New York Times Endorses Clinton

The New York Times editorial board endorses Hillary Clinton for the Democratic Nomination. The board announced their decision on January, 30, just two days before the Iowa caucus.

 “Hillary Clinton would be the first woman nominated by a major party. She served as a senator from a major state (New York) and as secretary of state — not to mention her experience on the national stage as first lady with her brilliant and flawed husband, President Bill Clinton. The Times editorial board has endorsed her three times for federal office — twice for Senate and once in the 2008 Democratic presidential primary — and is doing so again with confidence and enthusiasm.”

And the nonsense to me is, half the people that have built his buildings were immigrants, slaves basically. Wether they were official or not, it makes no sense.”

“Hillary Clinton – don’t like her. She has a strong view on working hard, but not working easy. You know what I mean?”

“Bernie has absolutely a good idea in mind, he is actually thinking for a lot of people. And he is very strong in groundbreaking work, which I like.”

Cruz Attacks Trump’s “New York Values”

A new Ted Cruz ad attacks Donald Trump for his “New York Values.” The commercial was released by Cruz himself (and not his PAC) and is aimed at voters in the upcoming Iowa caucus.

The ad paints Trump as pro-choice and as feeling superior to the people of Iowa.

“I lived in New York City in Manhattan all my life, okay, so, you know, my views are a little bit different than if I lived in Iowa.”
