Biden and the sandbag

Republicans want you to believe Biden is too old for another term. That’s doubtful, but even if true, isn’t a good enough reason to elect any Republican presently in the field. Amusingly, Republicans who question Biden’s mental faculties are complaining he outsmarted them in debt c[...]

Nikki Haley, Confederate sympathizer

Do you want someone steeped in Confederate culture to be president? Now that she’s running for the top job, she’s singing a different tune; but when she was South Carolina’s governor, Nikki Haley didn’t hesitate to pander to “Southern tradition.” I’ll explai[...]

An obscure presidential candidate you should know more about

Larry Elder is running for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination. I had to look him up. Wikipedia says (here) he’s a “right-wing political commentator and conservative talk radio host” in Los Angeles. He was on the ballot in California’s 2021 recall election against Gov. Gavin[...]

Twitter crash derails DeSantis’s campaign launch

Can any Republican win in 2024?

President Biden, who’s running for re-election, looks vulnerable. He has low approval ratings, many voters question his age, even many Democrats are leery of Kamala Harris succeeding him, and he could face an election-year recession. But you can’t ignore voters’ other choice, and t[...]

Nikki Haley would bypass courts in subway choking case

Nikki Haley, who’s running for president, announced on Fox News that New York’s governor should pardon the white man who choked a mentally-ill black subway rider to death (see story here). The case is complicated, and certainly not as simple as its component of white-on-black violence wo[...]

Nikki Haley lacks backbone to be president

Nikki Haley, the former South Carolina governor and Trump ambassador who is running for president, is a spineless blob. I previously pointed out here that she sucks up to Trump (or, more precisely, his adoring voters). This is true even though she’s challenging him for the 2024 GOP nomination.[...]

GOP candidate floats 25 voting age

GOP presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy (photo, left) “wants to raise the voting age to 25 or require ‘civic duty’ stipulations for younger voters,” Mediaite reported on May 11, 2023 (read story here). By that he means people between 18-25 either have to serve in the milit[...]

Nikki Haley won’t be president

Presidential elections are highly unpredictable, especially this far in advance (the 2024 election is still more than 18 months away), but I feel quite safe in saying the 2024 declared GOP candidate Nikki Haley will not emerge as the winner. Some of the reasons: She’s a Republican, and her par[...]
