Discussion in 'Political Discussion' started by TheSolderKing, Jun 5, 2011.
Telling someone to "discuss" this is epic fail; state your own position, support it and then others may jump in...
Make a bet that Harry willl jump in and say something about slobbering, drunk Ted Kennedy though..
I'm busy right now, Kennedy was a fat slobbering drunk thats nothing new.
Brown seems like the only capable contender that has any chance of challenging Obama.
they do not have anything going for them. Romney would be a good Joe Bidenesque guy to have on the tickett.
if Brown runs as president with Romney as a VP the Elephants quash the Donkey. I'd vote for Brown if the economy stays the same.
Brown also has thas that that family thing going for him 1 daughter BC and I am sure there r 1-2 c more kids... American voters are suckers for the family thang
Brown has little chance in the Republican primaries, and I don't see Romney taking a back seat to him.
that is too bad I like Scott Brown b/c he does not necessarily go balls deep on the GOP predominant way of thinking especially when making a decision. I hate the current GOP part, but a person like Brown gives my old party hope. I voted for Barrack I am an Independent. Barrack has my vote over Romney any damn day. Brown would make for a fine challenger if I might say so myself.
Brown does not appeal to the real power in the Republican Party, those advocating for some type of theocracy...
Other than that he is a reasonable politician, who is often referred to as a RINO...
Prefer him to an extremist on either side..
Not enough "executive experience"
Has barely been a Senator
recall those talking points?
Maybe he has a shot afterall...
This field of candidates thus far is such a bunch of losers, I think ANYONE gets the hard core right wingers excited. But those arent the people that the right needs to get excited. They need to sway the same voters they are resenting (seniors and unions). Scott Brown doesnt do that. None of them do.
Ronald Reagan isn't walking through that door!, Larry Bird and Kevin McHale a'int either!
that is what SU-Cks you mention THEOCRACY and the religious driven agendas is exactly what pushed me AWAY from the current GOP. Whatever happened to the separation between church and state???
The traditional Elephant's last hope is Mr. BROWN...
The Neo-CONS have trashed the party much like the fanatical Islamist hijacked Islam and transformed it into :bricks::bricks::bricks:
you cannot say Brown will not do that. Brown is infinately better than the other GOP candidates.
bring on Governor Pataki!!!
If I was him, I'd lay low in this race and gear up for 2016. NObody is gunna beat Obama. Its most likely gunna be a Reagan/Mondale kind of victory.
United States presidential election, 1984 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Someone is getting busted up in 2012, and that candidate will probably never recover. Its why you hear that ChrisCO Christie is the "darling of the right" and a "Superstar", yet he doesnt want a thumping, so he isnt gunna run. I'd suggest a guy like Brown does the same if he wants to actually run in the future.
just some advice to Scotty B, thats all.
Well if Brown was running for President of New England against Obama you might a case but there are 44 other states where this makes no sense at all, you need to get out and see flyover country.
I was merely bringing him up b/c he is the GOP's only chance... If he loses I bet he wins over more states and voters than the other GOP Clowns.
I hope Obama wins and if you say Brown won't beat him then he should wait until 2016.
I am surprised Pataki has not made a move yet? He could be a GOP man for 2016 as well.
Spoken like a true Obamabot.
Romney is the only legit candidate the GOP will have ... his strong suit is his expertise in financial areas - but is that enough to elect the man? I still think we are best off having 1 party control the house and the other the presidency, I really do not want to see the GOP have both again. I really think Boehner and Obama can move in a good direction right now. If the GOP is to stay in then I want Obama to be re-elected.
RINO's like Romney get kidded in the General Election see McCain, why get a dem lite like Romney when you can get the real thing. Guys who are too conservative to get elected (ie Reagan stomp failed libs like Obama or J Carter.
Cain or Palin will mop the floor with Obama if they get to debate him. Also the 9% unemployment and depressed housing market.
You really have a fascination with pols who mangle their history. How about Bachmann, too? Odd that you hate America so much that you're willing to re-write history because of the bungling of failed pols and pol-wanna bes who happen to be in your party.
If this country ever gets represented by Palin we are all screwed ... badly. Our country has lost some of its' luster ... it would lose a whole lot more. i think she's great for debate and energy in political discussion as she represents something different and we need more discussion of ideas - but she is not nor will ever be Presidential material IMO.
Does she offer any ideas for discussion?
I agree with that take when it comes to guys like Ron Paul, and maybe Herman Cain. But I can't think of any interesting ideas coming from her.
Isn't this the type of ad hominen attacks that Ian warned us about??
It would seem that a mod would model appropriate behavior, not just make a personal attack without adding to the discussion.
And when this descends into name calling the mod will just walk away and not take any responsibility for his behavior.
Who gives a sh!t about Paul Revere History, Americans are interested in TODAY (gas prices, forclosures, drugs, pervert politicians, war, and stopping the muslims from killing any more of us.
America Is In Trouble Bad Trouble.
F-ck Paul Revere
"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it"
just quoting for posterity
This one, too, for the next time you try to pretend you don't say these things about "the muslims"
for me it's not so much her ideas ... it's that she represents an opinion shared by some Americans ... for better or worse. The more candidates who represent opinions of Americans the better IMO. When only several candidates dominate the debate from the onset of the election process i see that as a failure.
What in her record makes you say that she was a very effective executive?
Not a damn thing.
Epci fail by me was instead os wasn't , changes the intent just a bit.....
I cannot see her leading this country ... she would tear it apart IMO. i can think of other women I'd rather see as President - she reminds me of a commercial for incontinence.
agreed -- though I'd like to see more candidates who also challenge people's ideas
That's where folks like Ron Paul come in. I don't like some of what he says, but I do like some, and some of the rest are tough issues. I'd like to see more of that in each election as well.
