Anti-Religion leftist.



Whack job who shouldn't be allowed buy a gun buys an assault rifle and a shit ton of magazines and ammo because the Air Force screwed up and didn't enter him into the database that would flag him. He has a long history of violence against family members and for some fucked up reason decides to kill his in laws and everybody at their Church because of a dispute with them. Police have said the only motivation they can find is a family dispute.

really? so we already have laws in place that say a whacko like him isn't allowed to have a gun...but the government in general sucks at doing its job and screwed up...so the obvious solution is to make more laws, that go against our own constitution, so our government can screw those up as well? Good idea Bob...you are on your game today!

Another decent rebuttal of the Hillary Victory Fund broohaha

LOL......Your decent rebuttal left out one important fact. True HVC sent that money to those states and those states promptly sent the money to the DNC. In the end the states retained approximately 10% of the money.

But then she reportedly spent resources in various states for downticket candidates so while they may have not directly controlled more than 10% they would have gained the benefit of more than 20%.

It seems like a moot point though; as more and more the voter base is divided into more separate fragments, the more people are voting for a single party on their ballot and there the more and more advertising should go party brands than individual candidates.

Virginia is a blue state in a blue region. The GOP isn't going to be hurt by this outcome. 14 seats is nothing.

That being said, I don't think Trump wins reelection. (Unless Hillary runs again)

The number of seats lost and the location of those seats is not why Republicans should be concerned.

Really?

So if the dems pick up one seat in Hawai'i the GOP should be super concerned?

That's not what I'm saying at all. I'm saying the number of seats won this week in Virginia and New Jersey are largely irrelevant when looking at the big picture, but you can take away a lot more from these elections than simply the number of seats won and which way the state traditionally leans.

I'll go into more detail later if you genuinely want to have a discussion about this, but suffice it to say that I think the Republicans should be very worried as we head towards 2018 for several reasons.

Paragraph 1 I totally agree with, 2 probably not but I would love to hear your logic.

The general idea with these state and special elections the winner is generally already pre-determined by the state demographics (and gerrymandering...).

But what of interested to people looking at 2018 / 2020 is the size of victory. ie: if it's a district normally won by Republicans by +20% and in a election they only win by +5%. Remove a certain amount of % because in side elections people like to send signals so you could predict that there's currently a shift of 5-10% away from the Republicans in my hypothetical example.

Interesting that you find these 2 unfit for office for being accused of garbage and have not a shred of evidence....but bob is on trial for corruption and you lefties never even give it a thought.

I don't think either has any qualities in their character or intellect that qualify them to hold any public office. The fact they are both perverts is a small part of it.

Careful about talking about corruption when you support Trump.

I assume you're talking about Sen Menendez from the great State of New Jersey. Yah, he's a scumbag.

Now why would you complain about that? It hasn't stopped you ...

Also evidence? How about Trumps own words:
