I saw an unconfirmed report Jeb wants to make Puerto Rico our 51st state.

Can you think of a better place to build Supermax prisons once Obama gives away Gitmo?

Just when I think I am politically hardened, something comes along to burst that bubble. I read something in a Democratic leaning blog that left me speechless.

The writer's claim was that Ted Cruz popularity was GOP strategy to appeal to Hispanics.  You read something like that, you really don't know how to react. Maybe foremost, that demonstrates the Democratic mind set as well as anything. I suppose we could think this was meant as an insult, but considering the source, I am not so sure.

Chicago Democratic Machine Boss Richard Daley used to spend every morning going over city hires and contracts, checking them off by neighborhood and ethnicity, to make sure the patronage was distributed over the range. That way, he kept his army of ward healers and operatives happy and working on the behalf of the Democratic Machine. At first, this method seems fair and honorable, until we stop to think, in the process, Daley was molding city government into a race and religion based Ponzi scheme, with himself at the head. 

Now, Democrats cannot imagine that Ted Cruz or the conservatives might have something worth listening to. They are too obsessed with Chicago styled politics, truth be known, the politics that have turned Chicago, and many other American cities, into what we see today.

I  honestly expect to read someday that JEB Bush married a lady from Mexico and convered Catholic to broaden his voter appeal.  Right, a Bush, no less. Moral of the story is the Democrats are so far out in left field...well, look at the two candidates, so far.

Privately-owned prisons would offer honest jobs for construction, guarding and maintaining these places. It would be terrific for their economy and "the" place to be sent to, if we built it to Democrat standards (Club Fed times 10). If conservatives build it, the cell doors would last 10,000 years, opening once on arrival and again on parole of that cell's inhabitant.

Back to Ted Cruz's campaign.....

It looks like there is a well oiled machine ginning  through the early primary States that is growing Cruz's base.  As the article says.... he seems to be hitting on a lot of cylinders!!

Ted is striking a chord with people who hear his message.

That is a good report. It seems to show what supporters have been saying all along; namely, that Senator Cruz's  presence causes conceptions learned from TV and avid opponents to vanish. Supporters have said from the start that the key to winning support is to get the Senator in front of as many people as possible, in person, not on TV.

The Bushes and Clintons run TV based campaigns.  Obama's was largely cell phone, with a lot of ground work. Obama could have been all right. He just is not the right person to be leading America.
Too much early far left indoctrination.

And it was encouraging to learn that his fund raising is rising to the level needed to continue competing with the wealthy candidates.  I think he is right on schedule with his game plan.  He is continuing to rise in popularity and the media is treating him with much more respect than in the beginning.  He has earned his "wings"!   :wink:

It is a little early to talk about supervised national elections.
Electronic machines, padded rolls, and aliens, they add up.
Maybe we could get some value out of all this DHS expense.

POWER PLAY: MEET TED CRUZ'S DATA GURU
In his drive to be the GOP's nominee, Ted Cruz is making a big bet on big data. Cruz's director of Research and Analytics, Chris Wilson, joins Chris Stirewalt to look at the campaign's forward-leaning approach and how it shapes campaign outreach and messaging. WATCH HERE.

Fighting words - While campaigning in South Carolina, Cruz went on the attack against his fellow GOP Sixteeners for failing to stand up for religious liberty, among other things. It was a shift in tone and strategy. Lucky for you, then, that David Drucker was there to tell you what it meant.

Cruz interrogated on culture - Bloomberg's Mark Halperin interviewed Cruz a few weeks ago on the Texas senator's 2016 campaign plan and events, but mid-interview things took a nasty turn. The interview flew under the radar last week​ until Ruben Navarrette, a friend of Cruz, wrote a column on the racist questions Halperin asked. Questions like Cruz's favorite Cuban dishes, and songs were fired like a cultural test rather than an interview. But Halperin really sealed the deal when he asked Cruz to welcome Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., to the race...in Spanish.

Poor Halperin tried to play gotcha with Ted.

Here's the football equivalent of Halperin's play:

I just wanted to sum up why the candidates need to ignore lib media. No One Watches Them, Unless a Conservative Is On.
And even then, no one pays them any mind, until we read about it from a Conservative source.. :cool:
