Attention span of the American people - a perspective

In 2007 / 2008 Obama kicked Kardashian, McCain and Palin all in search trends.

For the last 12 months Trump is the only one breaking through the Kardashians. The goal on our side is to get the attention of the American people generally.

Hillary and Bernie have different paths to get the job done and have some fundamental differences on what can really be achieved. I would peg Hillary for being a little more on the side of serving her own interests over mine and peg Bernie for being a little more concerned with my interests than his. A lot of people disagree with me on Hillary and I'm cool with that. But the bottom line is either candidate WILL serve the American people on some level. You can bet your last dime that no one in the RNC gives a tinker's damn about anyone but themselves.

1. My own (non-scientific) N = 1 poll... my Hill-bot sister...

She's now following through with searching the stuff I hand feed her. Tried to do this with the pdf file that came out last evening before the debate. She's 68 and I'm 62. Her technological limitations means that she isn't curious to search something, but more likely to read something served up to her like a blue plate special.

I wonder if she followed through and read the damned thing?

3. Do you have to refer to Hillary supporters as Hill-bots?

 

Don't you think that's a bit disrespectful?

4. How kind have you been, Cali_Democrat?

Why don't you suggest a name and I'll search your history, meanwhile.

It shouldn't be too difficult.

7. What did I say that was racist?

 

Bernie said that we wants to target Trump voters.

How is what I said racist?

You were agreeing with the OP's -

9. Your words:

 

Try not to make racist remarks, then


What racist remarks did I say?

Trump voters are overwhelmingly white. Trump has turned off most minorities with his racist rhetoric.

Bernie said he wanted to reach out to them.

Pointing out that fact is not racist.

I never made a racist remark.

You really are reaching.

10. I wouldn't say it was reaching...

I would say we were already there.

I can understand you wanting to deny that, though.

I think you can read the statement you agreed with.

Unless you, aahhhmmmm... What's the matter? It's not racist if you agree with a racist statement?

Shame on THAT!

14. How ridiculous is your logic?

This might explain a lot. I guess I hit a nerve.

Do you want me to look further into more statements? That way, I can open up some more opportunities for you to word smith what you're willing to support and what you conveniently do not wish to be seen to support.

Your choice.

You tried to play gotcha, but you ended up looking ridiculous.

This is perhaps the worst gotcha in the history of DU.

2. I read that a politician kicked out for serious scandal

should plan on approximately 5 years out of office. Minor scandal less, pedophiles should plan on a new career.
