Exactly.

The lying, hypocritical, sniveling, pretentious, cowardly, despicable know-alls have had their little flutter, and now it is at an end!

Good riddance to bad rubbish!

No thanks.
Well said!

They proved that she lied to the American people. She claimed it was about a video when she had already told the Egyptian prime minister that it had nothing to do with a video.

The Clintons are -- and always have been -- hateful, traitorous and race-baiting lie machines.

I see all the major parties dying actually. In 30 years American elections are going to go completely on tribal lines.
Yes, it's unfortunate.

Both parties have reduced America to a Third World Hell Hole with racial civil war (just getting started) and a few rich people (like the Obamas and the Clintons) in heavily guarded communities whose private jets are ready to whisk them away when things get really bad.

They have been investigating the Clintons for years. I'm thinking it's wishful thinking that They will find something on Hillary at this point. Past results have turned up nothing.
Trump on the other hand really hasn't enjoyed the scrutiny of the investigators until recently and now he seems to be bucking the system by saying his tax returns are none of our business. Well we will see how that shakes out....

Now, after Election Day, it would not surprise me in the least if the liberal media turns its firepower on the Clintons. But I don't expect it to happen before then (for the reason I just gave).
They do for sure. People are used to the Clintons being associated with scandals though. Which I think lessons their impact. And lets be real here, the GOP is never good at exploiting these things. They prefer drawing things out over a long time, which makes people tired of hearing about them. Take the email scandal for example. The time to bring that up would be in August. That would make it the prime focus of election and harder for her to weasel out of. However, that and the related Benghazi commission have been going on for so long that people are tired of hearing about it.

Trump is not the GOP, anymore than WWE is high tea at the Empress Hotel in Victoria, B.C.

Hill and Bill, get ready for the beat-down of your life!

Donald hasn't been subjected to anything quite like this. What the GOP tried to do to him was very tame to what he will experience in the general. You also don't know how effective it was either. For all you know that was the reason it took him so long to get voters to coalesce around him. The same goes for Bush who was an incumbent President that barely squeaked by for a victory. My point is, don't dance around thinking that the half hearted attempt aimed at him in the primary is anything like what he will experience in the general.

It has nothing to do with Trump. My point was that the GOP already ruined their chances with those scandals by pounding on them for over two years. There is little Trump can do with those at this point. That, along with the fact that people have been hearing about the Clintons being involved in scandals since Bill ran for office in 1992, means no one is really going to give a ****. Unless the GOP has ability to pull out a video of her going on a racist tirade while at a KKK BBQ and orgy no one is going to care about that stuff. If Trump is going to win this it's going to have to be on the issues. He's not going to be able to beat the Clintons at their own game.

It is no coincidence that the liberal media waited until after Trump became the presumptive nominee before "breaking" this story. And with all of the skeletons in Donald's closet, I am sure that this is only the beginning. I also recently heard an interview with professional Clinton hit-man David Brock, in which he also basically said that Trump really has no idea all the mud that will be slung his way.

(As an important aside, remember that with GWB and Romney, the liberal media was able to dig up a 1976 drunk driving incident and "47 Percent," respectively. Yet, that was the worst that they were able to dig up. And while GWB & Romney have relatively clean ethics records, the same cannot be said about Trump.)

It just goes to show that those who voted for Trump in the GOP primaries were really not thinking all that clearly, IMO.
Aw... boohoo, sniff, sniff... If you can't run with the big dogs, stay on the porch.

The Trump camp was effective being loud mouth brats smashing away at political correctness....now it is time to shut up and soothe the barking and snarling liberal dog. Time to stroke....I think Donald might now have the finesse to back off at the right moment.

Agreed. Trump faced a whole lot of neophytes and otherwise incompetent rivals in the primaries. They were also all hampered by having to defend the Republican "core values". Well, that doesn't apply to the general election. Hillary Clinton knows how to campaign, has people running her campaign who know how to win elections, and she doesn't have to kiss the collective butts of the bigots, xenophobes, and religious crusaders that make up such a large part of the GOP base.
