I predict within 4 years we will begin to see Democrats elected state wide in Texas.  The older Republicans are dying off, and the overwhelming majority of millennials are Democrats and are registering to vote.

When the BV broke the story that John Chambers lost at the Texas Supreme Court, I encouraged the local Republicans to heal and focus on getting De Coss elected.  The Trump factor is any one's guess,  I know Bernie Sanders supporters in NY who will vote for Trump over Hillary because the issue is turning Washington upside down.  These people believe all of Trumps nastiness has only been to get the ignorant to vote for him and that he does not really mean any of what he says when it comes to the nasty comments.  I have no idea, but on the issue of turning Washington upside down I can see Democrats breaking ranks for Trump - and that can include in Cameron County which could help De Coss.


"Both campaigns are blaming the other for attacks on their respective wives".  How sad campaigns are reduced to attacking spouses.  A National Enquirer story on a Cruz sex scandal is not being ignored because last time while the mainstream press ignored the story, it turned out they were right.

From NPR: click to read entire story

"All of it was an outcrop of a heated back and forth between the top-two GOP candidates – about their wives – that began on Twitter and spilled over onto the campaign. It all started, as they say on the playground, with an anti-Trump superPAC running an ad depicting a partially nude Melania Trump and asked Utahns, home to a majority Mormon population, if this is what they want in a first lady. (Cruz went on to win all 40 of Utah's delegates Tuesday night.)

Despite candidates not being allowed to coordinate with superPACs – and Cruz denying he had anything at all to do with what that superPAC did – Trump blamed Cruz. Trump took to Twitter and urged Cruz to "be careful," and threatened to "spill the beans on your wife."

He never did say what the said "beans" were exactly, but he sowed more distrust with Cruz by retweeting an unflattering photo of Cruz's wife juxtaposed with his own wife. On Thursday, Cruz accused Trump of being a "sniveling coward." (We wrap all of that here.) And, by Friday, the Enquirer story popped."

There is nothing presidential about Trump or Cruz.  They are both just making it worse for themselves.  Candidates are lining up to be the nominee in a brokered convention.  If a nominee comes from a brokered convention and it is not Trump of Cruz, you watch the Republicans implode.

Now to be balanced - I do not doubt the Republican Super PAC's are going to have a million negative ads against Hillary rehashing the same old stories.  So it can still be any one's guess.


"Of Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who has alienated Republicans and Democrats alike, Graham said, "A good Republican would defend Ted Cruz after tonight. That ain't happening. If you killed Ted Cruz on the floor of the Senate and the trial was in the Senate, nobody could convict you."

" Sen. Lindsey Graham is disgusted with the GOP's embrace of Donald Trump: "My party has gone batshit crazy."

"In no-holds-barred remarks at a celebratory dinner Thursday night, the South Carolina senator and unsuccessful presidential candidate said the GOP has lost all semblance of sanity and predicted the party will suffer irrevocable losses in November if it backs Trump."

The local tit for tat between the Republicans which has been going on for over a year, is nothing compared to what is happening at the National level.

If the Republican Party puts out negative Hillary ads, wouldn'the that give the Sanders campaign the push it needs to defeat her? Doesn't Sanders have a better chance of defeating Trump in the general election? I do not see the logic of pushing negative Hillary ads, but then I don'the understand a lot of the decisions that are being made in the current presidential campaign.

The anti-Hillary ads will not start until after the nomination process is complete. Sanders will not longer be in the race.

At the risk of being called a troll I have to ask how you "broke" the story that Chamber's lost at the Texas Supreme Court. Perhaps it is just a matter of definition but wouldn't it have been more accurate to say you reprinted the story? I saw the story on mainstream media before you re-posted it so didn't they "break" the story and you helped it along?

No one got the story until the day's orders were released. I get an email the second the days orders were released and then posted the order. But as always go with the distraction instead of address the point of the post - the Republicans hitting the Self Destruct Button.

The days orders were maybe a view minutes old in the time it took me to post the story

If Hillary Clinton gets the Democratic party nomination and let's say she wins the general election, do you believe she would offer Bernie Sanders a cabinet position? VP?

BobbyWC said...

Bernie would not accept a position because their policy objectives are too different.

Castro the former mayor of SA will be chosen by Hillary for VP
