hahaha still no Liberal votes

A single Liberal vote now. I think that's even sadder.

I doubt he'll do better than 2014.

Oh, probably not. Like I said, he'll likely get almost exactly the same result he got in 2014; a close loss. But there's always the possibility that he could win. Love is an awful campaigner, and now she has a record he can attack, plus presidential turnout (and no Romney) means that there will be more Dem-leaning voters. Freshman incumbency only goes so far.

I'm going to Montreal next spring (my first out of US trip), so Montreal.

Huh, I assumed it would be thrown to Congress, like other perfect tie elections.

Quote
Democrat Doug Owens is gearing up for a second run for Congress in Utah's 4th Congressional District.
 
Owens announced he was filing the paperwork to be a Congressional candidate on his Facebook page this morning.
 
In his announcement, Owens brought up his father's time in Congress as an inspiration for his second run.
 
"I learned from watching my father's career in public service that listening is more than talking and that you can always answer to the people you represent - not a political party or special interests in Washington."
 
Owens lost to Love in 2014 by less than 5,000 votes despite being outspent by more than 5 to 1. Love spent and raised more than $5.1 million to Owens' $866,000.
 
He's going to have another uphill financial battle in 2016. Love's most recent FEC filing shows she pulled in $539,000 in donations during the last quarter, giving her more than $618,000 in her war chest.

My guess is that with the presidential turnout, he'll get a very similar percentage of votes as he did in 2014, but he could surprise everyone and win.

Governor: Cuomo, just Cuomo.
Senator: Menendez and Feinstein.

Dang coastal elites. We landlocked chumps can't get to your cities easily, so we can't judge either one's superiority or inferiority.
34  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Rate the Presidents, Installment #44: Barack Obama on: July 21, 2015, 01:08:27 am
Decent president, too centrist and accommodating for my taste, but obviously a nice guy personally and he seems to be trying his best. And much of what he's done is good, just not all of it. I'm glad he's in office rather than McCain or Romney (or any of the GOP jokers running in 2016).

Wes Clark, what are you doing, you're not even relevant anymore.
36  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Started from the bottom, now I'm here on: July 19, 2015, 11:24:14 pm
So was he banned or something? I heard about that on the "The Atlas" subforum.
37  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: 1964 Election (The Hearse at Monticello) on: July 19, 2015, 11:22:45 pm
So has the voted closed? Because if it has.... hahahahaha.
38  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: How Many Terms Does the Second Coming of Feingold Serve? on: July 19, 2015, 10:55:45 pm
Probably 2 terms or so, but he may run for President in 2020 if the Dems lose next year.

That would be my guess as well, though I'm not sure if he would run for president even then.
39  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Will Clinton use Obama in the general election? on: July 19, 2015, 05:39:59 pm
Obama is a solidly decent president (I'm not willing to call him one of the greatest), whereas Dubya is one of the worst. Plus near the end of his presidency, Obama is still fairly well-liked by the public and by his base. Bush was and is not. It'd be foolish to keep Obama out of the campaign, and even more foolish to drag Bush in.

I could see Tulsi Gabbard becoming the VP and perhaps President eventually, and she's Hindu.
41  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Rate the Presidents, Installment #43: George W. Bush on: July 19, 2015, 04:45:10 pm
An incompetent who failed at almost every aspect of the presidency, and was controlled in some measure by his bloodthirsty advisers.
42  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Rate the Presidents, Installment #42: Bill Clinton on: July 18, 2015, 02:18:25 pm
Terrible in terms of personal behavior, terrible on a few issues, but alright on a few others. Plus he ended the reign of Reagan-Bush, so 3 stars.
43  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: 1964 Election (The Hearse at Monticello) on: July 18, 2015, 12:00:34 pm
Hey Goldwater guys, you already got rid of LBJ, there's no need to be voting in droves for Goldwater anymore.
44  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: AIPAC creates group to lobby against the Iran Deal on: July 18, 2015, 01:28:07 am
Hopefully all the defeated Democratic ex-Senators will remind incumbent Democratic Senators what can happen to them if they oppose AIPAC.

But very few lawmakers actually oppose AIPAC (and the idea of lawmakers being taught to fear an interest group is a bit worrisome in itself).

Randolph actually sounds really cool and I like his policies.
46  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Should people born outside the US be allowed to become POTUS? on: July 18, 2015, 12:59:07 am
Yes, because it's an outdated rule that was probably intended to ensure that a foreigner couldn't be elected and turn the presidency into a monarchy or whatever.

No, I don't think people would be ready, unless it's a white guy who spent all but his very early childhood in America. Though theoretically, William Shatner or Leonard Nimoy could have been elected, since they're very popular American icons.

Born and raised in America, and never have left its borders (though I'm going to Montreal next year).

Meh, 3.
48  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: 1964 Primaries (The Hearse at Monticello) on: July 17, 2015, 08:55:55 pm
Yay, LBJ and Goldwater are the nominees in 1964. How original... Roll Eyes

I was hoping for either Smith or Fong for the American Party; at least that's far different than what happened in real life.

Though someone could still vote for Humphrey unless the poll is already closed.

Herman Cain. Trump and the Pokemon Master Herman Cain, what's not to love?

Cmon, lets vote for Fong! (rhyme intended)
