Does anyone really think the Iraqis were involved in 9/11?

A decent amount of Republicans, actually.

We're all Hillary voters now.

I imagine we'll have close to full results in Nevada by the time counting starts in South Carolina. Should be a fun full day of elections! Cheesy

Seriously?

That's lame I scheduled off work at 6:00PM thinking the Nevada Caucuses wouldn't start until later like Iowa.

Christ dammit.

If this somehow happens, expect massive social unrest.  Democrat's will hate this, Trump supporters will hate this, even people who really like the new president will find this deeply problematic.

Expect massive downballot losses for the GOP as the electorate takes their anger out on a party that they rightfully see as undermining their Democracy.  There may be a GOP president, but he'll be stuck with a Democratic congress.  In all likelyhood, enough statehouses flip to the Democrats that the Republicans won't be able to pull this off again.

In 2018, a large effort to primary the people who instigated this begins on the right.  While some state legislators slip through the witch hunt, the governors go down in flames.  The Democrats win big again, but its not nearly as bloody as 2016 was.

In 2020, Trump runs as a third party and will get more of the vote than the incumbent president.  This will be the worst electoral performance for the incumbent president since 1912, when Teddy Roosevelt relegated Taft to third place.  The Democrat wins the election handily.

By pulling this stunt, the Republicans have lost the confidence of the American people.  It will take them a generation to fully recover.

This, but there would also likely be a Constitutional amendment to prevent this from happening again in the future.

Carson and either Bush or Rubio, depending on placement.

ITT: Somebody who ignored a document titled "Bin Laden Determined to attack the US" is the President who "Kept America Safe".

And yes, the Neo-Conservatives actively manipulated the intelligence to lie to the American people and convince them there was a threat from Iraq, when they knew full there wasn't. They wanted it as part of their plan to realign the Middle East and establish American geo-political supremacy well into the 21'st Century.

Only if Jeb were the nominee. So, no, he won't.

Nowhere as bad as the Hillary-Splaining to young women voters

I know right?

Stuff like this combined with Hillary's idea that even though her entire political career is based upon her husband's last name she shouldn't have to take any responsibility for the things he did are pushing me to Sanders.

Aw, too bad. Equality isn't all sunshine and roses.

Either get on board with the abolition movement or deal with it.
112  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Black NYT columnist: Stop Bernie-Splaining to Black Voters on: February 11, 2016, 12:57:26 pm
The fact that this columnist is using a variant of the term 'mansplaining' takes away a lot of credibility.

This seems like a losing strategy to me.

Registration isn't what makes something a red state or a blue state.

This.

I wouldn't be surprised if the only reason so many people there register as independent is so they can vote in either primary.

If he doesn't finish as the top establishment candidate, he'll have to.  He's practically been living in NH for months now and has banked everything on the state.

My favorite character in the Star Wars universe (haven't seen The Force Awakens).

121  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Des Moines Register Editorial: Something smells in the Democratic Party on: February 04, 2016, 04:02:58 pm
But then they'd lose their guaranteed first place on the primary calendar. NH would fight for it for sure. It's still in IA's interest to keep the caucus, no matter how stupid and broken it is.

But at the very least can the Democrats use the much more reasonable GOP system in the caucus? Where you just vote instead of this over complicated process where we don't even know the actual vote totals.
122  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: What is the best time to start an Iowa watch party? on: January 31, 2016, 09:42:57 pm
You will want to start around 7:45 PM Eastern time and I personally think MSNBC has the best coverage. They have Chuck Todd, Steve Kornacki, and Steve Schmidt as excellent analysts. Not to mention they easily have the coolest theme music.
123  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Post-Selzer- Which Republican wins the Iowa caucus? on: January 31, 2016, 01:42:27 am
Trump will win Iowa. Cruz comes close 2nd.
124  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: If Trump wins Iowa... on: January 31, 2016, 12:29:04 am
Cruz: Surge in SC as backlash against a "Trump coronation" (a la Gingrich 2012 against the Romney coronation), ride the wave of momentum to victories in the SEC states

That's a totally inaccurate comparison.

Buzzfeed gonna Buzz.

Nobody who actually votes cares about this internet drama.
