    I try to minimize election predictionsespecially long before the voting on election daybut I consider this prediction one of the easiest I have ever made. Hillary Clinton will win by a landslide against Donald Trump. I expect her to win 46 states, and if I am wrong, it is equally likely she will win more than 46 states in November, rather than less. FBI Director James Comey will announce that he is not recommending a criminal prosecution in the Clinton email case, which will give her a tremendous boost. To understand the full magnitude of Clintons coming victory consider the...
  • Obama Credits Self for Economic Recovery Smart Decisions Early in My Presidency

    In his weekly address released Saturday morning, President Barack Obama credited himself for the economic recovery throughout the country and specifically pointed to Elkhart, IN, where he gave a speech about the economy earlier in the week as an example. Transcript as follows: Elkhart, IN was the first town I visited as President. Id been on the job for three weeks, and we were just a few months into the worst economic crisis of our lifetimes. Elkhart was hit harder than most. Unemployment there peaked at nearly twenty percent shortly after my visit. Nearly one in five people there were...

    Yesterday President Obama made a visit to Elkhart, Indiana to tout the so-called economic recovery as a roaring success and reason to elect Hillary Clinton in order to preserve his legacy. He also took the opportunity to slam Fox News for reporting the truth about a slow economic recovery. President Obama Delivers Remarks on the Economy Many living in Elkhart rejected Obama taking credit for the economic progress of hard working businesses in the area and a new jobs report out today is the worst we've seen on the employment front in five years.

    Vice President Joe Biden says he would have been the best president if he had mounted a successful campaign in the 2016 election, but that forgoing the race was the right decision for his family. Speaking with Good Morning America co-anchor Robin Roberts in an exclusive interview that aired today, Biden said he had planned to run but changed course only after his eldest son Beau died last May. No one should ever seek the presidency unless they're able to devote their whole heart and soul and passion into just doing that, he said. And, Beau was my soul. I...

    Thats 7.2 million more votes than Barack Obama carried in 2008, and almost 13 million more than Mitt Romney carried in 2012. Thats YUGE ! Thats the Monster Vote. Thats 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.

Saving the world economy from a Great Depression that was pretty good, Obama bragged when asked by a student in London what he wanted his legacy to be.

    The John Kasich campaign declared Tuesday night that the nomination contest is now wide open as early exit poll results predicted a Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 97% victory over Donald Trump in the Wisconsin primary. Kasich campaign manager John Weaver sent out a memo explaining that Trump will probably not get to 1,237 delegates now, opening up the convention floor for a second-ballot Kasich power play. Cruz is currently racing to steal delegates to win on the second ballot as the Republican Establishment hints that it might run Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) 56% at the convention in Cleveland.

Of course, he flopped in last week's other contests, ending the evening with almost two dozen fewer delegates than Sen. Marco Rubio, who exited the GOP race. Kasichs campaign has bordered on the bizarre. He has survived for two reasons: First, he has refused to get out, no matter how badly he has done. And second, he has been so irrelevant that nobody attacked him, leaving him generally unscathed in a race where there is plenty of blood on the...

    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...

With just one year left in his second term, Obama now holds...

The bizarre argument comes in a new interview with Olivier Knox of Yahoo!

Obama also shrugs off concerns about recidivism of former Guantanamo detainees, suggesting that only a "handful" of former detainees have returned to the fight and claiming that only "low-level"...

    Following on the heels of the Swedish foreign minister, the chairman of the Dutch Socialist Party in the Netherlands justified the Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists who conducted Saturday's brutal attacks in Paris that left 129 dead, blaming it on "frustration" at Israel. According to Jan Marijnissen, the conflict between Israel and the Palestinian Arabs somehow ignited the attack on French civilians at cafes, show venues, soccer stadiums and restaurants. "Their behavior eventually is connected also to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict," claimed Marijnissen in an interview with the Dutch NPO Radio1 on Monday. ...

    On Thursday, President Barack Obama declared in an interview that ISIS had been "contained," asserting that the terror cell had been stalled in Iraq and Syria. The next day, ISIS claimed responsibility for one of the worst terror attacks in European history, shattering what had been a growing sense of momentum in the global fight against extremists and driving home the frightening ability of ISIS to inspire and possibly coordinate attacks outside their power base in Iraq and in Syria. "We, including the President, have said from beginning the fight against ISIL would be long and have both good and...

    ....Obama seemingly downplayed the threat of ISIS in an interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos that aired on Friday's broadcast of "Good Morning America." Stephanopoulos asked Obama if ISIS was gaining in strength, to which Obama denied they were. "I don't think they're gaining strength," Obama responded. "What is true is that from the start, our goal has been first to contain and we have contained them. They have not gained ground in Iraq, and in Syria they'll come in, they'll leave, but you don't see this systemic march by ISIL across the terrain."

    Jihad: Amid fresh terror strikes in Paris and Beirut, and the FBI arrest of an Ohio Islamic State operative who sought to kill U.S. soldiers and American shoppers and students, President Obama downplays the IS threat. 'ISIS is gaining strength, aren't they?" ABC's Good Morning America host George Stephanopoulos asked the president Friday, citing this month's suicide bombings in Beirut and the bombing of a Russian commercial jetliner by the Islamic State, which killed 40 and 244, respectively. "I don't think they're gaining strength," Obama asserted. "We have contained them." This may go down as one of the most irresponsible...

  • The role guns played in Virginia elections (Mucho Barfo!)

    There’s been a lot of Monday-morning quarterbacking about how firearm violence prevention played in Virginia elections this year. Let’s look at the two state Senate races where the issue played a central role: Senate District 10 in the Richmond area and Senate District 29 in Prince William County. In both races, gun safety was either the winning factor or helped tighten a race in a previously non-competitive GOP-held district. First, polling in and outside of Virginia shows more than 85 percent of Americans support common-sense firearms-violence prevention rules such as universal background checks or keeping firearms out of the hands...

"I think Donald's campaign has been immensely beneficial for our campaign and the reason is, he's framed the central issue of the Republican primary as, who will stand up to Washington," [sic] Trump told "Meet the Press" moderator Chuck Todd. "Well, the natural follow up if that's the question is, who has actually stood up to Washington?" [sic] Trump continued, adding that he's the only one with the...
