Video || Buttigieg Won’t Say That Pro-Life People Should Be Permitted in the Democratic Party

And this is the supposed moderate in the race.

Watch as Pete Buttigieg bobs and weaves in order to avoid answering the question about whether someone who is pro-life has a place in the Democratic Party, continually answering a different question than the one that was asked.

It’s intolerance masked as reasonableness. It’s also admittedly what he has to do to be a viable candidate in today’s Democratic Party.

Bloomberg in Fourth Place, Up to 10% in New Poll of Democrats

Yes Paul, money can buy you love.

According to the Morning Consult:

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg rises to 10% nationally, leading former Mayor Pete Buttigieg by 2 points and trailing Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) by 5 points. Although he was not on the January debate stage, his net favorability has risen to +31, an increase of 8 points, following the debate last week.

Democratic primary voters’ perception of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) took a dive amid his clash with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) over whether he said a woman cannot win the presidency. His net favorability fell 6 points since before his clash with Warren, though there was no movement in his overall first-choice support.

She says he told her a woman couldn’t win the presidency. He says he never said it. So, someone is lying.

I’d lean toward the person who is angrier about the situation as the one telling the truth. But who knows?

CNN debate moderator Abby Philips, though, presumed that he did say it, despite his denial.

UDPATE: Here is audio of their encounter:

Warren: Bernie Told Me a Woman Can’t Win the Presidency

Well, there you go. The hammers and sickles are out as the two lefists in the Democratic field try to slay each other.

Warren is desperate, given that Sanders is pulling away from her in polls as the Democratic base goes with the tried-and-true lefty.

Earlier today, Sanders denied a report that he had told Warren that a woman could not beat President Trump. Now Warren herself is saying, while of course trying to pretend she wants to be nice.

From a statement by Warren:

Bernie and I met for more than two hours in December 2018 to discuss the 2020 election, our past work together and our shared goals: beating Donald Trump, taking back our government from the wealthy and well-connected, and building an economy that works for everyone.

Among the topics that came up was what would happen if Democrats nominated a female candidate. I thought a woman could win; he disagreed. I have no interest in discussing this private meeting any further because Bernie and I have far more in common than our differences on punditry.

We have been friends and allies in this fight for a long time, and I have no doubt we will continue to work together to defeat Donald Trump and put our government on the side of the people. 

Trump Mocks Cory Booker for Dropping Out

In case you had not heard the news, the agony of watching Cory Booker campaign for president is over.

He falls in the category of manchildren, along with Beto O’Rourke, who were never suited to the presidency, something Democrat voters perceived. And because expectations for both were so high, and they did so poorly, they likely will never run for president again.

At least Booker holds his Senate seat. O’Rourke could not get elected to any office in Texas, I don’t think, at least not statewide, after threatening to raid everyone’s gun safes.

Anyway, President Trump had a little fun with Cory.

Trump’s Killing of Soleimani Could Secure his Reelection

It’s not just that President Trump killed a man who was responsible for the deaths of hundreds of Americans and who was fomenting terrorism throughout the Middle East.

That’s pretty good right there.

But think about it. Trump’s handling of this entire situation is everything his supporters say he is, and everything his opponents say he is not.

Trump backers will recognize a very strong and decisive action by a very strong and decisive leader. He did something neither George W. Bush nor Barack Obama would do in killing a major terrorist and threat to the United States. I’d be surprised if whoever replaces Soleimani has the same capability to advance the Iranian agenda.

What’s more, the feared consequences did not materialize. Iran essentially put its tail between its legs. It knows Trump is not Obama, and that if they waged a major response, Trump would retaliate massively.

And yet, Trump’s opponents say he is not a statesman, he does not wield a steady hand, and cannot be trusted to run the country wisely.

And yet, he did not overreact to Iran’s pinprick response. He recognized weakness for what it was, and chose not to further exacerbate the situation. The major conflagration that was widely feared never happened, and that should be very reassuring to those voters on the fence about Trump who might hesitate to support him because they fear he is erratic.

This is a major achievement Trump can take to the bank. He should and will run on it, and it will help him at least as much as killing Osama bin Laden — a far easier decision — helped Obama.

Trump Campaign Bans Bloomberg News

Bloomberg is refusing to investigate either its owner, Michael Bloomberg, or the other Democratic candidates. But it will continue to go after President Trump and his campaign. So Trump banned them, at least from the campaign. Even some at Bloomberg must be in shock that they are being banned from investigating the Democratic candidates. “This… Continue Reading

Washington Post: Trump Electoral College Advantage May be Deepening

Huh? Washington Post? Here’s the logic, which the Post must have found truly inescapable to present it. Or at the very least, they felt they needed to raise the alarm. According to the piece: The big gubernatorial victories in Kentucky and Louisiana has unleashed optimism in the Democratic Party. They underscored the story we’ve seen again and… Continue Reading

Biden Can’t Defend Himself as He Gets Heat at His Own Rally

Biden just looks like a tired old man here. All he wants to do is deport people who have committed felonies, but his audience thinks even that is going too far. I love when Democrats have to deal with the crazy people among their constituents. Elizabeth Warren has the same problem during one of her… Continue Reading
