    We called it (Jan. 2019): Tulsi Gabbard at debates will be “a disrupter thrown like a hand grenade into the mix”

    Gabbard just took down Kamala Harris over a false career narrative, will she next confront Elizabeth Warren?

    We’re on a roll.

    Eyes and talk are turning to Michelle Obama as the reality of the weak Democrat presidential field sinks in. We’ve been predicting that for almost two years. Whether she runs or not, the yearning for Michelle as a savior figure is real.

    And in the second CNN debate, Tulsi Gabbard sliced and diced Kamala Harris’ prosecutorial career.

    Post-debate, Tulsi is doing a victory dance on Kamala’s political head:

    Tulsi’s performance came as a shock to everyone. Everyone, that is, except for Legal Insurrection readers, because I saw this coming the moment Tulsi declared for the presidency.

    On January 11, 2019, when most pundits were writing her off as at best a crackpot, or at worst an Assad-apologist, I wrote, Dem Rep. Tulsi Gabbard is running for president, and that’s important (really, it is):

    What did I see that others didn’t? As the sub-headline to the post said: “Bring on the crowded debate stage, with a disrupter thrown like a hand grenade into the mix.”

    While her politics are very different than ours, she has a spirit of disruption that also guides us.

    Gabbard running is important.

    Not because she’s going to win.

    But because she is yet another Democrat throwing her hat into the ring. Within months we could have dozens of Democrats running.

    The debates, which start in June, have the potential to be a three-ring circus, making the large 2016 Republican field seem quaint by comparison.

    If Democrats prevent lesser-known candidates from participating in the debates, it will harken back to Hillary’s friends at the DNC rigging the primaries against Bernie. If all Democrats participate, it’s going to be mayhem on stage, and will take away from top tier candidates.

    Add Gabbard to the mix, and it will be great theater. She’s not afraid to go against liberal orthodoxy — not always in good ways — and to attack other Democrats.

    So Gabbard getting into the race is important because she will be a disrupter on a stage filled with Democrats before a national TV audience.

    And so it came to be.

    If Tulsi makes it to Round 3, which seems likely, she may be the only one on stage unafraid to take on Warren head on. And Tulsi has the smarts to articulate, as she did with Harris, why Warren’s Native American deception matters and how Warren’s history of lining her pockets representing large corporations damages Warren’s political narrative.

    I am voting for Trump, but having witnessed the contempt Harris has had for clergy abuse victims and her defending prosecutorial misconduct, I want her on the next debate stage. I just donated $5. She got 20,000 new donors yesterday:

    BTW, Trump made some very interesting comments yesterday in Ohio. Again bashing the leaders of crime-ridden and corrupt US cities with large black populations, he built on his 2016 message asking blacks “What do you have to lose voting for me? You are no better off having voted for Dems than you were 50 years ago?”. That is now being asked again with the warning that the Dems are working to replace them as a priority with millions of illegals. Illegals are a major headache for black (and latino) voters who are asking their leaders (including their BLACK leaders) where the money is going? Baltimore was granted $15B in federal money yet today is worse off than ever. While the politicians squandered the money elsewhere, the new money is being targeted to welfare for illegals!

    Trump is going to stun the Dems by stripping away a substantial percentage of black and latino voters. Add the union vote they are pissing off by replacing their cadillac health benefits with Medicare for All, you have to wonder whether the Dems are doing any math at all. Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin, Minnesota… Where exactly is their message winning other than Hollywood, DC and Manhattan?

    The Democrats have suckered the their loon bird base to send in their money and now taking a hard right to the center to win. Harris’ sole purpose in this campaign was to be loud and looney straw woman of color that the pre-selected Gabbard, dressed in white, could ride in to slay.

    Warning – she’s a loyal prog. and tool of the globalists. A female Obama. Trump better make people aware of it and fast. He’s wasted so much time. He should have seen this coming a mile away.

    The democrats are nothing if not predictable.

    Yes, she comes from a very safe state for the Democrats, but:
    – hot as heck – most every guy will look at her twice just to look
    – Biden needs a woman on his ticket to overcome his pervert vibe
    – good debater, good on her feet
    – military, war vet.

    After her performance taking down Harris, my bet right now is Biden ends up with her as his running mate. Despite her coming from HI. They fit well together, and she can be his attack dog. Do a better job than any of the other women running.

    I think that the best alternative would be a woman from the rust belt. But I don’t see one rising from there. That is, I think, where the battle is going to be waged, with Biden using his folksy charm to try to reclaim the Blue Wall states Crooked Hillary lost in 2016. And realistically, he is the only Dem candidate with a decent chance at pulling it off. Gabbard can help there with her military experience and good looks. There are other routes to winning, but all appear much harder to execute. Expect a lot more Trump campaign rallies in those states over the next year.
