Guess Who the Left Wants to Run for President Now?

The drug-fried brains of the Liberals has to work hard to come up with some of their nonsense, and this latest offering should get half of California committed, and all of DC.

Believe it or not, there are Leftist who would like to see California Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown run for president.

And you thought that wanting Biden was the bottom of the barrel?!

As reported in the Washington Post,

Amid the breathless speculation as to whether Vice President Biden will get into the Democratic presidential race — and, if not Biden, then who else? — there’s one name that’s consistently overlooked: Jerry Brown.

Yes, that Jerry Brown. The one who was governor of California at age 36 way back in 1974. The one who ran for president in 1976, 1980 and 1992. The one whose eccentricities earned him the name “Governor Moonbeam.” And the one who got elected governor, again, in 2010 at the age of 72 and reelection at 76 (!) last year.

Even they have the good sense to question this logic, as the article continues,

Sound crazy? It’s not. Really.

Then it gives a LIST of reasons that Brown is a contender, all but admitting that Hillary Clinton is a candidate so flawed that even a guy nicknamed “Moonbeam” could enter and beat her.

First, consider what Brown has said about the 2016 race — and the problems that Hillary Clinton has encountered in it. Here’s Brown in an interview this week with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer in which Blitzer pressed Brown on why he has yet to endorse a candidate in the presidential race:

I would say, though, it is early. You could have a lot of big surprises, a lot of action between now and the first Iowa caucus and the New Hampshire primary. A lot’s going to happen in the Republican primary, and I think some things could happen on the Democratic side as well.

Next, they say that Brown may be the person willing to bring Hillary Clinton’s true nature to light, and not get run over in rush-hour traffic.

“…Brown told “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd over the summer that Clinton’s e-mail issue was “almost like a vampire, she’s going to have to find a stake and put it right through the heart of these e-mails.””

And what about this little jewel?

Then remember that despite the fact that Brown is playing nicey-nicey with the Clintons at the moment, there isn’t much love lost there. When Brown ran for president in 1992, he stayed in the race all the way through the June California primary — where he lost to Bill Clinton by only seven points. The Clinton team made no secret of their unhappiness about how long Brown lingered.

Then there was the moment in a March 1992 debate where Brown savaged Clinton over his and his wife’s ties to the Rose Law Firm. “He is funneling money to his wife’s law firm for state business,” said Brown of Bill Clinton. “It’s the kind of conflict of interest that’s incompatible with the kind of public servant we expect.” If you think the Clintons — or Brown — has forgotten about that accusation, you don’t understand how politics works.

Can you say, “Clinton Foundation scandal?”

Again I remind you of the desperate nature of the Democrats. Brown is 72 years old, and the Democrats consider him viable. Another old weird white dude to add to the campaign of old weird white dudes.
