|New Hampshire voting results in the year of the Fire Monkey|
I thought that Jeb! would do well in New Hampshire. It’s his turf. A fourth or fifth place win for the momma’s boy is a genuine victory. I don’t think that anyone believes that he’d get the Republican nomination, but he’ll continue to be a political gadfly. Kasich did well in NH, and it remains to be seen whether or not he can build further momentum. Rubio finished fifth or sixth, in a tie with Jeb! Cruz held his own, but nobody expected to do well in NH. He got his win in Ohio. Christie, Fiorina, Carson and Glimore (remind me who Gilmore is) have a very difficult road ahead for the next few weeks.
Trump is still the man to beat and I think that he will build momentum as the Republican Party continues to hate him.
(Fox News) President Obama sent Congress on Tuesday his eighth and final budget, proposing to spend a record $4.1 trillion on a number of initiatives. They include launching a new war on cancer, combating global warming and fighting growing threats from ISIS terrorists.
The new spending plan, for the budget year that begins Oct. 1 — just 3 1/2 months before he leaves office — is facing heavy fire from Republicans who hope to capture the White House. The proposal had dim prospects of winning approval in a Republican-controlled Congress.
In all, Obama’s budget would increase taxes by $2.6 trillion over the coming decade, nearly double the $1.4 trillion in new taxes Obama sought and failed to achieve in last year’s budget
