The Perilous Quest for Just the Right Candidate by The Elephant's Child

Democrats are, as they say, up the river without a paddle. We had the interminable Democrat debates which resolved to a great lack of enthusiasm, and they finally, maybe, might have, settled on former Vice President Joe Biden. Mr. Biden has been accused of sexual abuse in his senate career at some point, by someone who had timely evidence in having told others at the time, but there are a lot of accusations of sexual abuse out there, and the “believe all women” thingy seems to have fallen by the wayside.

Of more concern is that Mr. Biden seems to be showing some signs of confusion and forgetfulness, his age is a worry (as President he would be 82), and there are questions about his son Hunter Biden’s business activity, The Democrats were alarmed by the popularity of socialist Bernie Sanders, and casting around for a better candidate. Enthusiasm for Michelle Obama. I don’t know that being married to a President is a qualification, but a wife may have learned something in the White House. Elizabeth Warren has been touted, but she has a fairly vast bunch of detractors. The idea of a woman of color seems particularly popular as it checks off the female button and the race button at the same time, and Democrats pay a lot of attention to checking off diversity buttons. That proves that they are not racist, and are indeed nice.

It seems that the Democrat convention, whenever it turns out to be, will be fairly entertaining. A former presidential advisor has suggested Hillary as the candidate with Obama as VP, but that is prohibited by the 12th amendment. A President may not serve more than two terms, and anyone ineligible to be president is also ineligible for the Vice Presidency. Republicans are inclined to choose someone who has clear ideas about what he (or she) wants to accomplish for the United States of America. Democrats want to check off diversity buttons, to prove once again that they are nice, and not racist.

Democrats are trying desperately to prove that President Trump has somehow messed up with his Covid-19 efforts, but Democrat Governors are clearly not doing well with their decisions, and the locked-down people are getting more than restless. People want and need to go back to work. Too many people simply do not have a financial cushion to carry them over, and are facing going to food banks that are unprepared for that kind of rush.

President Trump seems to have done a quite remarkable job, especially in shutting down immigration from China early on, fulfilling the needs of Governors around the country, and coming up with supplies where they were needed. The Democrat Media is working hard at trying to discredit his every move, which leads to President Trump’s need to extol his accomplishments, which in turn is demonized by the Democrat Media.
