DNC Lowers Price For Photo Op With Kamala Harris After Failing To Sell Enough Tickets

#DNC #Lowers #Price #Photo #Kamala #Harris #Failing #Sell #Tickets

Tara Palmeri of The Washington Mall shared a rather humorous sounding scoop that the DNC has lowered photo op prices with Vice President Kamala Harris from $15,000 to $5,000 after the big price tag failed to sell enough tickets.

Apparently, some prices are going down in this economy.

The argument can be made that this is just par for the course in regular fundraising. In fact, DNC Deputy Communications Director Daniel Wessel says just that:

“The DNC works with our hosts and fundraisers to set specific ticket prices for each event. As has always been the case, there are a variety of ticket levels for every event as is pretty standard for finance events.”

Surprisingly, not everyone is buying what the DNC is selling… both literally, and figuratively it would seem.

Could it be her dismal polling numbers? Her inability to keep her office fully staffed? The often lamented ‘impossible’ assignments she’s been given, or is it that the poor VP is getting bullied by racist, sexist white men? First, let’s take a look at the numbers.

Polling Numbers So Low Even Dick Cheney Looks Pretty Good

A USA Today – Suffolk University poll clocked the VP’s approval rating at a rock bottom 28%. That’s lower than former VP alum Dick Cheney.

And it’s lower than Biden’s, who at this point in his presidency is the most unpopular president since polling began in 1945. 

But to give the embattled VP some credit, it’s not just her numbers that have taken a nose dive. According to an NBC News poll, Americans ranked the Democratic Party lower than former President Trump.

It’s relatively typical for Vice Presidents to have approval ratings in the same neighborhood as their President. So there could be an argument that perhaps good old Joe is just dragging her down. 

Recently there has been chatter that perhaps President Biden shouldn’t run for a second term because apparently, and I guess the Democrats just realized this, he’s old. So if he weren’t to run in 2024, the assumption would be that, of course, his Vice President would be the presumptive Democratic nominee in 2024. 

Democratic King and possibly Queen maker Congressman Jim Clyburn announced his good word on the subject, stating:

“Right now, I’m for Biden, and second I’m for Harris – that’s one and two on the ticket, but that’s one and two in my heart as well.”

He goes on to say:

“…I’m for Biden and then I’m for Harris – either together or in that order.”

Staffers Better Keep Their LinkedIn Profiles Up To Date…

If Harris does run for President again and makes it back into the White House, I hope she can keep a fully manned staff to help her, you know… do her job. Staffers have been steadily jumping from the sinking U.S.S Kamala since her ascension to the VP office.

By my count, we have the following escapees:

  • Communications Director Ashley Etienne in November
  • Press Secretary Symone Sanders in December
  • Speechwriter Kate Childs Graham in February
  • Deputy Press Secretary Sabrina Singh in March
  • Chief of Staff Tina Flournoy in April 

Why would anyone want to leave such a prestigious job as working for the office of the Vice President? Sometimes, it’s the boss.

An anonymous former staffer told the Washington Post:

“With Kamala you have to put up with a constant amount of soul-destroying criticism and also her own lack of confidence.”

Sounds eerily familiar to some of my old Commanders. I feel ya’ pal.

But The Job Is Just So… Hard

The main argument left-wing Harris sympathizers like to tout is that the Vice President has been set up by none other than the President. Generally speaking, the Vice President role is pretty nebulous.

Its only real stated job is to preside as President of the Senate. Oh, and not embarrass the office of the President. Which should be easy, given that Joe tends to do that well enough on his own. 

The other job of the VP is to do whatever the President tells them to do. She was given some pretty big jobs; one that she has failed most elegantly at is addressing the illegal immigration crisis. 

She has recently been assigned to head the newly launched ‘Task Force to address online harassment and abuse.‘ Otherwise known as a repackaged Disinformation Board.

The goal of this task force? To “develop programs and policies” to protect “political figures” and journalists from “disinformation.”

Shouldn’t it be the other way around? Shouldn’t the American people be protected against disinformation from political figures and journalists? 

Luckily for the VP, she will have help. Others assigned to the task force include the Department of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas. So maybe they can multi-task and do something about her other assignment and secure the border?

If It Wasn’t For White Men, Harris Would Be Doing Great

Joy Reid, well known for her in-depth political analysis, claims the veep would have better approval numbers if it wasn’t for racist white guys. 

“Most of the media is still white and male. And their take on Kamala Harris becomes the take.”

Ah yes, the ever-popular and intellectually lazy argument that mass racism and sexism are to blame. An argument that gets a lot of play from the Democratic Party’s bag of tricks. 

Reid goes on to say:

“She’s just a regular sister in the same way people would always say that Michelle Obama is like if your cousin became first lady. Kamala Harris is like if your cousin became VP of the United States.”

Don’t get me wrong, I was not and am not a fan of former First Lady Obama. But in no way would I say VP Harris is anywhere near the same political weight class as Mrs. Obama. 

Finally, and easily my favorite argument:

“I think she doesn’t get to show that personality often enough, and so people haven’t had a chance to get to know her.”

She could have the best personality in the world, and it wouldn’t cover up her ineffective leadership ability. 

The truth is, she’s just not good at her job. The numbers show it, the mass exodus of staffers shows it, her poor performance or lack thereof in the office itself shows it, and you just can’t put a price on ineffectual leadership. No matter what race or gender the leader is.

Exclusive: Grand jury in Fulton County, Georgia, subpoenas Giuliani, Eastman, and Graham over Jan. 6 conspiracy – TalkOfNews.com

WASHINGTON, DC - NOVEMBER 6: (L-R) President Donald Trump shakes hands with Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) during an event about judicial confirmations  in the East Room of the White House on November 6, 2019 in Washington, DC. More than 150 of the president's federal judicial nominees have been confirmed by the Republican-controlled Senate. (Photo by Drew Angerer/Getty Images)

It’s not the House select committee on Jan. 6 that wants a better look at many of those involved in Donald Trump’s scheme to overturn the results of the 2020 election. Thanks to their wide-ranging activities in many states, investigations are going on at the local, state, and federal level into actions that Trump’s team took in attempting to reverse the will of the American people.

No state may have borne more of Trump’s focused fury than Georgia. President Joe Biden carried the state by over 12,500 votes, making it second to Arizona when it comes to the the narrowest margin of victory. This was far outside the realm of possible change that might be addressed by a recount, but Georgia conducted a recount anyway. When that didn’t make things any better for Trump, he requested that Georgia count a third time, which it did. Trump still lost, and by a bigger number than ever.

But Trump wasn’t done with Georgia. Right up until Jan. 6, Trump’s team tried every possible way to steal Georgia’s electoral votes. And now some of the most familiar names in MAGA land are getting hauled before a grand jury in Fulton County, Georgia. That includes Rudy Giuliani, Sen. Lindsey Graham, and attorney John Eastman.

Exclusive: NEW POLL: Overturning Roe Very Unpopular in Battleground States, Giving Democrats Opportunity With Key Voters – TalkOfNews.com

 More voters identify as pro-abortion rights than as Democrats, making abortion an important issue for picking up swing voters

Washington, D.C. – Today, MoveOn Political Action released new polling from battleground states showing that the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade is very unpopular and gives Democrats an opportunity with key voters.

The survey was fielded before the U.S. Supreme Court released its decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, making it more likely the data has shifted in the aftermath to further increase the urgency with which voters view abortion rights and their willingness to engage on the issue.

“If we want to restore abortion rights and prevent Republicans from passing a national abortion ban, we need to fight to hold the House and add two Democratic senators who will prioritize abortion rights over the filibuster,” said MoveOn Political Action Executive Director Rahna Epting. “Democrats speaking out for abortion rights doesn’t motivate only base voters—it’s an extremely important issue for swing voters, as well.”

“The electorate in several battlegrounds—like Pennsylvania and Wisconsin—are far more supportive of abortion than conventional political wisdom thinks they are,” said Lake Research Partners President Celinda Lake. “More voters in these states identify as pro-abortion rights than as Democrats, making abortion a key issue for picking up support from swing voters.” 

Other findings include: 

  • The Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade runs counter to public sentiment in the battleground states of Arizona, Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.
  • Democrats and pro-abortion rights voters are very motivated to turn out in November in support of candidates who will protect people’s right to an abortion. Additionally, Democrats and pro-abortion rights voters are much more energized to vote in response to the decision to overturn Roe and a possible abortion ban in their state than are Republicans or voters who oppose abortion in all or most circumstances. 
  • While it is true that there are many issues competing for voters’ attention at this time, not the least of which are gas prices and inflation, polling shows that voters are ready to hold lawmakers accountable in November for ensuring or restricting access to abortion.

MoveOn commissioned Lake Research Partners to design and administer an online survey of 300 likely 2022 voters in each of four battleground states—Arizona, Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin—as well as 200 Democratic surge voters across the four states. The survey fielded June 6-14, 2022. The margin of error for each state is +/-5.7%.

WGN reported moments ago:

The gunman accused of fatally shooting seven and wounding over 30 people at a Highland Park Fourth of July parade wore a disguise and blended into the crowd he fired upon before he fled the scene and was eventually caught by police.

At a news conference Tuesday morning, Christopher Covelli, Lake County Major Crime Task Force spokesman, said 21-year-old Robert “Bobby” Crimo III legally purchased the weapon used in the mass shooting. Crimo was arrested about eight hours after police said he opened fire during the holiday event. A second gun was found in his car following his arrest.

The downtown parade was disrupted around 10:10 a.m. after shots were fired near Central Avenue and 2nd Street.

According to WGN News anchor the channel had obtained a picture of the killer in drag.
