    Granted, she may be a bigger crook than, say, Bernie Sanders who would redistribute what he stole (lord knows she's a bigger crook than most), but fercrissake she wouldn't govern like Reagan.
    Somehow I don't think the characterization of Goldwater, Nixon and Reagan as the three dystopian ideological giants of the party is accurate. That simply serves to nail down the feet of a dynamic that could be characterized far, far differently.

And I think it's funny if anyone thinks that Hillary had anything to do with scheduling an event like this.

    She sure misses a lot of things JM. But that's alright.....some always come back around. Now all are seeing her true colors.



    As Hillary’s Numbers Dip, Benghazi Rises As an Issue.....


    There was a ton of bad news for Hillary Clinton in two new polls that put the former Secretary of State’s favorability deeper into negative territory amid harsh voter assessments of her personality – particularly her trustworthiness. When asked by CNN/ORC if Clinton was honest and trustworthy, only 42 percent of respondents said yes while 57 percent said no. That was down from 50/49 percent in March and 56/43 percent in March 2014.

    Clinton’s favorability ratings are also the lowest in a Washington Post-ABC News poll since April 2008 when she first sought the Democratic presidential nomination. Today, just 41 percent of Americans say she is honest and trustworthy, in contrast to 52 percent who said she is not. That represents a startling 22 percentage point swing in the past year, according to The Washington Post.

    Half of the people surveyed for the Washington Post-ABC news poll said they disapprove of the way Clinton is handling questions about Benghazi and 55 percent said they consider the issue to be fair game in next year’s election......snip~

    right ... and they're on a mission so if that means screw the kids (metaphorically) then so be it.
    and ... her team are the ones who told her to spew that hate about vote suppression to a black crowd and she went out and did it.
    Better never than late.

    Yeah, if the goal is to have a presser on a playground then kicking out the kids seems... counter productive.

    Greetings, bubba.

    I was discussing Hillary's campaign with my brothers, who are solid Dems, and their comments were interesting. They do not agree that her team is doing the right thing by having her bring racism into the picture, and they wondered why Bill isn't taking a more active roll in her campaign - he wouldn't have made the missteps she is making, in their opinion. They were literally shaking their heads in confusion at what they're seeing.

    Bottom line, they'll still vote for her.

    I've never said she's not responsible for running her campaign. If it is run poorly it reflects her because she's the candidate. I'm just saying you'd have to be crazy if you think she was the person that actually made the plans and said "yeah, kick those kids out I want that park."

    For all we know they called the park and said we'd love to have an event on this weekend is anything important scheduled and the park said "nothing important, we can reschedule it."

    But I agree, it's a silly move on her campaigns part.

    I think it is pretty obvious that Hillary wants all the credit for the campaign and is actively managing Bill's involvement. I think she still operates on the false assumption that her best and most valuable asset is not her husband.

    Greetings, countryboy.

    They'll definitely vote Dem, IMO, and they do recall the Clinton years as a time when their businesses had a lot of work - when I have pointed out that they sure seemed to be awfully busy making money during the Bush years, too, I get a "yeah, but..." response. They haven't been too happy with the lack of work during the Obama years, though - complaining that "my phone just isn't ringing these days," but they are loyal Dems, I'll give them that! Perhaps as time goes by, there will be other Dem candidates they will look at, but who knows? "It seems it's a kind of a "better the devil you know" thing with them, but not necessarily her, but rather their recall of the Bill years. That's probably why they wonder why Bill isn't stepping in!
