    On Urban View radio this morning, there was an exchange between radio host Joe Madison and a black voter. This voter basically outlined why he could not vote for Bloomberg. Spoke to stop and frisk as well as other issues of when he was mayor of NYC.

    Madison said, “if it comes down to Bloomberg or Trump, who are you voting for?”

    “Trump.”

    Madison blew up. At the end, asked why?

    “With 45, I know what I have. Don’t like him personally, but like the economy.”

    Trump will win in a landslide.

    In a Telemundo event, Jorge Ramos asked Steyer, Klobuchar and Mayor Cheat if they knew el nombre del Presidente de Mexico
    Steyer -- “I forget”
    Klobuchar -- “No."
    But Mayor Peter knew.

    One of the Castro brothers didn’t know that corn was used to make tortillas in Mexico. He was at a fuel conference and didn’t understand why Mexicans are opposed to corn-based ethanol in gasoline because it affects the price of tortillas.

    Castro doesn't understand how government policy affects economics negatively. Hm. I think I am having deja vu.

    I have to admit, candidates not knowing the name of the President of Mexico doesn't bother me, as long as they don't act like they are long time friends a year later.

    Amy Klobuchar is on the Judiciary Subcommittee on Border Security and Immigration. It's kinda pathetic that she wouldn't know.

    ¡Ay, dios mío! How is it possible to not know that?

    When Geraldo Ford ate a tamale with the husk still on in San Antonio (i think it was San Antonio), the media went bananas - I think there was even an SNL skit about it. On this, el sonido del silencio.

    When Sarah Palin was running as VP, it was a very important that they catch her in one of these sort of things. Remember her walk with Katie Couric? -- "Who is the vice secretary of dog-catching in Pakistan?" They made an entire HBO thing about that and somebody won an emmy for trashing Palin. The audience rejoiced.

    They tried to do the same thing with GW Bush. Catch him in something to show he was as stupid as they had telling everyone he was. But it turned out W had higher SAT scores than "liberal genius" Bill Bradley, Harvard's Al Gore and even Obama (which I will keep saying until Obama releases his SAT/LSAT/transcripts to disprove it, something he always refused to do). Until then W has a higher IQ than Obama.

    But it's pretty unusual for a liberal to try to catch a fellow liberal in this sort of trap. Was Ramos targeting those 3 candidates? If so, who is his preferred candidate?

    So here is how (or one of the ways how) Bloomberg bought his way onto the Dem debate stage.

    Contrary to some media reports, Bloomberg is courting big-money donors.
    But what he is doing different is telling them to give the money to the DNC, instead of his campaign.

    And thus, magically, the DNC then changed its debate rules to help Bloomberg

    I guess it bothers no Democrat since they dont talk about it. You guys and your party are for sale to the highest bidder and you dont care. But the rest of us wont forget it.

    Is it too early to make an airplane banner that reads: "Bloomberg Didn't Kill Himself?"

    Anyone that would put Hillary on their ticket is too dumb to be a President.

    Why? How smart would it be to be the only person standing in her way of being president knowing she would bump you off in a heartbeat. :yikes:

    Good Grief. Bernie is such a loser
    " Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders said Monday his parents would never have thought their son would end up in the Senate and running for president. No kidding. He was a ne’er-do-well into his late 30s.
    espite a prestigious degree, however, Sanders failed to earn a living, even as an adult. It took him 40 years to collect his first steady paycheck -- and it was a government check.
    Sanders took his first bride to live in a maple sugar shack with a dirt floor, and she soon left him. Penniless, he went on unemployment. Then he had a child out of wedlock. Desperate, he tried carpentry but could barely sink a nail. “He was a shi**y carpenter,” a friend told Politico Magazine. “His carpentry was not going to support him, and didn’t.”

    Then he tried his hand freelancing for leftist rags, writing about "masturbation and rape” and other crudities for $50 a story. He drove around in a rusted-out, Bondo-covered VW bug with no working windshield wipers. Friends said he was "always poor" and his “electricity was turned off a lot.” They described him as a slob who kept a messy apartment -- and this is what his friends had to say about him.

    The only thing he was good at was talking … non-stop … about socialism and how the rich were ripping everybody off. “The whole quality of life in America is based on greed,” the bitter layabout said. “I believe in the redistribution of wealth in this nation.”

    So he tried politics, starting his own socialist party. Four times he ran for Vermont public office, and four times he lost -- badly. He never attracted more than single-digit support -- even in the People’s Republic of Vermont. In his 1971 bid for U.S. Senate, the local press said the 30-year-old "Sanders describes himself as a carpenter who has worked with 'disturbed children.’ ” In other words, a real winner."

    In other words he was a millennial before the current generation/No wonder they identify with him

    It would appear Biden is not the answer to that question either.

    Here Jorge Ramos also asks Joe Biden about the "cages" he and Obama started as a tool to deal with the flood of minors to the border Obama created. I cant rmbr anyone else in the MSM asking on the Dems about this

    The current situation in the Democratic primary just gets more comical by the day. Given the recently discovered recordings of Bloomberg making un-PC comments, the Dems are basically choosing between a socialist and a Donald Trump clone. LMAO!

    Yep. It's pretty sad when we have to be rely on an America-hating tool like Ramos to ask Democrats serious questions.

    Trump doesnt have to pay an outside "consultant" to get inside Dems' heads -- he lives there rent free

    This wasn't like a surprise quiz. This was at an event dealing with Mexico.
    And get this -- she is on the "Subcommittee on Border Security and Immigration"
    LOL

    Perhaps Bloomberg should come out with a pay scale for your vote?
    He can afford it

    Example:
    White, Male, 45-55 yrs old, college-educated, advanced degree, registered voter in Florida = $20,000
    Much less for California
    But perhaps even more for a white, male registered voter in Texas?
    Does this give any of you any ideas?

    I seems like the media brings this idea up every 4 years. Maybe it will finally happen, but I suspect the DNC will decide who it wants and make that happen. Much like the CCP or Kremlin does.
