The establishment has always been kind when it comes to race. I just dislike the fact that they aren't conservatives. It amazes me how the conservatives are the ones with racist ties.

Quote
Jack Hunter, Paul's director of new media, who also co-wrote Paul's 2011 book
The Tea Party Goes to Washington, is a former radio shock jock and former member of a neo-Confederate organization, according to a report in the Washington Free Beacon. Hunter is the second Paul staffer to have his troublesome views on racial issues revealed.

In the decade before he joined Paul's campaign, Hunter provided conservative commentary on the radio and on his website under the guise of his pseudonymous Southern character. In a 2004 article posted to his site and uncovered by the Free Beacon, titled "John Wilkes Booth Was Right," Hunter argued that "
Wilkes Booth's heart was in the right place," and that Lincoln was, in fact, "one of the worst figures in American history."

The problem with Donald Trump and Rand Paul is that they are not conservative and have race issues. Paul has been okay with white supremacists and Trump is using race as a wedge issue in his campaign. 
It's absurd to put Rand in the same category as Trump. He has made minority outreach a center point of his campaign and has actually taken concrete steps to address prison reform along with Senator Booker.

Can people who voted"dissaprove" please explain why they dissaprove of Obama's performance as president?

He came into office promising hope and change in Washington, yet he's only contributed to the existence of the most gridlocked congresses in the history of this nation. His stimulus plan has resulted in a sluggish recovery that has left underemployment in double digits (it was in single digits during parts of '07), has left wages stagnant, and has kept labor force participation anemically low. His health care plan was rammed through with unconventional legislative maneuvers and he's refused time and time again to make sensible changes to it. He dragged his feet in terms of getting us out of Iraq and Afghanistan. He frequently holds up attempts at congressional compromise because he's addicted to a life of clean debt ceiling raises, despite the fact that the one time he gave in, we got the 2011 budget control act, which wasn't and isn't a bad act. Furthermore, he effectively allowed HRC to break the rules by using private email (It has come out that his aids probably knew), and on one occasion he even told the justice department to disregard a law (when he told them to stop defending DOMA. I didn't support DOMA, but that doesn't change the fact that upholding all the laws, even the ones you hate, is the president's job.).

McCain and Romney wouldn't have been better, but this nation can do a lot better than Obama.

I've strongly approved since he trolled Republicans at the State of the Union. Or possibly opening Cuba up.

From POLITICO

Quote
Hillary Clinton is on track to raise $45 million during her first quarter as a candidate, the Democratic front-runner's campaign said on Wednesday, adding that 91 percent of donations were $100 or less. The total captures the amount Clinton has raised since she launched her presidential run in mid-April.

The campaign has said it is aiming to gather $100 million before the end of 2015.

Suck it Sanders supporters.

Any chance POTUS decides to endorse Hillary in order to give her some more liberal street fred (despite the fact that she doesn't really need it) and to stop a socialist from ruining the party's chances at 12 years in the White House?
11  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Question about Semator Bernie Sanders and Congresswoman Donna Edwards on: June 30, 2015, 05:15:59 pm
This scenario is HIGHLY unlikely, but just cooperate please.  Smiley

Senator Bernie Sanders wins the Democratic Presidential nomination.

Congresswoman Donna Edwards of Maryland runs for the Democratic nomination for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Senator Barbara Mikulski.  Edwards loses the Senate nomination primary to Congressman Chris Van Hollen.

Let us suppose that Donna Edwards had been high on Sanders list of possible nominees for Vice President.

Does the fact that Edwards lost the Senate primary election have any bearing on whether he picks Edwards or picks somebody else as his running mate?

Please discuss.

Thanks.
Very hard to believe, can't really follow you that Edwards would lose to Van Hollen...
She's already losing to Van Hollen.

No, his accomplishments are far too partisan and he didn't guide America through a crisis like the absolute top tier. In addition, almost all of his accomplishments are heavily dependent on how they look in 10-20 years, and he still stands the chance of being a bottom ten President is he ramrods through a deal with Iran that amounts to complete surrender.
Because the Great Recession never happened

The vast majority of Americans weren't personally affected by the great recession. It is to the Great Depression what Afghanistan/Iraq is to WW2.
All right, everybody! Gather around here, circle it up. Now, I know I'm pretty quick to point out other people's mistakes but...Ive graduated and I'm getting older now, and I realize that it's important to recognize when someone does something right. Rubio Republican came in here with what seemed like a basic and legitimate criticism of the President. But someone took the time to find out that really he'd been drinking and correctly diagnosed him with a case of the Trolly's Disease. Now, I'm sure some of your are gonna think this is a silly exercise, but I'd like that someone to step forward and stick your hand up in the air so that the Forum can recognize your great good work. This is no time to be modest. Come now.

---Waits---

Oh! My God! It was me! I did it, I'm a genius, I'm a huge brain in a ripped up body, I am Jesus H. Clinton1996... Troll Hunter extraordinaire. Now I'm gonna exit this thread, but not until people start chanting my name so that I can exit the room with my hands held high above my head in a victorious gesture. You see, this rational troll hunting machine, this fabulous thing? Well, it runs on accolades, so I'm going to need to hear it. Come now.

He didn't say it was too early to pick Hillary. He said it was too early to predict who would win, and it is considering the elections not for another year and a half., but that he hopes Hillary does.

Makes me wonder what the other tier two states are. North Carolina? Arizona? Missouri?

Quote
Clinton’s advisers won’t talk publicly about anything beyond the Democratic primary. But they are telling local politicos that Georgia is a “Tier Two” state. ... It is not a guaranteed swing state, but could become one if the race tightens.

I was really hopeful based on the polls for Nunn, but she ended up just over 45%.

So unless Hillary has money to burn or Palin is the nominee or Trump runs third party, Georgia just seems like a money pit.

http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2016/us/elections/hillary-clinton.html

Quote
Mrs. Clinton’s team has hinted that she will also invest in potential long shots like North Carolina and, depending on resources, Georgia, with its growing population of younger black and Latino voters.

45% with abysmal turnout of key Dem demographics and Dems as a whole. The presidential year is much friendlier.
I actually don't believe that there's much of a difference between Midterm and Presidential electorates here in Georgia. Turnout doesn't drop much.

You do know that there are certain racial voting patterns that persist in the south, right? I'm assuming being from the biggest city hurts too (even like it did with McCrory in 2008).

Are you saying a black candidate has less of a chance of winning?
Yes

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!"

Sore loser.
If say he's a good winner considering he won the Presidency and then didn't fight back on being cheated out of taking office.
