I'll never forget it. I had gone out for Mexican food and had a margarita or tewwwwww and I came home and the news was b l o w i n g up about that. And in the end no one cares and Hillarwiiu botched it by giving the most milquetoast white dumb lady answer about that instead of dragging ha and then she let the media go nuts over John Podesta being stupid.

I will neva forget Morning Joe complaining about Cheryl whats her name.

What kills me about that sentiment is that no one rational (yes I understand that rationality is out the window here) could actually blame Obama for actively making things worse. It was usually more along the line that he wasn't cleaning up Bush's mess fast enough.

"LOL it's been two months and Obama can't even reverse the worst recession in 80 years! The old guy (the one who caused this) was WAY better, mirite?"

But then again I remember a friend's dad complaining about Obama raising taxes "again" two months into his presidency so lol

How Facebook ads helped elect Trump

Parscale received help utilizing Facebook's technology from Facebook employees provided by the company who showed up for work to his office multiple days a week. He says they had to be partisan and he questioned them to make sure. "I wanted people who supported Donald Trump." Parscale calls these Facebook employees "embeds" who could teach him every aspect of the technology. "I want to know everything you would tell Hillary's campaign plus some," he says he told them.

But Zuckerberg..

http://www.cnn.com/2010/POLITICS/02/...nts/index.html

The overall seats in 2010 were much closer in in margins than 2018. So Dems will definitely need more open seats to take back the house. NY Times is not inaccurate in their assessment, not was CNN back in 2010.

http://cookpolitical.com/analysis/ho...se-retirements

If Democrats were to hold all of the seats we rate as leaning towards them, all 12 of the Toss Ups, and half of the seats in Lean Republican — a big ask — they would still fall two seats shy of a majority.

Today, there are 52 Republicans sitting in marginal districts with Cook PVI scores of R+5 or more Democratic — more than twice the number Democrats need. The problem for Democrats is that these tend to be personally popular members: three quarters of them won their 2016 races by double digits, and half of them won by more than 15 points. For the most part, they know how to navigate tough districts and attract independent voters.

Of the 52, just four have announced retirements so far: Reps. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (FL-27), Dave Trott (MI-11), Charlie Dent (PA-15) and Dave Reichert (WA-08). Their retirements have vaulted these seats to the top of Democrats' takeover list. But as the holidays near and retirement season looms, Democrats' chances hinge on how many of the other 48 stick around.

Democrats will definitely need more retirements to have a more favorable shot at winning the house.

The conservative Parscale sees an irony in all this. "These social platforms are all invented by very liberal people on the West and East Coast. And we figure out how to use it to push conservative values. I don't think they thought that would ever happen," says Parscale.

He's very wrong about this. The myth of the liberal Silicon Valley needs to die. These people are the modern train barrons. Somehow a bunch of libertarian white dudes got the reputation of being liberals just because they all drink wheatgrass smoothies.

Frankly, the American people were tired of a president who leads from behind. They wanted an assertive leader who takes the initiative and doesn't wait for permission.

It’s partly a byproduct of so many people seeing liberal and conservative through the lens of social issues.

The technocrats like gays, support abortion and want legal weed so they must be liberals!

There is a ZERO percent chance he ran his businesses without mob help or contacts.

I think it is far far more likely that Trump and Trump's business bribed officials from other nations to get their hotels and other shit built in foreign nations, and did this well before he became the nominee
