Democrats Are Dumber By The Dozen

For the fourth time, a group of Democrats gathered on the debate stage to speak their truths.

On Tuesday, Oct. 15, one dozen 2020 presidential election candidates gathered at Otterbein University in Westerville, Ohio to spout off on their plans to make the United States a country not open for business, but inclusive to all, or at least to those who they say can be included.

For the first time, the American public heard from Tom Steyer, the old, white, male billionaire whose main goal, as claimed by himself, is to rid the world of Donald Trump. But being all the demographics that he is, Steyer was heard from for just more than seven minutes of the entire three-hour circus event. (Total time breakdown here).

The CNN and New York Times-moderated event was much more interested in hearing from frontrunner Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), for just about anything and everything she wanted to speak. And, being that it was Warren, she had a plan for everything, even when she was attacked by her peers, which occurred many times throughout the evening, specifically on healthcare and implementing a tax on wealth. Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) called Warren’s support for “Medicare for All” a pipe dream, not a plan.

“Simply because you have different ideas doesn’t mean you are fighting for regular people,” Klobuchar said to Warren about her ideas of a wealth tax.

Both Klobuchar and Mayor Pete Buttigieg (South Bend, Ind.) explained the Midwestern point-of-view, which Warren clearly did not understand throughout the entire evening. And to the right or left of Warren were the other septuagenarians, who were questioned on their own plights, whether it was Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) being asked about his health since he had a heart attack two weeks ago, or former vice president Joe Biden, who has been in the news with son, Hunter, about their connections to Ukraine. Sanders and Biden took their attempts to avoid appearing as if anything was wrong in either scenario.

“Look, my son did nothing wrong. I did nothing wrong,” Biden kept reiterating after he was questioned about his conduct with Ukraine while serving as vice president.

Biden, as did all the candidates, deflected attention off of their mishaps directly onto the belief that President Donald Trump must be impeached. Without having their own quality policy ideas to speak of, it was the most logical solution for them.

In fact, it was such an important topic for them and the news media, that there were no opening statements. Instead, the opening question asked why impeachment should be the course of action as to removing Trump from the presidency. All 12 candidates have expressed support for impeaching Trump, but it was Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) who expressed the reality that the rest of the candidates chose to ignore.

“If impeachment is driven by these hyper-partisan interests it will only further divide an already terribly divided country,” Gabbard said as the last candidate to speak on the opening issue. “Unfortunately, this is what we’ve already seen play out as calls for impeachment really began shortly after Trump won his election, and as unhappy as that may make us as Democrats, he won that election in 2016.”

To keep everyone rolling on the same crazy train, Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) took it upon himself to remind all of the candidates that they are to attack Trump and not each other.

“This has got to be about patriotism and not partisanship,” he said. “…[This election] is a referendum on who we are and who we must be to each other … not throw elbows at other Democrats that are unfair because the preparation is being the leader that can revive civic grace in our country, teach us a more courageous empathy, and remind American that patriotism is love of country. And you cannot love your country unless you love your fellow country men and women.”

At least twice he referenced his level of health and the fact that he maintains a vegan diet, as if this is the be-all and end-all solution to life.

“I feel qualified to say this as the vegan on the stage,” Booker said. “It’s rich to me that you asked three people about their health. When looking at this stage, we know that the most unhealthy person running for the presidency in 2020 is Donald Trump.”

And there you had it. From a wealth tax to veganism, that is the best the Democrats could offer for the fourth debate of the 12 that are scheduled. They had a record number of candidates on the stage at one time, and based on their performances, they demonstrated that they are dumber by the dozen.
