A Tweety quote from today.

"I'm impressed with how far women have come in the last 40-50 years."

Rea-fucking-lly? He was referring to an Obama comment about how Obama wants more women in politics. I'm all for having honest, qualified men and women in politics and every other field of endeavor. But 40-50 years is so far behind the curve it is obscene.

How does this moron still have a job. His Carter speech writing days are long gone and so should Chris Matthews be.

Elizabeth Warren on Money in Politics

If there was any doubt who she will be supporting for president, this very much shuts the door on Hill. Not really a surprise but pleasing just the same.

US will sign Pacific trade deal on Feb. 4

This just turns my stomach. Obama's biggest failure during his 8 years.

Just shill.

And the firm has a long alliance with Democrat Hillary Clinton dating back to her Senate days. Goldman Sachs gave $169,850 to Clinton’s presidential campaign and super PAC, according to CRP’s analysis. The bank doled out $675,000 in speaking fees to Clinton after she left office.


And you expect Hill to act in the best interest of the majority of Americans when Goldman Sachs recommends eliminating Social Security, Medicare and other social programs? Riiiiight. . . .

When Wee,Willy Clinton says

"In politics, three weeks is an eternity", you know he and his wife are in panic mode. The audience barely recognized what he said. At least he learned his fairy tale lesson.

How do you feel about this idea being floated?

Andrea Mitchell was talking with Tad Devine of Bernie's campaign and asked him the following: If Bernie wins in Iowa, New Hampshire and Nevada, there is talk about replacing Hillary with someone else like Joe Biden because the establishment doesn't think Bernie is electable. How do you feel about that? Tad said as more people get to know Bernie, they'll recognize that he is electable.

This just shows how despicable the Dem establishment is. Claire McCaskill said the GOP ads against Bernie will contain a hammer and sickle. I say we throw out establishment fools like McCaskill and turn the DNC on its head.

The Andrea Greenspan Show

Has a parade of Hill supporters on to try to convince America that Bernie is a mirage and Hill is the only electable candidate. If they only saw how ridiculous they look including Jeanne Cummings, Ruth Marcus and Tom Vilsack so far. Leave it to Andrea to pull a snake out of a hat.

Prepare yourselves for a financial sector PAC

to run an ad talking about how they fear Hill because she's so tough on banks and financial services but fair to the American people. Whereas Bernie Sanders cannot possibly accomplish any of his policies. Then they'll say they are willing to work with Clinton even though they disagree with everything she wants to do.

I wouldn't put it past them nor Clintont to try it.

Uh oh. This wasn't supposed to happen.

Sanders cracks Clinton's Nevada firewall

LAS VEGAS – Hillary Clinton has been on the ground in Nevada since last April. Bernie Sanders only began building up his organization here late in the fall.
But the state that’s been touted as Clinton’s firewall against the Vermont senator in the event he generates any momentum out of the whiter and more liberal states of Iowa and New Hampshire is suddenly looking like it’s in play, potentially opening another unexpected early state front.

With all the posts about supporting the eventual

primary winner, I pose this question. If Hill wins and begins the GE campaign against the eventual GOP opponent, and either a real scandal or the GOP gains traction for whatever reason, would it not be wise to then support the runner-up? What if the runner-up (Bernie?)polls much better than Hill against the GOP and brings cross-over GOP votes with them?

This might sound highly unlikely but it is a real possibility. So I ask this question sincerely.
