I'd vote Trump.  He has a better chance of being impeached quicker.

Yes I know Yankee. You've been predicting this all along. And who knows? You may look like a genius when it's all said and done.

Certainly very few of the pundits on TV have ever given Kasich much of a chance.

Just making sure.  My prediction was Kasich v. Not-Hillary.  I did call John a dark horse, but I think he's the best dark horse by far.

 

And the "pundits" problem right now is that they aren't really looking at the map at all.  They are all caught up in stuff that does matter, but doesn't matter in the end if the GOP doesn't pay attention to the map.  They need someone that can win Ohio.  They aren't talking about that enough.

Watch out for Kasich.

Very quietly he has moved into third place in New Hampshire. He has also risen up the polls to the point where he should- just barely- eke into the top 10 in time for the first debate.

Kasich is a serious candidate that the GOP "establishment" could get behind- yet the conservative base doesn't detest him the way they do Jeb Bush. I've thought all along that Scott Walker was the guy who could unite the party, but maybe Kasich could as well...

Plagiarism.  Just an FYI.

I'm not really big on conspiracy theories. FDR wanted to go to war with Germany, not Japan. He believed he could get Japan to back down. Also, while we broke Japanese diplomatic codes (through Magic) we didn't break their military codes. The Japanese diplomats didn't know about Pearl Harbor and neither did we.

Besides even if FDR had been forewarned and wanted the Japanese to attack, why then would he have allowed all the battleships to be destroyed in the harbor? That was a disaster for the U.S. And as several historians have noted, if the Japanese had bombed the fuel tanks as they easily could have, that could have ended the Pacific war with a Japanese victory then and there.

No I'm convinced this conspiracy stuff is garbage, much like the 9/11 Truthers.

Dan Akroyd knew.  And no one listened.
