So...Joe Walsh

Not that one, the other one.

You don't know of another one?

Well, this one is a talk show host who had a term in the House (IL-8) until the Democrats gerrymandered him out of there. Now he is running for President in the primary against Trump.

My question is: why?

He has to know he won't win that primary. Whoever is backing him knows he won't win. He's a nobody who will remain that way. So why waste the time and money? Why waste the ink and airtime and bytes reporting on him?

Follow the money he and his circle will make.....
You know, I guess I give my fellow humans too much credit for not wanting to embarrass themselves with obvious scams. Look at Jill Stein's blatant panhandling, then "repurposing" those donations into her own pocket. Look at Michael Avenatti, still out there hoofing even though his crimes are headline news.

I also give my fellow humans too much credit for common sense, which is why people like Jill Stein and Michael Avenatti and Joe Walsh have supporters who can't pay their electric bill, but will send their rich hero money.

I'm not sure which is more annoying: the grifters or the fools who get taken in by them.

I agree with you here, Walsh is a monstrous tea-partier and does not belong in the White House.

I was listening to a clip of him saying that all his GOP colleagues in DC think Trump won't win. :killingme I thought "he must be delusional - because I've not heard that ONE time up to him saying that!" :rolleyes:

Can't wait to see who is backing him, I'm sure we'll see soon enough. He'll fizzle out soon enough, though, I'm sure. :yay:

Bill Kristol, for one, is backing him along with assorted other Never-Trumper Republicans. But why? Why that dork? He's a nobody who can't possibly win, or even make a decent showing. Is Trump so popular that this is the best they could come up with?

It's crazy.

I would rather have a Tea Partier in the White House that lives buy the Constitution.
Compared to Pete whom can't run a small city, but you believe he can run 300 million of us.
You might want to take a vacation to Indiana and see it yourself first hand.

South Bend is doing better than Trump Casinos, Trump University, The Apprentice....

Has to be.

Bill Kristol is an insipid tool - does he have a ton of money? They either have something on Walsh, or they all think this is going to make them all a lot of money via the exposure alone. :rolleyes:

Vrai says "He's a nobody who will remain that way. So why waste the time and money?"

His time is cheap and he won't be spending his money.
Cruising around the country on someones else's dime is not a bad deal.

Bernie is loving it, and he isn't going to be elected either.

I think Walsh is the only one on the right willing to sabotage Trump's second term. I see this as nothing more than a feeler to see if it's worth running third party in the general to take votes away from Trump. He is willing to lose, handing the win to the democrat for the sole purpose of getting Trump out.

That's your comparable???? lol

The Trump Organization. This is the latest accepted revision, reviewed on 21 August 2019. The Trump Organization is the collective name for a group of approximately 500 business entities of which Donald Trump is the sole or principal owner. Approximately 250 entities use the Trump name.

So three businesses failed,,,, lol.. he's a damn good business man..

How about we talk about the crime stats for South Bend that Petey can't seem to change?

He is never going to get enough votes to hand the win over the Democrats, he does not have that kind of clout. Trump is extremely more popular than he was the firsr time around. I daresay there will be a landslide this time around.

I don't think he has any intentions of beating the democrats nominee. I think he just wants Trump out and will fall on his sword to make that happen.

Ok, sounds like Trump has nothing to worry about then. He’ll get re-elected by a landslide and Mayor Pete can run for a third term.

In the three years before Buttigieg took office, South Bend police reported an average of 6,845 crimes in the most serious categories tracked by the FBI, according to annual statistics dating back to 2009. Since 2012, Buttigieg’s first year in office, the city has averaged 5,890 reported crimes in those categories.
That’s a 14% reduction

The Apprentice was one of the most successful series NBC had - ran for 15 seasons. Celebrity Apprentice for what, 8?
All shows end, and they were successful.

Find anything, no matter how minuscule, to show Trump is a failure. I don't know how anyone can look at someone has a net worth of over $3 billion and claim that's a failure.
