August (19)

It'd bring some sanity to the administration, but I don't see how the two of them could have a working relationship. He'd be forced out within 2 years--probably a year.
3  General Discussion / Constitution and Law / Re: What is the difference between an Acting President and an Actual President? on: November 17, 2016, 09:32:13 pm
I would think acting denotes a temporary nature, while your "actual" refers to a situation where the president whom the VP is replacing will not be returning.

Firstly, please don't send pms to people.  It might be crampy and miserable...but nobody else wants it.

Secondly, there is a post minimum to send PMs but I'm not sure what it is.  Maybe 25 or something.  So get posting!  You'll be there soon.  And welcome to the forum.

I just wanted to reply to a message sent to me. Never the less thank you.

Interesting that the post minimum applies to replies. I'd think that the software should allow an exemption to a reply. I get the rationale behind the minimum, but it really doesn't make sense in that situation.

I've heard Ronna Romney McDaniel being mentioned.

That's all I've heard, but it's not surprising that I've heard her name before hearing anyone else's.

In name perhaps, but I doubt they can repeal many of its most popular provisions (e.g. preexisting condition ban).

The pre existing condition ban only works if you require that everyone has insurance. If they remove the mandate and keep the ban, they'll create an unsustainable system.

I warned about Michigan (and got mocked a fair amount).  But even Wisconsin was a surprise to me.
8  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Michigan on: November 08, 2016, 06:41:21 pm
IF Turnout is high in Michigan = Clinton winning! There isn't enough rural hicks to over take the cities if turnout is high.

Rural isn't the concern. It'd be blue collar Trump supporters. Think usual Dems in Wayne, Macomb, Oakland

Both, but more nervous than excited.

The mods for that board haven't been on in the past few days.  Have you PMed one of them?

Way too close for comfort...

christ are we still talking about a huge outlier?

It's not really a huge outlier... It has Clinton below the average of other recent polls, but it's not that far off.
14  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential General Election Polls / Re: MI: New Strategic National Clinton +1 on: November 02, 2016, 06:39:09 pm
Remember when all polls used to be done by real polling companies that have existed for years/decades. What are these ing firms?

Strategic National is a consulting firm; they've been around for longer than 10 years, but I'm not sure how long they've done polling.

One thing that makes me worry about Michigan is the number of Trump yard signs I've seen in Wayne County--especially the blue collar suburbs (e.g., Lincoln Park, Wyandotte, Taylor, etc.) that have typically voted heavily Democratic.  I'm not to the point of saying Trump will win Michigan, but I definitely think he has a chance here.

Really...yard signs? Is that you Peggy Noonan?

I've sometimes seen more Sanders stuff than Hillary stuff in towns Hillary won by ~50 points. It means nothing.

I'm not saying it's a definitive indicator, but it is something that should concern the Clinton camp.  I'm not talking about just seeing Trump stuff in the cities overall... you have to ignore the yard signs placed in public places in order to get anything close to an accurate guess of support in the area; I'm talking about several Trump signs on streets where I've never seen a yard sign for a Republican candidate before.

With every new post in this thread, I am more and more glad that I have decided to support a candidate that I don't have to try to figure out how to defend every other second.

His freakout on the Guardian reporter was pretty bad though.
18  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: The Bundy Gang is Found Not Guilty on: October 28, 2016, 01:14:04 pm
This is why I said they should have been dealt with swiftly and ruthlessly, that it should have been another Waco.

Death without a need for death is never something to be desired. What an awful thing to say. That being said, I would have found them guilty.
19  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Conservatives consider abolishing the Supreme Court by refusing to fill it on: October 28, 2016, 01:03:40 pm
That would be the breaking point that would cause me to leave the Party.

didn't you say the same thing about the filibuster against chuck hagel?

I got fed up for a while, but I really don't remember. But at this point, the most important thing to me is the judiciary. It's the main reason I'm still in the party. If the party lost my interest there, there wouldn't be much left.

"Oh, we found some new stuff, but it may be nothing" is too thin on details to swing votes in a race where the other person is actually dangerous.

The market movements today disagree.
21  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: House Oversight Chair: FBI reopening Clinton Email Investigation on: October 28, 2016, 12:59:13 pm
It'll be interesting to see how this affects the race, and it shows how stupid some Republicans were when they claimed the original investigation was rigged in her favor.

But now a lot of Democrats are being just as obnoxious. Just let the investigation take its course. The hypocrisy on both sides when it comes to this issue is asinine.

What's with the deformed Alaska?

Also, you have to realize that when an elected official says, "I'm voting for X but not asking others to vote for X", it still has the effect of encouraging those who support the official to vote for X.
24  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Jason Chaffetz: "I won't defend Trump, i won't endorse Trump but i vote for him" on: October 26, 2016, 10:57:25 pm
A public statement that he will vote for Trump is an endorsement.  Just because he didn't use the specific word "endorsement" doesn't make it any less so.

That's debatable.  But it's more of an "endorsement" than Rep. Bob Sikes (D-FL) 1968 "endorsement" of HHH.  "I'm voting for the Democratic ticket, but I'm not asking anyone else to."  That embodies "support, but not endorse" better than any statement I've ever heard from a candidate.

What is the definition of endorse/endorsement?
