Mitt Romney addresses a riled up crowd in Austin, Texas...

My friends, tonight marks the beginning of a better tomorrow! 4 years ago, very few took our campaign seriously. Yet tonight, we made history, and America has won big time! I thank voters in Rhode Island, Vermont, and Ohio...oh, and Texas (crowd roars) for their vote of confidence tonight, and I look forward to carrying the party banner in November. I thank Governor Huckabee for a good race as well. I know his supporters may be disappointed, and that's understandable. Right now, the alternative is grim, and we must have a conservative administration for the next four years. Thank you all, and God Bless!!!

That looks like the exact type of ad I'd expect out of a campaign that's down by 8 with no real idea how to close the gap.
While I think it shows a lack of integrity on the McMahon camp's part, I think it does a very good job at reminding voters of the incident that caused him to lose his double-digit lead.

Vote SPC: He supports the right of smokers to give children respiratory problems.

     Every good thing can be spun to look bad. Case in point: the quoted post.

Please explain how overturning a smoking ban is a good thing. Not in terms of libertarian buzzwords (I know about personal and business freedom, blah blah), explain how it's better for society for second hand smoke to be everywhere.

Your bill, as much as you would like to deny it, infringes upon the rights of restaurant attenders and movie goers. If they are willing to pay a few bucks less to go to a theatre or restaurant in which they have a slightly better chance at contracting a health issue in the future, who are you to stop them? What's next, are we going to ban the sale of fatty foods in restaurants and movie theatres to prevent heart problems?
The only real difference is that when you eat fatty foods, that's a choice you're making. Someone else is making the choice to smoke around you.

I'm happy to endorse you. Smiley You'd make a fine addition to the Senate. While I'm sure the other two also would, I find your political positions closer to mine.

At a rally in Boulder, Colorado, Senator Mark Udall joins the Bingaman campaign...

The fact is, I'm tired of wasteful spending. While I believe some spending is good, as well as the social programs that come with it, I think the way this government is spending is atrocious. It's not liberal, it's socialist. I'm ready for some real, common-sense liberal leadership in the White House. If people actually think the policies Barack Obama are implementing are liberal policies, our kind of people will die out really quickly. That's why I've decided to endorse a real liberal, Jeff Bingaman. He'll take America back to the days before Bush and Obama when we had a surplus. I ask Colorado to stand beside me in support of Bingaman.

Senator Jeff Bingaman holds a rally in Boulder City, Nevada, where he responds to recent comments made by President Obama...

When Franklin D. Roosevelt sat down and envisioned America's future, I'm sure that he did not envision one that included a skyrocketing debt. The New Deal was brilliant, and brought America back to life. But President Roosevelt also understand that some cuts needs to be made, and spending had to be curved. I'm also sure Roosevelt didn't freely spend government money like Obama has been doing for personal expenses.

America can continue down the same path that President Bush and President Obama have taken us down. Or we can go down a new path, with smart liberal policies. Let's reform Obamacare at a fraction of the cost. There are great parts in that bill, and I'm proud to have voted for it. But some improvement can be made. Let's cut earmark spending out of our legislation, and ban lobbyists from being present when voting occurs. We have to get this nation working again for the people, not the government!

Mitt Romney makes a stop in Houston, Texas, where he is hoping a win in one of Republicans' strongest states will seal the nomination. He focuses heavily on his experience in the private sector and conservatism on social issues. He is accompanied by Congressman Barton and former President George HW Bush.

You're probably about the only person who thinks she can win, and you only think that because you are a hack who completely ignores polling.

I think she can win!

Yes, your prediction map giving Blanche >90% of the vote would make that pretty clear.


Tmth, I agree with you, it's quite unfortunate that these hacks from the prediction map part of Atlas managed to find the forum. Sad

First, thank you for the warm welcome, Libertas.

Second, Blacnhe Lincoln's birthday was September 30th, so we decided to wish her a happy birthday.

We do the same for other politicians.
You forgot Lee Fisher on August 7th.
11419  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: The Home Stretch on: October 02, 2010, 08:09:52 pm
It was 6 points, and it was the last reliable poll.

Are we talking about the same poll that had Edmondson leading Askins by 16 points?

How kind of you. Be expecting a call from the Lincoln campaign in the coming days thanking you for your generosity and kindness. I'm just worried that if anyone on her campaign saw your prediction, they'll actually start thinking there is hope, as there is still one person, well, two perhaps, that thinks she can win.
11421  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: The Home Stretch on: October 02, 2010, 07:27:58 pm
Okay. Then I'll be wrong.

I can see both of them winning, although Fallin has the edge.

When I was down in Oklahoma a week ago, I saw tons of Askins yard signs, but very little Fallin.

However, Fallin has been running several top-notch ads.
Fallin was still leading by 8 in that poll. And it was way back in July. In July, Republicans were leading by less than that in Michigan. Does that mean Democrats are going to win there too? You don't even seem to think that, given you have Snyder comfortably winning. So you're contradicting your own self.

This is CNN...

We now take you to Albuquerque, New Mexico, where Democratic Senator Jeff Bingaman is expected to announce that he will be challenging President Barack Obama for the Democratic nomination. On stage with the Senator is colleague's Barbara Boxer, Harry Reid, and Tom Udall. Former Governor Bill Richardson is also on stage...

I'd like to thank all of you for joining us here today. It means so much to me to officially announce my candidacy in New Mexico, the state I have served for in the United States Senate and the state whose primary I plan on winning on my way to becoming the next President of the United States!

The United States faces huge challenges, but we also have huge opportunities. I am running for President because these times call for a leader with a proven track record, and a demonstrated ability to bring people together to tackle our problems at home and abroad.

In 2008, I was a supporter of Barack Obama. I believed in the change he promised. However, this administration has been filled with disappointment after disappointment. America continues to suffer from high unemployment numbers, a growing deficit, an education system that continues to get passed by other nations, and a weak border. I believe the liberal policies touted by great leaders such as Franklin Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy, and Bill Clinton do work. However, they must be implemented properly.

Out of control spending is not a solution, which our President seems to think. It is a growing problem. We cannot afford to let our children be placed in increasing debt, and at the rate we're going, they're going to be faced with tough decisions.

Some may ask why I'm running. President Obama is liberal enough, and polls have me down. Well here's your answer: I'm running because I am sick and tired of the political games being played in Washington. I'm tired of drinking the kool-aid. And I believe it is time for liberals to stand up to our incompetent President and say enough is enough! It's time for real liberal leadership, not what we've faced for the last few years. I'm running for President to be that leader, and I ask for your support. Thank you, and God Bless!

Mitt Romney holds a major rally in Columbus, Ohio, in front of the capital building...

Thank you all, thank you so much! It is a privelage and an honor to be here.

For years, Washington, and Columbus, have been plagued with corrupt politicians who have no interest in the people they serve, rather themselves. Our nation is spiraling out of control, with great deficits, lack of moral standing, and rising unemployment numbers. It's sad how quickly something like this can happen to a nation. My friends, it would only get worse under liberal leadership. We can turn the tides, and we will.

March 4th could change history forever. It could be a milestone to show that Republicans and Independents from all over the nation are tired of the same old Washington and are ready for change. I'm ready to bring that change, and a heavy dose of it.

I ask for your vote in the upcoming primary. Together, we can make America great!




Around the same time, Former President George HW Bush holds a rally with Congressman Conaway near Houston, Texas...

My friends, there is one candidate in this race whom I admire and respect. He has the passion, leadership capabilities, and commitment to serve as our commander in chief. I'm a big supporter of Mitt Romney, and have been from the getgo. I ask you all to vote for him on March 4th, and let's get America going again!
- George HW Bush



In Indiana, a teenager named Isaac hopes that on his birthday, March 4th, his candidate will clinch the nomination. His eyes are glued to the TV to see if Romney pulls it off...

We are now reporting that Senator Jeff Bingaman from the state of New Mexico has begun planning a challenge to President Obama for the Democratic nomination. He has reportedly hired several notable Democratic strategists, and has apparently scheduled events in Virginia, Illinois, and Colorado in the coming days, all three being lead-off states.
