About Me

"In America, anybody can be president. That's one of the risks you take." - Adlai Stevenson (1900-1965)

Journal Archives

If there were any doubt, here is Gov./Ambassador Richardson.

Richardson, who unsuccessfully sought the Democratic presidential nomination in 2008, said Hillary Clinton is the pro-business candidate who can win the White House in 2016.

While Sanders has pushed the party to the extreme left, Clinton will bring the message back to the center during the general election, said Richardson. He supported Barack Obama for president in 2008 over the former first lady, who later became Obama's secretary of state.

"Clinton is going to be somebody, I think, the American people see as moderate," Richardson said. "The country moves to the center in a general election."

We knew all along her parroting Bernie's causes was political theater, and guess what? It worked!!

"the pro-business candidate" - check!
"Clinton will bring the message back to the center" - check!
"moderate" - check!
"moves to the center in a general election" - check!

Funny how we Berners always knew this. She's moving back into the third-way, DLC cocoon. SURPRISE!!! NOT.

Interesting video. Very educational, but keeps your interest.

I guess I'm a little slow on the uptake....

I just now came to the realization that I need to put all HC supporters on ignore. I've seen no evidence they are willing to explain their support for HC, despite all of the evidence presented by other DU members that demand explanation.

The evidence isn't "it's time to have a woman president". For the record, I believe the vast majority of the electorate would vote for a woman, (period!!). However, people will also vote for the person (all things considered and all things being equal) that most appeals to their personal views.

Bernie Sanders has helped people understand it's not about anything other than who will change the status quo for the betterment of all Americans (regardless of any physical attribute that you were born with).

That statement is inclusive of people that deal with gender identity issues, which is an issue very close to my heart, and those that have been left out of American society. The people that represent the native tribes that were established on this continent WAY earlier than those that CONTINUE to subdue them. IT JUST TURNS MY STOMACH!!!!

Sorry for the rant - carry on....

The Parties Choose The Candidate, Not The Voters

Email received from Tim Canova - DWS is really one sick puppy.

Dear Sisters and Brothers -

Sunday, at the grand opening of the Broward County Democratic Party's new headquarters, I spoke in a crowded room with Debbie Wasserman Schultz. I asked if she had read the letter we had sent last week. She said she had not read any letter from our campaign, even though we had sent it to three of her addresses, including her campaign headquarters, her DWS PAC, and her office at the Democratic National Committee.

I then produced a copy and said “I was happy to hand deliver it.” She refused to take the letter and told me to give it to one of her staffers. I said I would, and I told her the letter was proposing a series of debates throughout the district. I asked her if she would agree to scheduling debates. She asked how we could have debates when no one has even filed yet. I reminded her of what she said recently about the Democratic presidential debates on The Daily Show, that she would want the candidates to debate every day, and I'm proposing a lot fewer than every day. She cut off the discussion without agreeing to a single debate.

Later, when I was leaving the party, I noticed her staffer standing near a doorway. I thought, well at least I can hand her staffer the letter proposing a series of debates. But she refused to accept the letter, she said she had “nowhere” to put them. I suggested she put them in one of the two huge pocket bags she had over each of her shoulders. She said there was no room and that she had read the letter already.

That’s fine, for now. If the Wasserman Schultz campaign wants to play games and lash out at me and my staff, then we’ll stay focused on talking to the voters about the progressive vision we have for this country.

Time for another reminder for the economically challenged.

Spreading more lies. Bernie NEVER said Hillary was not qualified to be President.

He was responding to Hillary's questioning HIS qualifications:

"My response is if you want to question my qualifications, then maybe the American people might wonder about your qualifications Madame Secretary," he said.

Sanders added: "When you voted for the war in Iraq, the most disastrous foreign policy blunder in the history of America, you might want to question your qualifications. When you voted for trade agreements that cost millions of Americans decent paying jobs, and the American people might want to wonder about your qualifications. When you're spending an enormous amount of time raising money for your super PAC from some of the wealthiest people in this country, and from some of the most outrageous special interests ... Are you qualified to be president of the United States when you're raising millions of dollars from Wall Street whose greed and recklessness helped destroy our economy?"


He was asking a question to Hillary. He was also asking what the American people thought.

NOT ONCE! Did he say she was not qualified. Then again, lies are the specialty of Hillary, her campaign, and her supporters.

All the Sandy Hook kids would still be dead whether the liability bill was passed or not.

All the people that perished over in Iraq would not be dead if the IWR wouldn't have passed.

That's a BIG difference in my mind. Hillary is responsible for those deaths along with the other senators that voted for it.

Bernie is not responsible for any deaths, and if he were he'd have more to say than "I made a mistake, let's move on".
