Fiorina was too kind to Clinton. We have no idea how “hardworking” Clinton is. Her actions that are coming out in the wipegate scandal certainly lead me to question Clinton’s intelligence. From the Whitewater scandal forward, Clinton’s apparent goal is self enrichment, not public service. And finally, however one looks at it her policies as a pubic servant are a disaster for the country.

We need to understand Trump’s policy prescriptions. It would have been better if Trump had said why he thought Nabisco moved south and what he would do to give them an incentive to stay here. We should assume Nabisco made a business decision made based on the cost of doing business here versus Mexico. If US government policy caused Nabisco to make a rational decision to relocate, boycotting Oreos is the wrong way to solve the problem.
Right on, it's easy to get sucked up in the hype of a campaign speech, especially a Donald Trump speech but I don't think just taxing the snot out of them is going to solve much. Let's face it, government not just at the federal level but state and sometimes even local with their taxes and regulations ain't helping !!!
Good points, but Mr. Trump is merely pointing out the bombs, and the others have the responsibility to remove the bomb, or detonate it.
Mr. Trump isn't getting into the specifics on most of his talking points. Perhaps this is part of the strategy?
Up,to the states to provide incentives to stay!
Yah, he could stand up there and talk about tax relief, overhaul of the tax code, reducing regulations and taxes on business. We have 16 other candidates saying all that and being blamed for cutting taxes on the wealthy, ignoring the "middle class" yata, yata yat. Who is listening? Been to that park, listened to the rant and have a tee shirt (from years ago) to prove it. We all know, including Mr Trump, all that has to be done but what he is telling big business is, "Be careful outsourcing any more jobs! You could be on the outside looking in when I drain the swamp." If he is successful they will delay the moves until they see how he does and swing in behind him when it looks like he is going to win. Remember he wrote the book most smart negotiators use these days. Don't try to out think him many have tried and have the business scars to show for it. Try to figure out what he is doing. Every thing he does is well thought out and most have been battle tested in his business dealings. That includes coming across like a bragging dimwit boob shooting from the hip. You are looking at one of the sharpest and most successful business minds in the world in action. He is engaged in the biggest negotiation of his life, the Presidency of the US! He enjoys what he does and must be having a ball!
He did not get specific with Nabisco, but he did with Ford, which is a lot more $. He would levy an import tax (not on Mexico but on Ford) so that it would cost Ford 35% more to make the cars in Mexico and then ship them to the US. That way, you are not starting a trade war, but setting up a real disincentive for an American company to set up shop outside the US and then ship back for US consumption.

Trump is popular because he focused first on an issue on which most of us agree, illegal immigration. Look at his website, that’s the only policy issue discussed. He is playing off his name recognition as well, and knows how to market himself.
We need to understand all his policy positions, many of which he says today are different from what he advocated in the past. We called that “flipflops” when Romney did it.
Beck has taken the “lets understand his full range of policies” approach, the best one for vetting a candidate.
The candidate who has been most consistent in policy statements over time and with doing what he said he would do is Ted Cruz.
Most of ted Cruzs supporters have defected to trump. Trump realizes bashing illegals is s great way to fire up the base but most serious GOP candidates realize that ticking off Hispanic voters loses the general election. Trump doesn't care he's just having a great time being the center of attention. But Trump is forcing other GOP candidates to take stronger positions on immigration that may cost republicans badly in November. Carson thinks we should stack border crossers with drones and Walker was briefly for ending birthright citizenship ( he now has no opinion after his advisors explained that Hispanic American voters aren't find of that idea)
Cruz is hitching his wagon to Trump and will agree on everything the Donald wants to say . Because he know that some day, in the not too distant future, Trump will royally screw things up,so,much, the support will shift to,Ted by default.
Cruz is a bloody liar, but he's no fool ...but he is not Presidential material!
The country will vote Democrat, at the end of the day, and G.B. Will say " I told you so!"

It’s sad to say this because I know decent Muslim people as individuals. Given the wording in the Koran, the law dictated by God to their prophet, that tells them to spread Islam via jihad until the entire world submits, and that it’s permissible to use violence and lie to infidels to advance Islam, how can we trust Muslims as a group when the fundamentalist Muslims poison the atmosphere with their violence and hatred? How can we tell who is sincere when their religious law tells them it’s moral to lie to infidels?

Instead of reinstating the Patriot Act, how about getting the Muslim Brotherhood and its Civilization Jihad out of government, then educating those who protect us in the true nature of Islam and sharia. Read “Catastrophic Failure: Blindfolding America in the Face of Jihad” by Stephen Coughlin. George W Bush once said “If you’re not with us, you’re against us.” That’s Islam in a nutshell, based on consensus of Islamic scholars regarding Islamic law.

Sorry to all government political scientists, CO2 is to plants as O2 is to us. It’s not pollution. Anyone who calls it pollution is either ignorant or lying.
That's exactly why Progressives enacted the original minimum wage law - it would eliminate those not worth that pay (at that time, it was minorities) and starve them out. They tho't it would get rid of unwanted minorities.
Yea we should just go back to slavery right.

Hillary must assume the voting public is too stupid to pay attention to her total failure as a “public servant” and general corruption. She may be correct. The elected Obama. Twice.

I wish Pence had simply said, “it is the right of any private business owner to choose with whom (s)he will do business.”
Just as it is the right of every basic human American to expect equal service from all public serving business owners.

theBlaze, why label Trey Gowdy as “conservative?” As far as I can see he runs his committees looking for the truth. That should be something any right-thinking person should do regardless of political views. Labeling people is pointless. Compare what they say with what they do, then judge their fitness for public office.

I wonder if Dr K has considered the effect of Cruz’s filibuster on Obamacare and related government shutdown on the 2014 election results. Seems to me there’s a cause and effect there.

Perhaps the good judge missed Mr Cruz’s comments after saying every child has a right to a good education. Mr Cruz spoke of school choice for all and eliminating common core. Just saying something is a “right” doesn’t imply the federal government creating a new bureaucracy. In this case it might imply encouraging the states to dismantle one, the stranglehold of the public school systems in so many areas.
Yup. Right to a "good" education. (Although - it should be "right to have access to good education." A quibble, though.)
NOT a right to a "public education" - and there is a HUGE difference between the two.
And, sorry, Judge - you kill rattlesnakes BEFORE they come into your back yard and are just about to bite your kids. Your ideas - those of the Paulistas - are just about as responsible for Iran on the verge of having nukes as feckless Democrat "diplomacy" is.

Science does not know how life came from non-life. There is nowhere in serious scientific literature a statement of the sort “life does not come from non-life.”

The Avast blog entry linked above names one app they say is malware, but the entry also promotes their premium paid software as detecting these apps. I had Avast’s free version on my phone but removed it because it started putting up annoying pop-ups of its own. This is nothing against Avast, just a personal preference.
