You so often hear about a “schism” within the Republican Party between the establishment and constitutional conservatives. You hear far less about the schism within the Democrat party. Just look at the treatment self-proclaimed conservative Blue Dog Democrat Henry Cuellar (D-Tx) received at the hands of the Obama administration. As well, he was publicly rebuked by the Congressional Hispanic Caucus whose leader stated Cuellar did not speak for them — a more progressive group.
The Hillary Express may just be derailed because the liberal progressive socialist Left wants one of their own.
According to the Washington Post a number of ambitious Democrats are jockeying for position. First at the gate? Senator Elizabeth Warren, who last week gave a “fiery sermon for economic populism — “The game is rigged, and it isn’t right!” — where scores of swooning supporters wore faux-straw boater hats with “Warren for President” stickers and chanted, “Run, Liz, run!”
We’ve opined here about a potential Senator Warren candidacy because there is a powerful segment – really the controlling segment — of the Democrat party that wants more Far Left solutions in America. This side sees Elizabeth Warren as the heir apparent to Barack Hussein Obama, who many on the Far Left believe hasn’t gone far enough — talk about crazy.
Of course, Senator Warren says she’s not interested — don’t be fooled. We saw in 2008 the liberal progressive Left pull the rug from under Hillary Rodham Clinton for a more “charismatic” progressive socialist in Barack Hussein Obama. What does concern the lefties is that they don’t see Hillary Clinton as being true to their ideological dogma which is rooted in the themes of Karl Marx, Friedrich Engels, and Saul Alinsky – as a matter of fact, they see her as being way too close to the hated Wall Street one-percenters (and given her six-figure income, she’s one her self). The question is, will the liberal media once again assist in propping up and feeding the American electorate heavy doses of Warren — as they did Obama – ad nauseum?
It’s my belief that Democrats hope to run another “political gimmick” candidate like the first woman president — the question is who? Or perhaps they’ll Unless they’ll shift and run Julian Castro as the first Hispanic president, unless positioning him as Secretary of Housing and Urban Development is a seasoning move.
The Washington Post says “In stark contrast to the overt maneuvering on the Republican side, the 2016 Democratic presidential sweepstakes has been largely frozen in place as Clinton decides whether to run. But with the former secretary of state’s book-tour stumbles exposing a serious vulnerability with grass-roots voters, small cracks are beginning to emerge. Sen. Amy Klobuchar (Minn.) will test her folksy politics next month in Iowa, home to the first-in-the-nation caucuses. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.) is coming out this fall with a book, “Off the Sidelines,” that is part political memoir, part modern-feminist playbook and certain to generate presidential buzz.”
New York Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo is also publishing a memoir this fall titled All Things Possible and there’s even some buzz circulating around current California Governor, Jerry Brown. I hate to tell these fellas, they are just plain ol’ white guys, who come from states that are bleeding populations due to their failing economic growth policies. And that also goes for Maryland’s Governor Martin O’Malley whose state couldn’t even get the Obamacare website to work.
And for real entertainment, Vice President Biden is making the rounds this summer. The Post says, “during a recent vacation in Kiawah Island, S.C., Biden reconnected with old political friends. He played golf with Dick Harpootlian, a former state party chairman, who suggested that Biden is far more “authentic” than Clinton. Biden also appearaed at the Netroots Nation gathering where Warren spoke, but it would be a sea change if Democrats decided to run the “old white guy.
Of course the $64,000 question is who will Barack “Flexibility” Obama support? Then again, that means making a decision and not voting “present” — ya think he can? Obama will want someone to ride his wave (such as it is) and continue to support his failed liberal progressive policies, not roll them back.
Which one of these individuals will wholeheartedly embrace the Obama agenda, including the failed Pax Obama foreign and national security policy. And if were Vladimir Putin, Xi Jinping, Hasan Rouhani or Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi I would be seriously cheering for an Elizabeth Warren — actually, I’m quite sure they’re cheering for any of these aforementioned possibilities. Is there any question why we see international chaos in Obama’s second term? After all, they got a green light — flexibility.
Yes, it looks like a Hillary Rodham Clinton Democrat coronation is not a fait accompli — there will be a Democrat primary, unless that powerful Clinton machine, Chicago-style, makes folks an offer they can’t refuse. Welcome to the Democrat Hunger Games — “and may the odds be forever in your favor.”
