But speaking of arguments based on um... "inaccuracies," all three of these claims are true and easily verifiable. You wouldn't know it but they are. Not that it's the press' job to compare Trump to Obama, but when Donald makes his false claims about them it is their duty to point it out.

Oh, and all those claims are based on Obama's last 30 months, not his entire term. The numbers from his first term are statistically irrelevant because they include recovering from the recession, so of course they'd be better.

So rather than admit your mistake you're going to pull a trump and claim it's a play on words...ok, explain your meaning please. Tell us how the word "boarders" fits in to the discussion.

Of course it was. Tell us all how the Democrats are like Nazis.

Movie execs reportedly pulled ads for a horror film where US elites hunt 'deplorables' for sport after the shootings in El Paso and Dayton. This movie was advertised on CNN durning the debate brakes. My wife and were shocked that CNN would show this ad.

Starting to wonder about Biden's gaffes. Today he added “Poor kids are just as bright, just as talented, as white kids" to the list. He tried to correct it but still didn't quite get there. And tonight he called Theresa May "Margaret Thatcher" for the second time. His speech yesterday was one of the best I've heard in years but he did stumble a lot in the beginning. I like the guy and most of his positions and I think he's one of the best "leaders" of the bunch, but I'm having my doubts about whether he's up to the challenge he'll get from the Right if he's the nominee.

Not being a fan of such movies I wonder what your objection to this film was?

Kamala Harris crashing in the polls.

https://www.mercurynews.com/2019/08/20/ ... andidates/

By Jennifer Agiesta | CNN Polling Director
Joe Biden has expanded his edge over the Democratic field in a new CNN poll conducted by SSRS, with 29% of Democratic and Democratic-leaning registered voters saying they back the former vice president.

That’s up 7 points compared with a late June CNN survey. No other candidate has made meaningful gains over that time.

The shift returns Biden to a double-digit lead over his nearest competitors, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders at 15% and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren at 14%. Their support is largely unchanged since earlier this summer.

Aside from Biden’s increase, the only statistically meaningful change in the candidate standings is a 12-point decline in support for California Sen. Kamala Harris, who stood at 17% support in the June poll but now has the backing of 5% of potential Democratic voters. That’s similar to the level of support she had in the spring before a surge following her initial debate performance.

I gotta think the survey was an anomaly. Biden's speeches have been strong lately but I can't think of any reason for Harris to drop by 12 points. I don't think she's been the strongest candidate but that's an unusual drop.

Buttigieg is also at 5% in that poll. He hasn't been all that visible, but still.

Not at all. I doubt he would ever consider voting for her.

I asked the same question when I read the comments of conservatives claiming Hillary Clinton stole the nomination from Sanders.

Why would he care unless he was going to vote for either one?

I submit he is the one trolling by posting an opinion looking for a response from her potential supporters.

He's laying the groundwork to delegitimize the election if he loses.

He knows his base will believe him.

The FEC Chair just demanded he prove his claims. He has not put forth anything.
