McGovern never became president, and it's a darn good thing for America.  His extreme anti-war views, support of abortion, and advocacy of bad science would have been disastrous for our country if he'd made it to the White House.  On the other hand, you have a moderate Republican who supported most of the New Deal, helped save the world from Nazi tyranny, fought for civil rights, and stood strong against the Soviet Union.

Needless to say, Ike wins by lightyears.

McGovern's moderate views on abortion in 72 would disqualify him from being on a Democratic ticket today. And "advocacy of bad science"??

Although everyone thinks saturated fat causes heart disease and obesity, the scientific evidence supporting that is outdated, and flimsy at best.  McGovern chaired the committee that published the federal government's low-fat diet recommendations, causing people to eat more processed sugars and artificial trans fats.  Simply put, people like him are responsible for the ever-increasing levels of obesity in this country, as well as countless deaths and/or impairments from heart disease, diabetes, and other diseases.

Lol

The Democrats would be wise to nominate Milton Wolf. After all, they nominated a crazy white nationalist for Senate in Tennessee back in 2012. Of course, this isn't a primary so they can't pin it on the voters, but it would be great none the less Tongue.

They should nominate a some dude named Pat Roberts.

it's amazing how easily the war machine can be fired up.  every news affiliate is running stories "ISIS recruiting Americans and smuggling across Mexican border?  details at 7"  this after Iraq-2003 became the most unpopular war in the history of post-industrial revolution imperial society.  it helps that it's a Democrat, otherwise liberals would be asking the more uncomfortable questions, while Republicans are only capable of thinking of it as a "bad investment"

Indeed, beyond which, this isn't a case like Rwanda where strategically deploying a few troops in select locations would quickly halt (or in this case prevent) genocide.  If we go in, we'll have just deliberately stepped on a bear trap and won't be getting out for quite some time.  Apparently, no one learned anything from Iraq Sad

The thing that has always amazed me is how a lot of people in places like Topeka, Reno, or Panama City think that terrorists are going to attack *their* hometown.  As if Al-Qaeda's top target is Panama City Tongue lol

Ugh. Every little thing.
Ha, the ADL. They really never miss the slightest opportunity, do they?
It's almost like you two didn't even read the article and just wanted to be offended by them being offended.  Weird.
You don't have to read the article; the ADL does get offended by everything, and instead of blaming Biden for this non-issue to begin with, they blame everyone else. Why? Because they are a Democratic echo chamber at this point.


By that logic, I don't have to read your full post since the first 1/4 of your first sentence makes it obvious you're just going to go on about how there's no reason to read articles instead of just skimming their titles.  I mean, it's not like only reading the beginning snippet of your post could give an inaccurate impression of what you are saying, right?
I read the article FWIW, but I didn't need to. The title wasn't as revolting as what Foxman actually did. He didn't attack Biden for the use of the term, he attacked everyone else for fostering an antisemitic culture.

The article is about the ADL being annoying (surprise, surprise), but the title didn't match what happened.

What's wrong with what Foxman did?

Now the only predictor to still have it at Lean D is Cook.

There's a part of me that's worried that Cook is seeing something that nobody else is that makes Corbett more competitive than any of us think, but hopefully that's not the case.

I think he's seeing that you can make money by convincing people that your three-month old SWAGs about election results are the most accurate predictor of how said elections will turn out in November.

Phil is a dick, I don't think anybody (even Phil) would argue against that, but I can't see how he is "by far" the biggest one here.

I agree with R2D2. Bleh, moderate hero, not really bad, but not really good.
11  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Kasich vs. O'Malley on: September 17, 2014, 09:36:15 pm
I think a generic Republican will do better in 2016 than a generic Democrat, simply due to the consistent decline of parties that hold the White House. O'Malley also has a slight regional advantage (Midwesterner from Swing State VS East Coast safe liberal state.)

The default map would be a soft Republican win. O'Malley would be strong in Virginia. I'd expect Kasich to do well in Pennsylvania.



Kasich/ Martinez- 292 Electoral Votes
O'Malley/ Female Senator (It could be Gilibrand, Hagan, McCaskill, Klobuchar, or Heitkamp, depending on who does best during vetting)- 246 Electoral Votes



O'Malley would win PA, NH, OH, and *maybe* CO.  Additionally, Martinez won't be on the ticket.

I like how Nate Silver is suddenly persona non grata around these parts now that he has Republicans retaking the Senate.  Good 'ole Atlas objectivity right there.

1) What is do they think about Kasim Reed, John Barrow, Sam Olens, and Brian Kemp.

2) If Isakson retired, would they be open to voting for Barrow if he runs for the open seat?

Voting is done now, right? It seems like Vandenberg has prevailed.

So it is, my bad Tongue

This will be a rather interesting administration.  1940 should be pretty interesting...

Silver is right.

18  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Why the Clinton hype? on: September 17, 2014, 09:40:55 am
I have a better question,what's with the Rand Paul hype?

That's the guy who seems to have a messianic complex if anyone.

Hey, if anything, that's the same complex that Obama had.  That didn't stop him from becoming President.

Anyway, Rand represents a radical shift from the failed status quo, whether the topic at hand is civil liberties and/or foreign policy  Many people have represented this to an extent, but he's the only one who stands a legitimate shot at winning the entire game.  

Only in your mind.

Reality begs to differ.

You're right, reality shows no Republican candidate has any chance against our Savior Secretary Clinton.

@ Goon: Just ignore him.  KCDem is pretty clearly a sock or troll (or both).

As a principled left winger, I vote for the racist, sexist, homophobic, anti-semetic, xenophobic fascist because muh isolationism.

Roll Eyes

?

Is the eye roll because you think "leftists" are justified in voting Buchanan in this poll? Or did you just not notice my post was sarcastic?

The second one.

Siena's poll is 44-40 Grimm with 4% for the Green Party candidate and 12% undecided.

Only in New York Sad

Needs to go.

Awful as he is, I don't think he should be banned (though hopefully he'll do something banworthy soon), right now he's basically an all-but-confirmed sock version of Krazen.
