101  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Bernie Sanders hires new black press secretary (who supports BLM) on: August 15, 2015, 04:25:26 pm
This is clearly pandering as already has been said, so I don't need to elaborate. One doesn't win the black vote without having previous experience doing so. Vermont is only 1% Black, which means Sanders has probably encountered very few black voters. When you are an unknown entity to a bloc of voters and only begin to reach out to them when you need their voters, it tends to be a very hard sell.

Blaxicans? Really?

103  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: If Hillary Clinton wins Missouri against any of the Republicans on: August 15, 2015, 12:04:26 pm
Hillary doesn't need Missouri to win, so it's not like it's a big deal if she loses it. It won't be some miracle feat that the Republican carries it, because that is what it is expected. Missouri is not a swing state anymore.

Hillary is quite a formidable opponent. Calling out the entire Republican field is a smart move, because there is always the possibility that someone no one ever predicted could end up with the nomination.
105  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Is Trump the most competent Republican running? on: August 15, 2015, 11:21:59 am
He is, at least when it comes running a primary campaign.
106  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Hillary Clinton email megathread on: August 15, 2015, 11:20:06 am
Considering that Republicans have been extremely prone to crying wolf over anything that Democrats do during this administration, it isn't hard to understand why many people don't think there is anything to this story.
107  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Carson: The number one cause of death for blacks is abortion! on: August 15, 2015, 12:07:16 am
This is a common right-wing, pro-life argument. At one point there were anti-abortion billboards put up in black areas by a pro-life group.
108  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Which fanbase is The Worst on: August 13, 2015, 09:26:52 pm
Republican should have been a choice, because that is a pretty rabid fanbase.
109  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Which fanbase is The Worst on: August 13, 2015, 09:22:48 pm
Sanders. His fanbase includes a lot of conservatives who only want him to win the primary because they hate Hillary.
110  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential General Election Polls / Re: Emerson College: Clinton leads GOP by 2-9, only Sanders with positive favorables on: August 13, 2015, 09:16:12 pm
LOL Democrats are already getting nervous and unskewing every poll.



And considering it was conservatives who created "unskewing", they of all people should know the correct definition.
111  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Some friends of Gore want him to run on: August 13, 2015, 09:14:15 pm
LOL. The Democratic side is such a clown car:

Corrupt, Elitist old hag
Avowed Socialist
Gaffe Machine VP
Former Politician who no one remembers  (Gore)
Confederate Enthusiast
Random, Mediocre governor whose handpicked successor didn't hold the seat
Unknown party switching freak



What is the point in calling her a hag? That has nothing to do with not caring for someone's politics, that's just cheap and pathetic.
112  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Is It TIme for Hillary Clinton to End Her Campaign? on: August 12, 2015, 09:35:55 pm
Not only that, but I believe Obama should resign his office and allow Republicans to select a President of their choice. Elections will only be held once the voters are re-educated to vote the proper way and if they refuse to, they will be sent to prison.
113  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Savage Trump: "BLM would never take away my microphone, Bernie showed weakness" on: August 12, 2015, 06:18:23 pm
For once, he's right. You don't let hecklers take the microphone away from you.

Hate to say it, but I'm also kind of disappointed that Bernie gave in.

Regardless, however, if Bernie did try to apprehend the protesters, he would unfortunately be labeled as 'racist' for doing so.

I don't think he should have worried about be called racist, when people acting like uncivilized morons disrupt your event, you should have security remove them.

And jumping on stage bullying an elderly man doesn't do much to help their cause. That was truly thuggish behavior.

And if Sanders actually gets the nomination, he becomes a corrupt evil, so I really don't see what difference it makes. Republicans believe he would be easier to beat, but that isn't necessarily true if he can manage to run a decent campaign.

No. It was you Hillary hacks who created the myth that Sanders would lose in a 1972-style landslide while Hillary would wipe the floor with Republicans.



I never made a Sanders comparison to McGovern. If I did, you need to produce the post where I said it. I'm waiting.
116  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Primary Election Polls / Re: NH-Boston Herald: It Happened on: August 12, 2015, 10:40:02 am
This is a university poll, from a uni that hasn't polled since '08, whose polling institute is led by the guy who used to run UNH, and whose President is currently Andrew Card. Junk uni, junk poll.

Be prepared to be called a hack for Hillary. Any poll that has Hillary trailing to not to be questioned, otherwise you are just being a hack.
117  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential General Election Polls / Re: MO-PPP: Hillary down by between 7-15 points, Sanders by about the same on: August 12, 2015, 01:08:10 am
A lot of progressives don't like to go on the attack and take the gloves off, so the question is if Sanders is willing to do that and can actually run a strong campaign. That makes a huge difference.
118  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Primary Election Polls / Re: NH-Boston Herald: It Happened on: August 12, 2015, 12:21:50 am
Considering that Sanders is leading Republicans in polling, I don't see why some are excited about this. Granted, I think he could lose due to poor campaigning, but his views don't seem to hurt him in general election polling. If Republicans trail an open socialist, that is not a good sign.

See, people are celebrating in the loosest sense because an actual candidate of substance is doing good and ridding the world of corrupt evil like Hillary

LOL They call the GOP a circus. How stupid does it look for an unknown white governor clapping along with a fringe angry black movement?

Cheesy

Not even a comparison. None of the candidates running for the Democratic nomination are as fringe or cartoonish as the Republican field.

Just playing devil's advocate, but your bias might be showing, bro.  The world gets and respects that you're not a Republican or conservative, but that's admitting you have a bias.  From the point of view of someone more conservative than me, your field could be pretty easily made fun of.  Your front runner is currently involved in an email investigation, your second place person describes himself as a socialist and two of your other candidates who are certain to make the debates a former Republican-turned-Independent-turned-Democrat who literally only talks about the metric system and the only candidate in either party to publicly defend the Confederate flag...

The lower tier candidates don't have a chance at winning, particularly Webb and Chafee. Being a socialist isn't cartoonish, it's just being honest. What is cartoonish is the show Trump is putting on and winning with. There is hardly a candidate in the Democratic field that compares.
121  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Paul: Trump's kids never worked at Pizza Hut on: August 11, 2015, 10:00:00 pm
Considering that Paul probably would not have had that great of a chance at winning the Senate primary had his father not had a high level of name recognition, it's safe to say that Paul's father has been a benefit to him.

123  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential General Election Polls / Re: IA-PPP: Iowa is a tossup on: August 11, 2015, 09:52:39 pm
Hillary absolutely destroyed Jeb Bush at the Urban League. It didn't get talked about a whole lot, but I do think it further damaged his standings by show how weak that he is. She is out there, but at this point, all she needs to do is keep her powder dry and continue to read the Republican field for filth.

As for PPP, I find it odd that Carson is leading while candidates more known that him are behind. I would imagine that he's more generic Republican than the rest of them.
124  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Rand Paul and Abortion on: August 11, 2015, 09:45:03 pm
I'm perplexed why Rand Paul is against abortion.  To the extent his is a libertarian, one would think that he would let the individual decide for herself whether to abort a pregnancy.  I did note that Ron Paul was also pro-life which also seems counter to a libertarian approach. 

For Rand, running in Kentucky as a pro-choicer would be a ticket to defeat, but I wouldn't have thought of Rand Paul as one who would be inclined to take pragmatic approaches to various controversial issues.

I'm curious to see what others think.

Not all Libertarians are pro-abortion. There are folks (like myself) who are both libertarian and have a Biblical worldview which the Paul's do.

Those two views sort of cancel each other out. A lot conservatives like to call themselves libertarian because it sounds good to some voters, but they are really just social conservatives.
125  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential General Election Polls / Re: IA-PPP: Iowa is a tossup on: August 11, 2015, 05:50:16 pm
Hillary will be just fine. If she can lead with those sort of approval numbers, I'm not worried about her winning the general and carrying Iowa.

Do you support her because you support her policies and utter corruption or just because she's a Democrat?

I support her for the utter corruption. She promised to give me a big payoff for voting for her.
