He's throwing ideas out like you'd have a conversation. He has no depth. There is no trust that he would even know how to do anything nor that he would even stick with whatever idea that might appeal to you. His legislative experience is zilch. Nada. And he is mean (deportation ideas are insane!).

I just retook it. Bernie, 94%, Hillary, 92%, Biden, 83%.

I've come to the conclusion it's going to be Hilary. I think the only thing that could have stopped her would have been the email situation. Nothing will happen. Reading up on Clinton presidency and finding the Clintons had a history of getting into serious jams and then out of them. Not sure if they were trumped up (no pun) or not.

I saw Hilary on tv last week or so for a town hall on one of those morning shows, which seemed wrong because it was one big hour long commercial sponsored by the network for her. The audience was so planted with people asking question that were so clearly for her. I don't really care for the her from what I've read but man she's very charismatic and draws you in

At least one of the networks owners is contribution $$$ to her campaign. There is flack about not giving Bernie much airtime because the people with money are pushing her.

Erinspigs, I'm no fan of either Clinton, but the things they have accused of over the years by ultra-conservatives have been largely either completely bogus, or similar to what other politicians have done many times. (The accusations against Obama have gone a step further and verged on the psychotic.)

As usual, the Onion is the best commentary on a political situation.

Took it again. Clinton is one of my top three when I answer just "yes" and "no," but Carly Fiorina is when I give more in-depth answers. SMH.

Mitt Romney will announce run for presidency early 2016 after primary circus begins with Trump et all.

He'd be a lot better than that bunch of fools they've got running now.

I agree bpatters, I've read he is unhappy with the party though.

I think as an American, he has to run. This guy Trump might very well win the primary. If he wins that he's one step away.

Now we all believe Trump would never win the presidential election just like we know Tennessee won't beat the Patriots this week.

But there is always a chance the Titans could win. It's the old, on any given Sunday theory - same with Trump.

Sef posted this on Facebook. Very appropriate. Guinea pigs react to Donald Trump:

"You mean that's not a guinea pig? Donald Trump is the guy under that?"

Most of my family (if not all) are republicans. That said, they seem to think any democratic candidate is pure evil. I hate that kind of thinking. I'm researching both parties' candidates to choose who I will vote for in the upcoming primaries and election.

I just love the guinea pig/Trump video.

CCC, that is how the majority of my family thinks; so much so that I tend to keep my political views to myself.

As far as trump, he is a idiot and a bully; throwing insults at other candidates is not going to get him the votes. My vote is still for Bernie!

Crazy4me, I also tend to keep my political views to myself. However, my family does not. In fact, a nephew has posted a link to an article on Facebook about President Obama being on vacation and golfing. I guess said nephew never vacations.

I'm starting to get more vocal in my views because I am just sick and tired or our leaders being put down!

I hate these really obvious, easily checked falsehoods! I'm no fan of Obama, but he has NOT taken a lot of vacations. (Apparently it's true that he does like to golf!) It's easy to insist that any source that disagrees with you is "biased", but:

http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/article/2014/aug/23/ ... -barack-oba/

http://www.factcheck.org/2014/08/presidential-vacations/

He has NOT grabbed more power than previous presidents, was NOT born in Kenya, is NOT a Muslim (but that shouldn't matter), etc. etc. He HAS launched drone attacks that killed a lot of civilians--you'd think the GOP candidates would like that based on recent statements...
