Howie Carr: State of Union under Harris scary 2024 scenario

Kamala Harris did what she does best last night at the State of the Union address – she just sat there and didn’t say a word, just nodded and clapped at Dementia Joe’s senescent babbling as she vacantly stared straight ahead.

It hasn’t been a good last couple of years for Kamala, and her problems were all laid out at some length earlier this week in the New York Times, which is the official religious tract of the Democrat Party.

Among the Times’ themes was the “quiet panic” among Democrat politicians that she might somehow end up as the party nominee next year. Some of the top leftists “confided privately that they had lost hope in her.”

Say it ain’t so! What a bunch of racists they are.

But there was pushback in the story from Kamala, and this was what Kamala offered in her own defense:

“I find it off-putting to just engage in platitudes.”

Let others try to make sense of Brandon’s nonsense last night. I want to concentrate this morning on what comes post-Biden – a woman who finds it off-putting to engage in platitudes.

Let’s go straight to the audio. All dialogue guaranteed verbatim:

“I think of this moment as a moment that is about great momentum inspired by yes optimism, inspired by a crisis no doubt um but inspired also by our collective ability to see what can be unburdened by what has been and that’s critically important.”

Indeed. Who can argue with that?

The mark of a great orator, indeed a great thinker, is to leave the audience with a few indelible memories. In this next case, the impression is of… generations.

“And by the way when we talk about our small businesses it – not only is it intergenerational but also we’ve got entrepreneurs in their teens and twenties to families who have been doing this for generations, and in you know our seniors and so it’s really that’s also what’s also exciting about our small businesses and who they are ‘cause it spans the generations in addition to being intergenerational.”

There you have it. One of the Democrat hacks quoted in the Times – Douglas Brinkley – had his own prescription as to how his political cult should deploy this great national treasure known as Kamala.

“It’s better to let Kamala be Kamala.”

Let’s face it, this deep thinker is miscast in her role as “border czar.” She’s more into… work. She loves to talk about work, even more than she likes to talk about school buses, or astronauts, or the Man in the Moon. Work, work, work.

“Today the business of our work is for the Council to report on the work that has occurred since our last meeting across these areas. We will today also discuss the work yet ahead – the work that we must still do to continue to move forward.”

Whoever she’s with, whatever subject Kamala is discussing, it always comes back to that one word, the W word. Now she’s addressing some Jamaicans.

“We will work together, and continue to work together to address these issues, and to work together as we continue to work operating from the new norms, rules and agreements, that we will continue to work together. We will work on this together.”

Then there are all those trillions of dollars in funny money that’s been printed in order to provide for… what’s that word again, Kamala?

“We are doing the work that is about collaborating around the small businesses that will need to do the work that will be the result of all the trillions of dollars we’re putting into the infrastructure of our country including the almost trillion dollars that we’re going to be putting into a whole new economy called the clean-energy economy, right?

Right you are Madam Vice President, or President as Brandon sometimes calls you.

And yet, according to the Times, “most Democrats” feel that despite her keen mind, her dazzling intellect, she cannot be elected next year. They said this “flatly.”

“Some said the party’s biggest challenge would be finding a way to sideline her without inflaming key Democratic constituencies that would take offense.”

How dare they?! How dare they try to dump this proud… friend of Willie Brown’s? A woman with a firm grasp of the intricacies of what makes America tick.

“Today America has more than a half-million miles of transmission lines, enough to wrap around the globe 24 times. These lines connect the power plants where electricity is created to homes and businesses and schools and hospitals across our nation.”

This is fascinating stuff. Please elaborate.

“Think about it every time you turn on a light or charge a laptop or plug in your air conditioner or put leftovers in the ‘fridge. You rely on the power delivered by our nation’s network of transmission lines.”

You don’t say!

And it’s not the power grid that understands so well, it’s economics in general.

“Let’s talk about how you get a line of credit. Who of us grew up with our parents talking about a phrase, line of credit, right? This, these are things you learn if someone takes the time to teach you because they know.”

Next, she meets with more foreign leaders.

“I convened and I have convened now at least three times now uh a group that has as their acronym Caricom, it is the Caribbean nations, island nations in the western hemisphere. That is where the Caribbean is. We are also in the western hemisphere. They are our neighbors.”

Kamala Harris in ’24. What could possibly go wrong?
