How many people are on my ignore list Marc? Please tell me since you apparently claim the power to know who has duplicate accounts and now who is ignoring who?
It must be nice to claim information you don't have. However with no pretense of being honest, it is an easy tactic to engage in I suppose.

She would make a horrible president for entirely other reasons than this.
I've heard it but like so many things in the realm of those who make their living or derive power from being aggrieved, they become offended if they perceive you are trying to muscle in on their mental turf.
It's sort of like noting that slavery existed all over the world and that the U.S. was at the forefront of stopping it. Sorry, that doesn't work in the African-American mental grievance model so it's insensitive.
Likewise when discussing Native American "Genocide" due to disease, if you note the same germs wiped out a fifth of the worlds population and killed tens of millions in Europe, sorry, insensitive because that historical grievance is supposed to be for Native Americans alone.
Your view of history is insensitive any time you claim multiple groups have suffered any miscarriage of universal justice when one particular group has built their victimization on that one particular area.

Even in the face of this tragedy she cannot help 'making a pitch'.
Just film yourself saying something from the heart - if you have one.
Forget the flags, founding fathers and God Bless Mom's Apple Pie. BE REAL
Except you can't. Or rather you are doing because your 'real' is selling yourself.
Selling yourself in the light of a tragedy. Selling yourself in the light of a depression. Selling yourself in the light of a recovery. Selling yourself in the light of a joy and celebration.
When are you ever 'real'?
And that is why these gaffes will keep happening. You want it too much and know you haven't earned it or deserved it and know you never will. So your Super-ego sabotages you and shoots you in the foot.
Or Karma does. Or a merciful God who is saving America and the world.
Take your pick.
Obviously you've not seen the "memorabilia" associated with the Obama speech yesterday.
Also I'm not quite sure how declaring someone's blood isn't on your hands is a sales pitch. Could you please elaborate on that? Could you please perhaps explain how Giffords blood isn't on your hands for example?

Well as the resident issuer of death threats and wishes, we will have to take your word on matters of hate.

Perhaps she's just idiotic enough not to spend an extra trillion and a half dollars more than we have yearly. Maybe she's dumb enough to do the job rather than thinking she can just talk her way out of everything and outsmart all the people she is stealing money from to hand to her friends and political interests.
If she were that dumb, that would still make her at least twice as smart as President Obama.
