Vacuous Gasbag Joins the 2020 Clown Car


Oh, good.  Another vacuous gasbag with delusions of leadership has hopped into the Democrat’s 2020 Clown Car.

Just what we need.

Yesterday Spartacus Booker declared that he is a candidate for President.

Unlike vapid lightweights Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, and Kirsten Gillibrand, this preening, vacuous gasbag actually has executive experience.

He served as the Mayor of the Murder Capital of New Jersey.

Okay. I didn’t say he has experience as a successful chief executive.

As Daniel Greenfield pointed out in his column “The Mayors of the Worst Cities in America Are Running for President:”

Like Tallahassee and South Bend, Newark is one of the country’s murder capitals. And it’s been listedas the most violent city in its respective state. It’s also one of the worst cities in the country to live in.

That’s why the majority of people who work in Newark actually live away from the troubled city.

Like South Bend and Tallahassee, around 1 in 4 Newark residents live in poverty. A report this year listed Newark as the 3rd neediest city in America.

A year after Booker jumped ship to become a senator, a report found that 18% of children in Newark were living in “extreme poverty”.

The adult literacy rate in Newark is 52% making it the citywith the fifth highest illiteracy rate in America.

How does the mayor of a city with the 5th highest illiteracy rate and the 3rd neediest residents actually aspire to higher office with that miserable track record of failure and human wreckage?

Mayor Booker based his claim of having turned Newark around on all the outside money he brought in. Where all that money went is an intriguing question that will gain urgency if he becomes the nominee.

In a typical viral stunt, Booker had appeared with Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg and Governor Chris Christie on Oprah where the dot com billionaire announced that he was donating $100 million to Newark’s public schools. That gift was supposed to be matched by another $200 million in donations.

Where did all that money go?

Union fat cats got fatter. The Foundation for Newark’s Future squandered the money. And Booker was one of the five trustees of the Foundation.

You’d think a politician with such a miserable track record would avoid running for higher office.

Especially a vacuous gasbag like Cory Booker.

But, remember folks.  For Democrats, failure is a resume-enhancer.

I watched Cory’s first campaign ad.

It’s stuffed full of well-meaning do-goodism as an earnest-voiced Booker tries his best Barack Obama impersonation.

It is so over-sentimental and cloying, even a non-diabetic is at risk of coma.

Here’s the video.  Click PLAY at your own risk.

Good grief.

Booker has the depth of a rain puddle and the intellectual breadth of a block of government cheese.

In other words, he’s just another lightweight Democrat Senator with delusions of grandeur.

On the plus side, with all the Democrat Senators elbowing their way into the 2020 Clown Car, American voters will have a great opportunity to see just how vapid, unserious and trivial Democrat members of the “world’s most deliberative body” really are.

    Unfortunately American voters, legal and illegal, alive and dead, with the aid of the MSM waterboys are collectively stupid enough to give the Dems a good shot at the presidency. When was the last time you saw a report in the MSM on the black unemployment numbers falling to historic lows?

    I’m doubling (maybe tripling) my popcorn order once the demoncrat debates start. I can’t wait to watch them start trying to devour each other.

    What’s he going to do about his admitted sexual harassment in his high school yearbook? The one and only time he’s touched a woman.

    I can’t wait until T-Bone charges Booker with sexual assault.

    There may be a huge number of Dem candidates at the DNC’s planned 12 primary debates. The first Dem debate is in June 2019. Source: NPR

    One salient question: can ANY Dem candidate win against President Trump in 2020?

      I think the DNC is willing to entertain all comers to the race, but they know that the only real chance they have to take back the Whitehouse is either Crazy Uncle Joe or Comrade Bernie. They absolutely MUST show “diversity” throughout the primary process by including everyone, but there’s no way KneePads Harris, Spartacus Booger, or BudLight Warren can win in a general election and they all know it.
