    Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign brushed off a high-profile supporter’s warnings against doing campaign events with a Silicon Valley CEO whose company has since imploded under the weight of layoffs, a federal criminal investigation, and rebukes from top regulators. Campaign staff circulated an internal schedule of fundraising events in March that included a “Conversation with Chelsea” event at the Palo Alto offices of biotech startup Theranos that featured the company’s chief executive Elizabeth Holmes.
  • Cruz Statement on Suspension of Jindal Campaign

    HOUSTON, Texas – Presidential candidate Ted Cruz today released the following statement regarding Gov. Bobby Jindal's suspension of his presidential campaign:“Bobby Jindal is a friend, a patriot, and an incredible governor who has consistently and passionately championed conservative values. He brought a unique talent and many strengths to the Republican primary competition.“His focus on substantive policy matters advanced the debate that our party must have on the issues most important to American voters. And his vision for fundamental tax reform, as well as repealing and replacing Obamacare, helped set an important standard among the Republican field. He presented bold policy...
  • Cruz-Bush Tensions Magnified as 2016 Race Heats Up

    When word spread late Monday that George W. Bush had bluntly expressed his dislike for Ted Cruz, it was not exactly a surprise to those familiar with the former president's thinking. Tensions between the Bushes, the most famous family in Texas politics, and Cruz, the freshman senator with his sights set on the White House, are nothing new. And a presidential race in which Cruz has made no secret of how he views GOP foe Jeb Bush and past Bush administrations has done little to settle the rift. "I just don't like the guy," George W. Bush said of...

    Sen. Ted Cruz raised $1 million in the first nine days of the fourth quarter, according to his presidential campaign. The number shows that his fundraising operation appears to have thus far outpaced the previous quarter's results and has momentum. "It certainly shows what kind of incredible support and enthusiasm we have for our campaign," said campaign manager Jeff Roe in a statement touting the October fundraising numbers. "But more than that, we have made the right investments in our fundraising infrastructure that ensures a sustained ability to raise the resources we need to be competitive in the early states...
  • Compare and contrast: Same TV reporter approaches Hillary Clinton and Marco Rubio

    The American Thinker ^ | 4-17-15 | Thomas Lifson
    The following contrasting videos should be enough to chill the bones of every Democrat sensibly worried about how good a candidate Hillary Clinton will be. Dan Calabrese, of Herman Cain’s website brings us the two videos of the same TMZ reporter walking up to both candidates at an airport as they arrive. First, here is Marco Rubio: All smiles and affability, Sure, the reporter is not hostile, but anyone could get annoyed at questions about a spouse's past. Instead, Rubio laughs, makes a joke at his own expense, and comes across as a totally likable guy. Hillary, not so...
  • Is George Stephanopoulos Helping Hillary launch her Presidential Campaign Again?

    04/01/2015 2:59:01 PM PDT · by Isara · 30 replies
    George Stephanopoulos was one of the leading members of Clinton's 1992 U.S. presidential campaign and worked in the Clinton administration before turning "journalist." In 2012, he injected the birth-control-pill issue into the 2012 presidential election debate to create the illusion of a GOP "War on Women." The objective may have been to help create camaraderie among women to benefit Hillary. Now, it seems that he is doing it again. Out of the clear blue, he pounded Mike Pence on signing a bill that many states have. The issue this time is LGBT. Is it possible that Hillary is going to...
  • Liberals are Already Trying to Re-write the History of the Obama Presidency

    11/15/2014 6:40:08 AM PST · by Kaslin · 10 replies ^ | November 15, 2014 | John C. Goodman
    The Obama presidency is a failed presidency. He has presided over one of the slowest economic recoveries in history. His foreign policy has been a disaster. ObamaCare is a mess. And itÂ’s hard to lay the blame off on anyone else. The president didnÂ’t make Republicans part of any of his decisions and most of the time he ignored congressional Democrats as well.To make matters worse, Barack Obama is the most polarizing president we have had in the past 60 years. What makes that so strange is that we were all promised something completely different.Charles Blow, writing in The New...
  • Mitt Romney: Born Again

    He tried ignoring his base in the primary when it was rallying behind marriage in North Carolina and rallying behind Chick-fil-a when it was under attack, and that didn’t work. Then he tried just scaring people into voting against Obama, and that didn’t work. Finally, Mitt Romney tried conservatism at Wednesday night’s debate—and that did. The result was Romney – that’s right, the guy that was once named the No.8 RINO in the country by Human Events – provided the country the most teachable moment on the differences between Republicans and Democrats in a presidential election since before Al Gore...
  • With Cash And Coverage, Comcast/MSNBC Dive To Bottom Of Dem Tank

    How deep are MSNBC and its parent company Comcast in the tank for the Democrats? So deep that even the New York Times [!] has headlined an article "Welcome to the MSNBC, Er, Democratic Convention." [H/t Mediaite] The article details how MSNBC personalities were treated like rock stars by adoring Dems. Even more telling is this: "Four years ago, there was open anxiety inside MSNBC over having the unabashedly partisan Keith Olbermann anchor convention coverage. But the era of liberal hand-wringing appears to have passed." Translation: in the tank and proud. Comcast's servicing of the Dems doesn't end with adoring...
  • Herman Cain: pizza boss, radio host, ballistics expert, minister. President?

    He is the latest Tea Party favourite to burst through in the increasingly heated race for the Republican presidential nomination and see their poll numbers rocket them to frontrunner status. However, unlike previous rightwing darlings such as Texas governor Rick Perry and Minnesota congresswoman Michele Bachmann, wealthy businessman Herman Cain, 65, can claim to be cut from a very different sort of cloth from the average Republican candidate. First, he is not actually a politician. Cain, whose CV includes being a radio show host, a navy ballistics expert, a Baptist minister and a Federal Reserve official, has never held elected...

    DSCC - Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee News letter | 14 Feb 2008 | Wes Clark
    DSCC - Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee Dear Rick , If you don't think John McCain is just as dangerous in the White House as George W. Bush, think again. McCain will not reverse the foreign policy mistakes of George Bush. He is content to leave us in Iraq, saying it'd be "fine by me" if we were in Iraq for another 100 years; he is rash on using military force with Iran. He overplays the military card and doesn't seem to appreciate that the real strength of the nation lies in our economy and in our values. We have to...

    Senator Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.) has been assembling focus groups to test a variety of campaign slogans. Her campaign has worked hard to ensure that the focus groups are ethnically, racially, and sexually balanced. “We want to get a true representation of the American people because Senator Clinton intends to reflect the views of America in both her campaign and her administration,” said political consultant Bea Manley. Of the focus group participants, fifty percent are women, twelve percent are Afro-American, twenty percent are Hispanic, 10 percent are gay, fifteen percent are on welfare, thirty percent are children, and six percent are...

    PONTIAC, Mich. -- Any real doubt that Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney will run for the 2008 Republican presidential nomination should have been resolved by his performance Monday in suburban Oakland County, Mich. He did not merely drop into his native state for a political fund-raising speech. He spent a 12-hour candidate's day working a key presidential primary state. Romney's public exposure was less than two hours at the Marriott Hotel in Pontiac for the 13th annual event sponsored by Rep. Joe Knollenberg. But in closed-door meetings starting at 8 a.m., he conferred with Republican politicians and donors. Although Romney sought...

    Gov.'s World Tour May Be a Presidential Campaign Trail As Schwarzenegger racks up global photo ops, backers seek to amend the Constitution.SACRAMENTO — More and more, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is acting as if he wants to be president. Though he insists he is not aiming for the Oval Office, Schwarzenegger is keeping a public schedule that repeatedly puts him in forums that cast him as a political figure of global stature. (snip) But Schwarzenegger has shown surpassing ambition in his bodybuilding, acting and political careers. He is not easily deterred by conventional wisdom. He signed no deals and created no...

    Swift Boat Veterans for Truth ^ | May 4, 2004 | Rear Admiral Roy Hoffman, USN (retired)
    I know many people have seen this quote...but I believe it deserves a thread of its own that can be referenced, ping'ed, commented on, forwarded in emails, pointed to and referenced during the upcoming campaign. This quote was made at a press conference by Rear Admiral Roy Hoffman, USN (retired) who is the chairman of Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, on May 4, 2004. "I do not believe John Kerry is fit to be Commander-in-Chief of the armed forces of the United States. This is not a political issue. It is a matter of his judgment, truthfulness, reliability, loyalty and...

    Pres. Bush ramped up his re-election bid with a staple of modern-day campaigns: a bus trip. His convoy of eight buses — red, white and mostly blue — began in northern Indiana, where he campaigned for Mitch Daniels, a former aide now running for governor, and sped across the southern border of Michigan to suburban Detroit. Nothing was left to chance. Tickets to his speeches were doled out by partisans. (That statement made by an AP reporter of course.) Local reporters, not members of the White House press corps, were welcomed aboard Bush's bus for brief interviews. And the route...

    AUGUST 11, 2003 As Vermont governor, the liberal firebrand was a fiscal conservative with close ties to business Howard Dean has fought his way to the front of the Democratic pack jostling for the 2004 Presidential nomination partly because he has won the hearts of so many liberals with his antiwar rhetoric and shoot-from-the-lip style. But who is the real Howard Dean? Is he the left-of-center insurgent being portrayed in the press or the business-friendly fiscal conservative and pragmatic moderate who governed Vermont for 11 years? Many who worked with Dean are astonished at his current image and comparisons to...
