Hispanic Official to Leave R.N.C. in Sign of Disaffection With Donald Trump

Cancer has a higher approval among Latinos than Donald Trump does.

The head of Hispanic media relations at the Republican National Committee is resigning this month in what appears to be another indication of the lingering discomfort some party officials have about working to elect Donald J. Trump president.

Ruth Guerra, who is of Mexican descent and was in charge of carrying the party’s message to Hispanic voters, is joining the American Action Network, a Republican-aligned “super PAC,” she confirmed in a brief interview on Wednesday.

But Ms. Guerra told colleagues this year that she was uncomfortable working for Mr. Trump, according two R.N.C. aides who requested anonymity to speak candidly about the difficulties surrounding the party’s presumptive standard-bearer.

It is relatively rare for party staff members to leave the national committee in the midst of a presidential campaign unless they are going to work directly for the nominee.

I can't believe Zimmerman the creep is going to make mid 8 figures from sale of that gun

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2016/05/13/bids-george-zimmerman-gun-auction-top-50m/84319096/

Bidding in an online auction for the gun George Zimmerman used to kill Trayvon Martin was up to $65 million Friday morning as Internet trolls appeared to drive the offers to astronomic levels.

Bidding on the 9 mm Kel-Tec PF-9 pistol began at $5,000 and reached more than $65 million early Friday. The top bidder at one point used the screen name “Racist McShootface.” That account was later deleted. Another bidder used the name Tamir Rice, which is the name of a 12-year-old boy shot by police in Cleveland while carrying a toy gun.

The most recent bid topping $65 million is by someone identified as Craig Bryant.




Conservative writer P.J. O'Rourke endorses Hillary over Trump

Still, there are some conservatives who are not knuckling under to the New Normal of Trumpism Triumphant. One of my favorite resisters is the beloved conservative humorist P. J. O’Rourke, who says –wait for it – he’s voting for Hillary. And his explanation is interesting:

I am endorsing Hillary. The second worst thing that could happen to this country. But she’s way behind in second place, you know? She’s wrong about absolutely everything — but she’s wrong within normal parameters! . . . I mean, this man just can’t be president of the US. I mean, they got this button, it’s in a briefcase, he’s gonna find it.

Now, remember: P. J. O’Rourke is so right-wing that he once made fun of FDR as being on the wheelchair ramp to the Gates of Hell. That right-wing enough for ya? This is no “RINO GOPe cuck squish” we’re talking about here.

Sanders: "Of course she (Hillary) doesn't bear responsibility for Iraqi war deaths

You can see him say it starting at 2:27

I hold myself up to the judgment of this group regarding this accusation

http://www.democraticunderground.com/12511677501#post20

I hated the idea of "No Snitching" and I still do. I think its a terrible idea. But I submit myself to the judgment of this group.

Do you think I am racist for having that opinion?

Three more Pinocchios for #Bernocchio Hillary didnt call him unqualified

The Pinocchio Test

Sanders is putting words in Clinton’s mouth. She never said “quote unquote” that he was not qualified to be president. In fact, she diplomatically went out of her way to avoid saying that, without at the same time saying he was qualified. The Washington Post article appropriately noted that she raised questions about his qualifications, but certainly never said or suggested she said Sanders was unqualified.

Sanders would have been on safer ground if he had said Clinton is raising questions about his qualifications and now he would like to raise questions about her qualifications. But he can’t slam her for words she did not say.

I just realized that March 5 was the 1st anniversary of Rowdyboy's passing.

I just wanted to post that I still can't believe he is gone and he was one of my favorite DUers.

Please help me congratulate Cha and Cary who I have made hosts of this group.

Congrats!

A note about participation in this group. PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

Tx4Obama hasn't been posting on DU for a while so this group hasn't been managed. As a result there have been several OPs continuing the primary discussions here that better belong in GD-P.

This group is for supporting the Democratic Party, the DNC, state and local Democratic Parties and organizations and all Democrats. If your post is negative about the Democratic Party, a Democrat or supports one over another, it doesn't belong in this group.

Thanks.
