I remember reading long ago Lt Gen McMasters when he was a major. What I read was about what he did in Desert Storm. He had very interesting insights into military matters then. The last I heard of him was probably around 1998, when he was a Lt Col. He is now head of Training Doctrine and Command (TRADOC) when seeks to plot the needs and strategy of future wars.

(Gen Fred Franks ran TRADOC after Desert Storm. He commanded the Ground Forces in Desert Storm. Interestingly, he lost a leg below the knee in Vietnam, and was eventually allowed to return to duty then, an unheard of event. Worth reading his book on Desert Storm done with Tom Clancy.)

See, I do know a bit about a bit of different things..... cheesy

Sorry that I am not much on the Investment Side. But this makes sense.  Yes Doug, my sick humor again.

Here is an image of the Reuters Interactive Poll. Notice a couple of things.

Carson is in a downward trend.
Fiorina is a downward trend as well, since Sep 28.
Jeb is bouncing off a bottom.
Trump took a dive after the debate, but appears to be recovering some of the losses
Rubio appears to have gained support after the debate, but he is now wavering up and down off the high.
Cruz is bouncing along his bottom, not showing any real recent change.

Go to the website for a real look.

Here is the website interactive polling cite. It is using a 5 day rolling average. Trump is kicking ass on this one.!response/TR130/type/smallest/filters/PARTY_ID_:2/dates/20150808-20151002/collapsed/false

Here is the most recent Gravis Poll coming out

Both polls are showing Trump in the 30's.

Trump's money allows him to jet anywhere he wants, anytime he wants, a luxury people like Walker, Pawlenty, santorum don't have.  Mostly, though, he has used the threat of using his money to give him credibility.  So far, it was his name, reputation, skills and message that he used to make the entry that an average outsider could never make.

The roadmap pp points to will be crucial soon and they need to be planning for it now.  It will take big money to have a serious presence everywhere at once when we get to the primaries.  All the low drawing candidates will have to decide whether to spend their donors' last dollar, take on bad debt and lose, or drop out sooner.  That is when this thins out quickly and the real fight for the nomination begins.

I think both Trump and Bush will leave this race for other reasons.  Bush because he is just not catching on.  Trump will leave the race IF he sees his numbers are about to slide.  Easy exit, Trump says, 'I made my point, now others can do it.  I have a business to run.'

The money concern for Trump is different.  I doubt he plans to spend a billion of his own money.  I also doubt that he can.  He is building up his brand as long as he is seen as a winner.  He gives that away if he fights to the end while losing.  Also, WAAAAY too much ego there to leave seen as a loser.  Instead, his exit will come as a surprise.  He must see this campaign as a distraction costing him a fortune in terms of being away from his business, and worth nothing if it isn't building his brand any further.

Also possible with Trump is that he wanted to prove he could win the election.  He may not really want the day to day duties AND SCRUTINY of the job.  He has a pretty good life already!

The latest poll pp shows puts Rubio in first of the so-called politicians which I think is a great position for him - even at 8%.  It is the first time I've seen Fiorina fall back.  I don't expect Carson to hold up as we get closer. I don't know what his end game is, maybe just step up his game and win!

Might as well add this to the mix. Last quarter, Paul raised $2.5m. Not good.

Now this...................does the Admin want to go to war with Russia? How do we protect the Syrian rebels? These are the same rebels who have also used NBC weapons against the Syrian population. Why are they any better than anyone else?

What did we learn when we took Saddam out? It let every single group in Irag go after each other. And it took years to subdue, but the second we left, it all unraveled. Now we want to do the same with Assad in Syria?

If we go in to fight, we go in against ISIS only. We  go to take them out, and we use all force possible. Jacksonian warfare. If not that, we stay the hell out.

(Caveat: I first supported the idea of taking out Saddam, but now I realize how stupid it was.)
