Just played through the introductory scenario. Played as the George W. Bush-esque character starting January 1, 2008. Ended up starting an affair with the (female) governor of Utah. Gained some bipartisan appeal by convincing Congress to raise pollution taxes and promote academic expression- my approval started getting unrealistically high (like 90%). There was a border scuffle between the Koreas that I totally ignored. Prez's father got kidnapped by the Russian mafia and I paid them a ransom of $40 million to get him back.

I got in a big scandal when someone exposed to the press that I shipped weapons to a Tibetan seperatist group. Although an impeachment trial was scheduled, the chief of the army took justice in his own hands, staged a coup and sentenced the president to die. He was killed  by firing squad at dawn on the Fourth of July.

I'd like the same categories, plus with maybe "Best Electoral Analysis" or something since it's an election year.

     A usurpation? I smell some excitement around the corner. Smiley If Brandon doesn't mind, I would like to officially declare LA as a neutral state here.

I'm in fantasy-LA now, too.

A good guy, though he looked far more dashing when he sported a yellow avatar - I bet the ladies were all disappointed when he switched. Wink

Cheesy

Actually IIRC the main reason I first changed to I-GA was because everyone kept calling me Dibble.

Awesome, Ebowed.

I fail to locate any proof that any of the countries listed (besides Atlasia) ever actually joined the GTO.



He's GM, so what he says goes in regards to that stuff I'd assume.

Sure it is.




Even Sebelius would have a hard time winning a US Senate seat.

I actually think we should give them two options to vote for:

1) Statehood
2) Independence


and that's it

I agree with that. IIRC the commonwealth situation wasn't supposed to be permanent anyway.

Physically she's not all that great, but that's hardly what determines her hotness.

Baby Bush said he was Socially Conservative, but I have seem him idle on most Social Issues, except Iraq.

He did get 2 conservative justices on the Supreme Court.  And I believe his ONLY veto in the first term was on federal funding for embryonic stem cell research (I could be wrong).  And how is Iraq a social issue? 

I think he's been a pretty consistent social conservative.  That's about the only thing he has been consistent on.

True, but I think he only did those things not to lose election and stay cool with the South. The recent 2008 election shows a Social Moderate with Fiscal Conservatism loses if they are Republican.

The only thing 2008 shows is that John McCain can't win if he is John McCain. Lol, don't try to make some sort of broad, far-reaching conclusions based on a single guy's defeat.

11873  Election Archive / 2012 Elections / Re: former NM Gov. Gary Johnson interested in 2012 presidential run? on: November 14, 2008, 05:03:22 pm
I'd vote for him if I wasn't living in a swing state at that point in my life.

To clarify, from what I've read on this elsewhere, I don't think anyone knows whether he'd run as a Republican or a Libertarian.  He may decide to go the GOP route, just because the GOP primary debates give you lots of free exposure (as with Ron Paul in 2008).



Ah, I was assuming he was going to run for the Libertarian nomination. If he runs in the Republican Primary I'd vote for him if I lived in a state with open primaries. Tongue
