Elizabeth Warren grabs spotlight, MSNBC hardly challenges The candidates

in the proximity ofvideo Elizabeth Warren is the highest polling candidate on night one of the first in 2020 and the democratic debate

Former DCC-deputy executive director, Ty Matsdorf, and former NRSC chief digital strategist Tim Cameron to weigh, what can the audience expect from the candidate on the night of the first 2020 Democratic presidential debate.

The first democratic debate was always destined to be about Elizabeth Warren, and she took the initiative, with the first question.

The U.S. senator from Massachusetts, smoothly a question about the economy took by saying: “It’s great for a thinner and thinner slice at the top,” singling out the drug companies and oil companies at the expense of, say, the African-Americans.

And the O-Ton: “This is corruption, pure and simple.”


The next candidate offered variations of the same theme. Amy Klobuchar, proposes free community college, was the first to take a shot at President Trump. Beto O’rourke said, “This economy has to work for all” before the break in Spanish and ducked a question on whether he supported the 70 percent tax rate. Cory Booker hits the same note, talking about his less-than-affluent, minority neighborhood. Tulsi Gabbard said she would be “in the interests of the rich and powerful.”

The MSNBC moderators do not distribute the time evenly among the 10 competitors in Miami. Warren got several questions in the first half hour and showed a finely honed sense of the slamming corporate America.

To many large companies, she says, they are only interested in profits and are quick to move jobs to Mexico, Canada or Asia. At another point, Warren explains that she was “called to the monopolist.”

The senator also gave a passionate answer on why they back Medicare for All — but completely the question of why it was OK to eliminate private insurance coverage for 150 million Americans ducked. Even if you had to complain a second bite of the apple, that insurance companies are “sucked in $ 23 billion profit from the system” in the last year — it was no trouble to get your pin to force down on the people to give up their private insurance coverage.

This was a Central weakness of the MSNBC approach. Lester Holt questions and Savannah Guthrie asked bread-and-butter policy, but under strong pressure of time, only a few token efforts to press the candidates, ignored the thrust of your questions. O’rourke would not be the answer, if he supported the 70 percent tax rate, even if his fudge was pointed out.

The presenters challenged never really the candidate with a different view point in the first hour. Holt and Guthrie not to ask about restrictions of late-term abortion. You didn’t say, “Hey, not a country needs some of the cross-border enforcement?’ You didn’t say, “Hey, do you want to blow up really the private health insurance for an all-government program?” The entire debate was carried out safely, within the limits of the liberal Orthodoxy.

(In the second hour, Chuck Todd was more aggressive and far-reaching, called Warren, as they seized on his specific question on weapons; press Klobuchar on the weapon, and raising the costs for fighting climate change. Rachel Maddow, a liberal opinion host, read scripted questions were easy, but even alone the lines of: “Are you doing enough to mobilize black and Latino voters?”)

The Democrats vied with each other to protect on your passion, the right to an abortion, but she couldn’t with Warren, who said, you can’t rely on the courts and the Congress must the anchoring Roe v. Wade in Federal law.

To these and other questions, the candidates were literally to play. There was virtually no effort, the Republicans or the independent, which may not have subscribed to the left line. Some of them sound like open-borders advocates, or pretty close to it.

It only flashes were incomprehensible, the debate between the candidates as a noise over illegal immigration between O’rourke and Julian Castro, was, as you quoted sections of the various laws.

I was mildly surprised, it was the trump-bashing, the occasional blows. But the group had decided together it was pushing important to your policy, and the TV audience.


If there is a dark horse as a strong debater in Miami, it was Bill de Blasio, but unfortunately for him, even a majority of New Yorkers didn’t want him to run to was.

In fact, Gabbard’s sister tweeted on her account: “It is clear, who MSNBC wants to be President: Elizabeth Warren. You give her more time than all the other candidates.” (This was literally wrong.)

ly because of the boost, Warren was the winner on several counts. It was fresh and confident, had a consistent theme — corporations are ruining America and no one took a shot at you. They projected a warm torments to the question about school shootings.

Warren had planned luck in the lottery, with the other top-tier candidates, Biden, Sanders, Buttigieg, Harris, for Thursday evening. And you took advantage of the opportunity.
