Jig Bohnson on why Kamala Harris won’t be president:

Prole and even middle class black women do not like halfies with the good hair. “Do not like” does not come close to capturing the level of resentment there. In fact, it is probably even worse to be, like Harris, an exotic-ish halfie with the good hair than if she were just a corn fed Halle Barry type. Now at least Harris is married to a nerdy white guy instead of “taking” a high status black male, but on the other hand he is an investment banking nerdy white guy, so I’m sure there are photos of Harris living it up on jet skis or whatever, in a bikini with her golden brown skin and straight hair.

Because of gerrymandering and the stubborn refusal of non-blacks to live around blacks if they can help it, the Democrat bench has few authentically black blacks on deck for the national batter’s box. This contrasts sharply to the congressional level, where many heavily black urban districts send authentically black blacks to DC. Emmanuel Cleaver can’t win a statewide election in Missouri just as assuredly as he can’t lose a reelection bid in Missouri’s 5th.

When the prep-school halfrican Obama tried to challenge the authentically black Bobby Rush for a congressional seat in 2000, he got crushed because southside blacks wouldn’t vote for a mulatto from Harvard over a former Black Panther. But when Obama ran against Hillary Clinton in 2008, he utterly dominated the black vote, 85%-15%, because he was the blackest thing on offer.

Barring a Stacy Abrams’ surprise candidacy, so it will be with Kamala. Despite her nonexistent nappiness, black women know there’s enough negress there to do the job:



As for the nerdy Jewish husband, that’s an aesthetic sop for the SWPLs. The rest of her social circle is red meat for the POC ascendancy:



The woman knows where her vulnerabilities are. And while I won’t pretend to have anything like an insider’s understanding of the Californian political scene, the state’s dominant Democrat party is throwing its considerable weight in her direction for the 2020:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – California is determined to force 2020 Democratic presidential hopefuls to make some hard choices.

The nation’s most populous liberal state has moved its presidential nominating contest to early in the 2020 calendar, a shift its leaders hope will give it maximum impact on the selection of a Democratic nominee and push candidates to address progressive issues such as climate change.

Selling white Democrat disenfranchisement as a way to “address progressive issues such as climate change” that only white Democrats care about is a nice touch.

With Deval Patrick out and Cory Booker too weird to pose a real threat, Kamala’s biggest obstacle in winning the nomination is a structural one. At 86% and 91%, Iowa and New Hampshire are far whiter than the country as a whole, at 61%, is. Not since Bill Clinton in 1992 has the eventual Democrat nominee failed to win at least one of those first two states.

If Kamala wins either one, the nomination is almost certainly hers. Nevada and South Carolina will have non-white majorities among their Democrat primary-goers so she will easily win contests #3 and #4. With the huge California prize now part of Super Tuesday–as opposed to being an irrelevant afterthought as was the case in 2016–a day that already includes Texas, where non-whites will make up three-fourths Democrat primary-goers, it’s conceivable she will have effectively clinched the nomination by the first week of March.

Kamala’s nightmare scenario is Joe Biden convincingly winning both Iowa and New Hampshire and then Obama, after remaining on the sidelines up to that point, endorsing him in the name of unifying the party as quickly as possible to defeat Trump. Even if she isn’t able to win either of the first two contests, placing second or third and getting some help with split winners–say Biden in Iowa and then Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren in New Hampshire–she just needs to get to Nevada looking viable and it will be hers to lose.

    Hot take:

    The GOP has an opening with Commissar Kamala polling lower with white women, than with white men.

    Is this a Megan Markle effect?

    I get (deserved) flak for advising that Pence should run in place of Trump. But if Harris is truly unlikeable to white women, it could see the return of those “white college” voters that went for Romney but didn’t go for Trump.

  2. i have always wondered what kind of white ‘man’ would have a favorable view of a person like this.

    favorable view of joe biden, maybe. bernie sanders, maybe. but what adult man who works for his money has a favorable view of anybody like kamala harris.

    1) moderates, i guess. people who don’t know or follow politics. being agreeable and presentable is more important to them than being right on any issue.
    2) dumb people
    3) the wusses. the limp wristed wimps. those democrat national conventions are a quite a collection of these unmanly men.

    Harris/Beto seems plausible to me. He’s another white guy (despite what he tries to sell himself as, no one will buy it if he’s up against Harris/Booker) so he’ll split the Iowa/New Hampshire vote even more among non-Harris candidates. But he looks like he’d mike an ideal VP candidate from a Dem perspective.

    “The GOP has an opening with Commissar Kamala polling lower with white women, than with white men.”

    That’s interesting. I wonder if it has to do with her marrying a white guy – stealing one of their men, so to speak. Corey Booker is alleged to have cheated on his wife with a white girl, and black women hate that kind of race stealing, so he’s out; OJ’s jury acquitted him because they were angry that the victim white girl, Nicole Brown Simpson, stole one of their men. I wonder if our election might not come down to hens fighting over men – an anti-Bechdel Test. Alternatively, it could just be early in the cycle such that name recognition is skewing the polling results.

    Corey Booker is alleged to have cheated on his wife with a white girl,

    That might help his chances. Right now everybody thinks he’s gay.

  8. The Democrats are going to have a swarm of plausible and semi-plausible candidates. So the Iowa and New Hampshire votes could be very fractured and therefore not decisive.

    Harris checks the most demographic boxes. But she’s had everything handed to her pretty easily up to now. And she doesn’t strike me as a very charismatic campaigner.

    She could either be a female Obama or a black Hillary.

  9. The ‘nerdy white guy’ husband of Kamala Devi Harris, whom Epigone refers to but does not name, Douglas Emhoff, is actually Jewish … a ‘nebbish’ to use the yiddish-derived term for ‘nerdy’

    Given the sometime-Jewish claims that Jews are ‘not white’ – and thus deserving of minority-status protection, favouritism, etc – and the central role of the USA’s 2% Jewish population in USA politics, this should be mentioned

    Trump was the last gasp of boomer conservatism, while Harris will be the last gasp of boomer multiculturalism. What follows in 2024 is the millennial ascendancy and the tipping into civil unrest. A generation barely able to live on their own is not suited to pick sensible office holders. Throw in the brown tide that seems to be rising faster, despite Trump’s alleged opposition to it, and this age will look like a gold time to be a live.

  19. @Brabantian

    Given the sometime-Jewish claims that Jews are ‘not white’

    The only place I’ve seen it claimed that Jews are not white is right here–and it’s not Jews making that claim. Every Jew I know considers him/herself white.

    The only non-white Jew I know of was Sammy Davis Jr., and he’s dead.

  20. I’m going to be an optimist and say that it’s likely that Harris will win the nomination.

    A lot of past rules about Democrats should get thrown out here as Trump Derangement Syndrome continues to amplify and the need for the higher ups at the DNC to appear woke. Iowa and New Hampshire probably will remain strong bellwethers but the candidates who will get picked will likely get suppressed in favor of someone like Harris. Cory Booker’s time was the 2012 election: voters are not going to flock to yet another clean cut black man with ambiguous sexuality. Deval Patrick barely made an impact when he was more politically active. Social justice politics are like a drug: you need increasingly harder stuff to get the same high. Nominating “yet another” black man will not be as thrilling as Kween Kamala: a black woman who comes from a state that progressives idealize.

    How will Harris fare against Trump will depend on how she chooses to structure her campaign. If she tries to be as woke as possible, Trump will probably trounce her as they will see her “Oh no you di’int, Donald” routine and come out in droves to vote against Shaniqua at the voting booth. If she runs as a blue dog democrat, she probably stands a halfway decent chance at winning. Of course, her running as a blue dog is a pure lie but I suspect that the Republicans are going to stumble over themselves to prove how not racist they are as they attack her. It will come off as embarrassing and then they start reflexively cucking and throw Donald under the bus as they go into defeat.

    tbhfam, I see Beto as a flash in the pan. Every election cycle has a guy in the Democratic party that everyone hypes up to be the next best thing since since sliced bread…and then falls off the face of the earth. Such characters include but are not limited to: Howard Dean, Evan Bayh, Mark Warner, Brian Schweitzer, and Jim Webb. I have no doubt that Beto will keep running for various things but I’ve seen this kind of thing happen with Democrats every election cycle.

    The Democrats went all in on Beto not because he is *amazing* but because they really wanted to establish a narrative that Texas is no longer reliably red and that they were able to unseat a guy who got booed at the RNC 2016 convention. To be fair to the DNC, I don’t think Texas is reliably red thanks to demographics. The DNC is just a couple election cycles too early in forcing the issue but I have no doubt that we’ll see a formerly safe conservative election go blue in Texas within a decade. They don’t need Beto for that. He’ll probably hang around for a while longer, even if it is the butt of a joke like Howard Dean, but 2018 was his big moment and he came up short. Next time they will be able to trot out a real hispanic and win.

  24. Years ago, I was in the mall just looking at shoes, when I was mistaken for someone who could afford those shoes.

    Never mind that the mall store was staffed disproportionately with Black women, although not anything like as dramatically as the eight large-scale government agencies and corporate offices where I later worked or interviewed, seeing 80% — 90% Black-mom employees in a city with a 15% Black population.

    But in retail, unlike in office jobs, it is harder for female managers to avoid hiring the youthful beauties.

    Because of their skin pigmentation, Black people and other minorities cannot be racist, of course, whether that is racism against whites or racism against half-whites, not that jealousy over physical appearance———or other types of gang-style cronyism———is restricted to any one race or restrained in any way by female managers (of any race) in workplaces.

    Looking at those unaffordable shoes, I was approached by a Black female salesperson. She could have been a model. She was slender and elegant, with perfectly symmetrical features and the so-called “good hair.”

    In just a few minutes, the Black female manager and another Black female salesperson, neither of whom shared my salesgirl’s gifts from God, arrived in the area, making it an all-Black sales staff for that area of the upscale mall store, not the only area of this mall store staffed in that racist manner.

    My salesperson was just energetically doing her job, pleasantly chatting with me about shoes that, unbeknownst to her, I had no intention of buying and wouldn’t even if I could afford it. Never would I pay that much for a pair of shoes.

    Having worked in luxury sales for years, I was not planning to waste much of my salesperson’s time since she might make a sale with another customer, but the momma manager and her teacher’s-pet employee were determined to make a point to this uppity salesgirl in front of—for all they knew—someone who might be a paying customer.

    Openly glowering at this “good-hair” salesperson who was nothing but polite, the manager and her favored employee made multiple, un-called-for, catty remarks, right in front of a potential customer. It was uncomfortable for me, albeit I had seen so much unprofessional cattiness from women of all races in workplaces that I knew what they were up to.

    The salesgirl was young, and she was using the tactic of nicing-them-to-death, i.e. attempting to defuse their pelting group-attack by showering her colleagues with politeness and deference, a tactic that works in almost every case with customers, but in almost no case with gangs of mom colleagues (of any race) in workplaces.

    In fact, niceness emboldens gangs of females with like social characteristics, especially when deployed by non-culture-fit female colleagues. If an individual female colleague does not share the non-work-related social characteristics of the workplace-mom gang, she is regarded as a weak target if she responds to group attacks with niceness.

    It does not have to be an issue of looks; it can be any non-work-related social characteristic.

    Differences in education, dress, family composition or upbringing spark the same unprofessional, junior-high-level gang activity among females, in particular, although a few males are every bit as irrational about some of those issues.

    And the most irrational people often end up in management positions. It must be emotionally important to them to be on top, where they can lord over those who unintentionally threaten them, just by being what they are—being what they are in that moment when it comes to looks, which have a shelf-life.

    Mommas can’t let the girl enjoy her youthful period in the sun, now can they?

    If a customer had not been present, the girl could have just thrown her head back, walking away in the middle of their group attack without saying a word. I saw one young girl do this, effectively, when circled by a group of middle-aged mommas, acting like junior-high girls in a workplace. However, in this case, the catty and immature women would probably try to get her fired for walking away from a customer.

    The mommas would not fire her in a civilized way, either. They would be melodramatic there, too, milking the firing (over nothing) for all it was worth to see her squirm. She would probably try to be super-nice during the unprofessional-cubed firing-over-nothing, too, thinking she needed to be polite in a public place, like a workplace.

    Unprofessional behavior rules the day, even more in politics than in low-wage, mom-dominated workplaces.

    But I have seen no evidence that Harris rises above this uncouth fray. Regardless of her private life, she uses race constantly, and tactically, just like almost every other Democrat—Black or white. With politicians, it does not seem as emotional in motivation, unlike in many low-wage jobs offering wages that do not even cover the cost of one-room-apartment rent. Harris injects race into every political issue, trying to use race-baiting to get ahead at work, like the rest of the Tammany Hall II Party. There is big money in politics—big money for a small number of work hours.

    Congress gets paid $174k, with 218 days off per year and lots of deep-pocketed lobbyist contacts to grease the wheels for future, lucrative employment. Until the mommas chased her out of there, that retail salesgirl was likely working close to 365 days per year for—if she was lucky—$10 per hour, with a little commission in that department, not in most departments.

    ‘…I get (deserved) flak for advising that Pence should run in place of Trump…’

    Speaking for myself, the difficulty is that I really don’t want Pence to be President. I can stomach Trump on the grounds that he’s better than any of the alternatives. Pence is pretty vile in his own right.

    In that scenario, I think Biden wins my ‘least noxious’ vote. Maybe he won’t go to war in Iran and hold mass swear-ins of new citizens in soccer stadiums. It’s possible he’d refrain.

    Could happen…

  27. I think Beto could be more than VP, if he plays his cards right. Remember, in the 2008 primary, hispanic voters preferred Clinton to Obama 2-to-1. So much for nonwhite loyalty. The 2016 primary didn’t tell us much because the two main contenders were both white. Kamala will lock the black vote up, but the latino vote is not as easily gained.

    If Beto gains an early lead, he could win enough of the latino+white vote. Blacks vote in huge blocs, but a combined white+latino alliance would crush that. It’s not clear to me that asian democrats would prefer Kamala, even if she is half-Indian, since she clearly identifies more with her black side.

    So, the notion that the nonwhite electorate will side with the nonwhite candidate may not necessarily be true. Obama won in 2008 in large part because he had huge white liberal support. Clinton was seen then, as she was seen in her Contest with Bernie, as the corporate neoliberal hack (which was and remains true). Clinton relied on the white working class in 2008, which is easy to forget now. Since 2008, the democratic white voters have gotten much, much more liberal, which would favor a Beto candidacy. His appeal with hispanics makes it intriguing. Asians will probably be swinging either way.

    Kamala is basically Clinton in brownface. A more progressive candidate, which white liberals would favor, who could also appeal to hispanics like Beto would definitely be competitive.

    Biden is currently 76, so 78 in 2020 and 82 by 2024. He can only serve a single term, and whomever is his Vice President may be the one holding the real power.

    For the Dems, Beto is preferable to Biden.

    Senators tend to be less visible than Governors, and Harris is only in her first term. Just because Obama went from backbencher to President doesn’t mean it is transferable.

    Trump exemplifies many negative stereotypes of Boomer males. He’s been divorced, is tone-deaf to the concerns of women, avarice and corpulence. There was a significant number of people that thought those characteristics described *Romney*, and it also describes McCain accurately (before his recent revival for backstabbing).

    Harris has several glaring drawbacks. Namely that she traded sex for advancement. She thus can’t claim the feminist mantle as a “Self-made woman”. Her law school was UC Hastings, not UC Berkeley, UCLA or Stanford. Hastings is lower tier, and Harris would have been a double beneficiary of AA. If she was denied at the other three, she must have really tested bad on the LSAT and presumably isn’t that intelligent. Both of her parents were in High IQ positions, she might be a regression to the mean. Her sister went to law school at Stanford.

    To non-initiates, the above may seem odd, but recall that Rubio and Sarah Palin also had a background in lower tier academic institutions (as do I). Even at the age where his intelligence is diminishing, Trump could quite possibly still outthink Harris. More glaring would be if Trump was challenged by Ben Sasse. Mr. Cuckservative is undoutebly of a higher intelligence, of course it would be useless against a Dem in a general election. Trump’s fast-and-loose style with the truth only worked because there were so many other candidates on the stage.

    Well, there is the question of what people say and what people believe. Anyone who has been to college or had to deal with company HR knows what they’re supposed to say. Asking about view of a black woman is one of those instances. Even if its anonymous, people are conditioned to say what they know the higher-ups want to hear.

    It’s why Trump did better than polling showed. There were a fair number of people who simply lied to pollsters because they’ve learned to lie to everyone no matter the situation.

    You are overthinking this. The average voter couldn’t care less what school a candidate went to. The elite may but she is a senator from California so it’s likely that whatever reservations the DNC elite might have have probably been overcome. Since people are very much against the establishment, even for Democrats, someone who doesn’t come from the Ivies may be more of a benefit. As for Harris spreading her legs for advancement, in the modern feminist world, that is still considered more of a sign of empowerment to the childless unmarried women who are a solid foundation for the Democrat base. How many times has a single, childless woman used sex to get what she wants? A married woman with children will judge but an urbanite 25 year old who “dates” using Tinder and Bumble isn’t going to care.

    I agree that the average voter doesn’t pay particular attention to where a candidate attended school, but I am arguing that admissions has a “filtering” effect alongside its “signaling” effect. That Sen. Harris was only admitted to Hastings is an indicator that her intelligence isn’t up to par, just as Rubio and Palin were exposed as lightweights.

    Of the 1.7K 18-29 ,the R/I data shows harris at 59% approval in 18-29 men (734), and 50-50 with 18-29 women (543). Meghan Markle effect.

    One of the reasons behind “intersectionality” is to prevent the various leftist groups from ripping themselves apart. Likewise, women have a tendency to engage in “slut-shaming” more than men, which is why feminists police it so much.

    You are quite right on that point.

    This is also true throughout the MSM concerning the use of the term ‘white racism’.

    ‘White racism’ is an implicit reference to white gentiles of the Christian persuasion only. These ‘race proud’ evil-doers are KKK eligible. (They are not poor suffering downtrodden Holocaust survivors–or their descendents). This induced distinction is a remarkable achievement.

    The ‘post-Holocaust’ moral/social hierarchy that now exists between Jews and gentiles is a brilliant contrivance. And it’s 100% kosher.

    Whereas ‘white supremacism’ has become an everyday term throughout Zionist-occupied America, one has to search the web or pick up a David Duke book to find the term ‘Jewish supremacism’, thought the shoe certainly fits.

    When celebrated intellectual (((Susan Sontag))) proclaimed that “whites are a cancer on the world”, she certainly wasn’t referring to herself, her family, or David Ben Gurion.

    Jews are ‘white’ when it serves them to be seen or categorized as such. Jews become non-white when whiteness gets targeted (which is pretty much all the time now.)

    IF Harris gets the 2020 dem Prez nomination – and is smart enough to bring in Beto as VP – she will wax a fading Trump in the popular vote by 5 to 10 points, and – flipping both Texas and Florida – win in the EC by c. 400 votes.

Not sure if it will be 2020 or 2024 or some other time in the future but he is a strong candidate for the Democrats in the sense that it’s a levantine who is able to oversee a major impoverished majority-minority city, which time and time again we are told is the ideal multicultural utopia scenario. I get the feeling that he will be one of the guys who gets selected once Texas and Florida turn permanently blue and we are now living in a one-party nation. At that point it becomes less about who has the right intersectional multipliers and who just knows how to work the DNC behind the scenes levers best.

    Another former Obama aide said O’Rourke, even after losing his Senate bid, has energized the party like no one since the former president. “The party hasn’t seen this kind of enthusiasm since Obama,” the aide said. “There isn’t one other potential candidate out there that has people buzzing. And that’s exactly why people supported Obama and why they’ll support Beto.”

    Former Obama adviser Dan Pfeiffer made a more practical pitch for Beto: Our nominee needs to be able to excite first-time and periodic voters to turn out AND win over independent voters, particularly in the exurban and rural counties that turned Florida, Ohio, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania from Obama blue to Trump red. This was the formula Beto used to do better than any Democrat has done in Texas in decades. According to exit polls, first time voters made up one-fifth of the electorate and went for Beto by 14 points. Beto’s successful progressive appeal to the base didn’t turn off the middle — he did 12 points better with independents than Hillary Clinton did in 2016.

    And now, it transpires that Barack Obama himself has done more than just say nice things about O’Rourke, according to the Washington Post: Beto O’Rourke, weighing whether to mount a 2020 presidential bid, met recently with Barack Obama at his post-presidency offices in Washington …The meeting was the first sign of Obama getting personally involved in conversations with O’Rourke, who despite his November loss in a U.S. Senate race in Texas has triggered more recent discussion and speculation than any other candidate in the burgeoning 2020 field.

    the association with Obama, however informal, is worth its weight in gold to O’Rourke.

    His reelection chances have a lot to do with the economy, something which he can’t really control–though he has been cleverly setting up the FED as the fall guy for the next recession.

    We’re now nine years into the economic expansion, and it appears that the incredible bull run has come to an end as well. The yield curve is inverting as well. The 3/5 is already inverted, though the 2/10 is not yet there.

    One of the Democratic Party’s most prolific fundraisers says he has pledged to raise campaign money for rising political star Beto O’Rourke should the Texas Democrat seek the presidency in 2020.

    It’s time to pass the torch to a new generation,” said Susman, a former US Ambassador to United Kingdom in the Obama administration. “I have nothing against the Bidens and Kerrys of the world and all of these senators that are looking at it, but I think the Beto example is what inspired people and what we are going to need.” The support from Susman marks the latest sign of Democratic enthusiasm for O’Rourke, a three-term congressman who raised record sums in his Senate bid and came within 3 percentage points of toppling Republican Sen. Ted Cruz in traditionally red Texas. A CNN tally also shows dozens of top Obama bundlers provided financial support to O’Rourke’s unsuccessful bid.

    a CNN analysis shows O’Rourke has won the attention of some of Obama’s biggest financial backers. At least 59 individuals who raised $500,000 or more for Obama’s re-election in 2012 donated to O’Rourke’s 2018 campaign, CNN’s tally finds. That surpasses the number of top bundlers who contributed to the federal fundraising vehicles established in this election cycle by other Democrats who have either declared their 2020 intentions or are pondering bids.

    1. Trump cannot win 2020 without some victory to talk about on immigration. His turnout will be too depressed.

    2. Those bigging up Beto and Biden are desperately confused. Being white and a man are strong negatives among nearly all voters, including Republicans. A generic white man would lose against a generic black woman every time and in every state. It really is 2018 and there’s no point in pretending otherwise. Beto didn’t pretend to be Beto to harm his chances. Indeed, I’d wager that even this board would be more passionate about an ascendant candidate than a non-ascendant one, if both shared this board’s point of view.

    3. A hard left white person can trump a soft left brown person with elements of the Democratic base but the hard left only really factors when the Democrats feel they are going to wim regardless. Or going to lose regardless. 2020, with Trump incumbent, is obviously not that election. And “elements” are not really enough anyway.

But judging by his performance and efforts thus far, there will be no wall, no closure of the southern border outside ports of entry, no real effort to repeal birthright citizenship, no drastic limitation on H1B visas and other excessive legal immigration.

    We may have more gun and self-defense rights, and more internet freedom, under trump than a dem, but in the medium term — not long now — demographics will change enough more to give the Dems a lock on the white house.

    Trump is highly vulnerable on immigration and that could be enough to sink him in a GOP presidential primary.

    If populism is the general desire of the citizenry to change out one ruling class for another, then Trump can be painted as a candidate who campaigned as a populist but sided with the globalizer ruling class the second he got into power.

    The idea of “parachuting” is to put highly visible non-white candidates into Congress, in the way that they are often appointed in the Executive branch. The system of single member districts and direct primaries almost requires a self-funding candidate that has the ability to raise considerable amounts of money. It’s also common for members of Congress to have previously held a state or local office. So our Congresscreatures are usually much older than the MPs in the Anglo Four. MPs are bound by the party whip, which is much less powerful in our Congress.

    A good example of a “parachuted” candidate in Congress is Elise Stefanik in NY21.

    “Parachuting” is basically the worst of Affirmative Action and nepotism combined. But it will be difficult for the GOP to remain a contender in national politics unless it acquires visible non-whites and women, and in leadership positions. That means pushing out incumbents in safe seats and putting under-qualified non-whites in their place.

    are not White. And

    (((they))) know it.

    If Kamala had been nursing a long-term desire to become potus, she would have been much better off marrying a black guy instead of a rich Jew, wouldn’t she? Obama was thinking ahead since his college days, which could explain why he went with Michelle even though he could have had his pick of glamorous white women. Is America ready for an interracial couple in the White House?

    I agree that this will be a normal recession. For my generation, that will be a first (I was alive for the 90-91 recession, but do not recall it). I certainly can’t see any evidence of a brewing financial crisis, whereas it was glaringly obvious the last two times. The banks have never been stronger in my lifetime.

    The Italian national debt isn’t causing any sort of a crisis at all, despite the fact that Italy isn’t a sovereign currency issuer–let alone the beating heart of the global financial system. Even at the peak of the Euro crisis Italian bond yields only reached 7%.

    America’s fiscal direction is dubious, but the federal government certainly isn’t at risk of going broke anytime soon.

    “Cory Booker’s time was the 2012 election.”

    So, you think he should have challenged the sitting President Obama for the democrat nomination?

    Biden the “least noxious.”

    In 2020, Biden will be 78 years old. Bernie Sanders will be 79. To nominate either one sounds like it would be suicide for their party. But, if its Biden, some PAC should keep running the tape over and over again where loud mouth Uncle Joe says that the immigrants will keep coming and coming, he doesn’t want it to stop, and that whites will be an absolute minority in 20 or so years. And the race traitor is happy about it.

    And Palin did so much for McCain’s ticket. LOL

  113. @follyofwar

    Just realized she has step-children via Emhoff. They married four years ago, when Harris was post-wall 50. Having a complete family is good for presidential ambitions.

  114. @Gyre07

    No one could’ve beaten Obama. The three days following Palin’s announcement were the only three days of the entire election cycle where McCain polled above Obama, though. She did help him–quite a bit for VPs, who generally don’t move the needle at all.

  115. @follyofwar

    No but his time has passed. He would have had peak political power in the 2012 election era when progressive rags couldn’t stop talking about him. Now he is no longer the shiny new object of the Democratic party and like many politicians who have been around for more than a senate term, he has enough baggage and racked up enough mistakes to where it could be used against him during the primaries or the general. Also much like Kamala Harris, he has made several attempts to distinguish himself as a serious politician and has fallen flat. So long story short, in Current Year + 3, Cory Booker is a less charismatic Obama with more baggage than Obama had in 2007 by comparison.

  116. @Gyre07

    When Lehman Brothers crashed and burned, so did McCain’s chances of the presidency. While I’m not a fan of Palin by any means, there was so much animosity towards the GOP and neoconservatism at that point that there was nothing Palin or any Republican could do to turn their fortunes around. Like Lindsey Graham said at his funeral, “he taught us how to lose.”

    The Palin effect lasted more than 3 days. McCain was ahead in the polls from the day of the Palin announcement until the day he said he was “suspending” his campaign to go back to DC to help pass the TARP aka the 600 billion dollar bankster bailout.

    Which 80% of the country was vehemently opposed to, and told their congresspeople so, and Congress loudly ignored them.

    The cause of the 2008 crisis was, in a word, fraud; and not one banker has ever been prosecuted for it. The bad debt is still on the books, too.

    Come the revolution, decisions like that need to be retroactively prosecuted as corruption and treason, and all financial gains vaguely related to such decisions be clawed back and confiscated. Same way the current world order’s governments still go looking for Nazi camp guards.

  118. Kamala is very well positioned to do well, the demographics are very favourable, but there is no evidence that voters like her.

    She is scoring 4% to Biden’s 30% in very early Iowa polls, she simply isn’t popular enough to win primaries.

    Iowa voters simply don’t know who she is. That’ll change and then she’ll blow Biden out of the water.
