Kalwejt, for the third time now, how was AndrewCT's comments a "threat", as you suggested?

Threats, Andrew?

K, I miread this. Happy now, Isaac?

I simply wanted some clarification, as I found nothing "threat-like" in his comment.

11407  Election Archive / 2010 House Election Polls / Re: IN-02/EPIC-MRA - Donnelly ahead by 9 on: October 06, 2010, 05:46:43 pm
I really hope this race closes up, and I think it will. Walorski has a motivated and energized campaign going, and seems to be putting much more effort into it than Donnelly.
So, in other words, it's only going to get better for Donnelly (or go nowhere at all. Barring events. Also, the poll may simply be wrong. What I am concerned with here is simply basic logic. If your campaign is motivated and energized and you're still trailing by a considerable amount, you're up sh!t creek without a paddle. If you're trailing by a considerable - but not landslide - amount because you're opponent's campaign is more motivated and energized and whatnot, you have a mammoth task ahead of you but still everything to hope for. People who fail to understand something as basic as that should be banned from commenting on politics. Tongue )


Or maybe it's the fact that Republicans are running a candidate that was virtually unknown at the beginning and has spent months convincing people that this was a competitive race and that she could win? Donnelly has already alienated some of the hardcore liberal base by going after Obama and Pelosi. Not saying they'll vote for Walorski, but they may just stay home. Walorski was down by 20 points back in August, and she's closed the gap. I don't see what's so crazy about saying that an energized campaign can continue to come from behind and pull of an upset over a campaign that had a large lead but lost it due to not working as hard for it.

No, Andrew showed no interest in any reform efforts and now he was just looking for an issue to criticize the administration to make political points on that.

Which only show us his possible "quality" as President. No interest in anything but sign the bill, veto the bill, "I'm out of here for some time".

That couldnt be further from the truth. Although I wasnt a part of this one, I have participated in the past. If I am elected, and the people still want it to continue, than it will, and I will be participating in it. I would greatly appreciate it if you didnt falsify my charcacter, and deicide any of my future actions for the sake of your own campaign.

Threats, Andrew?
How is that a threat? He's merely suggesting that the aggressive and mean-spirited campaign you are running, filled with terrible assumptions, will only hurt you in the end.
'

It is my view that Andrew have no slightest vision for his potential presidency and is not offering anything valuable beside an ignorant criticism.

We have a clear choice between a candidate, who deals with Atlasia mechanism every day and can sacrifice his time for a very ungrateful and comsuming job in game, and a candidate, who has yet to show what he can do. Andrew did nothing yet.

Yes, I'm waiting for Andrew to outline his vision for a potential Presidency.
An elegant post, but you failed to answer the question I asked that prompted you to post. Once again, how was AndrewCT's post a threat?

Hello, everyone. I got a sudden urge to return this evening. It probably doesn't help that we're four weeks away from some big political event everyone keeps talking about.



Today, I played as Rick Santorum on President Forever...and I won! Cheesy It made me think of you, and I actually mentioned you when posting it on here.

I hope you stay around. Your insight on the upcoming midterms would be greatly appreciated. Smiley

Just in case some of you didn't notice, there is a vote going. Wink

Something I'll throw out there....
What would y'alls thoughts be on keeping a government appointment, but requiring the appointee to be confirmed by the Assembly with at least 2 votes? (Keep in mind there will only be 4 Assemblymen)
11416  Forum Community / Election and History Games / Re: President Forever results thread... on: October 05, 2010, 08:40:20 pm
Never led on this one, by won 51.5-48.5% on election night. Keystone Phil would be really proud of this...



Santorum/Pawlenty: 51.5%, 319 EVs
Obama/Clinton: 48.5%, 220 EVs

This poll should not have been entered, as it is only for one CD.

My bad. I'll move the date back until it can be deleted, just so it won't mislead anyone.

The Bingaman campaign has announced that Maggie Williams, who served as Hillary Clinton's second campaign manager in 2008, will manage the Bingaman campaign.

I'm excited to work with Senator Bingaman on developing a winning strategy. Polls have us down by a lot, but I truly believe once we spread our message out, we can close that gap very quickly. If I didn't think we could win, I wouldn't have taken this task on.
- Maggie Williams

11419  Election Archive / 2010 Gubernatorial Election Polls / Re: HI: Public Policy Polling: Aiona tied with Abercrombie on: October 05, 2010, 06:50:15 pm
Democrat   - 43%
Republican - 22%
Independent/Other - 35%

That doesn't seem too off to me, but then again, I can't remember what the `08 exit polls were...

Not Sure - 11%

No real surprises in the cross-tabs. Obama's approvals are worse in 18-45 than they are 45+. Who would have thought that with all the youth support Obama had in 2008?

I really hope this race closes up, and I think it will. Walorski has a motivated and energized campaign going, and seems to be putting much more effort into it than Donnelly. Vogel's numbers are also probably slightly exaggerated.

In 2014, I think it's going to be hard to find seats Democrats can win back. Almost all Republican-held seats are in the South and Mormon triangle. The only seats I can see Democrats winning is Kentucky if McConnell runs for reelection and Maine if Collins loses the primary. If Republicans have the White House and have low approvals, Georgia and Texas could also become competitive.

As for seats Republicans win, it all depends on the mood. Alaska has a great chance of switching, and Louisiana, Minnesota, and North Carolina all will probably be competitive, as will New Hampshire. Who knows after that?
11424  Election Archive / 2010 Senatorial Election Polls / Re: IN: EPIC/MRI: Coats defeats Ellsworth by 18 on: October 05, 2010, 02:50:24 pm
I keep waiting for this race to tighten up. The thing is, despite the fact the skeletons are rolling out of Coat's closet, he continues to lead by around 20 points. I'm starting to believe this will never close up.
11425  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: Mideast Assembly Thread on: October 04, 2010, 09:15:49 pm
I honestly can't see myself signing any bill that would strip the Governor one of his most important positions.
