Trump versus mayor Pete?
People seem to forget the last time the Democrats ran a mayor Pete against a conservative. It was Walter Mondale.
Interestingly. Mondale wasn’t really that bad of a candidate and not a bad guy. He was an attorney general in Minnesota, a vice President and a senator. But like mayor Pete, he ran the gambit of (at that time) liberal media issues. He was for forced bussing, a nuclear freeze, expanded welfare, the equal rights amendment and massive tax hikes.
In other words, in 2020 it’s Trump versus a Mondale called mayor Pete.
Keep in mind, in 1984, the media had FAR more power than it has today. Then, the average daily news reach was 40 million, among 4 news channels. Today, it’s 20 million among 11 stations with Fox news alone drawing 1/4th of that.
Like all leftist candidates, mayor Pete shows his empathy for all the manufacturing jobs lost in the Midwest by stepping up to the podium and ranting about his sexuality. This is what Mondale did, only it wasn’t sexuality. Mondale wasn’t a candidate he was a tent preacher. To him, and clowns like mayor Pete, you had to be told what to do, since, in their eyes, you obviously can’t do it yourself.
As you probably know, Mondale suffered the worse election defeat in US history, carrying only Washington, DC and his home state of Minnesota. He garnered 13 electoral vote and lost the popular vote by an eye popping 17 million!
A Trump versus Mondale fight is a near guarantee in the next election.
The main reason is that to get nominated, a candidate has to raise money and to do that, they have to beg the San Francisco leftists. This is why Hillary Clinton raised money in lunatic Saudi Arabia. Because she knew moving to the left is a deal killer. Hillary Clinton may be a snake, a crook and a liar, but she isn’t an idiot. Hillary’s only campaign issue was hating Trump. Any other issue would have cost her votes.
At the time, Mondale’s LGBT bathrooms debate was forced bussing, which the liberals called “desegregation.” It was a policy that was arguably, even stupider and more oppressive than health care reform. It was also a political nightmare for the democrats. The people hated bussing with a passion, and in fact, the anti-bussing movement was more potent than the antiwar movement.
Add to that the fact that Mondale promised to bring back confiscatory taxation and you have a recipe for election disaster. Like Trump, Ronald Reagan was a PROTECTIONIST. He protected the US auto and chip industries. Like Reagan, he tried to balance the trade deficit. In the end, he passed the largest corporate tax hike in history, hiking the corporate payroll tax by 120% in one year. Today, corporations pay more in social insurance taxes they do in income taxes.
Todays democrats are like the Mondale democrats of 1984. Forced bussing has been replaced with mandatory LGBT training, complete with new bathrooms. The strong America policy has been replaced by a policy of Obama going to Europe and mocking his home country. Massive tax increases and unlimited welfare for Mexican and Guatemalan refugees is the on the table. All of this coming through the lips of an aggrieved victim of racial or sexual discrimination.
Like 1984, the Democrats seem oblivious to the world around them. They are so ensconced in their leftist community college educations that they can’t see past their noses. If these people think mayor Pete’s sexuality is a priority, they’re toast. Their candidates look like a list of the people who missed out on a flight on the Hale Bopp comet.
If the Democrats run this as their agenda, they’ll be looking back fondly at Walter Mondale.
