They've blocked Obama for eight years, no reason to think they would do any different for the next 4-8.

It would be nice to see them be bipartisan, and rather than simply blocking everything straight out, work with the government to ensure both sides have a representation.

So cast your vote for the know-nothing, do-nothing party.

Oh my...

"Her history is far from being over, I’d like to answer that question in another 15 year from now. I think she’s going to go down at a minimum as a great senator. I think she is a great wife to a president and I think Bill Clinton was a great president. … Hillary Clinton is a great woman and a good woman."

"I thought they roughed her up pretty good [in the 2008 campaign]. I think she’s a wonderful woman. I think she’s a little bit misunderstood. You know, Hillary’s a very smart woman, a very tough woman, that’s fine … but she’s also a very nice person. … I thought she was roughed up. … I’m not knocking the other side, you know, you want to win a battle so if it gets a little bit nasty it is politics and politics is a tough game, but I thought she was perhaps unnecessarily roughed up."

--Donald Trump, 2008

A mite bit late, don't you think ? It's her time ! Get used to it guys ! "Madame President" ! She will win by 10 - 15 points. And, by the way Mr. Trump, "Nasty women vote. " ! ! ! GO HILLARY !

The GOP is too fractured to produce policy so they mostly frame themselves as "defenders of America" to stop Obama and now Clinton. It's easier than producing an alternative to Obamacare.

7 ( +9 / -2 )

Looking forward to Hillary's impeachment in 2018.

Bet you are. The GOP is still flogging the same tired policies that America is on the verge of rejecting for the third straight presidential cycle. All the have left is obstructionism and impotent attempts at impeachment.

7 ( +7 / -0 )

They could flip-flop and rally behind Trump? Oh wait, they've ff'd once already. Well, once more won't do any harm. People of credibility! People like Paul Ryan and Rafael 'Ted' Cruz would stab their own mothers in the back if it furthers their causes.

Phase 1 for Agent Trump is complete: getting Hillary elected President. Phase 2 begins shortly: complete disintegration of the Reb party through irreparable internal division. Phase 3 (the reveal to the moron Rebs): scheduled for mid next year

A lot of people seem to believe it would be better than voting for a criminal and her party.

So? A lot of people think drink-driving won't do any harm.

Looking forward to Hillary's impeachment in 2018.

I imagine she'll actually have to be at least put on trial and preferably found guilty of something before anything like that can happen, don't you? Or is that some silly little procedural issue that the Republicans don't need to worry about, assuming they even control Congress after this election? Just a thought.

Wolfpack: Looking forward to Hillary's impeachment in 2018.

And if that doesn't work you can go for Impeachment 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022, 2023...

Besides, Clinton's done nothing but skate through the fake GOP hearings so far. But I suppose another investigation is easier than a votable immigration plan.

Get a few hundred hillbillies together, give them impressive looking badges, have them conduct exit polls where they promise to give accurate numbers, then use it to decide if there is any election rigging going on.

The GOP 2016.

Actually you've got it backwards - she'd have to be impeached before she could be put on trial.

Well, I knew there was a trial involved at some point in the proceedings but no one's talking about that happening. No one who matters with an opinion worth listening to, that is.

Republicans true to form: "If we don't win, we'll say NO to whatever you propose, no matter what!"

With these cowards it's never the good of the people or the nation, it's the good of themselves and how to save their skin. Period. They are promising to do this to supporters solely to win votes after Trump has shattered the party, without even hearing anything to be proposed to begin with.

Well done, GOP. Proving again you guys can never lower the bar far enough for yourselves.

4 ( +5 / -1 )

Thanks to so many hyper Trump surrogates, Clinton has a chance for the WS, Senate and maybe even the House, although that might be harder to do.

Thanks surrogates! Without your tireless inhumanity and twisted reality would the general public not be so threatened to depose the GOP.

The best part is that the GOP wanted Trump to happen and they're getting their just desserts!

Which is the reason for the Trump revolution.

“Never let yourself be persuaded that any one Great Man, any one leader, is necessary to the salvation of America. When America consists of one leader and 158 million followers, it will no longer be America.”

Bunch of petty losers. They decide things just for the sake of it. What a sad position the GOP is in.

You guys tried that with Bill. How did that go?

The best thing to happen is for the Regressive loser crowd to get swept out. They pick a sociopath for their leader and then, true to form, blame others for their pick. Honestly the republican party is the equivalent of a cranky four year old.

They should block her, she is toast. A bland lady indeed.

They should block her no more than Trump should be blocked if he is president.

That is to say, not block absolutely everything and anything out of principle, like they've done with Obama, but rather pick and choose battles for when the decisions made truly are not in the interests of the people.

Your quote above is saying block her because she is who she is. That's not in the best interests of the people, that's bitterness that the people don't agree with you. Such a stance is for poor losers, and not in the best interests of the country at all.

Hilarious!

Mother Jones (that left-wing rag!) has a bit of schadenfreude for Obama (that left-wing Muslim socialist!) and us long-suffering liberals. Seems GOP candidates as far right as Darrel Issa ('scuse me - gotta wash my hands after typing that name ... okay, back now) are trying to hitch their wagons to Obama's popularity train, but he'll have none of it. Issa! - the man who would have rather chewed off his own arm rather than being photographed with Obama not so long ago is now pumping out ads with photos of that radical Muslim!

So Obama is enjoying his sweet, sweet revenge tour, and good for him. Issa might squeak out a win yet, but nothing like his double-digit victories in the past. Even one-time presidential hopeful (lil' Marco) Rubio is running scared. Winning! Tomorrow, Hillary and Michelle will campaign together in NC. The Dem big guns will be deployed constantly and remorsefully in these last two weeks to zero response from the GOP - all they can do is hide and hope no one notices.

Good times. Enjoy. http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2016/10/barack-obama-revenge-tour-darrell-issa

The election is in the hands of all those that clinton denigrates. The Deplorables, the basement dwellers, the ne'er-do-wells.

Trump is the antithesis to all that Crooked Hillary represents. The Anti-Trumpers here are going apoplectic, and it's amusing.

the GOP is imploding. With any luck they'll cleave off the Tea Party and hate groups and start over

With a Democratic Senate the news of late is the Bernie Sanders will push through his agenda and that can only be good news for the people of the USA, not corporations nor their brown shirts.

Not just an Assange fan but a Michael Moore fan now serrano?

You'd be rallying behind the Devil himself if he was seen with a Trump/Putin bumper sticker...

0 ( +4 / -4 )

Serrano, let's take a look at a continuation of Moore's quote:

Whether Trump means it or not is kind of irrelevant because he’s saying the things to people who are hurting, and that’s why every beaten-down, nameless, forgotten working stiff who used to be part of what was called the middle class loves Trump. He is the human Molotov cocktail that they’ve been waiting for; the human hand grenade that they can legally throw into the system that stole their lives from them.

Moore is wrong in two ways: It is clear to most rational people that Trump does NOT meant "it" (that is, most people have clued into the fact that Trump vocalizes whatever wisps of fragmented ideas happen to be passing through his brain at the moment and calls that "policy"); and a majority of Americans (including, hearteningly, a large majority of younger voters) have much more respect for the stability that tradition and continuation provide to American society than Trump does himself.

The "forgotten working stiff" does need to be much better considered, but today, these "stiffs" are more likely to be working in industries closely meshed with global society. When was the last time you heard a young person pine to work in a textile mill or a coal mine?

The problems facing the American middle class are not unique to America, and fortunately, most Americans recognize this. Walling off America is not the way to the future. Trump's "Amerexit" will be decisively rejected. For this, I am proud of my country.

So I guess Clinton supporters are having a major identity crisis....

Not even remotely.

The idea of an anti-establishment candidate is appealing. The problem is that Trump is not that candidate - Trump IS the establishment, and on top of that, he's shown himself to be a person of deplorable beliefs and actions. Hardly presidential material, and for that matter, not even someone most people would want to work for.

On a different note, I'm glad to see you've finally given up on your nonsense about the voting machines.

WikiLeaks reveals fears and frustrations inside Clinton world

On the day the news broke that Hillary Clinton had used a private email account as secretary of state, the man who would soon be named to chair her presidential campaign fired off a note of distress, venting frustration about some of Clinton’s closest aides.

“Speaking of transparency, our friends Kendall, Cheryl and Phillipe sure weren’t forthcoming on the facts here,” John Podesta complained in the March 2015 note, referring to Clinton’s personal lawyer, David Kendall, as well as former State Department staffers Cheryl Mills and Philippe Reines.

“Why didn’t they get this stuff out like 18 months ago? So crazy,” replied Neera Tanden, a longtime Podesta friend who also has worked for Clinton. Then, answering her own question, Tanden wrote again: “I guess I know the answer. They wanted to get away with it.”
