Democrats Kicking  Butt In Day Two Debate

The Democrats are having a lively and informative debate on the second night. All 10 of these people would be a vast improvement over Donald Trump. 

So far I would say Kamala Harris and Bernie Sanders are leading the charge. Marianne Williamson of all people, is also kicking right wing behind. 

This debate is what we're talkin about !

All ten of these people are doing well, it is hard to choose between them.

Sounds like Biden was the whipping boy tonight.

It's going on according to plan....get rid of the only sane and moderate voice.

Something new for Colonel Sanders - someone gave him a comb and showed him how to use it.

I'm surprised you'd gush so openly about a party that has, in the words of the House Progressive Caucus a "child abuse caucus" and according to the Chief of staff of AOC has members in Congress who want to treat black and brown people the same way southern democrats did in the 40s.

Problematic!

You are trying to sow division among Democrats, lol.  I don't think too may Democrats care about your analysis of their candidates.

Sounds like the Congressional Progressive Caucus did that already today.

No need for Republicans to do anything except sit back and watch the clown show.

Did a Democrat al least pull a Julian Castro and get a nice Jewish lady to teach them how to speak a few word of Spanish so they can sound authentic?

That’s how you win!

What are you trying to say?  The southern Democrats of the 1940s were avowed racists who tried to deny non-whites equal rights.

Which democrats are racists?

Those racist southern democrats let the party because they felt betrayed by the civil rights movement and Johnson signing the Equal Rights Act.  The south switched from blue to red between 1950 and 1996. The racist south is now a republican stronghold.

I agree with him. Blue Dog democrats (center/right democrats) do tend to tolerate racism that liberals or progressives do not. They aren't full on racists but they are also not progressives like Bernie, Liz or Pete. Given Hillary's previous stances on social issues such as LGBT rights and race, I would consider her to be a Blue Dog democrat and not a progressive or a liberal.   Those blue dogs would have been moderate Republicans 50 years ago.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's chief of staff deleted a tweet that compared Democrats belonging to the Blue Dog Caucus to the white, southern Democrats of a bygone era.
"Instead of 'fiscally conservative but socially liberal,' let's call the New Democrats and Blue Dog Caucus the 'New Southern Democrats.' They certainly seem hell bent to do to black and brown people today what the old Southern Democrats did the 40s," Saikat Chakrabarti tweeted.

The idea that none of these people could hold their own on a debate stage with Donald Trump is nonsense. From what I see, all of them could stomp him , and will. 

Very impressive night for the Democratic Party.

Kicking right wing behind. LOL!

Oh, it is some kicking, when only one side is allowed to play!

And here dumb old me thought that the debates were supposed to distinguish the Democratic candidates from one another.

Sounds more like an "I Hate Trump More Than You DO"-fest!

Attacking Trump is what is needed, and I am glad they are stepping up to the plate. 

If you are so seeking peace though, why don't you send a message to President* Trump and ask him to stop attacking Democrats and liberals and everyone else who looks crosseyed at him.

Sounds like Dems can dish it out but get all upset when it is handed back to them.

Personally, I feel it is a mistake to run solely on bashing Trump, but, hey, whatever floats their boat. We have already seen how that played out.

Sometimes history repeats itself, especially when people refuse to learn from it.

I like it!

It's very simple, you both offer the people better ideas, and attack the buffoon who holds the office now. You do both. It's not rocket science.

So you are complaining about the Democratic candidates attacking Trump, but are not willing to tell Trump to stop attacking the Democrats.  No surprise there.

Just noticing is all.

The only thing I dont like about this is that they have almost completely ignored Andrew Yang. Anyone who qualified for the debate should be given a chance to speak.

I dont think she's quite qualified to be president, but then neither is Trump.

All the candidates raised their hands to give illegal aliens health care. That will hurt them all in the general.

Why not? Is there much Democrats aren't willing to give illegal aliens?

They put them above US citizens.

I'm afraid they may be better than us.

As a matter of fact the dems have it right, Open borders, free health care, and a pathway to citizenship for the illegal immigrants!

Free tuition for the students, free Medicare for all and abortion on demand even for trans men who can"t get pregnant!

There is no "free health care" other than for people who cannot afford it.  Should poor people die because they inconvenience you Vic? 

Universal health care will be paid for by taxes. Presumably the tax system to fund a universal health care system will be as fair as it can be. If it's not as fair as it can be then it has to be retooled until it is. 

As for "free tuition" the idea behind free college is that , today, and in the future certainly, a college education or some other form of education beyond high school is a necessity.  When the society created the concept of public high school to a great extent that is all that was needed to have a good job and a good life. That is no longer the case so the concept of "free school" may need to be expanded.  This is where wealth tax and high income taxes on multi millionaires comes in.

I must be the guy in the Charles Dickens classic who says If they would rather die, they’d better do it, and decrease the surplus population” !

Universal health care will be paid for by taxes. 

Oh ya!, that is the part of it that people like Bernie Sanders don't like to talk about. The part that is the first thing grown ups think of!

So we have been told for a few decades, even though others here have told me that it's never been a policy.

When the society created the concept of public high school to a great extent that is all that was needed to have a good job and a good life. That is no longer the case so the concept of "free school" may need to be expanded. 

John, do you know why College tuitions got to be so outrageously high?  Answer: The federal government in 2010 took over the student loan business. That's when colleges went to town on raising the cost of an education. The solution is really very simple and it's one that even Bernie would like. Establish a permanent ceiling on how much a university can charge. I think $3,000 a year is reasonable. How about you?
