FoxNews.com reports that
Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez has ramped up the rhetoric ahead of 2020, claiming “democracy as we know it” is at stake next year.
Speaking about his party’s crowded crop of 2020 hopefuls, Perez said he believes there are many talented options who can defeat “Hurricane Donald” at the ballot box.
“ Everyone in the democratic family is going to come together because we understand it’s our democracy as we know it that’s on the ballot,” Perez said Sunday during an appearance on ABC’s “This Week.”
“This is Hurricane Donald. It’s a category 5 storm. In the eye of the storm is our democracy. We need to take our democracy back.
“All our candidates understand the gravity of the moment. They understand whoever wins, they’ll support the Democrat.
“Howard Schultz said if I can’t win, I’m not going to run. I appreciate that.”
In the same interview, Perez defended the criteria to qualify for the party’s next presidential primary debate, calling it a “fair bar” for the White House hopefuls to meet.
Perez’s comments come ahead of the upcoming Democratic debate on Thursday, where 10 candidates meeting the required 2 percent support in four qualifying polls and 130,000 unique donors will be on stage in Houston, Texas. The criteria to qualify for Thursday’s debate increased from the previous two, where 20 candidates sparred in two debates over consecutive nights.
“It’s going to be up to the voters to decide who this candidate is and I think our process has been the most fair, transparent and inclusive process in the history of the Democratic primary,” he said.
Perez’s comments come amid criticism from numerous mid-tier Democratic presidential primary hopefuls who failed to make the cut for Thursday’s debate.
While the criticism is not new – the DNC faced similar jabs earlier this year when many of the longer-shots for the nomination struggled to make the stage at the first and second round of debates – this time around the national party committee is specifically being attacked over the dearth of qualifying polls. Critics say this is unfairly preventing candidates close to qualifying from actually making the stage.
Before I begin, please allow me to tell you that I am no political pundit.
I am just an average guy who began writing back in April of 2010 in order to vent my frustration with the destruction of the America being wrought by President Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm) and his Democrat henchmen and women in Congress.
And, I believe that DNC Chairman and Radical Hispanic Political Tom Perez is absolutely wrong.
That being said, I have no wish to see a repeat of the nightmarish 8 years known as the Obama Presidency.
I do not believe that the overwhelming majority of Americans living between the coasts do, either.
Here is why I believe that President Trump will be re-elected.
Last night, American Citizens from coast to coast heard from a man who genuinely LOVES America and her people, instead of viewing us all as racist, misogynist, xenophobes…the 45th President of the United States of America, Donald J. Trump.
Just like Trump did with his refusal early in his campaign to “act more presidential”, he is still taking his message directly to the American People.
You see, Gentle Readers, Trump has always been a “people person”.
That is the reason that, when he was still a contributor to Fox News, he would speak to everyone in the building, from the maintenance crew, on up the ladder.
As Sam Walton, the Founder of Walmart, knew, you don’t inspire people by acting imperious and above it all.
“Mr. Sam”, until his health would no longer allow him to do so, would travel to Walmart Stores in his old pickup truck, with a tie and a baseball cap on, visiting the employees, in order to find out how his stores were doing.
He knew that the only way to be successful and to stay in touch with the public, was to be out among them, and speak to them honestly and directly, as one would speak to a friend.
Just as President Trump did when he went on a “Thank You” Tour and as he continues with his Daily Tweets to the American People..
The Political Establishment, of both parties, lost that concept, a long time ago.
Bypassing the borders to communication, historically determined by both political parties and the Main Stream Media, is a concept which I first witnessed being used by a Presidential Candidate in the 1980 Presidential Election, the before-mentioned Ronald Wilson Reagan.
While I am not comparing the two, I am noting that this strategy has proved effective for both men.
As the polls continue to show, Trump continues to strike a resonant chord in the hearts of Average Americans, living here in the part of America, which the snobbish Political Elites refer to as “Flyover Country”, but which we refer to as “America’s Heartland”, or, quite simply, “HOME”.
The reason being, President Trump is keeping his promises, as he reminded us last night.
He does not talk down to us while disparaging our Sovereign Nation, as his predecessor did.
Trump talks to us in a plain-spoken, clearly understood way, a style which is in stark contrast to an opposition party full of professional politicians, whose only interest is the regaining of power in Washington, D.C., at whatever the cost.
That is why the Democrats continue to attempt to impeach the president without actually impeaching him.
My fellow average Americans, we are only a means back to power for the “Party of Special Interest Groups”, known as the Far Left Democratic Party.
Last night, the President of the United States of America, the most powerful man in the world, made the average Americans whom the Democrats named “Deplorables” feel good about ourselves and our role in determining our future.
The Democrats, as exemplified by their Chairman, Tom Perez, still refuse to admit that America is a Constitutional Republic, NOT a Democracy governed by mob rule.
Our Founding Fathers ensured that e3very citizens vote would be equal and that every state would be important in choosing our president.
That means that my vote here in Northwest Mississippi means just as much as those Americans who reside in the heavily populated areas on the East and Left Coasts.
All of the economic progress made, the strengthening of our military, the Campaign Promises kept, his championing of average Americans, and his unequaled advocacy for American Exceptionalism makes President Donald J. Trump a “radical change” worth keeping in office for 4 more years.
Until He Comes,
