Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer Endorses Joe Biden – The Big Picture Challenge for Bernie…

Michigan and the subsequent 125 Democrat delegates is a critical state for the presidential primary contest between Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders.   Michigan (125 delegates), Idaho (20), Mississippi (36), Missouri (68), North Dakota (14), and Washington State (89) all vote next Tuesday March 10th.

Former Vice-President Joe Biden, an advocate for outsourcing U.S. jobs via corrupt trade deals, is hoping to leverage his phony pro-union bona-fides & crush Bernie Sanders in Michigan.

However, Bernie has a strong ground team in Michigan, understands the importance in delegate accumulation, and also knows it is critical to defeat the ‘unelectable‘ narrative the DNC Club has deployed against him.

Michigan is also critical for Bernie because his positions on Cuba have damaged his hopes in Florida (219 delegates) voting on March 17th.

If Bernie is going to mount a progressive charge against the power of the DNC apparatus he needs a strong outcome from working class voters in Michigan, Illinois (155) and Ohio (136 delegates).  The primary contests in Illinois and Ohio are held on March 17th along with Florida.

Into this critical moment comes Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer who is: (a) part of the professional party apparatus; and (b) endorsing the party candidate, Joe Biden.

MICHIGAN – Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) on Thursday endorsed Joe Biden for president, a significant boost for the former vice president ahead of next week’s primary in the Wolverine State.

Whitmer, whose state’s primary will allocate 125 pledged delegates, cast Biden as an advocate for working families, citing his work on health care, bailing out the auto industry and more during his time in the Obama administration.

“Working families in Michigan need a president who will show up and fight for them, and Joe Biden has proven time and again that he has our backs,” she said in a statement. “Michiganders have grit. We’re tough. We know what it’s like to be overlooked and counted out. And we know that when you get knocked down, you pick yourself up and get back to work. Joe Biden has been right there with us in the tough fights.” (read more)

Joe Biden and Gretchen Whitmer

In many ways the 2020 Democrat primary is even more difficult for Bernie because the potential for his success is/was higher.  In 2016 the Club apparatus knew Bernie Sanders was positioned as a primary candidate in name only.  The Club had already structured a pre-determined outcome; a road-map specifically designed for Hillary Clinton.

In 2016 DNC Club leadership didn’t initially pay too much attention to Bernie early in the primary because they never gave him a chance.  It was only after the primary race was well underway; and seeing an actual fire under the grassroots support he carried; that the Club realized Sanders was factually a threat.  Once the machine moved internally to eliminate Bernie as a possibility…. the rest -as they say- became history.

This year the Club obviously took Bernie very seriously and pre-positioned a multitude of defensive systems, all very well funded, to diminish him.

Team Bernie needs a win or split decision in Michigan (125 delegates) and Washington State (89 delegates)… because Idaho (20), North Dakota (14), Missouri (68), and Mississippi (36), are far less favorable.

The importance of Michigan on March 10th, and the alignment of the professionally-black caucus behind Biden, appears to be why Bernie is ceding Mississippi in the south and cancelling trips.

(Via Bloomberg) Bernie Sanders canceled a campaign trip to Mississippi scheduled for Friday and will instead campaign in Michigan, an aide said Thursday. The move means that Sanders is effectively ceding votes in the South to Joe Biden.

Sanders was supposed to campaign on Friday with Jackson, Mississippi Mayor Chokwe Lumumba, who endorsed the Vermont senator.

But, after losing 10 of 14 states on Super Tuesday, Sanders is redirecting his focus to Michigan, which holds its primary contest on Tuesday. Biden had particularly strong performances across the South on Tuesday, lifted by overwhelming support from black voters, and is expected to easily win Mississippi on Tuesday.

Sanders won a surprise victory in the Michigan primary in 2016, and the state will be critical to his ability to catch up to Biden, who overtook him in delegates after Super Tuesday.(read more)

This landscape is why the duplicity of Elizabeth Warren is particularly painful for the loyal Bernie Sanders supporters.  It would be immensely valuable for Elizabeth Warren to join with Sanders and mount a united progressive charge into the state of Michigan.

With both Sanders and Warren assembling their coalitions in Michigan a win would be much more likely.  However, the Club knows exactly this point…. And that is exactly why Liawatha is following Club directions and not endorsing Bernie.

The positive for Sanders is the DNC rule-changes that make every state proportional in delegate distribution.  If Sanders can stay a close second in states he does not win and  simultaneously expand large margins in the states he does win, then he has a viable path against the machine.   However, this approach requires BIG wins in BIG delegate-rich states.

Essentially that’s Bernie’s delegate road-map to the convention:

(1) stay a close second place in the smaller states that he loses; and

(2) have big wins in the big states where he has larger networks.

With that in mind the Sanders campaign likely regrets some of the recent remarks about Cuba that made Miami-Dade voters twitchy.  It will be interesting to watch what Team Bernie does in Florida; Bernie cannot concede 219 delegates and still hope to win the nomination, even with optimism toward Ohio (136) and Illinois (155).

March 10th and March 17th are critical dates for Bernie Sanders….

      And it was still close. With all of that. She is very unlikeable and bitches while doing zero. A lot of people here don’t even remember her name. That is why her endorsement I think does effect Bernie but not as much as one might think.
      If Bernie is smart he runs non stop ads showcasing Joe’s affinity to rip auto jobs of Michigan, straight into China and Mexico. With that dumb smirk on his face. Then show a clip where Bernie fought NAFTA and fights for jobs. Over and over. That is THE hot button for everyone here regardless of party affiliation. Single subject. Joe selling out Michigan.

      Um, voter fraud?
      We had candidates winning on election night, by morning they lost after the Detroit numbers came in.
      2016 Stein recount: ballot boxes w/350 votes had maybe 50 in them…

      That, along with Ronna Romney McDaniel and Ron Weiser who crammed Bill Schuette down our throats. BS was a horrible candidate.

      Patrick Colbeck was an awesome candidate but the establishment went all out against him. They made sure the donors knew not to donate to him (or else), and the media conveniently “forgot” to mention him as a candidate in almost every article that covered the primary field.

      IMO, Ronna needs to go, like yesterday…

      Ron Weiser supposedly raised 40 million and we had candidates BEGGING for $$ for ads.We lost EVERYTHING!! Gov, AG, SOS, State School Board and 3 Ballot Proposals!!

      The 3 ballot proposals, “Promote the Vote” (same day voter registration), “Voters not Politicians” (gerrymandering by an unelected group of beaurocrats @40k/yr, appointed by Whitmer) and pot has MI on it was toward being the next liberal heaven. UGH!!

        52 years later, they are all the same kind of agitators but wrapped into the Bernie Bro/Occu-tard, PantyFa movement, and the Democratic Socialists of America.

          Will, Good point, thinking, but here’s why I think Milwaukee will sleep thru it.

          I worked at that Convention at 18 as a local flunkie for a man named Joseph Tydings from MD who died last year, US Senator. He became my sponsor on the Hill the ensuing 4 college years, working the doors of the Floor, an employee of the Sgt at Arms office.

          Inside the ’68 Convention got wild a few times as it has the right. Outside and around town was alot more than that many will remember and for a week before. The National Mobilization Committee to End the War and the Youth International Party (Yippy namesake) had already begun planning months earlier to have a youth festival in Chicago to coincide with the Democratic National Convention. Students for a Democratic Society SDS were a big presence. 50,000-70,000 (est) Anti-War protestors with a fervent anti-war edge came to Chicago, most sleeping outside. RFK’s assasination in June still fresh.
          I’d never seen my town like that, IL Nat’l Guard soldiers, tanks, caravans everywhere from downtown to the Convention 4 miles away, and never since. Serious riots were nightly, serious injuries sustained mostly by you can guess, but both sides. Dan Rather got flattened, his credentials tossed. Alot of property damage.
          Inside, since President Johnson had dropped out after NH in Feb, alot of big names were in the hunt as to who could get us out of Nam quicker, better, etc. Humphrey/Muskie won the Nomination, NixonAgnew beat them, he got us out as quick as he could, I guess is fair. But all the Dem big boys were in the hunt at that Convention: McCarthy, Muskie, Kennedy, McGovern, Julian Bond, even Geo Wallace was in play, barely. A little dimmer Dem line-up for 2020.

          The 2020 Dems are fighting over who is (now past tense, it’s Biden) better at taking out Trump. The fever pitch of a Call to War, to Stop the War like ’68, isn’t going to be here anyway, the emotional righteousness isn’t present.

          Milwaukee many might think can use a little spark, ain’t gonna happen.

    Bernie is done. His comments about the Castro regime likely cost him the race. Ignorant people will fall for the idea of a socialist economic system, but even many of those have a problem with him defending dictators and their regimes. The last debate was the turning point for his campaign. The establishment, smelling blood in the water chose that moment to capitalize and coalesce around a candidate. I don’t think they went into the campaign season thinking it was going to be Biden. I still think it was supposed to be “Pete” or “Warren”, but none of them gained traction, so Biden became the default candidate and hence where we are today. Bernie doesn’t have any fight left in him. He’ll give speeches taking about his “revolution”, but for all intents and purposes, he’s done. He’ll lose both NY and Fl by 35+%.

        I couldn’t believe how many seniors told me they were NOT voting in 2018 because they were MOVING due to the high cost of auto insurance and the pension tax.

    I would not underestimate the devotion of Bernie’s brigade. There are lots of big schools in Michigan and his snowflakes will be at blizzard strength for what is being depicted as Bernie’s last stand. Something also tells me that the ticking time bomb of Burisma/Ukraine corruption is about to start detonating, starting with a few hand grenades.

    So, if either Biden or Sanders’ health fails post-convention and they drop out, is their VP pick automatically elevated to the top of the ticket?

    Are there officials rules for that scenario?

    Forget Bernie and the Dem sideshow. Time to laser focus on destroying everything pertaining to Biden. His past, present and intended future.

    There is a goldmine of material, but it has to be mined, shaped, presented shrewdly in a timely way.

    Think general public. No time now for giving the unaware reason to dismiss criticism as a right wing conspiracy. That will tune out perceptions over coming months. And the criticism of his mental state and behavior is easy, but also will be tuned out.

    He has to be cut down incrementally. Tweak his emotions in an underscored way. Rip into his policies on facts. Give him enough rope to build his own noose. He surely will.

    • “Give him enough rope to build his own noose.” My impression of galloping, high-fiving Joe after winning recently hasn’t changed from “February Joe”. All we have to imagine is old Joe running into a tiny bump in the road. How many honest tough questions thrown at him by reporters or anyone can he take. None. He explodes at young Fox Doocey, he finger stabs at peoples chests, he pops a gasket calling a young lady “dog faced pony soldier”. He cannot spar with any sharp adult. He goes to pieces mumbling, cussing and most likely soiling his ‘depends’. And then comes a giant who can spar with any leader in the world, Donald Trump into the ring of debate. Good luck, Joe!

      Pretty confident that VSGPDJT has this. I’d still like to see a whole lot of Burnie Bots turn out to wreak havoc on the convention and weeken Quid Pro Joe Bidet as much as possible, but I agree, the real campaign focus needs to be on developing irrefutable evidence and strategies to get it out and in front of voters repeatedly and in an escalating fashion before the election. Have to be careful not to move too soon on this stuff, though, since MSM will do everything possible to cover for QPJB.

    Don’t you think that Bernie Sanders gave the interview and made the Cuba comments to deliberately sabotage his own campaign. Nobody is that stupid or arrogant to praise Fidel Castro on the eve of a major make or break primary? Bernie likes to be a candidate for President but not actually being the President!

      Biden has the same problem and will occasionally say crazy stuff. It’s just harder to tell with Biden because he’s so freaking stupid.

    I propose a new “common sense” comparison test for Presidential candidates”

    Biden, Bernie or President Trump? (choose one)

    If you were faced with selecting an advisor or personal representative for some of life’s most crucial decisions, who would you choose?

    – If you were being prosecuted for a crime who would you want to be your defense attorney?
    – If you had to leave your life savings in a trust for your children/grandchildren, who would you choose as the Trustee?
    -Who would you choose to be your Medical Care representive if you were incapacitated?
    -If you were making an investment, who would you want to be your financial analyst and advisor?
    -If you were replacing your home’s HVAC system or roof, who would you call for advice?

    If you were thinking of getting married, having children, buying a home, fighting an illness, buying a car, choosing a career… you want someone honest, coherent, AND competent.

    Not just the old “who can you trust”; more like, who can you trust to make a wise decision…

      President Trump’s impeachment defense team.

      As they say, a prosecutor can indict a ham sandwich. Those amazing defense lawyers would get the ham sandwich acquitted and the prosecutor disbarred.

    Welp, I just turned in my Michigan primary absentee ballot, voting for Sanders. My wife isn’t as devious as me, she voted for Trump.

    In 2016, the Club tried to sneak Hillary a primary win in Michigan, because the more she campaigned in OH, MI, WI, MN, PA and these other Midwest states, the worse her numbers got. Sanders ended up beating her, despite her paid polls saying she was a lock. I’d say it’s similar with BIden this year, so he’s gotta hope he can lay low and manipulate matters and take it, because when he’s exposed as a Uniparty shill and corporatist, Michigan will go against him.

    Biden is not without problems too. Not least of which is a base that clearly isn’t interested in another non-Marxist, establishment, candidate. He is also a walking gaffe-factory of lunacy, and his age is showing much more than Sanders’ (or Trump). I’m sure the media will wrap him in a blanket to try and hide his issues, but as we saw with Clinton, the media couldn’t cover up her passing out and being dragged into black SUVs. It’s a long campaign involving an octogenarian who has already had a heart attack during the campaign vs. an octogenarian who has trouble remembering who and where he is.

    The math and the map favors Biden. The question is what will the D base do? Will they suck it up and run another establishment tool, or will they do what MAGA voters did and reject the establishment?

    These are people who WANT the government telling them how to live every aspect of their lives. So we cannot assume they’ll ditch Biden. Ultimately, what Warren does is irrelevant. Her Marxist supporters will drift over to Sanders. Her cat lady and cuckold supporters will drift to Biden.

    In a hint of where Sanders’ thinks this is going, he said today that he would concede to Biden if Biden won “a plurality” of delegates not a simple majority. So Sanders is already sowing seeds for his leveraged buyout.

  32. We ended up with the moron for a few reasons, but the 3 biggest were
    1. Our previous republican governor got blamed for Flint Water.
    2. Our LT Gov ran as the republican, and he has the personality of a moldy sponge.
    3. This moron we have now promised to FIX THE DAMN ROADS for no new taxes. Our roads are horrible, our bridges are collapsing. She lied, of course. People just wanted to believe she would do it. The republican didn’t campaign on anything,so they gave her a shot
    Good news is that the bloom is off the rose for her. She couldn’t do the roads, so she tried to force a tax increase. When that failed, she cut funding to schools, and to special needs people. Then she went around the legislature to get 3.5 BILLION in bonds. She is not loved here, and I am in Macomb county, the home of Reagan and Trump democrats, where she has no fan base. So, she can say Biden, but the state will go to Bernie. Trump will get it in November, trust me.

    How fitting, Bernie’s idiocy as to Castro and his big mouth have basically lost him the nomination. Just like he flip flopped on open borders when he needed, he should have flip flopped on Cuba and Castro. Without a win in Florida, his gaining a plurality of delegates is now near impossible. He will basically have to run the table and that’s not going to happen. Dumbass!

    In the big black woman’s hateful TDS-filled rant the other day, did you notice how many digs she got in?

    One of the was to call Republicans undemocratic. It is one of the DIMs favorite lines and a lie. Each Club sets their own rules in advance and they follow those rules. That is how democracy works. Just ask ILLary We Must Follow The Rules Clinton.

    The diatribe went on to say we are even cancelling some of our primaries. Again, that is how democracy works, and especially when you have an incumbent President who has a 95% approval rate, PLUS, PLUS, PLUS. Why have a primary if there are no contenders in the state?

    We are thrifty. people, that is what conservatives and true conservatism is all about. We are the original green party, but for real reasons, personal reasons, and by the actions we take every day. I have recycled since I was a child and it was hard to do. There was no blue bins dropped at your driveway, and no recycling spots throughout the city. You had to take it to the recycling dumps in your vehicles. It is still hard, but we do it every day anyway.

    BTW, that’s really just the media and their perps whining that they didn’t get their political ad revenue payoffs in those states. No race = no media buys. Fewer stops by the candidates. less sucking up and less tourism. OUCH! How will they ever make that up? How are they ever going to earn an honest living?!

    Another charge was that we even have “winner take all” primaries. OMG!!! How awful!!!!! That sounds a lot like the popular vote the DIMs are always whining about.

    Again this is all governed by predetermined rules, in each state, by each party.

    In many campaign ads she lamented the struggles about fighting for insurance during her mother’s battle with cancer. Meanwhile:

    “Gretchen Whitmer was born in 1971 in Lansing, Michigan, as the eldest of three children to Sharon H. “Sherry” Reisig and Richard Whitmer, who were both lawyers. Her father served as head of the state’s Department of Commerce under Governor William Milliken and was the president and CEO of Blue Cross Blue Shield…”

    The second I heard her say in one of her first ads “Let’s fix the damn roads” I knew she would be the next governor and that should would lay waste to the state economy and it’s surplus. She’s on track…

  38. After a suitable amount of time entertaining Bernie and another equally-old man who confessed to a US Felony on camera (and implicated the President), the Democratic Party, Inc. will once again make a corporate decision as to who their candidate will actually be: Hillary. Clinton.

    To these people, “2016 simply didn’t happen. The voters made the wrong choice and now we’re going to fix it.” Remove the wall, replace NAFTA, re-introduce the Trans-Pacific Partnership, remove all caps on illegal immigrants and non-immigrant visas, and give the Ukranian government one hour to get out so we can resume harvesting billions of dollars from them. We’ll settle back into routine: Clinton, Clinton, Bush-X, Bush-X, Chelsea, Chelsea, Bush-Y, Bush-Y … ahh, it will be glorious.

    I know it’s weird for me to say that – you naturally think that I’m being cynical – but that’s the way it was, for more than fifty years! They want it back and they think they can simply get it back. And this because they refuse to accept what PDJT meant and still means. He represents an interpretation of the Office of the President of the United States, and a new standard for government conduct, that these people know nothing of. They’re totally out-gunned and out-smarted, so they simply choose to ignore.
