Thank you, Goth! Isn't this great?! I'm over the Moon!

Governor Jerry Brown~

I bet! Gov Brown's not playin'

Course burnie's excuse will be that your Gov is just a part of the #establishment.

Awesome! Of course, BS will say Gov Jerry Brown is

just part to the "#establishment". ROFL!

Mahalo, rivers! Excellent Endorsement~

Really. Everything is all for him. he's never lied or hurled insults @ anyone..

It's just not fair.

Wow.. this is Great.. Mahalo, Iaaa!

A week before voters in California and five other states head to the polls, Hillary Clinton on Tuesday earned the endorsement of the NRDC Action Fund, marking the first time the political arm of the National Resources Defense Council has backed a presidential candidate.

In a statement from the NRDC Action Fund, the group's president Rhea Suh laid out the stakes in the looming presidential election, one that she wrote will be between Clinton and presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump. The endorsement makes no direct mention of Bernie Sanders, who is counting on a strong performance in all six states, particularly in California, as a boost of momentum heading into the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.

"Only one of those candidates wants to build a future powered by a clean energy economy. Only one of those candidates will make America a leader in the global fight against climate change. And only one of those candidates will work to ensure that every child and every family in America has clean water to drink, clean air to breathe, and a safe and healthy place to live," Suh wrote. "That candidate is Hillary Clinton, and that’s why — for the first time — the NRDC Action Fund is stepping up now to endorse Secretary Clinton for President of the United States."

The group ripped into Trump for what it said he would do to the environment.

BS has elevated his "hypocrisy" to off the charts.. kos is saying what we've

been saying..

"This is all part of Sanders’ pretensions of a contested primary. Ha ha, as if. Except it’s hard to laugh when it’s clear that Sanders seeks to divide the party heading into its face-off with Donald Trump. Ironic, huh? We thought it’d be the GOP divided and in civil war. Little did we know that Sanders’ kamikaze mission would wreak that on the Democrats instead."

brer~

OH yeah, Kos says the same thing..

I like how Kos puts this.. "The Sanders campaign emails be the most absurd shit you’ve ever seen."

The Sanders campaign emails be the most absurd shit you’ve ever seen.

In a formal credentials challenge, Sen. Bernie Sanders’ campaign on Friday asked for the ouster of two “aggressive attack surrogates” for Hillary Clinton from key Democratic National Convention committees.

The campaign called for the removal of Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy as a co-chairman of the Platform Committee and former Massachusetts Rep. Barney Frank as head of the Platform Committee.

“Governor Malloy and Mr. Frank have both been aggressive attack surrogates for the Clinton campaign,” Sanders campaign counsel Brad Deutsch wrote in a letter to the party’s Rules and Bylaws Committee. “Their criticisms of Sen. Sanders have gone beyond dispassionate ideological disagreement and have exposed a deeper professional, political and personal hostility toward the senator and his campaign.

Hmm, let’s see. Newly minted Democrat Bernie Sanders seeks to disqualify the first openly gay congressman who also happens to be the author of Dodd-Frank—the law Sanders would use to break up the banks, He also seeks to disqualify the architect of incredible progressive achievements in Connecticut, including paid family leave, stricter gun laws, and a dramatic decline in the state’s prison population. You know, two long-time Democrats who have done amazing shit. And why? Because they’re “aggressive attack surrogates” … in a political campaign! Try to contain your horror, please.

Meanwhile, in what is apparently not a joke, Sanders named Cornel West to the platform committee, who is not an “aggressive attack surrogate” at all… Sanders was supposedly the antithesis of a politician, yet here he is challenging the worst of them in the hypocrisy game.

The thing that sanders doesn't get is that.. he LOST.. it doesn't matter one whit how much these leaders called him out for his bad judgment.. He can't get anymore LOST.

"The answer: history says the first person to get to the magic number is the presumptive nominee,

and says it unambiguously, even if the losers often disagree."

snips from your link..

I'm crying now.. remembering it..

But when I watched this play out live back then, with its bizarre mix of the heartbreaking and the heartwarming, I cried. Like a baby. I think I could see the pain of watching the dream she had pursued for so long slip away. But on top of it is this pride in her party, which is less than 120 seconds away from voting in the first African-American candidate for the Presidency, with a good chance of taking back the White House.

Was it completely scripted? Yeah, the actions were. The feelings, however, were real. Mine, Clinton’s, the party’s. Chuckie Schumer’s. Everybody’s

In 2008, I was Anyone But Clinton, but in the end, it was she who taught me what it meant to be a Democrat.
.

First, most non-incumbent candidates have needed superdelegates to win, and the history of superdelegates has been that once a Democrat hits the magic number and becomes the nominee, superdelegates are more likely to flow to the nominee than from them.

Mahalo, bob.. good find!


Whoa... I just blew up one of your sig pics!



Unfortunately it's perfect, working!
