    MEDIA BUZZ
    Panic city: The GOP's pipsqueak 'revolt' against Donald Trump

    Another day, another GOP panic.

    The media underestimated Donald Trump from day one. The Republican power brokers underestimated Donald Trump from day one. And now journalists are quoting GOP hotshots as suddenly scared about what has been obvious for months: that Trump is in a strong position to seize their nomination.

    After various stages of grief and denial, the noise from the “establishment”—or what remains of it, in this Super PAC era—is growing louder.

    The New York Times is the latest to sound the alarm:

    “Irritation is giving way to panic as it becomes increasingly plausible that Mr. Trump could be the party’s standard-bearer and imperil the careers of other Republicans.”

    Which is pretty much the same P-word that the Washington Post used on Nov. 12:

    “Less than three months before the kickoff Iowa caucuses, there is growing anxiety bordering on panic among Republican elites about the dominance and durability of Donald Trump and Ben Carson and widespread bewilderment over how to defeat them.”

    Is there something stronger than panic? Because we seem to be careening there.

    And remember the pundits who said that Trump’s insistence that thousands of Muslims in New Jersey celebrated on 9/11, and his mocking of a reporter, would hurt him? Instead, he’s going up in the polls. Trump leads with 27 percent in the new Quinnipiac survey, trailed by Marco Rubio (17), Ted Cruz (16), and the sliding Ben Carson (16).

    The GOP-in-revolt stories lead to endless speculation about a brokered convention or money men financing a stop-Trump venture, which is fun but ultimately pointless. One such anti-Trump outfit has gained little traction after being touted in the Wall Street Journal.

    The notion that some aerial assault is going to badly wound Trump looks like a fantasy. According to NBC’s estimates, including Super PACs, Jeb Bush has spent $28.9 million on advertising—and his numbers have not budged at all. Marco Rubio has spent $10.6 million. John Kasich has spent $6.4 million, some of it on spots attacking Trump.

    And The Donald has spent a grand total of $217,000, all on radio. Trump hasn’t aired a single TV ad. He gets all the free media he needs.

    I’ve critiqued presidential ads in five campaigns, and I’ve never seen a cycle where they mattered less. With so many candidates and so many PACs and so many online videos, it just all seems like noise. That could change when the field winnows, but I don’t think you stop Donald Trump by airing bad things about him. The media say plenty of bad things about him, and it invariably ends up helping him.

    Some are adjusting to the new era. In a Robert Costa scoop, the Post obtained a memo from the director of the National Republican Senatorial Campaign urging candidates to embrace the best parts of Trump’s “anti-Washington populist agenda,” but avoid saying “wacky things about women.” The memo suggests Trumpism without Trump, calling him “a misguided missile” who “is subject to farcical fits.”

    The Times’ Jonathan Martin is savvy enough to recognize that the purported revolt lacks any real firepower: “In a party that lacks a true leader or anything in the way of consensus — and with the combative Mr. Trump certain to scorch anyone who takes him on — a fierce dispute has arisen about what can be done to stop his candidacy and whether anyone should even try.

    “That has led to a standoff of sorts: Almost everyone in the party’s upper echelons agrees something must be done, and almost no one is willing to do it.”

    The story quotes some party bigwigs on the record as saying a Trump nomination could endanger some GOP members of Congress. Ohio Republican Chairman Matt Borges says: “If he carries this message into the general election in Ohio, we’ll hand this election to Hillary Clinton — and then try to salvage the rest of the ticket.” So that’s what is really fueling the panic.

    Trump’s detractors point to his high negatives, especially among minorities. But in such a crazy year, and with Trump taking moderate positions on Medicare, Social Security and taxing hedge-fund guys, who knows what would happen in a fall election? The Q poll gives Hillary a 6-point lead over The Donald, hardly a blowout.

    But first he’s got to win the nomination. And that may well turn on his own performance and his ability to get his supporters to the polls, not on a party revolt that no one wants to lead or has the clout to pull off.

    Column Ted Cruz taps into disaffected conservatives' anger in a bold play that just might work (opinion)

    l year long, smart Republicans have been whispering: Keep a close eye on Ted Cruz. He's got a message that appeals to the party's most conservative voters. He's running a good campaign, well-organized and well-funded. He's going to be a finalist — and he might just win the nomination.

    Well, what do you know: Right on schedule, as voters in Iowa settle on their favorites, Cruz's fortunes are looking up.

    Beyond kind words [about Donald Trump], Cruz has tried to make himself palatable to the "Make America great again" crowd by veering to the populist right.

    Keller @ Large: Jeb Bush On Terror And Trump

    BOSTON (CBS) — Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush floated a theory that Donald Trump’s goal is to disrupt the Republican Party and ensure a Hilary Clinton win in 2016.

    “I don’t know how else to describe it,” Bush said. “He’s motivated for some reason, but he’s not motivated to win the presidency.”

    Bush sat down with WBZ political analyst Jon Keller to discuss his campaign, the threat of terrorism, and, of course, Trump. Bush said it’s important to remember that Trump was a Democrat not long ago, and that he has a history of rubbing elbows with Hillary Clinton. He criticized Trump’s suggested policies as “unserious.”

    “He would make it impossible for a Republican to win if he continues down this path,” Bush said of Trump. “Look, he’s not a serious person, he’s not a serious candidate. We’re living in serious times and his proposals are completely unserious.”

    Keller asked Bush what he would do if he was in office right now to protect America against potential homegrown terrorists. Bush said communication between agencies needed to be improved.

    “The FBI needs to transform itself culturally to make sure the eyes and ears of law enforcement, after being trained, can help us identify people,” said Bush.

    Ben Carson 'Out of Here' If Republican Leaders Engage in Backroom Deals

    Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson doubled down today on his threat to leave the party if GOP leaders try to manipulate the nomination process with "back room deals."

    Carson said today on ABC's "This Week" he entered the race because he heard from voters who were frustrated by "back room deals of subterfuge and dishonesty." He said he would be "out of here" if those types of deals remained.

    Carson said he has spoken to Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus since a closed-door meeting of party leaders in Washington, D.C., last week.

    “He told me those are team meetings and they have them all the time and that this was no different than all the others," Carson told George Stephanopoulos. "But the jury's out. We will certainly be keeping a close eye on things."

    The retired neurosurgeon has said he would not consider running as an Independent. When asked if that means he would drop out of the race for the Republican nomination, Carson told ABC News on Friday he would "leave that up to you to speculate."

    “I have no intention of running as an Independent, but I certainly don’t want to be part of corruption,” Carson said.

    Here Are Krauthammer's Winners and Losers from the GOP Debate

    Charles Krauthammer joined “The O’Reilly Factor” tonight to react to the year’s fifth GOP debate, held in Las Vegas.

    His impressions?

    “There was no winner,” Krauthammer said, in agreement with Bill O’Reilly.

    Krauthammer laid out who he thought were “[not] winners, but people who distinguished themselves” – and, of course, the “losers.”

    Among those that impressed Krauthammer were Sen. Rand Paul, Gov. Chris Christie and Carly Fiorina.

    Christie, for example, “had excellent moments,” he said.

    “He essentially turns and he addresses the audience – not the moderators, not the pundits, but the audience – in a way that I thought was connecting.”

    Krauthammer said he thought Fiorina used her little speaking time “extremely well,” particularly in explaining how she would deal with Russia.

    “Otherwise, I thought there were no people who distinguished themselves,” he concluded. “Carson, I thought was sort of out of it, Kasich as well.”

    Krauthammer also weighed in on Jeb Bush’s attack on Donald Trump tonight, saying that it didn’t “move the needle one bit.”

    Watch his remarks on “The Factor," above, and more sharp debate analysis, below.
