Could the traffickers not just switch to alternative routes through Romania or Croatia?

Isn't that how those trucks carrying migrants travelled?
Romania and Bulgaria are not yet part of the Schengen area, so the Romanian route wouldn't be of much benefit for them.

Since Serbia is (obviously) also not Schengen this should not be a factor. Hungary is the gateway to Schengen in both cases.
I think you misunderstood my point. (Of course Serbia is not in Schengen.) Simfan might have thought (though I'm not saying he did) that Romania is already part of the Schengen zone, which would render it more logical to travel to Romania. Since it's not, this is not an advantage of travelling through Romania.

Yeah I think he is done atm. The only candidates with a chance at this point are Bush, Cruz, Rubio, Paul, and Kasich

I particularly hate these stats because we're counting growth since the beginning of his presidency, which is like, the bottom of a fiery pit. We should not measure growth; we should measure raw numbers. And compared to what's "normal," the indicators don't paint as much of a glowing picture.

For example, despite the recession officially "ending" 6.5 years ago, household income is still 2k less than it was in 2007. Likewise, labor force participation rate has declined among EVERY demographic and age group EXCEPT those over 55.

Obama will be the first president in a long, long time to never have a year of 3% GDP growth as well. In fact, as of right now, W  has averaged more economic growth than this administration.

You can manipulate stats all you want, but most Americans agree that things are not better. Why do you think a mere 28% of Americans think things are going in the right direction?

Most Americans agree upon a lot of things that aren't quite true.

Bold prediction from me: Tim Kaine more likely to lose than Bill Nelson, even factoring in the FL vs VA partisan lean. Tim Kaine won by an underwhelming margin in 2012, and after the Mark Warner disaster in 2014 I'm not convinced Kaine (who is weaker IMO) can pull it out in a similar fashion if the electoral climate is the same.

I could definitely both see them as at risk - Nelson really lucked out as Connie Mack was a really underwhelming campaigner and a bad candidate overall.

Barack Obama just set the bar too high. Nobody will ever find a candidate that can match him. McDonnell was purged. Christie was attacked by first his own and then the media. Those two could have been great. Rubio is as dull as Pawlenty and Walker though being Cuban is a major help in electoral ability - still no BHO, and may fall yet. Susana Martinez seems smart enough not to get involved and Paul Ryan knows it's best to operate behind the scenes (perhaps hope for him way down the road a la FDR)

Jindal is pretending to be something he's not and is 4 years too late.

Rubio's political career is probably over for now. Maybe he'll make a "comeback" and run for governor in 2018.

I can see Paul Ryan staying in the House for a few more decades and being something like Wisconsin's answer to Bill Archer.

You know, situations where you voted for candidate X but in hindsight you would have voted for candidate Y or just really didn't like candidate X.
