The DNC’s Trump Derangement Syndrome Has Been the Problem All Along



On a grander scale than ever before, we’re witnessing the fact that the Democrats can never keep their internal messes internal. They’re the diarrhetic Irish Wolfhound of politics, getting the smelly problem everywhere. Again, it has been super fun watching them fall apart for the last week and a half, but that doesn’t exactly balance the scales for what they’ve inflicted upon the country to get to this point.

Full disclosure: I didn’t see the interview with Stephanopoulos. This script doesn’t have a lot of twists in it — I don’t need to watch every episode. The reactions by his fellow Dems to everything that Joe Biden does now are what’s most entertaining anyway, like this post that Matt wrote about the looks on the ABC panel’s faces when the camera cut to them as soon as the interview was over.

As the Mastercard commercials are fond of saying: priceless.

The big-money players in American politics often prefer to stay in the background, only coming out for private fundraising soirees. They’ve been weighing in from all corners during the meltdown, however. This is from something else that Matt wrote over the weekend:

In 2020, many speculated that Joe Biden was merely a Trojan Horse candidate, chosen for his “electability” to secure a Democratic victory and then, after a period of time, step aside for his running mate to take over. Few really expected that he would last a full term, let alone seek a second. Heck, after his botched withdrawal from Afghanistan, it seemed more likely than ever. But that’s not what happened, and you can bet that many Democrats were disappointed when, in April of last year, he put all speculation to rest and announced he was seeking a second term.

While this made for interesting speculation from the right, the left has generally given the impression that they were all in for Joe Biden. Yet, according to Don Peebles, a big Obama donor, the speculation was right. He told  Fox News’ Will Cain that the Democrat donor class expected Biden to only be a one-term president.

“The expectation for most of the Democratic fundraising community was the president Biden was going to do one term and move on,” he said. “And, and Harris was going to learn to be president. And, and that is why he got support from a broad spectrum of Democratic fundraisers and Democratic leaders.”

Because everything seems longer in Biden time, the beginning of 2021 feels like it was a couple of decades ago. I don’t remember exactly how long I thought that Biden would remain in office, but I’m pretty certain I thought he’d at least wait two years so that Kamala Harris would have a shot at a 10-year run. There were, however, a lot of conservatives who were convinced that he would step aside some time during the first year.

For most of my forty years of political activism, the Democrats were the party that was good at playing the long game. Anyone who has ever voted Republican in more than one election knows that the GOP can barely pay attention to the election in front of them, let alone four or five cycles in the future.

I grudgingly but frequently gave the Dems respect for how well they could plot the future.

The people in charge of the Democratic National Committee seem to have been among the many on the Left who were thoroughly broken by Donald Trump’s election in 2016. The DNC went into full panic mode in order to get him out of office, and really didn’t think much past the 2020 election.

The scenario that Peebles described always did make the most since. The pre-2016 DNC was a well-oiled machine that would have made sure it played out that way.

As I wrote many times in the first year that Biden was in office, it was difficult to tell from the Democrats’ behavior that they had achieved their ONE BIG GOAL in the 2020 election. Trump took up immediate rent-free residence in their heads, and they were miserable.

The Demon-Rats are on pins and needles their nervous and it getting worst for them and the M.S. Media Bottom Feeders

IF Kamala had been teachable the scenario had been that joe would step aside either after two years and one day – so she could finish his term (proving how wonderful she was) – OR he would have shown how well trained to be president she was so she could run now.
BUT Kamala is not teachable.
She’s an idiot who got where she is via the “heel’s up,” route.

democrats have a kamala problem. The democrat intelligentsia knows biden cannot defeat President Trump. And, they are running out of time if they decide to pull the trigger and remove joe. Replacing joe, however they would accomplish that, would surely remove kamala from the ticket. Joe told the democrat congressional group in a letter this morning he was still in the race. The blowback from the black community as well as the democrat primary voters who voted for joe, will crush their get out the vote if joe is removed.
Their weak replacement bench presently, newsome and whitmer, are polling less than biden/harris together. Should they revert back the the 2020 steal option, too much of America is on to them and would not accept another stolen election.
The democrats wagon is hitched to a horse that will never get them to the gold rush.

I wonder why they intentionally sabotaged Kamala by putting her in charge of the disaster at the border, something they had no intention of fixing?

biden in his present capacity has no business being CIC. He is not fit to run a lemonade stand.
