CNN/ORC Poll: NJ Governor Chris Christie Leads Possible 2016 GOP Contenders … Not Only is it Way too Early, Don’t Count On It Christie

A new CNN poll has New Jersey governor Chris Christie as the front-runner of possible Republican contenders for the 2016 GOP presidential nominee. For the Democrats it would appear that Hillary Clinton is already being coronated their nominee. However, for the GOP not only is this poll way too early, I would doubt that Chris Christie will be the Republican nominee unless they plan on losing another presidential election. Polls at this point are merely a popularity contest and with Christie’s recent landslide win for governor in NJ against a no-name opponent, he just happens to be the cause-celeb for today.

There is a long, long way to go and the potential winner for the GOP may not have even come forward yet. The same could be said for Democrats as well. Wasn’t Hillary Clinton the presumptive Democrat nominee winner as well before a certain novice, unprepared, 2 year US Senator from Illinois named Obama got into the race?

Who actually thinks the GOP base would vote for Christie after this?

And according to a CNN/ORC International survey, if Hillary Clinton decides against making another bid for the White House, Vice President Joe Biden would be the initial favorite to capture the Democratic nomination.

The poll, released Friday morning, indicates that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, fresh off his Garden State re-election landslide victory and widespread national media attention, jumped to the top of the pack of potential contenders for the GOP nomination.

Twenty-four percent of Republicans and independents who lean towards the GOP questioned in the survey say they’d be likely to support Christie for the Republican nomination, up seven percentage points from a CNN poll in early September. Back then, Christie and Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, the House Budget chairman and the 2012 Republican vice presidential nominee, were virtually tied at the top of the GOP list, with Christie at 17% and Ryan at 16%.

But Ryan, who’s stayed mostly away from the political spotlight the past few months, has dropped to 11%, putting him in third place, slightly behind Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, at 13%. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, who like Paul has made multiple trips this year to the states that kick off the presidential primary and caucus calendar, like Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina, stands at 10% in the survey, the only other Republican White House hopeful to get double-digit support.

Sorry, but a win in New Jersey is hardly a microcosm of winning a primary in the Republican party or a national election. New Jersey is it’s own animal, much like every state is.  Much of the GOP base considered Chris Christie a “Benedict Arnold” when he went overboard gushing over Barack Obama after Hurricane Sandy, sabotaging any chance Mitt Romney may have had. The GOP have run two ‘RINO’s’ in a row, the “mavericky” John McCain in 2008 and Mitt “Romneycare” Romney in 2012. Both candidates alienated the GOP base and in the end, really stood for nothing, except they ere not Obama. At what point will the establishment Republicans understand that the GOP electorate wants a candidate with substance and is not Democrat-light?

The focus this last week should have been on Obama’s shameful conduct in Benghazi. Instead, the  schizophrenic Christie allowed himself to be manipulated by Obama’s camp so easily, that one has to question the reasoning for his desertion of Governor Romney. I believe the egomaniacal Christie would rather run for POTUS in 2016 than 2020. And chose to spend the last week  stabbing Mitt in the back.

I understand that Christie had to ”break bread” with Obama when Obama came to tour New Jersey for disaster relief for Hurricane Sandy. We all should be fine with that.  But after Obama left, Christie has continued to act ”star-struck” toward the liberal Democrat. Both men are frequent apologizers for Islam so that may also be a shared bond.

And Christie refused an invitation to attend a  Sunday night rally with Mr. Romney in Pennsylvania, only 20 minutes from Trenton. You can google Benedict Arnold/Chris Christie or Traitor Chris Christie and see that the internet is abuzz with  stories about how Christie the RINO has been selling out to Obama.

Sarah Palin Says Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) Should be Primaried for their Support of the Senate’s Immigration (Amnesty) Bill

Actions have consequences and Elephants have long memories …

As reported at Breitbart.com, Sarah Pain “Throws Down Gauntlet” and ’stated that U.S. Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) should be primaried in 2016 for their support for the Senate’s Democrat lead Amnesty Immigration bill. I agree 100% and that goes for any Republican in the Senate or House that supports amnesty, breaking the rule of law and allowing individuals who entered the United States illegally more rights than law abiding Americans. Sadly, being inside the beltway in Washington, DC  corrupts the best of them. Rubio and Ayotte are just two of the most recent to lose their way and forget the promises they made to get elected. I idea that Republicans would fall for the same BS bill 1986 under Ronald Reagan is simply astonishing. One that never enforced the borders, even though the bill promised to. The difference, Reagan stated it was one of the biggest mistakes he ever made, these two clowns along with other GOP Senators are embracing it as if Lucy is actually not going to pull the football out from Charlie Brown as be goes to kick it. Palin and the Conservative base are going to make examples out of the Judas’ in 2014 and 2016.

“Conservatives are getting ready for the 2014 and 2016 primaries. We have long memories, and there will be consequences for those who break campaign promises and vote for this amnesty bill,” Palin told Breitbart News.

“Competition makes everyone work harder, be better, and be held accountable. This applies to politics, too. No one is ‘entitled’ to anything.”

She continued, “Rigorous debate in competitive primaries allows candidates the opportunity to explain their flip-flops. So think of contested primaries as a win-win for politicians and their voters.”

Palin responded to Breitbart News’s request for comment about an interview she did earlier on Tuesday with John Gibson on Fox News radio in which she said Rubio and Ayotte “turned their back” on voters and should be primaried to be held accountable. Rubio and Ayotte will be up for reelection in 2016.

Sarah Palin went on to say that politicians need to be held accountible for their actions and the promises they made to get elected. Palin said Rubio had promised that “border security would come first,” and he would not support “legalization of illegal immigrants” and “amnesty” before border security. What a difference an ego makes. Boy that didn’t take long for Rubio to learn the back-stabbing, lying ways of Washington. Sarah Palin said in her interview with John Gibson, that one time I did say good things about Marco Rubio as I thought he was an honest politician. Well, we all know better now.

Video Hat Tip - Conservatives for Palin: Sarah Palin Interview with John Gibson

Palin responded to Breitbart News’s request for comment about an interview she did earlier on Tuesday with John Gibson on Fox News radio in which she said Rubio and Ayotte “turned their back” on voters and should be primaried to be held accountable. Rubio and Ayotte will be up for reelection in 2016.

“Every politician should be held accountable for breaking their campaign promises,” Palin said during an interview on the “John Gibson Radio Show” on Fox News radio. “They turned their back on the American public, so why should they not be held accountable?”

Palin said Rubio had promised that “border security would come first,” and he would not support “legalization of illegal immigrants” and “amnesty” before border security while running in the Florida Republican Senate primary against Charlie Crist in 2010. She said Ayotte, whom she endorsed, had on her campaign website in 2010 that there were “no excuses” not to secure the border and also said she would not support amnesty.

As for Rubio, you have lost my vote forever.

Former VT Gov. Howard Dean Says He is Open to Another Presidential Run in 2016

Run Forest Howard, Run …. Could we have Dean Scream II?

Former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean, who ran and lost in 2004 to be the Democrat presidential nominee, said that he is open to run for president in 2016. BRING IT!!! Could Howard Dean make life miserable for Hillary Clinton in 2016? Clinton seems to be the already coronated, presumptive Democrat presidential nominee. Of course we heard that same story in 2008. As for Howard Dean, he would run LEFT of Hillary Clinton and certainly appeal the far-LEFT part of the Democrat base and possibly pull Clinton further left that she wants to run. Dean stated, “She [Hillary Clinton] is not going to have a pass. There will be other people who will run.” Of course it is still to be seen if the others who run are viable A-list candidates.

Former Vermont governor Howard Dean, who in 2004 lost his bid to become the Democratic presidential nominee, says he’ll consider another run for president in 2016.

Dean — an outspoken liberal — told CNN’s Peter Hamby that he will run if other candidates aren’t addressing the issues that are important to him.

“I am not driven by my own ambition,” Dean said. “What I am driven by is pushing the country in a direction that it desperately needs to be pushed, pushing other politicians who aren’t quite as frank as I am who need to be more candid with the American people about what needs to happen. I am not trying to hedge. It’s a hard job running. It’s really tough. I am doing a lot of things I really enjoy. But you should never say never in this business.”

Democrat Howard Dean Says, ”Everyone Needs to Pay More Taxes, Not Just Rich”

Allen West for President in 2016?

RUN ALLEN, RUN!!!

If you thought you have seen the last of Col. Allen West, think again. Former US Rep. Allen West (FL-R) was interviewed by NPR and hinted to what his future plans may be.  Hinted, hmm … West’s hint was as subtle as a sledgehammer, “And always remember, Abraham Lincoln only served one term in Congress, too.”  I would dare say that Allen West has more in common with Lincoln than does the current occupant of the White House.


MARTIN: So what’s next for you?

WEST: Look, you know, God closes a door so that he can open up greater doors. I will continue to, you know, stand up and fight for this country. That’s my goal. I have two daughters, 19 and 16, and I want to make sure that they grow up in a great America that provides them all the opportunities that it provided to their mother and father.

MARTIN: Congressman Allen West is completing his term in Congress. He was kind enough to join us from a House recording studio on Capitol Hill here in Washington, D.C.

WEST: And always remember, Abraham Lincoln only served one term in Congress, too.

MARTIN: Duly noted. Congressman West, thank you so much for speaking with us.

The Lonely Conservative is not the only one who hopes he runs. I am guessing the MSM and Democrats will still call the individuals racist for voting for West as well.  I can’t wait for the MSM to embrace Allen West for President like they did Barack Obama.

LVRJ Rips Obama over Benghazi Terrorist Blunder, Lies and Cover Up … Obama unworthy commander-in-chief

No truer words have ever been spoken … the Las Vegas Review Journal reports that President Barack Obama is unworthy of being Commander in Chief.

The LVRJ blast Barack Obama for his handling of the Benghazi attacks that gave rise to the death of four Americans including US Ambassador Stevens. The Obama administration botched Benghazi before, during and after the attacks. We are always very critical of the MSM; however, we give kudos when it is deserved. It certainly is here.

The Obama administration sat by doing nothing for seven hours that night, ignoring calls to dispatch help from our bases in Italy, less than two hours away. It has spent the past seven weeks stretching the story out, engaging in misdirection and deception involving supposed indigenous outrage over an obscure anti-Muslim video, confident that with the aid of a docile press corps this infamous climax to four years of misguided foreign policy can be swept under the rug, at least until after Tuesday’s election.

I have to admit I am impressed by the LVRJ and their extremely truthful accounts of this story and Obama’s failure as Commander in Chief. However, the MSM has all but avoided it, namely the TV media. Instead of providing answers to things that he knows first hand, Obama has dodged the questions so the the outcome is done after the election. Is that what we need as a Commander in Chief, a president that would hold off on the truth of the death of 4 Americans for his own political gain?

Not only did the White House do nothing, there are now reports that a counterterrorism team ready to launch a rescue mission was ordered to stand down.

Read the full story HERE, it is an eye opener, especially coming from the MSM. Could this have an affect in Nevada voting? The end result is that Obama has lost the right yo be president.

Kentucky Democrat Primary: Barack Obama Defeats ‘Uncommitted’ Vote 57.9% to 42.1% … Loses 41% of Vote in Arkansas to John Wolf

4 in 10 vote against Obama in Kentucky and Arkansas Democrat primaries …

In a tighter than expected race in the Democrat primary in Kentucky, incumbent President Barack Obama won a tough fought battle against the “Uncommitted” vote, 57.9% to 42.1%.  Seriously. Obama ran unopposed in the KY Democrat primary and lost 42.1% of the vote. It is not even like he was competing against a jailed felon, federal inmate No. 11593-051 Keith Judd, like in the West Virginia primary where Obama lost 41% of the vote.Talk about your protest votes against Obama.

Barack Obama struggles mightily tonight in the Kentucky and Arkansas Democrat primaries. If Obama’s battle against the ‘uncommitted’ vote was not bad enough in the Blue Grass state, Obama also lost 41% of the vote in Arkansas to Democrat challenger unknown  John Wolf.

Four in ten Democratic voters chose someone other than President Obama on Tuesday in primaries in Arkansas and Kentucky.

In Arkansas, John Wolfe — a perennial, long-shot candidate — took 41 percent of the vote in the Democratic primary, with 71 percent of precincts reporting. Obama came in just under 60 percent. The Associated Press did not call the race for Obama until close to midnight.

And in Kentucky, 42 percent of Democrats chose “uncommitted” rather than cast a vote for the incumbent president. Obama took 58 percent, with 99 percent of precincts reporting.

Live Arkansas primary results see HERE.

I think it is safe to say that after Obama’s embarrassing primary results in West Virginia, Arkansas and Kentucky, do not look for Barack Obama to be visiting these states in the general election. Color the states Red, as well as Obama’s face after these humiliating primaries.

Hillary Clinton and her political brain trust must be kicking themselves that they did not challenge Obama in the Democrat primary. She would have been a shoe in to defeat Obama.

YIKES … Barack Obama Only Up by 7% Over Unknown John Wolfe, Jr. in Arkansas Democrat Primary

RUT-ROH … Imagine the embarrassment of Obama losing a primary to an unknown?

President Barack Obama might be having a Southwest commercial moment in the upcoming Arkansas primary and might just “Wanna Get Away”. According to a new poll of Arkansas Dems, Obama leads his unknown primary challenger, Tennessee lawyer John Wolfe, Jr., by a mere 7%. WOW. Just how embarrassing would it be for incumbent President Obama to lose to a complete unknown? The Weekly Standard interviewed Democrat primary challenger Wolfe who said, the poll results were “unbelievable” and said a defeat for Obama in the Arkansas primary would be “politically cataclysmic.” YA THINK!!! Heck, if an unknown actually finished within double digits of a sitting president in a primary is a big deal.

Obama is likely to experience a similar wave of discontent from Fourth District Democratic voters in Arkansas.

In our latest Talk Business-Hendrix College Poll, conducted last Thursday, May 10, 2012, 38% of Democratic primary voters in the Fourth say they’re casting ballots for John Wolfe, a Tennessee attorney who filed paperwork to qualify for the Arkansas Democratic primary.

Less than half — just 45% — say they presently support Obama.

45% – Barack Obama
38% – John Wolfe
17% – Undecided

As stated by Doug Ross, apparently Arkansas Democrats couldn’t find a convicted felon to run against Obama like they did in West Virginia. Classic! Recently, Obama struggled in the WV Democrat primary against Federal Inmate No. 11593-051 Keith Judd who garnered 41% of the vote.

More from the Weekly Standard’s interview with  John Wolfe, Jr.

Wolfe predicted that the voters would move his way in the final days before the May 22 primary, despite his shoestring campaign budget. “There’s not been a single TV ad. There’s not been a single radio ad,” he said.

Wolfe is also competing against Obama in Texas’s May 29 primary.

Wolfe has criticized Obama for being too close to Wall Street and its interests (for example, Obama’s latest fundraiser with private equity lenders last night in New York City) and seeks to be a more principled Democrat than the 44th president.

Hillary Clinton was unavailable for comment as to why she never ran against Obama in the 2012 Democrat Primaries.

230,000 Unemployed Americans Losing Jobless Benefits Over Weekend as Obama Golfs & Fund Raises as First Gay President

Question: Who is out of touch? Answer: President Barack Obama.

230,000 unemployed workers lost their jobless benefits over the weekend in 27 states as President Barack Obama played golf with VP Joe Biden. Is it any reason why Obama and his reelection minions are playing the politics of distraction with contrived news stories like the false GOP war on woman and Obama, the first gay president?

More than 230,000 unemployed workers will lose their jobless benefits this weekend as portions of federal programs expire across several states.

All told, 409,300 long-term unemployed Americans in 27 states will have lost upward of 20 weeks of federal unemployment benefits by this past Saturday, even as the many state jobless rates remain high, according to a new analysis by the National Employment Law Project (NELP).

The latest batch of cuts affects 236,300 unemployed people in eight states — California (11%), Texas (7%) Pennsylvania (7.5%), Florida (9%), Illinois (8.8%) North Carolina (9.7%) Colorado (7.8%) and Connecticut (7.7%) — half of which have jobless rates above the 8.1 percent national average posted in April.

However, these grim jobs numbers do not stop Obama from his golfing and fund raising. Honestly America, we cannot afford to have Obama reelected in 2012.

Bill Clinton Called Barack an “Amateur” … “Doesn’t know how to be President” and is “Incompetent”

Former President Bill Clinton called Barack Obama an “AMATEUR”. Well, if the shoe fits …

According to a new unauthorized biography of Barack Obama by Edward Klein, entitled “The Amateur,” Bill Clinton was reported to have said to his wife Hillary Clinton that Obama was an “amateur” and that she should quit her job as Secretary of State and run against him in the Democrat Presidential primaries. Also, Bill Clinton is reported to have stated that Obama “does not know how to be President” and is “incompetent”.

Bill Clinton explaining to Obama the A, B, C’s of being President …

Bill Clinton thought so little of President Obama — mocking him as an “amateur” — that he pressed his wife last summer to quit her job as secretary of state and challenge him in the primaries, a new book claims,

“The country needs you!” the former president told Hillary Clinton, urging her to run this year, according to accounts of the conversation included in Edward Klein’s new biography of Obama.

The title of Klein’s explosive, unauthorized bio of Obama, “The Amateur” (Regnery Publishing), was taken directly from Bill Clinton’s bombshell criticism of the president, the author said.

“Barack Obama,” Bill Clinton said, according to book excerpts, “is an amateur.”

Clinton further went on to say that Barack Obama was incompetent. In the end, does any one really disagree with Bill Clinton at this point? There are many Democrats who begged Hillary to run against Obama in the Democrat primaries. Had Hillary Clinton challenged Obama, she would have won. Hell, a felon managed to get 41% of the vote in West VA while being incarcerated.

“The economy’s a mess, it’s dead flat. America has lost its Triple-A rating . . . You know better than Obama does,” Bill said.

Bill Clinton insisted he had “no relationship” with Obama and had been consulted more frequently by his presidential successor, George W. Bush.

Obama, Bill Clinton said, “doesn’t know how to be president” and is “incompetent.”

West Virginia Democrat Primary: Obama 59% – Federal Inmate No. 11593-051 Keith Judd 41%

WOW … It is safe to say that Barack Obama need not campaign in West Virginia after last nights embarrassing Democrat Presidential primary. Now imagine if Hillary Clinton or any credible Democrat had challenged Obama in the Democrat primary … Obama would have lost.

Just how unpopular is Barack Obama in West Virginia? A federal inmate actually received 41% of the vote. YIKES! How’s that for some “Hope & Change”? Just how bad is it for an incumbent President when a felon gets 41% of the primary vote. UNREAL. What you will not see during the campaign season of 2012 is Barack Obama and current Democrat West Virginia US Senator Manchin doing any political events. Not if Manchin wants to retain his Senate seat.

Name: Keith Judd
Age: 53
Address: Beaumont Federal Correctional Institution, Texarkana, Texas
Known as: Inmate Number 11593-051
Education: Member of the Federation of Super Heroes, 1976-1982

Barack Obama, the rock start, the One, the Obamamessiah, the incumbent Democrat President managed to lose 10 counties and 41% of the vote to Federal Inmate No. 11593-051. That is correct sports fans, Barack Obama had a primary challenge in last night’s WVA Democrat primary from Keith Judd, a federal inmate. Laughter does not even begin to express these primary results.

In an embarrassment to President Obama, Federal Inmate No. 11593-051 – otherwise known as Keith Judd – won 10 counties and 41 percent of the vote in West Virginia’s Democratic presidential primary Tuesday.

Mr. Judd is incarcerated at the Federal Correctional Institution in Texarkana, Texas, where he is serving a 210-month sentence for extortion, according to The Charleston Gazette. Judd had paid the $2,500 filing fee and submitted a notarized “certificate of announcement” to appear on the ballot.

He is even qualified to have a delegate at the Democratic National Convention, because he won at least 15 percent of vote. However, no one has stepped forward to fill that role.

Inmate Keith Judd circulated his political standpoints to local media. They included opposing national health care reform on the grounds that it violates the 10th Amendment. Also, Obama’s war on the coal industry did him no favors in WV either.

There is embarrassing and then there is this. Inmate 11593-051 actually received enough percentage of the vote that he gained a delegate. Good grief!!!
