Joe BidenCongratulations to our presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden!

The real message from yesterdays primary was for Bloomberg

Now that Biden is back in the game, does Bloomberg continue to play the spoiler or does he slip out the backdoor quietly? Biden proved last night that he's the big dog and you don't fuck with the big dog. Heading into SC Biden's got the high-ground and Bernie will struggle, this is the real battle we've been waiting for. Plus with Warren now having successfully discredited Bloomberg, is there any reason for him to be in this at all.

I suspect on Sunday morning next week we'll be looking at an entirely different field with Biden on top.

2. We are putting to much into the debate

 

Mike's media buys are much more relevant. I think, I hope, after Super Tuesday it's Joe and Mike left.

9. Oh, boy, I would LOVE that. From my point of view, that's a can't lose.

 

Either you get a guy, admittedly with baggage, who will kick ass against climate change and gun laws and will absolutely go after trump and his cronies,

OR you get a guy who will continue Obama's legacy.

But it's too good to be true. I'm not holding my breath.

3. Wow. Nevada was big dog for Biden?

 

Ok. Mayor Pete is 4 percent behind him and 50 percent of the vote is still out. Congrats Bernie!!!!

4. Biden's spot in Nevada was encouraging for him, but not a huge comeback.

 

Especially considering Pete was right on his heels.

SC should be quite interesting, and Super Tuesday will tell the tale.

5. Bloomberg is spending a lot of money attacking Trump.

 

That's good! Right?

6. Bloomberg isn't even on the ballot in SC, Joe knows he needs a big win or he's probably done

 

10 days till Super Tues, it will become much clearer after that, hold on tight

7. Bloomberg is working on his legacy.

 

He feels the breath of the grim reaper on the back of his neck, and he has decided to do something good with his money before he dies. His first goal is to defeat Trump. Good for him! Being President of the United States would be an added bonus, but there's no way he's giving up. He's got nothing better to do.

10. Because dedicating the time since his mayoral term to keeping Planned Parenthood open and

 

very effectively fighting climate change, and fighting successfully for sensible gun laws wasn't doing something good with his money?

11. That was good, obviously, but that's not what he's doing now. He set his sights higher.

 

I feel like I am missing your point.

8. SC is an open primary and we have Russia at work

 

So Biden has factors against him that no one was seeing until now.


Does his campaign even have a plan for Russian aggression in the primary?

Is the republican plan to flood the Dem primary growing ot fizzling?

If don't understand these factors Bloomberg will remain

14. re: "Biden proved last night that he's the big dog"

 

No, he proved he's not dead. We won't know how much life he has in him until after South Carolina. It would be silly for anyone to make any decision about Biden's strength without waiting at least until then.

MineralMan, I just want you to know that although I am new to posting I been reading your posts for years. Surely I don't agree with a lot of what you post but I do agree with much and I've learned a huge amount from it since I'm newer to the game (although not young myself). Thanks for all the wisdom you posted over the years political/unrelated and some really insightful thoughts.

17. Biden is making up stories about

 

Being arrested in South Africa. For some reason Dems are ignoring that. If Biden should get the not-Bernie vote and get the nomination, we’re not going to hear the end of it from the GOP, who will show him as going senile. They’ll also dig up more Hunter Biden stuff—you notice that’s been on the back burner, but if Joe is in the GE that’s going to make a comeback. Bloomberg’s past problems, by contrast, won’t hurt in a GE, only a Dem primary.

That he did NOT get arrested in SA yet?

Why are we assuming he made that up ...
