I want the USA to go back to the face palm days of Bush and I feel that Trump is the only candidate that I feel can pull off that feat.

It always makes Canada look better ;)

“Hillary Clinton has a pattern of throwing the Black community under the bus when it serves her politically," Williams said in a statement before the event. "She called our boys ‘super-predators’ in ’96, then she race-baited when running against Obama in ‘08, now she’s a lifelong civil rights activist. I just want to know which Hillary is running for President, the one from ’96, ’08, or the new Hillary?”

I watched that video this morning and she didn't specifically call black boys super-predators. She was referring to the gangs that ran rampage during the 90's. In order for someone to believe that these was about blacks  they would also be saying that they think all gang members are black.

The Clinton-backed 1994 crime law had many flaws. But it didn't create mass incarceration.

A poll finds Clinton leading by 5 points in MA.  If she Bernie loses MA, the race is effectively over.

I think based on tonight's Republican debate, that Rubio will be the alternative to Trump, which is worrying, since he's the only one I believe would have a shot against Hillary. Still pulling for Trump, tbh.
See, I've been having me a real good time
And it feels so nice to know I'm gonna be alright
So please don't take my feelings...

Hillary has said she regrets using the words she used.
But Marcus Stanthony Is right, She was talking about gang violence in general which is not exclusive to black people.

The debate was so catty :fan:
They have done polls one on one Rubio and Cruz still loose to trump.
If Cruz Looses Texas he is DONE, same for Rubio and Florida
Either way Trump is dragging them on Tuesday he may go 15-0 or 15-1 if Cruz wins texas
I reeeally want Bernie to be over after Tuesday :O

Super Tuesday:
Alabama: Clinton
Arkansas: Clinton
Colorado: Too Close
Georgia: Clinton
Oklahoma: Too Close
Minnesota: Too Close
Massachusetts: Too Close
Texas: Clinton
Tennessee: Clinton
Vermont: Sanders
Virginia: Clinton

11 states.  6 states where Clinton will for sure win.  1 state where Bernie will for sure win.  4 states that are too close to predict (of which Clinton leads in 3 and Bernie leads in 1).  Super Tuesday will not be kind to Bernie.

I think Hillary will win SC tomorrow by 25-30 points.  I know some polls are starting to show her leading  by 30+ points but I don't want to get my hopes up.  I would love for her to demolish Bernie tomorrow.

Right, I'm surprised by how much attention it's getting him. I guess it's because he said all the things people have been saying this whole time and what memes were made to point out. Like his suits being made in China, his failed businesses, etc. 
It was entertaining to see Trump squirm and his best rebuttal being "no...no...no"

I honestly cannot believe that Donald Trump is the favorite to win the GOP nomination.  I never thought that he would last.  Everything that would doom a normal candidate has only made Trump more popular.  I've never known a candidate like Trump, not even in all my studies of Political Science.  The fact that's he still around scares me.  I want to think that America will wise up but I'm honestly not so sure anymore.  We may indeed wind up with President Trump.
