CRUZ NAMES FIORINO VP TO JUMP START HIS CAMPAIGN …
Yesterday Ted Cruz named Carly Fiorina to be his VP running mate in an effort to jump start his GOP primary presidential campaign. Cruz praising Fiorino, a former Republican presidential nominee, as a fierce competitor “not intimidated by bullies” who has “shattered glass ceilings” in both business and politics. One might think this was a strange move by Cruz to announce a VP candidate so soon, but hasn’t this entire primary season been nothing shore of different and bizarre? In the grand scope of the primary races on both the Republican and Democrat sides, this actually seems quite normal. But the real question remains, will this unorthodox move change the momentum in the GOP primary race from Trump to Cruz and the primary vote next Tuesday in Indiana?
Ted Cruz announced Wednesday that Carly Fiorina will be his vice presidential nominee if he’s the Republican Party’s pick for president.
If nominated, “I will run on a ticket with my vice-presidential nominee, Carly Fiorina,” the Texas senator said at an Indiana rally before the crowd began chanting “Carly.”
The two appeared together in an hour-long event in Indianapolis, with Cruz alternating between lauding Fiorina and maintaining that he has a path forward in the race despite suffering a series of losses over the last two weeks. Fiorina, who followed Cruz, shared stories about her own background and about Cruz, and even sang to his two young daughters from the stage, as she also railed against Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
She delivered a wide-ranging speech on Wednesday that highlighted Cruz’s embrace of conservative principles and of the Constitution, but she also aimed to highlight a softer side of Cruz, describing time spent on the campaign bus with him and noting how much his daughters “adore their dad.” She sang several bars of a song to his daughters.
“I know two girls that I just adore,” Fiorina sang. “I’m so happy I can see them more. ‘Cause we travel on the bus all day…we get to play.”
Chris Christie & Carly Fiorina Quit 2016 Presidential Race After Poor Showing in New Hampshire Primary
AND THEN THERE WERE SIX FOR THE GOP …
Chris Christie and Carly Fiorina have dropped out of the Republican presidential race after a very poor showing in the New Hampshire primaries. Fiorina finished 7th with 4% of the vote and Christie finished 6th with about 7.5% of the vote. Carly Fiorina had a short and meteoric rise as she performed strong at times during the debates, but it just never translated to a rise in the polls. With regards to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, to be honest, his run for the GOP presidential nomination was over before it began. Pundits pondered why Christie’s campaign never got traction and why even after he knee-capped establishment darling Marco Rubio showing him to be robitoc, Christie gained nada in the polls. Really, is it that hard to understand? With all due respect to Christie, his presidential run ended when he decided to hug Barack Obama during the president’s photo-op trip to New Jersey after Hurricane Sandy and what looked like a date between Obama and Christie on the boardwalk at the Jersey shore. Sorry Chris, you were toast after that and no Republican was ever going to for get that image. We had said back in 2013 for Christie to not waste his time. I guess he should have listened.
Really Gov. Christie, did you ever thing the GOP base would ever forget these images?
Chris Christie dropped out of the race for president on Wednesday afternoon, two hours after a rival candidate quit.
Carly Fiorina, one of only two women in the U.S. presidential race, left her quixotic pursuit of the White House on Wednesday after a seventh-place New Hampshire primary finish in a field of eight candidates.
And Christie, the governor of New Jersey, soon followed suit after rumors of his campaign’s demise swirled all day.
Spokeswoman Samantha Smith confirmed the news to the Associated Press, saying that Christie broke the news of his decision to staff at his campaign headquarters in Morristown, New Jersey, late in the afternoon.
Christie is also calling donors and supporters to thank them for staying the course as his poll numbers gasped for air.
Before leaving the race Carly Fiorina blasted Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton and her minions for their reprehensible comments regarding feminism and threats of going to hell to women who dared not support Clinton.
Fiorina took one last shot at Democratic contender Hillary Clinton, kicking her while she was down after a stunning defeat in New Hampshire.
‘To young girls and women across the country, I say: do not let others define you,’ Fiorina wrote. ‘Do not listen to anyone who says you have to vote a certain way or for a certain candidate because you’re a woman. That is not feminism.’

Donald Trump Reacts to Barack Obama’s Prime Time Speech on Terrorism and Defeating ISIS … “We Need a New President Fast”
“We Need a New President Fast” …
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump was live tweeting Barack Obama’s prime time speech to America last night on terrorism and how we are going to defeat ISIS. It would appear that Trump was just tweeting what many Americans were thinking after watching the failed and tired same old, same old speech.
GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump said late Sunday that a new leader is needed to defeat the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
“Is that all there is?” Trump asked after President Obama addressed the nation from the Oval Office on Sunday night. “We need a new president – fast!”
“Well, Obama refused to say (he just can’t say it) that we are at war with radical Islamic terrorists,” Trump continued.
“Wish Obama would say ISIS, like almost everyone else, rather than ISIL,” he added, citing Obama’s use of the administration’s preferred acronym for the terrorist group.
And there was more …
UPDATE I: GOP Candidates Bash Obama Speech.
- Carly Fiorina also posted on Twitter after Obama’s speech: “Vintage Obama: No strategy, no leadership. Politics as usual.” She also included a video discussing her plan to defeat ISIS.
- Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) joined Fox News following Obama’s address and told host Bret Baier, “This is a president that called [ISIS] the JV when they first emerged.”
He said Obama “called the attacks in Paris a ‘setback,’” adding that after the Paris attack, Obama only showed emotion toward attacking the GOP candidates pushing to stop the Syrian refugee resettlement program.
“We continue to conduct very limited air assaults,” Rubio added, saying ISIS won’t be defeated only with air assaults.
Rubio also said gun control wouldn’t have prevented the attack in San Bernardino, California
- Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) released a statement prior to Obama’s address this evening.
The reality is that what President Obama, Secretary Kerry and Hillary Clinton have done has not worked. Their policies have in fact made the world more dangerous. It is time for a dramatic shift in both foreign and national security policy. Tonight when President Obama addresses the nation, I hope that he will acknowledge and take responsibility for the failed policies of his administration and will take concrete steps to reverse the damage done.
