The Left Column
(AP) -- The New Hampshire primary winners are Donald Trump on the Republican side and Bernie Sanders in the Democratic race. Each took the top spot after second-place finishes in the Iowa caucuses.
Trump's first victory of the 2016 White House race means he's no longer a political rookie but the front-runner for his party's presidential nomination.
(ABC) Bernie Sanders and John Kasich picked up the most votes as the first ballots of the first-in-the-nation primary were cast early Tuesday. Sanders won over all four Democratic voters in the tiny town of Dixville, while Kasich sneaked past Donald Trump, 3-2, among Republicans.
(Politico) “We are taking our message to families that are struggling to raise their children in the 21st century, because as you saw, Jeanette and I are raising our four children in the 21st century,” he said without taking a breath. “And we know how hard it is to install our values in our kids, instead of the values they try to ram down our throats," he added.
Rubio then said more or less the same thing again.
“In the 21st century it’s become harder than ever to instill in your children the values they teach in our homes and in our church, instead of the values they try to ram down our throats in the movies, in music, in popular culture,” he said after a brief pause, seeming to recognize his mistake as he said the word "throats."
(HuffPo) Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush wants to get rid of the Supreme Court's 2010 Citizens United decision, but it's not because he's worried about too much money in the political system.
No, he wants to let all those wealthy donors to super PACs just send their unlimited checks directly to the candidates' campaigns.
"If I could do it all again, I'd eliminate the Supreme Court ruling," Bush told CNN on Monday. "This is a ridiculous system we have now where you have campaigns that struggle to raise money directly and they can't be held accountable for the spending of the super PAC that's their affiliate."
(Right Wing Watch) NRA board member Ted Nugent posted a photo of Jewish leaders on his Facebook page today with the caption “So who is really behind gun control?” alleging that “these punks” support stricter gun laws because they “hate freedom.” Just to drive home the point that the pictured activists and politicians are Jewish, the photo includes an Israeli flag emblem by each person’s face. “Tell every1 you know how evil they are,” Nugent wrote. “Let us raise maximum hell to shut them down!”
(The Hill) Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R) is blasting Beyoncé’s latest single, “Formation,” and her "outrageous" performance in a headline-making Super Bowl halftime show.
“I think it was outrageous,” Giuliani said in a Monday Fox News interview. “I think the half-time show was ridiculous anyway. I don’t know what the heck it was. A bunch of people like bouncing around and doing strange things. It was terrible.”
Either of them would make a great president.
One big takeaway, for me, is that the two of them really respect each other, and however it turns out, they will be united in the important fight against the GOP.
Tonight, the Democratic Party won.
