Not really a front-runner, obviously, but Julian Castro dropped out today.

Elizabeth Warren is a big fat serial liar. She lied about her heritage, she lied about why she was canned from her teaching position, and she is now lying about the Bernie meeting. This is only my guess and my opinion.

You cannot run for the office of the president without being a gigantic Goddamn liar.

It's part of the job description.

That's a horrible thing to say.





Everyone knows it's true, but a horrible thing to say.

Hey, if the president has to be dishonest, it is left to us to be honest.

I mean, seriously, what kind of person wants to be president? You basically have to give up integrity and anything resembling dignity, just to be in charge of a perpetually fucked up mess that cannot be fixed.

That takes amorality, dishonestly, and a certain level of stupidity.

Good pension plan, great fringe benefits, and for the first lady those secret service guys are kind of hunky.

If ads served up to me on social media mean anything, this is a race between Trump and Bloomberg, and Bloomberg is going to win. By a landslide.

Isn't he the nut who limited the size of soft drinks people could buy in NYC?

ETA: Meh, I've seen pictures of his daughters. If Ivanka stays, Trump still gets the dirty old man vote.

Trump states multiple lies far more egregious and daily. If criticizing anybody for lying (if honest), then your every post criticizes The Don. A benchmark for corrupt lying.

He lies so often that any discussion of liars must always discuss the worst - The Don.

Nobody cares what her heritage is - except wacko extremists - who also lied about a birthing movement. And knew they were lying. Why do you not apologize for that lie?

Nothing matters until after Iowa. History repeatedly demonstrates it.

It matters, it just doesn't reveal itself until after Iowa.

Right now the momentum seems to be with Bernie. He could lose if he completely alienates the middle and young people don't turnout. I think he'd win unless voter suppression is super effective.
