It is so very fitting last night’s 2020 democrat-socialist demolition derby was held in Las Vegas, because the field of wannabe power-drunkards look like scenes from the next morning from The Hangover.
Hey, don’t ever let any of the 2020 democrat-socialists try to sell you how they are for the little guy. Not after last night’s beatdown they gave newcomer to the debate stage, “mini” Mike Bloomberg. It’s okay. Primary candidates are supposed to knock each other down in order to get a leg-up in the polling. But while they (mostly Liz Warren with her obviously prepared Trump analogies with Bloomberg) hammered Bloomberg, none of the actually made any strong points on actual issues that concern the rest of the American people.
Apparently Jen hates a #NastyWoman standing up for Bloomberg’s paid-off #MeToo female employees.
And somebody was quick to get to Bloomberg’s Wiki page last night. They got the year wrong. My money’s on Joe Biden late last night post-debate hangover…
Yeah, that’s WaPo’s designated “conservative” blogger, Jen Rubin, who is now in the army of Never-Trump cucks. She’s a twatwaffle of the first order. Sounds like the cuck brigade, who insists republicans/conservatives must vote straight democrat tickets in November, have chosen (for now, at least) to throw-in with Bloomberg. Anyhow, I hate to break Rubin’s latest Tiger Beat heartthrob but Bloomberg looked like a defenseless old turtle on his back being kicked around the schoolyard by a gang of low IQ bullies. Eventually he receded into his shell. THAT’s not “smart” or “going high”. None of them looked or sounded good. But Bloomberg looked weak, like somebody who simply pays other people to do the hard work while he sits in the backseat of his limo. He cannot even defend his own success. I’m sorry, but flouting the fact you can write a check for a quarter to a half of a billion dollars for scripted TV and radio ads over these last couple months is not defending your ability to build a big successful empire.
Here is a simple thing Bloomberg could have pointed out about the other candidates. He could have brought up how the mega rich celebrity world is currently picking their candidate(s) from this current field. He could pointedly have proposed they rebuff those endorsements and support. Nope, mini-Mike was on his back as the others rifled through his pockets looking for his billions.
As I said, the Never-Trumpers are looking for the democrat candidate to bolster and promote. With good old Joe Biden looking like the nursing home nurse has stayed too long outside in her smoking break and he’s past his meds time, they were wiping their nervous sweaty brows when Bloomberg stepped in. As it looks this morning, neither Biden or Bloomberg look as if they will last through the primary elections, if they even make it that far. And what will the neo-con resistance do when that happens? Which of the other strident dem-socialists will they put on the hazmat suit for and support going into November? Aside from Bloomberg, none of the rest have accomplished much at all in their careers. Biden is a career politician at its worst. As is Bernie Sanders, who never held a real job in his life and has spent his entire political career insisting the hard-earned money of others must be confiscated, through heavy taxation, and turned over to a centralized federal government to spend as its hierarchy sees fit. Mayor Pete But-edge-edge who has hyped himself with thin record of accomplishments and qualifications when he has none to show for his tenure as mayor of a small midwestern town.
Serious items that should have been addressed last night but were not:
Bloomberg’s dismissive disdain and insult of this great nation’s farmers, factory workers, and coal miners, etc.
Klobuchar and Buttigieg are from the Midwest, the heartland, and neither made any attempt to strike back in representation and defense of the millions of people therein that Bloomberg turns up his nose at and regards in low-intellect. Instead the two went this route…
Klobuchar: ‘I Wish Everyone Was As Perfect As You, Pete.’
“I wish everyone was as perfect as you, Pete,” Klobuchar said in one round, when the topic was immigration. “But let me tell you what it is like to be in the arena.”
(Klobuchar often speaks of being “in the arena,” a reference to her tenure as senator from Minnesota.)
Buttigieg shot back: “Maybe leading a diverse city that was facing ruin doesn’t sound like the arena to you. I’m used to senators telling mayors that senators are more important than mayors. But this is arena, too. You don’t have to be in Washington to matter.”
Klobuchar declared herself “very proud” of the work she’s done on immigration reform — although none of the bills she worked on years ago passed.
“And you know what?” she asked Buttigieg. “You have not been in the arena doing that work. You’ve memorized a bunch of talking points and a bunch of things. But I can tell you one thing. What the people of this country want, they want a leader that has the heart for the immigrants of this country. And that is me.”
To be fair, Buttigieg really does present himself as perfect in everyway, especially as a scripture-thumping “Christian”.
Nor was Bloomberg challenged on his money funneling to lawyers in the DOJ and legal systems throughout the nation.
The growing violent nature of Bernie Sanders’s core supporters constantly caught on video in conversations or at his rallies, and recent harassment against hesitant unions.
Joe Biden’s (who was amazing allowed to basically remain silent last night) ongoing family scandals. The MSM and the left/dems always like to lie about Trump supporters at rallies being so violent and racist.
Mayor Pete’s striking lack of support from the city he failingly governed in Indiana, AND his insistence on smugly second guessing Christians and their political choices. Nobody does Christian hypocrisy like Pete does (his homosexuality aside as it’s his personal conversation with God) with his strong views and defense of limitless unrestricted abortion at any time.
Liz Warren’s political climb via a ladder built on lies.
I’ll give Bloomberg this, he did point out the “democrat-socialist” hypocrisy and lie, especially by Sanders and his millionaire status and three houses. He managed to squeak out a defense of capitalism in the face of communist and socialist failures around the world when it was tried … to which Sanders made the laughable claim of not being a communist. He had better tell that to his rabid supporters brawling in the aisles and streets. But Bloomberg did not defend his own billionaire status, what it took for him to build it, and what he has done (outside his paid-off scandals) for charities and the hundreds of thousands of people he employs.
Bloomberg to Bernie: “What a wonderful country we have. The best known socialist in the country happens to be a millionaire with 3 houses. What’d I miss here?”
He really was a proverbial fly in the dem-socialist ointment on the stage. He may have a gravitas resume, but he doesn’t have the chops to go up against this media darling field of comrades, much less Pres. Trump’s successful first term. “Orangeman Bad” might look like a bull in a china shop, but he would trample that turtle spinning on its back on the china shop floor.
You bet your cat hair covered ass.
By the way…
I use my physical observations of people sparingly. However, here is something that really makes me shake my head while watching Mike Bloomberg last night. Yes, he looked like a turtle to me…
Whatever. But here’s the thing I noticed, we never see his upper teeth when he talks, and he wasn’t smiling much last night while getting kicked around. But we did see his bottom teeth, and they are pretty poorly looking. I mean, we are talking about a guy who is estimated to have at least 60 billion dollars and will not put money into a decent smile? Hey, I’m not asking for Biden-like fake choppers. But at least a nice whitening process in the dentist’s office on a routine basis would be prudent, and at most a natural looking set of implants, even at his age…
