CNN'S Don Lemon: I understand what Joe Biden was trying to say * Video *

Don talked about how his mother believes that "the woke" will end up waking up the next morning with Trump being re-elected if they continue along this path.

He also said that candidates should be careful to not end up looking like opportunists by attacking their true allies, for political expediency, when they should be focused on the one in the White House who has proven not to be an ally...


** NEW ** Quinnipiac Poll (A- Rated) * Florida * Joseph Biden leads Trump by 9 points

In an early look at the 2020 presidential race in Florida, former Vice President Joseph Biden leads President Donald Trump 50 - 41 percent, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders leads President Trump 48 - 42 percent, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University Poll finds. Matchups between Trump and other leading Democratic contenders are too close to call:
Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren at 47 percent to Trump's 43 percent;
California Sen. Kamala Harris at 45 percent to Trump's 44 percent;
Former Texas U.S. Rep. Beto O'Rourke at 45 percent to Trump's 44 percent;
44 percent for South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg to 43 percent for Trump


I can't wait for the new Morning Consult Poll - I am sure that Biden will dominate...again...

Biden, Sanders, Buttigieg to debate; Warren on separate night

Former Vice President Joe Biden will face off against Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg in the first Democratic presidential debate this month, with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) appearing on a different night, NBC announced Friday.
This arrangement would leave Warren as the only top-tier candidate on stage the night of her debate. She would also not get the chance to go after either Biden or Sanders.
Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) would also be in the debate with Biden.


Howard Schultz Announces Campaign Staff Cut - and he's still eyeing Biden as his biggest competition

Howard Schultz Announces Campaign Staff Cuts, Summer Hiatus

The Starbucks billionaire won’t make a decision on running for president until after Labor Day — and he’s still eyeing Joe Biden as his biggest competition.


“While I was in Arizona, I unfortunately experienced acute back pain that required me to cut my travels short,” he wrote. “Over the following two months, I underwent three separate back surgeries. Today, I am feeling much better, and my doctors foresee a full recovery so long as I rest and rehabilitate. I have decided to take the summer to do just that.”

Early this year, Schultz announced that he was considering running for president as a centrist independent. He had traveled around the country doing public appearances and promoting his memoir ― while facing significant criticism from some Democrats who say that his run could help President Donald Trump win a second term.


***** New Quinnipiac Poll **** Biden 35%; Bernie 16%; Warren 13%

May 21, 2019 - Good Feelings On Economy Don't Help Trump, Quinnipiac University National Poll Finds; Biden Is Only Contender With Positive Score


WP Morning Mix: Trump says Biden 'deserted' Pennsylvania. In Scranton, he's a 'hometown boy.'

Big mistake on Trump's part - he is running scared and, at the same time, elevating Biden. Based on the Washington Post's comments section, Trump's idiotic remark is definitely backfiring...


Disqualifying: Bernie thinks Senator Inhofe (R) a climate-change denier is a decent guy and a friend


Let me note that my reason for posting this is to point out the irony in the numerous threads and posts (from non-Biden supporters) that relentlessly criticize him for having Republican friends and for desiring to work along with the other side - for Joe daring to give a speech about unity and not being angry.

I refer to a thread posted several days ago that read:

Disqualifying: Biden gave paid speech supporting Repuke in 2018

I am showing, through irony, how foolish it is to blast a politician for being amicable toward a colleague that might have differing views. Like Joe and Bernie, elected officials should be able to befriend Republicans and find common ground to work together, without being pummeled for doing so.

I hope that, after my explanation, the point that I am trying to drive home does not escape anybody...


“Jim is a climate-change denier. He is really, really conservative, but you know what, he is a decent guy and I like him, and he and I are friends,” Sanders told CNN’s Jake Tapper.

The above quote is found in parapgraph #10, in the article...


Bernie's mystery Soviet tapes revealed (by Politico)

Over the course of 10 days, Sanders, who was then the mayor of Burlington, and his dozen-member delegation traveled to three cities: Moscow, Yaroslavl and Leningrad, now known as St. Petersburg.

Their goal was to establish a “sister city” relationship with Yaroslavl, a community along the Volga River home to about 500,000 people. At the time, the Soviet Union was beginning to open itself to the world, if only slightly — and Sanders was a self-described socialist with an unusually large interest in foreign affairs for a mayor.


Under Obama, mass incarceration has decreased for the first time in nearly 50 years

Thank you, President Obama and Vice-President Biden!

This is action and results - not just talk. When Biden assumes office, he will continue what was started...
