Elizabeth Warren on Syria and Syrian refugees

Marco Rubio shames America

What a monstrous thing to say. Rubio is getting cute by first lumping together all Muslims, and then saying "Oh no, not all Muslims." First the racist dog whistle, then back off. That being said, listen to the clip, and he's not saying that much that's different from the current policy: "The only way to defeat ISIS is for Sunnis themselves to take up the bulkhead [sic] of the fight". Frankly he says it more clearly than Hillary. - promoted by charley-on-the-mta

Anderson Cooper’s debate distortion

Open thread … the Democratic Debate

NYT summarizes the final outcome:
"In a series of sometimes biting exchanges, Mrs. Clinton declared that Mr. Sanders was misguided in his handling of crucial votes on gun control and even in his grasp of how essential capitalism is to the American identity. Mocking Mr. Sanders’s admiration for the health care system of Denmark, she interrupted a moderator to offering a stinging assessment of his logic, suggesting he was unprepared to grapple with the realities of governing a capitalist superpower. “I love Denmark,” Mrs. Clinton said, with a wry smile. “We are not Denmark,” she added. “We are the United States of America.” The crowd erupted in applause. A few moments later, Mrs. Clinton took aim at what may be Mr. Sanders’s greatest vulnerability with the Democratic left, asking why he had voted to shield gun makers and dealers from liability lawsuits. Mr. Sanders, who linked his record on gun control to his representation of a rural state, called the bill “large and complicated.” “I was in the Senate at the same time,” Mrs. Clinton replied. “It wasn’t that complicated to me. It was pretty straightforward.”
