    Why do Berners never mention Hillary’s work with Marian Wright Edelman?

    Why do Hillarybots never mention her voting for the Iraq War (lotta innocent brown kids died from that), the Patriot Act (founding fathers would be puking if they saw that), and the Wall Street Bailouts (all those Goldman Sachs speeches literally paid off!)? Because it is inconvienient to their own brainwashing.

    Also, in 2008 there were more Dem voters than went to McCain than there were Dem voters that voted for Trump in 2016. FACTS.

    https://twitter.com/jmillerlewis/status/900429108487876609

    “It’s ridiculous to suggest that Bernie supporters sunk Clinton. 25% of Clinton voters in 2008 voted for McCain and Obama won in a landslide.”

    https://twitter.com/jmillerlewis/status/900454144284266497

    And here’s some more context: about 13% of all Trump voters cast a ballot for Obama in 2012.

    Only about 9-12% of Bernie voters crossed party lines and voted for Trump by comparison. The election was so winnable for Hillary, but she had too much baggage and was widely known for being inconsistent in her policies, greedy, and bloodthirsty when it came to wanting more wars.

    Also, she didn’t even support gay marriage until 2013!!! Talk about a DINO (Democrat In Name Only)! Bernie has supported it since forever! Again, inconvenient for Hillarybots to acknowledge. Imagine if it had taken Bernie that long to support same-sex marriage. Would there be any mercy for him? No, of course not, since he isn’t a woman and doesn’t have identity politics on his side, even though he is Jewish.

    This will be my last comment on this matter. I don’t have enough free time in my life to spend it doing others basic research on political candidates for them. Please, everyone, don’t just pick and choose facts as they suit your heavily manipulated (by major corporate media outlets with anti-economic progressive agendas) predetermined perspectives. That is all.

    It’s really a shame how you didn’t answer my question. Before you pulled that whataboutism garbage, you should’ve at least answered that question. Whatever.

    Regarding 2008, the Democrats were in a much better position to win the presidency than 2016. The economy was in shambles, Bush was historically unpopular and McCain was essentially running for Bush’s third term.

    A political party hasn’t held onto the WH after an eight-year incumbent since Bush, Sr. succeeded Reagan. 2016 was a swing election and the electorate was changing. It wasn’t nearly as much as a winnable election as everyone would have you believe.

    Good analysis here, couldn’t resist sharing it.

    Now those are some fine posts by Teridax  re: Bernie.  Anyone with any political acumen knows Hillary stole the nomination from Bernie.  It was when Bernie said “I support Hillary” that I lost all respect for him.  He certainly could have beaten Trump but we’ll never know, thanks to Ms. Pantsuit.

    And

    On no occasion did I ever say I thought Ruth Bader Ginsberg was in a coma.  I am certain I quoted the source, and then added something about how this, hiding the truth about her condition,  would be the kind of thing Lefties would do.

    So where is she?  It would be comforting to hear from her.

    President Trump’s State of the Union address, scheduled for Tuesday, will present “an inspiring vision of American greatness” and a call for bipartisanship in a divided Congress, according to the White House.

    The address, which starts at 9 p.m., will be delivered to more than 40 million people.  I suspect it will surpass 40 M.

    One thing is certain, it will be better than last nights Worst Superbowl Ever.

    Today would have been Trayvon Martin’s 24th birthday. RIP Trayvon, in spite of your tragic murder your memory lives on. The fight for justice continues.

    Virginia Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam  

    He had the despicable nickname of ‘Coonman’.

    Northam’s blackface antics have led to a 41-point drop in support, yet a staggering number of Democrats still approve of him.  Morning Consult tracking found a 41-percentage-point drop in Northam’s net approval rating, yet 50% of Virginia Democrats support him.

    So half of Virginia Democrats support a racist, which would suggest that they too are racists.  Historically Democrats have been racists and very little has changed since they opposed the Emancipation Proclamation of January 1, 1863.

    SOTU

    The US economy is amazing and is supporting the worlds economy.

    Because of the robust US economy, the world recession predicted and hoped for by globalists has not occurred.

    The president is expected to use some of his televised address to showcase a growing economy. Despite the shutdown, the U.S. economy added a robust 304,000 jobs in January, marking 100 straight months of job growth. That’s the longest such period on record.

    also

    It’s good to see Ruth Bader Ginsberg out and about…she is a National Treasure, and akin to our 92 yr. old Queen Elizabeth…long may they reign.

    CNN analysis is mere bagatelle.

    This was easily the best SOTU address in my lifetime.   Imagine an hour and a half of Obama ZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

    Has any other president delivered such a heart-felt call for unity?  The answer is NO!  Has any other president delivered a SOTU speech that was not tedious, interminable and boring?  Well, maybe JFKs 1963  SOTU address…  President Trump is in good company here…The Gettysburg address also rocked, but not a SOTU address…though it helped unify and console a nation.

    I was captivated from moment one.  President Trump told the truth and it makes Leftists crazy (no challenge there, it’s an existing condition).

    Washington (CNN)Democratic Party rising star Stacey Abrams sharply criticized the Trump administration and Republican leadership on Tuesday night in her response to the President’s State of the Union address.
    Abrams blamed the President for the recent partial government shutdown.

    Abrams, who has made voting rights a signature issue, warned during her speech that voter suppression is “real” and described protecting the right to vote as “the next battle for our democracy.”  Voter suppression of Republican voters and voter fraud by the Democrats is now common practice (Orange County, for ie.)

    Actually, Stacey, you are supposed to attack the speech point by point.  Major fail.

    That State of the Union was the worst I’ve ever seen.
