by Joseph Simonson
 | May 15, 2019 06:08 PM



New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio will announce his run for the White House tomorrow, joining 22 other Democrats in an increasingly crowded primary race.

A campaign spokesperson confirmed the event to NBC News, ending months of speculation about whether de Blasio would jump into the 2020 Democratic Party presidential primary.

Lord, God in heaven, please help us.  De Blasio has the $$ and the corrupt connections to get the DEM nomination.

I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution; to obey it laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies." -William Page

DeBlasio will not do that well.  Jeb Bush had over $100 million in his coffers, and he did not make it to first base.  DeBlasio will do better than many in the clown car, but he will not be there at the end of the line.  He is espousing that they have the New Green Deal in New York.  That will not get him far at all.

He brings nothing to the table. In 2020, Trump will once again set the issues, and they are securing our border from illegal alien invasion, strengthening our military, making our so called partners carry more of their fair share, which they still are not doing.  Germany is contributing about half, and they are the richest nation in Europe!

I think healthcare will get discussed halfway through 2020, because more people will have experienced the vagaries of Obamacare, more will have seen loved ones die prematurely because of the policies of Obamacare, and thus more people will be angry with the remaining legacy of the worst president in USA history, Barack Obama.

Trump has to lead the Republicans to voting victories in the House and the Senate, with 60+ senators being Republican.  Either he gets the majorities he needs, or it will be four years of gridlock.  I think that should be a major plank on his campaign too.  Give me the voting majorities I need to affect the change needed within this country. He gets that, America is being made great again.  The Democommies wish to destroy this country as the socialists did in Vennezuela.

   And to think I thought 17 Republican Presidential candidates in 2016 was insane, the dems have outdone us, again. Looking forward to the final five or so when the long knives come out. 
   Unless Trump is caught with a live boy or a dead Russian girl, he's got this, IMHO.

Under ordinary circumstances, I'd agree with you that Trump's got this, but never, ever, under estimate the corruption of the left.

Bill de Blasio announces 2020 White House run, joining crowded field
Fox News, May 16, 2019

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Thursday morning that he will seek the Democratic nomination for president in 2020, saying President Trump "must be stopped."

De Blasio is the 23rd Democrat to officially announce a bid for the White House and the second this week following Montana Gov. Steve Bullock’s announcement on Tuesday.

The second-term mayor’s central platform will be “working people first.”

“Doesn’t matter if you live in a city or a rural area, a big state, small state. Doesn't matter what your ethnicity is. People in every part of this country felt stuck or even like they're going backwards,” he said in his announcement video posted online.

De Blasio took direct aim at Trump, calling him a “bully,” adding that “I know how to take him on.”

What does it say when no one's interested enough to post the announcement video on YouTube?   :pondering:

No comment.

I just need a chart or excel spreadsheet to keep all these candidates straight. I don’t think I’ve ever seen over 20 plus people announce before.

...  "I will take on the wealthy. I will take on the big corporations. I will not rest until this government serves working people. As mayor of the largest city in America, I've done just that.”

The mayor’s main platform will be “working people first.”

He touted his accomplishments of raising the minimum wage, paid sick leave, comprehensive guaranteed health care, and free pre-K. ...

According to a newly released Quinnipiac University poll, 76 percent of registered NYC voters think de Blasio should stay out of the race, with 47 percent believing a run will be bad for the city--and that's across all demographic groups.

It’s much worse than just his policy positions. He’s a lazy ass incompetent and corrupt as all hell.

This announcement is all about attracting more donors and Benjamin’s. If he actually won an office that involved showing up and doing actual work, he would run screaming from the room.

Well, at least she's an utterly corrupt, thieving soccer mom.

With all due respect gator, I doubt any Briefers from NYC voted for Herr Wilhelm.

I think that applies to most, if not all, of the candidates for any office.  And I say that about Republicans as well as Democrats.  They all make promises to us serfs, but once they get into office, they don't do jack for us. 

And corrupt?  Well, yeah.  And it starts with all those Benjamins acquired during the campaign to which you alluded.  Once they get into office, it's corruption on steroids.  Government as a whole is fraught with corruption just because that's the way it is set up.  So many opportunities to swindle and steal.  None of our elected officials are really interested in fixing  the problem.  They don't want to lose their cash cow.

Abysmally low turnout launched many a political career of incompetency.

Still, after eight years of Giuliani’s strong and transformative leadership followed by twelve years of Bloomberg—who didn’t try to tinker with Giuliani’s success, so the city continued humming along for a generation—it’s hard to see how that dope de Blasio got re-elected.

Oh, yeah... the democrat machine owns this town: The group-think Capital of America.
