John McCain started out a democrat, and he's always been a democrat and still is. All these liberals who 'leave' their party like Mr. Lewis in WV is doing to run on a Republican ticket because he's lost all his democrat support, don't leave their stupid liberal thinking. They still fight for controlling YOU, taking away your guns, forcing YOU to pay for liberal loose womens' abortions, and think muslims and commies are our 'friends.' No one is ever fooled by these stupid people. Changing a party 'name' doesn't mean YOU have changed your thinking.

John McCain was NEVER a Democrat. In fact, before the lunatic fringe aka the Baggers took control of the republican party, McCain was considered to be a conservative republican.

Hillary Clinton is the former Senator from New York and more recently the Secretary of State. If she chooses to run for President, she will win in a landslide.

solutions, rather than my elaborating on Mrs. Clinton's many accomplishments, both personal and professional, why don't you discuss your personal choice who is, I believe, Ted Cruz.

No, solutions, I'm not going to waste time providing you with facts about Mrs. Clinton or her qualifications. Hillary Clinton has a very long history of public service and an impressive academic background. You aren't interested in facts but you are interested in hanging onto RW myths, misinformation and lies.

solutions, since you have been paying such rapt attention to FoxNoise, why don't you enlighten us about Whitewater...

For example, who was that Special Prosecutor again and what were the findings about the Clintons and Whitewater?

So, solutions, despite the facts which you have provided, you prefer to believe the FoxNoise version. Clearly you will not accept facts even when you, yourself, cannot avoid quoting verbatim from the Special Prosecutor.

Excerpt: As for Whitewater, the special counsel, Robert Ray, concluded, "This office determined that the evidence was insufficient to prove to a jury beyond a reasonable doubt that either President or Mrs. Clinton knowingly participated in any criminal conduct."

solutions, it was not necessary for me to make an argument for or against the Clintons. You provided the verbatim quote which, in fact, determined that they were not guilty of any wrong doing. Like it or not, the Special Prosecutor, with all the investigatory resources behind him, could not find any evidence to the contrary.

Excerpt: As for Whitewater, the special counsel, Robert Ray, concluded, "This office determined that the evidence was insufficient to prove to a jury beyond a reasonable doubt that either President or Mrs. Clinton knowingly participated in any criminal conduct."

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say none of you have researched the facts of your posts further than listing to the opinions of your favorite bias media. Fox News/NBC/CNN/NPR/etc.. If the left doesn't get you, the right will. Ever read the Benghazi Reports? Really read them? Or did your favorite anchorman read it to you? Ever been on wiki-leaks? Ever read any actual transcripts of the events transpiring in Libya/Syria/Gitmo/and even famine stricken Somalia? Or did your news say you weren't allowed to read them? I understand, 700,000 leaked Afghanistan documents are hard to read through. It's much easier to be a puppet and do as your told.

solutions, you can parse my sentence construction in an attempt to prove your own point; however, I chose my words carefully within the context of the excerpted quote you posted.

The RW Media Machine is very unwise to focus on Whitewater which was the investigation into a complicated real estate transaction which occurred decades ago. The investigation itself took place over twenty years ago and rather than compromising the Clintons, it resulted in highlighting the witch hunt mentality of the republican party.

OK, solutions, I'll comment on the NYT article about the Clinton Foundation. I agree with J. K. Trotter at GAWKER.

Tell me, solutions...what do you know about Roger Ailes?

Wiki entry excerpt - Paglia: Some of her views have been characterized as conservative, but Paglia characterizes herself as a Clinton Democrat and libertarian. She opposes laws against prostitution, ***********, drugs, and abortion.

Paglia is a brilliant and provocative woman and I'm familiar with her writing and political positions.

Now, solutions...what do you know about Roger Ailes?

solutions, Hillary Clinton has not declared herself as a candidate for the presidency.

Again, what do you know about Roger Ailes?

You continue to dredge up old and very well-known gossip, innuendo, opinion and misinformation about Hillary. As I said, she has not officially entered the 2016 presidential race, despite what you might believe...

solutions: "...Uh, Hillary is running for president."

Clearly you do not know anything about Roger Ailes and you claim to have stopped watching FoxNoise - perhaps you are embarrassed. In any event, there are many changes happening at FoxNoise. Remember, I guarantee that FN will soon be telling its viewers that Obamacare is the best idea the GOP has ever had. Stay tuned...

Staying on topic which is the demise of the tea party. FoxNoise once again proved Ailes' point that, paraphrasing PT Barnum, "There is a sucker born every minute".

Ailes describing FoxNews: "As for actual journalists? "F*** 'em," Ailes said. "It’s not a press conference – it’s a television show. Our television show. And the press has no business on the set."
