Anyone else surprised that the 50th Super Bowl was so low key?
The Super Bowl is always a big deal, but I figured it would have been something really special this year. The 50th anniversary doesn’t come along every day. I mean Cold Play was the headliner group for half-time. No offense, but they weren’t worthy.
(I did enjoy the game though.)

I don’t want a “principled” conservative, or a “compassionate” conservative, or an “establishment” conservative. or a “Nancy Pelosi is my friend” conservative, or a “Give Obama a hug” conservative. I want a “conservative” conservative. It looks like this describes Cruz.
Ok...I think you understand what you want. Cruz is your man.

Uhh… yeah Hillary… Bernie is the only person who thinks that you flat out personify the very definition of the establishment candidate. Sheesh.

She could have ripped off her tampon earrings and threw them at the man to scare him off. If that didn’t work, she could have soiled and puked on herself. I hear these are popular forms of liberal self-defense.

Don’t you just hate it when “journalist” report on a story like this and leave out an important fact? Like… what is this guy’s party affiliation?
I went and looked it up. It turns out Buchanan is one of three Republicans on the five-member commission. Not great news when one of ours acts like a moron, but I still think it is stupid not to report this piece of information.
Having lived in a corporate monopoly environment I can say members of both parties in my circle of friends were wasteful at taxpayer expense. I found neither party distinguishable from the others on this issue.
Just for curiosity's sake who is ours in "one of ours"?

It's the one you donate the most money to.
We are no longer Republicans, they left us long ago.
Good! I'm a conservative and I'm ecstatic that a republican gets called out and resigns. I have no problem with getting rid of these pompous jerks. Although I will say that when I see this happen with liberals, they circle the wagons to protect their own. It needs to stop on both sides of the aisle!
greed and power makes little difference in local unless one party been exclusive for decades like phila detroit la etc

1/2 * 1/2 * 1/2 * 1/2 * 1/2 * 1/2 = 1/64 (not that difficult of a formula)

“Clinton only led Sanders by 0.3 points, 49.8 percent to Sanders’ 49.6 percent.” — TheBlaze
It's called rounding. If it was 49.84 against 49.56 that is a total different of .28 points.
If you eliminate 1 significant figure to round everything to the nearest tenth then you get 49.8 against 49.6 but a difference of .3
Good catch though.
But carving that's the point. If there was rounding as you describe, it is idiotic reporting. Should have used the extra decimal places or 'fudged' the one they did so that we don't question it.
It's kind of like telling people I'm 53 and my brother is 52, but we're two years apart. Well, we're actually 22 months apart, so I can just round it, right?

Now if all the other 1% and 2% candidates would just follow his lead.

I was wondering the same thing. Uhh… labels have meaning. It’s why we use them.
 February 1, 2016 at 8:57pm
Mark Cuban, you’re an idiot — how you like that label?
First of all we should be adults and not using words and conditions as children do, and that includes you Daithi and others. As adults we must think, investigate, equate, etc. and then make a statement or selection that shows real thought and research has gone into your position. Otherwise, we will see Bernie or Hillary and that scares the heck out of me.

I have no doubt that Bing’s prediction will be true — seeing that the results of the Iowa caucus is being tabulated with Microsoft software.

On Friday Rush Limbaugh said, “He would believe it when he saw it.”
I agree. Hillary was supposed to be toast with the Rose Law Firm records, Whitewater, Cattle Futures, Benghazi, etc. I’ll believe it when I see it.
Yup, and I figure Hillary will never be prosecuted.
This is what happens when you know too much. Cankles is above the law because of all the people in power she can bring down with her if prosecuted for her crimes. People have willingly gone to jail to protect Cankles. That says a lot.

How about Megyn questioning Cruz after the debate? She came right out and said that she went back and looked at Cruz’s position at the time, and he is right when he says that he’s always been against both a path to citizenship and general legalization. So why did her question and video montage paint him as being in favor of legalization when she KNEW he actually wasn’t?
During the after debate interview she states that she didn’t like the theater of Cruz saying one thing when he really held a different position. Maybe Megyn Kelly should ask herself this same question.
BTW, I actually like Megyn Kelly, but I think she blew it here. This was far more unfair than asking Trump in the first debate about sexist comments he has made. (On the hand, Cruz should have had a better answer. It’s not the first time he’s been asked this question.)
I definitely noticed that too. It might fly with evangelicals in Iowa, but as someone who isn’t religious, I find it off putting.
I really don’t care if someone is religious, but I’m not a fan of those who wear wear their religion on their sleeve.

I started out leaning towards Rubio during the first debate a few months ago. However, I too am seeing him as kind of whiny as well. Plus, he tends to speak in platitudes pretty much non-stop. Tonight he also spent a good deal of time pandering to the evangelical vote. I’ve also never really gotten over his role in the Gang of 8. I still think Jeb, Kasick, Carson, and Christy are worse than Rubio. I like Paul’s Libertarian principles, but something about Paul as an individual rubs me the wrong way.
The best exchange was between Rubio and Bush. Bush was defending Rubio and Rubio is looking at Bush like STFU! LOL
At least, according to this poll, Christie didn't receive a bump, and very few trust Marco. If only the absent vote would finally realize their candidate has flip-flopped more than Rubio tenfold.
Even TheBlaze has Trump polling at 60% in here.......Seriously though, google the schedule of the GOP caucus, then check the polls in those States. Trump is winning by HUGE in all States.
If Trump wins Iowa it's over, Trump will be the GOP nominee.
Great comment! I agree with most of your analogy. I've spent weeks of research - politics IS very dirty. I came to a conclusion different than yours, which I will explain later. I wanted to try something new. I was able to get the profiles of 11 Republican candidates before the debate. I put all the data into a spreadsheet, assigning values to Good, Mixed and Bad. I expanded all into scores much like the scores we give Congress. I threw out the three lowest (which each were minus) I threw out the three highest (bias, politics and establishment), I ended up with five left. Trump came out on top, beat everybody by 30 points! Sort of a "Best for America Formula" without heavy politics.
I can refer you from my research to search: laura stephens open letter to mark Levin
It is straight forward, well documented and honest. Hope I helped!
I found the Cruz campaign bus.
Daithi, I pretty much see it the same way. I'm set on voting for Cruz. I really don't trust any of them, except, maybe, Carson, but I don't believe Carson has a chance and seems too nice of a guy to get things done in Washington. The rest remind me of used car salesmen, all willing to lie in order to sell a car. The only difference is, I believe Cruz is mostly selling decent cars at a fair price, only once in awhile he has a clunker.
I agree, but he would still be an ok pick. Here is the order I would see them in
Not acceptable at all

I think Kennedy’s announcement may have propelled him to the top.
 January 28, 2016 at 4:20pm
I think it is hilarious. That’s just how dirty grandpa roles. hahaha
When I was in the Army, there was a civilian manager that reminds me of this guy. He would only hire attractive women for his office, becasue he was sexist pig. The Army would just see the percent of women he was hiring and give him equal opportunity awards.

Uh… I was referring to Obama being clueless. I wasn’t agreeing with him.
Talk about projection. I don't know who's more "clueless". The Dear Leader for uttering this weapons grade stupidity, or YOU for buying it.

O’Reilly is such a tool. He begs Trump to go to the debate right after treating Cruz rudely the night before. If O’Reilly had any sense of loyalty he would have stood up for his colleague, but the “Flagship” is the real person who is afraid of the pretty girl who has ratings just shy of his own.
BTW, I didn’t care for the manner in which Megyn Kelly went after Trump in the first debate. She went after his character — but all she did was ask him to justify his own words. I would have preferred to see her grill him on policy, but I wouldn’t say she was out of line either. Over the next several days Trump went on to impugn her character, called her a bimbo, and made a crude bleeding reference. O’Reilly’s defense of his colleague was lackluster at best.
Come to think of it, Trump and O’Reilly remind me a lot of each other.
Flagship! LOL LOL
He is just as arrogant as Trump. That's why they like each others. Narcissists are like magnets to each other.. Its why Trump has lemmings as followers. Also narcissists. Flocking together
Very well said!!!
Yes there is a mountain of truth there. O’Reilly is full of himself. However, he’s not a cry baby like Trump, he isn’t a vile person like Trump. O’Reilly doesn’t use flattery to win the argument like Trump does. And if that doesn’t work Trump will try to buy you. After that he’ll try to crush you, that’s not O’Reilly.
