Dem debate

Yes I admit I am watching as I type this. I simply cannot believe that these "people" are the best the Dems can come up with? My gosh, if any one of these just so happens to be the next POTUS we all will be in a world of hurt my friends.

That's the thing: the Dems know that they're running into a buzzsaw. Nobody of any "quality" on the Dem side wants to go up against Trump. Unless something truly terrible happens to the economy or there is a conflagration internationally, Trump is going to win in a landslide.

Any Dem with a hope of a political future wants nothing to do with this election. So they're trotting out the old,sad, and tired, and focusing on congresssional / state campaigns.

The problem is there are a lot of people who think these idjits are the brain trust and bring the utopian future with them.

Also, how the hell is Bloomy sliding in there. All you hear is the bizarre stuff from the clown crew of the circus and nothing much from him. Now the bozos are dropping out as they go and short and nasty is sliding into the race almost on the down low. It's almost as if all this clown show all along has been to distract and seem so extreme that the intent all along was to slide Bloomberg in as the voice of reason and the real candidate. Keep a watch on that kind of stuff going on.

Everyone, EVERYONE who loves the Constitution and America as a Republic needs to vote this time. I don't care if you don't like Trump. Do what I've done for decades before and vote against the left. I was more of a Cruz guy last time, but since Trump was the final candidate I voted for him. This time though I am actually voting for him. First time in a long time I've voted for someone instead of voting against the other person.

I used to vote for the individual regardless of party. The Democrats in the last decade or so have made it much easier for me now. I just vote straight Republican. Neither party really represents me, but as a former neighbor said, "The Democrats are taking us to hell at 1,000 miles per hour. The Republicans at 100 miles per hour."

Don't just assume it's all a clown show with no hope of them winning. The DNC is pretty good at sleight of hand. They've done it through the collusion fiasco, the impeachment, and now the current in the news candidates. "Watch this show!" While their real actions are going on unnoticed.

I still see a lot of griping about Trump's actions regardless guns, but if you're thinking of protest voting, you may want to consider that such actions would help bring you one of these leftist nutjobs. Trump is only bad on guns when he given poor advice from advisors. Any of these Democrats are going to plan on being strict right out of the gate.

I would not write them off too quickly.

Given the right set of circumstances, they could still pull a rabbit out of a hat. I do not think that it will happen, but it could. Especially if the big man keeps running off at the mouth. I think that the guy is his own worst enemy sometimes.

With that said, nothing much unexpected tonight. Beetle Jug really trying to distance himself from the pack. I thought that Amy Klobachar was going to deck him at one point. He really did fire off a couple of cheap shots directed at her. As for Boomberg, he seemed pretty well informed, and smart to boot. He played his cards pretty close to his vest,Which was probably a smart move by him. But he has the charisma of a rock. Which is why his PR outfit is doing most of his campaigning for him. Warren, you really have to give her points for trying. But I think that she is about ready to burn out. I do not see Beetle Jug knocking Bernie out of the top spot anytime soon.

I agree. Our side cannot afford to sit out this election or vote for someone other than Trump simply because you don't like him. It's either him or else kiss most of your guns goodbye.

The worst news I've heard so far this election cycle is that the left is a lot more pissed off than the right at the moment, so there's a strong chance they'll bring out the vote in greater numbers. We can't let that happen.

I'm literally watching with snacks at hand and my 1911 in my hands doing trigger manipulation and having a great time. This is the best free comedy show I've ever seen!

About the only good thing I saw was that only one was against Capitalism. And we all who that is. I loved it when they tried to get Bloomer to say the people that have non-disclosure agreements are free to come out and break it. Which of course he wouldn't.

Not 1 question on Gun control...i guess it was presumed they all are for it.
My guess is the ratings for tonight’s debate were pretty high because of Bloomberg.
Little Mikey didn’t disappoint, he came across as indignant and condescending as expected.
Buddagig......presents the best imho...and therefore a future danger (ala Obama).
Pocahontas looks like she slept in her clothes and sounds like she’s asthmatic. Now bloomberg should’ve called her out for the fraud, that she is.
Uncle Joe sounds like a bumbling old moron.
Bernie just keeps the anger going...(bloomberg calling him a communist was priceless)
klobachar had a decent showing, but she just isnt likeable or radical enough.

WINNER?.........Yep, PRESIDENT TRUMP......

They are communists. They don't care.

I watched 20 mins of it as I wanted to see what Bloomberg (the latest-Lefty Great-Hope) has in the type of venue...It was quite comical the guy has no presence at all. He got smacked around by senile old Joe B., and spastic-Pocahontas. A stage full of loons...

There are a lot of sad faces on the Lefty propaganda shows this morning (CNN and CNBC) - they realize they have nothing.

After that I went over to the Trump Rally in Nevada. What a difference.

All caveats noted, don't get complacent and all that, but we will have an electoral landslide in November. They have no one who can even come close to taking on POTUS...I hope it is against Bernie as I would like to see this communist (i.e., the "head" communist on the stage) and what he represents take a public flogging by POTUS one on one for the all the country to see straight-up.

It was hilarious when Pocahontas blasted Bloomturd for saying things like “Horse Faced Lesbians” and “Dumb Broad”. They almost put him in the category of Weinstein for his antics on how he treats women in the workplace. He had no response, or very little. His money is the biggest threat, not Bernie the Bolshevik. Doomberg needs to be dismantled, the others will destroy themselves. Trump in a landslide!

At this point, who would that even be? I don't think there is anyone left in the Democratic Party at the national level that isn't a Leftist totalitarian.

Or they want to avoid the topic for the time being. While it still plays to a good portion of their base, free stuff and cultural issues appeals even more to the groups they need to generate large turnouts from in the cities.

Say's it all:

Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump


The Democrat party is the party of high taxes, high crime, open borders, late-term abortion, socialism, blatant corruption, and the total destruction of your Second Amendment. The Republican Party is the party of the American Worker, the American Family, and the American Dream!

Clearly Bloomberg is a smart dude....at least from a business sense. One doesn't get to be a billionaire if you're an idiot unless you inherited it from daddy. But I was shocked at how ill prepared he was. He had to know that someone was going to ask the the questions that were asked, and he had zero response. I mean nuthin. He's toast after that performance.

That's because he is an idiot.

I learned my lesson back in 1992 when I voted for Ross Perot, because the "no new taxes" failure from George H. W. Bush ticked me off. Thanks to me, and others like me, we got President Bill Clinton and the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban.

I spent most of my life as a registered Independent, never voting for a Democrat, but not always for the Republican.

In 2015, I registered as a Republican so I could vote in the Florida primary, since I wanted a say in who was going to run against the Democrat. When the primary came around, Donald Trump was last on my list, and I didn't vote for him in the primary. I still think he's a jerk, but he's a Republican jerk, and a better choice for me than what the Democrats offer, and I enthusiastically voted for him in the general election.

President Trump still makes me cringe with something he says or does almost every day, but he's way better than the alternative.

The way we lose elections is folks refuse to vote for somebody due to some purity issue, like me with George H. W. Bush and taxes. We need to get over some small failing of our personal purity test and get out and vote.

From what I saw and heard, it sure looks like Bloomberg has bought his way into this election as the Dem candidate. Just a few months ago the DNC had rules to block billionaires from being candidates. They had to have real voters donating money to their campaigns. Bloomberg comes in and pours millions of dollars into the DNC and then they change the rules just for him. Now the DNC has to figure out how to take out Sanders again.

But sheesh, Bloomberg, Biden, Sanders are all ancient old white guys, 77 or 78 yo. They could die in their sleep at anytime.

They do have one thing in common and that is to gut the 2A and ban all guns.

We'll see. He moved up in the polls by doing almost nothing more than flooding TV and the internet with advertising. Most of the Democrat voter base don't watch the debates and if the media decides to prop him up he will continue.

I would like to remind everyone about waking up years ago and seeing Jimmy Carter as President. I know I was astonished.

Now Bernie will get the idiot children's vote because of the "Free Everything" stuff. But my concern unlike many is slimy Mayor Pete's. He reminds me of Obama. Very calm, very polished, unflappable. If you noticed last night he attacked Amy because with her out he would most likely get her voters. His stance on guns: Ban them all even though he will legalize almost all drugs that kill more people than guns. They don't talk about guns because it's a losing topic for them.

Do not ignore this election thinking that the USA could not possibly elect any of these losers. There are districts that elected Maxine Waters, AOC and her squad. Besides we need to take back the house and put Pelosi out to pasture.
