An Editorial Opinion
I am an independent voter who is registered to vote in California.
Tonight, Donald Trump became the presumptive Republican nominee for President. He is the undisputed "King" of the GOP Party.
Joe Biden needs to bow out of the race, ASAP. Voters are not buying whatever Biden is selling. Biden is old, tired, frail, and senile. He reminds me of expired milk.
Anybody else in Biden’s physical and mental condition would be living in nursing home or an assisted living facility by now.
What is worse, Vice-President Kamala Harris is more unpopular than Biden. She is as "light and fluffy" as a Pillsbury doughboy biscuit.
Democrats must dump Biden and Harris now and replace them with a presidential ticket that is electable.
A Viable Alternative to Joe Biden and Kamala Harris
I firmly believe that West Virginia U.S. Senator Joe Manchin offers Democrats the best chance to stop Donald Trump from winning the 2024 presidential election in November.
Independent voters would support Joe Manchin as the head of the Democratic Party presidential ticket. Manchin needs to pick his own running mate, and it cannot be Kamala Harris.
California Gov. Gavin Newson is not a viable national candidate for the presidency. Californians were ready to remove Newsome from office a couple of years ago. Somehow, Newsome survived the recall election.
I am willing to support Joe Manchin as a presidential candidate. I am also willing to direct about $75 million in donations from my nationwide network of political friends and allies to Joe Manchin's campaign, should he run for the presidency.
We are also ready, willing, and able to deliver up to 2 million newly registered independent voters in six swing states to Joe Manchin.
Personally, I do not agree with many of Joe Manchin’s public policy positions on domestic issues, but at least Manchin has proven that he can work across the aisle to get things done.
Under no circumstances will I “crash and burn” with Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.
I would not trust Biden or Harris to lead me to the restroom at a Love’s Travel Stop along a busy Interstate highway.
I have no personal animosity toward Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. This is strictly political business.
