Where Do Democrats Go from Here?

2020 February 11

  • Two of the presumed front-runners (Biden and Warren) have failed miserably in Iowa and New Hampshire
  • After a lackluster performance in Iowa, which borders Minnesota, Klobuchar was surprisingly strong in New Hampshire
  • Sanders, who everyone knows is far-left, and Buttigieg, who most don’t realize is far-left, did well in both Iowa and New Hampshire
  • Bloomberg is looming in the wings, with untold billions to spend
  • Saturday, February 22, is the Nevada caucus
  • Saturday, February 29, is the South Carolina primary (Joe Biden’s last stand?)
  • The following Tuesday, March 3, is the first Super Tuesday (Alabama, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont and Virginia)

If you were on the DNC, what would you be thinking/hoping?


Joe Biden’s NH victory party. The former VP had already left for South Carolina.

    “Hey I know let’s try more impeachment bullshit!”

    Second thought… “can we get some more corona over here and tank the economy completely?”
    BTW I believe Mexico City just got it’s first official case late today.

    on a related note

    President Trump broke the modern record of votes in the New Hampshire primary for an incumbent beating Ronald Reagan’s 86.43% in 1984. https://t.co/FRoClOczyq

    As EPH might say maybe I spoke too soon, second look at NH? 😉

    “Where Do Democrats Go from Here?”

    My humble proposition ….. “To Hell!” Especially the friggin Democratic Socialists.

    On the Repub side, Trump got 120K votes. (Both Bernie and Mayor Pete were around 70K)
    Weld, former Mass Gov, got 9% but no delegates I think. That 9% looks large though…
    Dem cross overs? Trump-hating Repubs?

    Love the photo of Joe’s “victory” party

    CNN calls NH for Bern

    Bernie appeals to all the “have-nots”. Granted, there are some real “have-nots”, but MOST of those who perceive themselves “have-nots” are just people jealous that someone else has more…and they are too lazy to work harder (or work at all).

    So when Bernie promises them FREE STUFF, they choose to believe he will take stuff from OTHER people, and give it to them.

    Of course, anyone with a modicum of common sense knows that full on Socialism (the kind Bernie is promising) ALWAYS keep “re-distributing” other people’s stuff, until EVERYONE is miserable and starving. [see: Venezuela, Cuba, North Korea, USSR…]

    Bernie mentions Denmark sometimes, but they are NOT Bernie style Socialism, and frankly, they are not US either. People who think Socialism might be OK”, should go live under it for a while.

    Remember folks, you can VOTE your way into Socialism…but you have to SHOOT your way out!

    The Dems have a dilemma. Unlike RINOs – like Bush43, McCain and Romney – Trump will take any opponents weakness and exploit it.

    Bernie is so far left that he scares the Dem establishment and much of the donor class. If Bernie is the nominee, Democrats may not fully support him. If Bernie has the most delegates and doesn’t get the nomination, his supporters will go ballistic. They won’t vote for Trump, but they might stay home or vote for a left-wing third party – like the Greenies.

    Petey Boy is much farther left than most people realize. If he gets the nomination, you can bet Trump will play up racial strife during Petey’s time as mayor (to further weaken Petey Boy with black males) as well as exposing his far-left positions.

    Mini Mike – there is no way he can appeal to working class Americans. Trump will expose him as an elitist, whose goal is to control the lives of working class Americans. Because of his stature and personality, my suggestion to Mini Mike is stay home and avoid public exposure, run lots of ads with Michael Douglas telling people how wonderful you are and that “Mike will get it done.”

    Klobuchar likely has the least baggage, at least at this time. But, after New Hampshire, you can bet the Trump campaign and RNC are deep into opposition research.

    Slow Joe and Lie-A-Watha appear to be really struggling, but everyone knows what their weaknesses are.

    The Dems can’t wait for Trump to be gone so the Republicans can go back to a wuss like Romney who goes around with a “Kick Me” sign on his back.

    Elizabeth Warren’s life-story remains compelling…and is her biggest asset!

    Raised as a poor Black child on a Cherokee reservation, where she couldn’t get a job because she was pregnant, and thus was forced (against her will) to teach ONE class at Harvard for slave wages ($400 THOUSAND). What’s not to like??

    here is “Lizzie” explaining her childhood in her own words:

    Schumer wonders out loud if Trump would contemplate going after Hillary, Obama, etc

    Loved this response in the comments
    “That’s why we elected him!”

    16 – A little confusing to mention long haul while going dark, or is just to save money to draw out her campaign longer while still having funds for staff? Maybe they meant long-shot, then it makes more sense. Seems to me though she’s just getting out the of way (without saying it), which probably helps Sanders the most.

    20. Most of Pocahontas voters will givto Bernie.

    Looks like Chi-coms are finally going to start counting people who are diagnosed as having it vs confirmed or put another way people they know will test positive but were not showing signs yet so were not counted due to politics. 15k adjustment upward on infections, as we as reporting a couple hundred deaths that were not first attributed to corona. I mean I guess in some ways that’s progress. lol

    Protestor storms mini-mike stage, claims he’s trying to buy democracy.

    Well that’s nothing new mrs.protestor, but he’s definitely trying to buy the nomination and then the presidency, we’ll have to wait a bit to see if it’s gonna work though.

    btw he’s reported spent approx to 291 million, on just ads, add in all his staffers and org (which is also reportedly are paying top dollar to poach talent) and he’s probably dumped 400m already.
