Democrats falling by the wayside

Postby John Q. Public » Sat Feb 09, 2019 11:24 am

So, we have the best option in Virginia looking like it's one of the two guys who "only" wore blackface makeup, Elizabeth Warren formally announcing she's running for president after she said "doesn't everybody do that?" or whatever it was about claiming to be "American Indian" on her Texas Bar application (and other places) and former aides saying that Amy Klobuchar is as horrible a person to work for as Donald is. Who's next? Geez!

It's still early but having so many people throwing their hats in the ring isn't going to be any better for Democrats than it was for Republicans in 2016 - and I don't think either Warren or a person whose name people can't figure out how to pronounce are good candidates - so it's probably better if some of them crash and burn early on, but c'mon. This is turning into a circus before it even gets started.

And then there's the national party as much as saying they specifically want a female candidate, which is just as wrong-headed as saying that they don't want a woman or a minority. And they seem to be determined to run a Progressive instead of somebody with broader appeal. Just about anybody is better than Trump but I'm starting to wonder by how much.

Elizabeth Warren claiming to be a Native American is the 2020 version of Hillary's email. It is the unforgivable crime and the moral justification for ignoring, justifying and excusing the documented lies and other behaviors of Trump. Only two people out the self righteous indignation of the Trump cult, Warren and AOC.

Only 5 states matter - Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Florida. Whoever wins three of those will win the election. Anyone who the Republicans could target as a "socialist" couldn't do that, so Warren should be a non-starter and I even have my doubts about Harris, although she could possibly make up for it by getting flaky black voters in North Carolina up out of their La-Z-Boys. Warren's a valuable soldier, but as a presidential candidate I doubt she'll get beyond Iowa.

Kamala is the hardest person for Trump to attack without going all in on race and gender.

Right now I'm leaning toward Biden or Booker as the best candidates. Biden because he's moderate and familiar, Booker because he's fairly moderate and he's the best communicator of any of them, by far. But he might have some baggage from his past.

But I picked Rubio and Bernie at this point last time, so what do I know.

Didnt take long


Debate going on if Trump is mocking Warren and the Trail of Tears. Then I though about it a little bit more... Maybe Trump has it right, it's time to stop pretending that some folks actually give a damn about what happened to the Cherokee and our leaders of the day did what they had to do.

To his credit, I don't think he's bright enough to make the connection.
