Nominating and electing a 77 year old man who will be 81 years old when it's time for re-election is not long term thinking. In 2024, Republicans will have the anti-incumbent momentum and likely, a younger and more energetic candidate. As bad as things are now, they could be even worse under a Repub (Don Jr. or Ivanka?) in 2025.
Wonder what many of the political figures out there have on their wish list for Santa? Wonder no more!
So, here we are coming to the end of a pretty unbelievable year. A reality show host is on the verge of becoming a major party's nominee for President, racist police forces from the 1950's keep coming through wormholes...
Something struck me this morning, thinking about what's looming on the horizon tomorrow for the Democrats with this ginormous chinwag session that's about to take place at Blair House. Trust me ... the world will be watching. Well, at least...
There is nothing in our political or governmental lexicon to address an illegitimate presidency, probably because the framers of the Constitution neve envisioned that happening.
As the cliche goes, the definition of insanity is doing something over and over again and expecting a different result. It's also been the practice of Democratic Party establishment, on and off for many years.
The Democratic nominee for President in 2020 should consider a "New Frontier"-type campaign, not only because it is a proven path to success but because, as President Kennedy said about the fight for racial equality, "It is the right thing to do."
Aside from inspiring most reasonable people to want to slap them silly with a live, wriggling salmon, these Depressocrats need to be called out for their negative contributions to society.
This wasn't the straw that broke the camel's back, it was a two ton girder of betrayal and abuse of power that squashed the camel flat. The American people, were so outraged that Trump's continued freedom to destroy our democracy unfettered and the status quo that Speaker Nancy Pelosi has tried to sustain to avoid impeachment, were no longer acceptable.
Ivanka Trump will be heading up the #JustMe movement which will be dedicated to people having a safe space to unite and share their stories about the abuse that Donald Trump has suffered.
