Rand Paul

Announcement Schedule:

Christie: June 30
King, Kasich, Webb: Considering how late it is in June, probably early July
Walker: "Week of July 13"
Biden: By Aug. 1
Gilmore: He plans to participate in the Fox 'Forum' in August, so presumably early to mid july so pollsters start including him in time
Ehrlich: No idea. Seems to have lost all interest in running.

Someone actually has no interest in running?  For 2016 that's a rarity...

Another old white male!??!

More like an Indian-American.  Not to be confused with American Indian.  At this rate, the GOP may need a big tour bus to tote around all these clowns.

Good bounce for Jeb, but the question of the week is how long will it last?  My guess is not more than a week or 10 days at the most.  I can almost guarantee his bounce will be eroded by the 4th of July holiday unless he does some major campaigning and plays Mr. Nice Guy for a while even when it comes to Hillary.  If he starts getting too dirty too soon, he could be doomed.
5  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Do you think Joe Biden would get any votes out of pure sympathy? on: June 21, 2015, 02:54:59 pm
With the loss of his son Beau Biden and of course the lingering effects of the loss of his family several decades ago, do you think if the Vice President ran for President, he would get votes out of pure sympathy?

Furthermore, would that inflate his poll numbers for a while compared to where they would normally be?  Everyone knows he has very little chance against Hillary Clinton, but would the sympathy votes make it a closer race than it should be?

I am under the impression that he would get some sympathy votes, but that might last just as long as a post-debate bounce or something along those lines.

I feel like Hillary could have gone on stage, farted, and then left and those on the forum would hail it as the greatest speech of the campaign

It worked for Ted Cruz.

To be fair, isn't that what Ted Cruz does every time he opens his mouth?

Around 0230. More relevant to me is that my dad didn't immediately take mom to the hospital when she started having labor pains, but waiting for The Avengers to finish before taking us there.

Priorities, man.

Walker tells FOX he'll announce in about a month. He's also coming up here to Canada for a governors/premiers confab and meeting Harper.



I just hope he's not waiting too late.  I can appreciate that he wants to finish his job as governor with the budget, but I think hopping into the race a month before the first debate is a little risky.  Anyone else agree?

I rather enjoy my Windows 8.1.  I haven't had any problems with it and I've had the Windows 8/8.1 platform since August 2013, almost 2 years now.  In fact, I've had fewer problems with Windows 8 than I did with 7.  My mom has had trouble with the initial 8.1 upgrade basically slaughtering her computer forcing her to get a new one, so I know the problems it can cause, but I guess I've been very fortunate so far.

Is this like the NIT Men's Basketball Tournament?  A chance to play more ball, but in a tournament nobody cares about?

No, because I think he is smart enough to know that he has fumbled that ball long ago.  The country will not be receptive to a scandal-ridden governor from a state known for its corruption.  I think he's smart enough to know that ship has sailed.  Sadly, this is his likely his last chance and thus is doomed to fade from view in January 2018.  He has absolutely no chance in 2020.  Now, will his ego get in the way?  Maybe, but his intelligence hopefully will win out.

I'm one that likes to wait until the bugs are largely worked out before I buy an operating system.  Plus, I just bought a Windows 8 laptop right after Christmas so I don't need any new devices for quite a while.  I voted yes in the poll because I will be buying it eventually either out of will or out of no other option.
You don't need to buy it if you own Windows 8.

I'm sure eventually I'll have to buy a whole new device with the new OS on there.  Hopefully, that'll be a long while, but it is a probability.

Do you boys have Bloomberg on your radar screen?

Running as what?  Indy?  I've always thought you can never completely rule him out mainly because he has the funds to fully pay for his own campaign.  What brings you to invoke his name?

Quote
For Chris Christie, the final question on a potential 2016 bid is: "Do I want to do it?"

The New Jersey governor has said he'll decide whether to join the already-crowded field of candidates vying for the Republican nomination this month as New Jersey wraps up its legislative session. But he's still weighing what is in his heart.

"I go through all the different factors that I need to consider. And when I'm done, I check that off and I move to the next factor. And the factor I'm down to now, John, is do I want to do it? Do I want to do it? In my heart, is this something that I really, absolutely want to do?" he told "Face the Nation" host John Dickerson.


I feel he may actually sit this one out, I don't see a path forward for him to win the nomination unless his favorability and poll numbers go up.

He's buried himself too deep to be much of a factor, so he probably should sit this one out.  That said, this is his best shot.  His time will have passed if he doesn't give it a go this year.  I don't see him going anywhere in 2020.

The only thing Webb is methodically doing is contemplating how to be the most irrelevant he can be.

I could go for that.  Not a bad idea, Madam Secretary.

I had 0 for quite a long time, well over a year I think, until I got tangled up in BRTD's obsession with me.  Now, I have 97...  I'm trying to lay low for the next 2 1/2 months until they drop off...

Did I read correctly somewhere that Rick Perry just announced?  I could've sworn he was already in the race?

He just announced this morning.  Thread: http://uselectionatlas.org/FORUM/index.php?topic=213912.0

No, he wasn't already in the race.


I guess I wasn't seeing things, then.  Thanks for clearing it up.

They won't find anything in my car, so I say search to your heart's content.  I don't drink, so there'd be no risk of open containers and I don't do drugs, so there's no risk of contraband in my car.

24  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Will Rand Paul's statement about ISIS and GOP Hawks hurt him? on: May 30, 2015, 09:50:22 pm
He isn't wrong.

I don't disagree, but this is a very risky move in the primaries.  It could help him in the general, but he has to get past the primaries to get to the general.  I think this comment was ill timed.  The only saving grace potentially is that America's attention spans are razor thin and he can overcome this.  I voted yes in the poll because of it being too risky of a move no matter how true it is.  I'm still supporting him, though.
25  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: RIP Beau Biden on: May 30, 2015, 09:44:32 pm
So sad.  I didn't even know he was sick.  I've always liked the Biden family and I'm praying for the Vice President's family.
