so, an incumbent gets handed some election failures, as has happened to other incumbents. then the incumbent with lousy poll numbers gets a "bunch" of victories in the Supreme Court and in diplomacy and elsewhere. The GOP who got into all these offices can't get nuthin' done. Why can't they get nuttin done? Well, if it was Democrats who got all those victories, the answer would be, "They can't get anything done b/c they suck."

will all these "liberal" victories be red meat to be thrown at the GOP faithful, to get them off the couch and vote? of course they will. might they convince "liberal voters" there's no need to go to the voting booth? maybe. the GOP is looking for its identity, is it pro business or little guy, anti government or pro social intervening, but they might not need to throw so many "codeswitch" phrases around, the GOP faithful might just think up their own fears of Iran and gay marriage everywhere. Jeb might not have to do it himself, and sail down the middle of the river without having to throw so much mud.

lets see what Trump says about Iran by noontime.

Looks like Karma is still heading forward........

From the Inquisitr:


Hillary Clinton faces growing trust deficit

Recent polls are showing a growing percentage of Americans do not trust former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Yahoo News reports the Democratic front-runner for 2016 is viewed favorably by 39 percent of Americans, while being viewed unfavorably by 49 percents, from the latest Associated Press-GfK poll. In the same poll in April, Clinton had a 46 percent positive rating and a 41 percent negative rating.


The view of Clinton among Democrats is declining, as well. While the April AP-GfK poll showed 81 percent of Democrats having a positive view of the former Secretary of State, the latest of the same poll shows that falling to 70 percent approval among Democrats. Nearly a quarter of Democrats now have an unfavorable view of Hillary Clinton.

The Associated Press quoted Donald Waters, a voter from Louisville, Kentucky, as saying about Hillary, “I used to to like, but I don’t trust her. Ever since she’s announced her candidacy for the presidency I just haven’t like the way she’s handled things. She doesn’t answer questions directly.”

When asked in the AP-GfK poll if voters believed certain words describe Clinton well, those measures of the impression of voters of Hillary have fallen since April. While 47 percent of voters viewed Clinton as “decisive,” that was down nine percent from April. Three percent fewer voters viewed her as “likeable,” for which 41 percent viewed Hillary. Only 37 percent find Clinton “inspiring,” which is down seven percent from April. Those viewing her as “honest” were 31 percent, down six percent from April. The poll also asked voters if they view Hillary as “competent,” which 48 percent did, and “compassionate,” which 40 percent did. Those two terms were not included in the April survey.

Hillary’s poll numbers among Democrats are falling, Business Insider reports, because “Clinton’s standing is falling among Democrats, and voters view her as less decisive and inspiring than when she launched her presidential campaign just three months ago, according to a new Associated Press-GfK poll.”

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders is gaining ground on Hillary in national polls, as well. Politico reports that Hillary leads Sanders by a 51 percent to 17 percent margin in a new Monmouth University poll. Clinton polled 57 percent in June and 60 percent in April, in earlier numbers from Monmouth University polls.

Last month, a Quinnipiac University Swing State Poll showed majorities of voters in Florida, Ohio, and Pennsylvania do not trust Hillary Clinton. The growing trust deficit the former Secretary of State faces is shown by those polls, and the most recent national polls as well.

Hillary announced her second campaign for president in April, earlier this year, as the Inquisitr reported. Clinton was the front-runner for president in 2008, and lost the race for the Democratic nomination to Barack Obama.

@ skoochie:
In political discussions, I know that many times people insult each other in order to defend their point of view, that's fine, BUT, calling a man with a woman's name just because you didn't like his view on the politic topic?..Is that your "smart" way to defend your politic view.?
You DO know he is not going to answer your offensive post, because his name is not Becky...Right?

The man that you are trying to humiliate, seems to be a nice, educated, polite and friendly man. I've never seen him offensive to anyone, and this is the reason why I do not like the way you disrespect him, and insist that you and SOME others show respect to him as the THE MAN he is.
He has the RIGHT to communicate his true opinion/view about any topic in the Forum, the same way as everyone else.

I did write this in another thread, AND, I will post it here AGAIN:



a poster wrote:..I would recommend etourdi and "becky" ... now that's a team!!


April wrote:...I think she's naming/calling a man with a woman's name, Is that a sarcasm?, or she's just being mean and disrespectful.
I did notice that some men are also doing that, and my question for them is:
Would you like to be calling with a woman's name and with a laughing emoticon, like she does to this person?
What is your "gain" as a man by disrespecting another man like that?
Why some of you as men support that kind of abuse?
Some people are crossing the line, and enough is enough.!!
IMO, This person deserves to be respected, and it doesn't matter if you like him or not,
No one should call a man with a woman's name... Never.!


I want to let you know that I did report you.!! And if the person you are offending, also report you will be 2 reports against you, because of this:

Damn Becky, you sure got you panties in a wad in that post.


Demeaning name calling is NOT okay.!!

Have a nice weekend.!!

April.

Hillary Clinton is trailing the 3 strongest Republican candidates in 3 key swing states

Business Insider
By Brett LoGiurato
1 hour ago

Hillary ClintonFormer Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is trailing three Republican presidential candidates in three key swing states, according to a new set of polls released Wednesday morning by Quinnipiac University.

In Colorado, Iowa, and Virginia, the Democratic front-runner Clinton is behind former Gov. Jeb Bush of Florida, Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin, and US Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida in theoretical general-election matchups.

Rubio and Walker outpace Clinton by as much as 9 points in those states. Another Democratic candidate, US Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont), runs close to or outpaces Clinton in the matchups with Rubio, Walker, and Bush.

Here's the breakdown:
•Bush leads Clinton 41-36 in Colorado; 42-36 in Iowa; and 42-39 in Virginia.
•Walker leads Clinton 47-38 in Colorado; 45-37 in Iowa; and 43-40 in Virginia.
•Rubio leads Clinton 46-38 in Colorado; 44-36 in Iowa; and 43-41 in Virginia.

Clinton had led those candidates in the three states in a set of Quinnipiac polls released in April. All three are key swing states that President Barack Obama captured in the 2008 and 2012 elections and that Republicans will be looking to turn red in 2016.

Clinton has hinted that she views this trio of Republican candidates as her likely opponents in the general election. During a sweeping economic speech in New York last week, she took jabs at each candidate's policies.

The percentage of voters in the three states who view Clinton as "honest and trustworthy" has plunged: By more than 25-point margins, most voters in Colorado and Iowa say she is not honest and trustworthy. The split is still negative, though less so, in Virginia. A breakdown:
•In Colorado, voters say she is not honest and trustworthy by a 62-34 split.
•In Iowa, voters say she is not honest and trustworthy by a 59-33 split.
•In Virginia, voters say she is not honest and trustworthy by a 55-39 split.

Voters in all three states also view her decidedly unfavorably — by splits of 35-56 in Colorado, 33-56 in Iowa, and 41-50 in Virginia.

A majority of voters in all three states say she does "not care about their needs and problems." And her ratings as a "strong leader" have also dipped, though they are still over the key 50% threshold.

"Hillary Clinton's numbers have dropped among voters in the key swing states of Colorado, Iowa, and Virginia," Peter Brown, the assistant director of the Quinnipiac University poll, said in a statement. "She has lost ground in the horse race and on key questions about her honesty and leadership.

"On being a strong leader, a key metric in presidential campaigns, she has dropped 4 to 10 points depending on the state, and she is barely above 50% in each of the three states."

Yeah? Well he did ...
This is a forum completely without moderators, so you are free to post in any manner that you wish. Carry on.


And he wrote that because he's just as guilty at pulling stunts in here as anyone else. He changes the names of threads in order to antagonize others as well ... not any kind of an angel in any way, shape, or form.

LMFAO ... He sure has you hornswoggled ... eh?



I can't wait for the debates ... get your pens ready ... we're gonna hear a lot of telephone numbers we never wanted to begin with.
Bush - puke - who would want to call him?
Walker - too much bad stuff to start listing
Paul - plagiarizer
Rubio - "teadipper"
Carson - worse than a nightmare
Huckabee - defends child molester Josh Duggar ..
Cruz - don't want to hear his bedtime stories
Christie - don't want to hear about who's going down tonight
Perry - whoops


April: people like that grew up in homes where insult and hostility were interpreted as affection.
With that in mind ... I suppose we could say that people who are dumb grew up in homes where dumb and dumber were the mindset and accepted as nothing unusual?

You just "smile and nod" and back away.
Is that what we need to do with the "dumb" ones in here?

Or should we try to enlighten them? Help them in a step by step process in understanding the ways of the world?

MSNBC Hosts Absolutely Shocked by Clinton’s ‘Stunning’ Drop in New Poll (It’s Bad)
Jul. 22, 2015 8:59am Mike Opelka


At MSNBC, Wednesday morning started with multiple attacks on Donald Trump, but quickly shifted focus when some new poll data showed a “stunning” problem brewing in Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

A new poll from Quinnipiac University “Q Poll” shows Mrs. Clinton with growing, negative “favorability” ratings in Iowa, Virginia and Colorado.

Mika Brzezinski announced, “I think we kinda missed a lede here.” The co-host seemed a little surprised by the new numbers showing leading democratic candidate’s increasing “unfavorable” ratings in some key swing states.

In addition to Clinton’s problems in Iowa, Virginia and Colorado, the new poll also shows the presumed nominee has trouble when she faces some of the leading GOP candidates. According to the new Quinnipiac poll of Iowa voters, the former secretary of state would lose by a wide margin to Jeb Bush, Scott Walker and Marco Rubio.

An astonished Joe Scarborough could barely contain himself: “Those numbers are stunning.”

Looking for some clarity on the polling data, Scarborough asked “Meet The Press” host Chuck Todd, “What does the Democratic party do about numbers like this in Iowa, Virginia and other important swing states — Colorado for gosh sakes?”

Todd shared his analysis: ”If it wasn’t for Donald Trump, the biggest story of the summer would be Hillary Clinton’s problems solidifying herself inside the party.”

“This also fits another pattern of hers,” said Todd. “Whenever she’s been out front as the face of the Democratic party, her numbers have gone down. They always have.”

“Why is that?” Scarborough wondered. To which Todd quickly replied, “You could simply say, she doesn’t ‘wear well.’”

Yeah. That's pretty much how I see it. She's just so cravenly ambitious that she's always had low trust numbers. Her husband had low trust numbers as well, but he was very likable. Hillary isn't.

Remember that as a Senator she was very right wing. She wrote a bill proposing a Constitutional ammendment banning flag burning. The symbol of freedom is more important than actual freedom. But of course, nobody thinks that was anything but craven pandering to the right. So it leaves a bad taste in everyone's mouth.

I didn't think she could win 8 years ago, and I doubt that she can win now. If the Republicans nominate someone even worse though, she'll probably win. And at the moment all the declared candidates are worse.

I don't place any value on anything that comes out of Joe (the scumbag) Scarborough's mouth. He's a murderer and Mika is an idiot.

I'm not crazy about Hillary so if they want to trash her, I could care less. aj just comes in here every chance he can get to trash her ... so I don't place any value on what he says either.

If he bothered to come in here with some original thoughts ... not parrot talk from Fox National Republican Bullshit Network ... more people would be willing to take him seriously. At this point, his reputation is in the toilet most especially since he claims he voted for President Obama but has been trashing him the entire time he's been president ...

So speaking of Karma:

Poll: Republican Party approval ratings lowest in decades
By Paul Singer

The already raucous Republican presidential campaign may be hurting the party’s brand.

Only 32% of respondents said they had a favorable opinion on the Republican Party in a new Pew Research Center poll published Thursday — the lowest number Pew has reported at any point since 1992, though there have been a couple of 33% ratings during that time. The party is viewed unfavorably by 60% of respondents, again the party’s worst score.

The results mark a steep drop for the party since the start of the year. In January, Pew found that 41% of poll respondents had a favorable view of the GOP, while 53% were unfavorable.

Oddly, the biggest drop in GOP favorability is among Republicans.

Sanders Surges, Hillary Drops in New Gallup Poll

Image: Sanders Surges, Hillary Drops in New Gallup Poll (Charlie Leight/Getty Images; Alex Wong/Getty Images)


By Jason Devaney | Friday, 24 Jul 2015 05:47 PM


Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is becoming more popular among voters as he contends for the Democratic nomination in the presidential race, while Hillary Clinton's numbers are falling.

A new Gallup poll finds that Sanders' favorability rating has doubled since March, rising from 12 percent to 24 percent. Since April, Clinton's favorability rating has slipped from 48 percent to 43 percent.

Further, Clinton's unfavorable rating is now 46 percent, leading to a net favorable rating of -3 percent — her lowest score since 2007, according to Gallup.

Regarding Sanders' numbers, 44 percent of likely voters in the Gallup poll were able to rate him, an increase of 20 percent since March — meaning he is gaining more visibility.

Other highlights from the Gallup poll:
•Among Democrats and left-leaning independents, Clinton's favorability rating has dropped from 79 percent to 74 percent since April.
•Clinton's favorability rating has fallen from 44 percent to 36 percent among independents, while 14 percent of Republicans and right-leaning independents hold a favorable view of her.
•75 percent of women hold a favorable view of Clinton, compared to 32 percent for Sanders.

Sanders has surged in other recent polls as he contends for a spot on next year's presidential ballot.

The results of a Quinnipiac University survey released earlier this month showed Sanders was gaining on Clinton, although he still trailed her, 52 percent to 33 percent.

Sanders' surge prompted a Clinton aide to admit the campaign is growing "worried."

Clinton, on the other hand, has been dogged by a scandal all year regarding her use of a private email address and server during her time as secretary of state. It was reported Friday morning that the Justice Department was looking into the matter criminally, a claim that was later refuted.

Well according to ISideWith.com, I'm feeling Bernie Sanders at 89% or was it 85%, I forget, and Hillary at 75%. Of course that's just a simple match up, I haven't heard much from anyone yet that has gotten me excited.

I don't think too many liberals are worried about those emails, other than if it's important, then lets investigate all of them, otherwise it's just another tiresome witch hunt.

I think you are hanging your hat on Hillary being the candidate because you think she will lose. As a liberal and speaking for myself, I don't know that she will be the candidate and I don't know what candidate will end up winning. I think Trump is making such a joke out of an important part of our government that important things are not being talked about much. The GOP seems to still be stuck in the let's-make-as-much-of-a-stink-as-we-can so no one pays attention to what they are doing. I can't take any of them seriously, and the Tea Party Super Christian far right, they make me sick.

Let me get this straight...not only is Hillary beating the entire republican field, but Bernie Sanders is too?

well yeah... You expected less...?

It's so obvious that even Obama had to call it for what it is...

Obama: Trump, Huckabee are 'ridiculous' and 'sad'

ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia — It took flying across the world to get President Barack Obama to talk about Donald Trump — and let loose.

Responding at first to a question about former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee’s comments that the Iran nuclear deal is like marching Israelis “to the ovens,” Obama said it’s “part of a general pattern that you’ve seen that would be considered ridiculous if it weren’t so sad.”
....

Republicans who complain about Trump now, or criticized him for questioning the war heroism of Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), are either being stupid or insincere, Obama said.

“The Republican Party is shocked, and yet that arises out of a culture where those kinds of outrageous attacks have become far too commonplace and get circulated nonstop through the Internet and talk radio, news outlets,” Obama said at a joint news conference with the Ethiopian prime minister here at the Jubilee Palace.
