    WMUR-TV ^ | April 18, 2015 | John DiStaso
    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)NASHUA, N.H. —Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker closed the NHGOP’s First-in-the-Nation Republican Leadership Summit on Saturday night with a call for “common sense” leadership to promote “big and bold” ideas. Walker, who has been leading the GOP presidential field in recent New Hampshire polling, told several hundred Republicans who remained for the separately ticketed Saturday night dinner that if he runs for president, he would apply the same principles and approach that he said has turned around his state’s economy. Introduced by former Gov. John H. Sununu, Walker said he decided to run for governor because he and his wife wanted...

    Donald Trump has made no bones about it: he’s not a fan of Hillary Clinton. In a Thursday night tweet sent from Trump’s Twitter account to his nearly 3 million followers, Trump quoted a Twitter user questioning how a Hillary Clinton presidency could “satisfy America” if she is unable to “satisfy her husband.”

    Real estate mogul Donald Trump might want to check whatever reflex makes him compulsively retweet his supporters' #Trump2016 messages. The potential presidential hopeful on Thursday shared a fan's tweet that read "If Hillary Clinton can't satisfy her husband what makes her think she can satisfy America?" Trump deleted the tweet, but not before actor Lenny Jacobson got a screenshot of it: The deleted tweet was also archived on a Boston Glove live blog that tracked tweets from presidential hopefuls during a New Hampshire Republican Party leadership summit. The tweet Trump quoted apparently originated with Sawyer Burmeister, a competitive equestrian who...

  • How Do we Decide Who Is a ‘Real’ Candidate for President?

    03/26/2015 11:06:28 AM PDT · by nickcarraway · 37 replies
    Ted Cruz was not the first person to officially declare his presidential candidacy when he announced on Monday. Scores of people are running just as officially as the junior senator from Texas, as measured by their having filled out the proper form with the Federal Election Commission. So why do we consider Cruz a "real" candidate and those other 200-odd candidates not worth mentioning? Is it viability? Few people think Cruz has much of a shot at the Republican nomination. The Upshot's Nate Cohn makes the case against his doing so pretty concretely. We looked at the strength of his...

    Donald Trump remains interested in birth certificates. The reality television host, real estate magnate, and serial almost-presidential candidate who repeatedly demanded that President Barack Obama produce proof that he was born in Hawaii, turned his attention to Sen. Ted Cruz on Monday. In an interview with MyFoxNY, Trump said that Cruz's birthplace, Canada, could be a problem for the Texan's presidential bid. “Well he’s got, you know, a hurdle that nobody else seems to have at this moment," said Trump. "It’s a hurdle and somebody could certainly look at it very seriously. He was born in Canada … if you...

    Cue the helicopter. Cue the podium. Cue the hair. Cue the bucolic Granite State backdrop. Trump is back in New Hampshire today, and he’ll have you know that he is seriously considering running for president. Seriously. Think boardroom seriousness — “You’re fired!” and all that. Sure, he also meant it four years ago when the Trump-o-copter delivered him to take a victory lap for forcing President Obama to fork over his birth certificate. And he meant it in 1987, 1988 and 2000. But this time is different, he’ll tell you. In truth, it is not different, and he is not...

    Donald Trump will launch a presidential exploratory committee Wednesday, the eve of the business mogul’s return to New Hampshire. A senior adviser tells the New Hampshire Union Leader that Trump will not be renewing his contract with NBC for the reality television “Apprentice” series. Combined with staff hires, Trump’s announcement that he will form an exploratory committee for the first time is a sign the billionaire is seriously considering running for the Republican nomination. Trump’s statement on forming the exploratory committee hints at the razzle-dazzle to come for a turbo-charged personality known for skewering the political establishment. He refers to...

    Donald Trump's kids and Paris Hilton's siblings were born rich. That gave them a big advantage in life. Unfair! Inequality in wealth has grown. Today the richest 1 percent of Americans own a third of the assets. That's not fair! But wherever people are free, that's what happens. Some people are luckier, smarter or just better at making money. Often they marry other wealthy, well-connected people. Over time, these advantages compound. Globalization increases the effect. This month's issue of Forbes says the world now has 1,826 billionaires, and some struggle to find enough parking places for their jets. President Obama...

    A question I often am asked is: "Who would you bet on to win the presidency?" Personally, I don't bet on politics, but here's my current take on the 2016 presidential race—with, of course, the caveat that we don't know which campaigns will turn out the best in terms of organization, strategy, tactics, or execution, much less which candidates will step on land mines along the way. The Democratic nomination appears fairly straightforward. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is now the prohibitive favorite. If her early stumbles during her book tour, or remarks like the one she made about...

He failed,” Trump bellowed, drawing cheers from the riled-up audience at the Freedom Summit. “He choked. He had that election won.” Trump was equally blunt in assessing former President George W. Bush’s younger brother. “You can’t have Bush,” Trump said. “The last thing we need is another Bush.”

Twenty-three Democrats have been mentioned as a candidate or are eyeing a bid, according to an analysis by The Hill. The GOP side has 42. Most of the people on this list won’t run, and some have adamantly claimed that they’re not interested. But many politicians have changed their minds on seeking the White House. Before mounting his 2008 bid, then-Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) said he...

The New York real estate mogul donated $5,000 to the Texas senator's leadership PAC during the first quarter, according to a filing with the Federal Election Commission. Cruz's PAC, called the Jobs, Growth & Freedom Fund, took in far fewer receipts than the PACs of his potential White House rivals, Sens. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., and Rand Paul, R-Ky. It took in only about $23,000 in contributions and then added approximately another $120,000 in transfers from other committees and rebates. Comparatively,...

    Potential 2016 presidential contender Donald Trump spoke to ABC’s Jonathan Karl Sunday morning and reignited the birther issue that he helped spark back in 2011, questioning the legitimacy of Barack Obama’s birth certificate and wondering whether Ted Cruz, who was born in Canada, was eligible to president.“Was there a birth certificate?” Trump asked. “You tell me. Some people say that was not his birth certificate. I’m saying I don’t know. Nobody knows. And you don’t know, either, Jonathan. You’re a smart guy, you don’t know, either.”“I’m pretty convinced he was born in the United States,” Karl said.“Ah! Pretty convinced,”...

    <p>Donald Trump said the Republican party will lose elections if it reforms the nation’s entitlement programs and will hand Democrats 11 million votes if Congress grants citizenship to illegal immigrants, likening the reform efforts to a “suicide mission.”</p> <p>Mr. Trump has been a fierce critic of the Obama administration and established himself as a voice in Republican ranks when he badgered Mr. Obama to release his long-form birth certificate to prove that he was born in the United States. More recently, Mr. Trump has taken aim at the administration’s decision to halt White House tours because of the automatic budget cuts, known as sequesters, that kicked in earlier this month.</p>

    Media mogul Donald Trump slammed Beyonce's Super Bowl performance as 'ridiculous' and inappropriate. Appearing on the 'Howard Stern Show,' Trump said the singer was too 'suggestive' for a national audience. 'When Beyonce was thrusting her hips forward in a very suggestive manner, if someone else would have done that it would have been a national scandal,' Trump, 66, said. 'I thought it was ridiculous ... I thought it was not appropriate.' Trump said he thought it was strange that no one else has criticized her for her scandalous dance moves. 'There's been no mention of it,' he said. 'So obviously,...

    Donald Trump, the billionaire American real estate developer and television celebrity, on Tuesday endorsed Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu for reelection. In a video released Tuesday, Trump is seen calling Netanyahu “an amazing person, and an exceptional person,” deserving of the support of every Israeli. The effort to get Trump to endorse Netanyahu was the idea of Jonny Daniels, an Israeli public relations agent who counts among his clients many American celebrities and business officials in Israel. Daniels asked Trump to endorse Netanyahu and the Likud, in order to stress the importance of reelecting the Prime Minister for Israelis. Daniels said...

    Snip snip snip. What's that sound? The sound of over 558,000 scissors at the ready. If Macy's doesn't cut its ties to Donald Trump, over half-a-million signers of an online petition will be urged to cut up their Macy's store credit card, the creator of the petition, Angelo Carusone, told TODAY this morning. Carusone, 30, said he started the petition after seeing a new Macy's ad that mixed in footage from "Miracle on 34th Street" with cameos from several of the faces behind Macy's celebrity brands. There's Justin Bieber, Martha Stewart, Taylor Swift, and then there's Donald Trump, skeptical that...

    If Donald Trump still has that $5 million (the offer he made for President Obama's college and passport records) jangling loose in his pockets, perhaps he could help the country address its lingering doubts about the fairness of the presidential election: $5 million to whomever can document irrefutably that voter fraud was used to swing the election to Obama. ...

    Detroit, Nov. 3 [35 minutes ago] (UPI) - A Chrysler executive has apologized for his language but stands by a tweet calling out Donald Trump for saying U.S. Jeep production is moving to China. Ralph Gilles, Chrysler Group LLC vice president for product design, was responding to a Trump online posting that said "(President Barack) Obama is a terrible negotiator. He bails out Chrysler and now Chrysler wants to send all Jeep manufacturing to China -- and will!" ... The company said it plans to produce Jeeps in China for sale in China, but is expanding Jeep production in the...

    Donald Trump is offering to donate $5 million to charity--just so long as President Barack Obama digs up and releases his passport and college records in the next week (to The Donald’s “satisfaction,” of course). So this is what it takes to get the purported billionaire to act like a philanthropist? As reported in these pages, the real estate developer is the country’s least charitable billionaire ...

    Ouch. Not only was Donald Trump’s bombshell NOT about the Obama family’s Wahhabist fundraising empire but it fell woefully short. When someone tells you he has a bombshell that could turn the election, it needs to be something more than a proposal that will never be accepted. Ah, but wait a minute. In Trump’s “major” announcement (video below), he pledged to cut Barack Obama a check for $5 million to a charity of the president’s choice. Isn’t the Mama Sarah Children Foundation a charity? Barack Obama’s step-grandmother – along with countless Kenyan students who could then go to Saudi Arabia...
