    No wonder there is violence in this country. Everyone is mad as hell. Il Douche’s followers, Bernie’s fans, Oregon militia, NRA and its members, etc.

    The President has presented a strong, fiscally-responsible plan to create good-paying jobs, expand opportunity and increase the paychecks of hard-working American families. While Republicans cling to a narrow, special-interests-first program for our future, Democrats will stand with the President’s vision for a new American era of prosperity, opportunity and ambition.”

    This is some really bad press. Somebody needs to get a grip here!

      This is the actual quote:

      “Many of these are first-time voters and Senator Sanders’ message resonates with the younger generation because of the promises that he is making,” said Rep. G.K. Butterfield (D-N.C.), chairman of the CBC. “But Mrs. Clinton and others are going to challenge the message by suggesting that it is unrealistic to believe that we can accomplish all of the things that Senator Sanders proposes.”

      “They need to understand that when a candidate presents a message, you’ve got to pierce the message to determine whether or not it’s realistic, given the political climate that we live in,” Butterfield said. “It’s not a negative, it’s not an aspersion on the new voter. It’s the fact that many of them are inexperienced and have not gone through a presidential election cycle before.”

      Some of these writers like to stir the senses but again I say that her advocates have to recognize that this is how the media is going to present things to the public. He took a line out of that article and presents it as a smite on young voters. Her people need to catch up!!!!

    Just found out one of my sister-in-laws must be a Bernie supporter since she liked a Bernie ad on Facebook.😦 Her husband, my brother, is a gun loving GOP advocate and it would not surprise me if he were supporting Trump. My other brother has been a long time Ron Paul fan and a strict Constitutionalist. I was surprised he is for Bernie, but that beats a GOP candidate. He would NEVER support Hillary as he believes every single conspiracy theory ever said about the Clintons. Now you know why I need all of you!

      Here for you, Obama Grandmama. Hopefully, we’ll get the job done in November and elect a President who will continue President Obama’s stunningly great legacy. We can do it!! Or as President Obama used to say, “Yes we can!”

        I don’t think so. i think his producers determine “with” him who will be on his show. I think he’s just being fair. I’m sure he supports HRC.

          Stephanie Miller gets lots of calls from Bernie supporters, and she has to constantly explain that she is for HRC but she will vote for Bernie if he is the nominee. Tom Hartman and all of the PL are supporting BS, knowing that he will not be able to get any of his promises done. They are intelligent folks and know the process, but they still support BS.

          • February 10, 2016 at 8:30 pm

            I was thinking something similar, COS.

            There are a number of “intellectuals” who support BS. I am surprised that they aren’t asking the questions about how he plans to accomplish his proposals and what it will entail. Either that or that they are satisfied with the answers. Then again, maybe they don’t care about that. Maybe the attraction is that Bernie is a conduit for getting out a message; for generating discussion on a pet issue. Beyond that, his usefulness will expire.

    Now this is an interesting comment….

    the context is about folks who voted for things in the 90s that they may not have voted for today…

      One of my daughter-in-laws lets out audible horror sounds when she hears about no car seats for kids, kids waiting in the car when a parent went in a store, putting babies to bed on their stomachs, etcetera, etcetera. She cannot seem to grasp that things were different then when my kids were young and you were not a bad parent by not knowing these future improved behaviors. Is it a coincidence that she decided to support Bernie really early on by being totally inspired by him? No real deep thinking, mostly an emotional response. Maybe she represents a typical far left Bernie supporter.

    • February 10, 2016 at 8:06 pm

      FLOTUS let me thank you for agreeing to make this journey with POTUS. I wish I could tell FLOTUS these few words, I’m sure it was not easy for you, Malia, and Sasha, but thank you for agreeing to let your husband run for President. POTUS said he would not have run if you had said no, Thank You.

    What would BernieBros do if Warren endorsed Hillary

        Interesting…

        However, if you want to know what the BernieBros would do, you need only read the comments on this tweet. What amazes me about the Bernie fans is how they seem to each project their own mythical desires for the perfect savior onto him. So many attribute positions to him that he has never taken or has voted against and no matter what evidence to the contrary is presented, they just keep believing in their own version of him or, if they do accept votes he’s taken or choices he’s made as fact, they brush them off. It’s o.k. to choose to support him instead of HRC, but I wish I didn’t see so much denial and fantasy in his supporters.

    Just go a reminder on facebook — I downloaded the form in 2011 and still haven’t completed and mailed them. Moving to the top of my “To Do” list!

    “Just a thought…
    There are just 10 months left in President Obama’s term. If you have a family member that is a deceased veteran of the military this is your last opportunity to have a Presidential Memorial Certificate signed by our first African American president. I just got off the phone checking the status of my request for certificates for my 2nd great-grandfather’s service in the Civil War. It’s highly symbolic and extremely important to me to have these signed by President Obama. Here’s the link:”

      The narrator at the live feed seems to be a supporter of the rebels. He mentioned something about David calling him to advise him of the FBI’s actions, and while giving the number and encouraging his listeners to call the FBI in Portland he’s also reminding them to keep their convo civil. Why would he be encouraging people to call right now if he knows the local bureau is involved in sensitive actions? What’s his intent?

        You know, I suspect POTUS is simply joking around about his daughters and dating. It’s a subject on which most parents/fathers would agree and is a good way to remind people that he’s “just a father” like others. IMO it’s a nice ‘ice-breaker’.

      I was reading some comments where some haters I’m sure ask were was the white kids when the First Lady and those kids were on Colbert Show after the football game? Then someone ask about the white kids when the First Lady had the Black history program honoring dancing? Where are the white kids? Now I had to ask did these same people ask were was the black actors when the Oscars were nominated? I wanted these idiots to know that for so long I have ask that question, where are the black kids? These are those people way of calling FLOTUS racists, but when FLOTUS have other events and a bunch of white kids are around, these same people manage to miss that.

        Not so sure about Trump not picking Ben. I am one that thinks Trump is crazy like a fox. He says unconventional things he knows will get him airtime and garner favor among racists etc. Trump may decide to walk back his problem areas in the General Election by running either an AA or a Woman as VP. (Or Omarosa) Then he would say see I am not racist or I am not a woman hater.

      Donna, this is like trying to teach someone like SP foreign policy. The chairman of the Democratic party in South Carolina said that Sanders has a long way to go to close that gap for black voters in SC; especially black middle age women.

    Several reports and video on twitter of Sanders staff asking out of staters to use campaign office as address to register to vote. This is clearly illegal.

    I’ve just been listening to live feed of the wildlife refuge terrorists. Those people are totally nuts! Some outsiders on the line trying to talk them into surrendering but some just want to die in a shootout blaze of glory.
