“The president is lying. He a pathological liar who lies about everything: his fake hair, his obesity, and his spray-on tan.”

It was a setup I couldn’t resist. I know Vlad thinks she a neoliberal drone murderer.

So Mitt Romney is not welcomed to the CPAC. I guess it’s a big GOP no no to put country over party by voting for witnesses. What a bunch of low life criminals....

Wow Hillary really is a lazy woman who just rode on her husband's coattails. It's honestly not surprising to me that people still question her accomplishments-lather, rinse, repeat.

The quote is being taken out of context. I hate that I feel the need to sit here and speak for vlad... he clearly was commenting on how he didn’t believe her accomplishments as a member of various high offices (as a politician) were positive ones.

Vlad obviously isn’t stupid and doesn’t think Hilary Clinton isn’t a very highly decorated individual in terms of lifetime accomplishments, and I’m sure he appreciates her relevance as a female who has pushed the boundaries on a lot of that.

There’s no need to take his not-explained criticism out of context, seeing as we know who he is and we already know what he thinks. Throwing your arms up and adding him as just another data point of “people who question Clinton’s accomplishments” is just unnecessary.

That is so racist. Only a white person from a red stage would say that.

Now where the fuck is my Uber? I’m getting really nervous standing on this street corner in NE Washington.

I would challenge anyone to put up a list of accomplishments from any other candidate now, or possibly ever that has had anywhere near Clinton's accomplishments. I'll even challenge someone to come up with even half as long a list as this one.

I"m sorry, I'm just absolutely astounded that someone at this point doesn't now Clinton's background. It was one of the big reasons I switched from Bernie to her. No one comes close to her experience and background.

Ok ,now seriously. Just because someone has held a lot of positions doesn’t mean she was good at them or did anything worthwhile. I mean as a Senator and Secretary of State she was ineffective at best, useless at worst. She may or may not have been fired for being an ineffective attorney during the Nixon years (stories differ on that one).

But when I interview people for jobs, it’s nice to know what positions they’ve held, but it’s more important what they DID, was there a positive impact?

I know this doesn’t cover your entire list of “achievements “, some of which are actual achievements, but a big chunk of your list is “had this position, had this position “.

Bernie has accomplished even less in his life to be honest , Joe Biden, 50 years I’m Washington, done nothing but plagiarize , grope kids, and sniff women’s hair.

By your overtly stringent requirements, has your agent orange accomplished?

Groped a handful of women, grew his inherited fortune at a slower rate than the stock market, got roasted on Comedy Central, and what, wrote the art of the deal? Lol

Donald Trump was a mobbed up reality TV star masquerading as a real estate tycoon.

But sure, let's talk about what the Democrats have accomplished.

What is the context? He underlined accomplishments and asked me to elaborate. I guess it's the FYM club context in which everyone knows who everyone is and what they think. I don't belong to that, don't spend enough time here. And was away for a long time, honestly don't remember any of his "context".

I never suggested he is "stupid", you're getting a bit carried away there.

I was talking about her lifetime of accomplishments. I'm not rating her job performance. It's accomplishing nothing for Bernie supporters to boo her. Maybe they should start chanting lock her up too.

Just as it's accomplishing nothing for Hillary to say things like no one likes Bernie. Ridiculous and unnecessary.

So I can only assume it was a follow-on to Vlad, which seems like you’re sarcastically implying the recipient is just some ignorant sheep who is preaching the right’s anthem on Clinton.

You really enjoy arguing for the sake of doing so, me I'm good. You're putting the "ignorant sheep" thing onto me. That's not me, I don't name call other posters around here or imply that they're anything.

He underlined accomplishments and I explained my response. If my post was sarcastic well it's hardly the first time sarcasm has been used here.

Please just drop it, Vlad will be ok.

I’m aware Vlad will be okay. My retort to you’re post was because you’re doubling down about something that wasn’t the point. Because I can see his side to the point, but he’s not that active.

You can disregard my posts as “arguing for the sake of arguing” or whatever. That’s sort of lame though. You’re not willing to address what he really meant and I get that, because you already know what he really meant. You went full straw man argument here. We aren’t in an echo chamber. Expect a response if someone disagrees with what you’re saying.

You're being far too kind. He didn't just grope a handful of women. at least 24, and raped 3! Accomplishments!
And the Art of the Deal was written for him.
We could go on to list all his other failures, but i'm sure we are all familiar.
