Believe me, nothing makes me happier than seeing someone like Trump running in the Rep primary. Reps abandoned fiscal conservatism, along with just allowing crazy religious dogma into the party, and are reaping the benefits of having to start an election cycle pandering to their base. I feel bad in a way, because 'We'll give you free shit!' is so effective, it's hard to be the adult in the room vs the Dems, but that's what the Reps are in theory supposed to be. When you fail year after year, decade after decade, at what your role is supposed to be, it eventually starts to erode your base (and the base is eroding anyways, because of 'It's free!' loss/indoctrination).

The Rep party really needed to have a burn it to the ground moment when Bush II left, they've just prolonged the inevitable and it's leading to Trump being their candidate. So be it. (that Trump has some good ideas/pays lip service to them, all the better)

If by some miracle Dems actually grow a 3rd brain cell and rub all three together at once (basically an impossibility, but, they're supposed to be creative, so there's a chance) and nominate Bernie, that would be amazing. I know lifelong Reps who have zero problem (so far) voting for Trump but if Bernie is nominated are a lock for him. The electorate is looking for someone who is genuine and not fake, which is why Trump is actually doing so well. Billary? Her own party doesn't like her (except for the party jizz slurpers), she's about as far from not fake and genuine as one could get. A very interesting election!
I dunno, Bernie is what the Dems most hate - a straight white man. I just don't see them getting behind him as much as with Hillary, and in the South and Midwest, tons of people are put off because he admits to being a socialist. That's a naughty word.

Unfortunately the Republican Party gave up on fiscal responsibility because the American people gave up on fiscal responsibility. Kasich was one of the principle architects of the 1995 fiscal responsibility, bringing Clinton to bay despite vetos and the gnashing of the media's collective teeth. He's also been a very good governor. Yet he's getting absolutely nowhere. We've divided into two warring camps in America, one that wants free loot and their political enemies punished, and one that just wants their political enemies punished. sadly Kasich would win damned near every GOP primary from here on out if he had a credible path to banning gay marriage. We may speak of our desire for limited government, but where the rubber meets the road we just want that massive, all-powerful federal government doing OUR bidding.

Rofl if you think she believes any of that. Look at her actions. Look what happened with the bankruptcy reform bill when she became a senator. She is a disaster. Most informed people think she is just staying in the race long enough to give her electoral college votes to someone else when she is indicted. Yeah, Obama will likely pardon her... So what.
And now, true desperation-

Informed people figure Hillary's chances of being indicted are so small as to be right wing fantasy.

But what's going to happen with months of Rep party finally throwing their support behind Trump? So far it's been the Dem party unofficially endorsing Billary, Bernie trying to get them to come back to non-shill land and vote for a real Dem, and Trump battling out with every Rep.
You're about to see Chucky. It's beginning now. Can you hear the ground opening up around RNC Headquarters in Washington DC?

Let's see then, she had no idea how email works, that she was taking documents from a secure source and making them not secure? http://i.imgur.com/XoEdVlO.jpg
Still desperate. That was about prepared talking points for a diplomatic meeting. It never actually happened that way & the talking points were revealed at the meeting as intended. Yep, the SoS can do stuff like that, order their own prepared talking points to become non-classified information. Anything else is absurdity.

No. She is not the classification authority. The document originator designates a classification authority contained in a source document.
But it IS her responsibility to ensure all information she uses and controls is marked appropriately, as is the same for any govt employee that uses classified material.
Everyone who generates classified information is responsible for classifying it at the appropriate level. If you create an email that contains potentially classified information, it is your duty to mark it properly. Likewise, if you receive an improperly marked email, it is also your duty to report it.

Congrats! Hillary wins by a landslide all super Tuesday states!.
Very interesting. What crystal ball told you that? I'm curious, so that I never use that flawed ball. It seems quite flawed. Sanders is polling to win at least two states today (not all states have recent polls).

I don't think you know what a nonpaper is. There is nothing controversial about that email.
He knows he's here to fling poo at Hillary, even desiccated turds that can't possibly stick.

As we've seen, Bernie's candidacy has served as a venue for a lot of concern trolling from people who aren't who they represent themselves to be. It's easy to spot because they spend more time tearing down Hillary than building Bernie up.

Which is intended to disparage Bernie not at all. If he's the candidate my fellow Democrats choose I'll support him wholeheartedly.

No, I'm not here to fling poo or shill, unlike some. Hillary is a terrible candidate. She wins states that will probably be taken by the Republicans int he general and loses in Democrat strongholds.

Wouldn't that actually mean she was a strong general election candidate? You don't need to do super well in Democratic strongholds because you're going to win them anyway. Someone that does better in states that aren't already locks for you is a preferable candidate.

Is this the start of a snowball?
http://www.bbc.com/news/election-us-2016-35689439

The GOP is starting to lash out against Trump.
We'll see, but I don't think so. Who are they going to get to run against Billary? Cruz? LOL, he's like Gore, unlikeable and dull. Rubio? While he will get some more Latino vote, too young and lacks the BS skills for the sheeple that Bummer had/has, he'll get dominated by professional BS artist Team Billary.

Reps only chance is Trump. Actually, I'm surprised they didn't pull Romney out, dust him off, and run him. He was WhiteOBummer in the last election, if people are happy with Bummer you'd think they'd much prefer Romney over Billary.

Pure bullshit. The only marginally blue state primaries/caucuses held so far have been New Hampshire where Bernie was the obvious home town favorite & Iowa which was basically a draw.

Hillary, bringing her experience as SoS to the table:

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/02/28/us/politics/hillary-clinton-libya.html

Hillary is incompetent, crooked, or both. Not that Jhhnn would ever believe she's anything less than a demigod. Of course she was easily fooled by Bush, the dumbest president we've ever had, so there's that...
Not sure that's really going to hurt her though. For one thing, it was still Obama's decision; she might have advocated for something stupid (given our experience in Iraq anyway) but he's the one who pulled the trigger. For another, her major opponent will be the Republican nominee - Sanders is merely a speed bump - and Republicans are also known for making stupid foreign policy decisions in the Middle East. Might be pretty much a wash in the general.

LOL, yeah, I'm sure we won't forget the .com crash or the housing crash or GATT or NAFTA or Bill debating the meaning of is or Bill not taking out Osama or (I mean, what else, it's been so long since Slick Willy was POTUS it's hard to remember what really happened vs the stories Dems repeatedly tell each other)...
I know right? It's like how the 80s were the worst years for nearly 90% of the people in this country, and certainly a harbinger of shitty things to come; yet now 100% of conservatives seem to convince themselves that those years were the best period in history for any civilized republic.

rose-covered glasses, indeed.

You spend more time tearing down Republicans than building Hillary up. I guess you aren't who you say you are.
