Corker could very well be Trump's Biden, a Senator with foreign policy credentials.

When there is a groundswell of support for a particular candidate, they don't need a ground game.

Please discuss.

I hate to burst your bubble, but Trump has pulled ahead of Clinton in the newest polls released today.

Just sayin'.

Fox polls. And McCain was leading at this point in 2008. Just sayin'.



Three new very reputable polls out today, not a Fox poll, all of them showing Trump trending up.  He is tied in these polls with Clinton, even leading.

The race, dead even. 

To the Hillary is inevitable crowd out there, I say quit hiding your heads in the sand.

Realistically and seriously, win back huge numbers of women and Hispanic voters.

A steep uphill climb.
33  General Discussion / Constitution and Law / Re: Life peerage (UK) on: May 23, 2016, 12:46:43 am
Alec Douglas-Home, Baron Home of the Hirsel, was a British Conservative politician who served as Prime Minister from October 1963 to October 1964. He is notable for being the last Prime Minister to hold office while being a member of the House of Lords, before renouncing his peerage and taking up a seat in the House of Commons for the remainder of his premiership.

In October 1963 Prime Minister Harold Macmillan was taken ill and resigned as Prime Minister. Home was chosen to succeed him. By the 1960s it was generally considered unacceptable for a Prime Minister to sit in the House of Lords, and Home renounced his earldom and successfully stood for election to the House of Commons.

Mine eyes hath seen the glory of the coming of the Lord,
He is tramping out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored,
He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword,
His truth is marching on.

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.

For the life of me, I cannot understand why anyone would think Gingrich will  get the VP call from Trump.

Two old white men who have deep  issues with women.

Neither is what I would  call "likeable".

Since when is a bully who makes degrading statements about others likeable?

Since when is a ruthless politician who would do anything to win the Presidency likeable?

The Senate Debate

Gentlemen, I would like to welcome the two of you to this Senatorial debate this evening, Senator Edward Kennedy and CEO of Bain and Company Mitt Romney.

Gentlemen, we will begin with opening Remarks.  Senator Kennedy, you will go first.

Kennedy:  Thank you.  First of all, let me say how great it is to be here this evening to talk with the people of Massachusetts and to debate the issues with Mr. Romney.

My thirty one years in the Senate representing the people of Massachusetts has given me the experience and the knowledge to deliver for Massachusetts.

Mr. Romney

Romney:  Thank you.  And thank you to the sponsors of this debate for making this event possible.  I am most pleased to have the opportunity to debate the issues with Senator Kennedy this evening, and to have a dialogue with the great people of Massachusetts in presenting my case as to why I believe I  am worthy of their vote.

Kennedy:  If re-elected, the people have my word that they can continue to depend on the same people first representation that I have provided for these past thirty one years.

Romney:  If my opponent promises the same representation that he has provided for the past thirty one years, then the people of Massachusetts are in big trouble.

Unemployment rates in this state have risen dramatically since Senator Kennedy has been in the Senate.  I will bring jobs, meaningful mobs, to this state.  My field of expertise is jobs, and I will be using my professional and business experience to work for the people of Massachusetts in the United States Senate.

Kennedy:  Mr. Romney, you have cost more jobs than you have created.

Romney:  Not so Senator.  A look at the record shows we have created twice as many jobs as opposed to jobs lost.

Kennedy:  You can't be trusted Mr. Romney.  Your business record is simply too unstable.

Romney:  The people of Massachusetts can trust me more than they can trust someone who cheated on a university exam by paying someone else to take the exam for you, Senator.

And on and on the candidates went for two hours, debating the issues and exchanging barbs.

Mitt Announces His Candidacy For U.S. Senate

Thank you my friends, thank you.  It is so heartening to see thousands of you here today.

In what is probably the worst kept secret in Massachusetts, I am here today to announce my candidacy to represent the great state of Massachusetts in the United States Senate.

Sustained cheering

You will see the love of my life, my dear wife Ann, and our family behind me on the stage.  

Sustained cheering

My friends, I wish at this time to thank Senator Ted Kennedy for his five terms representing Massachusetts in the United States Senate.

Clapping

But let me also say, the time has come for new and fresh representation for Massachusetts.  And let me be clear, this is NOT a Kennedy Senate seat.  This is the PEOPLE'S Senate Seat, and I will be representing the people, all the people, of Massachusetts.  I will not be beholden to any special interests, entrenched in Massachusetts society for the past thirty years.  

Sustained cheering

You know my record as a Corporate Chief Executive.  I have a record of creating jobs, and that will be my priority representing the people of Massachusetts, jobs for the people of Massachusetts.

Sustained cheering

And I will not rest until this state, and this nation, has achieved pay equity for men and women.  Women must be paid equally to what men are paid for the same job.  

Sustained cheering  

I will fight for affordable housing.  I will fight to ensure our people receive proper medical care,  I will fight for the rights of our veterans, I will fight to protect our environment.  

Sustained cheering

These are just a few of the things I will do representing you in the Senate.  

The time has come for new leadership for Massachusetts in the Senate, for young, dynamic, and effective leadership.

Sustained cheering

With your help, my friends, we will go on to victory in November.

Thank you my friends, God bless Massachusetts, and God bless America.

Sustained cheering    
44  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Note to fanatic Hillary supporters..........she is no longer "inevitable". on: May 18, 2016, 12:21:55 pm
Not really sure how winning the primaries easily by double digits is getting "thrashed" but okay...

Well,  when you consider that Bernie started off with, what, 6% support when he announced his candidacy?

He has now won, I believe, 20 primaries and caucuses, in fact, upsetting Hillary in places where she should have won.

A very impressive showing for an insurgent, at the time not well funded, campaign, squaring off against the Democratic establishment, and against the establishment candidate, who has been campaigning for President for the past 8 years, and has had tremendous financial resources to draw on for the campaign.

Not a bad showing for a 72 year old  some time Independent some time Democrat socialist, who is likely to win some more states before this primary is over. 

45  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Note to fanatic Hillary supporters..........she is no longer "inevitable". on: May 18, 2016, 12:13:18 pm
I love some of these replies, sarcastic and humorous at the same time.

Gotta love it.

To be clear, I have not said here that Hillary would not win the election.

I have simply stated she is no longer "inevitable".

But I have to say that Hillary is "inevitable" for the Democratic nomination, but not for the general election.
46  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Note to fanatic Hillary supporters..........she is no longer "inevitable". on: May 18, 2016, 11:02:40 am
Hillary has been thrashed in the primaries, to a large extent, by Bernie.

Recent polling has shown Donald is running neck and neck with Hillary in key states.

The Democratic primary is becoming very ugly and divisive, witness Nevada.

Bernie is nowhere near dropping out, and is inciting his supporters with false hopes, witness his Tuesday night speech after Oregon to supporters in California.

The Bernie insurgency could cause chaos at Democratic convention.

Donald is running as the outsider, the anti-establishment candidate, and the mood of the country is swinging toward outsiders and away from the establishment.  Hillary is purely establishment.

Contrary to pontificating by Hillary supporters for the past year that she is "inevitable", no, she is not "inevitable".

I am no fan of Donald, but these are, and will continue to be, tough times for Hillary.

So it is time for all the "Hillary is inevitable" crowd to step down from their high horse.

The more i think about it Newt is the prefect pick for Trump.  He's basically like Trumps Dick Cheney.  Washington insider with experience at fighting the Clinton's.  Also he was runner up in 2012 gop primary somewhat so the voters already know who he is.

Yes, because America wants to be run by two old white men, whose treatment of women is less than desirable.

49  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Will there be a place in Trump's administration for his older children? on: May 16, 2016, 10:18:08 pm
Since he will probably run for the second term, if he wins the first, the only logical thing is for him to leave his business to his children.

By the time his second term is out, he will be old enough to retire in Florida.

Good point.  Actually, he's old enough now, 70 in June 2016.

Well, Trump is now on his third marriage, so there must be some details there with which Clinton can launch an effective counter attack.
