    This 65 year old white girl has this to say: don’t tell me there isn’t “white privilege”. Just saw Sanders talk about Hillary getting nervous. Can you imagine if PBO had said anything like that in 2007?

      Sanders is a piece of work.

        He’s a nasty little man who has no clue or interest in how the world or politics really works. What has he actually accomplished?

            I wonder if, when he isn’t able to deliver all of his promises on Day One, his rabid supporters will turn on him like they did on PBO.

            Just asking.

          At least 3 callers called in to the Stephanie Miller show and mentioned how wrong Sanders were, about the statement he made about PBO not engaging the American people this morning. Stephanie and Chris were clueless and did not believe he said it.

          • 29 57andfemale
            September 11, 2015 at 3:02 pm

            and he said it AGAIN. The nasty little liar. Even after tweet after tweet of corrections. And the tone-deafness of him, apparently never listening to a damned thing PBO actually said.

            How could Stephanie and Chris not know this? It happened a few days ago, and then again yesterday.

      I wonder if Bernie is our Rand/Ron Paul of our party having extreme unrealistic ideas of how to run the government?

      • 31 57andfemale
        September 12, 2015 at 9:32 am

        On a lot of things he isn’t crazy – just very progressive. A couple of loony ideas: seriously, you’re going to remake corporate culture with sheer will? Get rid of corporations? That’s more Nader than Ron Paul. And the notion that ALL trade deals are BAd – okay, that’s delusional.

        Most of his platform is solid progressive economics. What concerns me is that nothing else matters to him: race, foreign policy (only how it affects the economy). He has no nuance. And it should bother the entire party that he could have worked within the Dems to get better Dems elected. He never even tried. As I watch his campaign unfold I understand better his childish approach to leadership: He thinks if you yell you get your way. PBO didn’t yell, and if he had yelled more everything would have been magically different. He would be destroyed immediately if he ever got to the WH – he has no use for working with people. The word from the reporters is that he is that grumpy and nasty all the time. Sure he’s harnessing anger that’s out there right now, but he is a selfish child at the notion that you have to play multiple games to get results. He’s been screaming for 40 years. He lives in a Vermont bubble. He doesn’t care about urban issues unless a job will solve all the problems. He is not presidential material.

    and she is gone. too many unforced errors and vinci took advantage.

  15. September 11, 2015 at 2:58 pm

    And now let the Serena hate flow. I imagine many “Americans” are happy that Serena lost to an Italian.

    I see that other semi too was an upset with halep losing.

    This tennis is some bullshit. I think the change in schedule due to this rain yesterday threw off both Halep and Serena.

    The two current finalists are flukes…. But I wish them well, and may the better player win tomorrow.

    • 52 amk for obama
      September 11, 2015 at 3:04 pm

      nah, schedule has got nothing to do with it. serena lost her serene today. I don’t know what happened after the 1st set which she blasted away.

      gunnite folks. Hope fedex wins later today.

        It’s not just Serena. Halep also lost – when she was expected to win. As #1 and #2 they were both under an incredible amount of pressure that the other two semi-finalists just weren’t under. I still contend that they were both thrown off…

    September 11, 2015 at 3:07 pm

    Unfortunately……this is why it is called a Game.
    It is always those who are considered the underdogs that will always over perform to win when they are Never expected to win.
    I will bet that Vinic has never beaten Serena at this level before.

    • 56 hopefruit2
      September 11, 2015 at 3:17 pm

      There’s little to no pressure on the underdogs…they feel that they’ve already accomplished more than they set out to, so they go into the Game with high confidence and very little nerves. Staying at the top is much harder than getting there!

    Like Pat Riley said when it comes to basketball, there is either winning or misery.

    I’m with the First Lady, she tweeted some lovely words to Serena, I am proud of Serena too. What she did this year was amazing. She still is the best and will go down in history as the best female tennis player ever.

    POTUS is once again giving amazing answers to good questions during this townhall TroopTalk meeting.

    He astounds me – every day

  25. September 11, 2015 at 3:26 pm

    they only ‘sucker’ the media because Jeb speaks in FRANK LUNTZ-APPROVED LANGUAGE….and the MSM can hide behind that.

    I don’t know how many times I have to say this….

    But, that’s the problem they have with Trump.

    Jeb’s financial plan is everything his brother did, PLUS
    Privatizing Social Security and Medicare.

    But, because he’s a supposed ‘ Grown Up’, the Villagers don’t tell THE TRUTH about what he wants to do.

      And yet Bush will convince those that live by a thread to vote for him, because nothing says America like agreeing to get skull-fucked.

      Thank you, meta. I loved the way our President combined his personal experience (especially the image of him giving Sasha a bottle) with the larger message of the day. He is so masterful in his answers to any question and very generous to others as in his compliment to GW Bush. He never needs to diminish someone else in order to make himself seem bigger because he’s an evolved, adult human being who is fully confident in himself. There is not one person in the GOP presidential clown car who doesn’t look like a spoiled child next to him.
