Left and Center-Left Both Claim Stacey
Abrams. Who's Right?

To left-leaning Democrats, Stacey Abrams, who is making her second run for Georgia governor, is a superstar: a nationally recognized voting-rights champion, a symbol of her state’s changing demographics, and a political visionary who registered and mobilized tens of thousands of new voters — the kind of grassroots organizing that progressives have long preached. “I don’t think anyone could call Stacey Abrams a moderate,” said Aimee Allison, the founder of She the People, a progressive advocacy group for women of color. Moderates would beg to differ. They see Abrams as an ally for rejecting left-wing policies that center-left Democrats have


It's beyond me why Dimmiecrats think this woman is some kind of shining star. Her only claim to fame is a few terms in the Georgia legislature and engineering voter turnout that exceeded 100% of eligible voters.

Fat Stacy is a crook who stuffed the ballot boxes in Georgia. She's also the poster child for sore losers.

This is stupidity, nothing more. There is no "center left" anymore. They are all far left radicals, with a handful of moderates. That's it.

If Stacey Adams is the answer in Georgia, I can't imagine the question. What she has learned is that race-baiting and white guilt are a formidable combination in elective politics these days. Conservatives, unable to formulate much effective response, tend to run from these "issues", especially where black voters are such a huge voter bloc.

Stacy Abrams is the Black Hillary Clinton. Her only claim to fame is losing her big election and never accepting the loss. Even years later, both Abrams and Hillary still claim their "wins" were stolen from them. Also, both are about as useful as a screen on a submarine.

She was shown three cars priced at her limit, roughly $7,500. Schrier said the woman was stunned. "'That's what I get for $7,500?‘" he recalled her saying.

Riot police armed with batons and shields clashed with thousands of anti-lockdown protesters in the Dutch capital today. Crowds gathered in Amsterdam's Museum Square to object against Covid-19 measures and vaccinations - despite a country-wide ban on group meet-ups. City Mayor Femke Halsema issued emergency orders allowing cops to clear the area of rule-breakers during the latest wave of virus infections. Water cannons were used to disperse swarms of people, while police dogs attacked those getting too close. Officers also thrashed activists with batons as tempers flared.

Should Donald Trump run in 2024? 44 replies

With the turn of the calendar to 2022, Republicans are not only looking to the 2022 midterm elections but to the prospect of Donald Trump running in 2024. Trump is hugely popular with the party’s base and that popularity freezes the plans of other possible candidates for the 2024 nomination. Trump’s hold on that nomination is brittle, however, because of his age. On election day in 2024 Donald Trump will be 78 years old. That is one year older than Ronald Reagan’s age when he left office in 1988.Looking at the 2024 contest from the other side of the race, there is no reason to expect that Joe Biden
