Also, yes the POTUS did shake her hand before the last SOTU, and she still behaved like a child during the entirety of the address.

 

I have stated previously that Pelosi acts like spoiled brat.

 

Quite apart from that, however, she's playing a game and not trying to get the job of bettering the lives of the American people done - in my eyes that makes her a worthless scumbag. No shortage of people exactly like that in politics, unfortunately.

She's the Speaker - the position deserves attention, if not the person holding it.

@Cybes

And your comment about the position of Speaker deserving attention, is even more Relevant when referring to the POTUS I would have thought.

During the first address this POTUS gave the proper courtesy to all even though the rot of their behaviour towards him and his position as POTUS was already common practice.

The benefit of the Internet is that if you’re not a fucking dumbarse, and can follow a few links, you can qualify the value of information in opinion columns.

 

This particular author is from a think tank that spends some of its time trying to justify and clean up Venezuela’s image vis-a-vis economic policy. IE they cover for socialist dictators.

 

Now, if you have a problem with my characterisation, do remember that the NRA spends a significant amount of time and money trying to convince people that guns shouldn’t be banned because guns don’t kill people, people kill people.

 

You can window-dress and butt-cover for Bernie all you like. “Bernie’s not a radical”, “blah blah blah”.

 

He is a socialist. Socialism destroys humanity.

She does as she sees she can to resist Trump. Usually quite effectively at least in trimming his wings but she certainly does come across as petulant quite often.

 

Meanwhile it seems Yang's race is run but Klobuchar's may just be beginning.

 

Biden didn't even stick around he's already headed for the next port of call and drumming up the colored vote.  He is right, the first two primaries are in overwhelmingly white states, but as a former VP doing so poorly in the opening rounds must sting.

 

Super Tuesday will likely see the big spills when candidates like Warren will have to decide if to continue.

 

Cheers

It probably does.

There’s bigger problems. If more than two candidates stick beyond Super Tuesday (and remember that Bloomberg enters the picture on Super Tuesday after having spent $200-$300m on advertising in those states) - then it is extremely unlikely that any one candidate gets to the end with the required number of delegates.

 

How do you think the convention goes if a non-Democrat (ie Bernie) is option 1, Buttigieg is option 2 and Bloomberg/Biden are option 3/4 if both stick around?

Yeah,

 

 That's  why this "purest form of democracy" as I once heard it described does not scale well.

 

Bloomberg skipping the first few primaries was probably in his best interests, he'll get a very strong indication of which way the wind is blowing come super Tuesday.

 

If he comes out of the gates in a lead position then I could well see him partnering with Buttigieg or Klobuchar to have one very strong team. If however his results are lacklustre then his race will be over before it starts.

 

It will really depend upon how fast the contenders winnow away. At the moment the ones least likely to are Sanders (no way) Buttigieg (unlikely) Klobuchar (somewhat unlikely) and Warren, who could be fading fast.

 

So although the field is a lot thinner Bloomberg will still be entering into a field with likely too many horses for a clear-cut majority come the convention. Then it gets nasty.

The DNC is going to be utterly fucked. I feel so sorry for Pelosi.

 

Can you imagine having to choose between a centrist candidate who could peel away centrist voters and moderate Republicans, and a presumably popular Sanders who’d do neither but is extremely popular among the white Democrats and pretty much no one else?

There’s an even bigger problem.

 

With approximately, 70% of precincts reporting, Trump has surpassed the New Hampshire Primary vote total of every incumbent President running for re-election over the last four decades.

Hmm,

 

I'd pretty much expect that.

 

He's essentially running uncontested and in the immediate post-impeachment running on a high.

 

That high may rapidly collapse however - he can't help himself, now he's created a furor in Judicial in meddling with the case of Roger Stone. Four protest resignations thus far.

 

I'd think if for no other reason than political near-exhaustion it best suits the Dems to run a seemingly moderate candidate but policies aside we really have no idea how Buttigieg will/would pan out. Notable that Trump has started name calling him - the retarded juvenile must see him as a threat 🙂

 

Cheers

Interesting.

 

Sanders won almost all the big cities. Buttigieg won almost all the small cities and towns.

 

In other words, Buttigieg won all the places a Democrat needs to win to beat Donald Trump, and Sanders won almost none of those.

He actually is "winning the hearts and minds" 🙂

 

Far too early to read much into it however.

Sorry I probably should have clarified. More Republicans turned out to vote in New Hampshire than ever before for the past 4 decades.

Gee, from where I'm standing, it looks amazingly just like socialism is the only thing standing between humanity (oh, and also the whole biosphere) being enslaved and poisoned at the hands of scumbag power-mad capitalist filth. 

 

Must be a trick of the light, I guess

Says a person who has lived and survived in no other existence other than a capitalist society.

I wonder if you really believe the Socialist Elite will look after the biosphere any better ? Do you not see them behaving in just the same way once the positions of " scumbag pwer-madness " is theirs to control ?

And if you actually believe there will be no Socialist Elite ...

Hitler believed the exact same shit about National Socialism.

 

History says no to both socialism and Nazism.

 

There is no way to make either of those save humanity much in the same way as there’s no way to not get electrocuted while licking an open power point.

See, this is why you're on ignore. The bullshit you spew about me is of a piece with your fantasy of reality, immune to any evidence to the contrary. Pretty sure if I busted out a bank statement, it'd be fake news. 

 

Lies, slander, poisonous and divisive filth, that's all you and your shitlord heroes have. 

 

You're a fucken piece of shit, cunt.

Thanks Kimmo.

 

Being hated by jealous losers like you serves as unnecessary but welcome reminder of my fundamental decency.

Contradiction in terms,

If that's directed at my comment, then theory says you are correct.

I'd like to see how you'll respond once that theory is torn up with reality

Enter Bloomberg! A republican pretending to be a Democrat.

 

'Enter'? You're running a week or so slow. 😉

 

Bootyjudge is a Republican in disguise; Bloomberg is a Trump that can speak in full sentences, buying a Dem position because he hates the real Trump.

 

No, really. He's every bit as racist, if not more (quietly rejoined his Whites-only club recently); as sexist; has a large number of sexual assault allegations pending; thinks poor people are an inferior species; and is a NY billionaire.  And he's a mental weakling, attacking Bernie's voters rather than his platform. If they put him up against Trump, Trump will destroy him.

Buttigieg (Maltese: Buttiġieġ [butːɪd͡ʒɪːt͡ʃ]) is a Maltese surname, derived from Sicilian Arabic أبو الدجاج Abu-d-dajāj(i), meaning chicken owner or poulterer (literally, "father of chickens")

 

Yep sounds about right for Buttigieg.

And I don't like Bloomberg much either.

Heheh - Bernie pulled over 17,000 people at the Washington State event.  And all without bussing in pretenders or paying actors.

 

Totally biased presenter here, but it's the only video I can find atm:
