I see the knives are out for Tulsi big time now... [View all]

She's been a Democrat all her life and even #2 in the DNC but that's not as good as one candidate who refuses to join the party at all and another who was a Republican until a few years ago.

So, Fox picked up a remark and pushed it, but that means she made the comment for Fox to pick up? Seems to me at least one other candidate bitched and moaned about the party at some time. But an old feud with Hillary automatically puts her in the wrong.

Where is that proof that an Army major is in the pocket of the Russians, anyway? Didn't we just blow up about the slurs about a light colonel we happen to like?

I am no fan of Tulsi, but she doesn't seem to deserve this treatment. She is, after all, a Democrat running for President and should at least be treated as every other candidate is.

Do we still have this thing about not trashing Democrats? Or is it only certain Democrats. Even if they aren't registered Democrats.

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
