  • WILL JEB BUSH BE NEW COMEBACK KID?

    Florida Politics ^ | 2/8/16 | A.G. Gancarski
    Watching the Sunday talk shows, if I didn't "know" that Jeb Bush was considered washed up, I would have thought the other campaigns saw him as a real force in Tuesday's balloting. On ABC's "This Week," both Donald Trump and Marco Rubio laid into Jeb. Trump countered Bush scoring points on him in a Saturday night debate exchange on eminent domain. Rubio, meanwhile, felt the need to get to the right of Bush on abortions during "crisis pregnancy" scenarios. Bush has been left for dead by pundits in recent weeks and months. The seeming front runner status he enjoyed early...

    Rand Paul is out, so what does this mean for the realistic future of 2016? It means what I've been saying for a while, Senator Ted Cruz will take his campaign all the way. There is now pretending that Ted Cruz is a libertarian, he is as conservative as they come, in the traditional sense. The difference between Cruz and Paul though is this; Cruz never pretended to be something he wasn't, he has much adoration for libertarians, and has stated time and time again that when certain challenges come about, there is a need for a coalition.

    The school favored to host the George W.

Amid increasing outrage among Republicans over the use of eminent domain and other coercive measures to obtain private property for public projects, a case in Dallas County's 134th Civil District Court, which is set to begin on Tuesday, will determine whether the university violated its legal obligations to local homeowners in an effort to...

    ...Under relentless attack from New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who likened him to Barack Obama in 2008 as an inexperienced lightweight in over his head, Rubio found himself defaulting to the exact same sound bite four times over - and I mean exact. He said he wanted to dispel the "fiction that Barack Obama doesn't know what he's doing. He knows exactly what he's doing." Christie pushed back. And Rubio said: "This notion that Barack Obama doesn't know what he's doing is just not true. He knows exactly what he's doing." "There it is," Christie said, "the memorized 25-second speech."...

    Ohio Gov. John Kasich told Newsmax TV in an interview recorded Sunday morning that former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is getting desperate trying to say he isn't conservative. [...] Bush has said he is the only governor running for the GOP presidential nomination who has a conservative record. Asked by "Newsmax Prime" host J.D. Hayworth if that was a fair criticism, Kasich laughed. "We balanced more budgets than anybody around, cut more taxes than anybody in America," Kasich said, referring to his time in the U.S. House of Representatives where he served alongside Hayworth, who represented Arizona.

    At Saturday night's debate, Republicans wanted Marco Rubio to soar and Donald Trump to stumble. The opposite happened. The Republican establishment's fondest hope before Saturday night's debate was that Marco Rubio would deliver yet another solid (if unmemorable) debate performance, and that Donald Trump would fall on his face - compounding the damage he suffered in Iowa, and surrendering more, if not all, of his lead in New Hampshire over to Rubio, who's in second place and climbing. Instead, the establishment got almost exactly the opposite. The single biggest spoiler wasn't Trump, or even Ted Cruz, but New Jersey Governor...

    "Please clap," Jeb Bush wryly told a subdued crowd in New Hampshire last week, a moment that epitomizes his problem. The pundits call it lack of traction. Among too many voters it's lack of interest. If Jeb bombs in New Hampshire, he's done. Even if he doesn't quit the race, it's over. A year ago this scenario was unimaginable. He had more money, more brains, more connections and more governing experience than any other Republican wanting to be president. Like many people, I thought his nomination would be a slam dunk. The gaseous rise of Donald Trump upended everything, but...

Sources close to the former Florida governor say that his sixth-place finish in the Iowa caucus was even worse than they were expecting, but they're vowing to take the buckets of cash their candidate has collected and win big in the Sunshine State. "Bush did another swing through Florida and raised $500,000 at four events," says an insider close to the GOP long shot. We're told that cash was collected over the course of six hours the week...

    (CNN)--Jeb Bush's campaign is pouncing Marco Rubio's resume -- or lack thereof -- in a new, edgy TV ad that features Rick Santorum's now-famous interview and draws a contrast to Bush's record as former Florida governor. The 60-second ad, "Accomplishments," will start running in New Hampshire on Saturday. It shows the MSNBC "Morning Joe" interview of Santorum, who endorsed Rubio this week, struggling to list anything Rubio has done of significance in the Senate during an interview on Thursday.

    Donald Trump doesn't like being interrupted. At the Republican debate on Saturday, when Jeb Bush broke into one of Trump's answers, Trump turned around and shushed Bush. This was a continuation of how Trump has long handled Bush, often verbally bullying the Florida governor and characterizing him as weak. But this was also during a particularly tense conversation over eminent domain, in which the government takes over private property for other purposes. Trump defended the practice - specifically, calling it necessary to build roads and other infrastructure.

The group had planned to begin airing commercials on Monday in Virginia, Tennessee, Texas, Georgia, and Oklahoma — all states that hold primaries on March 1. But Right to Rise on Friday moved the start dates for the ads three days later, to Thursday, according to two media tracking sources. The shift appears small. But in altering the start date from Monday to Thursday, Right to Rise...

    According to recent FEC filings, top political donors at Goldman Sachs shifted their giving to Florida Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)79% in the last three months of last year. Jeb Bush had been the top recipient of donations from the Wall Street investment bank. Donations to Bush shrank to a trickle as his campaign faded. The most recent filing covers contributions and expenses between October and December. Marco Rubio’s campaign received $107,000 from Goldman Sachs executives. This number likely does not include donations to various Super PACs tied to Rubio’s candidacy. One of the bank’s lobbyists, Joseph Wall, is a campaign...

    Approximately 119 previous Jeb Bush donors gave to Marco Rubio for the first time in December. That’s part of an accelerating trend over the last few months as Bush’s candidacy slowly tanked during the fall, according to a BuzzFeed News data analysis of the most recent campaign finance reports.Because FEC filings are long and complex, we used a script that matched first name, last name, and zip code to identify the donors. That’s a decent rule of thumb, but not perfect; it doesn’t account, for example, for people who moved between ZIP codes, for who donors misspelled their names, or...

    MANCHESTER, New Hampshire---Jeb Bush didn't exactly name names when he made his prediction for which of his fellow candidates would finish in the top three in Iowa, but it was clear who he was talking about. "It's all about him and insulting his way to the presidency is the organizing principle," Bush said of Donald Trump. "The two other candidates that are likely to emerge in Iowa are two people that are backbenchers who have never done anything of consequence in their lives," he added, seemingly of Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz.

    Bloomberg News' former top editor, Al Hunt, says GOP candidate Jeb Bush has been "savaged" by Washington-outsider Donald Trump. Alongside various self-inflicted mistakes and hits from Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), "Jeb Bush suffered most from being savaged by Mr. Trump, the billionaire developer, who derided him, insulted his family ties and mocked him with the lasting epithet that he was 'low energy,'" Hunt writes in a column at the New York Times. Hunt explains that Bush missed an opportunity in the first half of 2015 to define himself as a reform candidate and to showcase conservative credentials that appeal to...

    WASHINGTON AND JERUSALEM - President Bush seemed poised early this week to put Palestinian statehood on the fast track. But by announcing a new policy of retaking Palestinian-controlled land in response to acts of terrorism, Israel appears to be changing the timetable if not the outcome of the Bush administration's efforts. Taken after this week's devastating suicide bombing in Jerusalem, the Israeli policy might be seen as a natural outgrowth of a strategy set forth by Prime Minister Ariel Sharon since he took office in March 2001. But the announcement also throws a wrench in US plans to...
