76  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: DMR Endorsements: Clinton and Rubio on: January 23, 2016, 06:16:18 pm
It was a pretty big deal in 2012 when they endorsed Romney.
77  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: When does DMR typically endorse? on: January 23, 2016, 06:00:58 pm
Clinton and Rubio were endorsed.
78  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Trump vs Sanders: Who wins PA? on: January 23, 2016, 05:06:24 pm
ITT: Clinton hacks suggesting that PA (which they insist is always unwinnable for any Republican because inelasticity!) would suddenly somehow vote for Trump/Palin over a Democrat who is polling as well as or better than Hillary in most polls.

Sanders would be a terrible candidate in the general. Sure, the early numbers look really good for Sanders, but there is a lot of opposition research that Trump could destroy him with. Plus, I'm not confident that a frail old man who allows a microphone to be snatched from his hands is at all up to the task of winning. Turnout would be low with such an unappealing match up and low turnout benefits Republicans.

Oh, I don't know. Maybe he allowed BLM to take the microphone because he can tolerate opposing viewpoints, unlike you Shillary hacks?

Tolerating opposing points of view doesn't mean you allow people to snatch the microphone from you. Only uncivilized people jump on the stage and snatch microphones. No candidate should condone that sort of behavior.

Trump would win it easily.

That would be funny for some candidate, but for Jeb it comes off as pathetic.
83  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Bernie Sanders does not seem to understand how the federal judiciary works on: January 22, 2016, 06:38:04 pm
Most candidates have a litmus test and that really isn't a misunderstanding of the court. What is a misunderstanding is to act as if a case can be overturned at will. I think the tweet was more directed at misleading people who really don't understand how the court works.
84  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: National Black Republican Association Endorses Donald J. Trump on: January 22, 2016, 06:03:38 pm
Well, that's five votes in the can for Trump.

Loras is a joke pollster. The Hillary people will be in shock and awe mode once the results come in because they see that she'll finally be sent into retirement. I will accept my chocolates later.

Oh, be quiet, child.

Sanders people are in for a big, hard, painful fall. lol.
87  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Primary Election Polls / Re: SC New Democrats: Clinton 47-Sanders 28 on: January 22, 2016, 11:27:25 am
Sanders is the white candidate, as evidenced by the racial gap in this poll. As long as Clinton heavily carries the black vote, Sanders has no chance. He's struggling with black voters, which is why his campaign is claiming that blacks are "on fire" for him.
88  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Bernie Sanders does not seem to understand how the federal judiciary works on: January 21, 2016, 11:29:54 pm
Sanders tends to say whatever he thinks his people want to hear and that is how his staff maintains his Twitter account as well. No matter how you slice this, the tweet is making a huge promise that cannot at all be guaranteed.
89  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Bernie Sanders does not seem to understand how the federal judiciary works on: January 21, 2016, 11:19:51 pm
That statement wasn't worded that well, but I'm sure he understands how it works. The point is, it's a litmus test for his SCOTUS appointees.
I'm convinced you dig in Sanders' laundry and put his dirty clothes under your pillow when you go to sleep. You are a true stan.

BernieBots are worse than PaulBots.

Sanders supporters are like some sort of weird cult. I've actually read posts from them saying "believe in the magic" and all sorts of weird things. They think Sanders is some sort of supernatural being. Sick.
91  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Bernie Sanders' "rape fantasy" essay on: January 21, 2016, 10:31:22 pm
Doing one's job is a lot different than writing some creepy story.
92  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Bernie Sanders' "rape fantasy" essay on: January 21, 2016, 09:36:46 pm
Look, anyone who doesn't think this will be an issue in a general election is totally delusional. The GOP and the media are going to play wave after wave of this. They're going to make him totally toxic to suburban swing voters. Even conservative minority Democrats (and there are a hell of a lot of them) will think this rape-essay-writing atheist-Jew-socialist who honeymooned in the Soviet Union and admiringly waxed poetic about Fidel Castro on TV is a radical weirdo who they don't want in the White House.

Yeah, Jesus can you imagine?

Unflattering shot of Bernie Sanders, black & white, as an ominous synth drone plays

Sounding uneasy and concerned, a woman reads from the essay.

"A man goes home and masturbates his typical fantasy. A woman on her knees, a woman tied up, a woman abused.

"A woman enjoys intercourse with her man as she fantasizes being raped by 3 men simultaneously.

"The man and woman get dressed up on Sunday and go to Church, or maybe to their 'revolutionary' political meeting."

Full colour, upbeat music, TRUMP with his wife at Thanksgiving dinner or something, all smiling.

TRUMP: "This guy, he wants to rape women. It's disgusting and wrong. I love women. I have a beautiful wife and a beautiful daughter. I think they're terrific."

"Donald Trump. The only candidate who respects women. Make America Great Again."

I can completely see Trump running an ad like that and it would work.

If any other candidate had written this, Republican or Democrat, the Sandernistas would be screaming bloody murder about it.

It's fine to still like Sanders anyway, since he obviously doesn't believe stuff like this anymore and hasn't in a long time, but come on guys, just admit that you're giving Sanders a free pass that you wouldn't give anyone else.
94  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Bernie Sanders' "rape fantasy" essay on: January 21, 2016, 08:20:23 pm
This attack was a dud 6 months ago or whenever when it was tried against Bernie. But to be fair, it's not like you guys have anything else to attack Bernie with.

Meanwhile, no one has really attacked Hillary for her SoS / Clinton Foundation pay to play issues.

It's actually not a dud in a general election. Even having to explain such an essay is quite awkward and distracts from the actual issues.
95  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Bernie Sanders' "rape fantasy" essay on: January 21, 2016, 07:44:05 pm
If a Republican had written an essay like that in any context, the sort of people who support Sanders would be all over it. I think it's odd, but apparently it's okay for most people.

That is truly nuts. She has completely lost her mind.
97  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: The Democratic Party if Sanders loses in a landslide worse than '72/'84.... on: January 20, 2016, 09:17:01 pm
There will most certainly be many "I told you so" statements made, both subtle and direct. Sanders supporters will blame the voting machines, which are owned by Wall Street and produce "evidence" that shows widespread election fraud. Overall, the establishment will pick up the pieces in preparation for 2020 and the very progressive candidates would end up being limited to Kucinich status.

I think we are to the point in the campaign where Sanders is starting to sound like a broken record in his dedication to staying on message, regardless of the question. And of course, when you have little interesting to say beyond a few talking points, your answers don't always end up being the most polished. This is definitely a gaff and is ripe for an attack ad imo.

This exactly. Everything comes back to being about the "establishment" with him.
100  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Sanders now attacking Planned Parenthood and the HRC on: January 20, 2016, 02:48:07 pm
His comment about "establishment" just came off as bitter. He could have just said that not all endorsements are attainable and kept it moving.
