Ranking the Republican
presidential contenders for 2016

Washington Post, by Chris Cillizza

Original Article

Posted By:BuckeyeRon, 11/3/2013 1:41:45 PM

The Republican professional political class increasingly views Chris Christie, who is on the verge of a sweeping reelection victory on Tuesday in the Democratic-friendly state of New Jersey, as its best — and maybe only — hope to win back the White House in 2016. Here’s how one plugged-in Republican consultant responded when asked how we should rank the current 2016 field: “Christie is in the [one] slot now and forevermore — he’s about to get huge margins in his historic reelection in a blue state — he’s the successful model for our party (from a political perspective) and his

Comments:
Little Chrissie provides the laugh of the day, first by attempting to designate "conservatives", and then by ranking a list of 10 guys, over half of whom wouldn´t be on any of our lists...

"over half", #1? Maybe for you, but I find only two I would not be enthusiastic about. That doesn´t mean I wouldn´t vote for them if they made it far enough.

The WaPo is spinning for Christi again? Wouldn´t the dems just LOVE to chose the GOP candidate?

Cillizza did include several possibilities but, IMHO, Christi, Kasich, Bush & Ryan shouldn´t be among them. Even Rubio´s favorability seems to have already faded. By 2016 there will probably be more possibilities.

I have made two huge mistakes in the last couple of presidential elections. I voted for McLame and Romney. And when the RINOs put Christy out to carry the ´conservative´ banner, I will not follow. No more, I will not give money, work or vote for Christy. I don´t want to be part of the continuing RINO surrender class party that simply enables fascist like Obambi instead of fighting them tooth and nail.

The Post has become even more shallow in its analyses since being taken over by Amazon founder Jeff Bezos.

He´s an engineer. Jimmy Carter was also an Engineer. Hoobert Heever was an Engineer. I´m sure somebody else was.

We really don´t know these people because of the quality of their political thinking ~ not that engineers are bad, but there it is.

I expect the Post to get whittled away quickly ~ and at some point you´ll go to a website much like Amazon to buy a news story ~ kinda´ like buying a used or reprinted book thingie......

But first, the shallowing out of an already shallow thought pan!

I never understand the rationale behind saying that one made a mistake by voting for McCain or Romney. They lost. Period. Would it have been better to stay home? To give up and vote for Obama?

The outcome would have been the same.

As long as registered Dem voters (who would vote for an orangutan if it had a D after its name) outnumber Republicans, Dems will probably prevail. A third party would simply siphon off Republicans, further diluting the possibilities for an other-than-Dem win.

The snswer is in getting Independents and Declined to States and even disaffected Dems to move right. A big task.

I like all those Republican candidates. Understand that it will be an uphill battle against Hillary and the Democrat Party reelection machine (which includes mainstream media). We have got to do something different than McCain and Romney. The Domocrats will attack the Republican Party for being racist and sexist. And they will win unless the Republicans can run a candidate who has the verbal skills in front of the TV camera to explain why it´s actually the Democratic Party that is racist. Can´t do much about Hillary being a woman. She gets votes for that. Republicans have got to turn out at the polls.

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: I´ve gotta tell, another little thing about Nelson Mandela. Do you realize in a couple of ways, maybe even more than a couple, Nelson Mandela has more in common or had more in common with Clarence Thomas than he does with Barack Obama? For example, Nelson Mandela (even prior to becoming president, but certainly after he became president of South Africa) insisted on compliance with his country´s constitution. He insisted on it. Obama looks at the US Constitution as an obstacle and makes end runs around it every day, practically. In that sense... These are the kind of

But I´ll tell you, there are very few people that could have undergone what he went through and maintained any sense of dignity or optimism.(Snip) "Resentment is like drinking poison and then hoping it will kill your enemies." Is that not great? And it´s great because it´s exactly right. Resentment doesn´t do anybody any good.

The U.S. federal health insurance website HealthCare.gov, which has had technology problems since its October 1 launch, is now experiencing errors in transmitting applications about 10 percent of the time, a government spokeswoman said on Friday. The online insurance marketplace relays information about new customers in ´834´ transaction forms to the private insurance companies that provide the health plans. HealthCare.gov serves people in 36 states, while 14 states are running their own websites. "We believe nine of 10 transactions are being successfully transmitted," the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, or CMS, spokeswoman Julie Bataille said at a news briefing.

While Mr. Cochran, who turns 76 on Saturday, has the support of many leading Republicans in the state, he is already facing opposition from Chris McDaniel, 41, a state senator aligned with the Tea Party who announced his candidacy in October and has won the support of some conservative groups.

"Lying to Congress is a federal offense, and Clapper ought to be fired and prosecuted for it," the Wisconsin Republican said in an interview with The Hill. He said the Justice Department should prosecute Clapper for giving false testimony during a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing in March. During that hearing, Sen.

At a White House Hanukkah reception, Obama said that it was important for the United States to test Iran´s intentions, and pledged to keep working for a comprehensive deal to deprive Tehran of a nuclear weapon.

To fully appreciate what former South African president Nelson Mandela was able to accomplish, it is necessary to hearken back to the South Africa he found when he emerged from prison in 1990, and what the country was like in those critical four years between his release and his election to the presidency in 1994. Put simply, South Africa was a violent, dangerous and heavily-armed place teetering precariously on the edge of an all-out race war. And in the early 1990s, it was entirely unclear which way the country would go. On one side, embittered white rejectionists were refusing to

Nelson Mandela was the most famous black man in history. He transcended race barriers to become an exemplar of human generosity of spirit. His towering personality made possible the peaceful transfer of power in South Africa from white minority to black majority rule. If he was less effective as president of his country than he had been as the symbol of resistance to apartheid, he demonstrated statesmanship unmatched in Africa. He inspired love as much as respect, and became regarded by hundreds of millions of people as a secular saint. More was asked of him, and sometimes claimed for him,

Former South African President Nelson Mandela has died at age 95 of complications from a recurring lung infection. The anti-apartheid leader and Nobel Peace Prize laureate was a beloved figure around the world, a symbol of reconciliation from a country with a brutal history of racism. Mandela was released from prison in 1990 after nearly 30 years for plotting to overthrow South Africa´s apartheid government. In 1994, in a historic election, he became the nation´s first black leader. Mandela stepped down in 1999 after a single term and retired from political and public life.

Westbrook was shot outside the home of Joe Hendricks on Cottage Crest Court about 4 am. Westbrook lived about two-and-a-half miles from where he was shot and had apparently wandered away from home. Walker County Sheriff Steve Wilson said Hendricks has not been charged. However he said the investigation continues and did not rule out the possibility of charges in the future. The sheriff said Hendricks heard a suspicious sound outside the house and called 911.

After a disastrous presidential campaign in 2012, can Texas Governor Rick Perry mount a credible bid for the White House in 2016? Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions. Perry is trying to erase the memory of his disastrous 2012 GOP presidential campaign which included “brain-farts” and “oops” debate moments with his folksy, charming, and uniquely American manner. Curious about Perry’s comeback strategy, I asked Texan and GOP presidential media guru, Mark McKinnon and he said,

A startling rift appeared Tuesday on the Supreme Court as the three female Justices came out swinging like Brunnhildes — women warriors — for what they erroneously labeled an “entitlement” to employer-provided contraceptives and morning-after pills. The Justices were hearing oral arguments in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., a case hyped by the Democratic Party as a test for women’s rights. Justices Kagan, Ginsberg, and Sotomayor sprang on Hobby Lobby’s attorney , interrupting his every sentence and pummeling him with questions taken right out of the Democratic Party’s “war on women” playbook.

The past couple of weeks have marked a turning point in American ugliness as the mob has turned its full fury on first lady Michelle Obama. From criticism of her trip to China to a recent “tell-all” by former White House assistant press secretary Reid Cherlin in the New Republic about Obama’s allegedly tyrannical behavior, the gloves have been removed. As described, she was a perfectionist — super-attentive to detail and laser-focused on advance planning. And this is bad because? Worse, according to a former (anonymous) staffer, there was no barometer for meeting Obama’s high standards. “The first lady having

Where’s the beef? That’s what the carnivores were wondering as they arrived at the Boathouse in Central Park for the “Noah” party. The buffet tables were loaded with various forms of edible vegetable matter, but there was no meat, fish or cheese — because director Darren Aronofsky is vegan, as was the hero of his biblical epic, as played by Russell Crowe.

Jeb Bush to run for president in 2016.

Obamacare supporters are taking a bit of a victory lap today after yesterday’s administration announcement that six million people have signed up for private plans under the law, equaling the revised projection put out by the Congressional Budget Office after the botched launch of the exchanges last October. It’s a weak cause for celebration, given that success, according to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, was originally "at least" seven million people getting covered under the law by the end of March. And as an Obamacare factoid, the six million sign-ups figure just doesn’t tell us all that much

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.
