ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith Says, ‘I Dream … Every Black Person in America Vote Republican’ at Impact Symposium at Vanderbilt University (VIDEO)

Stephen A. Smith is never at a loss for words and this time nails it 100% …

ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith said at an Impact Symposium at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, “What I dream is that for one election, just one, every black person in America vote Republican.” Never afraid to tackle controversial topics, Stephen A. Smith may have just given one of his most insightful points of view that even his counterpart on ‘First Take’ Skip Bayless would have to agree with. Stephen A. Smith’s comment makes complete and total sense if you look at it as opposed to the knee-jerk reaction he will get from the LEFT and many blacks. I have said for years, why do blacks vote for just one party, a Democrat party that was far from good to blacks in America, see pre-Civil War. The fact of the matter is, anyone who puts all their eggs in one basket are setting themselves up for failure. Who looks at one car, one house, one computer, one job and says without looking at anything else or questioning anything … I’ll take it.

When a political party knows they have you in your back pocket and knows they can take you for granted and still get your vote, that is true disenfranchisement and you are finished. The Democrat party knows that will get 85-90% of the black vote and not lift a finger for it. It’s expected. The only question is whether black America will listen to  Stephen A. Smith’s words.

“What I dream is that for one election, just one, every black person in America vote Republican,” he said. “Because from what I’ve read, and I’m open to correction, but from what I’ve read, Barry Goldwater is going against Lyndon B. Johnson. He’s your Republican candidate. He is completely against the Civil Rights Movement. Lyndon B. Johnson was in favor of it. What happens is, he wins office, Barry Goldwater loses office, but there was a senate, a Republican senate, that pushed the votes to the president’s desk. It was the Democrats who were against Civil Rights legislation. So because President Lyndon B. Johnson was a Democrat, black America assumed the Democrats were for it.”

He also added, “Black folks in America are telling one party, ‘We don’t give a damn about you.’ They’re telling the other party ‘You’ve got our vote.’ Therefore, you have labeled yourself ‘disenfranchised’ because one party knows they’ve got you under their thumb. The other party knows they’ll never get you and nobody comes to address your interest.”

I would add, if Republicans continue to do the same to Conservatives … Conservativees should do the same and teach the establishment GOP a lesson they will never forget.

YouGov Poll of Likely Democratic Voters: Elizabeth Warren Leads Hillary Clinton in Iowa and New Hampshire

MAYBE HILLARY CLINTON IS NOT INVISIBLE AFTER ALL, POLLS SHOW IF UBER LIB ELIZABETH WARREN RUNS … ITS ANYONE’S TO WIN

A funny thing happened on the way to the 2016 Hillary Clinton coronation, maybe Hillary is not as invisible as the political pundits think as populist Lefties do not support her. A YouGov poll of likely Democratic voters for MoveOn.org and Democracy for America showed Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) ahead of Hillary Clinton in Iowa, 31 % to 24% and in New Hampshire, Warren leads Clinton, 30% to 27%. Don’t worry Hillary, there is nothing to be concerned with here, it is not as though Iowa and New Hampshire and two early and influential primary states. Oh wait, they are. Warren and her anti-business ideology  is the darling of the far Left. Is Hillary Clinton too yesterday for the base of the Democrat party?

However, Elizabeth Warren has claimed in the past that she would not run. One has to wonder whether she can turn down this once in a life-time opportunity. Also, if she does change her mind and  runs, and Hillary does as well, Hillary Clinton will be pulled so far Left in the Democrat primaries, there will be no coming back to the middle in the general election

New Polls in IA and NH Show Big Opening for Elizabeth Warren

Shock poll: Warren leads Clinton in Iowa, N.H:

Populist groups cheering “Run Warren Run,” today released 2016 election polls from Iowa and New Hampshire showing Sen. Elizabeth Warren ahead of dominant Democrat Hillary Clinton.

The YouGov poll of likely Democratic voters for MoveOn.org and Democracy for America also found that 79 percent want Warren and majorities support her anti-Wall Street positions.

Warren has said she doesn’t plan to challenge Clinton, though several others have indicated that they are looking at a bid, including Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.

The groups cautioned that the poll mostly shows that voters are extremely open to her candidacy rather than her being a Clinton killer. They hope to use the poll to encourage Warren to change her position and get into the race.

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker Leads GOP Field in New Des Moines Register/Bloomberg Iowa Poll

The latest Des Moines Register poll has Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker in the leads the GOP pack for presidential candidates for 2016. The poll takes into account Mitt Romney removing himself from the race and allocated his percentages accordingly.According to the poll results, Gov. Walker leads the large GOP pack with 15% of GOP presidential contenders. The poll shows that Walker is also the No. 2 most popular choice for likely caucus-goers who want an establishment candidate, and he’s the No. 2 for those who want an anti-establishment candidate. It was just last week that Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker wowed them in Iowa and asked for Iowans to take a further look at him. Between now and 2016 is an eternity, but it is important to get noticed in the beginning otherwise you will be pealed off before you even get to the primaries.

Iowa Freedom Summit 2015 Scott Walker Speech

Presidential stage newcomer Scott Walker, the conservative reform pit bull who inspired death threats from the left, has become the one to watch in the race for the Republican nomination a year out from the Iowa caucuses.

At 15 percentage points, he leads a big, tightly packed field of potential contenders in a new Des Moines Register/Bloomberg Politics Iowa Poll of likely Republican caucusgoers. The caucuses are scheduled for Feb. 1, 2016.

The Wisconsin governor is also the No. 2 most popular choice for likely caucusgoers who want an establishment candidate, and he’s the No. 2 for those who want an anti-establishment candidate, the poll shows.

“He’s in a sweet spot,” pollster J. Ann Selzer said. “People who don’t want an ultra-conservative think he’s OK. People who don’t want a moderate think he’s OK.”

Just one point behind is Rand Paul, a U.S. senator from Kentucky and the son of three-time presidential candidate Ron Paul, a hero to dissidents who want to shake up government. Paul draws support from the same anti-establishment well.

Mitt Romney Tells Supporters Says He Will Not Run for President in 2016

Mitt Romney decides against running for president again in 2016 …

Mitt Romney, the GOP presidential candidate who lost the 2012 presidential election, told supporters today that he will not run again for president in 2016. Romney stated, “I am convinced that we could win the nomination, but fully realize it would have been difficult test and a hard fight.” Not sure if I am buying that, because if one is convinced they would win, they would pursue the effort. In the end, as much as Romney wanted to be president, I think he feels that his presence will only prevent a better candidate from getting the nomination who has a better shot of winning the general election in 2016.

Mitt Romney told supporters Friday that he would not run for president in 2016, ending three weeks of public speculation and sparing the Republican Party a potentially bruising nominating battle between its past nominee and its rising stars.

“After putting considerable thought into making another run for president, I’ve decided it is best to give other leaders in the party the opportunity to become our next nominee,” Romney said in a statement he read to supporters on a conference call Friday morning.

In his remarks, first reported by radio host Hugh Hewitt, Romney said that he had enough support from potential donors to be “more than competitive” and that the positive reaction he heard from Republican activists was “surprising and heartening.” He noted that he had been leading in recent public polls.

Part of me says, of course an individual who already ran for president and lost in the general election against a weak opponent like Barack Obama should never run again. Then there is the other side of me that wishes Romney would run to split the fundraising, support and vote with GOP presidential wannbe  RINO Jeb Bush.

Hugh HewittNot Running. “I’ve decided it is best to give other leaders in the Party the opportunity to become our next nominee.”

Let me begin by letting you know who else is on this call, besides Ann and me. There are a large number of people who signed on to be leaders of our 2016 finance effort. In addition, state political leadership from several of the early primary states are on the line. And here in New York City, and on the phone, are people who have been helping me think through how to build a new team, as well as supporters from the past who have all been kind enough to volunteer their time during this deliberation stage. Welcome, and thank you. Your loyalty and friendship, and your desire to see the country with new, competent and conservative leadership warms my heart.

After putting considerable thought into making another run for president, I’ve decided it is best to give other leaders in the Party the opportunity to become our next nominee. (read the rest HERE)

In a copy of Mitt Romney’s expected remarks to supporters, and confirmed by an aide to the former Bay State governor:

“After putting considerable thought into making another run for president, I’ve decided it is best to give other leaders in the Party the opportunity to become our next nominee,” Romney’s statement reads. “… You can’t imagine how hard it is for (my wife) Ann and me to step aside, especially knowing of your support and the support of so many people across the country. But we believe it is for the best of the Party and the nation.”

Donald Trump Says in Iowa: GOP Frontrunners Mitt Romney & Jeb Bush are Doomed to Lose … Regrets Not Having Run in 2012, ‘I Would’ve Won the Race Against Obama’

TRUMP HAS  NOTHING GOOD TO SAY ABOUT MITT ROMNEY AND JEB BUSH …

In a sit-down interview with The Des Moines Register, Donald Trump said the two presumed GOP frontrunners, Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush, are doomed to lose. The Donald also went on to say that he regretted that he hadn’t run himself in 2012. Although it is easy to be a Monday morning quarterback, Trump is 47% 100% correct on a couple of issues. One, Romney had his chance against a weak, unpopular president in 2012 and failed. Romney failed because he tried to back into the victory, rather than play offense and win the game. Two, “we’re Bushed out,” especially when Jeb Bush is for “common core” and is pro ‘illegal” amnesty. Much like what Se. Ted Cruz had stated, Romney and Bush represent the “mushy middle” and have no chance of winning.

Donald Trump

Trump VIDEO with Des Moines Register

In a sit-down interview with The Des Moines Register, he said the two presumed GOP frontrunners, Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush, are doomed to lose — and he expressed regret that he hadn’t run himself in 2012.

Trump said he should be in the White House right now.

Trump said he’s not sure which of the potential GOP 2016ers he’d prefer right now, but he’s certain it would be a mistake for Romney to seek a third term.

“He failed. He choked. He’s like a deal-maker that didn’t close the deal. He shouldn’t be running again. He had a great opportunity to win against a president that was absolutely lame, and he didn’t do it. … The 47 percent statement, which was a disaster, is not going away. Romneycare is not going away. All of his problems are not going away. He should get out and get out quickly.”

As for Bush, a former governor of Florida whose family has sent two men to the White House, Trump said: “Frankly we’ve had enough of the Bushes. We’re bushed out.”

At Iowa Freedom Summit this weekend, Donald Trump slams Mitt Romney, Jeb Bush saying they are just not the answer for Republicans. Trump said as to the Presidential election in 2016 and who should be running for the GOP, “It can’t be Mitt because Mitt ran and failed.” Trump further went on to say, “the last thing we need is another Bush. Truer words have ever been spoken and imagine that, they come from The Donald. The last thing the GOP needs in 2016 is an establishment candidate that is more Democrat-like than that who would be in favor of Republican principles and the platform. Donald Trump stated in Iowa that he would “build a beauty of a fence along the southern border.”  Whether Trump would or not, or whether he would even give up the perks of his private life to run for president, is irrelevant. What is relevant is that we cannot have another loser, establishment, mushy middle candidate in the form of John McCain or Mitt Romney as the standard bearer.

CBS News: Donald Trump slams Mitt Romney, Jeb Bush:

“It can’t be Mitt, because Mitt ran and failed,” Trump said.

Trump said he liked Romney, formerly a governor of Massachusetts, but he suggested Romney’s infamous “47 percent” comments and his affiliation with a Massachusetts health care reform plan akin to Obamacare should disqualify him.

Plus, Romney “choked” in 2012, failing to unseat Obama in an election that Republicans could have won, Trump argued.

“You can’t have Bush,” Trump added. “The last thing we need is another Bush.”

Trump criticized Bush’s support of common core federal education standards, and he panned Bush’s comment that many illegal immigrants come to the United States as an “act of love” to help their families.

“Half of these people are criminals,” Trump said. “They’re coming for a lot of other reasons, and it’s not love.”

Trump also suggested the unpopularity Jeb Bush’s brother, former President George W. Bush, helped usher President Obama into office: “His brother really gave us Obama.”

Trump offered an ambitious preview of his prospective presidential agenda. ” If I run for president, and if I win, I would totally succeed in creating jobs, defeating ISIS, and stopping the Islamic terrorists… reducing the budget deficit… securing our southern border… stopping nuclear weapons in Iran and elsewhere… saving Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid without cutting it down to the bone… repealing Obamacare and replacing it with something far better.”

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-RX) Asks South Carolina Tea Party Conference, “Do We Go Back to the Same Old, Same Old? Or Do We Stand for Principle?” … Does the GOP Need Another Mushy Middle Nominee

SENATOR TED CRUZ ASKS DO REPUBLICANS REALLY NEED ANOTHER “MUSHY MIDDLE” PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE?

At the South Carolina Tea Party Coalition Convention in Myrtle Beach, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) posed some very important questions to those in attendance and to Republicans and GOP-leaning Independents around the country, “Do we [the Republican party] go back to the same old, same old? Or do we stand for principle?”  Cruz once again brought up the GOP establishment career politician fascination with the “mushy middle”.

“There is even a bigger question facing this country in 2016. Do we go back to the same old, same old? Or do we stand for principle? Now there are a lot of voices in Washington … the only way to win is to run to the mushy middle.  They’ll tell you this its all about electability. You know what electability is, nominate the candidate who is the closest to the Democrat. The funny thing about that, every one of these Washington graybeards who goes on television and talks about the way to win, is to run to the mushy middle. Have you noticed that these consultant keep losing? Over and over and over again. Who in their right mind would listen to some one who keeps getting whupped, giving us advice on how not to get whupped.”

Listen I very much agree very much with Ronald Reagan’s observations, that Republicans win, not when we “paint not in pastels but in bold colors (VIDEO).”

“If we nominate another candidate in the mold of a Bob Dole, John McCain or Mitt Romney, all of whom are good, honorable and decent men, the same people who stayed home in ’08 an ’12 will stay home in ’16 and the Democrat will win again.”

Ted Cruz: The Base Will Stay Home if Romney is Nominee:

At the annual South Carolina Tea Party conference in the early nominating state of South Carolina, Senator Ted Cruz, R-Texas, gave an aggressive argument to several hundred activists to nominate a principled Republican who “paints not in pastels but in bold colors.”

The reference to Ronald Reagan was the first of two during his 40-minute speech at an aging beach-front resort in Myrtle Beach. But the potential presidential candidate did mention Mitt Romney several times. Cruz said Romney, who put forward Friday a public declaration that he is considering a third presidential run, was the latest Republican nominee to pacify conservative voters leading to depressed conservative turnout and a Democrat for president.

“Do we go back to the same old, same old? Or do we stand for principle,” Cruz told the mostly middle-aged and retired crowd, referring to the uninspiring “mushy middle” where he said Republican presidential candidates have gravitated in recent elections.

“If we nominate another candidate in the mold of a Bob Dole, John McCain or Mitt Romney … the same people who stayed home in ’08 an ’12 will stay home in ’16 and the Democrat will win again,” Cruz said.

Comedian Jay Leno Says Hillary Clinton Seems Very Slow and Has Lost Her Fire on ‘Real Time’ with Bill Maher

HILLARY CLINTON HAS LOST THE FIRE …

LEFTY comedian Jay Leno stated on HBO’s ‘Real Time’ with Bill Maher, I don’t see the fire and she seems to be very slow making reference to Hillary Clinton. Leno than asked what was the age between Hillary and Elizabeth Warren, 15  years? Nope, 18 months. Isn’t it interesting that it is the LEFT, not the RIGHT that is making Hillary’s age an issue. Trust me, Republicans have enough material to go after the Democratic presumptive nominee Hillary Clinton in 2016. The GOP does not need to reference her age, all they need to do is remind Americans of her miserable record and her foreign policy forever linked to Obama. How did that Hillary Russian reset turn out or Benghazi. In the end, can anyone even name one of her accomplishments, come one anyone?  But has Ms. Clinton would say, “what different does it make?”

Since most of these attacks come from the LEFT, it seems like this is their way to sabotage  Hillary’s run, even though she is way out ahead in the polls because of same recognition. Leno’s comments  sounds an awful lot like the meme of Hillary does not have that new car smell and and Barack Obama making the reference that the American people, “you know, they’re going to want that new car smell” and “one that doesn’t have as much mileage as me.”

The Daily Caller:

Comedian Jay Leno says he likes presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, but she just seems so old.

Speaking of Clinton on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” Friday, Leno commented, “I don’t see the fire.”

“Her and Elizabeth Warren are almost the same age,” Leno said, comparing Hillary to the Massachusetts senator beloved by the left wing of the Democratic Party. “And I see Elizabeth Warren come out — ‘boom’ — throwing punches. ‘Boom, boom, boom, boom.’”

“And I like her,” Leno continued, speaking of Hillary. “But she seems to be sort of, she seems very slow and very — I don’t see that fire, you know, that fire that I used to see, that I see in Elizabeth Warren. Because I say to people, ‘how much younger is Elizabeth Warren than Hillary?’ And people go, ‘oh, 15 years.’ No! 18 months.”

Legal Insurrection nails the 2016 Democrat Dilemma, Hillary Clinton “very old, slow” and lacking that new car smell, while Elizabeth Warren is unelectable.

Look Out Hillary Clinton … Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) Just May Have Thrown Her Hat in the Presidential 2016 … Warren Slams Repeal of Dodd-Frank Provision

DON’T LOOK NOW HILLARY CLINTON … YOU JUST GOT SOME SERIOUS COMPETITION.

In the debate prior to the $1.1 trillion  … liberal Democrat Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) just put herself front and center of the populist Democrat movement. yesterday, the House approved a$1.1 trillion bill in order to avoid a government shutdown. It now gets sent to the Senate. Whether you agree with her or not, no matter, it is Hillary Clinton who should be the most nervous these days. There is no way that the progressives on the LEFT are not going to pressure and demand that Elizabeth Warren run for the Democrat nominee in 2016.

Just hours before a midnight deadline approached, the House of Representatives voted to approve a $1.1 trillion spending package to keep the federal government open — sending the measure over to the Senate for final passage.

The House voted 219-206 to approve the measure with 57 Democrats joining 162 Republicans to pass the package.

Thanks GOP … you just kicked the can down the road. Didn’t you folks run on defunding Obamacare and Obama’s illegal presidential executive order on illegal immigration?

NAACP President Cornell William Brooks Reacts to Dr. Carson’s Comments on Race Relations, I Believe” He “Should Stick to the Operating Room Rather than the Campaign Trail.”

NAACP AND LIBERAL MEDIA ARE SCARED OF DR. BEN CARSON …

In an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer , NAACP President Cornell William Brooks was asked to comment on Dr. Ben Carson’s remarks that race relations have become worse under Barack Obama. Cornell William Brooks said, “I believe Dr. Carson, with all due respect, should stick to the operating room rather than the campaign trail.” Carson had previously stated that the president and other progressives of trying to “manipulate, particularly minority communities to make them feel that they are victims.”

Wolf Blitzer played those comments today for NAACP President Cornell William Brooks and asked for his reaction. Brooks said, “I believe Dr. Carson, with all due respect, should stick to the operating room rather than the campaign trail.”

He argued that no one can fairly blame President Obama for a criminal justice system were black males are over-incarcerated. Brooks added that Carson “is not particularly thoughtful on this issue.”

So the NAACP president does not want Ben Carson on the campaign trail? I bet they don’t. The Democrat party, the institutional black victim-hood machines like the NAACP and the race hustlers like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson would be exposed and finished. Imagine, just imagine if a black conservative was elected president and helped fixed the ills caused by Barack Obama? Imagine if blacks as well as all Americans were uplifted? Imagine a black president that was a uniter, instead of a divider?

He even went so far as to say that Obama and his progressive allies “manipulate… minority communities to make them feel that they are victims.”

Wolf Blitzer played those comments today for NAACP President Cornell William Brooks and asked for his reaction. Brooks said, “I believe Dr. Carson, with all due respect, should stick to the operating room rather than the campaign trail.”

He argued that no one can fairly blame President Obama for a criminal justice system were black males are over-incarcerated. Brooks added that Carson “is not particularly thoughtful on this issue.”

Over-incarcerated? Maybe some one should ask the NAACP president why a they are as a group committing a majority of the crime as a minority?

DEMOCRAT DODGEBALL … Democrat Senate Candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes Won’t Even Say If She Voted For Barack Obama

Why on earth would anyone from Kentucky vote for a candidate who could not answer just a simple question as, who did you vote for?

Hey Alison Lundergan Grimes, this is not supposed to be a trick question. Democrat Senate challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes continually evaded and dodged the “did you vote for Obama” question as she was looking to get the endorsement from the Louisville Courier-Journal editorial board.  As Patches O’Hoolihan would say, “If you can dodge a vote for Obama question, you can dodge a ball.”  Grimes is taking on Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell in Kentucky. According to RCP,  McConnell is ahead by 3% points and the polls are all started to trend in his direction.

Kentucky Democratic Senate candidate Alison Grimes, who is hoping to unseat Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, refused today to say whether she voted for President Obama.

Grimes, who was seeking the endorsement from the Louisville Courier-Journal editorial board, repeatedly dodged the question.

Sure, it’s a sad commentary on Obama. But it is also, quite simply, one of the most craven performances I have ever seen on the campaign trail.

Why would a Democrat candidate just answer the question and say, yes I voted for Obama? She is a Democrat, who honestly thinks that she voted for John McCain in 2008 or Mitt Romney in 2012? However, this is the painful extent that Democrats are willing to go to distance themselves from Barack Obama and his toxic presidency.
