He's basically following the strategy that the most vocal and outrageous critic of Hillary will be considered the official opposition.

i truly hope these pants shiatters spend the next two years attacking Hillary, and when some back door candidate sweeps in a grabs the nomination, they will scramble to find something non-petty to talk about.

I agree.  Either he will be the official opposition/option or someone on the right will out-crazy him, either way, they can't win.

As a liberal, I just have to say how afraid I am of Rick Santorum running for president again, because obviously he would win over any Democrat in the general election.

To repeat: I say we should continue making fun of Rick Santorum and Rand Paul to hide how afraid we are of winning.

How, oh how, will we liberals win if either Santorum or Paul is the nominee.

Rand Paul's failure to preclude Rand Paul from being President leads me to not take seriously his ideas about who should or shouldn't be President.

Or Paul Ryan, or Marco Rubio, or Jeb Bush... pretty much anyone the GOP nominates is going to result in this:

As long as the Democrats don't nominate another Al Gore John Kerry wooden fencepost, we can just stop worrying about the White House and refocus on Congress.

I'd be fine with that. I think Hillary Clinton is horrible, and no not because she's a woman, although she IS more centrist than Republicans think. She's not a far-left kook, she's just shady and fake.

They'll take the positive results of his slur campaign though. Why bother taking the backlash for mud-slinging, when he's doing it for you, gratis?

Yeah, I was listening to Hillary talk the other day about the Snowden thing, and she was basically just saying "Oh, the government was working on protecting privacy, everyone should just trust the government to have their best interests at heart."

That's really not the type of person we want in the White House right now.

I've been hearing serious calls to draft Romney to run again. I'm afraid he just might win, he came so close last time.

So who's your champion. Big business, obstructionists, Wall Street, cloven hoofed jack booted thugs, senile ex actors, NRA Duck Dynasty Teahardists, Jebus clowns or any elephant heaps? Then again I guess I repeat myself.

I BELIEVE that killing an American citizen without a trial is an extraordinary concept and deserves serious debate. I can't imagine appointing someone to the federal bench, one level below the Supreme Court, without fully understanding that person's views concerning the extrajudicial killing of American citizens.


These are perfectly reasonable questions, objections, reservations.

Trouble is, it's a Republican making them. And after seeing how Republican lawmakers attempt to pack the courts when they have the means, and prevent Democrats from appointing judges to the Federal bench while accusing Ds of packing the courts, I can't take a single damn thing any Republican says about Federal Court appointments at face value. They've been Machiavellian bastards for too long, I have to assume their objections and questions aren't made in good faith.

Say what you will about Hillary, I just don't see her tanking the world economy, or ruining the nation's credit, just because it might make one guy in the opposing party look badly.

Actually I am afraid of Rand Paul. Many people wrongly believe he is a civil libertarian. I see it all the time on FB people posting wrongly that he is for gay marriage, or legalizing pot or getting rid of drone strikes which is all not true.

He says things on purpose so people get the wrong impression of his true positions.

SphericalTime: Are you going to vote in 2016 though?


We haven't even passed the midterms yet, so it's a little soon to say whether I will or not. I feel really conflicted on voting for the least bad candidate because, for example, Hillary would do a better job appointing SCOTUS judges than, say, Jeb Bush. But I also feel like high turnout by people who are just voting for the least bad option lends legitimacy to the candidate and gives the appearance of a popular mandate, even if there isn't one (though Bush claimed to have a mandate when he lost the popular vote, so there's that).

Truth. Hillary is waaaaay too much a friend of Wall Street for my taste, but I'd happily cast my vote for her rather than vote to give the batshiat insane GOP any power whatsoever.

Someone I think might do a decent job but slobber Wall Street's collective peen vs. a party who actually prides themselves on collectively slobbering that same peen while being on the wrong side of pretty much every single issue out there? Yeah... Hillary doesn't look so bad by comparison.

Personally though, give me Joe Biden. I mean, dude is the VP already and I've always had a soft spot for Joe - even when I was a registered and committed Republican. Yeah he's not perfect - but neither is anyone. I'd love a Biden/Warren ticket or I'd even take a Biden/Hillary ticket. Get the first woman in there as the VP, maybe then she can run for POTUS herself at the end of Biden's terms.

I think that whoever wins will claim the popular mandate regardless of the numbers, but not turning out risks giving Jeb Bush those Supreme Court picks.

But when Paul makes comments like he did Friday at the Republican National Committee's spring meeting, arguing that Hillary's handling of Benghazi during her time at the State Department had "precluded" her from being president, it becomes impossible not to see it as 2016 maneuvering.

This makes no sense.  GWB's handling of the first year of the Iraq war didn't "preclude" him from running for re-election, and by even then he had already gotten a lot more than four Americans killed.

The really sad thing is, Kerry is a decent politician(and infinitely better than W). I understand that he's a boring, no-nonsense, charisma of a wet paper bag, type of guy, but I don't mind. I actually like my politicians to be kind of boring. I'd rather him do boring stuff like running the state than going off to his ranch and beating a tree.

"Popular mandates" are just bullshiat talking points used by Sunday morning talk show hosts. If you refuse to vote because you're afraid David Axelrod is going to say something to hurt your feelings later, you'll get the govwrent you deserve.
