If you missed the Democrat debate, you missed a fun time. The RNC was handing out flyers for the movie, 13 Hours, during the debate. The questions by the moderators were very, very far left. No candidate mentioned terrorism and foreign policy had to be dragged out of them well into the debate. Out of the box, they were asked what they would do their first 100 days in office and no one mentioned foreign policy or terrorism.
They claim to love Muslims but don’t seem to care that the mid-East is in chaos.
Bernie and Hillary brawled. Hillary raged like a mad woman and Bernie sounded like an angry old red diaper baby.
They did a lot of pandering to black people and weren’t very kind towards police.
Both Bernie and O’Malley called Hillary a liar. They got that right!
Hillary was 100% in support of every single thing Obama has done. She praised him on every issue from the financial sector, to energy, to foreign policy, health and on and on.
In discussing Wall Street, Hillary said “no one is too big for jail”. She must mean herself.
“Well, there’s no daylight on the basic premise that there should be no bank too big to fail and no individual too powerful to jail. We agree on that,” Hillary said.
Yes we do.
They want our guns. Hillary lied and said she wants to close the Charleston killer loophole which wasn’t a loophole. The Feds allowed a felon to get guns because they made a record keeping error.
Hillary said, “Yes look, I have made it clear based on Senator Sanders’ own record that he has voted with the NRA, with the gun lobby numerous times. He voted against the Brady Bill five times. He voted for what we call, the Charleston Loophole. He voted for immunity from gunmakers and sellers which the NRA said, “was the most important piece of gun legislation in 20 years…“
Bernie is now interested in lawsuits against anyone who makes, distributes or sells a gun.
O’Malley thinks the only reason for guns is to go deer hunting.
At one point, Miller asked Bernie why he accused Bill Clinton of “past transgressions,” and called them “quote, ‘totally, totally, totally disgraceful and unacceptable.’” He twice wanted to know why he did it, implying it wasn’t true.
Hillary wants universal healthcare and was annoyed with Bernie for wanting to allegedly “dismantle” Obamacare, which he doesn’t want to do. She said Obamacare is finally the path to universal healthcare.
“I am absolutely committed to universal health care. I’ve worked on this for a long time,” Hillary said.
And, she said, “We finally have a path to universal health care. We have accomplished so much already.”
She wants to sneak communist healthcare in – incrementally – and Bernie wants revolution.
Bernie said he voted for the Vets healthcare we currently have. He took credit. He’s on the record!
Hillary has been paid over $3 million in speaking fees from the health insurance industry.
Hillary said she wants to disarm Americans, arm Syria. Let’s give Hillary the same bodyguards she gave Ambassador Stevens.
Bernie thinks it’s disgusting that Assad gassed his own people but wants us to do nothing about it.
Bernie said, “And we all know, no argument, the secretary is absolutely right, Assad is a butcher of his own people, man using chemical weapons against his own people. This is beyond disgusting.”
“But I think in terms of our priorities in the region, our first priority must be the destruction of ISIS. Our second priority must be getting rid of Assad, through some political settlement, working with Iran, working with Russia.”
O’Malley thinks it’s insulting to say “boots on the ground.” Mostly he begged for 30 seconds to speak.
Hillary ruled out any ground troops though we have thousands there now.
She will go anywhere, anytime to find common ground. I’m sure many would have some suggestions.
Andrea M actually asked why we aren’t moving faster in our relations with Iran. Sanders responded saying, “I think what we’ve got to do is move as aggressively as we can to normalize relations with Iran.” Hillary said, “Well, I’m very proud of the Iran Nuclear Agreement. I was very pleased to be part of what the president put into action when he took office.”
Hillary said she was proud Republicans are her enemies but during the debate she said we can’t keep “declaring all Republicans are our enemies”. She told Anderson Cooper that during a prior debate. This was the soundbite:
ANDERSON COOPER: Which enemy that you made during your political career are you most proud of?
CLINTON: Well, in addition to the NRA, the health insurance companies, the drug companies, the Iranians; probably the Republicans.
No one called her on that but she won’t be working with them on any of Obama’s agenda items.
They all gave Obama credit for the reduction in carbon emissions. The reduction in carbon emissions was due to fracking, not solar and wind.
O’Malley said we can have debt-free college if we eliminate the super wealthy who make more than a million dollars.
Hillary and Bernie railed against the money in politics. Hillary said she knows the influence money can have on campaigns.
Check out Hillary’s donors at Open Secrets. Goldman Sachs gave Hillary $600,000 in one year.
Sanders said, “Secretary Clinton — and you’re not the only one, so I don’t mean to just point the finger at you, you’ve received over $600,000 in speaking fees from Goldman Sachs in one year.”
Bernie was after Big Pharma again but who will give him the drugs needed to revive him? He’s on his last leg.
Hillary shamelessly accused the Michigan Republican governor of racism because of the lead in the water in Flint, Michigan but ignored the Democrat mayor who is obviously more directly involved. What is really ironic is that Obama denied Governor Snyder’s plea for help for Flint, Michigan. Governor Snyder thanked Obama for the emergency declaration and for “supporting Flint during this critical situation” in a statement Saturday, but said an additional request for a major disaster declaration was denied.
