    The GOP is simply Willie Horton on steroids and now to a higher exponent these days.

    Still the party of Nixon, driving up the negatives of a DEM and driving down voter participation by turning off voters and with voter suppression.

    While lying about Clinton's emails being equal to Nixon's 18-minute gap .
    There's such a lack of talent in the GOP for decades they can only pull they're presidents from one family.

    That's correct. He has enough money to finance his own campaign, however his energy conservation credentials are valid. He beat Bush by half a million votes and the SCOTUS gave Bush the big job and Bush did the Big Job on us. The Nation still hasn't recovered. Gore's money came from his Daddy Senator's OIL investments and that is correct. It takes someone with big independent money to take on Big Energy and Big Banking. That makes him more viable than many other candidates, especially form my GREEN point of view.

    Al Gore's energy credentials are ****

    Al Gore's 'Inconvenient Truth'? -- A $30,000 Utility Bill - ABC News

    and the oil money I was referring to was not his dad's but his sale of Current TV to Al Jazeera whose money comes from fossil fuels and they also fund terrorism

    not to mention that Gore is boring and uninspiring he makes Mitt Romney look like a real human

    We'll see if this email thing may hold water but latest polls have hillary 35+ points ahead of all other potential candidates (Warren, Biden etc.).

    Whereas on the Republican end we'll see interesting primaries, Bush and Walker within a few points of eachother holding the lead at this time.

    Doesn't mean anything til we get properly started though.
    I have this feeling that the 2016 election is the Rep's to lose... and somehow they will probably manage just that.

    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    None for the DEMs .



    They don't even know that most states before the Civil War used the Congressional District method for allocating Electoral Votes .
    it doesn't matter who wins the popular vote.. it's irrelevant... meaningless.

    but yeah, states can allocate their electoral votes in any way they want... most choose the "winner takes all" approach, except for 2

    oy vey... I didn't know that "bush stole the election " or the "SCOTUS gave Bush the presidency' myth was still around.... they should have died long ago, on the merits.

    I mean really... how do you lose to an anti-American who was mentored by Marxists, racists and associated with known terrorists?
    You want to know why you lost? Your post is self evident.

    Yep, pretty much what most of the experts are saying....

    The missing story of the 2014 election - GOPlifer
    Can a Republican Win 270 Electoral Votes in 2016...or Ever? - The Daily Beast
    The Democrats have a lock on the White House - MarketWatch

    The reason the Republicans are working so hard to roll back the Imperial presidency is their recognition that their chances of actually winning the White House for the foreseeable future are pretty slim. Its too bad they won't recognize what they need to do to win the White House is to actually recognize America's changing demographics and embrace it. The Dems learned a long time ago that the White House is won by appealing to the middle rather than the extremes of the party.
