I can't help but feel like Bush perfectly captured, epitomized, and reflected the anti-terrorist, flag-rallying hysteria of the '00s. Maybe it's because I wasn't around for Reagan.

Conjecture and circumstance have convinced me that Hillary Clinton was likely behind it.

So much BS has happened since he was still on this distraction that I had actually completely forgotten about it 'til now.

Oh the arrogance of this thread haha. Who couldn't beat Hillary.

Bernie Sanders, evidently. That guy must suck.
5  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: How does Hillary Clinton's concession rank among historic GE concessions? on: August 30, 2017, 07:02:49 pm
LOL- Outside of Republican wet dreams, Hillary did not have a "meltdown." The campaign actually knew it was in trouble when it massively increased spending in WI and MI the week before the election and sent Obama to MI. The rank and file were more surprised than campaign HQ- but not I. If anything, Republicans are the ones who've had a meltdown over being denied their precious chance to see an election night concession... Which frankly is the only vindication needed of the decision not to give one.

Her behavior on election night says otherwise though.

Remember, she was 2 hours late for her concession speech in the morning - why if she wasn't inconsolable? She was in her hotel so it wasn't traffic. And she can't blame she was writing a concession speech because she had all night and morning to do so (Romney wrote his on the fly as well and was able to concede that night).

All reports indicate that the campaign thought they were going to win. Senate Republicans sent the media a list of things Hillary needed to do appease Senate Republicans. The fact the Clinton Campaign not only went dark for the media, but also to the DNC indicates they were in complete shock.

On election night, once Florida started going Trump's way, all the pundits said "She doesn't need Florida." Once they start the "candidate doesn't need X" talk then crap is not going as expected.

Actually I'll be fair to Hillary on this - in her book, "What Happened," if she admits why she didn't do the concession I'll be impressed. I think she'll admit she didn't want to concede under the glass ceiling/on top of the blue map of the USA, and that she planned to challenge the results. I don't expect her to entirely honest about her physical reaction (at the most, she will admit she was shocked) but I don't expect her to.

You live up to the label of Trump supporter, I'll at least give you that.

Hagrid is not really a leftist.

Clinton supporter.

I love how they always claim people are sexist against Hillary then go on to attack any woman that does not abide by the code.

This election has really opened my eyes to the nature of people - both Republicans and Democrats (one thing that amazed me was how similarly Democrats and Republicans reacted to Trump curb stomping them).

(I attack people of all genders who were stupid enough to vote for someone other than Hillary. Love you! <3)

The fact that this imbecile thinks crying over losing a video game and crying over losing election are the same thing says everything. I'm glad he comes from such cushiness that the winner of an election doesn't matter, but not everyone has that luxury. Although it seems clear that pointing out just how much so many people have to lose under President Trump would go right over this moron's head. I suppose these folks wouldn't really count as "real Americans" anyway. Roll Eyes

F-cking pinhead.

Hillary winning back whitemen!

The GOP will never win again!

I love how you are listing those reasons as if you know for a fact that they are true. You literally have no idea. But its Hillary so just assume the worst I guess. Maybe she/her team didn't think conceding at 3 AM ET was a good time considering most people wouldn't even be up to see it?

Why was she an hour late to her concession speech in the morning after the election then? Traffic jam? LOL.

(Nope - she was still at the hotel, as I said, she was either inconsolable or sedated. No other explanation)

Everyone should just come to you for insider info. You seem to know it all! (All while providing zero evidence to back up your claims) Anyway, I'm done entertaining your trolling. Bye Smiley

Surely you must realize that this is almost always the degree to which Hillary Clinton is unfairly treated...

Elizabeth Warren is polling worse because she's a woman. I hope people realize that. But by all means, queue the other justifications.
13  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: How does Hillary Clinton's concession rank among historic GE concessions? on: August 18, 2017, 01:15:41 am
I get some solace knowing that history will so very clearly vindicate her. In 50 years people will look back and ask "how the f-ck did the country get this decision so wrong?"

And I'm even more sure that people will be able to see the sexism, misogyny, double standards, and false equivalence for exactly what it was.
14  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: How does Hillary Clinton's concession rank among historic GE concessions? on: August 17, 2017, 01:10:04 pm
I'm a bit biased, but I think it was probably one of the most dignified and graceful things I've ever seen in American politics.

I mean, Hillary polled better this far out from the 2016 Democratic Primaries, right?

A choice between two options will almost inevitably deviate into a horserace these days if the media wants it to.
16  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Trump approval ratings thread 1.1 on: August 16, 2017, 12:18:41 pm
Sadly, Trump knows what he's doing with his response. He is playing right into what a lot of righties already believe. "He did condemn the neo-Nazis, but the media just doesn't hear it. Good for him for calling out those crazy left BLM thugs too."
17  About this Site / The Atlas / Re: Mass-delete old posts on: August 15, 2017, 03:35:59 pm
Donald Trump became president. You're really concerned that you were once a conservative/libertarian when you were 14 years old? I think we're entering the era where this sh-t isn't going to matter, friend.

Although I guess I can see why leftist purity might be getting you down. And I never use the word "leftist."

I got nothing. You people honestly suck. Just look at what you did.

19  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Was Hillary right? on: August 14, 2017, 09:30:28 pm
Lol, remember when it took years for the mainstream narrative to shift too "oops, Mitt Romney was kind of right?"

If he was prophetic, Hillary was literally all-knowing. Though it shouldn't have taken much to know that this is exactly how Trump's presidency would have gone.
20  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Trump reelection campaign releases first tv ad on: August 13, 2017, 10:47:57 pm
He doesn't list any of his actual accomplishments, this ad is just Trump victimizing himself and listing a few things that he can't really take credit for.

For some reason this ad really ticked me off. It made me legit peeved. I am starting to lose my patience with Trump.

He was supposed to be a  master negotiator - the greatest deal maker of our time. There's no one to blame but himself. He has a ton of leverage but refuses to use it. Trump couldn't negotiate getting a Big Mac with no pickles.

Do I regret voting for Trump? No, because the only other option for me was Ted Cruz, but Cruz was done by the time the CA primaries happened and Cruz had no path to 270 electoral votes anyway.

On one hand though, I have NO clue on why Trump is called an authoritarian because he is anything but.

No one to blame but himself? What about the imbeciles who voted to put him in power?
21  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Day after attack, Trump re-election campaign launches attack ad on enemies on: August 13, 2017, 09:42:49 pm
I'm so unbelievably disappointed in Trump. I thought he'd act like a president and stop with the constant partisan attacks. But no, he won't stop.

... why on earth did you think this??
22  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / U.S. Presidential Election Results / Re: Describe a Hilary voter with a negative opinion of Obama on: August 13, 2017, 09:33:18 pm
Someone who predicted correctly in the Democratic primaries that 2009-2010 would be relatively squandered under a would-be President Obama.

Or, you know... me. Though not so much anymore. Trump has done wonders for my opinion of 44.
23  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Rank Trump 1-45 (Aug. 2017) on: August 12, 2017, 05:19:53 pm
My fear is that he will realize his presidency is irredeemable, so he'll aim to be the best at being the worst. If he deliberately seeks out notoriety/villainy for his legacy, knowing full-well that he'll never have a chance at being remembered fondly, he'll resort to crazy sh**t all in the name of being "someone" in the history books.

Is he selfish enough to nuke North Korea and accept the consequences when they retaliate...? Just maybe. We already have enough proof that he's not a good man. Kinda scary.
24  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Which candidates will only run if they think they have a good shot at winning? on: August 11, 2017, 07:37:00 pm
The older candidates who've already been through the ringer won't go for it again unless they see a non-negligible opening. I think this applies to all of Sanders, Biden, and Clinton.

Count people like Joe and Hillary out at your own peril, though. If the field turns into a bit of a clown car with no clear qualified front-runner like 2016 did for the GOP, expect calls for a veteran with gravitas to seriously consider entering the race. It happened when Romney flirted with a third run, and while I think it's clear now that there was no way to stop Trump's movement, Romney being in the race would have changed everything. If we've got a bunch of candidates polling around 12% into the fall of 2019, a Clinton candidacy would not be a sure bet to lose... she could attract a faithful core following of around 20%-25% nationally, which might be enough to win some of the early states and gain serious momentum.

People would be pissed and it would be much closer than her 2016 blowout against Sanders, but elections aren't supposed to be easy. Wink
25  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Anti-Communist, anti-SJW Democrats need to form a new party on: August 11, 2017, 07:28:10 pm
I concur. I wouldn't want to identify as a Democrat if its membership contained a sizeable slice of people who are actually against standing up for basic social justice. These people need to leave ASAP. Good riddance.
