At the Republicans Governors Association Conference, a little preliminary bout for the 2016 GOP Presidential Primary Campaign found Ohio Governor John Kasich showing just how shallow and how ignorant our Governor Scott Walker is. And hopefully the national media won’t be quite as complacent as the Wisconsin media has been during Gov. Walker’s three gubernatorial […]
I’m actually surprised it took Gov. Walker this long to admit he’s going to consider a run for president in 2016. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker said Tuesday he is seriously considering whether to get into the race for president in 2016, but he hasn’t decided yet whether he feels the call to run.
“My personal […]
“Few things are as dangerous to a long term strategy as a short-term victory” writes Chris Ladd of the Houston Chronicle in a fantastic piece outlining that while 2014 may have seemed like a good year for Republicans across the United States, a deeper look shows trouble on the horizon.
Republicans this week scored the […]
This is interesting… Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has been toying with the idea of running for president in 2016 as a Democrat for a few months now. He’s been to Iowa to discuss the idea, and spoke about running in September on Meet the Press.
On Monday, Sanders moved even closer towards officially throwing his […]
According to the Washington Post, U.S. Senator Ron “Sunspots” Johnson is at the top of the list of the most vulnerable U.S. Senators facing reelection in 2016. Sen. Ron Johnson starts the 2016 election cycle as the most vulnerable senator on the map. He’s undefined in the eyes of many, polling shows; and he’s running […]
Leslie Savan of The Nation has a great piece explaining what’s wrong with Hillary Clinton’s likely 2016 presidential campaign in two words.
“I’m baaack!” With those two words, delivered Arnold-style, Hillary Clinton revealed a lot about what’s wrong with her probable candidacy.
“Hello, Iowa!” she beamed from a stage at the Tom Harkin Steak Fry […]
Yes please… Sen. Bernie Sanders (Vt.) is gearing up for a presidential primary challenge against Hillary Clinton and hopes to capitalize on Democratic concerns over Clinton’s coziness with Wall Street banks.
Sanders, an independent who caucuses with Senate Democrats, plans to travel to two crucial presidential battleground states next month.
He will speak at an […]
This is ironic, coming from two men who’ve demonstrated they know nothing about how to win a presidential race. “Looking at her record, seeing how ineffective she was in securing more security, is going to be a great handicap for her in the general election,” said Romney. “I don’t think it’ll hurt her in the […]
This makes me smile, because hilarity will no doubt ensue. With the 2016 mayoral election nearly two long years away, south side alderman Bob Donovan told several hundred cheering friends and supporters Tuesday night that he will challenge Mayor Tom Barrett.
Donovan, a four-term alderman and a frequent critic of the mayor on such hot-button […]
I sure hope Sen. Ron Johnson is this lackadaisical come 2016… “Come November, whatever day it is in 2016, I will guarantee you I will be the calmest on Election Night,” Johnson said. “I win either way. I either get back my life that I miss, or…”
After long pause, Johnson gathered his thoughts and […]
