Rules, smules.

The DNC doesn’t care about rules.

The DNC has been changing their rules in this primary season whenever it suits their agenda.

They changed the rules to allow Mike Bloomberg to participate in the Nevada debate when they thought that Joe Biden was toast. But when Bloomberg was ripped to shreds by Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) over NDAs he had signed with female employees and Joe Biden was able to convincingly win in South Carolina, the DNC went back to their original plan, everyone coalesce around Joe Biden.

Peter Buttigieg and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) dropped out before Super Tuesday and Warren dropped out after it.

That left only Biden and Sanders as viable candidates for the nomination, with Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) still in with a few delegates, but not mathematically viable. But because she got delegates, she qualified for the next debate. So once again, rules smules, the DNC changed them again, ensuring that Gabbard would be blocked out.

So Democrats were all in bemoaning alleged sexism against Warren not doing better and having to drop out, but then they change their own rules to obviously block out Gabbard.


From Daily Caller:

According to the Democratic National Committee, the next debate — which is all but certain to be a head-to-head matchup between Sanders and Biden — will allow both candidates to be seated and take audience questions. This would be a dramatic change from the previous debates, during which the candidates faced questions from the moderators and stood behind lecterns for several hours.

“The DNC has changed the format for the next debate, where Joe Biden would have had to stand at a lectern for two hours and answer questions from professional moderators, to one where both men will be seated and answer questions from the audience,” tweeted Common Dreams senior editor and writer Eoin Higgins.

Nope, not at all because of issues with Biden which will become glaringly more obvious in one-on-one debate format. This is more a town hall format. Can we count on CNN giving Biden the questions in advance then?


Top Sanders aide Jeff Weaver questioned the change, “Why does Joe Biden not want to stand toe-to-toe with Sen. Sanders on the debate stage March 15 and have an opportunity to defend his record and articulate his vision for the future?”

The Biden people taunted the Sanders people saying folks preaching revolution shouldn’t be opposed to “a little change.”

DNC spokeswoman Xochitl Hinojosa claimed that it allowed candidates the ability to provide longer responses and that it allowed for undecided voters to question the candidates.

Uh huh, sure. And if you believe that, I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you.

Be prepared for the coddling of Biden until he gets the nomination.
