It won't be Hillary. She doesn't have nearly the organization she needs to make a successful run, and the big money boys are holding out for Uncle Joe. Of course there is Coumo, and I heard Jerry Brown from California is making noises. He isn't that popular outside California.
Apparently you know nothing about politics. Joe will not get the nomination....it'll be Hillary hands down. Stay tuned in for some more of my predictions.....i haven't lost yet.

Did you not view my comment correctly.....i said Reagan started the downward trajectory of the middle class. Bush 1 escalated it, and Clinton chimed in, but bounced us into a surplus. Bush 2 never had a clue and messed everything up. Corporate takeovers became the norm rather than the exception. Tea people and the party of "no" still trys to throw the middle class under the bus.
How did Reagan start it? Chinese companies didn't exist yet. I believe it was Atari that first contracted a new company to make their games in 1980. Did you own an Atari game? Out sourcing went on before him. I believe a lot of Fords were made in Canada.

Clinton benefited from the dot com explosion. I'm just glad he was business minded. A b-job in the white house would be the least of our problems now.

I agree with you on Bush II, the RINO.

How is the tea party throwing the middle class under the bus? It began with Wall St bailouts.

who says the middle class is even under the bus? and those that are, did they get there by their own accords? check the figures on negative savings for US citizens before the recession, and people buying homes at the edge of their credit limit at obviously hyper-inflated prices...

seems many people took themselves out of the middle class by being economic idiots.

Let's see there has already been an article about how the Clinton's are misappropriating money from their organization in N Y. Who do you think put that out there? Uncle Joe is meeting all over the U S with the money people. Someone keeps leaking bad information on Hillary, and Hillary is being ignored when she does make speeches. She spoke a couple days ago. It was casually mentioned, then dropped. Uncle Joe is everywhere, meeting with Obama, making speeches. 2 different liberal writers on the Sunday shows said they cannot believe Hillary is coming out this early, and how she will just get in Obama's way, and try to overshadow him. Neither one had anything nice to say about the woman.

can you please explain how those funds were misappropriated? or did you actually misunderstand the article you heard someone mention and maybe you read the headline of.

see...when you have proven yourself to be an ignorant fool, no-one believes you understand one single word you parrot. and i keep proving you don't...

this is how rational discourse takes place between real humans.

That's true. Many people bought over their heads anticipating future higher home values. A lot of predator lenders didn't check credit limits or verify incomes. No down payments required.

The Santelli rant was about the government proposal to bail out these mortgages.

pretty stupid to anticipate higher home values when they are already OBVIOUSLY hyper-inflated...

all one had to do was turn to any economic radio show and the talk was of the housing price bubble for a year before it burst...

are predatory lenders just taking advantage of stupid people? how can you not know your own credit limit? or income limit?

oh yeah, it was Obama that threw these people under the bus,.....sheesh!

Do you not know,its been shown to you that the T'ers are the major reason this country is in turmoil today. If they'd kept their damn mouths shut we wouldn't have all this hating and bellyaching and economic turmoil. The T'ers need to go back to their assisted living quarters and leave the rest of us alone.

The richy-rich set up the middle class for economic failure. When the tumble came and the foreclosures started happening and prices plummeted....guess who had the money to buy up everthing at a very low marginal price...then when things started rebounding.....guess who gets the biggest return. Capitialism and greed will do it everytime.

Hillary got this thing...she is weighing her options carefully. There is no Dem. that can beat her if she decides to run, even at the 11th hour. She was promised the Presidency in 2016 if she waited and let Obama make history. Its Hillarys time to make history in 2016 not Biden or any other.

Don't blame Obama for peoples excesses and poor decisions. Greedy Wall Streeters planned the whole damn thing, and got valued insider trading info. so they could benefit from an economic downturn......and counted on the gov't to bail everyone out.

The government you so trust and obey was a part of it. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are government created mortgage companies who knowingly bought these toxic mortgages and passed them on to Wall St. with a government backing. Yea, Wall St. bundled these mortgages and passed them onto the market, that means bailout. One good thing Bush tried to do was investigate Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. He was met with a threat of a filibuster by Chris Dodd, of all people, who was getting sweet heart deals from Country Wide Mortgage, a predatory lender. Yea, we'll roll over and keep our mouths shut. The Communities Reinvestment Act and the repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act made it all possible. One was expanded by Clinton and the other was signed by Clinton and the federal reserve fed it with fiat money.

An example of what you are about is that we can see many colors. and there is wrong with colors that are dulled. So we answer the wrongs with a flag that shoves those colors into every ones faces. and now that flag tells everyone else how to live. So now we all know that two parents of the same sex are much better then the traditional. And of course one parent is superior then the two of traditional ways by progressive agendas. Poor decisions and poor educations where hate from one sex to another is exploited by progressives cause massive feminist hate due to false inequality that is only the true relationship between men and women since time began. Yet somehow religion gets the blame. Well religion has been marginalized in the rich nations that has given women a massive say. And we are in deep chitt. So fellas. Ten million of you are now felons. get your guns. And get from others if you need to survive. You owe nothing.. You deserve everything. Trayvon was a result of this progressive thinking. And Zimmerman was a poor answer for it.

Taking the confederate side is the moral position; they are the tea party of today. The south is the home of calls for limited government and budgeting. Nobody I know hates obama because of the amount of melanin in his skin, but because he has a black heart!

I hope you expand on that one. You'll have all of the drones going off comparing the tea party to the confederacy. Why not try the opposition to King George.

Well ppl need to get slavery out of their heads, the uncivil war had nothing, at the start of it, do do with slavery. Only until 1863 did slavery enter the equation. Basically, the south were fighting for less government intrusion into their lives, and less taxes. Economic reasons were the MAIN reasons for secession.

I see this exact thing playing out today. In 1861 Lincoln initiated crazy protectionist tariffs which heavily crippled the south, while at the same time, benefiting the north. We are now saddled with ObamaCare, which will cripple real Americans, while illegals, as well as Muslims, are exempt from it! I'm not saying that there isn't marxist opposition in the north, but just as in Lincoln's day, obama will hunt all opposition down and lock them up.

The white supremacist groups such as the KKK hijacked the confederate battle flag, in the same way the Nazi's hijacked the swastika.
