Much of the media would follow suit in that case, I'd reckon. Red baiting is still fairly widespread, much to my unsurprising annoyance.

Do you think these ties to Russia would be nearly as damaging for Trump if he was running against a socialist?
Even Shaun King wrote an article about voting for Hillary. And he's a big man baby. Or at least I thought so, until I read all the top comments on his post.

Your narcissism and ignorance knows no bounds. Is this what defines "far left progressive"? Because honestly with the exception of a few anti-capitalism views you've expressed you align more with Trump, it's really not surprising that you're stumping for him now.

Well first things first they have:
to fill the arena for HRC, as they are approx 700 empty seats that some have denied here.

As a courtesy Im posting the Craig's List ad for my under or unemployed left leaning associates trapped in the crap Obama economy: to help out any qualified HRC Supporters (they threw out Bernie Supporters) on the east coast.

Good luck

It could be a while for him to have any real competition. Clinton is clearly to his right politically and might even be more so once she takes office and there's always the possibility that another "centrist"-type like Cory Booker succeeds her, etc.

And as brought up in here, there will certainly be Democrats in the future that achieve far more than he could due to a more favorable Congressional environment. Clinton is probably likely to achieve even less as she'll need to score a big House win in 2020 if she ever wants to be able to pass significant left-leaning legislation. I don't see that happening.


How I Rate Them

Truman: Can't rate. Continued FDR's policies but also dropped nukes, so, maybe a C?

Eisenhower: D

Kennedy: D-

Johnson: D (Best domestic policy improvements since FDR, but that foreign policy...oy.)

Nixon: F

Ford: F

Carter: D

Reagan: F

Bush: D-

Clinton: D-

Bush: F-
Lolz

God we must suck, huh?

What is the point? I guess the DNC is as relevant as a U2 show since neither can sell out all their shows

You're really grasping for anything aren't you?

Now Craigslist is a source?! Well it's slightly more accurate than Breitbart, so I'll give you that.

WHAT'S UNDETERMINED: Who placed the ad
I wouldn't place too much emphasis on Snopes as being accurate: ran by a husband & wife team who are known Atheists and considered by some as liberal hacks.

Apparently this journalist believes the ad as authentic:

Quote:
Are You An Actor at the DNC? (New York) hide this posting


© craigslist - Map data © OpenStreetMap
1020 Walnut Street
(google map)

no pay

I'm a journalist looking to speak to anyone who replied to the DNC's numerous posts on this forum looking for actors to fill seats at the convention. If you are someone who replied, or you are in fact filling a seat, and you are open to speaking with a writer, please reach out.

Thanks.

Liberals will use the term progressive in place of liberal here, to avoid being labeled as laissez faire or non regulatory on economics.

First of all if you're gullible enough to think any political party would put something out there so visible and obvious then you deserve Trump's Meeica.

Secondly Snopes hasn't had any of their major fact finds disputed. Being atheist has absolutely nothing to do with anything. And Oregoropa already tried this mission and failed.

yeah, I can't see any possibility of a Bernie supporter, who walked out and then tried to claim it left the place empty, when it in fact did not, try and place a stupid ad like this out of petty hurt feelings. That seems TOTALLY out of the realm of possibility. Go ahead and reply to the ad and see how it goes. Report back with your 50 dollar check from the DNC.

Odd how there were no empty seats on the actual night that the Bernie people left, and no empty seats last night either... So yeah. how does this make sense?
