              2. The Senate shall investigate the activities and determine whether or not further punitive actions need to be taken against the official, such as the impeachment of said official, based on the actions taken by said official and the cirumstances in which it occured.

Thanks, Scott.

Damn it, I should have made that policy sooner.

We need to update the subtotals, too. Seatown never had his rates scored by Shua.

15561  General Politics / Political Geography & Demographics / Re: NC redistricting revisited on: July 21, 2012, 08:38:31 am

In the NC map I drew, the 1st district is 48.5% VAP black if I remember correctly-- more than enough to elect a black representative

Well, it would still retrogress out of 6 VRA-covered counties. Thats why the the Assembly had to redraw their original CD1 so that it complied with Section 5.

This is off topic, but those idiots at WRAL are still using the original map without the changes to NC-01 and surronding seats.

If this ends up going for Cruz big time, I highly doubt we will see this many debates between an establishment candidate and a tea party challanger again. One maybe, two debates tops.
15563  Election Archive / 2012 Elections / Re: Ron Paul: I 'Have Not' Decided If I'll Vote for Romney on: July 21, 2012, 08:26:21 am
I feel like Paul will either abstain or ultimately vote for Romney -- since he is an actual member of the Republican Party in spite of some un-Republican views, he clearly understands that the third parties are hopeless (now; there are paths they could take to try to get into a balance-of-power position, but they're stubbornly not taking them) and that the GOP is the lesser of two evils. He lives in Texas, where Romney will win anyway pretty much no matter what, so I think the first is more likely, or I guess maybe a symbolic vote for Johnson.

Paul could help Romney considerably in NV, CO and NH, though. So having not only his endorsement, but active support, could be advantageous to Romney. Especially if Johnson starts to surge in the polls, Romney might consider reaching some sort of deal with Paul on some of the issues we previous discussed a few months ago.
15564  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Tea Party “Fighters” = Tea Party COWARDS on: July 21, 2012, 08:09:58 am
It is an important consideration to take into account and I certainly wouldn't vote for someone like Walsh for many reasons. However, to pick politicians based on this criteria alone is certainly a mistake as you will end up rejecting a lot of otherwise good people and putting in place people who will support policies you disagree with. Hence, why I wouldn't automatically vote for Duckworth in this situation. That would have to be determined by her policies and views. Simply being a veteran isn't enough to ensure they actually will do what is best for the country. They may think they are and I respect and acknowledge their intentions to be sure, but a veteran can have just as many misguided political views as anyone else.
15565  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Ohio redistricting proposal poised for failure on: July 21, 2012, 07:46:37 am
You both are approaching this from a disturbingly slanted viewpoint of what is best for my party and not what is best for the people. It is that very attitude of "all I care about is what is best for my party" that has turned redistricting into a corrupt mess.

I sincerely hope you're not including "automatic voter registration" in your "bad because it supports the Democrats" thing.

I find it hilarious that you can conveniently pretend that you know me far less then you actually do in order to get in a ridiculous jab such as that.

In case you didn't notice, greenforest wasn't the only one that I criticized in this thread. Roll Eyes
15566  Election Archive / 2012 Senatorial Election Polls / Re: FL: Survey USA: Mack posts lead of 6 on: July 21, 2012, 07:42:19 am
If I read it right, Nelson only has 69% of black voters while Mack has 18%. I doubt that will end up like that. Probably 87-13 is the least Dem they could be and it is likely to be 90-10 or greater.
15567  Election Archive / 2012 Senatorial Election Polls / Re: FL: Survey USA: Mack posts lead of 6 on: July 21, 2012, 07:37:47 am

While this may be dismissed as an outlier, it's certainly concerning to the Nelson campaign that they're trailing by 6 in the exact same poll that has the President up by 5.

No because this is an absolute junk poll.

Well, SUSA is a very reputable pollster.

I think that this is an outlier, but I do agree with tmth that the Nelson campaign should see this as a warning.

If Nelson thought that he could turn Mack into the second comming (of Katherine Harris), then he is naive. Mack has issues to be sure, but this was always going to be a close race.

15572  Election Archive / 2012 Elections / Re: Obama spends $100 million on Bain ads, falls behind in polls on: July 20, 2012, 07:35:41 am
Obama is trying to lock Romney out of the electoral college by making the swing voters in OH suspicious of Romney and thus far more likely to default to Obama. It is very difficult to make up for OH elsewhere and Romney has struggled there for the last several months. It is precious little to show for $100 million but that very little may indeed be what gives Obama the election, even if it is just 2% or less of the vote that has been shifted.
