New Hampshire Primary: Rubio Announces “Obama Knows Exactly What He’s Doing”

Marco Rubio’s supporters pushed, shoved and wrestled demonstrators dressed as robots outside a polling place in Manchester, NH on Tuesday.  The demonstrators were mocking his robotic rhetoric in last Saturday’s GOP Presidential Debate from Saint Anselm College.

During the debate, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie eviscerated him for repeating the same canned talking points four times.  Rubio insisted for days afterwards that the confrontation had not wounded his campaign.

A somber Rubio blamed himself for his pathetic fifth place finish confessing, “I’m disappointed with tonight, but I want you to understand something.  Our disappointment tonight is not on you.  It’s on me.  I did not do well on Saturday night, so listen to this.  That will never happen again.  That will never happen again.”

New Hampshire Primary: Simpering Fat Man To Weigh Future Of His Presidential Campaign

The Associated Press is reporting that Governor Chris Christie will be heading back to New Jersey to “take a deep breath” after finishing a distant sixth place in tonight’s New Hampshire primary. 
His dismal finish disqualifies him to participate in Saturday’s GOP debate in Greenville, South Carolina which will be carried by CBS.
I bet he could use a hug from The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer right about now.
UPDATE 2-10-16:  At 11:26 AM The Washington Times reported that NJ Governor Chris Christie would be issuing a statement later this afternoon suspending his presidential campaign. 

New Hampshire Primary: The Mailman’s Son Comes In Second

When Ohio governor John Kasich entered the already crowded GOP race for president he tried to distinguish himself as a “regular guy” citing ad nauseum his roots as a blue-collar son of a mailman who carried and delivered mail to families in McKees Rock just outside of Pittsburgh.

The voters of New Hampshire handed Donald Trump a victory just as polls had predicted for weeks but they also cast their votes for Kasich giving him a victory over rivals Jeb Bush, Chris Christie and Marco Rubio.

New Hampshire Results Starting to Trickle In


Keep in mind that these results are extremely preliminary as reported by Fox News with only 1% reporting.  The numbers, however, are correct.  So far, so good, on the Democrat numbers.

The Republican numbers are being re-analyzed, since they show John Kasich at 24%, and that's assumed to be a technical error.

UPDATE:  Frank Luntz's focus group is warming up.

Happy Buy Day!

Today's the day! First chance this week to get out of the house and buy some Doritos! 

I have several stops to make and I'm going to buy large quantities of Doritos at every one of them. I expect to be typing with orange, nacho flavored fingers sometime between now and dinner time. 

Operator: 9-1-1, what is your emergency? 
Me: Yes, a madman has broken in and filled my kitchen with bags of Doritos! 
Operator: I'm sorry sir, what is your emergency? 
Me: There's still room in the den!


Disneyland® Adds New Attraction For Cam Newton: “Sucking Pit Of Despair”

How did Peyton Manning celebrate his team’s Super Bowl 50 victory? He went to Disneyland! Following the Denver Broncos victory over the Carolina Panthers at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Peyton—joined by his children, Mosley and Marshall—celebrated with fans at the Happiest Place on Earth with a parade Monday down Main Street, USA.

Cam Newton was still pouting so, for one day only, Disneyland added a new attraction—The Sucking Pit of Despair.

Cam Newton: The Shipwrecked Showboater

Almost 112 million people viewed Super Bowl 50 and depending on when they tuned in and whether they stay tuned to the post-game interviews those viewers saw a young star too easily rattled and not equal to the moment.

During the always overboard pre-game hype, CBS cameras caught Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton on the field sporting warm-up gear that consisted of a black t-shirt emblazoned with a gold Superman logo and gold Under Armor® MVP cleats.

The Panthers were a 5+ point favorite to win yesterday’s Super Bowl.  I feel sorry for all the folks who placed bets in Vegas on Carolina.  The Panthers were pathetic.  Newton was deplorable.  The Denver defense hit Newton 13 times including six sacks.  He went 18 of 41 for 265 yards, no touchdowns, one interception, two fumbles and a passer rating of 55.4.

By the end of the third quarter the coddled, vulgarly overpaid Newton’s body language unequivocally told you this princeling was not accustomed to such forceful handling.  There were no jumping jacks or leaping chest bumps to rally his team.  No “dabbing” either.  Denver tugged on Superman’s cape and all that was left was a sulking, pouty, immature, petulant child who threw himself on the turf after Josh Norman was called for holding against DeMarcus Ware and again with 2:08 left in the game when Derek Wolfe tackled Cam in the endzone.  Newton screamed at the official demanding a penalty flag for a late hit but didn’t get one.  He rolled over and pounded the turf in a childish temper tantrum.

Oh, and let’s not forget the fumble he cowardly refused to try to recover.  Aqib Talib said, “He tapped out.  Yeah.  He didn’t want it.”

After the game, Cam Newton sat dejectedly in a post-game interview giving oh-so-short answers to rather soft questions and abruptly walked out after just three minutes.  For good or for ill, former Dallas Cowboys star Deion Sanders said of Newton’s press conference, “You are the face of our brand right now.  You can’t do that.  I understand the emotions of losing.  You can’t do that.  A Manning, a Brady, all of those guys who have been prototypical would never do that.  You can’t be dabbin’ smiling, styling and profiling when you win, so this is how you go out when you lose?”

I have taken some guff from a reader in the past for being so hard on Cam.  I am not just now scrutinizing him.  I attacked his antics, his narcissism and petulance here and here and finally here

Cam Newton’s arrogance has cheapened him.  His promise to be a role model is a complete, unadulterated mountain of manure and his teammates are circling the wagons to protect him.

Fans of the Panthers are disappointed that the Panthers lost.  Disappointment is part of sports.  Sadly though, Cam Newton single-handedly embarrassed the franchise and embarrassed the Panthers Nation.

Cam needs to grow up.  Whatever criticism comes his way is deserved.  Is the NFL proud they selected such a crybaby to be their MVP?  I think not.  Cam made a mockery of the league and a laughingstock of the Panthers.  It’s a pity.
