He's just totally gone off the deep end and gone all in on the Fox news Kool aid.


You’re not following what I mean by “true colors.”

You’re practically describing the 2000s politics Trump of being some moderate-centric fellow.

Rudy’s (and Trump’s) true colors are that they’re sleezebags who have no morals, good or bad. Two big fake smiles who want nothing more than to be powerful and in control.

Rudy’s former life as a moderate was because he’s a populist and so is Trump. They don’t have views. They just act to stay in power.

Biden will announce Wed. That will make it 20 Democratic candidates.

CNN has a live town hall tonight from NH with Klobuchar, Warren, Sanders, Harris, and Buttigieg.

A few things she says about the high cost of college...




This from a former professor who was paid $350,000.00 to teach one class.
I can think of another way to lower the cost of college.
yup. and it's this kind of nutbag econ policy that scares people away from the Democratic party. Warren is an idiot, full stop.

Biden may save them. but probably not.

Unfortunately New York realized decades ago that Donald Trump was a joke, so not sure if that theory has legs.

I’m sure in most NYC circles. He carried a lot of counties upstate. Might just be the rust belt demo shift from northern Maine through Minnesota. White men surged to him in droves. That’s where most of the 2012-2016 blue to red county flips occurred

You’re mistaking somewhere Trump performed well for somewhere Obama performed well.

So what you're saying is the people who knew him most considered him to be a clown, but the old white folks who knew him from his reality show thought he was a star?

That's bang up analysis, there, Cotton.

I know it's really early but I feel like Beto is done. His numbers are not looking great, he's not caught on with any particular constituency and he still appears to stand for nothing. He majorly miscalculated - should have stayed and run against Cornyn.

More than miscalculation I’m running for president I’d say his issue has been running an abysmal campaign

Has he been running one?

Seems the only people in this race are Biden, Bernie, Pete, and Harris.

I mean you might as well not even mention Joe Biden yet. Seems like the latter three are really it right now. Beto doesn’t get the benefit of peaking later though... some of the other candidates who are MIA are probably still fair game to get the ball rolling (Booker a good example).

When Biden announces <48 hours from now, there will be no other Dem candidates. At least none worth talking about. Would love to see Amy K as his VP.

Beto? He was a joke the moment VF put him on the cover.

This is why it’s a mistake to wait until 2020 to serve as a means to get Trump out

The idea that 2020 will be a fair fight is ridiculous.

The democrats need as big of a turnout as possible to overcome the corruption and the best way to do that is to impeach and get the public to know exactly what Trump has done.

The ratings for impeachment hearings would be amazing!!!!
