    pulled quote: "... Since Roosevelt’s Presidency, the Executive Office of the President has gained about 2,000 people, and the number of political appointees has increased to more than 7,000. Setting aside White House staffers and about 3,000 part time Presidential appointments, each new President fills about 3,000 positions with his or her partisans. To lead departments and agencies, contemporary Presidents make appointments to about 800 full time PAS positions, which require Senate confirmation (not including US attorneys, US marshals, or ambassadors, which are also PAS). In addition, each new administration can appoint partisans amounting to 10% of the Senior Executive...

    Members of the GOP foreign policy establishment are open to supporting Hillary Clinton for president if that’s what it takes to prevent Donald Trump from becoming commander in chief. As The Hill reports, a number of prominent Republicans who signed a scathing open letter denouncing Trump said they aren’t wavering from their opposition to him..."Donald Trump is not a Republican. ... He is a caricature of classless wealth. ... He is a caricature of the ugly American." “What’s happening is you have a lot of people who are desperate to get anybody in there other than Trump. ...

"I could drop my pants," he said in an interview. "Moon the whole crowd. Everybody would be aghast, except the press guys would never notice." Bush is entering the final days of his last stand, and hints of exasperation are leaking through his cheerful, stoic demeanor. Without a major comeback in New Hampshire on Tuesday, or, absent that, a Bush miracle in South Carolina later this month, he will face increasing...

    PORTSMOUTH, N.H. - New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie plans to issue a statement Wednesday afternoon suspending his presidential campaign, The Washington Times has learned. The announcement follows a disappointing sixth-place finish in New Hampshire's first-in-the-nation primary, where Mr. Christie was hoping a strong showing would give him more breathing room in a race where the tough-talking governor competed with former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Ohio Gov. John Kasich and Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida to emerge as the most viable alternative to businessman Donald Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas...

    Washington Post ^ | January 12, 2016 | Mary Brigid McManamon
    Donald Trump is actually right about something: Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) is not a natural-born citizen and therefore is not eligible to be president or vice president of the United States. The Constitution provides that "No person except a natural born citizen . . . shall be eligible to the office of President." The concept of "natural born" comes from the common law, and it is that law the Supreme Court has said we must turn to for the concept's definition. On this subject, the common law is clear and unambiguous. The 18th-century English jurist William Blackstone, the preeminent authority...

    The principal news about Donald Trump’s candidacy for the U.S. Republican presidential nomination is not the sometimes controversial things that he says, but the increasingly hysterical responses to him from the traditionally respectable political quarters that he discomforts. In this shrill political atmosphere, he is not the chief offender to civil standards of political discourse. Roger Cohen wrote in The New York Times last week, and he was reprinted in the National Post on Wednesday, that Trump was reminiscent of Hitler, that there were serious comparisons between Weimar Germany (1919-1933) and the contemporary United States, and that American politics is...

Among all Republicans – not simply likely primary voters – Trump holds a substantial edge over Carson, at 34 percent to about 20 percent, according to the Reuters/Ipsos poll.

Some in the audience craned their necks to hear his timid presentation, but most quickly dismissed him as being horribly incompetent in today’s media society.

Obama zeroed in on comments by Republican presidential candidates Donald Trump and Mike Huckabee to decry attention-grabbing "outrageous attacks that have become all too commonplace" in American politics. Obama described Huckabee's suggestion that a historic nuclear deal between Iran and world powers earlier this month was marching Israelis to the "door of the oven," as part of a "general pattern" that would be "considered ridiculous if it weren't so sad". Obama also took issue with Trump's "outrageous" comments about the...

    While the outcome of Rand Paul’s attempt to block renewal of PATRIOT Act remains unsettled, his presidential campaign notched a victory of sorts early Tuesday: the Nevada legislature failed to pass a bill changing the state’s 2016 GOP caucus to a primary election. The failure of the measure — backed by the Republican National Committee and the state’s GOP establishment — represents a big win for Paul, who stands to benefit from maintaining the status quo in the first-in-the-West state. For the past two presidential election cycles, grassroots factions aligned with his father, Ron Paul, have flexed outsized muscle in...
