Hi LD, I just started watching it. Can’t hear it yet though because hubby is working. But the trailer said that the issue was the Botham Jean case & Cruz was talking. Maybe it’s better I couldn’t hear it?

How did Beto handle that one?

Benny

New topic: Botham Jean case.

Ted said that Beto called the law enforcement system a new “jim crow”. Beto says no.

Follow-up: do you think police brutality is an issue for African-Americans and should their rights be protected? Ted says all rights should protected, then tells another fib about Beto’s comments about police. Beto calls Ted on it.

Benny

Topic: National Anthem Kneeling, why isn’t it disrepectful? Beto repeats his speech from his appearance in East Texas.

Ted’s response: he reminds that the Dixiecrats were Democrats at one time. Ignoring nearly all of them left the Dem Party before the mid-60’s. Ted also talked about flag burning, which had nothing to do with the national anthem. Beto calls him on the misleading commentary and tangents.

Next topic: SCOTUS. Ted defends conservative judges and tries to pin Beto to Hillary Clinton as a radical. Beto turns around and shows extreme right judges he supported, then goes on to talk about how Kavanaugh isn’t likely to support voter and civil rights.

Hillary Clinton is a radical? I need more wine..

Benny

Next topic: Gun Laws and background checks. Beto brings up background checks and Parkland. Gun sense safety and gives anecodotes about AR-15 in medical facilities. AR-15 weapons of war belong on the battlefield, not in citizen’s hands. Ted says he was in FL and went to Parkland right away to talk to the students and parents. I don’t recall Ted did that. Hope Beto’s folks fact check. I think it is a lie.

Nope, Cruz never showed up at Parkland.

Benny

Next question: why is Ted so friendly with Trump and what does he say about the praise he heaps on Trump?

Ted responds about how his wife is pretty and great. But he chose to work with Trump on remarkable legislation such as tax cuts.

Beto says that Ted spent a lot of time away from the state and refuses to do a check on Trump.

OK. How did you get it to load? I copied that looooong link but it didn’t show up like that. Anyhoo, THNKS!

guns now. beto says teachers don’t want guns. talks about people who have lost children. “Thoughts and prayers are just not going to cut it anymore.”

“I’m sorry you don’t like thoughts and prayers.” Wants more armed police officers. Right. Making schools prisons sounds great.

Both sides got cheers. Beto’s sounded louder to me.

Benny

I’m watching the debate on C-SPAN.

polarbear4

Cruz lying about the “death tax” and family farmers again.

Benny

Ted is suddenly a libertarian and is for a debate on the legalization of marijuana?

Benny

I just checked, he’s against marijuana being legalized but he thinks it is up to the states.

polarbear4

9 years ago, Beto apparently advocated debating legalizing all drugs. Sounds terrible, although I believe it may have helped in some small countries? still, not good for Beto here now.

polarbear4

Shoot. I’m out to finish sorting the garage stuff into bags before it rains and i’m working tmrw too so won’t have time. Hearing it’s about health care now, i hope Beto tears it up!!!! Will read you all soon, i hope!

Sorry, I couldn’t resist.

polarbear4

hysterical. i told ya–Vorta! worse than, really.

polarbear4

Thanks all, so would all say that Beto came out on top? Since Cruz just lies, not sure these are a good thing. Beto needs some quick, firm comebacks, too. Shoulda hired LD.

Benny

Ted lied a lot, but as we know R’s don’t care. He will score points for pointing out how he worked with Trump for lower taxes, loosening regulations, etc.

Beto had a very good closing speech, however, he needed to shut the door by asking people for their vote. But they have two more debates.

polarbear4

Thanks. Closing out.

For some reason, this one resonated for me. But I’m feeling cranky, so..

Ted Cruz ad:

polarbear4

This.

magsview

The important fact, after perusing both threads, is that even on the Ted Cruz timeline, most tweets are pro-Beto. Twitter ain’t real life tho, but hopefully it’s a small sign at least!
