  • The Lone Good News About the Upcoming Debate: Gabbard Will Be Back on Stage

    The upcoming twelve-candidate Democratic presidential primary debate is probably going to be another mess, but one highlight will be the return of Tulsi Gabbard to the stage — good news not just for Michael Brendan Dougherty, but for everyone who wants to see an actual debate. In a series of prime-time meetings that have included a lot of repetitive platitudes and all-too-convenient anecdotes about an American everyman that candidates met on the trail, one of the few genuine bits of drama comes from the question of who Gabbard will go after and why. The Hawaii congresswoman’s debate performances haven’t done...
  • Ted Cruz: 'Donald Trump has broken the Democratic Party'

    ABC host George Stephanopoulos mentioned Cruz's warning that Texas could be a potential background state in the 2020 presidential election and noted that five Republican House members from the state have come forward saying they would not seek reelection next year. Cruz claimed that the third Democratic presidential debate in Houston on Thursday was a "very bad night" for Democrats because the candidates did not mention the economy's relative strength through the third quarter of this year. "If you look at Thursday night, the entire night of the debate, not a single Democrat talked about jobs, not a single Democrat...

    Watching the Democratic presidential debate Thursday night left one clear impression: Donald Trump won. Please don’t shoot the messenger. My left index finger recoiled a bit as it reached for the “T” on the keyboard. But it’s true for this reason: Democrats are too earnest. They care too much. They’re too smart. They know too much. Whoever says, as California Sen. Kamala Harris did, “The American people are so much better than this” needs to get out more. This isn’t to recommend that primary candidates should be more like Trump, not that they could. But as a panel of candidates,...

    Full title: Newt Gingrich: Dem presidential candidates doing a great job showing voters why Trump should be reelectedRemember the exciting, unpredictable and entertaining 2015-16 Republican presidential debates? Who would candidate Donald Trump take down this week? How would he dominate media questioners yet again? Whether you were for Trump, appalled by him or just curious, each debate was worth watching. Trump was so different – and so cheerfully direct and aggressive – that people began to see the debates as a sort of reality TV (which is what they should be). Our country is better when more people want to...

    Joe Biden told the crowd at a fundraiser in Houston Friday that he did a good job at the Democratic debate the night before but that there was always room for improvement. “Last night I thought was a good night. I think I could have done better. I will do better, God willing,” he said to applause from the partisan group of supporters.

    And the winner is … Donald Trump. The Democrats’ third presidential debate was a long-winded, platitude-filled disaster where no single candidate could claim a clear victory. Instead, the seven men and three women took turns displaying why they are all probably unelectable. Start with Joe Biden’s incoherence. The nominal front-runner, the former vice president had a 40-year reputation for never shutting up. Now he can’t manage to finish a sentence without interrupting himself. Nearly all his efforts to make a point were swamped by a sudden change of direction mid-sentence, and then another change a few words later as a...

    The Thursday night campaign trail was a tale of two cities: Houston, where 10 Democratic presidential hopefuls battled in their third debate of the cycle — and Baltimore, where the man they're running to beat had the stage all to himself. At roughly the same time the Democratic faceoff began, President Donald Trump strode into a Republican gathering halfway across the country — unashamed to show up in a city he’d called “rat-infested” a few weeks ago — and launched into well-honed attacks on his would-be replacements. He trotted out the set of derogatory nicknames he's rolled out over months...

    HOUSTON — Front-running Joe Biden stood out the most in Thursday’s snoozer of a Democratic debate — but for all the wrong reasons as he rambled through responses laden with non-sequiturs about record-players and Danish philosopher Soren Kierkegaard. “Play the radio. Make sure the television — excuse me, make sure you have the record player on at night, the phone … make sure that kids hear words, a kid coming from a very poor school, a very poor background will hear four-million words fewer spoken by the time they get there,” babbled the former Vice President, 76, at one point....

    Former Vice President Joe Biden: Wayne Gretzky said you have to go where the puck is, not where it was. Biden’s politics are stuck in the Democratic Party’s past.And his responses frequently veered off-course. I was paying close attention and he lost me at least three times by jumping around. Arrow: Down Sen. Bernie Sanders: His answers often seemed like a reprise of his performances during the 2016 primary debates.I don’t see how he picked up any new voters tonight, and it’s hard to keep old ones with so much talent on the stage.

    Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg suggested during Thursday night's primry debate that those who back President Trump and his immigration policies are “supporting racism." During the debate, Jorge Ramos, the Univision anchor and a moderator of the ABC News-hosted debate in Houston, rattled off several immigration-related Trump administration controversies, including family separations at the border, a travel ban that blocked entrance to the U.S. from seven majority Muslim countries, and dust-ups over the president's own incendiary rhetoric. Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Ind., was asked if people who support Trump and his immigration policies are racist. “Anybody who supports...

    Former Texas Congressman and 2020 presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke said at ABC’s Democratic debate that President Donald Trump “inspired” the El Paso shooting last month. In his opening statement, O’Rourke railed against Trump by pointing to the “cost and the consequence of his presidency.” O’Rourke accused Trump of bringing racism and violence “out into the open” throughout America before turning to the massacre that left dozens dead and wounded in his hometown in early August. “Twenty two people were killed,” O’Rourke said. “Dozens more injured by a man carrying a weapon he should never have been able to buy in...

    President Trump’s reelection campaign will be flying a banner attacking socialism in Houston on Thursday, shortly before Democratic presidential candidates take the debate stage there. An official with the campaign told ABC News that the group plans to fly a banner that reads, "Socialism will kill Houston's economy,” from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. The third Democratic presidential debate is scheduled to begin an hour later. The campaign also plans to take out two full-page advertisements in local newspapers taking aim at Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), former Vice President Joe Biden and former Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Julián...

    While some may be anticipating sparks to fly between Democratic candidates onstage, the Trump campaign plans to literally fly its counter messaging in the air above Houston ahead of Thursday's debate. President Donald Trump's campaign intends to counter-program the Democratic primary debate hosted by ABC News and Univision with an ad blitz that includes two front-page newspaper ads and flying a massive banner in the air that blasts socialism just before candidates take the stage. "Socialism will kill Houston's economy!" the ad reads, along with a number to text, according to a rendering provided to ABC News by a Trump...

    We haven’t even made it to the Democratic debates in Houston this week but the candidates are already jockeying for position in the October debates to be held in Ohio. And for reasons that remain a total mystery to me, billionaire liberal activist Tom Steyer has somehow qualified for that round. (Steyer won’t be on the stage in Houston this week as he didn’t manage to score well enough in four approved polls.) So where is this support coming from? (Boston Globe) Tom Steyer, the billionaire and former hedge fund investor turned impeachment activist, became the 11th Democratic presidential...

    At the end of July, MSNBC’s biggest and dullest conspiracy theorist got some very bad news. After over a year of booming ratings, The Rachel Maddow Show’s viewership had crashed. It had been a long road for Maddow, the former blonde Catholic high school girl who had decided she wanted to be a media personality and ended up with an MSNBC show through the efforts of Keith Olbermann. And after Keith was gone, MSNBC had to settle for a slightly less effeminate version of Olbermann. Maddow had retained the key elements of Olbermann’s personality, the unhinged conspiracy theories, histrionic delivery,...

    This week, we were served some less-than-breaking news. Rep. Seth Moulton, D-Mass., dropped out of the race for the Democratic nomination. If you've never heard of him, that's OK. Few Democrats have. He served in the Marine Corps for four tours in Iraq, but other than that, he hasn't done much. What's interesting is why he's being forced to drop out of the race. By any sane standards, Moulton is a thoroughly liberal Democrat. On every issue, he's more left-wing than President Barack Obama was on the day he left office. Three years ago, Moulton would have been considered a...

    It’s official — Mayor Bill de Blasio will be on the sidelines for the third round of the Democratic presidential primary debates. ABC — which is hosting the Sept. 12 affair in Houston — made the announcement on Thursday afternoon. The network confirmed that 10 candidates — the smallest debate field yet of the 2020 campaign season — met the Democratic National Committee’s entry requirements for the next showdown. The presidential hopefuls include: Former Vice President Joe Biden, New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro, California Sen. Kamala...
