      HI GGail, and everyone at TOD.

      Just wanted to respond to your reply to me, GGail, a few threads back and let you know what happened with the HRC campaign going all automated. I am now one of several people doing the data coordinator/trouble shooting job during all my shifts, helping phone bank people get online and navigate VAN. And also anything else they toss my way. Spent over an hour the other day putting stickers on cards and compiling training manuals. Whatever it takes to get HRC in the WH! Just so great to feel useful. I have several friends who have “moved” to Nevada until 11/9 to help people there. I can’t be away that long, so it is nice to know there are lots of ways here at home for me to help.

      I also wanted to report on a wonderful thing that happens, now, each week at our local HRC office. Two nights each week 8-10 Latinos arrive to phone to Nevada to get out the vote. Many of them speak no English, and it is so wonderful for each of us to walk by the room they are in and to listen to them chattering away in Spanish working to GOTV for Hillary. We all walk around beaming all night long even though some of us can’t say anything more to them than Gracias. This is such an amazing campaign, and I am so proud to be a part of it all.

      Must now head off to bed early as I have a long shift tomorrow followed by a 2 hr training to rest up for. Take care everyone, and thank you all for the photos of POTUS and FLOTUS, of the State Dinner, clips from the Colbert Show, and I’m hoping some tweets and comments on the final debate, which I missed. I’ll try to get caught up in the next few days.

      Hugs to you all, and stay well.

      I felt that whilst he asked rethug talking points, it allowed HRC to (I thought) successfully refute the points. That he allowed HRC space to do so, I thought was very good in addressing the general public. Also Wallace fact checked the Donald a couple of times and I thought Trump was a litlle put out. LOL!!!!!!.

      I’ve noticed this a few times. I am sure its happening all over. Republicans are expressing an expectation that Clinton will institute “Republican orthodoxy” while she has supported the most pragmatic progressive values and forcefully. There’s such a problem of entitlement in the GOP. They have never learned to compromise and to work well with others.

      Hi annieb, my local KTLA 5 news political analyst both said that Trump was more of the same and that Hillary gave solid answers.

  14. October 19, 2016 at 10:52 pm

    I didn’t have the stomach to watch Trump for 90 minutes so I followed it on twitter. Sounds like Trump was his crappy, disgusting self. Hillary was her polished and prepared self, ready to govern. She gets the win! And we don’t ever have to watch that poisonous, toxic mess Trump on the tube ever again.

      Thank you NW for your tireless work. The spate of tweets above is fantastic.
      Hillary won tonight. The world got to see for the third time a very knowledgeable, wise, mature measured person. Trump made two very dangerous and totally unprofessional gesture tonight; Firstly refused to say he will honour the will of the people; and 2) demonized HRC by calling her a criminal. Really terrible. He is signalling to his nutcase supporters. Really really bad.

      Can’t believe that the Trump mentioned (again) his hotel … his beautiful hotel. Can you imagine him being president…He would want all the world leaders to stay at his hotel….that’s why he finished the one in DC hoping he will win!

His saying he will not commit to accepting the results of the election is his death knell. Even the GOP cannot stand behind this and will be held to account for it. And he thinks he is so smart:-)

      A scary thought flashed across my mind when I heard a reporter ask Donald Trump Jr if he himself would ever run for President? He blew the question off, but I had not thought of that horror before. After hearing Jr campaign for his father the thought of a carbon copy running later is beyond my ability to fathom at this time.

      He challenged the legitimacy of the citizenship of the president and these assholes in the media gave him a platform and encouragement to do so. No one should be surprised that he has now done so with this election, especially with all of the whining about a rigged election for weeks.

      HIGHLY recommend this article! Rs are already starting on their meme that anyone other than DT could have beaten her. Sound familiar? How many election cycles will we continue to hear this? In fact, SIXTEEN GOP men could not defeat him to win the nomination. She and her team have performed admirably. AND I would argue the opposite, it would have been much easier for them to take down a standard Republican than Trump. They had to rewrite their playbook to take him out. Kudos to them!

    to anyone but trump could have won liars, this bj post addresses it.

    I think Clinton’s job was much more difficult than simply winning 3 debates against an opponent. She didn’t have an opponent. She faced a shit storm of invective, insults, lies, total bullshit, delusional thinking, and utter nonsense. Countering that was much harder than beating human beings Bernie Sanders and Barack Obama in debates. How do you prepare to debate when your “opponent” will say absolutely anything, no matter how farfetched or untrue. The nastiest presidential candidate in modern political history stands on the stage and calls HRC a “nasty woman.” Facing an unhinged cretin with serious personality disorders and emerging intact is truly amazing. If we didn’t need a president, I’d nominate Clinton to be Trump’s attendant in the asylum.

      I am still annoyed that Chris Wallace’s so called questions on the constitution and the SCOTUS concentrated almost exclusively on the 2nd amendment and abortion. I doubt the orange man has read the constitution and as the above shows he knows nothing about SCOTUS.

      • October 20, 2016 at 8:10 am

        Yeah, me too, but remember the age old rule: IOKIYAR. That’s the rule they have operated under and gotten away with, at least 95% of the time, for many years. A R and a D can both do the same basic act (involving $$ or sex or something else) and I’m betting if one went back and carefully documented all of those, 3 out of 5 times (maybe 4 out of 5), the R ends up paying either no price or a small price whereas the D pays long-term.

        • October 20, 2016 at 8:12 am

          Continued: I’ve always felt one reason for that is that the Dems just don’t ‘fight dirty.’ They don’t have the talking points and a guru like Frank Luntz. And, of course, they don’t have the media with them. So, part of it is the Dems hurting themselves and part it’s the system of corporate media.

            I think Hillary has learned from the continual attacks on Bill and herself. She didn’t “fight dirty” in this debate but she baited him & he walked right into it – every time.

            Thus said, family values were everything when Bill Clinton wandered around – when PBO became the perfect family values President – they didn’t matter any more. Most of it is the myth of the RW divine right to rule.
