1  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2014 Senatorial Election Polls / Re: CO: Quinnipiac: Udall (D) leading by 1 on: April 23, 2014, 11:54:48 pm
Ask me a half a year ago, and tell me this could be a competitive race, and I would've told you "lol no". Wow has time changed.
2  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Three Biggest Issues Why You Don't Vote For the Other Party on: April 23, 2014, 11:43:33 pm
1. I am deeply anti-union, a center base for the Democratic Party in most states are unions.
2. Obamacare moves healthcare in the wrong direction.
3. I'm not an internationalist on foreign policy, as the Democrats seem to be.

I'm sure have a lot of reasons not to vote Republican as well.
3  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Mark Dayton vs. Scott Walker on: April 23, 2014, 11:39:47 pm
Under Dayton, Minnesota's economy has improved and more rights have been extended to more people, while Walker is a union-busting man whose policies helped run Wisconsin's economy downwards compared to the country as a whole.

Not even a close contest, comparing their records, Dayton beats Walker.
Call me when he signs a right to work law.

No, call me when he signs that law Tongue
4  Forum Community / Forum Community Election Match-ups / Re: Modified make a map between you and the previous two posters.... on: April 23, 2014, 11:16:59 pm



Congressman Maxwell (R-LA)/Senator TJ in Wisco (R-WI) - 49.6%, 288 EV's
Former Senator Malcolm X (D-OH)/Former Attorney General Ben (D-VA) - 45.8%, 250 EV's
Former Congressman TNF (G-KY)/Former Congressman SWE (G-NY) - 3.5%, 0 EV's
Others - 1.1%, 0 EV's

In a strange electoral year, Libertarian-lite Congressman Maxwell from Louisiana, a rarity in the state, managed to swipe the nomination. Smartly, he decided to negate Former Senator Malcolm X's Ohio home state advantage by picking Former Governor of Ohio and Current Senator of Wisconsin TJ In Wisco for his Vice President. Malcolm tried to remedy this by picking Former Attorney General and Former Governor Ben from Virginia, who was a shoe-in to win the state, but made the ticket too moderate, and inspired a run from Former Democratic Congressman TNF to run on a green ticket and take a lot of union support away from him. This allowed Maxwell to defeat Malcolm in his home state.

A Paul isn't a Reagan fan? Colour me shocked.

Is he wrong though? Paul noted Reagan's job creation record as a positive.

Rand Paul is 100% correct. Sadly, certain truths are not at all acceptable in Republican primaries.

Isn't Singer the guy who people criticize for making movies that only appeal to twelve year old boys?

You may be thinking of Brett Ratner.

I honestly forgot that they were different humans.

As speculated,  US Pardon Attorney Ronald Rodgers, has resigned due to insubordination with the rumored plan.

Thanks Obama

Other Surrogates

Chief of Staff Andy Card



"I am thoroughly excited for this campaign. Allen's run a solutions-based, substance based campaign, and I am proud of the work they have done. They have earned my endorsement. Other people on the field I have seen I have been less impressed with, but obviously it's better to talk about what is good than what is bad. "

January 11th - Media Appearances for George Allen
January 12th - Barnstorming in Southern New Hampshire
January 13th, 14th - Chief of Staff duties for President Bush



Commentator Pat Buchanan



"Whatever disagreements I have with Senator Allen, it does not matter. That is not the most pressing issue in my mind. The most pressing issue to me is the Life movement. We need to protect life wherever we are, and what Allen has shown me is that he is willing to do so. Iowa voters show him with a strong lead, and that, to me, is the reason."

Governor Craig Benson



"You can't tax your way to prosperity. My fellow New Hampshirites, Senator George Allen has fought his hardest to get your tax dollars back in your pocket, and we have a choice in this primary: we have establishment candidates running on their empty records, or we have a man running on conservative accomplishments. I don't think it's a choice for me!"

Mary Burke's name recognition has jumped, and it doesn't seem her numbers have budged too much. This was always going to be a close race.

"Activist Justices have changed our country for the worse. We need justices that will respect the constitution.

"I've met manufacturing workers in Iowa, and I see America changing in the wrong direction. With China and other countries lowering wages, we are losing our edge ahead of the rest of the world in terms of our economy. We have to make a change: and that's where my plan to utterly slash regulations for these companies and lower the tax burden on job creators. Supply side economics allows wealth to trickle down, and the people at the bottom profit."

"We have a government that overtaxes and overspends. The waste of our government is going to consume us all if we don't do the necessary things we need to do. Democrats don't understand it, and Republicans are shamefully cowardly to do much about it. However, we have a Republican who totally understands the problems of the future, and that man is George Allen. Reforming Social Security, cutting taxes to make them flat, cleaning out the code, he has a plan that will create jobs and put America on the path toward fiscal solvency, something we have pushed back for way too long."

Television Ad: A Model for Leadership
Large Ad buy in all the states up to February 10th, 2004

"Iowans for LIFE recently endorsed George Allen's record on Life issues, calling him 'a model leader'. His record in Virginia is looked to as a model for future Governors of the state, reforming education, prison sentences, and balancing the budget. His leadership in the Senate on those issues puts him on the top of Conservative ratings. He's the premier choice for this election.

I'm George Allen, and I approve this message."

New Surrogates:



"George Allen and I are two different kind of Republicans. However, I am someone who values good results, and as a leader, Allen has gotten very good results in the state of Virginia. He doesn't talk about it much on the campaign trail, but he has the ability to get things through on a bipartisan basis: His dedication to research needed to grow our economy is one thing I believe that both parties can jump on board with. America needs an R&D revolution, and the only candidate I've seen who really puts that idea forward is George Allen"

January 11th, 12th - Congressional Duties
January 13th, 14th - Barnstorming in New Castle County, Delaware



"George Allen's campaign platform has a lot of plaques that, If I remember correctly, are pretty similar to my own when I was running back in 1988. Reforming welfare so we can ween people off of it and into jobs, reforming social security so that we can keep it solvent for years to come, and cutting taxes to make a flat rate. However, these ideas have a lot more traction in todays party, and we have a leader who is capable of expressing these ideas far better than I. George Allen will be a capable President and he has my endorsement!"

I agree with PiT, this seems like a small change that probably won't cost much, but it's always good to get a cost check.

22  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: What would the upsides and downsides be of Tim Kaine as VP choice in 2016? on: April 22, 2014, 11:35:26 pm
If Clinton chooses to take on a Vice-Presidential nominee from Virginia, it'll be T-Mac. Which is why she shouldn't select a Virginian, now that I think of it.

McAuliffe is pretty toxic - I think Clinton is smart enough not to pick him, but If I'm wrong, then Republicans could definitely take the White House.
23  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Obama wants to privatize the Tennessee Valley Authority on: April 22, 2014, 09:03:21 pm
I may have to move Obama to neutral. If he's planning to start privatizing this and free people sentenced to drug possession (as it seems he may do), then he's moving in the right direction.
24  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: What would the upsides and downsides be of Tim Kaine as VP choice in 2016? on: April 22, 2014, 08:11:17 pm
It's a dull and awful pick, but it does very little damage: Tim Kaine is basically a blank slate.

Democrats have to hope that Clinton picks someone more exciting, but if it really looks like a landslide, then he's fine I suppose.
25  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: Which Democrat is more competitive against Rick Scott? on: April 22, 2014, 07:20:01 pm
Crist may only lead by 7, but check the same polls, Rich trails by 8. A 15 point gap is nothing to shrug about.
