"I'm Skeptical": George Will Questions What Blue State Ted Cruz Can Flip if He's the Republican Nominee

George Will on the electoral numbers and the challenge Republicans are facing---

"The question for Mr. Cruz for anyone seeking the Republican nomination is this -- given that 18 states and the District of Columbia with 242 electoral votes voted Democratic in 6 consecutive elections and if the Democratic nominee holds that base, he or she will spend the fall looking for 28 electoral votes and will find them. Given that, they have to ask the question, what red -- what blue state are you going to flip specifically?"

Florida Man Arrives By Taxi To Rob Bank: Police


Cab Driver: You owe me $25 for the cab fair
Man: Let me run into this bank, 'pay you when I get out


IBTimes
An apparently inebriated Florida man was arrested for trying to rob a Tallahassee bank and stiffing the cab driver who brought him to the scene, authorities said. Stanley Geddie, 46, arrived by taxi cab to rob Capital City Bank on Capital Circle Northwest in Tallahassee and allegedly demanded $100,000 from a bank manager.

Geddie allegedly told the bank manager he was carrying a .357 handgun and C4 plastic explosive and threatened to “blow this place up,” the Tallahassee Democrat reported. The man did not have any weapons in his possession when he was searched but was wearing two pair of pants. He later told investigators he would have removed the outer pair as a disguise, the newspaper said.

The bank manager said Geddie told him the bank was surrounded. After the demands were issued, the manager invited Geddie into his office and closed his door. Tellers then alerted police.

When police arrived, the cab driver informed officers Geddie was drunk and had not paid his $25.50 cab fare. Geddie reportedly told the driver he would pay the bill when he came back out. The officers entered the manager’s office to find Geddie sitting down and appearing “intoxicated and spaced out,” court records show. Officers used a stun gun on Geddie when refused to be arrested and had been warned he would be shot if he made any sudden movement.


 

Reuters Poll: Republicans See Obama as More Imminent Threat than Vladimir Putin


Threat to the United States
 Obama 34%, Putin 25%

newsmax
A third of Republicans believe President Barack Obama poses an imminent threat to the United States, outranking concerns about Russian President Vladimir Putin and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.  
A Reuters/Ipsos online poll this month asked to rate how much of a threat a list of  countries, organizations and individuals posed to the United States on a scale of 1 to 5, with one being no threat and 5 being an imminent threat.

The poll showed 34 percent of Republicans ranked Obama as an imminent threat, ahead of Putin (25 percent), who has been accused of aggression in the Ukraine, and Assad (23 percent). Western governments have alleged that Assad used chlorine gas and barrel bombs on his own citizens.

Given the level of polarization in American politics the results are not that surprising, said Barry Glassner, a sociologist and author of "The Culture of Fear: Why Americans are afraid of the wrong things."

"There tends to be a lot of demonizing of the person who is in the office," Glassner said, adding that "fear mongering" by the Republican and Democratic parties would be a mainstay of the U.S. 2016 presidential campaign.

Boehner: The Animosity Exhibited By This Administration Toward Netanyahu Is 'Reprehensible'

 These questions from CNN's Dana Bash sound like they came directly from the Obama White House

Dana Bash to Boehner:
-Can you blame the White House for not believing Netanyahu?
-A lot of people blame you for the deep rift between Israel and the United States


CNN.com
House Speaker John Boehner said his upcoming trip to Israel is no "victory lap" to celebrate Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's re-election -- and that it was planned months ago, before the Israeli election.

The Ohio Republican will travel to Israel this week, while Congress is on recess. He said his plans were made before the rift between Netanyahu and President Barack Obama over how to deal with Iran and Palestine burst into the open

Boehner defended Netanyahu from criticism from the Obama White House.

"I think the animosity exhibited by our administration toward the prime minister of Israel is reprehensible," Boehner said. "And I think that the pressure that they've put on him over the last four or five years have frankly pushed him to the point where he had to speak up."



 

Carly Fiorina: There's A 'Higher Than 90 Percent' Chance I'll Run For Pres in 2016


Fiorina ran for U.S. Senate in California in 2010 in what was a huge year for Republicans (+ 63 seats in House +6 in Senate) and was defeated by Democrat Barbara Boxer by 10 points. I am pretty confident in saying she will not be the Republican nominee in 2016.

Former business executive Carly Fiorina, who was Hewlett Packard CEO from 1999-2005 told Fox News Sunday there was a “higher than 90 percent” chance she would seek her party’s nomination. She said she is thinking of announcing in late April or early May, and at this point would be the only Republican woman in the race.

“We need to make sure we have the right team in place, that we have the right support, that we have the right financial resources lined up, just as all the other potential candidates are doing,” she said.

Fiorina said she may run “because I have a deep understanding of how the economy actually works, having started as a secretary and become the chief executive of the largest technology company in the world because I understand how the world works and know many of the world leaders on the stage today because I understand technology, a transformational tool, because I understand bureaucracies.”

Martin O’Malley on Challenging Clinton: ‘The Presidency Is Not Some Crown to Be Passed Between Two Families’

'Bout time somebody in the Dem party stood up to Hillary.
Former Gov. O'Malley says he's the one (not Clinton) with 'proven executive experience'



Former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley stepped up his criticism of Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton on Sunday, breaking with a previous strategy of ignoring questions about her.

Without ever directly attacking the former secretary of state during an appearance on ABC’s “This Week,” O’Malley portrayed himself as a new face for the Democratic Party and a progressive alternative, more willing to directly confront inequality and take on Wall Street.

“I think that our country always benefits from new leadership and new perspectives,” he said. “Let’s be honest here, the presidency of the United States is not some crown to be passed between two families. It is an awesome and sacred trust"
