Hmmm.  Mittens who oh who can you use?
Perry will need to take him down to have any chance. However, if the last debate was any sign of things to come than any Perry attack on Cain would backfire badly.

Why are the other Democrats leading while Warren trails?
The only 2 other Dems they tested were Patrick and a Kennedy. They are both far better known than Warren is. Give her time.

It worked for Bennett in CO.

Who I'd rather have as a Senator: Schumer
Who fits more closely with my politics: Schumer
Who I like better personality-wise: Schumer (I like his style)
Who would be a better Presidential Candidate: Cuomo by miles
Who would be a better Governor: Cuomo, especially working with a Republican state senate. Schumer would try to steamroll them, Cuomo is more subtle and more effective.

Also, Schumer is not going to run in 2016. He's a Senate lifer.

57  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Why don't Democrats try and purify their party of moderates? on: September 21, 2011, 04:55:40 pm
Talk of the Republican "purifying" is gross overstatement. In the great "purifying" year of 2010 only Republican congressional incumbents to lose primaries were Bob Inglis and Lisa Murkowski. One of them was a guy who went wobbly in one of the most conservative districts in the country and the other was borderline mentally retarded person appointed to Senate by her corrupt father. I guess I can be generous and count that last-minute party-switching whore Griffith. So that's three! 3! What a massacre!
Mike Castle wasn't an incumbent for the seat he was running for but he should be included in this. That was by far the most insane one.

I'm more excited about her than I've been for a candidate since '08. She's great.

I think it's slightly ahead of Maine as the state is more suburban. Maine has more Republicans elected, but those Republicans are barely Republicans.

Neither could be won by a conservative candidate.  

Paul LePage is pretty much a fire breathing conservative, and yet he won in Maine. Granted the Democrats ran a bad campaign, but he isn't exactly unpopular as a Governor there.
He won with 38% of the vote.

Just heard that African American turnout is at 2008 levels.  This will be very close.
lol, good trolling.

many Jews who say Israel is the main reason for there vote, are really saying marriage redefinition but it wasn't a listed choice (and other doesn't accomplish anything, but voting for your second reason does) (look at 90% of the Orthodox Jews who are voting for Turner based on Israel also say in the same statement the marriage but they are to afraid to mention it straight up)
In addition the 6% of jews who say other I can almost guarantee that there biggest issue was marriage redefinition.

I am very concerned for you and the level at which you seem to obsess over gays getting married. Perhaps you could use a vacation?

He is gay.
figures a person who thinks anyone who is against this sacrilege is a bigot would also automatically jump to this conclusion.

If you want the reason here it is

here's a quote from Jewish tradition (which I follow and believe so if you want to understand where I;) God did not decree (happened way before the flood but ) the flood until man started writing marriage documents to other men.

notice there just was a hurricane in NY and my community had 3 deaths out of (I think) 4 deaths in the state.

Now assuming Jewish tradition is a given, logically how can I come to any other conclusion but to fight it strongly.

(What I wrote above is less then the cliff notes version of my position but it should suffice)
are you trolling us?

He sounded like a Republican. But I guess that was the point.

Yes. About time the dems start pushing back against the crazies.

Out of the two, easily Clinton.

Can he just give the speech to the Senate if Boehner rejects his request?
68  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: NY-09, Special Election Thread on: June 17, 2011, 12:19:45 am
this seat is going the wrong way and could eventually go republican. Obama did 10 points worse than Al Gore in 2000 in this district.
Lieberman being on the ticket played a big part in that.

Super Bowl hero warns of 'anarchy' if NY approves gay marriage


Former New York Giants receiver David Tyree's celebrated catch in the closing seconds of Super Bowl XLII was pivotal to his team's victory. Now out of football, he is trying to claim a last-minute win over another foe -- same-sex marriage.
Strahan > Tyree

After a 4 hour conference Skelos said no decision has been made on whether to allow the vote and the Senate Republicans will meet again tomorrow.

The Assembly will vote on the bill today.

holy sh**t this is actually going to happen

The Senate seats weren't shored up in redistricting because McDonnell vetoed the maps.

Twitter is saying Sen. Alesi will vote yes. 2 more needed if true.
74  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: NYS Marriage Equality 3 Steps Closer on: June 13, 2011, 02:58:26 pm
So there's only a week left for a vote to happen.

What are the odds Skelos actually brings it up for a vote?

Surprised at a few names not on that list.
