Re: Clinton or Trump?

Why is the death of these 4 people a screw up but not the death of thousands of others?

Wait, wait, I know the answer to this one! It's because Hillary was the sitting Secretary of State. Right? Right.

In all seriousness, the [more]

Re: One way Trump's better as the 2016 Nominee

Oh, I doubt that. This campaign is illustrating - abundantly - Cruz' failings as a candidate. Whatever the opposite of charisma is, Cruz has it by the bucketful. Cruz: the man that no one likes, even when the alternative is Donald [more]

One way Trump's better as the 2016 Nominee

Because that means Cruz will be the clear front-runner in 2020, and the GOP will go down in flames yet again, one way or another.

I think it's going to take (at least) four straight losses at the national level for the GOP to begin the [more]

Re: Sanders supporters: Look to the general

So we shouldn't be looking at national polls of, I don't know, VOTERS, maybe, and instead look at ... ahem ... betting markets?

Betting markets take into account national polls, but also all the other available information. I'm [more]

Re: Sanders supporters: Look to the general

By deliberately supporting the more vulnerable candidate, Clinton Democrats have made their path in the general much more difficult than it had to be. Particularly up against a candidate where there is much more crossover appeal from Trump to [more]

Sanders supporters: Look to the general

The Democratic nominating contest came an end last night. Clinton added 64 delegates to her lead, and only has to win only 36% of the remaining 1054 unpledged delegates to get to 2026.

At the same time, she is gaining momentum, not losing [more]

Re: Abortion Demographis

Contrarily, abortion disproportionately kills unborn black and hispanic unborn babies.

Most on the left are ok with that, as long a it is convenient.

Re: Obama's approval ratings soar

I can see why Obama's approval ratings have soared. Have you seen the great stuff he's done lately? WOW!!!

You mean other than "not being ANYTHING like the leading contenders for the GOP nomination"?

Re: The score: 1266 to 1038

It's about half way into the third quarter and Team Clinton is up 13-10, but Team Sanders has the ball.

If you really think this accurately characterizes the situation, you're setting yourself up for a massive disappointment. [more]

Re: Are there any other "Biden Rules"?

There wasn't any need for widespread condemnation, because Biden qualified the statement in the very same speech , as follows:

Are there any other "Biden Rules"?

I just want to make sure I have this straight: When Democrat Biden makes a statement in speech it becomes a binding rule on Republican governance forever thereafter should the occasion ever arise to invoke said rule.

On the contrary. The Democratic Party filtration system is working exactly as designed.

I think there's no filtering on either side Gordon. It would be my advice to all to just stay home in November. Try again later.
