The Democrat candidates cannibalize each other.

Every one of them has to prove that he/she is the most sensitive to the "rights" of oppressed persons of color, raped and rape-threatened women, gays, lesbians, non-English speakers and trannies. No wonder Trump blows them out of the water. It's such obvious bullshit.

I knew Bloomberg would take it on the chin on the Identity Politics and political correctness stuff.

Privately he is a normal man who cusses and makes crude jokes.....and he CAN'T say the obvious thing about stop-and-frisk...which is that blacks commit 12X more crimes against whites than vice versa, even though they're only 13% of the population..and that blacks and hispanics together account for 80% of the gang population in America...or that 52% of youth crime is committed by black juveniles, even though they only represent 16% of the youth population.

(Also.......58% of youth homicide arrests and 67% of youth robbery arrests are black kids.)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Race_and_crime_in_the_United_States

But that's all  because the police are racist.......Right. Gimme a fuckin' break.

But at election time, Democrats have to appeal to the black vote...and the social justice vote.

I am sure that black voters are probably not any more criminal that white voters......but it isn't the voters that are the problem.....

Oh, never mind...I'm a racist too, I guess. Everybody who doesn't buy the bullshit is racist or sexist or some other kind of -ist.....

And the Democrats wonder why the working class whites don't show up for them anymore. It's a joke.

Maybe Bernie can get the nomination. Only Bernie or Bloomberg can win against Trump, and it won't be easy. If any one of the others gets nominated, the Dems are done, imho.

I must have absorbed more of my Roman catholic descent then I thought. I think Americans need to experience trump for 4 more years just to plumb the depths of their soul. No reprieve no false redemption out and out rock bottom... I do not want it but maybe it's what it takes.
If its important then try something, fail, disect, learn from it, try again, and again and again until it kills you or you succeed.

The thing is that we might end up plumbing much deeper depths than the ones we're at now......in Dante's Inferno  parlance we're only down to maybe level four. We could fall the rest of the way very quickly.

Re: Election Errata - It's unanimous: a horrible night for Bloomberg
« Reply #1191 on: February 20, 2020, 12:48:05 PM »
CNN Opinion commentators weigh in on the Democratic presidential debate in Las Vegas, Nevada. The views expressed in this commentary are solely their own. View more opinion articles on CNN.

SE Cupp: The love fest is over

Well it's about time.
It took, evidently, Michael Bloomberg on the debate stage for Democrats to realize that this primary can't be a group effort and a love fest forever. There can only be one winner. To be that final candidate, they needed to take each other on, and not coyly or with flattering reassurances. To win they needed to point out their differences on record, policy, personality and values and they needed to do it decisively.
From Elizabeth Warren taking on allegations that Bloomberg made awful comments about women (he generally denies this), to Pete Buttigieg taking on Bernie Sanders' war on capitalism, to Sanders returning fire on Pete's donors, this is what needed to happen for this field to finally consolidate and give Democratic voters a clear frontrunner.
We'll see ultimately who benefits the most from the knives out night. But one thing is certain: this was long overdue.
SE Cupp is a CNN political commentator and the host of "SE Cupp Unfiltered."

David Axelrod: Bloomberg's disastrous debut

Mike Bloomberg has had the most spectacular paid media run up in the history of presidential politics -- nearly half a billion dollars in ubiquitous advertising that lifted him in the polls before he ever really joined the fray.
But, eventually, they had to roll out the product -- and when the big night came, it was a disastrous debut.
Prodded by the moderators, virtually everyone on the stage in Wednesday's debate took turns pounding on the billionaire and former mayor of New York. And the attacks ranged from challenges to his stop-and-frisk policies, to allegations of abusive behavior toward women in his workplace, to his cleaving in his ads to former President Barack Obama -- with whom he wasn't always close or supportive -- to his past Republicanism and to general sniping about his vast wealth.
"Democrats take a huge risk if we just substitute one arrogant billionaire for another," was Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren's open mere minutes into the debate.
"Let's put forth someone who is actually a Democrat," chimed in former Mayor Pete Buttigieg.
Warren and Buttigieg were the night's big winners. Desperately in need of a revival, former Vice President Joe Biden found new energy, vigorously assaulting Bloomberg and frontrunner Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders. The New Hampshire debate champ, Amy Klobuchar, was knocked off stride early by Buttigieg and never regained her footing.
But the big loser was Bloomberg.
He was by turns peevish and defensive, complete with eye-rolling and derisive smirks. It was a lost night for the candidate who has been laying claim to be the only moderate who can defeat Sanders and topple Trump.
Bloomberg can survive this because he is speaking to more people every day through his ads than will have watched this debate. But it is only going to get harder and he is going to have to do much better in next week's South Carolina debate -- and beyond -- to ride the wave of his prodigious investment.
David Axelrod, a senior CNN political commentator and host of "The Axe Files," was senior adviser to President Barack Obama and chief strategist for the 2008 and 2012 Obama presidential campaigns.

Errol Louis: Warren lives to fight another day

Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren won the debate by going aggressively after the other candidates on the stage, including a sudden, unsolicited critique of the health care plans of Sens. Bernie Sanders and Amy Klobuchar and former Mayor Pete Buttigieg.
She notably drew former Mayor Mike Bloomberg into a devastating cross-examination about non-disclosure agreements signed by former employees of Bloomberg's financial information company, warning against "the drip, drip, drip of women saying they have been harassed."
Warren had no choice but to take the fight to her rivals. She finished third in Iowa, despite meticulous preparation and what was described as the best field operation in the state. Days later, she placed fourth in New Hampshire, the latter an especially poor performance given the fact that southern New Hampshire shares a media market with Warren's home state of Massachusetts.
The entrance of Bloomberg makes things even more difficult for Warren. Sanders appears to be attracting young people and left-leaning older activists, while mainstream candidates like former Vice President Joe Biden have a base of support among moderate voters. That leaves Warren without a natural base.
With the real prospect of elimination looming, Warren had to pound the other Democrats to shake loose some of their support and save her campaign. Warren called for environmental cleanup in communities of color, a strategy aimed squarely at shoring up support from the base of the party.
And after her performance, she lives to fight another day.
Errol Louis is the host of "Inside City Hall," a nightly political show on NY1, a New York all-news channel.

Patti Solis Doyle: Bloomberg needs to learn how to be a candidate

This was Michael Bloomberg's first debate on the national stage, and it showed. He disappeared for the first 30 minutes, and when the time finally came for him to answer questions on the stop and frisk policing policy during his tenure as New York mayor, and allegations of sexism at his workplace, he was wildly insufficient. He was not relatable or empathetic. At times, he sounded insensitive and offensive.
He improved vastly on more comfortable ground, such as climate change. But it was clear that the rest of the field has had much more experience in actual campaigning and debating. The question for the Bloomberg team: what to do now? Bloomberg needs to get out on the trail in an aggressive way; do every interview he can; answer every question from the media and from voters; get out there and earn the nomination just like everybody else.
Patti Solis Doyle, a CNN commentator, was an assistant to the President and senior adviser to then-first lady Hillary Clinton, was chief of staff on Clinton's 2000 and 2006 Senate campaigns, and Clinton's presidential campaign manager in 2007 and early 2008. She is president of Solis Strategies, a Washington-based consulting firm that specializes in serving nonprofits, nongovernmental organizations and corporations. Follow her @pattisolisdoyle.

Paul Begala: Dems' circular firing squad

Mike Bloomberg lost. Everyone else had their ups and downs, but at the end of the Democratic cage match, there was one clear winner: Donald Trump.
The divisive, dishonest, disgusting incumbent President could not have scripted a better reality show. For the umpteenth time, Democrats flyspecked each other's health care plans, but where was the mention that Trump wants to cut Medicare and Medicaid?
They attacked each other over how they would pay for health care, but never mentioned that Trump is in court as we speak seeking to give insurance companies the right to discriminate against you or deny you coverage altogether if you have a preexisting condition.
Freshly impeached, Mr. Trump has never once enjoyed the support of the American people. His only hope is to drag his Democratic opponent down to his level. Tonight, the Democratic candidates seem all-in on Trump's strategy. He may not even need Putin's help if the Democrats keep doing his job for him.
There were tactical moments that were thrilling. Elizabeth Warren gutted Bloomberg on his non-disclosure agreements in cases of alleged sexual harassment. Pete Buttigieg coolly eviscerated the two frontrunners at once, declaring Democrats should "put forward somebody who is actually a Democrat," not Bernie Sanders who "wants to burn this party down," while Bloomberg "wants to buy this party out."
Biden showed fire, Klobuchar showed grit, Bernie Sanders showed he doesn't give a darn about releasing his medical records, despite promising to do so.
At the end of the night, the most passionate supporters of each candidate could probably find something to crow about. But for those of us who simply want to unseat Trump, this was another Democratic circular firing squad.
Paul Begala, a Democratic strategist and CNN political commentator, was a political consultant for Bill Clinton's presidential campaign in 1992 and served as a counselor to Clinton in the White House.

Van Jones: Bloomberg met an iceberg called Warren

Former Mayor Mike Bloomberg went into this debate as a one-billion-dollar Titanic, convinced his ad deluge made him invincible. Then he met an iceberg called Elizabeth Warren. She took him to task and prosecuted him in a way I have never seen in a debate.
Worse, Bloomberg simply was not prepared. He walked into his dream scenario: Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders rising, former Vice President Joe Biden falling -- and everyone needing a hero to walk onto the stage. Then his dream scenario turned into a nightmare.
His answer on "stop and frisk" was awful -- and a lie. The policy did not end because he discovered what was happening and "cut 95% of it out." He loudly championed the policy throughout his mayoral administration, even though the evidence showed it did little to prevent any crime. It stopped because a court order forced the city of New York to curtail the practice.
He went on to stumble trying to disavow an idea he floated in a 2008 speech, in which he suggested that ending redlining, the discriminatory practice that targets black and brown voters, had helped cause the 2008 financial crash. He even took a gratuitous shot at people who use TurboTax, for some reason.
A lot of African Americans were willing to place some measure of hope in Bloomberg. All they wanted to see was some contrition and some professionalism. Bloomberg gave them neither. He is spending so much on ads that it may not matter. But the debate was a warning that if he wants to be the nominee -- much less beat President Donald Trump -- he needs to go back to work, listen to his team, then come back and do better.
Van Jones is CEO of REFORM Alliance and co-founder of #cut50, a bipartisan criminal justice initiative of the Dream Corps. He is also the author of "Beyond the Messy Truth: How We Came Apart, How We Come Together." In 2009, Jones worked as the Green Jobs Adviser in the Obama White House.

The most interesting thing about Bloomberg, which nobody has yet written about, AFAIK...is this.

He is definitely running for only ONE reason. He wants Trump out.

 He thinks Trump is bad for the country (which is right).....and it appears that he is willing to spend JUST AS MUCH MONEY AS IT TAKES....to buy the Presidency....if it can be bought with money.

I don't think he is necessarily out to get any particular Democratic candidate...If Bloomberg thought Bernie would beat Trump...he'd go back home and vote for him...just like I intend to, If Bernie gets nominated. Also, if Bernie gets the Democratic nomination and has great momentum, I would expect Bloomberg to give him his full financial support.

I do NOT think Bloomberg wanted to run. He decided to run because he really believed (and I'm sure he paid for the best analysis money can buy.......just to find out) that NONE of the current crop of Democratic Party candidates could defeat Trump, and he thought it was worth blowing as much of his fortune as it took, just to save America from Trump and the Koch strip-miners and the know-nothing US Republican Senate that is intent on running the country straight into the ground.

Maybe not quite as sexy for you socialists as Bernie (and frankly, for me either)...but I am impressed that one of the richest guys in the world...who has nothing to worry about (no matter who wins)  with his net worth of over 64 BILLION bucks....that he cares enough about America to make a huge sacrifice to do what he thinks is right.

If you don't give him credit for that...if you think he is out for his own power and wealth, or to feather his own nest...I think you're very wrong. Mike Bloomberg is a very loyal American who wants the US Constitution to prevail and for the Presidency to be an office that serves the people.

I'm not sure you can buy the Democratic Party nomination...or the general election......but if money can do it, we will find out. 

I always thought that unlimited money was the best asset to have in a national political race in this country...but it might not be enough......since the Democrats have painted themselves into a corner by making so many promises to so many special groups...and since their candidate has to give lip service to so many highly questionable ideas that Trump can just ridicule on Twitter....and get even more votes from people who hate that totally fake Demo moral and ethical stance.....

I don't care if you hate Bloomberg......but I'd like for you to understand that he isn't running just because he wants to be President. He's running because he knows that if he doesn't run and Trump wins, that he will hate himself for the rest of his life for not trying to do what he could to prevent that.

I just have to admire that. I wish more rich people had his kind of patriotism. It takes a real patriot to do what Mike Bloomberg is doing. Make no mistake about that.

You could be right. It may be that the reason you haven't read about it is that the theory requires an inspection of his inner motivations, which he is not likely to share.

MB has assembled the best teams that money could buy-- advertising, marketing, digital, field ops... he's even paying people to make social media posts about him. Why someone didn't do a better job prepping him for the debate is just gobsmacking to me. He looked like he didn't 't really want to be there, and wasn't prepped and loaded to block the obvious haymakers the progressives threw at him.

He should have given the debate a pass. His pros should have foreseen that it couldn't help him.  It just set him up to be attacked by the very people who should be pulling together to beat Trump...but who are too busy trying to out-PC each other. Debates are only good if you know you'll win.

Kennedy killed Nixon in the 1st televised debate. It's why Kennedy won. Debates are great for charismatic people who can move audiences with their  rhetoric...not for geeky guys like Bloomberg.

Bernie is the best Demo candidate on the stump. He is hitting his stride. I hope his bodyguards are good. Some people would do anything to take him down, at this point. The convention worries me....and not jut because of the DNC machine,

How many here have actually worked for a Billionaire or known any personally besides me?  I suggest my perspective has merit.  My perspective leads me to a thesis.  Rich people will destroy the world. 

Billionaire power will let bad ideas run the show until the curtain comes down if people don't rise up.  Rich people think it is enough to to make a pile of money any way they can after which they think donating a small percentage, a very small percentage when you look at what they actually have, to good causes makes it right.  After that they see everything as all good.  They think that they have done all they have to do.  Why?  This is why:

Quote
“It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends on his not understanding it.”

In their case assets substitute for a paycheck because their assets rival the assets of god.  And unlike some people they can't change where their paychecks come from.  Billionaires are not capable of leading to existential change.  All they will do are things that will maintain the status-quo as a variant of what already is.  With them ruling.  After all is said and done nothing will be fixed or changed because billionaires operate from the moral authority of money and money has no moral authority.  Money is abstraction, a tool, a number.  That is all money is but many people actually think money exists.  A bell shaped curve most likely determines a person awareness of this fact.

Bezos is the Amazon Prime example right now.  I don't know the details but a headline came out a day or so ago that he is donating ten billion dollars to fight climate change.  Ten billion dollars wasted to jump start his billionaire version of a green new deal which has no chance of working out.  Fixing the planet with one hand while you destroy it with the other will not a planet save.  The thermodynamics don't work out.  The math falls flat and that is not the end of it.

In the long run Bloomberg will be just as bad as Trump.  Bloomberg can dance to the right tune now but once in he will dance to his own music.  And billionaires still die and when they do their heirs take charge of their money and then suddenly what little conscience their money had, has none.

I provide this errata with free shipping.

Hindsight being 20-20 and all. But my point was that he/his team were irresponsible AF for not prepping him better.

It just set him up to be attacked by the very people who should be pulling together to beat Trump...but who are too busy trying to out-PC each other.

You sure as hell didn't watch the same debate I did. candidates staked out sharp differences, especially on policy. This was the only debate that held my interest (for as long as it did.) Coming up on Super Tuesday nut-cutting time.

I have some sincere suggestions for what you can do with your chronic "anti-PC" white privilege horseshit. They are mostly anatomically inpossible.

More power to both of you.  I could not make it through to the end.  The candidates even if they have enlightenment in their noggins can't put out anything but a sophomoric understanding of the climate and economic problems our nation faces.  It was late, I was tired and I was going to get upset over the bullshit if I listened any longer.  I did not need to see if Bloomberg could answer a question or not.  I know where he comes from and for me, that is enough.

For others knowing where he comes from will .... get him a vote.  They too will not care if he can answer a question or not.

Bernie is the best Demo candidate on the stump. He is hitting his stride. I hope his bodyguards are good. Some people would do anything to take him down, at this point. The convention worries me....and not jut because of the DNC machine,

Is there another Sirhan Sirhan on the horizon?  This scene is the one that turned me off from politics and voting for the rest of my life.  I was 11 years old.

How many here have actually worked for a Billionaire or known any personally besides me?  I suggest my perspective has merit.  My perspective leads me to a thesis.  Rich people will destroy the world. 

Me, for one.

In college, Rick MacArthur was one of my best friends.  That is the MacArthur of the Foundation and now the Publisher of Harper's Magazine.  He was Managing Editor of the Columbia Spectator when I was the Photography Editor.

I also met several of the Rockefellers when I was a boy in Brazil and Dad the Pigman was making all the bad loans to South American countries.
