Trump supporter call Cruz a “pussy”…Trump makes sure Everyone hears that…

Only Donald Trump can get away with this….

And the media LOVES it!….

While they caution that Trump is crass….

His rants generate media time….

The Trump show is ALIVE and WELL….

(The comment was yelled by a woman…)

Trump was touting his hardline stance against terrorists from the Middle East when he mentioned Cruz’s response during the debate Saturday on the use of waterboarding.

“Honestly I thought he’d say, ‘absolutely’ – and he didn’t,” Trump said, suggesting that Cruz was concerned about how some might take his answer on the subject.

“She just said a terrible thing,” Trump said, stopping his own remarks at the arena in Manchester and pointing out a woman in the audience, beckoning her to raise her voice.

“You know what she said? Shout it out, ’cause I don’t want to,” Trump continued. “OK, you’re not allowed to say – and I never expect to hear that from you again – she said … he’s a pussy.”

“That’s terrible, terrible,” Trump said as the audience erupted into a mix of laughs and cheers and he threw his hands into the air and moved away from the microphone…..

Clinton staff issues again?

Politico is out with a piece on a disconnect between the Clinton’s and their campaign staff…

For those around 8 years ago?

This a repeat…

The Clinton’s know they have the nomination THIS time…

Image result for Hillary clinton/bill

But one supposes that seeing a rival candidate AGAIN being serenaded by worked up crowds and mobbed media hurts…

The Clintons seem to be fighting the media while Trump and Sanders are getting a free ride….

They have to be wondering why can’t they get in on that?

“There’s nobody sitting in the middle of this empowered to create a message and implement it,” said one former Obama 2008 aide. “They are kind of rudderless… occasionally Hillary grabs the rudder, but until recently she was that interested in [working on messaging]… Look, she going to be the nominee, but she’s not going to get any style points and if she isn’t careful she is going to be a wounded nominee. And they better worked this shit out fast because who ever the Republicans pick is going to be 29 times tougher than Bernie.”

DailyKos Morning Digest 2/8/16: Arizona Republican Paul Babeu slammed for abuse of students at school he ran

Arizona GOP congressional candidate Paul Babeu

Leading Off:

AZ-01: Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu was already one of the most despicable human beings running for Congress this year, but now he’s cemented his hold on the very bottom spot. Before moving to Arizona, Babeu served as headmaster of the DeSisto School, a private school for troubled youth in his home state of Massachusetts. The school, known for treating students with an “intense discipline regimen,” was a nightmarish disaster that shut down in 2004, after state investigators found massive violations of basic dignity like these:

The probe resulted in a court order to stop specific activities, including punishments that put students in chairs facing corners for hours at a time, withholding food from students and strip-searching. The court also ordered the school to stop group showers and allow students to use the bathroom in private.

That was all well-known when Babeu first sought the Republican nomination in Arizona’s 4th Congressional district back in 2012—a bid that was derailed when a former lover of Babeu’s, an unauthorized immigrant, alleged that Babeu had threatened him with deportation if he did not remain quiet about their relationship. Babeu denied the allegations but acknowledged he was gay and quit the race a few months later.

Babeu’s now waging a second congressional bid (this time in the swingy 1st District), and his DeSisto history has re-emerged thanks to a home video obtained by a local TV station, ABC15, in which Babeu spoke highly of the harsh punishment of the children under his care. ABC15 had investigated Babeu’s tenure back in 2012, after which Babeu denied knowing anything about the school’s abusive practices and had his lawyers send a threatening letter to the station….

Political Roundup for February 8, 2016…Cruz = Nixon?…RRH Elections

President

Rubio:  After having what can be classified as a rough debate, Senator Marco Rubio (R) came out swinging and had a large event Sunday morning in Londonderry that maxed out the capacity of the venue.  Specifically, Rubio hammered away at President Obama again despite the blustering attack her received for his repetitive critique of President Obama from Governor Chris Christie (R), a on again off again buddy of the President, during the debate on Saturday.

Elites and New Hampshire:  New Hampshire poses another problem for elites within both political parties as voters look poised to hand victories to a old hippie socialist over former Secretary of State and Co-President Hillary Clinton on the Democratic side and to a demagogue liberal posing as a Republican on the Republican side.

Bush: RRH favorite Ross Douthat examines why former Governor Jeb Bush’s (R) failed campaign has all the hallmarks of the undoing of his father, President George H.W. Bush (R) on top of being tied to toxic legacy left by his brother, President George W. Bush (R).

Clinton:  When you think Republicans have lunacy occurring in their ranks, you have to look to see what is going on with the Democrats.  Gloria Steinem and Madeleine Albright have launched vicious attacks against women who are not blindly following former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and voting for her because we need to obtain identity politics goals blindly.  Albright said those women who do not support each other, aka those who are Feeling the Bern, really should burn in a special level of hell for not helping a fellow woman.

Cruz:  The New York Times is several months late in realizing what I have known for awhile:  Senator Ted Cruz (R) is the President Richard Nixon (R) of our time.  In addition, the Times finally realizes what strategy Cruz can use to win and how he has been successful so far.

Trump:  In case you missed it, Donald Trump (himself) upped the ante regarding interrogation of terrorists by promising to not just bring back waterboarding, but to bring forward something a “hell of a lot worse.”  I guess he is off the topic of illegal immigration for once, which might be a good thing.

Music:  At least we can thank Donald Trump for one thing, he has broken the decades long Republican practice of kowtowing to artists who object to Republicans using their music at events.  Trump continues to blare Adele even after she said to stop….

The Sanders campaign gets caught again using dirty tricks…

Bernie Sanders has had to apoligize for the actions of his supporters in the field recently….(Nevada ...Data breach)

Bill Clinton has complaint ed out loud about moisleading things thrown at his wife by Sanders supporters…

We now have another incident where things are not on the up and up….

Bernie Sanders’ campaign has acknowledged the “unintentional improper use” of American Legion’s emblem on campaign materials and is working to halt such use, according to documents obtained by POLITICO on Monday.

The Sanders campaign has come under fire in recent weeks for using the veterans organization’s logo on fliers. “We sincerely appreciate the notification of the unintentional improper use by Sanders of the emblem of The American Legion and the helpful information pertaining to your concerns,” the Seattle-based firm Garvey Schubert Barer said in a statement representing the campaign. “Sanders takes intellectual property matters very seriously and does its best to respectfully and appropriately acknowledge and to not infringe the intellectual property rights of others.”

Donald Trump will forsake the ‘ground game’…it’s about HIM…

Folks?

Itr’s ALWAYS been about HIM throughout his life….

It ain’t gonna stop now….

He lost because he neglected to work things the tried a true way for Republicans…Trump is just into spending money for ads and people on the ground…He is true at heart a busnessman and he HAS been VERY carful NOT to spend a LOT of money so far in his campaign for the nomination…

And…

He’s ahead in the polls in New Hampshire…

The guy who was closing on him there just imploded in the latest debate…and there are NO clear choices against him in a large but unremarkanble field….Add to that the fact that Grand Ole Party doesn’t seem to want to make up its mind on who they want ?

And maybe Donald Trump can go light and make things Show Time....

POLITICO reported last week that the candidate was refusing to revamp his ground game after a second-place finish in the Iowa caucuses, a race where led most of the way in the polls. After that loss, Trump claimed he “wasn’t even familiar” with the term.

Less than 24 hours before the first primary ballots are cast in New Hampshire, Trump appears to have shifted very little in his thinking, adding that “the most important thing is the person doing the talking and the message.”

“I think it’s more important than people knocking on doors,” he said…

In New Hampshire…Young women are mostly for Bernie….

How is that a 74 year old male is getting more support than a 68 year old grandmother that lived in the White House?

Simple….

Time….

Hillary Clinton IS a TRUE progressive simply by being where she is….

That America could be tyhe process of electing  its first woman President IS historic….

But for young women…..

Especially young white females in New Hampshire THAT isn’t much of big deal….

Both of the US Senators from the state ARE women….

One of the two US House Representives is a women…

So the Clinton name and gender isn’t that much of big deal….

Also young women HAVE not gone thru the trials and tribulations that older women have and have little thought about the significagance of a Hillary win in the LONG run….

The young women in New hamopshire will vote for who THEY ID with….And that seems to be the guy promising them things he can’t dleieve…But can make them feel good….

Unlike in Iowa, where Clinton won women by 11 percentage points, she is struggling here. A new CNN-WMUR survey here showed Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont beating her among women by eight points.

One reason Clinton is doing poorly with women in New Hampshire, more so than in Iowa, is that people here are accustomed to women holding public office at every level.

“We’ve elected the good, the bad, the ugly of women,” Arnesen said. “We’ve seen them in every level of leadership. We’ve seen some produce and some disappoint.”

Bill Clinton gets mean on Bernie Sanders….

Ah, William Jefferson……

Last time it was South Carolina….

This time it’s New Hampshire….

We know you care for wife and want her to win….

But ya gotta NOT let that anger thing get the best of ya….

There have been reports of Sanders supports goig to extreme’s in Nevada to get access to voters and other incidents….

The polls point to Sanders getting a win in New Hampshire , where Hillary Clinton staged a comeback eight years ago against Barack Obama…

(After New Hampshire polls point to clear sailing for the Clinton campaign to the nomination…)

Bill Clinton uncorked an extended attack on Senator Bernie Sanders on Sunday, harshly criticizing Mr. Sanders and his supporters for what he described as inaccurate and “sexist” attacks on Hillary Clinton.

“When you’re making a revolution you can’t be too careful with the facts,” Mr. Clinton said, deriding Mr. Sanders’s oft-mentioned call for a political revolution.

The former president, addressing a few hundred supporters at a junior high school here, portrayed his wife’s opponent for the Democratic nomination as hypocritical, “hermetically sealed” and dishonest.

He even likened an incident last year, in which Sanders staffers obtained access to Clinton campaign voter data, to stealing a car with the keys in the ignition.

Mr. Clinton discussed the race for nearly 50 minutes, and his comments took on a harder edge the longer he spoke. What began as a testimonial to Mrs. Clinton’s leadership and a statesmanlike lecture on her approach to issues evolved into an angrier recitation of grievances against Mr. Sanders and his fervent supporters…..

The GOPer Presidential nomination race 2/7/16…..

 It’s only fluid in New Hampshire. Cruz is organized and waiting to strike back in South Carolina and the rest of the South, and it depends on if Trump can win in New Hampshire if he advances. Big changes coming now for the next 36 hours – most Independents have not even decided which primary they will vote in, Rubio has gone flat, and Bush seems to have gained new traction. If the State’s independents move to the GOP primary in big numbers, all bets are off.

Marco did himself huge damage yesterday, now everyone knows he cannot think on his feet. He was simply the flavor of the week after Iowa, and it really depends on if he can place in New Hampshire to be a viable candidate going forward (after all he is losing his home state to Trump, and probably Bush now). So, Marcobot can get on his knees and beg to be the Vice Presidential candidate, but the Republicans remember Dan Quayle and are not going to repeat that mistake.

Finally Kasich, the party is in no mood to nominate Democrat-lite after doing so the last two times out. Kasich has to come in second to be viable going forward – but, he could if the hard right gets out voted on Tuesday…..

Denver Broncos Win Super Bowl 50 on their Defense NOT Peyton Manning…

broncos3

Denver wins the Super Bowl…
20 to 10

Peyton Manning goes out with a win…
But the guy should retire…
He was NOT the Manning we know….

Cam Newton was out there by himself…

Denever’s defenes hurried him, sacked him and made his life miserable
His team was TIGHT…
Dropped passes…
No running game…

The Denver Broncos beat the Carolina Panthers 24-10 to win Super Bowl 50 on Sunday night.

In a game dominated by offensive struggles, the Broncos outlasted the Panthers by stifling quarterback Cam Newton. Newton, the NFL’s MVP, passed for 265 yards but didn’t throw a touchdown and turned the ball over three times as he struggled to figure out the league’s top defense.

The key play came late in the first quarter, when Denver linebacker Von Miller, who won Super Bowl MVP honors, sacked Newton and forced a fumble that Broncos defensive end Malik Jackson recovered in the end zone for a touchdown to give Denver an early 10-0 lead…..

Why isn’t Superman….Ah?…Super?

The Atlantic Magazine does a whole piece on DC Comic’s Superman character and how he seema to have lost his way…..

While the Marvel Universe is moving along making TONS of money in everyday with it’s characters…..

It seems that we are left to see a Superman these days that is is anything but inviciable like he’s supposed to be…

I mean look at the trailers for the new movie…Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice….

Superman and Batman getting into it?

REALLY….

Superman is suppose to be SUPER….

Batman IS tough…

But lets face it…

He’s sup[posed to be HUMAN….

The guy bleeds ….

Superman flys and is bullet proof ….

At least he was?

Trailers for the sequel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, have shifted the focus (and top billing) to the Dark Knight. Worst of all, conventional wisdom puts the blame on Superman himself. He’s boring, people say; he’s unrelatable, nothing like the Marvel characters dominating the sales charts and the box office. More than anything, he seems embarrassing. Look at him. Truth? Justice? He wears his underwear on the outside.

Behold! I give you the problem of Superman. It’s a problem that has less to do with the character himself and more to with DC Comics, which found itself stuck with a flagship character it thought needed fixing. In trying, it broke him nearly beyond repair….

‘Bernie Sanderswitzky’ on Saturday Night Live…..

Ain’t nothing wrong with having a little fun….

Good for you Bernie…..

YouTube Preview Image

Bernie Sanders channeled his inner Bernie Sanderswitzky in his “Saturday Night Live” close-up, appearing in a sketch with host Larry David that gently prodded at the democratic socialist’s campaign message.

David’s character, playing a man on a distressed ship a century ago, tried to finagle his way onto a lifeboat with the women and children, asserting that his father was “rich … [and] from a wealthy family. Technically, my life is worth all of yours put together, especially these women and midgets. So if it’s all the same to you, I’m going to pop down in that lifeboat.”

“Hold on. Hold on. Wait a second. I am so sick of the 1 percent getting this preferential treatment. Enough is enough. We need to unite and work together if we’re all going to get through this,” Sanders’ character says.

“Sounds like socialism to me,” David’s character remarked.

“Democratic socialism,” Sanders’ character corrected him.

“Eh, what’s the difference?” David’s character asked, to which Sanders responded, “Yooge difference.”
