The more he speaks the crazier he sounds. Monitoring speech on college campuses, intensify the war on drugs, more troops to Iraq, really?

Re: The 2016 Presidential Election thread

Ben Carson's allure has to be the biggest mystery in this election cycle.

Carson is so on the autism spectrum, it's not even funny.

Carson has provided one very beneficial service. His supporters have proven they will follow anybody as long as they claim the same crazy religious beliefs. Always nice to know who those people are come the next election.

He has no oratorial skills, he doesn't strike me as a leader, and doesn't seem very familiar with a lot of the world's issues. A mystery why his numbers are so high.

Because people are fucking morons and love to be spoonfed sweet-tasting shit.

Global Warming, for example.

Re: The 2016 Presidential Election thread

Global warming is "sweet tasting shit"? Which part? Which part is "sweet" to the morons? The increased costs of energy if we implemented a carbon tax? The end result of not reacting to global warming?

I'm not a global warming denier but Venice's flooding problems are caused by the fact that it's sinking .

Beats the low-tide. Have you ever been in Venice when the water's receding? Smells like a rotting corpse, everywhere.

Eh it's not really noticeable. We were there last summer. We had to walk on planks in St. Marks's cathedral because of the water.

It's sinking AND sea levels are rising. http://www.livescience.com/19195-ven...ng-slowly.html

I didn't smell anything.

I have to say, as much as I'm not a fan of Hilary, she came out looking better after this Benghazi bullshit than before it. Not only did she acquit herself nicely, she made the GOP look like utter buffoons.

Carson is the only last desperate thing Evangelicals can hold on to.

If beetle dung had the statement "God Bless!" pinned to it.... you'd have a pile of beetle dung being propped up by the Christians, proclaiming its running for prez.

I'm not "not a fan of Hillary". But yea. This crap was finally exposed for what it really is - a smear against her presidential campaign.

It makes the GOP look bad. And I hope it instilled a little humility in their Fox News follower types. I'm sure the spin has already started. What angle are they defending themselves with now?

Re: The 2016 Presidential Election thread

It's gonna get desperate with Fox News. The solid and honest ones are calling it for what it is but this is on Fox Business. FNC however is a fucking Christian tabloid mutation.

Christian News Network


The other CNN.

How many people will continue to proudly display their "Hillary Lied and 4 People Died" bumper stickers?

Just in: Lincoln Chafee is no longer running for president.

In other news, Lincoln Chafee was apparently running for president.

Megyn Kelly was going nuts attacking Hillary Clinton's testimony latching on to every small comment. Then she had the mother of one of the slain on weeping about a coverup. I mean, c'mon Fox.

My next door neighbor who listens to Limbaugh every day will probably get one to put next to his "NOBAMA" sticker on his pick-up truck.

It was going to be tough for him anyway unless he had another father somewhere whose death he can use as an excuse.
