Discussion in 'Time Travel Claims' started by Lyndzee_Grummond, Sep 11, 2008.
Thanks for clearing that up.
I doubt it. She is still trying to get her money back from the last time.
then again...we change our minds all the time...she recently accepted failure...i dont see why she wouldnt want to come back. I am not saying this because I support Lynd, btw where the heck is she? I am just saying it because it is a human posibility...
You know I heard the court case sueing Obama for proof of US citizenship had not died today. Probably just rumors though. Meh... Ever since McCain Choose Palin I have been putting all my money on them...
Actully ever since Obama Chose Biden I have been betting against THAT team because I do not know of any two senator ticket that has ever won in the last 100 years..
Maybe a time traveler could weigh in their opinion about it...
In general it's always been the view of the parties that Sentaors don't make good Presidential candidates. In the current situation we have three Senators running and a fourth (Hillary) who was eliminated.
The Senate is the ultimate slow motion debating society. Senators rarely have to make quick decisions. Governors and mayors, on the other hand, have always been top candidates because they have to make "presidential" decisions on a daily basis. They have to react to instant situations, have no huge body of like members, and live (or die) on the basis of those decisions.
This is really not a good field of candidates to choose from. Sarah and Rudy are the only executive branch candidates to enter the fray this go-round.
John F. Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson won the 1960 Presidential election and both served as President.
Both were U.S. Senators at the time of the 1960 election.
And in 1964, Johnson and Hubert Humphrey, a Senator, were elected.
Maybe there are others?
But old time travelers do die. "Time traveling" doesn't extend your actual life at all.
There have been 15 Presidents who were Senators. But they are all really bunched up. Eight before 1846 and four in the last half of the 20th Century: Truman, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon. The one thing they all had in common was they were military veterans during WWI (Truman) or WWII, and with the exception of Harry Truman (Army officer), all were U.S. Navy officers. And, of course, Truman and Johnson only became President because the sitting President died.
And that might be why 2 senator tickets do not win often.... It might have something to do with presidential superstitions. I mean as it was pointed out to me both Johnson and Truman were two Senator presidential tickets.... and both teams had a president die.
Still If I can't rely on political history to base my chooses on something then I shall rely on my irrational belief in Titor because of that whole male female president thing... after all McCain did pick Palin and they do have the incumbent powerbase. .... Even if it is a democratic congress McCain has still been there going on 30 years. It doesn't get anymore good Ole' boy then that.
Yeah we saw how that whole JFK thing turned out. No other president has went through Dallas in a motorcade.
Good observation. I just like the saying thats all.
Our differences of opinion re. Titor aside, I have to agree with you, in general, on the on the two Senator ticket issue. I believe that the electorate doesn't view the situation superstitiously though. I believe that they see it as a situation of one (or two) legislative debaters who haven't had to face the instant realities of the world.
In some cases that might be an unfortunate opinion because there are Senators who have the executive experience at some point in their lives to the extent that they are fully qualified for the Presidency. But I don't discount their general view of the thing. The Senate is a wonderful body that has survived for over two thousand years. But it moves slowly. I have no problem with that in the realm that they cover. But mayors, governors and presidents have to not only move quickly, they have to take full credit for their failures as well as their victories. We, as citizens, have to put it into the proper context when we judge the outcomes. Presidents put real peoples' lives in danger. On a much smaller scale I've had to make those decisions. It's great when it comes out right but it's horrible when not everyone comes home...even when the outcome is a victory and even when you know in your heart that you made the right decision. And the Senate, thereafter, spends weeks or months debating the situation with no personal responsibility (even though they may have complied with the "Advice & Consent" clause to authorize the action) for the outcome. It's very lonely at the top.
I feel the same way, Darby. And with ALL our differences aside, Titorite, your statements about Senators as Presidents is demonstrative of your knowledge of history. Here is a quote that I think also speaks well to this issue:
<font color="red"> "In a time when experience or lack thereof, seems to be at the forefront of the Presidential election, it is ironic that a governor is being attacked as having little to no experience. For anyone who understands how the US Constitution works, it is obvious that a U.S. Governor has more responsibilities than a U.S. Senator, yet so many seem to have no scope of the responsibilities of each role. In fact, a governor has an immense amount of constant responsibility and no recesses, as opposed to a senator, who is not required to vote, has many recesses, and is rarely, if ever, solely responsible for a piece of legislation.." [/COLOR]
soooo where are you??
I think Lyndzee is waiting until next presidential elections take place. My guess is that she will come back to the forum next October 5, of course only if McCain wins the election like she said, otherwise I think we will never see Lyndzee again.
As you can see from the Annnnnn-ticipation in the posts following his/her retreat, no one appears to really care if s/he appears again or not. Though s/he posted somewhat prolifically, Lyndzee lasted about the average time for an OWETO - three weeks.
oh lindzee where are thou?,do we care?,well i guess no,you have been proven to be as fake as hell and Obama will win that is my prediction,hehehehe,of course anyone can say that being around 10 points ahead of Mcain,oh Gosh Time travelers fakers are so easy to get this days!!!!
I know Right where Lyn is and what she/he is doing.
Reading these posts and thinking we all act like 5 year olds.
(No, I will NEVER EVER let it go) /ttiforum/images/graemlins/yum.gif
I am inclined to agree with you about an Obama win but Mcain and Palin still have a lot of pull so we will see. On the Time Traveler fakers they are a dime a dozen around here. But, if there were no fakers then there would be no one to try to prove them wrong then we all would just go home unless we want to discuss something else besides time travel. The fakers are doing their jobs keeping everyone on their toes. The time travel institute is suppose to be a fictional forum where people come and have fun for their own reasons. If the day ever comes around here that someone can actually prove time travel then of course it is still all good.
Well said /ttiforum/images/graemlins/smile.gif
