Bernie and Amy did a great job tonight.

I thought both of their arguments were substantive and provided a counterpoint to Graham and Cassidy's evasiveness on key issues. When the Republicans resort to fear tactics (Socialism omg!!!) you know you've won. Kudos to both Senators.

EDIT: Grammar

2. We thought so too.

It was a very good response between the two of them. They seemed to like each other and compliment each other's arguments.

3. Graham and Cassidy both suck at debating and looked like

assholes. Thought Cassidy was doing okay even though he was lying through his teeth until Bernie ask him if he would join him in letting medicare negotiate drug prices. He didn't answer the question an went into a series of ad hominem attacks on Sanders. Dude looked like a total jerk from that point on and Graham not only attacked the ACA medicaid expansion,but also attacked the core medicare program was not a good look for him.

6. Yep! But Amy should have had more time. The D-Duo stole much time!

We need to demand ALL our time!

7. Yep, that's a typical debate tactic...

 

When you know you're on the losing side of an argument, take up as much speaking time as possible. That way you're opponent has less time to kick your ass while the audience is forced to listen to you, and the more they listen to you the more likely they are to be swayed by what you have to say.

12. I'd have preferred Bernie & Amy did this ...

Play good cop / bad cop with one of them doing away with niceties and gentile protocols by making Graham & Cassidy look like fools and calling them Liars to their faces and challenging them to be honest with their constituents and the American Public and to stop pulling the wool over their eyes and getting their heads out of the sand ...... or Trump's ass !!
