    11 percent of millennials voted in New Hampshire. They had better get their ass in gear if they are going to count. And pray tell, why should they trust Sanders, a multimillionaire pretending to care about the "common man".

    We only get ripped apart in the minds of the low information thinker. And that would include you.

    I have been working at my computer for the past 30 minutes. I have the TV on in the background. In that 30 minute time frame I have heard 4 Bloomberg commercials, three of them with Obama praising him and one telling how he created jobs etc etc.

    Bloomberg is going to buy this nomination.

    If they nominate a white male billionaire they will lose the Bernie and Warren supporters.

    I have to agree. Pete Bootygay is out.We are not ready for a first husband. She is already being inconsistent though as she is shifting from leftist toward the middle.

    You have zero credible evidence for that assertion and you know that. Talking about “what you think about him or his motives” is simple baseless partisan hackery that demonstrates being out touch will reality. Comments like yours are just signs of neurotic thinking.

    If you can’t apply rational thought and a modicum of credibility then I would prefer that you not respond to my posts.
