Democratic Candidates Sucking Up TV Time With Debate

Democratic presidential candidates Mike Gravel, Sen. Barack Obama, Sen. Chris Dodd, John Edwards, Rep. Dennis Kucinich, Sen. Joe Biden, Bill Richardson and Sen. Hillary Clinton gather on stage prior to the first presidential debate.

ORANGEBURG, S.C., April 26 – The eight Democratic presidential candidates used their first joint appearance Thursday to assail President Bush for threatening to veto legislation that would set a deadline for bringing troops out of Iraq, even as they sought to highlight differences among them on the depth of their opposition to the war and what they would do to end it.

For 90 mostly low-keyed minutes, the Democratic candidates offered a somewhat united front in denouncing Mr. Bush for the way he handled the war and saying that they should work to assemble the votes to try to override Mr. Bush’s expected veto. The debate came on the same day that four of the candidates on stage – all sitting Senators – had rushed back from Washington after voting in favor of the bill.

Wild Thing's comment........

Democrat Party presidential hopefuls gathered together and demonstrate that they are not afraid to give the finger to all Americans.

At one point, Mike Gravel, a former Senator from Alaska, said he wanted Congress to pass a law “making it a felony” for the administration to stay in Iraq. This man is totally a sicko. He was also around to do his ugly deeds during the Vietnam war and he was against the troops then too. He is a walking talking felony all on his own.

Sounds like they're all running on the "sour grapes" candidacy. Blame the President, but don't say how you'd solve the problems facing America today.
Do you actually have any good ideas or are you just running because you hate someone?

Never have I witnessed more traitors in one debate in my 50-year lifetime! So sad!! And 50% of 'supposed' Americans are buying their lies and garbage and treason?

I did not watch this debate. Eight left-wing egomaniacs was eight more than I wanted to hear. I assumed that the debate would primarily be more of a montage of anti-war, anti-Bush statements than an actual debate.

Did Edwards actually go 90 minutes without attending to his hairdo?

As a former Alaskan, Mike Gavel has long been on my 'list'. What an opportunity with all those traitors in one M26's range. Sorry I never watched the debate, not enough Tums to quell the stomach. The picture of them is nauseating enough.

I'll raise everyone here one Chris Dodd and call you. Dodd is the most delusional, cowardly and dishonest halfwit in the Senate. Even the DNA-challenged Kucinich is more of a man.

Darth, I feel shame and the last time I felt like this was during the Vietnam War. Shame in our country, shame in so many of our leaders and so many of our citizens. Just shame that they are a part of the country I love so much.
