  • Joe Biden Unsure Of Whether He's Ready To Run For President

    Who would want to be in a position of having to defend the Obama administration day in and day out? Or make an enemy of him?

    Who can blame Biden for wanting no part of that?

    I am struck by the similarities between Dylann Roof and “Bryce Williams”.

    For both of them, race war was the goal.

    Neither was a conservative, and their victims were among constituencies that traditionally vote Democrat, blacks and journalists.

    Both were products of politicization of the race issue. Neither wanted the races to come together, they wanted to foment further division. Kind of like Obama.

    One wanted to be photographed wearing the Confederate flag, the other an Obama sticker.

    In the end, neither Roof nor Williams will precipitate the riots they both sought. Neither gives the MSM what it craves when incidents like these occur, the crazed white male card-carrying conservative racist killer.

    The fun part is that the old template is useless today. The media and DC echo chamber is showing its ultimate irrelevance, finally.

    Brilliant observation. The leftard media has never sought credibility, only relevance. Trump is, as you say, exposing their lack of relevance, and this is a wonderful thing to behold.

    Another problem for the democrats is that they are between a rock and a hard place when it comes to running on or against Obama’s record. If they run on Obama’s record, and promise more of the same, they'll get hurt by moderates and independents and likely most who have felt the sting of a poor economy or who are unhappy about Obamacare. On the other hand, if they run against Obama’s record they will risk the ire of their liberal base.

    So true.

    The party has no one to blame but themselves for allowing Obama to drive them over the cliff.

    Perhaps the pending demise of the Democrat Party is the only silver lining in the dark clouds of the last seven years.

    If anything illustrates that the destruction of the Democratic Party is now complete, it is this development.

    Won’t Joe have to run against Obama somewhat? At least he speaks without a hint of Negro dialect. And he’s clean. Maybe he can tan a lot and get a little darker.

    If he dives in too soon, he will alienate the Hillary-backing women who so badly want a female in the WH. He’ll be seen as the one who put the “shiv in her ribs”.

    Well done sir.

    Indeed something is happening here. A perfect storm perhaps?

    What’s so wonderfully exciting is that the entrenched pundit-GOPe class cannot figure it out either. Maybe they’re just missing the depth of the anger in this country.

    On another note, I’ve seen some comments that Trump seems to be giving the same speech over and over, and that people will tire of him. It’s possible that those of us who follow politics more closely may tire, but we’re not representative of the electorate.

    There’s an old adage in advertising that says “as an advertiser, you need to realize that you will tire of your ads long before your intended market will”. Repetition is important in selling anything. Just my two cents.

    wayoverontheright to Hojczyk

    Mr. Stephanopoulos, you haven’t heard the specifics? As you seem to me to be an employee of the Clinton campaign, someone there must have made you aware I have released a written, specific plan. You must not have read it, and this should be a requirement for you to even ask a question like you just asked.

    As to the costs, what does it cost with 11 million illegals in our country, not only being tolerated, but in many cases participating in our welfare programs, swelling the numbers in our jails, exacerbating the costs of our drug enforcement initiatives, and occupying positions that legal Americans could occupy? You haven’t heard specifics on that either, because our government doesn’t know, or care to know.

    Once employers are fined for hiring them, many of them will go back the way they came. I don’t see a huge cost to that. The cost reductions by virtue of this could be staggering. We won’t have to “round them up”, not all of them. I’m a business man, I’m used to devising methods to cut costs. That’s what my immigration plan is, it’s a cost cutting plan.

    The backup plan of combining the three amigo GOPe candidates in support of Jeb, now cannot even beat Trump. Wow. Trump finally ended the Bush dynasty. And now he can end the Clinton dynasty.....

    I think you're on to something here, and the Trump phenomenon is still growing.

    I've been a Cruz guy from the beginning, but this guy is winning me over because of the potential that's there to accomplish what you say in your post. Trump has broad appeal, to include some portions of staunch Dem constituencies.

    I'm moving to Trump because of two developments. Trump went to Pete Sessions to help craft his very good immigration plan, and Trump has gone to Steve Forbes and Arthur Laffer, I understand, to help him with a tax proposal. These developments mean he has very good instincts as to who he would hire in his administration.

    Also, I think there's a longing for the country to have a racial reconciliation, and for some reason, Donald Trump seems to have struck a nerve in the black community. Perhaps it's his stance on immigration somewhat, but it has to be more than that. He just connects with people without pandering to them as a group, maybe it's that simple.

    The Dems stepped in it when they went after Petraeus, convicted him, and fined him for something quite innocuous compared to what is already in the record to charge Hillary.

    How do they justify not charging her with a crime? Several crimes actually.

    If Justice doesn’t charger her, then Comey at the FBI will continue to pursue the e-mails, which in the end will be worse for the Dems, probably including Obama. This is why I think Justice will charge her.

    He is rebuilding the old Reagan coalition. We are seeing the left-right paradigm crumbling before our eyes.

    You're on to something here, no doubt. Pervasive anger and fear will always create the conditions for a paradigm change.

    The focus on this thread is on the Republican party being in "disarray". But perhaps what we are witnessing is the utter disintegration of the Democratic Party. Maybe that's all that's happening.

    I'm not sure it matters that the Trump coalition differs in composition from what was the Reagan coalition, because it's going to have the same effect.

    I think the story of the election will be how the traditional Dem party voting blocs simply stayed home.

    When the “center left” of the Democratic Party is mentioned, I think of Mark Warner and Evan Bayh. Whether they fit this description or not, it is curious that neither of them is making moves to run for the nomination.

    Has the party gone too far left for them?

    Are they too close to the center to get financial backing from the far left Dem donor class?

  • Despite Gloomy Predictions, Talk Radio Lives! Liberals, GOP Establishment Fume (Jeffrey Lord)

    wayoverontheright to cotton1706

    Marshall McCluhan, if he were still alive, might explain it this way:

    Radio is a single-sense medium. When seeking information, conservatives like to be isolated within one, and only one mode of perception at a time. Conservatives are more apt to be readers for the same reason.

    Liberals “feel”, thus they trust only a simulsensory inquiry. Radio is “incomplete” for them.

    Though capable of a-priori reasoning, liberals always allow their feelings to overrule. The marketplace tells us that, for liberals, the experience of sitting and listening to someone on the radio, even someone espousing and reinforcing their own beliefs, is a very tedious experience. We see just the opposite for those whose preferred mode of interacting is one sense at a time.

    This is why liberal content cannot possibly thrive in radio.

    In print, liberals can wallow within the sensory mosaic of newsprint, but not the non-fiction book, for the same reasons.

    Haven’t quite figured out yet why liberals seem to like reading comic books more than conservatives, and conservatives have a higher propensity to want to collect them.

  • Obama's Massive Failure Has Delivered Trump's Success

    08/12/2015 4:47:40 AM PDT · 8 of 22
    wayoverontheright to Jess Kitting

    Let’s entertain for a moment the possibility that the Democratic Party suffers a resounding defeat at the polls in 2016, precisely because of what the article says, that Barack Obama has been an utter failure.

    I’m for Ted Cruz, but I see some very good things, for now, accruing to our cause by virtue of the Donald Trump candidacy. Trump is for sure tuned into our anger and fear, but he is also shedding a bright light on liberalism itself, waking people, if you will, to the leftist ideology’s danger to all things we hold dear.

    I see the two black girls on “viewer’s view” whose videos have gone viral, singing a unique duet of a Republican’s virtues. I see evidence that they’re not the only ones being freed from the liberal plantation.

    I see young people converting to our side. I guess my question is, certainly my hope is, that the Obama presidency may have dealt a tremendous blow to liberalism itself, and that a true revolution of the people is underway.

    Is this also possible? Is America having an epiphany? From dissatisfaction with Obamacare to immigration, to a completely failed foreign policy, should we really be surprised if even the vaunted Dem party get-out-the-vote, vote buying and vote stealing doesn’t save the Democratic party for decades of banishment?

    Glenn Reynolds speaks of a “preference cascade” which normally comes from a significant emotional event. Anger and fear can be powerful agents of change, could it be this is what America has in its future?

    Has Obama wounded liberalism for some time, and has his time in office delivered the death blow to the Democratic Party?

    We have here a negotiating ploy, by a master negotiator.

    Donald Trump has calculated that Fox News needs Donald Trump more than Donald Trump needs Fox News. Would they have had 28 million viewers for their debate without him on the stage?

    How many eyeballs will be watching their competition this morning, that ordinarily would be watching Fox, for one reason and one reason only-Donald Trump? I’m not so sure the lefty media won’t go easier on him than Fox did. It’s going to be interesting to watch.

    Those at Fox probably won’t realize this until ratings come out, and they’ll realize they’ve screwed up. Look for Fox to capitulate, at some point, in some way, probably not today.

    I think Trump’s calculation is a correct one, we’ll see.

    Perhaps this is under the category of “be careful what you wish for”, but we’ve all been hoping for someone with and (R) by their name who would play rough with the media, and here we have someone.

    Great article. Spot on. Bravo!

    It’s pretty obvious the plan was to put Trump off his game at the outset with the “show of hands” question. I’m sure everyone noticed the audience’s obvious revulsion to the question itself. After Trump answered the question, there was more booing, largely interpreted by the MSM as the audience judging Trump’s answer adversely.

    I don’t think so. I think they were still angry at Fox for asking the question. Anyone else see it that way?

    Huckabee’s statement is demonstrably true. Iran wants to use nukes to annihilate Israel. Nukes make things hot, thus the “oven” reference.

    The leftist media is going to be as much a loser as Hillary, for trying to gin this up as yet another reason for a Republican candidate to step down. Trump showed the way, so I bet Huck will double down, it’s a win for him if he does.

    So the media loses credibility and relevance with this, which will hopefully cause more Republicans to grow some spine going forward.

    wayoverontheright to paulk

    Great answer Carly!

    There’s another line of thinking to attack Tapper’s question also.

    Mr. Tapper, I’m going to answer this question from a woman’s perspective, and I’m not trying to one-up you because you’re a man, but most men admit that we’re hard to figure out, so I’m going to utilize some information that most men won’t be aware of.

    First, if we have here a pregnant woman who wishes to abort her child, here are some things that have to have occurred prior to her becoming pregnant in the first place. She has to have had sex with a man. She has to have had unprotected sex with a man. She has to have had unprotected sex with a man, with whom she wishes not to have a child.

    Trust me, she’s worried about the possibility of being pregnant the very next day. Or worse, she’s not worried at all, because there’s always abortion.

    For those of us who are pro-life, we only see cruelty here. We only see crass disregard for a living, feeling child in Hillary Clinton’s position that the time limit to actually do something runs all the way up to the time when the baby leaves the hospital with the mother.

    We reward stupid decisions, that is, failing to utilize contraceptives, having sex with a man with whom one wishes not to have a child, and then procrastinating, all the while a zygote becomes a fetus, a fetus becomes a baby, in the womb. Who can argue the farther into the term the more pain for the aborted baby?

    So I ask you, why do Hillary and other proponents of abortion believe good is going to accrue to society somehow by engendering and fostering lazy thinking, poor personal hygiene, poor decisions, and procrastination in our citizens?

    The article says “Americans want Oblimination”.

    To lump all Americans together and say they want something is simplistic, and, well, wrong. There are many Americans who want what Obama is providing.

    But there’s another thing that America does want, even if many aren’t even aware that they want it, no, crave it. That would be someone in politics who actually answers questions.

    On both sides we have word twisters and semantic obscurantists who have perverted the conversation to the point I believe all Americans have had enough. Sure, it’s mostly liberals who have to hide what they really think, and for a while, it was deemed to be harmless.

    Now we have a media that sold us a bill of goods in Barack Obama, who lies openly, taking all of us for fools. I think this has, even if only subliminally in some quarters, become tedious in the extreme, and it wasn’t really noticed until Donald Trump came on the scene.

    He answers questions. Directly. He actually believes what he is saying. I think it is alluring and refreshing to anyone who has lived through the last few years of Washington watching, and it is the reason Donald Trump would be the one to defeat Hillary, who, even when she deigns to avail herself to questions, gives us words and twisted logic, but no answers.

    It is indeed a great article. I have to take issue with two things, however.

    First, though Donald Trump most certainly has a high opinion of himself, I don’t think he’s a narcissist. In business, your checks have to be good, and your word has to be good. Narcissists are liars, and simply won’t make it in business over any sustained period of time without ending up in jail. Narcissists cannot assess markets, trends, and what others are thinking sufficiently to make good investment decisions.

    Secondly, the author uses the word “rednecks” to describe NASCAR fans. I don’t think the author meant it to be pejorative, just descriptive, but it’s still not totally true, imho. I personnally am not a NASCAR fan, but I know people who are, and they aren’t rednecks at all.

    At any rate, still a very good article.

  • Israel and Saudi Arabia present united front over Iran deal

    Now the issues of the Sunni Arab states and Israel align.

    It would not surprise me if the Sunni states are begging Bibi to strike Iran’s nuke facilities. Perhaps they would even help with more than just permitting their air space to be used for a strike.

    My question is, who would align with Iran? Syria, perhaps, but what could Assad do? Putin? China? I doubt it.

    We may be seeing here the “unintended consequences” of the nuke deal, in that Iran is the one now isolated, not Israel, which was Obama’s intent all along.

    It’s precisely Donald Trump’s tone that is so energizing to those who hear him speak.

    Our country is angry, fearful, and tired. Tired in particular, of being deliberately divided by Barack Obama and his minions.

    Trump is angry when he speaks of the folly of current immigration policies.

    Trump seems truly fearful for our country.

    Thus, he connects. Others have said the same things he is saying, Trump says them while matching the emotions of those who hear him speak.

    Good try NBC. We’re so skeered.

    At this stage in the runup to the election, name recognition carries a lot of weight in polling. With her husband having been President for 8 years, and then another decade of fawning press, Hillary Clinton may have more name recognition at this stage than anyone who has ever run for the job.

    At this stage before Obama’s first election, he was a relative unknown. Heck he’s still an unknown.

    Donald Trump could win it all.

    What we have witnessed in the last few days seems to me to have very little to do with policies or issues. Though Donald Trump is surely unique, it's really not about his personality either.

    He's figured out how to tap into our emotions.

    And by “our” I'm not just referring to conservatives, or Republicans, or this or that voting bloc. It's pretty much all of us.

    Those emotions are anger, fear, and tedium. We're so, so weary and tired of being lied to, being divided, having our intelligence insulted and being utterly embarrassed on the world stage. Republicans feel that way too.

    Businessmen have to assess markets, trends, and more importantly changing opinions. Donald Trump has simply come to the conclusion that the people are craving what he is uniquely suited to provide. He senses our anger, he senses our fear, he senses the time is now.

    His main qualification? He's not a politician.

    I'm for Ted Cruz, and Ted Cruz and others have said some of the same things Trump is saying, but they haven't succeeded in bringing to the surface our emotions the way Trump has.

    Why not?

    Perhaps we have become distrustful of all who are “qualified” for political office. Maybe we've reached a point of such hopelessness-blacks, whites, men, women, old, young-that we'd embrace anyone who seems to have no political consideration behind what he is saying. Trump is the anti-politician, or he seems that way to us. It's refreshing.

    Trump is also the anti-Obama.

    His leadership qualities, his willingness to reveal what he really thinks and who he really is....isn't this part of what we're all so angry about, when we think of all politicians nowadays? Even Obama’s backers sense he is a wimp. Donald Trump has an awful lot of testosterone, a not insignificant quality when we next decide who to be put into the White House.

    From Hope and Change to Sick and Tired. And this will get him elected.

    Trump's got us pegged. And he's going to continue to give us what we crave.

    He'd become the first President to move into a smaller house.

    Some conservative groups have alleged that they were unfairly audited and investigated after applying for tax exemption.

    Alleged? What is known already proves this beyond a shadow of doubt. Just not in a court of law. Yet.

  • Demand to see Donald Trump in Phoenix off the charts (today)

    wayoverontheright to Cringing Negativism Network

    The immigration issue has been a loser for Republicans because they tried to strike a balance between sensible policies and (imagined) latino sensibilities.

    Then Trump comes along and shows them what their stance should have been all along. Only one, to my knowledge, backed Trump, and that is Ted Cruz.

    The elephant in the room here is the black vote. Blacks clearly have the most to lose from continued lunacy as relates immigration. Votes can be had on this issue in this particular voting bloc, in 2016.

    Today we’ll see a massive outpouring of conservatives in Phoenix to express their opposition to current immigration policies. Will it wake up the other candidates? I doubt it. They’re too focussed on latino sensibilities.

    Even within the entrenched latino community there’s sentiment for closing the borders, and Trump and Cruz seem to be the only ones to realize this.

    If anything, Bernie Sanders is to the right of Barack Obama.

    Sanders’ vision for America is Sweden, Norway, Denmark. Obama’s vision for America is Venezuela. Maybe Cuba.
