    Yeah, guess I'm too blind to be convinced by the Washington Post and grandstanding Democrats.

    Please quote all Democrats that have called African countries s*******s.

    Yes, Democrats want the Central American temporary immigrants to be made permanent. That is another matter. This should NOT have been included in this deal. Trump said that he didn't want adding Haitians included in the DACA deal. It is the African countries that he called s*******s. Also, in the past, he has said that Nigerians shouldn't be admitted because they would never want to return to their huts.

    In the last couple of weeks, Clinton refused to campaign in WI and MI. Instead she took trip to Arizona. Campaigning in these states would have helped in these states, as well as in PA. The issue in PA was NOT that she didn't campaign. She simply campaigned in the wrong areas. She might have finished the campaign with middle class working folk in Pittsburgh or Allentown, with country music. Instead, she chose a victory rally led by Beyonce in Philadelphia. The saddest part was that the African American turnout in Philly was relatively low.

    From some of the answers I have seen they do think he should be running a soup kitchen and expanding Welfare, Food Stamps and Medicaid at breakneck speed.

    Of course not. The Republican proposal was to cut $1TRILLION of Medicaid. In addition, they want to cut SS levels.

    The people will decide in November.

    You're talking about a different side of the political fence than I am.

    Indeed, she did. Imagine what it would have been if Democratic voters actually liked her.

    Probably about the same, liking a candidate means nothing to some people.

    I don't know what (D)'s say in private. But I remember when Joe Biden contrasted Obama with an implied, typical black person: "I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy," Biden said. "I mean, that's a storybook."

    I don't think that this bar is low when we are considering potential immigrants.

    No. That never occurred to me and even after he said that I'm still not offended. Someone may have mentioned to him they were offended by the term, but I've never even seen a discussion about it in all these weeks it's been discussed. I think it's a major over reach.

    There were reports at the time of Trump's lawyers being in recount places intimidating people. If I recall correctly it was MI, but don't quote me.

    Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks. I don't know why his base throws all biblical wisdom out the window when it comes to Trump.
