Super Tuesday

Today they'll be voting for party candidates in 13 states. In each party, there's about 2500 delegates, so you need about 1250. A mite over 600 Republican delegates are up for grabs today, and about 880 Democrats. So it's a big day.

I do promise it'll be ugly and silly.

That is the best thing about Trump. He is making all the idiot political class look in the mirror.

No he isn't. Where the heck did you get that impression? All he's doing is making the Republican establishment, that ignored him for so long, fight desperately to try to roll back the tide now.

Yup. I love how the RINOs are saying he's making promises he can't keep. Pot and Kettle.

And we get to see if Barmy Sanders can gain ground on Hillarious Clinton.

Canadian news. Don't forget our news media is controlled by leftys and they are terrified of Trump. Even compare him to what they think Hitler was like, which is kind of funny because few of them were even born when Hitler was around.

I would like it but I doubt he can. The Democrat establishment for the time being is falling in line for the coronation.

Well the Dems weren't in lock step in 2008 as it was Hillary's turn until they shelved her for 8 years. And they certainly weren't in lock step the first two years of the Obama presidency. They managed to pass Obamacare at great risk to themselves and that was pretty much it. I am sure you can remember the infighting and they could have passed whatever they wanted.


The GOP establishment is going loopy over Trump and they're the ones who created him through their actions and inactions.

Precisely my point. Ordinarily the Dumbocrats have institutional ADHD, and the Reptilians have the discipline of a Panzer division. Weird to see them swap.

They could've copied any of the health care systems from the other 33 countries in the OECD and achieved universal coverage and comparable outcomes at half the cost. Fortunately, they avoided this disaster and instead constructed a pipeline from your wallet to the medical and insurance industries' offshore bank accounts, enforced by people with guns.

God bless America.

Push hate and stupidity long enough, and your people will vote for the stupidest hater.

No I don't agree. Most Americans are not unlike Canadians (and like Canadians), have been apathetic too long. Now with their economy in a shambles, no decent jobs etc., etc. people are finally waking up. (Canadians aren't there yet, btw). (And no, don't say that their economy is good because its a false economy - its a sham. The US is broke!!)


People are just sick and tired of being manipulated and have decided to take things into their own hands and the "elite" don't like it at all. It's too bad that there isn't someone "Trump-light" - not considered a politican, someone who will speak their mind (civilly), someone who isn't as arrogant as Trump but with the same determination, someone who will fight for the little guy and not care whether his pockets are lined by "special interest" groups .... alas I don't see anyone like that thus the Trump doing as well as he is.


Maybe he's being arrogant simply for the attention it brings him - it'd be interesting to see at the end of it all, how much this whole thing has cost him compared to Hillary.


But hey, who am I to judge what's in people's minds.


It's gonna be an interesting day today, fer sure!


JMHO

For values of "shambles" = fully recovered from the 2008 recession.

Quote:

no decent jobs

For values of "no decent jobs" = lowest unemployment since 2009.

Quote:

For values of "waking up" = voting for a blowhard with no policies.

Yeah, so broke the dollar is at record strength. Because nobody wants it.

Yeah, Trump's not manipulating people.

Doing a pretty good job of it so far.

Looking and sounding more and more like Trump is going to be the man. I guess with his money he can afford to just hire someone to do the bull work of running the country!

Yes the GOP is pushing hate ... give me a break. I wouldn't think you'd bought into that "Dumbocrat" propaganda.

QE can do wonders as well as low interest rates. How's your portfolio doing this year?

Especially when you count those who simply aren't looking for work and I am not talking simply retirees.

The GOP has done a masterful job of setting the stage for them to lose the White House and both House of Congress. As good as buddies as they had been I wonder if the Clinton group paid their friend Donald rio enter just to split the GOP vote? Look at the Ross Perot spectacle of years ago.

The White House for sure.... the Senate maybe... the House I do not believe the amount of contested seats are up for grabs in November.

Trump is actually destroying the party and the radical elements don't get that.
He has 49% of the committed delegates not 49% of Republicans overall.
In fact the latest poll shows 49% of overall Republicans won't vote for him in an
election. That does not mean 51% will. It means there are other candidates
in the race and the voters committed to those candidates won't likely support
Trump in the end when the other campaigns wind down.
In the meantime all the work done by the GOP to attract minority voters has gone
by the wayside. As for scaring the political types no he has brought instability to
the nation as other countries distance themselves from America and his
behavior. Trump has demonstrated why Americans should not vote for him
America has been the magical place of we can do things together to build a
better life for its citizens. Trump is demonstrating that you can build a better life
for some citizens by blaming other citizens for what has happened. And what
has happened? Big companies took the jobs over seas for cheap labor and
an end around working and safety conditions. People like Trump brought in
skilled offshore workers and may have violated the rules in doing so, he cannot
claim to be a friend of American workers. Trump is a disgrace to the leadership
of the party and the people will rule on that before its over

If so, that's sad. She is the one candidate from either camp I like the least. I think almost everybody would do a better job.

My gut feel is that she will be the next Al Gore. A shoe-in candidate that the American people did not coronate.

Same. I think it is a good bet but who would have thought Trump would have been poised to take the GOP nomination? I am doubtful she will have the support that Obama did so who knows.

It's a long way to November.

Roger that. I know, you're slightly-right-of-center and I'm slightly-left-of-center, but we're both center. The distorted views that people outside the U.S. get is, I think, partly about picking the media they pay attention to, and the wild inaccuracies of their own media.

I don't really know who'll take the White House, but overwhelming odds both Houses of Congress will remain majority Reptilian.
