Roy Moore, delusional, out of touch, creepy, and with a deep seated belief his 2017 election run was fraudulent, has decided to run again.

He's Hillary and Stacey Abrams all rolled into one. Regardless, this dip**** has decided to run again. The entire state doesn't have a better option.

Well, I think we’ve pretty much decided that character doesn’t matter and it’s all about policy. Seems to me if he runs on a strong conservative platform he should be fine.

If you had a 16-year old daughter & a 32-year old man showed up to take her on a date, would you allow it?

He's potentially a pedophile. Multiple times. It's more than a character issue.
So groping dozens of women is fine...sleeping with porn stars and then paying them hush money is fine too? At least we have standards here.

Since you supported & voted for Hillary, then slut shaming rape victims is your standard

Difference between touching some woman on the head, and groping her ass or boobs.
So this time you’ll be supporting a segregationist. Interesting hypocrisy you continue to show this board

I’m not sure I agree with your assertion that Moore is “out of touch.” I’d say he’s very much in touch with what the good people of Alabama are looking for. He won a Republican primary once and I hope he does it again.

Good news for Roy is, If this Senate run doesn’t work out, there’s a job waiting for him as a guidance counselor at Mt. Vernon.

So the line of differentiation is which political party the abuser belongs to. Got it
Uh, no.

Let us know when someone has Biden on tape bragging about grabbing women by the pussy.

Pedo > boorish dickhead. In fact, pedo > abuse of power to bang an intern in the oval office.

Keep trying though.

Thank you for your continued hypocrisy, proving your support for racism & sexual harassment within your progressive party.

Trump changed the game. I have been told repeatedly on this site that although most people find him a reprehensible person, they will ignore his lack of character as long as he delivers solid policy. We have lost the right to hold character against anyone if we won’t do it to the President. I would never vote for Roy Moore, but I also won’t vote for Trump again.

Go Roy. Get that nomination. The people of AL already have a track record or voting down pedos. It’ll happen again in 2020.

Hopefully we can agree that both parties probably have their share of creeps. The Dems don't have a lot of ground to stand on in attacking Trump's sexual indiscretions as the party that still often reveres Bill and could only say "Uh, oops" when their double standards were shown.

But there's a rather large difference between being a creep and cheater and being a guy who went after under-aged girls. I don't like the former either, obviously, but I can understand the distinction. That's pretty common sense, and you really didn't have to bring Trump into this thread. Equating the two and then trying to imply that Trump-voters who don't like Moore are hypocrites is rather silly.

It seemed like Alabama itself agreed because a traditionally conservative state didn't elect him. Many Alabamans reportedly cheekily wrote in Nick Saban on the ballot.

I didn’t tie him, a conservative (@endoisewater) did. I just agreed.

There is a difference, you are correct, but where does the moral line lie? Where would you draw the line and refuse to back Trump, SCOTUS appointments or no? Is there one?

It's a good question. Seeing as how I didn't vote for Trump in 2016 but wrote in M. Bison, a Street Fighter character, obviously I wasn't comfortable voting for him. Was definitely not voting for Hillary.

Part of the calculus also involves the other side. The way the Dems have gone even further left, further left than I would even consider you, has made me think if I would vote for Trump the second time around, who hasn't been as bad a president as I initially thought he would be. Or maybe I'll write in Sagat.

I’m not remotely far left.

If Texas was up for grabs and knowing not voting for him could result in a Dem taking the state, would you still write in Sagat?

My concern isn't so much the state I'm in but rather if I feel like I can articulate a good defense of the vote. Even then, I could see how fellow conservatives voted for him, given the choice in front of them. The vast majority that I know didn't like Trump and backed someone else in the primary, but they were stuck with him as their nominee. Others I knew made fun of him the entire time up until Hillary made clear that she was in favor of late-term abortions. They gritted their teeth and voted for Trump as more of anti-Hillary vote. I can see it coming to that for me too.

We all have to make trade-offs when we vote (and if we don't think we do, then that's probably a problem because that means we're idolizing a candidate way too much). That goes for you too, unless you think Hillary was this squeaky clean politician. Do you have a line that you draw? It's not just a question for Trump-voters.

Not an easy question.

Up til now it really didn’t matter here because Texas has been such a one party state. One could boycott a candidate and have the personal satisfaction of not voting for a jackass or an idiot, yet comfortable knowing that it wouldn’t matter.

As Texas becomes more balanced all a sudden everyone’s vote becomes more important.

I can’t answer that. I wouldn’t vote for a Dem with Moore’s record. I voted for Bill and would again, but that is in the absence of actual evidence he had committed criminal acts against women.

If Trump were a Dem I might have to vote for him. Can’t honesrly say otherwise.
