This blatantly self-serving non-editorial is just begging me to make a point-by-point response.  But no- I am above such petty squabbles, and I am not going to take the bait.  The administration officially has NO COMMENT.
Technically, the administration just commented on it by both the President and Vice President responding to it. Tongue

I'll grant you Florida but he's sinking like a stone there.  Palin should be ahead in three months with the way the trends are going to for Romney in Florida.

Colorado is another heavily Mormon state, at least among Republican primary voters.

We'll see if romney is ahead in Montana when the polling is released this week.  That'll tell me if Romney is viable at all.  If he cannot hold onto Mormon base states, he'll be toast.

Besides, the samples for the states that Romney led in were pretty darn small.  Besides New Hampshire, I'm not sure if Romney led in any state with a sample greater than 320 voters.
2% of the Colorado population are Mormon.

Well, PPP's polling suggests that Romney cannot win anywhere outside of deep blue/NE/Mormon states.

Florida and Colorado, two 2012 swing states.

11405  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Does politics affect what sports teams you support? on: November 14, 2010, 11:07:41 pm
Not really. All of my favorite professional teams are from Kansas City, which isn't a huge Democratic base, but isn't Republican either.
11406  Election Archive / 2012 Elections / Re: Will you watch "Sarah Palin's Alaska?" on: November 14, 2010, 10:03:49 pm
She just climbed a mountain.

Also, Todd never says anything.
Methinks he didn't really want to do this, but Sarah pushed him to. Same with Willow.
11407  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: Mideast Assembly Thread: Now debating the abortion bill on: November 14, 2010, 09:59:04 pm
So the format would be...

MA: Abortion Bill "Debating" ?

The title for this post is how I'd imagine it to be done.
Should we consider creating a new thread for each Gubernatorial term, or possibly each session, if we are going to edit the title? Nothing against you Ben, but if you ever go back to a higher office or take a break from the game, we'd be shot. Tongue

I think it'd be a lot closer. Many Americans would be deeply worried by the rumors Napolitano is a lesbian. And with someone as...crazy as Gravel as her running mate, I think Fitzgerald would pull it off.
11409  Election Archive / 2012 Elections / Re: Will you watch "Sarah Palin's Alaska?" on: November 14, 2010, 09:53:38 pm
Ok, so I watched it. Well, still watching it, as it isn't over yet. It isn't too bad, actually. A couple political references, but I think the main motive of this is improve her favorable. While it may make some like her a little more, I still wouldn't vote for her in the primary because she has too much baggage and would lose.

There's nothing treasonous about what Cantor said, and it's hilarious that some people think it is.
11411  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: What % of the national house ballot swing was directly caused by Pelosi? on: November 14, 2010, 04:26:56 pm
Not necessarily a certain percentage, but I think she was a contributing factor in a lot of people's decision to vote Republican this year.

Congrats! Smiley You'll be getting another thread fairly soon, as you're nearing 40,000 posts. You've helped improve this site 39,990 times so far.
11413  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: Mideast Assembly Thread on: November 14, 2010, 03:57:34 pm
I would like to remind everyone that this bill would only tax abortions in the 2nd and 3rd trimester, minus rape, incest, and mother's life in danger. And this tax would be on the doctor performing the abortion, not the patient.

For those who currently oppose the bill, what provisions/amendments would you like to be see made that could possibly make you support the bill? As always, I'm very interested in seeking bi-partisan solutions, because I feel that both sides need to work together to solve the problem. Complaining isn't going to get anything accomplishments, but working together on this will.

I'd say split the cost between the doctor and the one seeking the abortion. If it's on the doctor, yes, there will be less abortion doctors, but then the abortion will be done by others and unsafely. I know nothing is perfect, but I'd like to voice that concern.
I could understand that.
Badger, if you have a better idea to prevent abortions from occurring, you're more than welcome to write an amendment. Smiley I just had to start somewhere.
11414  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Heath Shuler (D-NC) to challenge Nancy Pelosi on: November 14, 2010, 12:14:16 pm
Best wishes to Pelosi. She has a proven record of creating jobs for Republican lawmakers, and deserves to stay on as the Democratic leader in the House.

Tmth?  Teddy?  You guys doing anything?

I am very close to giving up on this.  Maybe it was a bad idea.  For this to go anywhere, I need members to actually participate.  I've tried to keep the discussion going, but it feels like I'm talking to myself.  Tongue
Absolutely. While I haven't communicated with Teddy yet (never been on at the same time), I have been talking to several people on another site, and at least one person has joined Atlas.

I have a question.

SoEA Hashemite, what do you think makes Osvaldo Aranha worthy of having a building named in his honor?
11421  Election Archive / 2012 Elections / Re: Obama's intellectual equal on: November 13, 2010, 02:11:26 pm
Mitt Romney is the obvious choice, followed by Christie and Daniels.
11422  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Proposal. on: November 13, 2010, 12:09:09 am
So even this thread has turned into partisan arguing. Wow
Did you honestly expect everyone to just say "Oh, good idea" and stop? Tongue
11423  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: Mideast Assembly Thread on: November 12, 2010, 11:59:44 pm
Now, the abortion bill: I will absolutely not vote for a bill having a tax over $500.  Even then, I will be introducing an Amendment putting all the money made from taxes into public schools in the Mideast, just so y'all know.
That'll be taken into consideration when we get to the abortion bill. However, we first need to discuss the firearms safety bill which was introduced by Assemblyman Junkie.

I'd like to give a warm shout to A-Bob. A-Bob is a very good friend to me, and always has a positive outlook on life. He makes a lot of positive contributions to this forum, and is a rising conservative star in Atlasia. I'm very glad I've had the chance to meet and become friends with A-Bob. I trust and respect him more than anyone else here.
