Like today when Mr Trump tweeted he had no deal with the Dems, they should have called him out.

If it is reality TV shows they want, then give them reality TV shows.

Yup. Good idea!!! idea

I watched the big debate on cnn last night. What an incredible waste of time. The right did a brilliant job of changing the subject to Bernie's plan. The left, and the right, completely neglected to mention the almost trillion dollars taken out of medicare and medicaid (at about 50 billion per year). There was a 2 second mention that the actual corporate taxes paid is 16% and not 25% and all that all the tax breaks to allow the actual payments to be 16% rather than 35% are still in there that means that the actual taxes paid will probably be less than 10% when its all said and done.

In other words the right did a great job of lying and misdirection and the left seemed confused by it all. Oh, and the moderators didn't do much moderating. The right, basically, allowed the right to control the entire conversation and mouthed the same old.
