I just can't watch debates unless it's for the Presidency, and then even sometimes I can't. So many scripted lines going on, seems so fake and like a show to me. That goes for both sides. I'm convinced you can only get to this level if you're able to spit out memorized lines on demand. They dodge 90% of the questions and go into speech mode.

It's Democrats who have raised Bloomberg high in the polls (well, high among the leading Democrat contenders). And Bloomberg has enough money to stay in the Democrat's candidate race until the brokered convention. The only question left is whether the other Democrat candidates have hurt Bloomberg's feelings to the point where he will care what they think.

That's not conspiracy though. That's just American politics. As soon as you speak any hard and unpleasant truth, you lose voter support. As soon as you make a slip of the tongue and no matter how quickly you correct yourself, you make yourself into a meme, and you lose voter support. You tell a joke that was funny to all in the room, but can be spun by the lying, dog faced pony soldier spin doctors on all sides, you get a shellacking, and you lose voter support. Heck, I can something in this very comment of mind getting taken out of context and me getting punished for it. I may as well have spoke of tar babies. Jesus himself would not be pure enough for Americans to fail to assail.

I watched some highlights of this. It was simply glorious how the Bloomberg guy was being slaughtered by Warren. The fury! It almost felt like he had murdered one of her tribe's members.

So you agree with Warren. Good to know.

I do not "agree" with any of these clowns. I simply enjoy the entertaiment.

Fwiw, there was (is?) one democrat candidate who I could fully support, seeing that she is strongly against the globalist warmingering. But she is getting the Trump treatment by the media. What a surprise.

Bloomberg represents the Hillary wing of the Democrat party. If he gets the nomination the Bernie/ Warren proto- Communist wing of the party will sit out the election and Trump will win the electoral college again.

@woldpack proto- Communist wing of the party 

In other words the White Nationalist, pro-Trump, Putin-backed proto-fascist wing of the Republican Party will continue for 4 more years.

Democrats, and Hillary-worshippers, are, once again, claiming that Russia/Putin is trying to assist Trump become POTUS. When asked if they had any proof to back up their new claim, they said they did not.

Bloomberg endorsed throwing black kids up against the wall for no reason. He is a Democrat. Even Warren pretended to be a minority to game the system to her advantage. The last Dem nominee called young black kids super predators- just say’in.

Google Russians helping Trump again. Unless once again you're saying you refuse to believe 'western' intelligence sources and instead trust the Kremlin's.

Trump lost all credibility long ago by exaggerating and distorting facts. It's not surprising his backers ape him.

You're just say’in incorrectly. Nice of you to over-generalize.

Heh, once again pubs are trying to pretend like the Democrats are the racist party.

These people think we don't live in reality.

Have some democrats said some and done some racist stuff? Yep. Are Republican principles and actions racist? Most definitely.

They are trying to paint what is a laughable false equality.

PTownsend - Google Russians helping Trump again. Unless once again you're saying you refuse to believe 'western' intelligence sources and instead trust the Kremlin's.

It appears that I'm one of those people who expect an intelligence source to actually present proof of their claim. Providing Adam "the leaker" Schiff intelligence information that doesn't include corroboration, or facts, will be considered suspect, and untrustworthy.

Mueller's investigation showed Russia did meddle. I'll take their findings as proof. Those who want to believe the Kremlin's reports and that the US lied are going to believe that regardless. I'm an American who doesn't want to see the republic torn down any farther, and even more power and control given to an executive and his global 'elite' backers, especially when some of those backers are ones like Putin's oligarchs.

The Russians did meddle in U.S. elections. However, the Democrats were claiming that Trump was colluding WITH the Russians. That was the basis of the Mueller witch hunt.

And? What's your point, as it's irrelevant as to why ptownsend brought it up, since he was replying to this:

Nevertheless, we all know Trump has been colluding with Russia when he meets with Putin in private. You don't think we're going to suddenly pretend reality isn't reality simply because Trump stacked the game with his swampies, do you?

It's not irrelevant. Someone is once again supplying shifty Schiff's "intelligence" committee with unconfirmed claims/rumors that Russia is attempting to help Sander's and Trump's political campaign. Shifty Schiff's "intelligence" committee accidentally-on-purpose leaked those rumors to their pet media outlet(s). Other DNC-pandering media outlets cut-and-paste the unconfirmed story/rumor. Meanwhile, other intelligence officials do not have any information confirming this latest underhanded DNC Schiffterism.

Could this be considered an encouragement as Bloomberg seeks reset after rough debate debut as Democrats sprint to Super Tuesday?
