1  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Dole endorses TRUMP; but wants apology to McCain, Martinez, Women, Muslims, etc. on: Today at 12:40:58 am
Odd to hear Dole supporting Newt for VP when he released such a scathing statement against Newt in 2012.

Dole has always been a party hatchet man.

Obviously, the Dole strategy is simple.

Luring Trump into picking Gingrich for VP, thus destroying any chance Trump had at winning the election.

In case anyone hasn't noticed, Trump is not one to give apologies.

At any time.

To anyone.

For anything.

Nice! Just checking - is Lenore still a senator?

Lenore served only one term in the U.S. Senate, 1979-1985.  She was 77 after one term. 

I didn't want to have her working in the Senate until she was 83 years old. 

I think Lenore and Mitt may be the only mother and son to have both served in the Senate.

5  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Gut feeling about the Hillary campaign on: May 27, 2016, 10:44:01 pm
I base some of my reasoning on the fact Trump is campaigning as the outsider, whereas Hillary is establishment, and my feeling this election is this may just be one of those elections where voters really want to take it out on the establishment.
6  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Gut feeling about the Hillary campaign on: May 27, 2016, 10:23:42 pm
It's early in the campaign I know, BUT..........

I have a gut feeling that the Hillary for President campaign is at the beginning of a slow, downhill trend, and will have ups and downs before the election, but will not recover before the election.

I kind of feel like the wheels are coming off her campaign.

It's just a gut feeling, not based on scientific trends at all.

And remember, I am not particularly a Trump fan.

Anyone have similar impressions?

Or if you have any gut feelings about any of the Presidential campaigns, what are they?

I, and I am sure others as well, would be interested to know.

Mitt Romney mounts a late entry write in campaign and wins the election.

America, and the world, are thereby saved from World War III  which would have been caused by Donald Trump and from bankruptcy which would have been caused by Hillary Clinton's spending policies.   

Romney goes on to win a landslide reelection in 2020, and goes down in history as one of the most beloved and truly great Presidents, and his likeness is added to Mount Rushmore.

November 8, 1994 Election Night

This is CNN

Good evening, to all those who have just joined us.  I'm Bernard Shaw, and we have all the latest of this off year election night.

The most high profile, and one of the most expensive Senate campaigns this season, possibly any season, is taking place in Massachusetts, where the brother of President John F Kennedy and the son of President George Romney who is also the grandson of President Gaskell Romney and the son of Senator Lenore Romney, have been squaring off against each other for the past several months.

Here we have two powerful political dynasties doing battle with one another.

We take you live to Kennedy Headquarters and to our own Julie Montrose.  Julie, what's the latest there at the Kennedy headquarters?

Julie:  Thanks Bernie.  Well, as you can see, this place is packed, and the people here appear to be upbeat and optimistic.  But I have had sources in the Kennedy campaign, who choose to remain anonymous, tell me they are a bit nervous going into election night.  They were not expecting such a determined and well funded campaign as that ran by Mitt Romney and his campaign.

Bernie:  Thanks Julie.  I think we're in for an interesting night.

Julie:  Indeed we are Bernie.

Bernie:  We now take you live to Romney headquarters, with CNN reporter Lars Christensen.  Lars, what's going on down there at the Romney headquarters?

Lars:  Well Bernie, as you see behind me, this place is filled with enthusiastic Romney supporters, eagerly awaiting the first returns of this election night.  I have had those close  to Romney express cautious optimism about tonight.

Bernie:  Thanks Lars.

Bernie:  We have the first returns coming in from the hotly contested Massachusetts Senate race.  John, what's the latest with these returns, and what do they tell us?

John:  Well Bernie, preliminary results show Kennedy in the lead, and exit polling tells us that this is going to be a close race.  Ted Kennedy has never had such a tough Senate race in all of his 31 years in the Senate.  And these early results would appear to bear that out.  Bernie, Kennedy is currently leading, but the bad news for Kennedy is that these results are coming in from a  county that is a strong Kennedy county, and Kennedy only has a small lead.  

Bernie, we now see some results starting to come in from areas that are expected to be good for Romney, and Romney is piling up huge leads from these areas.  If Kennedy has any chance of winning this contest, he is going to have to do better in his strong areas.

Bernie:  John, I see the latest results are now showing Kennedy taking a small lead over Romney.

John:  That's right Bernie.  These strong Kennedy areas are coming in for Kennedy with more favorable results than previously.  

Bernie:  John, now Romney is taking the lead.  What is going on there?

John:  Bernie, this is a close election for sure.  What is going on is that the Romney campaign has been very smart.  They have targeted areas where they know they have support.  They have been very well funded, and have been very aggressive.  

Two hours later

Bernie:  Well, the Massachusetts Senate race has gone down to the wire, and we have not been able to make a call until now.  But CNN can now call the Massachusetts Senate race for Republican Mitt Romney.

John, your analysis?

John:  Bernie, yes, this has been a very close race.  98% if the results are in, resulting in a narrow win for Mitt Romney.  This victory for Romney is as a result of Romney being able to hold the Kennedy lead in strong Kennedy areas to a reasonable level.  At the same time, Romney has piled up impressive leads in more favorable Romney areas.  That has never happened with Kennedy during his entire career in any of his Senate races.  And don't forget, Romney promised new and dynamic representation for Massachusetts in the Senate.  He was the young and capable executive going up against the entrenched incumbent, and the people chose the opportunity for change.

Bernie:  Thanks John.  We now take you live to the Romney campaign headquarters.  Romney is expected to speak at any moment.

Mitt Romney:  (family behind him on the stage)

Thank you Massachusetts.  

I have just a few moments ago had a very good conversation with Senator Kennedy, who has graciously conceded the election, and has extended his congratulations and best wishes to me and to my family in this victory.  Thank you Senator Kennedy.

I publicly extend my thanks to my wife Ann and our family for all the sacrifices they have made and all the work they have put into this campaign.  I could not have done it without their support.  

To the people of Massachusetts, I have heard your concerns for this state and for this nation, and I will act on them.  Pay equity, affordable housing, veterans rights, environmental protection, affordable and sustainable health care.  The list goes on and on.  

Massachusetts has opted for change, and I am ready to deliver that change.

Remember, you have a friend in me.

God bless Massachusetts and God bless America.      
9  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Trump blasts Warren for claiming Native heritage but lies about his own ..... on: May 26, 2016, 10:25:40 pm
.....claiming Swedish ancestry when in fact they were German.

http://www.buzzfeed.com/andrewkaczynski/trump-mocks-warrens-native-american-heritage-claim-but-false

In his first book, The Donald said his grandfather immigrated to the United States from Sweden. As pointed out in multiple biographies of The Donald and as a BuzzFeed News review of immigration records show, the claim isnít true.

What an accusatory, self serving, ridiculous title.

Explain yourself.

2016

What      A     Troll
I don't understand? Are you suggesting that it is not, in fact, 2016?

Conservatives of atlas, are you aware that it is, in fact, 2016?

He is clearly not actually asking if Conservatives of Atlas are aware that the current year is 2016.  That would be a truly stupid question to ask.

He is taking a shot at Conservatives of Atlas because some Conservatives of Atlas may hold opposing views to his, and he thinks that Conservatives views in certain matters are out dated, in his opinion.

No way.

What she is guilty of is doing something really stupid.

But doing something that stupid does not bode well for the election.

A big supporter of Charles Evans Hughes in 1916 and a big proponent of Teddy Roosevelt as the Republican nominee in 1920.

But my big question is, how do Atlas posters communicate with each other in 1917?  Smiley

18  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Who do you side with in the Trump/Warren spat? on: May 25, 2016, 05:41:44 pm
Warren.

Every time Trump opens his mouth, he makes it increasingly difficult for Republicans like myself to support him.

I don't know why he continues to blurt out racial slurs about others.

Unless, of course, the answer is that he actually is a fascist as others have accused him of.

Come on! I can't imagine you supporting Warren.

Warren's statements in this matter have been justified, I believe.  Trump is all about Trump.  And that is what she has said.

Trump has simply replied the way he always does, with racial slurs and petulant attacks.

But no, I would not support Warren for President, or any other office for that matter.

To win, the Democrats have to unite behind Hillary.

Even though she is under FBI investigation.
