Stein’s willingness to antagonize Democrats goes beyond her travel itinerary. She laces into Clinton and the Democratic Party on a regular basis in her media appearances and on her Twitter feed.
“It’s not the fault of the Bernie Sanders supporters. It’s the fault of the Democrats for choosing Hillary Clinton.”
And of their fellow Sanders supporters now throwing their support to Mrs. Clinton? “Disgusting,” said John Flaherty, 63, a retired photographer from Wayland, Mass.
One of the last remaining questions of the Democratic presidential primary season is how many of the 12 million people who voted for Mr. Sanders will back his opponent, Mrs. Clinton, now that she is the presumptive nominee.
And if interviews with about a dozen Sanders supporters who gathered here this weekend are any indication, the “Bernie or Bust” component of his large following will survive past the summer, even if Mr. Sanders eventually endorses Mrs. Clinton.
Powell did use a personal email address for government business however he did not use a private server at his home, as Clinton did.
Not tell the board how you liberals do not trust big government servers.
POLI TIFACT :
This is a mislea ding claim chiefly because only one prior secretary of state regularly used email, Colin Powell. Powell did use a personal email address for government business, however he did not use a private server kept at his home, as Clinton did.
We rate this cl aim Mostly False.
referring to a 2013 episode when Congress, led by conservatives, withheld government funding in protest of Obamacare. The Republican leader added, “It’s not a good brand.”Campaigning on a promise to repeal Obamacare and lower spending, Republicans took control of the Senate and McConnell became majority leader in 2014. Now he complains that conservatives have exaggerated Congress’s ability to reverse the controversial health care law or control government spending.
“For one thing, I think a lot of today’s voters have really been misled by talk show hosts and others about what’s achievable when you don’t have the White House,” McConnell said.
He added that grassroots conservatives “have been fed” an impossible notion, namely that “somehow a Republican Congress can overcome a Democratic president and eventually bring him to his knees when it’s not possible.”
Were you surprised when he switched his party affiliation from Independent to Democrat? He seemed to think he didn't stand much of a chance of winning as a third-party candidate.
It wasn't surprising at all. It seems like the logical and strategic thing for him to do from his perspective. I think he's been both proven right and proven wrong. We are in a damned-if-you-do and damned-if-you-don't situation right now, which should be fixed by a simple legislative reform — that could be passed right now, by the way, for anybody who is concerned about wanting to change this rigged political system: The state legislatures can simply pass ranked-choice voting, which gets rid of the fear factor. It is used in many cities around the country from San Francisco to Portland, Maine, and many in between, and in many countries around the world. It allows you to rank your choices instead of just picking one; you don't have to make your vote a gamble.

Mr. Sanders said in a statement that he was “disappointed but not surprised” by Mrs. Clinton’s “unwillingness to debate before the largest and most important primary in the presidential nominating process.” He added, “I hope Secretary Clinton reconsiders her unfortunate decision to back away from her commitment to debate.”
So true says Mr. Magoo !
as Trump moves the GOP a little to the left !
Hopefully he'll win a few more states besides!
Which is great! LEFTIES RULE!
