Last night was the fourth Democrat Presidential Debate.
On today’s show we discussed the Democrat debate fallout, Elizabeth Warren’s frontrunner status, and the Democrat Party’s obsession with abortion.
Everyone is saying that Elizabeth Warren is the frontrunner and the winner in this. I think that’s accurate, as she certainly sustained the most attacks from the other candidates.
Bernie Sanders looked strong, especially for a guy who has been through a heart attack and had heart surgery.
I really see this as a two person race, or maybe even a three person race, with Warren, Biden, and possibly Sanders remaining. During the debate Joe Biden looked done to me. He had a rough night. I don’t know if he can recover.
Jordan said it was a horrendous night for Joe Biden. He also pointed out that Biden didn’t answer the question about why his son said he did talk to him about Ukraine when the former VP says he didn’t.
ACLJ Director of Government Affairs Thann Bennett analyzed the state of the race:
“The former Vice-President is out of gas. I also think if you look at the reactions of all the other candidates, they agree that Elizabeth Warren is now the frontrunner. I think it was very clear by their actions. I do think that she needs to be a little bit worried by how vigorous Bernie Sanders did look. I don’t think he’s going to be the nominee. I think his support has cratered too much for that but the 15% or so he garners has been very fervent and has been with him for a long time. What he did last night was hold on to that for a while. That was the next bloc she was looking at. I don’t she gets that for a while.”
And it’s being reported that three out of the four “squad” members – Rep. Tlaib, Rep. Omar, and fellow self-described socialist Rep. Ocasio-Cortez – will be officially endorsing Sen. Sanders. Which other candidates like Sen. Warren might actually be relieved to given some of their more radical ideologies.
She might not have sealed the deal but it appears that Elizabeth Warren is in the driver’s seat.
ACLJ Senior Counsel and Director of Policy Harry Hutchison analyzed the debate from a policy perspective:
“From a policy perspective, even though many analysts say Elizabeth Warren was the winner, I think in some respects she was the loser. She didn’t have answers for her policy proposals. With respect to Medicare for All, she could not explain whether the middle class would see their taxes go up. That is the centerpiece of her policy proposals. I thought she was particularly vague there.”
The winners of last night appear to be Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders. She’s the frontrunner. He looked robust, particularly in light of his recent health issues, and clearly was fully engaged.
Later in the debate Senator Kamala Harris demonstrated the Democrats’ obsession with abortion when she outlined her plan to codify Roe v. Wade:
“My plan is as -- as follows. For any state that passes a law that violates the Constitution, and in particular Roe v. Wade, our Department of Justice will review that law to determine if it is compliant with Roe v. Wade and the Constitution, and if it is not, that law will not go into effect.
This is still a fundamental issue of justice for women in America. Women have been given the responsibility to perpetuate the human species. Our bodies were created to do that. And it does not give any other person the right to tell a woman what to do with that body. It is her body. It is her right. It is her decision.”
One thing Senator Harris and other candidates made clear last night is that the Democrat Party continues to worship at the altar of abortion.
