Castro on feisty Biden exchange: 'I wasn't taking a shot at his age'
"I wasn't taking a shot at his age, I was taking a shot at the fact that he had just said the words 'buy in,' you would have to 'buy in,' "

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T


White House hopeful Julián Castro defended his attack on Joe Biden in the latest Democratic debate, insisting he was not targeting the former vice president's age during a feisty exchange on health care.

Apparently …..AGE isn't always a precursor to a  degree in "Moron" !

Well You have to admit it was the only interesting part of the debate other than free shit and more taxes.

It amazes me that with all these "Progressives" we have on this site none of them discuss the performance of their favorite candidates, I hate President Trump isn't going to win elections.

I think you are the only one to feature an article on last night's DNC debate. Ya, I think as usual Castro came out as way over the top. Joe Biden was finally able to somewhat hold his own, though still fumbling with words. Warren, the media choice, failed to score any points. 

What I didn't understand is why Jorge Ramos, who is nothing more than an advocate for migration into the US, was given a seat as a journalist?

It was more of the same from the DNC.

In all fairness, there were a few candidates that said that they should stop it. Really, it was on Castro that was out of line. 

I have read some polls and it he didn't come of well at all.

Castro is desperate to maintain any relevance at all at this point and not doing a very good job of it. I doubt he will garner much support going forward, but, he is obviously someone who can't stand being wrong, so he will hang in there for as long as he can.

Gee, I didn't know your name was Castro. I watched the debate too, and Biden slipped up on his answer, just flipped it out without thinking. Or adding that little "and if they can't afford it "and if they can't afford it,  they can get subsidized" and as usual, just blew his cool.

Biden has shown a few times his memory is hardly perfect.

Are you defending Biden because he's old, or complaining about Castro because he's young, or is this just another slam against anybody not a trumpite as usual?

Just curious, which Democrat are you planning to vote for anyway?

It looks like this was a card Castro was just itching to play because he threw it out at a moment when it wasn't accurate to say that Biden was wrong. That shows desperation to strike the blow. Too bad he missed. In the end, it makes Castro look bad and will only help Biden. Bad strategy.

So...I'm not really watching the clown car until we get closer to time, but so far I have Biden as one of the only sane candidates in that field.  A bit senile, but not batshit.

Do they have anybody else who doesn't want to outlaw my health insurance, double my taxes, force my job overseas and cause the market to cut my IRA in half, all in the name of "justice"?  Anyone?

True, well said. The flip side of that is he DID make a point. Biden does gaff fairly often, (my dad is 97 and doesn't gaff half as much as biden does). Is Biden showing his age? Yes and while I didn't think Castro's slam was appropriate, he was right. The debate cycle, (both left and right), is about weeding out those candidates that simply cannot get votes to beat the opposing party, (which I honestly find to be shitty because we should be voting for who will be the best for the country in all aspects).

It is clear that after the debate there are only 2 options as Dem candidates. Biden and Warren. One is a centrist and one a far left liberal who want s to give everything away for free. It will boil down to Biden who will be schooled by Trump in 2020.
