  1. By the way, this debate lineup is somewhat disadvantageous to Biden. He won't be on the same stage with Warren and Bernie, and won't be able to distinguish himself on healthcare, which is what would help him gain traction imo

     

    He will be able to contrast on immigration with Castro though, which could help with the moderate/centrist/conservative lane. 

     

    Luckily, there won't be any "raise your hand" questions this round.

    It'll be interesting to see if Harris and/or Booker try to go after Biden again for old stances on race sensitive subjects, given the current dialogue. Right at the point where the other side has firmly painted where they are on the subject, there might be some backlash at trying to tie some of that to the current party front-runner; especially since most of it is a really long stretch and he'll be certainly better prepared to defend himself.

    I hope they make that mistake.

    We had multiple Dems in this forum in this thread as well as the main stream media take Barr at his word and say the Dems need to move on. Hell even Rogue posted the other day something to the effect of knowing there was no collusion. 

    There was both collusion and obstruction. It’s in the report. The problem is that “collusion” isn’t an actual crime, and conspiracy to commit treason against the United States requires you to prove intent which is next to impossible in court. 


  4. “The campaign wrote a check for just over $5,300 on June 28 to Sheehan Associates for "strategic consulting" services, according to the Biden team's second-quarter Federal Election Commission filing.

     

    The firm is run by Michael Sheehan, who helped with Clinton's debate and speech preparations during his two White House bids and Obama ahead of his 2004 speech at the Democratic National Convention, which helped launch him to national prominence. 

     

    "Michael has coached more Presidents, Vice Presidents, First Ladies, Cabinet Secretaries, Governors, Mayors and Members of Congress than anyone else in the country," the Sheehan Associates website says.”

    "Back in 2016, voters not affiliated with any party (independents) gave Bernie Sanders a big New Hampshire primary victory. The 40% of unaffiliated voters supported Sanders by a 72% to 27% margin over Hillary Clinton. This turned a close race among Democrats (a 50% to 49% Clinton advantage) into a blowout, giving Sanders a more than 20-point win overall."

     

    "This year, it's a very different game. Sanders still does better with unaffiliated voters (22%) than registered Democrats (15%). It's Biden, however, who does best among unaffiliated voters at 29%. It's another example of how Biden is eating into Sanders' support."

     

    "For now, Biden's the one who can rightfully claim that he is winning over voters who weren't Democratic primary voters four years ago. They either sat out entirely or voted in the Republican primary."

    I just think it's a dishonest attack.

    I thought the same in 2016 when Hillary said it too and I was a Hillary supporter (never been a Bernie supporter!).

     

    Yeah, technically true they are losing the current benefits, but they are being replaced with a more generous benefit... It's a net win.

     

    Also, it's much worse for the GOP to levy that attack since they are the ones who want to repeal Medicare entirely anyway lol.

     

    It’s not actually dishonest though. 

     

    You can say it doesn’t thoroughly lay out the full picture, but doesn’t the replacement with Medicare for All go without saying?

    Because the health care plan in Medicare for All is better than Medicare is now.

     

    It’s also better than Medicaid plans which it would also replace. Saying you’ll lose your Medicaid is true, but it’s obviously a completely negative framing. 

    Just seems slimy to me.

    Ok.....but how is what he said false or misleading? It does take away the current Medicare system, and then subsequently replaces it. 

     

    I don’t think it’s “slimy”, the uncertainty is legitimately concerning for older people.

    Toxic Joe poisoning the well! 

    Seriously though I thought this was a misleading talking point when Republicans use it and when Biden does. 

    It’s much more harmful from Biden but I don’t think he cares. 
     

     

    How is that misleading????  

     

    You literally just said yesterday that the whole system would change under a “Medicare for All” plan. (Meaning it would all be one system, taken care of at the point of service, and removing insurance companies as a player at all), rather than the current Medicare, Medicaid, Obamacare structure.

    You guys take wanting to stop illegal immigration and title it fear.

     

    Why not not title it what it is. Which is trying to enforce the law?

     

    I guess since there are a lot of blacks in jail, it's proof white America fears them. Not because they committed crimes. AmIright?

    This is about a lot more than illegal immigration. 

     

    The staunch stance against undocumented immigration to the point of cruelty and family separation is birthed out of fear and racism, which is also manifested in many other areas of this administration, including the Muslim ban and hateful speech to minorities including African Americans (see Charlottesville and the blind support of police officers in all situations, who have committed crimes against black people due to race).

    I don't know who the guy is, but the video posted earlier is largely correct.  Democrats are repeating the same mistake as in 2016.  Biden, and perhaps Buttigieg, are the only ones really talking to the middle class.  They have also settled on Trump's lack of popularity as why he will lose, guaranteed.  Does that sound familiar to you?  It sure does to me.  Identity politics is losing favor.  A lot of people like me who will vote D are tired of hearing about it.  Some may decide not to vote D.  

     

    Don't fall asleep at the wheel again, because it sure looks like people are off the no-doz.  

     

    But really, we both know where this is going again, don't we?  

     

    I listened to this video since you posted it.  Pool seems very anti-war, and he's pointing out that liberals have reacted to Trump's anti-war position as wrong, which makes them appear pro-war.....just because Trump.  Seems to be pretty close to reality.  

     

    And yes, a US president stepping foot into the DMZ is a historical moment, regardless of what one thinks about this relationship.  

    It's a historical moment for sure, just a bad one in this case because we've gotten nothing in return.

     

    They've stopped launching test rockets because they've already successfully built a nuclear warhead and ballistic missiles to carry them.

    Yeah, it figures it would be the demographic set in their ways and filled with hate. 

     

    They generally don’t have an open mind when it comes to anything new or different. 

    Well fear also plays a factor for a lot of otherwise "decent" people, and human nature is such that fear devolves into hate unfortunately. 

     

    As Yoda would say: "Fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate, and hate leads to suffering"

     

    Fear can often be a biproduct of lack of critical thinking skills and lack of education. 

     

    And what Trump and this Republican Party is doing, is weaponizing fear for political gain and power.
