Carr: Jeb Bush’s chances of winning GOP nod — a million to Juan.

In 2004, the area was hit hard by Hurricane Charley and, through Bush’s leadership, they were able to unite school facilities and resources to provide classes for students from both schools.* The news isn’t all bad for Jeb Bush: he picked up a notable endorsement yesterday from New Hampshire’s Judd Gregg, a former two-term senator and two-term governor from the Granite State. * Hillary Clinton will call today for equal treatment in sentencing for those convicted of using crack and powder cocaine.“It’s not on life support,” Bush told reporters Thursday, the day after his widely panned debate performance raised questions about the state of his campaign.Peggy Noonan says it’s hard to see how the Jeb Bush campaign can work. “By hard I mean, for me, impossible,” says our columnist. “It‘s widely believed among high Jeb supporters” that Donald Trump “has kept Mr.

It’s long been a priority for criminal-justice reform advocates. * The editorial board of the New York Times is urging Chris Christie to end his presidential campaign. The debate, coming in the wake of campaign cutbacks and other stumbles, led to pundit speculation that Bush may not be able to survive the race much longer — speculation the former Florida governor quickly shot down. The good news is, Juan is finally going to have time for all those “really cool things” he said last weekend he could be doing if he wasn’t in the fight. The New Jersey governor responded soon after that he’s “not going anywhere.” * Bernie Sanders has been eager to draw distinctions between his record and Hillary Clinton’s on LGBT rights, but there were a couple of good reports this week on Sanders “evolving” over time on marriage equality, too. * Speaking of the Vermont senator, a day after Clinton said she has concerns about capital punishment, though she doesn’t support ending it altogether, Sanders said on the Senate floor yesterday, “I believe it is time for the United States of America to join almost every other Western, industrialized country on Earth in saying no to the death penalty.” * In North Carolina, PPP shows a competitive gubernatorial race taking shape, with state Attorney General Roy Cooper (D) actually leading incumbent Gov.

The home state swing-through comes after what’s been largely considered a poor performance at the most recent GOP debate, in which Bush and one-time protegé Senator Marco Rubio traded blows over the latter’s Senate attendance.

Richard Burr (R) by only four points, 43% to 39%. * And in Florida’s competitive Democratic Senate primary, much of the Democratic establishment is rallying behind Rep. Among them: his unpopular last name, his deep ties to the unpopular party establishment, his unpopular desire to let illegal immigrants become legal residents, and his feeble replies to Donald Trump’s merciless emasculation effort. “It’s like the difference between a movie star that is handsome and flamboyant, and a really good actor who is — not,” Garry Phillips, the Republican chairman in Tennessee’s Henry County, said in an interview.

He never had an obvious broad base within the party.” And he “was playing from an old playbook—he means to show people his heart, hopes to run joyously. An hour before lunch — a free lunch, by the way — his campaign tweeted out a reminder: They say there’s no such thing as bad publicity, but don’t tell that to Juan. But it’s 2015, we’re in crisis; they don’t care about your heart and joy, they care about your brains, guts and toughness.” Kimberley Strassel writes that on debate night, “An outsider race gave way to an insider breakout. Three insiders, to be precise: Marco Rubio, Chris Christie and Ted Cruz.” A big reason why is that Republican voters want “a great communicator, an effective advocate for their cause. They haven’t had one since Reagan, and the Bushes and McCains and Romneys have highlighted how big a problem that is.” “Hillary Clinton told the Boston Globe the other day that she’d give President Obama ‘an A’ grade for his handling of the economy,” notes a Journal editorial.

With the I-95 bridge to Kittery in the background, picturesque tugboats tooted their horns, trying to keep Jeb’s sparse crowd inside awake as they listened to another of Jeb’s droning vintage whines: He had just been endorsed by Judd Gregg, who last faced the voters in 2004, two years after Juan’s last election, in 2002. Obama’s eco-abuses, the legal reckoning now at hand is the most important,” says the editorial, because the so-called Clean Power Plan “will undermine growth, consumer incomes and U.S. competitiveness in ways that will be difficult for the next President to reverse.” “The Chinese Communist Party’s decision Thursday to end its one-child policy is a landmark that ends one of the worst government intrusions on human freedom in world history,” says the Journal. “But this is no epiphany about individual choice. Chinese leaders are acknowledging, albeit belatedly, that they face a looming demographic crisis from a rapidly aging population.”…Nicholas Eberstadt adds that China’s dictatorship “has no plans to relinquish authority over its subjects’ birth patterns; rather, Beijing has simply changed the ration.

Now two children per family will be permitted.” Robert Woodson defends Paul Ryan and the late Jack Kemp in our pages from a recent attack by commentator Ann Coulter. He dismissed Bush with a kind of pitying contempt, saying Bush was only making the argument because someone had told him it might help him in the polls. “Rubio had a great retort, and Jeb just kind of backed off. Woodson calls the political pundit “a right-wing Al Sharpton” who “is more interested in delivering flamboyant attacks than in offering fact-based analysis.” There is not a smoke monster rampaging through the supply room, especially not a mean-tempered smoke monster who has somehow gotten control of all our donor records and snaps at us whenever we try to get closer.

Dave is not wounded, especially not in the carotid, and we definitely have not needed to make a makeshift tourniquet for Dave, and that is not why we are so low on duct tape. His elevator pitch — experienced office-holder who gets things done — is a poor fit for an election year in which voters appear to prefer flame-throwing outsiders. “I think he’s talking to an uninformed electorate that does not understand the complexities of governing,” said Phillips. “The electorate is angry, and it’s not sure what it’s angry about.” And then there is that surname. “For good or for bad, people just don’t want to see another Bush in office,” said Valerie Earnshaw, the Republican chairwoman in Bedford, N.H. “I don’t think it’s anything personal. A CBS staffer tweeted out: “250+ at Jeb event … Bigger crowd than when Kasich was here.” Now that’s pretty funny, as Juan would say, when a Bush is reduced to bragging about outdrawing a clown like Kasich. We did not discover that if you placed all the Jeb(!) posters end to end they created an ominous rune that summoned a Great Beast from the Veldt Beyond Worlds, and we have not had to devote any time or resources to fighting anything that came out of that portal, not that that portal exists, or that anything came out of it, because that definitely did not happen. One by one, Trump has exposed Bush’s weak spots: his brother’s record, his reliance on wealthy donors, his connection to failed Wall St. firm Lehman Bros.

Every Bush response has fallen flat. “The politics have changed, the campaigning has changed, the way you grab attention has changed,” said Watkins. “I think that’s something that Jeb may not necessarily embrace.” Last year, Bush said he would only run if he could do it “joyfully.” He is betraying no joy at all any more. He became downright whiny on Saturday, complaining about having to spend his time arguing with candidates he said would “get nothing done.” “I’ve got a lot of really cool things I could do other than sit around, being miserable, listening to people demonize me and me feeling compelled to demonize them,” he said. “That is a joke. WE ARE VERY ENERGETIC AND NOT PANICKED AT ALL AND THERE ISN’T A SHADOW-THING IN THE BATHROOM THAT WE CAN’T PLACATE NOT EVEN BY SACRIFICING UNENTHUSIASTIC DONORS TO IT ESPECIALLY NOT THAT. If a green slime-beast with hideous reptile jaws whom we have nicknamed Rudy bursts out of the shredder and tells you that the campaign is terminal, you should not believe it, but that definitely will not happen because there is no Rudy.
