Jeb sounded reluctant for months before he announced his candidacy.. and he still seems out of place.. and his body language is mostly tense and often just says “I don’t want to be here”….
All the talk about W and Iraq.. and now also Wolfowitz.. is not helping either..
A strange campaign so far…
Des Moines, Iowa (CNN)Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush’s brother’s legacy in the Iraq War continued to haunt his candidacy Friday, when he faced questions from an audience at the Iowa State Fair about his relationship to the policies of President George W. Bush.
One of the fair-goers asked the Republican presidential candidate during his appearance on the Des Moines Register Soapbox whether he was being advised by Paul Wolfowitz, George W. Bush’s deputy secretary of defense and the architect of his Iraq War policy. (..)
“Paul Wolfowitz is providing some advice,” Bush said. “I get most of my advice from a team that we have in Miami, Florida. Young people that are going to be … they’re not assigned, have experience either in Congress or the previous administration.”
There is a gradual change of style happening.. and who knows after another two months.. this is very unpredictable… speech available from the link below..
Donald Trump, a candidate for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, spoke to supporters at a rally at Winnacunnet High School in Hampton, New Hampshire.
This thing is consuming her campaign.. if there’s nothing there.. it has been handled very badly by Hillary.. even if the attacks are politically motivated..
Late last month, Hillary Rodham Clinton stood before a line of television cameras at a rural Iowa campaign stop to deny reports that she had sent sensitive information over her private e-mail system.
(..) The next week, however, law enforcement officials became interested, and the campaign’s apparent lack of concern began to turn into a sense of anxiety.
“They’re worried about it,” said a longtime Clinton adviser and confidant who agreed to discuss the mood of the campaign team only on the condition of anonymity. “They don’t know where it goes. That’s the problem.”
It’s a long way to go, but he’s still growing!

Good move by Schumer..
Kerry had the best intentions but he’s just not good enough at negotiations.. the result was not good enough..
WASHINGTON — Senator Chuck Schumer, the most influential Jewish voice in Congress, said Thursday night that he would oppose President Obama’s deal to limit Iran’s nuclear program.
“Advocates on both sides have strong cases for their point of view that cannot simply be dismissed,” Mr. Schumer, Democrat of New York, said in a lengthy statement. “This has made evaluating the agreement a difficult and deliberate endeavor, and after deep study, careful thought and considerable soul-searching, I have decided I must oppose the agreement and will vote yes on a motion of disapproval.”
(..) Mr. Schumer said that the inspection regime in the first 10 years of the agreement would be too weak, and that provisions to reimpose sanctions if Iran cheated were too onerous. He said his most serious concerns were with the freedom that Iran would have after 10 years to quickly build a nuclear weapon.
“To me, after 10 years, if Iran is the same nation as it is today, we will be worse off with this agreement than without it,” he said.
For a complete novice, in a hostile environment, he did ok..
“From the first moment of Thursday night’s Republican presidential debate, Donald Trump showed that he won’t be playing by anybody’s rules but his own,” the Washington Post reports.
“He refused to say he would support the eventual Republican nominee, bragging about the ‘leverage’ he gains by threatening to run as an independent. He joked about Rosie O’Donnell. He said he would be justified in being mean to Fox News host Megyn Kelly. And he described America’s political leaders as ‘stupid.’
“Trump’s performance under the bright lights here at the Quicken Loans Arena revealed a politically raw novice but also a natural contender whose skills as a high-rolling business magnate and reality television star prepared him for the moment.”
