Tulsi On Point for Puerto Rico
Presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard has been joining in the protests in San Juan against the current governor of that territory, and she is calling for the governor to resign.
She sent out a number of tweets with videos, including an interview on CBSN (I assume that is CBS news online). She also breifly addresses the situation with Iran and the oil tankers.
Join me in calling on all Democrats running for President to come here to Puerto Rico and show support for our fellow Americans here who are taking a stand against corruption. We must stand up against corruption, even when that corruption is within our own ranks.
I would have liked her response on *what* she would do about Puerto Rico's situation as president to have had some specifics, which she really didn't answer. I understand that she'd need to consult with experts on the situation first (progressive experts), and that people--even presidential candidates--can't know or have thought through every situation in detail. But at least some directional specifics would have been better.
Having said that, she seems to be one of very few bringing the situation in Puerto Rico into view and is calling on the governor to resign more loudly than anyone else it seems. Joining in the protests is another good thing--I like an activist president. A leader always has to start the focus on a situation, and she is definitely shining there.
By the way, Tulsi has 435,000 followers on her Twitter account. That's a lot of eyes! Not too bad!
