    You know Killary’s in real trouble when HuffPo publishes this, and it isn’t some blogger op-ed it’s main site by their Global Editorial Director and two other contributors.


    Why Hillary Lost: A Premature Obit

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/why-hillary-clinton-lost_us_57dc4bece4b04a1497b491b6

    On the high, crenelated ramparts of Castle Clinton, a chill breeze is stirring ― a faint but gnawing sense that the White Walkers are coming, wearing “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN” baseball caps on their skinless noggins.

    If Donald Trump does sack the fortress, no one who lost the battle will want to admit it was Hillary Clinton’s fault. It will have had nothing to do with, say, “transparency” or calling bearded villagers “deplorables” or the Iraq War vote or the simple fact that middle-of-the-road Clintonism ran out of gas as a public philosophy.

    No, other individuals, groups and forces will have to be blamed. In fact, they already are, pre-emptively. If Trump wins, we’re all going to be too busy moving to Canada to read the postmortems (or write them), so we offer them to you now:

    Sounds more like a doom and gloom piece to motivate the troops so the prediction isn't self fulfilling.

    That's incredible weak and cheap clickbait "journalism". Pretty sad if that's already accounted for something worth debating over.

    I mean you actually quote the whole piece, riding the tired GoT theme no less (because they won a helluva lot of Emmys I guess, missing only the "10 Reasons Why"

    "...
    2.) THE RUSSIANS ARE COMING
    Actually, they arrived long ago and got into her phone.

    3.) MILLENNIALS
    Ugh. F**cking idealists, right?"

    And so on, pretty pathetic to publish stuff like that. But I guess it sells somehow. *shakes head and fist*

    No one is moving to Canada, we're going to build a wall. We have enough liberals spending our government poor as it is.

    Yes, hackers have arrived long ago. http://www.zdnet.com/article/does-m...e-with-china-and-russia-pose-a-security-risk/

    And weren't our forefathers like idealists too or something? They had a lot of good things to say, even if imperect in some ways, they were still largely progressive given the attitudes of the era in which they lived.

    Gotta love the uber liberal Hillary sheep reporters already trying to put the blame on millenials instead of their terrible lying **** bag of a candidate and their moron supporters who think nominating her was a good idea.

    These people make their own bed.

    Well, nothing says fiscal responsibility like building something you don't need for 20 billion bucks.

    HuffPo is one step below the National Enquirer (which actually breaks a story from time to time.)

    I believe that word has meaning and adds context.

    So....should we have nominated the guy who only more recently became a Democrat (solely for political expediency)? Or should we have elected the guy from MD who was getting no traction at all and has the personality of a wet noodle? Or maybe you think we should have picked Jim Webb who had even less traction and just looked angry and whiny that he wasn't getting enough questions?

    I'm pretty sure if Hillary were to lose it would have something to do with millions of gullible Americans believing that a racist, misogynist, mentally unstable peacock billionaire con man with the temperament of a small child would make a good leader.

    No it's not. It is factual. He didn't run as an Independent.

    she is tied with him, Hillary had to rig the DNC elections to beat a decrepit socialist who could not even comb his hair, that is how bad hillary is.

    You're like the old Life cereal commercial. "He won't like it, he hates everything."

    I'm going to start calling you Mikey.

    when your morals/values/ethics don't change based on that magic "R" or "D" then you get accused of hating everything :rolleyes:

    Not so fast....

    Although if her numbers are sinking, what would account for that? Pneumonia? Boring Trump using TelePrompTer (something he once condemned). I don't see much new info from either candidate so what would account for this perceived drop?

    No...that's not it at all.

    You have had a history this election of liking a candidate, only to hate them later. You have turned on all of them. Like I said...you hate everything. :D

    Still it was a great commercial. Plus you know you'll love the cereal.

    Anyway it was obvious Mikey was gonna get stuck with eating it. Life lesson... ;)

    completely aware we are getting stuck with trump or clinton, still does NOT mean I have to support either one. I am happy voting for Pedro this coming election :D

    the Netherlands sound interesting to me, so does Iceland. I have a buddy trekking through Europe right now, says he will settle in Spain and let me know just how things are over there.
