I stand by my prediction that he has a 0% chance (not close to 0, but real, actual zero) of winning the nomination. But still, welcome to the race, Mr. Pataki.

He'd actually be in a good position if Jeb, Christie and Kasich all collapse (especially since the more conservative wing will be even more divided). He might force his way onto the ticket with a solid performance in New Hampshire at a minimum.

Pataki is a shoe-in once Jeb, Walker, Paul, Carson, Christie, Fiorina, Kasich, Cruz, Huckabee, Rubio, and Perry collapse.
Seriously, what chance does he think he has now that he didn't back in 2012? He could've actually won the nomination 4 years ago.

So the Atlas circle-jerk versions of Hillary vs Rand?

Nun. But despite his later "activities", Miller was bar none the best governor of the last 50 years.

I imagine him giving a Bartlet-like speech with a significant "4 More Years" refrain from the crowd.

Not surprised, as most R&B song singers identify with Hollywood or MTV crowd.
This is one of the whitest things I've ever read

He is running for V.P.
No, he's running for Secretary of Defense. He brings nothing to a ticket as Veep.

just one little snowflake of the Clinton avalanche

Seriously curious, and uncombatively, I ask... why do you consider yourself a Republican?

I refuse to continue answering that question, as I have used up all my eloquence on it. Just accept it.


You've never given an eloquent answer. You simply say you're a swing voter who went for Bush in '04 that has since become disappointed with the party, and that your state republican party "sucks less ass" then your state democratic party, whatever that is supposed to mean. I have never seen you criticize ANY democrat or ANY democratic party policy position. You are enthusiastic about Hillary. You've never made an effort post about why you are a republican.

If you really are a republican, name 1 issue that you agree with republicans on. Name one. If you can't, then you are not a republican in any remote sense of  and should switch your avatar to something that is not republican. It can be independent, or libertarian, or other, it doesn't have to be democrat. But if you truly do disagree with the republicans on every issue, then you have no basis on which to call yourself a republican.
Why are you still here?

Nobody cared when Hillary basically did the same thing, so this shouldn't hurt him.

15  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of Mitt Romney on: May 14, 2015, 05:41:12 pm
Favorable. His leadership as MA governor and 2002 Olympics chair was distinguished. I didn't vote for Romney, but I think many people (not just staunch GOPers) may look back someday and think maybe he should have been President, that maybe--just maybe--he would have been better than the current incumbent.
It isn't 2014 anymore. Obama's popular.

45.8% Approval (The RCP number) isn't exactly popular

Yeah, but it was much better than the 34% Bush was at on May 13th, 2007.



Is that the benchmark you're concerned with?
No the benchmark we're concerned with is the one that Governor Romney set for himself: being a successful President meant getting Unemployment down to 6%. Under Obama it is now 5.4%.

19  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Has your opinion of John McCain changed since 2008? on: May 13, 2015, 12:19:49 am
My feelings of him in 2008 were colored by my inexperience in politics. He was running against Obama so I disliked him. Then around 2011 I read Game Chaneg and saw how troubled he was by the rancor Palin inspired in his base and his speech ripping the Tea Party on the Senate Floor made me develop great respect for him. And in late 2012-early 2013 when it seemed he'd gotten over his butthurt loss to obama and was gonna work with him in the Senate my opinion only rose. Then he started talking foreign policy and now have as much respect for him as I do Bush, which is marginally higher than the average Republican.

He hasn't even officially declared yet and he's already talking about skipping things?? Ummmm
Oh I get it now. He's skipping the Straw Poll because he's not running. He's skipping every contest.

Christie may be corrupt as hell, but he's not an idiot. I doubt he has technically done anything illegal.
Unlike our friend Rick Perry, who probably will be in jail eventually.
I thought there was reluctant bipartisan agreement that Rick Perry's "crimes" were kinda BS?
The case against him is pretty solid and proceeding to a trial, so regardless of "reluctant bipartisan agreement", he's still going to have his day in court, which he really wanted to avoid.
From what I've read the case doesn't seem like a legal issue, and more like political payback.

Since Vinick exists now, West Wing logic applies with California.
I think the bad weather on Election Day was the reasoning they gave for Maine going for Vinick. California, Texas, South Carolina, and Arizona were just them being bad at understanding elections.
