BREAKING: Rep. Tulsi Gabbard running for President in 2020

https://edition.cnn.com/2019/01/11/politics/tulsi-gabbard-van-jones/index.html

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard said Friday she will run for president in 2020.

"I have decided to run and will be making a formal announcement within the next week," the Hawaii Democrat told CNN's Van Jones during an interview slated to air at 7 p.m. Saturday on CNN's "The Van Jones Show."
Gabbard, an Iraq War veteran, currently serves on the House Foreign Affairs Committee. She is the first American Samoan and the first Hindu member of Congress.

46. Well, unfortunately I just checked and

it looks like you can run for 2 offices in Hawaii.

Can You Run for Congress and President? Depends Where
Hawaii, where Rep. Tulsi Gabbard is reportedly considering a run for president, is among several states that allow carve-outs for would-be presidents or vice presidents but otherwise prohibit running simultaneously for more than one office. Those exceptions are often called LBJ laws after the normally restrictive Texas changed its laws in 1959 to allow Lyndon B. Johnson to seek both the vice presidency and re-election to his Senate seat.

BUT.. since she's running for potus, too.. she will be nationally vetted.

105. Aloha, Darth! After that

post I researched it.. and, anyone can run for POTUS and Congress at the same time in Hawaii.

But.. since she is running for potus she will be nationally Vetted. It won't be like here where she won't even debate her opponents.

And, now she's attacked Mazie Hirono and Kamala Harris..

Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard accuses fellow Democrats of 'religious bigotry' in questioning judicial nominee

Hirono’s office responded Wednesday that Gabbard was mischaracterizing her questioning of Buescher, and that the senator was voicing her concerns about the nominee’s past public statements rather than his religion.

“It is unfortunate that Congresswoman Gabbard based her misguided opinion on the far-right wing manipulation of these straightforward questions,” Hirono spokesman Will Dempster said in a statement.

He added that over the past two years, Hirono “has been attacked by right wing ideologues for her examination of Donald Trump’s ideologically-driven nominees to the courts.”

“Senator Hirono asks all judicial nominees — particularly those who have expressed very strong personal ideological views in conflict with Supreme Court precedent — if they can be fair,” Dempster said. “She asked Mr. Buescher, who has a clear record of anti-choice activism, whether he could separate his personal beliefs from decisions he would make if confirmed for a lifetime appointment on the federal bench.”

Senator Kamala Harris was also questioning Buescher.

Since I can only c/p 4 paragraphs these are the ones I chose.. if you want to read more.. please go to the link.

107. Aloha, Cha! Thanks . . .

. . . for the link. I had no idea she made a stink out of that. She is frankly a complete idiot. Great response by Ms. Hirono, no surprise. And of course Gabbard attacks my (home state and favorite overall) senator, too. Oof.

Yeah, I'm sure your research is spot on, and I didn't mean she would have to resign from the House; I was just hoping she would! We talked about this before and I know you realize that I want Hirono to stay in office for a long, long time, but only because Gabbard is so damn young I have to ask - is there anyone who can contend with her when she, inevitably IMO, runs for that seat? A Schatz type maybe, young and dynamic, male or female, but not a blockhead like your esteemed Representative?

The US regime change policy had terrible consequences in human life. It might be a good debate for Gabbard and others to have, and primary voters can decide what they think.

55. She is an oddball

And that’s being polite. I hope she doesn’t bring too many conspiracies into the campaign.

I doubt she’d have entered the race without checking with him first.

64. Id really like to know the criteria

And how these grades were arrived at. Ive seen these ratings before and really have wonder how certain congress people are behind others. And how are any Democrats getting F's? To be fair though, I've only heard her on Joe Rogan and a couple other interviews, so I need to do more homework. For instance, I dont know anything about this Assad connection people are referring to.

93. Its a pretty shitty criteria actually, though don't expect that to stop anybody from

gleefully posting their findings even though they refuse to defend the methodology.

That said, I won't weigh in on how Gabbard might fair in a more appropriate study. It does seem like there are some issues where I would part company with her on, but I'd have to do more research before asserting that.

Here is a really long profile on her that I just finished reading:

https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2017/11/06/what-does-tulsi-gabbard-believe

Trey Gowdy, the South Carolina Republican, is one of her closest friends in Congress. He first spied her on the House floor, sitting on the Republican side of the aisle.

95. Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard accuses fellow Democrats of 'religious bigotry' in questioning judicial

nominee
Hirono’s office responded Wednesday that Gabbard was mischaracterizing her questioning of Buescher, and that the senator was voicing her concerns about the nominee’s past public statements rather than his religion.

“It is unfortunate that Congresswoman Gabbard based her misguided opinion on the far-right wing manipulation of these straightforward questions,” Hirono spokesman Will Dempster said in a statement.

He added that over the past two years, Hirono “has been attacked by right wing ideologues for her examination of Donald Trump’s ideologically-driven nominees to the courts.”

“Senator Hirono asks all judicial nominees — particularly those who have expressed very strong personal ideological views in conflict with Supreme Court precedent — if they can be fair,” Dempster said. “She asked Mr. Buescher, who has a clear record of anti-choice activism, whether he could separate his personal beliefs from decisions he would make if confirmed for a lifetime appointment on the federal bench.”

114. She's Taking On The Wrong Person

when she attacks Sen. Hirono. What I'm wondering is if AOC and social dems attacking other Dems especially those sit with her in Congress, if that has bolstered Tulsi's attacks on Dems.

I'm also wondering if there are possible ethics violations here with falsely calling out a DEm Senator and AOC's group calling a fellow, sitting Congressperson names.

115. Gabbard's not too smart, attacking

Senators Mazie Hirono and Kamala Harris over their questioning a trump nominee, for a life time judge appointment, on whether he will uphold the law.

As Mazie's spokesman says..

“It is unfortunate that Congresswoman Gabbard based her misguided opinion on the far-right wing manipulation of these straightforward questions,” Hirono spokesman Will Dempster said in a statement.

I don't know about it being Ethics Violations but I'm thinking it will turn out to not be very wise.

109. I have the sense that some that laugh at her now...

...may lose some sleep over her later.

I think she may be an effective tactician, and she has some potentially powerful issues at her disposal that could serve to highlight ideological polarization. For instance, millions of Democratic primary voters may gravitate to the idea of reducing the US foreign military presence, foreign intervention, etc., which may be at odds with some Democrats’ vision.
