Winning the 2020 Presidential Election would be a hands-down victory were it not for the excessive number as well as the quality of many of our candidates: what are we going to do?

FALL SESSION 2019


BLOG POST #3,264 AT THE AICP-END


394 DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2020

TODAY IS MY 100th BLOG POST AT THE AICP-END BLOGS



Are you as frustrated as I am over the quality of our candidates?
Kihei, HI 96753, 10-08-2019 Tuesday:  Back on April 18 of this year, I wrote a searing post about the quality of our Democratic Party candidates all vying to win the 2020 nomination and to lead our party forward to an almost certain victory.  With a loser the quality of Donald J. Goober in the White House, winning EVERYTHING should be as simple as hammering a baby centipede with a poi pounder yet with the number of dogs in the running- if Republicans play their cards right- we could end up with a loser the likes of which is going to drag our party down to defeat the likes of which, we have not seen since King Kamehameha I vanquished his enemies with the help of a few European turncoats.    
My hope is that DNC Chair Tom Perez is going to get off his butt and begin removing the losers who haven’t a chance at winning the nomination- much less the White House- before they cripple a capable candidate- by stripping them of the necessary financial wherewithal and competent campaign staff.   After all, we witnessed how the GOP ended up with the guy that now resides in the White House, creating one disaster after another, when the politicians among them should have struck a deal to boot Trump ASAP.  
The reason Republicans like JEB, Little Marco, Ted Cruz, Chris Christie, and others among them never even had a chance is because they discounted the Trumpster and allowed him to continue saying the most outrageous things as well as getting tons of free publicity so he could coalesce the bigots, the haters, the morons, the imbeciles, and the trailer park trash in his quest to turn the United States into the New Confederate States of America.  Shame on THEM!
Now, we Democrats have some talents among the diverse field seeking the nomination just as we have some embarrassments.  There are some that a generation or two ago, family members would have shut up in an unused bedroom or sealed away in a backyard cottage.  Here is what I said about one of them whom I wish would go away:
“I sometimes wonder what the heck goes on in the minds of the Democratic Party hierarchy because I think it would behoove us if the people who were seeking HIGHER OFFICE did not lose the previous office for which, they ran.  It makes no sense to me or to Chono.  A loser is a loser is a loser, folks.  The days of Richard M. Nixon are long gone…”  (Nakamura, 18-April-2019)
Now, I was discussing Bobby O’Rourke, the failed congressman, the guy who lost to the most detested and despised GOP senator in the U.S. Senate, Ted Cruz.  Why is Beto running?  Why won’t he go away?  Answer: because his family is either too ashamed or too afraid to urge the ugliest man on television, the stupidest guy who shows himself in staged photos like getting his ear hair plucked, to come the heck home already.  Mrs. O’Rourke, tell YOUR husband to come home already and to spare his family any additional humiliation. 
I also mentioned little Mayor Pete, the boy-ruler of South Bend, Indiana.  Now, I have never been to South Bend, I am sure the city is a nice one and that people go about their lives with pleasure every day.
However, that would be like the mayor of Maui running for president, the honorable Mike Victorino.  Don’t get me wrong, we love our mayor.  However, before Mayor Mike threw his hat into the ring to run for the presidency of the United States, we might suggest something else: ‘why don’t you run for the state legislature, something other than running for president.  At least that loser Bill Di Blasio was the mayor of the nation’s largest city. 
Yet, there is Mayor Pete, prancing about as though he is some gift to we, the people.  Sorry, nope, don’t believe it, you need to go away and grow up.  And, it has nothing to do with the fact that you are gay, we have loads of gays here in Hawaii, perhaps more than any other place with the exception of San Francisco and New York City. 
I also took both Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris to task, both of whom, I see as phonies.  The more that comes out about Liz the more we learn that not only is she a fraud, she’s also a lifelong liar.  When we already have a liar in the White House, can someone tell me as to WHY we would vote for another liar? 
This is what I said about the duo:
“Then, there are others such as Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris.  I think neither one is a viable candidate as to me (and I feel bad saying it) both are phonies.  The former claimed to be a Native American, something we all now know she is not, not even remotely so while the other one ‘ain’t down for the struggle’ being the product of Jamaican and Indian (dot) immigrants.”  (Nakamura, 18-April-2019)
The more Senator Warren fails to APOLOGIZE and to make financial restitution to all the universities and state bar associations and anything else she scammed over the course of her lengthy career and did so knowing full well that it was all a bunch of mongoose droppings, the sooner she MIGHT be able to reclaim her standing with millions of us Democrats. 
What’s more, there is no way I could ever vote for either liar much less for someone who wants to cripple the country financially and to institute policies that will crush our nation.   Joe, I hope we can push you across the finish line but you are going to have to start taking your opponents out and soon.

I must say I am amazed that the AICP-END Blog would send up-and-coming Bakersfield, California, street artist, the amazing Simone to Maui to do some photographic portraits of me.  We have moved in this direction since politics have turned millions of people against one another and it is important for us as employers and as private people with families to protect, that we begin covering our actual identities from those seeking to cause us problems.  I must say, Simone has done an outstanding job and this is a caricature of me that meets with my approval.  My husband and I live and own a restaurant in Kihei, Hawaii, and have also worked in institutional cooking at Maui’s premier hospital up in Wailuku.
