2020 Democrats

Bernie Sanders’ Socialist Platform Raises $6 Million Crushes Other Democrats

Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders raised $6 million in the first 24 hours after he announced his campaign for President. These donors are not attracted by his charismatic good looks – which are totally absent – nor are they attracted by his oratorical skills, again absent, what they are attracted to are his Socialist policies and his record of fighting for them.

Can Any Of These Democrat Goofs Beat Trump?

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

The way the states are polarized means that any zombie Dem is going to get a ton of electoral votes. California will vote for whatever clown the donkeys nominate as part of its “hit bottom/keep digging” program. New York, which recently passed legislation to protect its citizens from the threat of viable infants, will clearly choose whichever pinko the party picks. But in the battleground states, will these glorified hamsters play? Nope. Trump doesn’t need to do much to grab the vital center and win except to stand there saying, “Socialism? Really?”

The Mythologies of ‘Joe Being Joe’ Biden

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

The folksy Biden is hardly the sober and judicious alternative to a supposedly reckless Donald Trump. In many ways, Biden has been far wilder in his speech and decorum — despite nearly a half-century in politics. Could a Biden campaign withstand #MeToo-era scrutiny? Biden’s gaffes are often brushed off as examples of “Joe being Joe,” but Biden has long displayed the sort of sloppy, gross, and politically incorrect behavior that progressives routinely and ironically attribute to the current president.

The Green New Deal is a Suicide Note for Democrats

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

In a presidential election, the "out" party candidate usually has an advantage. No record to defend. He or she can choose the terrain on which to attack the incumbent, who has a four-year record. Rarely does an out party present a fixed and stationary target as exposed as this, as out-of the-mainstream as this, as vulnerable as this. The only explanation for the endorsement of the Green New Deal by candidates with a prospect of winning the Democratic nomination is that they are so fearful of Ocasio-Cortez and the left for whom she speaks that they must endorse her plan.

The Fauxcahontas Apology Tour

Senator Elizabeth Warren’s early dive into identity politics and racial preferences in hiring has guaranteed that her 2020 presidential campaign will become an agonizing genealogy project and provide another example of Trump’s awesome power to make Democrats do dumb stuff.

Dems Deny Economic Boom

Betsy McCaughey, The American Spectator

What’s not to like? Yet Democratic pols would rather whine than deal with reality. Presidential hopeful Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) rants that “the economy is not working for working people.” Huh? Senator Cory Booker, who made his run for the White House official last week, claims the nation needs to change course so “parents can put food on the table” and “no one is left behind.” Dems won’t admit the inconvenient truth that the economic boom is benefitting working people. We’re in an increasingly worker-friendly environment.
