Topic Wiki

Thread summary:

Trump walks in a room.

1. Moshe123 shoots at him because he is pure evil, 2. ilherman+hachover jump in front of the bullets because Trump is our savior. 3. aygart tackles Moshe123 because Trump is better than HRC, 4. but Baruch can't stand Trump so he tells aygart he's crazy and Trump is a madman. 5. ExGingi would like to point out that who cares what he is, all that matters is the supreme court nominations. 6. Dan and others aren't really sure how this makes them feel plus they don't really want to drink poison. 7. Spoiler alert: Moshe123's gun was empty, it was just a blank.

And Freddie is in the back of the room just cooking his cholent. Until he announces that there are TWO menu choices, Pareve Cholent or Vegetable Lasagna. While etech0 figured out that they are both poisoned.


Repeat x100.

And then Hilary walks into the room with the most confidence a candidate has had in recent history. She is so confident that she eats both the Pareve Cholent and Vegetable Lasagna. Everyone is the room is aghast, they don't know how this happened, could it be Comey is behind this poisoning or was it that her Obamacare premiums were to high to get her the help she needed.

Everyone stared as she choked and was cast into oblivion on November, 8, 2016 the last day she was heard from in the public eye.

Moshe123, ilherman, hachover, Baruch, ExGingi, Dan, Freddie, etech0, and the rest of America are in total shock and hope that so long as Trump doesn't eat any Pareve Cholent and Vegetable Lasagna and stays true to his supreme court nominees this may be the greatest thing to happen since the CSR and GC's.

But remember this may be the beginning of the end...

P.S. Thanks to cognitive dissonance aygart, Michael Moore, and Scott Adams knew the whole time that Trump could win, unfortunately for JTZ he may be off DDF for the next 4 years due to his mandatory 3 times daily consumption of CROW!

As things turns out, the most prescient view on this election was that of Michael Moore! Though Scott Adams is also claiming a high view level of prescience.

IIRC he made that argument, but it was/is a very weak one in the big scheme of government mandating the purchase of insurance. So are you saying that the federal government isn't allowed to force people to buy some but state government is allowed to do same?
+1

There were 2 complaints against Obamacare: 1. It's unconstitutional, and 2. It's bad policy.

Romney was able to counter the first by differentiating between state and federal (until the Roberts decision), but could never effectively counter the second.

I remember his awkward speech after the Roberts decision, saying it may be good law, but it's still bad policy. Seriously?
If you don't care why would you comment?

Romney likely lost because of the 47% video.
Will Hillary lose over Pnemonia? It's definitely possible. It's really up to Trump to not lose it after this weekend.

I need to disagree with you there. The 47% remark eventually blew over. Romney was leading in most polls up until hurricane Sandy which seemingly changed everything.

Also, what political analysts didn't take into account is voter turnout. They assumed that the excitement over Obama died down over his first term. They didn't take into account that Obama was a deity to Black and Hispanic voters. They came with unusual and unexpected enthusiasm to vote in 2012.

You are digging too deep when the answer is on the surface.

The media grilled Romney with the question of "So you are against Obamacare? OK, tell us what your plan is for healthcare!"

You see, the Democrats set the narrative so that it is as though everyone agrees that  there must be changes made to our healthcare system. Now that there must be changes, what was Romney's healthcare plan?

...and those undecided voters took the bait.

These Dems are just dropping like flies now.......

Sounds almost like the "Je suis Charlie" slogan.

What next? "J'ai une pneumonie" T-shirts? Maybe coming out of John Kerry with his perfect French, or maybe "Tengo neumonía" is a more catchy phrase and will be coming from Kaine's mouth.

Why is she suddenly toast? There have been tons of negative campaign ads. At the end of the day, she's running against Donald Trump. Against anyone else she should've been toast, but she's running against the one person that she possibly looks better than.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

If Hillary was running against anyone else she would be dead in the water.
If Trump was running against anyone else he would be dead in the water.

How crazy is that?

Amazing that you guys still don't comprehend that Trump supporters actually like Trump and think he would be a great president. He didn't get where is by accident.

Veggie lasagna Kasich or Rubio would be up 70-30 right now.
Your Gulash is under 50/50 against the worst D candidate in a generation.

He got where he is do a massive and fractured R nominee field. The problem is that so many Rs detest him that his ardent supporters aren't enough.

Yes, but his non supporters detest him. A campaign ad like this isn't suddenly converting too many people to be Trump supporters.
