Trey Gowdy: Tulsi would be strongest Democrat versus Trump
Once I was a Berniecrat--but then I grew up. People get divorced after 40 years of marriage. Why? Things change, even imperceptibly until the end of decades before the realization hits. "It just ain't so, no more"--that's a sad song, we all have sung. But some need to keep on singing, while others find alternative things to do with their time--such as other interests, often divergent from long-held earlier views.
Bernie Sanders has fought the good fight for 40+ years, steadfast in his belief that government is for the common man, not the rich man, although rich ones aren't excluded*
*Not excluding the rich necessarily produces some element of capitalism. Capitalism unfettered is a cancer. Human greed can never be exhausted. Look no further than the beloved Medusa, as I am wont to call her. She, the many-snaked headed demon, had poison enough to surround her in all directions at once--sort of like an Evil Ray, transforming all who remain exposed to become tainted with the same sort of malevolence or total unconcern. Like a heat wave causing the air to oscillate indicating motion where there is none, some foul aura exists which has totally warped one large but minority portion of American society. These are the hear no evil, see no evil, but tolerate all evils individuals who honestly think that Hillary Clinton is a person of honor. Who could be that delusional?
Donald Trump is learning on the job, but his relative inexperience will not prevent him a second term--possibly by landslide if no new wars and good economy. If there were a realistic opponent for Trump, i.e., someone who could give El Trumpo a run for the money, in my not so humble opinion, that person with the qualities adequate to beat Trump is Tulsi Gabbard. There are negatives to some of her doings but I can't help but feel that her heart is in the right place. She is strong, straight-forward and plain speaking. I have yet to hear word salad from Tulsi, though she does dodge occasional questions--but not many.
This is an opinion about which several at c99 agree in general: Tulsi is the best. To which I add: Bernie shot his shot and he is spent. He will never win because only the establishment Dems will allow one of their own. It won't be Biden. H.A. Goodman and Greg Gutfeld have independently stated within the past 2 weeks that Hilary is running again. Although famous, notoriously so, the Evil Queen wants what is rightfully hers: official resident of 1600 Pennsylvania for 8 years--or more.
The only standout in the current field, as far as stature and integrity, is Tulsi. And at this point, we get to
Trey Gowdy's implicit endorsement as Presidential opponent against Trump
The video is less than 5 minutes. I respect Gowdy's intellect and he's an independent Republican--not McConnel, not quite Freedom Caucus. I also think Gowdy is an insightful political judge.
In essence, Gowdy says the Dems have no one better than to face Trump than Tulsi. Of course, sanity will not have returned to the Demonratic party, should it continue as delusional until perhaps 2024.
