Was Stacey Abrams really the best the Dems could do?

| February 9, 2019


Stacey Abrams, the Democratic candidate who narrowly lost the race for Georgia governor in 2018, delivered the Democrats’ rebuttal to President Trump’s State of the Union address. She’s a progressive black woman who was defeated by President Trump’s endorsed candidate, Brian Kemp.

The rebuttal to the SOTU address is normally delivered by a Congress member or sitting governor, making Abrams an odd choice.

Our very own Poetrooper has some thoughts on the issue, and has been kind enough to send them to me for further dissemination.

The Democrat leadership’s politically correct, virtue-signaling selection of failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams to be their mouthpiece to rebut President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address Tuesday night seemed odd to me, so I decided to dig a little. What I’ve found has me wondering even more why they would pick such a person to be the face of the Democratic Party in a national broadcast with a huge audience. Increasingly, it seems that the Dems have a fondness for phonies and failures, making it seem as if the Democrat leadership is unaware of that old wisdom, “Put your best foot forward.” In this case, it appears that the particular foot they picked to boot Trump’s butt has a case of political toenail fungus.

After but a preliminary search, I was wondering why on Earth the Georgia Democratic Party powers that be had selected a former tax attorney, who doesn’t pay her taxes timely, to be the chief executive officer of the state, expected by voters to govern responsibly. Why would they advance a person to head their state, whose major obligation to the citizenry is managing the financial affairs of their state, who obviously cannot responsibly manage her own financial affairs? According to articles out there on the web, candidate Abrams owed some serious money to the IRS, more than $50,000. She had student loan debt in excess of $90,000. And what’s even more damning was her personal credit card debt, pushing $80,000. It’s doubtful that Ms. Abrams has completely balanced her books since that was reported less than a year ago, although, as a favored Democratic Party figure, the possibility can’t be dismissed.

So Abrams appears to have issues when it comes to managing her personal finances, and Georgia Democrat fat cats wanted her to head their ticket, to entrust her with the financial well-being of their state — with a budget approaching $50 billion. Did they seriously want voters to believe they could not find, in the entire state of Georgia, a better qualified black female who could check off their requisite identity politics boxes, one, perhaps, who pays her taxes and her credit card bills? Worse is that even though Georgia voters rejected this irresponsible woman and elected a man with a business background to manage their state finances, national Democratic Party leaders still saw fit to select a tax-evader as the face of the party to deliver the SOTU rebuttal, which she did rather poorly — and poorly is being charitable.

This politically correct farce illustrates the madness that permeates the Democratic Party, wherein qualifications to manage the affairs of our states and our nation take a dismissive back seat to race, sex, and sexual preferences when it comes to candidate selection. For an even better demonstration of this leftist irrationality, one needs only to view the video of that sullen, surly, white-clad gaggle of Democrat women in the House chamber for Trump’s address and observe their immature behavior. You’d be hard pressed to find any examples of thoughtful, responsible leadership in that crowd of churlish girls. Yep, I said “girls,” because that is exactly the description their adolescent comportment begs for. With their spoiled, snotty, self-serving behavior, they clearly demonstrated to America what the Democratic Party has become: a refuge for know-nothing know-it-alls, who, with the absolute certainty of adolescents, think they can do a better job of managing family affairs than the grown-ups. And these are the women to whom the Democrats expect the voters to entrust the future of this nation?

If the Democrat leadership believes that Stacey Abrams represents the very best of this lame-brained bunch of petulant, pussy-hatted politicos, wouldn’t you just love to see the financial statements on the rest of these new Democrat “leaders” who will control the trillion-dollar budgets and deficit spending of your nation?

Sleep on that thought, America…

Thanks, Poe. Keep ’em coming, Bro.

    How ironic that so many of the people who want to raise our taxes don’t care to pay their own.

    And I could parallel-park my F-150 in that gap in her front teeth! Evidently none of that money went to an orthodontist.

  2. Ex-PH2 says:

    Pow! right in the kisser! Keep it up, Poe.

    Is there a failure on my part to understand why the Democrats seem to have a knack for picking the worst possible candidates for an important job like running a state’s business, or representing people from a particular state in WDC?

    • rgr769 says:

      How about that clown, Northam? He came across in that presser as a clueless dolt.

    • streetsweeper says:

      Rumor has it, it would have been historic because she would have been the first black woman to govern Georgia. Nothing else. She is gearing up to campaign
      for US Senate seat held by David Perdue.

  3. Jay says:

    Careful logic, deep facts, and well thought out presentation.

    Buuuuuuut…..shes black. Youre a racist Poe, sorry.

  4. Trapper Frank says:

    I live in Georgia and can say we dodged a bullet. Please, don’t California my beloved Georgia. She is an out and out Socialist that is down with illegal aliens and 16 year olds voting. Every time I saw her size 26 ass on tv last year, I couldn’t help but be reminded of the children’s game Hungry Hungry Hippos.

  5. 5th/77th FA says:

    Bam Bam bring on the damn damn Poe. You da man man.

    Saw a brief blurb on something the other day that talked about Abrams and the $3.5 mil she got from Soros via Shelia and Maxie Pad.

    Scariest part of this past election is she came within the proverbial hair of taking (read stealing) that thing. We in GA dodged a very big bullet there. Many local news outlets were reporting the same things that were happening in FL, ie, the multitudes of ballot boxes with nothing but dem votes in them. A lot of that never made the national news. As I have posted before, the “free shit army” and the left wing socialists are over running the metro areas and severely diluting the votes of the working middle class.

    When the dems run her for the North GA Senate Seat, they have a very good chance of winning that one, simply because of the #s. Massive groups of “minorities” all thru N GA, between the carpet mills and massive chicken house to the overwhelming minority presence in Atlanta and Augusta. If she doesn’t manage to win that seat, she ill run for guvanator again. They know how many votes they need to win now.

    • AW1Ed says:

      If things in GA are as you say- and I see no reason to believe otherwise- GA just got dropped from my short list of places to go when I really retire.

      • 5th/77th FA says:

        Hoping I’m either wrong, or there are enough people up there to stave this off. I have a tendency to look at a worst case scenario, and then hope for the best. We have the same problem as other areas. People like yourself are thinking somewhere else because of the Stacey Abrams and Ol’Cotexes of the world. As we have stated here on many of an occasions; Liberalism is a disease that after infecting one area, they move to the next. Look at all the places that just a few years ago were not bastions of stupidity and now are cesspools of liberalism.

        The “free shit army” just like the rat/mouse never understands why the cheese is free. Welcome South Brother. Like the Marines, we’re always looking for a few more good ones.

      • Torinojon says:

        I would drop it from your short list on account of income taxes alone. If you’re picking place to retire, TN is a good option.

        Also, not only is the Atlanta/Augusta area very blue, so is the Savannah area. We have a huge art college here that brings in lots of hygiene-challenged folks that only vote one way.

        On the flip side, it doesn’t get cold here, we have sweet tea, and the gun laws are very friendly. Also the state does homestead exemptions so you can lock in your property tax rate.

        • AW1Ed says:

          Thanks, Tennessee is already on the list, for a lot of the reasons you mentioned.

        • USAFRetired says:

          Georgia doesn’t tax social security. Additionally at age 65 the first 65K of retirement income is not taxed. It begins a phase in at age 62.

          In a year or two I’ll know what the age 62 amount is. But by age 65 I’m pretty confident all my military retirement will be state tax free.

    • USAFRetired says:

      I have to disagree somewhat. There isn’t a North Georgia Senate seat. Its a statewide office.

      Senator Perdue the incumbent is from middle Georgia, having been born in Macon and grown up in Warner Robins. He currently lives on the Georgia coast. He succeeded Saxby Chambliss in 2915 and Chambliss was from even farther south in the State. He beat Sam Nunn’s daughter in the 2014 election.

      Like a lot of States the Atlanta Metro area is a Democratic stronghold. But its a big state.

      IMO the reason the last election was close is because Kemp was not a great candidate. I did not vote for him in the primary. Either Clay Tippins or Hunter Hill were better choices.

      Her fiscal irresponsibility continues to turnoff the electorate

      • 5th/77th FA says:

        Roger that USAFRetired. Maybe need to clean up by saying voters in North GA., both at large. I supported Hunter Hill myself in the primary and would have picked any of the other candidates over Kemp, primarily because he, too, is a professional politician. I used Purdue as the example since he is the next one up for re-election. If she doesn’t win that one, she will be back for either Issackson’s Senate seat or another shot at the guvantors seat. They don’t have to win the ballot box, they know how to steal the ballot box. I would venture to say that at least 20% + of her votes were either bought or fraudulent in some way.

        “Her fiscal irresponsibility continues to turn off the electorate.” The people that voted for her last time will vote for her again, fiscal responsibility be damned. Her voters have no fiscal responsibility, and again, you add in the coastal region libs, the minorities in Columbus/Albany, and the fact that she will have the gig $ backing her. This is a clear and present danger to, not only Georgia, but to the Nation.

        Be Aware…Be Very Aware! VOTE

        • USAFRetired says:

          I voted for the SEAL Clay Tippins. Principally, because he’d been military and a businessman and not some politician.

  6. Mason says:

    She’s also gone whole hog (pun intended) for the “voter suppression” myth as to why she lost.

    • UpNorth says:

      It’s always “voter suppression” when the preferred demographic is only allowed to vote once, and the car trunks full of dem only votes are not counted.

  7. Tallywhagger says:

    I wonder how much it cost to feed her, per day. Just imagine running into her when she is PMSing and hungry.

  8. Madconductor says:

    Not sure the money thing disqualifies her – she’s a dumocrat and as I recall, obozo filled some of his cabinet positions with people who had way more debt than Abrams. Yes, it disqualifies her to us but to dumocrats it’s a non-issue. The platform is more important – open borders, clearing DACA, abortions, windmills, minimum wage, and other such nonsense. Abrams fits right in and she almost pulled one off because of her gender and her color, not her common sense (no longer a requirement). The scariest thing we have to listen to today is people like Abrams and AOC yakking endlessly about socialism and what a great change it would be. And the dumocrat party thinks it’s a good thing. The whole damn party. Choosing Abrams for such a high profile speech is representative of how far left the dumocrats have moved. They picked a solid loser to rebut a solid winner. Can anyone in their party think anymore?

  9. Outcast says:

    I recognize her now, wasn’t she the lead roll on Mama’s house ?

  10. Club Manager, USA ret. says:

    The Dumbocrats gave Abrams the face time to tout her for a senate run. You would think someone would have suggested she avoid the buffet every so often and get her mouth fixed – although that can be a positive recognition trademark. And, WTF does “progressive Black woman” mean anyway? Is that the new buzz word for socialist or just a woman who wants to be on top every so often?

    • AW1Ed says:

      “progressive Black woman”

      I pulled the term whole cloth from an article. I think it’s pretty self explanatory.

  11. Former 13D says:

    Ideal spokesperson for the Democratic Party would be a minority lesbian quadriplegic identifying as a queer socialist man with a speech impediment. Or something like that.

  12. MCPO NYC USN Ret. says:

    To answer your question:

    Yes, and I am glad they picked her!

  13. A Proud Infidel®™️ says:

    I was barely able to believe the amount of 24K stupidity coming from her in that speech. First was her babble about her Father coming home from work in a Shipyard , if they owned a car then why did he have to hitchhike to and from work? Her drivel about Truckers “having to buy their own trucks…” when just a tiny bit of research would have told her about Owner Operators, most of whom make a good honest living hauling freight. All I saw was pure DNC propaganda and I wonder if she’d go into a steady stream of one “uuhhhhmm” after another as soon as her TelePrompTer quit working like a former POTUS we know of?

    • streetsweeper says:

      Hadn’t thought much of that shipyard statement until remembering there’s a few of them around Pascagoula. If daddy was hoofing it 35 miles to work then they were living way north of town.

  14. Marc says:

    I am so tired of having to watch my mouth in public, I don’t care anymore, I speak my thoughts out loud now, hoping to offend some left leaning turd

  15. Jeffery Monroe says:

    She came down to the Columbus ,Ga Phenix City Ft Benning Area, but didn’t bother going to the base citing some ignorant were responsible for the world problems. I say elect her for President of Golden Corral -LOL

  16. rgr769 says:

    The lady (and I use the term loosely) is a professional racial grievance monger. Anyone who believes anything she says is true is delusional. But Progs gotta prog; it is what they do.

  17. 3/10/MED/b says:

    Keep bringing the idiots.
    They will do the work all by themselves.

  18. Jarhead says:

    And so we learn another Polk Salad Stacey who makes the alligators look tame was in fact a straight razor totin’ size 29″ neck character direct from the ghetto.
    Proof that some sphincters remain open more often than not because the “owner” is thoroughly full of shit…as in this case. The entitlement mentality is truly a wicked karma. What a wonderful choice to deliver the reassal speech. A better choice might have been a GED failure with dyslexia.

    BTW, great picture of her. Shows what Hitler might have looked like had he been a chocolate drag queen.

    • AW1Ed says:

      It’s the little things that make the board shine. Thanks! If you knew how many pics of SA I had to wade through to choose the ‘right’ one, I’ll probably have nightmares of her for a week.

  19. Sparks says:

    Stacey Abrams…oh yes, another Democrat genius on the rise. You could sharpen a pencil in her tooth gap.
