Rep. Tim Ryan, D-Ohio, caused a stir on Tuesday night before the Democratic Debate even began.

Ryan was the only one of the 10 candidates on stage in Detroit not to put his hand over his heart during the national anthem.

The sad part is that non one's surprised by stuff like this anymore...People used to be aghast, but now it's mainstream...

Question - I didn't see the debate (at work)...Did any moderator call him on it?...

How difficult is it to place your hand over your heart to show respect for your country?

Bernie came off flustered and quite frankly....angry.

Reparations bill? What a freaking joke. Just who exactly is that going to cover, and why?
Insanity.

Most of the clips I've seen made it appear like they were more concerned about jabs toward Trump and not enough about their proposed policies.
Lots of anger.

That's because they don't have any common sense policies they can tout other than huge government giveaways and their willingness to bankrupt the nation to pay for illegal immigrants.

The NFL players show of disrespect for the flag and the nation cost the league around 10% of its TV viewership. But for a Democrat candidate it enhances their credibility with radicals currently in control of the party.

I watched about 2/3 of the debate. On healthcare neither Warren nor Sanders had a good answer for how they were going to persuade voters to give up private insurance or deal with the devastation caused by mandating Medicare reimbursement rates. The less popular candidates had a field day with the pie in the sky Medicare for all proposal.

The government forced me into 3 years of slavery. It was called military service. I'm getting me some of those reparations.

I'd like to have some of that respect to, but I'm not expecting much.

They have no policies, proposed or otherwise.

It's been 3 years of nothing but Trump bad. And they expect that and free stuff for everyone, even illegals, to make them winners in 2020.

I don't understand Medicare for all. What I know is that I paid thousands/year for decades in the vain hope that I might live long enough to get something back. But I don't think that's what the democrats are talking about.
