    CBS piling on Bloomberg by asking all the others leading questons about him. Warren is already on reruns - yawn. She is in danger of becoming a caricature of a feminist zealot become flesh. And it has been shown that Warren was in fact not fired for being pregnant - yet another of her autobiographical lies.

    Pete was making great points about cost of Bernie's programs and the downticket danger of a Bernie candidacy.

    Warren forgot to add that her SecEd would be vetted by a "trans" 9 year old. Also, being against testing is crazy.

    That was a very bizarre joke (?) by Bloomy.

    Steyer pandering to blacks with a call for reparations (aka free money for being a certain shade)

    Biden doing surprisingly well. No "other Biden" nonsense.

    Biden is off his rocker.

    Warren is barking mad.

    Slim pickings.

    Four more years.

    You forgot the "IMO" part.
    When conservatives realize they cannot win democratically, they will not abandon conservatism. They will abandon democracy.

    Goes without saying.

    "Why am I stopping. Noone else stops." Good one, Joe.

    Great answer by Pete on healthcare and Denmark.

    Not fucking Matthew 25 again! Is that the only chapter their Bible has?

    I agree, Buttigieg is doing pretty well.

    What if the coronavirus hits hard here, after he blandly assured us today it was all under control, and there ends up being widespread panic and confusion, and people going down with symptoms but not wanting to get tested because of the out-of-pocket costs, or end up going to work and spreading it because they work for companies that don't pay sick leave. Dow Jones is down 6% in 2 days, some industries already hit hard (tourism, manufacturers and retailers reliant on China), and Trump could end up vulnerable politically because he fired response teams earlier in his term and cut funds for critical government agencies like the CDC. Add in shortages of prescription drugs (from China), testing kits, masks, etc, and you have the makings of a national Katrina.

    Trump has been skating on the economy Obama bequeathed him, and was fortunate the Iranians responded proportionately to his rash and insane drone execution. He's had no true crisis to apply his stable genius to yet, and if the economy stutters or tanks he's not going to be able to blame Obama, Comey, the Ukranians, CNN or Shifty Schiff for the mess. He's already polling behind the frontrunner Sanders in 2 of the 3 key battleground states, and would likely be chewed up and spat out in any debate, having had to face nothing more taxing than softball Fox News interviews these past few years.

    I don't think a 2nd term is anything like a given at this point, no matter who he ends up facing.

    A two day market drop after record highs is neither here nor there. The Coronavirus could trigger a global recession, which would be bad for many people, including Trump, but the markets could also bounce back quickly if the pandemic doesn't prove as bad as feared.

    What was overly timid and insane is Trump letting Iran off the hook after they a) downed our drone b) attacked Saudi oil facilities c) attacked our embassy in Baghdad (immediate cause of the Soleimani assassination) and d) gave dozens of US soldiers TBI.

    Yes. It's very up-in-the-air and a lot can happen by November, one way or another.

    Based on what I am seeing in Asia, that recession is already in progress. The only question is how bad it can be. Since Donald Trump takes credit for anything that happens during his watch, no matter what his connection to the event, then he will surely take credit for an economic downturn and global pandemic. Ha. Ha. Just kidding. He only takes credit for good things that happen, like cancer rates going down. He will blame economic downturns on anything and anyone else other than himself, even though he has done all he could to destroy the government's ability to respond to economic and medical crises.

    Sorry you didn't get your war. Maybe next time. Think of all those women, children, and old people who managed to survive because of Trump's incompetent failure to blow up the Gulf region. Don't worry. He still has half a year to blow things up.

    From your lips to Putin's ear.

    Rebecca Watson on Twitter: "uhhh I just turned on the #DemDebate2020 to see Bloomberg saying he bought politicians" / Twitter
    She followed up with
    Rebecca Watson on Twitter: ""I bought them."
    - Mike Bloomberg, referring to the four people in the audience who whoop like they're at the Wendy Williams show every time he says something #DemDebate2020" / Twitter


    Let's see how a good debate moderator might handle the recent Presidential debate.

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Twitter: "Errol moderates NYC debates. He knows a thing or two about how to wrangle energetic candidates! 😉⬇️ https://t.co/3EbqNbTFtU" / Twitter
    noting
    Errol Louis on Twitter: "When the candidates start talking over each other, the moderators should:
    1) Bring the whole thing to a dead halt
    2) Give them an order in which to speak ("you, then you senator, then you Mr. Mayor," etc.)
    Not complicated. You have to keep control." / Twitter


    JQ LLC / Impunity City on Twitter: "@errollouis @nahmias This was designed to be chaotic.
    Those two billionaires should not even be on the stage. @TulsiGabbard is polling higher than both of them, and money's the reason she's not there.
    Noticed Mike ran one of his ads during the break? That's never happened before." / Twitter


    vin on Twitter: "@jqllc @errollouis @nahmias @TulsiGabbard Tulsi is definitely not polling higher than either of them, I wish she was but that just isn't true" / Twitter

    TJ 'Edwards' on Twitter: "@jqllc @errollouis @nahmias @TulsiGabbard He also hasn't been able to buy himself an audience before. Courtesy of Tom Perez and the morally / ethically (possibly also financially?) bankrupt DNC, seats were on sale for $1700-3200 a pop.
    Three guesses which candidate bought all those seats." / Twitter


    Of the two billionaires, I think that I'd prefer Tom Steyer. He's an environmentalist. Mike Bloomberg has no such cause.
