1  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Trump bans transgenders from military service on: Today at 02:04:02 pm
Honestly, Donald Trump is a piece of sh-t and anyone who voted for him is a stupid f-ck. I don't even care. Anyone with half a brain could have seen the bullsh-t of the last six months coming, and if you actually like what he's done with and to the presidency, there's categorically something wrong with you.
2  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: What is your preferred Democratic ticket? on: July 25, 2017, 12:21:46 pm

I had always hoped that he would be the choice in 2016. I think he has some qualities she doesn't that would help balance the ticket: "straight talk," working class appeal, humour, ability to connect... I think he'd have very effectively been able to take the fight to Trump.

If not Clinton, I like the idea of Biden/Klobuchar, Biden/Warren, Klobuchar/someone old... I dunno.

Pence would be easier to beat and would not so disgustingly corrode the foundations of free and fair democracy.

"Outside of Sanders"...?

Sanders is weak, weak, weak too.
6  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Who was more hated by the opposition? on: July 18, 2017, 05:00:53 pm
If we're talking really genuine and intense hatred, I have to concede that it's gotta be Trump. But that's only because genuine, thinking people who are being objective could pretty much use any negative adjective to describe him and have it be accurate.
7  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: 2016 if Hillary were male on: July 15, 2017, 10:56:21 am
So much about how we respond to Hillary Clinton would be different, and so many of her big life choices would have been different too, that it's really just impossible to switch her gender on a dime for some sort of hypothetical. Goes without saying that she would have faced fewer obstacles. She benefits in some ways by being a woman, sure. But net-net, the obstacles trump the benefits.

Does that mean that this hypothetical person wins in 2016? Maybe not. On the flipside, it's also possible this person would have become the governor of Arkansas and been elected president in 1992, because he would have been less guarded and more at ease talking to people and showing his personality to press.

So...
8  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / U.S. Presidential Election Results / Re: Least divisive of the last 5 Presidential elections? on: July 12, 2017, 08:27:47 pm
2016 was only divisive because one of the major party candidates was literally and unapologetically a proud-in-his-ignorance racist. It didn't have to be.
9  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Hillary's Moment - did we get it all wrong? on: July 12, 2017, 08:24:06 pm
Hillary should have won it in 2008. 2004 was too soon and she was too damaged of a political figure after Benghazi and the e-mail controversy.

You make the mistake of thinking people didn't trust/like Hillary in 2016 because of her "e-mails" or "Benghazi," lol. They didn't like her because they felt in their hearts that she was an over-ambitious harpy. The faux scandals gave them something to latch onto publicly that could seemingly legitimize their position. But if it couldn't be Benghazi or e-mails, it would've just been something else. There would have been a slew of other bullsh-t in 2004 not named e-mails but still equally as potent. And that's because the trajectory of the e-mail story was more a symptom of her being disliked than an actual cause.

11  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Hillary's Moment - did we get it all wrong? on: July 12, 2017, 11:06:56 am
Hillary was certainly the strongest campaigner she's ever been between the couple days before New Hampshire 2008 and her concession speech that June. By far.

I also think it's rather compelling to suggest that she would have made better use of the congressional majorities than Obama did in the first two years of that term. On the flipside, many Obama primary voters probably would have acted just as rotten as Sanders voters did had she actually won the nomination, so that would have been quite challenging.

But yes, I'll say it over and over: Hillary's time was 2009-2017. Obama would have fared well as a successor in this environment, and in fact would have been a better president with more years under his belt.

13  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Atlas posters, who is, at this moment, your preferred prospective candidate? on: July 08, 2017, 11:02:52 am
Hillary Clinton.

Though Biden and Klobuchar are top choices for sure. I'll support any Democrat (other than Bernie Sanders) over Trump though. But again, if Sanders is the nominee, I go Green.
14  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Trump approval ratings thread 1.1 on: July 05, 2017, 12:03:39 pm
I guess these things happen when The Media supports everything you do.
The Media doesn't like Trump. Most members of the media are Democrats.

Yes, billionaires who are owners or majority shareholders in media companies are notoriously liberal Democrats. Roll Eyes

If the media reports on a team that hasn't scored a run all year as having a lousy offense, do they have a bias against the local team or are they just reporting a disaster in the making? Now apply that to the presidency and get it through your skull that he is a walking dumpster fire on every conceivable level. He is indefensible. For anyone with common sense of a toad that is. Join the club of those who surpass that level.

Your whining about the media is pathetic, tired, and baseless. Grow up.

And that's directed it pretty much a third of the Forum, not just Hopper.

Are you surprised they think this way? For almost two years they got comfortable with the media's fabrication that Hillary Clinton was just as bad. For every legitimately horrible thing Trump did, they dragged up tired bullish-t to slam her with too.

The media has been irresponsible, but hilariously not at all in the way the Trumpists like to claim.
15  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Hillary Clinton vs Remaining republicans on: July 05, 2017, 11:56:13 am
The collective wisdom only misjudged Trump. These maps are pretty good for the other Republicans.

Yah no this was before hillary FBI investigation so Rubio and Kasich  would have won by at least 5 points more then I predicted here

Trump made inroads precisely because he is proud of being an ignorant racist who plays dirty and doesn't apologize. He mostly talks like the people and makes simple white folk feel good about beating their chests. None of Kasich or Rubio or Cruz would have inspired that intensity.

Kasich and Rubio's strengths were basically Romney's strengths, except Romney was even more of a reasonable statesman. There's a reason he couldn't break into the Rust Belt. He was a mainline politician. Kasich and Rubio both would have been stuck angling for the do-or-die path of Florida, Ohio, Virginia, plus one. And it's extremely easy to see that fall short.

Donald Trump.
17  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Who is the most to blame for Hillary Clinton's loss? on: June 17, 2017, 04:35:18 pm
The people of the United States. Her loss represents a collective failure of the country.
18  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Donald Trump vs. Bernie Sanders on: June 14, 2017, 07:39:51 pm
Easily Trump. Bernie Sanders had not one negative ad run against him. And he has no idea how to take attacks in stride when he does.

Kirsten Gillibrand. 

She's a lawyer from a family of lawyers.  Also, she's tired, boring, and stale.

yeah, yeah, yeah, I know, she has worked dilligently as a US senator, she has sucked all the right dick, she served on all the right committees, and she has sponsored some fairly important legislation, but why apply the Peter Principle at the first opportunity? 

I'd probably vote to re-elect her as US senator were I a resident of New York, but I seriously doubt I could support her in a primary election for US president.

And yes, I'd probably also say that if you held a gun to my head.  At least I hope I would, because it's the truth.

This is not how the Democrats are going to win the presidency:  Hey Democrats, what if you had a gun pointing at your head, whom would you nominate?



Posts like there are why I won't stop talking about sexism.

Now to answer the OP, Hillary Clinton (normal).

I look forward to 2020 if only because it could help prove what a strong candidate Hillary actually was.
