TODAY'S DEMOCRATS ARE NO JACK KENNEDY

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY AUGUST 6, 2019

         DID YOU WATCH LAST WEEK’S DOG AND PONY SHOW -- THE SO-CALLED DEBATES AMONG THE DEMOCRAT PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES? I CALL THEM SO-CALLED DEBATES BECAUSE THEY WERE LITTLE MORE THAN REHEARSED SOUNDBITES AND LUDICROUS QUESTIONS BY CNN ANCHORS, INCLUDING THE INTELLECTUALLY CHALLENGED NON-JOURNALIST, DON LEMON. IT WAS LEMON WHO OPENLY DESCRIBED PRESIDENT TRUMP AS A RACIST.

         NOT ONE OF THE 20 CANDIDATES SPOKE OPTIMISTICALLY ABOUT AMERICA. TO LISTEN TO THEM YOU WOULD THINK THE ENTIRE COUNTRY IS IN DESPAIR, LIKE RESIDENTS OF A THIRD-WORLD COUNTRY. WHERE WAS THE OPTIMISM THAT HAS ALWAYS CHARACTERIZED AMERICA? WHERE WAS THE PROMOTION OF SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE AND THE CHALLENGE FOR OTHERS TO BECOME SUCCESSFUL? IT WAS ALL ABOUT ATTACKING THE WEALTHY AND CORPORATIONS AND OF COURSE PRESIDENT TRUMP. YOU WON’T HAVE TO DO ANYTHING FOR YOURSELF; GOVERNMENT WILL DO IT FOR YOU AND PAY FOR IT BY TAXING THE SUCCESSFUL AND CREATING EVEN MORE MASSIVE DEBT.

         ONCE, RESPONSIBLE DEMOCRATS RAN FOR OFFICE. THIS BUNCH IS UNLIKE ANY OF THEM. WHERE HAVE YOU GONE JACK KENNEDY? OUR NATION TURNS ITS LONELY EYES TO YOU. I’M CAL THOMAS.
