Was just going to share something similar, BEAL!

That's good news. I'm glad that they're focusing on and highlighting the concerns and dangers surrounding this stuff.

The constant attacks on a still incredibly well liked president and the guy who held the office before this abomination is utterly baffling and a horrific game plan for Democrats.

They really are bad at this

He is a thoughtful person. He had an excellent interview with Joshua Johnson of the public radio program 1A. I highly recommend it.

I didn’t watch much, but Booker does come across as extremely skilled in these debates. You’d think he’d be doing better.

Also, 1A is a great program.

Because the debates are such a clown show, it's almost impossible for anyone who wasn't already near the top to make any sort of serious move.

Take Jay Inslee for example. Dude is probably the strongest candidates on climate change, has actual experience running a government, and doesn't have an icebergs chance in Greenland of getting anywhere near the top of the polls because he has to share the stage with fucking dopes like Bill Dr Blasio and Marianne Williamson.

The comments are just ....

I cannot understand the stupidity or maybe it’s the championing of ignorance being such a status to hold on to???

The argument seems to be, well the earth goes through cycles so la di da.

Why wouldn’t we want to at least take some precautions to protect ourselves from these cycles?

You get someone like Ben Shapiro who’s supposedly the rights ‘intellectual ‘ making statements like if the oceans rise then people will just sell their homes and move!

Brilliant idea! Who’s gonna buy the underwater houses ????

Then throw in our debate format and instead of talking about issues it’s set up as the apprentice with an audience interrupting every 30 seconds.

Dems need to focus on healthcare, environment (can switch order), jobs, and honestly only focus on those 10-15 battle states.

Trumps focus is on 270, and he’ll continue to spout shit and Dems will worry what does California think of this!!?!?

Win PA, OH, and FL

You can’t have a debate with 10 people on stage. Describe how you’ll end racism in 15 seconds! But that’s the DNC’s problem for agreeing to such a format in the first place.

And it’s also a great example of why it’s better to run as a governor than a senator - the latter typically have years of bad votes attached to them.

Did anyone have to watch that after school special The Wave in school back in "the day" ?

I feel like that's what we're living through sometimes.

Still, give me a Dem debate on issues over a Trump Nazi rallies any day of the week, amirite?

As a Christian, you must find him reprehensible beyond words.

It's a well known fact that all the Lord Gzus (and also the Father and the Holy Spirit) cares about is the Supreme Court.

It seems that evangelicals abuse Christianity for their own racist views. A poll a few days ago indicates that half of the people in the US think that Trump is racist. But interestingly...
Quote:
"While half of voters think President Donald Trump is racist, religion shows an even bigger divide. Only 21 percent of white Evangelicals believe the President is racist. Compare that to 63 percent of voters who don't affiliate with any organized religion," said Mary Snow, polling analyst for the Quinnipiac University Poll.
https://poll.qu.edu/national/release...ReleaseID=3636

So they claim to be morally superior with their 'Christian values' but in reality are anything but.

You're right. I'm not.

Democrats are rally bad at politics, while the GOP is really good at Hitler Youth cosplay.

Oh, I'm sorry... "celebrating Christian values"
