Re: The 2016 Presidential Election thread

Oh what a disaster that would be. A guy with no concept whatsoever of how any organization is run, let alone a small government, let alone the most powerful government in the world. He would be so utterly lost and overmatched.

At least HRC doesn't need to have EVERY DETAIL explained to her as she steps into the office.

That is what is really weird. He seems like an absolute crazy individual, but looking at his accomplishments....fuck, it just doesn't seem to add up.

You can be smart in one area and ignorant in others. Look at Doctor Oz; he's a brilliant surgeon that supports basically every bullshit magic medical cure in the world. There are several noted creationist doctors that are all over Christian websites...

But Carson doesn't even seem sharp when he speaks. So it seems he's smart at medicine and a bit slow in every single other area.

Who could've thought that there could be someone scarier than Donald Trump running for president.

Well we have Hillary.. she scares me more than Trump. But I think Carson scares me more than both of them.

Didn't affect Carl Sagan's speech. He's a calm guy which is understandable. But if people though Obama was overly thoughtful and slow to make a decision. Oh boy.

House approves bill gutting ObamaCare, cutting Planned Parenthood

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2015...ed-parenthood/

Another classy move. Yeah Republicans. That'll show'em!

"This is our best opportunity to date to put the bill on the president's desk and show the American people where his priorities lie," said Rep. Diane Black, R-Tenn.
"This is a hyper-partisan document that is just talking points for extremists," said Rep. Ted Lieu, D-Calif.
Unfortunately, I have to agree with a Democrat!

There's an ebb and flow to politics and these parties change sides constantly. The Republicans will do a bunch of stupid things in a row and we get irritated at them and think the Democrats have a good handle on things and then they do a bunch of stupid things in a row and you bounce back. I think they all do it on purpose so we are all just left guessing and at the end of the day they are all just making bank and laughing at us. Pretty sure..

If Trump goes indie, I certainly will. Maybe Republicans can screw themselves again and piss him off.

Yep... nothing says a change of course upwards in the polls then massive spending cuts and lay-offs. Trump better be worried.

Shouldn't it at least say something like "JEB!" or "I paid $75 for this and all I got was a capital gains tax cut and a ban on abortions?"

What's the point in paying $75 for a fucking bowl I can buy at Walmart for $.99? Why not just give him $75?
