Yes, really. I mean, what else is Murkowski going to say, Leon? "I fucked up! Don't vote for me!"Riiight.
Tell me what changes Obama made to NAFTA?
Not long ago, a Journo who said to their Editor : "I heard it from a guy who says he heard it from another guy" would have been laughed out of the office. But if it's Anti-Trump, it's good to go!"Accountability Journalism"
Is this your typical trolling pattern? Constantly changing the subject while flat out injecting as many lies as you can in the process in the hope of getting people to take your bait?Too bad you got outted, oy?
That whole article is talking about the "backlash" of Murkowski not getting votes, And you are comparing not getting votes as equal to DOXing, boycotts, harassing at restaurants and physical threats?
LeonDurham saysOK, read it.No you didn't
OK, read it.
Again, the President negotiates and THEN the Congress votes. Obama had a Dem Congress anyway in 2009-2010, but he wouldn't have needed one to start renegotiating So the "But Republican Congress" is doubly inapplicable.
Obama promised to renegotiate NAFTA. Promises Made, Promises Broken.Trade is one of my top 3 issues, I can never trust the Democrats again until I see America First trade deals being made and/or voted in by them.

The big banks already face tough regulation.
The Obama administration placed tough regulations on the banks after the government was forced to bail them out during the 2008 housing collapse. Are you saying Obama did nothing to control banks after bailing them out? If so, that would be sheer incompetence on the part of Obama, won't it?
Needs to ease some more. It's still suffocating housing.
You don't need to know every single law or regulation in detail.
and what I see is banks arenot lending for housing like they used to, or even close. There are hardly any portfolio loans available today that gave a range of options to potential borrowers for housing loans that were available 20 to 30 years ago. If more people are able to borrow for homes, more homes would be built, resulting in softer home prices.
Look Bob, I trust Trump to deal with the Islamic threat. I never trusted Obama to do the same. It's as simple as that.
If you mean Dodd-Frank, that was a Pastiche of Reform that simply sheltered Big Banks from competition by imposing immense regulatory compliance costs.
"Gaining seats" means nothing. The Dems can gain "1 seat" and you win $500, but the Dems would have no control over the House or the Senate.
Well, I'm glad those are the type of victories the Dems are getting excited for. It means that the perception of the blue wave has become the "blew wave". That makes me happy.
Yes, but the "blue wave" was supposed to be an over take of both houses.
The house is the actual real battle. But the funny thing is, it should not be a battle. Incumbents have only kept it 4 times in US History. But for some reason, it's gotten so close again.
November 5th: "NYT and 538 say the Dems have a 98% of winning the Senate"November 7th: "Uh, you're such an ignorant. The NYT/538 never said the Dems would win the Senate. Only a 98% chance. You don't understand math!"Maybe a repeat of 2016?
Maybe you should go get an NPR or CNN/NBC/WallStreet Journal poll to REALLY convince me.
Mighty strange that Saudi Arabia became bad since Trump became President, and we're taking Erdogan BS seriously. Even though this Journalist is to Osama Bin Laden what Ken Livingstone was to the IRA.
LeonDurham saysUh--wtf are you talking about? That example has no resemblance to anything 538 every said.Official NYT Prediction: "only 93%" chance to win two weeks before the election.
Uh--wtf are you talking about? That example has no resemblance to anything 538 every said.
Uh, Saudi Arabia embarked on a pretty aggressive reform plan starting a couple of years ago.
Now, you probably think Saudi Arabia should allow Burka-free living and legalize Gay Marriage all in one fell swoop tomorrow by 10AM, but you've never heard of reaction when you impose something people aren't ready for.
And nate silver himself. Go back and read. I even included a link.
When was the last time the US Media gave a shit about RIsen or anybody else Obama pursued with the Whistleblower Act?
Ok. According to historical trends, losing 30 seats in house and 4 seats in Senate is typical for 1st midterm election.
Yes, this does seem to be true.
