UPDATED: Money gets moved around
"The overwhelming amount of the money that we're raising is not going to Hillary (Clinton) to run for president. ... It's going to the congressmen and senators to try to take back Congress."
A funny bit, but a serious point
"You can absolutely get a gun if you have several felonies as long as you buy it on the Internet or at a gun show."
Some notes are missing
"Republicans control the U.S. Senate with 54 seats, but those 54 senators were elected by only two-thirds the number of voters who elected the Democrats. In the Senate, the majority party represents a minority of the people."
Fox News Channel
Donald Trump’s decision to skip the Fox News/Google debate in Des Moines "is near unprecedented."
Sometimes the best-known story lines are wrong
"In a period of roughly 72 hours, a small group of angry black students managed to force the resignation of the two highest ranking officials at that school."
Most of the failed co-ops didn't last five years.
Obamacare insurance cooperative failures "should be expected" because they're like any business, and "when you start businesses in America, at the fifth year, half of the businesses have closed."
Remember, there are 3 tickets out of Iowa
"Iowa's Republican caucus stopped mattering years ago. It in no way determines the party nominee."
Polling's tough but it's not this bad yet
Pollsters say "don't actually believe our own data" and Gallup stopped primary polling "because they don't trust their methodology."
Analysis is about where people bought guns, not if they bought legally
About "3 percent of murders and crimes are committed with guns from people who actually (legally) purchase those guns."
Still a question without an answer
"We sell 40 percent of our guns without a background check."
Polls show public interest holds steady
Says history suggests sports will "quickly subsume a lot of the attention span of the country" in the presidential primary.
Not her main job
When it comes to classified information at the State Department, Hillary Clinton’s "the decider."
No hard polling data for "every state"
"Any Republican that has led for two months and led every state has won the GOP nomination."
Not well grounded in data
"Almost 40 percent of all (undocumented) immigrants come by plane and they overstay their visas."
Budget snapshots miss a lot of the picture
Says "Bush Jr. handed Obama a $1.4 trillion deficit" and Obama "reduced Bush Jr.’s deficit to just $492 billion."
