Fox News has 2 candidates going nowhere.
The polls will come out and no-one will care about Fiorina.
Part of the reason Palin and even Ron Paul went as far as they did in polling & support from the GOP base is how much the media hated them and wanted them banned.
The media loves Rand and Fiorina and wants them to dupe conservatives.
Exodus 11 And it came to pass in those days, when Moses was grown, that he went out unto his brethren, and looked on their burdens: and he spied an Egyptian smiting an Hebrew, one of his brethren. 12 And he looked this way and that way, and when he saw that there was no man, he slew the Egyptian, and hid him in the sand.
We are witnessing one of the strongest campaigns ever run. This is the definition of winning ugly and will continue to get uglier almost to the point of being a Democrat campaign where they accuse the opponent of killing children. They would accuse them of killing babies, but that hits a bit to close to home. We are watching Donald Trump fighting the establishment from both sides of the fence with vigor and passion. Will he cross the line occasionally, yes and that will too be a breath of fresh air in poll tested phrases and vanilla responses engineered to say exactly nothing.
To imagine that twenty four million people turned in to watch a Republican debate is beyond the scope of reality in a world of dull and drab, yet Trump brought them in. The truly amazing thing is that the FOX liberals squandered that opportunity and blew it up into a get Trump night. We learned nothing about how or why he would build the border fence, only show us your proof. We heard nothing about the sanctuary cities or the killing of innocent Americans, we only watched mediots preen and soapbox at how Trump is an evil sexist, capitalistic monster who should not be on that stage even though he was who brought all those viewers to watch. It was a truly bizarre strategy from FOX to decide they were going to be the gatekeeper while alienating every Repub watching which is going to cost them millions and millions of viewers.
Meghan Kelly had been hinting all week that she had some real doozies and boy did she. After going after Trump on a live and breaking story of how he raped his wife twenty five years ago and then turned out false, she has been on a crusade to destroy him. How do you put someone on the debate who is out to destroy someone and you are supposed to be fair and balanced? Better yet, how do you put every Trump hating consultant, pollster and then follow it up with the head of the DNC, but not the head of the RNC? This was FOX news trying to destroy the anti-establishment candidate while propping up poor little Jeb and it backfired magnificently.
Kellys worst question of the night was not her idiotic question about Trumps catfight with Rosie where Meghan apparently made up some sexual innuendo; it was her pro-abortion question to Walker. To ask him if you would rather a woman die than abort was straight out of the abortion school of cliché. In a world of babies surviving prematurely in miraculous times and C-Section surgery are there any complications that can kill the mother from childbirth which requires an abortion? There are far more mothers dying from abortion complications than childbirth and she pulls that emotion card? Why do abortion complication deaths not bother Meghan and her abortion supporters? Why do they not have a problem with chopping up those babies, but are so aghast that a mother may die when one likely does not happen and the other happens thousands a times a day? She has an extreme case of selective outrage on this one. Guess most of us thought wrong of where FOX news stands on abortion and most other Conservative issues.
So we have Trump attempting to walk across this minefield of establishment explosives. Of anyone who has the most to lose it is a guy whose name is known worldwide as wealth and gold and he is willing to get into the most dangerous arena on the planet. As a novice to this political game how do you make it from The Donald to President Trump when you have people like Meghan Kelly and the establishmedia as well as the Three Pillars (media, academia and the DNC) out to stop you? It is actually quite simple and he is a genius that has gotten a hold of it whether he knows it or not.
As a Repub who does not have the advantage of the Three Pillars you have two choices. You can either win ugly or lose graciously and he has chosen the former. Is he going to say things that make you cringe and give the other side ammunition, yes and that is how you win. He has shown that it does not matter if you have good news or bad news just make sure you dominate the airwaves and get the name spelled right. It did not matter that the FOX inquisitors were trying to destroy him and he was fighting back, he had to be able to survive it and get in a couple shots which he did. It doesnt matter that he made a misstatement about Meghan bleeding out the eyes and misspoke a throwaway line, whatever, he hates her and who can blame him with her abuse of her power. The terminally offended PC crowd are going to be outraged, but he just has to hold his ground and watch his numbers rise. This is called winning ugly and you throw everything back at them and do not let anything stand and he is doing it brilliantly and will only get better as his army builds.
His next debate will be far better than this one since there will be no sneak attacks available. He will know what to expect and be more on his game. He simply needs to ignore stupid gotcha questions and answer the question he wants to answer. When they ax you about your bankruptcies, turn it into a financial question and say we need to get back on a smarter financial path or this entire country could go bankrupt and it will not turn into the Trump Empire but Greece. If they ask about sexism questions just say that the world is too PC and go into the Sanctuary City issue. Just ignore the gotcha and get them which Trump is a master. Get down into the mud and bury them in it or lose graciously with Bush.
His most important step right now is moving on from FOX which has to be a huge disappointment since he has so many good friends there but, he has to move on. He is getting the winning ugly part and fighting back like a NYer, he has to get a ground game. The most important thing he can do now is building that army to knock the doors and get the voters out. Trump leading in the opinion polls means nothing if you do not get your people out to actually get their ballots in and counted in the actual election. He needs someone who understands targeting and efficiency like our teams did who won numerous campaigns we should have never won in a Blue State. He needs to find some people who understand this piece of the puzzle since nothing else really matters and the establishment has no clue how it works which is how you beat them.
The best thing he has going to defeat the establishment is he does not need commercials. He can run this on a shoestring with a few immigration rape and murder commercials to get his people motivated and use the media against itself for the rest. As they are digging his grave he can keep getting the immigration message out and gaff his way to victory. He and Cruz are the two anti-DC candidates and a pairing of them would be tough to beat as they both think alike and are equally hated. If they are both not afraid to win ugly they could be an unbeatable pair and get this country turned around and begin to get out of its Marxist grip.
There are only two choices for Repubs, win ugly like Reagan and Bush II did or lose graciously like Romney. If you choose the latter you will still have your dignity and a pat on the head from the Dem winner, but you will always wonder what would have happened if you had the courage to do what Trump is doing. It may not be pretty, but people are starving for the truth and common sense. They are tired of being twisted into a pretzel for fear of offending anyone or anything and when they hear some common sense like close the border they remember what it was like to live normal lives without fear of wrongthink. When they hear the truth they come out from the shadows and remember what America used to be and wonder if it could ever be again. Once they begin thinking it then they start believing and that is what winning ugly is all about. It may be an ugly slog for a year, but winning against the establishment makes it all worth it.
Pray America is waking

Sarc: Gee I thought Fox would have Cruz and Trump on, their favorites.
I wonder what NAACP hate speech can be drummed up today.
Cruz and Carson, MIA, thus, the MSM must be scared of them, and of course, Trump.
Carson is on FTN.
I would like to hear the candidates discuss how they’d go after the EPA band how the candidates value the environment which is already the best in the world and getting 5% cleaner is not worth valuable citizens’ family income losses and coal industry loss. I want to hear them say how the Left hates these people and that the Left isn’t compassionate.
Carson vs the NAACP bigot is the ticket this morning.
Not watching Fox. Chris Wallace is just Myrdoch’s wh*re.
Megyn’s the Doozy Floozie
I’d wager DT’s campaign manager wasn’t thrilled with the choice of words sleaze and buffoon - and I would rather DT call Erickson “establishment” or “phony” or something like that...I.e., less “muddy”
Morning AB, All.
As always, thank you AB for doing this thread. And thank yon commenters who keep me up to date.
Of course I watched the debates last week.
And if I were to pick, all things considered and based on impressions and overall demeanor.....I’d pick Ben Carson as the next US President.
But didn’t Jeb Bush do a wonderful job....SAID NO ONE....EVER!
Carly Fiorina was right up there.
I agree. Doesn’t need to change his targets but he does need to stop the name-calling.
Love the video. The Donald’s back is well covered.
Oh....once upon a time I was pretty good friends with Eric Ericson....he wanted me to write for RedState.
I liked the guy but didn’t he turn out to be a rollover for he establishment?
They are so ready to throw Trump out of there. They need to give it up.
