    I'm not a Democrat or a Obama supporter so me being an idiot is highly doubtful.

    And which candidate on the right is a idiot ?

    And with that statement, the odds changed dramatically.

    I don't know, maybe none. I guess we'll see when there is a candidate.

    No, there is no change in the " odds ", I'm no idiot

    I didn't buy into the bs manufactured narratives and faux outrage that the Democrats used to vilify Bush and I didn't buy into the bumper sticker slogans and outright lies that got our current disaster in chief elected.

    If you DID then thats your problem, not mine.

    I blame the electorate. I blame the electorate for being swayed by stupid slogans and listening to lies and succumbing to base ideas like punishing the poor or waging war on drugs. I blame the electorate for being so unrealistic as to buy the lie when a have tells them that they're all "soon to haves". I blame the electorate for being racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, and just generally selfish and petty. Our leaders reflect and reinforce our society, and our society needs a lot of work.



    I blame the electorate for being ignorant enough to say things like this, for example.



    I think all the voter suppression of black Floridians makes it even more that way. Without criminal interference by Bush's brother, he would have lost. And then without daddy's friends on the bench deciding to just give him the election, he would also have lost.



    By being so out of touch with reality that you think those accusations are actually true.



    If any other demographic voted as consistently as old white people, especially old white men, it would be a landslide victory for Democrats. It's insane how simple is to wrest power from these lunatics, but it doesn't happen.
    Its not easy to pack that much nonsense into a single post. But you did it. Congrats.

    It seems at this point if Hillary runs and wants the Democratic nomination it is hers. But if she doesn't run there are plenty of other options. Now I would discount Biden even though he is running second in most polls. But I think they would go with a relative new face.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Election demographics are very different than national demographics. This is magnified during mid terms. Those are just facts. Voters are typically much older and whiter than national demographics.
