Marc Platt's Politics: I'm a Lefty
by Marc Platt
This is not gloating or "I told you so," BUT.....
I wrote a bunch of blogs and posts during the election in 2016 explaining what Steve Bannon has now said in Michael Wolff's book about Trump's motives for running for US President.
I was crucified by many friends, family and people on both ends of the political spectrum. The truth is now slowly, but surely surfacing and is what I thought it was at the time.
I am not smarter than anyone else. I think I use common sense and try to stick to the facts. In early 2015 (I wrote in one piece) Trump met with a PR person who told him he could get to 12% in the GOP polls and improve his brand. He jumped on that and now we are here....
He had a lot of help and a lot of it was not kosher. Everything has stopped functioning properly (strictly partisan) in Washington, except figuring out how we got here. We are here and Robert Mueller is only the first part of the equation. When the congress turns over in November and the Democrats are hauling everyone into what will surely look like the Watergate hearings, the shit will really hit the fan. Will Trump find a way out before that happens?
I repeat...DONALD J. TRUMP NEVER EXPECTED TO WIN. HE DID NOT
WANT TO WIN...We are screwed until he is removed.
That is all.....except...You can go back into my political blogs all the way back to the beginning and read for yourself if you have any interest....

I know Michelle Obama has expressed no interest in ever running for President or any elected office, but that fact doesn't mean that our country doesn't need her to reconsider that view.
I will try to simply state some facts that might help unpack a strong case to have Mrs. Obama reconsider and run in 2020.
We currently have a sitting U.S. President who was "elected" under strange circumstances (Russia Investigation) who had exactly ZERO U.S. Government experience. Our current government is being controlled by one party and is having a hard time getting anything passed through congress.
Our current POTUS defeated a former First Lady who DID have decades of experience in Washington DC.
So here we are 3 years out from the next presidential election with no credible Democratic message or candidate. Before your hair catches on fire and you start screaming how great our current Democratically-elected members of congress are so much better than the GOP members, I will point out that the current president did not come from Congress or s state house.
Michelle Obama knows her way around the Beltway. She was married to a (now popular) ex-president. Her kids are grown up and pretty much out of the house (soon). She HAS a message "When They Go Low...We Go High." That is a positive message that really resonated in every speech she gave. She CAN give a speech. She CAN move a crowd. She DOES care what happens to all Americans. People seem to love her.
The argument gets stronger by the fact that we now have a president who has unraveled a lot of Barack Obama's achievements and she can reinstate most of those policies in what will inevitably be a Democratically-controlled congress in January, 2021.
Ask yourself one big question.
Do you believe Michelle Obama and the United States can actually get more done than the current crop of White House dwellers?
Yes she can.
"Yes We Can"
