UPDATE: Wednesday night’s Democrat debate in Nevada allowed for a sharp focus on the candidates’ personalities. It wasn’t pretty.
Warren: The debate had barely started when she said that one candidate is a “billionaire who calls women fat broads and horse-faced lesbians." With her hoarse voice and scolding manner, she was every mean old lady that children learn to fear.
Bloomberg was generally out of his league in the jostle and thrust of a debate. He’s used to the boardroom, a place in which everyone falls silent when he speaks. He came across as condescending and disconnected.
Bernie, as always, was the angry old man. He reiterated his usual points: socialized medicine, the horror of billionaires (he no longer mentions millionaires now that he’s one too), and the need for a command-and-control economy to fight climate change.
Poor Biden. Obama has practically disavowed him, but Biden is still clinging desperately to his coattails. He’s only marginally articulate most of the time and, as the evening wore on and fatigue caught up with the old guy, he stopped making sense.
Buttigieg is just a bundle of smug. He’s the smart-ass teacher’s pet no one likes. He delivered his canned, mostly meaningless homilies with knowing little grins. He picked too many silly arguments, such as trying to denigrate Klobuchar for forgetting Mexican President Obrador’s name.
Klobuchar is a non-entity who desperately wants to be an entity. There’s a vacuum where her personality should be and she tries to fill it by boasting about her Minnesota election successes and her having voted on multiple bills in Congress.
Not a single person on the stage is a leader or a statesman. There’s something almost tragic about the fact that the essence of the Democrat Party – the oldest continuously existing political party in the world – has been reduced to these six uninspiring, unqualified people.
"The Rise of Democratic Idiocracy"
The Pop Culture Dictionary defines idiocracy as “a society run or made up of idiots.”
In this new Democratic world, the absurd is now the accepted norm, totally illogical thought becomes completely rational, scientific fact is discarded for the purpose of political expediency and historical fact is a tiresome inconvenience that can be ignored as needed.
When asked by Norah O’Donnell of CBS -- as friendly a liberal media TV interviewer as there could possibly be -- what his universal Government-run health plan would cost, Sanders replied, “I don’t know, no one knows.” He calls himself a “Democratic Socialist,” but is never asked to specifically explain exactly what that means, or what percentage “democratic” and “socialist” things are in his imaginary world
”Mike will get it done.” Get what done? To “Get it done,” Mike will have to create a new Bizarro world, a world where everything is different. In the real world -- the one where we all live -- President Trump has already gotten it done.
Poor Joe. Is he even still in the race? He gives every indication of not knowing exactly what world he’s in from moment to moment. He’d have a better chance if he knew what state he was in.
Clearly the thought leader of the current Democratic Party. Her almost daily pronouncements are laughably detached from any semblance of reality. She spouts all the usual clichés: capitalism is bad, America is evil and deeply flawed, only the wealthy are doing well, etc., but the Democratic candidates parrot every single one of them.
She rips up her copy of President Trump’s SOTU speech and it’s okay. Nary a word of criticism from any Democratic politician or the liberal media. This from a person who says she is Catholic and there is no hate in her heart for the president. For Pelosi and the idiocrats, it’s fine to invoke religion when rationalizing their preferred behavior.
Despite constant media attacks and the manic, obsessive attempts by elected Democrats to somehow reverse and nullify his 2016 victory over the increasingly pathetic Hillary Clinton, President Trump continues to make huge progress on a wide front of issues. Minorities are doing better economically than at any time in our history, we’ve reduced carbon emissions more than any country on earth, wages for all are rising and we’re energy-independent. Every aspect of American life is getting better and better.
The Democrats have no real openings. So they’re reduced to fabricating an idiocracy where their candidates recite total nonsense and they think we’ll fall for it.
