4. Incredible how the MSM continues to report a lie

"Hillary Clinton's commanding Democratic primary victories in Ohio and Rhode Island and her narrow win in Texas"

2. The media has dropped Obama from all of their coverage
and people thought Hillary was getting an unfair shake? She now dominates all headlines both on the net and on TV. Obama is only covered now when he is brought up by Hillary, otherwise we wouldn't even see his name. Hillary cried and cried until she got her way and the media has sucked it up. She's like the spoiled little brat with a name they can't leave alone. Forget what's best for the country, it's all about drama.

7. Is Op arguing that Vermont was called before Rhode Island and effectively it was 12 wins?
This is really silly and childish....

9. who gives a shit
granting your point, it doesn't frigging matter. count the delegates. that's what matters. Like in baseball, its the sum of the Ws and Ls at the end of the season, not how many you won in a row.

You think somehow if they wrote "12" it would create greater "momentum" and seal the deal?
Ha!
