A great disturbance
« on: May 18, 2019, 08:12:08 PM »
I felt a great disturbance at the DUmp.  As if a million DUmmies cried out in terror while their candidates imploded.

Here are two complimentary links dealing with the implosion or explosion of the Democratic's candidates.  I am very limited in bandwidth still so links only.

One deals with the Sandman and book money, the other with how to run for office to enhance your future.

Should one a man of wisdom meet
who points out faults and gives reproof,
who lays a hidden treasure bare,
with such a sage should one consort.
Consorting so is one enriched
and never in decline.

We have too many candidates. What's really going on here?

Now there are 24 Dems running for president. That is way too many.

The more there are, the less chance they have of getting any delegates from any caucus or primary, due to 15% rule.

This favors Biden above all. If candidates don't drop out it is possible in some caucuses and primaries Biden could be the only candidate to get ANY delegates at all. (This would mean even Bernie failed to get 15% which is possible because the progressive vote is being split among too many people.)

I'm not sure this is a good thing. I'm not sure why so many people are running.

What's really going on here?


Some of their concerns are around the fact that it's bleeding out the senate races.

2. It is their choice, of course, but I'm frustrated that more will not take on the Senate...
 
Several of them (if successful) are either leaving behind Senate seats (that are not all safe) or are declining to challenge vulnerable Republican incumbents, whose seats could mean everything to our chances of taking the Senate (or at least increasing our numbers).

8. Couldn't agree more.
 
It's starting to hurt us I think.

We need a few clear voices opposing Trump. Not 24 critiquing each other.

The latest entry seems especially hubristic.

21. It's simple. So many Democrats are entering the 2020 contest because
 
each and every one of them thinks 2020 will be an easy victory for whomever the Democratic candidate ends up being. They might not admit it publicly because it would make them look overconfident, but most of them would not be entering the race if they didn't think Trump would be such an easy victory in 2020.

The ones who are making 2020 out to be a close election are the folks in the media who will try to have everyone believing that it will be close in order to keep their ratings up. On the contrary to what the media is dishing out, 2020 will be a once in a lifetime opportunity for a relatively easy Democratic victory, so that's why everyone under the sun is jumping in. I mean, how many times does someone get to go up against a ****ing dunce like Donald Trump who is so hated around country and around the world? Rarely, if ever.

The 2nd is a big gigantic fight about Bernie. 

On another small thread in the primaries forum, someone said about Sniffer Joe's PA rally today:

Well, DUmmy, it's like this.

That clown car (the proper name for a herd of Democrat candidates) knows that the fastest, most effective way to get rich is to run for President. Those clowns who are currently in office can spend the next 16 months double dipping; ignoring, but still being paid for, the jobs they were elected to, while munching on lobsters on chartered planes as they "campaign". It's their chance to fart through silk and bang groupies every night, without having to learn to play the electric guitar.

And how many of those 6,000 were paid and/or bussed in by corrupt Labor Unions and other groups?  Here in Columbus, Ohio (the name of the city has not yet been changed by DEMS) busloads of out-of-state protestors were brought here in past months to scream pro-infanticide slogans and to protest charter schools, during legislative debates or votes on those issues.

I don't have a high opinion of the intelligence of the current crop of Dem leaders, but I doubt many are dumb enough to think 2020 will be anything like an easy victory.

Personally I think the Dems may bee trying to overwhelm Trump with potential targets, as if he can't figure out who the leading Dem candidates and doesn't have loads of time to respond. I also think they may be working longer term, using an election in which their chances are slim to get lots of people name recognition toward future runs for statewide and national offices.

I can't understand why the party of narcissism and wanton self indulgence has so many people vying for the nation's top political office.

5. Auditioning for VP or cabinet positions?

 
Auditioning for VP or cabinet positions?

Improving their CV by adding another line-item of "former candidate for Democratic nominee..."

Getting a book deal?

Increased speaker's fees?

Giving their grandchildren something to brag about at show-and-tell?

All the above and of course campaign funds to make them rich!! They are to lazy to try to earn big bucks. :loser:

I bet the Democrat nomination is someone that no one has heard of and likely a female.
