Gotta love grasping at straws.

Anyone who likes Ben Carson is mad. Rand Paul is certainly interesting, if only because he's something that peaks interest in the youthful spectrum. About as elects abl as his father...

I really think Rand Paul is among my least favorite potential candidates to run for office in a while. He's antivax, homophobic and the result of political nepotism, which is the worst. He's a dipshit.

I liked his father. He was batshit crazy and I would never vote for him, but it was tough to question his sincerity. Rand is already selling out and alienating the crazies:

Oh I totally agree 100%. Me calling him interesting didn't necessarily imply anything good.

And yet they are accepted by elite IVY league schools. Maybe IVY league is our problem.

As someone with strongish libertarian leanings, I quite like Ron Paul (though I probably still wouldn't vote for him in a general election), but I really don't like Rand Paul. He took right-libertarianism and gave it way too much of a dose of Christian Right Tea Partyism.

He tries to leach off of his father's following but not end up as a reject.

It doesn't really work.

This is hilarious, thought it was be even more hilarious (and awesome) if it had been true

Bloomberg falls for fake Nancy Reagan report - POLITICO.com

Quote:
Bloomberg Politics published a report about Nancy Reagan based off of fake news site NationalReport.net

The piece, headlined "Nancy Reagan gives her endorsement to... Hillary Clinton," quoted a supposed "Drudge Report" saying that the former first lady told the History Channel series "First Ladies In Their Own Words" that it's time for a female president.

"For the GOP, this is slightly awkward. Since Ronald Reagan's presidency, and especially since his death, the Gipper's legacy has been worshipfully celebrated, often claimed, by Republican candidates," the article stated.

The problem is: Reagan never said such a thing and the series was actually on C-SPAN, not The History Channel. The report seems to have come from NationalReport.net, a spoof news site that has tricked many a politician and news organization in the past. The piece was then posted to a website called DrudgeReport.com.co, which doesn't seem to be connected to the actual Drudge Report.

The piece, which was published just before 5 p.m. on Friday, was deleted within minutes.

We've reached out to a Bloomberg spokesperson for comment and will update here accordingly.

UPDATE (6:05p.m.):

Bloomberg has reposted the article with a note that the piece has been retracted.

"This story has been retracted. We fell for a hoax. Apologies," the note states.

Bloomberg Politics Executive Editor Mike Nizza said in a tweet "very very stupid mistake, and one we take very seriously. Simple as that."

yes, but this is common

sure this time the story was 100% false, but daily we have stories that have 10%. 15% , 25% bad information in them, And people watch The Daily Show spinning stories for laughs that make them many times 40% or more not factual to fit the joke. And what we end up with is a conglomeration of stories and talking points based on shotty reports that many accept as credible.

the 2016 primary season has been shortened quite a bit, I think GOP will have a nom by April. He can lose some early primaries if he comes in top 3 and then win the bigger states and lock it up. The Convention is earlier too, to give the party more time to rip on the Dem ticket.

Still not a big fan of Hillary but I thought her announcement video was terrific. It came across as very positive and more importantly very apolitical (for the biggest political beast out there). If you remember some years ago when Elliot Spitzer was running for governor of NY, he hired a Madison Avenue ad agency to do his ads and they were just gorgeous and looked NOTHING like your typical election ads. This reminded me very much of that style.

Hillary's announcement video was great. Wondering if any other Democrats will step up to the plate in the coming months.

Watching the news this morning, I will confidently say that Chris Christie is a talented politician.

Jeb will not win the GOP primary 42% of gop voters will not vote for him. The chamber of commerce crowd is all he has right now and it's all he will get because of his immigration position

Then it's Hillary's to lose.

Who else will the GOP throw up there that won't completely embarrass themselves?
