Chris Christie & Carly Fiorina Quit 2016 Presidential Race After Poor Showing in New Hampshire Primary

 

AND THEN THERE WERE SIX FOR THE GOP …

Chris Christie and Carly Fiorina have dropped out of the Republican presidential race after a very poor showing in the New Hampshire primaries. Fiorina finished 7th with 4% of the vote and Christie finished 6th with about 7.5% of the vote. Carly Fiorina had a short and meteoric rise as she performed strong at times during the debates, but it just never translated to a rise in the polls. With regards to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, to be honest, his run for the GOP presidential nomination was over before it began. Pundits pondered why Christie’s campaign never got traction and why even after he knee-capped establishment darling Marco Rubio showing him to be robitoc, Christie gained nada in the polls. Really, is it that hard to understand? With all due respect to Christie, his presidential run ended when he decided to hug Barack Obama during the president’s photo-op trip to New Jersey after Hurricane Sandy and what looked like a date between Obama and Christie on the boardwalk at the Jersey shore. Sorry Chris, you were toast after that and no Republican was ever going to for get that image. We had said back in 2013 for Christie to not waste his time. I guess he should have listened.

Really Gov. Christie, did you ever thing the GOP base would ever forget these images?

Chris Christie dropped out of the race for president on Wednesday afternoon, two hours after a rival candidate quit.

Carly Fiorina, one of only two women in the U.S. presidential race, left her quixotic pursuit of the White House on Wednesday after a seventh-place New Hampshire primary finish in a field of eight candidates.

And Christie, the governor of New Jersey, soon followed suit after rumors of his campaign’s demise swirled all day.

Spokeswoman Samantha Smith confirmed the news to the Associated Press, saying that Christie broke the news of his decision to staff at his campaign headquarters in Morristown, New Jersey, late in the afternoon.

Christie is also calling donors and supporters to thank them for staying the course as his poll numbers gasped for air.

Before leaving the race Carly Fiorina blasted Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton and her minions for their reprehensible comments regarding feminism and threats of going to hell to women who dared not support Clinton.

Fiorina took one last shot at Democratic contender Hillary Clinton, kicking her while she was down after a stunning defeat in New Hampshire.

‘To young girls and women across the country, I say: do not let others define you,’ Fiorina wrote. ‘Do not listen to anyone who says you have to vote a certain way or for a certain candidate because you’re a woman. That is not feminism.’

Hillary Clinton Backer Urges Pulling Gloria Steinem & Madeleine Albright From Campaigning … Hillary’s War on Women … Next Up, Pander to Minorities

 

Hillary Clinton feeling the backlash from old, out of touch feminist comments …

Just how unlikable is Hillary Clinton and how bad is her message to the electorate, she is even driving women away from her campaign. Following the ridiculous and ill-advised comments from former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and Gloria Steinem, Clinton is now being begged by supporters to pull both Albright and Steinem from the campaign trail and shut them up. Let us not forget that Hillary Clinton laughed hysterically at Albright’s comment that, “There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other!”

Hillary Clinton has actually done the unthinkable, she has even managed to drive women away from her campaign. Just how bad a candidate is she? But of course, she is the victim.

Days after two of Hillary Clinton’s most prominent female surrogates, Madeleine K. Albright and Gloria Steinem, drew fire for their comments about young women supporting Senator Bernie Sanders, another Clinton surrogate proposed that the two women be pulled from campaigning for Mrs. Clinton.

On a conference call with elected officials supporting Mrs. Clinton on Tuesday, Deb Goldberg, the Massachusetts state treasurer, suggested that Ms. Albright and Ms. Steinem be “kept away” from Mrs. Clinton’s campaign, according to a person briefed on the call who could only discuss the private conversations without attribution.

Christina Reynolds, a spokeswoman for the Clinton campaign who was on the call, replied that she appreciated the feedback but did not elaborate on how the campaign would handle the two high-profile supporters, who in recent days called for young women to basically grow up and support Mrs. Clinton.

The dust-up began on Saturday when Ms. Albright, 78, the first female secretary of state, criticized Mr. Sanders’s “revolution” and said electing the first woman as president would be the real revolution. She then repeated one of her best-known phrases, telling the crowd, “There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other!”

Ms. Steinem, 81, and an iconic spokeswoman of the feminist movement, told the talk-show host Bill Maher that young women supported Mr. Sanders to attract the attention of boys.

“When you’re young, you’re thinking: ‘Where are the boys? The boys are with Bernie,” Ms. Steinem said.

The end result of this pathetically run campaign … a tie in Iowa, which many individuals believe Sanders probably won, and a devastating 22 point defeat in New Hampshire. This morning the Clinton Machine wakes up to evaluate the train wreck and last nights devastating loss to a 74 year old socialist where Hillary Clinton lost every voting demographic except the +65 crowd. Sorry, but this is just downright embarrassing that a woman who’s entire life has been based upon her running for president and 2016 is looking a lot like 2008. So now it appears that she can no longer count on the women vote … she will pander to the minorities instead.

US Supreme Court Halts President Obama’s Climate Change Initiative 5-4

 

BIG BLOW TO BARACK OBAMA’S CLIMATE CHANGE INITIATIVE …

In a 5-4 decision, the Supreme Court abruptly halted President Obama’s controversial new power plant regulations that is part of his global warming climate change initiative. 27 states and industry opponents that call the regulations “an unprecedented power grab” and that the regulations would greatly increase energy costs and put some of their industries out of business.  Appellate arguments are set to begin June 2, 2016. Thankfully, the SCOTUS put a hold on anything going forward as Powerline opines, “Obama’s EPA was betting that the slow legal process would mean that they’d have a lot of things in place, and many utilities would have complied with the EPA’s dictates, before the law was settled at the Supreme Court.”

Obama_sad

A divided Supreme Court on Tuesday abruptly halted President Obama’s controversial new power plant regulations, dealing a blow to the administration’s sweeping plan to address global warming.

In a 5-4 decision, the court halted enforcement of the plan until after legal challenges are resolved.

The surprising move is a victory for the coalition of 27 mostly Republican-led states and industry opponents that call the regulations “an unprecedented power grab.”

By temporarily freezing the rule the high court’s order signals that opponents have made a strong argument against the plan. A federal appeals court last month refused to put it on hold.

The court’s four liberal justices said they would have denied the request.

The plan aims to stave off the worst predicted impacts of climate change by reducing carbon dioxide emissions at existing power plants by about one-third by 2030.

“We disagree with the Supreme Court’s decision to stay the Clean Power Plan while litigation proceeds,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said in a statement.Earnest said the administration’s plan is based on a strong legal and technical foundation, and gives the states time to develop cost-effective plans to reduce emissions. He also said the administration will continue to “take aggressive steps to make forward progress to reduce carbon emissions.”

Socialist Bernie Sanders is the Future of the Democratic Party

 

HEY BLUE COLLAR DEMOCRATS, WAKE UP, TAKE A LOOK AT YOUR PARTY …

Democrats, this is not your grandfather’s Democrat party, its not your father’s Democrat party. Hell, this is not even Bill Clinton’s Democrat party. As reported at VOX, welcome to the new socialist Democrat party as Bernie Sanders is the future of the Democrat Party. That should scare the living daylights out of many Democrats. It is unbelievable that using the word liberal to describe a Democrat was the kiss of death, now this party openly accepts a self-avowed socialist.

The MSM wants to trash Conservatives and the Tea Party, yet having a socialist as the party nominee of a major political party is A-O-K.

Bernie Sanders_socialist

Fresh from his win in New Hampshire, it’s now clear that whether or not Bernie Sanders wins the Democratic nomination outright, he’s already won in another, perhaps more important way: His brand of politics is the future of the Democratic Party.

Sanders is the overwhelming choice of young voters, scoring a staggering 84 percent of voters under 30 in the Iowa caucuses and projected to do better in New Hampshire.

Any young and ambitious Democrat looking at the demographics of the party and the demographics of Sanders supporters has to conclude that his brand of politics is extremely promising for the future. There are racial and demographic gaps between Clinton and Sanders supporters, but the overwhelming reality is that for all groups, the young people are feeling the Bern.

53% of New Hampshire Women Have a Special Place in Hell Saved for Them … Bernie Wins Women over Hillary by 53% – 46%

 

DON’T LOOK NOW, 53% OF NEW HAMPSHIRE WOMAN WHO CAST VOTES IN THE DEMOCRAT PRIMARY ARE GOING TO HELL … ACTUALLY ALL BY THE +65 CROWD ARE GOING TO HELL …

Hillary is so unlikable, she even drove women away in NH …  Since the outset of the 2016 presidential campaign, Hillary Clinton has played the gender card to make up for the fact that no one can name a single accomplishment for the former first lady, US Senator and Secretary of State. Over this past weekend in New Hampshire her campaign sunk to a new low when Hillary Clinton surrogate, former Sec. of Sate Madeleine Albright, said much to the chuckling and laughing of Hillary,  “There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other!” Well that went over like a ton of bricks as Bernie Sanders trounced Hillary Clinton in last nights New Hampshire Primary 60% to 38%!!! Making matter worse for Hillary, Bernie Sanders won the woman vote 53% to 46%.

The end result … Bernie Sanders wins by 22 points over Hillary Clinton.

Hillary Clinton’s campaign motto … “There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other!” Wow, there’s a winning message. How her campaign does not do a total shake up and Madeline Albright tossed off the campaign trail would be a miracle.

Sanders won women by 53-46 percent, as well as prevailing far more widely among men, 65-34 percent. Sixty-nine percent of women under 45 backed Sanders (including 82 percent of those under 30 women), while Clinton won women 45 and older by 56-43 percent.

Among all voters under age 30, Sanders beat Clinton by a huge 84-15 percent margin, another result similar to Iowa.

Sanders won by 45 points among self-identified independents (72-27), and they accounted for 39 percent of NH voters – fewer than in past years, but still many more than in other states.

UPDATE I: Bernie Sanders Wins Every Demographic Group, Except +65.

Senator Bernie Sanders beat Hillary Clinton among nearly every demographic group in the Democratic New Hampshire primary, according to exit polls.

He carried majorities of both men and women. He won among those with and without college degrees. He won among gun owners and non-gun owners. He beat Mrs. Clinton among previous primary voters and those participating for the first time. And he ran ahead among both moderates and liberals.

Even so, there were a few silver linings for Mrs. Clinton. While Mr. Sanders bested her among all age groups younger than 45, the two candidates polled evenly among voters aged 45 to 64.

REALLY DONALD? Woman at Rally Calls Cruz A “Pussy” And Then Donald Trump Repeated It Onstage (VIDEO)

 

UNBELIEVABLE, HEY DONALD, I ACTUALLY LIKE MY PARTY NOMINEES WITH AN OUNCE OF CLASS AND WITHOUT A TRASH MOUTH …

One of the reasons why Donald Trump has skyrocketed into the lead in the GOP presidential primaries is his willingness and ability to say anything at any given moment. Of course when one is a billionaire one probably can get away with such things more often than not. However, there is a limit. At a recent rally in New Hampshire as The Donald was telling a story, a woman from the crowd shouted out that Ted Cruz was a pussy. In a faux gesture of admonishment Trump pretended to scold the woman. Of course that was before he asked her to shout it again and before Trump repeated what the a woman said calling Ted Cruz a “pussy”.

“Shout it out because I don’t want to — OK, you’re not allowed to say, and I never expect to hear that from you again. She said — I never expect to hear that from you again! — she said he’s a pussy. That’s terrible.”

You know folks, enough. I have come to the realization that Trump does not have the class or demeanor to be President of the United States. Enough is enough where this man thinks he can just say anything, even if its completely inappropriate. YOU ARE NO RONALD REAGAN. It is one thing to speak you mind when it comes to policy or going against the main stream Democrat propaganda media complex or the PC police. It is quite another to pretend like you have an ounce of class. These actions are nothing more than low rent acts of bullying and pandering the the lowest realms of societal behavior. Sorry, this is not how any president should act. So sorry if I don’t find Howard Stern humor funny in my politics in voting for my party’s nominee. Folks, stop making excuses for this clown, you would not be doing so if he was running for the Democrat presidential nominee.
