“Democratic misfires in the effort to remove Trump have left the party in the conundrum in which it now finds itself: faced with a socialist candidate or a Bloomy-Butti 2020 ticket; yikes!” by Chef Cheryl La Tigre
WINTER SESSION 2020
BLOG POST #3,400 AT THE AICP-END
259 DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2020
At the time of this writing, I stand by what I said yesterday: Bloomy-Butti 2020; what a ticket…
Honolulu, HI 96782, 02-21-2020 Friday: Referring back to Wednesday night’s debate in Las Vegas, Nevada, one of my most favorite places in the world, I have to say, this debate was the first that lived up to expectations. The gloves came off early, the claws came out, the long knives flashed and slashed, and it gave Democratic (and other curious) voters something from which to begin making decisions.
Again, I will remind you, as things NOW stand, I plan on voting for the current president. I am not voting for him because I think he is an upstanding character but because of what he has done as well as the numerous missteps made by members of my party in their pursuit of him.
Millions of people were shocked that he won in 2016. Millions of people decided to take a chance and give him their votes. Much of what he has done is benefitting the American people. Some of the things he has done have embarrassed us. However, unless the current batch of Democrats seeking to replace him ‘get real,’ there is no way any of them is going to replace him.
Let me say this, too: I was proud of Barack Obama, that he was one of ours. I am ashamed of him, too, as the mess that has put American against American began with him. There is no way that he did not know what was going on when the FBI was surveilling candidate Trump both before and after he won the 2016 Election. No way. I refuse to believe President Obama did not know.
The short story is that the tools used to deny Trump the election and then to drive him from the White House has led us to where we now find ourselves. We are in a place where our candidates are either unelectable or so far over the left edge of the political scale that if one of them wins the nomination, his or her electoral defeat will be the death of a once-proud party.
I am grateful that the remaining candidates seeking the nomination finally found the necessary fire within their bellies to display emotion. I have no doubt that former Vice President Joe Biden or that Senators Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar do not believe in what they say.
The problem is this: the pursuit of Trump via the Robert S. Mueller III investigation into Trump-Russia collusion and then the ludicrous impeachment of the president has put us where we now find ourselves. In a pickle. One in which upcoming generations of Americans believe everything should be free while common sense politicians have little to no chance of ever winning the nomination.
Which is why Mayor Bloomberg is on the scene, throwing money at everyone. I suspect that after we see tomorrow’s results in Nevada, we will see another one dropping out. I would think it could be Senator Klobuchar. I mean, how much money can she be raking in?
The bags of cash are flowing into the coffers of Bernie, of Liz, perhaps of Mayor Pete. Joe has to be struggling but he is holding on so he can see if his ‘Southern firewall’ is going to come through for him a week from tomorrow. If it doesn’t materialize, I suspect he will be gone.
That will leave us with Bloomberg, Bernie, probably Liz, and Mayor Pete. What a choice for Democrats who will never cross the divide as I have done and said I will again. As I mentioned yesterday, I can now envision a Bloomy-Butti 2020 Ticket and here is why:
Bloomberg can buy the nomination. He’s old, he needs someone to attract younger, more diverse folks hence Mayor Pete. However, the relationship will be a cold one such as George H.W. Bush and Dan Quayle, one in which the president kept his vice president out of the loop on virtually everything. It was for show.
I truly do not believe Bernie can win the White House nor do I believe Liz Warren can. Amy? She might have been an attractive candidate a decade ago but now, she is too far right for the average, youthful Democratic voter. Again, I predict Bloomy-Butti 2020 ticket.
Care to dispute my prediction? I am all ears.
Aloha. See you tomorrow. Love you all.

Up-and-coming Bakersfield, California, street artist, Simone, created this cartoonish caricature of me so we can keep our identities on the down low due to increasing threats, Web intrusions and threats, and so we do not lose our professional businesses because of our politics here at the AICP-END Blogs.
That said, I began my career in the early 1970’s when I apprenticed to cook under one of the masters on the Big Island where I was born. I moved to Oahu in the early 1980’s after having worked in both Kona and Hilo, HI, and have been there for most of my professional career.
Moreover, I have also worked on Maui for a few years (1995-1998) and have been on Kauai (2001-2003) before returning to Honolulu. My goal is to prepare the next generation of chefs for the future and to help the underprivileged in their struggle to attain careers in the foodservice industry.
