    Regardless of who wins the election, the press — or, at any rate, what used to be called the “mainstream” media — may be the big loser. Donald Trump is making a case that he’s the victim of an orchestrated media campaign to defeat him, and although the charge is not true, it may stick among his devoted followers.

"Last night a friend claimed that Donald Trump wouldn’t make a good president; he is brash, he is racist, he is a loudmouth; you know the normal things people learn to recite after being programmed by television news. The one I loved was that, “Trump is arrogant.” My friend questioned if one man could make “that much difference in the world today.” To my friend's credit, she was respectful enough to let me respond when she asked, “Really, what has Trump done?” I said, “In June of...

    New York magazine published an interview with President Obama Sunday night which is really Obama recounting some of the high profile political arguments of his tenure. One of the arguments which gets a lot of space is Obamacare. Here’s a sample picking up from the moment Scott Brown won a special election which ended Democrats’ 60 vote majority in the Senate: The most important phone call I made after that was to Nancy Pelosi, because the question I posed to her and to Harry Reid was, “Are you guys still game?

Obama said, “There’s a long tradition in the United States of inclusion, immigration, diversity, but also people once they’re included in what they consider to be the real America, worried about outsiders, contaminating, polluting, messing up a good thing. That’s not new. That dates back to the beginning of this country. What I’m always reminding people is that although you’ll see bumps, whether it’s the No-nothings,...

    Whenever President Obama feels defensive, he likes to talk about how the world has become more safe under his watch (with the implication that it's due to his own wise leadership). We first heard him speak that way during the summer of 2014, when the world seemed to be unraveling and critics were blaming him for the sad state of affairs. Obama said, "The world is less violent than it has ever been. It is healthier than it has ever been. It is more tolerant than it has ever been. It is better fed then it’s ever been. It is...

    The deeply pessimistic outlook that Donald Trump offered at this week's Republican National Convention doesn't match reality, President Barack Obama insisted on Friday. Noting he didn't watch Trump's prime-time acceptance speech on Thursday -- "I've got a lot of stuff to do" -- Obama said he read news coverage of the remarks. And he said they didn't match most Americans' experiences. "This idea that America is somehow on the verge of collapse, this vision of violence and chaos everywhere, doesn't really jibe with the experience of most people," Obama said during a press conference in the White House East Room...

    We can't have President Trump, and she could do more to advance conservative ideas than he would. With the theatrics and tumult of the Republican National Convention behind us, many Republicans remain steadfast in their opposition to Donald Trump to be president of the United States. The reason is simple: Their conscience says he does not reflect their principles, nor those of our Republican Party. Trump’s isolationist approach, bombastic rhetoric and ignorance of issues are not things we can be proud to support. The president is the commander in chief, a role model for our children and America’s top ambassador...

    With the official nomination of Donald Trump as the Republican Party’s presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton has the opponent of her dreams — someone whose character, preparation and views are so defective as to make last night’s roll call a devastating moment in the lives of many Republicans. The GOP has had magnificent nominees (Abraham Lincoln) and likable nominees (Ronald Reagan, Dwight D. Eisenhower). It’s had admirable nominees who lost (Mitt Romney) and flawed nominees who won (Richard Nixon). It has never — and we certainly include Barry Goldwater — had a nominee who embarrasses and disgusts a significant number of...

And for the first time in years, a majority of Americans say in polls they approve of his job performance. That doesn't...

That’s also a landslide victory for Donald Trump. Another way of looking at it – that Monster Vote increase is simply adding 10% of the approximately 120 million voters who never vote in elections. And those new voters are exactly what you see showing up at Donald Trump primary campaign rallies.

    With Ohio Gov. John Kasich having won his state’s GOP presidential primary, the national Republican Party is setting up the narrative that its future now depends on Kasich. In a press release, Kasich campaign chief strategist John Weaver said with Kasich winning Ohio – the only state he has won thus far – the primary race is a “whole new ballgame.”

    Former House Speaker John Boehner Wednesday endorsed current House Speaker Paul Ryan to be the Republican presidential nominee. At the Republican convention, “anybody can be nominated,” Boehner said at a conference in Boca Raton, Fla. “If we don’t have a nominee who can win on the first ballot, I’m for none of the above,” Boehner said. "They all had a chance to win. None of them won. So I’m for none of the above. I’m for Paul Ryan to be our nominee.” Over the last few months, Boehner has privately said that he thought Ryan would be a good candidate...

    President Barack Obama said Wednesday he will reveal his Supreme Court nominee to fill the vacancy of the late Justice Antonin Scalia, expecting to choose from a small circle of federal appeals court judges. “I’ve made my decision,” Obama said in an email to supporters early Wednesday. Obama planned to introduce his pick at a Rose Garden ceremony, setting up a showdown with Senate Republicans who have told the White House not to bother filling the vacancy in an election year. In his email, Obama did not identify his choice to replace the Scalia on the nine-member court. But the...

    John Kasich: ‘I’m Going To Be The Republican Nominee After We Win Ohio’ 03/12/16 By Kailani Koenig On the day that Donald Trump lodged his toughest attack yet on rival John Kasich, the Ohio governor defended himself in an MSNBC town hall, saying that “wallowing in the mud with Donald is not what I think is a successful strategy.” Trump’s campaign is airing an advertisement on Ohio television accusing Kasich of being an “absentee governor” and hitting him for his time as a managing director at Lehman Brothers. “I will say one thing about Lehman Brothers,” Kasich shot back. “I...

    Wasserman Schultz : She's a lying hack whose entire life is built around spewing left-wing talking points from a haze of half-truth, denial, and outright falsehood The most amazing thing that happened last night wasn’t Bernie’s nominal upset in Michigan. It was the stunning revelation that Debbie Wasserman Schultz doesn’t know Hillary Clinton is running for President. How else can you explain the fact that the DNC Chairwoman claims there is no one on her side that’s facing the “threat of indictment.” If you look up the word “delusional,” this video should play:

I believe it’s going to lead to victory not just in this primary, but I believe it’s going to lead to victory in November.” Rubio arrived at 6:45 for the 6:30 rally but immediately set up for a Fox News interview, using...

    Ever since Donald Trump entered the Republican presidential race, I've been a Trump-skeptic. I understood his appeal. I got why angry and alienated Republican rank-and-file voters have glommed onto his campaign. And I could even sketch out a scenario in which Trump could win. Yet, even as his poll numbers rose and he seemed immune from the political pitfalls that usually fell first-time candidates, I couldn't quite buy the notion that Trump, former reality star and full-time blowhard, could be the Republican nominee for president. It all just seemed too far-fetched. Surely, at some point Trump would implode. Those doubts...
