Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, September 22, 2016

ORLANDO -- Hillary Clinton gave voice Wednesday to a question on the minds of many of her fiercest advocates in her race against the controversy-prone Donald Trump: Why isn't she way, way ahead?

The Democratic nominee raised the issue here during an address via video conference to a gathering in Las Vegas of the Laborers' International Union of North America.

The former secretary of state ticked off her pro-union positions, including investing in infrastructure, raising the minimum wage and supporting collective bargaining.

She doesn't know?

"Having said all this, ‘Why aren't I 50 points ahead?' you might ask?" Clinton said.

Because you're a Wall Street whore who voted for the Iraq boondoggle and who's only saving grace is that you're facing possibly the worst candidate in the history of nation.

The number was facetious. She knows "50 points ahead" is an absurd amount. The country is so polarized that an enraged decrepit hairpiece could get 40 percent if it was the Republican nominee.

Here is the answer Rcade. Read it and ---- weep will you. Because she's a Wall Street whore who voted for the Iraq boondoggle and who's only saving grace is that you're facing possibly the worst candidate in the history of nation. And not only that a corrupt, lying, scum bag garbage if this nation ever saw one.

Hillary is no worse than any recent SoS and better than some. She is a known quantity and well respected by colleges and international leaders.
Trump is a scumbag conman who is respected by no one with a clue.

This does show the power of the reich-wing hate machine and the gullibility of GOP rubes.

Bored,

"Why aren't I 50 points ahead""

Because over 50% of the American public doesn't trust you?

This is the worst election I have ever witnessed, and I have been around for 15 of them and voted in nine, except for the three when I was overseas, those votes seldom get counted anyway. There was a two party system in place before the Ds and Rs, It was the Democrat,(pro-slave party) and the Wigs,(pro mercantile, pro bank party). The rise of the middle class brought the Republican party, Yeoman farmers and shop owners, factory workers and laborers, all profoundly anti-slavery. Founded in 1854, won the presidency in 1860, the downside was the civil war. The north points to slavery, but the south pointed to the Morel Acts. Didn't matter much, they didn't like each other much anyway. War was inevitable after 1850. Don't say it couldn't happen again. We are just as polarized, hate is just as rampant. The ones that will lose are the ones who live in a state of dependency and this is not 1860. Trump is just a symptom of something much deeper.

If that were true we would believe all of Hillary's lies and that would make her the better choice.

She's not too far ahead because she's no better than Trump.

She was a good U.S. senator and first lady as well. She's the most qualified candidate to run for president in a long time.

"Clinton: Why aren't I 50 points ahead?"

Because even the "Clinton Machine" can no longer hide that 1) she is in fact, the most corrupt person to run for POTUS in most of our lifetimes, 2) she can't promise anybody that things will get better (hope and change) because doing so would be admitting that Obama has been a failure (can't do that), 3) she's just not proven to be anything but a whore for the status quo and an unlikable person.

Anthony Weiner is a great dad and the most qualified to babysit your young daughter. That doesn't make him a good choice for my daughter. How about yours?

"If you do know somebody who might be voting for Trump, stage an intervention," Clinton pleaded with her remote audience. "Try to talk some sense into them. Lay out the facts. The facts are on our side, about what I've done versus what he's done. Remember, friends don't let friends vote for Trump."

He's still in contention because the media has made him acceptable.

"I don't care what the newspapers say about me as long as they spell my name right."

Corky, do you see the desperation in that quote from Hillary?

No, just in your posts.

LOL. Is that what all the articles on the front page of the DR say?
