Everyone thinks that the run begins when the exploratory committees are formed.
Truly, it really doesn’t begin until there are announcements for candidacy.
But it becomes OFFICIAL when the mudslinging begins! And it has!
There is an attack as against Sen. Dr. Rand Paul by Karl Rove & Jeb Bush! Bush hasn’t even announced his candidacy but he has the gall to go into cahoots with Rove to launch an attack ad!
The RNC, headed by Reince Prieibus, mailed, to all the media outlets, a thumb drive of Hillary’s emails.
Wouldn’t it be so refreshing, and actually worth paying attention to each candidate, if they each stuck to their own campaign?
Each person that puts their name in the “hat” for the run for any election would do well to simply focus their campaign on THEIR plans, their solutions, their answers to OUR questions.
No campaign should be “S/He who has raised the most money wins.”To be honest, it absolutely sickens me to see how much money gets spent during campaigns when our deficit is so enormous!
Every candidate should be available to the press, for answering questions, whether they like it or not. AND they should be available to answer questions from the people that come out to see/hear them while they travel to ‘get votes”
Each candidate should have a solid platform to run on. They should be able to answer questions without having to refer to notes or being fed answers through an ear piece. Campaign managers aren’t the ones running for office so leave the candidate to answer for themselves!
What this country needs are solutions and plans on how to bring those solutions into fruition.
Mudslinging is for children and it doesn’t belong in politics!
First of all, I have to make it clear that I am not a Rand Paul supporter.
However, I feel that I have to speak out, in his defense, of how he is being portrayed in the media as of late. It is quite ridiculous that he his harsh on women reporters/journalists.
Here, Sen. Dr. Rand Paul is criticized for ‘shooting’ the interviewer, however, if you will note, she did NOT give him a question, she made a statement and he wanted to correct the statement. At the end of the interview, he was correct in how the media handles these things. They need to come with questions that matter about the voting records, the bills, or the campaigns. What she was doing was not right and it is exactly how ALL journalists and TV hosts are.If it were Hillary Clinton being interviewed in this same way, and she responded in the same way, the outcome would be totally different.
Now here he is, criticized for correcting this interviewer for how she runs through a list at rapid fire, and he is trying to stop her because she is editorializing and not asking questions. If she is going to INTERVIEW someone, she should ASK questions. He has every right to stop the interview to be able to get a chance to ANSWER questions. He has done nothing wrong here. Again I say, if it were Hillary Clinton that were interviewed in the same way, and she responded in the same way, the outcome would be totally different.
I have missed out on a lot of great laughs because I never knew about The Daily Show! I did post a debate between the two that had me laughing for DAYS because Stewart had a platform that would make him taller behind his podium! Had he taken the debate a bit more seriously, he would have probably won more GOPs over, but he was hilarious to me anyway and now he’s done with the Daily Show. 😦
I hope you enjoy this exchange on O’Reilly’s “The Factor” Where the spin stops here because we’re looking out for you! (I have never understood what the heck he meant by that.) I don’t enjoy his show as I find him an arrogant and rude man. And then he travels around doing shows with Dennis Miller and calls it “Don’t be a Pinhead”… nice… name-calling from a GOP. I thought only liberals did that Mr. O’Reilly. ~ nanarhonda ~ copyright 2015
This was taken from an email that I get every day. I usually don’t pay much attention to it but this one caught my eye. What did she have to hide? Why did she use her personal email account instead of the government one that is archived? She has MUCH to answer for, but the big question is WILL SHE? ~ nanarhonda ~ copyright 2015
Clinton used personal email while Secretary of State
Hillary Rodham Clinton used a personal email account during her time as secretary of state, rather than a government-issued email address, potentially hampering efforts to archive official government documents required by law.
Clinton’s office said nothing was illegal or improper about her use of the non-government account and that she believed her business emails to State Department and other .gov accounts would be archived in accordance with government rules.
“Like secretaries of state before her, she used her own email account when engaging with any department officials,” Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill said. “For government business, she emailed them on their department accounts, with every expectation they would be retained. When the department asked former secretaries last year for help ensuring their emails were in fact retained, we immediately said ‘yes.’”
Now HERE is something that I can appreciate Gov. Walker for! All law-abiding citizens should be able to exercise their 2nd Amendment Rights! And, they will also be held accountable as well, just like any other law on the books. ~ nanarhonda ~ copyright 2015
Walker backs end to gun waiting period
Published 38 minutes ago
Gov. Scott Walker has thrown his support to a bill that would eliminate Wisconsin’s 48-hour waiting period for handgun purchases.
Walker said he wants the state to be a leader on the issue. The Wisconsin State Journal reported Tuesday that Walker’s remarks came in an interview last week with the National Rifle Association’s news network.
A bill before legislators would eliminate Wisconsin’s 40-year-old law that requires the wait between the time a background check is submitted to the Department of Justice and a handgun is acquired.
