Another Big Night For Lil’ Marco



Battered Rubio vows race ‘only gets better for us’

Saturday night was not kind to Marco Rubio. The Florida senator, badly trailing Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, lost every state and even failed to pick up delegates in some of the contests.

Despite the dismal news, Rubio offered a rosy picture of the race going forward, especially in the winner-take-all Florida primary.

“We’re going to win Florida, and you’ll find out on March 15 how confident we are,” Rubio said, in Spanish, to supporters in San Juan, Puerto Rico, which holds its primary on Sunday. “Tonight we will have more delegates than we did last night,” Rubio promised. “This map only gets better for us.”

If Cruz and Kasich would drop out, Marco would have a lock on second place the rest of the way.

    I did some number crunching on my blog last night. Rubio would need to win almost 70% of all remaining delegates to go to the convention with a majority. There is strategy for Rubio that doesn’t involve a floor fight or a second ballot. Frankly, the most he can hope for now is VP. He’s the GOPe’s designated spoiler to keep Trump or Cruz from winning outright.

    • Somebody says:

      Yes he is, all the more reason NOT to vote for him…..but I guess my sister prefers a back room deal at the convention.

    • 1539days says:

      Oops. There ISN’T a strategy for Rubio where he wins more delegates.

      • Somebody says:

        Marco is the only one that can win the general election. It doesn’t matter that he can’t win primary elections, he’s the only one that can beat Hillary. Don’t believe your lying eyes, listen to the pollsters and the talking heads.

      That was great! Thanks for the post.

      I love the Judge. (And I like that she pointed out the hypocrisy of Romney and his investment in universities.)

      BOOM is right !
      Thanks for this, Denise.

      ❤ Judge Jeanine, and it was a pleasure to watch someone at Fox look enthusiastic, instead of most of them, who have a serious case of the bitter glums.

    • Venus says:

      That was unbelievable! I gasped at parts.

      I bow down to the best rant I’ve ever had the privilege to witness.

    • Anthony says:

      Brava! She just framed it perfectly:

      (re Mitt): “We are sick and tired of legislators with modest means who leave Congess as multimillionaires whose spouses and families get all the contracts from selling the post offices to accessing insider information so they can buy property and flip it. You’re so entrenched that you’re willing to give Hillary Clinton the win.

      It doesn’t matter to you which party, so long as crony capitalism and its paradigm will not change for the elite”

      My dilemma: can I applaud her speech and still hate her dress? (asking for a friend….)

      I like Huck. I most likely would not have voted for him, but I do like him and the way he is able to put things in nutshells for me. He Keeps It Simple for Stupid people like me. KISS😉

    Do we know how many delegates were won by each candidate last night?

  6. leslie says:

    Heard on Chicago Newsradio only moments ago: UIC is being petitioned to cancel the Trump rally scheduled for Friday, March 11. Over 30,000 people have signed a petition for the administration at UIC (U of IL @Chi) to disallow Trump’s rally. The petition was started on (naturally) and reads:

    Cancel Trump’s Rally at UIC Pavilion
    Petition by Andrea Carrillo, Fearless Undocumented Alliance
    To be delivered to Chancellor Michael D. Amiridis, Provost Susan Poser, and Kevin Scheibler, UIC Pavilion Director

    Donald Trump is running on a platform of hate and dangerous intolerance. It has no place in Chicago but especially not at an institution of higher learning.
    In many instances Trump rallies have led to students, youth, and people of color being violently attacked by attendees.
    UIC should not be host to hate. Please cancel the event.

    There are currently 34,729 signatures. NEW goal – We need 40,000 signatures!

    These guys simply have to be the descendants of the former and original Mayor Daley.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I think they’re pulling this at all the campuses. Just proves how special our current crop of snowflakes are. And this is such bullsh*t ….

      In many instances Trump rallies have led to students, youth, and people of color being violently attacked by attendees.

      MoveOn is a Soros funded SJW hate group. I’d guess about 92% of their signatures are generated from overseas. It used to be a pretty good non-partisan gov. watchdog org , until they endorsed Obama and lost a lot of their original members. Just another organization making money off of ignorant people, and what better place to prey than on our campuses😉

    I’m done for this morning and possibly the rest of the day. It’s yet another weekend of birthday parties. This time for the family b’days in March. I have to bake the rest of the morning, go to the movies w my DD and then the “party” the rest of the day. I just have to be home in time for the finale of Downton Abbey.
    Have a great day everyone!

    • taw46 says:

      Have fun with the family!

    • DeniseVB says:

      Have a fun day! What movie did you see and will I like it? 😉

      • leslie says:

        We went to see “West Side Story” in 70mm. It was BIG. and Beautiful. And I’m certain you would love it just as you did the original – because it was the original. 😉
        One of the theaters is having a 70mm film festival and are showing (mostly) older movies in 70mm. They are mostly the epics (Cleopatra, Lawrence of Arabia, West Side Story, etc.)
        Glorious old-fashion movies !!
        I made some bread last night to take to the family b’day bash. So all I have to do now is change my clothes and go — after I take a little rest from all the activities. (really, I’m so much healthier when I’m busy like this. 🙂

    • Anthony says:

      Interesting that they mention Trump’s crossover appeal accounting for his polling numbers. The contests he won last night were closed primaries which didn’t allow any crossover voters to participate. More and more, I’m thinking that crossover appeal is the only consideration for me to decide who to vote for in November

      • DeniseVB says:

        Well the establishment has thrown every “enemy” group connection at him …. liberal, nazi, commie, facist, racist …. so he’ll probably win those group demos😉

  8. lyn says:

    “The irony of being attacked by Romney isn’t lost on Mr. Trump, who has been on a Romney offensive for days, publicly questioning whether his supporters would listen to ‘a failed candidate’ for whom ‘nobody came out to vote.’ ”

    • taw46 says:

      They did not think this through, did they? Not how to reach out to Trump supporters.

      “Where Trump is maverick, Romney is establishment; where Trump is tough, Romney is cautious; where Trump is populist, Romney is elite; where Trump is electrifying, Romney is seen as boring.”

    • elliesmom says:

      I don’t think they’re trying to change the minds of people who are already Trump’s supporters. I think they’re trying to stop him from getting any more. Trump’s percentage of the vote currently doesn’t get him the nomination on the first ballot. If they can hold him to 40% or under, they have a plausible reason for not giving him the nomination. If they can do it without blatantly changing the rules, most of his supporters who are Republicans will vote for whoever the Republican nominee is. Because Not Hillary! and The Supreme Court! They’ll lose a lot of the crossover appeal with Cruz or Rubio, but from what I’ve been hearing, the Republicans think the number of independent voters and Democrats who are voting for Trump in open primaries is a liability for him not an asset.

      • Myiq2xu says:

        Plurality wins in a winner-take-all state net just as many delegates as 90% wins.

      • 1539days says:

        The problem is that Trump could still have almost 50% of the delegates and the next one (likely Cruz) would have less than 40%. Cruz has been saying that Rubio and Kasich need to drop out because that’s the only way he gets 51% of the votes in enough contests.

        This is the GOP’s fault, of course. They didn’t like the length of the 2012 contest so they got more states near the end to be winner take all so that Jeb could wrap up the nomination quickly. Oops.

  9. helenk3 says:

    I just do not trust Rubio. Felt that way from the beginning. Can not give you a reason why, it is just a “gut feeling”,

    As far as the students petitioned to cancel trump’s speech, they are WRONG. You all know I am not a trump supporter, but all candidates have a right to be heard. Remember when free speech was encouraged in the educational system. Now they just want to stifle it. That cheats the students of having different ideas shown to them and kills free ideas and thought.

    • taw46 says:

      Yes, they are wrong. And it isn’t just about stopping Trump’s speech. They have been doing this for a long time, forcing colleges and universities to cancel speakers they disagree with. It is indeed frightening to watch.

    • blowme0bama says:

      Re: Rubio – yeah, he just looks too slick. Always struck me as slimey / phoney.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Chicago has no problem letting someone like Bill Ayers speak to the “precious” student body. Time magazine has put several shocking figures on their man of the year covers (Hitler, Mao). The purpose was the most affect on history and to provoke discussion about it. Win or lose, Trump is making history, the students should be a part of it to understand it. Yeah, even for a creep like Ayers.

    • leslie says:

      At UIC, it isn’t just/only students… who are signing the petition. Since it’s a MoveOn.Org petition, the signatures are coming from all over and are hardly students. When I mentioned it to my dd this morning, she said she had signed it.😦 So I asked her who she thought she’d be voting for and she said HRC. I asked her what she would think if there were a petition to block Hillary from speaking in a public place. She agreed it wouldn’t be appropriate. And she also agreed it isn’t apropos in this case either. But she doesn’t want him to speak at all – anywhere. She also said that if it happened to HRC, the DNC would have to rethink who they were running in the election. I suggested that the voters do that and the candidates all have the right to speak and to be heard. Sadly, the word “constitutional” did not come up.
      I hadn’t thought about Ayers at that point. I wonder if she even knows who he is.

  10. lyn says:

    “For all his talent and good intentions, Rubio proved that there’s something much worse in this populist season than being born on third and thinking you just hit a triple. However subliminal, his sense of upwardly mobile entitlement was weirdly off-putting and perversely reminiscent of the entitled yes-kid who thinks he should get what he wants because he knows exactly how to give his teachers and school administrators exactly what they want. Rather than embodying the 20th-century Republican story of increase earned through luck and pluck, he became an avatar of the 21st-century striver whose stock in trade is his special snowflakehood.”

    • taw46 says:

      That was a good read. And he’s right, Rubama will probably still stay in to the convention. Are the GOPe really that stupid, to keep dragging him along? Or, will they try to get Romney in at the conventional? Maybe try to pull in Jeb again? What a year.

  11. lyn says:

    “Ted Cruz has raised $11 million from Robert Mercer, a computer programmer who is the CEO of the hedge fund Renaissance Technologies. In addition to donating to Cruz’s campaign, Mercer supports the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank, and Robert Mercer is the single largest donor in the 2016 election thus far.
    “The second largest donation, by oil and natural gas investor Toby Neugebauer, is also to Ted Cruz. Neugebauer is a fellow Houstonian who’s given $10 million to the pro-Cruz SuperPAC ‘Keep the Promise.’ ”

    • Somebody says:

      Keep the promise, that’s the super pac that keeps calling my house. That’s the press 2 for English people.

  12. Anthony says:

    The ONLY thing that matters in the primaries is which candidate on either side has the greatest crossover appeal in a General Election.

    As an Independent voter whose state (NY) has closed primaries, I’m accustomed to not having a voice in primary contests. But my voice is usually replaced with action on my part, meaning that if I feel strongly enough about a candidate in a primary race, I can volunteer money, time, or talent.

    Last time I volunteered was in 2008 for that year’s version of Hillary Clinton, whose platform was 180 degrees from where it is at this time. This election, I’m not moved to give my support to any one candidate because none of them appeal to me that strongly.

    If you can, do your best to extricate yourself from the emotional investment you have made in any one particular primary candidate and focus instead on the General Election and which candidate on either side has a proven history of attracting the most crossover votes. Thats the most effective way to decide to whom your vote in November will be cast for.

    As I see it, that would be Hillary Clinton on the left, since Mitt Romney, Glenn Beck and the GOPe have already decided that they will vote for her rather than Donald Trump if he’s the nominee. Cruz might get the majority of Republicans in the primary contest, but the majority of Independents and disaffected Democrats wouldn’t go near him with a ten foot pole.

    On the Republican side, Trump, despite his boorishness, has already managed to attract and record the votes of a lot of Democrats who have soured on Hillary as well as a shitload of Independent voters, none of which would support Cruz in a General Election.

    Just my $0.02

  13. Venus says:

    Rubio is a not-very-bright puppet. He failed out of community college for the love of God,, and he’s never had a job outside of government.
    Cruz is an idealogue — we’ve already had 7 years of an arrogant prick idealogue in the Presidency. We don’t need any more than that.
    Trump — for all his flaws (and there are many) — is the ultimate FU to the establishment who actually thought they were going to force Jeb! on us. Just for taking that loser out, Trump has my respect.
    Hillary and Bernie (another bum who never had a job until his 40s when he got into politics) aren’t even a consideration for me, as no Dem would be after 2008.

    • Anthony says:

      Going into politics is not exactly a shining moment in Bernie’s (non) career. It just replaced welfare benefits with a salary that is also paid by tax dollars.

      One of my favorite questions to ask a Bernout when they’re shrieking about “free college” is “In the 25 years he sat in the Senate on your dime, why did he not chair or even participate in ONE oversight committee or try to author and introduce legislation to address the cost of student loans?”

      Surprisingly, I frequently hear “Because he’s a Washington outsider!!!” as their impassioned response. I remind them that he was in the fucking senate for 25 years, which makes him an insider, they reason that by saying “He was waiting for this moment to bring it up”.

      After appearing to ponder and digest that information, I remind them that he was also waiting since 1968 to begin his political revolution, but had to wait for a generation of really stupid fuckers to reach voting age in order to pull it off.

      That last one usually makes them cry…

    ….. Trump having just arrived at the Doral Golf tournament in his Trumpchopper. Awaiting him was a motorcade of golf carts. So cute when in jumped in the first one and drove it himself to lead the procession to the driving range. He’s supposed to give the winner his trophy at the end of this tourney today.
