I guess CNN learned their lesson about giving free airtime to billionaires with very little public support...:roll:

Schultz, who said last month he is considering a run as a "centrist independent," will take questions from Texas voters on Tuesday, February 12, in this live event moderated by CNN's Poppy Harlow.

They're so dumb. The guy doesn't have a chance of winning (unless he gets all the airtime between now and Nov 2020). But corporate outlets just loves them some billionaire.

No, they love giving airtime to candidates that are supposedly "anti-establishment".

That worked so well last time didn't it...?

If they really liked 'anti-establishment' that much they'd have smothered us with Bernie instead of the orange Tourettes clown

You sound scared. Maybe you should dust off Hillary and run her again. See how she does against Scholtz.

He can only steal votes from the 2020 Democrat nominee so stay away.

Duh. I certainly don't want an independent candidate to step in and improve Trump's chances, because , duh again, I do not support Trump.

However nobody wants Clinton to run again. There are far better candidates this time around without all the baggage. Her time is done.

Dust her off....and help her up stairs and tell her not to bark like a dog or stutter when she talks or bob her head around like a cheap bobblehead.

I respect Howard not immediately folding, and will be paying attention to his argument. I am way scared for America with all of the "Dont allow them a platform, they suck!" I see know.

We used to know better.

What has that got to do with anything and why should I tell you? You need to explain that to my satisfaction before I answer.

The man asked you a question. It is polite to answer it; not ramble on an pretend you've got a point when nobody asked you to make one.

This is why Asian kids win scholarships and Washington state has an opioid crisis.

What you find interesting isn't important to me. You'd do well to respond questions when they're asked. It makes you look like a decent person.

Do you need instruction, Hawkeye10?

Last time you ****ed were did you stick it?

That question is exactly like Helix's question for me at the moment...rude not relevant and I see no reason to entertain it.

Best bet for dems to sweep 2020 is to get a moderate-left through primaries. Main goal for dems seems to be to get a socialist-left up against Trump.

If they found someone with appeal to the independents who is left of Trump by a decent measure and who can win over a crowd. They would get at least 45 states out of the gate. Schultz as an independent helps Trump. Him as a dem getting through primary would sweep.

If we get a real independent third party, I will be tempted to vote for them. Give me anyone who doesn't swing too far left and I will vote for them on dem ticket. Give me a Warren or Bernie and I will sit down. A lot of people agree with me. I hope we don't end up with 4 more years of Trump trying to make TDSers seem justified.

you aren't a Shultz supporter. you only care about him because you think that his campaign might help Trump.

Well, in a race absent Schultz it's hard to fault their reasoning. When you believe there is no chance of losing you tend grab for more than if it was close. But there are still moderate Democrats out their that are being drowned out by the socialist wing of the party, and and Schultz is their voice.

All that the complainers on here are wishing for it to deny their fellow moderate Democrats an option.

I am very disappointed in you..... I said way back about 6 months ago that I will not vote for Trump again, I have said over and over again that guys like Trump tend to wear our their welcome, I have said since the end of 2016 that Trump should be smart enough to know that he cant win a second term......not to mention that I am a much better person than you have me figured.....

Plus my wife works at Starbucks, at the headquarters, I was just there Tuesday.....inside the building with a badge and everything .......and I could only care about Howard because of Trump you say...

What a dud you turned out to be.

enjoy voting for Shultz, then. i would prefer that he run in the Democratic primary like everyone else. the idea of some billionaire asshole acting as a spoiler for the other billionaire asshole is not appealing to me.
