Well that and the inherent sexism plus 25 years of attacks.  She didn't do herself any favors as a campaigner, but that's not the only reason she lost.

There's a reason that Democrats have always shied away from attacking potential voters, it always backfires.  Obama's "cling bitterly" comment was a lot more nuanced and less objectionable than what Hillary said (which was essentially a flat-out diss) and it still hurt him.  Any "deplorable" you can turn or get to stay home on election day is a win for you, and if you say something like that you're going to make people double down on your opponent and motivate them to show up at the polls.

I'll never give a dime to the DNC so long as Schumer is in a leadership position.  I many not even vote.  They don't care.  Funny how that works.

It's really hard to start missing Hillary when she never goes away.

Won what? A popularity contest where all the illegals in New York and Californicator can vote?

That is what she won?

Because she did not win the presidency, and we are 100000x  better off without her.

What's the point of this? Trump won by cheating. He broke just about every election rule we have. If Jerry Jones said, "Fark the salary cap, I'm paying $1 billion this year" he'd probably win a lot of games too.
 
2017-07-23 03:19:29 PM  
Yeah.

All those guys who lost to Lance Armstrong should just look in the mirror.
 
2017-07-23 03:19:50 PM  
In all seriousness, it's a bit of both. She didn't do herself a lot of favors on the campaign trail but the deck was a bit stacked with voter ID laws in places like NC that specifically targeted minorities as well as the hacking of voter rolls and convenient purges of the voter rolls. Both narratives have some points.

That said, it's time to focus on taking down the shiatgibbon.

Oh fark that. These threads are constantly full of people who lament that Democrats have no spine, and then when someone does something even mildly controversial we get this hand wringing "oh they're right but they shouldn't have said it."

Hillary Clinton was 100% correct in her statement. Trump's core supporters were and continue to be a coalition of racists, anti-Semites and neo-Nazis, and instead of having her back for calling the situation what it was we had people on this site doing this "oh we mustn't offend the delicate rednecks" dance, because somehow we have to tolerate open fascism and not hurt its feelings.

Hillary Clinton was not a perfect candidate but she was far better than the popular post-mortem gives her credit for. Whether the Democrats should have nominated someone with a quarter century of slander against her, that even supposed Democratic voters are swayed by, is a fair question. But the problem continues to be deeper than her.

Schumer embodies the middle-of-the-road message-less bullshiat the DNC has to offer even more than Nancy Pelosi right now. He is the face of an uninspiring party. That message does not work, and you can keep blaming liberals for it, but the fact is that the Democratic party with this kind of centrist bullshiat isn't appealing TO ANYONE. If they were actually winning it would be different, we could talk about making ideological compromises. But they ARE. NOT. WINNING. So fark it, we need some new blood.

Jesus.  Really, Chuck?  Like there are no other factors here?

Pennsylvania has 18 congressional seats.  Republicans won 53.9% of the vote for those seats, and have 13 of them.  Democrats got 45.7% of the vote, and have 5 seats.  53.9% gets you 72.%, and 45.7% gets you 27.8%.  Guess the problem was with 3 Democratic losers and not gerrymandering, eh, Chuckie?


Ohio has 16 seats.  Repubs won 58.2% and have 75% of the seats, Dems won 41.8% and have 25% of the seats.  Care to tell THOSE three Dem losers it was their personalities and not gerrymandering, Chuckie?

The outrage over her "deplorables" comment should be greeted with guffaws.

I have been called more names as a liberal than I can count.  I have been called mentally ill, a traitor,  a moonbat, etc for 30 years.

Yet somehow I am the snowflake, while right wingers got their panties in a bunch over being called deplorables.

You're not wrong, that's just the power of gerrymandering for you.  Even without the gerrymandering, the structure of our government with a bicameral legislature, where each state gets two senators, that means Democrats will always have to tread lightly when it comes to disparaging people.  You're not going to turn the deep red states blue, but you could split the Senate seats.  You can't afford to turn off half or less than half of the electorate when that part of the electorate controls more than half of the governorships and Senate seats.

And it does matter, the Republicans are dangerously close to having enough control to brute-force Constitutional amendments.

8.5/10. Good use of the "illegals" voting and the California bashing. Minus .5 for no email mention. Minus .5 for lack of punctuation errors. Minus .5 for not using enough zeroes on your figure of how much better off we are with the trumpster fire.

Over all a fairly strong effort. Especially in light of what we've seen from the trolls lately.
 
2017-07-23 03:25:23 PM  
The headline is trolling by adding "Hillary" to the quote. It's clear from the context he was being critical of Democrats including himself in their handling of the election, not attacking Clinton.

I predicted Trump would win the presidency in 2015 right after he announced.

And kept that prediction

Remember, I was one who said, you all need to practice "President Donald J. Trump"

I was right, while you are all wrong. I was right about a lot on here. Well, maybe except for a prediction in 2012 after Sandy, I stated Chris Christie would be the next President, but then again, all of you were predicting Hillary. But that was back in 2012.

"So what did we do wrong? People didn't know what we stood for, just that we were against Trump. And still believe that."
