Why Hillary will be the next POTUS - Page 66

post #976 of 3320
I think part of the problem is exactly what is in those emails - given the timing and whats been previously reported, I suspect most of the retroactively classified content has to do with the drone program. Most likely a recurring fact pattern in a large number of the emails is: (a) Drone strike kills civilians in nation X, nation X complains via diplomatic channels, flurry of emails in state department reaching Hillary, DoD retroactively classifieds everything because they have that authority and overclassify everything, or (b) Press reports on drone program/strikes, same flurry of emails to Hillary, same DoD retroactive overclassification of content actually being reported in the news.

The important thing is she will still be POTUS elect on November 20th.

I wish we could just get straight to the coronation.  I'm bored with this political season already.

She's really vulnerable, but not to Trump (or Cruz). Either Rubio or Kasich would crush her, for example (maybe not - the electoral math is really bad for the gop in general). Convention rules committee really should consider an unbinding resolution, except I think Cruz would have the real delegate support and win on the first ballot in the delegates were unbound.

Believe it or not I was speaking to someone recently that is high up in the national RNC machinery. He says there's talk of an open first ballot.

Figured it would be deleted.

Comey probably took a bribe and should be investigated and prosecuted if he did so. It seems like so much, if not all, that the Clintons touch, is corrupt there after, including Comey.

Trump is a lousy speaker, and doesn't think with political savy. Is he half as bad as what so many people think? He is a mysterious person it seems to me. I certainly don't want a racist as a president.

With two lousy candidates it seems like the media would be showing more of the libertarian party. Give us reasons for a third choice.

I have heard similar rumors.  I also hear Trump is going to go with Newt for VP.

Why is it that the only quasi-establishment Republicans who who can go whole hog on their Trump support are fatties like Christie and Newt? There must be something to that.

He obviously wants to shift focus from his hair to some fatso.

Their gluttonous exterior mirrors their inner moral rot and desire for power like their desire for fried foods.

Plus somebody he can literally hide behind if needed.

Think Christie and Newt are looking beyond what general republicans are thinking at the moment. There scope of what republicans are is bigger. Cruz and Rubio opinions of republicans are to small. Rubio I like. But he doesn't know enough.

A tangentially related quack theory of mine is that Jeb's pre-campaign weight loss surely contributed to his sad-sack image. Middle-aged chubbies take note, if you want to shed pounds and not lose your gravitas, better lift weights.

Yeah, fatties come in handy sometimes.

What would happen if the delegates voted for someone that hasn't done the paperwork to run? Say, Mitt?
