Why not ask Obama to debate the Repubs on the bill? He's been a strong debater in the past (sans round one vs Mitt) and could easily show how the ACA is superior to any of the replacement attempts.

Or would Republicans just go completely off script and attack Obama for being Obama?

An Obama vs Ryan debate would be a sight to behold. I remember back in 2009/10 when Obama went to the Congressional GOP's retreat to do a Q&A on the ACA. He wiped the floor with every member.

Chick Fil A isn't fast food, it's family

A family that doesn't care if LGBT people in Africa are executed, and in fact happily supports organizations that fought for African countries like Uganda. Thus, if you eat at that "family", you are (indirectly) responsible for literally killing people in that country.

Hey what we NOT gonna do, is disrespect Chick Fil A like that. As long as I can get myself a crispy-ass #1 with no pickles, they can have whatever social views they want.

This is a FF decision, but what have we sunk to as a nation that ignoring the direct orders of the Commander-in-Chief is cause for celebration?

Umm yeah those are terrible, but that's not the establishment...

Nina Turner does need to fade into obscurity though. She was of the least politically talented people to endorse Sanders, and she has absolutely 0 chance of ever winning anything ever again.

Cuellar votes with Trump 65.9% of the time but is in a D+9 district. These colors don't run.

Is this poll junk? Because most polls that show Trump or other Republicans doing well are considered junk!
This poll doesn't "show Trump or other Republicans doing well" so that should answer your question

If Jason Kander wasn't doing things to try to raise his profile, including things that strongly hint at presidential ambition like trips to Iowa and New Hampshire, then no one would be talking about him either. 

Yeah, the guy is just a former state SoS who lost a race he was considered by many to have in a bag. There's no way he can try seriously in 2020.

Lolwut. When was MO ever considered to be "in the bag" for the DSCC? Kander took a race that was on nobody's radar, and with a stellar campaign made it an actual horse-race.  And then he ended up running ahead of Clinton by 16 points, only losing by less than 3 points. He'd be a Senator right now if not for how unpopular HRC was in Missouri.

Why should we care about what California thinks? It's a crappy, state, it screws over poor people, and it's given us the worst of Silicon Valley.

Are you okay?

He's making Marty look sane and reasonable by comparison

What? I'm perfectly fine.

You're acting like you came home from a long day of work in the coal mines to find your bubbly wife Edith in bed with the elitist, out-of-the-mainstream state of California.

For Georgia-- Stacey Abrams the race is Safe R if Stacey Evans is the nominee is Likely R.

Georgia is just not voting in a black woman with no kids or husband who is advocating for the removal of the Stone Mountain carving.

This. The party really f^cked up not getting Carter to run again. And I wouldn't say Deal is popular, especially after he signed Campus Carry earlier this Spring. At best, no one really cares about him either way.
22  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Steve Bullock is the guy for 2020. on: August 17, 2017, 02:05:37 pm
Have any of you posters commenting about how overhyped Bullock is actually watched one of his speeches, interviews, or ads? Honestly of all the non-Biden/Sanders candidates, he and Jason Kander exude the most charisma and authenticity. And that's what sunk the Democratic Party last year. It wasn't that we were "too liberal" or "too centrist".

It was that we pushed a candidate that didn't inspire and people couldn't connect to. We need a nominee who can go out and give voters someone that they feel actually genuinely cares about their problems. Look back at the most successful Presidents of the last 50 years. Each of them either inspired or connected to the electorate. We need someone we can believe in. And Bullock might be that guy.

And if you Bullock-cynics are right and he won't appeal to the national Democratic base then he'll definitely drop out by the day after the New Hampshire primary in February. Montana's filing deadline isn't until mid-March. He can still run for Senate AND President.

Lee Atwater didn't lie, folks. This isn't a huge revealation for a party that's always exploited racial fears for votes.

And the Democratic Party hasn't done the same as well over the past 4 years, demonizing white voters? White privilege, cis privilege?

Both of these parties exploit for racial fears.

Barack Obama's mother was white. Was that an issue for black voters?

Black people are protective of black women. Some may think of her husband as a tool or a interloper.

I seriously think you are just trolling now.
He has a point, though it's completely flipped. It's more frowned upon for black MEN to date/marry white women than the other way around. Many black women take issue with it, as if white women are robbing them of "good black men."
