Birthers go after 4 Republican 2016 hopefuls…..

The Republican party contunues to eat inself alive…..

The birther movement has come home to roost as the Republican presidential primary heats up.

In a column published last week on the conspiracy theory website WND, author Jack Cashill noted that questions had been raised about whether four of the 17 candidates in the GOP field were really “natural born citizens” and therefore eligible to run for President.

Ted Cruz has already dealt with those questions publicly — the Canadian-born senator from Texas renounced his citizenship with that country last summer in anticipation of a 2016 bid — but Cashill also listed Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) and former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA) among those who were suspect….

Ted Cruz shines in this weekend Social Conservative get together…

Jeb Bush and (Yes) Chris Christie held their own….

That according to Poiltiico….

Rand Paul and Marco Rubio where among the losers (Why am I NOT surprised at this)…..

Ted Cruz dominated, Rick Santorum flopped and Bobby Jindal found his niche.

At the latest GOP cattle call, about a dozen presidential contenders rolled through a Washington, D.C. ballroom over a three-day period to tout their socially conservative bona fides at the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s “Road to Majority” conference. Most of the 2016 hopefuls managed to impress evangelical and other conservative Christian voters by championing religious freedom, highlighting support for traditional marriage and stressing the importance of family and family values.

Some of the speakers — including Jeb Bush and Chris Christie — had solid performances, earning applause but not generating much buzz from conference attendees. Others, like John Kasich, barely animated the crowd at all. Then there were the handful of speakers who stood out, either for exceptionally sharp performances — or for surprisingly weak ones.

Here is POLITICO’s look at the winners and losers from the Faith and Freedom Coalition conference, based on speech content, audience reception and attendee buzz:

WINNERS

Ted Cruz

Cruz flat-out owned this event, firing up the crowd like no other candidate did — attendees were still talking about him two days after he spoke. The Texas senator delivered a rousing call to action aimed at the evangelical community, saying that 50 million of them sat home in 2012 but could make the difference in 2016. “If people of faith show up, if we stand for our faith and our liberty and the Constitution, we will win and turn the country around,” he said. To a rapt crowd, Cruz did his best Reagan impression when he promised “Morning is coming. Morning is coming.” And he tore into what he framed as the Obama administration’s assault on religious liberty — a prominent theme at the conference. When Cruz finished, the crowd mobbed him….

On the 2016 GOP Presidential Bench….

The GOP presidential bench is awful

Sorry Jeb, there’s no escape.

From the New York Post:

They cite the cool reception Christie has been getting recently from Republican establishment types outside of his home turf in the Northeast, and the fact that many fund-raisers are now looking to former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush as the party’s savior.

Chris Christie, a bombastic fat guy from Jersey collapses under a cloud of scandal. Scott Walker, bland, dry, lifeless and dull, attempts a redux of Tim Pawlenty but with bald spot. Some guy in Ohio nobody knows and looks like a milk delivery man from 1972. Some tiny doofus from Louisiana in a cheap suit that’s too big for his 5’9″, 140-pound frame. Then there are a murderer’s row of crazy people, most of them not even close to having the chops to wage a national presidential campaign.

On the other side, the most famous and admired woman in the entire world.

This is the state of affairs in the 2016 presidential campaign, a situation so lopsidedly in favor of Democrats that it is breathtaking to see. I can’t ever remember an upcoming election in which the two sides were so clearly uneven.

GOP Governors in Obama won states run against the Tea Party way….

While Senator Ted Cruz (R-Tx) and his House GOP Tea Party Army might be insolated against backlash from their ‘shutdown the government’ thing….

The midterms bring 36 governor’s races, with 22 incumbents on the ballot. Nine of those are Republicans in states Obama carried twice, including mega-states like Ohio, Florida, Michigan and Pennsylvania.

In a non-presidential year, the electorate will be friendlier – older, whiter and more conservative – but these incumbents know they need to win at least some voters who backed Obama.

From the vantage point of these governors, Romney lost not because he was too conservative but because he let Democrats define him, came off as heartless and did nothing to avoid being linked with unpopular congressional Republicans. Plus, the Obama field operation was vastly superior.

They grumble about the D.C. antics that led to the shutdown, which they widely believe was a main cause for Ken Cuccinelli’s defeat in Virginia’s off-year election.

This is another example of how out of reality some of the Grand Ole’ party people are…..

Unbelievable…..

Cruz emerges as GOP leader

PPP’s newest national poll finds Ted Cruz is now the top choice of Republican primary voters to be their candidate for President in 2016. He leads the way with 20% to 17% for Rand Paul, 14% for Chris Christie, 11% for Jeb Bush, 10% each for Marco Rubio and Paul Ryan, 4% for Bobby Jindal, and 3% each for Rick Santorum and Scott Walker.

Cruz has gained 8 points since our last national 2016 poll in July while everyone else has more or less stayed in place. He’s made himself the face of a government shutdown over Obamacare, and the Republican base supports that by a 64/20 margin. It’s not surprising that Republicans identifying as ‘very conservative’ support a shutdown 75/10, but even the moderate wing of the party supports it by a 46/36 margin.

Cruz is leading the GOP field based especially on his appeal to ‘very conservative’ primary voters, who he gets 34% with t0 17% for Rand Paul and 12% for Paul Ryan. Voters who fall into that ideological group make up the largest portion of the Republican electorate at 39%. With moderates Cruz gets only 4% with Christie leading at 34% to 12% for Jeb Bush and 10% for Marco Rubio, but they only account for 18% of GOP voters and thus aren’t all that relevant to Cruz’s prospects for winning a Republican nomination.

Our numbers also suggest that Cruz is now viewed more broadly as the leader of the Republican Party…..

The 2016 Race stirrings…..Hillary Beware…..

I will repeat this over and over…..

Hillary Cllinton NEEDS to give a wink on what she’s gonna do for 2016 NO LATER than this Summer to certain inside people….Failure to do so would put here in the same place she was in the spring of 2008….A front runner who  LOST…..

Really ……

After taking some time off from Secretatry of State , she needs to start making loose base touching with some the President’s campaign people….

If she does not…..

She will fall behind……The media hype didn’t work the last time….

I’d guess It won’t this time either….

The 2016 horse race is under way!

Consider the following:

* New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) proposed — and pushed to passage — a significant tightening of the Empire State’s gun laws this month, the first major legislative result in the wake of the shootings in Newtown, Connecticut late last year.

* Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley (D) is not only pushing to tighten the Old Line State’s gun laws but is also advocating that the state legislature repeal the death penalty.

* Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is calling for a major overhaul of the state’s tax code that would include the elimination of personal and corporate income taxes.

* Florida Sen. Marco Rubio has begun his pitch for an overhaul of the nation’s immigration laws, a pitch that has included a series of TV appearances on conservative media outlets.

Those four examples don’t even include New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s relentless push to establish himself as the problem-solver-in-chief in the wake of Hurricane Sandy or Vice President Joe Biden’s prominence in the last few months.

The simple fact is that virtually every major player (or potential player) in 2016 — with the exception of Hillary Clinton — is already working to bolster their own record of accomplishments on major national issues as they look toward the next presidential race…..
