How the right-wing handed the nomination to Hillary, and then won the election

Could easily be the story if Bernie doesn't win and an indictment comes.

How? By inoculating Hillary supporters against the truth. The right-wing has beat up on the Clintons so much over the years, that any hint of wrong-doing by Hillary is just swept under the rug by her supporters because it's obviously just more right-wing smears.

For a Hillary supporter, it seems that there can be no open discussion. No consideration that she just might have done something wrong.

There is only one candidate currently with an active ongoing FBI investigation. There is only one candidate that deleted 30,000 emails. There is only one candidate that sent classified information to Sidney Blumenthal - and it's not classified after the fact.

This is in addition to not releasing transcripts, lying to unions about the Colombia Free Trade Agreement, having pay for play arms deals with the Clinton Foundation exposed by the emails and the list goes on. But no Hillary supporter will ever even consider that there might just be some truth in any of it.

29. Uhm...

Did you misread, by chance?

It's Sanders' acolytes who've been bleating for months that Clinton supporters only offer FUD as a reason to vote for her, while they're all peace, love and harmony. Yet today is a stellar example (among many) of his followers swarming the board with end-of-the-world scenarios should Clinton be nominated.

Peace, love and harmony, brother.

I understand the tension. That said, I'm going to enjoy the shit out of today.

Here's to you and yours!

32. We didn't create the tension.

I have zero desire to instruct my fellow Democrats how to vote in a primary or belittle them for their choices.

I am going to savor this day.

Get real.

Then it's a possibility. Why roll the dice?

13. That's my question. Why roll the dice?

IMO she even blew the timing. Hawaii's primary isn't until late March, and this news will be buried by the Super Tuesday results today that will overwhelmingly favor Clinton and will dominate the news.

7. Stop with the anti Hillary if you are pro Bernie

He doesn't want his supporters doing this. He knows it only helps Trump or Cruz. I am quite sure he opposes these RW smears being used in his name. I see nobody trying to damage him here. We know if he is the nominee we don't want to sow rancor and help the Republicans.

There is a legitimate concern that there will be an indictment. Ignoring it doesn't make it go away.

15. You don't have a point other than re-cycled Benghazi hearing nonsense

and regurgitated Rupert Murdoch-owned outlet's talking points. And wing-nut books that were discredited/debunked even before they were published.

I seriously hope you are not peddling this nonsense when you knock doors for Bernie. He deserves way better.

There is a difference between a witch hunt and an FBI investigation. It would be nice if Hillary supporters could even admit that.

23. It's likely she won't, given the corruption.

 

But it doesn't excuse the fact that there is still an active FBI investigation into legitimate misdeeds. And an FBI investigation is not a congressional witch hunt, no matter how you try to trivialize it.
