Who would have been against the legalization of potijuana in Colorado? Rand Paul or Hillary Clinton?
 
2014-04-24 12:53:26 PM  
Even in the waterhead rodeo that is a Kentucky Senate election, RAND PAUL had enough dirt emerge on him to sink him if he ever actually runs for anything else. Imagine what will get churned up once an actual presidential campaign starts.

Hillary scares me almost as much as the prospect of another Bush.  At least Rand would be highly entertaining.

A week after defending controversial Nevada rancher Clive Bundy against federal agencies, Republican U.S. Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky is denouncing his comments about African-Americans.

Both or neither is my guess. Hopefully it comes up in the debates.

Alex Pareene :How 2009 Rand Paul will sabotage 2016 Rand Paul
The would-be presidential contender has a long history of kooky associations and unconventional ideas

For the last few years, Paul has enjoyed generally soft press coverage, because the political press loves a renegade Republican. But Republican hawks aren't going to let him anywhere near the nomination, and they'll spend the next two years digging up every slightly controversial thing he ever said to stop him

Rand Paul has been out there in front of cameras saying stupid shiat almost daily for a long time now. There is no way he will get past the debates and win the nomination.

Congratulations for sucking your thumb there TFA, but it means absolutely nothing.

Yes, let's act like there is no prominent Democrat more liberal than Hillary Clinton who would easily clobber "Doctor" Paul in a general election.

The difference is, back then, we were surprised to learn there were religious fundamentalists who wanted to destroy the American government. Now, we give them whatever their little hearts desire and hope they don't make too much a mess of the GOP primary.

Well he is a Republican so why should it be a surprise that he would beat a woman?
 
2014-04-24 02:01:45 PM  
1) It's pretty easy to get a derpy sample if landlines are involved in Colorado.
2) The other results of the poll indicate an extremely conservative sampling.
3) Thanks to SCOTUS, anti-Obamacare and anti-Udall ads run on a loop around here without any type of rebuttal.
4) 2016 is a long way out.

I can't and hope he stays in academia, but post makes little sense.  Yoo is best known for his role in authoring the infamous legal memoranda used by the Buh-but-Bush admin to justify enhanced interrogation techniques aka torture.  Yoo advocates expansive power for the executive branch.  Neither position fits Paul's outlook.

What makes you think that Paul's outlook would have any effect on who the Republicans in the Senate are willing to confirm?

It's pretty low class to compare the Kentucky Senate election to anencephalic babies.  It's not the waterheads' fault, and they shouldn't be insulted for how they were born.

If there's one bad thing about the Christie scandal, it's that it dashes our chances of seeing the Christie-Paul showdown I was looking forward to. Watching those two go at it would be better than the Giuliani-Romney catfight of 2008.

Your post assumes that the Republican primary will contain at least one candidate that doesn't say stupid shiat almost daily. That is not a safe assumption to make.

After what happened to his dad last time, I don't see how anyone can seriously think that Rand Paul would receive the Republican nomination.

She was on the board of WalMart before she even got near the White House.  She's more Republican than most Republicans used to be.  If you thought her husband went crazy with deregulation, you just wait.

But I have to admit Rand Paul is much scarier, if he actually had a shot.  Which he doesn't.

And this.  Hillary would be Wall St's best friend.  Probably even friendlier to them than Rand.  But Rand would be a danger to the world in other areas.

Both should be cast aside in favour of more reasonable human beings.

This is just a reflection of Hillary Clinton not being very popular. The only people who seem to think she is a lock for POTUS are the same democrat ditto heads that seem to think Obama is flawless. There is a very good reason that the majority of the dems voted for Obama and not Hillary. The country had the chance to put Hillary in charge and they decided to go with an unknown vs what they knew with Clinton
 
2014-04-24 02:33:50 PM  
Not that this poll should be taken seriously, it shouldn't. But this type of result in CO shouldn't surprise anyone. Colorado has a significant 'libertarian' bent. We didn't legalize weed because we are so progressive, we legalized weed because prohibition is stupid and 'fark you, leave me and others alone.' Hillary(D-Goldman Sachs) will have problems winning Colorado no matter who she faces.

//Hillary has a ton of baggage and Dems would be fools to ignore how polarizing she is.

She is "polarizing" because she is the front runner. She wasn't considered polarizing when Obama one the nomination in fact tons of Republicans said they wished she would have won.

The "Polarizing" thing is bullshiat. Anyone who becomes the front runner will become "polarizing". Obama, Clinton, Kerry - all were considered "polarizing" because they one the nomination and the GOP ramped up their campaign to make them look like the devil.

Who do you think if they got the nomination wouldn't be labeled "The most liberal... ever" or be called "polarizing" by the Republicans?

He is AGAINST gay marriage.
He is AGAINST legalizing pot.

Most of his fan base has no clue of his actual positions on things.

Read the article. Paul 41/30 favorable/unfavorable, Huckabee 37/30, Clinton 48/47.

Notice something? All but 5% had a strong opinion of Hillary. That is polarization. Love her or hate her, there isn't much in between.

Now re-read what I said. What possible Dem candidate you think would not be just as "polarizing" after the GOP set their sites on them?
