Listen: Kamala Harris, Barack Obama And Kamla Harris Kamala Harris discussed on The Michael Knowles Show
"Donald trump an image of rocky Balboa with Donald Trump's face is a symbol of freedom and hope around the world. What a great time line we are all living in? Could you imagine a better time line. I can't but on that point on twenty twenty on the leader of the free world in the hope for the future and the hope for twenty twenty another one bites the dust. You've probably already seen this going around the Internet. Kamla Harris is officially out of the race. You know it's not significant in terms of the actual election. No one thought that Kamla Harris was going to be able to claw her way out of the two percent in the polls roles that she had but it does say something about the state of the Democratic Party right now the fact that her candidacy flopped or candidacy which looked very good on paper. Flopped tells tells you a lot about where we are. Why did the candidacy look good on paper because the left is obsessed with identity politics racial identity and sexual identity the politics obviously Kamala Harris checks? Those boxes of the left is obsessed with unfettered immigration. Comma Harris is the child of immigrants. The in terms of presidential appeal in terms of how these races tend to work. If you've been on the scene too long generally that doesn't bode well for you especially in the Democratic Party now. Think of Barack Obama Right Barack Obama goes up against Hillary Clinton. We all knew hillary forever. She'd been around since the dawn of time. She was around Saint Petersburg when she felt it was time for a change so they knew what they were getting. In her Barack Obama very little was known about him and that actually helped him. He was a better candidate. The people didn't know that much about them they could project their hopes and dreams onto him. Hope and change was the biggest theme of that campaign. Same was true. Kamla harass. People didn't really know who she was she. She was an attractive looking candidate. She sounded pretty good when she wasn't giving that awful cackling laugh she had been in attorney general. She had been a prosecutor she had been a senator for five minutes. Everything looked good about her campaign except ideologically except ideologically logically. 'cause Kamala Harris couldn't pick a lane and this this could be the name of the twenty twenty Democratic primary is can you pick a lane the pick. Elaine primary. No no one able to do it. They're all veering left. They're all during center. Liz Ward is she going to be a kind of establishment Harvard professor or she going to be this radical leftist trying to go to the left Bernie Sanders. There's Mayor Pete is going to be this radical person saying that if you don't support abortion and gay marriage you're not a Christian or is he going to be the moderate guy and Joe Biden's lame Joe you bite himself. Who is the moderate race is Joe Biden? I'M GONNA lean into being a moderate or is he going to support lifting the ban on taxpayer funding for abortion. That's the trouble with with this race and one thing we're seeing is it doesn't hurt you to be an either of those lanes. When Joe Biden is playing the moderate he generally does pretty well when and Bernie Sanders is playing the leftist? He generally does pretty well. But when you start to veer left didn't center and left and center that's when you fall apart and that's what happened to Kamla Harris Kamala Harris lost because of her own weaknesses. She also lost because Tulsi Gabbard absolutely shanked her her during one of the democratic debate you can almost pinpoint there. There are two moments. I think you can pinpoint when Comma Harris campaign completely fell apart one of them at the hands of Tulsi Gabbard on CNN. A Senator Harris says she's proud of her record as a prosecutor in that she'll be a prosecutor president but I'm deeply concerned about this record. There are too many examples to cite but she put over fifteen hundred people in jail for marijuana violations and then laughed about it when she was asked if she ever smoked marijuana. That would have an innocent man from death row until the courts forced her to do so she kept people in prison beyond their sentences to use them as cheap labor for the state of California and she fought to keep Tajik bail system in"
