76  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Rush Limbaugh threatens DSCC with defamation lawsuit on: November 10, 2014, 06:55:13 pm
He'll lose that lawsuit, because it's frivolous. You can't sue people for highlight your words.
77  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: So, what happened in FL-2 and NE-2? on: November 10, 2014, 06:52:28 pm
Ashford and Graham were better candidates, and ran good campaigns. There's really no magic answer here.
78  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Cohn: GOP House majority may now be unshakable for a generation on: November 10, 2014, 04:57:07 pm
That's kind of a silly thing to assume, when you consider that Democrats have a chance to win back more than half the gains Republicans made this year, plus win some blue seats that Republicans hold late on in the decade. That might not result in a the House flipping, but the Republicans are more likely to lose seats than gain them in 2016.
79  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: 50% of Republicans support impeaching Obama on: November 08, 2014, 07:09:06 pm
If Congress actually does this, it will only be a popular move among Republicans. Considering that 67 votes is needed to convict, it would be a waste of time, anyway.
80  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: Jerry Brown on: November 08, 2014, 05:33:30 pm
The election was three days ago...why do they have so many outstanding votes?

Because there are lots of votes to count. This is nothing new, it happens every cycle.
81  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: What happened in Vermont? on: November 08, 2014, 04:40:02 pm
Flukes occur and this is one of them.
82  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: Charlie Crist on: November 08, 2014, 04:15:50 pm
He should definitely run in FL-13.
83  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: 2014 Senate results by CD on: November 08, 2014, 04:14:13 pm
Jeff Sessions won AL-7, so that obviously means it's great pickup opportunity. for Republicans next cycle. /republican logic
84  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: If Republican Controlled States Allocate Electoral Votes Differently on: November 08, 2014, 02:01:21 pm
Still trying to commit a fraud. If a Democrat won the popular vote by something like, 51-47, but Republicans got the most electoral votes and the Presidency, the backlash would be enormous, considering that gerrymandering would be responsible.
85  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Should mid-term and other elections (excl. special elections) ... on: November 07, 2014, 11:10:23 pm
I think it would be best if presidential and congressional elections were held once every 4 years, at the same time. More stability in government would help get things done and midterms create less stability.
86  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Loretta Lynch expected to be named next Attorney General on: November 07, 2014, 10:48:45 pm
I can see Senate Republicans giving her nomination a hard time just to be divisive.
87  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Manchin leaving No Labels over its support for Gardner on: November 07, 2014, 07:58:02 pm
Udall is not more liberal than Gardner is conservative, so their support makes no sense. Gardner sold himself as a non-partisan, pro-choice moderate, but the opposite is true, he's a conservative Republican. I don't blame Manchin.
88  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Political careers that were ended on November 4th on: November 07, 2014, 01:28:26 pm
Tony Strickland
89  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: Who/what is to blame for Charlie Crist's defeat? on: November 07, 2014, 11:02:55 am
Florida's electorate is just more Republican in midterm elections. If Byron Looper was alive, he would have won that election from prison, because Republicans will turn out and vote for anyone.
90  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Should the Democrats just throw the 2016 Presidential election? on: November 07, 2014, 10:59:07 am
Only if you want nuclear war with Iran. If you allow Republicans to win in 2016, we'll end up with another 9/11 and more wars.
91  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Is Maine trending GOP? on: November 07, 2014, 10:52:22 am
No, midterm elections do not represent trends.
92  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Will Mia Love lose in 2016? on: November 07, 2014, 01:13:32 am
Possibly, 50-47 is not a strong win. In 2012, her grasp of local issues was incredibly weak and the district's partisan numbers are less Republican than the 67% that Romney took, which was heavily inflated due to a home state effect of sorts.
93  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Democratic Collapse Among Asians on: November 06, 2014, 11:38:16 am
That's really not going to translate into gains for a presidential nominee, though. Midterm turnout is never a good place to draw conclusions about demographics. At 3% of the electorate, Asian voters can be prone to wide swings between electorates.
94  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: Grimes for Governor? on: November 06, 2014, 10:20:49 am
Considering that Beshear became Governor after losing to McConnell, I think Grimes has a good chance. Democrats did hold the Kentucky House, so there is a good chance that they can still compete at the state level.
95  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Which new senator is your favorite? on: November 06, 2014, 03:20:47 am
Gary Peters. He's the only one with any sense.
96  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: I WAS WRONG! on: November 04, 2014, 10:50:51 pm
This is how you react, instead of claiming fraud, like Dean Chambers did. There is nothing wrong with being wrong, it's not admitting it that makes for a problem.
97  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: 2014 US Congressional Election Results on: November 04, 2014, 10:42:52 pm
These losses are unfortunate, but at least the GOP doesn't have the trifecta like from 2001 to 2007, that was a disaster.
98  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: 2014 US Congressional Election Results on: November 04, 2014, 10:06:21 pm
Unfortunately for the country, a GOP Senate means massive gridlock and possibly wasted time on impeachment.
99  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Here's what happens when you remind churches not to make political endorsements on: November 04, 2014, 12:35:53 pm
They should have named names of who sent the nasty notes. These sort of stories are pointless without calling people out directly by name.
100  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Standing by my prediction that democrats will gain seats in the senate tomorrow on: November 03, 2014, 08:21:32 pm
I don't go as far as suggesting a gain, but I do think we hold AK, CO and IA.
