You know, it just boggles my mind at these politicians who have totally failed their constituents, demonstrated stunning levels of incompetence, as did Buttigieg did in South Bend, Indiana, and as Newsom has done and is doing in California, and other misfits like all those listed in this guest article in P&D,who can't change a light bulb, think they should be President of the United States, the most important nation on the planet, and run it competently and effectively to the benefit of America and Americans.
Fortunately, or unfortunately, we have a President and a Vice President that have demonstrated what happens when stunningly stupid and incompetent ideologues are in charge. Everything turns in to crap, so when we see the Governor of California running ads in Florida, we know he actually believes he can be President of the United States, and will win if he runs.
Here are three articles dealing with Newsom you may find interesting.
Newsom Trolls Florida - July 3, 2022 - Under Gavin Newsom’s leadership, California has become a disaster area: the highest poverty rate in the nation, population dropping, major cities turned into battle zones, businesses fleeing, utilities unable to keep the lights on. One might expect the state’s governor, who survived a recall election last year, to be holed up in his Sacramento office working feverishly on plans to turn his state around. But no: Gavin Newsom is pumping up his re-election campaign with an ad about…Florida..............
California Gov. Gavin Newsom to Run Ads in Florida on July 4th - Joel B. PollakGovernor Gavin Newsom (D) will run campaign ads on July 4th — in Florida, not in his home state of California, where he is up for re-election. The San Francisco Chronicle reports that Newsom is preparing for a possible 2024 presidential run:
The ads are the latest move in what his advisers say is Newsom’s effort to stand up nationally for Democratic values. He’s been posting “truths” about red states on Donald Trump’s new social media platform, ripping Supreme Court justices for their decisions on abortion, guns and the environment, chiding rival governors in Texas and Florida, doing national media interviews and even calling out his fellow Democrats for being too passive.
“I’m resolved to wake all of us up to what is going on in this country,” Newsom said recently. To “what is happening in real time that is not getting the attention it deserves in red states across America. (Conservatives are) aggressively and successfully rolling back rights that all of us have come to take for granted.”
But there is another, unspoken reason that Newsom is bumping up his national profile as a fighter: He is warming up in the bullpen for the 2024 presidential campaign — just in case Joe Biden decides not to seek re-election. (Biden insists that he’s running. And Newsom insists he wants Vice President Kamala Harris to be Biden’s successor.)
Less than a year ago, Newsom survived a recall election in his own state that represented a backlash among voters to his aggressive coronavirus policies. Florida distinguished itself by keeping its economy largely open during the pandemic................
As the kid in the Little Rascals said: Remarkable!!!
