Hey Aloha and Mahalo, Agschmid.. "Hillary Fighting For America's Workers"!

This is an excellent record of history for Hillary!


P.S. I thought I saw you were a Bernie supporter.. must have gotten you mixed with someone else. I haven't zeroed in on one candidate yet but I'm leaning towards Hillary just from the pros and cons around here.

Really. That's a rw talking point that evidently sucked in more than their usuals.


"On the surface it sounds damning. The Secretary of State potentially sent top secret information through her personal account, even though there’s evidently a law that says she’s not allowed to use a personal account for government business — sounds outrageous. But like many of the bombshell news stories we’ve witnessed in the last couple of years, it all falls apart under the most cursory level of scrutiny.

1) The article quotes a lawyer affiliated with the National Archives who set the tone for the outrage

“It is very difficult to conceive of a scenario — short of nuclear winter — where an agency would be justified in allowing its cabinet-level head officer to solely use a private email communications channel for the conduct of government business,” said Jason R. Baron, a lawyer at Drinker Biddle & Reath who is a former director of litigation at the National Archives and Records Administration.

A nuclear winter! Interesting, because the article goes on to note that numerous other State Department and other government officials have used private email accounts, partially or exclusively, including Secretary of State Colin Powell who only used a personal email account.


None of this has stopped the Twitter jihad, and especially conservatives on Twitter, from jumping to all kinds of wildly uninformed, unthinking conclusions in spite of the fact that it appears we have yet another dubiously-reported bombshell. It might not be as over-the-top dubious at some of the NSA reporting of 2013-14, but it’s definitely in the same territory. No laws were apparently broken, as far as we know, and the article completely fails to show hard evidence of irresponsible email transmissions by Clinton. Should she have used a government email account? Probably. But does this warrant what’s surely going to be 20 months of indignation and investigations from both the right — and the anti-Hillary left? No way.


4. At the time Clinton was Secretary, the Federal Records Act didn’t require federal employees to use government accounts, only to preserve records of their communications. This, Clinton seems to have done.

MOre.. I just snipped and snipped..

"If Bernie himself was acting anything like this, I'd stop listening to a single thing he said."

Fortunately for Bernie.. he's not his supporters on the internet.

Mahalo byronius

I read on DU that President Obama is a "Trojan Horse" and "not a dem".. how dare he propose

sweeping regulations on gun ownership aimed at keeping guns out of the hands of those convicted of domestic violence and the mentally ill."

How dare he?!!!! That's not what "Trojan horses" do.. "Not a dem" does not do this?!! Wth!

Mahalo Koadems! The gop will scream their heads off.. they want guns in the hands of these people.. according to them.. everyone needs a gun .. no matter who violent or sick.

"President Obama topped the list of 89% favorable to 9% unfavorable".. As I've been saying..

whomever wins the Dem nom Will want the Obama Coalition. They'll want the President campaigning with them and for them.

I tell ya one thing, Andy.. whomever wins the Dem Nom will want the Obama Coalition.. they

will want that "not a Dem"lol) to be campaigning with them and for them.

And, the accusers won't be having much fun then.

"A Tidal Wave Of Good News In Iowa: Hillary Clinton Soaring and Obama Beloved by Democrats"


Starting off with asking likely Democratic caucus-goers to rate their feelings from very favorable, mostly favorable, mostly unfavorable, or very unfavorable about prominent Democrats, President Obama topped the list of 89% favorable to 9% unfavorable.


Gov O'Malley zings Bernie, too..

GS" "..why should progressive voters pick you over Bernie Sanders?"

GOVERNOR O’MALLEY: "..Because I have a track record of actually getting things done, not just talking about things."


<<GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: –why should progressive voters pick you over Bernie Sanders?

Cheap shot or not?

Precisely, NYC Liberal.. good analysis. She is not her husband Bill. It's too lazy an attack.

Exactly.. not after losing in 2008 and 4 years as SOS... she's working her way back. I still

don't have a candidate but I find myself defending Hillary from the lazy cheap pot shots.

But, I'm not dismissing Gov O'Malley.. just don't like that. I've put up with so many ignorant cheap pots on Pres Obama over the years.. kinda sick to pieces. If it's real and constructive.. OK.

Oh, Zing at Bernie from O'Malley! Cheap shot or not?

GS" "..why should progressive voters pick you over Bernie Sanders?"

GOVERNOR O’MALLEY: "..Because I have a track record of actually getting things done, not just talking about things."

Thanks cheapdate.. it's not just Hillary who got it.
