Bill Clinton Downplays Barack Obama As First Black President: “We Are All Mixed Race People” (VIDEO) … “You Don’t have a President [Obama] who’s a Change-Maker”
C’mon, we all know that Bill Clinton was the first black president …
Hmm, is Bill Clinton trying to lose the back vote for Hillary? While campaigning in Tennessee Bill Clinton seemed to downplay that Barack Obama was the first black president when he said that unless you are “100 percent, 100 percent from sub-Saharan Africa, we are all mixed race people.” It begs the question that I have wondered for a long, long time. Does Bill Clinton really want Hillary Clinton to be president and force him to be the first, First Man?
Playing off Congressman Steve Cohen’s introduction that claimed Bill Clinton was just a “stand-in for the first black president,” Clinton told an audience in Memphis, “You know what we learned from the human genome?
“We learned that unless your ancestors — everyone of you — are 100 percent, 100 percent from sub-Saharan Africa, we are all mixed race people.”
Hmm, Hasn’t Hillary Clinton been running on the mantra that she we be a third term of Barack Obama? I guess Bubba didn’t get that memo from Hillary’s private email server.
Hundreds packed into the Whitehaven High School gymnasium Thursday to hear former President Bill Clinton stump for his wife, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
Bill Clinton, a giant state flag behind him, spoke largely on issues that plague Memphis, including high unemployment, violent crime and poverty, and said Hillary would help America “grow together.”
“Without an economy that works for everybody, we can’t be one America, and we can’t go forward together,” Clinton said.
But in talking about the struggles of middle- and lower-class America, Clinton said the country’s financial system is “rigged.”
“Yeah, it’s rigged, because you don’t have a president who’s a change-maker, who, with a Congress who will work with him. But the president has done a better job than he has gotten credit for.”
REALLY DONALD, DON’T YOU BRING YOUR FAMILY ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL? WHATS THE DIFFERENCE?
Hmm, once again GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump applies a double standard as he mocks other while he does the same thing. Donald Trump mocked his GOP rival Jeb Bush for bringing his brother, former President George W. Bush, to help campaign. Why wouldn’t Jeb bring his bother to a red state like South Carolina? Sorry Donald, its just good marketing, you should appreciate that. In fact, if Donald had a former president as a brother he would be doing the exact same thing. Don’t get me wrong, I am not a Jeb Bush supporter, I believe he represents too much of the “mushy middle” of the Republican establishment, however, let’s call it like it is. Trump has his entire family on the campaign trail all the time. Sorry, the longer this race goes on, the bigger idiot and fool Trump is sounding like. Trump, keep it classy, if that is even possible.
Hey look, Trump has his entire family on the Campaign Trail but that’s different
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is mocking rival Jeb Bush for bringing his brother, former President George W. Bush, to help campaign.
“Don’t fall asleep when I mention the name,” Trump said, when he brought up Jeb Bush during a rally in Louisiana on Thursday.
“I see he’s bringing his brother in now. He tried the mother, who’s a very nice lady, I’m sure, but he tried the mother. That didn’t work out so good,” he said. “Now he’s bringing in his brother.”
Former first lady Barbara Bush recently campaigned with her son in New Hampshire ahead of the primary there. Now, his brother will be hitting the campaign trail in South Carolina to help bolster support.
Trump said he’d refrain from saying too much until after the former president makes a statement, adding “there’s plenty to say about what happened.”
“Especially that last three months, and especially getting us in that quicksand. You know, we got in quicksand,” he said.
Trump has in the past called Jeb Bush an embarrassment to his family, which includes two former presidents.
Socialist Bernie Sanders Destroyed Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire by 60% – 38% … So Why Are They Leaving the Granite State With a Similar Number of Delegates?
WHEN IS A 22 POINT WIN NOT A WIN … WHEN ITS DEMOCRAT POLITICS OF COURSE.
Self proclaimed socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders destroyed the establishment, super pac candidate Hillary Clinton in the New Hampshire Democrat primary Tuesday night by 22 points. At the end of the evening the vote count of the people of New Hampshire was Sander 60% and Clinton 38%. But get this, after the embarrassing butt kicking Clinton took at the hands of a 74 year old socialist, Hillary Clinton may actually come out ahead in the delegate count due to the pre-pledged support of superdelegates. I guess this is what Bernie Sanders was talking about with regards the political process being rigged? Hey Bernie, instead of always whining about campaign money, you might want to look at how delegates are allocated in the Democrat party. Before the primary even began Hillary was ahead with delegates, Clinton came into the contest with the support of six superdelegates, who are state party insiders given the freedom to support any candidate they choose. And you wonder why the people hate the process. As Legal Insurrection opines … It’s how DEM-ocracy works.
What Difference Does it Make if I lose by 22 points, I still win …
Sen. Bernie Sanders handily defeated former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday, but she may come out of the state on top in the delegate count due to the pre-pledged support of superdelegates.
Here’s why: New Hampshire has 24 Democratic delegates distributed based on the number of votes each candidate receives.
According to the Associated Press, the Vermont senator earned at least 13 of the Democratic delegates with 60 percent of the vote in the Granite State. Because New Hampshire isn’t a winner-take-all state, Clinton won at least nine delegates with her 38 percent of the vote. A remaining two delegates have yet to be determined based on popular vote totals, according to AP.
But New Hampshire also has eight Democratic “superdelegates” — party insiders who aren’t bound by the popular vote outcome and can support any candidate they choose. Six of the superdelegates said before Tuesday night’s voting that they plan to support Clinton at the Democratic National Convention in July.
That support isn’t binding, though — superdelegates can switch candidates between now and the convention.
Clinton’s Granite State superdelegates include New Hampshire Democratic lawmakers Gov. Maggie Hassan, Sen. Jeanne Shaheen and Rep. Annie Kuster, according to The Hill. One of the undecided superdelegates is Ray Buckley, chairman for the New Hampshire Democratic Party, who was barred by state party rules from selecting a candidate prior to the primary in an effort to maintain neutrality.
Hillary Clinton Backer Urges Pulling Gloria Steinem & Madeleine Albright From Campaigning … Hillary’s War on Women … Next Up, Pander to Minorities
Hillary Clinton feeling the backlash from old, out of touch feminist comments …
Just how unlikable is Hillary Clinton and how bad is her message to the electorate, she is even driving women away from her campaign. Following the ridiculous and ill-advised comments from former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and Gloria Steinem, Clinton is now being begged by supporters to pull both Albright and Steinem from the campaign trail and shut them up. Let us not forget that Hillary Clinton laughed hysterically at Albright’s comment that, “There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other!”
Hillary Clinton has actually done the unthinkable, she has even managed to drive women away from her campaign. Just how bad a candidate is she? But of course, she is the victim.
Days after two of Hillary Clinton’s most prominent female surrogates, Madeleine K. Albright and Gloria Steinem, drew fire for their comments about young women supporting Senator Bernie Sanders, another Clinton surrogate proposed that the two women be pulled from campaigning for Mrs. Clinton.
On a conference call with elected officials supporting Mrs. Clinton on Tuesday, Deb Goldberg, the Massachusetts state treasurer, suggested that Ms. Albright and Ms. Steinem be “kept away” from Mrs. Clinton’s campaign, according to a person briefed on the call who could only discuss the private conversations without attribution.
Christina Reynolds, a spokeswoman for the Clinton campaign who was on the call, replied that she appreciated the feedback but did not elaborate on how the campaign would handle the two high-profile supporters, who in recent days called for young women to basically grow up and support Mrs. Clinton.
The dust-up began on Saturday when Ms. Albright, 78, the first female secretary of state, criticized Mr. Sanders’s “revolution” and said electing the first woman as president would be the real revolution. She then repeated one of her best-known phrases, telling the crowd, “There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other!”
Ms. Steinem, 81, and an iconic spokeswoman of the feminist movement, told the talk-show host Bill Maher that young women supported Mr. Sanders to attract the attention of boys.
“When you’re young, you’re thinking: ‘Where are the boys? The boys are with Bernie,” Ms. Steinem said.
The end result of this pathetically run campaign … a tie in Iowa, which many individuals believe Sanders probably won, and a devastating 22 point defeat in New Hampshire. This morning the Clinton Machine wakes up to evaluate the train wreck and last nights devastating loss to a 74 year old socialist where Hillary Clinton lost every voting demographic except the +65 crowd. Sorry, but this is just downright embarrassing that a woman who’s entire life has been based upon her running for president and 2016 is looking a lot like 2008. So now it appears that she can no longer count on the women vote … she will pander to the minorities instead.
HEY BLUE COLLAR DEMOCRATS, WAKE UP, TAKE A LOOK AT YOUR PARTY …
Democrats, this is not your grandfather’s Democrat party, its not your father’s Democrat party. Hell, this is not even Bill Clinton’s Democrat party. As reported at VOX, welcome to the new socialist Democrat party as Bernie Sanders is the future of the Democrat Party. That should scare the living daylights out of many Democrats. It is unbelievable that using the word liberal to describe a Democrat was the kiss of death, now this party openly accepts a self-avowed socialist.
The MSM wants to trash Conservatives and the Tea Party, yet having a socialist as the party nominee of a major political party is A-O-K.
Fresh from his win in New Hampshire, it’s now clear that whether or not Bernie Sanders wins the Democratic nomination outright, he’s already won in another, perhaps more important way: His brand of politics is the future of the Democratic Party.
Sanders is the overwhelming choice of young voters, scoring a staggering 84 percent of voters under 30 in the Iowa caucuses and projected to do better in New Hampshire.
Any young and ambitious Democrat looking at the demographics of the party and the demographics of Sanders supporters has to conclude that his brand of politics is extremely promising for the future. There are racial and demographic gaps between Clinton and Sanders supporters, but the overwhelming reality is that for all groups, the young people are feeling the Bern.
53% of New Hampshire Women Have a Special Place in Hell Saved for Them … Bernie Wins Women over Hillary by 53% – 46%
DON’T LOOK NOW, 53% OF NEW HAMPSHIRE WOMAN WHO CAST VOTES IN THE DEMOCRAT PRIMARY ARE GOING TO HELL … ACTUALLY ALL BY THE +65 CROWD ARE GOING TO HELL …
Hillary is so unlikable, she even drove women away in NH … Since the outset of the 2016 presidential campaign, Hillary Clinton has played the gender card to make up for the fact that no one can name a single accomplishment for the former first lady, US Senator and Secretary of State. Over this past weekend in New Hampshire her campaign sunk to a new low when Hillary Clinton surrogate, former Sec. of Sate Madeleine Albright, said much to the chuckling and laughing of Hillary, “There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other!” Well that went over like a ton of bricks as Bernie Sanders trounced Hillary Clinton in last nights New Hampshire Primary 60% to 38%!!! Making matter worse for Hillary, Bernie Sanders won the woman vote 53% to 46%.
The end result … Bernie Sanders wins by 22 points over Hillary Clinton.
Hillary Clinton’s campaign motto … “There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other!” Wow, there’s a winning message. How her campaign does not do a total shake up and Madeline Albright tossed off the campaign trail would be a miracle.
Sanders won women by 53-46 percent, as well as prevailing far more widely among men, 65-34 percent. Sixty-nine percent of women under 45 backed Sanders (including 82 percent of those under 30 women), while Clinton won women 45 and older by 56-43 percent.
Among all voters under age 30, Sanders beat Clinton by a huge 84-15 percent margin, another result similar to Iowa.
Sanders won by 45 points among self-identified independents (72-27), and they accounted for 39 percent of NH voters – fewer than in past years, but still many more than in other states.
Senator Bernie Sanders beat Hillary Clinton among nearly every demographic group in the Democratic New Hampshire primary, according to exit polls.
He carried majorities of both men and women. He won among those with and without college degrees. He won among gun owners and non-gun owners. He beat Mrs. Clinton among previous primary voters and those participating for the first time. And he ran ahead among both moderates and liberals.
Even so, there were a few silver linings for Mrs. Clinton. While Mr. Sanders bested her among all age groups younger than 45, the two candidates polled evenly among voters aged 45 to 64.

ABC News is projecting that socialist Bernie Sanders will win the 2016 New Hampshire primary. With 30% of the precincts reporting, Bernie Sanders leads Hillary Clinton 58% to 40%. Hillary Clinton, the embattled Democrat establishment candidate, is in some deep trouble. The voters lack of trust for Hillary and the excitement for Bernie, the 74 year old socialist, is a real issue for Hillary Clinton going forward.
ABC News projects Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders will win the New Hampshire Democratic primary, based on exit poll data and vote analysis.
Sanders, a self-proclaimed democratic socialist, led former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in recent polls in the Granite State. Following a close race in Iowa between the two contenders for the Democratic presidential nomination, which Clinton barely won, both campaigns ramped up their attacks in New Hampshire.

FBI Formally Confirms Its Investigation of Hillary Clinton’s Email Server … So Much for Hillary’s Denials
WOW … FBI CONFIRMS ITS INVESTIGATION OF HILLARY CLINTON’S PRIVATE EMAIL SERVER!!!
The FBI has formally acknowledged the worst kept secret in the world, that they are formally investigating the private email server of Hillary Clinton. Oh the timing of this revelation, just one day before the New Hampshire primaries. As reported at the Washington Free Beacon, the letter, dated February 2, was disclosed in a federal court filing Monday. Baker further wrote that the FBI has not “publicly acknowledged the specific focus, scope or potential targets of any such proceedings.” He concluded the letter by saying that the FBI cannot disclose more “without adversely affecting on-going law enforcement efforts.”
Sorry Hillary, there appears to be a there, there. This scandal is not going away and will dog Clinton throughout the primaries and a general election, if she gets that far. Some one should be investigating the Clinton Foundations and any quid pro quo for donations.
In a letter disclosed Monday in a federal court filing, the FBI confirms one of the world’s worst-kept secrets: It is looking into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server.
Why say this at all, since it was widely known to be true? Because in August in response to a judge’s direction, the State Department asked the FBI for information about what it was up to. Sorry, the FBI said at the time, we can neither confirm nor deny the existence of any investigation.
Now, in a letter dated February 2 and filed in court Monday, the FBI’s general counsel, James Baker, notes that in public statements and congressional testimony, the FBI “has acknowledged generally that it is working on matters related to former Secretary Clinton’s use of a private email server.”
Baker says the FBI has not, however, “publicly acknowledged the specific focus, scope or potential targets of any such proceedings.”

Bernie Sanders Prevails and G.O.P. Has 3-Way Tie as 3 New Hampshire Towns Vote.
The results are in.
Or, at least, the first results from the tiny New Hampshire towns — Dixville Notch, Millsfield and Hart’s Location — that practice the time-honored tradition of voting at midnight to claim the distinction of casting the election’s first primary ballots.
Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont emerged as the Democrats’ big winner of the wee hours on Tuesday, with 17 votes in total, while Hillary Clinton received nine.
On the Republican side, Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, Donald J. Trump and Gov. John Kasich of Ohio each had nine votes.
In the early, early voting it would appear that Bernie Sanders has raced out to a 17-9 lead over Hillary Clinton.
As for the Republicans it is a much tighter race as Ted Cruz, Donald Trump and John Kasich all have 9 votes a piece, followed by Christie with 3, Bush 2, Rubio 2 and Carson and Fiorino with 1.
