Trump will encourage his supporters to vote against her for the republican nominee and the Independents who break for dems will stay home along with a lot of fed up dems. Hillary won't win the White House.

I will eschew the highfalutin language my fans and foes have become accustomed to on this board and speak the idiomatic English which I am infinitely more fond of.

George Stephanopoulos asked Hillary how she felt about Herr Trump talking shit about her. She said it doesn't bother her and that's she used to being attacked. She did say it bothers her that Herr Trump talks shit about Hispanics, Muslims, women, the physically challenged, and other people.

Perfect answer.

I don't think she actually thinks people will. Clinton ties to the Panama Papers, waffling on TPP, Keystone XL judgement, her principled statement on Gay Marriage before she evolved, emails on trade where she public ally is against the deal while advising her colleagues to vote for it, money and arms dealings with the Clinton Foundation...... We aren't even scratching surface on material here. Her recommendactions to Obama on Libya, her cozy ties with Wall St., the email judgement .... Calling HRC "crooked" is mild compared to what is coming.

In the HRC supporter bubble, you think everyone is supposed to overlook this baggage and poor judgement. Independents, Republicans, and some Democratic Party members can't snd won't compromise. Google and You Tube clips don't go away.

Bernie could have and possibly should have been much tougher from get go This is mild compared to what is coming down the road. Can't sweep off the damping stuff off the Google and rigged voting systems can work against the initial candidate establishment wanted to run.

HRC supporters can never admit their candidate is GOP lite or can honestly defend her baggage, so they use the ol' "you are the problem" approach.

With that note, I'll use my time more wisely and phone bank for Bernie. I'd rather have a better world for my kids and keep what social security I have banked up than lose it to a Corporate, triangulating, fracking loving, bought out "democrat" like HRC.

Pretending every attack on Clinton comes from the right and is bogus is intellectual laziness or willful ignorance.

Hillary has a ton of baggage, some of it GOP fantasy (Benghazi, Whitewater), some of it real (Her cowardly and cynical IWR vote, her speeches to big donors, her email mess, the FBI investigation, her flip-flops, her dishonesty on her positions and actions, Clinton Foundation irregularities etc. etc.).

Her bad judgment and the results from that far outweigh any good she has ever done.

On Sun Apr 17, 2016, 04:12 PM an alert was sent on the following post:

republican plant
http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1251&pid=1762764

REASON FOR ALERT

This post is disruptive, hurtful, rude, insensitive, over-the-top, or otherwise inappropriate.

ALERTER'S COMMENTS

I am the accused (hi, jury). I've been at DU for 15 years. I'm not a Republican plant. And I did ask my accuser if he planned to edit or delete. He says no.

JURY RESULTS

You served on a randomly-selected Jury of DU members which reviewed this post. The review was completed at Sun Apr 17, 2016, 04:20 PM, and the Jury voted 5-2 to HIDE IT.

Juror #1 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: realmirage, everyone who disagrees with you is not a Republican. Even though you have made 302 posts since you registered Monday night, April 11, 2016, it takes a lot of grit to call someone who has posted on Democratic Underground for 15 years a Republican. Try posting substance instead of name-calling.
Juror #2 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #3 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: REALLY tired of valid questions / concerns about the Clinton candidacy being called right-wing smears. TRUTH IS TRUTH. Hide this.
Juror #4 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #5 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: People are entitled to their opinions! And as an added measure the commenter explained what was intended by the comment.
Juror #6 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #7 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: Making a direct attack on a long time DUer that has no basis.

Thank you very much for participating in our Jury system, and we hope you will be able to participate again in the future.

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s controversial campaign could just be a ruse to sabotage the GOP, said U.S. Rep. Carlos Curbelo, R-Fla. After all, the billionaire is so friendly with Hillary Clinton, Trump invited her to his nuptials.
