Nate Silver is a leftist, but he has a track record to back up his model. In '08 he correctly predicted 49/50 states in the presidential election and correctly predicted all 35 senate races. He's no hack. [link=(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nate_Silver)]LINK[/link]

Okay well if we're playing this game then lets take a look at the top ten poorest states in the country. All are conservative states, including many southern states. All have huge unemployment rates, extremely high poverty rates, and a very low median income.

I'm a pretty liberal guy and I didn't find the comment offensive. But I do think that no matter where you stand on the political spectrum you can still get a good laugh out of these customer reviews for a binder on Amazon.

Factcheck.org is a non-partisan website that Republicans and Fox regularly cite whenever it rules in their favor. You can't conveniently cast it as irrelevant. Sorry that doesn't work.

Couple things...A map put out by The Tax Foundation shows that out of the most dependable states, 8 of the top 10 are Republican.

At least Obama took us from losing 800k jobs a month (when Bush left) to creating jobs every month. He has shown he can at least create jobs. Romney, to me, is a joke. Chris Christie would have my vote. As would Huntsman. But Romney is a man with zero convictions who has changed on every issue in th...

Mainstream democrats are very pro-capitalism. That is the far left wing of the party. Just how I don't think the average conservative thinks Obama is a Kenyan. We want to balance a budget just like you do, but we don't want to demonize teachers and firefighters while were at it.
Please tell me...

I don't live in Louisiana or the south. I don't think like the majority of the people on this board. I don't expect this to be anything close to a liberal board.

Republicans, if you want to know why you are losing, it's because of the extremism of the party.
