Next "debate" why not just have a fist fight.    This is so silly.  Everyone talking over everyone else.   "You said this!"  "No I didn't!"  oof.

DNC is having trouble putting forth a candidate who can beat a guy who eats boogers.   Is this real life?

Brian Williams pressing Biden on his son. No one else brought it up tonight during the debate.

His son has a job. He has that job more than once. George W Bush made put him on the Board of Directors for Amtrack long before.

If you ask any given political scientist or election expert about which candidates are and aren’t electable, they’ll give you the same answer: we don’t know. I think it’s foolish to speak so confidently about something we know so little about.

Telemundo reporter.

Bernie has no upper teeth as far as I could tell, he constantly thrusts his underbite to show his defiance of oligarchs.  He hates him some oligarchs.

Bloomberg, just comically bad.  Loved when he forgot he was now a democrat and blamed democrats, like Sanders, for passing some bills.  

Warren, did fine but she grabbed only low hanging fruit.  Low hanging fruit is what we call the 78 year old apricots on Bloomberg.

Biden, the bad face lift will not lift him in the polls.

Klobuchar, you are no Mayor Pete.

Mayor Pete, slow, steady, Presidential.

In fairness, Tim has read multiple David Brooks pieces.

Honestly, with Tim's record, this declaration probably guarantees a Reagan in 84 like romp for Sanders.

She's the most likely to be out before Super Tuesday.  If I'm Bloomberg I may pull a Ross Perot here and just quit before I really start.

Not to mention Bloomberg went right for the jugular with Bernie and called him a communist. I think he did great damage to Bernie tonight.

This didn't matter one bit,  Bernie already has his people in his corner and not one of them was bothered by it.  If anything it hurt Bloomberg more than Sanders

@MMFlint

Did Elizabeth Warren just end Bloomberg’s campaign? How many NDAs did Bloomberg force women to sign. She kept asking. He wouldn’t answer. Put a fork in him.

If Bloomberg's NDAs are just about some off color jokes, seems a no brainer to release the NDAs on his end

Regardless of what the NDAs are about, he shouldn’t have said it was just about some jokes they didn’t like. 10 years ago that might have been “ok”, but not now.

Hearten up. While moderates trail Sanders by at least 18 points in California, Bloomberg is running ahead in the South with its Super Tuesday states.

Trump is going to get re-elected.  We may get some entertainment in the meantime though.

Mayor Pete may be the best hope of everyone on that stage but being gay is going to be major baggage in the general.

Sanders is going to get the nom anyway and his ticket is a loser vs Trump

Bingo I don’t disagree with a single word of this.

The key is if they want to stop Bernie they better get multiple candidates above 15% in California.  That poll is quite dangerous for them given the size of the delegate pool.

Yeah. I haven't paid too much attention to the horse race aspect of the primary, but 15% seems to be the threshold.

It was a huge relief when Warren slaughtered Bloomberg on the NDA stuff.  I knew they'd go after him somewhat but she brought the whole Dexter murder kit tonight.  That needed to happen.  Thanks Warren!    

Sanders stayed on message and held up pretty well despite some underhanded attacks.  Pete deployed the 'bernie bro' line, the 'support an actual Democrat' line, the 'status quo or revolution' line.  He's clearly punching left- you can say it's about trying to "win" but it's a remarkably different posture than the stuff he was originally campaigning on.  It's like he's an entirely different person now.  Progressives were right to request a refund.  I may have to go back and count but I'm pretty sure that at least 2/3 of the time he said "that's not true" it actually was.  

I actually cringed when Sanders started talking about Russian bots dividing the Democratic Party.  Just a really sad line to take, I hope that's just his boomer self talking and not advising by his campaign.  He usually displays exceptional judgment when pivoting back to his bread & butter campaign issues that was just so disappointing to watch.  

I really don't get the Klobuchar love at all.  At least not for the sensible midwesterner routine.  I want to see the real one come out, you know she was ready to throw a chair at Buttigieg.  

Most of the others were just throwing up hail marys and going for broke.  It almost seems too good to be true for Sanders.  The party can't win without his supporters, and I don't think they'll have the numbers to deny him at the convention without shattering the party itself.  The party is in complete desperation mode, and it doesn't look like there's anything they can do about it.

Was wild when the whole field (except for Sanders) said they'd let "the process" decide- the rigged superdelegate system- over the nomination going to the candidate with the most popular support.  Fun debate, far and away the best one yet.

Didn't watch the debate, but did Bloomberg actually call Sanders a Communist?

Update:  Ok, just watched a video.  That was a fantastic shot at Bernie.  Bloomberg is right.  Sanders is trying to cover it up by calling it the made up term "Democratic Socialism".  He may call it that now to fool the rubes, but if he gets in you watch how Sanders changes his spots.  Sanders and those like him (AOC, Talib, etc...) are a danger to Capitalism and everything America stands for.

Bloomberg just went up a notch in my book on that alone.  Glad someone finally had the balls to call it out to Sander's face.  The real Democrats need to be more vocal on this against Sanders and not be afraid to call a spade a spade.

After reading the rounds this morning I fully admit I am in the minority with this hot take but I think Bloomberg won last night.  If you look past his initial nervousness his answers were more rational and more thought out then the others.  He should have been better prepared for the NDA question but there isnt much he can do about that.  Its out of his hands.

 

Good God I hate warren and Amy K with a passion.  Both are horrible.  I thought Mayor Pete destroyed amy at every turn.
