CBS Democratic Presidential Debate

ICYMI Because I didn’t see it last night. Watched “GIANT” with Liz Taylor, Rock Hudson, and James Dean. Talk about social consciousness in a 1956 movie classic!

Anyhoo…

Democratic presidential candidates Bernie Sanders, left, Hillary Rodham Clinton and Martin O’Malley participate in a Democratic presidential primary debate, Nov. 14, 2015, in Des Moines, Iowa.

Sanders & O’Malley took it to Hillary on IRAQ.

SHOUT OUT to Ellihaas!

“Ugh, and the set-up continues as planned. It’s the Hillary show, starring Hillary and the other two brought in from the street to pretend we’re really having a primary…She even pauses for applause – in a debate!

The whole thing is so contrived and mediocre… Let Hillary bloviate and lie through her teeth while the other two just stand there stuttering for fear they’ll be accused of ‘misogyny’ or scuffing up our ‘best shot’ at the presidency. As an audience filled with DNC picked Hillary supporters cheer on and as she performs to script for them – and oops, mustn’t forget of course to once or twice humor the Obama coalition with her well-rehearsed but still insincere and gratuitous ‘President Obama does not get enough credit’ bit…

This my friends is NOT how it’s supposed to work…This is not how the primary debates of a great party of the people with more than it fair share of smart, credible, capable, knowledgable, qualified potential candidates who can debate and engage and tell truths – even scuff each other up as often and consistently happened in 2008 when we were told that it was a good thing as it prepares the candidate for the general debate with the Republican who would be ruthless and unrelenting and would not be using kid gloves…

When your lips speak the rehearsed it’s all about the children, their potential and the future, and yet your aura screams, it’s all about me and my entitled butt sitting in the Oval office as a privileged white woman because I’m owed it and it’s my turn…

It’s so depressing…”

      Thank you…I was so frustrated watching that debate, because I knew we could do so much better…But this how the Clintons and Debbie Wasserman-Shultz want it…And unfortunately for us, what the Clintons want as far as the DNC is concerned, the Clintons get…

    This Was the Most Important Exchange of the Democratic Debate
    Watch Hillary Clinton say she supports Wall

    Street because of 9/11.

        She must really think we’re all just so stupid..

        Even her so-called expertise on foreign affairs was nowhere to be found…She sounded as unimpressive, unconvincing and as mediocre as anyone who didn’t hold that position…

        I’d wager that even someone like say Deval Patrick who was never SoS would have done much better – and he certainly would have done a politically savvier job of calling out Hillary’s many lies on that stage – and in such an effective and slick way that it would be difficult to accuse him of misogyny – except of course by Hillary and her folks..
