Democrats said Trump's candidacy was a publicity stunt to boost ratings of 'The Apprentice,' that he would not win a primary, the nomination, or the election. He did. They said he would not last six months, one year, midterms. He did. They said that Russia, Russia, Russia, urine tapes, Stormy, Avenatti, Cohen, Manafort would bury him. He's still here. They said the Mueller Report would take him down. He's still here. Who's Mueller? A has-been war hero. So was Benedict Arnold. Now they have had impeachment. He's still here.
Are they tired of losing, yet? Have they put up a candidate who at least can best his popularity rating, low as it is. No, After four years [this began long before his inauguration], Democrats can't even do that outside of margin of error.
One must admit that the campaign run by the Democrats in 2016 was just the beginning of the humor. I mentioned the irony of their candidate, challenging her opponent to accept the results of the election. She was so confident that she should have been 50 points ahead, no less. Then, she lost to him by an Electoral College landslide of 20 states, and the entire Party, including Ms. Clinton, could not meet the challenge of acceptance. That’s not just poking fun; that’s fact supporting the claim that Democrats do not have a valid argument in their platform because they are just tired.
A tired platform
The fact is, on the Democrat webpage, the party platform is still from 2016. Tired. Before my opponent declares that the same is the result on the Republican Party site, let’s recall which Party won the 2016 election, and is in the Oval, continuing to meet the promises made in their 2016 platform. Elections have consequences, they say. One is to maintain a successful course already set. The fact is, regardless of all the bluster, and to recall a 1995 movie, The American President, we can quote from the character, President Andrew Shepherd, allowing for poetic license to update the times and the candidates, “This is a time for serious people, [Joe, Bernie], and your fifteen minutes are up. My name is [Donald Trump], and I am the President.”
Meanwhile, the Democrats are desperately in need of another revision of “Hope and Change.” It seems it is past time to get up and fly a platform flag rather than merely fly a tired wish balloon that Trump is not the “legitimate” President.
A tired candidate
The Democrats began preparations for the 2020 election by presenting a diverse quorum of some 25 potential candidates. The Party made explicit declarations early in the campaign that diversity in the presidential candidate choice was essential to their success in 2020.,  Where are they, now, just four months from the Party Convention in Milwaukee? While a woman remains in the contest to exhibit a modicum of diversity, Tulsi Gabbard, she polls at 1%, does not qualify to participate in the remaining primary debate[s?], and has to her credit a total of two delegates. Two formidable candidates remain, Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders. Two old white guys, precisely what the Party did not want to select as the nominee. And one of them is so tired; he wants to sit for the upcoming debate. How tired is that?
A tired message
What has been the Democrat message since the Trump election in November 2016? Well, DNC Chair, Tom Perez, said it best: “[Trump] doesn’t give a shit about health care.” “They [Republicans] call it a skinny budget. I call it a shitty budget” And, finally, Perez qualified the Party’s 2020 effort: “Democrats give a shit about people.” Only, it seems the Party is too tired to carry that entire mantra. They dropped the article, ‘a,’ and everything thereafter. And they have been giving the same old, tired potty talk ever since. How funny is that? How tired is that?
I apologize for the profanity, hoping that in merely quoting the Party line, the offense was already given. It is not my line.
