    To be honest with what we have running right now, I'd be happy if Uncle Joe joined. At least that guy has charisma.

    As hard as it may be to believe, I think the Democrats are going to be unified as **** by mid-summer. You can chalk that up to Donny. I think Donny has burned too many bridges in the party and those withholding support will never give it.

    I've been thinking this for the last few weeks now since Donny showed he wasn't going to "pivot" and start acting Presidential now that he has the nomination.

    It's funny, because a competent, moderate Republican (like a McCain or Kasich) would mop the floor with Hillary. But Trump is too bat **** crazy. Lots of people are going to hold their noses and vote for Hillary just to keep Trump as far away from the Oval Office as possible.

    Yup. I'm already prepared for 2020 to be a Republican wipeout that boots a one-term Hillary.

    McConnell said the same thing about Obama. Look what happened.

    Additionally, with 2020 being a census and redistricting year, you may find the political demographics a lot different than they are today.

    One can only hope that the Republicans grow a brain and get rid of the extreme right bible thumping looney toons by then. If that happens then maybe they'll have a shot.

    Happy to be wrong. Time and events can change things, but Hillary is a horrible candidate/campaigner. She's just not very good at it. Plus 12th year fatigue, which Obama didn't have.

    And, to flip the story a bit, had the Democrats insisted on someone other than a Clinton, they'd be crushing Trump in the polls and aiming for likely victories in the House and Senate.

    I don't get it, where does the "meme" inspired quote come from?

    If Obama was holding Joe's hand this would have been hilarious.

    Things will only continue to be more difficult for Republicans to win a national election.

    1) 2020 will mean four more years of Baby Boomers (the Republican base) dying off. Many more will be too infirm or senile to vote.
    2) The racial demographics will continue to shift out of their favor (less White people).
    3) The Clinton presidency will bring more obstruction.
    4) The oldest Millennials will be 40 years old, gaining social capital/control and mentally unencumbered by the Cold War Red scare, still probably interested in moderate socialism.

    There was a stink in the air yesterday, and the radio soon confirmed it. Obama was in New York City.

    Sorry, whoever smell't it, dealt it.

    Also, too, do you ever intend to graduate third grade?

    Implies something just tweeted was so foolish, moronic, and pointless the person who wrote it should just close their account and walk away in shame.

    I can always tell when Democrats are doing good. The haters start becoming even more desperate than normal. Thank you for being my barometer.

    Think again, Grasshopper.



    I got it from your Lefty hero, Chavez.

    "In a 15-minute address to the annual gathering of international leaders in New York, President Chávez said he could still "smell sulphur" left behind by the "devil", George Bush, who had addressed the chamber 24 hours before."

    "Chávez attacks 'devil' Bush in UN speech"

    McCain would have been a wonderful president if he didn't pander to the Tea Party side of the Republican party to garner the nomination and get stuck with that dumb twit of a bimbo from Alaska.

    If the Clintons move in again, anyone want to place bets on when Bill will end up impregnating a junior staffer?
