The second Democratic debate is in the can (thank God for small wonders)….and now the DNC is setting the rules for the next debate….rules that will not allow anyone not in the so-called “Top Tier” to participate.
Sorry but CNN fed these people red meat so they would attack and try to destroy a fellow Dem…..who thought we would hear Dems attacking Obama’s policies? We did on debate night.
This is illustrates just how sad the Democratic Party is these days.
Now the next debate in Houston……
Look at those that have “qualified”….they are not the best but rather the favorites of the media and the DNC
The Democratic field may look a lot smaller by the time next month’s debates roll around, the New York Times reports. The Democratic National Committee has new rules to determine who makes the cut, which could exclude a dozen or so of the remaining candidates. To appear in the Sept. 12 and Sept. 13 debates in Houston, candidates must have 2% backing across four polls and 130,000 unique donors by August 28. Seven are shoo-ins: Joe Biden, Sen. Cory Booker, South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Sen. Kamala Harris, Beto O’Rourke, Sen. Bernie Sanders, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren. Julián Castro and Andrew Yang meet only the donor requirement, and Sen. Amy Klobuchar only the polling requirement. Vox lists the candidates at more serious risk:
- Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet
- Montana Gov. Steve Bullock
- New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio
- Former Maryland Rep. John Delaney
- Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard
- New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand
- Former Alaska Sen. Mike Gravel
- Former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper
- Washington Gov. Jay Inslee
- Miramar, Florida, Mayor Wayne Messam
- Massachusetts Rep. Seth Moulton
- Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan
- Former Pennsylvania Rep. Joe Sestak
- Billionaire and environmentalist Tom Steyer
- Author and activist Marianne Williamson
Once again the DNC is deciding who gets the coverage in this election cycle….they want only those that they approve of…..they are influencing who the voter will have to place their votes….not whom the voter wants but rather who the MSM wants.
Yes I am cheesed because my candidate is the list and no she is not the most popular with the MSM or the moderates in her party…..her message is getting stomp0ed on by collusion between the media and the moderates.
I agree that some of these candidates need to go home and play with the wife/husband…..but that decision should be made by the voters not the clowns and cowards that control the DNC….the biggest of which is Perez a big business lackey.
Now look at the MSM…..the debate was so important that a suicide of some Kennedy takes the place in importance.
