Hillary and Bernie

How Far Left Has the Dem Base Gone?

On Saturday night in Nevada, Hillary Clinton restored some order to the Democratic presidential race. Though polls were indicating that the contest with Bernie Sanders might be a tossup after Clinton lost a big lead in recent months, the former secretary of state won the caucus easily 53 to 47 percent. Granted, the turnout was minuscule even for a caucus state with less than 12,000 people showing up to vote. That doesn’t say much for the process or the party, but the main thing is that Clinton avoided another upset at the hands of the 74-year-old Vermont socialist. With what is anticipated to be an easy victory in South Carolina coming up this weekend, the sense of panic among the Democratic Party establishment about Clinton losing a the nomination to what is essentially a protest candidate has abated.

    Let the crazy third of America kill each other over Hillary and Sanders.
    While nobody else is looking, Trump is tearing huge chunks of flesh out of the Democrat Party that have not been done since 1980 when the Reagan Democrats crossed over and handed Jimmy Carter his walking papers.
    This is a very exciting year and anyone not paying serious attention to American politics is missing the most unmanaged social revolution in over a hundred years.

    Right now, turn on his interview with Sean Hannity (on Fox) in Las Vegas.
    So. Much.Truth. Being. Spoken.

    Anybody that claims Trump has ‘peaked’ is just flat-out lying, or so delusional that they should be medicated and institutionalized.

        I hope I’m right. I had better be right.
        I suspect that my mortal existence depends on my being right.

        I’m quite sure that when the scheduled debate date comes up, Clinton will say, “Not tonight, I have a headache”. Probably from another one of her drunken face plants.

      An American Revolution. South American.

    The Democratic race is between a sleazeball and a radical. If Hillary had not soiled herself with serial lawbreaking, Bernie would be just a fringe curiosity.

  • Clausewitz

    The Leftist News outlets in the US stating that, “Trump is the only (R) candidate who has no way of ever beating Hillary” means only one thing. They know that Trumps would steamroller Shrillery into oblivion, and I’m a Cruz supporter, not a Trump supporter.

    Low turnout = Clinton’s union thugs win.

    A third of working age Americans are unemployed. Part of this is no doubt the result of decades of off-shoring jobs. A reliably predictable result is also that those now unemployed look to maximize their income by getting free stuff. There are a lot of people riding the wagon. Very few pulling it.

    Now if only we could hold to their promise all the people who super pinky swear to leave the US if Trump wins.

      Please no, most of them have said they would come to Canada and we have a enough nuts and loosers of our own.
