Amy Klobuchar says her rude treatment of her staff is a testament of her toughness, something she will need to deal with Vladimir Putin.

Vlad Mamu, take notice!

Quote:
Klobuchar cast the reports of staff mistreatment as a positive for her ability to operative on the international stage as president, namely when dealing with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

"If you are a boss, you have to have high standards, and that is what I have always had. And that doesn't mean it's a popularity contest all the time," she said. "And so I've had high standards for myself, high standards for our staff, and mostly I'm going to have high standards for the country."

She added: "One can always do better, and that means you want to be sure that you are listening to people if they felt that something was unfair, or they felt bad about something. But I still think that you have to demand good product. When you're out there on the world stage and dealing with people like Vladimir Putin, yeah, you want someone who's tough. You want someone that demands the answers and that's going to get things done, and that's what I've done my whole life."

Martin: "The ideas that you championed during that [2016] campaign, which were then considered fringe are now not fringe. ... So if we take the Democratic presidential field, you've got candidates now who who sound like Bernie Sanders. So why do you need to run?"

Sanders: "Well maybe the more appropriate question is, 'Why do they need to run?' [laughter]

"Look, I've been doing this for a long time, and I'm very proud of the 2016 campaign, in the sense not only that the ideas that we fought for, which were, as you indicated, considered radical and extreme, but are now accepted.

"But the other part of the equation is that we reached out to the American people, and we said, look: it's not just the progressive agenda that we have to fight for. You need to be involved in the political process. If you want to transform this country, you can't do it unless millions of people begin to stand up and fight back, because change never occurs from the top on down. It's always from the bottom on up."
Great retort there by Bernie, when asked about the point of him running again, since his ideas are no longer fringe. BTW, Hillary was never asked why she was running again in 2016.

A babbling fool like Beto raised 6.1 million in first 24 hours, surpassing Bernie's first 24 hours collection.

https://www.politico.com/story/2019/...ollars-1224704

Something is fishy. No way he has raised this sum from grass root donation. He did not disclose the number of donors as well as average donation.

Even MSNBC reported that Obama is solidly behind this guy, throwing his VP once again under the bus. 2016 was not enough humiliation for Wall street bootlicker Obama, hopefully Bernie finally banishes him to dustbin in 2020, along with his real legacy Donald J. Trump.

Beto is running a fundamentally dishonest campaign. This is very obvious.

I predict his end will be like JebPleaseClapBush. But I do not know. If America chooses another Obama, I will probably conclude that US politics is hopeless.

America will obviously choose the anti - establishment guy. Trump 2.0 or Bernz Bro.

Unless there is a curveball-deeznuts. There is no good candidate.

^ That was a great dig at Skate O Dork. (recall Beto was live streaming his tooth job in recent past in his effort to relate to people)

CROOKED Kamala Devi Harris refused to prosecute a big pharma company, despite her office recommending for prosecution.

https://www.pastemagazine.com/articl...-kamala-h.html

No surprise here. Crooked Devi also did not prosecute Steve Mnuchin, who illegally foreclosed millions of people to make money through his fraudulent bank.

Crooked Co(p)mala was only good in prosecuting black mamas and papas who failed to send their kids to school due to poverty. Because unlike Mnuchin's bank and Herbalife, who donated handsomely to CROOKED Kamala's campaign, poor black community could not chime in.

And now she is projecting herself as a born again progressive and champion of civil rights. She is a DEMON and a SOCIOPATH in the guise of Devi.

I feel this election will be nastier than 2016.

Trumpian language will reign supreme

I don't know about you guys, but I will really miss Jeb Bush in this US election. Him getting roasted by Trump left and right was one of the funniest thing ever.

True. Called him out after he repeated a statement several times. Rubio was coached to say that.

BTW, the following was my favorite cartoon before Florida primary. On the campaign trail he was spewing usual BS like it how it felt great to be home, although he knew he was sure to lose to Trump.

Notice the orange hair

Oh, you are serious after all.(second time you bring it up). I thought you were just trolling me. I'll answer then, as it's a very serious matter.

Loon is more a commie than a dem socialist. Firstly, adding the word dem in front of anything is just an obfuscation tactic. You can be a democratic mass murderer too by that reasoning, just have to convince the majority of your mass murdering ideology first.
So the difference is really between socialism and communism. And Loon is a long time admirer of communist nations like Russia. He is more commie and than a socialist. Socialists can be pro market or anti market. Loon is just straight up anti-corporate!

See this. All trolling and counter trolling aside Aklemalp, please do not be fooled by this evil trash. He just might make a gulag to round up all business owners in USA. And Guyana shares a border with Venezuela. I just wonder what kind of evil machinations he might do in South America using USA's forces.

Bruh, I was joking both times. Once someone puts themselves up for election, it's fair game on them.

I was just trying to decipher and make sense about the commie bit.

Elizabeth Warren was given a town hall by CNN recently. Mainstream media is saying she has nailed it, but I think her performance was below average, because:

1. She has a way of talking that is boring. In Bangla her talking style can be described as চিবিয়ে চিবিয়ে কথা বলা . Her talking style turns her interviews and town halls to snoozefest (we live in an age of social media and screen addiction and our continuous attention span is very low).

2. Even though she is known as a policy wonk, for many straight forward questions, instead of giving straight forward policy solution, she tap danced and gave answers filled with "I believe" and "democratic values". Remember, 'value' is the code word used either to dodge an answer or to camouflage neo liberal centrist policies. For example, she was asked what she would specifically do to stop the influx of immigrants, and she went to describe her own visit to the southern border and the heart wrenching situation she witnessed of immigrants in jail.

3. She did not unequivocally support Medicare for all. You simply cannot say you believe healthcare is a right but immediately resort to corporate and republican talking point of affordability and access, because what is affordable and accessible for you may not be affordable and accessible for another.

4. She completely fumbled when asked about her native American heritage.

5. While describing her personal story she teared up. I am not a fan of personal story sharing and getting emotional, especially in this age of T20 politics. You need to see the ball, hit the ball. Simply give to the point, concise policy based answers like a surgical strike, and move on. Every human being, good or bad, has emotional personal stories, and they mean nothing if you backstab me with your policy and actions when you are in power.

6. She clearly wanted to pivot herself as both a centrist and a progressive. This is an exercise as futile as asking to draw a cirle with four arms.

7. She overall seemed too enthusiastic and too quick while answering questions. This is a mistake I used to make in interviews. Whenever you are asked a question, don't jump into answering it right away. Pause for 1 or 2 seconds to process the question and to gather your thoughts.

A random comment perfectly explains the communication style of Pocahontas:

Quote:
Policies aside, whenever I hear Warren speak, the image that always comes to my mind is of a schoolmarm, sterile, prim and correct, always lecturing down to the audience. Not quite the obnoxiousness, ingratiatingness, smugness or unctuousness that made Hillary Clinton such a repulsive candidate, but her vector points in roughly the same direction with a tendency more to the shrill, defensive, and looking down the nose feel. There is absolutely zero chance that she will inspire a majority of the population to trust her, believe in her, or vote for her. Hard left Democrats will vote for her but real people will not.

Fox News hires former DNC chair Donna Brazile who left CNN after tipping off Clinton about 2016 debate questions


Fox said on Monday that it has hired Donna Brazile, the former interim Democratic National Committee chair and a long-time CNN commentator before she became embroiled in controversy in 2016.
CNN forced Ms Brazile to resign as an on-air contributor in October 2016 after emails revealed that she had tipped off Ms Clinton's aides about questions likely to be asked by CNN moderators during the debates and town hall meetings carried by CNN.
At the time, Ms Brazile was highly supportive of Ms Clinton's candidacy. The network said the leaking of the question was a break of its ethics and undermined the impartiality of its campaign coverage.
Fox said Ms Brazile would comment on the upcoming presidential campaign on Fox News and Fox Business Network.

Andrew Yang, Upstart Democratic Presidential Candidate, Comes Out Against Circumcision


Yang said he had initially planned to have his sons circumcised, fearing they’d be “self-conscious” if they still had their foreskins. But his wife convinced him otherwise.



....



If elected, Yang said he wants to “inform parents that it is entirely up to them whether their infant gets circumcised, and that there are costs and benefits either way.”
