• AdLib : Great, hope it goes smoothly! See you on the music thread tomorrow!

  • Beatlex : Hey AdLib,gotta go,I am changing service providers tomorrow,and have a few things to do.See Ya for the music thread tomorrow!

  • AdLib : And the meaningless gestures they’re making now on immigration aren’t going to fool anybody.

  • AdLib : Agreed, they are demographically hobbled. Even with a great candidate, and there is no such thing right now, they would have a very hard time winning without all of those demos.

  • Beatlex : AdLib,I think whoever they come up with will lose anyway,They still are warring with women,and pissing off Latinos

  • AdLib : Feel better Funk. Get some rest and fight back that cold. And FWIW, I’m rooting for Seattle on Sunday.

  • AdLib : Beatlex – Not a bad strategy but I know in my soul that a Bush will never be President again in our lifetime (sorry Jenna).

  • Beatlex : I think some are paid AdLib,But for the most part,it is stupid rednecks who think Roosh is god

  • funksands : 3 years away. That makes me tired just thinking about it. I better turn in. Under the weather and need to get better before Sunday. Hope the Seahawks win guys, because if they don’t I think this city is going to have a hard time shaking this one. Way too much emotionally invested in this stupid game.

  • Beatlex : Good insight Ad,the election is 3 years away.Jeb can sit back and watch the other idiots destroy themselves

  • AdLib : Beatlex, do you think most trolls are just individuals who are loser or are they being paid to promote their hatred and havoc?

  • funksands : X, there really are only a couple of species of trolls. They multiply rapidly and can move in a herd, but thankfully they’re stupid and cowardly.

  • AdLib : Beatlex – When you know how devious creatures like the Bush family are, it becomes almost predictable. A mother who was First Lady publicly repeating she doesn’t want her son to run for President when he was the son they wanted to run for President instead of George? How does that sound even a little believable? And if it doesn’t make sense, there must be another reason. And Jeb coming out to “chastize” his mother in public? And both of them hammering the concept of Jeb as President? Seems pretty obvious to me.

  • Beatlex : I have been going onto CNN’s site and doing some commenting and Troll slaying.The Trolls are the same everywhere.Incre dibly stupid and ignorant

  • Beatlex : LOL FUNK True

  • funksands : X, I’m not sure you can pardon someone for being an idiot. Obviously not a crime in the US.

  • Beatlex : ad,i saw that ,it makes a lot of sense,the stealth campaign!

  • funksands : What torture?

  • AdLib : funk – SCOTUS Justice Dick Cheney.

  • AdLib : Beatlex – And pardon him for war crimes against the Geneva Convention including torture.

  • funksands : Supreme Court Justice Condi Rice

  • Beatlex : Funk,pardon him for being an idiot who harmed America seriously

  • AdLib : Hey, Jeb could nominate George as a Supreme Court Justice! Perfect!

  • AdLib : I think Biden will be smart and run against Hillary in the primaries. he should, something could happen and you can’t win if you don’t play.

  • funksands : Jeb can pardon his brother too.

  • AdLib : “Jeb will make a great President just like me, heh-heh!”

  • funksands : X, so true. House reps don’t ever stop.

  • AdLib : Funk, yep, pretty much just January to June but in fairness, that’s about the same time frame Dems use but their primaries aren’t as rigged to eliminate time between primaries to keep a non-establishmen t-favorite from getting too much momentum after winning a primary.

  • funksands : Never mind, Rinse Prebius says that he wants to hold the GOP convention last week in JUNE! Whoa.

  • Beatlex : The way things are now in American politics,many years of a Presidency are squandered with your never ending electioneering IMO

  • funksands : They’ll welcome him back with open arms. He and his squint.

  • AdLib : Funk – So if Jeb is nominated, will George still not be invited to the RNC’s convention?

  • funksands : Ad, that’s a really good point. Don’t the primaries only last something like 6 months now? That’s wild!

  • AdLib : Funk – But the RNC has just skewed their primary so it will be very hard for anyone but an establishment Repub with the most money to win. So I don’t think the Baggers will get their candidate this time either…and maybe they’ll respond by not going to the polls and helping the Dems in Congressional and local races.

  • Beatlex : A lot is going to depend on whether The President succeeds with health care and the economy.Another accomplishment for him would be good too.Maybe immigration

  • funksands : Ad, I guess they figure that Bush fatigue only lasts 8 years.

  • funksands : Ad, I agree. She seemed inevitable in 2008 too. I would prefer a robust race with a lot of strong candidate hashing it out.

  • AdLib : I wrote this earlier tonight Funk, Beatlex saw it so apologies for the repetition: I’ve been mentioning the stealth campaign for Jeb Bush BY Jeb Bush and his evil mother and that campaign is continuing. They have concocted a reverse campaign, getting press repeatedly by having Barbara Bush repeatedly putting out statements that she doesn’t want Jeb running. It’s a false humility approach, intended to soften the anti-Bush feelings, “Oh, it would be awful if another Bush was President. I mean, he would be the best President ever but there are other families, it should never be another Bush. But if it was, he would be the greatest ever!” And this week, guess what? Jeb Bush was in the press saying, “I’ve asked my mom to stop repeating that she doesn’t want me to run for President.” Jesus! Is this not so supremely obvious, what a ridiculous propaganda campaign this is to keep his name in the press alongside the word “President”???

  • funksands : Frankly I think it is going to take a Rand Paul / Ted Cruz nomination followed by a 49-1 state thumping to cure the GOP of their fever.

  • AdLib : Funk – The thing is, it’s always possible. Or what if there is a new and legit scandal over something really substantial? What I would suggest that would have the biggest possibility though is a health emergency. She’s not a teenager, it can happen and if you’re not in the primary if that happens, you can’t be the nominee.

  • funksands : X, I think they tried that in the last election. Didn’t get them very far. That wing of the party is in a fight to the death with the teahadists.

  • funksands : Ryan and Bush are leading the last two national polls by a pretty wide margin.

  • Beatlex : Who knows Funk? They need someone who can SEEM moderate to have a chance for the White House

  • funksands : Ad, I think that’s smart to think that way. She’d really have to fuck it up not to win.

  • AdLib : Funk – I find it hard to believe that any of those could be seen as a competitor but I do think that a Repub GOvernor like Walker might be more attractive to the party even if he’s a sure loser in the GE. Would another Bush be nominated? I find that very hard to imagine.

  • funksands : X, I think Jeb has got to be reeaaaaaally tempted to get in with the party in this much disarray.
