  • Rubio: McCabe Should Have Been Allowed to Retire

    Seriously, who do you know that is truly livid about the fact Trump may or may not have had affairs 10 years ago??

    No one, but the media, and he rabid left, who are hypocrites on it anyway, after basically saying a President being serviced by an underling in the oval office while on the phone discussing whether or not troops should be sent into harms way with congressmen, was no big deal and something we should just move on from.

    Nobody cares.. Trump’s not going anywhere even if every allegation by the porn star turns out to be true.

    Like I said, Clinton lowered the bar so low, no one is going anywhere over a simple affair.

    Affairs don’t matter much in politics anymore period, other than in the bible belt...

    And barely even there, what is it TN where the married female mayor was boiking her head of security during working hours and has no plans of leaving?

    I think Trump is still waiting on that promised check from John, if he ran for president...

    Please, like an affair takes down a politician.

    The only reason PA-18 happened was because the politician in the affair was caught encouraging his mistress to have an abortion when she thought she was pregnant, the fact he had an affair barely registered.

    Thanks to Bubba, affairs barely register on the map.

    Yes it stinks for McCabe, but no one made him do the unethical and likely illegal things he did that lead to his firing.

    Don’t bet on it.

    The entire messaging of the PA-18 race from the R ecosphere was The D was a Pelosi lap dog... and guess how that ended????

    A race they should have easily won by 8 points they lost.

    You need to give voters something to vote FOR not simply something to vote against.. particularly in off year elections.

    I have no problem with a lawyer requiring the government to prove its case, regardless of the heinousness of the charges. If we don’t then all it takes is someone to level a heinous charge against anyone to get rid of them.

    That said, lawyers that know their clients are guilty of heinous crimes and lie andcheat to get them off or off light they should be disemboweled and fed their own intestines until they die

  • GOP Says Voting Machines 'Miscalibrated' in District Lamb Won, Saccone Votes Switched to Lamb

    HamiltonJay to servantoftheservant

    That’s exactly my point they NOTICED and no way you are getting 1000 fraudulent votes due to machines being miscalibrated.

    As to you other reasons, show me the evidence... This isn’t NYC, and this district doesn’t include the urban core of Pittsburgh...

    This election was lost by the GOP engaging in gross incompetence, not by fraud. This is a race that should have never been close. Conspiracy theories about election fraud costing it with no evidence is just that.

    IT was OBVIOUS this race was going to be far closer than it ever should be, and that D winning was a possibility to anyone watching.. because the messaging was absolutely all wrong for the district and the race.

    Trying to find a boogieman to blame is silly, the blame is squarely on the GOP ecosystem refusing to accept, understand or even acknowledge 2016. Pure and simple.

    R vote totals for the distrct were more than 50,000 below where they were in 2014, the last off year election for the district, and that was a year the R ran unopposed.... You had nearly 1/3 less R votes show up... you want to know why you lost? It wasn’t fraud.. it was that you didn’t get your side to show up.. period. You fed red meat to the rabid base and ignored everyone else, you delivered a message never addressed anyone else.

    Want to know why you lost, your messaging was terrible .. FCS, you had the R running around in the last 2 weeks of the election saying “I was Trump before Trump” You think that’s going to get those no traditional voters to show up????? You think a campaign that effectively was THE OTHER GUY IS EVIL, is going to do that???? Nope....

    This race was lost by messaging, not fraud. Clinging to this conspiracy theory with no evidence is nonsensical. YOu should be angry at the GOP ecosphere for refusing to understand the fundamental realities of what they needed to do in this race.

    50,000+ votes didn’t disappear do to fraud, they didn’t show up because you gave them no reason to.

    You believe so, you are welcome to come to PA 18, this fall and attempt to fraudulent get 1000 votes counted.

    This wasn’t lost by conspiracy theories it was lost by GOP ecosphere incompetence.

    Miscalibrated machines are not getting 1000 votes... As I stated before, you make the selection which is where the miscalibration would occur, then you go to a review screen and finally submit the vote. If you think 1000 votes like that happened an no one noticed it happening to them you are living in a dream world.

    This race was lost by incompetence and a GOP that refuses to accept what 2016 was all about. They were shown how to win, and ignored it all.

    Red Herring guys, this wasn’t lost by fraud, it was lost by incompetence.

    I live in this district, and a miscalibrated machine isn’t going to cost you major votes...

    Even IF You didn’t notice the checkbox was wrong... you still have to go through 2 more screens confirming your vote.

    You aren’t going to find 1000 votes that were due to this...

    You cast the vote, you reveiew the vote then you confirm the vote... If the cast screen screwed up, you see what it says on the next screen and still have to click again to cast it.. its beyond highly unlikely a machine or two doing this is going to result in many incorrect votes being cast.

    This is a non starter folks.

    Fraud didn’t lose this election, incompetence did. PERIOD.

    I live in this district, and I stated before the vote, that while R should still win, it would be far far closer than it ever should be and that Lamb winning wasn’t impossible, it was not beyond the pail that he could squeak by.

    This wasn’t because of fraud, this was because it was clearly obvious the R’s messaging in this race was horrible, and wrong.

    Fraud didn’t cost this race, incompetence throughout the GOP ecosphere did.

    HamiltonJay to Drew68

    This wasn’t lost due to the candidate... this was lost completely on messaging.... Even with a mediocre candidate this race should have never been closer than 8 points.

    The messaging was all wrong... never targeted anything but the red meat hard core R voter... You could have put the greatest candidate in the world up, and they would have not moved the needle much in this race.

    This race was lost by incorrect messaging and targeting.

    The GOP’s entire ecosystem does not get why Trump won, and refuses to follow his lead. PA-18 exposed the completely ineptitude throughout the entire GOP Ecosphere when it comes to targeting your message to your electorate.

  • Is the GOP Staring at Another 1930?

    HamiltonJay to Kaslin

    1930? No, but will they lose the house?

    If they think the messaging they used in PA-18 is what they will win on, they absolutely will lose the house.

    Senate will likely pick up a good number of seats.. but if the messaging in PA-18 is the plan for the fall, they will absolutely lose more than 23 seats and the house.

    Never said there was zero fraud, I said FRAUD didn’t cost this race... this race was lost by horrible and incorrect messaging and the fact the GOP ecosphere wants to pretend 2016 and Trump never happened.

    Fraud did’t cost this race, incompetent messaging did.

    This race should have never been close, and fraud isn’t the reason it was close.

    GOP Ran a terrible campaign from the top down, incorrect and wrong message, never gave anyone outside the hard core base a reason to care or show up... not once, even bothered to try to talk to them, let along motivate them

    See 56, I am tired of repeating myself to people who don’t want to listen to reality.

    The GOP blew this race, and it wasn’t the candidate. The Dems could have put up a child molester caught on tape and they would have still gotten the same vote totals. The D’s are motivated and angry and going to crawl over broken glass to vote.... This race NEVER offered any reason for anyone outside the hard right base to show up... the messaging was terrible, ineffective and wrongly targeted. PERIOD.

    It was GROSS INCOMPETENCE from the entire GOP ecosphere. You could have had the greatest candidate in the world on the GOP side and the race would not have shifted much because the messaging was all wrong and incorrectly targeted.

    PA-18 shows just how completely inept the GOP leadership is when it comes to understanding and messaging a campaign, at least in areas where they have to reach out beyond the hard core base.

    Trump flies in at the last minute and holds a rally, so what.. that doesn’t change the message of the race.

    Yes the GOP spent MILLIONS and they spent MILLIONS basically throwing out messaging that could have been for any generic R candidate for the last 15+ years... it was HORRIBLE AND INCORRECT MESSAGING from the entire GOP ecosphere!

    I live in this district, I watched this campaign first hand... The entire GOP message was WRONG, POOR and MISDIRECTED!

    What gave Trump the Rust Belt? Was it the same old R voters who always vote? Nope... It was he was able to get I’s and D’s to show up and vote for hime.. that is why he won the Rust Belt!

    He ran a campaign that gave those people a reason to vote for him, it addressed their concerns and said I HEAR YOU, AND I AM GOING TO BE THERE FOR YOU.

    This race, was nothing but RED MEAT, that’s it... LAMB IS A PELOSI D... LAMB IS EVIL, LAMB IS BAD... that was it.... I’m not talking about just the direct Saccone based ads either, I am talking the RNCC, and National PAC ads, they were NEVER anything but red meat for the base... And that was just flat out stupid.

    About the only ads that were half way decent, were actually from the Saccone campaign that were direct issue ads, one had a widow addressing the tax cuts... That was a good ad, the rest were never ever going to motivate anyone outside the hard right base to show up... and true to form, they didn’t.

    The messaging in this race was terrible, and wrong from day one. To give you an idea of just how bad the messaging of this race was, in the closing weeks of the race you had Saccone running around saying “I was Trump before Trump.” Jesus H Chrizt, you think the non traditional R voter, the I and D who came out for the MAGA agenda and voted R for the first or second time in their lives was going to be motivated to show up because of that???????? WTH?!?!?

    The message of this race should have ALWAYS been targeted to those voters, the I’s and D’s who came out and voted for Trump and MAGA... some red meat for the base is fine, but it can’t be the entire message... and that is all this races messaging was.... It never ever targeted those folks or even tried to!!!! It was an EPIC FAILURE OF INCOMPETENCE!

    The D base is energized and motivated, they are going to crawl over glass to vote... that’s not up for debate.... and if you aren’t going to give those people who voted for Trump/MAGA a reason they should care or show up they aren’t going to show up to vote.... And the entire GOP never once gave them one.

    You want the message that should have been given (at least up here in the rust belt) here it is.

    In 2016 YOU turned the world on its ear, you told the political establishment you had had enough of their selfish and short sighted actions.. you reminded them this is your country, not theirs. You voted to stop putting their desires first, and to put America’s first.

    The democrats didn’t hear you, they have vowed to stop the American First agenda you voted for at all cost. They have called your tax cuts crumbs, have spent the last year trying to undo your election, alleging foreign collusion and attacking your Agenda on every front

    My name is [xx] I a hear you, and I agree with you. I am running congress because I know America must come first, you the american people deserve nothing less. I will proudly stand for this and for you.
    I will proudly fight all those who believe otherwise.

    I hope I can count on your vote this fall. I am [xxx] and I whole heartily approve this message.

    You can word smith that message, but THAT, THAT’s the message needed, at least in the rust belt if you expect to not lose... Period.

    Sorry, but you could not be wrong... The messaging used in this race was absolutely incorrect, wrongly targeted and if it was the prototype of the message they plan for the fall, R’s will handily lose the house.

    This race should have never been closer than 8 points even with a mediocre candidate...

    The messaging from this race was the same as any generic R for the last 15 years, it never gave the non traditional R voter a reason to care or show up... never once addressed them, never once offered any motivation for anyone outside the very hard right to show up...

    It was red meat, and nothing more and if they plan on running that message in the fall, the GOP will lose the house... no doubt about it.
