    We're back to the fake story line the Hillaristas are trying to sell: that she's the ONLY candidate who can win and that she will win easily.

    If we buy these lies, we are setting ourselves up to be suckers.

    Who is this powerful, wide-appeal Republican who can beat a Kirsten Gillibrand or Brian Schweitzer or Martin O'Malley?

    Oh right, the charismatic, wonderful, flawless, lovable, fearful Chris Christie who is NOT going to be the nominee unless the GOP completely overhauls itself in the next year and repudiates its far-right masters.

    Perry? Santorum? Cruz? Paul?

    People, open your eyes and stop quaking in your damn boots, OK?

    •  I've never... (3+ / 0-)

      been called a "Hillarista" before...you really don't know what you're talking about there. Calling me a liar, too, when I'm only stating an opinion no less valid than yours...nice.

      The VRA is gutted, that's a fact.

      Hillary can win the votes of White Southerners that none of those others ever could.

      In polls, Hillary defeats those guys you mention...even Christie.

      The others are at best competitive with most of them, and Christie cleans everyone else's clock.

    •  Hillarista already? (0+ / 0-)

      It's going to be a Loooong way to the nomination folks. Looks like it ain't gonna be pretty, either.

    •  As much as I fear Scott Walker being in the WH (0+ / 0-)

      ...the only reason he has approval ratings in the low 50's in Wisconsin is because the mainstream media in Wisconsin is in the tank for him (at least for now). Walker would need a national news media climate similar to the local news media climate he currently has in his home state to have any chance of winning a general election for president.

      Chris Christie is the only potential Republican presidential candidate who could get national news media outlets like CNN, ABC, and CBS to be in the tank for him, however, he has virtually zero chance of winning his own party's presidential nomination. Any Republican presidential nominee is going to have FOX News in their corner.
