wasn't Conrad in jail.

maybe he missed that so many of us have been pleading with Trump to do just this with zero success:

2020 Presidential, Democratic Debate in Houston - full transcript
« Reply #251 on: September 13, 2019, 06:21:21 AM »
I missed the beginning (could not find it on radio) and the end, but saw most of it.  It was painful to watch.  Each one of them said things that would be easy for any Republican to rebut.

Biden gave the right amount of mis-speaks, gaffes, idiocy for his opponents to seize on.  Kids need to hear more words, turn on the television uh record player at night.

Bernie was a raving angry man who looked like a lunatic.  Too bad to distract from the opportunity to point out everything he advocates takes us in the direction of certain failure.  A very important question was asked of Bernie about the similarity of his policies to those that failed so horribly in Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela.  He rambled on about free health care and family leave in Canada and "Scandinavia".  He did not answer the question.  His policies if fully implemented will unravel capitalism in just the same way that they brought down Venezuela and coercion by military state and coercion by administrative state are indistinguishable if the coercion has the full effect.  He is going to pay every teacher at least $60,000 without regarding to regional cost of living differences while making the nation as a whole poorer and all of them will make government schools mandatory almost back to birth.

Warren:  I would say zero charisma but smooth delivery and hit all of her well-rehearsed points.  You either like her or you don't.  I don't see her exciting anyone other than the 15-20% of Democrats who already like her and relate to all that.  Every voter needs to figure out whether what she proposes is good for America, whether there is logic to go from our hate for large companies to the full government takeover of the entire American private sector.  Translating her climate change words, she is saying we need to stop heating and air conditioning our homes and buildings by 2028 or whatever all that government imposed fascism mumbo-jumbo was supposed to mean.

Booker is articulate but also angry and unappealing.  Castro looks goofy in his presentation.  Beto will take your guns.  Butti is way more charismatic on radio than on television, and all Trump supporters yes are racist. 

Klobuchar looked nervous but seems nice, competent, authentic, unless you know what a complete bitch she is off-camera.  One Dem summary said Klobuchar could stay in the race, but why? 

They all seem so angry, I really tried to find one with a good presentation, someone who you wish you could hear more form at the end of the 45 seconds.  Andrew Yang maybe but some of his ideas are nuts.  He made a nice point about immigration but could not in a Democrat setting make the distinction between legal and illegal; no mention of rule of law in immigration.  Did his father who grew up without a floor in Asia hire border gangs to enter?  If not, what is the similarity to what we face today?  Instead he literally invited the whole world to come here and start businesses and make a great life for themselves.  8 billion people?  What kind of a country will it be if they all say yes?  Probably identical to where they came from but a little more crowded.

Harris was the other rare contestant who was not all angry, but also was not all present. If not drunk, her drug dosage was a bit off.  More pleasant than the angry ones, but aloof and a little incoherent.  Whiny sounding, she had a weird moment where she couldn't stop laughing at her own scripted joke.  She will not be the nominee.
 
On China tariffs, not one could say they oppose Trump tariffs or that they would repeal them on day one, just that they would do [the same thing] better (but they of course wouldn't).  Isn't that funny, a 10 way endorsement of a very bold Trump policy that no one before him dared to undertake.  They were actually helping Trump explain to the hurt sectors of our economy why we need to keep up the fight and win it.  Bad news for China.  It sets Trump up to get a deal with them sooner. 

Not one question asked about America's roaring economy leading the world in growth, our hugely increased wage growth under Trump, record unemployment for blacks, Hispanics, Asians and women, and DECREASED income inequality.  This is not relevant?  Won't come up in a general election??  Now back to social justice, gender flexibility and white supremacy opinions.

I could not visualize any of the 10 of them rising up to even win the nomination much less win the election.  The two people who struggled the most to watch this painful ordeal were Barack and Michelle Obama.  Do they REALLY want to give up this great life you have get back in the ugly arena?

And the winner is ... ... ... incumbent President Donald Trump.

" .Klobuchar looked nervous but seems nice, competent, authentic, unless you know what a complete bitch she is off-camera.  One Dem summary said Klobuchar could stay in the race, but why? "

Last night on her post debate quicky speaking tour she claims she wants to be President for "all the people"

Except for my home town mayor , a Democrat , who supported Ronald Reagan , which inspired RR to come and give a speech there , ( I saw it)
I have never heard of a single Democrat who EVER represented me .

I guess Barak Obama represented all the people too........    :wink:

Encapsulating moment of last night's Dem debate for me:

Joe Biden, calling for government workers to come into people's homes to teach them how to raise their children by turning on the record player while struggling with loose dentures.

Also noteworthy: His call for no one to be in prison for non-violent crimes. Free Paul Manafort?

"Last night on her post debate quicky speaking tour she claims she wants to be President for "all the people" "

Don't be fooled by her mild public manner and Leftists calling her moderate, she has been in office since Jan 2007, when Pelosi-Reid took power and brought down the Bush expansion of 51 consecutive months.  She is to the left of Al Franken and never has represented all the people.  She has NEVER been mentioned as a crossover vote on ANY contentious issue.  She was a cheap copy of Hillary Clinton when she first ran, was a rubber stamp on every vote for Reid-Schumer and now sees herself as some voice of mid-life reason and experience. 

In the link below she sides with the lying accuser against Judge Kavanaugh citing some "rule of evidence" where absolutely no evidence exists and we later find out it all was false, designed by her lawyers to preserve abortion.  Great integrity.  She ran 100% with the wacko, ends justify means, party line on everything she came across.  Good luck getting her appointees confirmed if Republicans return the favor.  Thankfully she will never be President, but if she is elected she will be no worse than Presidents Mondale, Dukakis, Kerry or McGovern.

Yes, he lost me with calling for the government to come into our homes to tell us how to raise children when he already said he wants them taken away in pre-K to public schools, not private day care.  No mention of stay at home parents raising children.  Why would you raise your own when the indoctrination union needs to get at them sooner.  Put them all in little boxes, send them to the universities until they all come out just the same:

I suppose we need a National Ambulance Administration to head regulations in order we have more ambulances now.
May the ambulance drivers could all be made government employees and unionized to insure they all vote for crats.
