Bill O'Reilly: Living In The Age Of Anger, "Anything Could Happen"

A new Gallup poll says 16% of Americans now believe terrorism is the most important problem facing the country today. Thirteen percent say dissatisfaction with government. The economy stands at nine percent. So you can see that anger and fear are presently driving American politics. That has led to the rise of Donald Trump, and to some extent also fuels the candidacy of Bernie Sanders. On the right, President Obama is making many folks furious. They feel that he is a weak leader who has imposed economic hardship on them by stifling the private marketplace in order to redistribute wealth in pursuit of social justice. Thus, millions of voters simply want to elect someone who will smash Mr. Obama’s domestic policies and re-impose America as a strong force in the world. According to all the polls, President Obama … Read entire article »

Doris Kearns Goodwin on Trump: "It Has To Do With Fear And Anxiety," "People Want To Believe" Him

About two minutes into the interview… COLBERT: We have come to the point of the show where I am legally required to ask you about Donald Trump. Are there precedents in American presidential history where someone like Donald Trump runs for president. Becuase he is very popular. DORIS KEARNS GOODWIN: It has to do with fear and anxiety, when a presidential candidate can promise things, maybe not be able to deliver, but people want to believe it. Like Trump is saying we’ll build a wall on the Mexican border and Mexico will pay for it. Tremendous. But the problem with demagogues, is, he makes promises he can’t necesarily keep. He says: I’ll never disappoint you. If a lover made that promise, or a friend, it would be impossible to keep. COLBERT: Demagogues have run … Read entire article »

Krauthammer: Obama Is Still Trying To Convince Us That We Are Winning Against ISIS When It's Obviously Not True

CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: His problem is that he is trying to convince us that we are actually prevailing, winning, pushing in on ISIS. The fact is that his own Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff told Congress that we have not contained ISIS. We had [Senator] Dianne Feinstein the leading Democrat on the Senate [Select Committee] on Intelligence saying that it is expanding. We had the Secretary of Defense — Obama’s own Secretary of Defense — last week telling Congress that we had not contained ISIS. It is obviously expanding. We have Beirut, we’ve got Paris, we’ve got San Bernardino, we have the attack in the Sinai, we have ISIS establishing a colony in the city Sirte in Libya. This is sort of an actual imperial expansion with a satellite, … Read entire article »

Rand Paul Ad Slams Cruz, Rubio About Refugee Danger: "Learn From Mistakes"

“Rand Paul is leading the fight to stop terrorism at our borders and protect Americans first,” says this new ad from the Rand Paul campaign.

Some “refuse to learn from mistakes,” the ad concludes. … Read entire article »

At 24:30 minutes… CHUCK TODD: You are now viewed as the “establishment favorite.” How do handle the word “establishment?” MARCO RUBIO: Well, I know it is meant as a slight, and quite frankly– CHUCK TODD: You feel like that is an attack, when someone calls you “establishment?” MARCO RUBIO: I don’t think it reflects my history.

Darrell Issa Boosts Rubio: "It's Not About Republicans Picking A Nominee, It's About The American People Picking A President"

REP. DARREL ISSA: This whole campaign, Marco has simply been himself, he’s been a uniter. He’s been talking about the next generation –if you will– of wants, needs and conservatism, and it is resonating. Is it resonating first on a given day? No, but it is resonating. But when you look at consistent polls of who is going to win in the general [election], as people have gotten to know Marco Rubio better, they realize he is the alternative to Hillary Clinton. And afterall, they realize it is not about the Republican Party picking a nominee, it is about the American people picking a president who can unite America, who can give us a positive vision, and candidly, deal with a foreign affairs fiasco that has happened over the last … Read entire article »

Bernie Sanders: "We Are A Country Of Millions Of People In Despair," "Is That Reflected On TV?"

At a forum in Cedar Rapids Iowa on Sunday, Bernie Sanders fielded a question from a young Mexican-American woman who says that she developed self esteem issues because she did not see enough cartoon protagonists who resembled her racial group. His answer goes deeper than race and touches the media’s other bias: class. “We are a country where millions of people are in despair,” Sanders said. “Black, white, brown. They want to see a reflection of their life, of their reality, in media, and in many respects, they are not.” “And then they say, who the hell is talking about me? Who knows about my life? Why should I vote? No one cares — No one even knows what’s going on in my life.” QUESTION: I grew up, I’m Mexican-American. We didn’t … Read entire article »

Joe Scarborough: Where On Earth Is Marco Rubio?

JOE SCARBOROUGH: Can I ask a question about Marco Rubio. They’re mad at him in New Hampshire because he doesn’t go there enough. They’re mad at him in Iowa because he doesn’t go there enough. They’re mad at him in Washington D.C. –in the Senate– because he doesn’t show up for votes, he’s not there enough. I saw a headline: “Marco Rubio spotted in the Capitol.” I read these stories that the guy sits around on weekends and watches football games. Even [when I was] running for a lowly Congressional seat, I didn’t watch a football game for two years. If he’s not in Iowa and he’s not in New Hampshire and he’s not in the Capitol, where is he? MARK HALPERIN: Let’s get a Low-Jack on him. SCARBOROUGH: I’m serious? What … Read entire article »
