Thank God. Delaney is the worst sort of politician for today’s America.

An Ex-Corporate CEO that sounds like Trump.

Over at Fivethirtyeight, Nate and the gang were arguing over which will have a bigger impact on Delaney’s poll numbers: The negative impact of Warren’s smackdown, or the positive impact of people knowing he exists at all.

Elizabeth Warren: "I don’t understand why anybody goes to all the trouble of running for president of the United States just to talk about what we really can’t do and shouldn’t fight for

Remember Hillary: "No We Can’t
Her did exactly that - and Lost

Well, maybe we can scratch a few of these right wing idiots by Thursday

That’s the Democratic party as a whole, and it’s a little strange that the quote from Warren references nobody Delaney and not the DNC’s beloved who also stands for nothing–he only stands in the way.

There’s a lot of candidates running for the dem nomination, but maybe only 4 of them are running for something specific, not just they want the highest office, or they want to prevent a possible progressive from winning.

O’Rourke is just about toast, too. Buh bye.

Warren really hit it (again) so damned RIGHT on target. All of the whimpy BS from Dems about how this or that “won’t work” or “isn’t feasible” makes me sick. Doesn’t anybody get it that as long as you stick to what is EXPEDIENT or feasible, you make zero progress? Doesn’t anybody see we have made ZERO PROGRESS and in fact that it has all just gotten WORSE? Trump is in the White House, for god’s sake! Wake the F up! Make radical change! We don’t just have a Climate Crisis, we have an Economic Crisis, and “more growth” and “more billionaires” isn’t the bloody answer.

Delaney is obviously a Republican Plant who registered as a Democrat in order to smear Progressive ideas.

What the hell was that Right Wing Corporate Stooge doing on the stage of a Democratic Debate?

It would have been a Great Debate if the candidates were given more time to respond.

But it was a fair fight, 2 Brilliant Progressives vs 8 Lackluster Dim Witted Republican Lite Democrats representing the Status Quo.

he’s an insufferable little nothing. good riddance.

The neoliberal traffic jam needs thinning anyway. The DNC will have enough royalty to take the convention to the superdelegates just with what they have.

The under-appreciated voice CNN tried to stifle - and failed miserably! Her several strongly voiced and well-articulated lines spoke volumes and walked rings around the “centrist” frauds on stage!

.I hope she gains enough support to stick around! That being - “must have registered at least 1% in three polls recognized by the (corrupt) DNC. Or must have 65,000 donors, with at least 200 donors in 20 states”.- (likely will be manipulated by TPTB!)

In her own words:
This is part of the dark underbelly of American society. The racism, the bigotry, and the entire conversation that we’re having here tonight — if you think any of this wonkiness is going to deal with this dark psychic force of the collectivized hatred that this president is bringing up in this country, then I’m afraid that the Democrats are going to see some very dark days."

"I’ve heard some people here tonight, I almost wonder why you’re Democrats. You seem to think there’s something wrong with using the instruments of government to help people. That is what government should do. It should — all policies should help people thrive. That is how we will have peace." Marianne Williamson

Ms Williamson is very right!
"Government is instituted for the common good; for the protection, safety, prosperity, and happiness of the people; and not for profit, honor, or private interest of any one man, family, or class of men" - John Adams, 1776

Too bad Warren didn’t have the guts to endorse the change candidate in 2016.

Because “Trump is in the White House” partially thanks to her cowardice.

Here’s a little humor, someone vandalized Delaney’s Wikipedia page last night, according to USA Today. It was edited to show he died on 7/30/2020, killed by Warren at the debates. LMAO, Delaney, you corporate hack you’ve been punked!

John Delaney represents the Democrats that have lost hope. John Delaney represents Democrats that do not dare to dream anymore. John Delaney represents the fear generated by a benevolent country being trumped by voters who have given up on a creative America. The exchange dares us to activate our sense of what is heartfelt, needed.

Warren did not have the guts to support Bernie in 2016 because she was looking out for her own future campaign. nothing but just another politician because if she really gave a damn about us, she would have come out for Bernie. I wrote to her after the campaign and told her so and told her I would never give her another penny for any campaign. GO BERNIE! the only candidate who has never wavered in his efforts to make real change for real people US! just look at this record.

Just asking: Why do people like Ms. Williamson that speak the truth, never have a chance?

Where does America get people like Delaney? They are mainly self-serving, egotists - probably sociopaths - who seem to do very well in american business and government. Why is a guy like this in the Democratic party? Well anyway, Warren made chop suey of this creep. Hopefully that will be the last time we will see his face on tv unless Trump appoints him to some position in his cabinet.

Why are they not mixing them up. Warren with Biden, Sanders with Harris, etc, etc. Is this some kind of set up to choose the finalists?
