The LuLac Edition #3203, May 3rd, 2016



Bernie Sanders beat Hillary Clinton tonight in Indiana. Sanders has a way to go to get the nomination and tonight’s win did not hurt Clinton numerically. But the optics of a Trump near clinch of a nomination as Clinton still tries to get her majority is just not good.
I heard a fill in talk show host, a woman, on WILK say this evening that she is no longer interested in the race now that her candidate Bernie Sanders has no chance. This type of “vanity candidacy” really is not very productive. It is said that the Sanders people will not vote for Clinton and stay home.
Go ahead. Pout.
Go ahead. Be big babies and hold your breath and stomp your feet.
But don’t come crying when because of your lack of support and non interest in the Clinton campaign……you see the Supreme Court and every advance made during the last eight years stripped away.
The next President will pick the next Supreme Court. And since your “precious” Bernie Sanders can’t do it, do you really want a wildcard like Donald Trump to have that power?


Donald Trump has won the Indiana Primary. It appears that he will be on his way to the Republican nomination. Trump will get to 1237 but what happens after will be a big problem for him.
Trump may have some politicians like Lou Barletta, Chris Christie, Carly Fiorina and Tom Marino. But the people who are the money men of the party will not release the purse strings. You may see a billionaire lose the money game because the Clinton people will target and attack his stands on Women, Immigration and even Foreign Policy.
Donald Trump may win the Convention but you’ll see how he’ll do when the money men like the Koch Brothers channel their money into the under cards (as my friend Dr. David Sosar is fond of saying) of House and Senate seats.


There may be a way for Trump to get the Presidency but it will depend on the ability of the American people to believe Trump’s vagaries and the fact that people want change….at any cost. The Democrats will come in with at least 230 Electoral votes of the 270 needed to elect a President. But the caveat that Trump presents if he can carry states like Ohio, Michigan, Jersey, Florida and Pennsylvania. If Trump carries these states, the Democrats might be in peril. And don’t think the Obama/Clinton teams aren’t ready for that.


Ted Cruz dropped out this evening but left by espousing all of his beliefs. He did not mention Donald Trump by name. Trump in his speech called Cruz courageous. Cruz is building for what he and his supporters hope will be a future after Rump.

Elizabeth Warren and Hillary Clinton. (Photo: Huffington Post).
You bet. Notice how quiet Elizabeth Warren has been? I tell you there’s a deal afoot. If Clinton picks Warren, she can use Warren as her attack dog to go after Trump’s wealth and the façade he is building that he is a friend of the working man.
But two women on the ticket? Don’t forget the Clintons picked Al Gore in 1992 when it was unheard of for two Southerners to run together. Warren can inoculate Clinton from Trump’s attacks to a certain extent.
In effect Trump dared Hillary. If she weren’t a woman she’d be at 5%. By doubling down, Clinton will make this an election about gender. A gender that has been a long time coming.
There are people who say that Clinton might not be comfortable with Warren. JFK and LBJ come to mind. As a good friend of mine from Colorado has said, “The Clintons will feel comfortable with anyone who will help them win.”

I would have voted for Sanders, but I will vote against Clinton.
It has nothing to do with pouting, it is simply I have no use for Hilary Clinton.
She is a disgraceful person. She allowed herself to be publicly humiliated time and time again for political gain; she is nothing more than an educated street prostitute.
I don't want my daughters to look up to her and feel her way is the way to achieve success in life.

Why Trump has become so popular is because he appeals to a neglected group of voters. Voters the liberal elite think are not worthy of time or attention.

I am an independent I like Sanders, if he is in it November he gets my vote, if he doesn't get the Democratic party nod, I will be voting, with great trepidation, for Trump.
Sanders and Trump have more in common than many Clinton supporters would like to see or believe, first and foremost, he isn't one of the establishment candidates.
Still hoping for the Bern.

If Warren were to accept VP from Clinton, she would lose here progressive credibility.
Warren is the antithesis to Clinton, if she were to sell out I would be completely done with the Democratic Party.

Yeah, she's a prostitute because she stayed in a marriage because she believed in commitment. You and I never know what goes on in a marriage. You are making a big leap.

I don't want my daughters to look up to her and feel her way is the way to achieve success in life.


Oh yeah being a successful lawyer, being smarter than her husband, being a two term Senator from New York, being Secretary of State, appointed by a President who beat her soundly....yeah you sure as shit don't want that for your daughters do you???

I spit my coffee all over my computer screen reading this. Boy, you have a soft spot in your heart for serial philandering assholes and the dunce women that stick with them. I don't get it.

Not sure about you or 836 if you have daughters, but I do and I would prefer my daughter to have pride and self-respect above all, including any success Hilary has had because of her husband, not because of herself. And if she could have done it all without Bill, she didn't have the self-confidence or respect to do it. Her way to success is not admirable it is pathetic.
Maybe Trump will do bad, maybe good. For me, these last 12 years or so have been some of the worst of my life, not sure if it is the country or just bad luck or just fate, but I am willing to give a non politician a shot.
Sorry I don't like Clinton, and I don't care for Trump either, but I dislike Trump less.
I do find Clinton competent, I do find her able, but I don't have confidence in her as a leader, and that is my choice.
If she wins, maybe I will be wrong, but a continuation of the Bush/Obama years are something I would like to put behind me and try something new. And, if it doesn't work out, we move on.

The effects on our 2nd largest city under a dem president, governor and mayor....


the answer is to create an economy that necessitates good paying jobs, not government programs that can't meet the demands. Then again, by keeping people in poverty and homeless and providing them the bare minimum, dems keep people not only dependent, but voting them in

I'm with you 9:40
Successful lawyer? Thrown off the Watergate Impeachment Committee, Rose Law Firm . Being smarter than her husband? Huh, IQ maybe but her behavior screams "mediocre", 2 term senator? Not enough stamina, just checking a box on resume enhancement, being Secretary of State? Mediocre at best. Her legacy tainted by Bengazi. It's her behavior as illustrated by these and other questionable actions ( email, Clinton Foundation, Speaking "fees") that define Hillary in our mind. I will strive to instill much better in my daughter.

A guy just won the Republican nomination for president by spending no money, hiring no pollsters, running virtually no TV ads, and just saying what he truly believed no matter how many times people told him he couldn't say that. I always hoped I'd see this once before I died. Pay attention, because chance are it's the last time we're going to see it in our lifetimes.
Trump continues to repeat what his goals are. They are simple and to the point: build the wall, no sanctuary cities, win negotiations, keep jobs here, make more stuff, common sense immigration, terrorism and economic policies.
For those of you not yet on the Trump Train, I know you don't want to vote for Hillary, but all the pundits have been trying to convince you that Trump's a complete fraud. (That was between their smug assurances that he wouldn't make it out of Iowa.) The fear that the professional, establishment political class feels is visible. The citizenry are awakening to the possibility of a president that will really take the lead in what we believe.
