I don't work the kind of job that I can be sent home early.

Everything I read about this makes it sound like a disaster in the making. How long until the Green Men in unmarked uniforms appear?
53  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / U.S. Presidential Election Results / Re: Liberal Republican vs. Conservative Democrat Map on: November 09, 2014, 10:57:39 am

Also, could we see an election like this anytime soon?

Not possible with the current alignment and party coalitions. Maybe in a generation or two, things will be different, but even then I doubt it.
54  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Could Clay Aiken have won in a "Democratic wave" year? on: November 09, 2014, 10:54:44 am
No, the best he could have done was lose by single digits.
55  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: HYPO: Specter stays GOP on: November 09, 2014, 10:52:36 am
Toomey wins the primary and general. Not much else changes.
56  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Cory Gardner and Thom Tillis won by running to the center; will they stay there? on: November 09, 2014, 10:47:17 am
Spoiler alert: No.

The media will still pretend they're moderates though, like they do with Collins, Kirk, etc.

This.

^ the real question is will they vote for impeachment and the Ryan Budget (yes for both, probably).
57  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: Jerry Brown on: November 08, 2014, 05:46:35 pm
Such an underwhelming margin.

With this electorate, it's an epic landslide.
58  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Opinion of the 2006 election on: November 08, 2014, 05:45:12 pm
Freedom election. In fact so far it's the only good midterm election of the 21st century.
59  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: how would you have voted in ky senate race? on: November 08, 2014, 05:43:32 pm
Grimes, but she still ran a terrible campaign.
60  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: AZ-Sen: McCain likely running on: November 07, 2014, 03:27:21 pm
Whoa, how did he become so unpopular while I wasn't paying attention?
61  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Should we make voting mandatory? on: November 07, 2014, 02:16:20 pm
How about this: bring back the draft, but only for non-voters.
62  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: How Badly Will Hillary Get Spanked in the South? on: November 06, 2014, 09:41:38 pm
She'll probably win VA and FL and has a decent shot at NC. Other than that, she'll lose all Southern states by double digits, even AR.
63  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: NRSC Director thanks Democrats for sidelining Obama on: November 06, 2014, 02:57:51 pm
This guy is 100% correct.  A lot of people on here have been coming to the same conclusion.  Hopefully the Democrats take note.

They didn't learn from Gore shunning Clinton in 2000. I don't see why they'd learn from this.

Udall and Braley didn't become Republican-lite, they still lost significantly.

I think the main point is that Obama could have changed the national mood. He didn't have to be so unpopular. He was just as unpopular at the start of 2014 as he was at the start of 2012.

By hiding, he validated Republican attacks against him.
Amen to that. For all his other flaws, he's a superb campaigner. I wonder if anyone paused to consider that the reason he has such low approval ratings is because Democrats are running away from him and refusing to defend him.
64  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Should Dems copy the 2009/2010 GOP stategy? on: November 06, 2014, 09:46:22 am
If Republicans are smart, they'd abolish the filibuster...don't get me wrong, that is totally hypocritical, but politics is politics and you do what you need to do.
Problem is, Democrats are going to win back the Senate at some point, whether in 2 years or 20 years. I don't completely support abolishing the Filibuster, but they should actually force them to read the phone book at 2 AM.
65  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Mark Pryor won less counties than Blanche Lincoln on: November 06, 2014, 09:43:57 am
Good. He's as much of a traitor as Blanche is for opposing $10.10.
Yeah, not sad to see him lose. Unfortunate to see him replaced by a guy who supports George W. Bush's 2003 foreign policy in 2014, but still...
66  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Should Landrieu concede now and save us all the trouble? on: November 05, 2014, 12:58:18 pm
She has a slightly better chance in the runoff now that control of the Senate doesn't hang in the balance. Of course she'll probably still lose.
67  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Are O'Malley and Warner done (for President/VP)? on: November 05, 2014, 11:35:06 am
I'm not sure Warner is done, but it certainly was a huge surprise.

O'Malley never started anything so he could be done, his potential candidacy was met with such "meh" that even Maryland only had him at 4%.

Warner's VP hopes (if he had any) are gone after last night. O'Malley took a big hit - if he runs now, he won't be taken seriously.

69  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Arizona, Georgia, Montana: Which ones could Hillary carry? on: October 23, 2014, 05:46:14 pm
None are likely, but in order, I would say AZ, GA, and MT

Turtles are amazing animals, but unfortunately they don't make good pets. You can read more about the issue here: http://www.humanesociety.org/issues/exotic_pets/facts/thinking_of_getting_turtle_012609.html.

Still say the adage "fusion is the energy of the future, and always will be" holds until proven otherwise.

This. I'll believe it when I see it.
72  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: If Tom Corbett is the Republican nominee on: October 13, 2014, 03:38:11 pm
John Edwards and William Jefferson. Maybe Blago, but even that's a stretch.
73  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: SC not issuing SSM licsenses on: October 10, 2014, 09:50:40 pm


I have been thinking about that lately. Maybe not one of the governors, but some county clerks or other local officials in the deep south refusing to comply and forcing federal marshals to intervene.
Who do you think the Republican governor most likely to stand in a doorway to prevent a gay couple from getting married is? I would have thought Mike Pence, but it was legalized in Indiana by the latest court case and he hasn't, so maybe none will.

You'll be back in a few months. Almost everyone is. This forum is just too addictive.

It's a good school for sure, but to say it's one of the best in the world is a stretch.
