There has to be money in it because way too many people run campaigns that everyone knows will lose. If there isn't money in it, why do it?

I call it doing a bob dole, he ran 3 times and finally got nomination at try 3. I swear pat Buchanan and Ricky santorum just hoping the next go will get them the nomination.

Running is just an excuse to raise money and spend it on yourself

Getting elected just means you get a bigger payout after your term

Didn't someone try to hack the Mike Pence account on Trump's new social media only to find out it didn't exist?

More like evil overlord and henchman. Only that relationship requires one side to lay down their life while the other has no concern at all.

By "hack" you mean click a unreleased link that allowed you to create an account?

And I saw screenshots that showed there wasn't any filters on screen names and " MikePence" was allowed and not reserved

It's a grift ...It's what keeps the lights on and a roof over mother's head.. It doesn't matter if he wins or looses, the bills get paid and he really doesn't have to do anything but show up at a few public appearances and blabber a few prepared statements..It's probably even easier and a more guaranteed payout than doing
the speaking tour thing with your ghost written book...

You know those FEC regulations that forbid spending campaign funds on personal expenses?

Pence is the reason they were written
 
2021-10-22 9:57:59 PM  
What the fark is wrong with that guy?
 
2021-10-22 9:59:01 PM  
So he's basically grifting in order to keep the rube money rolling in?

Fair enough.

Who TF would pay Pence 100k for a speech?

Who TF wants to buy a book he had ghost written?

That is like investing in Pence's already defunct gas station company.

Lindsey Graham ought to run in 2024 too!

Free food!
 
2021-10-22 10:00:35 PM  
There's no way Trump is going to let Pence crack 1% in the polls. "Hang Mike Pence" will be a regular chant at every Trump rally.
 
2021-10-22 10:01:26 PM  
FTA:Pence appears less and less a hero defending the Constitution than a cornered political animal who eventually chose the path of least resistance and kept his role low key.

Ha! i called it. I guess everyone here called it. He was driven entirely by fear that day. That much was clear at the time.

And that's terrible. How are working moms suppoed to run for president? Uh.. That looks arcastic but I really mean it. Elizabeth Warren should have been able to run even if she was living in that trailer after Harvard. Thare ought to be a government stipend for a nominee to pay their bills during the official campaign, at least. As the USA operate now, their politicians need to be independently wealthy.

It really speaks to how delusional he is if he thinks he has a hope in hell of winning after hearing an entire crowd of likely-GOP voters chanting "hang Mike Pence," thanks to the lies told by TFG.

He might know where some of the bodies are buried when it comes to trump.

So maybe he is hoping to pull one or two of those out during the debates?

This is the whole point of FTA.

To him, it doesn't matter if he wins or loses, because stupid people will keep throwing money at him to try.

Aw sweet Sumner child. That is why they use PACs now. There are plenty of other ways to fundraise now for "your campaign" and give yourself money from it
 
2021-10-22 10:17:21 PM  
He has to run, sure there's the grift but also acknowledging that the dream is dead before he even starts means he also has to acknowledge that Trump threw him to the wolves and that the people he needs the support of to win want to kill him.

It's that or whistle past the graveyard.

No one runs for President without an ego the size of Jupiter.  Most winning campaigns are so far in debt they are still paying it off long after the 8 years are up.  You don't run for POTUS to make money - you ddo it because you think your shiat don't stink.

Hey, I'm not saying the rules stopped anything.  I'm just saying they were written after Pence's abuses made the news.

JFC... I just found out about the pineapple thing and now this

What I gathered from 2016 is if you're a Republican, you can spend 6-8 months  pretending you have a viable egocentric candidacy before garnering 0.2% of the party vote in a caucus and never being spoken of again.

Most people run for office because God directly told them to.

God has a funny sense of humor.

It was my understanding that unless you lend your campaign money, a campaign is like an LLC. It is its own entity, so even if a campaign is in debt, it doesn't mean the candidate is broke.
 
2021-10-22 11:02:47 PM  
Mike Pence does not have a single accomplishment worthy of praise to show for decades in public office.

Not. One.

When they talk about sucking off the government teat, Mike is one of the poster boys.
 
2021-10-22 11:05:01 PM  
Hey, when your campaign staff consists of family members and close friends, all of whom are being paid by the money people send to you, it creates a dependency on the election cycle.

Let's lighten this thread up

Life's not
the French Riviera
Believe me
Life's not
A charity ball
It isn't
all a great big bed of roses
It's not like showbiz
But the main thing I suppose is.....

(Were- not- fakin' -it; backup) We're not the people on Broadway
Believe me
(It's real, but better than joining -the- navy; backup) But we know we're having a life
Although we may be blessed and wealthy
But then a-gain were young and healthy
And any-one who's young and healthy knows
that that's the way
the traffic flows

It's a living

That must be a hell of a time.
RWNJs think he's a traitor because he didn't break out some sov cit shiat while certifying the results of the election some day in January, and his main claims to fame are farking up the response to an HIV outbreak in Indiana, standing next to Trump, and standing next to Trump who was in the process of farking up the response to a coronavirus outbreak.

Who would vote for him? He's just plain to the most cluelessly centrist of voters at this point, and everyone else probably kinda' hates his guts.

/ Pat Buchanan was crying in the portojohn was Trump got elected. He has been pushing the same talking points since 92. The nazi apologist knew he won't get his crown in his life when the sensient meme came to power in 2016.
