how to play into hands of competition
Why would the President tweet this AM, even tweet about delaying the election? Why would he play right into the hands of the media and Democrats . Really, he did this? The tweet:
With Universal Mail-In Voting (not Absentee Voting, which is good), 2020 will be the most INACCURATE & FRAUDULENT Election in history. It will be a great embarrassment to the USA. Delay the Election until people can properly, securely and safely vote???
There’s a reason he is behind and can’t seem to make it up, and that tweet says it all. Plus, this will be all the news covers, missing some stories he might have liked.
some quick headlines
Remember the recall petition for the Seattle Mayor (“Summer of Love”)?
Well, a judge who ruled earlier this month that a recall petition against her could move ahead is holding to that decision.
A Superior Court Judge on Wednesday denied a motion by the Mayor that asked for a reconsideration of the ruling.
So for now, recall moves forward. The Mayor will likely appeal to a higher court.
So who backed down in Portland? Here’s what we know:
Gov. Brown and acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf announced the deal in separate statements, and gave differing accounts of how quickly the federal officers will withdraw.
Oregon’s Gov. Brown agreed Wednesday to send in state police to protect the federal courthouse in Portland. She said it will remove its additional officers and agents and that they will begin to leave Thursday.
For his part, Wolf said there was an agreement but that agents will stick around until the police prove they can — and will — protect the courthouse. He added that he’s been trying to get the local police to handle things for weeks.
So the question now is when do the federal agents leave, what happens to the courthouse, and do the protests end? Let’s see now.
One more time I will say the President should stay out of cities uninvited. Announce over and over he is ready, willing and able to assist when asked. Let the pressure be on the Mayors and Governors.
With Rep. LOUIE GOHMERT (Texas) getting the virus, it is a blow to the no mask group. An outspoken representative, this one will get much coverage and his from the hip comments will hurt. Like yesterday, he said the “mask may have contributed” to his getting the virus.
Today he announced he would be taking hydroxychloroquine. Not a surprise.
The President’s second greatest liability in this election is the whole mask and down playing the virus issue. This will highlight it. His biggest liability is his tweet finger.
The school issue is next up and is not going to be pretty. Trump and team want kids back in school, the left is hesitant, teachers’ unions opposed and parents divided. The President may be on the wrong side here too. It might be better to be for school as soon as possible and not now.
