    Also, to his comment that we only have Warren's word that Sanders said it...

    I believe the relevant expression is, "I believe women."
    That expression refers to believing women about sexual assault.

    Unless you've heard something about Bernie that the rest of us haven't, it doesn't apply here.

    We both know that wasn't what I was implying.

    But, a Bernie supporter "tut-tutting" about the idea of believing a woman over Bernie?

    That wouldn't be answering to claims of sexism with some unnecessary sexism, now, would it?

    No I don't because the phrase refers to believing women about sexual assault and harassment.

    Don't use the wrong phrase if you want people to know what you mean.

    Believe her if you want.

    And what is "unnecessary sexism"? Sexism is inherently unnecessary.

    The existence of "unnecessary sexism" would mean the existence of necessary sexism, and sexism is never necessary.

    This is how it goes for Bernie supporters.

    If I criticize any of the other candidates, I will be called divisive and costing the election for the Democrats. If someone does the same for Bernie, that's 100% acceptable.

    In my mind, short of some massive turnaround in Biden's performances it's gonna be Buttigieg, Warren or Bernie.

    Edit: The latest polls seem to have swung drastically, so my earlier impression may be wrong.

And why don't Democrats hammer the administration on that failed promise, and why the U.S. taxpayer has to foot the bill for that white elephant?
    That's a voting issue imo. Democrats did as much as possible making sure that no funds were in the budgets for the useless wall. He has to resort to taking them from military projects now. They can talk about the schools for military families etc this money is coming from. But, even in the courts with the lawsuits for his end run around the budgetary process. People knew Mexico wasn't paying for it when he said it. They still voted for him. That isn't going to win more voters or energize them.

    It should make us take a harder look at military budgets though which we should anyway. You have them swearing up and down that we cant afford medicare for all or we cant afford college debt relief. But the Military has so much budgeted money they can afford to have billions diverted to this useless shit and not really feel it honestly.

    Buttigieg doesn't have support from black voters and you can't win the Democratic primary without them.

    Biden and Bernie are still the favorites IMO.

    WATCH: Putin and Assad caught on video laughing as they mock Trump during Damascus meeting

    Video has emerged of Russian president Vladimir Putin and Syrian president Bashar Al-Assad having a laugh at President Trump’s expense during Putin’s visit to Damascus last week.

    “If Trump arrives along this road [to Damascus], everything will become normal with him too,” Assad said, according to a translation of the conversation. Putin then quipped that Trump would jump at the offer and if not, he’ll convince him to visit the country’s capital. “It will be repaired… invite him. He will come.” Assad replied that he’s ready to invite Trump. Putin then smiles and says, “I will tell him.”

    I saw a report that has Butigeg up in NH. But 538 still has Biden ahead with Sanders close behind.

    I make no secret that I dislike Sanders but that I do like Warren. I also believe that there should be more honest discussion about their differences.

    I don't need bots to influence my opinion.
    This. I love anyone who uses that Kang quote from Star Trek.

    House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy is calling on Joe Biden to suspend his campaign while the Democratic senators running for president participate in the Senate impeachment trial. Calls it “the only rightful thing” for Biden to do.
    Twitter Link

    Now how on Earth does that make any sense?

    Like, what if the NY Yankees came out onto the field to play against the Pirates, only Aroldis Chapman, Luis Cessa, Luis Severino, and Masahiro Tanaka all came down with the Flu. Then Mets then walk off the field saying they can't play because they are short a few pitchers.

    Though this is worse becasue McCarthy isn't asking Yang, or Steyer, or Bloomberg, or Buttigeig, or the others to stop campiging either.

    Though if this has anything to do with the Republicans wanting to bring him in as a witness, I'm sure that Biden could still campaign and testify at the same time if he had to.
