The Democratic Primary Derby

Posted on February 13, 2019 by Robert Ringer


This is the first in a series of pieces I’ll be doing on the 2020 Democratic primary derby.  I plan to update it periodically, particularly when I see a major shift in the prospects of any of the candidates.

I’m not going to include the army of no-names who have announced, or who have hinted they might announce, that they’re running — e.g., Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, and former San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro.  I doubt any of them seriously believe they have a chance of capturing the Democratic nomination, but they certainly are aware that by running they could raise their public profiles and position themselves for future political positions or book/speaking deals.

Nor will I include better-known figures like Mark Cuban, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, or Hillary Clinton, because they, too, have no chance of winning.  Also, I doubt they will actually run.  Obviously, Hillary would be a dream come true for Republicans, because she would have zero chance of winning, but I think Democrats would have her taken out — Vince Foster style — if she dared to announce that she was going to run in the Democratic primaries.

Likewise, I will not be including high-profile people who have already stated that they definitely will not run.  These include Andrew Cuomo, Deval Patrick, Oprah Winfrey, and Michelle Obama.  Contrary to popular belief, neither Oprah nor Michelle O. possesses a giant intellect, but I’m pretty sure they’re at least smart enough to know that Donald Trump would humiliate them on a national stage.

He would reduce Oprah to tears early on by dismantling her public facade of being an intelligent, middle-of-the-road figure who appeals to all segments of American life.  Oprah realizes that Trump knows her far too well for her to risk getting into the ring with him, especially since she has already badly damaged her reputation by campaigning for Obama and Stacy Abrams.

Trump’s destruction of Michelle Obama would be even more brutal, because he would not hesitate to expose her as the media-perpetrated fraud that she is.  Given that the president has never hesitated to attack the physical appearance of his opponents or enemies (e.g., Carly Fiorina and Stormy Daniels), Michelle the Malevolent is unlikely to risk spoiling the media’s absurd portrayal of her as an intelligent, glamorous, gracious woman.  Trump would have a field day dismantling all of the media’s doublespeak nonsense about her persona by bringing out her true, snarky personality for all the world to see.  Trust me, Michelle Obama is not going to allow that can of worms to be opened.


Now, on to the no-chance candidates.

No-Chance Candidates – Tier 2

This is an odd mix of wannabes whom the media keeps telling us are viable contenders, even though they are not.  Only Amy Klobuchar and Tulsi Gabbard have announced their candidacies, but the others have hinted that they might run.  What they all have in common is that they have absolutely no chance of winning the Democratic nomination, regardless of what the FNM would like us to believe.

Bill de Blasio.  Bolshevik Bill’s Cuban honeymoon says it all.  He’s the real thing — a true commie with delusions of spreading his redistributionist faith throughout America.  I hope he runs, because it would be great fun to watch him twist himself into a pretzel with his idiotic anti-American rhetoric.  Sadly, I doubt that he will.

Amy Klobuchar.  Amy is the ultimate no-name, no brains, no accomplishment joker, one of the many Dirty Dem senators who made asses of themselves with their infantile and outrageous attacks on Brett Kavanaugh.  If Klobuchar actually makes it to the first Democratic debate — which she may not — she will be lucky to capture 1 percent support in the polls.

Tulsi Gabbard.  Gabbard has impressive assets — an Iraq War veteran who is smart, young, pretty, and ambitious.  Her problem is that many Democrats harbor an intense dislike for her for many of the positions she has taken, not the least of which are her support for Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad and her past anti-LGBT and anti-gay stances.  Gabbard will be around for a long time to come, but her entrance into the 2020 presidential primaries is premature.

Eric Holder.  Holder is a hardened criminal who openly referred to himself as Obama’s “wingman.”  Hitman would have been a more appropriate description for him.  The Fast and Furious scandal, the Philadelphia voter-intimidation incident that he refused to prosecute, and lying before Congress are just three examples of his dishonesty and lack of character.  The Dirty Dems are fortunate that Holder has no chance of winning the Democratic nomination, because he surely would turn off millions of voters with his Obama-like arrogance.

John Kerry.  Gigolo John has excelled at one thing in his life — marrying wealthy women.  How can anyone take seriously a guy who doesn’t know how to pronounce Genghis Khan?  If he actually entered the race — which I don’t think he will — he would embarrass himself even more than he already has.  One of the most detestable reprobates ever.

Terry McAuliffe.  A long-time lieutenant in the Clinton Crime Family, the former governor of Virginia is up to his eyeballs in corruption.  I doubt he will run, but if he did, Republicans would have a field day exposing his dirty laundry, which is far greater than that of the newest Virginia governor, Blackface Northam.


No-Chance Candidates – Tier 1

These are the Dirty Dems whom the media wants us to believe are serious contenders for the Democratic nomination.  With one possible exception, they are not.

Kirsten Gillibrand.  Gillibrand is downright embarrassing.  She gives new meaning to the word shameless.  She will say anything, any time, to any medium if she thinks it might elevate her status.  Gillibrand has been caught on video so many times saying things that have come back to bite her that she will make an absolute fool of herself on the debate stage.  It is sure to make for great entertainment.

Kamala Harris.  As she proves every time she opens her mouth, Unkempt Kamala is a truly vile human being.  When she likened ICE to the Ku Klux Klan, it once again underscored the fact that she’s all in with the Radical Left.  Not only will she say anything she believes will boost her profile, she also will do anything, as evidenced by her extramarital affair with former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown — an affair that kickstarted her political career.  Truly a disgusting woman.

Elizabeth Warren.  Even if Pocahontas changes her name to Hiawatha, she has no chance of winning the Democratic nomination.  Her hilarious self-destruction is enough to make one believe in karma.  Even though she will not come close to winning the Democratic primaries, watching her gasp for air as she chokes on her own lies should provide a mental orgasm for Republicans.

Cory Booker.  Booker is the Dirty Dem version of Li’l Marco — slimy, cunning, and totally devoid of principle.  In other words, he possesses all the characteristics needed to be a successful politician.  Booker is another one of those truly bad human beings, but he seems to be making a serious effort to hide his true self from the public.

I have to admit that the press conference he gave when he announced his candidacy was impressive.  He appeared to be trying to come across as a moderate Democrat, and if that’s his strategy, it shows that he’s actually thought through what his best path to victory might be.  Which makes him smarter than most of the other candidates he’s running against.

As a result of pretending that he’s moderating his radical views, I’ve come to believe that Booker could be a dark horse — but only if he’s able to keep up his act, which I doubt he can.  The probability is that he will not be able to control himself and will put on another Spartacus performance that will expose him as the embarrassing drama queen that he is.

So much for the No-Chancers.  In tomorrow’s installment I’ll be reviewing the serious candidates for the Democratic presidential nomination.  Be sure not to miss it.

    LMAO! That is really choice! What a parade of sick, sorry, pathetic, loser deadbeats! The list you just provided above appear lto look like America's Most Wanted, or should I say, America's Least Wanted. Barf me out!

  2. Richard Lee Van Der says:

    "Know thyself!" said Sophocles. How many presented here do, I wonder.If they do or did, how could they live with themselves?

  3. Rick G says:

    President Trump will have a field day ripping these losers to shreds. A Rasmussen poll, the most reliable poll out there, has put DT's popularity at 52%! And this is only the beginning. I would love to see President Trump take on Hiawatha and Amy Hideous Hog Klobuchar. Oh yes, more brownie points for DT. Radic-Lib Fake News MSNBC came out yesterday with a once in a lifetime news story that they have found NO EVIDENCE WHATSOEVER WITH ANY RUSSIAN INVOLVEMENT OR RUSSIAN COLLUSION IN THE 2016 ELECTION. So, sorry, Radic-Libs. I guess that puts another puncture in your political balloon. Too bad…….boo hoo hoo!

    • lee says:

      what you failed to mention was.That msnbc reported that .That was said by a member of a Republican committee.While every day.more and more evidence is found that trump did collude with the Russians.Trump says that putin likes him.And He likes putin.And it's a good thing not a bad thing.For them to work together.

      • Steven Lidkea says:

        Wrong! There is no evidence. There will be no evidence. If ANY evidence of Russian collusion will be found it will be with someone with the initials Hillary Clinton.

        • lee says:

          there is alot of evidence.Trump's oligarchs.the ones going to prison.Have said that trump was going to built a trump tower in Moscow.And give putin a five hundred thousand dollars suite.Trump applied for a ten million dollar loan.From a Russian affiliated bank.To build the tower.The bank denied it. When trump became President.Thinking if trump defaulted It would be difficult to get the money back from an American President.

      • Jean says:

        Except that the intel agencies working with Mueller on that investigation have already released their report: "no evidence" to support the idiotic notion that Trump was colluding with Russia. However, there is still ample evidence of Hillary's collusion with Russia, such as the very lopsided uranium deal that enriched those in power in Russia.

        It is a "good thing" to work with Putin. So far, he's been a pretty effective leader in Russia, and it's better for him to work with US than for him to work with China against us. The latter is how things are shaping up – Russia's sole customer for oil is China right now; we've usurped the majority of that market and are now one of the world's oil EXPORTERS (an industry Obama tried to kill entirely and AOC is working hard to destroy as well.)

        You've been wrong more than you've been right, and I suspect that applies to most of your life and your judgments. Perhaps you should join the rest of your generation and subscribe to one of those psychic hotlines – at least one of THEM will give you some common sense solutions to your life issues. They're more reliable than any of the politicians you cling to.

        • lee says:

          you are wrong.As usual.No such report has been released.the USA intelligence has told trump.That putin interfered in the 2016 election.Trump said putin has strongly denied it.And he believes putin.Against his own intelligence.Putin when asked if he and his officials had helped trump win the 2016 election.He answered.Yes.yes I did.

  4. sixxfingers says:

    barack obama's sudden meteoric rise to the top has apparently convinced a slew of unqualified, incompetent wannabe tyrants that they can do it as well. But now we know what happens when an unqualified, incompetent, wannabe tyrant actually gets elected and I doubt the country will make that mistake again. Especially after four years of Trump successes with employment and the economy overall. Democrats have to know by now they have no one one their side whose policies COULD maintain Trump's successes; they may not even have anybody who would WANT to continue them. Progressivism isn't about economic health. It's about economic destruction.

    Maybe ole Pocahontas can pull off her ethnicity trick again by changing her name to Hiawatha! I heard that Kamala the Human Wart is not really an African-American, which she claims to be. Her father is Jamaican while her mother was from India. What a real upchucky fraud she is! She's gross looking and looks like she stinks to high hell! P- – – -U! Cory Booker looks like a Nobama on crack! I bet that was one heck of a rough-ride pregnancy for his mama. Whew! And how about that fat Radic-Lib pig, Amy Hideous Hog Klobuchar! What a big, fat porker that thing is. Hideous Hog Amy would do much better for herself by running for a blue ribbon.contest at the county fair than wasting all those rolls of fat running against DT. So much for Hideous Hog Amy!

    I'll stay tuned for the next line up America's Least Wanted. Can't wait!

  7. Rick G says:

    None of these vermin are electable, none whatsoever. A comment about Unkempt Kamala. She would be a good running mate for Pocahontas, aka. Hiawatha. Sticky Kamala claims to be African-American (here we go again). But she is, and sad to say, not. Her daddy is Jamaican and here mommy is Indian (from India). She is black about as much as I am a Martian.

  8. Rick G says:

    And a comment for that fat porker Amy Hideous Hog Klobuchar. Her chances of winning are much better for running in a blue ribbon contest for the biggest sow at the county fair, than at beating President Trump in 2020.

    Hmmm, Klobuchar. Sounds like the name of one of the dinos to appear in the next movie, Jurassic World 3………Klobucharus Rex!

  9. Scott Theczech says:

    A brilliant summary indeed! If I were to be given a test, these cliff-notes have me passing with flying colors; thank your RJR.

    • Scott theczech says:

      Really, I mean it. These Dems are legion and hard to keep track of. This information is very helpful that Mr. Ringer has provided. Thing is though, they’ll start dropping like flies once the donor well dries up for them or they make politically fatal mistakes, as they are want to do.

  10. Rick G says:

    Cory Booker! Another loser who hasn't a snowball's chance in hell. He looks like Nobama on crack!

  11. Ivan says:

    How many of the candidates that are running just have illusions of grandeur? A man or woman needs to know their limitations. Trump on the other hand does have the dedication and does what it takes to make America great again. Beware candidates, because Trump will shred your EGO to pieces on a national stage.

  12. Rip Read says:

    I'm betting on a solid Independent run by two of the best…Al Franken and Jill Stein…Let's give a resounding applause to the best political team ever…Franken Stein 2020!

  13. Rick G says:

    Cory Booker……<chuckle, chuckle, chuckle. He looks like a mutated Nobama experiment gone bad.

  14. Rick G says:

    How about this Howard Schultz who wants to run as an independent. He is a self-proclaimed centrist, so he says, Democrat, strike one. He criticizes both major political parties for not representing the views of the American people.<yawn>.How many times have I heard the riggamaroll before? Yet he supports Obamacare, strike two, and opposes Trump's tax cuts strike three, you're out!!! He says he's for real tax reform, but doesn't say what it is……. All he is, is a Radic-Libocrat trying to get in the back door. Trump will whip his *ss big time! You can't fool me! Bye, bye Howie!

  15. Rick G says:

    Trump 2020!

  16. Rick G says:

    Howard Schultz is just a sugar-coated creme filled Radic-Lib!

  17. Rick G says:

    For those of you new on here, you may be wondering where I got the term "Radic-Lib" from. It was a term used by the late former Vice President Spiro T. Agnew meaning RADICal-LIBeral. He hated the Radic-Libs and the Radic-Libs hated him! So love there between them at all.

    • lee says:

      In 1974 Siro Agnew.Was investigated by the United states attorney for the district of Maryland.On suspicion of criminal conspiracy,bribery,extortion and tax fraud.Agnew took kickbacks from contractors during his time as Baltimore county executive and governor of Maryland.The payments continued into his time as vice president
      On October 10,1973.Agnew pleaded no contest to a single felony charge of tax evasion And resigned from office.

    No love…..

  19. larajf says:

    Booker is digging himself in deeper calling for everyone to become a vegetarian. Good luck finding people to vote for you on that platform. We in CommiFornia knew about Kamala. The only reason she keeps getting elected? I'm guessing she's sleeping with the right people who suddenly find boxes of votes like Slick Willy Brown did when he was in charge.

    • Jean says:

      The more candidates who enter the field, the more the democrats reveal who they really are. AOC and the greenies want to destroy the energy industry, and Booker wants to destroy production agriculture. Harris and Klobuchar are merely anti-male (unless it benefits them), so they want to destroy the XY chromosome pattern!

      The party that tried to sell itself as the home of intelligencia is now being represented by a bartender, a fake native American who without that EEOC fraud would never have landed her prestigious positions, a gay vegan (Booker – his private life will eventually overshadow anything else) under whose leadership Newark, NJ became the ultimate representation of a third-world shithole country (the Peace Corps trains its volunteers there before sending them into the jungles of Africa), and a woman whose primary skills are exercised between the sheets. They represent the Jerry Springer audience!!

    "Contrary to popular belief, neither Oprah nor Michelle O. possesses a giant intellect," Moochie? What popular belief are you referring to?

    Oh yeah, the braindead left.

    Is Tulsi Gabbard even eligible to be president? American Samoa (where she was born) is US territory but Samoans are not considered US citizens by birth.

  23. Poster Child says:

    RJR, I am afraid–really afraid!–that you could possibly be wrong about Hitlery Clinton being unable to win. Prediction is very difficult, especially about the future. What if the Devil and his/her/its demons help her to become the leader of the Demonrats? History can take some nasty turns. Hitlery Clinton can be very nasty.
