I just saw Elizabeth Warren on The View. She picked up where she left off lst night.

 

She said "I'm sure Michael Bloomberg will spend another $100 million on ads to make people forget about last night's Debate."


I also watched it,  Gordyfl.  I like Warren and she in no way reminds me of Hillary.

I'm no member of Congress but I can easily name the leaders of these countries and more...

 

Let me ask people here. ..

 

Who is the leader of France?

 

The leader of Germany?

 

Canada?

 

Israel?

 

The UK?

 

Russia?

 

Japan?

 

China?

 

Turkey? 

 

Philippines?

 

Syria?

 

North Korea?

 

I guess I shouldn't expect members of Congress to know the leaders of the two countries that border us. It's revealing.

I remember Warren defended Klobuchar for not knowing who the President of Mexico is. I sort of recall Warren attacking Klobuchar later on some issue. I'll have to look it up which issue.

But getting back to the Mexican President question. Klobuchar has worked on many issues concerning Mexico, so it surprised me she couldn't just rattle it off.

 

By asking that question, the Mexican journalist was making a point how countries just south of our country, even touching our border, are viewed by Americans - and American leaders.

 

Let me ask people here. ..

 

Who is the leader of France?

 

The leader of Germany?

 

Canada?

 

Israel?

 

The UK?

 

Russia?

 

Japan?

 

China?

 

We can go on. But our neighbor who borders us in the South, most Americans don't know. I guess we don't consider them important. To the Hispanic community, not being able to answer that question is revealing. 


If she didn't know the salient issues facing Mexico, or the scope or significance of our economic interdependence with that country, I'd be concerned. But a name slipping her mind? It's embarrassing but I don't think it's reflective of whether Mexico is important to her or not, at least not in this isolated instance.

I thought Warren was fantastic and I truly appreciated her takedown of  Bloomberg and his non disclosure agreements with women he allegedly harassed. 

..........................

 

She has class. 


 

A Hillary Clinton look-alike.....who would get Trump reelected for sure.

But even more, I appreciated her coming to Amy Klobuchar's defense over forgetting the name of the Mexican President.

Frankly, I didn't know whether to duck and cover.

 

Bloomberg did have a good line when he said "We are not going to defeat Trump with this conversation".

You're right, attacking each other isn't debating, it's using trump's tactics on each other.


That seems to be a trait of Democrats, even on political forums.  I've already sent in my absentee ballot; voting for Bloomberg since he has been directing his comments against Trump.


At least Bloomberg is not offering everything free as well as raising taxes on everyone.
