Democratic Presidential Campaigns for 2020
Posted 01 July 2019 - 12:39 PM
Harris tore your boy Biden a new one last night. She basically called him not a racist buuuuuuuuuuut...you we against forces busing, and she knew he couldnt say out loud forced busing was bad policy to that crowd.
Sadly, that is the truth. 2020 is shaping up to be another sh*t sandwich vs the giant douche. If Biden gets the nom, I'll vote for him, but the rest of these jokers will cause me to vote 3rd party again.
Harris is already receiving backlash for her accusations, and when it comes to helping black people, she does not have much of le to stand on, considering her history as a prosecutor, and those it hurt the most. That, and a number of black activists are reminding people of what they've said all along: that Harris does not share their unique experiences as ADOS (American Descendants of Slaves), offers policies that would hurt that community, or try to lump their problems together with every group (she panders to), instead of addressing their specific problems that are quite separate from the usual package of Latinos and gays.
So, while Biden needed to be called out, Harris is as manipulator as ever, as she is the wrong person to act as the defender of anyone identifying themselves as ADOS.
As for the rest of the debate...rinse and repeat of promises the world knows they will not be able push through as president.

From that perspective, these debates are still important.

So many of these 1% or less pollers should be running for senate or anything other than president. There's maybe 5 or so that have any legitimate shot at the nomination, and you know they have to know that.
Maybe that is their plan, and they are just in the primary to get visibility.

I was at my second job when I posted that and was actually going to link to the changes the DNC made. It was because of what happened with Bernie in the last primaries and the caucuses. But i had a chat and stopped. Meant to come back to that. Sorry. It was a change to the superdelegate rule. It doesn't really help much but I'm pretty sure we'll see more dumbness coming soon.
... the party has made a significant change for 2020. Superdelegates will no longer vote on the first ballot at the convention unless there is no doubt about the outcome. To win on the first ballot, the frontrunner must secure the majority of pledged delegates available during the nominating contests (primary and caucus) leading up to the Democratic Convention.

Oh, goody. Now Beto O'Rourke is claiming he and his wife discovered they have ancestors who owned slaves. Funny how this did not come up earlier. Funny that in the wake of all things race & Kamala Harris at the second debate, everyone wants to become vocal/"woke" about race.
Clealy, this empty suit/skull is another Elizabeth Warren-eqsue racial opportunist, using the life experiences and pain of others to make himself relevant. It will be such a nice moment when he drops out.
