  • The Republican Candidates Let Donald Trump Win

    New York Mag ^ | 02/10/2016 | Jonathan Chait
    What made this response all the more baffling is that Trump was clearly hoping to pull off just the kind of debate that transpired. He was more subdued, less outlandish, and far, far nicer than he has appeared in any previous debate. He was boring. His opening and closing statements sounded — unusually for him — as though he had practiced them. He appealed to party unity. He sought to rise above his competitors not by belittling them, as usual, but through magnanimity. In reality, Trump is the same uninformed clown he always has been. His response on every question...

    Holy Mitt, what a meltdown. Add this one to Donald Trump's lengthening list of firsts: He's forced a Republican Party reckoning overdue for years, all in a few days. It took the Trump-dominated Super Tuesday contests to awaken Republican leaders to the fact that the darkest elements of the party's base, which many of them have embraced or exploited, are now threatening their party.... At one point, Mr. Romney said: "Mr. Trump is directing our anger for less than noble purposes. He creates scapegoats of Muslims and Mexican immigrants"--with absolutely no sense of self-awareness. Mr. Romney himself played to the...

    Two remarkably impressive candidates (and Ben Carson, who’s whatever) made dazzling impressions Wednesday night at CNN’s town hall. Meanwhile, Donald Trump rode in his clown car for an hour on MSNBC. Marco Rubio staged a master class on reformist conservative policy in one of the most substantive presentations on American politics ever broadcast on television. For his part, Ted Cruz eloquently staked his claim to the mantle of anti-Establishment conservative confrontationalism and hammered home his arguments against Rubio’s supposed prevarications on immigration and Trump’s ludicrous lawsuit against him for running an attack ad. Meanwhile, sitting with Joe Scarborough and Mika...

    On Tuesday, talk radio host Glenn Beck accused the Tea Party supporters of GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump of being racists. While he questioned whether Trump’s supporters are genuine Tea Partiers, Beck said of them, “If you were a Tea Party person, then you were lying. You were lying. It was about Barack Obama being black. It was about him being a Democrat.” Although he later identified fellow talk show host Sean Hannity as a Tea Party supporter who thinks Trump is “a great guy,” Beck said that he simply disagrees with Hannity about Trump. Beck’s comments came as part...

    Glenn Beck lied. Again. After apologizing for calling Sarah Palin a “clown” on Thursday, Beck, who has acknowledged that Americans actually view him as a “clown” and a “monkey,” claimed in a blog post that he and the Palins have not had a relationship since the assassination attempt on Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-AZ) in 2011. Beck wrote that he suspected people were telling the Palins lies about him to drive a wedge between them.

Sounds like my theory was largely correct: It’s not just his personal falling-out with Palin, which he elaborates on in his new Facebook post, or her embrace of the progressive Trump that’s bothering him, it’s the whole damned discombobulating phenomenon of Trumpmania among the tea party and its sympathizers.Especially its sympathizers in conservative talk radio. I do not understand her position and love of Trump. He is clearly a progressive, not a small government constitutionalist…But he is also a bully, sexist, cruel, an ego manic and narcissist in ways that makes Barack...

I'll turn him on and invariably, he'll be selling gold, emergency food rations, (I guess he's never heard of bottled water and canned food) or inside joking with his cohorts. Occasionally, his dry drunk surfaces like it did yesterday, when out of the blue, he calls Sarah Palin, "A Clown" because of the speech she gave at the Iran Nuclear rally and that she supports Trump. Then today, he increased his rhetoric on Trump referring to his speech at the Iran Nuclear rally a "Clown...

Talking to a local Fox affiliate in Phoenix, Takei snarled that the second African American on the Supreme Court is unqualified: "This man does not belong on the Supreme Court.

    Via the Free Beacon, I think it was Dan McLaughlin of Red State who tweeted after last week’s SSM decision was released, “Now the contest begins to see who’ll be the angriest winner.” His point was that, for a movement that’s been unstoppable culturally over the past 10 years, there’s a curiously strong impulse towards nastiness in some lefties’ reaction to each new victory. With this remark from George Takei, I think it’s safe to say the contest is now over.

The American public is concerned with three major aspects of the law: the access to coverage, the affordability of coverage, and how the changes will benefit them. On all three counts, the ACA will fail to live up to the promises made...

But his good fortune changed after his speech at the National Prayer Breakfast in February, the former Johns Hopkins neurosurgeon said Monday night at an event with business leaders and elected officials in Alabama. Alabama’s Yellow Hammer News tweeted Dr. Carson’s remarks from the annual Business Council of Alabama Chairman’s Dinner: “I had my first encounter with the IRS this year, unsurprisingly after the Prayer Breakfast.”

    Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff used her position as the opening speaker at the U.N. General Assembly to accuse the United States of violating human rights and international law through espionage that included spying on her email. Rousseff had expressed her displeasure last week by calling off a high-profile state visit to the United States scheduled for October over reports that the U.S. National Security Agency had been spying on Brazil. In unusually strong language, Rousseff launched a blistering attack on U.S. surveillance, calling it an affront to Brazilian sovereignty and "totally unacceptable."

    The White House and the Pentagon have repeatedly ruled out "boots on the ground" in Syria, but Defense Department officials were less certain Thursday on whether U.S. military personnel might be sent to help secure or destroy Syria's chemical weapons.

This news is in line with a report released earlier this week that showed black homeownership levels are at an eighteen year low.
