The field of Democrats running for President has been essentially whittled down to three people- Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden, and Tulsi Gabbard and her lone delegate. How we long for those days not so long ago when such household names as Seth Moulton, Eric Swalwell and- my favorite- John Hicklenhooper were in the mix. We have gone from Beto to Buttigieg to Bloomberg to Bernie to Biden. Besides all having “B” in their names, they are all just more names in the long list of pretenders to the Democrat throne.
Of course, the big question is whether anyone could defeat Donald Trump in the November general election. Some were too young and inexperienced such as Beto and Buttigieg, while others were so senile they often do not know what state they are in, whether their wife or sister is standing there on the stage (hint: your wife is the one whose fingers you sucked), and what office he is running for. He have the blatant liars like a self-declared Native American that managed to piss off real Native Americans, and brutally honest socialist who literally drools at the thought of taking more of your pay check.
And boy has the field changed at lightning fast speed. It started with a fiasco of the Iowa caucuses but this is where the scam starts to enter the scene. It is akin to the best laid plans of a schemer like Bernie Madoff. A lot of Democrat voters invested in various candidates who jumped ship forcing the voters to now invest in a candidate somewhere up the food chain. It is great for an investor who gets in and out early because the potential for profit is high. But when the bottom falls it, it could be a living hell. That is where the Democrats find themselves now.
Look at the case of mayor Pete. He was the toast of Wall Street donors racking up about $100 million from them. He had money and he had media exposure. Sure, he said a lot of nothing with a lot of words, but media coverage was rather positive. So, what did he do? A loss in South Carolina convinced him to abandon ship and his supporters are left holding the bag unless they, of course, reinvest based on Buttigieg’s expert advice: Biden is the man. Michael Bloomberg sunk $600 million of his fortune into a campaign and actually garnered some delegates in the mix- in fact, many more than Tulsi Gabbard. Yet, he followed Buttigieg and Bloomberg and Klobuchar and Warren into retirement.
All those investors in these clowns are now forced to hedge their bets on a 77-year-old, obviously senile man. In a way, it is tragic, but it also very amusing at the same time. The establishment Democrats and their media allies are all-too-aware that Biden, given his obvious detachment from reality, cannot defeat Trump in 2020. But, since the Democrats started this scam, they need something to keep it going through November.
Let’s go back to 2018 when a young, inexperienced and infinitely stupid bartender from the Bronx stunned the political world and became a Congresswoman. In 2019, a young Swedish girl lacking a degree in physics or biology graced the cover of magazines and was nominated for a Nobel Prize because she scolded the world about climate change. If anything is true it is that anything can happen.
Now consider the ultimate Democrat scam-perpetuator: Michelle Obama. To disbelieve that Biden would not consider her for VP is rife with trepidation. Some may dismiss this notion much like people dismissed Greta Thunberg or AOC. One person who sees the possibility of Michelle Obama riding in on a white horse to save the Democrats is Steve Bannon. When over 1,500 California voters were asked who they would like to see as a VP for Biden, Michelle Obama was the overwhelming winner, even besting Kamala Harris. Market research firm, YouGov, ranked her the most admired woman in America after conducting a poll. The Hill wrote glowingly of her in 2018 stating:
Obama’s aspirational tone gives the former first lady a high moral position within the party and American life.
It must be mentioned that Michelle Obama has said there is “zero chance” she would seek any political office in 2020. But as reality sets in for the Democrats as the Gaffe King, if Biden is the nominee, must run against not only Trump but a very good economy and a nation at peace, the question is whether these Obama credentials will be enough to convince her otherwise. Even without any political aspirations, she will be the most sought after surrogate for the Democrats.
We live in weird political times where intelligence deficient bartenders make it to Congress and spoiled brats are lauded for lecturing world leaders. Anything is possible in 2020 and the possibility of Michelle Obama entering the scene is not out of the realm of possibilities. Trump Derangement Syndrome defines the Democrats these days and they will stop at nothing to keep the scam going. Whether considered as a choice at a brokered convention if it comes to that, or as a possible VP choice, the TDS will reach such a frenzy that it will make the coronavirus appear like the common cold.
