Much is being made about Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders fighting each other over a remark that Bernie may or may not have made in which he said a woman cannot beat Donald Trump.
Neither Warren nor Bernie are being helped by their MMA (Mixed Mouthfuls of Attacks) bouts. They are taking attention away from the crooked deals and personal misbehavior of Hunter Biden and his father’s role in the firing of a Ukrainian prosecutor investigating corruption at Burisma Holdings, the gas company that made his son a board member. The winner of the Warren-Sanders bouts is … Joe Biden.
Then there are the other Democratic candidates
Pete Buttigieg got off to a roaring start, but Mayor Pete’s engines flamed out before he could land. Or just maybe, the anti-bias Democrats are not ready to nominate a gay man. He could still be chosen as VP for the wining candidate.
Andrew Yang isn’t getting anywhere with his signature policy of ‘universal basic income.’ Or just maybe the anti-bias Democrat believe a Chinaman should be doing their laundry, not running the country.
Amy Klobuchar is the most credible of all the Democratic candidates but maybe because they can’t pronounce her name, she’s not getting the support she needs. Or just maybe Bernie was right when he allegedly said a woman cannot beat Donald Trump. She could still be chosen as a VP for the winn9ing candidate.
Tulsi Gabbard, an Iraq war veteran, wants to legalize marijuana and end wars of regime change. But Hillary Clinton accused her of being a Russian “asset.” Tulsi in turn denounced Clinton as “queen of warmongers, embodiment of corruption, and personification of the rot that has sickened the Democratic Party.” Tulsi is exactly right, but you do not attack the queen of the Democratic party.
Tom Steyer, a billionaire, has bored Democratic voters with his single ‘Dump Trump’ message. They’ve shouted that ever since January 2017. His most notable act of late has been his effort to get out of between Warren and Sanders in their MMA bout.
Michael Bloomberg, another billionaire and former mayor of NY, has spent $100 million on his national campaign. I don’t watch much of my local TV channels, but every day I see two or more of his campaign commercials. He’s counting heavily on March 3rd’s Super Tuesday. Michael has been running to black groups apologizing for his “stop and frisk” police tactics although that was one of NYPD’s most successful crime fighting tools. On Super Tuesday he’ll find out that Southerners don’t cotton to a Yankee from New York City … Quick, git a rope!
There are a slew of other Democratic candidates still running, but they can only count on the votes of their relatives and friends.
And then there is the graveyard of Democratic candidates
Cory Booker sounded presidential, but it looks like even the Democrats were not ready for another Obama. And his supporters claim he was the victim of racism.
Julian Castro couldn’t get his fellow Latinos off their asses to support him. And the poor bastard was all but ignored by the debate moderators. However, he could still be chosen as VP for the winning candidate.
Kamala Harris learned a hard lesson. Being a winner in California does not translate to the national scene. Or just maybe the anti-bias Democrats felt the country was not ready for the first black woman president. Then again, her supporters claim she was the victim of racism.
Mayor Bill de Blasio exposed himself as a NY nut job. The Sandinista-loving Mayor could only count on the support of his relatives and friends.
Kirsten Gillibrand wanted to “Defeat President Trump, flip the Senate and elect women up and down the ballot,” but even the women did not support her.
And then there was Crazy Beto O’Rourke. His answer to mass shootings was to scream like a Banshee: “Hell, yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47. We’re not going to allow it to be used against our fellow Americans anymore.” The fool did not take into consideration that many Democrats own those guns. It was adios Beto.
Things are really going downhill in our nation when Democrats, as in the case of Cory Booker and Kamala Harris, are accusing each other of racism.
So, where does that leave us?
In 2016, it was Trump vs. Crooked Hillary. In 2020, it looks like it will be Trump vs. Crooked Hunter’s father. Biden will promise to restore all Obama acts undone by Trump and to make nice with the Ayatollahs again. Trump will boast about “Promises Made, Promises Kept” and promise to “Keep America Great.”
