2. Jeb will not be in the GE, since he will not be the Republican nominee

3. Well I think you are wrong about that.

The clown car is just to gain media attention, but in the end it will be a Bush especially if it is Bush v Clinton. Clinton will negate the dynasty problem he has...and he will sound more reasonable than his brother.

10. I agree. it will be Bush

 

He and Clinton both feel entitled to the white house. Big media loves both of them. Clinton will win because the big shots don't want the loonies in the republican party running amok. They have made out like bandits with Obama and the republicans getting their agenda through. Clinton with a republican congress would be more of the same.

18. The Clown Car is also for

comparison sake, i.e., "Who do you want, one of these certifiable insane idjits or the 'normal' one?" They let the craziest of the crazy in for a reason. What they didn't figure on was The Donald who is sucking the life out of the Republican party at the moment. Since The Donald's isn't really a real campaign that will leave only Jeb and his $100,000,000 (raised so far).

4. After watching him last night in the forum, I think you are right - he falls flat over and over


The GOP is tired of melba toast and he is soggy, month-old toast, at best

8. At this point there's no point in being the front runner. He's glad tRumps is a lightening rod....

next to the Donald Jebster looks almost reasonable.

The question is: do we quell the negative feelings that the public has about politics, politicians and government by offering them another Clinton/Bush race???

I think a Bush Clinton race would dampen voter turnout.

14. Well maybe if they nominate Trump and he takes Palin as VP...

 

Then they perhaps could win the battle of having the most extreme 'fringe hair' set of candidates if running against Bernie then, even while getting landslided in the election!

Maybe that might help the Repubs feel like they "won something" then!

5. I am still rolling my eyes at the meme that if I support Bernie, I am misogynistic AND racist.

 

That has, actually, energized me to GOTV for Bernie even more.
Oh, and that there is a list of actual issues, and I am not sure that counts for some people any more.

15. I hate to say it, but Rand Paul's parody fake phone call between

Hillary and Jeb! that came out months ago said something about Jeb and Hillary that is very similar to what this chart says.

On LGBT rights, yes, they both get the same check mark TODAY. But Hillary only earned that check mark in 2013. Bernie earned it decades ago. This OP inspired me to do a thread on the GLBT records Sanders, O'Malley and Hillary.

http://www.democraticunderground.com/128033139

Spoiler alert: Bernie was the first of the 3 by far to get on board with equal marriage and Hillary was the last of the 3 to get on board with equal marriage, even though Hillary and Bernie started in politics/activism at about the same time. In fact, Hillary may have started sooner than Bernie.

16. well if, as the polls show, Hillary is the preferred candidate for a big majority of democrats,

 

then the country is beyond repair and the party is almost dead. Look at Bernie's platform and then realize that no one in the government is willing to fight for those things. It's over.

17. Bernie is willing to fight for them. Be willing to fight for him.

Everything is not about the politicians. There's still us.
