Dems, Don't Run a "Purity" Candidate Against Giuliani and the Russian Mob

Obama got lucky in 2008 when he ran as a 'purity" candidate, because GOP nominee John McCain was also a "purity" candidate, meaning neither side would fling mud.

That was then and this is now.

TGP---Trump/Giuliani/Putin---have proven that they will break the law in ways that even Dick Nixon could not imagine in order to trash their opponent's character---meaning that if the Democrat's strength is their POE--"Purity of Essence" (nod to Dr Strangelove)--that candidate will go down in the general election like George "Acid, Amnesty. Abortion" McGovern (nod to Robert Novak may he burn in Hell for all eternity) in 1972.

Yes, I know how Democrats like to fall in love with their nominee--but get real here. We are not nominating a prom queen. We are attempting to take back control of our country from Russia. This is very literally a matter of life and death in ways that no election has been before, because we have never had a president so obviously in the employee of a major political rival nation. Russia will consider Trump's job "well done" if, he leaves office in 2024 with the nation plunged into another Great Depression with gun toting fascist vigilantes on ever corner and maybe with a couple of Chernobyls thrown in for fun.

To all the Susan Sarandons of the world who think that your white privilege will keep you safe no matter who you help get elected this time around--don't. Just don't.

Yes, I know that Democrats are supposed to run campaigns based upon positivism and not upon fear. But how can any sane person look at the shit show in DC and not be scared shitless? This really is an election too big to F up, and if it takes a brokered convention to get the Russia Mob out of the White House, then lets start brokering.

4. Why on Earth would we trade one oligarch for another?

 

There are plenty of “impure” candidates available who don’t have the filthy baggage that Bloomberg does, and all would make better presidents than he would.

5. This billionaire helped us retake the House In 2018

 

Bloomberg is a known quantity as 3x mayor from nyc, is showing he can get support of our various constituencies, has never wavered on choice.has brought mayors together on climate change in opposition to Trump. Strong on gun issues.Speaks his mind and can change his mind-not frozen in time.

I've been monitoring the smear campaign against him and it is convincing me he has the right stuff-as do several other candidates.
