To me, this is the other side of the "Biden is done" coin and is not only well written but actually pretty humorous at times:

"Every black person up in this mess has a Pete Buttigieg in their lives. He's the white guy with the fancy degree and no experience who walks into your office, starts running your meeting, and walks out with your promotion. He speaks like he's cribbed his lines from a motivational poster, except that, after every insipid statement, all the white folks start clapping and you never know why. He's deeply concerned about your issues, and assures you that he'll be "your voice" at the board meeting or the golf club you ain't never been invited to. He's nice enough, so you don't want to hate him, but every time you look at him you think, "That's the dude who got my parking spot."

FTA on Sen. Klobuchar:

"At a donor event, Klobuchar inadvertently summed up her African American outreach campaign. She acknowledged that African American women are the base of the Democratic Party but said "they need some friends." And she continued, "When I look at this, I look at independents, and I look at moderate Republicans to add to our numbers."

Instead of offering a vision of how she intends to help black women do the hard work of being Democrats, Klobuchar wants to make the party safe for Republicans. That's like coming to the cookout with no food, no wine, and three white friends nobody invited."

Article is 100% wrong. For Bootyjudge, it is near 100% about sexuality. Go poll Muslim's now, see how they split. As I said repeatedly, look at the 2008 CA vote splits on gay marriage vs. voting Dem in the election. That flip was black people. Blacks in CA might have evolved on this issue a bit, but not the ones in the heartland where their high turnout and 95% Dem split is required to win elections.

Winning New Hampshire wasa huge blow to Sanders.

Buttigieg lost, which is clearly a win for him, especially since he lost to Sanders, to whom he's lost to twice now, making the Sanders loss even more disappointing to Sanders and his supporters.

Sanders now needs to string a big loss or two or even three in a row.

It's the only chance he has to win.

No. Nothing would make Dems happy except for a smelly old man.

Maybe if she went with her old slogan : "We need to get order at the border."

Here's Amy Klobuchar in 2006 talking taking a hardline stance on immigration, supporting a border fence and even criticizing the Bush administration for not cracking down on companies hiring illegal immigrants.

To the right of that NAZI Bush! Ouch

Both parties are the same!!!

No, they aren't GOP doesn't don't care about identity, unless its GREEN ...

But identity is all Dems seem to care about .... But here they are ... WHITE MEN, even in CA!

Illegal Immigrant is an identity you care ever so deeply about.

Right, that's what I'm saying.
You identify such people as "Illegal."
So when you say "identity is all Dems seem to care about" it's actually the opposite; Dems, in your mind. don't care that they're illegal. Trampers are the ones who want law enforcement to round them up and make them go away.

Your whole premise here is based in your identity as an American Citizen vs. their identity as an Illegal Foreigner.
It's identity politics, to the core.

Well Obama had his share of problems winning over white voters... and don't get me started on gay voters... so I'm gonna call a "you can't possibly determine that" on this one.

Amy and Pete are young enough to be teachable...like Obama was.

Is that why white men have finished 1st and 2nd in the first two primaries, and all the black and hispanic candidates have dropped out of the race due to low support?

You're a ------- moron with zero grasp of reality.

Where is our old Obama? He best get out there and get to stumping for the Democrats if he wants them to win.

#23 - He's working with Holder to fight voter suppression in court and he's making appearances to register voters. He will let the primary play out. I would bet he'll be very active from the convention to election day.

He's waiting for a nominee, obviously. Why waste time stumping for individuals until then?

Once we get a nominee, I expect him to be a huge help.

I sure hope so. I saw that he was working with Holder and that is good and I have seen him do a few events but I sure hope he ramps it up. It is getting to be time for all hands on deck.

We have laws to say how people are supposed to become Americans. We have laws to say certain parts of our land should not be entered into. We have legal places for immigrants to come to enter our nation to become an American.

Illegal's do not follow that. Hence, they are Illegal.

What a terribly racist and stereotyped article. The more Liberals continue to separate people by groups, the more and more racist they inherently become because then they start catering to those groups. I know that white-shaming is just a version of minority-privilege and Liberal-privilege but it's still annoying when used in these types of contexts. White-shaming has its place but not in articles about things that have nothing to do with inequality and unequal opportunity. This article only serves to trivialize race relations and undo the progress that has been made.

I can totally see you claiming that any resistance to allowing ISIS supporters in the country was nothing more than identity politics. Us vs. Them. With absolutely no regard to why "us" opposed "them."

That part is immaterial I guess.

To be fair, Obama turned out to be a decent president.

Do you think Bernie is teachable? Or is he too old?

Both have "discovered" African American voters this election cycle.

Enough said.

Biden just mentioned African Americans getting shot down in the street, this election cycle.

Enough said.

"Sanders builds double-digit national lead: poll

Electability is the top issue on voters' minds and Sanders is now viewed as the best positioned to defeat President Trump, with 29 percent saying he's most electable, followed by Bloomberg at 25.

But the Morning Consult survey found a 10-point drop among black voters in their confidence that Biden has the best shot of defeating Trump. Thirty-two percent of black voters said Sanders has the best chance of defeating Trump, followed by Biden and Bloomberg at 21."

They don't think their identity politics is identity politics.
That's the point.
I've pointed this out many times, and will continue to do so.

"I can totally see you claiming that any resistance to allowing ISIS supporters in the country was nothing more than identity politics."

I've never supported allowing ISIS fighters to enter the country.
I've never supported identifying Muslims as apt to be ISIS fighters as a reason for blanket denial of entry by people from seven (oops make that six, had to take Saudi Arabia, origin of most 9/11 terrorists off the list) overwhelmingly Muslim countries.
I apologize for the deep-seated consistency in my views on this matter.

Minorities know deep down that when push comes to shove, whites will always throw non whites under the bus - even white fudge packers. Whites will not spill white blood for blacks. History.

If I recall correctly Hillary wanted Trump as her opponent, thinking he would be easy to beat. Trump seems to want Bernie for the same reason. I think history will repeat and the orange schittstain will go down. Bernie would make a fine president.He would at least TRY to help the common man in his struggles to survive. Unlike just about any of the others.

And why are people in Vermont such relentless Commies that they've been electing one since Trump's beautiful trophy wife was in diapers?

Or is this more of a "I read it on the Internet, so it must be true" thing?
