  • Newt Gingrich: After Iowa Democratic debate, party could get its nightmare: Trump’s reelection

    It took a while for me to understand the nagging feeling I got from the Democratic debate in Iowa Tuesday night. I kept grappling with my dissatisfaction and could not find the right words. Then I saw a USA Today article that captured my response perfectly – and my feeling was reinforced, because it was articulated by a friend with whom I have worked on criminal justice reform, Van Jones. Before noting that he wanted a Democrat in the White House, Jones told USA Today: “Democrats have to do better than what we saw tonight. There was nothing I saw...

    CNN debate moderator Abby Phillip asked Bernie Sanders in the Tuesday debate in Des Moines: “CNN reported yesterday — and Senator Sanders, Senator Warren confirmed in a statement — that, in 2018, you told her you did not believe that a woman could win the election. Why did you say that?” Not “did you say that,” but “why did you say that?” Sanders denied it, then listed the many reasons the story makes no sense: He urged Warren herself to run in 2016, campaigned for a female candidate who won the popular vote by 3 million votes, and has been...

    Democrats’ 2020 front-runner ended the primary debate season much the way he began it: Stumbling and mumbling. In his final performance before the Iowa caucuses, Biden once again struggled stringing together coherent sentences. During one of his first answers, Biden attempted explaining his foreign policy toward the Middle East: "It's a mistake to pull out the straw, small number of troops … It's lie that our embassies were going to be bombed."

    Sanders, of Vermont, began to extend his right hand out towards Warren, but the Massachusetts lawmaker kept her clasped hands raised close to her torso as the two exchanged words. The audio from CNN’s coverage had already been cut, but the seemingly tense moment followed a public rehashing in the debate of Sanders’ allegedly telling Warren that a woman couldn’t win the general election. Sanders reportedly made the comment during a closed-door meeting between the two lawmakers in 2018, but he maintained during Tuesday night’s debate that it was “incomprehensible” he’d say such a thing. Warren insisted that Sanders did...

    It was not 11 minutes before a 2020 Democratic primary candidate told the first big lie of the seventh debate Tuesday evening at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa.The lie came courtesy of former Vice President Joe Biden, who claimed Iran adhered strictly to its 2015 nuclear agreement with the United States before President Trump came along and ruined everything. Iran most certainly violated the terms of the deal prior to Trump leaving it.Biden’s lie came in response to a question that was asked initially of Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont.CNN’s Wolf Blitzer said, “In the wake of the Iran...

    President Trump on Monday hammered the Commission on Presidential Debates, raising questions about his participation in debates next year with the eventual Democratic presidential nominee. The president, in a trio of tweets, said he looked forward to debating "whoever the lucky person is who stumbles across the finish line" in the Democratic primary. But he chastised the nonprofit commission responsible for organizing the presidential debates and suggested he might avoid them. That group has scheduled three general election debates next year. "As President, the debates are up to me, and there are many options, including doing them directly & avoiding...

    All of the Democratic presidential candidates who have qualified for next week’s debate say they will skip the event rather than cross a planned picket line at the venue. The seven candidates -- Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Amy Klobuchar, Tom Steyer and Andrew Yang -- all said Friday that they would not show up for the debate at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles next Thursday if the Unite Here Local 11 goes forward with its protest of food service contractor Sodexo SA. The union, which represents about 150 Sodexo employees at the LMU campus, reached...

    All of the presidential candidates who qualified for next week’s Democratic debate are threatening to skip the event in response to a labor dispute taking place at the debate venue, Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.), Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), businessman Andrew Yang, former vice president Joe Biden, billionaire activist Tom Steyer, Sen.

    The Hill ^ | 12 12 2019 | Marty Johnson
    President Trump has been discussing with his campaign advisers whether or not to participate in the general election debates in 2020, two people close to the situation told The New York Times. According to the sources, Trump doesn't trust the Commission on Presidential Debates, the nonprofit organization that puts on the debates. Specifically, Trump is apprehensive of who will be chosen by the organization to moderate the debates, the Times reports. Trump's campaign reportedly declined to comment on what their plan was for the debates at a state-of-the-race campaign briefing in Arlington, Va. During the 2016 campaign, the president persistently...

    "We're spiraling towards a debate stage that potentially- we're still fighting to get on it, but could have six people with no diversity whatsoever," Booker said during an interview on MSNBC. "The way this is shaping up, especially with the rules of the DNC, it is preferencing millionaires and billionaires and a lot of other things that don't ever translate into viability in Iowa." Liberal activists decried the potential "catastrophic" all-white debate stage amid the fallout of Harris' withdrawal, some calling it "sickening" and blaming the "implicit racism and sexism of 'electability.'" At this point, we have 7 Democrats qualified...

  • Hunter Biden’s ‘Corrupt’ Actions Will ‘Dominate’ Debates if Joe Biden Wins Nomination: Trump

    Hunter Biden’s “corrupt” actions will be zeroed in on by President Donald Trump during general election debates if former Vice President Joe Biden wins the Democratic nomination, Trump said during a newly released radio interview.   Asked what’s holding up negotiations with China, Trump said China has been much tougher negotiating with him than the country’s dealings with Hunter Biden. “I call him ‘where’s Hunter’ because he disappears. He just takes all the money that he rips off and he disappears,” Trump said, referring to the millions of dollars Biden made in Ukraine and China.“Do you ever notice, one of the most incredible...
  • Let’s Be Clear, (Democratic Presidential) Candidates Use a Lot of Filler Phrases

    Wall Street Journal ^ | November 20, 2019 | Lindsay Huth and Lakshmi Ketineni
    Here’s the deal: Presidential candidates issue plenty of pointed barbs in debates, but they use a lot of filler language, too. Phrases such as “let’s be clear” and “the end of the day,” buy the speaker time to collect themselves, think ahead and formulate an answer. Among the Democratic contenders, the fact is, Vice President Joe Biden utters them most frequently (and “the fact is” has been his most-used phrase). The Wall Street Journal identified 23 commonly used three-, four- and five-word phrases and their variations spoken by candidates during the four Democratic presidential debates and tracked the number of...

    The Democrats are facing a grim choice for 2020. Nominate someone who they fear can't complete a sentence and wanders off in his thoughts, or take one of the other contenders and face the prospect of an "electoral blowout" in the Rust Belt again. [snip] International affairs professor Tom Nichols painted the Democrats' dilemma in the starkest terms. He first pointed out that Biden was never the kind of guy who "finished sentences; didn't get lost in his thoughts . . . He's always been gaffe-prone and a little uncertain." Nevertheless, concluded Nichols, "are you going to go with that,...
