Nate Silver nailed the 2008 and 2010 elections with his models. But if you feel better disregarding a source with a good track record because you don't like his leanings, far be it from me to ask you to live in a fact-based universe.

Coyote open the latest ACME Co. box.

So - pardon me for being skeptical.

And I'm looking forward to the book.
Actually, it reminds me of this guy

*Disclaimer: I didn't, and will not, vote for Obama

I think Rush has a poll that he is releasing today .. I'll come back later with the results.
Umm, not really the same thing there. Nate doesn't run polls, he provides analysis on polls and other data which he feeds into a model that churns out a prediction.

So, again I ask, what does Nate's political leanings have to do with the reliability of his work?

I read both The Daily Beast and Kudlow's opinion. I've already put a hold on the book at the library.
President Obama takes a back seat to George W. Bush wheni it comes to arrogance. President Obama's victory in the 2008 in a landslide. Bush earned barely half the votes in 2004 and yet acted like he had a mandate to do whatever he chose. That's my definition of arrogance.
The President states "If it works, we don't care whose idea it is" and Eric Cantor passes out a draft that contains only Repub proposals. The section on Biden and Cantor should be very interesting. Good to know that during meetings with Obama chewed nicorette and drank iced while Boehner smoked and OMG drank Merlot. I thought only liberals drank Merlot.

Quote from George W. Bush:
"I earned capital in the campaign, political capital, and now I intend to spend it. It is my style."

He spent all of the political capital and then spent everyone else's as well.

Heresay, but when a lot of people are making the same heresay claims, don't you think it ought to be looked into.
exactly which claims?

Quote:
I am not claiming i am telling you what my former neighbor claims.
but now the claims are contradicting themselves. first you claimed ( in another thread ) that your former neighbor said that he was told by obama that he was born in kenya. now you claim that your former neighbor said that he was told by obama that his father was an "african prince". since kenya has no monarchy it would seem unlikely for someone to advance both claims without getting called out on it.

Are you people for real?

What does working for the mouthpiece of the lefties and America's Pravda have to do with the Silver Tripe?

Honesty is not one of their salient points.

If I ain't looking over Silver's shoulder as he's 'tabulating' all the Liberal Polls .. I ain't believing .. even Your lying eyes!

I'm sorry, but using Liberal-logic, it's up to Barry to prove he's not.

Will this book finally reveal that super super secret, super special, for-Donald-Trump's-eyes-only information that Trump was supposedly going to reveal to us at the RNC? I'm dying to know what that was!!!!

#ell .. I and about 200 million others nailed those elections!

I didn't even have to dust off my crystal ball to do it!

Magic Negro 2008 was a no-brainer and 2010 only surprised you lefties!
