    As Matthew Continetti remarked on Twitter, whoever handles Team Cruz' campaign ads deserves a raise - assuming this comes directly from the campaign, as MSNBC reported today. While Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders argued over the record of Henry Kissinger and the foreign policy of the Nixon administration, the Cruz campaign launched a pitch-perfect shot at Hillary in this Office Space spoof. Rather than destroying a printer, however, "Hillary" and two aides destroy an e-mail server while the soundtrack raps out, "Damn, it feels good to be a Clinton": ...

    Weekly Standard ^ | February 12, 2016 | JEFFREY H. ANDERSON
    Among the two candidates whose results look at all like those of an eventual GOP presidential nominee, polling suggests that Ted Cruz would do significantly better than Donald Trump in the general election. According to the Real Clear Politics average of recent polls, Cruz would fare 5 points better versus Hillary Clinton than Trump would. Polling has consistently shown Cruz to have an advantage over Trump in this regard: Fox News found that Cruz would fare 4 points better than Trump, beating Clinton by 7 points (50 to 43 percent) to Trump's 3 (47 to 44 percent).

    There are quite a few rumors floating around in social media about Presidential Candidate Ted Cruz. Americans are used to the mainstream media lying about Ted Cruz (see here, here & here for just some examples.) But it is particularly painful when the lies come from supposed truth-tellers. The largest culprits starting and perpetuating anti-Cruz falsehoods are sundance of the Conservative Treehouse and Dianne Marshall of the Marshall Report. They blatantly lie, or tell cherry-picked half truths, which are promptly disseminated in social media by an army of bullies who are seemingly not interested in civil debate. Why create false...

And in some ways, he may have been an overlooked winner of the night."Washington insiders were convinced our wave of support would break in the Granite State," the Texas senator thundered. "The men and women of New Hampshire proved them wrong."The TVs flanking him showed the results; he was edging out former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush. Cruz finished with just under 12 percent, good enough in the crowded field for third place.All the attention out of New Hampshire...

Cruz's presidential campaign is set to announce Thursday that he now has the support of nearly half the Republicans in the Texas Legislature: 11 senators and 43 representatives.

Anyone with that opposition must be formidable. That he is. Campaigning against Federal ethanol subsidies in Iowa, a major corn producing state, and against all poll predictions, Cruz defeated the media's favourite, Donald Trump, receiving more votes than any Republican candidate ever had.

On the campaign trail, Ted Cruz has vowed to rescind President Barack Obama's controversial executive actions on immigration - but it's two of his former aides who could actually kill it. Scott Keller and Chip Roy - who served in top roles in Cruz's Senate office - are now litigators on behalf of Texas, leading the lawsuit against Obama's unilateral actions, which are at the cornerstone of the president's immigration legacy. The duo's positions also underscore Cruz's enduring influence and reach...

Rick Tyler told CNN's Erin Burnett that Trump says "nothing about immigration, nothing about job creation, nothing about what's going on in North Korea, nothing about ISIS. I mean this is amazing." Tyler said Cruz is running a campaign about conservative issues and that Trump fails to discuss the issues because he isn't a true conservative. Both Trump and Cruz are eying key primaries in southern states starting with South Carolina, which...

He has continued to flounder around. A candidate with so much potential has instead become a whiner because his own campaign committed gross incompetence regarding his trip for clean clothes. Instead of admitting it, he has whined about Ted Cruz all week. Carly Fiorina has had ample opportunity to shine. But she has repeatedly gotten on debate stages only to enter the witness protection program immediately upon...

The only people who would actively peddle it are the misinformed, the unintelligent, or the dishonest - none of which is a good quality in a Presidential candidate.

    MSNBC’s “Hardball” host Chris Matthews argued that “some people’s words are encouraging this kind of behavior” and “Carly Fiorina seems to be” “enjoying it” while discussing the shooting at a Planned Parenthood in Colorado Springs on Monday.

    Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina on Sunday called President Obama “delusional” to think climate change is the country’s biggest terror threat and criticized liberals and others trying to make a political statement about the recent Planned Parenthood shootings.“That’s delusional for President Obama, Hillary Clinton or anyone else to say that climate change is the biggest security threat,” Fiorina told “Fox News Sunday.”Obama has made several speeches in which he has said climate change is “an urgent and growing threat,” including his 2015 State of the Union address in which he said: "No challenge poses a greater threat to future generations...

    Appearing on November 29th Fox News Sunday, 2016 Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina slammed President Barack Obama and his allies as “delusional” for continually pushing the notion that climate change is a chief national security threat for the United States and the world at-large.  Fiorina was asked about the issue by host Chris Wallace in context of this upcoming week’s United Nations climate change summit in Paris and the argument that addressing climate change makes the world safer and rebukes Islamic terrorists.

    The endorsements continue to roll in for Ted Cruz, who's also surging in the polls. Last week, two hundred faith leaders endorsed him for president. They were followed yesterday by actor and producer James Woods. Woods -- who's best known for his roles in Once Upon a Time in America, Casino, and White House Down -- says he decided to support Cruz after a forty minute-long telephone conversation with the senator: [TWEET] Woods went on to explain that Cruz could count on his support because he "has a strong posture in foreign policy and an unvarnished view of the domestic...

    As seen on On the Record with Greta Van Susteren Carly Fiorina went "On The Record" tonight and slammed President Obama for threatening to veto a bill aimed at improving the screening process for Syrian and Iraqi refugees coming to the U.S. Fiorina told guest host Kimberly Guilfoyle that it's "unbelievable" that our commander-in-chief would threaten to veto a common sense bill. The GOP presidential contender said Obama shouldn't be making threats and castigating Republicans during speeches in Turkey and Manila, but standing up and offering leadership when the country needs it. "Look, specifically what we need to do is...

    Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina, who surged in polls this fall, has seen her support wilt as backers across the board have shifted from her to retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson. It's part of the candidate merry-go-round, as voters seek the best insurgent champion in the GOP field, much as they did in 2012 when they tested all the alternatives to eventual nominee Mitt Romney. This time, those finicky voters have a more complicated task: They want an insurgent but one who isn't billionaire businessman Donald Trump, who draws his own unique base of support. A former technology company executive, Mrs....

    Wednesday on the “Simon Conway Show,” Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson said the United States should establish a no-fly zone at the Turkish-Syrian border and shoot down any Russian plane that enters it. Carson said, “If they do come into that area—after you have given them adequate warning, after we’ve talked to Putin—you shoot them down. Absolutely.” he added, “Whatever happens next, we deal with it. But we can’t continue backing down because in the long run, that will hurt us.”

    Boy, that Carly Fiorina boom really took off! At the debate Tuesday night, Fiorina slammed Donald Trump for saying he had met Russian President Vladimir Putin in the '60 Minutes' greenroom, noting that she'd met Putin at 'a meeting' not a 'greenroom.' The audience, which seemed a little suspicious to me from the beginning, responded with — I'm quoting the transcript — '(LAUGHTER) (APPLAUSE) (CHEERING).' A quick Google search revealed that Fiorina had recently told Jimmy Fallon that she met Putin — IN A GREENROOM. As a big tech executive, you'd think she'd remember Google. After boasting that American Express...

    First, the moderators were unintrusive, so they were not part of the story. Therefore, an excellent job -- about as well as any moderators could do, and certainly better than most. Let's take the candidates in alphabetical order. Bush: I feel for him. His eyes seem anxious and overly polite, his smile unsure, and such is his demeanor. It's a pity, for his governorship in Florida was sound enough. But his campaign is slowly dying. Carson: He was very strong this time, but he still comes across as uninformed and inexperienced outsider. People believe that Washington is the problem, but...
