Hillary Clinton railed against Donald Trump on everything from wages and immigration to paid family leave and his business dealings in a wide-ranging speech to union members here Monday.

"He could bankrupt America like he's bankrupted his companies," Clinton warned during remarks at the Service Employees International Union's annual convention. "Ask yourself: how could anybody lose money running a casino? Really."
Hillary Clinton Calls Trump a 'Bully' Who Threatens Economy


Now I'm starting to see the appeal of Mark Cuban as Clinton's potential VP choice. Cuban has been nothing but successful as a businessman.

Add to that the following:

Clinton: I'd put Bill 'in charge of revitalizing the economy'

That would be an awesome combination. Bill Clinton in charge of revitalizing the economy and Cuban out-Trumping Trump.

It could tarnish the woman card quite a bit because Hillary would end up winning because she aligned herself with men.

But, if that's what it takes to win, does she have a choice?

The USA is already bankrupt.
18 trillion and counting with no plan to pay it back.

Course, she skips right over the part that the country already is bankrupt, and that she played a major roll in that.

oops.

People know Hillary is frail and failing.

They won't listen.

+250,000 votes for Trump with this one.

That was the first thing that came to my mind when I read Clinton's quote. However, a U.S. presidential election isn't about reality on that level.

It's about this...

Despite Trump failing several times, he is, right now, in 2016, extremely successful to the order of 10,000,000,000 dollars or some such.

He fell, but got up, and now is one of the richest people in the world. You can say what you will about him, but he is not a failure in the standard way Western society deems achievement (how much money youve made).

Also, his failing in the past, but coming back from it, tells me he is capable of learning from his mistakes, and adapting via changing behavior and methods to achieve the desired outcome, otherwise he would never have come back from his failings.

This gives him the very clear vantage point of both knowing what to do, but much, MUCH more importantly, knowing what NOT to do, from personal experience. And America is a business. We need someone who knows BOTH of those things, who has personal experience with BOTH of those things....

Someone whose had everything handed to them so to speak, like Shillery, and has never known actual failure, is much more likely and prone to going into it (failure) for the first time in a crisis or crunch situation, rather than someone who has seen it, and DEALTH WITH IT prior and come through it for the better.

Trump 2016.

With Trump it is a possibility. With Clinton it is a given. That is the difference.

Trump's casino issue occurred at a time when all casinos were suffering. It was an industry problem, not a Trump problem.

As mentioned above, Trump never went totally bankrupt. He used that legal out when 4 of his ventures were not doing well. That was out of hundreds of successful ventures. Overall, his ventures were extremely successful.

How is America bankrupt?

A huge deficit isn’t a bankruptcy

What America is bankrupt of is generosity, love unity and filled with greed, seperation and ignorance


That’s what will destroy America

I don't understand how anyone could think it is a good thing to put Bill Clinton back in the White House, in a position of power.

No matter how good people believe that a president was, there are term limits for a reason. To allow a former president to continue in power through family seems wrong. This situation would be different than just someone's son or brother, or even wife, taking on the position (although that seems to pushing the limits as well). This would be blatantly putting a former president back in power again.

Are we creating royal hierarchies? Are the same families going to keep handing down power and maintaining control of the country?

What amount of massive debt calls for bankruptcy ...

21 trillion or so? Or is it more?
Maby he will start filling in the US debt hole instead of dig it deeper.

I'm wondering that myself.

Couldn't agree more.

Now, now, these are the Clintons we're talking about. They'll save us all. [/snarky]

The Kennedy's. The Bush's. The Clinton's. All would be royals. There have always been high powered extra-ordinarily influential families in American politics, and many of them do not have the best interests of the country at heart...unless that interest also enriches them one way or another...

But we're the ones who allow it by deciding its easier to vote name recognition than to actually think about what these folks are offering/saying...then holding them to it.

No ones fault but ours. They just take advantage.

"What difference at this point does it make?" - HILLARY Clinton

The middle class went bankrupt while supporting the nets that catch the useless eaters. Globalism is at play no matter which candidate is elected.

They will wipe away our debt, for a price.

Assimilation.

Clinton's only experience with bankruptcy is morally.

She is the only of the two to have EVER worked anywhere but the public sector.

Well, if you take a look at the budget and deficit under Bill Clinton ...






The Clinton years showed the effects of a large tax increase that Clinton pushed through in his first year, and that Republicans incorrectly claim is the "largest tax increase in history." It fell almost exclusively on upper-income taxpayers. Clinton’s fiscal 1994 budget also contained some spending restraints. An equally if not more powerful influence was the booming economy and huge gains in the stock markets, the so-called dot-com bubble, which brought in hundreds of millions in unanticipated tax revenue from taxes on capital gains and rising salaries.

Clinton’s large budget surpluses also owe much to the Social Security tax on payrolls. Social Security taxes now bring in more than the cost of current benefits, and the "Social Security surplus" makes the total deficit or surplus figures look better than they would if Social Security wasn’t counted. But even if we remove Social Security from the equation, there was a surplus of $1.9 billion in fiscal 1999 and $86.4 billion in fiscal 2000. So any way you count it, the federal budget was balanced and the deficit was erased, if only for a while.

Factcheck.org

Life was good during Bill Clinton's years for a lot of Americans.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not a fan of Hillary by any stretch of the imagination...

And please don't pretend like the positive things that happened during Bill's tenure as POTUS are just some kind of delayed consequence of Bush Sr.' s policies.

Interesting.

Trump is one of the more successful businessmen this country has seen in modern times and built a 10B+ empire on the back of a 1M loan.

Hillary and her husband have built nothing, she herself playing a major role in our current deficit and set up a foundation where terrorist states funnel money to her, never mind that her own foundation pays women far less than men and far less than what Trump pays his female employees.

What we're seeing is Hillary becoming unhinged and attempting to play Trump's game, attack, and it's not going to work, only hurt her even more in the long run.
