This is not going to help Hillary who many rightfully say is Obama/Bush in a dress. Her corporatist views are the same as the last few decades of nonsense that has gotten us into the dire straights we are still mired in. She is quite simply not believable when she says things that Obama told us and instead of the FDR we demanded, we got Bush lite. Fantastic. We voted for him in 2012 not because we believed a word that came out of his mouth, but that we did believe that Mitt Romney and the GOP would sink this country even further into despair. If it hadn't been for gerrymandering and the Democratic party running the worst campaigns they could in 2014, they wouldn't have lost so badly and the Senate and House would be firmly in democratic hands which, let's face facts, would be better than the idiots in there now.
Every single Republican jumped all over the Iran deal, along with all of my Israeli friends, even though it seems like a good idea. The Congress hadn't even read the final draft yet, and admitted as much, before the whipped their dicks out and pissed all over it. Isn't that the same excuse you guys used over Obamacare which was better than expected in some ways, worse in others, but all of which were readily predictable if you knew anything about insurance, which the GOP obviously didn't? Why should we be listening to them about Iran then? Keeping Iran from a nuke for ten years is a great start and as the right wingers have no viable alternative other than bombing them back to the stone age, these guys need a tall cool drink of shut the fuck up tea.
This is what drives me nuts about the Republican party. What exactly are people voting for? They have no idea how to fix Obamacare other repealing it, which is not an option as what came before it was far, far worse. Do they really want a third of this country not having medical care? That's a lot of dead people guys. They have no idea what to do against Iran expect to kill them all and let God sort them out. As almost none of them have any military background this is hardly surprising and are apparently unaware that every military exercise states that the only way to beat them would be with nukes which may start WW3 and send oil prices into the stratosphere.
Here's a quick down of the major Republicans running for office:
Donald Trump- A billionaire by inheritance, Trump has zero experience in government, has filed for bankruptcy four times, yet still kept all his money. Try that as a not billionaire and see how well that does for you. Trump is a bomb thrower that will eventually burn his face off. At least he's interesting.
Jeb Bush- Anyone voting to out another Bush in office has to admit they are mentally ill and check themselves into a psyche ward immediately. His father was a giant douchebag whose trickle down economic policies decimated the country and got us into a war by lying about babies being thrown into incinerators in Iraq that actually never happened. His brother was the worst President ever who ran the country into the ground, got us back into Iraq with even bolder lies and let North Korea get a nuke because he was too busy playing President rather than being one. Jeb Bush helped steal the 2000 election for his brother, destroyed every business he got his hands on and may actually be even dumber than George. STOP VOTING FOR BUSHES! JUST STOP!
Scott Walker- Not even a college grad, whose reasons for leaving are still hidden behind closed doors, this moron hates compromise which is terrible attitude for the President to have. He got out of a possible crime as the four judges who ruled in his favor in his Super Pac collusion case all got money from people who run Walker's Super Pac. Not conflict of interest there. I love how the right screams bloody murder when some judge acts like the smallest activist they can, but blatant corruption and not a peep. Walker is destroying his state's economy and will do the same for the country.
Rand Paul- Paul has backtracked on just about every major claim he has every made, John McCain style, and we all know how that worked out for him. When you kowtow to the far right, the general election stomps on you. His chances are fading fast.
Mike Huckabee/Rick Santorum- Religious wingnuts have fallen out of favor over the years and these two are knew deep in it. They have no chance as anti-gay rhetoric is a third rail topic that is going to decimate the GOP in 2016.
Ted Cruz- This guy might just be the dumbest man on the face of this Earth yet he graduated from Harvard and was a debate champion. How is that possible? His idiocy makes him not only beyond unelectable, it almost makes him less human. I don't think there is an IQ chart low enough for him to register. Let's see what the press thinks of him:
|–||"I think he's the worst. I think he's scary, I think he's dangerous, I think he's slimy and I think he brings no fresh ideas." - Donny Deutsch & MSNBC|
|"Ted Cruz's phenomenally bad idea" - Washington Post|
|–||"Ted Cruz's 'country music' drivel: What's really behind his musical conversion" - Salon.com|
|–||"Can You 'Imagine' Ted Cruz as President?" - The New Yorker|
Ben Carson- He's black and Republican. Nuff said.
Carly Fiorina- A woman and Republican. See above. It doesn't help she ran HP into the ground and fired 30,000 while CEO. Imagine what she would do with the country.
Chris Christie- The Buffoon from NJ is polling terrible in and out of state as his political career is just about over. He missed his chance in 2012. 2016 will be death knell.
Marco Rubio- Outside of Jeb Bush and his inexplicable polling numbers, Rubio has the best chance of getting the nomination which may help the GOP as he is Hispanic and may attract some voters that, again other than Jeb because of his Mexican wife, have virtually no chance of getting any at all. Trump is positively killing that hope along with the tepid response from 90% of the GOP. He'll still lose in a general election as his anti-immigration, anti-abortion, and anti-gay policies sink his ship. If he runs against Hillary or Bernie in 2016, he'll only lose by a hundred electoral votes, rather than all of them for the rest.
Bobby Jindal- He's Indian, is Governor of a state falling apart, and dead last in numerous categories and because of that make him the least likely candidate running to win. You'd be safer betting you will be struck by lightning while being attacked by a shark as Emelia Earhart's corpse washes by. Anyone supporting him must be insane because this is a lost cause.
John Kasich- Who?
George Pataki- Why?
Lindsay Graham- HAHAHAHA! This try must be for a Fox News job after he is kicked out of Congress because no one is voting for an allegedly closeted gay Republican.
Rick Perry-Because Texas governors with intelligence issues have worked so well in the past. Good luck, you'll need it.
Bernie Sanders meanwhile is making some inroads at Hillary who I still feel will be our next President and if that is the case we have to hope that she is better than we expected Obama to be. I wouldn't get your hopes up however. If you are reading this and want things to change, Sanders is the guy. Don't get caught up in the word democratic socialist, as those countries are the best run ones on Earth right now. See how places like Iceland and Sweden are doing compared with the US. It's staggering. We need a serious change come 2016 or face a dim future. Don't vote for the GOP regardless as they are hell bent on destroying us all. Their policies demand it.
