12. Tear down Hillary Clinton to get Jeb, yeah, that's the ticket
Fri May 10, 2013, 08:41 PM
May 2013

but it will make some feel good I guess.

like those that unplug a fire hydrant full blast
keep it on all day and it's 100 outside

til later in the day there is a fire
and the fire hydrant is empty and the house burns down

only one who is happy is the arsonist who opened the hydrant in the first place, to watch the ashes

they want the democratic party to get down in the gutter
because they can deal with that

Reminds me of Jackie Robinson. What his enemies couldn't deal with is that they couldn't phase him, that he stared them down and remained calm and cool in the face of 100% negatism thrown at him.

Dr. King knew that too. Never stoop to their level.
They can't defeat it.

Stoop to their level and one already lost.

They can't touch President Obama, and in actuality, they are HELPING Hillary.
I predict 100 million votes for her in 2016.(the record is I think 69).

Exactly right. CaliforniaPeggy May 2013 #1

Is there something untrue on the post to which you responded? Hissyspit May 2013 #14
No. The fact that Obama said that garbage is what pissed me off. Gravitycollapse May 2013 #15
