It is amusing to watch the throng of Democratic presidential nominees fight for who can be the furthest to the left. This may be a good ploy in the quest for strong primary finishes, but whoever comes out on top is in serious trouble come general election time. The democratic circus is playing now.
It is a well-known fact that most Americans are paying scant attention to the horde of presidential hopefuls currently grabbing brief headlines as they battle for supremacy in a crowded field. The upcoming primaries in early 2020 will separate the serious contenders with their strong finishes from the various wanna-bes who will say or do anything for media attention.
But seriously, when the average American begins to pay attention come party convention time in the summer of 2020, whoever wins the Democratic presidential nomination will have a lot to answer for with outrageous campaign promises and proposed policies.
For instance, the immigration policies of most Democratic hopefuls is far-fetched if not downright ridiculous. Their infighting to see who can gain the most minority votes in the primaries puts them way out in left field. Most general election voters do not see open borders as a serious answer to the ongoing border crisis.
It was amusing to see President Trump, with tongue-in-cheek, suggest shipping illegal aliens to sanctuary cities. It got just the anticipated reaction of outrage from most Democratic candidates who have basically described illegal immigrants as equal to U.S. citizens.
The whole country had to chuckle as the candidates who portray themselves as the compassionate saviors of illegals sputtered and recklessly condemned the president for such an idea. Why? Aren’t they the ones who want to dump these poor souls on our doorsteps as they hide behind their walled communities and armed guards?
The outrage will be well-documented in political ads come the general election to remind voters of just how hypocritical the so-called ‘progressives’ really are. These hungry-for-votes political hack windbags continue to ignore the overwhelming surge of illegal immigrants crossing our southern border.
These hysterical candidates steadfastly refuse to consider any measures that might alleviate the problem. They score political points campaigning for the elimination of ICE, who crack down on sex traffickers and drug dealers. If you object, you are automatically a ‘racist.’
One moron, Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ), whose claim to fame is being the former major of one of America’s most crime-ridden hell holes, Newark, decries Trump throwing “children into cages” on the border. Huh? Does anyone with an IQ bigger than the cost of a postage stamp believe that?
Booker also voted against a $1.37 billion border barrier as well as an additional $500 million for funding ICE. Yes, the “no” vote was simply a political gesture of the sort Booker, aka “Spartacus,” has become known for. It may get him the uninformed primary voters who walk around with torches and a rope searching for suspected racists under every rock, but come general election time (which he will never see), forget it.
Yes, there is an abundance of general election-losing ideas from the ‘progressives’ including the dead-from-the-start estimated $97 trillion New Green Deal, Medicare for everybody, death to the Electoral College, voting at 16-years-old, again, open borders to let everyone in, Puerto Rico as the 51st state. See the pattern? Democrats cannot win elections on their own merits, so let’s create a new base of morons so we can win every election.
Looks good with the primary’s great unwashed brain dead, but come November 2020, 43 states for Trump in a landslide.
Where are the Democratic Party adults to stop this suicide mission? They are hiding from the likes of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the 29-year-old freshman congresswoman who espouses nonsense you would slap your four-year-old for uttering. But she has the mob revved up for primary season. All they lack is a larger supply of Kleenex for the drool.
But ask Gallup responders whether they “personally worry” about illegal immigration. Seventy-eight percent say they do; only 21 percent say it does not concern them at all. But that doesn’t register with the Betos and Corys of the primary season. For them, the more ridiculous their ideas are, the more votes from the parent-basement dwelling children/adults they get. You know, the idiots who have never paid taxes or held a job, and who are anxious for taxpayer freebies.
Enjoy the democrat circus while you can. A year from now, the rabble-rousers will all be back in the asylum except one poor sucker who must carry the water of all the idiotic ideas that the others made very public.
Does anyone seriously think Donald Trump is shaking in his shoes as he views the political landscape? If so, give them a campaign button from millionaire Bernie the socialist.
