    President Obama is an important tool in this fight. I sure hope he can beat the Republicans.

    Is this it ? We had an intelligent man with compassion and empathy and we're going to use him.... and the 18 others on the path with him are: __________________ . President Obama tried hard in '16 also. We lost. We should identify other key figures to assist. Biden is great but we need motivation to fuel a firm resistance. Mr. Perez, perhaps you could make a list of 80 key individuals and call everyone of them. We need a strong step. Will we effectively express the importance of voting and motivation towards making a change ? Election is in about 60 days. Many should be working around the clock.

    Hopeful but skeptical.

    Dock indeed a broken record; also Perez does not run for to be elected; so just words; no deeds (yet) . People are forgetting "history" in this country; ask Nixon and Reagan how that worked. As long as this remains one of the most corrupt countries of the world; things will not change with "words" alone. "Banana republics" don't change overnight.

    Perez set the tone. The solution to wages and health care are going to require a new concept in government. It starts with "we the people" and will require a new appreciation for human rights. I have been around some very successful companies that valued and appreciated employees. Companies will be valued for earnings and not IPOs.

    No more "Companies worth billions when they IPO'd went to zero. ... Of all the Kings of the Dot Com Bubble, Tuzman has probably fallen farther than most. (We ...

    Money will have to get a job.

    Chet, I worked for companies who did appreciate me and did give me an great " social package" including life insurance and 401K as well lots of other "money" above my salary related to the job I had. Thus it totally depends of for whom you work. Lots of companies here, look only out for what the CEO can "steal" for himself; that is the American way. I've always learned that an happy employee, works harder and better. I was lucky that I worked for some of those companies; I also worked a while for an company which was run by an corrupt unqualified bunch; which company went bankrupt after a while; no wonder. Thus Chet a lot has to do with the culture in any company on how they treat their employee's.

    One good sentence came from Obama's lips, he stated the Koch money swayed elections, but he left out citizens united and PAC's. In my state, the Koch Bros. outspent democrats at nearly a 3:1 ratio.

    Former president Barack Obama delivered a lacerating critique of President Trump in his debut on the 2020 campaign trail Wednesday, denouncing his successor’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic and ridiculing him for being unable to even “protect himself” from covid-19.

    Speaking at a drive-in rally for Joe Biden in South Philadelphia, Obama attacked Trump on a wide range of issues — including his personal tax payments, embrace of conspiracy theories, handling of the economy and efforts to gut the Affordable Care Act — as he implored Democrats to avoid complacency and turn out at the polls.

    With less than two weeks left before Election Day, Obama’s appearance in a state Trump won in 2016 highlighted the importance of Pennsylvania’s 20 electoral votes, which both campaigns have viewed as a must-win on a path to the White House. A day earlier, Trump delivered remarks at a rally in Erie, Pa., in one of three western counties that had voted for Obama in 2008 and 2012 but backed Trump four years ago.

    “I get this president wants full credit for the economy he inherited and zero blame for the pandemic he ignored,” Obama said, citing the more than 220,000 Americans who have died of the novel coronavirus. “But you know what? The job doesn’t work that way. Tweeting at the television doesn’t fix things. Making stuff up doesn’t make people’s lives better. You’ve got to have a plan.”

    The format of the event, in which supporters remained in their vehicles to maintain social distancing, offered a stark reminder of the nation’s health crisis. As Obama spoke, supporters could be heard cheering but also honking their horns in support.

    The scene was a contrast to Trump’s rallies, in which thousands of supporters huddle closely on airport tarmacs for the president’s remarks. Many have eschewed masks, as Trump has denounced Democratic governors and mayors for maintaining pandemic restrictions on businesses.

    I wonder if it has any effect this late in the game; sure Obama said all the right things but Trump and his cronies don't care . Also Schumer came kind of late with an weak "boycott" on the horrible judge appointment. They should have done so from the start. The GOP moved the "vote" to next week in de Senate.

    According to the news this has never happened before in the history of this "island" that such an election takes place an week before an "election". It is absolutely ridiculous and should be stopped with whatever means. Again the Dem's showed their sleepy weak attitude. Sick country for sure.

    Amount of voters who will watch the debate as "undecideds" 6%. Most have decided and many have voted. The debate will hopefully be enjoyable and hopefully the loud buffoon doesn't spend the entire night yelling about Biden's children and the fabricated scam of the day. Strong night by Joe. Strong night for America.

    The thing what worries me the most is that the "evangelical" bitch gets elected. How is such possible a week ahead of the elections? Are they "crazy" here? This never has happened in this country, except the GOP pulled an dirty one on the Dem's and Obama before the election of Trump. Why can't the Dem's do the same? There is much more at stake then at that time. Schumer says he's going to boycott it this time; however McConnell just walks right over him. All of this shows that the Dem's have no "backbone" and everything is not done with real action but only with "words". What if the Dem's "win", then they are stuck with this "bitch" for years to come. Shaking my old tired head.
