Joe Biden has been a Washington politician for nearly 50 years. His racist statements are legendary, as are his habitual inappropriate touching and sniffing of women and young girls. His corruption has made him and his family incredibly wealthy, earning millions and millions of dollars by selling influence to foreign interests. He is clearly suffering from rapidly advancing dementia, and at times seems to lose track of where he is.
Given the 22 candidates in the Democrat primary, I suspect that most Republicans would have selected Biden as the easiest to beat in the general election, with maybe two to three exceptions. Kamala Harris slept her way into politics, then used ruthless politics to work her way into national prominence. She exudes the warmth of Hillary Clinton and the ethics of, well, Hillary Clinton.
I only bring all this up to point out that this team of Biden and Harris are going to win around half the vote in the upcoming election. This says a lot about today’s Democratic Party, and it says even more about today’s Democrat voters. I understand that Donald Trump is a hard guy to like. But it’s hard to argue that until COVID, America was doing extremely well under his leadership. Anyone who looks at this situation and decides to vote for Biden/Harris, well, that is simply extraordinary. And tens of millions of Americans are about to do exactly that. Which brings a few questions to my mind:
- Who could the Democratic Party possibly nominate who would not get about half the vote in a presidential election? The mind boggles.
- Why did Bernie Sanders withdraw from the race when he did?
- Who selected Kamala Harris?
- Is it possible that the Democrats intend to replace Biden as their presidential nominee before the election?
- Are there any Democrat voters out there, looking at their presidential ticket and thinking, “Oh heavens no…?”
If we have mail-in ballots in this election, it doesn’t matter who either party nominates – the Democrats will win, and win big.
But without mail-in ballots, I just can’t imagine Biden/Harris winning more than 10-15 states. But again, I’ll bet they will, somehow.
American politics – it’s bonkers right now.Published in
