1  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 Senatorial Election Polls / Re: NH-PPP: Ayotte and Hassan tied; Ayotte leads Pappas by 14 points on: Today at 11:11:33 am
Republicans are using the Democrats "anti-Scott Brown playbook" to define and damage Hassan

Quote
“Before Brown ever got in, Democrats were already pushing this notion that he was a carpetbagger and that he was in it for himself, and he was never able to overcome it,” Patrick Hynes, who ran a pro-Brown super PAC in 2014 told the Journal. “It can have a tremendous impact when you define these things and frame these things very early when someone else’s hands are tied.”

With Hassan’s tied up in a fight over the state budget, conservative groups have pounced. They have outspent Democrats 10-to-1 on negative ads labeling Hassan as an “ineffective and hyper-partisan career politician” with a “spending problem.”

Glorious news! Hassan is no moderate or bipartisan politician, she's a die-hard liberal. She'd just be a corrupt Hillary Clinton clone in the Senate. I'm fine with Pappas, but I can't stand the thought of a Senator Hassan.

Btw: This poll shows no gender gap at all. It's completely implausible that Ayotte's doing as well among men as she does among women (she even does better among women in a match-up with Pappas). But still.. toss-up/tilt D with Hassan, toss-up/tilt R without her.

Hassan is probably one of the least corrupt governors in the country.

I wouldn't call her "die-hard" liberal either,  maybe a left-leaning moderate.
How would the "anti-Scott Brown" play book work on the popular incumbent governor of their state? She's not the former Governor of Massachussets running for Senate in neighboring New Hampshire.

Yeah, the 22nd Amendment only prohibits the President from serving more than 2 terms. As long as the VP wasn't POTUS for 6 or more years, he can serve as VP for as long as he can be reelected and still succeed to the the office President upon the office's vacancy by death, resignation, or impeachment.

This is blatant pandering to blacks and if Clinton did it she'd be attached mercilessly.

Nah, he was around back in the waning days of Election 2012 and was one of those UnskewThePolls Republicans. Then in 2013 & 2014 he was a Christie/Giuliani fan and now he's mellowed out to a Bush Camoaign Operative.
8  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Why does Bernie Sanders do horribly with African American voters? on: August 09, 2015, 05:59:22 pm
Because he's a 70something year old Jewish socialist from Vermont whose never had to interact with black voters in his entire career in elected office.

As a Hillary supporter I think it's hillarious watching Sanders repeatedly get interrupted. But looking at his record, they shouldn't be going after him.
10  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Breaking: Sen. Schumer (D-NY) to oppose Iran deal on: August 08, 2015, 03:09:10 pm
Democrats have better kick this spineless moron in the ass and elect Durbin as minority leader.

Durbin is pretty weak too. If I were a Democrat, I would love Patty Murray as the leader - strong, progressive, but able to work across the aisle if it calls for it. And doesn't capitulate to Israel.
Patty Murray would be great too but she won't challenge Schumer. Durbin is next in line after him and it's public knowledge that the two don't like eachother.
11  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Trump writing angry tweets about Megyn Kelly and Frank Luntz @3am on: August 07, 2015, 11:40:51 am
Frank Luntz does have some pretty stupid people on his panels, but bashing him and Kelly is just not presidential.

As for Megyn Kelly, look, let's get real here. Megyn Kelly is smart, articulate, and very attractive. Trump married a woman who modeled, but really isn't that hot and she's kinda dumb. Trump's wife has no real talent, anyone can pose for photos. Kelly is a talented commentator and news person. So, maybe there is some jealousy going on here.



FOX News is Unfair and Unbalanced.  The way they run their GOP Presidential Debates brings this out into the open.  In 2008, the FOX panel would ask their favored candidates questions about policy to display their greater knowledge of foreign policy, but not all the candidates would get to answer that question.  Then, they'd come to Ron Paul and ask him about whether or not he believed in the doctrines of 9/11 "Truthers" (which Paul called them on).  It was their way of putting a candidate on the defensive with questions that had nothing to do with public policy that served no purpose but to reinforce a negative perception of a candidate FOX didn't like that had nothing to do with public policy or governing.

Megyn Kelly did the same thing with Donald Trump last night, and got called on it by Trump.  Actually, she got exposed as a stooge, which she is.  Trump is, of course, who he is, and he did what he had to do.  He's not the first candidate FOX has deliberately tried to set up to look bad.  And I get it; that's part of the game.  But don't start telling me that Megyn Kelly is a "journalist" or FOX News is "unbiased".  

Lol. Really? Who are you to tell that Megyn Kelly isn't a journalist? You're starting to sound just as misogynist as Donald Trump (or Romney for that matter who had "folders full of women" lol). If you read a few comments and opinion pieces on CNN, the big story of the night was exactly how misogynist it all was (including Rubio's refusal to rule out women's rights over their own bodies in case of rape + Huckabee's willingness to override a Supreme Court decision, Roe vs Wade, with executive orders or what not, etcetera), and Trump in particular as he used supression tecniques and sexual harassment, generally not seen for decades in public life, in order to knock down one of the media's strongest women. Just cringeworthy to say the least.
Rubio and Huckabee got asked questions and they gave crazy rightwing answers to them. Kelly's questions to Trump were very thinly veiled attacks that were set up for the express purpose of making him look bad.

Uh.... and we're supposed to support him for the next democratic leader? How about no.
Durbin deserves it

Fox treated him unfairly with their line of questioning and he still performed well. But what might hurt him is their coverage of him.

Trump's been really silent aside from the questions directed at him

Well, I guess he wouldn't be terrible. But not a first tier candidate.
Lean rep with him.
He's definitely first tier. From what I've seen he's always performed the best or near the top in head to heads with Burr according to PPP.

Rick Perry barges in with an AK and shoots the parasitic animal living atop Trump's head that's caused him to say and so many stupid things over the past couple years.

Warren becomes frontrunners but I honestly don't think she wants to be POTUS. She wants to climb in Senate leadership and I think she makes a play for Maj/Min Whip to Patty Murray's Leader. Kirsten Gillibrand and Cory Booker become frontrunners, with Julian Castro having a good chance as well once he gets some worthwhile experience.

Kasich and Christie are definitively gonna be the two that fill up the last two slots for the Thursday debate.

Perry comes across as a maniac.
His advisors probably told him to try and appear engaged and he overcompensated. Aside from the hyperactivity, he did fairly well. Of course I'm a bit biased in that I've always like Perry as a pretty cool guy.
24  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: NH GOP "Voters First Forum" **live commentary thread** on: August 03, 2015, 07:42:49 pm
I like how Reagan was mentioned 200 times and Lincoln was mentioned once.

Carter was mentioned 13 times. Smiley
President Carter is probably sitting home right now laughing at how much they wank over Reagan.

Fiorina is literally the most annoying candidate running.
