Voting for the Democratic nominee in November is critical

As much as I love Bernie and his plans, if Hillary or a bag of sand (for that matter) is the the Democratic nominee, I intend to vote for that nominee. I will be honest, I will be holding my nose tightly as it looks like it will be Hillary but compared with what the heartless Rs are putting up as an option, she will be an obvious choice. Remember people if Trump or any other Republican manages to get in there is what will be in jeopardy:

-Supreme court will have 2 or possibly 3 hard core conservative judges confirmed. We already have one vacancy and the 2 most likely to retire are sane judges Ginseberg and Brenner. An Alito type court majority will reverse gains made in civil rights in the last 40 years. I want whoever has a D by his/her name to be the President shaping the court for generations. Remember we get to vote for President every 4 years. Supreme Court judges are appointed for life. You don't want Trump to be replacing these judges. My grudge with Hillary pales in comparison to what is at stake

-Obamacare and any good it is doing and any hopes of improving it will be erased completely

-Any policy or executive order designed or implemented by Democrats in the last 8 years to help the poor, the middle class, and any disadvantaged group will be reversed with a Republican president...and with a revenge I might add

-A Republican president, especially an egomaniac like Trump, is very likely to get the country in dangerous wars just to prove his "toughness" than a Democratic one....see Bush the lesser.....and many many more reasons not to give the Rs any chance this November. GO Democrats!!!!

Hillary Clinton is Republicans' best hope to win in November

Hillary will help Republicans eke out a win in November because:
She doesn't inspire people to go out of their way and vote--which will depress turn out and help the R candidate

She comes off as arrogant and entitled to most independents without whom wining swing states is impossible--another help to the R candidate

She will energize most R voters who hate her with passion to turn out in force

Most young voters will stay at home on election day because her status quo message and what she represents simply doesn't excite anyone

Most ardent Bernie supporters will be too depressed to go out and vote for a candidate who was collecting millions from big banks to give them speeches they like and has never forcefully spoken for the middle class or the poor until election time


Nominating Bernie will solve all the above mentioned problems for Democrats and nominating Hillary just because "it is her turn" or she has the Clinton last name, and ignoring her horrible record, will definitely give the Rs a fighting chance. The possibility of a Hillary nomination is what is giving Rs a little bit of hope for November as they know Bernie Sanders will present a night and day type contrast with them and will give Democrats a landslide win, if he were the nominee.

Hillary is ready and poised ..to lead Democrats to a landslide defeat in November

Her negatives are sky high and she will manage to drive it even higher in the coming months. She will depress turnout so significantly that whatever turd is presented as the Rs nominee will be sworn in as the next POS. She is basically "it is my turn" type of candidate with no genuine belief in anything and with a personality as lovable as a fast talking used car salesman/woman.

Bernie comes off as a genuine human being who really means what he says

Hillary comes off as a typical politician who will say anything to get elected. She seems to wait to see which way the wind blows to take a position, and even then it is not a firm position.

Even last night at the CNN town hall, she seems to have been told by her handlers to mind the volume of her voice and sounded a whole lot quieter than her normal tone of speech. She just does anything to get votes. Bernie is always himself.

Democrats will be committing electoral suicide if Hillary gets the nomination with all her baggage and sky high negatives with the general public. She just comes off as a used car sales man turned politician and that never sells with the majority of general election voters among whom, independents who determine who wins or loses in swing states. She just is not presidential material.

Bernie should flood Ohio with exact sampe Nafta mailer Obama used in 08

The Bernie campain should copy the play book Obama used in 2008 in Ohio and spread far and wide the message Obama used against Hillary---that she is a big supporter of unregulated free trade deals such as NAFTA that cost Ohio and the rest of America countless manufacturing jobs....remind voters that she panders to them during election time and wouldn't lift a finger to address this outsourcing/jobs issue when it is not an election season.

Why does Van Jones on CNN keep saying Bernie can't catch up?

In the last few days, even after Bernie's suprise Michigan win, Van Jones on cn keeps saying unless Bernie starts to win every remaining state left by about 40 points or more, he wouldn't be able to catch up to Hillary? Although I trust that he has studied this more closely than I, it still doesn't sound like something logical..if I am correct Hillary's pledged delegate lead is about 400 or so right? If so, there are close to 40 states left to compete in and if Bernie wins in most of them, why is it impossible to catch up to or pass Hillary in the end?

Can anybody care to explain?

If Bernie is already pronounced not to be able to catch up to Hillary even though he is winning and got the big Mo, why don't the pundits come out right and ask Bernie to give it up already....it is really astounding..they show Bernie is beating Hillary in almost the most important catagories and in the same breadth they speak as if she already has the nomination wrapped up.

Fascinating bit of info I heard on what may have saved Pres Kennedy

I was watching CSPAN's American History tonight and; the former Dallas Times Herald journalist (forgot his name) who wrote a book on JFK's assassination. He said the back brace Kennedy was wearing might have been what basically killed him. He said the first bullet that went through Kennedy's neck and came out through his throat and hit Gov Connelly who was sitting infront of him made the governor slump sideways to his wife's lap. Kennedy would certainly have slumped sideways after taking the first shot thus would have missed the following shot that killed him. His back brace, which doctors later described as being very thick, prevented the side slump and held him in position to be the perfect target for the second fatal shot from Oswald that destroyed his brain. Had the brace not been there he would have fallen sideways onto Jackie's lap and most certainly would have survived that first shot just as the Texas governor who was hit by the same bullet had. It is tragic and sad that something that was there to support Kennedy's back served unintentionally as a target holder for Oswald. Painful to think about it.

Deluded Republicans excited at this junk model predicting a Romney win :)

To begin your day with a smile at their stupidity and the bubble they were in until their rude awakening on election night, just go to google and search 'model predicts a romney win' and see what comes up . Here is a snippet from theblaze.com playing up a predicting model designed by 2 university of colorado professors which predicted a romney landslide. Who needs facts, reality, and the tested Nate Silver's model when you can have Dick 'always wrong' Morris' prediction of a Romney landslide right out of his fat ass, Peggy Noonan's 'feeling', and these two nut professors who can design a model to show their guy Ronney will win big, right??? I even heard a local right wing radio nut masturbating while interviewing one of these professors and agreeing a certain Romney victory, facts and real polls be damned . Here is a quote:

Their 2012 model made headlines two months ago because, despite polling, it found that Republican presidential candidate Romney would win 320 Electoral Votes, stealing the White House away from President Barack Obama. Now, an updated version of their study has come to the same conclusion — but it intensifies the numbers behind a predicted Romney win.

Despite the fact that polls still show a dead-heat race (Obama is currently at 48.2 percent, with Romney capturing 47.3 percent of likely voters in the most recent Real Clear Politics average), an updated election model shows an even larger gap between the Electoral College votes that Romney and Obama are projected to win. According to Bickers and Berry, the Republican challenger is projected to take 330 of the 558 votes, while Obama is expected to capture only 208 of them.

Republicans love America ONLY when they win elections

Republicans love the United States only if they are in power. If the American people hand them defeat at the ballot box, well then their reaction is "we want secession," "America is going to hell". Well dumb fucks you lost the election. Learn to live with it and enough with your childish tantrums. I bet you if secession was put on the ballot it won't get even 10pct of the vote.

Companies downsizing because of Obamacare hurt themselves and help the competition

Companies laying off employees and cutting on working hours just because they refuyse to adapt and allow employees to have healthcare will significantly hurt their bottom line and give their competitors to produce more and eventually knock them out of contention. We should identify and support companies that value their employees as much as their profits. Obamacare helps companies save a lot on healthcare because of the many prevetatve provisions in it in the long term and you would have to be a short sighted, fox-brainwashed nut to thinkl it will hurt your profits.
