I’m surprised he actually waited until after Christmas, but so be it. Former New York Governor George Pataki has ended his 2016 presidential election bid and will no longer seek the Republican nomination. Pataki was never able to garner any real support and the reasoning for his candidacy escaped even the most seasoned of political analysts.

Report from NBC News:

Former New York Gov. George Pataki announced he is ending his 2016 presidential campaign in a message to GOP voters that aired on NBC News affiliates in the early primary states of New Hampshire, Iowa and South Carolina.

“While tonight is the end of my journey for the White House as I suspend my campaign for president, I am confident we can elect the right person,” Pataki said. “Someone who will bring us together and who understands that politicians, including the president, must be the people’s servant and not their master.”

Pataki recounted his record as governor and invoked his experiences on 9/11, saying “if we’re truly going to make America great again, we need to elect a president who will do three things — confront and defeat radical Islam, shrink the size and power of Washington and unite us again in our belief in this great country.”

Pataki didn’t have any real support for candidates to fight over but it does indicate a consolidation of the field. The numbers are dwindling on the Republican side though several stragglers still remain. The next debate will see a tighter limit on the main debate stage and could push the number down to just six candidates in primetime on January 14.

  1. Another Neocon down the drain…more must follow.

    And why hasn’t the FBI already arrested Hillary for her felonious usage of a personal private e-mail server (which she ERASED) while US Secretary of State?

    Also, why hasn’t the FBI launched an investigation of the phony Clinton Foundation — which has little to do with charity, and much to do with enriching the Clintons via multi-million dollar “donations” by Foreigners?!

    Has the FBI been so compromised by Obama, that they’ve become the least trustworthy federal agency in USA?

    • How do you figure Pataki is a Neocon??

      We have received several complaints about your other two posts here, which are just amplifications of this post. They were totally irrelevant to this topic, unnecessarily (neurotically) hostile, and offensive. But most of all, redundant. You post variations on the same old fact-devoid. hate-filled attacks on Hillary–which add nothing at all to our discussion. Come up with something new, and we’ll read it.

  2. Happy New Year to ALL freedom-loving people world wide!

    May 2016 be the year that sees Patriots saving our Freedoms — and dictatorial scum like Hillary and Obama placed behind bars, where such slugs belong!

  3. 2016 must be the Year of Freedom and Justice for All Americans — and
    Jail-time for the criminals in office and the wannabe ones!

    Why
    hasn’t the FBI already arrested Hillary for her felonious usage of a
    personal private e-mail server (which she ERASED) while US Secretary of
    State?

    Also, why hasn’t the FBI launched an investigation of the
    phony Clinton Foundation — which has little to do with charity, and
    much to do with enriching the Clintons via multi-million dollar
    “donations” by Foreigners?!

    Has the FBI been so compromised by Obama, that they’ve become the least trustworthy federal agency in USA?

    How
    much power do the Clintons’ still have over our federal government,
    that even the FBI is kowtowing to them — and allowing Hillary to walk
    free — because they fear another Clinton will get to rule us
    again…?!

    Here is a direct message to the FBI Top Echelon — you are scum!

    Why?
    Because instead of upholding a neutral ground whereby all get
    investigated and arrested according to criminal activity on equal basis
    — you have become a liberal politicized agency that now targets only
    patriots, and lets criminals like Hillary off the hook! You are betting
    that another anti-American scumbag, Hillary will win, so, you stand by
    her!

    When she loses, and Hillary will — or our Free Republic
    goes to Hell — Dear FBI Director, and your Obama apparatchiks, you
    will all go to Jail, where such scum like you belongs!

    Last
    chance for you — Dear FBI Director, James Comey — to come clean and
    save your politicalbskin. Arrest Hillary now — or face jail for
    failing to do your duty at a later date!

    The choice is yours —
    and, yes, your agency reads all posts posted everywhere…so there is
    no excuse Dear FBI Director, James Comey, for you to fail in this!!!

  4. What a shocker, someone polling around 0% dropped out. Wonder how the debates would be organized now that there are 11 candidates.

    • Does Gilmore even count, he is not even included in most polls and is just one of the many running for the spot (even though they don’t stand a chance).

  5. Last week, Hillary said that ISIS is using Donald Trump video in its self-promotions. Now, this week, such video has been found.

    Question is:
    –did she misspeak, meaning ISIS is using it in other media?
    –did she just guess that they were using him in video? OR–
    –did she have classified information that she exposed?

    • You are so correct about Hillary egging on ISIS to use Trump’s video — which they now do!

      Another reason why Hillary must be arrested by the FBI today — or has the FBI become another extension of Obama trying to destroy the USA!?!

      The FBI raids and arrests regular folks on a daily basis.
      What makes the FBI suspect of dereliction of duty is their abstinence to raid Hillary’s campaign offices and the Clinton Foundation (which is
      suspected of funneling tens of millions of dollars from Foreigners to
      her campaign) and not arrest Hillary over her exclusive illegal usage of
      a private e-mail server while Sec of State, and then erasing all these
      e-mails.
      The inequality whereby the FBI arrests hundreds of regular
      folks each day, while beeing hands-off BIG SHOTS — like the Clintons
      — is what makes the FBI look like an activist body that stands by this
      pernicious mantra: “Some are more equal than others.”
