Is his 9-9-9 plan realistic though? I'm convinced Romney will win it now barring Perry becoming competent.

I think Cain will be given another chance...but he has to tone it down.  Inflammatory remarks are unpresidential, and the GOP doesn't nominate inflammatory candidates.

Cain has a 0% of winning the nomination.

Even if Perry and Romney implode each other and Huntsman comes up too short in votes to qualify?

2000 and 2004 were rigged in plain sight. 1988 was stolen by The Media.

The Media needs to stick to reporting news and keep its right-wing opinions to itself.

The media stole the elections in 1992, 1996, and 2008 probably 1976 come to think of it as well.

How does the media steal elections?
3255  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Presidential Election Trends / Re: Are we ever going to have a president born in the 1950's? on: September 28, 2011, 11:08:44 am
If Romney wins in 2012, he will be reelected in 2016. All presidents who defeated an incumbent have gone on to serve full terms.  In 2020, the youngest "50's kids" would be 61--pretty old to be president. 

Carter? Benjamin Harrison?

Carter isn't a good example, he was running against Nixon's ghost, not Ford.  As for Benjamin Harrison, I am referring to only post-WWII elections.

Here's another relationship that will blow your mind - no President with a "J" in his name has ever served two full terms.

Well, I am only referring to the post-Jacksonian era. Jackson and the five preceding Presidents were all Js, and four of them including Jackson himself served two full terms. But ever since, the letter has been cursed.

And in case you cite William Jefferson Clinton - I'm only referring to first and last names.

Same with "P", "Q", "X", and "Z", except with no caveats limiting it to the post-Jacksonian era.  Though, I'm not sure if there have been *any* presidents with "Q" or "X" anyway.


John Quincy Adams and Richard Nixon.

3257  Election Archive / 2012 Elections / Re: Ron Paul: the most talked about "ignored" candidate ever? on: September 28, 2011, 10:32:01 am
Ok, here's a take on the Paulspiracy:

Quote from: Doug Wead
The Conspiracy Against Ron Paul
 
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. My experience in the White House leads me to believe that a secret is currency that is quickly spent. Some conspiracy theories have thousands of people in large organizations, operating with extraordinary discipline, keeping secrets for hundreds of years, a mathematical impossibility in my opinion.

Having said that, my lifetime of studying history informs me that conspiracies do happen and usually when a group of people feel threatened. And in case you were wondering, Ron Paul, the presidential candidate, is very likely the subject of a conspiracy. He is the man who has opened that door on the Federal Reserve. The partial audit he prompted revealed that close to $16 trillion was doled out to Euro-American insiders and their corporations in 2008 alone. That is more than the entire national debt. It is a tax on every American and unless you are getting billions of that money yourself, you ought to be outraged and grateful to Ron Paul for figuring this all out.

It is no accident that the media ignored Ron Paulís upset showing at the Ames Straw Poll. It was so obvious to the whole nation that we laughed when Jon Stewart joked about it. It is no accident that in one of the early debates a director at MSNBC was picked up screaming into Chris Matthews earpiece, ďDonít go to Ron Paul, donít go to Ron Paul,Ē even though it was a health related question and Ron Paul was a medical doctor. On Monday night, in the CNN debate, Wolf Blitzer asked numerous candidates about the idea of auditing the Federal Reserve but not Ron Paul who wrote the New York Times bestseller on the subject and introduced the bill in Congress that sparked the recent partial audit. Nor is it accidental that it was called a Tea Party event and the ďfather of the Tea PartyĒ wasnít acknowledged as such.

Blitzer raised expectations at the beginning of the debate saying that ďI will try my best to make sure that each candidate is getting his or her fair share of the questions and answering time.Ē He then proceeded to give Rick Perry 21 opportunities, Mitt Romney 13, Michelle Bachman 11. Ron Paul was given nine. (In the CNN presidential poll released the day before, Ron Paul was shown third in the presidential race, behind Perry and Romney, beating Bachman who was down six points.)
 
To give you an idea of how this sort of thing works, let me offer an historical example from the other side of the ideological spectrum, from the left. In 1934 Upton Sinclair ran for governor of California. Most students had read his novel, The Jungle, which exposed the corruption and health hazards of the American meat processing industry. Sinclair was a popular and compelling figure. The nation was in the throes of the Great Depression and the people of California liked his ideas. He stunned the Democrat Party establishment by winning the nomination and it was likely that he would be elected governor in the general election.
 
The conspiracy to stop Mr. Sinclair was organized by a California oligarchy, a small group of wealthy businessmen who feared losing control of the California governorís mansion and all the money it represented. Besides, Sinclair was a socialist and had once run for congress on the Socialist Party ticket. The conspirators arranged for a ďProgressiveĒ to run as a third party candidate to split Sinclairís vote. They helped fund the campaign and poured money into the rival Republican but it didnít stop there. They launched a full court press. The famous preacher Aimee Semple McPherson, unused to attention from such prominent Californians, was enlisted and persuaded to use her pulpit to preach to thousands about the dangers of Upton Sinclair and his crazy Socialist ideas.

This secret conspiracy only became known because it involved President Franklin D. Roosevelt and his records survived. Candidate Sinclair made the long journey across the country to Hyde Park where he met with FDR, the chief Democrat, and often the target of accusations of socialism himself. Sinclair explained his situation and asked the leader of his Party for help. He left Hyde Park convinced that Roosevelt would soon publicly endorse him. But we now know that the California oligarchy had already covered that base. Roosevelt was offered a proposal from the California Cabal. They promised that the Republican candidate, if elected governor, would not oppose FDRís New Deal in their State. In return, FDR would withhold any endorsement of the Democrat ticket. Unknown to Sinclair, the deal was struck. Upton Sinclair went down to defeat. A Republican was elected. The oligarchy ruled.
 
Now, this story is instructive on two counts. It shows that conspiracies do indeed take place, they can involve the highest elected officials in the land, and they almost always involve money and private corporations. In this case, with Ron Paul, we are talking about sums of money that stagger the imagination. Wonder why your house isnít worth as much? Wonder why your IRA and retirement accounts are diminished? Wonder why milk cost more and bread cost more? And wonder where all that money has gone?

It is in the pockets of people and corporations who run this country and their business partners and friends in Europe. They donít care about left or right, Democrat or Republican, they prosper under both. They donít care about creationism or evolution. They care about money. Remember, this is, and this has always been, a game of Monopoly. And they have been cheating. And Ron Paul has caught them.

Yep. Even if everyone else dropped out, he'd still get ignored. Luckily, he has his loyal fanbase. Also, he probably has the most online ads (other than Obama himself)

What does it say about the GOP that governor with a good record (and good hair) and the only candidate with foreign policy experience is so rejected by the party because he is a "moderate"....ooooooh evil! must be shunned!

Perry has good hair tooo.

Perry has foreign policy experience?
No but he does have good hair.

Because I see that Santorum thing everywhere.

He's a bully, even though he supposably hates bullies. He's a misogynist, he ruined a man's reputation, and has depraved fetishes.

Horrible Person.

But he did start the whole It Gets Better thing, so I'll commend him for that.
