I wish it were so…..that the governed lead, that would be us the voter, but sadly it is a pipe dream with no footing in reality…..
What can we the governed have to look forward to between now and the 2020 election? An infrastructure plan? NO! Health care for Americans? NO! Equal pay perhaps? NO!
The truth is the we have NOTHING to look forward to for this country. NOTHING will get done…..NOTHING but theatrics, fantasy, obstruction and lies……all the things that we have come to look for from this president…..and the Congress.
2020….the Dems are as usual shooting themselves in the foot….23 candidates? Seriously?
Do not believe the hype the politeness of the candidates there is NOTHING advantageous about 20+ candidates.
This is the first mistake.
The second is not having an adequate message, as usual…..their message is all over the place.
The older Dem Americans over 45 are all for Biden….they were the same for Hillary and look what that gave this country. The media needs to STOP breaking it down to the minute numbers…I realize why they are doing this failed policy….they have lots of time per hour to fill and they will do so with all the speculation they can muster.
The MSM is pushing Biden hard and some are seeing him as the Bob Dole of the 21st century…….
The 2020 Democratic presidential candidate field seems to grow by the day, increasing the chances that someone unexpected could emerge from the pack.
But, at the moment, the most conventional candidate is ahead in the early polls. That would be former Vice President Joe Biden.
Historically speaking, though, there isn’t much recent precedent for someone like Biden to win the presidency, even if he does snag the party’s nomination, presidential biographer Jon Meacham Told NBC’s Chuck Todd on Sunday’s edition of Meet the Press. Meacham, who has written books about Franklin Roosevelt, Andrew Jackson, Thomas Jefferson, and George H.W. Bush, said that when looking at Democrats who have been elected to the Oval Office in the post-World War II era, most of them have been younger, more innovative forces.
Then there is the joke of party politics……the biggest voting group are independents….a cowards way out (my feeling only)…….
American Party politics would be a complete farce if the consequences weren’t so grave. Were either of the dominant Parties to achieve 100% consensus on any issue, it would represent the views of about 18%* of eligible voters. And while a diversity of views would represent social vitality in a functioning democracy, in the winner-take-all American system, it represents continued rule by the oligarchs.
Voters need to think back over the life of their voting……Biden is nothing about change…he will be the same as all other Dems in the past 50 years…..long on hot air and short on action and a warm embrace of corporate handlers.
Stop letting the media pick your candidate.
