  1. When do we eject these old people out of politics? They measure everything by yesterday's standards, preventing a new approach. Yesterday's standards aren't working anymore!!!!!

  2. 🎶 YOUNG GIRLS , GET OUT OF JOE'S SIGHT !! HE'LL SNIFF YOU TOO , IT'S JUST A MATTER OF TIME !! BETTER RUN GIRL !! JOE'S SNIFF'N YOUNG GIRLS !! 🎵

  3. These people are clueless about average Americans. They're still analizing like this was a debate from the 80's. Our planet is on fire and they are worried about decorum. #Clueless

  4. I don't care which of these people emerges at the top of the pyramid – I will vote for whoever is at the top of the Dem ticket – they all have flaws but none of them is a racist – I will not allow Trump to return to the White House after Jan of 2021.

  5. Republicans often frame Democrats as weak, yet when a Democrat (in this case Castro) actually talks tough and ruffles feathers of the Washington elite, he's called out as hurting his message. I for one want a President who has good, progressive policy and is willing to buck the system/establishment to get things done! And sure, Castro isn't the most progressive Democrat, but he certainly has been outlining specific policies and calling out corporate/establishment Democrats from all 3 Debates.

  6. Warren/Bernie 2020. Time for real change, not centrist/moderate/corporate/repub light "dems" like biden.

    That kind of status quo is part of the reason 45* was installed: many dems are sick of dems being almost as plutocrat as repubs and so didn't vote for HRC (especially after the failed promise of obama, another corporate shill).

  7. personally Kamala is all over the page, from childish giggling to a street fight mud slinging approach with no substance confident politics in between.  Think she's a wishy washy as Trump

  8. Agreed Booker was stellar tonight in his demeanor.  He's calmed hi fury and presented his intellect and passion with more professionalism in the past.  He's a sharp passionate person , though don't think he'll make presidency, needs a stronger future position in the white house.  He needs to head up arms control and criminal justice reform.  Beto also had a more poised confidence and deliverance.  I think Texas would love to see him in the Senate.

  9. Biden's voting record shows what he is: morally unfit, and a DINO: repub lite/corporate dem.

    For mass incarceration
    For Iraq war
    For bankruptcy reform act
    For NAFTA
    Against school desegregation
    Against marriage equality

    He's not a "safe choice centrist"; he's the exact type of DINO that has done little to nothing for the 99% which has resulted in such voter anger that a revolt has occurred allowing 45* to be installed. If biden gets in, and even if he gets 8 years, sooner or later another 45* will come along because biden will do nothing for 99% of the people. And this new 45* might actually be competent, meaning democracy in the US will die. Warren/Bernie 2020: real dems with the progressive change we've needed for decades.

  10. WINNERS & LOSERS from this ADOS/ black agenda policy voters point of view : Winners: NOBODY on that stage LOSERS Tulsi & Marianne. The candidates thinking attacking Biden/Obama is a good idea. Castro, Harris, Booker, Beto and Mayor Pete LETTING Elizabeth Warren cruise the debates while attacking Obama/ Biden . LAST., Immigrants policy are more important than black agenda policy . This is why SOME ADOS voters are voting lower ballot in 2020 not president.
