In anticipation of tonight’s GOP Debate in Milwaukee (and you gotta think Scott Walker had been anticipating that hometown crowd), here is former Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman on FOX Business with the debate preview!
You can tell Governor Dave was champing at the bit to get in a last word after the Democrat talking head’s slander.
Ah well. Maybe…just maybe…Governor Heineman will be on ANOTHER media outlet tomorrow morning…that you can listen to…on this website…
The campaign never sleeps
The NRCC has a new ad out as part of their campaign against Democrat Congressman Brad Ashford. See it here:
And here’s the script…
ANNOUNCER: Across America, some cities are safe havens for illegal immigrants who commit violent crimes.
Crimes such as burglary.
Aggravated assault. Rape. Even murder.
In Congress, Brad Ashford could have made these cities enforce immigration laws.
Instead, Ashford voted with Barack Obama, providing sanctuary to thousands of hardened criminal illegal immigrants.
Brad Ashford failed.
And our families are at risk.
Wait, so Brad Ashford doesn’t vote just like a Republican?
But aren’t his FRIENDS all Republicans?…
Democrats for Democrat
As it turns out, there is a reason Democrat Brad Ashford’s first name is “Democrat”. Because that is way he fits in with all of his pals.
See the list of said pals, here:
As you can see, Ashford is hosting a funder with special guest, Jim Messina.
Just the former Obama White House Deputy Chief of Staff to Rahm Emmanuel, and Obama’s 2012 campaign manager. That guy.
The guy credited with being “integral” to passing the ObamaCare…with zero GOP votes.
And, along with all the Democrats in town, THAT is who is buttering Brad Ashford’s bread.
Also, notice all the sidwalk chalk art
Just a few thoughts on the Yale and University of Missouri videos and themes that are being passed around of late — and in this morning’s update.
Many are positing the downfall of civilization with those issues and the students who are living that dream.
Yes, DREAM. As in…campus life has almost nothing to do with post-college reality.
It is not a bad thing to have the discussion and debate and philosophizing that occurs on college campuses. The problem is that students there think they are on a different planet while on a campus, and forget how the real world actually works.
Not that this is anything new. I encountered that student, who screamed at the Yale faculty guy, dozens of times in my undergraduate days. They have always been, and will always be, around.
Except now, everyone has a movie camera in their pockets, so instead of the students just walking away and forgetting about her tirade (as everyone there did), she is forever memorialized on social media.
(Just to realize the type of Yale student that was taking part in that bull-session on the Quad, note that they were all — for real — snapping their fingers of approval during the discussion. Bluto Blutarsky would have smashed their guitars.)
I have also encountered the kooky professors, like the one at Mizzou, who no one can believe is allowed to teach at a college. Students there no doubt shrug at her existence among them. People on the outside though see her and are astounded. As rightly they should be — considering who pays her.
While both situations could be swept away and ignored, it is at least valuable for the average observers to understand what is considered “normal” on college campuses.
And it is also worthwhile for the college campus residents to hopefully realize that the bubble they are living in is NOT normal.
And only lasts for 4 (or possibly 5) short years.
How to watch the debate
Hey, if you don’t have FOX Business, you can still watch and listen to tonight’s debate online at FoxBusiness.com through their Listen Live link, here.
(If for some reason that doesn’t work, just click HERE for FoxBusiness.com and click their Listen Live link.)
The Undercard debate starts at 6pm CT (7pm ET, 5pm MT) and includes (newly demoted) Mike Huckabee and Chris Christie, as well as Bobby Jindal and Rick Santorum. Alas, last debate’s (arguable) winner, Lindsey Graham and George Pataki have been kicked to the curb.
And then at 8pm CT (9pm ET, 7pm MT) the Main Event starts.
It will include Donald Trump, Ben Carson, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Jeb Bush, John Kasich, Carly Fiorina and Rand Paul.
By the way, go back to the morning update, and remember who was in the lead at this time in the last two elections, and who the ended up with the nomination. As Governor Dave notes, we are STILL in the early stages.
It’s like a virtual corner slice
And as always, if you’re not at a watch party at a fine Pizza Establishment, you should watch the debate with me on the Twitter!
