Domenech: Hillary Clinton's Outrage At Modest Attacks A "Sign Of How Weak Of A Candidate She Is"

BEN DOMENECH: It is amazing to me the thickness of the bubble that has surrounded Hillary throughout this entire process. And even these modest attacks on her are interpreted by all of her allies as being something completely out of the realm, something completely inappropriate. That’s just a sign of how weak of a candidate that she is. At the end of the day, Bernie Sanders is on track to win 40% of the popular vote in the Democratic party. The only person in the history of the party in the modern era who has had that happen and then not become the nominee was Hillary Clinton in 2008. That shows her weakness. … Read entire article »

BECK: These guys actually believe it like we believe it. Imagine being in a position to where you believe it, you believe the country is at the end, you believe that God is telling you, ‘Step up to the plate.’ You believe that you, just like Moses, may be slow in speech and not the perfect guy, but you know if you get in there, you can actually do something and you’ve tried to stay loyal. Do you know what that life is like for two years of tearing yourself apart, … Read entire article »

Obama Weekly Address: "Build An Economy" Where Everybody Has Fair Shot, Pays Fair Share

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Hi everybody. Over the past seven years, we haven’t just been recovering from crisis, we’ve been rebuilding our economy on a new foundation for growth – growth that benefits everybody, not just folks at the top.

RNC: Liberals 'can't stomach' Clinton's constant contradictions

Daniel Chaitin The Republican National Committee reacted Saturday to Sen. Bernie Sanders’ victory in Wyoming’s caucus by barely mentioning him. RNC Chairman Reince Priebus focused on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, noting that she lost a seventh straight contest. “This embarrassing string of defeats to a 74-year old socialist from Vermont is another reminder of what a desperately flawed candidate she is, and how beatable she will be in November if she becomes the nominee,” said Priebus in a statement. “Liberals can’t stomach her constant contradictions: raising money from the very groups she pretends to attack while flip… examinerpolitics.com … Read entire article »
