26  General Discussion / History / Who should McCain have picked for VP in 2008? on: July 19, 2014, 12:32:39 pm
I believe most are agreed that Sarah Palin was not the best pick by John McCain for VP in 2008, coming across as an airhead in many respects, and perceived by most as not Vice Presidential material, let alone Presidential material.

The number one rule for picking a Vice Presidential candidate is to pick someone who is capable of assuming the Presidency in the event something should happen to the President.  In my view, McCain failed this criteria miserably.

In retrospect, who should John McCain have picked for Vice President other than Sarah Palin?

I remember Romney saying Russia was a threat and everyone laughed at him. If he does run again, his foreign policy could emphasise stronger opposition to Russia.

Mitt Romney, a true visionary.

Please, Gillibrand is hardly Presidential material.

Mitt wins easily.

Now that there is a Mitt Romney 2016 megathread, and for the record, I do not believe for a moment that Mitt will run for President in 2016, or ever again, but that aide, for the purposes of sheer speculation, let us say that Mitt did run in 2016, knowing what we know now, who would be the best running mate for Mitt?

Give your reasons for your choice or choices if you like.

I thought you would like this thread my friend. If Mitt doesn't run, who might he endorse?

Indeed, this entire forum owes  you a debt of gratitude for this magnificent thread.

You had a wonderful idea and demonstrated great foresight in creating this thread to discuss one of America's great leaders.

I will have to agree that if Mitt does not run he will endorse and support Jeb.

And I for one do not believe that Mitt will run.

Mitt Romney is the best presidential candidate in the last 100 years.  He's also a wonderful person non-politically speaking.  He loves his wife, is a terrific father, always sets good examples, and is just a warm, caring person.  Honestly, his dear father is looking down from Heaven and is so proud of his exemplary son.

That is some of your finest work.

Well, thank you my good man, thank you indeed.

Wait, Winfield commented in this thread, and he didn't pick up on this question in the poll?

"In the Presidential election of 2012, if Mitt Romney had become President instead of Barack Obama, do you think that, in general, the nation would be better off than it is today or worse off than it is today?"

better off 45%
worse off 38%


I don't want to rub it in and say I told you so.

Besides, the OP was concentrating on what an absolute and abject failure Obama has been, not on what a great President Romney would have been.
34  General Discussion / Constitution and Law / Re: Seniority in the U.S. Supreme Court on: July 12, 2014, 02:26:09 pm
I would say the reason was that Powell was likely sworn in before Rehnquist on that day.

I would also say that age would have nothing to do with seniority, but simply a matter of which one is sworn in first.

Now, perhaps due to the fact that  Powell was older than Rehnquist, may have been the reason Powell was the first to be sworn in, nevertheless, Powell would have seniority over Rehnquist because he was likely sworn in first.

Mitt Romney is the worst presidential candidate in the last 100 years. He's also a terrible person non-politically speaking. He abused his wife, is a bad father, doesn't set good examples, and is just a cold, uncaring person. Honestly, his dead father is rolling in his grave at his dirtbag son.

Allow me to correct the above statement:

Mitt Romney is the best presidential candidate in the last 100 years.  He's also a wonderful person non-politically speaking.  He loves his wife, is a terrific father, always sets good examples, and is just a warm, caring person.  Honestly, his dear father is looking down from Heaven and is so proud of his exemplary son.

Like him or not, Nixon was very well qualified for the office, more so than most any other candidate.

Unfortunately, he let his insecurities and his dark side take control.

A candidate never elected to the Presidency who was very well qualified was Hubert Humphrey.

What's next for me???

Bask in the glory of the magnificent new golden age of Atlasia which you ushered in and which will be remembered for all time in the annals of Atlasian history.

To paraphrase another great statesman, Winston Churchill

If Atlasia lasts for a thousand years, people will still say this was their finest hour.

According to many posters in this thread

Poll that shows Obama in a bad light = A useless poll

Get over it!
42  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Worst President since WWII on: July 05, 2014, 01:11:25 am
Well, I can only agree with the real poll in this matter.

The real poll is, after all, scientific and accurate.

Therefore, Obama

President Duke

Will you ever again be hearing the voices of the people crying out to you from your cup as you stir your coffee in the morning or from your glass as you sip a bourbon in the evening, pleading to you, yea veritably calling out to you, run Duke run, or will you ever again be hearing the pleadings of the people crying out to you from the mists as you walk along an empty sidewalk early on a cool crisp autumn morning, pleading run Duke run?

I too have had such promptings, but alas, I have never achieved the high office to which you have ascended.  But because of your inspiring leadership, I have learned that my efforts have not been in vain, indeed, your stirring words and your exemplary direction for this nation, have shown me that all can dream and that all can achieve.

I go now to shed tears of sadness in this the twilight of your incumbency, but yea, tears of joy as well in the knowledge that this nation has been forever lifted to a higher state by your direction.       
45  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Quinnipiac University Poll: Obama worst president since WWII on: July 02, 2014, 08:59:43 pm
Bottom line, Obama worse than Dubya!  Ha!  Who knew?

I love how Democrats are trying desperately to rationalize this astounding poll.

If this poll showed Dubya as the worst President since World War II, they would be all over this saying I told ya so.

Told ya America should have picked Mitt.   
46  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Would you like to be Mayor of New York City? on: July 01, 2014, 11:26:49 am
Being Mayor of New York City has been called the second toughest job in the U.S. next to being President.

Would you like to be Mayor of New York City?

Why or why not?
47  General Discussion / History / Re: Unluckiest U.S. politicians on: June 28, 2014, 09:35:33 am
Robert Todd Lincoln, son of Abraham Lincoln and Secretary of War under James Garfield.

Robert Todd was 21 when his father was assassinated.

1881, only four months after becoming Secretary of War in the Garfield cabinet, Garfield invited Lincoln to go with him for a Presidential visit to New Jersey.  Before boarding the train, Garfield was shot,  with Lincoln there, and Garfield died shortly afterwards.

1901, in Buffalo, New York, Lincoln was invited to a meeting  by President William McKinley, where McKinley was shot and died a few days later.  Lincoln  was in the room at the time of the shooting.

Lincoln turned down all future Presidential invitations.

I urge anyone who supports freedom of speech to join me at a protest in front of the Northeast Capitol in New York City as we blare this song loudly and proudly. There will be muffins.

The Regional Police will be out in full force to shut down your little civil disobedience party and throw all you scallywags and ne'er-do-wells into the hoosegow.

Long live music censorship!
