Well, the proof is in. Dementia is a valid diagnosis. My comment on Sebes well written Blog was intended for this one and not the other one.
I sincerely apologize to all,'

The peasants rejoice:
Just so JM knows the above comment was not meant for you! If Hillary doesn't run, who's the next contestant for front runner in the Democratic party?
Well Sheran: Personally I like Sen.Chuck Schumer from N.Y. then I like Sen. Cory Booker from New Jersey. After that in no particular order but none the less viable candidates for Democratic Potus: Jerry Brown: Gov. California, Atlanta Mayor Muhammad Kasim Reed, Andrew Cuomo Governor of New York, Sen. Bob Casey of Pennsylvania, Mary Landrieu Sen. Louisiana, Mark Udall Sen. Colorado, Bill Neson Sen. of Florida. And my very favorite and last but not least...AL FRANKEN, SEN. MINNESOTA. Anyone who was the head writer for Saturday Nite Live would make a great President. Of course we always got Joe Biden to fall back on.
Who do you like? Don't say Huckabee...he's already been around the track and lost to his Republican Peers.
I think I'll just take a quarter out of my pocket heads so n so, tales so n so! Not a clue at this time!☺
THE TOP "10" REASONS TO VOTE DEMOCRAT !!
# 10) I vote Democrat because I love the fact that I can now marry whatever I want. I've decided to marry my German Shepherd.
# 9) I vote Democrat because I believe oil companies' profits of 4% on a gallon of gas are obscene, but the government taxing the same gallon at 15% isn't.
# 8) I vote Democrat because I believe the government will do a much better job of Spending the Money I Earn than I would.
# 7) I vote Democrat because Freedom of Speech is fine as long as Nobody is Offended by it.
# 6) I vote Democrat because I'm way too irresponsible to own a gun, and I know that my local police are all I need to protect me from murderers and thieves. I am also thankful that we have a 911 service that get police to your home in order to identify your body after a home invasion.
# 5) I vote Democrat because I'm not concerned about millions of babies being aborted so long as we keep all death row inmates alive and comfy.
# 4) I vote Democrat because I think illegal aliens have a right to free health care, education, and Social Security benefits, and we should take away Social Security from all those who paid into it.
# 3) I vote Democrat because I believe that businesses should not be allowed to make profits for themselves. They need to break even and give the rest away to the government for "Redistribution" as the Democrat Party sees fit.
# 2) I vote Democrat because I believe liberal judges need to rewrite the Constitution every few days to suit fringe kooks who would never get their agendas past the voters.
And the # 1) reason I vote Democrat is because I think it's better to pay $billions$ for oil to people who hate us, but not drill our own because it might upset some endangered beetle, gopher or fish here in America. We don't care about the beetles, gophers or fish in those other countries.
Sheran, That's a cut and paste job and ANYBODY can do it. Ask Tot. I would have much preferred YOUR words as you requested of me. Each side can cut and paste. Your true colors show when you can express your opinions in your own words and not in the words of others. :(
Regardless - Sheran - THOSE ARE GREAT REASONS TO VOTE DEMOCRAT. And one's "true colors" are shown by whatever they do or say that expresses how THEY THEMSELVES feel. This also applies to an "amen."
All of the top 10 reasons you cite are absolutely TRUE, and the Dems can't refute them so they attack:
*the messenger, or
*the means by which the message is being relayed
Those top 10 reasons are being recognized and understood by more and more people across the country. Look for the results at the ballot box in November.
You guys may think you have the momentum...but we ain't leaving here without a fight no matter what. You gotta earn it. We are not giving it to you even tho you'd like us too with all these pre-election poll numbers.
It ain't that easy.
Nobody said it was, but the GOP DOES have the momentum. Old Mo' has been playing out every day in the polls and in the upcoming Senate and House races across the country. As I said in prior comments, the Republicans still have plenty of time to grasp defeat from the jaws of victory. But IMHO they should focus on three things between now and November:
*Let ObamaCare continue to do the damage it has been doing. Don't overplay it - but make sure the Dem spin is undercut and the truth about the damage gets broadcasted.
*Never miss an opportunity to keep your mouth shut. (I tell this to my kids all the time.) Focus on facts and minimize opinions.
*When your opponent seems hell-bent on suicide, get the hell out of his/her way.
Is it possible that Bill could run as the VP? If so....we will walk the dog on yall. No matter who yall put up to run.
BTW: who is yalls candidate this week?
Bill who? If you mean Bill Clinton, here's what he said about whether he could CONSTITUTIONALLY run for Vice President in an interview on the Letterman Show awhile back:
Letterman: "Now there was a discussion last week, and there is I guess a greater discussion, and there's some confusion, and maybe I'm the only one confused about the eligibility of a man who has been elected twice as President to possibly be named later on the ticket as Vice President. Constitutionally speaking, can that happen?"
Clinton: "I don't believe so. There are some people who believe it can, and they have contorted readings of the amendment, the 22nd Amendment. But I believe as a matter of general interpretation, you're supposed to read all the Constitution including all the Amendments as if they were written almost on the same day at the same moment, so they're consistent with one another. And the Constitution says the qualifications for Vice President are the same as those for President. Now you can read that to mean 'to serve,' not 'to run for.' But I just don't believe it's consistent with the spirit of the Constitution for someone who's been President twice to be elected Vice President. I just don't think it's Constitutional. I don't think it's right and I wouldn't want to do that. I'd want to do whatever I could do to be of highest and best use for her, but there are lots of wonderful people out there, including all the people that are running this time would be good Vice Presidents. And, that's just not in the cards."
I personally believe it wouldn't be the slam-dunk you suggest even if it WERE possible. You might get the Dem base energized, but you would CERTAINLY lose all the Republicans and probably more than two-thirds of independents/swing voters. You have enough people who will vote against HRC because they see it as a dynastic extension. A Clinton-Clinton ticket would garner even less votes.
I don't know who the GOP candidate of the week is. You mentioned (I think) a Paul-Cruz (or was it Ryan-Cruz?) ticket in another blog string. Paul does seem to be energizing some millennials in places like Berkeley, and his libertarian streak seems to appeal to both Tea Partiers and the moderate GOP. It looks to me that the Republican field is just a bit more defined than the Dem field is WITHOUT Hillary. By just a small amount. But that's not saying much.
Here's the link for the Letterman-Clinton exchange:
Ok Sebe. Just maybe wishful thinking about them 'good ole days' of prosperity and world status. My bad.
I posted quite an extensive list on potential Demo Candidates a little while back. Check my comments made on my profile if you want to see them.
Yes - I've been consumed with "brackets" (and Dr. appts), and am just now getting back to the blog. My son and I usually do several brackets together and a bunch separately. I pointed out to my son yesterday that the ESPN bracket we did together is in the precise percentile as POTUS' bracket. Hardy-har-har. I told him that shows how smart WE are.....
As for the candy-dates, to paraphrase Sporty (who I miss): It's Hillary and everybody else - on both sides. I suspect somebody will come along that will catch the GOP's fancy, but they know who they need to "capture" in order to win a presidential election. I'm not sure they have that candidate yet. I'd hate to see the Dems win by default again (de fault of the Republicans, that is).
It does look like Christie is trying to "shape up" for a run, but he's probably given the Dem Dirt Machine too much to work with BridgeGate. But 100 pounds is a lot to lose:
