Jan 6 dwightmoodyforgetsthings commented on Hillary Clinton To Run For President of New York City?.
@30- As @32 points out the voting population got larger and Hillary got less votes. The Left is opposed to Hillary playing a big role in in the Democratic party because they want to win elections and get things done. If Hillary is a "real Democrat" then it definitely is time for the fake Democrats to take over because the real ones are literally losers.

@3 FTW. Jayapal is showing the Democrats how to act like they wanna do something besides cower. Thank goodness we got someone with chutzpah into office.

@23- I didn't say she wasn't powerful. I said she's unpopular. That two terms aren't mutually exclusive. Mrs. Clinton has the power to drive down voter turnout for the Democrats. Progressives didn't spend more time attacking Clinton than Trump, Clintonites spent all their time attacking progressives and Trump and never managed to present a convincing case why anyone should vote for Clinton aside from "You've heard of her." I've also heard of Snookie, you need to come up with more than name recognition, which is the only positive you've named for Clinton so far.

And I remember W's first term very well, a non-stop wave of capitulation from the Democrats who kept blaming their failures on Nader. I remember Ms. Clinton voting for the Iraq War, I remember it all. Do you? Because you seem to have a very distorted idea of what happened. Failing to see what was coming this election makes you, Clinton, Savage and the whole moderate leadership of the Democratic Party completely unqualified to do what you continue to do, which is run the Left into the ground.

@19- "The nation asked for Gore and got Bush. They asked for Clinton and got Trump. "

Half the nation didn't bother showing up, about a quarter asked for Clinton (and not with a huge amount of enthusiasm) and slightly less than that asked for Trump (with more enthusiasm). That's about 3/4s that didn't ask for Clinton.

She's not a popular figure. She's a burden to progressive causes. Maybe she ought not to be, maybe 3/4s of America (plus the "hold your nose for Hillary" types like me) are just wrong about Clinton. Doesn't matter, that's the reality and it's not changing.

Hillary's retirement is due. She can consult for the banks or whatever, I'm sure they'll give her some consolation gigs that'll keep the lights on.

As a former Upstate New Yorker...please no. She did OK as a Senator, bur very few people like her and a lot of people resented her carpetbagging into New York politics. She drives down voter turnout, I hope the Democratic Party has figured that out.

@16- Did you mean to reply to me, because I don't see how anything you said was a response to what I said.

@8- 50% of people who could have voted didn't. There are millions of voters who support progressive policies (even if they don't identify as progressives, liberals, or even Democrats) and they are totally reachable. Milquetoast centrism is not going to bring them to the polls, as the last election demonstrated.
Jan 5 dwightmoodyforgetsthings commented on GoFundMe Is Helping Pay for Milo Yiannopoulos's Tour of Hate.
The defense of Milo is (evidently) "half of it's a joke".

That is a joke of a defense.

Also the fact GoFundMe exists (to some extent) by taking 5% off the donations people make crowdfunding medical treatments and such is so fucking sad. Our society is terribly broken.
Jan 3 dwightmoodyforgetsthings commented on Our 2017 Film Preview! You're Welcome!.
Looking like Jupiter Ascending is great, because Jupiter Ascending looked great. Sets, costumes, lighting....all fantastic. Just everything else was craptacular. Luc Besson is much more reliable than the Wackowski Siblings. They made a couple good movies a long time ago, Besson manages to be at least entertaining and often great with every film.

@11- Though I should add that perhaps his ability to parse long Twitter screeds indicates a bit of the 2nd.
