Yeah 'cause Hillary would never favor invading Iraq.  Or allow her business connections to influence policy.  Or vote for the PATRIOT Act.  Or support dark ops and rendition.

 

The best way for Hillary to lose would be to try to run to Trump and Johnson's left on foreign policy.

I place the odds at 60/40 that Trump asks Sanders to be his running mate near the end of the debate.

Don't forget Trump and Sanders actually have major overlap in political planks as they are both running on anti-globalism, pro-protectionism rhetoric.

Turns out people don't normally actually show up and vote for the third parties.

 

George Wallace, May 1968 polling percentage: 14

George Wallace, 1968 general election percentage: 14

 

Ralph Nader, April 2000 polling percentage: 4

Ralph Nader, 2000 general election percentage: 3

 

SECOND TIME: Serious question (TM): What rationale can there possibly be for the media not doing their job of objectively reporting the election when it has been shown that the two legacy frontrunners poll so negatively?

Gary Johnson July 2012 Zogby Poll, 5.3%. Gary Johnson 2012 election, 1.0%.

Johnson's stated goal in 2012 was to get 5% of the vote so that the Libertarian Party would get ballot access and federal election funding. But an actual victory is a realistic expectation now, if only the media would cover him "fairly," whatever that means.

Is this up to me or something? I wasn't aware I got a vote on what The Media covered.

The media doesn't actually have a mandate of objectively reporting on the merits of all candidate. They report on "who is likely to win", which might be self-fulfilling, but clever candidates (Sanders, Trump, etc) have found ways to get varying degrees of success despite that. Bitching into the void about how "unfair" it is that your third party candidate of choice isn't getting covered isn't going to change anything, and is boring for those of us who aren't invested in said third party.

I wonder if there are any data on what fraction of Sanders' support comes from protectionist sentiments and how much comes from the progressive/socialist stuff.


There are plenty of SJW types in the Sanders camp, and that's anathema for many of the Trumpers.

I love Trump's fight with Warren. Pocahontas?biggrin.gif
This is fucking illustration of the quality of people that represent us in the Senate. If she really got her law degree and Harvard tenure on the affirmative action fraud that would be such a gift to GOP. As unpalatable as Trump is the more I see who his opponents are the better he looks.

I just can't get over the Sanders debate. This is completely unpredictable and it's such a smart move.

Nobody gets tenure at Harvard because of affirmative action you dolt.
post #2893 of 8748
Yeah, I'm sure Harvard would never take race into consideration when hiring or promoting faculty.

I am just amazed that the woman's affirmative action fraud hasn't disqualified her from holding elected office. I mean, not only did she lie, which is bad enough, but she used her white privilege to take away favoritism that should have been bestowed upon a real, deserving minority.

Just stop worrying, its already too late? That's your reasoning?

Hillary has Benghazi scandal on her shoulder so for torture, she is the biggest disaster in global arena policies. Her staff is already filled with neocon war hawks, Obama, Bush, and she have lead US and her allies Europe to some disaster policies following Neocon friend, from Iraq disaster war /intervention and isis regin to Afganistan intervension to Libyia, now Syria proxy war and ukraine and she is thinking into Iran or better neocons plan. No one like her and even in Germany one of major allies had in the newspaper Die Spigel had an article where the generals in germany where complaining and growing tired of these policies. And not to forget in Germany Merkel support was just recently at time lowest and is flunctuaiting but mostly for worst, from the votters due to immigration policies how she is handling Germany and EU economy policies and golbal arena policies. The only "allies" that keep up are Israel,Turkey,Saudis which all are involved in some disastrous scandals and politics in all this wars.Egypt just plays along. Regarding the rest most in Europe want out and nothing to do and China is just being a spectator but will join if Turkey and USA keep on with financing Uzghurs and the problem of Syria spills.
She is just playing with fire and with her warhawk policy makers advising her and this previous clown Obama she will lead US in another disaster.

No, but too many get it because they are "minorities".
Are you one of those literal idiots who needs every point to be chewed, regurgitated and spat back into your mouth to get any point across?
