How the presidential campaign looks through the eyes of a foreign journalist

Interesting read:  "WEST DES MOINES — Marco Rubio is talking about the decline of the American military. Matthias Kolb can hardly believe what he’s hearing."
On the trail, a lesson in God, guns and talk radio for a German reporter.

Lots of folks giving NH 2nd placer Kasich a 2nd look. So is he a popular governor?   Yes. Very.
More than six in 10--62 percent--said they approve of the job their governor is doing.

I honestly don't know much about his stance on most issues. I hadn't really taken him seriously thus far because he was doing so poorly he wasn't a factor. This was the beginning of my search for more info.

Hillary may have work to do with young voters but Trump might have an even tougher row to hoe to win the coveted Daily News endorsement

The editor of the Daily News should be ashamed of this cover. The NY newspapers are a joke. I've read them all for pretty much my entire life. The News is now a rag, and has been for quite a while now. The Post is a tabloid, and the Times is very hard to read because of their obvious liberal slant on so many things. You can't get news without the flavor and just facts anymore. The media whether it's print, radio, TV, and now digital just really doesn't want anybody forming their own conclusions.

On the right is Hillary Clinton concession. At left, Bernie Sanders crowd watching the same thing. The only time I heard reaction from Bernie's side is when Hillary said she had work to do, "especially with young people."

Not a fan of Trump or Sanders (or any of the candidates for that matter), but I hope the New Hampshire results really reflect just how people are totally tired with the way this country is managed. Unfortunately, we need some political outsiders to also get elected into Congress to really make a difference. I'm not convince this is, but it would be great if this was the start of something to get some sane people to represent us.

In boost to self-driving cars, U.S. tells Google computers can qualify as drivers

U.S. vehicle safety regulators have said the artificial intelligence system piloting a self-driving Google car could be considered the driver under federal law, a major step toward ultimately winning approval for autonomous vehicles on the roads.

The computer would have a better insurance premium than most drivers. +Dan McDermott​ maybe "I" is for insurance at Alphabet?

On a lighter (?) heavier note, here's that 600 pound escaped pig that ended up at a New Hampshire polling station

Not sure who he voted for. Here's more video of the pig literally biting cops in the ass:  http://bit.ly/1WcSz3P

Bernie Sanders is sporting Shure's VIP mic kit which has been used by the President for decades. It costs about $700 (and is currently sold out this primary season.)

The polling was right on the money this time. The only thing not factored in was the last minute meltdown of Marco Rubio when he was exposed as an empty suit in the last GOP debate. That boosted the others. A number of undecideds went for Sanders

The Nevada caucuses and South Carolina primaries are next between Feb. 20-27 followed by Super Tuesday March 1: http://bit.ly/1o1sPwB

HAHAHAHAHAHA
Let's dispel with the idea that Saturday night was anything short of terrible for the Florida senator.

Host of Google Plus Week
Introduction
I'm the host of the web TV show Google Plus Week and the publisher of three newspapers in Virginia: Warren County Report, Frederick County Report and The Lynchburg Times. They have a combined readership of about 70,000.

I also host daily News & Technology shows on Google+ and YouTube Live

If you are looking for information on my studio setup click here.

I am a former teacher and director at Randolph-Macon Academy where I oversaw the school's installation of internet connectivity in every dormitory room and classroom on campus in the mid 90s. We were the first school in the nation to do so. I also founded the school's low-cost internet service R-MA OnLine.

In 1993 I left R-MA for a year to work as a database programmer and write a computer game that sold over 110,000 copies.

I am a former radio talk show host who still fills in from time to time for the noon hour on WFTR and WZRV in Front Royal.

I am the son of a U.S. foreign service officer and was born in Okinawa, Japan. I have lived in more than 20 countries, mainly in Europe, Asia and Africa.

I am a classic example of a creative person with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. It is a curse I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy and the greatest gift I have ever received.
Bragging rights
I had a cameo as "the evil print reporter" in Real Housewives of Washington, D.C. I have lived all over the world from poverty-stricken countries in between civil wars to the fanciest neighborhood on Abbey Rd. in London. I prefer something in between.
