Loved hearing Bernie call out Biden to his face on the Iraq war, those infamous trade deals, and the crippling bankruptcies laws.

"Yeah Joe, you did get a lot done"

Smack! That ones gonna leave a mark.

@Dr. John Carpenter @Dr. John Carpenter Bootagig's second round of MSM fawning coverage. His corporate media backers are of course in it for the corp-friendly moderate ideology. His well-heeled individual backers might be in it more for the IdPol.

@wokkamile Early on, te media couldn’t decide who they liked more, O’Rourke or him. I feel they pushed them both for a while. I don’t know why they feel Mayo Pete is going to have more of an impact now, but I suppose we shall see.

All the reviews of the debate say Tulsi lost and lost bad

I thought for sure the establishment, and their media henchmen, would see the truth in what Gabbard was saying about wars for profit. So I guess if they say Gabbard lost, they will make sure she does. Which is, after all, the more salient point of their message.

@gjohnsit Exposes the South Bend housebreaker for the WarHawk neocon he is.

Tulsi talks of soldiers' lives whilst Pete talks about honor.l The honor of war. The honor of killing. The honor of destroying families. Yeah, Pete--sign me up for some of this honor.

Hawaii congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard again topped the rankings of the most Googled candidate during the Ohio Democratic presidential debate Tuesday night. Gabbard, who had threatened to boycott the debate calling the process “rigged,” slammed the sponsors of the debate, CNN and the New York Times, calling both organizations’ attacks on her “despicable.”

Gabbard said, “The New York Times and CNN have also smeared veterans like myself for calling for an end to this regime change war” - referring to her position on Syria. Gabbard’s debate performance won her the Drudge Report's non-scientific, snap poll, with an overwhelming %40 percent saying she won the debate.

#1--she believes in and is part of a branch of Hinduism that is defined as Fundamentalist. She is a supporter of Indian leader Modi and his nationalistic Hindu party. Modi's cabals are going after non-believers especially Muslims, killing them.
#2--She is not experienced enough. The swamp/shark pit would regard her as a cocktail.

But have yet to see any credible evidence, much less a verbal unpacking of what "supporting" actually entails.

She is a supporter of Indian leader Modi and his nationalistic Hindu party.

@orlbucfan

Two reasons I won't support her:

#1--she believes in and is part of a branch of Hinduism that is defined as Fundamentalist.

By whom?

I am very reticent indeed to discriminate against someone for her religion, having experienced religious discrimination myself.

So who is it that is calling Tulsi Gabbard's branch of Hinduism Fundamentalist? And upon what evidence?

She is a supporter of Indian leader Modi and his nationalistic Hindu party. Modi's cabals are going after non-believers especially Muslims, killing them.

Is she an unqualified Modi backer? Direct evidence?

#2--She is not experienced enough. The swamp/shark pit would regard her as a cocktail.

And what I've seen thus far indicates that she'd give back better than she got. Please mind: I'm a Bernie man; but I'd be happy with Sanders/Gabbard.

@thanatokephaloides go look it up. You can start with articles linked from Naked Capitalism. Does that help?

other than "why are you an apologist for a dictator?"

From the transcript:

I want to turn now to foreign policy. President Trump ordered the withdrawal of all American forces from northern Syria, abandoning America's long-time Kurdish allies. As a result, Turkey has now evaded Syria, ISIS detainees have escaped, and the Kurds have announced a new deal with the government in Damascus, a victory for Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, and Russia, and Iran.

Asked of Biden first, then Gabbard. I think she got asked 3 questions on the night.

I'm sort of neutral about her. At least I don't hate her like I do "Mayor Pete".

IT'S ON!! Hillary accuses Tulsi Gabbard of being a Russian "asset" - We knew it would come to this eventually, Hillard still owns the DNC and she is defending her "property". She also expressed fears that Tulsi would mount a third party candidacy and is scared to death of that possibility! Hardly wait for the Clinton / Gabbard steel cage match - it ought to be good!!
