Nothin’s as simple as it used to be.

There was a time when Charles Krauthammer spoke, I listened. Not so much anymore.

In fact, it¹s difficult to know who to listen to these days. There are too many moving targets in this presidential campaign.

With all eyes focused on the Iowa caucuses, endorsements are at a premium. The esteemed “National Review” came out just last week with 30 conservative writers all against Donald Trump. In other news, popular conservative Sheriff Joe Arpaio endorsed Trump; Gov. Rick Perry endorsed Ted Cruz. And so it goes.

The burning question has been: “Who is ahead in the polls?” Whether they admit it or not, the media and the candidates have been and continue to be focused on the polls.

For months, the polls had shown Donald Trump ahead, followed by Ted Cruz, with Marco Rubio and Ben Carson jockeying for third place most of the time. Still in the mix are Jeb Bush, John Kasich, Rand Paul, and Chris Christie.

To make things interesting, as 2015 came to a close, however, Cruz had jumped ahead of Trump in Iowa, only to be knocked back to second place once again as Trump regained the first spot a couple of weeks ago.

Finally, voters are beginning to get serious about the candidates. The first real votes will be cast beginning with the caucuses in Iowa on Monday. Prior to real voting by real people, the campaign has just an entertaining show to watch.

The entertainment value is far from over, however, as Trump pulled out of participating in tonight’s Republican debate on Fox News.

What began as a feud between Trump and Fox News reporter Megyn Kelly, seems to have escalated now into a feud between Fox News and its president, Roger Ailes.

The stakes are high, and all bets are off as to who will come out on top on this one.

But it will be an entertaining evening to watch, both the formal debate, as well as Trump's side show. It's possible that Trump's performance would even become the main event.

Stay tuned.

While the campaigning has been fun to watch, I go back to something I wrote in Oct. 2013. http://mywcn.com/54608

Deci. Don't be naive about Trump. You investigate the donations from now through the next year to Liberty University and you'll discover why Jerry Falwell, Jr. endorsed Trump over others including Ted Cruz. Trump is using... More ›

How can you expect to clean up the corruption in D.C. (I realize this is a fantasy of mine) if you keep electing politicians? There are lots of things to not like about Trump but the main thing I like is that he has not had... More ›

Ken. Some food for thought when choosing between Cruz and Rubio. Megyn Kelly caught Rubio, using videos in his own words, lying about Cruz's 38 word amendment to the immigration bill being in support of amnesty. It was not.... More ›

Trump has been entertaining and I do like some of his programs. BUT, I am just a little sick and tired of his mean and nasty attempts to denigrate his competition. The last debate was much more informative and enjoyable... More ›

Mike. Another point from your text. You wrote, "He's more like Obama than anybody is willing to realize. He's just running with an 'R' by his name." I believe most will agree that the voters are looking for... More ›
