Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

Twitter. But of course. I copied the statement from the White House website where I found it, but I should have figured it was a Tweet.

Well, Obama and Hillary both tweeted their statements, so they're of comparable length. Never mind.

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

This thought just struck me: Has Trump given any kind of statement regarding McCain? I hadn't heard of any, but it turns out he did. Statement from President Donald J. Trump Senator John McCain has always been a fighter. Melania and I send our thoughts and prayers to Senator McCain, Cindy, and their...

Re: Dunkirk reviews

"Christopher Nolan" - (Oh, Christ...)

"A masterpiece" - (You mean, like his others?)

"Score by Hans Zimmer" - (Stop! Please!)

"106 minutes" - (Actually, this film sounds promising.)

Re: The Official Review Thread of 2017

I’m going to sound like a grouch on ‘Baby Driver’ No, you're not. I am, because I hated it. And I'm very sorry I hated it because I've loved every other one of Edgar Wright's films, and it's the only movie I've seen in the theater since La La Land. I love his humor, and I love his audacity. The onl...

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

His favorability rating is 10 points lower now than it was on Election Day. Where do you get that information? According Huff's tracker, Trump's favorability rating was in mid-30s for a long time prior to the election. Then, after he got elected, it spiked, presumably because there were people will...

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

Sorry if I sounded in a state of despair or incite panic...I feel pretty positive in gains in the house and probably getting the Senate back by January of 2021...and that feels like it might be plenty to not pull our hair out over. Sight unseen I would simply not place any money down on him NOT win...

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

Yes, but... you do realize that while you pointed out that we live in a bubble (I watch none of those shows, FTR), you illustrated a bubble of your own. I'm sure your observations are exactly as you say they are. I'm sure things are similar in Fort Worth and Oklahoma City, too. But your observations...

That was released today. Also released was Rasmussen who no one with a brain would ever cite and it's at 47%.


Ipsos/CBS poll is at 34%.

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

There's still the electoral college to give him the edge next time around with the same set of voters and non-voters. Magilla, did you not see where Mister Tee said "Trump achieved margins of 0.22% in MI, 0.67% in WI, and 0.71% in PA"? He's not going to get exactly the same voters next ti...

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

I don't see any evidence that we're going to have 12 years of Republican dominance, unless we let burnout and low morale take over. If we think it's going to be a fait accompli , then that's what it will be. ETA: I shouldn't say I see no evidence. I know there's evidence that things could go either ...

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

There are always rumors nearly every term. They're meaningless until the actual announcement.

Remember all those years Ginsburg was supposed to retire?
