Iím curious as to why you didnít say this when that other poster brought it up in his lengthy post about race.


Because you do it with the most consistency and defend it while doing so with the utmost of enthusiasm.

I've a serious question. Must you be angry and white to call out stupidity and ignorance?

The woman is not very bright


That may well be true, its just that all the hate ive seen directed at her has come from old white dudes. There is Larry Elder, the African American who seems to just have distain for Mexicans.

Or maybe you just don't agree with her viewpoints and consider her to not be bright because of that?

That answers why you call me out on it, but it doesn't answer my previous question. I guess I don't understand the point of dodging questions from me and others here, and call it "arguing".

Watch her videos and listen to the lack of knowledge on all things historic. Her diction; not too much intellectual agility here. Zero understanding of finances. The message becomes secondary when you can't get through the delivery .

I repeat, watch her videos, particularly when she is being interviewed

Anyone else ever notice this odd response from him all the time? Anyway, why must it be the last word? I have more questions for you to dodge.

What interviews are you watching? Any links of this behavior you describe? Because I've only seen her come off as intelligent and unique....that whole ink-blot test thing again....I wonder what it is.

They exist in every state and every city, unfortunately. And thereís no motivation among them to evolve to a rational thought about it. They willfully choose to be lazy and simple.

Im in the upstate, near Sburg. Im trying to place Bluffton. I can see the dang sign. I think lower state. Savannah is about 5 hrs but it seems like days for some reason. I used to go there for St PAt day.

Making an assumption about her based on her speech are we? That's prejudiced.

Not qualified to know this either - just more bias against her and her political affiliation.

No, YOU can't get through the delivery because of an accent. Others can get through it just fine. To dismiss her message because of her accent is so blatantly ignorant and bigoted, but I respect your honesty about it. Thanks for offering the last word.

Iíll tell you what, it may not matter who the Democrat candidates are. If reports are true that Republicans in Washington are turning on Trump, then Iíd be worried if I were one of them. If a Republican senator stands up to Trump, takes him down, and restores foreign relations authority, then the Democrats are going to have a very difficult time defeating a ďconservative leader that stood up to Trump, cleaned the filth that tarnished the Republican Party image, and restored dignity and class like the Reagan dayísĒ, itíll be almost impossible to beat. He/she would be hailed as a hero, even among the left. Iíd vote for that character and backbone over any of the Democrat candidates so far, especially if all they do is bash Trump during their campaigns.

I'm not sure he/she would be a hero but only someone who finally put the country and the presidency above their own self interests. I think many on the left, middle, and also the right may feel that Republicans waited far too long to take Trump to task for what he's potentially done to the country. In other words, a too little too late kind of thing.

I would also add that issues like health care, saving the middle class, huge tax cuts for the rich, etc. have energized enough voters that no matter what a Republican does to Trump, these issues may overshadow simply standing up to an incompetent and dangerous bully...

I agree, however, that the Democrat who wins the nomination needs to offer substantive ideas and pragmatic plans to address these very issues....Just bashing Trump may not be enough.

Unfortunately Newark, NJ is a very violent place to live and nobody feels safe in many areas there. Corey thinks he is a legend in his own mind but his accomplishments are pretty weak. His biggest assest for lots of democrats is he's been posturing as far left as Pelosi which will translate into a poor campaign because he will not be able to appeal to middle America.

CNN's second Presidential Town Hall will be with Howard Schultz. Geesh, it would be nice to talk to one of the many who has actually filed with the election committee to run rather than a 'maybe'.

Agree 100%.

I think CNN did a grab on HS because he probably increases ratings and would be considered the "outsider / spoiler".

I think we should get a town hall of the dozens of potential Dems or at least once they announce, as well as Trump and the possibly 1 or 2 GOP candidates should they challenge the "great one" or unless he's found to be damaged goods beyond what he was in 2015 through current.

Yeah, that is what it is. Schultz was the guy everyone was talking about, for the wrong reasons, but CNN is likely just trying to capitalize on a person that might generate more interest and viewers.

I know some of these candidates have made the rounds of being guests on the various shows, but I would really like to see them give equal time to all of them rather than cherry picking.

Regardless of Party affiliation, it is becoming more difficult in each upcoming Election to get "excited" about any Candidate wishing to live in the White House. All of the people listed by the OP are just "the next group" throwing their hats in the ring. If President Trump has accomplished anything, I think most will agree that he has lowered the standard of who is qualified. Has this really opened a discussion about Oprah Winfrey running for President? Any celebrity is now adequate? Any Politician?...Yikes.

Just as the Republicans did with McCain/Palin in 2008, the Dems will do in 2020, the next group who have "earned" a shot at being President. When was the last time a True "Leader" emerged form any Party? "Roosevelt" in '32?...Kennedy in '60?..Reagan in '80?....Obama in '08?

That is the issue with me. The difference in voting for a Leader or a candidate. No wonder there is so much Voter apathy.
