  • I do think the other 'moderate Democrat candidates' should pack it up but was not aware they were related to the Vice President.

      I believe he is referring to this confusing statement Biden made in South Carolina:
      "You’re the ones who sent Barack Obama the presidency. And I have a simple proposition here: I’m here to ask you for your help. Where I come from, you don’t go very far unless you ask. My name’s Joe Biden. I’m a Democratic candidate for the United States Senate,” he said.

      Without seeming to notice his mistake, Biden seamlessly continued, “Look me over. If you like what you see, help out. If not, vote for the other Biden. Give me a look though, OK?”

      I'll leave it to you to decipher what that means.

        Here is something that you might find amusing ... or not.

        Following MSNBC contributor Dr. Jason Johnson’s inflammatory remarks about supporters and campaign staffers of Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), the academic has been temporarily benched by the network, sources confirmed to The Daily Beast.

        In recent months, Johnson—a fixture of the network’s Democratic primary analysis—has drawn considerable heat for his relentlessly anti-Sanders commentary on MSNBC, which has also come under fire from the left for its skeptical and largely negative coverage of the democratic-socialist senator.

        During an interview last week on SiriusXM’s The Karen Hunter Show, Johnson claimed “racist white liberals” support Sanders and that the senator has done “nothing for intersectionality.”

        The MSNBC contributor then took aim at the women of color who work for Sanders. “I don’t care how many people from the island of misfit black girls you throw out there to defend you,” Johnson exclaimed.

        The remark prompted Sanders’ national press secretary Briahna Joy Gray to retort on Twitter: “I hope we can have political disputes without engaging in open racism and sexism. This misogynoir is disappointing, but not surprising from @DrJasonJohnson.”

        Johnson’s over-the-top remarks also sparked wider calls for MSNBC to fire him, but the network has not officially responded.

              You have a very, very funny way of showing it.
              "Funny," as in peculiar, not as in "ha-ha."

                It's all he's got, just let him have it.

                He sure as hell can't defend Trump on any plane of reality.
                Supporting or defending Donald Trump is such an unforgivable moral failing that it calls every bit of your judgement and character into question. Nothing about you should be trusted if you can look at this man and find redeemable value

                    Hmm, and here I thought he was talking about political repercussions but according to this link it was "violence."

                    I'm sure glad I have a rational brain, unlike others, to see through the fog.

                    By the way did the valet lose something of your?

                      Sorry TB, but I will not lower myself to your gutter level. Enjoy your time there.

                            Now that is funny as DOR says. Now this is fact over the years in that you continually post links to articles that are designed to appeal to the lowest common denominator in people, and since you post them, ergo you must have read them, consequently you must... well you can see where I am going. Pretty equivalent to all those who are panic buying everything out of CostCo in huge amounts. They aren't thinking either just simple reflexive action.

                            • So TB, if I post something that you ideologically disagree with, does that open me up to personal attacks that you tend to dish out from time to time?

                              Comment


                              • Well when you post links to absolutely stupid shit, such as the one about Schumer, then it makes one wonder what goes through your mind as it wasn't ideologically related.

                                You laud Trump, a man with zero integrity, so what does that say about you?

                                You laud Trump, a man without honor, so what does that say about you?

                                You laud Trump, a man who lies incessantly, so what does that say about you?

                                Are you not embarrassed by such a man? I couldn't live my life like that nor could I ever be associated with someone like that.

                                He is now the face of the Republican Party, a Party that was once a proud party in the 70s but not anymore. Damn, I even voted for Nixon and Reagan! It is now a party of the shortsighted and stupid ( Nixon wasn't by the way) in what they advocate. This is the Party you identify with so what is a person supposed to think...?
