Who Knew Kamala Harris Would Be So Bad At This?

I’m not ready to pull the plug on my prediction that Kamala Harris would be the Democrat nominee in 2020…yet. There’s way too much time for her and she has way too much ambition to count her out. But I have to admit that I am legitimately shocked at how bad she is at this.

I’m not sure why, but I thought she was quicker on her feet than she has proven to be in the debates.  Her delivery comes off as contrived, her campaign as way over-produced, and her convictions seem, well, non-existent.

The first glimpse of that came in the days immediately following her supposedly strong attack on front-runner Joe Biden in the inaugural debate:

In the days since Sen. Kamala D. Harris used the debate stage to challenge former vice president Joe Biden for opposing court-ordered busing in the 1970s, she has fielded an almost daily question: Would she support federally mandated busing to address school segregation now?

The California Democrat’s answers have varied, leading some to wonder how much her position actually differs from Biden’s current posture.

And now, it’s her healthcare position that has seemingly changed three times since declaring her candidacy.  The Washington Post has the receipts:

This has pander-queen written all over it.  It’s shallow, it’s condescending and disrespectful to voters, and it’s signaling not only a willingness to say or do anything to get elected, but also a lack of core, foundational beliefs.

I’ve got to be honest – I totally thought she would be better at this than she is.
