I agree. I also like your notion of Biden asking Romney if he would like to be on his ticket. I have thought about that before however that might be too much for the rest of his party. Plus I don't see Biden as being that smart.



Immediately after he voted for impeachment, I had a stunning thought... the Dems dropped the ball several months ago. Instead of trying to finagle Bloomberg into the race, when they recognized that they could well end up with a candidate radical enough to win their primary but too radical to win the general, they should have met with Romney and asked him to switch parties and enter the fray as an actual candidate. Unlike Bloomberg, Mitt *can* debate. Unlike Biden/Sanders/Warren, Mitt doesn't present himself like he's in his 70s. Unlike Butigieg and Kobluchar, Mitt has extensive experience governing. Add to all of that the chops he has to run as what would be widely considered an "old school liberal" platform (Romneycare, never-Trumper, socially liberal by boomer standards while retaining the fiscal conservatism paleoliberals used to embrace.) Mitt Romney as the Dem candidate for POTUS absolutely would have sent a shiver up my spine as a Trump supporter. Embracing him would have meant the Dems would have spat in the faces of the "not even likely to vote" group of malcontents that ride or die with Sanders, AOC, and the socialist wing of their party, BUT history proves that as time passes and the majority of those youths start recognizing the cost of paying taxes, raising families, having real world responsibilities, their positions soften and they drift more centrist by Dem standards. In other words, whoever gets voted in today will likely not be radical enough for those who replace today's young radicals while being viewed as perhaps too radical by the folks embracing those values today. The Left has to cater to the center or their party will forever ride a wave of internal strife and they'll keep losing more often then they win. The GOP does not have this problem, we have the opposite issue... if things are allowed to change too quickly, we backlash against whoever in the GOP allowed those changes to happen. By and large we are a monolithic legion that want the same general thing as Republicans who came before us want: tradition without changes.

Interesting.


What if Bernie does pick Tulsi and then Biden picks Warren?


Then whomever is the primary winner will still lose in the general.

Democrats have the mindset that all women will vote for someone because of their genitalia.

Worked wonders for them in 2016, right?

If Bernie is not fighting for Tulsi to be on the debate stage with him....he isn't considering her for VP that much is sure, but he should be doing that.

So there something that I read recently that surprised me, the Democrats are running a contested primary, it looks like they will shut out Gabbard for the debates, ....but to what end ?


WOW..you were spot-on with this prediction, Blue_Jay33.

If the Democratic ticket doesn't have a woman, this would be a lock for Trump to win.

Nothing that I can see ... is gonna stop the Trump Train. There is no credible opposition.

Gabbard is a nobody. She's a junior field grade officer who's not even active duty. She's got a streak of gray in her hair. And, she surfs.

Smells like a narcissist too.

Does that make me half right ?



Don’t get me wrong. My original post was tongue-in-cheek .

Every since I’ve been online with the exception of here.

The Jewish people have I hate to say it .

Unjustly get blamed for just about everything .

911 it was the Joooooooooos !!! (

Fight back against Hamas the evil jooooooooos !!!

There’s a poster from Ukraine on another site. The guy claimed jewish neo-Nazis were running the country (beat that oxymoron ) lol

Calling Bernie and Joe Zionists might be a good strategy .

The young base of the Democratic Party hates Zionism at least as much is they hate us .

So don’t we fight by their rules . “Zionist Zionist Zionist” !!!

Make up stories, tell lies, make false accusations .

But here’s the best when the liberal media tries to push back. Label them as Zionist .

It could be our racist card .

That replies half funny but half not .

Most of their base is running purely on emotion .

The Democratic party used that against .

Why don’t we throw the dog crap back in their yard ?

All narcissism aside she's a radical Marxist shill who supports gun confiscation, abortion, and UN agenda 2030 AKA communism. She's also got solid connections to a Hare Krishna type cult called the "Science of Identity Foundation", of which all mention has been thoroughly scrubbed from the interwebs, placing her in a solid 3rd place behind Obama and Hillsbury for the "just how desperate am I to hide my past..." trophy...

The fact that she is a former CFR member is particularly damning in my eyes. I'm sure there are individuals in the CFR who are more or less innocent, but you judge a tree by its fruit and the CFRs fruit smells JUST like swamp creature to me. I wouldn't even THINK of supporting someone who would sit at the same table as people like Soros, the Clinton's, Obama, Brzezinski, Rockefeller, Kissinger, Rupert Murdoch, etc...

You left nothing for me to pick at in your reply. It is a solid assessment.
I admit to have been holding hopes that there was enough intelligence hidden away in the Democrat Party that they might have come up with some form of viable alternative to offer the American people other than business as usual after business as usual got tossed in their face by Trump supporters in 16. Reaching across to Romney could have demonstrated that intelligence. Hell, dealing respectively with each other in front of the American people during the primaries might have as well in stead of gibbering and arm flailing like a pack of baboons. Alas.
