What plan does dickhead Donald have to increase your salary? How does a man who's been handed everything in his life, and when he did fail walk away from his responsibilities by filing bankruptcy, qualify as someone who is a champion for the middle class? Can you see how that makes absolutely no sense to anyone outside of the world of Breitbart.
This.

He got 1 million $ to start up his real estate businesses from his dad. Some champion!

Because it's an issue (not the only issue, but it is present) here.

Gender is more complex than even race, and there may be something about the power of the presidency -- it's not like being PM, there are real differences -- that makes men (and many women) upset when envisioning a woman in that position.

I know, I know. HRC has been around for 25 years. She's as establishment as they come. She's "unlikeable." She's shrill. Earlier we talked about how much of a bitch she was or wasn't. Remember that?

Is the presidency so inherently alpha that any female candidate would be "unlikeable"?
Did someone call u racist for disagreeing w Obama ( sorry, I just got a hotspot from the library for the next 4 months [ trial program for closing he digital divide] so I' only been able to follow this thread closely vs the infrequent drop in, in one of these previous threads?

I knew from listening to Air America at the time that he was not going to be as liberal on certain things as people were projecting.

So I disagree w him on some things and really like other things he's done. And was very glad that I was able to go to the Inauguration both times as a gift from my sis to go w her.

As for Hillary are you saying she's that OR that other people are saying that. I can renember waaaay back in a Mad Magazine where cartoon -
if man does ,______ it's considered [insert positive description], if a woman does the same thing she's co sidered [insert negative description].

She also comes across as a liar in the sense that she would be willing to do or say whatever it takes - plenty of examples of male politicians who also change their votes whichever way the wind blows. Hell Trump is a much bigger liar and has been branded so.

None of this in any way justifies voting for Trump, but I think that we're really trying to twist ourselves into a pretzel here to explain away Hillary's faults as somehow being the inherent fault of a sexist electorate. Sorry, there is plenty there to dislike without any misogyny. I have many, many highly educated feminist (some even ultra-feminist) friends, not a single one of them thinks much of her, though would all vote for her given the alternative.
I'm a serious feminist and I like Hillary. I don't agree with some of her policies- I'm more liberal/progressive.

Maybe I've not caught her sounding "smug".
She's not a natural politician like her husband. So she often sounds stilted etc.

Maybe because on occasion through the decades I've heard her in one to one interviews on public radio, she doesn't sound that way. And she's a policy wonk which I lije

I definitely like Warren!

A Trump-Sanders debate would be hilarious. For all the wrong reasons.

I think BigMacPhisto has a point about Trump, honestly. Watch this clip from Kimmel. I don't think he would be nearly as dangerous as people think. It's just a big ego trip.



And I can't deal with Trump not winning. It would be so entertaining all the time.

A"set back"?

Tell that (if trump would go along with the more radical right-wing policies) to people of color, the poor, the disabled , the somewhat-near-to-retirenent when they they try to reduce future Social Security payments, IR to the elderly, or disabled or poor when they go after Social Security Disability, Medicare, or Medicare. Or if they don't get rid of some of the entitlements totally turn some of them into partly , or fully privatized.

that's not all true r in the sense that certain people in Clinton's Administration were trying to get the incoming W adnin to watch out for Bin Laden. To which they paid little heed

Then there was the memo in ? August 6 2001 saying that "Bin Laden determined to strike in US" Sex Rice said itvwas past tense not present possible , which I think us bukkshit

And on other thing either G8 meeting in either 2000 or 2001(pre 9-11) the building was surrounded by Antiaircraft Missie launchers.

Now I'm way more caught up
