Jeb Bush Blames U.S. Policies for ISIS’ Rise

nytimes.com — SIMI VALLEY, Calif. - The war in Iraq, which dominated American presidential politics in 2004 and 2008, has returned as an issue in 2016. This time, the argument is not over whether the United States should have gone to war, but rather how the Obama administration sought to end it.

Moderator Questions Donald Trump on Women

nytimes.com — Donald J. Trump might have been girding for tough questions from his opponents, but that hammering from a Fox News moderator on his remarks about women - and whether that makes him particularly vulnerable to Democratic charges that the Republican Party is waging a war on women - goes to another reason establishment Republicans are worried about him as a candidate.

‘I Will Not Make the Pledge at This Time’

nytimes.com — This line from Donald J. Trump - voiced to boos from the crowd - captures in a second everything that makes the Republicans nervous about him. In refusing to stay out of the race if he loses his party's nomination, raising the possibility that he would run as a third-party candidate, Mr. Trump reminded the party just what a threat he is.
