Laura Ainsworth responds to a reader comment on her “Michelle O” prediction...

From Tom:

Well, I'd prefer Biden over Michelle, but let's face it, Michelle is much better than many other Democratic candidates who are so far left they make Vladimir Illyich Lenin look right of center.

I'll gladly vote for Trump over Michelle, but at least I don't think I'll need to immediately emigrate if she's elected. Most of the others would almost guarantee commencement of the final demise of the USA.

The election will turn on the Independents. We need to make sure that the malfeasance of the Obama-legacy FBI-DOJ-CIA incumbents is out there constantly for the independents to see. The rest of us conservatives already know how President Obama's appointees bent, broke, or trashed Constitutional protections.

 

From Laura:

I’m with you on your third paragraph. But I don’t know how you reconcile what you said about President Obama’s administration with your relative lack of worry about Michelle (or Biden) being in power. Do you not think a Michelle Obama administration would bend, break and trash the Constitution every bit as much as the Barack Obama administration did? Why the heck not? And do you think our institutions will survive another such episode? I have serious doubts.

Right now, the candidates are simply “positioning” themselves within the pack, and their efforts are totally contrived, led by pollsters. For example, right now Kamala Harris is trying to distance herself somewhat –- not too much, not too little –-- from the word “socialist,” but it means nothing. This California senator would govern just as far to the left as any of the other people on that list. She supported the “Green Deal” and wants to end all private health insurance, for gosh sake. “Running to the left,” “running to the middle” --- it’s all just part of the game. I don’t care about these phony campaign messages; I just want to have an idea of what they would actually do once in office. And NONE of them would do what needs to be done for this country --- just the opposite. They would move very swiftly and aggressively in the opposite direction.

In fact, one point I made in the Michelle O piece was that EVERY potential candidate on that list would be a DISASTER policy-wise if elected. A vote for any of them is a vote for the farthest-far-left of the Democratic Party. Michelle Obama vs. Joe Biden is a non-choice; flip a coin and say your prayers, as they’re both equally bad.

Maybe the Democrats' obsessive search for a candidate of the correct race and gender is a tacit admission that they would all govern pretty much the same. As long as they’re all essentially alike when it comes to their politics, with essentially no diversity of thought, why not use racial/ethnic/gender diversity to make the call? That’s the only kind of diversity they offer voters.

The days when we could vote “for the person” are, unfortunately, over. You’re voting for the whole team, and Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer are the co-captains. The Republican team has its problems, for sure, but it’s the best option we have. There are still at least a few Republicans who care about the Constitution and the law.  The Democratic team for 2020 has got to be carried off the field on stretchers and sidelined for the rest of the season and beyond. The most important thing to keep in mind is that, practically speaking, the Democratic Party is now so far left that no candidate is better than any other. It has to be to defeated, no matter who its nominee is.

    I agree with Laura, but what has actually changed regarding "The Swamp". There has been no accountability re Clinton, et al, and only a very few firings at the Justice Dept. and FBI. President Trump cannot continue to "tote the load" with no support from Congress and the Justice Dept. We absolutely must elect people to Congress who truly represent the people in their respective districts. instead of "The Party".

    Mike,
    Ms. Ainsworth is absolutely correct and we definitely have to defeat the Liberal Socialist Democrats across the board, especially in the House and Senate and for sure we must reelect Donald Trump.

    I agree entirely with Laura, the Democrats must be defeated fully and almost permanently. Their desire to turn America into Venezuela is disgusting.

    I'm still searching for an answer to two questions;
    a) Who is being polled? I feel it must be a circle of other pollsters or the Media?
    b) Is Article IV, Section 4 of the Constitution just something for politicians to ignore or is it irrelevant?
    c) Is the media driving the Anti Trump sentiment ? Do they NOT understand that by endorsing/enabling Socialism
    they are driving nails into their Protected Status under the document they seem to ignore?
    OKAY! I lied! Three Question?

    But will it make a difference? There are too many folks out there, particularly idealistic voting age young people, who love the idea of all the freebies and have been brainwashed to hate successful people, particularly white men. Giving eighteen year olds the vote was a bad decision. Their brains have not fully developed. It is specious to believe that if you can carry a rifle and fight that you automatically are wise enough to choose leaders. The Dems don’t care how corrupt the Clintons are, or care how far left and impractical their ideas have become. They think Cortez is just the cutest thing ever. Power is all, control of the great unwashed by the elites is all. The idea that the government leaders know what is best for you in your life is all to the Dems. People, the have no respect for you or your intelligence. If you vote for them you are are validating their disrespect. Trust me, Dems in power will amass wealth and they know it, example, Berni, the Obama’s, the Clintons. Trump, the Bushes, the Reagans , the Kennedys, all came in with wealth. They didn’t need to profit from their positions.

    what has michelle done to make her eligible for President? a man pretending to be a woman? Lost her law license due to a criminal act. Married to a traitor, not an American citizen, liar and America hater? Really? Does that qualify her to be president? What has SHE/he done that proves leadership? the lunch program? My word! Are the dems really that desperate? Do we really want Barry anywhere NEAR the WH again? I don't.

    Please remind Laura that the name is Democrat Party and not democratic party. They are not at all democratic. For most people, the distinction is lost between the two words and that party is plenty happy to have it that way.

    I totally agree, the Democratic Party is so, so far to the left, they probably cannot even see to the right of anything. I do not believe Michelle O. would be any better than Obama and in fact, she would probably be worse. Sometimes women, who have an ax to grind, are far meaner and tackier than men. We do Not want her in the White House again!!

    I completely agree. I was traveling across Pennsylvania on election night 2016 and was seeing nothing but Trump signs. I crossed the state from east near Harrisburg and west across the state line heading home. I commented as such to my traveling companion. Then as nighttime fell and election results started coming in he looked at me and said "I think he's going to do it!". I've never been happier for the United States of America as that night. I was certain that the country couldn't survive another 8 years of Obama II under the criminal hands of Hillary. I'm proud that in my State of Oklahoma's 77 counties, Obama didn't carry a single county. I am convinced that Trump needs to be re-elected to place another justice on the supreme court or the left wing liberals will drag us back into the quagmire. Obama sells uranium to the Russians and Trump is accused to colluding? What a crock of chicken manure.

    I look forward to you commentary twice daily but now you have a rival. I think Laura Ainswoth is one of the brightest commentators out there and I look forward to reading her take on our world as much as J do ours.

    Remember: Michelle commented that when Obama was elected "This is the first time I have been proud of our country." In fact, the campaign managers had to pull her off the campaign because her statements were so off the wall. In my opinion, she is far worse than any democratic candidate.

  • Jeri M Kirby

    02/22/2019 02:34 PM

    I remember the very first thing I heard from Michelle, "I've never been proud to be an American", then after Obama was elected she changed her tune and said she was so proud of her husband, not America, though but during his second term she stated that she felt like she was in "prison" living in the White House that the "slaves" built. No this woman would never ever get my vote. Donald and Melanie are miles and miles above the Obama's.

  • Teddy Woodward

    02/22/2019 02:18 PM

    Is this a JOKE? Now Michelle Obama is in the Democratic OCEAN of candidates for President? How much worse can we look on the world stage than we do. Is it my imagination, or does Bernie Sanders look like he has RABIES?! I keep seeing some news show commercial with Bernie in it and it looks like ANY SECOND he's going to BURST out of the TV and go for my throat! It has become EMBARRASSING to watch this UNTALENTED, INEXPERIENCED bunch of CLOWNS telling us that THEY know the ANSWERS to our problems. BULLSHIT! Pardon my language, but HOW MUCH BLUSTER and GARBAGE do we Americans have to listen to. It is EMBARRASSING AND DISGRACEFUL. To listen to THESE PEOPLE talk about Donald Trump is UNBELIEVABLE. If he WAS the A-HOLE they all CLAIM he is, they'd be IN SHACKLES hanging upside down somewhere in the bowels of the White House. Not a bad idea, actually. Watch them kill each other over a slice of pizza. Talk about a REALITY SHOW? And WE could all BET on the WINNER! My money's on BERNIE! A WOLF would be afraid to try and take anything away from him.
    If this is the BEST the democrats can do, all I can say is CONGRATULATIONS on your SECOND TERM Mr President, you racist, sexist- what were the rest of those ENDEARING terms you used for the PRESIDENT, Bernie? ALL I HAVE TO SAY TO YOU IS GGGRRRRR!!! And MY BITE is a LOT WORSE than my BARK! PIZZA TIME, GANG! TW

    More perspicacious analogy that, sadly, will be lost on far too many. "It has to be defeated, no matter who its nominee is." As demonstrated by that last 'mid-term' election, accomplishing the 'defeat' of people NOT interested in furthering America's interests is much more a problem than it should be. Without a major reform of our FAILED education system the America as envisioned by those 'Founders' is lost, if not lost already! The 2016 presidential election was illustrative of the extent of the indoctrination, as opposed to 'education,' of America's young minds full of mush. Millions of people supported a 'convicted out of her own mouth criminal' in Clinton, and worse, gave ravenous approval to an avowed Socialist/Communist in Sanders! Those same 'young' people, even at the college educated level, can not describe for you the difference between Capitalism and Socialism. Most concerning, perhaps, those same millions believe the failure of Socialism everywhere it has been implemented is due only because it wasn't run correctly, and we 'certainly' will get it right here....

    I like your comments on the far, far left democratic party. I don't know if you have heard this before, some people think I'm wacky for saying it, we don't have a constitutional republic anymore, we have a political monarchy. Two recent statements underscore this. Rep Swalwell from California threatened legal gun owners with the heavy hand of the government. A New York rep, a black woman from New York city told some conservative people that they better fear her, or the government I can't remember the exact wording. But we are at a very critical juncture in this country. These politicians no longer respect us, they treat us like we are their employees too do with as they want. Then there is all the evidence against Hillary and the Democrats, which will never be used against them. Nobody does anything about these sanctuary states cities or counties, we the different judicial courts determining which laws are legal now, a media that is controlled by the whims of the far left, politicians openly denouncing our DULELY ELECTED PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP and nothing happens too them. I could go on, but l think you get the picture. Ballot harvesting and illegal voting will give the Democrats the power they thrust for

    Is there any fear in the camp that President Trump Might lose the election; in 2020 it scares me to think this might happen; God has helped America with the win of our President, but he ;because of the left; can do next to nothing, I don't get into all this for the most part but it scares me for my children and grandchildren, at my age i will not be around long enough to feel the full effect of the damage that will take place if the Republicans lose just thought i would throw that ? out there;

    If anyone thinks that Michelle Obama will be on the same level as Joe Biden. Thank again. Barack Obama destroyed and spent more money than any other president. The 2 of them will do even more damage than the first time. Remember, they have more experience now and have already thought about what they want and can do. Michelle, Joe, and all the far left socialist are all the same, and want to destroy all the good things that Trump has done. After Trump, we are doomed. God help us all.
