Dems in Panic Over Hillary Candidacy: 'Our Nominee Is a Disaster'

The Republicans may be having their problems with the Trump insurgency, but over on the hard Left, there's no love for the Dowager Empress of Chappaqua:

Bernie Sanders is the only Democrat not linked to an FBI investigation. If this doesn’t mean anything to you, then you’re too terrified of Trump’s rallies to realize that Clinton could get indicted. Also, if you can’t fathom the possibility of Donald Trump winning, then keep in mind that most Americans don’t trust or like Hillary Clinton. A general election isn’t a popularity contest among Democrats. In 10 out of 10 national polls regarding favorability, Hillary Clinton has negative favorability ratings nationally in all 10.

Be very careful what you wish for, because most Americans have an unfavorable view of Clinton and Bernie Sanders already beats Trump by a wider margin. I’m only voting for Bernie Sanders in 2016 and I explain why in this YouTube segment. Most importantly, Democrats should remember that 33% of Bernie Sanders voters will refuse to vote for Clinton in November, if she becomes nominee.

As stated by The Wall Street Journal, there are a great many Bernie Sanders supporters like myself:

A new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll indicates one third of Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders’ supporters cannot see themselves voting for Hillary Clinton in November. This could spell trouble for Clinton who will likely need Sanders’ backers in order to win the White House.

So, you can replay the unrest at Trump rallies one million more times (we know how that terrified voters into choosing Clinton the other day)...

The writer H.A. Goodman has one principal objection to Mrs. Clinton's candidacy, which is her support for the Iraq War:

Between half to two-thirds of all the American soldiers killed and wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan were the victims of IED blasts, and Hillary Clinton advocated sending U.S. ground troopsback to the Middle East last November.

I called Donald Trump a clown and buffoon when I appeared on CNN, but Hillary Clinton in many ways is worse. Why?

Bill Kristol and other neoconservatives would rather see Hillary Clinton in the White House than Trump, so while I’ll never vote for Trump, I’ll never vote for a Democrat with a neoconservative foreign policy.

So this is the point where the hard Left and the deeply conservative Right finally meet: in their shared disdain for the what they see as the "neoconservative" stance on foreign policy, which tends to be interventionist, very pro-Israel and in favor of "nation building." It's also why, in the mirror image of the breast-beating we're seeing on the Right, many "progressives" say they'd vote for Trump over Hillary any day. Too bad some candidate can't harness those emotions and bring new voters over to the GOP side...

The problem with Hillary supporters is that they have no concept of hypocrisy.

When a political party knows it can side with Bush on Iraq, evolve on gay marriage all the way until 2013, accept prison lobbyist donations after “apologizing” for mass incarceration, and still expect to rally the faithful and obedient masses in November, then American democracy has a problem.

Also, Trump needs Congress to implement his crazy schemes and nothing he’s spewed can be done unilaterally, aside from war, and he’s less hawkish militarily than Clinton!

I still want to see Clinton’s Goldman Sachs transcripts. I still want to see Clinton’s 22 Top Secret emails that the State Department won’t allow Americans to view, but the Clinton campaign feels is simply over-classification.

Please excuse my loyalty to Bernie Sanders over the political party that’s sided with Republicans on numerous topics, when Sanders wants to address structural issues pertaining to Wall Street and foreign policy.

Preach it.
