Hey Ad
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Hey there, slm! How’s everything this fine Friday?
AdLib 7 days ago
Excellent and you?
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Pretty good, had a little database issue on the site but all is well now.
AdLib 7 days ago
Still Feelin the Bern, glad C-Span stepped up and remembered what they were started for…
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Did you see Trump’s speech tonight? His schtick is already getting old.
AdLib 7 days ago
I saw. No comment.
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Nah, I listened to the callers for Bernie. I’ll watch it tomorrow. See if I can stomach it for more than 5 minutes.
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Bernie’s looking better and better as Hillary is looking more and more weighed down by the email server issue.
AdLib 7 days ago
I haven’t been following that either. First they changed the law AFTER she was no longer SoS. Second there are Secret Service everywhere they go. I don’t think much of their life is really hidden.
sillylittleme

7 days ago
And you know I’m no Hill fan. Fair is fair.
sillylittleme

7 days ago
And now that Bernie’s ahead of Hillary in NH, he is more legit in the eyes of the media and should get more coverage. I’m really anxious for the Dem debates…which Hillary arranged to be minimized and delayed. Still, the first one in October should be very interesting!
AdLib 7 days ago
Yes but the reality is that her character is taking a big hit, she’s still ahead of Bernie nationally by a big margin but there is not a lot of enthusiasm for her.
AdLib 7 days ago
Ya there’s a petition out to get Jon Stewart to moderate an independent debate while still inviting all the D candidates
sillylittleme

7 days ago
That’s a fun idea but Stewart would never do that, he’s on a long hiatus from work.
AdLib 7 days ago
Good evening, Ad, SLM, and PPO.
glenn

7 days ago
Ad – I wonder how true that is. we have a glut of millenials and I think they are being underestimated
sillylittleme

7 days ago
It sure would be fun though for Stewart if he could go head to head with Trump!
AdLib 7 days ago
Hi, folks
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Hey Glenn Hey Pink
sillylittleme

7 days ago
SLM!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Hey glenn!
AdLib 7 days ago
Hey Harleigh Hey Funk and now to fill a bowl
sillylittleme

7 days ago
What’s up PPO?
AdLib 7 days ago
Howdy everyone!
funksands

7 days ago
Hey gang!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Da funk!
glenn

7 days ago
Hey did you guys all carpool? Hi Harleigh and Killgore!
AdLib 7 days ago
TRUMP 2016!
funksands

7 days ago
Hey KT
glenn

7 days ago
Hey Funk!
AdLib 7 days ago
Hey KT
sillylittleme

7 days ago
My rump 2016
sillylittleme

7 days ago
No T-R-U-M-P
funksands

7 days ago
Not much, Ad. Usual Aussie crap here, which can now be seen in all its venal glory on HuffPo.au, which the berks automatically send me to, but I dont Wanna!
pinkpantheroz

DUGGAR – FOGEL 2016 Showing True Repubelieklan VALUES for Jebus!
Harleigh

7 days ago
Harleigh, you are on to something
funksands

7 days ago
My Trump card shows the Ks and a white sheet!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
It was so funny to see how crassly Trump pandered to the southern crowd tonight! Sorry but Trump supporters sure seem pretty darn dumb.
AdLib 7 days ago
I’ve said this before; but I just cannot imagine why anyone would want the President of the United States of America to be a crass, boorish, buffoon like trump! WTF is his appeal?
glenn

7 days ago
Harleigh you always have the right pairings
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Ad: Sweaters! Solar Panels! Haw!
funksands

7 days ago
I borrowed my wife’s broom to get here tonite actually!
Harleigh

7 days ago
She’s gonna be pissed Harleigh!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Harleigh–why did you borrow your wife’s? Don’t you have one of your own?
glenn

7 days ago
slm – You could be right but I’ve seen polls that show a big percentage of Dems don’t even know who Bernie is. As crazy as that sounds, after the Dem debates, that will change.
AdLib 7 days ago
slm I hope the Palin-Bachmann folks are not upset that I bolted.
Harleigh

7 days ago
It’s still very early in the race. That’s present day America. Our campaigns start way too soon.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Really Ad? There are dems who don’t know who Bernie is? I guess not everyone is following the race this early.
glenn

7 days ago
Ad – I think Bernie supporters are too busy forming a grassroots campaign to worry about the polls. Thinking outside the box is how we get our democracy back.
sillylittleme

7 days ago
PPO – You’ll never get that smell out of your country now that HP is there, believe me, Americans know all about that.
AdLib 7 days ago
KT, no doubt. I’m having a really hard time working up any energy over the Presidential election right now
funksands

7 days ago
I would be an interesting wrinkle if Uncle Joe got in though.
funksands

7 days ago
Harleigh – yes but they can be your fallback
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Ad, and I thought I’d trod on something! EEuuwwww!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
my broom is in the shop for fresh straw.
Harleigh

7 days ago
Harleigh – Now that’s the future of the GOP!
AdLib 7 days ago
Me too funk. A whole lot can happen between now and November 2016.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
brb
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Harleigh–okay, got to keep it in good repair! LOL
glenn

7 days ago
I will say, it’s a bit of fun to ridicule the 17 dwarfs (kudos to Ad).
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
glenn – Nope, only the more politically minded are truly following things now, hence the phony popularity of Trump. Hey, if Deez Nuts can get 9% in NC, it only proves poll numbers mean nothing right now.
AdLib 7 days ago
KT, so many GOP candidates are being forced to spend their time and money so early in the process, they’re in danger of having to bow out months before they were prepared to even seriously campaign
funksands

7 days ago
Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of assholes
funksands

7 days ago
true dat funk
Harleigh

7 days ago
To be fair, Deez does have a pretty comprehensive Syria strategy
funksands

7 days ago
yeah, Rand Paul can’t even pay his campaig staffers now.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT–can’t rand borrow from daddy?
glenn

7 days ago
I Think Deez Nuts is code for the GOP candidates.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
The billionaires haven’t even weighed in with their serious money yet. Smart
funksands

7 days ago
slm – Yep, then they’re being very smart. Though the polls are looking better and better for Bernie, they really don’t mean much now. All this hype about Trump…six months from now he’ll be wishing for polls like these.
AdLib 7 days ago
Yeah, I think that’s what’s he is trying to do.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Cull the herd for free? Okay!
funksands

7 days ago
Funk – Same here, I’d really like Biden to jump in. I’d support both him and Bernie.
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad – and crowds!!
sillylittleme

7 days ago
I like Joe, but I don’t think he can win. Hell, he might not even want the job.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Funk – agree on everything you just said upthread
sillylittleme

7 days ago
KT, I don’t think he does. I don’t consider him a strong candidate either. There’s a reason he’s flailed in 3 prior campaigns for President. Good man, not a great candidate. I think he’d make a solid President though.
funksands

7 days ago
KT – I worry about his hoof in mouth problem
sillylittleme

7 days ago
KT – I think Biden would make mincemeat of Trump, Bush or any other Repub. He has the kind of authenticity voters want this time around and classic Progressive stands…and he’s got a good right hook if he needs it.
AdLib 7 days ago
Is Bernie the only one talking about the evil of for-profit prisons and mandatory minimum sentencing?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
I don’t think Trump intimidates Hillary or Bernie.
funksands

7 days ago
KT, O’Malley and Hillary have all come out with positions on this.
funksands

7 days ago
KT-wasn’t that one of the things (for profit prisons) that Hillary discussed with the BLM group?
glenn

7 days ago
no doubt Ad, but he’s also pretty prone to gaffes.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
slm – Running against a Trump or Bush, Biden would look like the perfect speaker.
AdLib 7 days ago
Funk – they fall short
sillylittleme

7 days ago
KT – Bush and Trump deliver far more gaffes, almost daily.
AdLib 7 days ago
She briefly mentioned “mass incarderations,” but she didn’t go into any detail or policy proposals. Like I said, it’s verye early still in the campaign.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Glenn – they asked her if she felt the policies her husband signed into law warranted an apology to the AA community
sillylittleme

7 days ago
The good news is the debates force everyone to start to solidify their policy stances.
funksands

7 days ago
Ad–except in the case of bush and trump, their supporters see their gaffes as positive, not gaffes.
glenn

7 days ago
Ad, that’s expected from those clowns.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
I do like O’Malley too, to my surprise. He’s gained a bit of fire in the belly and after the first debate, I think he may gain interest too.
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad – yes but its like yawning, he could end up matching them gaffe for gaffe
sillylittleme

7 days ago
That said, Hillary does reportedly have some private prison lobbyists working informally as bundlers for her campaign
funksands

7 days ago
Bush has already delivered enough gaffes to be blown up in a GE. And Trump…he’s alienated the Latino and women’s vote, no way he could win against any Dem.
AdLib 7 days ago
Really though, I don’t think gaffes are all that damaging. It’s policy proposals, or the lack there-of that really counts.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Ad, I agree. I’ve liked his policy positions from the start, but I was worried about his viability as a candidate.
funksands

7 days ago
Funk – I think one is the campaign manager for Hill
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Is there any Repub running that folks here think could beat any Dem running (or possibly running like Biden)?
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad – maybe he’s a cushion
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Glenn – that’s because their thinking is twisted from years of conditioning
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Ad: No. I think if Kasich was running 8 years ago he’d be formidable. But no.
funksands

7 days ago
Personally, I don’t see a single Repub who could win the Repub nom and be favored to win over any Dem.
AdLib 7 days ago
Among the perpetually numb, undecides, Bernie being a socialist may be a big problem for him, only because the illinformed don’t know what democratic socialism really is.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Don’t rule out K-Sick, Ad.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
I’m very surprised how strongly Rubio is polling in individual state polls against both GOP and Dem candidates. He’s a puffy lightweight, but we might have to keep an eye on him.
funksands

7 days ago
Funk – Agreed, the only Repub even close to being competitive in a GE might have been Kasich but he has so much baggage as Bush’s economic guy and many missteps in OH and on policy issues.
AdLib 7 days ago
KT – that’s why his supporters are tasked with informing all they know.
sillylittleme

7 days ago
KT–K-Sick is attacking teachers, so he’s probably going to gain a lot from that. After all, next to immigrants, teachers are the gop’s favorite whipping “boys”.
glenn

7 days ago
i sure don’t see any national repube having been pushed off the cliff on the right.
Harleigh

7 days ago
K-Sick doesn’t play the religious fanatic hand like the rest, but is very subtle about it. Thus separating himself from the rest of the loonies. He is still a wolf in sheep’s clothing, though. K-Sick hates unions.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT – Possible, no doubt if Bernie is the nom, the Repubs will hammer on his being a socialist but I’d propose that any electorate that would elect a black man with the middle name of Hussein to the presidency won’t be terrified by labels.
AdLib 7 days ago
Funk – I’m not certain that normalized relations with Cuba would get him much more than the old landowner class that has mostly died off.
sillylittleme

7 days ago
I’m not so sure Ad.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Glenn – that sentiment is changing
sillylittleme

7 days ago
SLM–which sentiment? Bashing teachers?
glenn

7 days ago
Ad – he is being touted as an Eisenhower Republican by many seniors. Interview on C-Span after his speech tonight
sillylittleme

7 days ago
k-Sick doesn’t reall bash teacher, per say, but teachers’ unions. He’s very anti-union. Even police and firefighter’s unions.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
SLM–who is the next Ike? K-Sick?
glenn

7 days ago
Funk – Rubio is indeed a very shallow candidate but so are the rest. Fiorina only moved up in the polls for calling Hillary a liar in her debate. Repubs reward petty nastiness. Rubio does his nasty thing but in a GE, any candidate who opposes Dreamers and wants women to be forced to die in childbirth ain’t gonna win.
AdLib 7 days ago
Glenn – yes. there are a lot of people concerned that the children’s needs aren’t being tended to. you know family values and stuff
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Does Fiorina have that crazy Michelle Bachman look, or is just me?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Glenn – No Bernie. Sorry I got high.
sillylittleme

7 days ago
slm – Trump is being called an Eisenhower Repub? Poor Eisenhower, he must be getting dizzy spinning in his grave so fast.
AdLib 7 days ago
i’m having a tough time getting too excited about an election 15 months away. rest assured the repukes will be yelling BENGHAZI/EMAIL!! lol
Harleigh

7 days ago
KT – her plastic surgery has her face so tight, they musta had the same doc
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Trump and Ike? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT – It’s the face lift/Botox combo that made Bachmann and Fiorina look like zombies.
AdLib 7 days ago
I’m with you, Harleigh. I can’t get into it in such depth right now, way too soon
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Trump would have built a big wall around Germany! Wait a minute, Didn’t Stalin have that same idea?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Ad – no Bernie, you made a comment about him and I responded. Ok let’s talk Trump. He is an art school project.
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Palin, Bachmann, Jenner. Interchangeable faces.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
KT–All repubes are anti-union. Guess I’m sensitive to teacher issues; but K-sick saying that he’d ban teachers’ “lounges” just sticks in my craw. They used to be called teachers’ “lounges” until teachers finally started calling them “work rooms” because that’s what they actually are. A place to eat your lunch–if you don’t have lunch duty–while running copies, grading papers, researching lesson plans, gathering mateials, etc.
glenn

7 days ago
Those crazy eyes!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
i’m enjoying the gaffes and bullshit though! lol
Harleigh

7 days ago
We should all be very grateful that Trump is dominating the Repub race now and pummeling Bush, who may end up the eventual nominee. Bush showing such weakness and stooping to the “anchor babY’ crap, just tears down his image.
AdLib 7 days ago
Sorry about that. Lot of distractions.
funksands

7 days ago
KT –
AdLib 7 days ago
Bernie Hussein Debs Sanders
funksands

7 days ago
And ain’t it fun seeing the idiot pundits be proven dead wrong weak after weak after pronouncing Trump dead after every gaffe of his?
AdLib 7 days ago
funk, My Name is Eugene!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
No, because it just makes them cover him more
funksands

7 days ago
week after week that is!
AdLib 7 days ago
KT, I’ve always liked that name
funksands

7 days ago
Isn’t Trump technically a reverse anchor baby? Wasn’t he born in the Bahamas?
sillylittleme

7 days ago
KT–and didn’t the russians actually build one between east and west Berlin?
glenn

7 days ago
Isn’t Jeb an anchor husband?
funksands

7 days ago
Funk – I thought Bernie’s middle name was Marx!
AdLib 7 days ago
Funk – Jeb is an anchor brother.
AdLib 7 days ago
That’s W
funksands

7 days ago
Ad – no that would be Trotsky
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Yes they did glenn!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
slm – Thanks for the correction!
AdLib 7 days ago
Jeb just doesn’t seem to have his heart into being a candidate. He’s clearly not enjoying himself.
funksands

7 days ago
KT–and that worked out “well” didn’t it? The wall, I mean. LOL!
glenn

7 days ago
If Hillary isn’t careful, Bernie may Trotsky into the nomination.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
I think if more people had listened to Trotsky, we may not have had WWII.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Doesn’t Jeb! look more like Jeb… now? Doesn’t he look awful as a candidate?
AdLib 7 days ago
Oh yeah, glenn. For the Soviets.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Ad–I think Jeb! looks really “smart” now, don’t you?
glenn

7 days ago
Pink – lol
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Funk – No one “enjoys” Jeb. That’s why he had to put an exclamation point after his name so at least something would look excited.
AdLib 7 days ago
KT – duh!!!!
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Maybe Yeb could try some “smart glasses,” like Perry did.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Glenn – its his glasses
sillylittleme

7 days ago
I do enjoy hearing Drumph mercilessly tease Jeb:-( for being such a low-energy downer. LOL
funksands

7 days ago
Damn KT
sillylittleme

7 days ago
There was more fun with everyone shouting out Norm! in Cheers than today saying Jeb!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
jebby was a shit gubernator. rubitard record will can his lame ass.
Harleigh

7 days ago
Funk – downers, hmmm, mybe you’re on to something
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Great minds slm!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
glenn – How did you like when all the establishment pundits were claiming that Trump’s popularity would be good for Bush because it would make him look like the adult in the room? He looks more like the pouting, short bus riding child in the room.
AdLib 7 days ago
Got a question for trump regarding immigrants that I’d like to see a reporter ask him. I’d like a reporter to ask him, “What policies/procedures does your company have in place to ensure you’re not hiring undocumented immigrants? To ensure that your jobs go to American citizens and not undocumented immigrants?”
glenn

7 days ago
who needs glasses? He’s got beautiful eyes!
funksands

7 days ago
funksands

7 days ago
Harleigh – sorry you have had to live through such crap
sillylittleme

7 days ago
I like to call Bush, Yeb! That’ll grab the hispanic vote! Vote For Yeb!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Great one funk!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Funk-ewww
glenn

7 days ago
Funk!!!!!!!!
sillylittleme

7 days ago
KT, LOL! Maybe Hhheb?
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Nice one PPO! Heb Bush!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Vote for Juan
sillylittleme

7 days ago
My name Yeb Hemenez!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
SLM–vote for Colomba’s husband!
glenn

7 days ago
I really don’t see how anybody with a drop of minority blood, a vagina and or a brain could possibly vote for any of these repub assholes. seriously.
Harleigh

7 days ago
I still think people may get confused when they see john bush on the ticket…
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Glenn – Ole
sillylittleme

7 days ago
glenn – Allow me to answer your question channeling Trump: “Look, we’ve got to stop these illegal immigrants from sneaking across the border or into my construction sites! The Mexicans love me, that’s why they want to work for me, that’s why I know I’ll win the Mexican vote. WHich will make deporting them with their families after I’m elected a kind of a drag but they have to go.”
AdLib 7 days ago
Harleigh, yes you can.
funksands

7 days ago
Harleigh, they are all subservient to their hubbies, like the bybul tells them so!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Ad–LOL! good answer!
glenn

7 days ago
Funk – I don’t know if I’ll be able to sleep tonight after looking at that Perry/Bachmann morph!
AdLib 7 days ago
Harleigh – and the ones that love them… and that leaves the Rs with very few truly insane people who think another 4 years is the right move
sillylittleme

7 days ago
We have a guy on the Mariners named Jesus Sucre
funksands

7 days ago
That was pretty damn scary!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
That’s an awesome name for a candidate: Sweet Jesus
funksands

7 days ago
Funk – Sweet!
AdLib 7 days ago
GLORY! lol
Harleigh

7 days ago
Has anyone ever seen them in the same room….oh yeah I guess we have
funksands

7 days ago
Funk–just out of curiosity, how do the announcers pronounce his first name? In the Hispanic pronounciation? Or the American one?
glenn

7 days ago
funk, we only think we have. CGI, you know?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Glenn: Hey-Suess
funksands

7 days ago
Well, at least Jeb is officially using George W. as his campaign and foreign affairs adviser. What could go wrong?
AdLib 7 days ago
KT you are right! We’ve been so blind!
funksands

7 days ago
That’s a good one funk. Green eggs and lots of ham.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Okay, your best guess, which Repub will win the nomination?
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad, no clue. Romney?
funksands

7 days ago
Funk–glad to hear they have it right!
glenn

7 days ago
Ad – Cheney got that heart for a reason…
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Has Cruz been cleared to ru as a citizen yet?
Harleigh

7 days ago
I seriously have no clue. The Trump Event Horizon is distorting all of my data
funksands

7 days ago
BTW, with Fiorina bumped up a little…poor Chris Christie is pushed off of the debate stage (with a loud BOOM!).
AdLib 7 days ago
I think K-Sick has the best chance. It won’t be Bush or Trump. Even the Goppers don’t really take Trump seriously!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Evening all – which GOP candidate has pissed you off the most this week? I think it’s a crap shoot myself.
choicelady

7 days ago
KT, the base is no mood for Kasich.
funksands

7 days ago
another question, who would the GOP nominee pick as Veep?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
CL–how are you? Can’t decide. I think they’re all equal pissers!
glenn

7 days ago
AdLib – that’s a fat joke against Christie who has actually lost a lot of weight.
choicelady

7 days ago
Not yet funk.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Ad – it couldn’t take the weight anyhow
sillylittleme

7 days ago
glenn – that’d be MY choice: all of them!
choicelady

7 days ago
Probably Walker every week, Choice. He’s such a smarmy, stupid ass-wipe its hard not to be.
funksands

7 days ago
KT–if the nominee is trump, then for sure palin. She just adores trump and wants to have a six pack with him.
glenn

7 days ago
Hey Choice
sillylittleme

7 days ago
kasick only successes were because Obama saved our domestic auto industry.
Harleigh

7 days ago
funk – Walker looks as if he needs to barf in most photos.
choicelady

7 days ago
KT – Kasich doesn’t have a good chance in the GOP primary, if he could win that he might be their best hope in a GE but he’s too establishment and comparably moderate to win over the Tea Partiers, Kasich could never win in the primary.
AdLib 7 days ago
Remember folks, the GOP doesn’t really want a smart pres. Too hard to manipulate.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
glenn – Palin wants Trump because he’ll buy her lots of bling!
choicelady

7 days ago
Hi CL!
AdLib 7 days ago
Hi AdLib – how are yoy??
choicelady

7 days ago
Uh -you.
choicelady

7 days ago
Palin destroys our language 1 sentence at a time!
Harleigh

7 days ago
K-Sick isn’t really all that moderate. He’s just playing the pre-nom game right now. Don’t let him fool you.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
CL–walker IS what barf looks like in most pictures! Smarmy, little smart ass! Do you know why donkeys don’t go to college?
glenn

7 days ago
CL – No matter how much weight Christie loses, he will always be a big fat jerk.
AdLib 7 days ago
glenn -no. Why don’t donkeys go to college?
choicelady

7 days ago
Hey CL!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Doing okay, CL. How are you and hubby?
AdLib 7 days ago
CL–because nobody likes a smart ass!
glenn

7 days ago
AdLib – that, unfortunately for chris, is accurate.
choicelady

7 days ago
glenn – LOL!!
choicelady

7 days ago
Nobody would pick Palin as their running mate. She’s political poison.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Glenn – Too funny!!!
sillylittleme

7 days ago
KT – you know that. We know that. The GOP doesn’t ever think that far.
choicelady

7 days ago
Hi SLM – how are you?
choicelady

7 days ago
KT – You’re right, that’s why I said comparably moderate. Compared to Cruz, Trump, Huckabee, etc., Kasich looks moderate. But he’s not.
AdLib 7 days ago
Harleigh – make that one word salad at a time
sillylittleme

7 days ago
Great Choice and you?
sillylittleme

7 days ago
hi cl! lol. had my back to the door. sorry
Harleigh

7 days ago
Whom are you referring to CL? This thread is moving too fast to catch everything.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
AdLib – Kasich was Catholic but converted to some Dominionist sect, so yeah – he’s one of the bad guys not a mod.
choicelady

7 days ago
Hi Harleigh – not a problem. Always good to see you.
choicelady

7 days ago
BRB
glenn

7 days ago
KT – even I don’t know whom I meant!
choicelady

7 days ago
Looks can fool ya. I think that’s what K-Sick is counting on.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Trump had less people at his rally tonight than Bernie’s top rally. Sorry Trump, guess money can’t buy everything! And he had Lynard Skynard playing afterward so not sure all were there to see him anyway.
AdLib 7 days ago
Kasich is barely beating Trump in Ohio polling.
funksands

7 days ago
It’s early funk, keep that in mind.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Who thinks Trump will sustain during the next year plus?
choicelady

7 days ago
Sarah speaks into a Mr. Microphone thru a Salad Shooter, that’s why she never makes any sense! LOL
Harleigh

CL, not me!
pinkpantheroz

Murph – Hillary is the same person she was in 2008 and before that. She and Bill need to control everything they can, from emails to the truth and now that most Americans are familiar with that, they look untrustworthy. She has been terrible in her interviews and statements about the email server and the snide crack she made after being asked if she wiped the server, “With what, a cloth?” just made her look dishonest. She is not a great candidate, she could be beaten, she may be. And whoever wins the Dem nom will become President whether it is or isn’t her.

SLM…..I admire Bernie but I also know his record of very little accomplishment in the House and Senate.

slm – True but as I’ve mentioned, the most important thing for me is that there will likely be SCOTUS vacancies and we need a Dem President and Senate to change the majority there. That alone would be enough of an accomplishment for Hillary or whichever Dem becomes President.

Ad…with that in mind…I am rooting for Joe Biden now……

Murph – I like Biden a lot and hope he gets in. That said, Bernie’s accomplishments in the House and Senate are no doubt tied to his very liberal beliefs, one wouldn’t expect most of the policies he’s fought for to get passed so that’s not surprising. And is anyone asking what Trump’s political accomplishments have been?

Ad…all true about Bernie….but without a record I cannot say that I have any sense of the man’s ability to forge coalitions or even create concensus in legislations.

slm – Well, for me, there’s no question that Hillary is far better than any Repub. WHen it comes to filling a seat in the SCOTUS, vetoing the craziest Repub bills, even if she doesn’t genuinely look out for the 99%, she isn’t going to let the worst of the Repub agenda get through while a Repub president would.

Murph – Presidential elections are mostly about the choice between the candidates. In primaries, there should absolutely be discernment, maybe Bernie isn’t the candidate you prefer, I’m talking about the GE though. In a choice between a Repub who could sign into law the worst that Repubs could pass or a Dem who we know wouldn’t…and appoint a liberal or moderate to the SCOTUS, there’s no hard choice to make.

Murph – Same here. Whichever Dem wins the primary will have my vote because the alternative would be disastrous. Even if Hillary or Bernie ended up disappointing, not going to war with Iran or killing the ACA would be far better than the alternative.

slm – At this age, she still looks to me and who I like. She knows Trump is a loon as are the rest of the Repubs. I haven’t committed myself yet because if Biden gets in the race, I would have to decide between him and Bernie…who are very similar on the issues. But I won’t vote for Hillary in the primary.

Yep, enjoyed it! I do think Biden should get in because as I’ve said from the start, knowing the Clintons and Hillary, she could undermine herself and whoever’s left in the race could become President.

In an odd way, Trump is making a Biden bid easier…..rough around the edges and speaking from the heart are now de rigeour….

Agreed, no matter what gaffes Biden could make, they’d pale in comparison to Trump’s. So Biden’s weakness is mitigated.

And everyone loves Biden, he has a real heart and that would mean a lot in a battle against Bush or Trump.

Right! ANd with the tragedies he’s endured, he’s a real person who can connect with the suffering of other people whereas Trump and Bush have only read about suffering.

Biden would take down Trump. She’d win in the end but a debate between Trump and Clinton might be a bit awkward.

You may remember, I’ve always mentioned Biden as a candidate I’d like to see run this year…back when we knew Bush would run and the extremist Ted Cruz would be the one making the GOP look terrible.
