    2020 Democratic Primary Race

    Bernie ignored her campaign practically the entire time and she was arguably his most ardent support no matter what or who threw trash at him. I am not saying endorse her or go campaign for her, obviously he has his own ship to run, but he is quite simply an ungrateful prick who seems more than a little entitled. He has some good ideas, but he isn't worthy of the support he has.

    Tulsi just suspended her campaign... AND ENDORSED JOE BIDEN. Because Bernie is an asshole.

    Only thing I’m worried about now is that the means testing is too restrictive. We shall see how it plays out in Congress though

    The White House is pushing their own bill because Congress is a bunch of shit stains. The Bill Only allocating 500 billion for individuals and added means testing for Pelosi and Co. but it's a start.

    I hate to ask but what’s your view on social security, Medicaid, etc

    Nancy Pelosi is refusing to discuss UBI without some form of means-testing. Fuck Democrats. EDIT: And to be clear.. if we were talking a permanent UBI I would be more open to a means testing. I don't really like it, but if it got the job done and both sides to the table with a VERY HIGH ceiling... I could deal with it. But in this emergency situation where the White House has already said we just need to get money into peoples hands as fast as possible... and the fact they want it done within 2 weeks. Now we have Pelosi slowing shit down both in legislature and slowing down those checks after legislation is passed for people to be approved for it? Such bullshit. Party for the working class my dirty asshole (sorry, TP is in very short supply here).

    Yang and his team have been in touch with the Trump white house and he's offering their support and resources in figuring out the best way to make this happen and disperse funds.

    Mnuchin announced that he / the White House want to get cash into peoples hands who have been impacted by work closures as fast as possible -- within 2 weeks is the idea. No specifics yet, details come after. It wouldn't be universal because they say it probably won't be going to people who make a million dollars... But this is a guaranteed basic income. Mnuchin has instruction from the President to go to the Senate Republicans today to expediate these plans. Who knows what will end actually happening or passing... But Trump has come out pushing a guaranteed income (temporarily) before Bernie fucking Sanders.

    Biden committed to a female VP during the debate tonight

    But one of Bernie's campaign slogans is, " My good friend Joe Biden "

    Tulsi Gabbard introduces legislation that would fund a temporary UBI for every American ($1k a month) to combat coronavirus. Meanwhile the Fed has authorized 1.5 trillion dollars to artificially prop up money markets and banks. This money could fund UBI for every American for the next 6 months. But ya know, fuck actually helping people.

    I agree. Have any thoughts about Biden's running mate? I was thinking probably somebody more in Bernie's realm. Need a VP that can attract the progressives and young people. Warren? Bernie has been destroying Biden's record since Super Tuesday. It's all he talks about. He won't go after the dementia or creeper stuff though, you are right. That's his friend, Joe Biden, which he likes to remind us a lot. lol

    2020 Democratic Primary Race

    The exit polls say he (Biden) has a better chance against Trump. And while I agree that Trump has an edge, I am thinking that that is shrinking more and more. These states... turnout is pretty damn good. I don't know if it will be enough or if it will even carry over to the general... but it is encouraging to see actual numbers up, because that's where the Dems need to be -- especially in places like Virginia, Michigan, Minnesota, etc etc. Biden is winning those areas over Bernie by HUGE numbers. There is zero doubt left in my mind that Biden is the better candidate to take on Trump (relative to Bernie). Bernie is too hostile to people who think differently than him, and that is very off putting to me. Even during his press conference today... He refused to pivot his campaign, he refused to extend an invitation to moderates or even Republicans that hate Trump... He spent the whole time pandering to his base even more, just like he always does. He talked about how dominantly old people like Biden... Which is true. But Bernie needs those people too... lol. The youth and latino vote alone is not winning him this election. If there was ever a time to start bringing people together and extending your hand to those who may disagree with you on a few things... Last night / tonight was it. Bernie failed. AGAIN. He is consistently failing but refuses to change anything. I am really beginning to wish Bernie never ran at all. Another thing I am more convinced of than ever is that Bernie was never going to get anything done if he did get into the White House, as Stevo and I were discussing a few pages back. He would've never made any ground on anything. Guess who did extend a hand? Biden... He thanked Bernie in his speech. He said he wants those voters and how valuable they are come the fall. That's a leader. That's a president. Bernie is incapable of adapting and because of it he is going to lose the nomination to a guy who can't remember his own name. That's sad. Depending on how Bernie bows out of this thing and if he helps bridge the gap between progressives and moderates... he could do some serious damage (or serious good) to the party or to the progressive cause in general. I still think he can make some noise at the debate, but I am not convinced he will do anything new or different from what he has already done or said.

    I agree that Biden will get beat. He just had a great speech though. His team should tell him to carry a teleprompter everywhere he goes and never say anything on his own. A starkly different message than Bernie, who is declining to speak to night.... That’s so insane. There’s millions of people voting for Bernie tonight and he won’t even go out and talk. He is mentally done it seems like.

    2020 Democratic Primary Race

    Exit polls are showing voters are more confident in Biden (idk why but that’s what it is). Keeping polls open (which I agree with) would just make his campaign look even worse. He’s getting pounded by like 100k votes. Lol

    2020 Democratic Primary Race

    Only half the vote is in but Bernie is getting slaughtered in Michigan. Beginning to think this Bernie coalition is a bit misleading. Looking like a big chunk of his support in 2016 was just anti-Hillary.

    Tulsi needs to drop out so we can support this guy... Kappa “ We can only re-elect Donald Trump “
  18. Favre4Ever

    2020 Democratic Primary Race

    Point taken, but I don't think Tulsi is really thwarting that effort at all. Biden's campaign said they just raised $22M in less than a week which is almost what he totaled last quarter... Bernie is divisive and isn't unifying anybody anyway so... lol

    I don't really disagree this far in... But, does it even really matter? She's at less than a percent, isn't she? She doesn't really take up any air time. I was just googling her official Super Tuesday results, and there are a number of websites that don't even mention her. As long as she isn't misleading her donors, I don't see a huge problem with her going around the country listening to concerns of Americans. I was really surprised Warren ended her campaign... I was never going to vote for her, but she had a very strong (IMO) message and she seems genuinely passionate. I wouldn't have held it against her at all if she kept going, even though the nomination after ST was impossible or near impossible. And to be honest, I really hate the idea of the establishment contacting these campaigns and telling them to leave the race. I get the idea behind it... but even when Yang dropped out, it really unsettled me that he said outside people were telling him his campaign was doing no good and that he was best served shutting it down. No, he wasn't going to win the nomination, but his campaign was about more than that to a lot of people. It's this practical blackmail and forced consolidation that has given us a creeper dementia-ridden Joe Biden as the party leader who is going to be factually obliterated by Bernie in the debates and then ridiculed and humiliated by Trump in the general. That isn't winning or good for the country.

    They are the ones who ignored Yang all the time. #Math clearly isn’t their thing. Lol

    Elizabeth Warren has suspended her campaign. She will not endorse either candidate (until a nominee is chosen I assume)

    I was reading about some of that and how some people were waiting in like 7 hour lines... pretty ridiculous. Needs to be changed / fixed. Added stations, added polling areas, working machines, etc. I don’t know if we can say that substantially hurt Bernie though. A lot of the areas being F’d over were neighborhoods of color. Bernie has been doing well with Latinos so there’s probably some there, but lots of black neighborhoods as well which are overwhelmingly Biden. Again, obviously an issue that needs to be fixed. Don’t think that means there’s a Bernie conspiracy

    Dude.. Bernie had another pretty shit press conference (just my opinion). He sounded pretty defeated again and just blamed people and the media for his beat down last night. Not saying he is wrong, or that I blame him for feeling like crap... But perhaps it's time to deliver his message in a new way? All he is doing is pandering to the people who already like him. He needs to asses where he stands and how he actually begins growing his base. Regardless of the delegates awarded, the fact is he got 31% of the vote Tuesday, Biden was at almost 40%. A million more people voted for Biden than Bernie... I am not saying that he needs to change his message, but just the way he delivers it. I don't know how Bernie goes into the next debate and says, " I am the best suited to beat Trump ". if he can't even rally to beat Sleepy Joe.
