    Bloomberg prohibits big sodas and feeding the homeless. What big government nanny state regulations will the next mayor implement?

  2. EML says:

    130.Neither Santorm nor Perry would have lost the working-class whites and the hispanic votes as badly as the “47%-and-wetbacks go home” moron we nominated.
    ================================
    But they would’ve been decimated by white collar, educated, and suburban whites.

  3. Apologetic California says:

    If NYC votes for a Democrat mayor, the city is over.

    Anybody who wants future viability is running away as fast as he can from “Mr. I Love to fire People, Now Vote For Me”.

  5. Bitterlaw says:

    Jack thinks a successful business leader with a Harvard law degre and MBA is a moron? Jack must be a sad loser, jealousy must tear him up.

  6. jack says:

    So how did a “a successful business leader with a Harvard law degre and MBA” run such a fu**ed-up campaign?

  7. jack says:

    Even a college drop-out like Scott Walker runs a better campaign than “a successful business leader with a Harvard law degre and MBA”.

  8. Robbie says:

    The article in Politico on the 2016 possibilties shows Republicans have a deep bench, but some of the people mentioned are stretches in my opinion.

    Santorum and Perry are just old news. They both had their chances and lost. And if Michelle Bachmann thinks there’s a chance for her is 2016, then she’s even crazier than I ever imagined.

    People like Ayotte, Sandoval, Martinez, Haley, and Pence just won’t be presidential material in 2016. They’ve all got futures, but not as presidential contenders in four years.

    And as for Paul Ryan, I like him, but he was a losing VP choice and he comes from the House. I think he’s really dreaming if he thinks he can go from the House to the White House. He should have run for Senate this time around or governor in 2018.

  9. jack says:

    The winning ticket for the GOP in 2016 is Rubio, with either John Kasich or Scott Walker as his running mate.

  10. Bitterlaw says:

    He lost. If you think Santorum would have won, I can’t help you. Akin and Mourdock lost in states Romney won. The media would have made Santorum’s dead baby his running mate and he would have lost the House.

  11. Apologetic California says:

    We need to nominate a Rust Belt candidate. We haven’t nominated anything from there in a loooooonnng while.

  12. Robbie says:

    Scott Walker will be a player in 2016 for one big reason. We know he can take a punch and then fight back. Not everyone can do that in politics. Beating back the recall made Walker a contender in 2016.

    Jeb Bush proved he could take a punch as well in 2002. After the Florida recount, Democrats threw everything they had at him and made him their number one target. He got 56% or 57% of the vote though.

    Marco Rubio is the other name that gets a lot of play, but we don’t know whether he can take a punch yet. I suspect we’ll find that out over the next few years, but it will be important to learn that fact. Look at what happened to Perry. He got punched and fell away.

    They already have one.

    I don’t know that we need to nominate someone from the Rustbelt, but we definitely need to nominate someone who can speak to Rustbelt voters.

  15. EML says:

    Kasich has one of the lowest approval ratings of any governor in the country. If the Dims put a decent candidate against him in 2014, he is likely to lose.

  16. EML says:

    People like Ayotte, Sandoval, Martinez, Haley, and Pence just won’t be presidential material in 2016. They’ve all got futures, but not as presidential contenders in four years.
    ===============================
    Sandoval and Martinez will have been governor for 6 years at that point. Much better resume that a has been like Jeb Bush.

  17. Apologetic California says:

    15, Piss Poor Polling polled his JA a few months ago and they said he had the best improvement in JA among any governor they’ve seen. Mid-40s if I remember correctly, disapproval at high 30s.

    Walker needs to survive this John Doe kerfuffle first. Even then, that’s a big mark on his record.

    Kasich will win in 2014. You heard it here first.

    “Even as Mitt Romney’s fortunes in Ohio appear to have taken a turn for the worse, another Republican is riding high in the Buckeye State….

    It’s once-embattled Gov. John Kasich (R).

    Less than a year after he lost a big fight with the state’s labor unions on a ballot referendum (and acknowledged the defeat in very candid fashion), Kasich’s political brand is on the rise. A new Washington Post poll, in fact, suggests he’s now among the more popular governors in the country.

    According to the Post poll, 52 percent of registered Ohio voters now approve of Kasich’s job performance, compared to 37 percent who disapprove. His splits are even better — 56 percent positive and 31 percent negative — among independents.”

  19. jack says:

    “Other polls have shown Kasich making a similar turnaround in recent weeks — including a CBS News/New York Times/Quinnipiac University poll that showed 48 percent approving of Kasich and 35 percent disapproving.”

  20. Robbie says:

    Sandoval and Martinez will have been governor for 6 years at that point. Much better resume that a has been like Jeb Bush.

    Martinez and Sandoval, both of whom have futures, would not be noticed by most in the Republican party were they not Hispanics. I suspect they both may need to head to the Senate before they are seen as presidential contenders. VP is another thing though.

    As for calling Jeb a has been, just keep howling at the moon. He was the most successful Republican governor in the history of Florida. The only one to ever be reelected too. He governed in a conservative fashion, unlike his brother in Texas. He also has a national profile others don’t.

    Was Romney a has been in 2012? He had been out of office for six years before finally winning the nomination. He didn’t even bother to run for reelection in 2006 because he knew he’d lose. On top of that, Jeb will be two years younger than Romney was this time in 2016 and he governed a state three times larger than Romney’s and for twice as long.

  21. mtvphil says:

    John Kasich will be a solid contender on 2016 if he chooses to run. Several things need to go right for him, but he is as well positioned as anyone else at this point. Kasich-Martinez or Kasich-Rubio would both be solid tickets.

    Trolls are out and about this Wednesday

    Sad what this site has become.

    -EML,
    Bloomberg is a NannyIndependentBusinessmanElitistPrick, not a Democrat. A Democrat might institute a living wage, which will decimate a lot of businesses, and make it even harder for the poorest among us to find jobs. I would rather the State Senate go to the Dems than the Mayor’s office. If Cuomo had to deal with all Dems, that would be interesting. That would be a fight, instead of the accommodation for power that goes on now. Every time I go to fix up my house in Brooklyn, I keep trying to envision my property taxes in 10-20 years. It’s cheap now, but in 20 years, it will be a lot worse, if all of the goodies are given out the Dems keep asking for.
    I wonder if Tim would become a Republican if he lived in NYC?

  24. Jack says:

    Rdel,

    Anyone , even trolls, is better than mindless drones like you.

  25. Tim says:

    #24:
    With the mindless dribble you spouted off in your post, you had best find another person to convince to switch Parties.

    And, considering the recent Election results, no one believes you, anyway. LOL

    I suspect Jack and Robbie are one in the same person. Robbie was sad that no one was reading his posts so I he invented Jack!!!

    No, I’m not Jack.

    I guess you are sad that no one takes the delbov curve seriously so you’ve resorted to attacks.

  28. rdelbov says:

    Robbie are you saying that you do not know Jack.

    Jack Robbie I would discuss, again, with you the Delbov curve but I believe that its a bit beyond your ability to understand. I posted here several times in the last few months all the ins and outs of my thinking. I also did links but apparently it went right by you. You never commented on my delbov curves posts.

    I am not be on the defensive against your “attacks” and I think its silly for you to even accuse me or anyone here of personal attacks.

    I might add that numerous articles discussed some of the same points that I raised and here’s one:

    http://www.cnn.com/2012/11/05/politics/electoral-split/index.html

    http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/OTUS/obama-win-majority-electoral-college-fight-ensue/story?id=17567583

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/wonkblog/wp/2012/10/26/will-romney-win-the-popular-vote-but-lose-the-presidency/

    My 1st major point in pushing the delbov curve was that popular numbers and EC votes could move in the opposite direction due to swing state numbers. Many articles came up with that suggestion this year. I guess you did not get that memo from the DNC,
