1  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: AL Supreme Court orders probate judges not to license same sex marriages on: Today at 02:09:36 am
Now they ordered a stop again. I guess they don't understand federal supremacy. Alabama deserves all the ridicule they get.
YES! YES! Rally against the unjust activist judges! Show the supreme court the ridicule they'll receive if they rule in favor of SSM!!!



On what legal grounds specifically do you disagree with the federal district judge's decision?
On the grounds that the state need only subsidize man woman relationships, as they are most beneficial to the state’s interest in procreation. The courts are destroying the instution of marriage with this horrible activism.
You can't be serious. Go take a lap.

Ted Cruz For America: A New Direction


"It is with great honor and humility that today I announce to you my candidacy for the Presidency of the United States.

Our country is at a crossroads. Will we continue on the same path of the last 8 years? A path of regulation crushing innovation and a weak foreign policy that capitulates to radical Islamic terrorists and refuses to take the fight to them. Or will we go in a New Direction? One of balanced budgets and an America that again leads the world.




The Republican Party has failed to stand up for its values. Values that the you, the American people, share. We have allowed the liberal left to dictate policy and have failed to defend Liberty and the Constitution. That time is over. It is time for bold leadership and true vision. We must run a populist campaign standing for the hardworking people of America.

But we cannot simply rely on attacking President Obama and his failed policies. We must present ideas of our own. Talk is cheap. Among my fellows who’ve stood up against Democrats, that’s great. But when have you been willing to stand against Republicans? Do you have the courage to admit when your party is wrong?



Which is why in the coming months in this campaign I shall introduce my vision for a better and stronger America. A health care plan that repeals and replaces Obamacare with a free market solution that does not impede on the liberties of the people. A tax reform plan that simplifies the tax code and lowers rates over all.

We can bring America back. We can improve the lives of every American regardless of race, gender, or socio-economic status. We can move in a New Direction.

Thank you. God bless you. And God bless the United States of America!"

Scott Walker has singlehandedly ruined America. The Left must be up in arms and MSNBC must have their highest ratings in years!

Clinton earns support in the low 80s against all three among Likely Democratic Voters. She edges Walker by three points among unaffiliateds but has slightly larger leads against Bush and Carson.
She's gonna get upwards of 90% of Democrats & Obama lost indies in 2012. Plus, WTH tests likely voters 2 years from Election Day?

The Pubs deserve to get DWS to help even the score. I mean the Pubs had Murdock, Akin, O'Donnell and Angle, and all the Pubs have gotten so far is Braley. It's just not fair. Quinn should get the Dem nomination to run against Kirk too. And Grayson in Florida. Thanks.

You guys got Brent Brasby in Iowa and John Walsh in Montana.
Neither of them were crazy, just ran awful campaigns.

I love how Republicans think so lowly of brown people that they believe they'll just vote for someone cause they look kind of like them.
Because Democrats didn't do that with Obama...

Blacks voted overwhelmingly for Obama because he is a Democrat, not because he is black.
Though it did help with enthusiasm. We didn't vote for him because he's black. We voted, period, because he was black. Regardless of color wed've voted for him, being black just made us more likely to vote.

10  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: OH-Sen: Cincinnati Councilman P.G. Sittenfeld likely running on: February 26, 2015, 02:05:28 am
Ted Strickland is probably going to end up as the Tommy Thompson of 2016, an over the hill former governor who is running more as a reflection of their state party's horrible bench and will probably lose by somewhere in the mid single digits


The Ohio Democrats don't really have a horrible bench, though.
Who else do they have? Sittenfield is only known locally, and tim Ryan probably will never leave the house

From Wikipedia's page on the 2016 OH senate election:

John Boccieri, former U.S. Representative
Jennifer Brunner, Judge on the Ohio Tenth District Court of Appeals, former Ohio Secretary of State and candidate for the U.S. Senate in 2010
Michael B. Coleman, Mayor of Columbus
Richard Cordray, Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and former Ohio Attorney General
Connie Pillich, State Representative and nominee for Ohio State Treasurer in 2014
Betty Sutton, Administrator of the Saint Lawrence Seaway Development Corporation and former U.S. Representative
Nan Whaley, Mayor of Dayton
Bob Hagan, Member of the Ohio School Board of Education and former State Representative
Joyce Beatty, U.S. Representative
Nina Turner, State Senator and nominee for Ohio Secretary of State in 2014


I don't want Nina Turner anywhere near higher office.

Schweitzer if he overcame is penchant for putting his foot in his mouth, Warren, and as of late (as in last couple hours) Dan Malloy.

Based on that interview alone I'd say Hell Yeah.

Key takeaway from that article: "According to people who spoke with her, when she sensed Obama was considering replacing her as chair in 2013, she began to line up supporters to suggest the move was both anti-woman and anti-Semitic."


Don't forget the reference to her joking about buying a house in New Hampshire... Eager to keep her power and grabbing for more, and doing in such a transparent, disgusting way. Not someone I'd want as a Senator. I'd definitely have Murphy or Kathy Castor instead.

Lots of politicians are equally eager for power, DWS is just more open about it, maybe. It's not like Martin O'Malley wasn't thinking of the presidency back in 2010 or earlier. I don't see the virtue of false modesty, or whom it helps.

If Obama didn't want DWS, she wouldn't be there, period. I mean, Christina Romer sad she felt like a piece of meat in the WH and there was never any serious backlash. The notion that she's strong armed Obama into keeping her as DNC chair is absurd... That's not the kind of person Obama is.
Honestly, I don't think he cared. Electing a sitting elected official to head a party is a dumb idea anyway.

18  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Christie under criminal investigation on: February 06, 2015, 07:43:50 pm
Yeah, as one of the few posters who hasn't entirely written off Christie's chances, I've started to become a lot less certain about his odds. The excuse of not being involved in the wrongdoing of your staff can only work so many times.
Unless your name is Barack Obama. This excuse has seemed to work fairly well for him.
19  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: How would democrats attack Kasich if he gets the nomination? on: February 06, 2015, 07:37:59 pm
He's a racist and a sexist. Same as they'll attack any other Republican.
And he's white. Don't forget that he's white. Freakin white people. Give 'em 43 Presidents and they think they deserve the White House.

No. Rand Paul is the best candidate to appeal to minorities because he actually takes positions on issues important to us and talks to us about them.

Rand just might have the most savvy team since Obama '08.
