1  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Which would have more impact? on: Today at 02:22:45 pm
I think a pro-life candidate would be a bigger headache for the Dems than a pro-choice candidate would be for the Republicans, they have more to lose in terms of the female vote.

Christie or Bush, my money is on Christie.
4  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Should anyone GOPer in the current "group" scare the Democrats? on: January 30, 2015, 03:04:08 pm
I would say Christie if anybody. He's moderate enough, a good campaigner, and doesn't get thrown off by attacks and heavy criticism. Over the course of an entire campaign, he could make it interesting.

Paul could too theorhetically, but I don't think the foriegn policy climate is going to be favorable for him.
5  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: What will they even attack Walker on? on: January 30, 2015, 08:59:58 am
He can't be attacked for much record wise, but I don't see him being a big hit with swing voters. Stranger things have happened though

Rockefeller by one hundred thousand million miles.
7  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Did Jindal Peak too Early? on: January 29, 2015, 07:27:53 pm
He's never been a realistic possibility for President. Jindal's politically shallow and kind of looks like Satan with that creepy smile of his; flaws that were on full display in his SOTU response in 2009. Overall gofy politician.
8  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Primary Election Polls / Re: Fox News Poll: Romney leads Paul, Huckabee; Clinton Dominating. on: January 29, 2015, 07:10:39 pm
Bush in 4th? Ouch.
9  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: If Rand Paul fails in 2016... on: January 28, 2015, 05:02:28 pm
I'm guessing he tries again. The GOP will likely be more ideologically aligned with his brand of libertarianism come 2020-2024.
10  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Huckabee complains about "trashy" language from women at Fox News on: January 28, 2015, 12:48:29 am
Huckabee is really playing to the "get off my lawn!" wing of the party. 95% chance he runs, 100% chance he fails miserably ala Pat Robertson in 1988.
11  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Primary Election Polls / Re: Rasmussen: Hillary below 60% nationally on: January 27, 2015, 12:24:27 pm
6% for a sitting VP of a popular (with Democrats at least) administration? That has to be some kind of record
12  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: 2016 Presidential Election on: January 26, 2015, 08:51:46 pm
Romney, without hesitation or enthusiasm.
13  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Christie/Fiorina vs. Clinton/Kaine on: January 26, 2015, 08:42:19 pm


Christie - 275
Clinton - 263

A very close election, Ohio decides. I think Christie has more political skill, so I gave him the edge.
14  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of Chris Christie on: January 26, 2015, 02:56:03 pm
He seems like the sort of Republican who can play the center and get things done. Not particularly an ideas guy though.

I'm a 25 year old white high school graduate with no stocks, mortgage, retirement savings, health insurance, credit, or children....I have a 12$/hr job in health insurance data entry.

Then why the f##k are you a Republican

Taxes, health care, foriegn policy, and my stronge distaste for social engineering and identity politics.

W was over 50% approval as of June 2014. I think it's fair to say that most people have gotten over it.

It's Ted Cruz and the other braindead reactionaries that the media showcases as somehow representative of the GOP as a whole that harms the party nationally.

In that scenario a "good economy" and a "bad economy" are practically indistinguishble. I voted for no economy as that means I can probably stay home and watch television.
18  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Republican Iowa dropouts on: January 25, 2015, 10:11:53 pm
Huckabee and Santorum are both completely screwed if they don't win Iowa.
19  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Sarah Palin: "Of course" interested in 2016 White House bid on: January 24, 2015, 01:27:00 pm
Palin would be brutalized in a primary, not even remotely concerned with her being a candidate.
20  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Why all the Castro hype? on: January 23, 2015, 02:23:27 pm
Relative to the rest of the TXDP bench, they are probably underrated.

Wendy Davis, anyone?
21  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Which Best Represents Hillary's Margin of Victory (Primary) on: January 23, 2015, 08:59:24 am
I haven't seen anyone mention Biden yet. If he chooses to run, he'll have the closest proximity to Obama and will be best position to take some credit for the economy (something Clinton can't realistically do). It doesn't show in the polls now, but Clinton v Biden could get interesting.
22  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Summary of political beliefs on: January 23, 2015, 12:47:43 am
I'm a Rudy Giuliani Republican. Very conservative on foreign policy and national security issues, centrist on the economy, centrist to center-left on cultural issues.
23  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: 2016: Cuomo vs Paul on: January 22, 2015, 08:25:20 pm


Paul 317
Cuomo 221

The left stays home for Cuomo and and a lot of millennials jump ship.
24  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Santorum: Cruz & Paul are "bomb throwers" with no accomplishments on: January 22, 2015, 01:41:16 pm
Not that Santorum has any room to talk about "bomb throwing", but he's 100% right on Ted Cruz and half right on Paul.
25  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Lindsey Graham announces creation of "testing the waters" committee on: January 21, 2015, 09:38:03 pm
No chance of winning, but I like the idea as a theoretical. The center-right will rise again!
