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.
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.”

GEORGIA SENATE ELECTION 2014: David Perdue (R) – Michelle Nunn (D) … (Big Hold for GOP, Perdue Wins Going Away by over 50%)
ANOTHER HUGE HOLD OF SERVE FOR THE GOP IN GEORGIA AND OVER THE 50% THRESHOLD …
In a race that was thought to be close and a possible, maybe wishful pick up for Democrats, Republican David Perdue defeated Democrat Michelle Nunn in Georgia’s Senate race handily and over the 50% threshold, avoiding a runoff election. All the Democrats race-baiting failed to pull Nunn over the finish line. That is remarkable is that with 78% of the vote counted, the race is not even close. What is amazing is that Perdue never really polled above 50% prior to the election, but won big on election day.
Republican David Perdue defeated Democrat Michelle Nunn in Georgia’s Senate race Tuesday, winning enough votes to avoid a run-off after the holidays.
President Obama himself had appealed to black voters in Georgia, asking them to elect Nunn in order to prevent Republicans from winning control of the Senate.
Had neither candidate received 50 percent of the vote, a run off would have been held Jan. 6.
The race between Perdue, a businessman who was CEO of Dollar General, and Nunn, the CEO of the Points of Light nonprofit, has been heated in recent weeks.
COLORADO SENATE ELECTION 2014 – Cory Gardner (R) – Incumbent Mark Udall (D) … (Update: Race Called for Republican Cory Gardner, +4)
+4 FOR THE GOP FOR CONTROL OF THE US SENATE …
FOX News has called the Senate race in Colorado for Republican Cory Gardner!!! WOW, the incumbent Senator Mark Udall has lost to his GOP challenger Gardner, making it a now net gain of 4 seats for the Republicans.Fox
News projects that Republican Rep. Cory Gardner will oust first-term Democratic Sen. Mark Udall in Colorado, one of the most closely watched contests in this election cycle.
This is a significant victory for Republicans, as it turns another Senate seat from blue to red, bringing their net gain for the night to four pickups.
FOX NEWS IS REPORTING THAT THE VIRGINIA SENATE ELECTION IS TOO CLOSE TO CALL.
WOW … Going into tonight election, Democrat incumbent Mark Warner had a 10 point lead in the polls over Republican challenger Ed Gillespie. And a couple of weeks ago Warner was up by 20. Now on election night the race is too close to call. If this is a sign of things to come for Democrats, Obama and his minions are going to have a long, long nihgt. No one had Virginia even remotely in play.
Democrat Michelle Nunn Fading in Georgia Senate Race, So Is the Democrat Chances of Control of US Senate … David Perdue Takes Poll Lead
GEORGIA, WAKE THE HELL UP, THIS IS NOT YOUR FATHER’S DEMOCRAT PARTY AND MICHELLE NUNN IS HARDLY HER FATHER SAM NUNN …
There was a point in time in the George Senate race for the retiring Republican Saxby Chambliss, that Democrat challenger Michelle Nunn had a chance of pulling off the upset and shift what has been a red state to a blue Senate seat. How much of that though was because of a liberal media pushing Michelle Nunn as the daughter of former Georgia Senator Sam Nun? Georgia, do you really want to be the state that continues to empower Harry Reid and President Barack Obama? Sorry, but Michelle is not Sam Nunn.
However, the early favorably polling for Michelle Nunn seems to be subsiding as Republican David Perdue has taken the lead in the polls. According to the most recent RCP polls, Perdue is up by 2.2%.
Just remember Georgia, a vote for Michelle Nunn, is a vote for Democrat Senate Majority Leader and President Barack Obama.
For a brief time in mid-October, some Democrats believed Michelle Nunn, the party’s Senate candidate in Georgia, could be the firewall that prevents a Republican takeover of the Senate. If Nunn could win the seat opened by retiring GOP Sen. Saxby Chambliss, then Republicans would need to pick up seven, not six, seats to take control.
In half-a-dozen polls taken over a two-week period in the middle of October, Nunn led Republican opponent David Perdue in five, while the candidates tied in one. Democratic optimism surged. “National Democrats have just decided to pour $1 million into this race in Georgia, a sign of how important a victory here would be to their effort to beat the odds and hold on to control of the Senate,” the Wall Street Journal reported Oct. 17. More pro-Nunn money came after that, with a barrage of ads focusing mostly on accusations the businessman Perdue outsourced thousands of Georgia jobs.
Now, things have changed. Perdue has recovered from the attacks — he indisputably helped create thousands of jobs in his career — and in the last six polls, taken since Oct. 16, Perdue has led in five, while one was a tie. In the RealClearPolitics average of polls, Perdue is up by 2.2 percentage points. In the newest poll, a NBC News-Marist survey released Sunday, Perdue leads by four points, 48 percent to 44 percent.
Republicans Take a Big Lead in Colorado Early Voting … Will Cory Gardner (R) Defeat Incumbent Sen. Udall
COLORADO ROCKY MOUNTAIN HIGH FOR THE GOP IN EARLY VOTING …
More good news for the GOP in Colorado as early reports have 104,000 more Republicans than Democrats had cast their ballots as the state conducts its first major mail-in election. I guess Democrat voter are too busy getting stoned. Republican Cory Gardner is leading incumbent Democrat Senator Mark Udall in the RCP polling by 3.8%. Also amazingly, Republican challenger Bob Beauprez is tied with incumbent Democrat Gov. John Hickenlooper.
Republicans are taking a big lead in early voting in Colorado.
A report from the Secretary of State on Friday showed that 104,000 more Republicans than Democrats had cast their ballots as the state conducts its first major mail-in election.
Voters can also drop off ballots at polling stations and register through Election Day.
Republicans usually lead in early returns in Colorado but rarely by such hefty margins. Democrats and some observers expect that lead to shrink by Election Day.
