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.
