Will America drink the Kool-Aid?
America could have light rail from coast to coast, national bankruptcy and the pride that comes with knowing our president wouldn't be where he is today without electoral fraud committed by Jim "Communist Child-Killer" Jones.
It's almost enough to make you ask Obama to stay on for a third term.
Here straight from the alternative reality of the Los Angeles Times is the political candidacy of Jerry Brown.
If he weren’t the nation’s oldest governor, a ripe 75, Jerry Brown would automatically be counted among serious Democratic candidates for president in 2016.
Listing serious Democratic candidates for 2016 without listing Jerry Brown is like drinking Kool Aid without first lacing it with potassium cyanide.
He boasts a household name, an impressive list of accomplishments in the country’s most populous state — a state some once deemed ungovernable — glowing national media coverage and a deep familiarity with the pitfalls and rigors of a White House bid, having run three times before.
Translating from progressive Newspeak to reality, he governs a bankrupt state, he's known nationally as Governor Moonbeam, he failed three times before... and the media loves him.
Come on down, Jerry Brown.
“I think Jerry is precisely what America needs,” said Rose Ann DeMoro, the leader of a national nurses union and a strong political ally of Brown. “He has the courage of his convictions, which we haven’t seen in a very long while.”
Jerry has the courage to give the nurses union and every union all the money it wants... even if the money doesn't exist. Only Jerry Brown has the courage to bankrupt California.
Brown, who is up for reelection in 2014, has not yet stated his intention to seek another term, though he has raised millions of dollars for what would appear to be an easy campaign.
Unless... someone runs against him.
All the California papers are saying that Jerry Brown is bound to win. "Jerry Brown's re-election a virtual lock" the San Francisco Chronicle declares.
Why? Because he has an approval rating of 58 percent. And an incredible 52 percent of those surveyed would vote for him.
Republicans shouldn't even bother running against him because there is no way he could lose. Jerry Brown should instead focus on his presidential campaign. He could run on a platform of letting men in dresses use womens' bathrooms and a light rail train to nowhere.
The famously Delphic governor often leaves people guessing about his motivation and intentions, which leaves plenty of leeway ahead of 2016. Absent a clear-cut statement of disinterest from Brown — who sought the White House in 1976, 1980 and 1992 — some see familiar signs of a presidential-candidate-in-waiting.
Were those the same people who thought that Elizabeth Warren, who made her cash and connections from the Clintons, would stab Hillary in the back and run?
“Things happen in California that are not happening in Washington,” Brown said during an October appearance at an electric-vehicle expo in San Francisco. “We can do a lot of things in California to shift the [political] climate throughout the whole country.”
Like let in more illegal aliens. And force people to buy more electric cars.
In a victory lap a few weeks later, he traveled to the nation’s capital and ticked off the bills he had signed, including immigration-friendly legislation and laws promoting green energy. “We didn’t wait for the federal government,” he crowed.
Neither did his pal, Jim Jones.
For now, California is drinking Jerry Brown's Kool-Aid. At least 58 percent of Californians are.
“Every move he’s making is the move of a presidential candidate,” said Ralph Nader, the consumer advocate, who has run several times himself and would like to see Brown make another try for the White House in two years. “It’s almost a blueprint.”
Brown/Nader 2016. America deserves full Communism.
Brown was the last Democrat standing in the 1992 race against Bill Clinton, and their competition grew unusually personal and nasty, heightening the drama of a prospective 2016 campaign.
Brown repeatedly attacked Clinton’s character and ethics, took after Hillary Rodham Clinton for her work with a prominent Arkansas law firm while her husband was governor — ”You ought to be ashamed of yourself,” Bill Clinton said in a finger-wagging debate exchange — and carried his fight to the party’s national convention long after it was clear Clinton would be the nominee.
But there's no sign that the rivalry is still going on. Or that Jerry Brown would run just to spite Hillary.
“I want to see more competition,” said Nader, who opposes Clinton’s nomination for its dynastic overtones, among other reasons. “Let a hundred flowers bloom.”
And let a hundred bees flock to them.
