• comment on a post What is your Tipping Point with Obama? over 6 years ago

    We get stuck with Obama because people like YOU really believed his stuff on the stump 6 months ago.

    I said then, I'll say it now.  He is a pol ... he'll run over an old lady to collect a vote.  He isn't, and never was, "different."

    The only question becomes do we risk 4 years of McCain?    

    My fearless prediction is that based on the war and the economy, no matter who wins, they are a 1 termer.

  • .... an enabler of the power elite?  Yes and also a useful idiot and corporate stooge.  

    The sad truth is they will fill his slot with more of the same.   Lets see where can we find another shallow, dim witted, fat booze bag that would blow Dubya if it meant an exclusive .... Chris Matthews!

  • I thought he was a dim witted bloated overrated hack, but even dim witted bloated overrated hacks deserve to RIP.

  • That is my view.   I am not sure she would want to gamble on the number 2 slot right now either.  A lot can happen between now and November.  Her best shot at the White House would be if McCain were to be elected.  He has one term written all over him should he win.

    If Obama wins the Presidency I think you see Clinton sit tight in the Senate.  Possibly retire at the end of her current term, who knows.

  • He has to convince me that he is a real Democrat and not just a pandering empty suit who can turn a slick phrase and do a great impersonation of a souther preacher when it suits him.

    He has to convince me that he can beat McCain somewhere that matters like Ohio.

    Meanwhile McCain leads Obama in PA, OH, and FL and we are looking at another 4 years at least of toxic Republican WHite House rule.

    If we are lucky McCain will only start 1 more war.  Worst case he starts 2 or 3 and uses nukes.

    He said he is "different."

  • A feel good vote for Obama and a McCain Presidency.

    A lot of Democrats opposed the war.  A lot of Democrats didn't.  Many where in between as well.

    Fact is you could have a lot of fringe candidates with very little appeal outside college campuses and very liberal activist groups start playing major roles due to online organizing, and on line money.  

    We could end up better looking versions of Dennis Kucinich running every 4 years and being slaughtered by the Republicans.

    I think the answer is to go the route the Republicans have and  made the states winner take all.   That way if a candidate can't win Ca or Ny, or can't win Fl or TX, then they won't win the nomination by default.

    I posted earlier:

    The way the system works and the way the internet works we could see this sort of thing start to happen every 4 years.  Heck, Obama isn't that bad considering what could come down the chute in the future.

    With college kids and liberal activists kicking in 30 million a month on the internet, with split votes, and with all the smaller and caucus states dominated by liberal activists and university hubs, we could see all sorts of godawful fringe left candidates rise to the top in the future at the expense of more mainstream, established candidates.

    With the internet buzz, and more importantly, internet money all sorts of johnny come lately, new kid in town candidates could catch fire every 4 years, 1 year before the elections, and grab the election by winning one of two early states, and sweeping all the small, caucus states later.   It would be a nightmare.

    In these larger states you have to appeal to wider, more diverse electorate to win.  Difference age groups, different races, difference income levels, etc.

    To win a primary or caucus in states like Wisconsin, or Vermont, or South Dakota, you basically just need to appeal to the liberal activists in the  state who make up a much higher % of the vote than they do in the larger states.

  • comment on a post Obama should concede over 6 years ago

    I can't vote for a candidate who didn't get the most votes.  I can't vote for a candidate who didn't win key states like CA, Fl, NY, MA, TX, OH, etc.

    I am not going to vote for a guy who rode liberal activists in Idaho to a victory.
