Don't tell them that. They think Obama wiped the floor with McCain, even though McCain said the best answer to the economic problem was a spending freeze and Obama said five minutes later that we need to rebuild the Georgian economy.

If Abraham Lincoln ran today, he'd never win the Dem nomination because women would never go for him. It's all about a man's look, whether they admit it or not.

Rubio, Jindal, Christie

My stepbrother works in state politics in Florida. Republican. He's been telling me for two months that the election was over and Romney had zero chance. Even after the first debate. He speaks glowingly of those three.

Rubio is nothing more than Pat Robertson as a young latino. I know he has hype around him, but once people see how far right he is, he's going nowhere.

The other two are decent. Though I can't imagine our society will elect a giant fatty any time soon.

Who was that?

Really? Put a beard on John Kerry and he is Lincoln's freaking twin.

Saying it's about looks is rich coming from the party who just nominated Generic Handsome Template Male #132.

Kerry couldn't even beat Bush.

Kennedy beat Nixon. Why? The women vote.

Clinton beat Dole. Why? The women vote.

Obama beat McCain. Why? The women vote.

Not saying anything about how each man did as president, just pointing out that the three men on the right all had physical limitations or were going up against younger, more virile opponents, and the female vote did them in. Honest Abe wouldn't stand a chance.

Didn't Obama get like 96% of the Black female vote?

Me thinks they thought he was a hottie.

Every democrat gets over 90% of the black female vote.

Remnant of the Southern Strategy they're gonna have to live with for a long time.

That single scream clip is what sunk him. If the media didn't make a fuss out of it, nobody would have noticed and things may have been very different. He was in the lead at that point and was gaining major steam, basically the father of the modern 'progressive' movement.

That's always your stock answer, but there's something you always leave out.

Double or triple the turnout for Obama. Big difference.
