Boomers also committed more crimes...

It's not their fault. It's all the lead their parents' generation put in the air.

People don't actually believe that to be the primary reason for the crime boom, do they?

Please don't troll on threads where I'm trying to have a conversation with Snowguy. It's too confusing.

Jeb and Mitt did not talk about the 2016 election. And really, how could they have? This meeting was awkwardly scheduled before Mitt announced.

It sounds like Democrats are falling into the trap of attacking "Sweet Sarah." Won't we regret it! #2008

All this means is that winning in PA in a GOP wave by two points doesn't mean you're finished in your re-election bid. And Toomey has advantages that Santorum didn't have even when he wasn't considered super controversial.

Well, I agree that a) Toomey's close win in a Republican year doesn't necessarily mean he'd lose with a more D electorate after six years have passed, and that b) Toomey lacks the kind of problems that pulled down Santorum in 2006. I do think that senate votes are much more nationalized than they were in 2000 (although the trend was certainly there then) and I expect it will pull down Toomey if the election unfolds as I expect. But that is not inevitable and I wouldn't be surprised if he's still a senator in 2017 with a President Clinton.

WŁrttemberger, this has been hashed out on other threads. Santorum's opponent was from the wrong part of the state and completely broke coming out of the primary, so he wasn't even considered a real candidate by voters in SEPA who split Gore-Santorum that year. Also Santorum hadn't yet acquired his image as a complete gay-sex-obsessed buffoon that doomed him in 2006.

Republicans won control of the House by a significant margin despite getting 1 million fewer votes than Democrats in 2012. I am just not going to get upset about a couple of swing seats in AZ that could have been solid Republican when it's basically impossible for the current Democratic coalition to get control of government through democratic means.

Should a nonpartisan state redistricting commission be correcting for imbalances in other states?

If you don't want to address the question, you are free not to respond.

Thank you!

Q: Hillary Clinton's husband served as president. Does that make you more likely to support Hillary Clinton for president, less likely, or does it make no difference?

more likely 23%

Now, that is interesting to see quantified. It will be exciting to have Bill on the campaign trail after the good service he did Barack Obama in 2012.

This will sound like a broken record and probably will not be believed, which I can't blame, but I am going to try to eat better and start cooking for myself when I get up to Tulsa this weekend.  I'm going to start with the dishes I know, such as scrambled eggs, macaroni and cheese (stove top kind), and spaghetti and then branch out into other dishes as time goes on.  I'm not going to set any kind of elaborate goal just yet, I want to get started first before I set my sights on loftier goals.

NONE OF WHAT YOU SAID IS HEALTHY! YOU EPITOMIZE ALMOST EVERYTHING THAT IS WRONG WITH AMERICA!!! Shocked How can you be so ignorant about your health? Macaroni and Cheese is a combo of fat and carbs, you need to eat 3 Veggies (cheese isn't a veggie) and a protein and exercise and stop making excuses!!! omg!!!

Ok. To be fair, while none of this is healthy or good eating, it's still better for portion control and fat, salt, etc. to eat what you cook at home than what you get in a restaurant. It's hard to cook as unhealthily as at a restaurant.

No harm, no foul.  That's all you can ask in rebuttal speeches

Yes, that's a raging success.

I would be tempted to interpret it as a smackdown to the Democrats who ran from him and asked him to hide away for the duration of the midterms. 

That is an interesting thought. I am sure "I won my campaigns" went through his head more than a few times as senators asked him to stay out of their states, and then lost anyway.

He outswaggered George W. Bush. That's really got to hurt.

He wasn't ready last time, but he has done the prep and I think he will be a contender. As I have said before, he is just one good debate performance away from getting back into the top tier.

He isn't ever going to be ready.  No amount of prep is going to fix stupid.

And yet, George W. Bush...

He won't be on pain meds this time.

Does the George W. Bush formula still sell in the primaries and the general? I'm concerned it could.
