Weekly Wrap Up

“Things can’t get any worse” seems to be the defining theme for the “outsider” candidates in the 2016 presidential race. Charles Krauthammer assures us that, yes, things can get much worse – especially if America is allowed to sink into socialism and strong-arm totalitarianism. 

Meanwhile, as the race continues – can things get worse for Hillary Clinton? Yes, they can – Investor’s Business Daily explains why

In their debate this week, the Democrats painted a dire picture of America – one where hope and opportunity are all but lost. Now remind me – who’s been in the White House the past seven years?

Even the liberal PBS moderators were getting fed up with the Democrats’ left-wing spectacle. 

Hillary was not asked about the latest Clinton Foundation bombshell – not a surprise, since one of the debate moderators is a Clinton Foundation donor

It’s telling that the media, which predicts doom-and-gloom when even moderately conservative ideas are proposed, don’t see anything concerning about Bernie Sanders-style socialism.

Sanders can win all he wants, but the truth is it might not matter – the Democratic Party’s primary system is far from democratic.

Do you think that the Democratic primary is rigged for Hillary, no matter what liberal voters want? Vote today in our new Weekly Poll.

On the GOP side, “We’re starting nearly at scratch when it comes to knowing what’s happening in the South Carolina Republican presidential race.” That’s according to Byron York, writing in the Washington Examiner.

Carly Fiorina suspended her presidential campaign this week, and I for one will miss having her on the campaign trail – I agree with the Washington Examiner that her anti-cronyism message was outstanding.  

Chris Christie left the race this week, too – and I know some people will miss his brash, “tell it like it is” campaign style. 

Of all the candidates who have dropped out of the Republican presidential race, who do you miss the most? I’m very interested to see the results of this Weekly Poll question. 

Monday is President’s Day – here is a look at the history of the holiday, and the White House website has biographical information on all of America’s Commanders-in-Chief. 

In the spirit of this holiday, here’s this week’s final Poll question: Who is your favorite President from the past 100 years?

This takes us all the way back to Woodrow Wilson, and includes some interesting names to think about: Coolidge and Roosevelt, Truman and Eisenhower, all the way through Reagan, two Bush administrations and of course, Barack Obama. 

Cast your vote today – and have a great weekend!
