Hillary Clinton promises to support and continue the policies of President Obama.

This is a portion of a longer HuffPo article that Hillary posted yesterday:

Republicans aren't just harshly criticizing the president. They're threatening to undo just about everything he has achieved. They want to repeal the Affordable Care Act; in fact they've voted to repeal or dismantle it more than 50 times. They're hard at work dismantling workers' rights and voting rights. They want to take away women's rights to make our own health decisions. Some even want to reverse marriage equality -- one of the greatest civil rights accomplishments in American history. 

In short, they want to drag us backward and undo all the progress we've worked so hard to achieve. We can't let that happen. 

As president, I will carry forward the Democratic record of achievement. I'll defend President Obama's accomplishments and build upon them. I'll work to get incomes rising for middle-class families, make college affordable, alleviate the crushing burden of student debt, protect LGBT Americans from discrimination, preserve women's access to health care and reproductive choice, and keep America safe from threats at home and abroad. And I'll never allow the Affordable Care Act to be repealed. 

We've made tremendous progress over the past eight years. That shouldn't be dismissed or taken lightly. Let's keep that progress going. Let's make sure no one turns the clock back. We've come too far. We've accomplished too much. We can do even more for our families, our communities, and the country we love. And together, we can build an economy and a country that works for everyone. That would be truly revolutionary.

Now see that speaks to me.

We do not need a revolution, because President Obama WAS the revolution.

What we need now is for a reliable person to take over the job and further the progress that Obama has already made.

I am not saying there is not room for improvement, I'm just saying there is no reason to go back to zero and reinvent the wheel all over again.

BTW apparently the Hillary campaign was quick to use that Sarah Palin endorsement for fundraising: 

Hillary Clinton's campaign has begun fundraising off of Sarah Palin's endorsement of Donald Trump. 

In an email blasted out to supporters, the campaign embedded a clip from CNN's coverage of the endorsement announcement on Tuesday with the chyron, "Palin endorses Trump: "I'm in it to win it." 

"Friend, this could be our next president listening to his Secretary of Energy," Clinton's campaign wrote in the email. "Donate to make sure this is nothing more than a bad SNL skit come to life." 

The campaign provided a link to donate to the campaign.

Well what do you know, Sarah Palin IS helping.

      I think the grass roots campaign of Sanders would mean something to those that think of the big picture.

    5. Anonymous9:26 AM

      Even more troubling is their insistence that Sanders will lose the black vote. That in the year 2016, in the time of #BlackLives activism, the black vote is a monolith of entrenched Clinton support. But maybe, just maybe, blacks will look at Sanders' call for social and economic justice and prefer it to the woman whose husband gutted welfare. Who gave us a permanent eligibility ban on food stamps for anyone convicted of a felony drug offense, even marijuana possession. Who tripled federal prisons while more than halving public housing. Who expanded the death penalty. And who used Sister Souljah's comments on the acquittal of the police officers who beat Rodney King as a chance to prove his fairness by equating her with the Klan.

      One other thing. To care more about Glass-Steagall than the glass ceiling means you oppose Hillary's vision not her vagina. The only foreign policy difference between Hillary and Margaret Thatcher is that the more bellicose and reckless one is still living.

      We are for a political revolution. Obama's was not a revolution, Gryphen. I am disappointed that you conclude it had started with Obama. Hillary is a bitch, just like many that worked around her described her. She refused to stop at a place due to the number of middle class americans and said "no, there is no money here" and they left , a no show. Hillary said to the young men assigned to the WH during bills' terms and when they started to speak to her, replied, "don't fucking talk to your fucking jobs" and once told one of the 'go wake the asshole and tell him to get his fucking ass up, I am not going to wait for him." Hillary is a liar, user, and a plutocrat. A young woman the other day said Hillary lost her vote....she drove to the school and was hoping to see Hillary , get an autograph, a pic.....but "we waited for a couple of hours and I was standing back behind the lines at the school's side with all the press, and here comes all the black suvs They pull up to the back door of the school, they get her out and you hardly have a glance at. We waited till it was over thinking that wee still might have a chance....we watched the kids in the windows, locked in classes because it was only a few that were allowed to meet. They came out surrounding Hillary and got in their suvs and drove off. nothing. She doesn't have time or make effort for the no ones like me....I will vote Bernie or omalley." Hillary is a plutocrat...she is too good for you unless she gets something from you. This is a revolution and you can buy into Hillary's "wisdom" "fear" that things won't get done...but go ahead and vote for her anyway...just don't expect much. That is why wall st has given her and her husband over 138 million dollars in speech fees since they left the WH. see ya.

    Democrats Expose Republican Cowards As Senate GOP Refuses To Vote On Trump Muslim Ban

    Senate Democrats challenged Republicans to vote on Donald Trump’s plan to ban all Muslims from the United States. Republicans refused, so Democrats blocked a GOP bill that would have killed the Syrian refugee program.

    Video of the Sens. Reid and Durban calling out the Republicans:

  8. Anonymous6:51 AM

    ...Trump also touted the benefit of Palin’s endorsement, claiming every Republican candidate running for president sought her support and that it goes a long way with voters in key voting states.

    “It was an amzing thing because she wanted to endorse me and she let it be known,” Trump said.

    “And the fact that she picked me over all the others. Her endorsement is a powerful thing in certain areas like Iowa,” he added.

    The billionaire businessman also said that although Palin will likely work with his campaign in some capacity, the two former reality television stars did not discuss any potential jobs after the election.

    “She wanted nothing,” Trump said. “She loves the country and she really wants what’s good for the country, which is really nice.”

    Lemon also suggested that Trump might have been uncomfortable while Palin was delivering her endorsement, but the poll leader was quick to correct him.

    “I was there. I didn’t know it was going to be quite that long,” he joked. “But she made a very good speech.”

    1. “She wanted nothing,” Trump said. “She loves the country and she really wants what’s good for the country, which is really nice.”

      “I was there. ... “But she made a very good speech.”
      Now see, it's that overt contempt for Americans that makes Trump so disgusting. If you are going to sling bullshit at us, at least go to the effort of trying to make it sound least a little tiny bit plausible or have at least a minimal connection to reality.

    Bill Clinton questions Hillary's Super Tuesday plan

    Bill Clinton is getting nervous.

    With polls showing Bernie Sanders ahead in New Hampshire and barely behind, if at all, in Iowa, the former president is urging his wife to start looking toward the delegate-rich March primaries — a shift for an organizing strategy that’s been laser-focused on the early states.

    Bill Clinton, according to a source with firsthand knowledge of the situation, has been phoning campaign manager Robby Mook almost daily to express concerns about the campaign’s organization in the March voting states, which includes delegate bonanzas in Florida, Illinois, Ohio and Texas.

    The former president is starting to get more deeply involved in his wife's campaign. And he's getting worried.

  10. Anonymous7:48 AM

    Republicans aren't just harshly criticizing the president. They're threatening to undo just about everything he has achieved.
    Exactly, not only do they want to undo everything he as achieved, but they also want to start a couple wars, make sure the rich get richer at the expense of the poor and middle class, turn American into a theocracy and take us right back to the middle ages.

    If Bernie wants to dismantle Wall Street and the big banks, he would be in a better position to do this from the senate. So far he hasn’t been able to do that as senator, he hasn’t explained to me how he expects to do it as president.

    His healthcare plan not only would be starting from scratch again, (one step forward, two steps back) but depends on taxing the rich and employers. Congress so far has not closed the loopholes that allow corporations and the wealth to dodge paying their fair share of taxes, so how does Bernie plan to tax them more from the White House?

    Free college for everyone, again depends on taxing the rich, the republicans are doing every thing in their power to dismantle public education for K-12 and replace it with charter schools. How does he expect to get free college, when we are fighting to keep public education alive?

    I prefer a candidate that is going to build on the hard fought achievements of the last 8 years rather than starting from square one again.

      Don't kid yourself, 9:09 AM! Bernie Sanders has taken from the Wall Street guys too! He's been in Congress for eons & ALL of them have been supported by the big bucks on Wall Street in some manner.

      I think they all take money from Wall Street but have a joint way in covering it up.

      Politicians are much smarter than the rest of us in keeping certain things hidden that they know will or would be objectionable!

      There is a lot of information available on Sanders net worth.

      We all know Hillary was taking big bucks from Goldmann Sachs, so you're inferring Hillary is not smart, I agree!

  14. hey !! Sorry O/T but ya gotta love Joy Behar, on the View. This morning they spent at least 5 min discussing whether President Obama is responsible for poor Track's domestic violence assault. Joy was very explicit about Scarah, "she just pisses me off !"

      Love Joy Behar

      I saw that, too, and laughed my you-know-what off!

      Joy absolutely hates the Palins. Anyone who tweets Palin stuff should add Joy to your list. She knows what the Palins are, and she bashes them at every opportunity. Oh, and the audience always LOVES when Joy goes off on them.

      I love "The View" and watch it every day. Joy did go after Sarah Palin this morning and I thoroughly enjoyed her comments.

      Sarah Palin is getting her ass kicked throughout the media! It's way, way past time.

      Fuck Palin and the moose she road in on!

      I've long suspected that Behar reads these blogs. She's made many references to Sarah's scandals over the years.

    She has my vote too. Want to see the work of President Obama continued ... he's done such an outstanding job in spite of all the obstruction in the United States Congress (majority Republicans).

    Hillary is constantly being degraded as has President Obama. She's smart, more experienced in government work than any of the others (on both sides) that want to be POTUS.

    The media is trying to make it appear as though she will not win! Just remember, their outlets are owned and controlled by majority Republicans.

    They forget that the 'people vote and elect'! Need they be reminded that President Obama won both terms in spite of their constant racism and negative that was/is put out there about him every minute and hour of the day?

    It will occur again with Hillary! She will WIN! Betcha!

      Look at it this way, the longer they talk about Bernie's potential, the less they beat up on Hillary for the win.

      I want a women president, but why put in a lousy politician just because she is a women?

      I will wait for Warren and put a great politician in for our first women president.

    2. Anonymous10:19 AM

      9:14 HRC might, i say might be a lousy politician but SHE IS A OUTSTANDING STATESWOMAN. You try running for anything and then reap only constant criticism, and very little thanks. That is why Senator Warren will not run in the near future, if ever. Nothing will impede HRC.

    First point: Clinton statement is a very good political move; provides reassurance to supporters of governance by civilized adults.

    Second point: Given that our first black president elicited so much overt racism from many Americans, I fear the reaction to our first female being elected (especially a Democrat).

    By the end of the day yesterday, watching
    MSMBC's news programs I had to hit the mute button every time the screech showed
    up on screen after her first crazed speech.
    She is a Vegas Lounge act. The whole show
    biz act, even stealing that extra bow.
    For her, where is my next gig. got my wigs,
    costumes, Fuc, me shoes lip gloss butt pads, boob pads, botox needles and my
    Adderall. If Trump had not been running,
    she would have gone after the next one
    who was ahead and would give her something.
    Does not care about the man Trump, just the
    label and "WHATS IN IT FOR ME."She does not
    care about Vets either or the Tea Party
    People. Grabbing on to them got her on the
    road again for some more show biz, look at me gigs and away from her kids she cannot stand. Puts on her wedding ring when need be and takes it off for the night life
    after the gig. She is already scheming
    for the next deal if Trump loses. I don't
    know how perceptive Trump's wife is, but
    Palin has a long time reputation as a
    P teaser to get what she wants.
    Palin's son is filled with intense anger
    at her . He told her from the beginning, leave me out of it all. While in the
    Middle East, his military buddies said that
    he said he wanted nothing to do with her
    so called career and wanted to be left alone. Because of her, every negative
    happening about him is world wide and he
    is a mentally, crippled mess. Oh that's
    right. Obama's fault!

    I will put the collar on her tonight and send her out again tomorrow.

    1. Anonymous1:14 PM

      Palin might have once been a prick teaser, but doubt those moves do anything for her now. She's aged considerably and looks matronly.

      If you notice on TV - Trump media is running photos of her with him a few years back when she actually was attractive (if you didn't know anything about her!).

      She tain't any longer. The evilness in her has moved to her exterior.

    I think Track absolutely HATES his mother and I wouldn't blame him one bit. She has used him horribly as she has the DS child, Piper (during the McCain/Palin loss!) and Bristol!

    The woman is deplorable and I hope she rots in Hell soon!

    I'm so glad to hear that. In the midterm 2010 and 2014 elections Democrats were foolish to hide from President Obama's achievements. And the GOP gained and solidified their stranglehold on Congress.

    3 Reasons Why Bernie Sanders’ Brand of Socialism is Winning Voters

    ...As Politifact mentioned, a Gallup poll conducted last June showed that a whopping 47 percent of Americans would vote for a socialist president. Breaking that poll down by political affiliation, 59 percent of Democrats, 49 percent of independents, and even 26 percent of Republicans would vote for a socialist presidential candidate.

    Sanders is the amendment king

    of the current House of Representative.

    Since the Republicans took over Congress in 1995, no other lawmaker – not Tom DeLay, not Nancy Pelosi – has passed more roll-call amendments (amendments that actually went to a vote on the floor) than Bernie Sanders. He accomplishes this on the one hand by being relentlessly active, and on the other by using his status as an Independent to form left-right coalitions.

      Read this gryphen and tell me who in the hell wants Clinton as president, she is a fucking warhawk. ( unfortunately, Obama supported it.)
      Clinton declared that Gaddafi had a “campaign of violence against his own people” and that he “Defied the world” was a call for a US-NATO intervention. However, the actual planning stages to topple Gaddafi began shortly after the September 11th terror attacks in 2001 when former U.S. General Wesley Clark told Amy Goodman on Democracy Now that Washington planned to “take out 7 countries in 5 Years”, Libya was on that list.

      Western propaganda (Gaddafi was supposedly giving Viagra to his soldiers to rape the women as punishment) was another element that instigated the removal of Gaddafi. The MSM was the cheerleader for the US-NATO intervention in Libya from the start. NGO’s, various elements of the Libyan rebels with Al-Qaeda in the mix and Western propaganda all had a hand in the death of Gaddafi. Washington and Paris were behind the civil war between the Gaddafi forces and the Libyan rebels from the start.
