Krauthammer predicts final three GOP contenders
For the time being, a best-selling author and commentator says one of three men is likely to win the 2016 Republican presidential nomination.
Real Clear Politics has been the go-to source for political pundits, with its compilation of various presidential preference polls. On the GOP side, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush maintains just over a two point lead on Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker and Florida Senator Marco Rubio with almost 15 and a half percent. Walker and Rubio are tied with just over 13 percent. No other candidates are in double figures.
Charles Krauthammer has recently released the paperback edition of his best-selling book, Things That Matter: Three Decades of Passions, Pastimes, and Politics. Though it is early, he believes one of those three will ultimately get the nomination.
“Jeb is, of course, the so-called establishment candidate, the legacy candidate. He’s a serious guy, a serious governor, very successful and rather conservative, despite the fact that many people think that he’s not,” Krauthammer explains. “But nonetheless, he doesn’t quite have the fire and the kind of newness that you see in a Rubio or the kind of recent experience you get from Scott Walker taking on the unions and liberals in Wisconsin.”
And Krauthammer believes the game will ultimately be decided in the field.
“The debates are going to be decisive. The speeches — anybody making [gaffes], interactions — all those things that we can’t predict because they haven’t yet happened are going to be the ones that determine who gets ahead,” the writer foresees.
Krauthammer believes Rubio and Walker have a better shot than Bush at defeating Hillary Clinton.
In this landmark video, US Senator Marco Rubio strongly opposes President Obama’s disgraceful treatment of Prime Minister Netanyahu and calls for unconditional support of Israel.
Rubio began his speech by showing how President Obama has been among the first to call controversial leaders such as Iran’s Rouhani, Turkey’s Erdogan and PA President Abbas to congratulate them on winning their elections.
Yet, when it came to congratulating America’s greatest ally by far in the Middle East, the phone call was very late in coming.
Senator Rubio showed how throughout the Obama Administration, the United States did not stand with Israel as it should have.
Rubio asked “If America does not stand with Israel, who would we stand with?”
Ann Coulter uncorked: ‘Are you people awake?’
Lightning rod unleashes on what’s wrong with right
WASHINGTON — The left loves to hate political dynamo Ann Coulter, and many on the right have found themselves upset with her, too.
The criticism from conservatives began in 2010 when Coulter addressed an event titled “HOMOCON” sponsored by the homosexual Republican group GOProud that promotes same-sex marriage and military service for open homosexuals. A year later, she joined the advisory board of GOProud.
Then came her call for Gov. Chris Christie, R-N.J., to run for president in 2012.
And anger from the right flared yet again over her support of Republican presidential nominee, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.
Some conservatives found both of those Republicans too liberal. Coulter retracted her support for Christie but has steadfastly defended Romney.
A year ago, Coulter said, “My flirtation with Christie was like running off with a biker. He was new and exciting — and made conservatives feel alive. But I came back to the responsible choice. Romney is the absolute best man to run against a dirty street fighter like Obama.” Continue reading “ANN COULTER: NEMESIS TO THE LIBTARDS”
