    Obviously you know nothing about actual debating or you would know that asking a question that you cannot answer yourself immediatly costs points with the judges. No skilled debater is ever so foolish.

    There's a big difference between can't and won't because the only answer would embarrass you.

    Interesting that what started this thread was Clinton asking a hypothetical question during an interview. Interesting that you have just said she has good debate technique.

    It wasn't a hypothetical question, she was asking China to hack the election in 2020. Sounds rather treasonous to me.

    Did you watch the video? It was quite clearly a hypothetical. It is even stated in the title to this thread!

    And if you think what she said was treasonous, you must also think that what Trump said was treasonous.

    It wasn't hypothetical at all, it was a dog whistle to encourage the Clinton allies in China to hack our election.

    She used the same language as Trump. She pretty much tracked his language. So if that was a dog-whistle to China, why wasn't his a dog-whistle to Russia?

    But it wasn't a "dog whistle". It was a hypothetical question in the context of Republicans failing to secure the elections. She was talking about bipartisan legislation aimed at securing the elections, that Senate Republicans wouldn't pursue because of pressure from the WH. Because the WH LIKES Russian interference (because it helps Trump). In that context, she posed a hypothetical. Watch the video, starting at about 2 minutes.

    In comparison, Trump's call to Russia was NOT hypothetical. Not at all.

    Interesting that the right first asserted that Russia did nothing in our election, then they said Trump didn't benefit from Russia's interference, then they said Trump didn't collaborate with them, then they said all governments do it. Now look how quickly they recognize it as a crime when the shoe is on the other foot. That is the definition of hypocrisy.

    That's right so why shouldn't she be investigated like Trump then. I see clearly, when it's a Democrat it was a "hypothetical" question but when Trump joked about Hillary's emails, not hacking the whole election like Hillary just did we should take it seriously. It's not hypothetical....it's hypocritical.

    1. He was not investigated for his comment.
    2. He did not pose a hypothetical question - he invited Russia to hack.
    3. She DID pose a hypothetical. She was talking about Republican Senators providing cover for Trump being soft on Russian interference in the election and posed a hypothetical starting with "imagine" (if a Democratic candidate for president asked China to hack documents in the same way Trump asked Russia). It was a hypothetical designed to show how hypocritical Trump supporters are.

    The hypocrisy lies with the Trump supporters. That was her whole point in posing that hypothetical. The fact that you now try to call her treasonous for pointing out your hypocrisy just confirms that she was right.

    Well lets see if you can answer your own question. And no the fact that there is no definitive answer won't embarrass me since I recognize stupid questions when I see them.

    Keep believing that, it's will keep you going for Trump's second term. Fact is he turned the economy around in 3 years compared to Obama/Biden's 8 year stagnant malaise of 1.8% mean GDP growth. Joe Biden will never be president.

    I believe what I posted because it is all objectively, factually correct.

    You, on the other hand, post fantasy. Go ahead and post a graph of an economic indicator showing the Trump "turned the economy around". You can't, because trend lines for virtually every economic indicator are unchanged since Trump took over.

    November 2020 is 18 months away, nothing Trumps a good economy. Wages are up, taxes are down and there are jobs for people who want to work. The same can't be said for Obama/Biden.

    Somehow you think that was an answer to the question you asked? In case you are short term memory impared your question was how many votes did the Russians change.

    Yes Trump has not yet screwed up the Obama recovery. But he is trying. The only thing Trump really gets credit for is increasing the national debt in order to give hugh tax cuts to the already rich.

    8 years of 1.8% mean GDP growth isn't a recovery, it's .8% above a recession.

    Find one chart measuring an economic metric that has changed slope significantly or direction since Trump took office.

    Nope that was the actual question you posed in a rather feeble attempt to pretend the Russian meddling was unimportant. And you still can't answer it yourself thus demonstrating the silliness of your position.

    Now if you have another question that you can't answer please give the post number. And note a question is different from a rant in that the sentence ends with a question mark.
