30 Funny how just last week we were being lectured by Gov. Haley on civility, tolerance, and the need for the GOP to reach out to a wide variety of potential voters. The party is not about alienation, but inclusion.

Now NRO tells us that no, those icky people who actually support Trump, or who even just say they would vote for him over any Democrat should it come to that are stupid. They should be voting for a "true conservative" as defined by NRO. Because they're smarter and we should not think for ourselves?

Paths To The Nomination: Trump, Cruz, And Rubio By Robert Tracinski

Here is the calculation. If you add to Rubios RCP poll average the share currently going to the candidates who are most similar to him (Bush, Christie, and Carly Fiorina), he would be at a little over 22 percent in the polls, about four points higher than Cruz. its reasonable to speculate that Rubio would catch a significant percentage of the votes now going to the mild-mannered Carson, plus some undecideds and voters now supporting other minor candidates. That would put him between 25 percent and 30 percent, right up there between the two leading candidates.

The Federalist


If Rubio gets everybody else's votes, he wins! Well -- comes in second....

That's the sort of cutting edge political analysis you can only get at PAASB The Federalist.

That would have peeled off some undecideds and possible helped Cruz win Iowa. So I gave to ask myself why didn't they? A) TSTL or B) Hate Cruz

132 I think Trump's appeal, some of it at least, comes from the oft-mentioned "revenge" against the GOP, or some other emotional stimuli. How else do we end up with a rich New Yorker with lifelong Liberal tendencies being backed by those who consider themselves stouthearted conservatives? Those emotions, not reason, inform their choice, which is their right, but it also means they can never be reasoned out of that position. I'm waiting for the Primaries to start coming in before I make any predictions, this thing could go any number of ways, but I'm hoping Cruz emerges as the nominee and Trump will have done the country a service by puncturing the PC/MSM cultural bubble that envelops so many.

The essayists involved in this are not all Rich Lowrey/NRO Trump-bashers. Yes, there are a lot of names there that I wouldn't read (Glenn Beck), but most likely I will read others who I respect and that have proven to be consistently anti-establishment in the past.

they are calling support for Trump misguided, and stating quite clearly how Trump is not a conservative.

 

And, as has been repeated ad nauseam, had the "conservatives" - hell, had even the "moderates" in Congress actually done their fucking jobs and put a stake through every one of the dog-eating crackhead's illegal, unconstitutional acts and blocked his nominees, there would be no Trump candidacy at all!

 

The goddamned GOPe will not fight and will not advance conservative government.    If NRO thinks support for Trump is "misguided," then they need to address the 20-odd years of failure theater that the GOP has engaged in.

188 How do you keep your food stores from becoming contaminated by the radiation? (Not being snarky, just curious.)
Posted by: HR trinken trinken trinken at January 22, 2016 09:59 AM (zUlgQ)


Keep it covered in plastic.  (not being snarky)

Ionizing radiation doesn't harm food, it is used to sterilize it for irradiated tetrapack stuffs.
the main problem is the fallout contamination. 
That is prevented by not exposing your food and clothing and pets and self to the fallout.  (hence plastic)

Fallout is dangerous because it sticks you and is ingested by you and irradiates you, and a lot of the radioactive compounds are poisonous in their own right.

Some don't think it is a top priority
Some are profiting from it
Some are actively abetting it to position themselves better
Some have their fingers in their ears.
Some are Ron Paul and are treated as goofy syphilitic madmen by some of the classes listed above.

And the evidence is largely, "he said/did other things in the past."

I understand the appeal of using the past as a proxy to predict the future. But, from a rational standpoint, it's of no more value as "proof" than what he is saying today, is it?

Also, if you don't think the democrats are going to blast everything liberal and contrarian Trump had said about himself you're living in la-la land.

274 NRO, living in the DC - NY bubble, can't see reality. People are lined up around the block to listen to Trump. He's going to win by a landslide. Has Trump thought all the issues, from education to national defense through? Fuck no. Not even close. Is there some underlying principle that Trump will follow on all issues, so discerning what Trump will do is easy? Fuck no. Trump's a wild card who can swing any which way on every issue. So, if it's inevitable that he's going to be elected and he doesn't have a set-in-stone policy on every issue, where is he going to turn when he takes office? Well, not to NRO or any of their cronies. It's time to establish some sort of institution (cyber) where innovative policy solutions can be worked out and ready for implementation. That way, the temptation to use the same assholes who have fucked up the country for decades will be lessened.

275 NR whining cause they've been cut off from partnering a debate.

Says it's because "they spoke the truth about Trump".

Problem is, the voters don't believe you're telling the truth NR.

And why would that be? Because you've lied so much before.

And the elite has made it their hobby to disrespect Trump voters.

I can understand they have their opinions about Trump and some are certainly valid from their point of view.

But they've taken great pains over a number of months and various writers to tell those who like Trump that are idiots and dupes and stupid and childish and ignorant and and and ...

That's what's turned me off to NR. They're not attacking just the candidate, they're attacking me and others and we're not going to take that.

On top of the fact that we don't believe NR.

I was thinking today that it's maybe about time we put someone in as President that wasn't either a lawyer or was part of government before being President.

I looked back and there hasn't been anybody elected to the Presidency (except GW Bush but I think because his whole family is lawyers or Government (GHWB was in the CIA) he doesn't count) that wasn't previous part of Government or a lawyer. Next previous was Hoover a mining engineer.

Majority of our Presidents have been Lawyers.

Let's try something different. What the hell.

Very soon he will be winning primaries with over 50% of the delegates. He will quickly collect the 8 state majority wins he needs for the nomination. No one else will qualify for the nomination by the GOPe's own rules. Petard, hoist, assembly required.

Is the "America First" sentiment something that can be redirected, in your opinion? I'm dead serious here because I'd like to think there was a way to tap this very legitimate sentiment in a productive manner.

They're only concerned when the cats (that's us) become harder to herd. Now we are moving into the hectoring and lecturing portion of the election cycle, a little sooner than they'd like. Usually, they get their GOPe stamped candidate, and then tell the rubes about how this is a pivotal moment in history, and fall in line, and fuck you. This time the concern seems to be that not only will they not get "their" preferred candidate, but that they might win with the wrong one, and thus damage the shiny lustrous brand that is the Party.
