  • Morning Joe: Bill Clinton's 'Hatchet' Job on Bernie 'Painful,' Cringe-worthy

    02/08/2016 6:38:14 AM PST · by governsleastgovernsbest · 26 replies
    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Bill Clinton has lost his fastball. That's an emerging theme from this campaign season, and it was on glaring display on today's Morning Joe. Introducing a clip of Clinton [dressed like a lumberjack] attacking Bernie Sanders in New Hampshire, Mika Brzezinski said the ex-prez had picked up the "hatchet"--not a good image for a would-be statesman. After the clip aired, Joe Scarborough called it "painful." Mike Barnicle said it was a "cringe" moment, with Chuck Todd seconding the assessment. View the video here.

    Political prognostication is an uncertain art, never more so than in the New Hampshire primaries of 2016. On the eve of the elections, equipped as I am with all the most scientific polling and profoundest opinions of the professional pundits, I still wouldn't place a bet on the electoral outcome of the race. On other hand, I'd be willing to put a few dollars on the proposition that, when the history of the 2016 presidential race is written, the past week in New Hampshire will go down as the place where the Clinton campaign lost its way. Bernie Sanders didn't...
  • VANITY - Attended the Ted Cruz 'Meet and Greet" - Lindy's Diner, Keene, NH (Jan18, 2016)

    I took the family to New Hampshire early this morning to meet Ted Cruz. It was cold, but everyone at Lindy's Diner was excited. It was a good turnout and Ted Cruz had a conversation with my 6 year old. I linked to that exchange, I think you might find it endearing and genuine. Later he spoke in the diner for a good while and left to continue on his journey. We had been to a Trump rally, so it was nice to also meet another Republican candidate. My impression of him is that he is a very good man...very...

    Pollsters have been busy in New Hampshire the last few days. As of this post's publication, HuffPost Pollster's charts have added 15 polls of the New Hampshire primaries that were conducted after last Monday's Iowa caucuses -- nine of the Republican primary and six of the Democratic primary. If you include all of the daily tracking polls, which are only added to the charts every other day because of their overlapping dates, there have been 22 poll releases since Wednesday. If that seems excessive or ridiculous, that's because it is. And there will be several more -- those numbers above...

    Young women in New Hampshire were offended by the way Hillary Clinton uses her gender to garner support, an MSNBC survey revealed Friday. When MSNBC anchor Tamron Hall asked young female voters about Hillary Clinton's claim on Wednesday that she is not an establishment candidate because she is a woman, they responded negatively. One of the respondents said that she did not like how Clinton assumed that her feminism was identical to the feminism of all women. "I also am a woman. I also face discrimination as being a woman.

    MANCHESTER, N.H. - An internal poll conducted on Sunday suggests that Marco Rubio's fumbled debate performance has damaged his prospects heading into the New Hampshire primary. The poll, conducted by the pro-John Kasich New Day for America Super PAC, shows Rubio plummeting to fourth place in the primary here, with 10 percent of the vote. Most of the polling conducted in the immediate days before the debate showed Rubio in second place.

    Does this qualify as a “gaffe” when defined in classic Washington terms? Former Vermont Governor Howard Dean sat down with Andrea Mitchell on MSNBC to talk about the New Hampshire primary and seems to have lost control of his better partisan senses for a moment. Mitchell was quizzing him about all the money that Hillary Clinton has taken from special interest groups though her Super PACs and her paid speaking engagements, relating these bits of history to recent attacks coming from Bernie Sanders’ campaign. Dean is one of Clinton’s most vocal (and frequently incomprehensible) supporters and he didn’t take kindly...

    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.

    I've knocked around Rand Paul quite a lot over the last year-plus, and I think most or all if it was well-deserved (I've also, it should be noted, praised him a few times as well, when he deserved it). But Paul's decision to drop out of the race today (before New Hampshire) in order to help unify the party to defeat Trump, shows that he, like Scott Walker, is a true Republican who believes in conservative principles, and for that he should be commended. See, there are two types of people who call themselves Republicans. The first are those who...

    2016 candidate Rand Paul explains why he thinks the polls are wrong on FNC's 'The Kelly File' and MSNBC's 'Morning Joe.' JOE SCARBOROUGH, MSNBC: Senator, if there is a surprise tonight as far as somebody doing much better, I think it's you. I think -- You've talked about it, your supporters don't seem to be as represented in the polls as others. SEN. RAND PAUL (R-KY), PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: One of the interesting thing is when you look at the polls, sometimes there is nobody under 30 in the poll, often there are very few people under 40 in the poll,...

    Tech entrepreneur Scott Banister has long been an ally to the liberty movement. The angel investor, IronPort founder, and PayPal board member donated $3 million to a Rand Paul supporting Super PAC, and has been a vocal supporter of the libertarian Republican. Now that Rand Paul is out of the presidential race, Banister has thrown his support behind Ted Cruz. Cruz is a self-described constitutional conservative who earned the endorsements of both Rand and Ron Paul in his 2012 Texas Senate race. Scott Banister Our best chance for a constitutional presidency is now @tedcruz. #LibertariansForCruz Cruz's relationship with the Pauls...

    "It's really about asking them whether they're going to get out and vote on Tuesday and whether they support Mr. Trump," McGough said. He said he had made 1,150 calls for Trump on Wednesday alone. Kevin Bray, 51, another volunteer, said he had driven more than 20 hours in the rain from Nixa, Missouri, after seeing the results in Iowa. "Iowa happened and I woke up really irritated," he said. "I said, you know, I want to make a difference." He said he arrived on Wednesday morning and told Trump's team to put him to work. In a back room...
  • Christie Doubles Down on 'Boy in the Bubble' Comment, Hammers Rubio on Youth, Inexperience

    A few days ago in New Hampshire, Gov. Chris Christie called his presidential rival Marco Rubio the "boy in the bubble." He was referring to Rubio's supposed lack of facetime with voters, instead relying on manufactured town halls and scripted answers. Yet, pundits can't help thinking the New Jersey governor was also targeting Rubio's youth. Judge for yourself: "We know who the boy in the bubble is up here who never answers your questions, who's constantly scripted and controlled because he can't answer your questions," Christie said. "So when Senator Rubio gets here, when the boy in the bubble gets...

    Tattoo parlors in New England are inking Donald Trump and Bernard Sanders supporters for free if they're willing to brand their bodies with the names, faces or slogans of either presidential hopeful ahead of the upcoming New Hampshire primaries. After the owner of The Clay Dragon Tattoo Parlor in Seabrook, New Hampshire, announced last month that he was offering free tattoos of Mr. Trump for fans of the Republican Party front-runner, Aartistic Inc. in Winooski, Vermont, agreed to do the same with designs inspired by the Democratic hopeful. Tyre Duvernay, the owner of Aartistic, originally said he would give out...
  • Marco Rubio Stole Ted Cruz’s Iowa Bounce

    A candidate is moving up in the New Hampshire polls — but it’s the man who finished third in Iowa, Marco Rubio, and not the Iowa winner, Ted Cruz. Rubio has gained around 6 percentage points in the New Hampshire polls, while Donald Trump has lost 2 points (although Trump remains the favorite here). There’s still a tiny bit of pre-Iowa data in polling average, and the numbers will undoubtedly shift around a few points over the weekend. But if any candidate were emerging with massive momentum as a result of his Iowa performance, we probably would have seen it...

    I was listening to Mark Levin’s radio show last night during which he expressed his frustration with how the GOP has allowed itself to be mired in meaningless “scandals” at the expense of making a clear case for conservatism and addressing policy. I agree with him. It is absolutely unbelievable to me that despite having a very strong lineup of candidates, on tp of 8 years of disastrous progressive liberalism, we could be in danger of losing this nation to a SOCIALIST? While the media (even on our side) obsesses over tweets, there are critical issues we should be discussing....

    In a strongly worded editorial on Thursday, The Des Moines Register called on the Iowa Democratic Party to move quickly to prove that Monday's results are correct. The piece titled "Editorial: Something smells in the Democratic Party," starts out: "Once again the world is laughing at Iowa." It gets sharper from there.
