Clinton Brings Out Big Guns Against Sanders

Former Governor Doyle 

Doyle, a Democrat who supports Clinton, vetoed a blanket ban on human cloning in 2005.

“Had Senator Sanders won the day with his refusal to support and invest in stem cell research, Americans would have lost access to a new frontier of medicine that could one day cure Alzheimer’s, ALS, and other fatal diseases,” Doyle said in a statement. “When medical progress needed support from Sanders, he not only was absent, but was among those leading the effort against it. This is in stark contrast to Hillary Clinton who in the Senate successfully fought to expand funding for the National Institutes of Health and has consistently supported stem cell research and its potential to save the lives of Americans and their loved ones.”

    I love it when socialists fight over who is the bigger socialist. It’s essentially arguing who’s failure is bigger.

    Just like the wackos trying to see who can build a bigger wall. Or out crazy each other. Just like walker now supporting cruz, one of the guys that ate his lunch in the debates. If it is trump or cruz in the general election then Clinton walks into the WH without breaking a sweat.

    Not according to Cruz vs Clinton polls.

    Want to place a wager on it? A cookie dough blizzard against a bottle of my home-made concord wine. I would recommend a 2012, as it would go well with one of the foot-long ‘dogs that have been rolling around on your cooker for a week.

    I would have no problem taking up that wager if wagering on an election in which you vote wasn’t a felony.

    I’d rather vote. Keeping Hillary Clinton out of White House may be more important than keeping liberals out of the 1st amendment suppression business.

    What exactly did you say? That a friendly bet between “friends” is a felony? But electing an adulterer to the SC is OK?

    Or are you just afraid of the bet and are so cheap that you couldn’t stand to lose a faux dairy treat?

    If you want to keep Clinton out of the WH then nominate someone with some sanity. cruz and trump don’t meet that low bar.

    Don’t you read the sign at polling place that you are prohibited from voting if you wager on outcome of the election?

  8. old baldy

    No, there wasn’t a sign of that nature up here.

    So you are afraid of that bet, no surprise.

    PS: I won re-election in a landslide.

    There was such a sign prominently posted where I voted. Below is the relevant text from the Wisconsin Statutes

    6.03(2) No person shall be allowed to vote in any election in which
    the person has made or become interested, directly or indirectly,
    in any bet or wager depending upon the result of the election.

    Kind of doubt the felony part though. A “friendly bet between ‘friends'” is a class A misdemeanor. I don’t see how it could be a felony unless you pay someone else to hold the prizes. Then it’s a Class I felony.

    I am not an attorney and this is not legal advice.
