Posted on 01/24/2014 10:47:09 PM PST by bkopto
On Friday's "NewsHour" on PBS, New York Times columnist David Brooks downplayed super PAC Priorities USA's decision to align itself with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential contest and predicted the rise of Gov. Jerry Brown (D-CA) as an outsider in the race.
"Well, they're trying to scare people out of the race," Brooks said. "It's the sound of doom. No, I don't think it's the sound of doom, but I do not think she is going to be coronated out of this. And the fact that some high-flying Washington establishment PAC is helping her is not going to necessarily help her. There is a great outsider hunger here. And I'm looking for an outsider. Gov. Jerry Brown of California, mark my words, he's going to run."

California is so clearly a model for success to be extrapolated across the nation..
Kim Jung Un is a more pure idealogue.
Clearly if anyone believes that - the world has turned upside down! My guess - David Brooks is a certified idiot!
Nobody knows, the trouble I've seen, nobody knows but me...
The NEW ballad of Jed Clampett
Come and listen to a story bout a man named Jed
Poor oil entrepreneur barely kept his family fed
Then one day he was working for some food,
And up through the town come a bumbling clown
(Brown that is, take a toke, what a joke)
Well the first thing you know old Jeds taxes are to much to bear,
Kin folk said Jed move away from there!
Said Kalifornia is no place for you to be
So they loaded up the truck and they moved from Beverly
(gon back to the Hills they are, fishn holes, country and western stars)
Well now its time to say goodbye to Jed and all his kin
They would like to thank you folks for kindly dropping in
Youre all invited back again to their new locality
To have a heaping helping of their hospitality
(Redneck Hillbillies, is what the press call em now,
Clingers of bibles and guns and to Obama no bow!
Nice folks Yall come back now, ya hear?)
DemocraTICK. Earned and deserved.
Regardless of whatever kind of nut job Moonbeam is, it takes someone clearly not in touch with reality to believe Brown will be Presidential material in 2016 or any decade!
Maybe Brooks believes the Dems are so completely off the rails (which they are) to "foresee rise of Jerry Brown ..........."
Books ready for Electro shock therapy?
Jerry Brown screwed up Oakland, as if anyone could make that city worse. And libs want him to run the country? Talk about scraping the bottom of the barrel for a candidate. Is he still driving that old Plymouth and smoking dope? What a role model!
We should encourage the Rats to nominate this assclown.
Brown will be 78 years old and wearing a slobber bib in 2016.
I'll edit my own post. We should encourage the Rats to nominate this assclown just like they're encouraging us to nominate Krispy Kreme.
No, no, no. You must understand. California is a grand laboratory for the progs. The Golden State is their test kitchen for commie policies. If one of their screwy ideas succeeds in driving this once-great state further into the ditch, then it's an idea ready, in their minds, to be loosed on the rest of the country.
Well, we done bounced from the east clear out to the west and now it’s bitin’ us in the ass.
We run outta room ‘cept to go up north and not many want to do that so now we gotta just duke it out down here.
Thank God someday we’ll catch a rest, and get to live on this planet the way it was meant to be lived.
I thought the Democrats hated rich old white guys.
i see david brooks got some colorado choom.
Yup, moonbeam, he's an outsider for sure! Outside the realm of reality that is, everything he touches he ruins. Apparently the majority of Californians that voted to re elect him Governor were to young to remember his first two terms or his term as Secretary of State or as mayor of Oakland or Attorney General. This clown has been sucking at the public teat for his whole life. And now he once again desires to destroy the state with a boondoggle bullet train while trying to tell people that the state is solvent while driving out business and wealth.
Great track record in California (sarcasm)
Thank God for hillbillies.
No way Brown beats Space Testicle Hillary.
She the SMRTest woman in the whirl.
All I know is that for most of my life, the worst stuff and started in California and spread to the nation. It’s hard to believe that this state used to vote for Republicans. That’s not likely to happen again in my lifetime.
I just hope all the lefties stay put out there and don’t come to the Red States to further impair our freedoms.
Democrats have the most incompetent selection as presidential contenders.
We’re not lucky enough to have this guy lose a landslide national election....
Brooks is as delusional as the old Jesuit himself
And yet they hold the white house
We may not have been the only ones who noticed that Hillary looked like she was auditioning for "Weekend at Bernie's 2016".
Other than Hillary, the Democrat field is pretty weak.
You are right that Dems have nothing but Hillary, and she has to be observing that the Democrats are hardly excited about that sorry fact.
Another case of a Soros propped candidate, but this time quite out of style, unattractive, and just plain old. I don’t think she will run if she thinks she’s going to have to work at it, like last time. The old girl won’t run against Jeb Bush and the Bush machine and that is what she is waiting on. Imho. :)
He’s even OLDER than Hitlery — isn’t he?
Brooks is trying to be the replacement for David Broder as the oh-so-serious pundit without a clue.
There are old dinosaurs whose time cannot wait. Biden, e.g.
We should check Brook’s travel records...he may have been in Colorado...that would explain this.
Actually better him than Hillary.
