HRC Rising

The only thing Hillary Rodham Clinton is rising to is becoming more senile each and every day.

If we want to question mental states, we need to question those who think about Clinton so much that they make mistakes like this. Second, the so-called President can't even remember where his vehicle is, which seems pretty senile to me. Leave Hillary alone.
102  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: What if all 9 Supreme Court Justices were assassinated? on: July 11, 2017, 03:48:12 pm
First off, that is a strange question. Second, such an event would more likely than not have political intent and lead back to someone who wanted to pack the court.

You have to give them credit for pulling out all the stops to win. This is pretty darn good scheming.

When McCaskill wins, I'm sure there will be plenty of posts about how St. Louis "jiggered" the vote to steal the seat. You know what kind of people live there and what they do. In seriousness, McCaskill cannot be written off, because she is a good campaigner and the environment is right for her to win again.
105  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Republicans are going to gain 100 seats on: July 05, 2017, 09:15:59 pm
Second, when it comes down to it, any substantial gains made by Democrats next year will because of Trump and Republican failure, just like 2006.
106  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Republicans are going to gain 100 seats on: July 05, 2017, 09:12:54 pm
That would only happen through massive fraud, which isn't out of the question under Trump.

If you are triggered by an email about stickers, then that is your problem. Get over yourself.

The demagoguery is in the rhetoric about revolution. Aside from that, he has no new ideas and pretty much is all about giving speeches saying the same thing.

With an FBI investigation against his wife and allegations that she threw disabled persons into the street, I don't think that's a sound prediction.
The only people who know or care about that investigation either love him or hate him, and we all know which one of those two camps is larger.

That depends on the outcome of the investigation. If she really put disabled people out on the street and committed loan fraud, that's a big problem.

With an FBI investigation against his wife and allegations that she threw disabled persons into the street, I don't think that's a sound prediction.

There was an FBI investigation against Hillary and allegations that her husband was a rapist, and she still got the nomination.

Considering that outcome of the general election, it's unlikely that anyone under any sort of investigation would be nominated.

The alt-right is going to be outraged about something all the time, so it's not like this really makes a difference or not. I don't see where CNN violated any laws or anything, so there isn't a problem. The poster probably got in trouble with his parents and is trying to make out as if CNN is stalking him to cover for the things that he's posted.
111  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: NYT: California's Far North Deplores 'Tyranny' of the Urban Majority on: July 05, 2017, 10:00:32 am
The how idea that rural areas should get more seats than larger, urban areas makes no sense. The problem is that the Republican legislators that they elect are too conservative to push for more infrastructure for rural areas and are more focused on making statements.
112  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: #CNNblackmail top twitter trend on twitter on: July 05, 2017, 09:50:53 am
Anything that Breitbart says is probably not true.
113  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: MO-SEN 2018: Wagner out on: July 03, 2017, 04:35:06 pm
It's interesting now how Wagner is suddenly some bad candidate that did Republicans a favor by dropping out. That just seems like spin to make the recruitment failure seem better.
114  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: MO-SEN 2018: Wagner likely to enter at some point on: July 03, 2017, 10:24:17 am
Recruitment fail. The coming cycle is not going to be a good one for Republicans.
115  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: CA-21: What makes Valadao so strong? on: June 22, 2017, 01:01:00 pm
Apparently, people in the district believe he is Hispanic even though he is Portuguese. The drought and water is also an issue.
116  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: When will Democrats have the honesty to admit Ossoff was a bad candidate ? on: June 22, 2017, 12:20:48 pm
It's a lie that he got no crossover votes. He wouldn't have received 48% off of Democratic votes alone.

Second, there was third party vote in the presidential election. By percentage,  Ossoff picked up 1%.

In comparison to how the previous Democratic nominee ran, Ossodd ran 10% ahead. It's the downballot number that really shows the swing.
117  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Nancy Pelosi is a huge burden for Dems on: June 22, 2017, 12:13:36 pm
Let's not pretend that whoever the Minority Leader is wouldn't be turned into some crazed, psychotic character that doesn't exist by Republicans. The people in mentioned in this thread would be easily demonized.

Lujan and Castro are Hispanic. Enough said.
Tim Ryan represents a decaying town and would be labeled as a liberal who believes in policies that destroyed manufacturing and coal in the Midwest. Plus, he represents Youngstown, which has a high black population.

With that said, none of these special elections would have turned out differently with another Minority Leader. Even if Pelosi is thrown out, Republicans can still talk about her anyway.

Then how come being compared to Paul Ryan or Mitch McConnell doesn't hurt Republicans?  Someone like Tim Ryan would be far harder for Republicans to attack.  Pelosi is purely a walking caricature of exactly the type of image that Democrats need to move away from.

Republicans are professionals at attacking, it is what they live for. The Pope could be Democratic leader and they'd still find effective attacks.

Liking Pelosi or not isn't the point. It's the fantasy that Republicans will stop attacking Democrats if Pelosi out the way.

I honestly think anyone in Democratic leadership could perform a sacrifice on live TV and you'd stick by them as long as a "SANDERISTA" doesn't get in charge.

Anyway, lifetime contract, please!  She's a joke.

First off, I think you are confusing me with a Republican who still supports Trump after all his antics. Second, it's not a matter of me liking Pelosi, it's a matter of fact. You know that anyone elected Democratic leader is going to be attacked somehow and turned into a super villain.

And at least she's not a rapist like Hastert.

120  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: GOP reopens Hillary Clinton email investigation again on: June 21, 2017, 09:53:15 pm
2.8 million more votes clearly is the reason why this is even being reopened. Even though the popular vote is irrelevant to who actually becomes President, Republicans are still not happy about it and need to punish Hillary Clinton by re-opening a closed investigation. Sore winners are the most bizarre people in the world. You win, yet you stay mad and vengeful.
121  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2018 Gubernatorial Election Polls / Re: CA-UCB: Newsom still leads in the jungle on: June 21, 2017, 07:48:58 pm
Yeah, these D vs. D races aren't politically healthy.  No state should have one-party rule.  I hope to live to see the day where CA votes for a Republican for President and has a GOP state trifecta, and TX elects a Democrat for President and has a Dem state trifecta.


The voters in California choose to elect Democrats. What is unhealthy in Republicans gerrymandering states to create a House majority.
122  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: NV-SEN: Rosen in on: June 21, 2017, 01:45:59 pm
She'll never win. Heller will win in a landslide, because "reasons". /Republican off

Are you malfunctioning?

Just imitating the Republicans on this board. Polls have shown Heller trailing, but they just don't think he'll lose for some unknown reason.

124  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Why Georgia went R on: June 21, 2017, 01:27:20 pm
It's a gerrymandered Republican district. A Republican state Senator said as much.

So why'd you think you'd win it?

Did anyone ever say it was a guaranteed win?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but this comes pretty close, no?

Ossoff will win.

Also pretty sure you were dismissing the polls showing Handel ahead as "fake news".

Based on the independent polling, I said this. CSPPolling is indeed fake, no matter what the outcome of this race is. Clearly, there was a shift between the polling that showed Ossoff leading, but even so, it was never a guaranteed win. It's really not that serious, though. I'm not going to die over Ossoff losing the race.

Did anyone ever say it was a guaranteed win? It was a worth a try. The point is, Handel was not an underdog who won a heavily Democratic district as Republicans are trying to claim. GA-6 is not a Democratic district.
