Weber is a total waste of DNA for using Wellstone's funeral against the Democrats.

Unless Barbara Lee gets the nomination, there would be no point in having such a conservative VP.

LOL at NY voting for Bush.

Any Republican presidential candidate will not be hurt in any way for his/her continued support for the Iraq war

Futher evidence that this guy is a Republican troll.

Maybe another account from DWTL?

Pelosi wouldn't have a chance in hell of being elected President, or being Speaker of the House, which she is currently scheming.

Good one.

The thread might be a little cruel but I would like to add this discussion to it...

Which former Preisdent could make it to a healthy 100? With life expectancy growing, Carter or Bush might have a decent shot.

I'm thinking President George W. Bush might be a 100 year old former President. He is 60 years old and in perfect health.

Carter and George HW Bush seem more likely, since they already made it to 82.

What's weird is that Cuomo only did slightly better than Hevasi.

What's the point of having the Massachusetts legislature so heavily controlled by Democrats if it passes stuff like this?

Perhaps because they feel that judges shouldn't be making law?

This is an issue about rights and equality.  This is WHAT THE COURTS ARE FOR.       
The problem is that not everyone agrees with judicial activism.

Well, some people, like Governor Schwarzenegger, don't like activist legislators to legislate from the legislature.
25809  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Lynch may run against Sununu after all on: January 04, 2007, 12:37:19 pm
Well, time to get started "Santorumizing" Sununu so that he'll go down in flames no matter who runs. Clearly a pro-Iraq war, anti-stem cell research phone jammer is out of touch with New Hampshire values.
25810  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Bush now claims executive right to open mail without a warrant on: January 04, 2007, 12:18:49 pm
This President has zero respect for the law, and must be impeached.

Quote
President Bush has quietly claimed sweeping new powers to open Americans' mail without a judge's warrant, the Daily News has learned.

The President asserted his new authority when he signed a postal reform bill into law on Dec. 20. Bush then issued a "signing statement" that declared his right to open people's mail under emergency conditions.

That claim is contrary to existing law and contradicted the bill he had just signed, say experts who have reviewed it.

25811  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re: McCain's funk on: January 04, 2007, 12:02:19 am
His stance on the Iraq war is a huge strike against him.

You hope Wink. Voters will be looking for more in presidential candidates as to whether they support the Iraq war or not. One issue of many for them to consider in 2008, albeit an immensely important one

A word of caution, which I elaborated on in another thread, an overwhelming majority of Connecticut voters opposed the Iraq war, as of November 2006, yet they still re-elected Joe Lieberman. Only those who strongly opposed it broke heavily in Lamont's favor

Democrats should do their best to tie McCain, as a Republican senator, in with aiding and abetting Bush's incompetence

Quote
And I think Americans will be looking for a fresh face in 2008.

Maybe Wink

Only warmongers write off the Iraq war as "just one issue".

25813  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: MA: Legislators Set on Banning Gay Marriage on: January 03, 2007, 10:56:02 pm
Wow, this will accomplish so much when it fails, and Massachusetts Democrats  have some legislators to defeat in the primary.
25814  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: minimum annual income? on: January 03, 2007, 10:53:27 pm
Maybe to make this idea sound more acceptable, the government would give Joe only a certain fraction, maybe 50% or 60% of the shortfall from the minimum level.
25815  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re: John Edwards for President. on: January 03, 2007, 10:42:05 pm


As governor of Texas, Bush would never have won against Gore had that election been held four or eight years later at a time of war like we are in now.  In fact, it would never have been even close. 

Total BS. The media would have killed Gore for failing to prevent 9/11.
25816  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re: McCain's funk on: January 03, 2007, 10:40:36 pm
The problem for the Republicans is that their other possibilities are less attractive to the Republican command structure.

You've got to admire this honesty:

Go Kemp yourself.

Kemp should get an award for being part of a ticket that lost his home state by 1.8 million votes.

Barbara Boxer

I know someone who didn't vote for her because she was too conservative.
25821  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2000 U.S. Presidential Election Results / Re: come to think of it,... on: January 02, 2007, 12:56:31 am
Considering Bush was up 60-28 in 1999 and up by landslide proportions through much of early to mid 2000 (when the economy was indisputably booming, too), and it wasn't due to Gore's lack of name recognition, I'd say there were factors at work that aren't easily recognizable.

While that 60-28 poll was just crazy, Bush did consistantly lead Gore, and would have won both the popular and electoral vote if it hadn't been for the DWI story and some intense campaigning by Gore at the end. He went without sleep for a couple of days and just campaigned through the night in Florida.

I'm sure the FL legislature could find a way. Try drawing districts like this one:

Of course we're intolerant towards powerful batsh**t crazy warmongers who are intent on destroying this planet. I suppose you wished that the Catholic Centrist party was even more tolerant towards Hitler than they already were.
25824  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Presidential Election Trends / Re: If the GOP were to win every county in the U.S. but one... on: January 01, 2007, 09:46:41 pm
No county really strikes me as being terribly similar to San Francisco... other far-left cities like Seattle are in counties with their suburbs. Alameda has Oakland, which should swing it to the GOP if they can win places like the Bronx and DC...

Oakland is to the left of San Francisco. New York (county), NY is similiar to San Francisco.
25825  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Interesting map on: January 01, 2007, 09:31:05 pm
I would agree that the California Republican party is far whackier than the NY Republican party.
