    It never ceases to amaze me how progressives allow themselves to be "useful idiots" for the left-wing politicians who exploit them and laugh all the way to the bank. It's only made possible if a person wants to be ignorant. All of the information is out there and readily available. But it would require them to put reality over ideology - something they simply aren't willing to do. Here is yet another glaring example. Barack Obama sold them on the false narrative that he was all about the "little people" and that corporations would no longer have a seat at the table in his administration. That there would be no "corporate welfare" on his watch. As is always the case - the truth is the opposite of what politicians in the Democrat Party promise and say it is:
    • The most important revelation in the WikiLeaks dump of John Podesta’s emails has nothing to do with Hillary Clinton. The messages go all the way back to 2008, when Podesta served as co-chair of President-elect Barack Obama’s transition team. And a month before the election, the key staffing for that future administration was almost entirely in place, revealing that some of the most crucial decisions an administration can make occur well before a vote has been cast.
    • Michael Froman, who is now U.S. trade representative but at the time was an executive at Citigroup, wrote an email to Podesta on October 6, 2008, with the subject “Lists.” Froman used a Citigroup email address. He attached three documents: a list of women for top administration jobs, a list of non-white candidates, and a sample outline of 31 cabinet-level positions and who would fill them. “The lists will continue to grow,” Froman wrote to Podesta, “but these are the names to date that seem to be coming up as recommended by various sources for senior level jobs.”
    • The cabinet list ended up being almost entirely on the money. It correctly identified Eric Holder for the Justice Department, Janet Napolitano for Homeland Security, Robert Gates for Defense, Rahm Emanuel for chief of staff, Peter Orszag for the Office of Management and Budget, Arne Duncan for Education, Eric Shinseki for Veterans Affairs, Kathleen Sebelius for Health and Human Services, Melody Barnes for the Domestic Policy Council, and more. For the Treasury, three possibilities were on the list: Robert Rubin, Larry Summers, and Timothy Geithner.
    • This was October 6. The election was November 4. And yet Froman, an executive at Citigroup, which would ultimately become the recipient of the largest bailout from the federal government during the financial crisis, had mapped out virtually the entire Obama cabinet, a month before votes were counted. And according to the Froman/Podesta emails, lists were floating around even before that.
    And to think that progressives actually believe Dumbocrats "care" about them... :lmao:

    The Most Important WikiLeaks Revelation Isn’t About Hillary Clinton

    There is infinite indisputable proof that the left is incapable of thinking for themselves. Whatever they are told by the leaders (Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, etc.) or whatever they read on Salon.com and MotherJones, they take as gospel. They don't fact check anything. They don't research anything. And they never examine another point of view.

    Here we see it once again. Interviewers from Campus Reform asked students about all of Barack Obama's "accomplishments" in his first 100 days. But....they attributed them to President Trump. I'm sure you can guess what happened. Proving yet again that left-wing voters and supporters are completely ignorant of the actual issues and candidates.

    The left want a mommy to take care of them, hence their love affair with big government social hand outs.
