Democratic duo out to beat `bully’

World

With the Democratic presidential nomination in sight, Hillary Clinton late Sunday sought to repel sharp attacks from party rival Bernie Sanders, while training some fire on Republican frontrunner Donald Trump.

This was the decade when President Clinton led Democratic Party that backed a trade deals like NAFTA and GATT, welfare reform, repealing Glass-Steagall and a crime bill that many say has contributed to high African-American incarceration rates. Hillary Clinton leads among Democratic voters, 57-to-40-percent, over Bernie Sanders, in the delegate rich MI. “And when you watch these Republican debates, you know why we need to invest in that”. “I am the one person that she does not want to run against”, he said of Ms Clinton on Saturday.
“I agree“, Clinton said.
Denise Ghattas, an undecided voter who grew up in Flint, Michigan, asked. Mr Sanders’ victory in ME is his third of the weekend after winning Kansas and Nebraska. “Because it’s very hard to imagine living under that kind of pressure without being able to fall back on prayer and on my faith”.
“The electability issue is just one more way the Democratic establishment is trying to trick us into admitting defeat before the primary has even happened”, Jamie Peck, a Sanders’ supporter, writes for Death and Taxes. He described going shopping with his mother as a boy in Brooklyn, New York, and seeing people with numbers on their arms from Nazi concentration camps.
“I’m very proud to be Jewish, and being Jewish is so much of what I am”, Sanders stated.
In her most pointed thrust, Clinton said Sanders had voted against a 2009 bailout of carmakers, adding, “I went with them”.
“… The money was there, and had to be released in order to save the American auto industry and four million jobs, and to begin the restructuring”.
“Look, my father’s family was wiped out by Hitler in the Holocaust”, said Sanders, 74, who was born in Brooklyn, New York, and whose father immigrated to the United States from Poland. He referred to the overall package as “the Wall Street bailout where some of your friends destroyed this economy”.
“I kind of think if you get paid a couple hundred thousand dollars for a speech, it must be a great speech”, Sanders said.
Clinton stood by her decision as secretary of state, as part of the Obama administration, to remove Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi but acknowledged the “deeply regrettable” aftermath – largely a state of lawlessness in which the Islamic State has flourished. “There ain’t nothing! I don’t give speeches to Wall Street!” Both Ms Clinton and Mr Sanders criticised Mr Snyder’s response to the crisis and called for him to step down. He said it amounts to “federalizing” Flint’s water system.
Gene Kopf said he was exhausted of blaming mental health and background checks for gun violence in the U.S.
