Bloomberg Faces Searing Attacks At Free-For-All Democratic Debate ^ | Feb. 20, 2020

Posted on 02/19/2020 6:40:12 PM PST by Helicondelta

The Democratic presidential debate Wednesday night kicked off with fireworks, as every person on stage not named Mike Bloomberg attacking the former New York City mayor, who was participating in his first presidential face off.

The first hit at the NBC/MSNBC two-hour debate here came from frontrunner Bernie Sanders, who ripped Bloomberg for his record as mayor.

Next to swing at Bloomberg was Elizabeth Warren, who took aim at the mayor's past critical statements about women.

"I'd like to talk about who we're running against. A billionaire who calls women 'fat broads' and 'horse-faced lesbians,' and, no, I'm not talking about Donald Trump,” Warren said. "I'm talking about Mayor Bloomberg."

Amy Klobuchar took her shot next.

"I've been told many times to wait my turn and to step aside," she said. "And I'm not going to do that now, and I'm not going to do that because a campaign memo from Mayor Bloomberg said, this morning, that the only way we get a nominee is if we step aside for him," she said.

Moments later, Pete Buttigieg offered his criticism for Bloomberg

"Let's put someone forward who is actually a Democrat," Buttigieg said.

 Mayor Pete said that there is no room for such a woman in the democratic party.
Apparently there's no room for ANY type of woman in Buttiplugs life. Well, maybe some "frozen vegetables" but not real women. Just sayin

Well, there are a few Congressional seats and State Senate seats upstate that it would be nice to win back.

If the rats keep the State Senate they’ll control NY redistricting, very bad.

However, Bloomberg has already spent twice as much and is not through

Primary candidates can stay in if they don't have the most votes. But what usually impels them to drop out is running out of money, and Mike still has plenty.

I don’t think he will pull it off, but Bernie is the ONLY one of these clowns that has a chance against Trump.

I disagree, and in fact I think Bernie vs. Trump would be more favorable for the President than race-baiting Warren or Buttigieg who would be more calculating.

Buttigieg actually could be the toughest since he is less likely to make major political mistakes (i.e. Indian heritage), or come off as a angry school teach, and can emphasize his military and brief political experience, though he should get zero Christian votes, and needs to be publicly taken to the woodshed over his brazen attempts to invoke the Bible as supporting him. And the liberal media would love him, and his support of The Act, a step toward the final solution.

It is very difficult to defeat an incumbent president. In fact, it almost never happens. Two things are necessary to bring about the defeat of an incumbent: negative energy against the incumbent and positive energy for the challenger. One needs to look no farther back than 1980 to see this in action.

Let’s look at 2004. Plenty of negative energy against Bush, but Kerry had no positive energy. Fail.

2012: Obama had a ton of negative energy and his postive energy had waned substantially. But unfortunately, a wet dish rag could have generated more positive energy than the ‘severe conservative’ Mitt Romneyl.

In this election, Trump has probably more positive energy than he had in his first election, which will likely get him re-elected. There is, however, a massive amount of negative energy going his way.

The BEST shot they have to win (it’s still a long shot) is a candidate who generates positive energy. Bernie does that. He has a fervent and devoted base who are energized. This is undeniable.

Could P.P. Buttigieg gin up some phony positive energy? Maybe. But it’s nothing like Obama did and it’s not going to be anything like what Bernie has. Lieawatha? She couldn’t energize anything if you handed her live wires and a bucket of water.

The one that got me was when Warren started talking about a candidate who said bad things about women, and then said, and no it’s not Trump.

Producer Perez can work this into the next debacle.

They need a bigger box:

Candidates standing on boxes is not an uncommon practice. In many debates involving candidates with large differences in height, shorter candidates are supplied boxes to stand on to make the candidates appear closer to the same height.

Julian Castro is standing on a box in an attempt to make him look taller on the #DemocraticDebate stage
