...

Did John forget about his drunken podcast from last week?

Take the shitty Hillary Clinton H logo down already.

And admit it, It was a bad 'designed by committee' kind of logo, anyway

The entire world reacted last week. Many long, well-written reactions. While Gruber "struggled mightily" with his thoughts and then posted 150 words. Oh, and recorded what was maybe the most embarrassing hour of podcast the young medium has yet produced.

I would love to hear the younger, more thoughtful Gruber's thoughts on this and so many other things. But I think that Gruber is gone, and I'm not sure why I still come to DF.

Uhm, no, you've bombarded this website with your stupid views throughout this cycle and earlier. Until you lost.

>One, I’ve struggled mightily to put my thoughts together. This piece by Dave Pell does a hell of a good job of that.

No Gruber, that piece puts *David Pell's* thoughts together.

He is a different person than you. To put your thoughts together, you would have to do that yourself.

Why did Hildabeast lose?

Because the same racist white people that voted for Obama turned their backs on Hillary because she sucked.

Rageous:
Dems lost when they fucked Bernie in the primary and coronated Hillary too soon. If they'd run an honest, open primary with 10 contenders, the strongest, most vetted candidate would have won and likely smashed Trump. All the dirty laundry would've been aired out sooner too, rather than become October Surprise fodder. They nominated a weak and flawed candidate, perhaps the only one capable of actually losing to Donald Trump.

The only candidate capable of losing to Hillary Clinton was Donald Trump, and vice versa.

Maybe Democrats should consider actually delivering on something to someone other than ((Goldman Sachs)) - something besides being marginally better than the other side.

Shit. Shit happens.

We just need to deal with it.

But like I always say to Trump supporters.

I is going my way more than your way if you vote Trump :) have fun.

i hear you, ben. straight white male here, i'll be fine. but what won't be fine is the environment, or our standing in the world.

someone should write down all the important metrics - unemployment, real income, poverty level, gas prices, etc etc, and compare them to where we are four years from now.

Enough with that crock of shit - the working class didn't "rise up" - Republicans showed up in the same numbers as they have for the last three federal elections.

It was *Democrats* who got complacent with 5+ million less showing up versus the last election. They didn't like Hillary, but couldn't vote Trump, so they just didn't show.

The fact that only 50% of the eligible population votes should tell you what's really wrong with the USA.

Hillary was a terrible candidate.

Translation: I'm too lazy to write anything myself so I'll just link to someone else's hard work instead.

That may be, but Trump was way, way worse. That's why it was surprising that he won - not because Hillary was amazing.

Cast aspersions about Hillary all you want, Trump is unprecedented in terms of being a complete farce of a candidate.

Yes, I realize that he won.

Apparently not.

Watch Clinton Cash and tell me again how Trump is "worse" than Hillary. The corruption Hillary engaged in is unparalleled.

Hillary may be corrupt, but no one seems to be able to point to any legit evidence of it. I've followed many paths, but they all end in conjecture.

Also, no one seems to be able to provide any evidence that Trump's intellect rises above schoolyard 6 bully.

@Donald Clinton, what is Clinton Cash?

A documentary (and a book) detailing the astonishing corruption of Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation during her tenure as Secretary of State.

You can find it on YouTube, if interested.

Conjecture? Watch Clinton Cash. Even an idiot with the intellect of a schoolyard bully can see the obvious.

I'll keep an open mind and check it out sometime, but it's difficult to square "astonishing corruption" with independent ratings that score the foundation very highly.

No, it really isn't difficult at all.

Oh ok, thanks for clearing that up. You're a very good debater.

This isn't really up for debate. It's quite clear.
