The real question is, are any of them electable?
I still expect Warren to be the nominee but she has demonstrated what a healthy dose of facts can do to a candidate. She was riding high until the voters discovered the cost of her promises. Apparently some of her supporters like her ideas only until they learn what they have to give up to get the promise.
Can the Dems field a candidate capable of beating Trump on their own merits? Set aside the fact that Trump is his own worst enemy at times. Assume he doesn’t make any earth shattering blunders between now and then. Which of the Dems on the stage can beat him heads up?
Keep in mind a very alarming (to Dems) set of recent polls. 3 major services place Trump’s approval rating with black voters at about 33%. Literally double the number that voted for him in 2016. Independent support for Impeachment has dropped to about 42%, down from over 50%.
The Dems have a very hard road ahead.
When radicalism succeeds big things happen. USSR. Nazi Germany. China. NK. Venezuela. Spain under Franco. I suppose it depends on how you define success.
When it falls short we get Antifa, la Raza, the KKK. Still radical, still violent, still insane.
So, whatbaoutism is OK on this topic? Well then, let’s discuss Obama’s abuse of power in re DACA.
Hmmm. Looked very much like a “what about”.
And despite all that most NATO members have dramatically increased their efforts to meet financial targets.
Every POTUS since Clinton tried and failed, but the clown succeeded.
Can there be any excuse that justifies Bloomberg abandoning the SPJ Code of Ethics? Or are you going to continue your classic deflections? Continue the what-aboutisms you forbid other to use?
Why did he run? Didn’t his friends and advisers warn him? So much baggage, an aging moderate base.
Its not in the cards. Unless the convention goes to a brokered event, and even then it is unlikely they would choose Joe.
The similarities to the current situation are…a stretch, at best. The actual evidence against Buchanan was substantial, provable and extensive. A far cry from the parade of I believe/I think/I assumed witness we have been graced with.
There is also the matter of the 115-45 vote to convene that Committee. Bipartisan? Oh yeah.
But how do you feel about allowing Antifa, the anarchists who violently disrupt economic summits, etc, etc.
If you want to censor groups you need to set some fixed public rules and apply them evenly across the board and across the world.
