I like Brown but is explanation for voting for Carson is indeed strange Cheesy

I would be quite surprised at this point if Gilibrand didn't run.

Forget Jones, it's Linda Sarsour and Piven who have me laughing.

Linda Sarsour's appearance really discredits the whole event

The CDU will definitely celebrate tonight.

So I'm on my way now to Berlin for the nominating convention for Martin Schulz as a delegate. I wonder how many votes he'll get Cheesy

Why no SPD-DieLinke?
 
 
Linke chairman in Saarland is Oskar Lafontaine who was the SPD leader in the late 90s and then left the party. Until today they hate each others guts.

I wouldn't be so sure of that. Anke Rehlinger seemed to be quite OK with him in a recent interview I saw and I talked with some people from Saarland who said that red-red is a possibility.

I would be quite surprised if there weren't any coalition talks at least.

This is great!

i respect the hell out of schulz but i am not into believing someone who worked in brussels for such a long term can suddenly break away in his home country.

didn't work in countries like egypt, won't work in germany.

but if i would make an educated guess..... gabriel got burn-out, scholz knows he can't win with merkel still on top of the CDU and schulz seemingly wants his 15 minutes in the sunlight.

Schulz is to the right of Gabriel.

All true, but, still a good option for SPD. At least, is there alternative is both a solid liberal and somebody who has not been a part of the government they are trying to replace.

I commend Booker and Gilibrand for their position.

I urge anyone having a position on the conflict to visit the region and then formulate an opinion.

At least one country is able to stop fascism. I'm really relieved and glad!

I'm getting quite a bit nervous I have to admit. Just because Trump being elected would be quite bad for the continued survival of the human race.
12  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Will/Should FBI Director Comey Resign? on: October 28, 2016, 06:23:50 pm
Comey is an obvious threat to the republic. He should resign. But he won't.

Nice to be able to add another stupid f-cking idiot to the old ignore list.

Nice to add another humorless librul to my ignore list.

Comparing Peacecorps and Americorps with the Hitler Youth shows either a complete lack of knowledge or a complete disregard for the victims of the Nazis. Or both.

Although in the 538 podcast they also said that it's a rightwing meme now.

19  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Does Hillary have a body double???!! on: September 13, 2016, 04:39:28 am
We know that in past history( assuming not U.S ) Body doubles have been used before.  She's so old and sick right now that it could be a possible option in cases like the other day at the 9/11 event. I wouldn't put it past the MSM and globalist cabal right now to trick the masses into voting for a half dead president.   

Reminder that many of the Trump supporters on this very forum belong not in the basket of deplorables, but the bin of loonies

Totally agree. But it seems to be getting worse atm...

Today are municipal elections in my home state of Lower Saxony. The AfD result will be particularly interesting. They are pushing quite hard with several big events the last couple of days.

You can follow the results here: http://www.ndr.de/nachrichten/niedersachsen/kommunalwahl_niedersachsen_2016/Kommunalwahl-in-Niedersachsen-Machen-Sie-Ihr-Kreuz,kommunalwahl582.html

As a member for 11 years I tend to say Freedom Party, though you should never underestimate it's willingness to self-destruction.
23  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Clinton/Kaine First Joint Appearance Megathread on: July 23, 2016, 12:41:36 pm
I really have to say I'm very positively suprised.
24  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Is Larry Craig Gay? on: June 15, 2016, 08:13:47 am
He could be bisexual, so this question is not as straightforward as you might think.

Yes bisexuals do exist.
25  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Does the recent gun massacre of 50+ LGBT people in Orlando, Florida... on: June 13, 2016, 09:30:04 am
I think this could have helped him slightly, but because of the way he responded to the events, in the typical insensible and disrespectful narcissistic Trump fashion, it'll probably end up working against him. Some Bernie diehards in my Facebook are now willing to vote for HRC to stop him because of today.


The trouble is, for every Bernie supporter this brings over to Clinton, there's a conservative who hated Trump but now agrees with his blister on terrorism and has decided to support him in the fall.

I mean, look at what Green Line was posting today and tell me that the political conversation around the events of last night would not at least help polarize the country and push people like him back into Trump's orbit. You can't, really.

So who wins?

The end result is likely that this will have little to no impact beyond potential short-term Trump boost by a point or so. May be a some undecideds that answer Trump out of emotional reaction, but settle back to undecided after a few days or weeks of Trump continuing to be himself.

This. And one should never underestimate Trump's ability to do damage to himself.
