1  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: The Next DNC Chair: PEREZ 213.5 / ELLISON 200, going to second ballot on: Today at 02:27:29 pm
Wtf is up with all the hate for Perez? DNC Chair isn't a policy figure. And even if it was, he's just as progressive as Ellison.

Should I continue this? Looking back my writing was... iffy. I could probably do a good deal better now.
3  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: The Next DNC Chair: Ray Buckley drops out, endorses Ellison on: February 21, 2017, 01:00:29 pm

Thank goodness. Lewis was one of the major players in the Clinton wing during the primaries, so his endorsement of Ellison should help a lot

I doubt it moves many Clinton people. They'll probably just see it as Lewis endorsing the black candidate.

5  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: The Official Trump 1.0 Approval Ratings Thread on: February 19, 2017, 03:05:55 pm
I think that Iowa poll will show something like -7 for Trump. A lot of voters there didn't really like Trump, but rather just hated Clinton.

Not bad.

Apparently Obama was even more unpopular in November at -9 (43/52).

I love Claire McCaskill, but she needs to retire and let Kander save this seat for the Democrats.

It's Alexander Acosta for Labor.

NBC News confirms President Trump will announce Alexander Acosta as his pick for Labor Secretary


This is Trump's first Latino pick.

Much better choice than Puzder. Looking at his Wikipedia page, he made a big push of combating white collar crime during the 00's as the U.S. Attorney for Southern District of Florida. Also emphasized health-care fraud prosecutions. Finally he was the main prosecutor against Jack Abramoff.

Yeah by all accounts he seems like the best Trump Cabinet appointee yet (aside from maybe the VA and DoD).

Since this is basically a (dumb) 2016 primary proxi-war, can someone please explain to me how tf theDNC supposedly rigged the primary for Clinton?

Still holding out hope that Clooney challenges her. He can self-fund (though he probably wouldn't have to) and has nothing to lose.
10  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: If you were to tell yourself 5 years ago who you supported last year... on: February 12, 2017, 01:34:26 am
I started supporting Hillary immediately after the election in 2012 was called for Obama so I wouldn't be surprised at all
11  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Trump Cabinet confirmation hearings **live commentary thread** on: February 10, 2017, 02:12:55 am
Gross 51-47

Who tf didn't vote aside from Sessions
12  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: The Next DNC Chair: Keith Ellison, Pete Buttigieg, Tom Perez big names in race on: February 07, 2017, 05:43:05 pm

Why exactly should I care about the opinion of a disgraced AG turned who has now entered the private sector, as a lawyer to defend the fraudulent banks that he refused to prosecute?

Haven't you answered your own question? The Holder endorsement is extremely damning. Not that we needed more signs of whom Perez is looking to represent.

You dark red avatars are some insufferable mfs
13  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Democrats' Ronald Reagan on: February 01, 2017, 01:58:49 am
There already was one: Barack Obama.

If anything I remember him being called the Ronald Reagan of the left when he ran in 2008. How true those commentators were.


14  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: MDSEN 2018- Who Runs? on: January 30, 2017, 12:59:57 pm
The Dems really need to get these geriatrics to retire, this is why their bench is so pitiful. Instead of Feinstein in CA we could have John Chiang or Xavier Becerra in MD Heather Mizeur, Donna Edwards, Marilyn Mosby.

Maybe he'll get the Republicans to stop running the country into the ground like he got those white kids to stop running in his lobby.
15  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: WV-Sen: Jenkins running on: January 30, 2017, 07:34:28 am
I think Trump saves Manchin's ass in this race. He might not endorse him, but he'll speak very growling of Manchin to the press which'll go a long way inn WV.
16  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Will Rey Become a Jedi? on: January 27, 2017, 02:37:21 pm
My crazy theory is that she will be both a Jedi and a Sith Lord. I think it's inevitable that she'll at least get tempted by the dark side, otherwise there don't seem to be any obstacles for her as a character. Perhaps she will truly "bring balance to the force", by ending the animosity between the Jedi and the Sith. Destroying one side of the force isn't exactly what I would call "balance."

Rey shouldn't bring balance to the force. They need to stop retreading on previous themes. Anakin Skywalker brought balance to the force. He was the Chosen One. Let Rey have a different destiny.

Against Tulsi Gabbard, she would win the House and the Senate, against anyone else, it will be another GOP nightmare
Lol

Depends on whether or not the Democrats nominate another unpopular candidate.
19  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: GA-GOV 2018: Jason Carter mulling another run on: January 22, 2017, 09:20:37 pm
How close did Carter get in 2014, which was a strong Republican year with a heavily GOP senate race also on the ballot?
He lost 52-44

Oh. And it looks like he actually underperformed Michelle Nunn. Lovely

Well Carter was running against an incumbent while Nunn was running for an open seat.

A highly unpopular incumbent with ratings deep underwater.

Deal wasn't highly unpopular, he was highly unknown. It's just the few people that did care enough to know him didn't like him.

And if Carter runs again I'll work my ass off to win this seat for the Democrats.

Luke's daughter, and I feel like the reveal is gonna be a won't be the real narrative twist of Episode 8.

Perriello was one of the few Democrats that went down actually fighting in 2010 and never hid his support for President Obama. For that reason alone he has my support.
23  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Who Would You Want to Campaign for You if You Were Running For Office Right Now on: December 30, 2016, 10:44:37 pm
Jon Tester, Liz Warren, Joe Biden, and Nick Chubb
24  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: How would Pence have done against Hillary? on: December 28, 2016, 05:48:57 pm
He probably wouldn't have won Michigan or Pennsylvania, but he would've won Titanium R Wisconsin by at least 10%, since Trump's landslide 0.8% win is the new Republican floor in Wisconsin, and that floor is rising faster than college tuition.

I can't tell if this is sarcasm or no
25  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Who leads the left in 2020? on: December 28, 2016, 05:06:36 am
Harris has no major legislative experience. She got nothing done. She is a 1 time Senator. On what basis will she run? Being AG of CA? She is soft on TPP!

Another CA elite with identity politics? Good luck trying that in WI.

She hasn't even been sworn in yet...
