GOP Rival calls Trump the “Prince of Darkness”!

Ohio Governor and GOP presidential candidate John Kasich (R-OH) recently called Donald Trump the “Prince of Darkness”! That would have been bad enough but Kasich didn’t stop there… he then doubled-down and called himself the “Prince of Light”! I think first of all, I have the experience and I’ve had success and I’ve been a reformer all lot my life. You can’t come from the [inaudible] rocks as you know Hugh, and not be a reformer, and I have a message – look, we have a lot of candidates Read more […]

Another GOP Candidate Drops Out

Former Governor of New York, George Pataki (R-NY) has decided to end his Quixotic campaign for the White House after failing to gain any traction with American voters. He delivered a heartfelt adieu earlier this week, and he argued that while he was leaving the race, he was sure that at the end of the day the GOP and the American people would elect the right person to be the next President. “If we’re truly going to make America great again, we need to elect a president who will do three things.

Ohio Governor John Kasich Whines about Donald Trump

On Sunday, Ohio Governor (and Presidential candidate) John Kasich (R-OH) appeared on ABC in an effort to revive a flailing (and failing) presidential campaign. Instead of spending his time talking about his ideas for our nation, Governor Kasich used his limited screen time to attack and complain about… you guessed it… Donald Trump. Karl’s main argument against Trump goes something like this – He may be up in ALL of the polls… but I’ve done a bunch of Town Hall meetings in New Hampshire, Read more […]

Ted Cruz Rips the Liberal Media During CNBC Debate!

The GOP presidential debate on CNBC had some explosive moments but most of them were between the candidates and the moderators – which is not ideal in a debate. Ted Cruz, Chris Christie, Dr. Ben Carson and Marco Rubio all went toe to toe with the moderators and the mainstream media. It was Cruz’s which packed the most punch though… John Harwood: “Congressional Republicans, Democrats and the White House are about to strike a compromise that would raise the debt limit, prevent a government Read more […]

Republican Presidential Candidate Defends Obamacare – So Why Are Some Republicans Supporting Him?

  Earlier this week Ohio Governor John Kasich (R-OH) continued to prove that he is one of the most liberal of the Republican candidates for president when he chose to defend Obamacare and Medicaid. Not only that, Kasich also proved that he was one of the most despicable candidates for President when he chose to use liberal tactics against conservative Christian voters. When Kasich was forced to defend his decision to expand Medicaid in Ohio and defend Obamacare, the Governor decided first Read more […]

Playing Down Carly Fiorina’s Debate Performance

I want to assure everyone that I am not a part of the “establishment” media. See, yesterday I published a post at Eagle Rising giving my opinion of what happened during Wednesday nights’ GOP debate. My take was that Carly Fiorina was the clear victor in the debate, a stance which is now being pooh-poohed by several candidates and some conservative pundits. For example, one of my favorite radio hosts, “the Great One,” Mark Levin now argues that Fiorina has clearly become a darling of Read more […]

Huckabee vs. Kasich on Kim Davis Imprisonment

John Kasich is the center-right Governor of Ohio, and Mike Huckabee is the populist former Governor of Arkansas, and while they agree on a lot of issues, Kim Davis is not one of them. On Sunday that division between the two GOP candidates for president could not have been more evident when both men appeared (at separate times) on ABC’s This Week with George Stephanopoulos. Governor Kasich does not support Davis’ dissent and says that the Kentucky county clerk must comply and give marriage Read more […]

Ted Cruz to Lead 50-State Crusade Against Planned Parenthood!

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) is slowly emerging from the GOP pack as the best and furthest right, conservative candidate. While Cruz has yet to win any major poll across the nation, he has consistently finished in the top four or five along with Donald Trump, Dr. Ben Carson, Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio. Being lumped together with this group allows Cruz to portray himself as clearly the most conservative and experienced of the upper-echelon of GOP candidates. There is a reason that Cruz is consistently Read more […]

The latest GOP Poll is Out and the Results May Shock You

Fox News released the results from their latest national poll on the race for the White House, and the results are pretty surprising – no matter what your perspective of the last week in politics is. If you’re a Donald Trump fan you may be surprised to learn that his numbers have slipped just a tick. If you’re anti-Trump you’ll probably surprised to learn that he’s still the BIG frontrunner. Even more surprising is how things play out with the next tier of candidates… While Donald Read more […]

Ohio Governor John Kasich Joins the GOP Race for the White House!

John Kasich makes lucky number 16 for the GOP as the field continues its slow and steady expansion. On Tuesday Governor John Kasich (R-OH) walked out onto a stage at the Ohio Union at Ohio State University and delivered a speech that many observers believed was a long time coming. Kasich told the rest of the nation that he was officially throwing his hat into the right to run for President. Here’s just a piece of his comments – you can read the full transcript here. These are the worries Read more […]

Is Your Candidate an “Iowa or Bust” Candidate or a “New Hampshire or Bust” Candidate?

This past Sunday on NBC’s Meet the Press Chuck Todd divided all of the declared GOP candidates into three different groups; “Iowa or Bust,” “New Hampshire or Bust” or “Crossover.” In the New Hampshire column are the moderate candidates hoping to win in the Granite State and earn some momentum early. These candidates include Chris Christie (R-NJ), John Kasich (R-OH), George Pataki (R-NY), Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Jeb Bush (R-FL). In the Iowa column are the conservative candidates who Read more […]

Republican Presidential Candidate takes on the Pope over Global Warming

Is Ohio Governor and Republican Presidential candidate John Kasich wading into dangerous waters with his retort to Pope Francis on Global Warming? If he wants to make sure that he holds on to every vote possible, he may well be risking losing more than a few Roman Catholic votes by daring to speak out against the Pope’s recent encyclical. However, in a majority Protestant nation, he may actually be bolstering his standing with the majority of Republican voters by taking a stand against Global Warming Read more […]

Donald Trump Announces that He Will be Making a Special Announcement

Oy. So, on Monday billionaire Donald Trump released a special media advisory memo announcing that he would be making a very special announcement from his Trump Tower on June 16th at 11am. The day is just two weeks away and the memo indicates that “the Donald” is planning to announce his plans concerning the Presidential race at the press conference.     While I happen to think that Donald Trump as a GOP candidate is kind of a joke and just another way for Mr. Trump to Read more […]

John Kasich says “Don’t Count Me Out!”

Ohio’s Governor John Kasich (R-OH) is a darkhorse candidate for the GOP nomination to the White House. He is popular in his purple home state and he has extensive credibility as a capable politician. He’s also well-liked in establishment circles and hasn’t completely alienated himself from conservatives (though he’s pushed them to the brink). However, Kasich simply does not have the gravitas to conquer this GOP field, especially with other capable and experienced candidates (like Jeb Bush, Bobby Read more […]
