Why is Steyer new ad saying

that HE is the only one who can challenge rump on the economy?

This implies that he and rump are equals in some manner as to business or something.

Rump knows NOTHING about business, is on record as the greatest failure in history, and Steyer uses these stats in his ad but then when he says the other cant challenge rump on this I want to SCREAM!

ANY of our candidates are one MILLION times more qualified to deal with business or the economy than the DUMBEST ADULT ALIVE!


edit

Original title of thread was me saying he is NOT a D candidate, I was wrong, I fixed it

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

him for the third debate fail.

That an obscure billionaire with no history of public service, who before he started couldn't have produced a half dozen citizens (non-sycophants) who thought he'd be a good president, could just buy donors and poll data to access our debates is a serious problem we have a big duty to fix. Not being as psychiatrically disordered as Trump does not qualify billionaires to be our nominees.

4. He has a successful business record. Compare that to Trump"s business record of fraud and failure.

Then judge who is most likely to understand the economy. That is what he is saying. I don't see anything inaccurate in that.

I've seen campaign ads with Democrats saying they'd do x, y, z, but I don't recall Democratic ads saying I alone can fix it.

The idea of a campaign ad is to explain why you're better than the other candidates. That is the whole point.

17. Anxiously awaiting these since that is EXACTLY what the poster claimed!

The reason it caught MY EYE is I am a LIBERAL and a DEMOCRAT and I support the party and I dont recall any of them ever talking like that EVER.

All anyone has to say now is "my bad, I did Not mean any of our people claim they alone can fix anything."


Contrary to what some people think, I want us to be UNITED, I want us to NOT argue and BASH the others candidates.

And while I am careful NOT to bash anyone here, I would even agree to try and comment ONLY when it is positive about that candidate if THEY would do the same.

party donor we have is worth billions and he KNOWS business. He's more than qualified to take Trump on. Especially when it comes to business and the economy.
