Salon: Hillary Clinton just can’t win

Salon: Hillary Clinton just can’t win: Democrats need to accept that only Bernie Sanders can defeat the GOP: Bernie Sanders will become our next president and it should come as no surprise to people actually paying attention

We’ve tended to focus here on the fact that the GOP do not represent the working American anymore.  They represent the big donors who will grow superrich on low paid immigrant labour, and then – after automation – decamp financially, leaving the burden for all others. (See, for example, the flawless ironing machine.)

But the Dems have troubles enough of their own:

After all, it’s difficult to trust a politician who completely fabricated a story about being fired upon by snipers. Like POLITIFACT states, “it’s hard to understand how she could err on something so significant as whether she did or didn’t dodge sniper bullets.”

71% of men and 64% of women find Clinton “not honest and trustworthy.”

True, and friends don’t say those things about friends. So …

Sanders doesn’t represent the working American either. He represents the junior jackboots of Asshat U (to whom he would give free tuition) and the growing number of people not really needed in the workforce, whose lives at present and for the foreseeable future must revolve around dependence on government, probably via the minder jobs that will sop up the asshats.

I forecast Sanders to win – given present data – because the numbers of these voters are growing, and the numbers of middle and working class Americans are shrinking. But we’ll see.

  • Well I would never rely on Salon to predict anything however they may signal the growing awareness that HRC is a lying no good bitch.

    • It’s not the prediction though; it’s the optics that that’s the one they’d make. Apparently, being 1st WOMAN prez is kind of tarnished if it’s her. (?)

    or Hill should quit before being arrested

    • Alain

      I doubt she will ever be arrested.

    Bernie has gotten this far only because his opponent has proven herself ethically unworthy of the White House and the Democrats otherwise have a paucity of executive talent.

    I think a lot of people would rather vote anything over Hillary. I do know a few feminists who will vote for her because she’s a women. I think she wlll end up as the democratic candidate simply because the super delegate system is stacked in her favor.

    The Burnouts are realizing that they will loose even if they take every state since the super delegates have 90% pledged for Hillary. In Hillary’s defense she knows that her time is running out. She either has to become president before they arrest her and she needs Obama’s help to keep the FBI off her back till then. A Bernie nomination would mean jail time.

    Now I think Obama is going to keep the FBI at bay until the primary is almost over and Hillary can taste the nomination then he will send the FBI in to take her.

      Obama corresponded with Hillary on her unprotected server, so he knew of her breach and was therefore negligent and careless himself. Should he pardon her, she would still be subject to impeachment should she be elected and the Republicans controlled Congress.

      • Exile1981

        I don’t think the current republican congress has the guts to impeach her otherwise Obama would be long gone. Also if she is pardoned then congress can’t impeach her for the same crime.

    I would sure hate to be a young person voting in the USA. What a dismal choice.
    I still say that Sanders wins .
    Everybody loses.

  • kkruger71

    All I can really say for sure is with either Sanders or Clinton winning the Democrat nomination, the election is the Republicans to lose. If they are unable to win against either of those two, America as we know it is past the tipping point and all that can be done is either slow don or speed up its destruction.

    I think we need Billy-Bob’s assessment of this situation.
