No, terrible idea! The colors make sense. Libertarian-ish candidates get the yellow color, while populist candidates get the orange color. That's how we've done it in past elections (with Ron Paul, Mike Huckabee, and Rick Santorum).

"Ahora mismo, díselo en Español si tu quieres". That basically translates as: “Right now, say it in Spanish. If you want.”

holy sh[inks] that's like the most badass thing cruz has ever done then

Disgusting tactics. Republicans know that the socialist would lose in a landslide in the general so they'll vote for him tactically against Clinton.

In response to a poll showing Clinton winning the African-American-majority SC Democratic primary:

Ok.  Go lynch yourselfs.   I wish I could explain such stupidity.

Why did John Edwards perform so outstandingly well in the West Virginia primary? He received 7.31% four months after he had dropped out!!!
Do you think he could have won the primary if it had been held before Super Tuesday?
And could he have won WV in the general?

Because the other options were a black and a woman.
9  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Scalia just died (really). How will this affect the race? on: February 13, 2016, 05:47:15 pm
So the GOP will block any appointment until the election, right?

Not sure if that would be in their best interests. More Republican obstructionism would hurt them not only in the presidential election, but the Senate as well.

Yes, obstruction would hurt swing state Senators up for re-election, like Ayotte, Portman and Toomey.

An aside: If you're cheering the death of someone solely on ideological grounds, you need some help. He has a family, kids, friends, etc. Scalia is a person, not a political prop, be respectful.

So what? He wanted to send gay people to prison for having sex with each other. He voted to repeal Obamacare and take health insurance away from millions, which would have resulted in tens of thousands of deaths. He voted to execute innocents. He was an awful person, who caused death and suffering.

This is a parody website, right? Please tell me this is a joke!

If not, RIP America.

No, it looks like a legit San Antonio local news organization. Not seeing it anywhere else yet though.

(This is your friendly neighborhood spidermod adding to the first post of this thread to remind people to be reasonably respectful in your comments, regardless of your opinions of the man, good or bad.  I have a busy day tomorrow and I'm not going to wade thru posts here with a fine-toothed comb to get rid of the garbage, but with a broom.)
15  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: If Trump wins SC on: February 13, 2016, 02:00:28 pm
If TRUMP can't be stopped in South Carolina then I really don't know how the Republican Party expects to stop him. After South Carolina, this becomes a national race. You have something like half the delegates up for grabs in the first two weeks of March. There's no more time for ground game and town hall meetings and hitting TRUMP with targeted attack ads.

WOW! I've been saying for a while that he needs to run ads like this one. Putting in a black as the victim should do a lot of good in South Carolina, where the racist whites are desperate to prove that they're not actually racist.
17  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Is Trump a libertarian? on: February 12, 2016, 08:40:31 pm
He's not, but he draws a lot of his support from those who supported Ron Paul in 2012.

The Bush campaign will spin this as good news lol.

Well they're tied for second place. YUGE improvement from their NH tie for 3rd place!
19  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Is SC a must-win for Cruz? on: February 12, 2016, 04:07:38 pm
It's not must win in the sense he'll drop out if he loses. But if he can't win SC then it's hard to see how we wins the nomination. TRUMP is really the only candidate that can afford to lose here, IMO, and still have a realistic chance at the nomination.

So the race will be essentially over after the SC votes are counted, so says Lief. Whatever.

If TRUMP cannot be stopped in the part of the campaign where retail politics and ground game is most important, and where the focus is one state at a time, then I don't see how he can be stopped when multiple states are voting per day.
20  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Would Kasich accept an offer to be TRUMP's running mate? on: February 12, 2016, 04:04:38 pm
Yeah, I was thinking about this a few days ago, and I think TRUMP/Kasich would be a very strong ticket. They seem to have a decent relationship. But I think Kasich said in a recent interview he doesn't want to be VP. Not sure if he really meant it though.

How could he run with a guy who said all those outrageous things? It would be humiliating for Kasich to hook up with such a man.

Eh, any small bit of humiliation is worth the opportunity to be a heartbeat (and considering Trump's red meat-dominated diet, not a very strong heartbeat) away from the presidency. I would think.
