the only thing il trumpy has "delivered" to any of us [aside from the rich who are a LOT RICHER due to him] is a load of bullshit and lots of worries.

Sanford says he is launching primary challenge against Trump

Quote:
Former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford will launch a longshot primary challenge for the 2020 Republican nomination, he announced Sunday, giving President Donald Trump another Republican challenger as he runs for reelection.

"I had planned to announce that back home this week. We had a hurricane come visit us on the coast of South Carolina so that sort of disrupted plans on that front," Sanford said in an interview on "Fox News Sunday." "But I am here to tell you now, that I am going to get in."
When asked why he was running, he said because "I think we need to have a conversation on what it means to be a Republican," adding that he thinks the Republican Party has lost its way on "a couple different fronts."

Sanford, discussing what was then a potential candidacy, told CNN's Brianna Keilar in July there has been "no discussion of debt, deficit and government spending in Washington these days," and that those issues would be a focal point of his campaign were he to run. However, although Sanford has been a frequent critic of Trump, he has said he would back the President instead of a Democrat.

His decision to challenge Trump comes after losing his primary race last year for South Carolina's 1st Congressional District where he failed to find support in the state's Republican Party as a vocal critic of the President.
In a tweet after making his announcement on Sunday, Sanford said he respects the views of his Republican friends who have suggested that he should not run, but that "competition makes us stronger."

In a campaign-style video released last month, Sanford warned of "a big storm coming" if the issues of debt, the deficit or government spending aren't prioritized.
"I just got through watching two Democratic debates that offered little more than a long laundry list of new political promises that we can't afford," Sanford says. "I listen to the President, who rules out action on the very things that drive our debt and spending."
America, he added, is "in the most precarious financial position" and "not dealing with it could crush our economy, it could wipe out whatever we've saved, it could even destroy our republic."

For Sanford, Walsh and Weld, the inability to compete in multiple primaries could all but block an already unlikely path to victory. It's also unlikely that Trump would agree to primary debates, denying his GOP rivals an important platform.
"The RNC and the Republican Party are firmly behind the President," said RNC spokeswoman Blair Ellis, "and any effort to challenge him in a primary is bound to go absolutely nowhere."

the GOP at least useta have a pretense of morality, now with sanford [philanderer and waster of state's money] they have a mere horndog in the same category as their president. the only thing the GOP stands for now, is "i've got mine so screw you!"

Holy [email protected] someone needs to get Joe to a doctor. He was falling apart before our eyes last night. And he kept letting out long rambling monologues about things that didn’t make sense.

Bernie needs to hang it up and join the Trump administration. I guess that advisor post is open right now. He’s been doing this thing where he will say, “What we need to talk about is [subject]! All Trump does is tweet! What we need to do is [current Trump administration policy]!” Come on, now. I know I can’t be the only person noticing this.

The debate would have been much better if they would have thrown Castro, Klouchbucher or whatever her name is, and Harris out on their ears. All they did was make jokes. Joe needs to be excused from the race for being a zombie. I don’t like the rest of them, but at least they seem to have actual ideas that they can speak about.

Also, I think one of these secret Trump policy lovers (Bernie, Buttigieg, Harris) should just step out boldly and say they like some of his policies. If they’re trying to get independent and republican votes that would be the way.

What are the Chances Biden will drop out? Warren looks amenable to the powers that be and her numbers are near around Biden's last I heard, so...

The irony is that Houston itself is very progressive, but once you get into the suburbs, it’s Trump Central. There is no in-between. And the more progressive neighborhoods, such as Montrose and the Heights, have been gentrified to Kingdom Come.

The average home price in Houston is just under $300,000.

I hope they go for Warren or Biden. Trump will mash them both

This is just seriously painful to watch. Joe Biden says his tax plan would put "720 million women" back in the workforce. (Hint: the entire US population is 330 million. Maybe he means all the women in China?)

I could only watch about half of this. I can't stand Biden, but this shows the DNC needs to remove him from the race not for his politics, but for incapacity.

Debates between Biden and Trump would be comedy gold.
