WaPo Couldn't Even Wait for an Opponent in Declaring Trump Must Lose.

    No one expected the Washington Post to endorse Donald Trump, but before an opponent is anointed, the WaPo is out declaring Mr. Trump a unique threat to Democracy, and unfit for the Presidency.
    All of this dovetails with the Hillary Clinton strategy of winning by scaring the crap out of voters, as her numbers don't justify a win.

Hillary Clinton doesn't need any strategy to scare the hell out of voters. Trump is doing fine all on his own.

Well anyways, this is one of the funniest things I’ve read during this presidential campaign:

“The George Harrison estate blasted the use of his hit "Here Comes the Sun" Thursday night as Ivanka Trump took the stage.

"The unauthorized use of #HereComestheSun at the #RNCinCLE is offensive & against the wishes of the George Harrison estate," the estate tweeted late Thursday, as the RNC wrapped up in Cleveland.

The estate followed up with another tweet suggesting a more pessimistic song from Harrison's post-Beatles repertoire: "If it had been Beware of Darkness, then we MAY have approved it! #TrumpYourself.”

This is what has been going on since the beginning. The Dannie media, like the dan himself, is in lockstep for the lying Pants Suit. The bias has been astounding. Not since 1930's Germany has media been more in the bag for one side. And not since then have so many who call themselves patriots drank so much of the party line puke. If we get a president who is a known criminal, there will be no credibility left in our government. We're there already. But to the dannies, that's just fine.

????

did you listen to trump's speech at all? the whole essence of what he's doing is to whip up fear (of muslims, brown people, etc.) in the electorate. clinton and the wapo are just reacting sensibly and appropriately to the threat he poses. we should not be signing up for an authoritarian demagogue.
.
and clinton's numbers most certainly do justify a win. the way you can tell this is that her polling numbers are bigger than anyone else's. it's not complicated.

What's the surprise with Washington Post? Take a look at the anti Trump headlines the WaPo runs daily -- no mystery here! Like the NYT the Washington Post thinks they are the moral authority that has to dedicate all their efforts to defeat Trump this election. Please!

Of course they see nothing wrong with Hillary Clinton who just betrayed Bernie Sanders whole progressive Wing by picking Sen. Tim Kaine. Sen. Kaine is as tight with Wall Street, who supposedly nixed Sen. Elizabeth Warren and advocated for Tim Kaine.

Klemcrat, she is in the lead, but by a sliver. And again, these polls are run by media groups as much in the bag for your beloved party as you are, as it were. Just like the golf course hero, you're not complicated either.

Many Republican Party leaders are already working to minimize losses in Congressional races to protect the party's power base in the wake of a Trump electoral debacle. And Republicans with aspirations for higher office (e.g., Ted Cruz) are positioning themselves for the nomination in 2020 and 2024. Disunity at the Republican convention suggests that many Republican voters can and will distinguish between Donald Trump and down ballot Republicans. The best hope for the Republican Party, and its conservative core values, is a blow-out loss by Trump. Even then it will take many election cycles to make the party relevant again at the national level.

How much is a sliver 850? What polls are you referring to? Care to share, or are you making things up again? :D

reality-denying republicans said exactly the same thing in 2012, and i don't think we need to review how that worked out. the first one you need to stop bullshitting is yourself, discouraged dimwit.
