, while not a bad idea, is impossible to do so why even talk about it. Not saying I agree or disagree with them, but it was interesting to get that point of view from 2 people who are the types of "gee should we vote blue or red this year honey" that make or break elections. Posted by: Monsieur Mew Mew at November 30, 2015 01:38 PM (0LHZx) ------------------------------------------------------------ Pretty much heard the same points post Thanksgiving at my house.

404 Hillary Clinton has actually done something right. She has proposed that, as president, she'd spend $275 billion on repairing and maintaining existing infrastructure such as bridges, power plants, etc. The reason I like this is because its what the president should and can do. That's their job. 99% of what you get from presidential candidates is "here's what I'd do if I mind controlled congress!" or "here's what I'd do if the laws of economics and reason were suspended!" This is something presidential, at least. Of course she plans to fund it all with increased taxes, and then more increased taxes on Wall Street. And naturally "infrastructure" would be redefined to mean women's study departments, black student centers, planned parenthood funding, etc. But at least the plan is proper.

Realistically, to be at the top of your profession, you pretty much have to be committed to it full-time. It's true in medicine, and in scientific research: simply reading the literature to stay current can take up most of your free time apart from practicing medicine/carrying out research.

443 Hillary Clinton has actually done something right. She has proposed that, as president, she'd spend $275 billion on repairing and maintaining existing infrastructure such as bridges, power plants, etc. The reason I like this is because its what the president should and can do. That's their job. 99% of what you get from presidential candidates is "here's what I'd do if I mind controlled congress!" or "here's what I'd do if the laws of economics and reason were suspended!" Funny, I always thought that's why we paid taxes in the first place. Now we get to pay more again? What were all the other taxes for?

I no longer exclude the possibility that Governor Bush might lose the nomination. And that might indeed by hastened by donors jumping ship to untested, empty suit candidates.

454 I do think surgeons have a tendency to see their work as less life saving medical work and more a hobby they love to do and brag about. As long as they do the work well though, I really do not care. My problem with doctors is the same as the problem I have with McDonald's cashiers, disc jockeys, and auto mechanics: most people in any field are there for the paycheck and either lousy at it or just don't care much. When its a doctor, that means they tend to fall into a rut, won't challenge themselves when something difficult comes along, and mostly throw anti-depressant pills at people they can't diagnose easily.

461 394 I knew a few doctors and they're all smart, both in the book and street sense. Does that mean they'd make good prezzies? Of course not. But to claim that a doctor is stupid, is pretty fucking stupid.

i've been in healthcare since the early 90's and i've known and w*rked with lots of doctors.

some are brilliant, some are average, and some are moth breathing idiots who don't routinely kill their patients because ancillary staff and other doctors intervene.

not only that, but as mentioned above, many of them are useless outside of their field of specialty, and lack common sense, general knowledge or, often times, basic social skills.

They're sitting in the blind when something flies overhead. The internist jumps up, looks in the air, "Looks like a duck. Sounds like a duck. I think this might be a duck. Let me check ..." Gets his duck book out, looks for an image to identify it, pages through ... finally finds a picture that looks close, "It IS a duck!" but by the time he looks back up it's already gone. he sits back down. Then something else flies over. The neurologist jumps up, looks at it. "Looks like a duck. Sounds like a duck. Flies like a duck. Close enough that it's probably a duck." He takes a shot and wildly misses. He sits back down. Then something else flies overhead. The surgeon jumps up and shoots at it, knocking it out of the sky. Then he runs over and picks it up and screams back, "Hey, guys! Check it out. It's a duck!"

Why oldies? Well cuz by 50-55 years old most docs can comfortably retire. If they're still at it well into their 60s, it means they must actually like what they do and care about patients, etc. The 35--50 year old doctor....it's a crap shoot.

468 Funny, I always thought that's why we paid taxes in the first place. Well yeah, exactly. Basic government services should be paid for out of basic taxation, without needing a dime extra spending. That's the baseline, what the government should be doing at minimum. If it wants to do more, it needs to figure out how to pay for that, not basic services and protections. Jeb Bush seems far more interested in destroying Rubio than he does in winning. Moreover, fair or not, he does not even really seem interested in the job, period. What big-money donor wants to donate to such a campaign? There's a theory out there that Bush is running for the General election right now, reaching out to a broader appeal than just Republican voters. Its not only stupid, but pointless: nobody except really reluctant nose-gripping Republicans are going to pull the lever for Bush no matter how he campaigns or what he says.

510 Unfortunately, Walker was not entertaining enough for some people. Apparently you have to look, speak, and act like someone out of central casting to get the GOP nomination these days. Posted by: Miss80sBaby at November 30, 2015 02:38 PM (YjDyJ) Walker kneecapped himself by over-hiring and under-performing. The only reason he had to drop out when he did is because his burn rate was like a Silicon Valley start up after series A funding and he was not getting the YUGE donations he expected.

Very low. The idiot used "AND" to express a ratio. You'd have to search far and wide among 8th graders to find one that moronic. That, by itself, was a clear indication that his math SAT score didn't go north of 420, and that would have been a stellar score for him on his luckiest day. The guy is just plain dumb.

513 So far, all they've said is Cruz is Goldwater. What are they gonna do next, compare him to Howard Taft? Nobody even remembers who Goldwater was, that's almost half a century ago for crying out loud. What kind of attack is that? Of that $200B was tax cuts. A two-year rebate is not a tax cut. And since some of the legislation attached to the "stimulus" was ongoing, we're still paying on some of it, so the bill keeps going up.

Rubio will probably edge Cruz to get the nomination.

Trump will almost certainly self-destruct before the convention since he's always been his own worst enemy;  Dr. Carson will fade as his unreadiness for the job becomes even more apparent; Carly, who I support, will also fade because her lack of name recognition equates to fundraising dollars and she won't have enough of either to stay competitive; Jeb! will be forced to drop out before the convention because he's a RINO loser; and Cruz will lose simply because Rubio will be able to outspend him two-to-one.  

Rubio's handful of billionaire big money donors beats Cruz's small-money, grassroots support.

It's quite disheartening to read people referring to Carson as stupid. Look, he may believe odd things. He may not be skilled in foreign policy or whatever. But he is demonstrably not stupid.

517 7 years of wiping the floor with the GOP and people still call him stupid. He's a lot of things, stupid isn't one of them. And yes I know he mis-pronounced a word and said 57 states. He's conniving, a destroyer, a divider and a deceiver. A liar and a smooth confidence man who thinks he's far more intelligent than he really is. His off-teleprompter moments highlight his glaring inability to form a cogent thought. His only thoughts are those of a leftwing fanatic bent on eliminating the best country in the history of mankind. He's been propped up as someone to admire, much like Hillary. Neither are worthy of any of the praise heaped upon them by the sycophantic media. I'd be a better president. Two minutes to Wapner.

527 That's what I like about Trump. He knows what a million will buy and his ego is such that he will delight in showing everyone how far money can actually go if it's spent properly. Actually, that's what bothers me most about Trump, even more than his spectacular 180 on nearly every single issue in the last year. He knows about the graft... and he's neck deep in it. Ultimately, the presidential race has turned into a reality show, so serious candidates have zero chance. The Democrats are the ones the show wants to go on to the finals and win, so they get all the best camera angles, interview quotes, and little boosts from the production team.

Barack Obama doesn't "do" a hell of a lot of anything. He didn't write his speeches, research his opposition, write his policy plans, organize his Get Out the Vote efforts, or do much of anything other than show up and give speeches painted on a teleprompter. Pretending that his political achievements are the singular result of his Conan-esque political heroism and brilliance is ridiculous. He's an Ivy-league educated radical lawyer of mixed race heritage raised abroad who made outlandish promises. He's a progressive wet dream of a candidate. That's why he beat Hillary. That's why he was elected. Calling him brilliant and successful because he won is, well, fucking stupid. An absurd, idealized universe where only the best person with the most impressive personal characteristics ever wins. Where every president ever is a superlative human being who achieved their status through the power of their virtue and intelligence. Nonsense.

565 Obama has demonstrated about zero keen insights or deep thoughts. He is experienced at political manipulation, has a tremendous political team, and has a certain level of cleverness when it comes to creating popular misconceptions about himself. His hypocrisies are obvious (speaking to colleges or his Asian Trade Summit about listening respectfully to people and not demonizing them on the same day as demonizing Republicans and accusing them of fearing "widows and orphans), his insults are crude and obvious (the middle finger during the debates and his waffles and "I won" temper tantrums). There are scores or hundreds of such examples and little else to go on. If it wasn't for the MFM having a gigantic crush on him and their party loyalty he would never have got anywhere with his attitudes. He's not even a talented liar, though he is a talented speaker and for some audiences that is enough. He is of average intelligence at best, and he is undisciplined. He does have a very high opinion of himself, and so do his million girlfriends in the punditocracy.

Its like having a seal win the election to them, they have no categories in their mind to understand these events. And I think that's how the Democrats are viewing this as well. its simply incomprehensible to them.

Barky said "profit AND earnings ratios" I'm not saying anything about his stupid mistake of "profits" or not noticing that profits and earnings are the same thing btu that he used AND to tie them together in a ratio. That is not a silly slip of the tongue or misstatement. That is an indication of deep stupidity and the total inability to do any sorts of mathematical word problems ... which would lead a normal person to surmise that his math SAT score was in the basement, at best, and that he has the mathematical sophistication of a slow 8th grader, at best.

573 Also that Cruz would win a debate with Hillary. Biden spent his entire debate with Ryan laughing like a loon and sticking out his fake horse teeth and he was deemed the winner by the smart set. Unless Hillary complete implodes like Obama did in his first debate with Romney she will be called the winner. Posted by: JackStraw _______________ Exactly, all Hillary has to do is recite her talking points when it's her turn and will either be a draw or she'll be deemed the winner. And even when there's really bad debate performances like Bush in 2004 (probably the worst in the history of televised debates) or Obama in 2012, it didn't make a bit of difference. How people are perceived during the debate to the LIVs is far more important than did they "win" the exchange.

First of all, I said "excepting Dr. Carson". Second, with regards to the other three candidates you mentioned, they are more talkers than doers, especially when compared with the governors I mentioned. Sens. Rand and Cruz have not actually accomplished much in the Senate. Even on ObamaCare, which is supposedly Cruz's best issue, Rubio bested Cruz by getting an actual policy win via a policy rider. As for Trump, Mitt Romney is more of a self-made man than he is and has the better overall business record. Anyhow, most Trump fans I meet like him because of his rhetoric, not his business record.

Posted by:at November 30, 2015 02:16 PM (39g3+)  


As far as proposing a budget - yes that is an explicit presidential duty. 


As for the rest -

budget for bridges should be on autopilot as they are funded by user/gas tax and largely owned by state and local go. 

power plants are largely if not entirely run by private power companies, co-ops, etc.

When it comes right down to it - the federal go has little to nothing to do with 'infrastructure' other than tying it up in regulatory red tape.

Sorry, they say, we'd love to have that tumultuous marketplace-of-ideas you lads are always on about, but the dangers are just too great to allow it.

This is, of course, the censor's eternal apologetics for his censorship: Sure, we'd love to let you publish that book, Old Boy, but the threat to the public safety and national morals are just too great."


And then all of a sudden it hit me like a lightning bolt...When I was checking my mail I received a 16,100 mAh powerbank from Amazon and put it on top of my mailbox. After I threw away all of my junk mail, I hastily got into my truck and rushed home to eat my rapidly cooling lunch FORGETTING MY 16100 mAh POWERBANK!

Weird huh? THANKS ACE!

641 I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and assume that you don't even know what I'm talking about. Barky said "profit AND earnings ratios" I'm not saying anything about his stupid mistake of "profits" or not noticing that profits and earnings are the same thing btu that he used AND to tie them together in a ratio. That is not a silly slip of the tongue or misstatement. That is an indication of deep stupidity and the total inability to do any sorts of mathematical word problems ... which would lead a normal person to surmise that his math SAT score was in the basement, at best, and that he has the mathematical sophistication of a slow 8th grader, at best.

When he first got in office he made a big show to tell his department heads to trim a total of $100 million in spending. As if that if that would even make a dent in the deficit, yet TO THIS DAY he still claims to have cut the deficit in half. In his mind he cut the $200 billion dollar deficit he inherited from Bush (outside of TARP) by ordering the $100 million in spending reduction.
