Thank you. Big kick

I know some people are too young to recall and are looking to their leaders to vouch for the Clinton

that's what people do. But the elders are criticizing Bernie for not knowing how to speak to black people. Mind boggling.

People think Bernie is going negative now and then? He could dismantle Hillary over this and her wars. Hillary supporters are dismissing her Iraq war vote because it was just one vote, it was a dozen years ago, and she said it was a mistake. Somehow, that offsets our permanent presence, trillions of dollars, hundreds of thousands of casualties, and the destabilization of the Middle East. Then she double downed on stupid and repeated this in Libya. Bush 41 said leave Saddam otherwise you'll destabilize the region. She was told that, and that's what happened in Iraq and Libya.

The fact that Hillary is getting a free pass is the only reason she leads Bernie. He could ruin her and Bill.

You're welcome, Hillary supporters.

If "urban" and "thug" are dog whistle terms, "gang" and "superpredator" sure as hell are, too

Now who referred to black youth using those terms when laying out the Clinton plan of mass incarsaration of black men?

"Black issues"

I don't know what black issues are but they clearly but you are helping me understand what they are not:
Not education
Not economic justice
Not racial justice
Not law enforcement
Not jobs

And something tells me you have to be wearing shades and playing a sax when you talk about these mysterious issues.

Anyway, bravenak, your red ass, hick state very well may pick our candidate, the vote for some knucklehead like Trump or Rubio. You guys hardly deserve the honor of picking the Dem candidate. One more day, then good riddance to SC. Hillary abandoned you years ago during her husband's admin (you're in denial of you believe she's always been there for you; "ending welfare as we know it" devastated poor black families), before moving on to become Senator of Wall Street and then SOS. I guess she earned a second chance.

Let me explain to you people, again, everything you need to know about this primary

What does Hillary have to do to get Obamacare?

What does Bernie have to do to get Obamacare?

Will Hillary get her pie-in-the-sky minor tweaks to Obamacare?
Not a chance (ergo, pie-in-the-sky)

Will Bernie get his overhaul?

This election is a choice between:
"The lesser of two evils (Democratic Party)" that's very best effort has put this country in the crapper. In other words, stay the course. This time will be different!...right. Now that's some serious pie-in-the-sky thinking.

And (Now pay attention)

Someone brave enough to say, "This lesser of two evils form of governing is, today, an abject failure. To say that it hasn't devolved thusly is delusional. To believe doing more of the same will dig us out of this quagmire is pie-in-the-sky thinking. I reject the 'Lesser of two evils' approach to governing and I am laying forth a new vision. We, as Progressives, have got to want more than 'stay the course.' This is the very best it can do. My opponent says, 'It's good enough.' I don't think it is!"

Class dismissed for now, but school remains in session.

And it scared the shit out of everyone, too (no it didn't)

The attack will come from the RW in the GE. No one fucking cares except Fox News viewers who wouldn't vote for Hillary.

This shit isn't that hard. Labels don't stick like they did. It's the boy who cried wolf syndrome.

Anyone remember what happened the last time a socialist ran for POTUS?

He got elected then re-elected.

And he was black
And he was born in Kenya
And he had a radical, black Reverend talking crazy

Hillary supporters are carrying the water for Fox News and Karl Rove. Hillary supporters remember the days when those labels scared Americans to death. Obviously, they don't anymore. In fact, socialist polls favorably, today.

I've said for a while, Hillary's supporters are using the Fox fear mongering tactic. Fortunately, Fox viewers were never in play. Fox fear mongering tactics are making it challenging for Bernie to reach the 65+ demographic. But that makes a lot of sense, they are the only ones who remember when these labels were the boogie man.

Forget all else. Turnout is THE issue. Rs have it, we don't

Another historic primary. You've got a Democratic woman from the "Stay the course even if it means nothing gets done" Party vs an Independent hell bent on "blowing it all the fuck up even if it means nothing gets done."

It has nothing to do with primaries in general. 2008 was another historic Primary but today's turnout is nowhere near those numbers, state after state. You're argument falls apart because the same could have been said of 2008.

There seems to be some paralysis on the part of the Democratic electorate. Is it learned helplessness? Watching your Hope and Change get obstructed for 7 years could cause PTSD...???

At the same time, this primary has the Rs energized. They are setting turnout records state after state.

Something is going on and it's not good. This is a BFD, too.

Water under the bridge.

That's why I read a lot of articles. The Clinton policies ruined blacks economically and created a new industry based on incarcerating black men.

It appears to me that the R Party is 2 cycles ahead of Dems

The Rs were infiltrated by the Tea Party and its national pols have moved further to the right. Bernie has demonstrated one thing: the Third Way establishment is falling out of favor and being forced to, at least campaign, to the left as both Obama and now Hillary are doing. The radical R governs the way they campaign whereas the Dems campaign left, then govern right of center. To their own detriment: it can only turn people off. The next step would be to see a New Deal party aligned with Bernie's ideas to emerge. The Third Way is DOA.
