Clinton's Weaknesses Are Hidden by Republican Disarray

NOV 22, 2015 12:15 PM EST
By Albert R. Hunt


There's cause for concern in Hillaryland, the constellation of Democratic advisers, supporters and politicians counting on the former secretary of state to lead the party to a sweeping victory next November.

Hillary Clinton's nomination is almost a forgone conclusion, barring any unlikely legal or health issues. Democrats will offer a more coherent and unified front for the general election than fractious Republicans.

Still, this optimism is based on the weakness of the opposition, and ignores the candidate's own glaring vulnerabilities.

The worries of some Clinton insiders are focused on the general election. There is an "enthusiasm gap." She doesn't excite important constituencies: young people, independents, possibly even minority voters.

To be sure, a number of women, especially middle-aged ones, are energized by the prospect of electing the first female U.S. president. That's a strong asset.

But Clinton has a striking problem with young voters. A recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll showed a solid plurality of young voters has a negative view of Clinton. She did even worse in Bloomberg Politics national poll.

52 Years Ago... The Peace Speech, American University...

This is one example revealing Kennedy's threat to the MIC and everyone who would benefit from war.

Bernie Sanders want to raise minimum wage to $15, Hillary Clinton wants to raise it to $12...

How do you weigh in?

Official 2015 Democratic Party Survey COULDN'T BE MORE BIASED...

Just received something that pretends to call itself a party survey it in the mail today (At the top of the survey is my DNC Membership #, Registration, Survey Tracking Scalene, please return by Dec 15, and the rest of the blah-blah-blah.)

Here's why it's biased -

After section I (personal information), there is a section II, III, IV, V (comments) and VI (soliciting contributions)

With the exception of where one fills out personal information and gives comment, every section has a multiple choice question. It even recognizes every Republican candidate running in the 3rd part of section III with the question, "Which Republican presidential hopeful do you believe would be the hardest to defeat in 2016?"

However, Section II, (The 2016 Elections) has no multiple choice and there is no objective reason as to why. That section's question is, "Which Democratic candidate do you support to be our Party's 2016 presidential nominee?"

IT'S LEFT BLANK.
One has nothing to check off. Therefore, unless you get a VAST alternative amount of daily news that includes Bernie Sanders, many Democrats would have to come up with it. That's right... WRITE IT IN!

Now WHY DO YOU SUPPOSE a survey who's content potentially could be weighed has no way of quantitatively evaluating the Democratic candidate?

Why, when you pick up media talking about the 2016 Presidential race, can you unconditionally see Hillary Clinton's name referred to over and over. MANY of these (also biased) articles don't even bother to MENTION Bernie Sanders name.

This THIS official party survey pretends to quantitatively evaluate who Democrats support in 2016.


I've never been as insulted by the attempt by these party hacks to misrepresent my party as much as I was when I pulled the envelope open and feasted my eyes on this HORRID example of a survey. This is PURE horse shit. And, it's now being circulated into mailboxes guaranteed to offer yet another data set that PRETENDS to address what we want in this country.

Well I couldn't let it go without a call, which I just finished. I recommend that you give them your opinion. I was told DWS would be given my complaint. I added how disappointed I was in her as Chair. I told the person answering the DNC in Washington that it was INSULTING, and that I wasn't happy with the Chair's performance, and this was ONE MORE REASON for feeling that way.

BTW, the phone number of the DNC is 1-877-336-7200. Let them know how you feel, assuming you got this piece of shit in the mail, too.



Champion UFC fighter Ronda Rousey's Feeling the Bern...

(cross-post from Bernie Sanders Group)
Im voting for Bernie Sanders, because he doesnt take any corporate money, Rousey said. I dont think politicians should be allowed to take money for their campaigns from outside interests.

Check in here if you have a L0oniX fly!

I love these flies.... I wish I could thank the LORD OF THE FLIES!!!

Yeah... it's so contrived, this campaign commercial...

But, it ain't Bernie's. I'm cross posting it here, because I'm sure my comment would be unwelcome in GD-P. But, I can't help but notice because it's very obvious to me as a viewer how "constructed" it is. if I went for, "phony heads nodding on cue... or, if I was to think up something phony or staged, not spontaneous, THIS would be the commercial...

Which makes me all the more appreciate genuine dialogue with people who don't need to "nod" on cue. They have a genuine connection with Bernie Sanders.... and she... does.... NOT.

This Saturday's report (hitting the streets of Pittsburgh for Bernie Sanders)

We've been doing a few Saturdays so far... first one was a few weeks ago, university area of Pittsburgh (CMU and Pitt). Today, Squirrel Hill area of Pittsburgh Major areas around Synagog and shopping district.

MANY young and older people with excellent response. MANY cars honking and thumbs up, most of whom were black drivers who shouted "Go! BERNIE!!!"

Very encouraging. Next Saturday, we'll hit Wilkinsburg, which is a socially/economic strained area.

Anyone reading this in the Pittsburgh area, please PM me!

You'll Love Naomi Klein's Take on the Pope's Popularity...

Responding to host Larry Wilmore's question on why the pope has become such a celebrity, the This Changes Everything author said, "I don't think it's about religion. I don't think it's that suddenly people are converting to Catholicism. I think basically he's kind of like Bernie Sanders in a white dress, and people are psyched about it."
