What We’re Reading March 14, 2015
We hope you’re having a great day wherever you are and that the news we dig up for you this morning helps you navigate the day more efficiently!
It’s a busy world out there, and you don’t have a ton of free time to be doing Internet searches for the most important items of the day… lucky for you, we do. We drink gallons of coffee in an effort to stay awake long enough to scour the far reaches of the world wide web in an effort to bring you the most important, useful and useless information every single day.
So without further ado, here’s what we’re reading Saturday, March 14, 2015.
In case you were wondering… the Obama administration doesn’t trust Hillary Clinton.
Unbelievably, Hillary Clinton still has the best poll numbers of all probable 2016 candidates with a 50% favorability rating (compared to a 39% unfavorable rating). While these may seem like good numbers, in actuality Clinton’s poll numbers have been plummeting of late!
Jonah Goldberg at the National Review Online reminds the GOP that Jeb Bush is the only Republican who could turn Hillary Clinton’s last name into an asset. Meaning… the GOP Must Not nominate Jeb!
Governor Chris Christie (R-NJ) continues to push his campaign for President forward even though many on the GOP were under the impression that the New Jersey “tough guy” was on his way out.
Vladimir Putin may be in a bit of trouble – observers of Russian politics have noticed some disturbing trends for the Russian autocrat.
What will the Electoral College end up looking like when 2016 is all said and done?
Canada and Great Britain are the foreign nations viewed most favorably by Americans while Iran and North Korea are viewed most unfavorably.
Finally! Some brave souls on the left are finally standing up to the new liberal philosophy that seeks to shut down anyone who disagrees with them.
When the mainstream population of a student body identifies as liberal, the differences between students on the left become far more complex. But in order to mitigate the pain and confusion that often results from campus disagreements, we should recognize that arguments between mainstream left and radical left students do not represent two sides of one political coin. Instead, groups aren’t engaging with each other at all, employing different terminology and societal views to inform their opinions. Understanding political discourse on campus should start from here.
