Donald Trump Mocks Jeb Bush for Bringing Brother GWB on Campaign Trail

REALLY DONALD, DON’T YOU BRING YOUR FAMILY ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL? WHATS THE DIFFERENCE?

Hmm, once again GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump applies a double standard as he mocks other while he does the same thing. Donald Trump mocked his GOP rival Jeb Bush for bringing his brother, former President George W. Bush, to help campaign. Why wouldn’t Jeb bring his bother to a red state like South Carolina? Sorry Donald, its just good marketing, you should appreciate that. In fact, if Donald had a former president as a brother he would be doing the exact same thing. Don’t get me wrong, I am not a Jeb Bush supporter, I believe he represents too much of the “mushy middle” of the Republican establishment, however, let’s call it like it is. Trump has his entire family on the campaign trail all the time. Sorry, the longer this race goes on, the bigger idiot and fool Trump is sounding like. Trump, keep it classy, if that is even possible.

Hey look, Trump has his entire family on the Campaign Trail but that’s different

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is mocking rival Jeb Bush for bringing his brother, former President George W. Bush, to help campaign.

“Don’t fall asleep when I mention the name,” Trump said, when he brought up Jeb Bush during a rally in Louisiana on Thursday.

“I see he’s bringing his brother in now. He tried the mother, who’s a very nice lady, I’m sure, but he tried the mother. That didn’t work out so good,” he said. “Now he’s bringing in his brother.”

Former first lady Barbara Bush recently campaigned with her son in New Hampshire ahead of the primary there. Now, his brother will be hitting the campaign trail in South Carolina to help bolster support.

Trump said he’d refrain from saying too much until after the former president makes a statement, adding “there’s plenty to say about what happened.”

“Especially that last three months, and especially getting us in that quicksand. You know, we got in quicksand,” he said.

Trump has in the past called Jeb Bush an embarrassment to his family, which includes two former presidents.

South Carolina Poll: Donald Trump 32%, Ted Cruz 26%, Marco Rubio 20%, Jeb Bush 10%

SOUTH CAROLINA … DO YOU KNOW WHO THE REAL CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICAN IS? HINT, IT DOESN’T RHYME WITH DUMP.

According the the Weekly Standard, there is a new poll out ahead of the South Carolina primaries in SC and is looking like the following. Could it be possible, is Cruz actually withing striking distance of The Donald? However, the RCP average polling has Trump way out ahead. Will the good people of South Carolina actually wake up and take a good look at the past actions and determine who the real Conservative Republican is and who just talks a good game?

Ted Cruz2

Donald Trump 32%,
Ted Cruz 26%,
Marco Rubio 20%,
Jeb Bush 10%

Rush Limbaugh opined on his radio show:

Now, Bill Kristol says: “I’ve just heard from a political operative whom I’ve known a long time and whose integrity I trust. This person is working with an organization — not one of the campaigns — that was in the field (using a very reputable pollster) Wednesday night in South Carolina.”  And that’s what these numbers are.  And Bill Kristol says: “Take it with the usual grains of salt, but I do trust these were the actual results of an honest and competent pollster doing his best to get an accurate read on the situation.”

So it’s unidentified.  We don’t know who the pollster is. We don’t know anything about the poll. We don’t know numbers. We don’t know breakdowns. We don’t have any cross tabs. We have nothing other than these numbers, and here they go.  The Bill Kristol pollster: Trump 32, South Carolina, Ted Cruz 26, Marco Rubio 20, Jeb Bush 10, Ben Carson 7, and John Kasich 2.  Now, the order lines up with the Real Clear Politics average.

But let’s do a numbers comparison.  In the Bill Kristol “we don’t know who it is” poll, Trump’s at 32, Real Clear Politics 36.  Again, this is for South Carolina.  In the Bill Kristol “we don’t know who it is” poll, Ted Cruz 26, Real Clear Politics average 20.  The Bill Kristol “we don’t know who it is” poll, 20 for Rubio. And in the Real Clear Politics poll Rubio gets 12.7%.  And both polls put Jeb Bush at 10.  The Bill Kristol “we don’t know who it is” South Carolina poll and the Real Clear Politics average. So the order lines up, the numbers are fairly close, but there is some significant difference.

 

Donald Trump Declared Winner in GOP New Hampshire Primary, Kasich Second and Battle for Third Between Cruz, Bush and Rubio

DONALD TRUMP HAS BEEN DECLARED THE WINNER OF THE REPUBLICAN NEW HAMPSHIRE PRIMARY …

New Hampshire Primary_GOP2

 Fox News: Trump wins, Kasich takes 2nd in GOP New Hampshire primary.

Donald Trump is the winner in the New Hampshire Republican primary and Ohio Gov. John Kasich will take second place, Fox News projects.

The battle for third, though, remains a fierce contest among three candidates – Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio.

It is too early to project how those three will finish, though Rubio is trailing that group in early returns.

He and Kasich each got 21 percent of the late-deciders, compared to 13 percent each for Bush and Rubio, the exit polls show.

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.

7News/UMass Lowell New Hampshire Tracking Poll Shows Trump Ahead for GOP and Sanders for Democrats

QUESTIONS LEADING INTO NEW HAMPSHIRE PRIMARY … WILL HILLARY FEEL THE “BERN” AND WILL TRUMP REALLY WILL BY SUCH A WIDE MARGIN?

According to the 7 News/UMass Lowell NH tracking poll, Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders have bog leads heading into next Tuesday’s, February 9, 2016 New Hampshire Presidential primary. Self proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders is leading Hillary Clinton by double digits, 55% to 41%. The question becomes, will Sanders actually destroy the establishment presumptive Democrat nominee Hillary be such a wide margin Tuesday night? Will a socialist hand Hillary Clinton her lunch? According to the RCP average polling, the above tracking poll is pretty much in line. It would appear that the 74 year old socialist is poised to win a 14 to 15 percent victory over the Clinton machine in New Hampshire.

NH Tracking Poll_UMASS Lowell

Our tracking poll shows both races settling down. Bernie Sanders is now beating Hillary Clinton 55 percent to 41 percent, his support holding steady. Clinton gained a point overnight, edging slightly closer. The tracking poll shows Clinton is still gaining on Sanders, but the pace of her rise has slowed and Sanders leveled off after three days of big drops.

“There’s a big gender gap in the Democratic race,” said Dr. Joshua Dyck, UMass Lowell pollster. “Sanders leads by more than 30 percent among men, but just 2% among women. A big change from earlier this week.”

As for the Republican party, Trump appears to have a commanding lead at 35% following by a pack of 4 individuals from 14% to 10% that include, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Jeb Bush and John Kasich. However, one has to wonder if Rubio’s poor performance in last nights debate and strong performances by governors Christie and Bush might cause some last minute movement by the electorate? It’s hard to believe that Bush and Kasich have actually gained points but NH has become increasingly liberal these days. The real question heading into the NH Primaries is, will Trump over or under perform his polling, who will come in second and third and will Rubio’s terrible debate performance cost him and stop any momentum he might have had?

Among the Republicans, Donald Trump stays number one, with 35 percent; and picked up a point. Marco Rubio, at 14 percent, lost a point, but keeps second place. Ted Cruz, at 13 percent, also lost a point, but did not lose third place. The biggest GOP changes: John Kasich and Jeb Bush. Both have broken into double digits after both picked up two points overnight.

There were also some changes in the bottom tier. Chris Christie is at four percent, after losing a point since Friday.  Ben Carson, three percent after losing one. And no change for Carly Fiorina, who also gets three percent.

GOP Iowa Caucuses: Cruz, Trump and Rubio in a 3-Person Race (Update: Ted Cruz Declared Winner in Iowa)

IOWA CAUCUS 2016: All night long its been nip and tuck between Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Donald Trump and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio in the GOP Iowa Caucus. Finally, the race has been called by FOX News … Sen. Ted Cruz has been declared the winner in Iowa!!! ABC News is calling the race as well.

Ted Cruz is the winner of the Iowa Republican caucuses, Fox News projects, beating front-runner Donald Trump in a victory that could shake up the primary race.

Trump finishes second, and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio finishes a close third.

Iowa Caucus GOP

There was a record turn out tonight in Iowa and many thought had that occurred, Donald Trump would win the Iowa Caucus going away. Guess what, the pundits were incorrect again.

Iowa Caucus GOP2

Cruz beats Trump in Iowa; Rubio comes in a strong third.

Supporters of Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas delivered a hard-fought upset win over businessman Donald Trump in the Iowa Republican caucuses Monday night, making good on his bet that a methodical campaign organization would eclipse the New Yorker’s media dominance in the first test of GOP voters.

With 99 percent of the precincts reporting, Cruz was besting Trump by more than 5,100 votes, with fellow senator Marco Rubio of Florida a close third. Cruz appeared to capitalize on deep support from religious and social conservatives and showed that old-fashioned retail politicking could overcome Trump’s massive political rallies in the Hawkeye state.

Final Polls Before Today’s Iowa Caucus … Trump Leads Cruz 28% to 23% and Hillary Clinton Leads Sanders 45% to 42%

The final Des Moines Register poll is in ahead of today’s Iowa Caucus, and it shows that Donald Trump has the support of 28% of likely caucus goers, with Texas Sen. Ted Cruz at 23% and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio at 15%. The poll was taken beginning the day after Trump announced he would skip last week’s GOP debate. Who knows whether that decision will come back to haunt him or not. We shall also see where the polls back up caucus goers. On the Democratic side, the survey finds former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton with 45% support to Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ 42%. It is unbelievable that Sanders is so close in the polls to Hillary. Many are looking to gleam and info or data that will give us an indicator as to who might win in Iowa.

February 1, 2016 … Let the Iowa Caucusing begin!!!

ABC NEWS:

In the final poll before the Iowa caucuses Monday, Donald Trump holds a slight 5-point lead over Ted Cruz and Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are neck-and-neck within the margin of error. The Des Moines Register and Bloomberg Politics pool took place January 26-29, three days before Trump skipped the GOP Iowa debate to one day after.

This particular poll, which has a history of accuracy as it predicted Rick Santorum’s late surge in 2012, shows Donald Trump as the frontrunner, but still a close race with two days to go. Trump will need the help of first-time caucus-goers to boost his chances of beating Cruz and in this poll, 40 percent say their caucusing for their first time.

Trump does have weaknesses, though, in the eyes of Iowa voters who don’t like his position on eminent domain and past statements in favor of abortion rights. Cruz’s campaign has been running an ad in Iowa showing Trump in 1999 telling a reporter: “I am very pro-choice.”

FOX NEWS GOP Debate: Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) Says, “If You Guys Ask One more Mean Question, I’m Going to Have to Leave the Stage” … Then Schools Moderator Chris Wallace on What a Debate Actually Is (VIDEO)

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) mocks Donald Trump and schools Chris Wallace during last night’s GOP Debate …

Last night during the Republican debate on FOX News, Sen. Ted Cruz took the opportunity to mock Donald Trump, absent from the event due to a hair pulling fight with Fox News co-moderator Megyn Kelly, by stating after a slew of questions that were presented to other candidates meant to stir the pot and cause a food fight … But I will say this, gosh, if you guys say — ask one more mean question, I’m going to have to leave the stage.” Obviously, Cruz was joking and it was meant to emphasize the fact that Trump was not there because he did not want to deal with tough and mean questions. But I must say with regards to Trump, isn’t it amazing that the guy is not even at the event and he still commands the room.

However, the ironic moment of the night was when Megyn Kelly of all people, the individual who Trump has had so many issues with for being bias, ended up as The Politico reported, kneecapped his rivals on immigration and wound up doing Trump’s dirty work for him.

Yahoo Politics:

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, told the moderators of the Republican presidential debate at Iowa Events Center on Thursday that he might just take his ball and go home.

His threat to leave the stage came after he accused Fox News’ questioners of encouraging his rivals to attack him.

“I would note that the last four questions have been, ‘Rand, please attack Ted. Marco, please attack Ted. Chris, please attack Ted. Jeb, please attack Ted.”

Cruz’s comment provoked loud boos from the audience. His critique of the debate questions came after former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush was asked about how his plans to confront the jihadi group ISIS would differ from those put forth by Cruz and Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla.

Moderator Chris Wallace offered a retort to Cruz.

“It is a debate, sir,” Wallace said.

Cruz wasn’t satisfied with Wallace’s response.

“No, no, a debate actually is a policy issue,” Cruz said. “But I will say this, gosh, if you guys say — ask one more mean question, I’m going to have to leave the stage.”

“The most important determination any voter is going to make in this election is who’s best prepared to be commander in chief, who has the experience, who has the knowledge, who has the judgment, who has the clarity of vision and strength of resolve to keep this country safe,” Cruz said. “That is what this debate is all about, and I would suggest let’s stay focused on those issues rather than just attacks directed at each other.

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) Walks Back His Comments that He was “Pulling” for Trump

REID SAID WHAT? OH WAIT, NO HE DIDN’T, HE’S TAKING HIS LOVE-FEST WITH TRUMP BACK … 

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) says of Donald Trump, “Look, we’ve gotten along fine. With that bunch of people running, I’m kind of pulling for him.”

Hmm, looks like Harry Reid got the collective stink eye and an ear full from Democrats after he made the comment that he was pulling for Donald Trump. Reid no sooner made the comment when he was forced an hour later to hold a presser stating that he was joking. Senate Minority Leader Reid said, “Obviously it wasn’t very funny, Schumer kicked me in the back [of the] leg,” he said. “I’m watching with pleasure the Republicans fumbling around. … I just think it has made a mockery of our Republican Party.”

Makes you really wonder, doesn’t it?

Trump_Reid

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) backpedaled Wednesday after joking that, among the current Republican presidential field, he’s considering backing Donald Trump for the nomination.

“Look, we’ve gotten along fine,” the Democratic leader told reporters. “With that bunch of people running, I’m kind of pulling for him.”

Reid made the remark after the GOP front-runner touted his ability to work with top Democrats in Congress, including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), expected to be the next Senate Democratic leader.

Asked about Trump’s statement, Reid added, “Oh, I remember the good old days when he did a fundraiser or two for me.”

Reid quickly walked back his comments, apologizing for joking about supporting Trump — whom he called a “hateful demagogue who will do immeasurable damage to our country.”

“There’s some things I shouldn’t joke about,” he said from the Senate floor. “The danger of a Donald Trump candidacy to our country is not a joke.”

On MSNBC Donald Trump Touts Friendship With Democrats Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and Chuck Schumer

DONALD TRUMP SAID WHAT!!!

Donald Trump in an MSNBC interview that he gets along with three of the most vile Democrats out there, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and Chucky Schumer. Trump then went on to say that he would work with Democrats. WHAT!!! Dude, if elected you are about to be handed the presidency with a GOP controlled House and Senate, and you are going to be working with Democrats? Sorry, but the only way we are ever going to be able to fix this country is do nothing what Pelosi, Reid and Schumer want. It is their polices and Obama’s that have been driven down our throats without our buy in that have caused the damage.

“I always had a great relationship with Harry Reid. And frankly, if I weren’t running for office I’d be able to deal with her [Pelosi], I’d be able to deal with Reid, I’d be able to deal with anybody.”

The Hill:

People better take a good listen to what this man is saying before the vote. He has only praise for these three shrill Democrats but can say nothing good about his Republican presidential contenders?

“I think I’m going to be able to get along with Pelosi — I’ve always had a good relationship with Nancy Pelosi,” Trump said Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” referring to the House minority leader.

“Reid’s going to be gone. I’ve always had a decent relationship with Reid,” Trump said, referring to Harry Reid (D-Nev.), the Senate minority leader. “I always had a great relationship with Harry Reid.”

Trump said he thought he’d get along with “just about everybody,” including Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), likely to be the next Senate Democratic leader, who Trump said he was “close to … in many in ways.”

The real estate mogul is targeting GOP rival Ted Cruz, against whom Trump is running neck and neck in Iowa a week out from the state’s caucuses. Trump argues that the Texas senator won’t work with others in Congress and that while both candidates have positioned themselves as political outsiders, Trump argues even Republicans don’t want Cruz.

“He is a guy that nobody likes and nobody trusts,” Trump said on MSNBC before reiterating that Cruz “is a nasty guy, he says things that are very nasty, so I have to be nastier than him and it’s just one of those things.”

“I’ve been in politics all my life, I’ve been dealing with politicians all my life,” Trump said of whether he would have any friends in Congress.
