A veritable nobody whom only a few across the nation recognize declared his candidacy for president Friday, likely leading many to ask, “Who the heck is that!?”
It wasn’t a reprise of the 2016 Democrat field — Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. It wasn’t one of the frequently mentioned Democrat faces in the Senate who are talked about as potential presidential timber, like California’s Kamala Harris, New York’s Kirsten Gillibrand, or even Massachusetts fake Cherokee Elizabeth Warren.
It was U.S. Rep. John Delaney, a Democrat politician from Maryland who entered the world of politics only four years ago, when he transitioned from being a wealthy financier to a junior member of the House Democrats.
Since that time he hasn’t done anything particularly noteworthy, save for publish a statement to his website Friday announcing his bid for the 2020 election, and post an op-ed to The Washington Post peppered with lies.
“The current administration is making us less prosperous and less secure,” he wrote. “I’m running because I have an original approach to governing and an economic policy that can put us on a different course.”
Wrong. Under the administration of President Donald Trump, prosperity appears to be on the rise, with new jobs surfacing daily and gross domestic product doubling in the first quarter to a high of 2.6 percent between April and June, according to data from the Commerce Department.
Furthermore, Delaney’s so-called “original approach” seems like a rehash of the Democrat Party’s failed policies.
He wants to “encourage a more just and inclusive form of capitalism,” which in liberal mouths means using quotas to promote so-called “diversity,” and “strengthen our safety-net programs and create a new social contract,” which is generally Democrat code for wasting more money on frequently abused welfare schemes.
In his column, Delaney also celebrated his belief “that government can do transformative things,” which coincides with the Democrat Party’s big government platform.
“But we have a lot of work to do,” he added, referencing the party’s recent electoral losses, “and we need a different approach — one that’s focused on the facts and the future.”
Considering the lies he told in his op-ed, I presume he meant “alternative facts,” but meh.
To be blunt, Delaney sounds no different from any other liberal Democrat who wants to try and turn the United States into a perfectly fair and just utopia by shoving government down the throats of everyday Americans.
And it’s for that reason that I don’t expect him to fare too well in the 2020 election, though we’ll see …
