Definition of pun.
Nobody likes the republicans now and they haven't for a long time.
Stunning analysis. It's also patently false. There are millions of Republicans that will vote for McCain. True, it's a Democratic cycle right now...but that alone will not win the election.
You know the reasons so I really don't have to site them.
Cite. That's the second time you've done that.
A selfish bastard? That's really classless of you. And what, specifically has Bush done to "make a mess" of things for his party? He's unpopular, but he doesn't things that will knowingly hurt the party...has he?
As we go into the summer and fall there will undoubtedly be more embarrassing things that come up about the Bush administration that fuel this dislike.
I think he's bottomed out. There is only so much damage such information can do to McCain anyway.
The idea that all of these people who support Hillary are just not going to vote or vote McCain out of spite because their candidate didn't win is just wildly stupid!
Your ignorance is amazing. I am merely quoting data for you. It's not my fault you don't like the numbers. 12% of Oregon Dems say they won't vote for Obama. Therefore, we can say the following:
1. The number will likely change as the general election approaches.
2. Since Oregon is a liberal state, we can assume that same type of poll would not be more favorable to Obama, especially if that state in question was a swing state.
3. Even if only HALF the number of poll participants follow through on their threat not to vote for Obama, it would still be a statistically significant number.
Democrats know they have a chance to dominate the government in washington for the first time in a long time. Do you really think that they'd throw that away for spite?
Why is about "spite?" Some don't like Obama. Some Republicans won't vote for McCain either, it's just that number is not as great, especially given the alternatives.
McCain doesn't share all of Bush's views but he shares enough and he is in favor of staying " A hundred if necessary " years in Iraq. Most aren't in favor of this.
And that's putting it mildly.
First, the "hundred years" comment is out of context. It's intellectually dishonest for you to use it, yet you keep doing so. And how many views are "enough?" He didn't support the Bush tax cuts, he opposes enhanced interrogation techniques, he wanted MORE troops in Iraq from day one, he opposes drilling ANWR, he pushed campaign finance reform (which Bush signed, but reluctantly) and he was part of the Gang of 14 on nominees. He's not Bush at all.
So even though Bush isn't running he'll play a significant role in this election ( whether he wants to or not ) .
Look, I agree with that. Why can you not admit the same about the significant number of people that say they will not vote for Obama?
A lot of people like Obama.
He's no Kennedy, but a lot of dems think he is, so OK.
[quote]He just seems to have a kind of magic when comes to bringing in the votes.[quote]
Really? He lost 6 of the last 13 primaries. Magic?
I think you mean CHANGE!
Something that most people out there see as a trend. McCain ain't it.
Yes, most democrats love Obama's CHANGE message. They have no clue what Change is, but they want it.
The thing I worry most about is assasination attempts ( just like Kennedy ). Funny the nut cases mostly go after the good guys and seldom the bad.
That's a terrible thing to say. Assassination of any candidate or office holder is unthinkable and horrifying. Your implication is that some politicians deserve it. What was the word you used? Oh yes, bastard. That's what I would say anyone is who wishes such a thing on another.
Also the republicans are worried. It's like the herd sensing the wind has changed. Even you who has to stoop to correcting my spelling.
They're worried about the future of the party, and rightly so. Most aren't too worried about Obama himself.
As for your spelling, you know full well it's not just that. You consistently use words that you don't understand. You make glaring grammatical errors repeatedly, such as "site" vs. "cite."
So all in all even though the democrats are doing stupid things right now ( mostly due to Hillary ) it won't matter in the long run.
Yeah, it's not like Obama's campaign has been stumbling all over the place. Reverend Wright. Guest pastors. Not really opposing NAFTA. Quitting his church. Saying he won't denounce Wright, then doing exactly that a month later.
By the way, did you know that Obama didn't know what memorial day was?
We're going to have hundreds of thousands of new veterans coming in, many of them who suffer post-traumatic stress disorder. They are not being diagnosed quickly enough, they're not getting the services that they need quickly enough.
And, sadly, the group of veterans that are probably being most neglected in this area are women veterans. We've got to do a better job of creating facilities...
... specifically for women veterans.
Awesome, flawless candidate you have there. Apparently he thought Veterans Day and Memorial Day are the same.
They talk like they'll be mad over Hillary now. But that's in the heat of the primaries. Later it'll fall around party lines. Even if Hillary keeps pushing until the convention.
Don't believe me? Just keep watching.
So your prediction is that McCain will take fewer Democratic and independent votes than Bush did? You think that ALL of these people will go for Obama, despite the polling data and Obama's problems in certain swing states and among white, working class voters? That's simply delusional, not to mention unrealistic and unlikely. Even Bush got some of those votes, and that was without utter Democratic turmoil.
Oh! I almost forgot! " Beyond that, no..most Democrats won't vote for him "
That deserves a :
Why? I meant McCain. Please attempt to read an comprehend.
