Despite attacks from all sides, Biden slurs his way to safety
PX3 RECAP PODCAST
It wasn't anything you'd like to post on Joe303030 about, but Biden survived.
And that will likely be the only takeaway from what was otherwise a lackluster debate billed as Biden vs. Harris 2.
Here are my notes:
Biden starts strong, sounds old, survives
When you expect someone to die, they get credit for living. That's the Joe Biden story. He withstood hits from Kamala, Castro, Gillibrand and De Blasio and didn't melt down like in Miami. That being said, he still sounded really old and still has a very curious habit of taking the bait on discussing issues from 20 years ago in intricate detail.
But he was feisty, alert and even threw a bomb back in De Blasio's face on a NAFTA gotcha.
Hell, he even dusted off a "Mularkey" for old time's sake.
On his last night as a television debate candidate, Bennet suggests our border issues should really be about comprehensive immigration reform
Perfect timing considering Bennet 2020 is likely seconds away from oblivion.
But seriously, why is every border discussion about decriminalizing or lamenting the current state of things. We have candidates pitching ambitious 10 year plans on health care and the environment... why so short sighted on immigration?
Castro not as good without a Beto to knife
Julian acquitted himself well and continued to own the immigration issue... but.... it just wasn't the same without him sucking the soul out of the sullen wispy corpse of Beto.
Tulsi flexes her military might and continues to make a good impression
She called Kamala a cop and owns any kind of discussion about military intervention. Who knows where it goes but it might be enough to move Tulsi into the next round of debates.
Yang improves by 1000% in a month
He was funny, broke the fourth wall and did a good job of explaining why the $1000 a month Freedom Dividend isn't just a massive welfare expansion. That's pretty much all you could hope for considering he was a wall flower in the Miami debates.
