Democrats’ Search for a Savior in 2024 Looks Bleak

AMAC Exclusive – By Louis J. Senn

Democrats have a real 2024 problem. And no, it’s not the polls, or the economy, or the national mood. It’s the top of the ticket. Recent polls have shown that a majority of the country – and even a majority of Democrats – don’t want Joe Biden to run again. With his ever-more obvious physical and mental decline, it’s reasonable to ask if Biden will even be able to run. But when looking around at the other options available to take his place, the situation becomes truly grim for Democrats.

Kamala Harris: A Walking Blooper Reel

Vice President Kamala Harris should be a natural figure for Democrats to rally around. However, everyone within the party seems to understand that the former California Senator who couldn’t crack double digits in Iowa in 2020 and has lower approval ratings than Joe Biden simply isn’t a viable option.

It doesn’t help that Harris seems incapable of public speaking and has driven most of her staff to head for the exits. Voters do not connect with her. She’s awkward, uncomfortable, and perhaps most damning of all, has hardly done anything at all as Vice President. Though Biden made Harris his “border czar” more than 16 months ago, she has yet to visit the border and the immigration crisis is growing worse by the day.

Just as many voters seem to have buyer’s remorse with President Joe Biden, many in Democrat circles seem to have similar sentiments about Harris’s selection as Vice President.

Mayor Pete: Out of Touch and In Over His Head

On second thought, handing a small-town mayor control of the Department of Transportation might not have been the best idea – at least not this mayor. Though Pete Buttigieg is actually beating Joe Biden in some 2024 polling, his tenure as Transportation Secretary hardly inspires confidence. From disappearing for two months during the supply chain crisis to launching a $1 billion “road equity” project to combat “systemic racism” supposedly “built in” to the highway system, to suggesting that high gas prices are actually a good thing because they will force more Americans to buy electric vehicles, time and again Buttigieg has come across as tone deaf and out of touch – perhaps another reason why he too failed to gain much momentum in the 2020 race.

Americans are not looking for a lecturer-in-chief. They’re looking for a leader who understands their problems and helps them live their lives better. Most Americans want to be left alone, not be told that the roads they use are racist or that they must buy an electric car to be a “responsible citizen.” Pete Buttigieg can’t even run a federal agency – what reason do voters have to believe he can run a country?

Michelle Obama: The Sleeper Pick

More than six years after Barack Obama left the White House, Democrats and the mainstream media are still infatuated with anything to do with the Obama family. Late last month, Michelle Obama announced that she will be releasing yet another memoir this fall, to fawning praise from the media establishment. Some pundits are already describing her as the Democrats’ “emergency” candidate for 2024.

Putting aside the question of whether she would want the job (so far she has insisted that she doesn’t, but that could conceivably change with some lobbying from Democratic leaders), the former first lady would be a major force in any Democratic primary field thanks to her last name alone. Her fundraising ability would be unparalleled. Despite former President Obama’s unpopularity with conservatives, Michelle Obama remains generally popular with the public and is still one of the most recognizable figures in the country. For Democrats desperate for someone who at least appears to have a fighting chance in 2024, drafting Michelle Obama may become a more and more enticing option.

Hillary Clinton: A 2016 Rematch?

The other first lady that may make a return appearance in 2024 is Hillary Clinton, as “whispers” begin to circulate among Democratic circles that she could be the party’s best chance of retaining the White House. The 2016 runner-up has been increasing her public appearances in recent months, and she insisted following her loss to Donald Trump that he was an “illegitimate” president. A chance at a rematch in 2024 as Trump teases his own plans could be tempting for Clinton.

A potential Clinton 2024 campaign, of course, would be bogged down by the fact that she already lost one presidential race where she was heavily favored and had a huge fundraising advantage. Continuing revelations from the Durham report have also further damaged her credibility, and many Democrats may prefer a candidate with less political baggage.

The Rest of the Field: Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Gavin Newsom, Roy Cooper

Then we have the rest of the Democrat hopefuls, whose chances are likely even slimmer than Biden’s. Elizabeth Warren undoubtedly still harbors presidential aspirations, but after failing to beat out Bernie Sanders for the party’s left-wing vote in 2020, she’s unlikely to make much noise in 2024, particularly if Sanders runs yet again.

As for Sanders, the Democratic establishment made clear in 2016 and 2020 that they have no intention of allowing him to win the nomination – even if they have to play dirty to ensure he stays off the ticket.

After surviving a recall bid in deep-blue California, Governor Gavin Newsom has shown some signs that he intends to take his brand of politics national by running ads in Florida and Texas. But with California witnessing a mass exodus of residents under Newsom’s leadership, a series of crises including crime, drugs, cost of living, and homelessness overtaking his state, and in the wake of a litany of scandals like the infamous French Laundry incident, Newsom will face significant hurdles in convincing the public to turn America into California.

There are also those within the party who cling to the fantasy that there is any lane at all left for “moderates” like North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper. “If he can win in Republican North Carolina, he can definitely win nationally,” goes the standard line of reasoning inside some liberal think tanks. But Cooper is unlikely to inspire much enthusiasm from the Democratic base. While his policies are undoubtedly far to the left of what most North Carolinians believe, they are nonetheless likely insufficiently “woke” for the Democrat activist class, handing any potential Cooper 2024 campaign a baked-in disadvantage.

***

These names are just a few to be on the lookout for in 2024 should Biden not seek a second term (or perhaps even if he does). More are sure to arise – after all, no one was talking seriously about President Donald Trump before the 2014 midterms. Regardless of who the nominee is, however, they’ll still be forced to defend Biden’s disastrous record and explain to voters why the Democratic Party deserves another four years in the White House. That will be a tall task for any politician, no matter how skilled or determined they are.

It’s hard to find a “savior” in a DemocRat in a gaggle of Democrats and sympathetic Commies since they already believe they are “GODS!”

Doesn’t really matter if they can’t find a compelling candidate to run in 2024. Biden was hardly what one would describe as either a compelling candidate or even marginally competent for the job in 2020, with his obvious signs of dementia at the time. Yet through the concerted effort of the MSM, the likes of Zuckerberg bucks, a coordinated and multi-layered strategy ranging from getting voting criteria changed all across the country, voter ID and ballot receipt laws suspended or modified to a well executed plan targeting the six key swing states, the vote counts were miraculously manipulated to give the impression Biden won. So given the little that has been by most states to ensure that can’t happen again, I see no real reason to NOT expect the Democrats will just repeat what worked for them so well in 2020. All the Democrats need is the political stooge to parade before the public as their new candidate and they’re all set.

Senn should now go down the list of Republican possibilities. Given that the Trump hate factor is still very very large, who are the other viable candidates? And what is their baggage?

Beware of Michelle. There are some who will vote for her because she will be the first women Pres. There are some who will vote for her because she is of color. There are some who will vote for her because they will be the first husband and wife, both of color. Then some will see her as the only choice for the party. Then some will vote for her because of the uniqueness of the situation and want to say they voted for it.

They never pick anyone capable or knowledgeable, they are only interested in appeasing certain people belonging to certain groups and voting blocks. Leadership is all about picking capable and accomplished people not checking certain boxes and hoping for the best, You will never find the best that way.

It will be Michelle Obama and she WILL PROBABLY WIN exactly the same way Biden “won”! . . . What really aggravates me is that the stupid Republican leadership looks like they haven’t learned anything from the last Election and that history DOES repeat itself! . . . and the country suffers again! . . . God Forbid!

The discussion of the top of the ticket for the democrats never deals with merit but rather their network of miscreants they consider to be a candidate for the highest office in the land. There is no Harold Ford in their stable of prospective individuals.

That the democrats don’t have any good candidates might be the least of Republican benefits.
I suggest that a vindictive donald trump will form a 3rd party if he is not the Republican party’s presidential candidate. That would leave the democrats in control and virtually sure of winning.
Trump will not go quietly.

DUMPSTER DIVING PROFESSIONAL NEEDED TO LOCATE A DEMOCRAT CANDIDATE. THE ALLEGED “REPUBLICANS” BETTER TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THIS SITUATION. STOP TALKING AND START WALKING TO VICTORY.

Kamala couldn’t break “double digits” in CA, let alone Iowa! Moochelle won’t have high ratings once she states policy positions that are as radical as Hilly’s are. Petey couldn’t run a mid-sized city and has totally failed as “Trans” Secretary. Not one DIMM has had any REAL job in their life!

Most of us are still trying to figure out how Biden got it in the first place. Was it on the up and up or was it totally crooked. Either way I’m personally struggling with even trusting our current electorial system. It’s all fine an dandy if a few states have decided to correct or beef up the security of their voting system but it seems that the ones that are doing it are the red states. Maybe we should start playing by their blue rule book. I’m questioning on if republicans will EVER win another national election.

Michelle Obama would be a joke just like Biden. She is idealogicly inclined as a trained communist and most probably the biggest racist in America.There is no one in the Democrat Party today that can govern the USA for the simple reason they HATE our country and its’ people. There is no where to go for them. The DEMS have no understanding of Economics, no ability to Negotiate good Trades for our economy.
There is absolutely NO TRUST in the DEMS to do ANYTHING that will help the people and our country to succeeed.The people who keep coming back to suppoert the DEMS need to wake up, before you find yourself living in a GULAG. DEMS are all about POWER & CONTROL, nothing else matters to them.

The search may end quicker than people think. The real Savior may be taking this earth back soon. I find the Tonga volcano interesting in that it may damage the ozone causing more heat. The bible predicts a time when people would shake their fists at God because of scorching heat. I don’t think this is something humans can control. God is slow to anger, but wants us to look to Him. He loves everyone and wants to save everyone, but we have to go by His rules. How simple yet profound, that we can go to Heaven by accepting Christ Jesus as Savior and have our sins forgiven. There is no other way. Over the years, He has allowed things on the earth due to satan ruling the earth because of humans rejecting God. These things, plagues etc., have caused many to turn to Him, but the next generations fall away. Now most of the universities teach there is no God. They have a major surprise coming, probably soon.

They might as well look at either President Trump, or Ron De Santis now, because if they wait until 2024 I don’t think any of their ilk can save anything by then, just as they can’t do it now! The word “Democrat,” or progressive for that matter are the antithesis of the word “savior.” In any case, I already have a Savior, and even for any political office from dog catcher to President I am certain to never even as much as look in the direction of the Donkey Pox Party.

The Democrat leaders are all anti-American Marxists. In order for a potential leader to be accepted by the Democrat political machine, he/she must be a left-wing Marxist. Most people in this country are sick and tired of hate-America Marxists. The resulting conclusion is that it is almost impossible for a future Democrat leader to be accepted by both the Marxist Democrats and the patriotic Americans. The Republicans are in the driver’s seat if they don’t drive over a political cliff. Tragically, Republicans have a gift for choking. Sometimes, I almost think they like it that way.

If, and this is a huge if, the Democrats were serious, they would have benefited to have Tulsi Gabbard on their list. And the reason I believe that they do not have her there is because Hillary Clinton and Gabbard have bad blood between them.
As a matter of fact, I’m willing to bet that every selection on their list has some sort of bad blood with the Clintons one way or another.

I’ve often wondered what our political situation would be today had many listened to the people of the Great State of Arkansas instead of the noise coming from the phoney saxophonist grifting, felony rapist who ultimately ended up moonlighting as POTUS for two terms while projecting their ad nauseum influence sickness for thirty years now.

Perhaps they really need to turn to the only true Savior.
But alas and alack and painfully lacking in their self focused and bleeding from the eyes insanity to be the “roolers of da world”, they can’t see past their blood red mania to destroy every vestige of our heritage. It has ZERO to do with anything else but one party rule. It’s not complicated. Why do folks (or do many of them) think these people are so frantic to disarm We The People?
As one of our most illustrious and brilliant Founders said so long ago: “Firearms are the Liberty’s teeth.” George Washington.
Notice the 2nd. Amendment is only after “free” speech…and we know how that’s working out.
The left has deliberately and with malice weakened our “justice” system to a sick joke. A sitting “president” presided over the 51 day torture and ultimate slaughters of almost 86 men, women and CHILDREN, under the carefully omitted (except for a few brave souls who told the truth later) reason…they supposedly had thousands of guns and “millions” of rounds of ammo. This was in 94′. Interesting after the 51 day assault and the resulting carnage not ONE word ever came out about those “thousands of guns and millions of rounds of ammo.” Curious indeed.

Democrat success depends on propaganda and grift. With education at all levels so dumbed down, democrats are conditioning the electorate to surrender. However, I believe they are doomed to failure eventually. I hope their collapse comes soon.

Demoncraps have nothing but socialist scumbag losers in their party and America doesn’t want them. 
When politicians show their selfish greed throw them out. it is time to elect Republicans in the House and Senate of both state and federal. 
Donald Trump is proven! He is a patriot, not a politician, and what he accomplished for America, was awesome, he will “Make America Great Again” 
Vote for Trump 2024. DeSantis for VP and President in 2028

It doesn’t matter who the Communists nominate we all know they will cheat as massively as they can. Their minions are more than willing to do all they can to make sure another communist sits in the White House. Cheat, cheat, and more cheating. They have it down to a science. The only way to stop the cheating is for the Republicans to completely take over the election process in every State and territory. Democrats (communists) have been running the election process in every State and it’s time Republicans tell them to move over.

I think Michelle Obama might be the best contender to give Barack his 4th term. I also really like Alfred E. Neuman if he is still available. If the socialist/democrats can just shed enough tears to get enough people behind SOMEONE, they might stand a chance to pull the wool over the eyes of the public to take another one. Just say’n.
