You're just being dishonest if you don't admit that.
    Russian lies and interference,plus Comey's one sided investigation helped.

    A Democratic woman asked Comey at the hearing,the investigation of Trump began in July,but why did he not inform Congress until January.

    This election shouldn't have been close.

    Trump shouldn't have been breathing down the Democratic candidate's neck.


    Hillary's FBI scandal was a crisis of her own making. Comey didn't help, but if Hillary had been a good candidate, it wouldn't have mattered. She lost to someone as deplorable as Trump.

    There's no way to sugar coat how terrible of a campaign a Democrat needed to run in order to lose to Trump.

    Hillary Clinton beat him by over 3 million votes in the primary. That means, she has a solid base of support in the Democrat party. Whereas, Sanders isn't even a Democrat. Just like all the others people talking trash about the Dem party. Gotta love it. They want to have a say so in what the Dems do , even though they support another party.

    The Democratic party is shrinking.

    Yet somehow they thought that them liking Hillary would be enough to get a big percentage of the other 70% of the country to come on board with her.


    Over and over Democrats keep showing that they just don't get it. They don't get why they lost so many seats in the last 7 years. They don't get why their party is shrinking. They don't get how badly they have lost touch with the rest of the nation.



    Well, I have a fever. I don't need to have a heart attack too. I'm dropping out of this thread.

    They were deplorable. The example of the coal miner was a good one.

    Piece in my paper said the closing of two coal powered plants in Ohio was another blow to the ailing coal industry.

    And,now, China is taking action,switching to gas.

    Don't be coy, that was one of the stupidest things I've ever heard a presidential candidate say.

    Bernie is still out there clinging to his glory and Chris Hayes ratings are bad.
