I thought I stated a thread on 2020 presidential candidates. Guess I messed it up.

From an article:

I wish I could say that the worst thing about John Hickenlooper’s CNN town hall on Wednesday night was the part where he talked about watching Deep Throat with his mom. The former governor of Colorado, who is one of roughly 173 declared candidates for the Democratic presidential nomination, explained that the porno-with-mom thing was not an accident. He said he knew that the movie was “naughty” but thought his mother might enjoy getting out of the house. Apparently after the infamous X-rated flick began she was “mortified.” That poor woman.

What can you say? There are hundreds of pics of Creepy Joe on the internet, invading women's space, sniffing hair, groping, kissing. The ones with the kids are especially disturbing. Obama sure knows how to pick 'em. Alex Jones was reporting on Biden's pervy activities a decade ago.

Biden's son Hunter landed a billion-dollar deal with the ChiComs when his dad was VP. Flew with him to China on Air Force Two and then left with a deal the likes of which the Rockefellers could never achieve. The Biden family may be as corrupt as the Clintons, though neither comes close to the Bushes. All of them are ChiCom lovers.

And Beto is in the news. The guy's fourth-generation Irish, but his father gave him an Hispanic nickname so that he could use it later in life to appeal to Hispanic voters. And now the press is claiming that his native language is Spanish. this is the same press that awarded itself Pulitzer Prizes for claiming Donald Trump was a Russian mole:

Associated Press Says Beto Spoke in 'His Native Spanish'

And let's not forget Beto's foray into poetry:

Oprah has already banked on Beto. She used her powerful Harpo Production Company to help get Obama elected, so at this early stage it looks as if Beto may be the chosen one.

It appears that the Democratic establishment is now going to give Joe Biden the Hillary Clinton treatment as they attempt to advance him to the nomination for president. Part of the treatment is to inflate his poll numbers and deflate Bernie Sanders'. Sanders has substantial turnouts at his rallies, but Biden can't draw flies, so the Democratic National Committee says he doesn't NEED to go to rallies because he has a double digit lead over the rest of the field. This is precisely what they did with Clinton.

So they're making the mobster Biden into the front-runner, which means we need to look at him more closely.

First, Joe kicked off his campaign with a lie. Everyone knows it's a lie, and a racially divisive lie. Standard for Democrats. A really sad campaign launch:
Basing your entire campaign on a LIE... Bold strategy Creepy Joe.

An example of Joe's incredible insight and gift for oratory:

And then there's climate change:

But Biden has his moments of racial empathy:

And Joe just can't seem to break his creepy habits:

Then there's his boy Hunter. Nothing to see there, move along:

The Leftists will definitely tweak the election process to try to get their candidate in, but is THIS the guy you want in the White House?

They had to work to get the field of Democratic hopefuls down to 20 for the debate(s). 7 didn't make the cut. And the 20 that were left...oh, man, what can you say? I did not see a spark of sanity anywhere during either debate. What the hell's happened to the Democrats?

My favorite part was the Dueling Spanjo skit. Such an insult to Hispanics. So embarrassing. I wished later that Pocahontas Warren had jumped in with a bit of Cherokee for the big punch line.

The second night, with the Main Event contenders, was truly horrifying. Those people think they're fit to lead the US, yet all of them value illegal immigrants (criminals) over law abiding US citizens.

The Democrats' strategy could be to deadlock the convention with the Twenty Loons and then have some savior step forward on the tenth ballot. Someone like Oprah. She's moonbat crazy (has her own religion) but compared to the people on that stage she seems downright normal. And we ALL love Oprah, don't we? If you don't, you're racist.

Joe Biden is gaffe-prone, which everyone knows. I don't think that his slips will make much difference this time around. You have so many outrageous things Trump has said, intentionally, so Biden's faux pas fade to insignificance. He could stumble for other reasons, reasons of more substance, of course.

Biden's been displaying signs of dementia for some time now. He was the favorite of the Democrat's election machine before the debate, but after his stammering performance there, the machine is pulling back. And the leftist propaganda organs are beginning to nip away at him. He's probably history. He should drop out of the race.

The most disturbing image from the debates was this one:

Image

The candidates were asked to raise their hands if they support free healthcare for illegal immigrants. Look at how eager they are to serve foreigners ahead of citizens. And if anything wins Trump re-election it will be that--the fact that these corporation-funded candidates want to spend American workers' tax money on freebies for illegals. At least Trump puts America and Americans first. Or he says he does. The Democratic side doesn't even try to hide its contempt for the American people.

We also saw Biden's hand go up late and rather tentatively when the moderator asked the question about healthcare for people not here legally. He knows that the Democrats competing for votes in the primaries are going much farther left on the issue than was the case when he served under Obama. Along with the general agreement on reducing crossing the border undocumented to a civil offense, this healthcare issue will position the Democratic nominee outside of the mainstream in the general election, which could well mean that Trump will win again.

Biden doesn't have dementia. That is just your way of character assassination. Trump has more markers of possible senility than Biden has. But it would be uniformed to say that Trump has dementia. Almost anyone of the age of these oldsters is going to display some congnitive decline. The job isn't for septugenarians.

I got the strong impression that Biden was not well prepared for the debate. He may still rescue his standing, but if he keeps showing up and falling short, we "move to the center" Dems will need a new standard bearer.

Some chance Mayor Pete will serve, or Beto, but right now Amy Klobuchar looks like the strongest candidate for that spot. I am left enough to be dissatisfied with several of her positions, but right now she looks to me to be as electable as Liz Warren, whose brilliance is unparalleled in my memory of candidates. I could see an Amy and Cory ticket pulling in the Blue Wall, especially since the Administration is trying hard to get pre-existing conditions off of medical insurance. 25% of American families. OMG.

I keep expecting Dear Leader to begin with the long pauses and other giveaways that Ronald Reagan displayed in the 1984 debates, but apparently the new guy has a long history of covering for complete ignorance by pivoting to some personal talking point, so now he just uses the same tactic when his brain spaces out.

I can't believe Kamala Harris chose busing, of all things, to use against Joe Biden. She is supposedly quite the strategist, politically, having learned from Willie Brown, but if she thinks she can pivot away from that one, she doesn't get America. And the irony is heavy, since it appears she could have let Joe Biden fall to pieces all on his own.

Biden. What a piece of work. After he got his ass handed to him in the debate he threatened his rivals:

Grab the Popcorn: Joe Biden Warns He Has Dirt on 2020 Democratic Rivals
pjmedia.com/trending/grab-the-popcorn-b ... ic-rivals/

And the other day I was watching a video that mentioned Biden:

Who Rigged The TWlN TOWERS...
youtube.com/watch?v=99mLPseOQ4A&fea ... e=youtu.be

Excellent video. And in the middle it mentioned that Joe Biden wrote the USA PATRIOT Act. The Patriot Act is probably the most abusive piece of legislation ever foisted on Americans, as far as loss of rights is concerned:

Joe Biden Admits He Wrote The Patriot Act In 1995!
newspunch.com/joe-biden-admits-he-wrote ... t-in-1995/

Biden wrote the Omnibus Counterterrorism Act of 1995, when he was a US Senator. He couldn't get it passed, but six years later, after 9/11, both Dems and Reps saw a chance to take a big bite out of our Bill of Rights, and they dusted off Biden's bill, changed the name and passed it. So Joe Biden is responsible for our loss of rights.

The only piece of legislation that Senator Biden was able to shepherd through congress to completion was The Law Enforcement Officers' Bill of Rights. Once it was signed into law, cops had greatly expanded rights. When a cop is involved in an incident where he might have done wrong, he now has the right to have a lawyer and a union representative at his side before being questioned. That's why so many police get off without punishment after shooting citizens. Thanks to Joe Biden. Biden then partnered up with Barry Soetoro (also known as Barack Obama), and together they did a bait and switch. A cop would shoot a black kid, and Barry would fly in to fan racial hatred in the community, then Biden's cop protections would get the shooter off.

I'm surprised that Obama picked racist ol' Joe, because Biden supported segregation pretty staunchly back in the day. Kamala Harris pointed this out during the debate, and she's now running around playing the part of an outraged African-American, even though, like her dad reminded her recently, she's from Jamaica and their family once owned slaves.

It looks as if the big dog, Biden, may be planning to bid us adieu:

And Trump has managed through skill or dumb luck to give the Democrats a new face. With his latest tweet storm he shoved the four junior House members known as "The Squad" to the forefront of the Democratic Party.

Image

These four were elected to represent their districts, not run national policy, yet they've thrust themselves onto the national stage. They may not make it to another two-year term. Alexandria Octasio-Cortez seems to be in serious trouble. The first thing she did in congress was to kill a deal that would have employed thousands back in her home district in New York. I think that was part of her "Green New Deal." A former bartender and junior congresswoman released a plan to save the planet which, if we don't adopt, will mean the end of humanity in 12 years. She said that. She's that insane. And she cost the home voters a bunch of jobs. Plus, she now has a serious opponent on the Republican side.

I like this woman. I think she could get elected in my district, which is wall to wall redneck.

So Cortez will soon be tending bar again, and one of the other Squad members may be deported. Ilhan Omar has serious problems, some of which are described in the 3-minute video below. Because of her anti-American rhetoric I wouldn't be surprised if the Department of Justice investigates her. And if any of the allegations in the video are proven to be true, then she could be deported:

I expect the Republicans will now keep shaking these anti-American Squad members at us, and any serious presidential contender on the Democratic side will be linked to them.

Too early to tell who will emerge from the Democrat's array of aspirants. I'm hoping for a woman. I always vote for women. I think that if at least 65% of elected officials were women the world would be a better place. Now I'm going to be battered by Hilary haters, which is fine, I'm no fan hers. I'm speaking generally.

I am actually a fan of Hilary, though I can list about 10 things I was dissatisfied with her about. The biggest was that she lost. I mean really, if you are going to rig debates and run dirty tricks about Bernie, the least you could do is find a way to kick the Big Narcissist in the nuts.

In general my dissatisfaction with her was for her trying to break the glass ceiling on her husband's coattails. How demeaning to women in politics. She was enough of a politician to get elected Senator from New York, but it was never from any magnetic attraction to voters. She never had the magic, she never had the fire in her belly, and it's no wonder she lost to the most unpopular candidate since George McGovern.

Which brings us to Kamala Harris. Her "hurting" message about busing was considered a great breakthrough for taking on Biden, but if she continues in that vein she is not only not going to get the nomination, she is going to blow what little advantage she got from raising a losing issue to position herself on the emotional left. Maybe she is hoping to inherit Bernie's voters, I don't know. But if she doesn't follow with more substance in the next debates, look for a sag.

Liz Warren is brilliant, as I said. She has gone after issues on substance that a lot of people didn't even realize mattered. We could count on her to fix problems that have been simmering for 20 to 40 years. Her innovative approaches, like insisting that companies wanting to benefit from U.S. government research make commitments to do the production here are the sort of thing that the Bill Clinton administration could really have used, instead of his little shuffle for the bond markets whenever anybody's feathers got ruffled.

At the same time she has, in my view, taken too many positions that are too far to the left. I don't think for a minute that she sounds loony. In fact she can convince people that Medicare for All is a great healthcare breakthrough even when they started out thinking that was too goofy to consider. But she doesn't have the ability to connect to working people that Bill Clinton, Barack Obama and Bernie Sanders had/have. She could do herself a lot of good by soft-pedaling the plans for a while - that point has been made and nobody really doubts her wonkiness credentials. Instead she needs a narrative about opportunity and giving people a chance. I heard hints of it in the first debate. But she is still sounding better on a critique of the lopsided, rigged economy than on understanding where ordinary people are coming from, what are their aspirations and discouragements.

Since I want appeal for the center, my hopes for a woman candidate are more or less resting on Amy Klobuchar. She did a good job of making her main appeals in the first debate, but left a lot of people wondering how she is any different. Okay, she can win in Red districts, but how does that work, exactly? What is the appeal? Saying "common sense" is still generalities. It leaves me wondering if she has the fire that Harris and Warren have. Is she just hoping Biden will melt away and she will inherit the center? I don't think it works that way, when you don't start out as a national figure and there are so many people saying so many things. A coherent narrative that really sells moderation would do her worlds of good, but she needs advisers like Mayor Pete and Kamala Harris has, to really ring any of those chimes. I would advise her to read David Brooks religiously, and adopt his themes with her own adaptations.

So here's the deal. I think a woman candidate can win, but not by running as a woman. Just like Obama benefited from lots of black voters proud of his ethnicity, but did not ever ask for such, any woman candidate who is going to win will have to appeal just the same way any male candidate does. I am not saying she has to lose her individuality or personality, only that she has the same burdens of connecting with people, unifying the message, and engaging with substance. Frankly I don't think any of the Dem candidates are scoring that hat trick as of yet. The closest is Sanders. The good news is that they will be facing the most unpopular candidate since Barry Goldwater.
