Jeb, Christie on top for 2016
Washington Examiner, by Paul Bedard

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/19/2012 11:50:10 AM

Less than two weeks since the last presidential election, campaign advisors, lobbying firms and conservative activists are already holding meetings to mull which of the potential 2016 Republican candidates to bank on. Several GOP activists and sources said that of all those who might enter the race, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie are on top, with the B-list including Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, Ohio Sen. Rob Portman, South Dakota Sen. John Thune, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and

To which conservative activists does Jeb Bush hold appeal, and why? What is his singular accomplishment?

I would vote for a third term for President Zero, before I would vote for the Fat Bast*rd. Seriously.
At least I know what zero stands for.

We need to quit listening to the news media. This is why we lost both 2008 and 2012. I quit listening to them, but there´s alot who still do. No to the Bushes and Christie. Both are RINOs.

Looks like the Republican establishment types are shaping up another Democrat Lite type slate of national candidates for the Republicans.

They should remember that next time around, they will be going up against whoever the liberal Democrats nominate, either Hillary Clinton or another Obama clone, and on top of that, will have both Barack Obama and Bill Clinton essentially campaigning again for whoever the liberal Democrats put up, and you just know they would love to run against another Bush.

Jeb was governor of FL. He did a good job. I like him. But we don´t need any more Bushes in the White House. He would never win for that very reason.

Sarah Palin could. We would not have lost to O if she´d been in either place on the ticket. As for Christie, sorry pal, you used up your well thought of position when you kissed O´s butt after the hurricane.

I still like Newt, although I guess his time is passed. Paul Ryan impressed me. There are good people still but if Rove and his elitist buddies pick another RINO, I´m like another poster here, I´d vote for Obama fist.

The real problem with this is not the names being floated - who else would you expect to be mentioned at this point? - but with the very notion that GOP 2016 will matter at all. Financial collapse, a permanent socialist votng majority (a key Obama goal) and a federal court system completely unmoored from the Constitution will render all of this meaningless.

Gee who opened the gate and let all the weird thinking folks in here? You have to be for bad mouthing Jeb simply because of his Dad or his family. This is about the average mentality of the country lately. Didn´t your mommy teach you "if you can´t speak nicely about someone then shut your diarrhea mouth". You folks bad mouth everyone so much you will never get any decent people to run for office. Why should they when you have so much hate in your hearts?

I lived in Fla when he was Governor and he was well regarded and did a great job, especially far superior to either Bush 41 or 43 when it came to hurricanes. He had a competent staff and good communications up and down the state, part of which I was involved in.

He has to be 200% better than what we have now and if anyone thinks otherwise I´d wonder about what you really are.

Truthfully, I would far prefer the Tea Party become a recognized Party and put up their own candidates for President, VP and both Houses of Congress. We would be far closer to returning to our Constitution and our Republic.

Since you folks like to play the "know it all" card, without looking it up, let´s see you list the NINE specific DUTIES of the President of the US and where would you find them listed. Once you figure that out then you can start looking for someone who will do THOSE duties.

Christie is finished. Even as Veep. He lay down with dogs and will not be able to shake the fleas.
They should get it vetted by the courts to determine if Jindal is eligible. IMO he is not Natural Born and is a Conservative, so has to obey laws. No matter how you look at it Sarah seems to be the best choice.

As I recall, Jeb withdrew from presidential politics when his daughter was arrested several times for prescription drug shopping and his wife tried to bring in thousands of dollars goods without declaring them.
It was then that GW was pushed to the front.
Didn´t Bush 41 and Jeb visit zippy in the WH before election- why? Was the fix in?
Christie is a fat slob without any scruples who would sell out the country for a hug for Springsteen.

Now for my one trick pony. Let me know when you get tired of hearing it because I´m sure there will be numerous occassions when it will come out of the stall.

Jindal and Rubio aren´t eligible. Parents had not naturalized as US citizens PRIOR to their birth. Yes, they were born here, but not to citizen parents. Next.

Constitution Party? That would mean the fall of the welfare state and it´s too late for that!

How about the American Freedom Party, combining the Tea Party, the Libertarians, and the Blue dog Democrats.

Then maybe if the Republicans gets rid of Rove, Bush, Christie, and the other Progressives we could let them speak.

We would become the Big Tent for Americans, like the Democrats are the Big Tent for Socialist, Illegals, and Minorities.

I don´t think any of the names being bounced around right now deserve the harshness of some of these comments. Try to keep the blood pressure under control, guys. It´s really easy to stand back and say "no". I can think of few that I would hate to vote for in 2016, but I would be there if necessary. Jeb Bush was a good governor. He might have been the Republican nominee in 2008 if he had won his governership at the same time Dubya was winning his. Jeb was always thought to be a better candidate. Christie´s constituents seem to believe he is a good governor, too. So do Jindal´s supporters. I would remind the Palin hopers that she has never indicated she would like to run for President and is apparently happy in Alaska. That chance has passed. Probably there are some names none of us have considered. I´m hoping there is a spot for Susana Martinez. After all, we´ve got lots of time to think about it.

I have always voted. No matter who the Repub candidate was. I marched to the poll and cast my vote. Never again. I will either not vote or do a write in vote. Jeb, Christie, or any other liberal Repub will not get my vote again. First of all they would lose. And, second they are worse than a Dem because at least with a Dem we can fight. When there is a viper in the nest we have a harder time resisting. So, if that makes me responsible for Obama and other Dems winning..then so be it. They will win anyway. But at least I can make a statement that the Repubs are no better. That is how I will vote. Never never never again will I vote for an establishment Repub. I warned the Romney supporters on Lucianne that this was the last time.

I see absolutely nobody in the GOP who can excite voters in 2016. Jindal? Forget it, he`s too short. Jeb Bush? Are you kidding? Christie? No way. Paul Ryan? Not forceful enough. All the Media has to do is say he was Romney`s running mate and he`s finished. Rubio? His 6 year term is up in 2016. It`s one or the other, but Hispanics won`t vote for him unless he`s willing to give them free stuff.

Thanks for your "concern", #52. I was not a Romney fan, but, I sent him a chunk of money and voted for him, and I did the same thing for McCain. I have voted in every major election since 1972. I understand the math about withholding my vote, I know that in reality it saves the opponent two votes, the one they needed to tie and the one needed to go ahead. But, Christie is a HUGE Liberal and his slobbering all over obama and springsteen has disgusted me to the point that he will never get my vote.

Agree #30. A mean spirit dwells here now. Maybe it´s because we´re all so traumatized by Barak Hussein Obama. Maybe it was because a lot of us didn´t want Mitt Romney & now we´ve been proven right. I sure didn´t want to be right!! It gives me no pleasure whatsoever.

We have to stop shooting each other, folks. We´ve got to unite to fight this foe! I will do everything in my power to get the GOP to realize they can´t nominate another moderate ever, or they will lose massive amounts of us to staying home, or the Tea Party, & others. That includes Jeb Bush & Chris Christie.

It does not matter because the liberal New York based media and information industries are not about to let another Republican into the White House as long as they are around to build up whoever the liberal Democrats put up.

After his love fest with Obama a week before the election, Christie will never be able to pull enough votes from the Republican States to get the Republican nomination. He will be a New Jersey politician for as long as he lives, and that will not be long if he does not lose a couple of hundred pounds.

They pick Jeb for the Catholic and Hispanic demographic. His undoing as a candidate will simply be that he´s "Another Bush". Christie´s hobbled before he starts, as his praise of Obama just before the election sowed skepticism among the Conservative base.

Sounds like just the kind of candidates the MSM will enjoy anointing for the GOP.

I don´t know. I was no fan of Romney early on, but ended up believing that he did a good job and would have made an excellent President. It was stolen.

Anyway, it´s academic. There isn´t going to be much left that can be fixed by 2016, unless events intervene.

No! Heck No! We need to tell the RNC under absolutely NO circumstances will we accept this or any more false Republicans. We do NOT need Democrats using an "R" after their name to fill our positions. We want people who will represent US and what we believe in as well as the party principles. We need to replace the RNC heirarchy.

Now is the time to bankrupt the MSM, stand up more news organizations that report facts and send all the "pundits" home. Now is the time to home school if at all possible. We can worry about who the gop will run for president in 2016 once we win the propaganda war.

I think the problem is that it is too soon to talk about ANY election right now. We are only two weeks away from the previous FOUR year campaign. I don´ think it is healthy to even want to think about 2014 or 2016 at this time We all should take a break from it until at least after January 1st. Personally I would like to take at least a year off thinking about 2016.

I´m with #63´s sentiments, as I am frequently, both as to warming up to Romney to where I voted ´for´ him, not just against Barry the Fraud, and about the state of the country in 2016. The country needs another Reagan. The Repubs might not want another Reagan, but the country does. And to go along with the next ´Reagan´ a reincarnation of Sen. No - Jesse Helms - to be Sen Majority Leader.

But, as I stated up thread, can we concentrate on 2014 first.

"Jeb, Christie on top for 2016"

That takes care of the Democrat ticket.

Now we need to think about some Republican nominees.

No More Progressive RINO´s!

Well, at least we know who the liberals have picked! Rubio is trustworthy... a true conservative but he will be trashed for the next 4 years.

We need to focus on massive election reform before even thinking about a candidate... Without reform, we´ll continue to have fixed elections.

I think Romney is a good man and would be a far better President than what we are stuck with for four more long years. I am not happy with the Tea Party as all I get from them is more request for more money and I don´t think Conservatives and Libertarians are a good match, their idea of drugs for anyone or everybody is not a conservative concept. But I am like many of you folks, the Republicans better come up with a Conservative nominee or I will not be voting.

Christycreme is dead to me. Kissed zero´s butt and double crossed Mittens without even giving it a second thought. I hope the Tea Party forms as a viable party with candidates. I am done with the doves, mcpains and mittens as candidates. We need a conservative candidate that is willing to win. People need to be educated. Look, already the media is tearing down Rubio, and the election is still nearly 48 months away. Decaf coffee candidates that the establishment picks to run are not effective. I will not give a dime to another Republican candidate. My money is on the tea party.

Little Girls Scold Michelle Obama
in PETA Easter Campaign Video
Mediaite, by Josh Feldman    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/18/2014 8:02:15 PM     Post Reply
Every year the White House hosts an Easter egg roll, and the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals are trying to get the White House to use plastic eggs instead of real, hard-boiled ones with a new campaign specifically targeting First Lady Michelle Obama. And a big part of the campaign is a video PETA put online featuring little girls telling Obama they’re not mad, just “disappointed.” The little girls try to convince her to break tradition, asking, “If all the other first ladies jumped off a bridge, would you?” and asking her to put herself in the shoes of the chickens that had to lay all those thousands and thousands of eggs.

The Joint Chiefs of Staff of the U.S. military and American intelligence agencies have quietly pushed the White House in recent weeks to deny a new Russian surveillance plane the right to fly over U.S. territory. This week, the White House finally began consideration of the decision whether to certify the new Russian aircraft under the so-called “Open Skies Treaty.” And now the question becomes: Will the spies and generals get their way? As the United States and Russia face off publicly over Ukraine, behind the scenes, President Obama’s national security cabinet is having its own quiet feud over a

WASHINGTON—Speaker John Boehner and other senior House Republicans are telling donors and industry groups that they aim to pass immigration legislation this year, despite the reluctance of many Republicans to tackle the divisive issue before the November elections. Many lawmakers and activists have assumed the issue was off the table in an election year. But Mr. Boehner said at a Las Vegas fundraiser last month he was "hellbent on getting this done this year," according to two people in the room. A spokesman for Mr. Boehner didn´t dispute the account but said no action is possible until President Barack Obama

One of the few laws of political science is that when governments make mistakes, they tend to be whoppers. Luckily for them, the public’s memory is short, and the outrage of today soon declines into the apathy of tomorrow. From several articles published in a recent edition of the British Medical Journal, it appears that many governments around the world, including those of Britain and the US, may have made such a mistake in stockpiling billions of dollars’ worth of anti-flu medications, bought principally from Roche, the largest pharmaceutical company in the world as measured by capitalization. First the governments overestimated the

Conservative leader and Catholic L. Brent Bozell III today blasted Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) for mimicking the pope´s Holy Week foot-washing tradition while touting her immigration reform legislation: "I am a Catholic and I am offended at Minority Leader Pelosi´s continued abuses of the Catholic Church´s teachings and traditions. As a Catholic who has watched Ms. Pelosi champion one anti-Catholic cause after another, I believe this to be sacrilegious. "Christ taught the washing of the feet as an act of utter humility, while she turned a sacred religious tradition into a grandstanding political publicity stunt.

Your friendly neighborhood columnist has once again run afoul of Facebook’s elusive community standards. Now before you call up the preacher and put me on the church prayer list – let me assure the posting was neither unseemly nor ungentlemanly. This time I was censored for writing something about Rancher Cliven Bundy. I realized I had landed in the Facebook gulag when I tried to post our daily Bible verse. However, I was unable to post anything because Facebook had taken great offense to something I had written. “We removed something your page posted,” Facebook told me in a rather unpleasant message.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-HI) says her constituents are "frustrated and embarrassed" by Hawaii´s failed Obamacare exchange, which cost taxpayers $204 million and signed up only 8,000 people. On Wednesday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) announced it will launch an investigation into Hawaii´s busted Obamacare program. "This is not a partisan issue, this is an economic issue," said state Sen. Sam Slom. Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie previously predicted "hundreds of thousand of people" would sign up for Obamacare in the President´s home state. On Thursday, President Barack Obama tried to rally Democrats to

Nearly half of American voters think the IRS targeted conservative groups at the request of the White House, and most want Congress to keep investigating the matter. The latest Fox News poll also finds 69 percent don’t feel President Obama has followed through on his vow to “find out exactly what happened on this.” By a 49-41 percent margin, voters believe the Obama administration “intentionally had the IRS target conservative political groups.” That includes 26 percent of Democrats, 52 percent of independents and 71 percent of Republicans. Meanwhile, 67 percent of voters want Congress to keep investigating the IRS until

Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) introduced today a bill to update the government´s 20-year-old report on hate speech in the media.

Even though the number of illegal immigrants who have been deported through the courts has dropped by 43% since President Barack Obama took office, the Obama administration may enact administrative changes to allow bond hearings for detained illegal immigrants. According to the Los Angeles Times, this could result in "several thousand" illegal immigrants being released from jails and "could slow the pace of deportations" even more. The Times notes that the White House is scrambling to "ease the concerns of Latino groups and other traditional allies that have turned on President Obama in recent weeks" by trying to brand him

It’s pitiful that we’ve reached this point, but Obama’s account of this chat really is more credible than Cantor’s. O’s position on immigration is straightforward: He wants amnesty badly, partly for legacy reasons and partly because he’s understandably keen to legalize a few million future Democratic voters, and he’s hoping the GOP will go along so that he doesn’t have to do something risky like an executive moratorium on deportations. The GOP leadership’s position is anything but straightforward. They’re convinced that they need to pass some sort of immigration bill before 2016 or else Latinos will hand the White House

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer.

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
