5 Reasons Why Stacey Abrams Would
Be A Risky VP Choice For Joe Biden

Original Article

Former Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams is pitching herself as a potential running mate for former Vice President Joe Biden. Though Abrams has benefited from fawning media praise, selecting her would come with its downsides for Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee. Here are five reasons why Abrams would be a risky choice. Abrams has never been elected to an office higher than Georgia state representative, serving as minority leader in the state legislature — and she doesn’t even hold that office at the current moment.

could a physically repulsive, low achieving minor politician snare a VP nomination from Old Jo because of her plumbing and skin color? Yes. And while it won't happen in my lifetime, the dimocrat party will likely die in the not too distant future, landing in the dustbin of history because of its own death wish. A Biden-Abrams ticket would accelerate that process. a political party has to successfully reconcile differences between its members, and the dimocrats used to be masterful in doing that. but the dissonant voices have become too loud. There is no room for 'deplorables' as Hillary Clinton labeled us. Better to be a purist and a loser than survive as a party seems to be the dimocrat way. The Bernie Sanders supporters will not lie down in 2020 the way they did at 2016. And if there is no national convention except on some website, they will take their protests to the street, in nasty ways. (I could be completely wrong, but that is unlikely.) just about any sentient dimocrat would be a better choice than Stacey.

Allow me to add reason #6. Considering aircraft safety and the concepts of CG (Center of Gravity), Center of Lift (CL), moment arm, and All Up Weight (AUW), she could not be safely transported on any known aircraft. Although the newly-modified C-5M does have better engines, and might be able to transport one Abrams a short distance...

The ongoing ethics investigations should be enough to put her out of the running but who are we kidding? Since when does that matter to Democrats? More like a badge of honor, in reality. I'm already sick of hearing about her, but I lived in Atlanta during the election...right by her campaign headquarters to be precise. I've been sick of her for a very long time.

On one side she checks the black and females boxes but on the other, her personal problems are made up of everything we hate in democrat politicians, debt, entitlement, false confidence, and an ego built upon weak talents that would rival Michelle Obama's. A person like Stacey inheriting the Presidence would be a bigger mistake than Joe Biden himself and he's no prize.

I do not believe any democrat should be on any ballot for anything. If we have learned one thing it is that the democrats are the party of fascism. This particular angry woman should never ever be in any position of power. Democrats are toxic to freedom. They are the party of tyranny. Myriad of examples are on display as we witness governors and mayors respond to this crisis with draconian measures designed to take away our God given freedoms.

#12 Freedom-loving patriots have been telling their children that government is evil for as long as I can remember while people like Abrams are counseled to gravitate towards HR positions which allow them to shape the government we’ve come to despise. I don’t want to give away too much information but can assure you that people like Abrams run every institution that has become progressively worse. Their idea of “leadership” is to strip wypipo of everything and they are winning.

Given the suspect condition of the Dem nominee and his ability of making cognitive decisions past his inauguration, I doubt this will help to have a political novice with nothing but a baiting personality and only experience having won a local state legislative district. His VP will need to “Appear” to assure the voters that they could step in to be president on day one. Not sure there is anyone that will fit this criteria, this particular individual couldn’t be further from that perception.

The Democrat party panders to Blacks to get their votes, nothing more; when their real opinion of them is bigoted and racial. If Abrams was electable, they would have her on the ticket, but she carries way too much baggage to add anything to Biden's campaign, which is already on life support.

Well, when Joe was a professor at the University of Pennsylvania, he prayed to the thing and heard FDR’s voice from his new internet connection is his rec room, say, “I did some things during WW2 so you need to pick a smart woman of color and the only one who fits that bill is Carol Channing.” So I’m pretty sure it won’t be Stacey. Joe’s picking Carol.

Poster #2 says "could a ... low achieving minor politician snare a VP nomination from ... because of her [his] plumbing and skin color?" It occurs to me that I bet a lot of people on the flip side of Dan Quayle's race and gender might have felt the same way about him. Dan Quayle was selected. Donald Trump was elected. We live in interesting times. So I say Don't Think that a Stacy Abrams Vice Presidency Couldn't Happen, or even that a Michelle Obama presidency for that matter. Stay vigilant and make sure to vote. Let's not get complacent.

First off, she brings nothing to the table other than hatred for America in general and whites in particular and the Democrat party already has a lock on that. Plus, she has too much baggage and not enough boxes checked off. Just black and a woman. And she won't deliver Georgia. Kamala Harris, however, could bring in more than just California and most of her problems are really assets for Joe. Same thing with Kate Brown of Oregon. Openly admitted bisexual, huge greenie and a total nut job --- but calmer than old Stacey. Or he could take Senator Tammy Duckworth the half-Asian (Thailand) from Illinois who was a lieutenant colonel and flew combat helicopters. BTW --- After the "convention" the Dem rules say the POTUS candidate can be removed for cause (serial molester) or necessity (senile old bat) and the Veep candidate does not move up! The state committees get to pick another POTUS candidate ... without the trouble of a convention. Thus, you could end up with Andy Cuomo and Kamala Harris.

So, let's see if I have this correct. The 'rats think this woman, who has held exactly one elective office, and not even a state wide office but was just a state representative, is experienced enough to be the vice-president. But, another woman, who was the mayor of a city, on the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, (where she exposed corruption and two fellow commissioners resigned) and then was elected governor of the state but the 'rats thought she was too stupid to be the vice-president? What's wrong with this picture? Oh, I know. one woman is black and the other woman is white. Guess racism is alive and well in the 'rat party.

WASHINGTON – The US government will cap how much each bank can lend under the emergency loan program designed to keep workers on payrolls amid the coronavirus pandemic, according to a memo seen by Reuters hours ahead of the reopening of the lending program. The Small Business Administration (SBA) will impose a maximum dollar amount for individual lenders at 10% of Paycheck Protection Program funding authority and pace the applications filed, according to the memo. The steps are “prudent and reasonable” due to the unprecedented demand for the loans, it said.

It’s hard to know how much money Congress has forked out to combat coronavirus and attempt to salvage the American way of life and the economy since late February. There’s no precise, econometric way to calculate the “three-and-a-half” bills Congress has approved in recent weeks. But, the grand total is pushing $3 trillion. The measures have varied from an initial bill costing $8 billion – which started around $1.2 billion – and exploding to a staggering $2.2 trillion on another. Now, the real action is set to begin on Capitol Hill – at least behind the scenes. Democrats already have been calling for more as Republicans try tapping the brakes.

Not content to accuse Donald Trump of killing Americans with his incompetence during the coronavirus pandemic, Democrats and their allies in the media have turned their fire on the president’s supporters as well. Those with “blood on their hands,” to use the smear du jour, range from Republican governors reluctant to issue quarantine orders to Michigan autoworkers protesting being locked out their jobs. And, of course, Fox News. The latest salvo came in the form of a New York Times column with a blaring headline: “A Beloved Bar Owner Was Skeptical About the Virus. Then He Took a Cruise.”

The Supreme Court on Friday denied a request to block the Trump administration's "public charge" rule during the coronavirus health crisis. A group of state attorneys general had asked the court to issue an injunction against the rule, which links a migrant's eligibility for legal status with the likelihood that he or she will rely on public assistance. The court had decided earlier this year to allow the rule to go into effect, but the group of state officials, led by New York Attorney General Letitia James (D), had asked the justices to revisit the decision in light of the ongoing pandemic. The court did not publish an opinion on its decision

Beyond Cuomo, this includes the likes of New Jersey’s Phil Murphy, Connecticut’s Ned Lamont, Pennsylvania’s Tom Wolf, Michigan’s Gretchen Whitmer, and Virginia’s Ralph Northam. As for Cuomo, I noted that few Americans have battled the virus quite like the governor of New York. I noted that I feel for him. I also said that I wish he would fight to stop the loss of innocent life from abortion. He has done just the opposite. In January 2019, a year before COVID-19 swept New York,

White House coronavirus response coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx defended President Trump in an interview on "Watters' World" that aired Saturday, saying the president meant no harm by inquiring about using disinfectant to possibly treat coronavirus. Trump, in his White House coronavirus task force briefing Thursday, appeared to suggest that light and disinfectants, respectively, might have the potential to treat the coronavirus -- prompting a number of stories condemning the comments, others seeking to defend the president and a scathing tweet from presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. The president has since said he was being "sarcastic" with his comments.

If you've tried to buy frozen french fries at the supermarket -- any brand, any flavor -- you were probably confronted with empty shelves in the store freezer. Why that's so is a tale of supply and demand, and how the U.S. food supply chain is so vulnerable to disruptions. It's especially perplexing because potato farmers are plowing under thousands of tons of potatoes because they can't sell them and buyers have no place to put them. The problem is that schools, restaurants, and large companies who make up the bulk of frozen french fry orders in the country are closed

There will likely be a reopening of our economy on the very near horizon. And this reopening will be much sooner rather than later, with full acceleration within just a few months, perhaps even weeks. Here’s why. Problematic coronavirus testing issues may fast disappear as critical preconditions to reopening the economy. Testing issues won’t go away; they are simply likely to be left largely unresolved. In addition, new reports suggest that infections may be much, much more widespread than most had thought, which, in turn, means that there is a strong likelihood that we have much, much lower death rates from the coronavirus in all age groups.

We all deserve protection from the coronavirus, which is now our nation’s second-leading cause of death. To get it, we must cooperate and make sacrifices. Our culture has a wonderful way of taking controversial or partisan figures and weaving them into the broader story of America. When Abraham Lincoln was assassinated, for example, his secretary of war, Edwin Stanton, purportedly said, “Now he belongs to the ages,” which was a way of saying that the battles Lincoln fought and the leadership he provided would stay with us and shape the nation going forward.

About Those Press Conferences 46 replies
Posted by sagman 4/26/2020 9:00:19 PM Post Reply
President Trump seems increasingly ambivalent about the utility of the daily and sometime marathon press conferences. He should be — and for reasons besides just their length and frequency. First, Trump gets bogged down into long, back-and-forth jousts with the touché Washington press corps. His impromptu skills, honed both as president and in his years on television, usually ensure him tactical victories. He is not peremptory but retaliatory in his put-downs. Fine. Most Americans don’t especially like the Washington press corps. So they don’t mind them earning the repartee that their rude provocation deserves. But Trump’s victories are becoming Pyrrhic.

I have watched nearly every Corona Task Force presser. I took a day off after the Lysol ridiculousness to lower my blood pressure. However, I find the briefings to be very informative. The president gives an overview and then introduces members of the Task Force to update on specific items. The media hates these forums, because they can’t control the information that is available to the public. This is a great reason to keep airing them. The most tedious portion of the pressers are the questions from the members of the White House Press Corps. They are political reporters trying to ingest health, science and business information.

Sens. Mitt Romney and Kyrsten Sinema are raising alarms that the federal government is “behind the curve” in tallying the scope of the coronavirus’s spread in the United States, pressing the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to quickly devise a real-time national system for tracking the pandemic. The Utah Republican and Arizona Democrat sent a letter to CDC Director Robert Redfield on Thursday laying out the challenges the United States is facing in trying to assess an accurate national picture for the disease’s creep across the country. So far, more than 850,000 Americans have contracted the virus and over 43,500 have died. The bipartisan pair conclude

When you think of it, it's nothing short of incredible that Joe Biden is the presumptive nominee for the Democratic Party.
