Oh, No! Hillary Clinton Wins






Hillary Clinton edged out her democratic socialist rival Bernie Sanders on Tuesday.

Hillary Clinton


Democrats haven’t had a more uninspiring candidate than Ms. Clinton in a generation.

Party regulars not excited by Ms. Clinton.

Most Democrats I talk to my age – Ms. Clinton’s key demographic supporters are seniors or minorities – are not only unexcited by Ms. Clinton. They are anxious.

Anxious that they are stuck with a candidate surrounded by controversy her whole career. A candidate who may be indicted at any moment over her e-mails.

Anxious that Ms. Clinton is a Baby Boomer who will appear tired on any debate stage with the newly-energized Marco Rubio or even (God forbid!) the whiny shape-shifter Ted Cruz.

Anxious that while voters seek real change, Ms. Clinton is a Back to the Future candidate that we have been seeing in politics since the 1980s.

Its very scary not to have a stronger Democratic presidential hopeful while the Republican field is filled with religious hysterics who are insensitive to minorities, women and anybody who has ideas newer than Calvin Coolidge’s administration.

But Democrats are stuck with her…unfortunately.

    “I’m Marco Rubio and I approved this message.”

    100 per cent correct on all points

  3. Talks like a politician says:

    Maybe it is time to impose some kind of mandatory retirement program for politicians. Election after election the same old names appear on ballots. Many of the candidates are similar to retread tires, worn out, but patched up and presented as viable.

    Think John McCain, Eleanor Sobel, Nan Rich, Mitt Romney, Charlie Crist, for examples. And of course, Hillary and Bernie.

    Set an age or an amount of time served, present a plaque, make a toast, cut a cake, and wave goodbye. Any one of the mentioned people could be a “public servant” in volunteer work.

    Buddy underestimates power of the Bernie Sanders campaign – big mistake!! #FeelTheBern http://berniesanders.com


    No, I don’t underestimate it. Sanders is not going to win the nomination, unless some further scandal breaks about Hillary. If he wins the nomination, Sanders will be beaten.

    More than 50 percent of the voters have said repeatedly they will not vote for a “socialist.”

    @HaHa, The Bern speaks a great game of giving everything away free. How can he lose! Who doesn’t want free college, free healthcare, and more free Obama phones! But I agree with Buddy he has 0% chance of winning the general election.

    As for Hillary, her crimes against the state (by allowing unsecured access on her personal server to more sensitive information than Snowden purposely leaked)will cause enough pause with Independents to ensure she loses as well in the general unless the ultimate Rep candidate disregards or insults enough Independents that they simply hold their nose and vote for Hillary. But she does start with a pretty large electoral base of states which could save her just like those 6 coin tosses did for her in Iowa.

    Wow, it is starting to sound a lot like our last Florida gubernatorial election with the Medicare fraud running against the has-been three time party flipper (who unbelievably is now running for Congress and will probably win).

    So sad for our country that there are no candidates like Reagan for the Reps or Kennedy for the Dems who can actually bring a positive future to our country.

    As to @#3, we already have term limits. It is called an election. Unfortunately the electorate chooses to keep returning so many retreads over and over again.

    Here’s the solution to your problem — instead of whining about long-serving politicians, work to vote them out.

    You are so wrong Nevins.
    Hillary will win. And men hoping not will be pissed.
    She will be different because she has a different perspective, finally. The stronger sex will win.
    The hard part will be getting out the vote.

  8. City Activist Robert Walsh says:

    I mean Hillary Clinton you are not making this very easy for those of us that support you. First the email bs, then now the big money you took for the speaking engagements from the banks etc. Then for you to say yeah they offered the cash , I took it(come on). Bernie(again) has a point. I mean its one thing after another. Going after the black vote because you are promising them the sun, moon, and stars won’t be enough to get you back in the White house. Be honest, be careful in how you address the money you where given for the speaking deals. She is coming across as Wall St. ha s her in their back pockets. Lastly those that know her. Tell her to throw some layers in that hair. Christ she looks like Bess Truman in a modern day pants suit. Spruce it up a bit. She can win but lately i.m not so sure….

  9. Ha Ha Ha says:

    It’s almost over for Hillary: This election is a mass insurrection against a rigged system
    Sanders has ended the coronation and fired up the grass roots. Now Clinton’s electability argument is crumbling too


  10. Ha Ha Ha says:

    @4 Buddy – Would you like to eat your words now – with a side dish of crow and humble pie for dessert – or are you saving that very special banquet for the day President Sanders is inaugurated?


    Sanders is far from victorious yet. He won one tiny state.

  11. Knows for Sure says:

    Buddy, I respectfully disagree.
    Bernie Sanders will be your next President. #feelthebern

  12. Count LF Chodkiewicz Chudzikiewicz says:

    Just on his lack of understanding foreign government health plans outside of small wealthy countries unlike ours DONT WORK Senator Sanders limited comprehension of foreign affairs and finance and the modern digital age’s changes in employment will kill him in the Democratic Primary so I dont have to consider the destruction of the Democratic Party in Congress if he was our nominee

    Six Responses to Bernie Skeptics
    SATURDAY, JANUARY 16, 2016

    1. “He’d never beat Trump or Cruz in a general election.”

    Wrong. According to the latest polls, Bernie is the strongest Democratic candidate in the general election, defeating both Donald Trump and Ted Cruz in hypothetical matchups. (The latest Real Clear Politics averages of all polls shows Bernie beating Trump by a larger margin than Hillary beats Trump, and Bernie beating Cruz while Hillary loses to Cruz.)

    2. “He couldn’t get any of his ideas implemented because Congress would reject them.”

    If both house of Congress remain in Republican hands, no Democrat will be able to get much legislation through Congress, and will have to rely instead on executive orders and regulations. But there’s a higher likelihood of kicking Republicans out if Bernie’s “political revolution” continues to surge around America, bringing with it millions of young people and other voters, and keeping them politically engaged.

    3. “America would never elect a socialist.”

    P-l-e-a-s-e. America’s most successful and beloved government programs are social insurance – Social Security and Medicare. A highway is a shared social expenditure, as is the military and public parks and schools. The problem is we now have excessive socialism for the rich (bailouts of Wall Street, subsidies for Big Ag and Big Pharma, monopolization by cable companies and giant health insurers, giant tax-deductible CEO pay packages) – all of which Bernie wants to end or prevent.

    4. “His single-payer healthcare proposal would cost so much it would require raising taxes on the middle class.”

    This is a duplicitous argument. Studies show that a single-payer system would be far cheaper than our current system, which relies on private for-profit health insurers, because a single-payer system wouldn’t spend huge sums on advertising, marketing, executive pay, and billing. So even if the Sanders single-payer plan did require some higher taxes, Americans would come out way ahead because they’d save far more than that on health insurance.

    5. “His plan for paying for college with a tax on Wall Street trades would mean colleges would run by government rules.”

    Baloney. Three-quarters of college students today already attend public universities financed largely by state governments, and they’re not run by government rules. The real problem is too many young people still can’t afford a college education. The move toward free public higher education that began in the 1950s with the G.I. Bill and extended into the 1960s came to an abrupt stop in the 1980s. We must restart it.

    6. “He’s too old.”

    Untrue. He’s in great health. Have you seen how agile and forceful he is as he campaigns around the country? These days, 70s are the new 60s. (He’s younger than four of the nine Supreme Court justices.) In any event, the issue isn’t age; it’s having the right values. FDR was paralyzed, and JFK had both Addison’s and Crohn’s diseases, but they were great presidents because they fought adamantly for social and economic justice.



    Bernie Sanders economics would be a disaster for the United States. It would increase government, i.e., government control over our lives. It would increase taxes, i.e., less money in all pockets but the very poor to spend as they see fit.

    Today’s New York Times, not exactly a conservative publication, has a very interesting article that Sanders’s numbers do not add up. It is entitled Left-Leaning Economists Question Sanders’s Plans and is linked here.

    Bernie is an old fart! He will never get elected.

    He has a LEGAL BASTARD son! He banged his girlfriend. Got her pregnant and then IMMEDIATELY left her!

    He voted 5 times Against the Brady Gun Bill.

    He applied to be a Conscientiousness Objector to get out of the Vietnam War. That means Bernie HAS TO BE AGAINST ALL WARS!

    How will he fight ISIS?

    Bernie: “I cannot fight ISIS!!!! I am a Conscientiousness Objector!!!!!”

    He had is honeymoon in Russia.

    The Donald will eat him alive and spit out tiny pieces.


    You are a TOTAL FOOL!
