The Left is Clear, They Want Another Loser in 2020

Published

A failed U.S. Senate candidate from Texas topped a MoveOn straw poll for 2020 Democratic Party presidential candidates.

“An early straw poll of members of the progressive group MoveOn.org shows a wide-open competition for liberal voters in the 2020 Democratic presidential contest, with Rep. Beto O’Rourke narrowly beating out former Vice President Joe Biden,” according to NBC

The state representative won 15.9 percent of the vote to Biden’s 14.9 percent. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) placed third with 13.1 percent. The most popular answer in the early poll was “undecided,” at 30 percent.

O’Rourke, whose full name is Robert Francis O’Rourke but who uses “Beto” as an appeal to Latino voters, met with former president Barack H. Obama in mid-November, a sign that points to him making a presidential bid in 2020. He also placed in the top three in a recent Harvard/Harris poll, coming in just behind Biden and Sanders.

O’Rourke, who gives off a charismatic populist vibe not dissimilar to that of Obama during his 2008 campaign, has a father-in-law who is a billionaire and spent a record $80 million losing to Sen. Rafael “Ted” Cruz (R-Texas) in the 2018 midterm.

“The three men were followed by Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., who garnered 10 percent support, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., with 6.4 percent,” the NBC report said. “Meanwhile, three Democratic senators, Sherrod Brown of Ohio, Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and Cory Booker of New Jersey, and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg were each selected by about 3 percent of members.”

The Democrats are searching for an identity after running their 2018 midterms strictly on a platform of Trump hatred, and banking on the historical norm of a first term president losing seats in Congress. Soon they will have to choose is they want to stick with what they know – a former Vice President and a socialist who ran a strong primary campaign in 2015 and 2106, or a newer, fresher face without a proven track record.

DESPERATION: Never Trumpers Float Romney/Bloomberg as ‘the Unity Ticket America Deserves’

How pathetic are these guys?

Published

on

The “Never Trump” brain trust over at The Bulwark has unveiled their antidote to stop the President they hate so much in this year’s election: a “unity ticket” consisting of Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) as a presidential candidate and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg as his running mate.

Author Neal Simon made the argument that this potential third-party ticket would appeal to independents in an op/ed published on Monday.

“Senator Romney’s entrance into the presidential race wouldn’t just give the vital center of the electorate a home—it would stand a chance to break a system that is stacked against independents and third party candidates,” Simon argued.

He compared Romney’s potential to that of French President Emmanuel Macron, the reviled ruler who has populist Yellow Vest protesters rioting against his unpopular style of governance every weekend.

“And as Emmanuel Macron showed in France, standing up a new party and winning a presidential election in one motion is not impossible,” Simon wrote.

Simon posited that by putting Bloomberg on his ticket as Vice President, Romney could essentially buy the election, which is what Bloomberg is basically trying to do right now with his run for the Democratic presidential nomination.

“A Romney-Bloomberg ticket would be a first in modern American politics: A bipartisan unity ticket running under the banner of an independent third party,” he wrote.

Simon’s premise is predicated off of an assumption that Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) will win the Democrat presidential nomination. He believes that populism taking over the Republican and Democrat parties would open the door for a centrist revolution that could be led by Romney and Bloomberg.

“It would give both disgruntled Republicans who feel their party has become lost in Trump’s personality cult and Democrats who feel their party is lurching too far left towards a socialist revolution a voice on the ballot that reflects a popular idea of how the country should be run,” he concluded.

Simon, who was a failed independent candidate in the state of Maryland for the U.S. Senate in 2018, recently published a book titled, “Contract to Unite America: Ten Reforms to Reclaim Our Republic.” He is using the words of George Washington in his manifesto to defeat the new age of populist politics and return to the days of old.

“Capitalizing on personal insight derived from Simon’s political campaign along with extensive research, Contract to Unite America provides specific, practical solutions for an improved government and a better tomorrow,” Simon’s book description reads.

Unfortunately for Simon and the “Bulwark” neocons, the public has had enough of status quo politicians and does not want to return to the George W. Bush era. The dream ticket of Romney/Bloomberg is not likely to come to fruition.
