Mike Bloomberg spent 400 million dollars to prove that Liz Warren can butcher a narcissistic billionaire.

Warren killed it. For real.
Pete has a good first half before he got hung up on Amy.

Bernie was... Bernie. Funny that he NOW says that whoever has the most delegates at the convention, even if it’s not the winning number, should be the nominee, when he said the exact opposite last time. But he’s been saying the same thing for 40 years man, he’s so authentic!! Bulllllshit.

Bloomberg was slaughtered.

Which brings me to again, people writing off Biden too soon. He had a good night, and because his support has been lost mainly to Bloomberg, any one that was on the fence between the two, now has their answer.

No mention of the issues at DOJ taking place right now.

No mention of guns.

How?

Bloomberg was always going to get a pounding tonight. He needed to withstand it and not make it worse.

He made it worse.

You bring up a good point. I wouldn’t be surprised to see a Biden surge.

I really read the Bloomberg hype wrong. I thought he might have a little rust bit he was downright awful. And how comments about a joke being taken wrong might be one of the worst blunders ever. I’d rather him drop out tomorrow and still go after Trump with his ads.

The Socialist from Vermont worth 3million says “billionaires shouldn’t exist.” What’s the cut off Bern? 3.5 million? 5? Or is it a sliding scale depending on the size of your bank account?

This is who we want keeping those suburban voters that will ensure Trumps defeat? Jesus

Twice. Once to knock Bernie's record, and once in his closing.

I don't think anyone is catching Bernie in Nevada. His lead is big and early voting is over (which, frankly, is kinda horse shit that the Nevada debate takes place after early voting closes. alas)

But it'll be very interesting to see how Liz and Pete do now.

Biden didn't kill himself, but he didn't do enough to raise himself up either.

Bloomberg had a horrible performance early. His second half was better, but nothing could overcome the trouncing he got in the open. He had to have known this was coming and he shit the bed big time. It he performs well next time he can claim a rebound, but man that Liz Warren shot and his response is going to be played forever.

But I also think we saw the first salvos, from Bloomberg and Buttigieg and slightly by Biden, or the war chest of opposition research against Bernie being opened up. The knives will be soley focused on him now. Blaming the harassment of the culinary Union on Russia was a doooooozy. The communism shot might be a cheap shot, but it has legs - as does Pete's shots about not being a democrat and his wanting to burn the house down.

Man this is going to get ugly. I honestly don't see how we don't end up with a contested convention in Milwaukee.

It’s the same with the majority of Democrat politicians. They say what they need to say, and do what they need to do to get elected. That’s why “suddenly” all the Dems went from being anti gay marriage, to pro gay marriage, at the same time, what a coincidence! They go where the PC police send them, that’s liberalism.



That’s why guys like Biden, Bloomberg, Warren , etc make so many gaffes about the African American community, white privilege, how women are treated....because they don’t really know or care, they just want control and want to win.


It’s funny how you keep pretending that some Democrats being moderates on social issues is somehow an indictment of liberalism but the outright hostility of the GOP to LGBTQ people, Black people, etc. is better.

I’ve yet to hear you explain why, if Democrats are so terrible for minorities and LGBTQ people and treat them worse than Republicans, minorities and LGBTQ people continue to vote overwhelmingly for Democrats?

A lot of his policy seems like it was aimed at rationalism, not racism. Unfortunately, sometimes those two can clash, because feelings aren’t rational. Nor are subordinates. Sometimes, they’re racist. Also, systematic racism is real. Also... If you maybe sound racist, you probably should reconsider what you’re about to say, because it’ll be perceived that way even if that’s not the intention.


Uhhh it doesn’t matter if he’s personally a racist, he continued and defended an extremely racist policy of stop and frisk, and another extremely racist policy of surveilling mosques. If you implement and defend racist policy you’re a racist.

I clearly called out systematic racism that you’re alluding to. Don’t come at me like I’m defending Michael Bloomberg. I’m clearly not. I was differentiating his terrible policies that have logic and emotion intermixed (ex. surveilling a mosque because on paper it superficially makes sense even though in real numbers it does not and is incredibly offensive and hurtful).

What’s weird about your response to me is that I literally called the man some form of a racist and you’re coming at me... telling me he’s a racist. Ok.

Billionaires shouldn't exist. This is common sense.

Works for me.

I missed the debate tonight, but it makes me happy to hear Warren and Pete had a good night. Will have to look up clips online at some point.
