… BUT CAN HE KEEP THE FIRES “BERNING?”
Hillary Clinton “felt the Bern,” alright … and now there’s smoke coming from her 2016 presidential campaign.
The presumed Democratic frontrunner – who is staring down an FBI probe over the alleged mishandling of classified information on her private email server – was thoroughly trounced by independent socialist U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders in New Hampshire this week.
Sanders pummeled Clinton by a twenty-point margin … well beyond the 13.3 percent edge he received according to the final aggregate polling data out of New Hampshire (as compiled by RealClearPolitics).
With nearly ninety percent of precincts reporting, Sanders was getting an even 60 percent of the vote compared to Clinton’s 38.4 percent – a drubbing that followed a virtual tie between the two candidates in early-voting Iowa last week.
Clinton was supposed to win Iowa handily. In fact as recently as late November she enjoyed a 20-point lead in the Hawkeye State.
It didn’t hold … nor did her New Hampshire advantage.
A year ago, Clinton enjoyed a fifty-point lead over Sanders in the Granite State – where she narrowly defeated then-U.S. Senator Barack Obama in 2008. But Sanders took the lead from her last summer – and his insurgent bid held on for a win that has shaken the Democratic establishment to its core.
“Tonight, we have sent a message that will echo from Wall Street to Washington, from Maine to California,” Sanders said.
He added that the Clinton machine would likely unload on him with fresh ferocity as the campaign progressed.
“They are throwing everything at me except the kitchen sink and I have the feeling that the kitchen sink is coming pretty soon as well,” Sanders said.
Despite her humiliating defeat in New Hampshire, Clinton should still pull out a big win in early-voting South Carolina – which is not exactly fertile ground for a Jewish socialist like Sanders.
Of course the 53.7 percent advantage she enjoyed as recently as last November has shrunk to less than 30 percent …
Bernie needs a decent showing in SC. Don’t think he can pull it off, as you say too much of a socialist.
Wish him good luck, in the end Bernie is not really that good for this country. It’s just that Hillary is is so damned bad.
NH losers in history – 1992 – Bill Clinton, 2000 George W Bush, 2008 Barak Obama.
Times are changing and it’s not just “R” against “D” it’s also “R” against “R” and “D” against “D”. I don’t think anyone knows how this will end, especially the pollsters and pundits.
9-11 is the catalyst that started the change, at first it pulled us together. Then it started pushing us apart, controversial laws were passed from the Patriot Act to the Affordable Care Act. Presidents used Executive Orders to circumvent Congress and the law suits began. Trust eroded, gridlock became the order of the day. Placing the blame for gridlock on one party is short sighted and intellectually dishonest.
Elections bring out the best and the worst in We the People. We have been surviving the process since George Washington and we will survive this one. Things may not look the same as they have in the past but that is always the way it is.
It doesn’t really matter how well either of them do in SC because neither will carry SC in Nov.
Hillary supporters in SC are made up of middle aged women with no understanding of money (sorry to sound sexist). Bernie Sanders supporters are made up of young people with no understanding of money. It will boil down to who shows up at the polls.
NH was a given, the guy represents Vermont after all. SC will probably go to Hillary. Beyond that I don’t know what will happen. Still pulling for my main man Bernie though! LMAO!!!
I think the Burn is over. It’s all downhill from here for the Bernster – sorry.
I hope you’re wrong!
We shall see. Just sayin’ – Bernito has mobilized a lot of younger voters – who trend more liberal. But in the end Hillary-ous has the center.
I remember when everyone was so sure Hillary was going to win last time. Barack Obama ran away with her nomination.
Well actually it went to June, so wasn’t a runaway. But, in that case Obama had HUGE support and sums of money. Bernard will not have that cash flow, nor the organization. She will dispatch of Bernard by end of March.
Wait, I thought Monica smoked Slick Willy (Clinton not Folks)?!? What does Hillary have to smoke? gag, I can’t believe I even thought of that hack, glurg…must drink bleach…
I could care less about the Dims but it really scares me that so many young people have fallen for the lie of socialism. Instead of “Ask not what your country can do for you . Ask what can I do for my country.” has been turned on it’s ear. We are in the gimmie gimmie years.
They hear “free college” and they vote. The young pp don’t have the mentality of “Ask what I can do for my country.” They have no concept of the fact that “Free Government Money = We Pay More Taxes.”
Well in fairness I guess they are more focused on more cuts to education means they pay more. So while you are voting to cut your taxes and increase the cost of their tuition they are voting to cut the cost of their tuition and raise your taxes (well actually the taxes of people who make more than 275k a year, but lets not quibble).
Repugnuts pretty much are just greedy bastards who want someone else to to for the country so they don’t have to.
Feel the Bern!
Wait till Hillary starts passing out the walk around money in SC. Blacks wont go for “Hymie from Hymietown,” to quote the Reverend Jackson.
Bernie must have a pretty big bong.
“Bernie Sanders smoked Hillary Clinton”! Wow man, bet that was some bad shit. Tripping on this worse than the acid me and flower child use to do back at Woodstock….Damn!
college tuitiion is ridiculously high . young people should boycott all universities . the parents would also have a vested interest in this if they can stand jr. cohabitating with for an extended period of time.the colleges would change there tune real quick. people have the power not the univ.put it back on the colleges

“not exactly fertile ground for a Jewish socialist like Sanders.”
Jewish has nothing to do with it, Socialist has a whole lot to do with it.
