How to Blow an Election

State of the union Biden

Boy oh boy, the Neo Con Democratic Party sure knows how to dismantle things. Think of this: They had the right wing Republicans on their heels with the Dobbs decision on abortion. Probably hundreds of millions of American women had a genuine ‘ Tissy Fit’ over their right to choose abortion or not. Many of those women happen to have been Republican supporters for years. Remember that these are women who can easily be mothers and grandmothers of women, especially younger women, who may have to face the fact of an unexpected pregnancy. Then we have the orange haired clown who just let the cat out of the bag about ‘ Keeping Medicare and Social Security cuts ON the table’. Yes, the big mouth clown actually said it. Obviously, keeping ‘ Sleepy Joe’ on top of the ticket was and IS a major error by that Neo Con party. So, what did his ‘Ear whisperers AKA Handlers’ do? Watch and listen to this feeble man entering the stage last Monday and giving his ‘ Misstate of the Union’ speech. Of all the cogent issues he could have began his address with, this fool decided to go after ‘ Putin, the next Hitler’ and our undying ( as they continue to die) support for the Neo Nazi influenced Ukrainian government.

Of course, next on Sleep Joe’s agenda ( or what his ear whisperers direct him) was our, once again Undying support for genocide driven, Fascist run Zionist Israel. As if those Zionist bullies running that country have anything to do with the mega millions of Jewish folks not only in their country, but worldwide who do not agree with them. The Neo Con Democrats are lucky on this one, electorally, because their ‘ friends across the aisle’ feel the same way. As with Ukraine, the War Lobby just loves selling all kinds of weaponry to the Israelis. Money talks and both parties walk the same walk when it comes to this empire. Remember that both the Orange Clown and Sleepy Joe supported our illegal and immoral invasion and occupation of Iraq.

As a student of thoroughbred racing and a pretty decent handicapper, indulge me. All the Democrats needed to do ( and Sleepy Joe made the point in 2000 himself) was have him announce perhaps two years into his term that he would not be seeking re-election in 2024. Then they could have gotten an attractive candidate like the California Governor, Newsome, or a well liked and well spoken Senator like Sherrod Brown of Ohio ( in a major ‘ Swing State’ by the way) to carry the mantle. Only a jackass ( sorry, that is your party) would wish to stick with Biden. All this does is give the Orange Clown more traction. Couple this foolishness with the damn stupidity of creating a new Cold War with Russia and China, and of course spending billions for Ukraine from our tax money and… God forbid! Can anyone who really cares about us working stiffs imagine if Trump gets in office again? I mean, the ‘ Lesser of two evils’ argument was never to my liking, but this gets real scary folks.
