Every few days here at DU, OP's about Hillary pop up.

Typically these OP's love, hate, challenge, support, chastise, and more.

Regarding 2016 Presidential primary season....I intend to listen and read about all of the candidates.

I intend to start with as clean a slate as possible. I intend to listen for words and statements that telegraph positions. I intend to read the position papers of each candidate.

Including Hillary.

I will not make a predetermined decision until I hear and read to determine if the candidate has evolved as I have known them to be in the past. Have they moved more right, or left? Expanded or contracted their positions? Will they stand on the shoulders of their experience and display the gravitas to talk about poverty and other issues that affect the people who are not registered voters.

Including Hillary.

I don't know about you, but I have changed my thinking and experienced valuable personal growth in the past 15 years. I'm still learning.

It's money...plain and simple...it trumps everything

GOP has tons of it...add in Citizen's United...Corporation have free "political" speech...equals negative ads...plus low information voters...suppresses turnout....equals outcome.

Simple. In the doctors waiting room. TV on. Negative ads every commercial break. I could not believe how people stared, like zombies, eyes fixated on the stupid TV.

Low information voters HATE politics. They HATE having their TV programs taken over by political ads. They HATE both parties. Sorry, but the ground game does NOT WORK on low information voters. Don't call, don't knock, they DON"T care.
Both parties are the same, no good. Why VOTE? Not me!!! You won't catch me giving up my time to VOTE!!

The GOP has found nirvana in the bank accounts of the corporations. Negative mailers, negative TV and lies work to suppress voting. The GOP does not want thinkers, does not want people to vote.

A quiet movement has started. Move to Amend. https://movetoamend.org

Please join.
(It took women 72 years to get the vote. Thank goodness they didn't bow to the intellectuals that said it would never happen.)

It really is a good place to start to make a difference. https://movetoamend.org

Sec Kerry addressing questions about ISIL -

Noticed a man in a red tie over Kerry's left shoulder sporting a "badge" clipped to his waist and ear piece. secret service ?

Here is a real journalist; not a corporate media hack.

$$$$$ has created soft, willing, political accomplices, now known as "the media"

Take 2:02 of your precious time to watch and weep, for our sad, sad state.

Chuck Todd/NBC shameless, manipulative, editorializing, bullshit.

During Todd's interview of Pres. Obama, NBC uses "stock" photos that directly contradict the words of the President. NBC makes sure viewers see the "corporate news view." The viewers hear one thing while seeing a conflicting image.

Todd sneers in reaction to statements, rolls his eyes at others, if that isn't editorializing, then what is it?

This of course is bullshit and my reconciliation with network news, is off.

Hey man, no big deal, relax, there were clear lines of authority and reporting.

Everyone did their jobs, I didn't know, I didn't care, or worry be happy, bye-bye suckers.
Sez Gov. Christie...

Dunn Jury: I need to calm myself down, by focusing on a positive outcome.

I am going to a quiet corner and picture the jury and send them all the positive energy and good thoughts I am capable of... For justice. It's all I can do.

Dear Pres Obama: Give um hell tonight, it's why we gave you a second term. Voters spoke.

We watched during your first term as the opposition manhandled your messages, slammed the door in your face and then took to the airwaves, doing all they could (successfully) to tear you down with their words.

But voters in 2012 got it, and understood the vicious nature of your detractors and wanted you to come out blazing in your second term..tonight is one of your last times to really give um hell on behalf of the people who voted for you.

Love you, and will be watching tonight with bated breath. I pray I will hear from you, the unexpected push back that would rock the talking heads to their core. The working poor and diminishing middle class are voiceless.

You have nothing to lose....we respect you...But most importantly of all..more than any speech can give we really need your advocacy.

Love, Ninga

Steve Kornacki previously reported AAA suing Port Authority over poll increases.

For all of you following Steve today, one of the main themes of what he is reporting on is how Christies appointees to the NJ Port Authority reallocated PA money to NJ Transportation fund for Christie's pet projects - many in communities that have Dem Mayors who love love love Christie for bringing infrastructure dollars to them.

1. He wants to run for Pres., he needs to get the attention of the nation- his plan requires him to have big ticket projects in NJ, but the transportation fund is dry, he need to replenish it and the Christie appointed big-wigs at PA help him. Christie then looks reaaaal good to low information voters who see grinning NJ Dems elbowing their way to his side for photo opps. Then he hugs Obama. He rises in the national polls. Check mark.

2. No story in the Christie saga is a small story - I believe they all connect, that is why this story is hugely important and worth following. The AAA smells something fishy and the smell is coming from dry land...


I am in love with Steve Kornacki, his compelling, riveting reporting translates

to the most incredible story telling - better than Homeland.

By the way, the all-New Jersey panel he had on this morning are all STELLAR examples of smart, focused, even handed public servants - including the one Republican.

Their statements, demeanor, respect and approach should be used in every Politics 101 class.
