Campaign Notes

    Between Twitter and all-day cable coverage of every bump and grind in NH, it's politics as entertainment and today Ted Cruz declared Donald Trump is "losing it" as in his mind while The Donald rattled at Cruz about the tactics used in Iowa.
    A lot of this stuff always has gone on, it's just that we see it now with so much media in the Granite State.....Or the Live Free or Die State, if you prefer.
     I enjoy watching and find myself second guessing a lot of what is said..
     Meanwhile the herd is thinning with Rand Paul and possibly Rick Santorum out. More will be gone in a week.   I suspect Christie, as he is running scorched earth this week with his calling of Marco Rubio, "the boy in the bubble."
     I think Bush Nation thinks he can hold out till the party turns to him, and Governor Kasich is banking on a strong NH showing to keep him going. We assume he will win the Ohio primary, so he has something to look forward to.
     Carly Fiorina is so done,
      By next Wednesday, the race is Trump, Cruz, Rubio, Bush and Kasich....Where it goes from there I don't know.
      Now the Dem race is getting interesting. After the party bosses' finger on the scale win for Hillary in Iowa, there is real bad blood and the knives are out. At the Sanders rally on Monday, the crowd was chanting "Liar, Liar" while Mrs. Clinton was on the giant TVs.
      The Clintons are feeling the "Bern".
       As for coverage, MSNBC provides the most and their reporters are top notch. CNN is decent and FOX is OK, but you don't get to see as much of the action, although I like The Five.

The humble, gracious Trump didn't last very long. Frankly, I'm surprised he managed to keep his dumb act up for a whole speech.

He may have a legitimate grievance here though. Cruz's campaign clearly decided to play dirty. But then he’s a “Christian” so what else is new.

As I said before,Trump reminds me of a petulant child,thought that he was going to demand his ball and bat back and go home cause he didn't like the way things went.Do you really want such a crybaby type in charge,especially if things don't go his way on the world stage?

Don't be surprised if Kasich has a 1st, 2nd or 3rd place showing.

I was over in the Old Granite State months ago and was very surprised while eating at a real seafood casual establishment. Witnessed a few name tag Kasich ground game volunteers getting out the vote. This was months ago when the media hog Trumpster's jet probably not even had landed on the jetpad as yet.

Billy is looking like a scarecrow these days, some serious health issues he himself is hiding? Maybe he should cut back the hours on meeting with his Energizer Mistress the one that darling Chelsea can't acknowledge.

Or 4th, 5th or 6th...

More likely behind Christie or Fiorina in the single digits, 759A.
