Cancelling A10 Warthog

 

Does that fall this blog?

 

Cancelling the Warthog sounds like a terrible idea to me.

Hello King,

 

That was a fair reply. I was overly concise.

In front of a friendly audience or talking about topics she is comfortable with, she is great.

I incorrectly indicated that she was like former Boston Mayor Menino who could not accomplish the above.

I had hoped to avoid discussing the issue of whether or not Elizabeth Warren has Native American ancestry. In trying to avoid it I said something other than what I had intended.

When responding to questions regarding whether she had used false claims of Native American ancestry to advance herself, Warren looked very unpresidential.

I never saw Obama look that uncomfortable but admittedly I did not follow him as closely in his early years.

In general, my opinion is that for Warren the gap between speaking to a friendly audience vs speaking extemporaneously to a critical audience is a bigger issue than for many other politicians. The Massachusetts Democratic Party and media lined up behind Warren in her last election. For Biden there is no gap. He sounds foolish regardless.

If Warren were not likely (vs almost certainly) to face Clinton in the primary she would be in good shape. The media would be on Warren's side in the primary and on the side of whoever gets the Democratic nomination.

I think Warren will be unprepared for the barrage she will face from Clinton.

Much of the combat will be between surrogates.

But, the path to victory for Clinton is to get Warren in a deer in the headlights moment.

Since both candidates have published books since their last campaigns, when presented with uncomfortable questions they may just say "I covered that in my book."

But if Clinton can get Warren back on her heels I think Clinton can tip her over.

Clinton has no incentive to hold back. Regardless of the primary, it is difficult to imagine many voters changing their opinion of Clinton.

Scott Brown had substantial incentive to hold back.

The conflict for the African American vote will be challenging with Obama supporting Warren but the Clintons having long had large support from the African American community.

Given the sympathetic treatment that Warren has been given in Massachusetts, I do not think that she will be prepared to face Clinton. Even if she gets the nomination she may be too scarred for the general election.

Facing a friendly audience such as NPR or grilling someone from her senate seat Warren does very well. I just do not see how she will be prepared for Clinton.

I say all of the above having voted for Warren when presented with a worse alternative and will likely do so again.

YouTube has video of Warren hiding behind Governor Patrick when asked about the Native American issue. Should be damaging in primary and general election.

Waren is not a good public speaker?  I think a lot of Democrats disagree, since she's in more demand for speaking engagements all over the country than just about anyone other than Obama himself or the Clintons.

 

A May 25, 2014 article in The Economist titled "Curious ambitions" said, "Leaving aside the content of her policies, Mrs Warren is a punchy public speaker: crisp, clear and impassioned in tone, rather than strident. "

I voted for Elizabeth Warren simply because I found the alternative much, much less appealing.

I did vote for Scott Brown in his first federal election.

When I wrote former Senator Scott Brown when he was in office, the replies from his office were stunningly rude.

He seemed to be begging me to vote against him.

Brown is the darling of one host on talk radio station WRKO.

I would like to actively boycott advertisers of the station if I can do so without breaking any laws.

Fool me once....

 

Warren is not a good public speaker.

Rick Perry may look good in comparison when speaking extemporaneously.

Warren's background has issues that will not be overlooked in battleground states.

The fact that her victory was even as close as it was reflects badly on her.

 

Massachusetts Democratic Party had Warren's challengers stand now.

Now Warren may be the insurgent.

Clinton/Warren primary fight should be entertaining.

More damaging for Warren than Clinton.

If Warren gets the nomination she may emerge too damaged to win the general election.
 

Regardless of who I want to win, if Jeb Bush gets the Republican nomination, hard to to imagine Hillary losing the general election if she gets the nomination.

 

Can reasonable people differ on whether Texas flips to Democratic during our natural lifetimes? If Texas flips that makes the bar really high for Republicans.

 

I said nothing novel or insightful, but it was still fun to participate.

 

ROC, you are a handsome man. You should get plenty of attention from women in real life.

we can end most conflicts with the internet if we  want to



Actually, Roc; the internet has brought issues forward, and has allowed for a more informed public, with new ways of solving problems. It has also influenced opinion's in high Gov't office. As far as ending conflict,  Zazille; That remains a paradigm in the minds that create the conflict. Some fail to see the forest, while viewing the tree's. Look at all of the info., on conflicting views on the Net. All sides know each side's opine; still conflict. There are positive outcomes due to this aggressive info. age. Most choose the hill they want to die, or compromise on.

Quoting leonicvirgo:

The plot thicken's in the VA Gov. McDonald case. Seem's She, according to Mc Donald; Was a Jetset, excentric Shopper, with ane eye for the Man Donor- an estranged Marriage. He knew her bills, and did not have someone, doing the $$$$$$Math? 2 Felony charges, with both. This is either, a spindoctor,exit strategy, or a Cat fight in the disparingly, pawing state.  (-:LV1:-) 

 

Moving right along...Perry? (-::-)

In an NPR interview, today, The State Dept. shirked the idea of vacation golf, and engagement to the problem's at hand, by the President. Further analysis of Obama's vacation days, from the Downturn That Upturned, due partly to Directives; He's about average. I'm assured,by his address of the ball; that he's stroking for someone, with the power of that Leo drive. Temper, Now;Mr. President!

You might have a point.  How difficult would it be to get all Muslim women who are virgins to post selfies.  Do you think ISIS idiots access the Internet eveyday.

No one can lie, of the devistation of 2008, coupled with 2,under supplied, dominant army's; for the will,of, some other President. 2013-2014 was ruled, the pullout timeline, by the top 5 Candidate's, in the 2007-2008 New Year's Gala Ball. The no care,Romney, tape, sunk him in 2012. Palin could'nt even pail water fast enough, with one SNL female. She recovered...'Cause' She's still PALIN' the 'residual's'... http://youtu.be/vwBZObfp24c...Whatever!

 

"Hillary Clinton is ending her campaign, but really in the bigger sense it's sad because, think about it, there goes right down the drain the Clinton dream of a being a two-impeachment family." --David Letterman

 

New Rule: Republicans trying to turn the Benghazi attacks into a scandal that taints Hillary Clinton’s chances at a 2016 presidential run must realize that scandals don’t weaken Hillary Clinton, they only make her stronger. Travelgate, the Rose Law Firm, Whitewater, Vince Foster, Monica Lewinsky…Hillary Clinton eats scandals for breakfast. If the Republicans keep this up she’ll not only be President, she’ll appoint Bill to the Supreme Court." –Bill Maher

The latest Obama Approval Rating Gallup Poll for the week of July 21-27 

 

 

Approve..........  41%

Disapprove .....  53%

 

 

 

... Approval rating by gender

 

Male ............    38%

 

 

Female ........     43%

 

 

 

.... Approval by age

 

 

 

18-29 ..........     49%

 

 

30-49 ..........     42%

 

 

50-64 ..........     40%

 

 

65+  ...........     32%

 

 

 

Notice the trend.  Older, more experienced Americans who have had the opportunity to live under a wider variety of Presidents appear to be less impressed thand the younger kids.

! Threaded a Gallup Obama Popularity Pole link, that disapeared, here...47%, with 6% undecided; up from the high 20's, a year ago, due to stagNation, of the GOP. Go for impeachment, if one dare to walk the broken glass path. Late Nite needs new monologue material, as well as Candidate's talking "Smack", on the Campaign trail! 

 

Directives insure Direction. :-)



I found this pole in Gallup, NM
