    MarkG: Hillary is done, she has been for months now.

    So the GOP bubble is saying that Hillary and Trump, both leading by wide margins, should pretty much be ignored at this point because they are both "done." Reality says something different, but the bubble wasn't invented for honesty's sake.

    Didn't we all predict a GOP win last year? Some of us were talking about things like higher GOP voter turnout, more Dem seats up for grab, stats from FiveThirtyEight. Others brushed all of that aside and said it was evidence of a GOP mandate to run the country despite having approval ratings that were a fraction of Obama's.

    But in the end, we all agreed on a GOP win.

    As for this issue.... The only way the GOP can win the White House is to come back more to the center. It's something made clear by the GOP after losing the last election. They have not done that and they don't have the base to win the presidency. That means their biggest hope is a Dem implosion or....wait for it.....a scandal. Could this be the answer to their prayers to baby Jesus? Probably not. And a Trump certainly isn't helping by being their leading candidate.

    But it's going to be a fun election season, that's for sure. We're going to see Hillary answering questions while the GOP is trying to shut down the government over abortion. Maybe some GOP moderate can step forward along with an exciting Democratic candidate and push all of the distractions aside.

    The changing classifications will help political bodies go after Clinton. They can say she had classified info on them and leave out the part where they were not classified at the time.

    The headline made me think something silly was going on, but it's a pretty compelling story to read about.

    SuperLib: Decline to do business with Russia, China, and parts of Europe? Not to mention other countries who would be so pissed off at the US they wouldn't go along with any plan?

    bass: Yeah, so what? It might be painful for a time being, but at least we wouldn't give in to principles and make a huge statement

    What the hell is wrong with you? Obviously you know we can't just cut off the U.S. economy from half of world trade. Look, some people sold you on some half-baked "plan" that you never thought to question. Now you're stuck alone on a message board trying to guess what the details of the "plan" are. And apparently there's a footnote that says the U.S. economy gets destroyed overnight, and it's all for a statement, but enough about that.

    Maybe you should stick to the cut and paste comments about Obama and liberals. You're well out of your depth on this one.

    decline to do business with ANY country that does give aid to the country.

    Decline to do business with Russia, China, and parts of Europe? Not to mention other countries who would be so pissed off at the US they wouldn't go along with any plan? The entire world economy would collapse overnight. Come back when you have a "plan" that doesn't include that buried in the footnotes.

    Talking about Iran getting nukes doesn't make your specific proposal any more or less credible. It's actually just sidestepping the credibility issue entirely. In previous posts you've admitted that we will lose Russia and China (at the very least) on the sanctions, yet you haven't explained how your policy of sanctions can still work given that fact. Are you able to address that issue specifically? I have no problem hearing a better plan but when your plan is challenged you start talking about how much you dislike liberals and the result is that you never address the flaws in your plan so naturally people will just table it and move on.

    LostInNagoya: Oh, Samsung counts every Galaxy shipped from its factories as "sold", inflating its selling numbers. Even if the device is kept in storage for months, or returned to Samsung.

    That's how every manufacturer counts sales. They have no way of knowing how many hit the streets unless every retailer in the world reports their sales back to Samsung, which they would never do. So all a manufacturer can do is report how many it is selling to retailers.

    The GOP don't have a workable alternative, just some pipe dream where everyone in the world does what we want when we want it, which means their plan can be anything and it always works and we don't need allies. Then if you question their plan you're any idiot because how could you be against always getting what you want? Sheesh!

    It's kind of like that game you'd play as a kid where you grab your friends hand and start hitting him with it while saying, "stop hitting yourself." Except when I let go of bass' hand he just keeps hitting himself in the face. Then he tells me "nice try."

    Too many Republicans get elected by promising that they will refuse to work with Obama. Then they say they won't compromise and they blame Obama for the gridlock. A vast majority of voters blame the GOP for the gridlock (part of their record low approval ratings), but they keep doing it anyway.

    They have no leaders and they cannot even hold votes on solutions.

    Wolfpack: Because stabbing someone in the back always brings people together.

    Walking away from the deal would stab Europe, China, and Russia in the back at this point, no? And isn't that the grand GOP plan....stab them in the back then renegotiate a completely different deal that they don't want that includes sanctions that they must sign off on to make the deal work?

    I can understand that a GOP handler in the bubble can get away with saying that to you, but don't think you can exit the bubble and talk to us like that.

    As the conservative base shrinks, the GOP tells themselves that their mandate is real and growing stronger.

    Blame the match? I blame the people putting a torch to the house. Hackers are hackers, and it's just a matter of time until a list you are on is published.

    MarkG: We may be outnumbered on this news forum but not in the nation!

    Of course you are outnumbered, and your base is shrinking. Do they not report this stuff in the places you go for news? The Congressional GOP's ratings are at historic lows. The odds are that you will lose yet another popular vote unless something changes quickly. Your party is doing the exact opposite of what your party said it needed to do when it lost the last election.

    Your party is out of step with America on just about every single social issue. The younger generation skews blue on these issues, even for independents. This is of course in places where the GOP hasn't successfully ended pre-registration for teenagers, which of course has nothing to do with my previous sentence. Minorities are a larger chunk of the population and again you are at historic lows. You've also managed to reignite the negative view that women have of the GOP. Congrats on that.

    Your hero, Reagan, wouldn't even last a second in the Republican world these days. Instead you have Donald Trump dominating and regardless of what you say, it just looks bad. It reinforces the image of your most negative qualities.

    You have no mandate, no candidate, and no legislation to vote on. And you somehow keep making things worse. Please, please don't change.

    So in the bubble Republicans are saying that Hillary is dead and buried? Yet another reason for the GOP not to change. I support that.
