Speculation has begun about the 2024 Democratic presidential ticket, almost three years before the election. Some of the suggestions are blasted as risible. But the early chatter itself reveals the nervousness that permeates the party. In the past week alone, New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman held out the possibility of anti-Trump Republican Rep. Liz Cheney (Wyo.) being added as President Biden’s 2024 running mate. (Snip) Straddling the line between reality and fantasy is a long-cherished notion for many Democrats: a Michelle Obama candidacy. The former first lady would be a formidable contender. But she has been crystal clear in  CORRECTION*


Dems look into the future and see an abyss.

Yeah, Moochie is so formidable that they had to hide her in hotel rooms and feed her champagne and lobster in 2008. She was tanking Obama's campaign because she is one of the nastiest and most toxic democrats in the party right now. So she spent the last 6 weeks in hiding so Obama could salvage his campaign. She would truly be a puppet, allowing others to run the show. She has no interest in doing the work, but she would probably love the title. At least she doesn't cackle, but Moochie does snarl well.

In November 2022, the political career of Liz Cheney will cease and she'll be a regular guest on MSNBC shows. Look for California Gov. Gavin "Noxious" Newsom to spout his "repair" tips to the electorate sheep and accelerate very close to the top.

Yes, Moochie has a toxic personality, #2, but Biden was a drooling, doddering fool during the 2020 campaign and they still managed to get him elected by smoke, mirrors, and Dominion machines. The big Mooch would simply be a figurehead to keep all the talk-show feminists in swoon mode.

2024 will likely be a Republican landscrape...Dems have played, and can be expected to overplay their hands until November '24. They're too deep into at least lip service to the radical agenda...and they have their GOPe UNIPARTY partner to help them along the way. Now, here's the Republican problem. FPDT can return from Elbe/West Palm and announce. The field will clear. And after his election one can hear the GOPe tut-tutting about how they hope he has learned his lessons, etc. That he will put down the Twitter and all that. Be a "uniter", not a divider. And with that the Dems and their minions will start up with the neverending string of kitchen sinks...and the GOPe will complain that nothing can get done...impeachment will be "on the table" the day FPDT announces. And here we go again. PDT served his purpose. It's time to pass the baton. And to whom? The Reagan Revolution faltered under his hand-picked successor. There are no guarantees that DeSantis or anyone else will satisfactorily move it forward. Another lesson is Teddy Roosevelt and William Howard Taft...1912 and the Bullmoose party...Woodrow Wilson...

It is totally amazing that the dems and sometimes the repubs push people that have no experience in leadership and no experience outside of government. I am not amazed that media push Senators as candidates. The media and most Senators share the same non-qualifications of plenty of words spoken (or written) with little accomplishments and no accountability.

It is true that Michael is a nasty piece of work but noxious personalities are bundant on the left and it never seems to affect their candidacies. The true reason The first wookie will never run for office is simple. She is one of the laziest people on the planet. Even the miniscule amount of work Obama did in office (the laziest POTUS by a long shot) was far more than she would ever agree too. She would much rather sit at the head table as slimy sycophamts swoon and adulate her while she sips champagne and eats lobter someone else had to crack than actually get up an do something. WHy risk doing anything you could be held responsible for when those you surround yourself with will swoon as you take credit for all the things others took the risk for.

I figured this was coming when the Media started giving Cuomo the treatment they usually give Republicans. The tried-and-true Sex Scandal Headline after Headline. The media tried it with Justice Clarence Thomas, they tried it with Trump, they tried it with attorney Dershowitz, they tried it with Brett Kavenaugh, they tried it with Matt Gaetz, and many others. That they turned it on Cuomo told me loud and clear.... the 'Rats in the Democ'RAT Party have picked their 'golden boy/girl/it' for 2024, and they want Cuomo -who, although a scum, has national name recognition and would probably be a stronger candidate- OUT of the WAY. So, give him the Sex Scandal treatment, dirty him up so that when people hear 'Cuomo' they think 'sex abuser'. The 'Rats only have a few plays in their playbook, and after years of watching them, this one is obvious. Who have they pre-selected? I have no idea. I'm just a regular guy all the way down South in Mississippi. But I saw this tactic from 1,000 miles away.

Reps. Jim Langevin of Rhode Island and Jerry McNerney of California mark the 27th and 28th House Democrats not running for reelection in 2022 as analysts expect a favorable year for Republicans. Both members announced their retirements on Tuesday. “I will keep working for the people of my district throughout the remainder of my term and look forward to new opportunities to continue to serve,” McNerney, 70, said in a tweet. McNerney has represented California in Congress since 2007, in the 9th District since 2013 and in the old 11th District before that. Langevin, 57, wrote a Providence Journal op-ed

New York - President Joe Biden's 2022 is off to a dreadful start. Prices at the pump could make it even worse. Crude oil has already zoomed back to two-month highs. Gasoline prices, which move with a lag, have stopped their muted decline. And they're starting to creep higher again. The energy resurgence is only going to add to the economic anxiety gripping the United States and sinking Biden's poll numbers. "This is a terrible situation.

Over the past three years, dozens of cities across the country have banned natural gas hookups in newly constructed buildings as part of a growing campaign to reduce carbon emissions from homes. The movement scored a major victory last month, when New York City’s outgoing Mayor Bill de Blasio signed into law a ban on gas hookups in new buildings. Though new laws apply to the entire home, the policy debate often focuses on one room in particular: the kitchen. Gas stoves account for a relatively small share of the emissions released by a typical household, but they’ve become a

RICHMOND — Glenn Allen Youngkin, a Republican former business executive who has never held elected office, was sworn in Saturday as Virginia’s 74th governor before thousands of onlookers on the steps of the State Capitol. A 55-year-old former private equity executive with a huge personal fortune and no political experience, Youngkin is the first Republican to win statewide office in Virginia since 2009. He rode a huge GOP turnout in the November elections to a two-point victory that signaled Virginia is not as solidly blue as it appeared while President Donald Trump was in the White House.

WASHINGTON – The Biden administration on Wednesday will launch a website where Americans can order up to four free COVID-19 testing kits per person, according to a senior administration official. The tests, part of the Biden administration's purchase of 500 million tests last month to help tackle a record surge in infections, will be available at and mailed to homes within 7-12 days through the U.S. Postal Service, according to the official, who briefed reporters on the condition of anonymity in order to discuss details of the announcement.

New York - Americans shopped less in December, causing the first drop in retail sales since the summer. Sales dropped 1.9% compared with November, adjusted for seasonal swings, the Census Bureau reported Friday. The decline in sales coincided with the surge in Covid cases due to the highly infectious Omicron variant. In July, the last time sales dropped, it was on the back of cases rising due to the Delta variant. Restaurants and bars registered a 0.8% decline in sales in December as people stayed home to protect themselves against the virus, for example. But there was more at play than

WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden is planning to sign executive actions on police reform as early as this month, three people familiar with the plans said, as his administration seeks to unilaterally jumpstart an issue that’s a top priority for a key constituency. The executive actions would follow Biden’s uphill battle to advance voting rights legislation, and could coincide with a similar effort by some Democratic lawmakers to revive the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act, which stalled on Capitol Hill after failed attempts to craft a bipartisan measure. The focus on police reforms is part of what appears to

“Annus horribilis,” a Latin term that means “horrible year” is a term once famously deployed by the Queen of England to describe 1992, a tumultuous year upon which she declared she would not regard fondly. Given current trends, the same label may yet apply to the year 2022, as inflationary pressures scorch U.S. consumers at a rate not seen in decades, souring the political fortunes of a U.S. president barely a year into his term. It’s also conspiring to make a tough job even tougher for the Federal Reserve chairman he’s recommending for a second term. On Wednesday, data showed

Inflation has become one of the top economic issues in the U.S., and the Biden administration is acting accordingly with various policy actions. U.S. consumer prices rose 0.5% in December and 7.0% on a year-over-year basis, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. It's the fastest rate since 1982. Two of the biggest drivers of price spikes over 2021 have been in food and energy which is likely the reason the White House has focused on both of those sectors both for inflation as well as antitrust reasons. Tying the two issues together is not without critics, even among Democrats.
