  1. The narrative that Democrats who REALLY want to beat Trump should support Bloomberg: 1) Seems almost exclusively to be promoted by Bloomberg supporters; and 2) Seems to be unsupported and wrong to me.
  2. What should we do if we dont want him to be the Democratic nominee?
  3. I actually sorta agree with this overall sentiment.
  4. My 16 year old daughter, the leading internet proponent of the “Mayor Pete is faking being gay” theory, just told me about another mini-controversy. It Is relatable to all of us here that have accidentally posted something from the wrong alias account. Apparently top Buttigieg staffer Lis Smith has been using a fake twitter account to promote both Pete and herself, and to bad mouth other candidates in the race. Here’s the (now deleted) tweet where she screwed up. She accidentally tweeted from the fake account when it was supposed to be coming from her real account. Read through the comments to this tweet for some of the stuff that was tweeted from the questionable account. Here’s a good tweet compiling a few of the comments. This is a link to the profile of the “Pete Buttigieg supporter from Nigeria” that was allegedly really Lis Smith. Hooray internet!
  5. This article should be mandatory reading for anyone that was involved in the discussion about how Bloomberg’s wealth has influenced his chances in this race.
  6. Randall, I’m sorry I haven’t posted in this thread until now, I haven’t wanted to read it. I’m hoping for all the best for you and your family. We go back a long time on this board, even though we’ve never met I feel like you’re an old friend.
  7. This view is not universally agreed upon.
  8. I understand that's the view of a lot of people. I still think Bernie or Warren has a better chance against Trump than against a generic Republican.
  9. Yeah, this Slate article makes that exact same argument.
  10. That base of supporters makes up well under 50% of the electorate and most people outside that group can't stand him. I know you've said that you would vote for Trump over Bernie, but I think there are a substantial number of moderate types that would hold their nose and vote for Bernie over Trump, despite their distaste for Bernie's policies, just as a "lesser of two evils" choice. If the Republican nominee were someone like McCain, all of those people would vote Republican instead.
  11. I'll take that chance. Trump is scary for sure but he is still a vulnerable candidate, this might be the best chance of my lifetime to get someone like Bernie or Warren elected. I don't see it getting any easier in the future.
  12. You are correct, and the scenario you describe seems very likely to me. Tom Perez should be spending every waking hour trying to figure out how to emerge from the convention without tearing the party apart.
  13. No, I think it's direct. If Bloomberg wasn't rich, he wouldn't have been able to employ his "wait until Super Tuesday" strategy. He would have had to compete in Iowa and New Hampshire against the 20 or so other Democratic candidates. The way those states are won is with significant grassroots support from Democratic activists. An ex-Republican mayor who endorsed George W. Bush's re-election campaign and spoke at the Republican convention would not get that support. Obviously we can't know for sure, but the overwhelming likelihood is that he would have dropped out of the race already.
  14. The reason he has any chance in this race is due to his wealth.
