An interesting article on how #obamagate is a dumb idea:
Agreed. Even as someone now questioning whether I can vote for any Democrat at any level of office, I am very turned off by this attempt to blame Obama. It's childish, inaccurate, and frankly racist. Blame China. Blame the WHO. Blame the Democratic governors. All of that is justifiable, whether you agree with it or not. Blaming Obama is disingenuous and crass.An interesting article on how #obamagate is a dumb idea:
the Montco instructions may not be the best, but having filled out and mailed my Lehigh County ballot yesterday, it's very clear on the ballot which oval corresponds to Uncle Joe. Which I filled out with gusto, the same way I will in November.In Montgomery County, PA absentee ballots were mailed with the wrong instructions. https://www.inquirer.com/politics/e...a-absentee-ballots-instructions-20200518.html
“Refrain from making negative statements about other candidates, party leaders, Campaigns, Campaign staffers, supporters, news organizations or journalists. This Campaign is about the issues and finding solutions to America’s problems,” said the social media policy sent to some delegates. “Our job is to differentiate the senator from his opponents on the issues — not through personal attacks.”
“Do your best to avoid online arguments or confrontations,” the policy said. “If engaging in an adversarial conversation, be respectful when addressing opposing viewpoints or commenting on the opposition.”
“When delegates attend the Democratic convention, they will be representing Sen. Sanders, the ideas he ran on and the millions of working people who supported his campaign,” Sanders campaign spokesman Mike Casca said in a statement. “That is a serious responsibility and we’re asking them to follow a basic code of conduct while carrying out that duty.”
The Sanders campaign wants supporters/delegates to enter an agreement barring attacks on other candidates, party leaders, confrontations on social media and giving media interviews without approval.
Me too.I am seriously impressed. Nice job, Bernie.
"Oh, yes, I remember Amy from high school. She used to insist that everyone call her Elena -- even in Chemistry class!"
She should be vetted at the very least as a courtesy. She was the first contender to drop out and endorse Biden - and she did so right before her home state primary, which she would have won. Furthermore, she swung the state from Sanders (who was polling neck in neck with her) to Biden.I know that it's been reported that donors/members of the party want Klobuchar and maybe the MSM wants her, too, but is she really that popular otherwise? Don't they do polling? Is she really polling that well that it's worth the effort of going through a vetting process?
I think she's popular enough. I say vet all 12 because time's a wasting! You don't want to vet only a handful, say 3, and find out all 3 have stuff in their background that is disqualifying and now you have to start over.I know that it's been reported that donors/members of the party want Klobuchar and maybe the MSM wants her, too, but is she really that popular otherwise?

Actually Clyburn at least is not.He owes Rep. Clyburn and the black voters of South Carolina a lot more than he owes Amy, and they are insisting on a black VP or at least a woman of color.
Defense lawyers in California are reviewing criminal cases in which Tara Reade, the former Senate aide who has accused Joseph R. Biden Jr. of sexual assault, served as an expert witness on domestic violence, concerned that she misrepresented her educational credentials in court....
But lawyers who had faced off against her in court began raising questions about the legitimacy of her testimony, and the verdicts that followed, after news reports this week that Antioch University had disputed her claim of receiving a bachelor’s degree from its Seattle campus.
Hey, they’re good at it, “Look! It only took me a week and the package says ‘4 years and up!’”No. But Trump sells anything that can be produced for peanuts and sold for $35.
I see by the article, he is selling a 200-piece Trump jigsaw puzzle. Clearly, he does not think much of his supporters' puzzling ability.
I know; I remember that article too. But Clyburn at other times has been insistent that the VP be a woman of color.Actually Clyburn at least is not.
