But Of Course Kamala Harris Is Competent To Run The Country

How can anyone doubt that Harris has what it takes to run the entire country?

Sen. Kamala Harris’ campaign is in deep trouble. The senator was once seen as one of the most promising contenders for the Democratic nomination. Now she seems stuck in the low single digits. And those who know how her campaign has been run don’t seem exactly surprised. The New York Times talked to “more than 50 current and former campaign staff members and allies” who described in detail how the campaign seems to have made one bad decision after another while failing to manage personnel very effectively.

The unhappiness within Harris’ team was evident in the resignation letter of Kelly Mehlenbacher, the campaign’s state operations director, in November. “This is my third presidential campaign and I have never seen an organization treat its staff so poorly,” Mehlenbacher wrote, criticizing the leaders of the campaign for laying off staffers without notice. She went on to say that “with less than 90 days until Iowa we still do not have a real plan to win.” Even though Mehlenbacher emphasized that she still thinks “Harris is the strongest candidate” for the general election, “I no longer have confidence in our campaign or its leadership.”

After all, running a campaign is a really, really, complicated thing, right?

A President could delegate personnel management, as our current one wisely delegated macroeconomic strategy to Kudlow, Moore, and Laffer. Harris’s grasp of the Constitution – such as her assurance that she can grab our guns because “I have the will!” – renders her unqualified even for her current Senate seat. What will kill her campaign, though, is this and all her other policy positions, bold enough both to collect headlines and to force her to back away from them. She clearly has no point to running; only an Inspiring Narrative of race and gender.

There is a fairly widespread perception of Harris that she is cunning, mean spirited, but one of those women who flat-backed her way into some success.

Isn’t Kamala Harris supposed to be “Black”? That photograph has to be wrong — like those photos of Liawatha that don’t show her with her tomahawk.

Jamaican, whose family apparently at one time owned African slaves.

The black half is. But now she is African-American and fully able to commiserate with the millions living under the “legacy of slavery,” such as Kaepernick.

The lady does remind me of those blue-eyed blond aborigines who are all so oppressed.

Harris slagged of Gabbard saying that she wouldn’t engage with her because Gabbard was a low tier candidate and that she was a top tier candidate. Gabbard has just passed her in the polls. Sweet revenge. Harris has also shuttered her New Hampshire campaign to focus on Iowa, which hasn’t gone down well in either state. But this is the reason why Harris shouldn’t be POTUS : “ GABBARD: I want to bring the conversation back to the broken criminal justice system that is disproportionately negatively impacting black and brown people all across this country today. Now Senator Harris says… Read more »
