      I skipped the last debate.  Maybe I will watch this one.  Though with 12 people, we can expect Tulsi to have 5 minutes max.

        @salemcourt I hear you. These are not real debates, more like a cheap reality show with the moderators trying to shape the narrative and then people voting for who had the best one-liner. They are tedious to watch for anyone who wants to hear about actual policy, because there isn’t any time allowed for that, which is quite deliberate.

        The corporate media doesn’t want people thinking about policies. They want them thinking about personalities. Since I hate reality shows, I doubt I’ll be able to sit through an hour, if that.

        I agree. She’s just going to have to assert herself and butt in, if need be. Enough of these corrupt corporate owned talking heads thinking they can choose our candidates for us – on behalf of the corrupt DNC, of course.

        Fuck them. Tulsi just needs to go for it!

      Twelve people on stage at once is way too many. I figure this debate will be useless. One liners, zingers, and puke worthy, “I was that little girl,” moments are about all we can expect. There’s just not enough time for anything else. Ten was already a mess. They’re all forced to be hyper assertive, butting in all the time, talking over each other, in order to have a shot at inserting themselves into the conversation.

      It’ll be like a debate version of those black friday videos showing crowds of people trampling over each other in a rush buy cheap TVs. On the plus side, it will be funny to watch them, desperate for attention, raising their hand, letting out a, “But I…,” with that put me in coach look on their face.

      Has anyone noticed that Bernie and Tulsi seldom get any time on these things?

      They let the conservative candidates run on forever,but Bernie and Tulsi they cut short or ignore them when they petition to speak.

        @mizzgrizz Of course we have. The moderators will ignore Bernie and Tulsi as much as possible, except maybe to try to stoke a conflict between Bernie and Warren; for ratings, of course. I hope they do, and that Bernie takes the opportunity to differentiate himself from Warren. OTOH, they may never give him the chance. Those of us who watch that travesty of a debate will see–I doubt I can stomach it.

        And welcome to JPR. Notice how I replied to your reply? I clicked on the Reply button on the bottom right corner of your reply itself, and copied and pasted your username in to send you a notification. It’s a bit awkward, but until we get a reply tree that’s the best we can do.

      Tulsi needs to bring up Hunter’s Ukraine adventure immediately. With the DNC saying that no one should touch this issue, Trump can say they are engaged in a cover up. There’s lots of dirt there that needs to be brought to light. ByeDone will just completely lose it.

      I just saw my notification as well.

      Debate prediction: Once again people google/search her name as much, or more, than any other candidate that was up on stage. Her fund raising goes up, and she gets closer, or even achieves, the 5% total from approved polls for two upcoming primaries so as to qualify for the November debate.

      Whatever it takes, while not selling out; she’s playing the cards at her disposal very well indeed.

      The Democratic establishment might wake up and realize that they need to embrace her, and maybe even her ideas, and make her part of the face that the party presents for 2020. That was the thinking when they made her a Vice Chair going into 2016, but Gabbard was too ethical to go along with the DNC stacking the deck against Sanders.

      Speaking of who, it might become incumbent on him to have her six during the debate, if her character gets attacked. That would be the right thing to do, and the pragmatic thing to do, as choosing to do that, instead of staying silent, is something I see as important to his fundraising. I told a caller from his campaign I’ll kick in another donation immediately after he speaks up for the person who spoke up so eloquently for him in 2016.

        Bernie definitely owes Tulsi! Big time. If she gets attacked by Biden, Warren, Harris,  asshole Klobuchar or the corrupt corporate owned MSM propaganda Network talking heads – he needs to step up to the plate and defend her. I hope he does.

      It only now just occurred to me that if having had twelve candidates on stage turns out to be an embarrassment for the DNC, and gets derided by Democratic voters as having been an obviously bad idea, then Gabbard will be the most vindicated for having called it, with Sanders running a close second.

      So I’m hoping that those who get shafted for time openly vent their frustration on stage, and even go far as to call out the moderators for showing favoritism, and ignoring important issues.

      If Gabbard asks, “Why aren’t we talking about this, this, this, this, and that”, which will be issues important to the campaigns of those polling behind the party’s favorites, they should see an opening to reclaim the speaking time denied them by chiming in, and also voicing their displeasure at that.

      Start a rebellion on stage. Make the unfair time constraints work against the moderators as once everyone wants to go on record that it’s unfair that their issues are getting shortchanged, there won’t be much time for anything else, and the moderators will end up de facto conceding that there’s not enough time allotted to even begin to be fair to everyone. The moderators will be cutting people off abruptly, and be obvious in who they’re giving time too. If that gets contested, then this “debate” could become known for the kind of fiasco it deserves to go down in history as, one that demonstrates the venal mind set of the establishment elites.

      They spend hours every day blathering, and then once a month they want to restrict the Presidential primary candidates to sound bytes limited to seconds. That’s a deliberate ploy to keep substance out of the debates, to just promise pie in the sky and then not deliver once the establishment’s candidate is installed in office.

      Good, see I’m not alone in my thought’s.
