Is there a chance this backfires on the Bernie or Busters? This is incredibly rude.

I've many tweets from non-crazy Sanders supporters that are getting pissed.

Yeah. I honestly wonder whether Hillary would do better if she ran against the far-left base.

Maybe the best speech of the night, but it misses out on the accolade of "good speech" because half the audience is talking and shouting over him.

Honestly, none of the highlights of this convention will play well because they will all be polluted by heckles.

I mean, I question whether Hillary will even be able to appear without immediately taking a hit in the polls.

Lol, chill out. I'm not obliged to play into the fantasy that everything is going well. It's not going well.

Are people really saying it has died down?

The optics of this continue to be horrible. There's a continuous low rumble that was not present at the RNC.

This music is pitiful.

Could you be any more of imbecilic teenaged boy?
Dude, the RNC music was bad too. They should've played Sinatra's New York New York during the balloon drop. Instead they played a Stones song that had no connection at all.

Calm down dude. How are you gonna handle your future students?

I already have students who I've trained to be much more respectful than you, thanks.
I don't owe a random Canadian guy from an internet forum who is like two years older than me any "respect" nor have I actually disrespected you personally in any way, so I'm quite confused.

I never said you owe me respect. Just that your behaviour is generally disrespectful. It's your character that it's reflecting poorly on.

They booed Bernie himself.  This isn't about Bernie the man.  His name is just a lost cause emblem for the angry green party/college protestor/communist-anarchist-nihilist snowflake crowd to wave as they do what they've always done.  We're noticing this year because even though they're usually a small amount of the party, Bernie recruited a bunch of them as his delegates and now they're here, and he created a lot more of them through his agitprop.

And because normally someone performing as poorly as Bernie would have conceded earlier. Hillary would have had way more delegates if Bernie had had some decency.

Can they change the seating plan mid-convention?
11  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Democratic National Convention **live commentary thread** on: Today at 04:35:02 pm
I want to f-cking throw something. They are heckling hero and known FF Elijah Cummings as he speaks about education, diversity, etc. GO TO HELL YOU DUMBASS ER sh**tHOLES

They should cancel the goddamn convention.

Hagrid is just upset because he's afraid that Trump will cuck his beloved Trudeau
Hagrid does not like Trudeau and voted Conservative in 2015.

And it was the most difficult vote I've ever cast. But a Barbaric Cultural Practices Hotline is small beans compared to Donald Trump. I will probably vote Liberal in the next federal election though, unless Trudeau gives me a real reason not to (which is distinctly possible).

If you are Republican, turn the damn convention off and stop your damn nagging. If you hate Democrats and Hillary, why watch?
For fun. Also, you all were very vocal about the so called disaster in Cleveland. I want to watch you sink into total panic. Enjoy President Drumph!

The difference is, we're on the correct side and you're not.
First of all, you're Canadian. You aren't put of any "we" at all.

Second of all, that is the worst Atlas argument ever. Seriously. And you want to teach?

I can identify with whatever movement I want.

And frankly, there are no other arguments that matter. It's the truth. Donald Trump has done inexcusable things that go so beyond the pale that he is disqualified from consideration as an option for anyone with a working heart or brain. You're an ass.

Honestly ready to cry at what these people are doing to a woman who has devoted her whole goddamn life to serving the underserved. It comes from all sides. What should be a positive four days will be ruined by a crowd that is 40% BernieBros.
16  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Democratic National Convention **live commentary thread** on: Today at 03:34:02 pm
These stupid f-ckers are going to hand the election to Trump. I am furious. Hillary is so decent. She came way closer in 2008 and we saw none of this garbage. When will they get it through their thick skulls that they f-cking LOST.
17  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Bernie gets booed by hundreds of protesters for several minutes on: Today at 02:16:25 pm
Bernie protestors chanting "count our votes." Complete idiots.

Good to see this vile broad gone and the send-off she deserves.

Try not to be so obvious.
19  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Does the Russian DNC hack help Trump? on: Today at 01:01:55 pm
Yes, and I'd say astronomically.

That's pretty weak for a post convention. +3 is not necessarily what we see post convention, usually it's about +10. The Democratic Convention will be more positive and it won't take that much to wipe out +3.

I appreciate your optimism, but...
21  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Is TRUMPPENCE ahead now? on: Today at 12:52:52 pm
Yes, they have a lead that will likely disappear after the DNC unless Hillary completely screws up (to be fair, this is far from out of the question).

Hillary will do fine. It's the Bernie delegates who will f-ck everything up if sh-t goes down. That seems clear at this point.

Let them sink the whole f-cking country at this point for all I care. I have no respect to send their way. This week was supposed to be an opportunity to coalesce and realize Democrats are fighting for something bigger. Unfortunately, members of one faction are prepared to plug their ears and sing in response to multiple concessions from the winner. There is nothing Hillary can do at this point.

Yikes, Sanders delegates boo when Sanders himself says "We have got to defeat Donald Trump and we have got to elect Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine."

He needs to get real with them. Take off the kiddie gloves and tell them not to be children. He needs to get personal and emotional and explain why it is so important to him why Donald Trump can't be elected.

This is a clusterf-ck. I totally overestimated the sanity of his supporters, which I didn't think was possible. If Hillary loses the general, it's at least partly on Bernie. He helped create this mess.

If Hillary Clinton loses it will be Hillary Clinton's fault. She could have offered an olive branch long ago.

You're kidding. Their positions are like, 95% similar. These people are fools.

And the sad thing is, the ones who became delegates were obviously the most passionate among them. Not good.

And of course CNN has Reince Priebus on to comment. Where were the major Democratic surrogates when sh-t hit the fan at the RNC?
23  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Bernie gets booed by hundreds of protesters for several minutes on: Today at 12:42:46 pm
Thank you Assange.

This was only possible because of the fires Bernie stoked to rile up his base and extend his long-dead campaign. It's lazy to blame Assange when the foundations for these dynamics were laid many months ago.
24  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Things Clinton Democrats don't seem to get on: Today at 12:40:13 pm
I understand the sentiment against trade agreements but we should tolerate the racism of the white working class?


Nothing like a wealthy white Atlas liberal teenager's #analysis
Or yours as well.
I mean, I actually know how working class whites feel about people like Clinton: hint-it's similar to how they feel about Trapsy.

Also you're trying way to hard to be part of the Atlas Democratic Cool Clique.

And you've basically devolved into scum, actually taking pride in the way you've backflipped through ridiculous hoops to exonerate a man who is objectively the most race-baiting major party candidate the US has had in generations.

So I'd say it's a wash.

To the OP: Don't care. Hillary is offering more and is not accusing average Americans of racism. I, however, am free to do so.
