DAVID BROOKS FORESEES RISE OF JERRY BROWN IN 2016 DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL NOMINATION RACE
Breitbart ^ | Jan 24, 2104 | Staff

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!

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 Jed’s 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
(go’n back to the Hills they are, fish’n holes, country and western stars)

Well now it’s time to say goodbye to Jed and all his kin
They would like to thank you folks for kindly dropping in
You’re 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 Y’all come back now, ya hear?)

That's certainly true, Brooks is certifiable!

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!

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.

MOONBEAM!

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.

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.

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. :)
