    Are you kidding me?... Drumpf was the star ofThe Apprentice. Being on TV with millions of viewers that seems like a lot of public service to me. That gave him an yuge amount of experience in firing people, for example, which has come in handy.

    Major Pete sucks as a mayor...

    Mayor Pete’s South Bend Record
    The issue isn’t that his city is small. It’s how he performed as a leader.

    Pete Buttigieg is rising in the Democratic presidential polls on his rhetorical gifts, distinctive resumé and fund-raising prowess. But the 37-year-old mayor of South Bend, Indiana, has so far largely received a pass on his government record from the press and even other Democrats. That isn’t likely to continue, and a good place to start is his trouble controlling violent crime.

    Violence has dropped sharply throughout the U.S. over the past two decades as a result of improved policing, more incarceration and demographic changes. But crime rates have diverged among cities with similar demographics based on local policies. South Bend, with a population of 102,000 and poverty rate of 25%, has one of the poorer records.
    [...]
    Mr. Buttigieg says violence in South Bend is comparable to cities with similar poverty. But the poverty rate in Evansville, Indiana, is 2.1 percentage points lower than in South Bend yet its violent crime is about half as high. Gary, Indiana, has a poverty rate of 36%, though its violent crime rate is 50% lower than in South Bend. Violent crime in South Bend dropped during the recession and hit a nadir in 2012. But it has climbed since Mr. Buttigieg became mayor. This raises questions about competence and priorities because a mayor’s foremost responsibility is to protect public safety.
    [...]
    After a white officer fatally shot a black man in June, Mayor Pete rebuked police recruits: “In our past and present, we have seen innumerable moments in which racial injustice came at the hands of those trusted with being instruments of justice.” He also sent an email to campaign supporters saying “All police work and all of American life takes place in the shadow of racism.”


    That was a bow to the national social-justice left but it didn’t help morale among cops on the streets in South Bend. The city has struggled to recruit police officers and has 15 fewer than budgeted for next year. The shortage has made it harder to patrol communities and respond to calls.

    Many potential recruits fail the required written exam, and they aren’t helped by South Bend’s schools. The city’s high school graduation rate has declined to 77%—about 11 points lower than statewide—from 83% in 2015. Failing schools may also be contributing to higher crime since most violence is perpetrated by young men who aren’t in school or employed.
    [...]

    No wonder the people that know him are not endorsing him:

    Michelle Frick'n OBAMA!...

    Tucker Carlson: Obama has not backed Biden because Michelle Obama could run

    Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Monday speculated that former President Obama has not backed his former vice president, Joe Biden, in the 2020 presidential race because his wife, Michelle Obama, may still enter the 2020 presidential race — despite her numerous previous comments insisting she won’t run for president.

    “Don’t bet against Michelle Obama,” Carlson said on his show Monday night. “Last week, the former first lady issued a statement saying that she has no interest in being president. That's what she claimed. But there are signs that that's not true."

    More evidence of Michelle running...

    Obama Chides Biden over Failure to Connect to Iowa Voters: ‘You Know Who Really Doesn’t Have It? Joe Biden’

    President Barack Obama reportedly took a swipe at his former vice president Joe Biden during a recent meeting with a Democratic presidential candidate, saying that Biden “really doesn’t have it” in establishing a bond with the electorate, especially in Iowa.

    In the course of counseling an unnamed Democratic primary candidate, Obama emphasized the importance of connecting on a personal level with Iowa voters, drawing on the relationship he established with early primary state voters in 2008, and explaining that he “doesn’t have it” anymore because such a connection withers over time.

    “And you know who really doesn’t have it? Joe Biden,” he went on to say, according to a lengthy Politico article that details Obama’s role in counseling the 2020 Democratic field.

    This story keeps getting better... so around the time Hunter was cheating on his wife with his dead brother's wife he was cheating on her with a stripper:

    Arkansas woman impregnated by Hunter Biden was Washington DC stripper called Dallas

    The Arkansas woman who was recently revealed by a court-ordered DNA test to given birth to a child father by Hunter Biden’s son was a stripper at a Washington, D.C., club.

    Lunden Roberts, 28, worked as an exotic dancer at Mpire Club, near Dupont Circle, just blocks from the White House, where Biden, 49, was a regular, according to the New York Post. Biden, a former lobbyist who has struggled with drug and alcohol addiction, is the son of 2020 Democratic candidate Joe Biden, 77.

    Around the time Roberts became pregnant with "Baby Doe" - the gender of the child was not revealed in court proceedings triggered by Hunter Biden's refusal to admit paternity - Hunter Biden was dating Halle Biden, 44, the widow of his brother Beau, who died of brain cancer in 2015 at age 46.

    They need to make a made for TV movie out of this story... They can call it "Hunter does Dallas".


    OMG... Hunter is a crack smoking, sex addict:
    'Lap dancers used a sex toy on Hunter Biden at a New York club' and his baby mama Lunden Roberts 'was a stripper named Dallas he met in a club in Washington that he frequented after dating his brother's widow'


    • Hunter Biden is accused of having an employee at the Larry Flynt’s Hustler Club NYC in Manhattan go out to purchase a sex toy to use on him
    • The 49-year-old allegedly went to the club twice about a year ago
    • He allegedly spent thousands with a female companion and made a staffer buy him a dildo for strippers to use on him in a private room, Page Six reports
    • Biden also frequented The Mpire Gentlemen's Club in Washington, D.C.
    • It was there he reported met Lunden Roberts, the mother of Hunter Biden's love child, who worked as a stripper with the stage name 'Dallas'
    • Page Six reports that Biden was 'well known' at The Mpire Gentlemen's Club
    • Roberts allegedly worked there around the time she became pregnant
    • Biden was recently accused of using drug's at a club called Archibald's, which is three blocks away
    • Roberts filed a paternity suit against Biden in May, claiming he was the father of her child and asking for child support
    • Biden is 'not expected to challenge the results of the DNA test'

    Since when do you care about the sexual habits of kids of political figures? You’re pretty uninterested in the sorted and gross sexual history of “Drumpf,” which I’ll admit I don’t care that much about anymore. Our First Lady is a former escort.

    Yeah but the real entertainment will come when Hunter is testifying in front of the Senate about all of this during the impeachment trial and Joe starts yelling at reporters (and the clouds) when they ask him about it.

    Not long ago an obituary appeared in the Salt Lake Tribune that said the recently departed had "died doing what he enjoyed most—watching BYU lose."

    IDK... Maybe because Hunter will be the GOP'ers 'top witness' and they run the senate. I bet the senate hearing will get much better ratings than the dumb house committee got with their boring crap show. That was even boring to read about.

    This is something the whole country can agree on. I'm worried that she may not yet be 35 years old.

    Part of it is based on academic grounds. Among major conferences, the Pac-10 is the best academically, largely because of Stanford, Cal and UCLA. “Colorado is on a par with Oregon,” he said. “Utah isn’t even in the picture.”
