Why am I not surprised. However, he did have more government experience then Obozo which is saying a lot considering Obozo was a U.S. Senator.

He's not dropping out, he's suspending the campaign. Which means he still has his hand out begging for money. Good riddance. Now go back home and be a good wife.

Being gay and a Rhodes scholar is not unique enough. We already had a gay president, sandwiched in between a Bush and a Trumpster, and we had a Rhodes Scholar in the president who couldn't keep his pants up around young women.

One by one the wannabe's are dropping like flies. Time to go home Pete and make dinner for your husband and be the best wife you know you can be.

Mayor Pete found out that the low information South Carolina Democrat voters who are still stuck on the liberal Democrat Plantation are not willing to vote for a young gay man; but are happy to cast their votes for an obviously corrupt old guy with diminishing cognitive abilities, essentially because he was the first Black President’s Vice-President. How does that stack up in the liberal Democrat’s politically correct identity politics game book?

Bernie's love for Cuba is what he envisions for the USA. The first shot by demonrats is getting rid of the 2nd Amd and the right to have a firearm. It's the same tactic every country run by a despot does. Remove firearms and you have complete control.

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg explained in an interview with “60 Minutes” why he believes America will choose him over President Donald Trump this fall by characterizing those who swept Trump into office as mounting a “revolution” against the educated elite. “A few years ago there was a revolution against the intelligentsia,” Bloomberg told CBS’ Scott Pelley. “People said, ‘you know, those people, particularly on the coasts, are trying to tell us what to do.’ They wanted a change. That explains Donald Trump. Now, people seem to have changed. This cycle, people want stability.”

You would have thought that the vibe at CPAC this year would involve stressing about our November election prospects, but even as the market dipped over the coronavirus scare the general consensus was that whether we face Vermont Stalin or that miserable monied midget, we got this. The common image of conservatives is one of dour pessimism, but that is less due to some inherent doom-mongering on the right than to the decades of failure by Conservative Inc. Under the wise, steady guidance of our establishment betters, all we did was lose, but Donald Trump gave the cons a taste of winning, and they like it.

Judge Royce Lamberth issued the order in response to litigation by the group that has dragged on for more than five years and seeks the public release of information from Clinton's tenure at the State Department. 'Any further discovery should focus on whether she used a private server to evade FOIA and, as a corollary to that, what she understood about State's records management obligations,' the judge wrote about the federal open records law.
