LIVE: Warren, Sanders Square Off Against Each Other in Democratic Debate

LIVE: Warren, Sanders Square Off Against Each Other in Democratic Debate

First Democratic debate of the second round.

The second Democratic debate happens tonight at 8PM ET in Detroit, MI, on CNN. Since so many qualified for the second round, the Democratic Party spread the debate across two days with ten candidates each night.

Tonight we will see Sanders and Warren.

Foreign Policy

Can someone tell Elizabeth Warren about WWII?


Apparently government enforced segregation still exists. And environmental racism!

Flint Finally Comes Up

It took 95 minutes for the moderators to bring up the Flint, MI, water crisis, even though the debate is in Detroit. Williamson had the most emotional answer to the shock of no one.

Climate Crisis

Delaney spelled out his plan:

Defeat Trump?

OK, I have to admit this is an odd question. CNN asked the candidates if the Sanders is too extreme to beat Trump. This isn’t a fair question even though I agree he is. Tim Ryan reminded everyone that Hillary also led in polls when Sanders boasted about his standings in the polls.

It’s basically a way to determine which candidate is far-left and moderates.


That evil NRA. No one could honestly give a straight answer because we all know what it comes down to: repealing the 2nd Amendment.


It’s all about open borders…even though they talked about laws and securing our borders. Anyone else the

Health Care

Jake Tapper began the debate with health care. Sanders went off the rails with his Medicare for All while Delaney shot him down insisting that it’s suicide if the Democrats go with this way.

Sanders and Warren blasted the

At least AOC admits it.

Previous Reporting

These candidates will take the stage tonight:

  • Author Marianne Williamson
  • Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH)
  • Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN)
  • South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg
  • Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT)
  • Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA)
  • Former Rep. Robert O’Rourke
  • Former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper
  • Former Rep. John Delaney (D-MD)
  • Montana Gov. Steve Bullock

NPR had the same thought I did about Sanders and Warren. Will there be any distinctions drawn between the two? Something tells me they will try to out-socialism the other one with Sanders once again yelling at clouds.

If I recall correctly the candidates did not bring up former Special Counsel Robert Mueller in the last debate. That may change since he testified in front of two congressional committees last week.

Sanders, Hickenlooper, Warren, O’Rourke, Ryan, and Klobuchar support an impeachment inquiry on President Donald Trump. Buttigieg said he favors “beginning impeachment proceedings, but cautioned they’d likely hit a roadblock in the Republican Senate.”

I hope the debate does not turn into chaos like the first two nights on NBC.

Sorry – busy tonight! I’ll watch paint dry, or Chasing the Moon for the 2nd time on PBS.

Here, I offer my psychic-transcript blog of the Democrat debate so far this evening:

Sanders: “Meowrawrrrrrrrr!!”

Warren: “Ffffffttt!! Hissssssss!!”

Buttigieg: (“I hope I don’t look too gay.”)

Harris: “I don’t want to accuse anyone specifically, but everyone here except me is racist swine!!”

Certainty about tonight and tomorrow night, 1) lots of lies will be told, 2) they will promise lots of “free” stuff, and 3) everything they propose will increase the power of government and decrease freedom.

    The March of the Santa Clauses…. oh .. and little Jimmy will not get the Mattel Shoot’n Shell AK for “winter holiday” so that he will never be able to be naughty.

I will be watching “Never Come Down” at the local brew hut as I do most Tuesday evenings.

I have been avoiding the series but the women in my house are watching the final night of the bachelorette. So it’s a toss-up. They will be most likely equally edifying but which will have more drama?

I think some Czerny exercises followed by a bit of Arlen, Burgmüller, Kabalevsky, and a dash of Bartok before I settle on with a who dun it I’m reading.

“First Democratic debate of the second round.”

Have Dante wake me at the 5th level of this hell, so I can savor the burnt flesh of Leftism through the other four.

Of course it’s a drinking game…

Fauxcahontas, Kneepads Harris, Bernie the Crook, Biden the corrupt Perv, Flaky Williamson, Pete Butthead… Ugh.

There were a couple minutes there where Warren was arguing with Bullock about something. Warren was saying some ridiculous thing, and Bullock had the most wonderful smirk. I can’t imagine that Warren has a campaign left after that, but if she’s nominated it will make some easy TV spots for the Trump campaign.

    Another split screen, this time with Warren gesticulating on the left and Hickenlooper on the right shaking his head and looking amazed. Just a few seconds, but wonderful.

    I am watching on CNN. Maybe CNN is trying to eliminate Warren with these split-screens, because most of the debate is not split-screen, and Warren is the only one who has looked so bad in them.

Williamson saying the same irrelevant la la la stuff as last debate, she’s not interesting any more, plus we saw what she really thinks about requiring reparations.

Seeya Marianne, it was interesting, sort of, for a few minutes.

    artichoke in reply to artichoke. | July 30, 2019 at 9:50 pm

    Oh wow now Williamson announced her huge reparations idea: cash payments to descendants of black slaves, $200 – 500 billion.

    So she’s no longer la la la anymore.

Detroit is a fine standard by which to evaluate democrats in their craft. The very model of socialism in practice and fact.

    Once one of the worlds great cities, destroyed by the progs in a couple decades.

      notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital in reply to Barry. | July 31, 2019 at 1:45 pm

      Yes, with the greatest industries in the world…..

      But that was before……DEMOCRATS!!!!!!!!!!

Who screwed up Klobuchar’s eyebrows?

Oops, no, too busy to watch the Dems. Instead, I picked up the Kindle version of:

Justice on Trial: The Kavanaugh Confirmation and the Future of the Supreme Court Kindle Edition
by Mollie Hemingway

I am happy.

    If Kamala Harris is nominated, the video of her questioning of Kavanaugh should be enough to sink her. She’s acting like the NKVD, bringing up a totally fictitious story to try to get Kavanaugh to slip up in some tiny way, to fall into a perjury trap about a completely made-up story.

Newton was right about action…reaction. For every positive step forward with Trump the Left goes for a negative step backward.

A good reason to legalize all drugs… having to sit through a Dem debate. Sometimes alcohol just doesn’t cut it.

Jeeezze. A nationwide talent search, and that pathetic lineup is the result.
