DONALD TRUMP, THE BOY WHO WHINED WOLF …
There is no doubt that the mood of the country is against establishment government and that is especially the case where Republicans are against the establishment GOP politicians. Thus the rise of outside candidates like Donald Trump and Ted Cruz on the Republican side and Bernie Sanders for the Democrats. However, Trumps latest whine that he was screwed in Colorado and it was unfair is tiresome and old. If Trump wins, everything is golden, if he loses, a travesty has taken place. Now Trump is claiming the process is stacked against him. Really? Truth be known, the GOP set up the primaries and caucuses to benefit the front-runner.
If Trump does not understand the delegate process, who is going to explain the electoral college to him?
Let’s get a couple things correct, Trump lost in Colorado because he failed miserably on following the rules of how tat state’s delegate process works. Donald, the rules are the rules. But I guess the rules don’t apply to Donald Trump. Wow, just what we need, another president like Obama who thinks the rules don’t apply to them. My personal opinion with Trump is that he has no idea what the delegate process is and has no idea that it is different from state to state. I think Trump actually believed that every state has a vote like a general election. Welcome to the Republic that is the United States from its founding. Trump was supposed to know the rules when he decided to run. No one just changed the rules for these state delegate processes just to screw over The Donald. Really Mr. Trump, get over your self. Trump said during a town hall with CNN, “We’re really way up in votes in votes, in terms of the voters. But the Colorado thing was very, very unfair.” And I am sorry to say to all the Trump supporters and mis-guided Conservatives who support Trump, he is beginning to sound like a whining liberal.
Donald Trump said Tuesday night that the political system is “stacked against me,” and accused the Republican Party of conspiring to stop him from clinching the party’s nomination.
At a special CNN town hall in New York City ahead of next Tuesday’s crucial New York primary, Trump said: “I know the rules very well, but I know it’s stacked against me by the establishment.”
His comments elicited a tough response from Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus, who tweeted: “Nomination process known for a year + beyond. It’s the responsibility of the campaigns to understand it. Complaints now? Give us all a break.”
The feud between Trump and rival Ted Cruz engulfed the RNC Tuesday night, after the GOP presidential front-runner at CNN’s town hall blasted “unfair” results in Colorado. He was swept there in the delegate hunt by Cruz at a party convention this weekend. A similar outcome emerged from Louisiana, where he won the primary but Cruz is seeking to sway delegates.
What I find interesting is Donald Trump, the Art of the Deal, proclaims to be such a shrewd business man and able to close big deals was ill-prepared for Colorado and its delegate process. When he got his hat handed to him by Cruz in a big way, Trump did not take it like a man, he whined, blamed others and called the system unfair. I really have to wonder whether this guy has the make up to be president.
Cooper pointed out that Cruz had invested a lot of time and effort in Colorado “going out, reaching out to people who wanted to be delegates, to run the process.”
“I mean, it was a whole electoral process to get delegates,” Cooper said.
But Trump wouldn’t budge, repeating his argument that the rules were simply stacked against him. He further said he would have won Colorado had the rules not been changed last year to the current system.
“You disagree with the process as it was in Colorado,” Cooper said. “But you had months to prepare.”
The CNN anchor continued:
Your critics say it says something about your leadership ability — for somebody who touts himself as somebody who’s an organizational genius, who’s created this amazing business organization, that you couldn’t create an organization on the ground that could beat Ted Cruz’s organization.
Trump again responded by touting his overall status at the Republican frontrunner.
“Well, if my organization’s not so good, how come I’ve won many more states than him?” he said.
Trump whining About Losing in Colorado … Blames Everyone But Himself … Educate Yourself as to Why Trump Lost
WAKE UP AMERICA … DONALD TRUMP NOW WHINING ABOUT LOSING COLORADO … HE’S STARTING TO SOUND LIKE A LIBERAL DEMOCRAT.
Sorry, but I am getting really tired of Donald Trump’s act. He is beginning to make it almost impossible to like him, even if he wins. Trump is the epitome of a sore loser. When he wins everything is great, the people are great and he loves all the people of the state that some how voted for him and did not see through his act. However, when he loses … the process is unfair, its rigged and he was screwed out of votes. REALLY?
Such was the case in Colorado where Trump lost to Cruz in a major way. Trump lost his mind because he lost and has no one to blame but himself. If you don’t know the rules of a primary, don’t bother to care to know them and don’t even have a presence in a state, what the hell do you expect to happen? With all the whining that Trump has done when he loses about things not being fair, he is beginning to sound like a liberal. Of course Trump had no issue where he gained less than 50% of the vote in South Carolina or Florida and won all the delegates. So when the rules benefit Trump is a happy camper and when they do not, he’s a whiner. Wake up folks.
Take a good listen to an interview with Conservative radio host Mark Levin and US Congressman Ken Buck from Colorado.
Buck, who knows the system inside and out, explained to Levin why voters were not disenfranchised as Trump is suggesting and why there is no fury about the process.
Buck explained that the caucus process for Colorado has been for a long time that voters would make a non-binding straw vote. Delegates were not bound by the vote to any candidate.
However four years ago a national rule changed by the RNC that would have bound the delegates to a candidate by the vote. So the central committee in Colorado met last fall and decided to abandon the straw vote because they didn’t want delegates bound at that stage.
Buck said the last time they had a straw poll in Colorado, Rick Santorum won, but by the time they got to the convention he was no longer in the race. So if they had done what the RNC wanted, they were worried the delegates would be bound to a candidate no longer in the race.
One point that Buck made was that 40% of the delegates at the state assembly and at each of the congressional district assemblies were new voters. They had never been through this process before but they figured it out. He said they showed up at their caucus, felt strongly about Ted Cruz, got elected to the county assembly, then the state assembly and then cast their votes for the candidate. Meaning, this is not an exclusive process, but a very inclusive process.
Buck said up until a week before the state assembly, Trump had no presence in the state. And Trump chose not to speak at the convention, even though he was encouraged to do so
CRUZ CRUISES IN COLORADO WITH SLEEP SWEEP OF DELEGATES …
Ted Cruz completed the clean sweep of delegates Saturday night in the Republican Colorado convention. As reported at the Denver Post, the Texas senator won all 34 delegates awarded in Colorado in what amounts to a stunning rebuke of Republican front-runner Donald Trump.What might be most interesting is that Sen. Cruz completed the sweep by winning all 13 delegates at the state convention in Colorado Springs, the largest in history with nearly 8,000 in the crowd. Record number of people and they were not there for Donald Trump. Even though Trump is likely to win the New York primary, he is from NY so one would expect The Donald to win, Cruz’s landslide victory in Colorado, combined with recent wins Wisconsin and Utah have amounted to a recent trend in his favor and against Trump.
Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz has swept the Colorado GOP convention, winning all 13 of the state’s at-large delegates.
And after also winning all 21 delegates awarded at the congressional district conventions throughout the week, the Texas senator leaves Colorado with a complete shutout of his opponents.
In a statement Saturday night, Cruz said the win proves that Republicans are coming together behind him.
“Today was another resounding victory for conservatives, Republicans, and Americans who care about the future of our country,” Cruz said in the statement. “Utah, North Dakota, Wisconsin, and tonight’s incredible results in Colorado have proven this: Republicans are uniting behind our campaign because they want a leader with real solutions who will bring back jobs, freedom, and security.”
The victory offers a glimpse into the Cruz campaign’s organizational advantages over GOP front-runner Donald Trump, who has struggled, facing staff tumult and reports of inadequate delegate preparation that kept some picks off the ballot.
Quinnipiac University Poll: Hillary Clinton Trails Top Republicans (Bush, Rubio & Walker) in Battleground States of Iowa, Colorado & Virginia
WOW, DOES HILLARY CLINTON HAVE A REAL ISSUE IN A GENERAL ELECTION AGAINST THE GOP?
As reported at CNN, a recent Quinnipiac University poll of swing state shows the Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton is trailing former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker in each of the states of Colorado, Iowa and Virginia. This is an amazing turn of events from the all but crowned Democrat 2016 presidential nominee. Hillary is doing terribly in these polls as to being honest and trust worthy. At least some people in America are finally paying attention as Hillary Clinton might be one of the most insincere, most un-trustworthy presidential candidates ever. Between her lack of answers and stonewalling on Benghazi as Secretary of State, her less than transparent private email account and private server she used to conduct business as Secretary of State and then destroying said emails and her over-all unwillingness to make herself available to the media and the people as a presidential candidate. Could the gig finally be up for Hillary? It’s not like one would think her poll numbers could get better? She has 100% name recognition, but her lack of honesty may just be her undoing. But as Hillary would say of her lack of transparency and honest, “what difference does it make”. Hopefully it will make a huge difference with the voters.
Hillary Clinton trails three top Republican presidential candidates in head-to-head matchups in Colorado, Iowa and Virginia, a new survey shows.
The latest Quinnipiac University swing state polling released Wednesday shows the Democratic frontrunner trailing former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker in each of those states.
The biggest loser, the polls found, is Donald Trump, who has surged to the front of a crowded Republican primary field nationally but is viewed unfavorably, by almost a 2-to-1 margin, by voters in those states.
The results offered more indications that Clinton has a problem: Voters say they don’t trust her.
In Colorado, only 34% of voters said they see Clinton as honest and trustworthy while 62% said they don’t. In Iowa, the numbers were 33% to 59% — a drop from 45% to 47% in April. And in Virginia, Clinton did best, at 39% saying they trust her to 55% saying they don’t.
In Colorado, Clinton trails Rubio 38%-46%, Bush 36%-41% and Walker 38%-47%. In Iowa, she trails Rubio 36%-44%, Bush 36%-42% and Walker 37%-45%. And in Virginia, Clinton has the narrowest margins between her and her Republican opponents, where she lags behind Rubio 41%-43%, Bush 39%-42% and Walker 40%-43%.
If the people of the United States ever want to have a prayer of trying to save their country and get it back on course they will never vote for Hillary.
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.
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.
Republicans need a net pickup of 6 Senate seats in the 2014 midterm elections in order to wrestle control away from Harry Reid and Democrats.
The GOP need a net pickup of 6 Senate seats in order to gain control of the US Senate. A recent NBC/Marist poll shows that although Democrat incumbent Sen. Mark Udall is still leading in Colorado, Republicans are surging in the key “red” state races in Kentucky and Arkansas. US Rep. Tom Cotton (R-AR) leads incumbent Democratic Sen. Mark Pryor by five points among likely voters, 45% to 40%. Although Kentucky is not a pickup for the GOP, some Democrats have thought that it could be a possible loss for the GOP. However, that does not appear to be the case. In reality, the GOP already is at a +3 as Republicans will pick up seats in the open Senate races formerly held by Democrats in Montana, West Virginia and South Dakota.
Other Senate seats currently held by Democrats that are now in play include Alaska, Louisiana, North Carolina, Iowa, New Hampshire and Michigan. My person opinion is that the GOP with have a net pick up of 7, possibly 8 Senate seats. If all things go right, it could be 9, but my gut feeling says this will not be a wave election like in 2010 because too many establishment Republicans are running and the establishment appears to have no clue that their conservative base is what wins elections. Not being Democrat light.
US Rep. Cotton (R-AR) calls Democrat Sen. Pryor a good Obama foot soldier, who was the deciding vote for Obamacare and who has voted with Obama 93% of the time.
Republican Senate candidates have opened up leads in the key states of Arkansas and Kentucky, putting them in a strong position to win back the U.S. Senate, according to new NBC News/Marist polls.
But another NBC/Marist poll shows Democrats holding on in the blue state of Colorado, suggesting a limit to the gains that Republicans could make in November.
In Arkansas, Rep. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., leads incumbent Democratic Sen. Mark Pryor by five points among likely voters, 45 percent to 40 percent, with two minor candidates getting a combined 5 percent.
In Kentucky, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., is ahead of Democratic challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes by eight points among likely voters, 47 percent to 39 percent, with Libertarian David Patterson getting another 8 percent.
And in Colorado, incumbent Sen. Mark Udall, D-Colo., is up by six points over Rep. Cory Gardner, 48 percent to 42 percent.

Daily Commentary – Tuesday, April 1, 2014 Download
Just remember Colorado, not one Republican in the House or Senate voted for Obamacare …
More bad news for Americans courtesy of President Barack “you can keep your plan” Obama, Nancy “we have to pass the bill to find out what is in it” Pelosi and Dingy Harry. Fox 31 – Denver is reporting that the Colorado Department of Insurance is saying that nearly 250,000 Coloradans insurance policies will be canceled as a result of Obamacare. Colorado, you were a battle ground state in the 2012 presidential election and it was you who voted for Obama in 2012 and you really have no one to blame but yourself. You had been warned what would happen when Obamacare was implemented and you still bought the lie.
There are nearly 250,000 Coloradans whose health care policies have been or will be cancelled as a result of the Affordable Care Act, the state’s Dept. of Insurance announced on Wednesday.
Many of the policies are being cancelled because of stipulations under the new law that force insurers to cover certain things that weren’t covered under the old policies; other plans are being cancelled by insurers because they’re no longer cost-effective.
The cancellation letters sent out by the insurers must notify a consumer that the 2013 policy is cancelled, and must also highlight options for new coverage.
“Consumers who have questions about these letters or any questions about their health insurance policy should contact the Division,” said Commissioner of Insurance Marguerite Salazar. “While some plans are being cancelled, Coloradoans have many new options for 2014, due to the strength and competitiveness of our health insurance market.”
George Will Predicts Romney Landslide 321-217 on ABC’s ‘This Week” … Similar to Barone’s Landslide Prediction
Most pundits are calling the 2012 Presidential race too close to call as the RCP averages of polls have it a dead tie.
However, that did not stop conservative columnist on ABC’s “This Week’ to predict a Mitt Romney electoral landslide. Will predicted a 321-217 electoral victory for Romney. What I do find interesting is that a couple of people have gone out on a limb and said that Romney will get over 300 electoral votes; however, no one is really saying that Obama will do such. What we are seeing from Will and Barone is that if the undecided’s break for the challenger Mitt Romney, battleground states could fall like dominoes for Romney.
On this weekend’s broadcast of “This Week with George Stephanopoulos” on ABC, Will revealed his prediction and added a bonus surprise by saying traditional Democratic state Minnesota would go for Romney as well.
“I’m projecting Minnesota to go for Romney,” Will said. “It’s the only state that’s voted democratic in nine consecutive elections, but this year, there’s marriage amendment on the ballot that will bring out the evangelicals and I think could make the difference.”
Add Will’s landslide prediction to that of numbers cruncher extraordinaire Michael Barone. His prediction of a landslide is based
on fundamentals, a majority of Americans are against Obama’s policies. and a sluggish economy where job growth and recovery has been far too slow. Barone is predicting a Romney 315, Obama 223 landslide. Barone stated that it sounds high for Romney, but he could lose Pennsylvania and Wisconsin and still win the election.
Which candidate will get the electoral votes of the target states? I’ll go out on a limb and predict them, in ascending order of 2008 Obama percentages — fully aware that I’m likely to get some wrong.
Indiana (11 ). Uncontested. Romney.
North Carolina (15). Obama has abandoned this target. Romney.
Florida (29). The biggest target state has trended Romney since the Denver debate. I don’t see any segment of the electorate favoring Obama more than in 2008, and I see some (South Florida Jews) favoring him less. Romney.
Ohio (18). The anti-Romney auto bailout ads have Obama running well enough among blue-collar voters for him to lead most polls. But many polls anticipate a more Democratic electorate than in 2008. Early voting tells another story, and so does the registration decline in Cleveland’s Cuyahoga County. In 2004, intensity among rural, small -town and evangelical voters, undetected by political reporters who don’t mix in such circles, produced a narrow Bush victory. I see that happening again. Romney.
