    Morning. It is so wonderful to see our sane, intelligent President on the campaign trail. As Trump becomes more and more ominous and unhinged, the Hillary campaign works tirelessly to nail down every vote and her brilliant surrogate–PBO–charms every heart.

    Good morning TOD folks! Thank God P Obama is still here to balance the crazy.

      Not like this…taking a slap at Clinton…still comparing her to Donald Trump…the result of years of smears on the Clinton….

      The other built a campaign on insults and bigoted statements, finally losing any right to be taken seriously with the recent release of a video in which he was heard to brag about his ability to get away with sexually assaulting women.

      There is certainly not a perfect choice but, at this point, the only candidate who comes close to being qualified and fit for the post is Hillary Clinton.

        “Finally losing any right to be taken seriously. Right there – in other words “He can lie and smear fellow Republicans and threaten black people and Muslim people; he can have a long record of failed businesses, bankruptcies, and law suits; he can be indicted in a rape of a 13 year old, but now I’ve finally decided to draw the line”. Makes me sick. Also “comes close to being qualified and fit…” Seriously?? Comes close??? Point out someone, anyone, who comes closer!

        In the WI Poll I was just reading the ONLY fail for Hillary was honesty. Years of being attacked – plus Trump’s continual attacks play a massive part in this. How can anyone be “ready on day 1”, “well qualified”, “have good rapport with other countries” and then be thought by a majority to be dishonest. That liberal media – never stops saying it.

  11. October 12, 2016 at 9:32 am

    The media has attention deficit disorder… Abd trunp knows this and plays them always…
    A few days ago we were talking about trump abs his vulgar comments…
    Now we are talking about Paul Ryan and wiki leaks…
    I remember in 08 rev weight take for over two weeks every channel in a loop.
    So if the right wing wants to talk about media bias… How about starting there?
    Just saying!

      THIS!!! ( From this piece)

      “Republicans are not shocked; they’re scared,” wrote New York magazine’s Rebecca Traister. “Donald Trump is losing and they are beginning to understand that his loss is going to expose them, not simply to partisan defeat, but as a party that has been covert in its cohesion around the very biases that he makes coarse and plain…. Republicans are not separate from Trump, and he is not distinct from Republican nature or motivation; he is its slightly more unruly twin.”

      Morning everyone:)

    Labor giant SEIU pumps resources into anti-Trump effort

    New data provided to POLITICO shows the GOP nominee with just 17 percent support among unionized service workers.

    http://www.politico.com/story/2016/10/labor-giant-seiu-pumps-resources-into-anti-trump-effort-229649

    Just a few months back, a SEIU person was bemoaning that many of their members were for trump or were at least trump curious. Thank god trump they came to their senses.

    Good morning TOD! I had just about given up on IA, Hillary doesn’t seem to be connecting there, until this last weekend. Regardless of political leanings, most Iowans carry those strong Midwest values and I have a hard time seeing them voting for someone who wants to take the country into the sewer. Also saw a retweet yesterday where someone from IA said this was the first presidential campaign where she had not gotten a single piece of literature, a door knock or a phone call in support of the R nominee. Obviously, no Trump ground game there. So just maybe IA will come to its senses:-)

      Fascinating… I love the way his mind works. He is well informed, well read, and open. I can’t even see the orange man even knowing what the questions mean, much less be able to have an intelligent conversation about AI…

      • October 12, 2016 at 11:25 am

        Yes, you nailed it! The fluency of PBO’s mind, his facility with facts and his enormous imagination are such a thrill to witness. He thinks in an entirely different way – adventurous but grounded. Amazing.

      GE amk.

      Would love to see Darrell Issa booted out next month.

      His CA stretches from the beyond-wealthy OC (and bigoted) enclaves of Corona del Mar, Laguna and Newport Beaches) down to the northern coastal portion of San Diego County, including Camp Pendleton (the county’s largest employer) and Oceanside.

      Because of the unique combination of vast wealth and USMC macho bravado, OC isn’t the best test for Wasserman’s theory (will read later). However, Issa is such a Trumpaloon and OC’s changing demographics could mean (former USMC, Sanders-like [according him] Dem will represent this congressional district).

      From May (before Jun primary for “weak” Dem):

    Republican nominee Donald Trump told a crowd in Florida to go cast their votes on November 28—a full 20 days after Election Day, which is Tuesday, Nov. 8.

    “We’re doing something that’s incredible, it’s a movement,” Trump said. “But if we don’t win, all it is is a little asterisk in history. There’s never been anything like this so go and register, make sure you get out and vote Nov. 28.”

      I don’t know about anyone else but listening to him on LO last night, DT did not sound sober. DT sound like he was either high on drugs or alcohol. There is something wrong with that man, he was not making sense and seemed to be slurring/stumbling over his words. Maybe he was operating on very little or interrupted sleep which can also make people sound goofy.

        Pf, these roaches thrive on ignorance and the willingness of millions of people to accept anything someone tells them, no matter how fact free. With the help of the media, the right wing banged on about Hillary’s deceitfulness for so long, people automatically believe it without proof. We need to go back to basics–teaching people critical thinking skills in our schools and insisting on an unbiased media. I realize it will be harder to achieve this than it would be to launch a manned flight to Mars, but everything this country represents depends on it. Where there’s a national will, there’s a way.

          “the right wing banged on about Hillary’s deceitfulness for so long, people automatically believe it without proof. ” – Trump continues this at EVERY opportunity & the media dutifully report what he says.

          All her endorsements say but …. I am amazed that she continues to pursue her goals despite the years of sh!t being thrown – culminating in an ignorant stalker/abuser screaming his lies to the world.

          Given the massive volumes of communications, the intense searching, the endless enquiries – they have found NOTHING – yet the dimwits believe the hate of the GOP. Very few would ever survive such indepth searching – let alone be the first woman President of the US.

    Here’s a novel idea.. Stop sending emails and don’t put anything on the Internet?

    These Russians have a vested interest in embarrassing America and Hillary Clinton.

    We should actually take this to the UN like we did the Cuban missile crisis abd show the world the proof we have that they are hacking us.

    Only reason I can think of why the US is not doing this?
