  • Jeb Bush's Campaign On Life Support After Rough Debate

    10/29/2015 7:04:38 AM PDT · by jimbo123 · 30 replies
    The biggest story from last night's debate wasn't Marco Rubio's strong performance (which it was), Ted Cruz stealing a moment (which he did), or the candidates and GOP audience attacking the media (which most definitely happened). Rather, the most significant story from last night is that Jeb Bush's campaign now finds itself on life support, especially after Bush swung and missed when trying to hit Rubio over his Senate voting record. As one Republican operative told NBC's Peter Alexander, Bush had to demonstrate to his supporters and donors - after a rough last few weeks - that the former Florida...

    Jeb Bush, who has struggled to gain traction among Republican voters for months now, suggested that maybe he doesn't want to be president anyway if it means continued partisan fighting. "If this election is about how we're going to fight to get nothing done, then ... I don't want any part of it," he said in South Carolina, according to CNN. "I don't want to be elected president to sit around and see gridlock just become so dominant that people literally are in decline in their lives. That is not my motivation." "I've got a lot of really cool things...

    **Exclusive** Late Thursday evening, Mitt Romney's presidential campaign launched a new fundraising drive, 'Meet The VP' -- just as Romney himself has narrowed the field of candidates to a handful, sources reveal. And a surprise name is now near the top of the list: Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice! The timing of the announcement is now set for 'coming weeks'. MORE It was Condi who received two standing ovations at Romney's Utah retreat a few weeks ago, and everyone left with her name on their lips. Rice made an extended argument for American leadership in the world.

    LAS VEGAS - Rick Perry is sitting comfortably on a plush sofa in a hotel far from the strip that put the sin in "Sin City." It's the day after another presidential debate, and if the flat-screen in front of him were on, he'd hear plenty of appraisals of whether a new fiery approach helped his pursuit of the highest office in the land or hurt him more. Instead, he's talking about his boyhood in Texas, his time in the Air Force and a wiener dog named Lucy. He is, here in suite 6118 of the Red Rock resort, relaxed...

    Another Republican operative said he had spoken with an old friend of Gingrich's in the South who had been planning a fundraiser for the campaign. There were 18 co-chairs for the event until Gingrich's appearance on "Meet the Press" Sunday, where he labeled Rep. Paul Ryan's (R-Wisc.) proposed budget "radical" and "right-wing social engineering." "He said like 13 of them dropped off within 24 hours of 'Meet the Press,'"

    It started with a showing of "Shutter Island" and ended with a real life attempted murder charge. A 39-year-old Lancaster man accused of stabbing another moviegoer with a meat thermometer during a screening of the horror film was ordered Friday to stand trial on attempted murder and other charges. Lancaster Superior Court Judge Christopher Estes found sufficient evidence to require Landry Boullard to proceed to trial on one count each of attempted murder and being a felon in possession of a firearm and two counts of assault with a deadly weapon. Boullard is accused of stabbing the victim in the...

    Mike Huckabee had zero to do with the deaths this past week of four Seattle police officers. Radio hosts and bloggers who attempt to imply anything to the contrary are dishonest. Any who attempt to make political hay with it are actually "pundits who are not to be trusted." As one who clearly understands the election cycles of American politics can explain to you, making predictions three years before the next election is really silly. I was driving home one afternoon this past week sometime after 6pm EST and heard a fill-in host on a nationally syndicated talk show self-identifying...

    As the American people, elected officials, and commentators reflect on the heated immigration debate that came to a temporary close in the Senate this week many will ask, and have asked, why U.S. Senator John McCain (R., Ariz.) staked out a position that may, in retrospect, be seen as devastating to his presidential ambitions. I hope the American people, at least, step back from the obsessive play-by-play pre-season election analysis and reflect on Senator McCain’s actions for what I believe they were: One of the purest examples of political courage seen in Washington in a very, very long time.

    Some political observers say Sen. John Kerry’s presidential dreams were dashed months ago and his trip to terrorist-supporting Syria this week won’t do anything to change that. Before Kerry’s so-called botched joke, taken by many as an insult to American troops, he was a second-tier presidential contender, but the aftermath has knocked him out of the race for good, said Todd Domke, a Massachusetts GOP political strategist. “I don’t think people take him seriously enough to be upset about it,” Domke said. “It doesn’t really trigger more indignation because most people in the political world no longer consider him a...

    NEW YORK (AP) -- Barry Bonds used a vast array of performance-enhancing drugs, including steroids and human growth hormone, for at least five seasons beginning in 1998, according to a book written by two San Francisco Chronicle reporters. An excerpt of "Game of Shadows," which provides details of the San Francisco slugger's extensive doping program, appears in the March 13 issue of Sports Illustrated. Bonds, who testified before a San Francisco federal grand jury looking into steroid use by top athletes, repeatedly has denied using performance-enhancing drugs. Phone messages left by The Associated Press seeking comment from his attorney and...

    It is fitting in more ways than one that Ted Koppel devotes the final program in his 26-year reign on ABC's "Nightline" to the charming sociology professor who died from Lou Gehrig's disease and inspired Mitch Albom's "Tuesdays with Morrie." The three 1995 "Nightline" shows in which Koppel talked with Morrie Schwartz about living life and coping with death were among the most memorable of his 6,500 programs. Additionally, his last show, which airs at 11:35 tonight on Channel 7, will show "Nightline" fans what they will be missing with Koppel's departure: The time to devote to one captivating story...

    A Spanish mother has taken revenge on the man who raped her 13-year-old daughter at knifepoint by dousing him in petrol and setting him alight. He died of his injuries in hospital on Friday. Antonio Cosme Velasco Soriano, 69, had been sent to jail for nine years in 1998, but was let out on a three-day pass and returned to his home town of Benejúzar, 30 miles south of Alicante, on the Costa Blanca. While there, he passed his victim's mother in the street and allegedly taunted her about the attack. He is said to have called out "How's your...
