76  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Opinion of Ted Cruz's convention speech on: July 20, 2016, 09:57:19 pm
Terrible, terrible guy, but to his credit he has a set of balls unlike Little Marco.
77  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Republican National Convention **live commentary thread** on: July 20, 2016, 09:02:34 pm
I disagree with Cruz on pretty much everything, but I respect him a lot more for that act of political courage.

This. At least Cruz has a pair, unlike Little Marco.

Has ISIS even killed 1% of the number of Americans that al-Qaeda killed? They really are the JV squad.

CSPAN has the order of speakers starting at 7:30 but no specific times

    Nathan Johnson, Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
    Governor Rick Scott (Florida)
    Laura Ingraham, Political Commentator
    "The Trump We Know" Video
    Phil Ruffin, Businessman
    Attorney General Pam Bondi (Florida)

    Michelle Van Etten, Small Business Owner
    State Senator Ralph Alvarado (Kentucky)
    Darrell Scott, Pastor
    Harold Hamm, Continental Resources
    Governor Scott Walker (Wisconsin)
    Lynne Patton, The Eric Trump Foundation

That's disappointing.

McConnell has the nerve to say Obama has been playing politics on Zika??!?

Wow....
81  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Melania Trump caught plagiarizing Michelle Obama's 2008 speech on: July 19, 2016, 01:24:39 pm
The conspiracy theory being sent to me is that they did this on purpose so there would be lots of media coverage showing Melania and Michelle next to each other in order to subliminally put the idea in our heads about her being First Lady. Thoughts?

Could be. I have little doubt that this was intentional,  but I think it was to overshadow the multitude of awful things said at the convention with something relatively benign.

I feel pretty certain that the Trump campaign did this on purpose, knowing the media would pick up on it and make a big deal. That way, they get to play the victim card and whine more about the liberal media trying to take out a woman for standing against Hillary.

And even if it does hurt Trump a little bit, better have the media focusing on this than the content of the rest of the speeches from yesterday, which would hurt Trump a lot more.

Bravo, Trump. He's very good at manipulating the media, and they never see through it.

84  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Woman tries to buy birthday cake for her wife... on: July 18, 2016, 12:19:18 pm
To be fair, this baker is probably poor and trying to become a conservative folk hero. Remember how those pizza restuarant owners in Indiana became millionaires?
85  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Question for Never Trump Republicans.......... on: July 17, 2016, 09:12:44 am
#NeverTrump Republicans should just become Democrats. The reason Trump won the nomination is because most Republican voters agree with the things he says.

Even when Trump loses in November, it's not like those Trump voters are going back into the closet. They're empowered now. They'll nominate Trump again in 2020, or someone like him. The days of McCain/Romney-type nominees are over.

The email thing, but it's going to run its course before November.
87  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Mike Pence: "Smoking doesn't kill" on: July 15, 2016, 06:54:25 pm
From 2001: http://web.archive.org/web/20010415085348/http://mikepence.com/smoke.html
Quote
Time for a quick reality check. Despite the hysteria from the political class and the media, smoking doesn't kill. In fact, 2 out of every three smokers does not die from a smoking related illness and 9 out of ten smokers do not contract lung cancer.

Ladies and gentlemen, the Republican vice presidential candidate. Perfect fit for Trump and his conspiracy theories (and poor math skills).

All of his votes should be retroactively voided and if his vote ever was the deciding one, the platform should be changed.
89  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Justice Ginsburg: Trump would ruin the Supreme Court on: July 13, 2016, 07:53:26 pm
How about this compromise: Ginsburg retires if Republicans promise to confirm whomever Obama appoints to replace her (not Garland).
90  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Bernie Fans Say 'Fart-In' Against Hillary Will Go On on: July 12, 2016, 06:15:31 pm
Honkala (the "coordinator " of this f**king stupid s**t) isn't even a Democrat, nor a Bernie Fan. She was the f**king Green VP last year.

God forbid. What is this election turning into.

A woman is leading this??
91  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Tim Kaine vs Elzabeth Warren on: July 07, 2016, 10:26:26 pm
I'm fine with either. I would probably suggest Kaine if she asked for my advice, but I predict she'll pick Warren.
92  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: See This on Twitter-Now! on: July 06, 2016, 10:45:16 pm
Why does he put Star of David in quotes? Does he think that's an obscure term or something?
93  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Should the Democratic Superdelegates refuse to nominate Clinton? on: July 06, 2016, 10:31:19 am
It was literally less than 24 hours ago that you promised not to Chicken Little anymore...
94  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Hillary Clinton reads 'sigh' from teleprompter on: July 03, 2016, 05:00:35 pm
I've never suggested that someone was a racist or a Nazi sympathizer because of their ethnicity or nationality.

Right, you just support candidates that make outrageous racial/ethnic generalizations. You don't make them yourself.
Have you considered that you can support a candidate without agreeing with everything they say? How do you feel about Democrats saying "white privilege" in a tone dripping with contempt? Isn't that an outrageous racial generalization, considering the experiences of white Americans are more diverse than of any other racial group in this country?

I've never heard any Democrats say white privilege with "a tone dripping with contempt." I mean, I'm sure someone has at some point, but Hillary and the mainstream ones don't. Are you referring to that BET awards speech or something? Or are you arguing that white privilege isn't a real thing?
95  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Hillary Clinton reads 'sigh' from teleprompter on: July 03, 2016, 03:03:56 pm
Uh, my mom taught me when I was like 4 to keep my comments to myself, and I would get slapped when I didn't, not praised for "speaking my mind." Is Donald Trump 4 years old? Does he need a lesson in how words have consequences, the same way first graders do? Honestly not surprised that some white guy from Germany finds bigoted and racist dog whistling funny.
That is one of the most disgusting things I've ever read on this forum.

Bold words for someone like you.

96  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Hillary Clinton reads 'sigh' from teleprompter on: July 03, 2016, 11:12:04 am
I say the word "sigh" all the time instead of actually sighing. Surely I'm not the only one?
97  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Flash poll: If Hillary goes down, who gets the nomination? on: July 02, 2016, 03:26:38 pm
Bernie would only need around 17% of Hillary's delegates, so probably him.

Biden would be the smarter pick though.
98  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Was Donald Trump's tweet anti-Semitic? on: July 02, 2016, 01:47:24 pm
Yes, and it's a pretty brilliant move on Trump's part. The hardcore anti-Semites are going to notice and like it, but it's so subtle that Trump can handwave away any criticism as PC gone amok. It's almost like he's intentionally baiting the left because he knows that most of his base isn't going to think there's anything wrong with it and he can portray the people who notice as loons.
99  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Should Bill Clinton be put on a leash? on: July 01, 2016, 06:21:45 pm
No, obviously not. He'll continue to be a great asset to her campaign over the next 4 months.
100  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Which of these is more likely? on: July 01, 2016, 06:17:14 pm
#6 is the only one that's more than a fringe possibility.

If forced to pick one of the first five, it would have to be #3, though it's not very likely.
