  • Does New Hampshire Mean Hillary Clinton Will Lose? That Depends On Her Strategy Going Forward

    Oh, what a difference a week makes: After barely eking past her Democratic opponent in Iowa, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lost the New Hampshire primary to Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders on Tuesday night. With 68 percent of precincts reporting at press time, Sanders had a nearly 20 point lead over Clinton. Does her loss in New Hampshire mean Clinton will lose the nomination? Right now -- only one state into the long primary process between now and party nominations in July -- it's still too early to tell. What we do know is that in order for Clinton...

"And what we should be doing in the African-American community, and all communities, is build up respect for police officers. And focus on the fact that when something does go wrong, okay. We'll work on that. But the vast majority of police officers risk their lives to keep us safe."

    Former New York Mayor and 2008 Republican presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani, who hasn't yet endorsed a candidate, said if it came down to GOP frontrunner Donald Trump versus Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), he would vote for Trump. "If it came down to Trump or Cruz, there is no question I'd vote for Trump," Giuliani, who was mayor during the 9-11 terrorist attack, said. "As a party, we'd have a better chance of winning with him, and I think a lot of Republicans look at it that way." The statement comes as The Washington Post is reporting that the GOP establishment...

    Now that Trump is making his defense of New York values the centerpiece of his campaign and doing that by making everything about 911 it seems to me like his campaign is sounding more and more like Giuliani 2.0. Here are the reasons I am thinking so. 1. He is trying to wrap himself and his New York values in 9/11 heroism. 2. His supporters don't seem to care about the fact that he publically attributed his support for partial birth abortion to growing up in New York City. 3. Many of his supporters seem to be quite happy to...

In his new opinion-based role, he's worked to carve out a niche as a 'pox on both houses' purveyor of common sense, a detector of BS, a practitioner of intellectual honesty, and Chief of the Civility Police.  In that last capacity, Fournier expended much indignant energy denouncing Rudy Giuliani's acerbic commentary about President Obama's patriotism -- wrongly asserting that Obama would never say such nasty things about his political opponents.  Regardless of that particular blind spot, Fournier would likely tell you that he feels...

    Democrats and Republicans play by different rules because the media enforces those rules, and members of the national press tend to be liberal Democrats. During the Bush years, we were often reminded, dissent was the "highest form of patriotism." Over the course Obama's tenure, dissent became dangerous, disrespectful, un-American and quite possibly racist. When a conservative figure says something that seems to impugn or question a prominent liberal's character or love of country, "civility" SWAT teams are dispatched to knock down some proverbial doors. Such transgressions mustn't stand. But when the dynamic is reversed, the civility police are curiously off...

But that is exactly what transpired. While unplanned, Giuliani expressed a question of fundamental importance within the Republican Party, which allowed Walker to define himself unmistakably. Giuliani defends his original claim in a Wall Street Journal op-ed today. In it, Giuliani argues that Obama is criticizing his country more than other presidents have done, regardless of their political affiliation, and likewise fails to express a fundamental belief in the countrys greatness and the example...

    Former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani’s statement about President Obama’s lack of love for America has set off a firestorm of denunciation. Giuliani has been accused of racism, and he has even received death threats. Defenders of Obama have evoked everything from his grandfather’s (on his mother’s side) service in World War II to the two years Giuliani’s father served in Sing Sing to prove either that Obama does love America or that Giuliani has no standing to issue such criticism. The ranting has obscured the reasons why so many Americans take Giuliani’s remarks to heart. Starting with his June...

    Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani has generated a firestorm by asserting, at a fundraiser for Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the President loves America. Of course, thats nuts. Barack Obamas deep and true love for our country has been a hallmark of his career. In no other country on Earth, he said when he was seeking the presidency, is my story even possible. Obama said this, it should be noted, in his masterly speech on race an issue that is Americas most difficult and...

    Does it matter if Obama is a Christian or not? No, but it matters how Republicans answer stupid questions like that.Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has been surging in recent weeks, and there is a sense he could be the guy to bridge the gap between the Republican establishment and the grassroots conservative base. But campaigns are crucibles, and if the last couple of days are a harbinger of things to come, he’s in trouble. Could it be that the governor who fought so courageously against Wisconsin unions might not be ready for prime time on the national stage? No, I’m...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Potential Republican presidential candidate Sen. Lindsey Graham has "no doubt" that President Obama loves his country, refuting comments made by former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani earlier this week. Well, I love Rudy, but I dont want to go there. The nations very divided. President Obama has divided us more than hes brought us together and I dont want to add to that division, Graham initially said on ABC's "This Week" today, before adding, I have no doubt that he loves his country. I have no doubt that hes a patriot. But his primary job as president of the United...

    Those of us who have lived in the NYC area going back to his tenure knew Rudy Giuliani to be a petty, controlling narcissist all along, but when put on the spot to do so he could behave himself, as he did after 9/11 when the television cameras of the world were upon him. But lately hes been letting his True Rudy flag fly. His recent comment that he doesnt know if the President loves America has brought on a lot of commentary about Giulianis sad self-destruction, Its been a long time coming; he pretty much lost his post-9/11 glow...

    Sunday on CNNs State of the Union, host Gloria Borger was rebuked by former Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge, former Gov. George Pataki (R-NY) and Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) for the medias obsession with Rudy Giuliani comments last week accusing President Obama of not loving America. Borger twice called the comments hateful, as the panel continued to refuse her prodding to attack Americas mayor. I dont think Rudys ever going to get the dust from Ground Zero out of his lungs, Issa said. He was there during the fall of those towers so for him to take personally a president...

    In the wake of his questioning of President Obamas love for this country, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani is catching flak from Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz. This kind of comment is unwelcome and dangerous, Schultz said. The President is the most powerful person on the planet. Insulting him like this is tantamount to poking a lion with a stick. What can Giuliani be thinking? What people need to understand is that President Obama is not a rah-rah or God bless America type of patriot, Schultz explained. Hes just the only president to be completely honest...

    At the heart of the Giuliani-led critique of the presidents patriotism is the suggestion that Barack Obama has never expressed love for the United States. Rudolph W. Giuliani, the former mayor of New York City, has even challenged the media to find examples of Mr. Obama expressing such affection. Has the president done so? Yes, he has. A review of his public remarks provides multiple examples.
