1  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Inevitable question: Who would be the best VP pick for Jim Webb? on: November 26, 2014, 09:53:31 pm
Brian Schatz is the obvious answer.
That's an interesting choice.

He's young and liberal, which can help with the base.

His record is just enough that he doesn't appear too inexperienced, but there isn't anything distracting that would scare centrist voters.

He was Chair of a Senate Subcommittee on Communications, Technology, and the Internet, which helps establish him as a policy expert on something important.

He apparently has an identical twin brother, Steve, so that would come in handy if the Vice President had to be in two places at the same time.

However, that could become very confusing for the Secret Service.

If Dems want to continue to be led by a dirty liar and an ultra leftist from the left coast that's  fine with me.

But seriously, I am not sure that a bureaucrat is the right person at this time to head this crucial department.

Well we just had a senator in at the job and look at how that turned out...

It's not going to be McCain as he's already gearing up for reelection and I feel would have trouble working with Obama, and Jack Reed has already shown that he is not interested. Who would you suggest?

I would have no problem with someone who has experience working in the DoD.

I would recommend outgoing Colorado Senator Mark Udall for Defense Secretary.

I am sure Udall would jump at the chance, and would not have any problem clearing confirmation.

With relevance to DoD, Udall has the following Senate experience

Committee on Armed Services
Subcommittee on Emerging Threats and Capabilities
Subcommittee on Readiness and Management Support
Subcommittee on Strategic Forces (Chairman)
Select Committee on Intelligence

Simply put, Romney will not run.

Will the world see the likes of such great statesmen and visionary leaders as Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin D Roosevelt, Winston Churchill ever again?

Please discuss.
9  General Discussion / History / Re: Who was the most intelligent President? on: November 25, 2014, 07:19:55 pm
I just noticed that nobody mentioned, Bush Sr. I think he's worth mentioning.

Really I think no President of the modern era could be said to be unintelligent, except for maybe Reagan.
Bush Jr. definitely didn't strike me as intelligent. Harding wasn't very bright either apparently.

Bush Jr.

B.A. in history from Yale
M.B.A. from Harvard

Two degrees from two of the most prestigious ivy league universities in the U.S.

Not too shabby.

I am not saying that he was among the most intelligent Presidents, but he does have an impressive education.

FORMER NORTHEAST GOVERNOR WINFIELD TAKES TIME OUT FROM SHOVELING SNOW TO SERVE IN A BUFFALO COMMUNITY KITCHEN, PROVIDING A HOT MEAL TO THE LESS FORTUNATE IN SOCIETY   

Press:  Governor Winfield, can you explain why you have taken the time to serve in this community kitchen today?

Winfield:  Yes, and thank you for asking.  You know, the people that come here and to other kitchens like this across this nation, are just like you and I, only they have had some unfortunate circumstances occur in their lives.  They deserve to be treated with respect and with dignity.  I have always believed that those who are blessed with abundance should share with others who may be less fortunate.  I have also believed that it could be any one of us who may be in these circumstances at some point in time, and that if we do find ourselves in this situation, that we would be thankful for the help ourselves. 

I would like to encourage the good people across this nation that if they find themselves in a position to do so, that they would consider spending some of their time in volunteer work in some capacity to help the less fortunate. 

Press:  Thank you Governor.

Winfield:  Thank you.

By 2020, America is sick of Clintons and sick of Democrats in the White House!

Leaving politics behind, it is always a good cause to help those in need. Great job!

Smiley

Thank you JoMCaR.

Indeed, when it comes to helping those in need, there is no such thing as party lines.

And now, I shall return to my task of organizing the citizenry for flood mitigation.

Thank you Winfield. Your generosity and selflessness truly knows no bounds.

If you ever see fit to visit the Good People of Vermont in your travels, we would be happy to have you.

Thank you my dear friend Lief.

Your comments have moved me to tears.

Ah, Vermont, how well I remember.  During the last gubernatorial campaign, tears filled my eyes as I surveyed the devastation first hand, when  I stood upon the wreckage of war, and addressed the good people of Vermont,  and later, when I met many of them personally, trying, in my own small way, to bring comfort and consolation  to shattered souls. 

Vermont will always hold a special place in my heart.  And I can assure you, that will not be the last time I will be visiting Vermont, and speaking with the brave people there who have gone through so much heartache and tragedy.

Winfield is someone who can always be counted on to stand with The People in Their time of need.

Thank you my dear friend Simfan.

Your words have moved me greatly.

I do what I can, as any caring person would.

Wherever people of the Northeast are in need, they can count on Winfield to be there to help them!

Great, but do I get to kiss your ring as well?

With the announcement by former Virginia Senator Jim Webb that he is launching an exploratory committee for a possible Presidential run in 2016, who would be the best VP pick for him?

Please discuss.

FORMER NORTHEAST GOVERNOR WINFIELD COMFORTS VICTIMS OF THE RECORD BUFFALO SNOW STORM DURING A BREAK FROM SHOVELING SNOW HIMSELF

21  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Former Northeast Governor Winfield helps Buffalo, NY in their time of need on: November 20, 2014, 08:39:49 pm
Well the fact that this is a state of emergency goes without saying. My crews have been on the ground since the first day of the snowstorm, and I commend you for helping them clear the snow. I wish the Knights' Templar of Rhode Island my best in their work to help the great people of Buffalo, NY.

Thank you dear Governor.

I cannot speak for the Knights' Templar of Rhode Island, as I know none of them, or if they even exist.

But kindly direct me to your issuance of a state of emergency order, as I cannot find it.  The last pronouncement I see from your office is November 13, and it had nothing to do with Buffalo.

I also see nothing in the Assembly discussing this emergency situation.

FORMER NORTHEAST GOVERNOR WINFIELD, FOREGROUND, PITCHING IN TO HELP THE PEOPLE OF BUFFALO, NY, DIG OUT FROM UNDER RECORD SNOW FALLS

Press:  Governor, can you tell us why you have taken time out of your busy schedule  to be  here today in this almost impossible undertaking?

Winfield:  Thank you.  My heart goes out to the good people of Buffalo and the surrounding areas in their struggle against this historic act of nature.  I simply cannot stand idly by and watch these events unfold before my very eyes.  I am simply doing my part to help these poor people, these fellow Northeasterners and these fellow Atlasians.  

The Northeast government and Assembly seems more interested debating things like making incest legal, making drugs and marijuana legal, making alcohol legal to minors, throwing out the window any laws to control distracted driving, thus leading to absolute carnage on our highways, making sexual relations in a parking lot legal, allowing open alcohol while driving, making  pornography free and available and legal to fourteen year olds, leading to further violence against women.  

The list of stupidity goes on and on.

Myself, I would rather spend my time helping the victims of this, what can only be described as a monumental natural disaster.  

I urge the government, both national and regional, to declare a state of emergency, and get these people the help they need and deserve.

Press:  Thank you Governor.

Winfield:  Thank you.  Now I have to get back to helping these people.

Voters will not want a third Obama term.
Clinton is a big enough political figure that she can distinguish herself from Obama.

No chance for that.
First, she was his Secretary of State.
Second, she will be asked direct questions about his policies and what she intends to do about them. If she sides with them - she's gonna be labeled third Obama term. If she rejects them - she's gonna alienate the base.

Just remember what a simple question:

"Did you vote for President Obama in 2008 and 2012?"

did to Alison Lundergan Grimes.

1.) I said 'distinguish', not 'distance'.  She doesn't have to run from Obamacare.  She could say something along the lines of: 'Its a good program that has helped millions of people, but there are problems with it that need to be fixed and things that could be improved'.   

2.) Clinton already has her own identity. Its one thing to tie the 3 year Kentucky Secretary of State to the president.  Hillary Clinton has been a national figure for over 2 decades now.

And therein may lie the real problem for Hillary.
