  • Limbaugh: Jeb Bush really running to kill tea party

    “He’s … being looked at as savior by the big-money donor class and the consultant class – the establishment of the party – to head off the tea party. They’re gonna pull out all the stops to make sure that a tea-party-type conservative doesn’t get the nomination.

    Is Jeb really the best they can do?

    I doubt anybody sought him out as a savior.

    He just made himself available early to squeeze out other candidates and got a few takers.

    He's going in early precisely because there's no groundswell of enthusiasm for him.

  • Establishment revenge? Jeb Bush, Romney lead GOP field for ’16

    The best case scenario would be for Jeb, Mitt, and Chris to all be in the race against a single conservative opponent, so that the establishment vote would split between the three of them while conservative votes consolidate around a single candidate.

    The worst-case scenario would be Jeb Bush (and no other RINOS) against a field of primary candidates who divide the conservative vote.

    Consider what happened when Giuliani ran. He wasn't the most wildly implausible presidential candidate ever. But he got just about no support anywhere, because it was felt he'd take votes away from the front-runners, so he pulled out pretty quickly. The voters he's competing for want a winner.

    By contrast, conservative candidates linger forever on the merest hope they'd be elected. Their constituents reward purity or consistency or principle and haven't had much of a problem splitting the vote among multiple candidates.

    Unless there really isn't more than one or two conservative candidates it will be the same way this time around. Jeb gets in early to head off Mitt, and when Chris enters either he or Jeb will make a quick exit.

    And of course, if a conservative does arise who can really challenge Jeb or Chris or Mitt, sooner or later the word gets out that he or she isn't really conservative enough, but that's another story.

    Name recognition - of course they lead the field.

    Very true. People just go with the name they recognize in these early polls.

    But being governor of a sizeable state isn't the worst preparation for running for president and governing from the White House. Governors actually have to administer things. They have to make appointments and monitor the work of their subordinates and take the responsibility or blame when things go wrong. They actually have to make and balance budgets and convince legislatures to pass them, which is harder than just voting for or against a budget or holding up the process.

    I'm not crazy about Christie or Romney and don't think I could vote for Bush, but if you really don't like them and want to beat them, you have to come up with a candidate who may be more like them than Herman Cain or Michelle Bachmann or Ben Carson or Rick Santorum. You have to have somebody who has actually run something. The irony is that Ronald Reagan was very much in that old tradition of governors as presidential candidates -- he was governor of the largest and wealthiest state for 8 years -- but his name survives now as an example of the ideological tribune as presidential candidate, rather than as someone who had extensive experience governing a major state.

    Statements like that are meaningless. There's the historic JFK in the context of his own time, and we know how he felt about Castro.

    Then there's some imaginary Kennedy abstracted out of his historical context, a non-existent entity that you can make anything you like out of.

    Is it a 97 year old JFK who survived the assassination attempt? Or one that was magically plucked from the world of the 1960s and set down in the present?

    For the record I suspect that once imaginary JFK got over his confusion at 21st century life probably would follow his family and his party -- he wasn't exactly a man of principle in his own time -- but that imaginary Kennedy wouldn't have much to do with the fellow who was around five decades back.

  • Jeb Bush Cannot Win The White House

    12/16/2014 9:54:08 AM PST · 40 of 59
    x to LeoMcNeil
    After McCain and Mitt Romney, party moderates, got trounced by Obama the Bush’s make their return to offer us the son more like Bush 41. Bush has to know the Republican base wants nothing to do with another moderate, which is why he’s asking McCain of all people how to marginalize conservatives. Bush might as well ask Mitt Romney as well. Both McCain and Romney marginalized conservatives in the GOP primaries by being the only viable moderate candidate running. With 39% of the primary vote, Romney won the nomination. He and McCain can tell Bush how to marginalize the base, what they cannot do is tell him how to win the base back so he can win the White House. If the purpose of running for President is winning the big prize in November, it doesn’t pay to marginalize and outrage your own party’s base.

    Nevertheless, that appears to be Jeb Bush’s goal. He’s announcing his candidacy early in order to raise money and convince Mitt Romney and Chris Christie not to run. If he can convince them not to run, all he needs is 39% support and a boatload of money to win the nomination.

    Other sources have Romney winning 52% of the primary vote. It's not always easy to specify just who is a Republican and who is part of the Republican base. You may be assuming that the Republican base is comprised of people who didn't vote for Romney in the primaries and that everybody who voted against Romney was for "anybody but Romney." One can be skeptical about both of those assumptions.

    Around four million conservative Republicans didn’t show up on election day in 2012, costing Mitt Romney the election.

    So said the early reports, but I think that number was revised downward. What hurt Romney more in the states where the election was decided was the rich guy factor and his attitude toward the auto bailout, more than general ideological hostility towards him.

    Bush will have trouble if he runs because people don't respond well to the Bush name nowadays, because he's not a very inspiring candidate and has little charisma, because he's yesterday's news, and because there isn't enough daylight between him and Hillary for voters to really care.

    But the way to deny him the nomination isn't to back a lot of little candidates each claiming to be the most conservative. It's to find somebody who has a broad appeal that goes beyond the narrowest possible definition of the party base. The problem with that is that any such candidate would be accused of not being conservative enough. It's a vicious circle.

    Rupert Murdoch is a big Hillary donor. He will make sure Fox slants everything to boost Jeb Bush as the GOP candidate because he will be easy for Hillary to beat.

    Or just because he'd be happy with either in office.

    I don't think it's so much that he loves Hillary. He recognizes that the parties alternate in power and she's a Democrat he can live with, like Tony Blair was a Labourite that he could live with.

    This is why we want to encourage lots of RINOs to run, maybe even send them some money early on.

    The people who back those candidates coalesce behind one early on. Look at what happened to Rudy Giuliani when he ran. He was a plausible candidate but his campaign went nowhere.

    On that side of the party, people vote for the front runner and the also-rans are squeezed out early in the process because winning or appearing to be a winner (or the candidate whose turn it is) is everything.

    On the other side one candidate can always try to "out-conservative" the others, and somebody without much support can run a shoe-string campaign on passion alone even if winning the nomination isn't pretty much impossible.

    Any candidate who becomes a conservative front runner is liable to be "out-conservatived" by somebody on his or her right, unless he or she has acquired the kind of immunity that Ronald Reagan had.

    Academic politics revolves around finding victim or grievance groups. Law school politics involves giving things to such groups to make up for something that was presumably done to them.

    All that may make for crazy policies, but taken together such concepts go far in explaining the current administration. Someone who thinks he belongs to a victim or grievance groups will go further than somebody who doesn't have an emotional stake in the process, but dragging in subjective and emotional rhetoric about hating America doesn't do much more to explain Obama and his actions.

  • Why a return to federalism must include repeal of the 17th Amendment

    12/13/2014 1:04:49 PM PST · 27 of 86
    x to Conscience of a Conservative
    I don’t think repealing the 17th Amendment would necessarily return to federalism. Two problems jump out: first, corruption of state legislatures could be a huge issue - one of the reasons the 17th amendment passed in the first instance is that there were a number of scandals in which people essentially bought Senate seats by bribing legislators. Second, there is a risk (also present before the 17th amendment passed initially) that state elections would become little more than proxies for the Senate election.

    Both good points. Some have argued that the corruption of state legislators under the old system was exaggerated by reformers and the press, but bribery was a sensitive issue that caused public outrage that went beyond the current disapproval of campaign financing. Indirect elections often meant very direct payouts to legislators, in contrast to more indirect uses of money under the current system of direct election.

    The old system was associated with the partiless republic that the Founders envisaged. They thought state legislators (and the electoral college) would automatically choose the most distinguished men in the state for the federal Senate. They didn't forsee that the contest -- both for the Senate and for President -- would be between organized party machines that might not leave much room for legislators' discretion.

    Under the older system, state legislators could guarantee a senate seat to someone like Webster or Clay or Calhoun. A great man might become vice president or cabinet secretary or ambassador and find himself back in the Senate when a seat became open again in his home state. The Founders would have liked that. We might think it crony politics and the elite looking after itself. Once party politics and an industrialized national economy got under way, that option disappeared, and senatorial elections became contests between parties, not searches for the person state legislators might regard as most qualified.

    As the government and the party system developed the more ambitious politicians gravitated to Washington. Those who stayed in the state legislators were more than willing to play a secondary rule to the feds, especially after the income tax amendment greatly increased federal revenues. At this point, I don't see state legislators fighting to take back power -- especially if it involves greater responsibility.

    The two reasons Hamilton gave for indirect election were that it allowed for the selection of more distinguished men than than direct election and that it would bind the states closer to the federal government. The other Founders may well have felt very differently, but Hamilton wanted state legislators to choose the senators to decrease the independent power of the states, rather than to increase it, if what I've read is correct.

    My point was that Palin helped McCain, but he squashed her ideas so he could lose.

    If he would have been a conservative he would have embraced her Tea Party/Conservative policies and ideas and could have won election.

    Just how ready and prepared Palin and her ideas were in 2008 is something to discuss, as is just how much McCain really wanted to win, but after the bottom fell out of the economy no Republican could have won.

    There was no magic Palin pill or bullet that would have pulled McCain over the top when people were worried about losing their jobs and savings and blamed the crisis on Bush.

    There is one pretty terrific artistic choice. Ridley Scott cast an eleven-year old boy, Brit Isaac Andrews, to represent the all-might Lord and it’s divine. Eschewing the standard “might voice from the sky” shtick, Andrews plays God as a pissed-off, impatient, and petulant child.

    x to 2ndDivisionVet
    The writer doesn't show much understanding of how politicians change when they move from the state to the national stage. Governors have to balance budgets and they have to deal with state legislators who may have very conservative views. They also aren't insulated from the public to the same degree that Washington politicians are. Once politicians move to DC, their views often lurch leftward, and conservatives see that coming in Bush.

    Ronald Reagan acquired an immunity to challenges from the right. Other Republican politicians don't have that. Bush certainly doesn't. Part of his problem is his name, but another problem for him is that he doesn't understand just how much more important the issue illegal immigration has become since he was in office.

    Tongue in cheek aside: America will have trouble electing a fat president again. Taft and Cleveland were a long time ago. Politicians like Bill Clinton or Mike Huckabee or Chris Christie have a class-regional-ethnic thing going -- growing boys making up for childhood deprivation. But you can't be a 12th generation American, a 4th generation millionaire, a 3rd generation politician and a 2nd generation president and be so jowly.

    x to Sherman Logan
    Obama blew it when he decided to be a “black” president or man.

    A far better approach would have been for him to define himself as both black and white, rising above the artificial distinction as irrelevant. Instead, by choosing his black ancestry as definitive, rejecting and denying his white ancestry, he actually made the divide more important, not less.

    That would have made him less popular in the Black community. As a Democrat, he'd still carry the group, but there'd be more ill feeling if it were felt that his identification was less than complete and his loyalties divided.

    This is especially so because he was essentially raised as “white,” in white culture, not black. By his actions he demonstrated that one-half of his race and ancestry was, and should be, more important and definitive of him than the other half and his upbringing combined. Just as the Nazis and KKK have always said.

    They'd say it was inevitable and biological, but it was a choice, like the choices other people make in life. But I don't think it's so much a matter of defining oneself. It was more a question of not plunging into divisive issues and promoting larger causes that get away from racial divides. That he didn't do.

    Groups like these have complicated histories. In the 70s, the DSOC or DSA was non-Communist without being anti-Communist, not advocating Stalinism, but opposed to US foreign policy.

    What they wanted in the US and what they were willing to embrace in other countries weren't always the same thing. Since then they've taken in a lot of ex-Communists and Old New Leftists who had similar ambivalent feelings about Communism.

    That's the case with left-wing parties all around the world. How many members actually want to reproduce Stalin's or Mao's or Castro's system now is another matter, though.

  • Expensive 'Stand with Hillary' video reveals her desperation

    If she's not on the video saying, "I approve this message" then it isn't from her campaign. In fact it says at the end "Not authorized by any candidate or candidate's committee."

    There are so many independent PACs out there supporting candidates that I really doubt she actually gave her okay to this or that it represents her desperation.

    The continuing saga of defending racist Demwit Bill Cosby as if he's a conservative and/or Republican baffles and astounds

    You're implying that if he had the right politics it would be right to defend him?
