76  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: NJ-SEN 2018: Could Bob Menendez lose reelection? on: January 17, 2017, 02:11:48 pm
Menendez will be safe because of Trump.

Fair or not, if the San Diego portion grows more than the Orange County portion, this district will move further in San Diego County. It's not really a matter of partisanship, but one of actual population growth.

He already looks terrible, so there isn't much further downhill he can go. With that said, he's not going to treat the office as a job, so his stress level will be zero. Vacationing and tweeting is a not a struggle.
79  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Counter Sting - O'Keefe caught paying people to violently protest Trump on: January 16, 2017, 10:08:32 pm
That's what he does, he fabricates all of his big scoops.

This man is a victim of the overly politically correct system created by liberals. The fact that charges were filed against him is exactly why Trump won!
81  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: DisruptJ20 on: January 16, 2017, 07:48:48 pm
Oh, how ominous.
82  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: The US liberal establishment promoting left wing ideology yet again on: January 16, 2017, 07:45:59 pm
This sort of whining is becoming incredibly tiresome. Liberal this, left wing that. Give it a rest.
83  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Does Nancy Pelosi have to go? on: January 16, 2017, 07:31:27 pm
Most people don't even know who Nancy Pelosi is and it's not like control of Congress ever hinges on who will be Speaker. Besides, the selection of the Speaker relies a lot on who knows how to lead and negotiate in the caucus. Experience counts.
84  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Will Sherrod Brown lose next year? on: January 16, 2017, 07:10:19 pm
Brown will win.
85  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Saturday Night Live (not funny) on: January 16, 2017, 01:01:45 am
SNL is going to drive him into the mental institution. He clearly has some serious emotional problems.
86  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Should the US break off diplomatic relations with Ecuador? on: January 15, 2017, 11:19:38 pm
Obviously this is not going to happen under Trump.
87  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Orange County, CA and Elliot County, KY on: January 15, 2017, 10:51:56 pm
Not exactly an anomaly. Both counties have trended away from their traditional political roots in previous cycles.
88  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Could Paul Ryan be in trouble in 2018 if there is a backlash? on: January 13, 2017, 06:45:29 pm
He could definitely have a Portillo Moment. When there is backlash, it's almost always in the Midwest.
89  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Rep. John Lewis "I do not consider the president-elect to be legitimate" on: January 13, 2017, 06:33:32 pm
Trump certainly does lack the legitimacy steaming from the popular vote win, while still being legally elected per archaic but still existing stystem.

The popular vote is meaningless when it comes to legitimacy, and more meaningless than ever given California's bizarre system that drove down GOP turnout massively.

The popular vote is meaningless when it comes to who legally gets elected President, but not to legitimacy. Losing the popular vote by over 3 million is not a ringing endorsement by the public as a whole. Republican turnout wasn't down in California, they just refused to vote for Trump, which is evidenced by seven Republican members of Congress being re-elected even though their districts voted for Clinton.
90  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Rep. John Lewis "I do not consider the president-elect to be legitimate" on: January 13, 2017, 06:25:44 pm
He isn't legitimate, not even remotely. If Trump doesn't like being called illegitimate, he can resign the office and resume running his business.
91  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Russia Today took over C-SPAN for 10 minutes on: January 13, 2017, 12:12:47 pm
Russia's way of doing this
92  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Study: Conservatives are more attractive than liberals on: January 13, 2017, 12:07:47 pm
In the absence of substance, there has to be something trivial to fill the void.
93  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Senate "vote-o-rama" just voted to gut all provisions in the ACA on: January 12, 2017, 10:59:02 pm
You get what you vote for. No more sloth!

You know that goes both ways. Wait until Trump crosses you with something you believe in and hold dear. Maybe then you'll get in touch with your compassion and your humanity.

I don't know what Trump would cross me with or why.

But even if he tries, that is all the more reason to pull one's self up by the bootstraps and not be a general sloth. Why don't the 47% non-contributors do that rather than rely on electoral outcomes?

You sound like a real sociopath

Go to Somalia, where you have no government, pull yourself up by your bootstraps and become successful then come back to us

That poster constant trolls with the same rhetoric over and over again.
94  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: NV-Sen - Global Strategy Group (D): Heller +3 against Unknown Democrat on: January 12, 2017, 04:32:19 pm
Not good for an incumbent.
95  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Cory Booker looking worried on: January 12, 2017, 02:05:36 pm
Being courteous does not mean a person is a good choice for a position. It's his record is why he is being scrutinized, not his home state.
96  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Intel chiefs presented Trump with claims of Russian efforts to compromise him on: January 10, 2017, 07:13:06 pm
The GOP U.S. sure has a great President on its hands.
ftfy

Yeah it would be Sukarno all over again. "Hey can I have a copy to show in cinemas?"
Haha, exactly!

Most of the country didn't vote for this mess, so let the GOP claim him.
97  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Intel chiefs presented Trump with claims of Russian efforts to compromise him on: January 10, 2017, 07:04:52 pm
Golden Showers is trending on Twitter. The GOP sure has a great President on it's hands.
98  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Obama should just declare marital law at this point on: January 09, 2017, 11:50:59 pm
I disagree. The democratic process has been carried out for the election cycle and nothing should infringe upon that. Elections have consequences and those consequences have to be lived with until the next election.
99  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Rating of: Bill Nelson v. Ileana Ros-Lehtinehen on: January 09, 2017, 06:46:26 pm
Likely D, because it's not like she's really a match for any part of the state outside of South Florida.
100  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Trump could win Ohio by 20 points if he runs in 2020 on: January 09, 2017, 06:28:43 pm
Ohio was pretty much a non-factor in 2008 and 2012 as far as being all that decisive, it pretty much just was a cake topper and not much more.

I'm tired of hearing about identity politics when it was Trump who played identity politics from the start of his campaign. He needed to be called out on all of his rhetoric, because it was vile. Plenty of people know he was wrong, but chose to vote for him because he promised jobs. If he doesn't deliver big, his 2016 win in Ohio will be a distant afterthought.

The electoral map certainly is changing and it means being less reliant on the Midwest. New opportunities have to be explored, because nothing stays the same.
