It is hard to believe that in a year and a half America will have another Presidential Election.
The Citizen Statesman who presently occupies the Oval Office has been thinking about whom his opponent in the 2020 Presidential Election night be.
FoxNews.com reports that
President Trump offered his thoughts Tuesday night on which two Democratic contenders he thinks will be left standing in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary.
Out of the crowded pool of contenders, Trump predicted on Twitter that former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders will be the final two in the battle to be the party’s nominee.
“I believe it will be Crazy Bernie Sanders vs. Sleepy Joe Biden as the two finalists to run against maybe the best Economy in the history of our Country (and MANY other great things)!” he wrote. “I look forward to facing whoever it may be. May God Rest Their Soul!”
While Sanders, I-Vt., confirmed in February that he would be running again for president, Biden has yet to formally enter the race.
The president’s prediction came after he targeted Sanders in a separate tweet, speaking about the lawmaker’s finances.
“Bernie Sanders and wife should pay the Pre-Trump Taxes on their almost $600,000 in income,” Trump wrote. “He is always complaining about these big TAX CUTS, except when it benefits him. They made a fortune off of Trump, but so did everyone else – and that’s a good thing, not a bad thing!”
Shortly ahead of a Fox News town hall Monday night, Sanders’ presidential campaign released his 2018 returns. According to the figures, Sanders and his wife Jane paid a 26 percent effective tax rate on $561,293 in income, and made more than $1 million in both 2016 and 2017. Nearly $400,000 of his income last year came from book sales.
Sanders later fired back at the president for his remarks, tweeting that Trump seemed “scared of our campaign.”
“He should be,” he continued.
Let’s face it. The Democrats have nobody.
Bernie’s an old Communist and Biden’s an old lech who is a couple of fires short of a happy meal.
If they are the Democrat Front Runners, then the 2020 Presidential Election is over before it begins, especially if the Thursday reveal of the redacted Mueller Report turns out to be as big a nothingburger as is predicted.
This whole scenario is reminiscent of the Presidential Election held on November 6, 1984, in which Republican President Ronald Reagan was elected to a second term, defeating Democrat Walter Mondale, a former U.S. vice president. The Gipper won 49 states en route to amassing 525 electoral votes to Mondale’s 13, one of the biggest landslides in U.S. election history.
Reagan accomplished this historic feat despite the fact that the 1984 Presidential Election was the first time a major party had a woman on its ticket – Geraldine Ferraro, Mondale’s running mate.
Even if Crazy Bernie and Sleepy Joe were to run together, all the Democrats would have would be a pair of Veteran Professional Politicians from the Northeast.
Mondale was a Former Vice-President and U.S. Senator from Minnesota.
Are you beginning to see why this possible scenario reminds me of 1984, gentle readers?
You have a sitting President who communicates directly to the American people, bypassing the Main Stream Media, who has accomplished a great deal so far in his presidency while attempting to keep his Campaign Promises.
And, he has done all of this while working against a hostile MSM.
Sound familiar? It does if you were alive to experience it in the 1980s, like I was.
On the Democratic side, you have one candidate who is a walking gaffe machine, while the other one wants the Americans who do all of the hiring (“the wealthy”) to pay a 52% tax rate in order to fund his plan to turn America into Socialist Paradise.
Those guys will be about as popular in America’s Heartland as the Queen of Mean, Hillary Clinton, was in 2016.
If these guys are the best that the Democrats can offer, Trump should easily be re-elected, just as President Reagan was.
Of course, the Professional Political Pundits and the Democrat-weighted polls will disagree with me if either of these guys are nominated.
However, I will take my chances.
After all, if they were as smart as they claim to be, Hillary Clinton would be President.
Until He Comes,
