Re: POTUS 2016, part 3

I find it more interesting that you keep linking to such unbalanced sources, which deserve exactly the kind of short-shrift I gave it. Progressives don't need right-wing commentators such as yourself to identify where it all went wrong. It's simple. The insistence of Hilary Clinton, of the centre-r...

Re: POTUS 2016, part 3

On average. Again, the Democrats would have won handily if they hadn't had such a terrible candidate. If they'd had another person with the charisma level of Obama, it would have been no contest. Trump won the election with 600,000 fewer votes than Romney had when he lost in 2012. It's worth pointi...

Re: POTUS 2016, part 3

The election of Donald Trump to the Presidency is nothing less than a tragedy for the American republic, a tragedy for the Constitution, and a triumph for the forces, at home and abroad, of nativism, authoritarianism, misogyny, and racism. Trump’s shocking victory, his ascension to the Presidency, ...

Re: POTUS 2016, part 3

Today, we’re facing a new reality – a president-elect who has denigrated people because of their race, their religion, their ethnicity, their gender, and more. Our mission is to hold Donald Trump to what he is saying now – that he will be a president for all Americans and that he will work to bind ...

Sure, and who decides what a nationalist twitter account is ? Since that claim is coming from a super anti trump newspaper you can be sure anything not pro-clinton is considered while supremacy by them.
