DNC Chair: All GOP candidates are ‘the same’

Published

on

Whether it’s Rick Perry, Mitt Romney, or even Hermain Cain, it doesn’t matter who wins the Republican presidential nomination, according to the Democratic National Committee chair.

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz appeared in a debate with RNC counterpart Reince Priebus on Face The Nation Sunday morning. And the Florida congressman expressed her thoughts of there being no stark difference in any of the GOP candidates from one another.

“It doesn’t much matter which one of the Republicans gets nominated because they’re all the same,” Schultz said. “They are all embracing and bear-hugging the Tea Party. Moving to the right, they can’t move to the right far enough.”

She added: “They all favor privatizing Social Security, which would pull the safety net out from under our seniors, and favor ending Medicare as we know it. They all are wrong on immigration reform when it comes to Hispanics in the states.”

As expected, Priebus tried to put a different spin on it, even with rumors of New Jersey governor Chris Christie possibly joining the race thanks to many in the party not impressed with their current crop of candidates.

“Look, I’m happy with the field. I think it’s a great field,” he said. “Is there a time through a nomination process technically to still get in? Sure there is.”

As expected, the president ranted, lied, and engaged in the raucous attacks that are central to his connection with Republican voters. Some of it was actually just sad, such as his continued obsession with Hillary Clinton.

Here are seven of the wildest, disturbing and pathetic moments from the rally:

British PM candidates clash over Brexit as Boris Johnson skips debate

Published

on

Candidates to become Britain's next prime minister clashed over Brexit strategy at their first debate on Sunday but the frontrunner, Boris Johnson, dodged the confrontation.

The 90-minute debate on Channel 4 featured the five remaining candidates and an empty podium for Johnson, the gaffe-prone former foreign secretary and former mayor of London.

In sometimes ill-tempered exchanges, four of the five candidates said they would seek to renegotiate the draft Brexit divorce deal agreed with Brussels even though EU leaders have repeatedly ruled this out.
