Tue Mar 15, 2016, 02:50 PM

Heard Sherrod Brown Was On Either MSNBC Or CNN This A.M. And

was talking about how Hillary has such a GREAT Trade Policy that she's adopted and that's why he's supporting her.

WELL about 30 minutes ago I heard on Thom Hartmann's Show that the "inside the beltway" as per "Goats For The Old Goats" that he's ACTUALLY being considered as a running mate for HILLARY! Wasn't Victoria Jones who said it, but the other woman he has on from there all the time. Can't remember her name, but she reports for them. THEY have some extremely good inside track news all the time.

So Now I See Why He's has gone all RAH, RAH for Hillary! Not that this stuff doesn't happen all the time... but I was fooled again! I thought he was one of the Good Democrats who stood with us! I knew he came out to support her early on, and was disturbed at that time, but TODAY OF ALL DAYS it's getting reported! Sheered Brown OF OHIO! Thanks DUDE... NOT!

WOW, guess this was PLANNED some time ago by The Clinton Machine! Roll out Sherrod Brown on Primary Day! I'm seeing RED like I've never seen it before.

Sherrod Brown, Howard Dean and so many more! No way I'll remain a Democrat after this election. Not only do I feel FORCED to vote for Hillary should she win the Primary, NOW I have to wade through crap like this from people I DID think would stand with us!

I've had it!

Sorry if this has been posted already... My head just exploded and my dislike for Hillary just grew so large I can't even put it into words!

Never in my life have I even considered leaving The Democratic Party until this election. Depending on what happens in November I'm OUT! You can attack me all you want, but I've been stabbed one too many times!!

All the Dems I know have had it. We are fed up with the DNC, with DWS and now I see an article online where Slick Willy made a deal with Gingrich in 1987 to privatize SS and the only reason it fell through was because of his Lewinsky affair.

These people are a cancer on democracy and do not in any way belong in this party - or maybe I don't belong anymore. They achieve the same ends as the filthy repukes - what is the difference anymore?

It's an easy choice for some of these people because Bernie is not vindictive - the Clinton's reportedly are. SO there is little downside in supporting Hillary over Bernie.

31. "Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown Dismisses VP Speculation" Toledo Blade, March 15. Posted 2:09 PM ET

As Ohioans head to the polls to vote in the presidential primary today, speculation is growing that Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown could be a running mate for the eventual Democratic nominee.



Mr. Brown, 63, the two-term senator from Cleveland, supports Hillary Clinton in the primary and according to a story posted on thehill.com today, he would complement the former secretary of state well. For his part, Brown is dismissing talk of his vice presidential potential.

In a written statement to The Blade he said ”“I do not want to be Vice President. I feel lucky to be Ohio’s Senator, and working for our state is the only job I want.” The Hill article highlighted Mr. Brown’s populist appeal, saying it would help Mrs. Clinton attract voters who tend to support candidates such as U.S. senators Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, who is her primary rival. Other observers also have recently noted Mr. Brown’s prospects as a vice presidential candidate.

Cleveland attorney James Robenalt, a presidential historian, and Kyle Kondik, of the University of Virginia Center for Politics, and author of The Bellwether: Why Ohio Picks the President, both told The Blade last week they believe Ohio Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown is a possible vice-presidential candidate this year. The Clinton campaign did not respond to requests for comment today on the vice presidential speculation.

I never said he said it on MSNBC. I didn't even say it was MSNBC because I wasn't sure if it was CNN OR MSNBC. Read what I said. I'll check out her name at FSTV.

Not so sad, and NOT sour grapes!

I know he is a Clinton supporter, but it is odd to see him defending her on an issue where his own views are much closer to Bernie's.

That said, of all the people she might pick as veeps he is one of the better ones.

26. Sherrod endorsed her a while ago.

He and his wife are friends of the Clinton's. Connie talks about how welcome Hillary made her feel and good advice that she gave her. Sherrod's wife has been very, very pro-Hillary since before the '08 election. Sherrod didn't endorse in '08. His mother was still alive and I asked her which way the Senator was leaning. She only told me that she (Mrs. Brown) was for Obama, Sherrod's brother was for Obama, Sherrod's other brother was for Obama... this was all told to me with the most lady-like Georgian accent. I think the Senator was very much torn between the two.

He is closer to Senator Sanders on many things. He may have simply thought at the time that Hillary had the better resume, fundraising and machine to win. I think Bernie really caught a lot of dem pols by surprise with his success.

One thing to remember about these progressive dems that are endorsing Hillary, they've all fund raised for each other and campaigned together as being members of the dem party.

Sherrod is still a progressive Dem. I'm sure he will very much support Senator Sanders if he wins. However, Hillary has campaigned for him, probably donated toward his campaigns and Sherrod's wife is very emotionally invested in a Hillary presidency.

27. Oh Well, THIS Election Is Like NOTHING I've Ever Seen, AND I'm

VERY much UPSET that This Democratic Party just has rolled over. Explain it how you will, but the reality for me is that a Hillary Presidency may do more damage than our so called LEADERS think!

I know what I'm going to do after this one and I can assure you I AM NOT ALONE. If anyone is thinking that it's only Repubs that are imploding they're just not paying attention. Bernie WOULD never have gotten this far and had so much support if THIS Party was in any way satisfied.

I've said it so many times these past 6 months... I will do the DIRTY deed and vote for her, but then I'm DONE. This isn't an idle threat and I've never been anything but a Democrat. Ever since the Viet Nam era.

I'm so very disgusted and I no longer trust this Democratic Party, it sickens me! I feel I've wasted too many years fighting for what I KNOW should be good for this country. I AM tired out this much I know. I know it sounds like I'm a quitter, but I've given them at least 45 years of my life and worked very hard.

I'll do what I need to do, not giving up on Bernie in any way, but when I see so many Democrats that I once felt were liberals, then started saying Progressive and NOW morphing into DLC/Third Way, it no longer represents me.

May the REVOLUTION rise up and fight back. I will be there for that, but for all these Democrats who I feel have left us down I no longer believe in where they want to take this Party.

Feeling like a worn out DISH RAG isn't how I want to feel and it most certainly isn't good for my health.

So we march on until November! GO BERNIE, I fight with YOU! It seems you've taken on the world and my admiration for you WILL never die. It ain't over yet!

29. I understand how you feel.

I had such hope after we elected Obama. I thought once he saved the economy and got us out of the wars, we would have a progressive resurrection. The dems had no idea how to counter the tea party and too many rolled over. We had too many run away from the President and a progressive agenda in 2010 and the establishment has only become more establishment.

34. And A GREAT Book It Is...

He was roundly criticized, but you know what? It's moved up to NUMBER SEVEN, most popular book. Can't recall which list, but the BIG ONE!

And there's another person who wrote a similar book and he was on the Bill's show last week. After Obama, knowing about the the meeting on the night he was inaugurated DECIDED to try and Compromise with the other side! My first indication of howe he was going to govern. Did he get some legislation passed, yes... but overall IMO he was never aggressive enough.

Today, I think it was on Watching The Hawks on RT, or Boom Bust one of those programs they talked about how Libya had failed as a foreign affairs effort. Some praise for Kerry, but overall apparently they were saying that France and another country were left out to dry. Obama was trying to save face and these countries weren't particularly happy.

It was commented that his foreign affairs policies haven't been very successful and that he should have consulted more with the Pentagon.

There's much more that I've learned from RT and FSTV because they actually REPORT real news that we need to hear. Joe Papantonio is a fountain of information and could probably fill a book about Hillary Clinton and the Obama Administration and deals that have been made, especially with Big Pharma. I've begun to see more reporters there that used to be on MSM and they DO REPORT. I don't know HOW Clinton won, she's very unpopular and so many who know the real stories about many deals say THIS COUNTRY is really headed in the wrong direction.

I now fear it's worse than I thought. I'm not giving up on Bernie, especially because I now listen to these other channels, but it's scary what we may be in store for.

I've been unable to wrap my head around Clinton's wins because of Bernie's popularity. His ability to raise so much money when needed. He actually has money on hand where Clinton does not. So many rallies with thousands of people ALL THE TIME and yet here we are. Did all these people not vote? People who contribute money and those thousands of people don't vote? How can this be? I know what these comments sound like, but it just doesn't add up for me. I know so, so many people here in my RED county who Bernie has attracted.

I knew FL wasn't going to take FL, 65% of the people voted absentee some time ago. Bernie held a rally in Tampa last week, he had 10,000 people there at the same time Hillary had 600 people attend in the same city! THIS has happened over and over and over and still she wins.

She tells outright lies that are proven within hours, and still she wins. It's mind boggling that she has such a low energy campaign going and her negatives are so high, and still she wins. I wonder if we'll ever find out how this can happen.

Yes, our Democratic Party has failed us over and over and there WILL be a backlash, I'm sure of it. Bernie has started a movement that's not going to go away. I've been happy to finally see this enthusiasm which has been gone for so many years.

I wonder how Hillary can win anything near the respect and trust people have felt with Bernie. I doubt it. She has the POWER BROKERS for sure and no matter what she's telling everyone in her speeches right now I'm sure they DO WANT a return on their dollars.

Heard something interesting about something the dictator Juan Peron of Argentina said once when talking about how to win. Said "you pick up a guitar with your left hand, but you play it with the right!" THAT'S HILLARY and that's what this man said about BOTH the Clintons. He said they're no difference between the two, they really are two for one and he was no fan of theirs.

Yep, strange how this is going. Shenanigans over and over... nothing sticks o them. Will they eventually implode? I think it may happen. Oh, and he also said they were VERY NIXONIAN! Scary indeed.

35. Please watch this CSpan Book TV video

you only need to watch the panel - questions afterwards - except maybe one or two - aren't very interesting. But Ari Berman and John Nichols are very, very interesting. http://www.c-span.org/video/?406242-10/panel-discussion-politics I hope you can watch it. I think it requires a cable subscription. John Nichols considered this election a crucial one for a country at a crossroads economically and politically. I am very depressed.

I just can't watch it. I KNOW what's happened is so, so wrong and have been talking about reaching this point in America where you can almost feel some sort of DOOM approaching, and now it's gotten too close.

Not sure I'm fully prepared for what's to come. All we say will be looked upon as sore losers but that's just not it for me. I'm depressed no doubt but now my FEAR is what I'm feeling the most. I feel no hope, don't even know what to do at this moment.

Of course you'll go through this again and of course, when it doesn't work, you'll say the same thing as you wind down. Real change comes when people demand it without giving in. I will vote Green. The only thing the establishment will understand is when they see a third party actually pulling their votes away. Enough of us do that and we will make the change we desire.

I imagine like most, you'll continue to support the status quo out of fear.

NO, I won't continue to work, only for Bernie out of protest. But I can't support her, just can't do it. If it's going south then it's going south.

Building a new Party will take a lot of time and I agree a message MUST be sent. But I'm probably much older than you and I'm simply worn out. Not filling out an absentee ballot that automatically comes to my house can be done.

The Clintons WILL have so much power and they've shown they can put on a shiny veneer and sell the snake oil. They've been at it for all their lives. I detest them now more than ever. I know so many who feel the same way.

proposals. No lies. And folks in OHIO listened. Stop with the constant saying he and other surrogates are lying. It does you no good. Only makes you look silly. Ohio was won by a huge margin. Votes want to know HOW--the details of a plan. Bernie has not supplied details to his--shut down all trade meme.
