she’s not likely to win anything.
but this may just be dry run thinking she’d have a real shot in 2024.

Moderates and independents have been hoping for a candidate like her.
She'll get more support than people think, if the media will give her the play and the corrupt party machines don't do too many dirty tricks to keep her down.

Moderates and independents have been hoping to see an Assad apologist run? I don’t think so.

Moderates and independents don't want to go to war with Assad over BS.
And think... hyperbolic establishment politicians and hardcore right wingers call those that don't want to go to war with every dictator of the month the Current CIC and media claim is a threat.... "a FILL-IN-THE-BLANK-DICTATOR apologist"
to try and shame them.

And aren't moved by the name calling and would rather act on the FACTS that folks like Assad are NOT a threat to the US, have not attack the US, and generally speaking we aren't helping the Syrians or the U.S. by trying to overthrow them.

They question of what role, if any, the US should play in Syria is a legitimate policy debate. That’s not why I object to Gabbard. I object to Gabbard because of her overt support for Assad and repeated efforts to call into question the numerous US and international bodies that have investigated and concluded that Assad used chemical weapons on his own people.

Maybe she's questioned it becasue it's questionable.
the 1st time Assad was accused of using cemical weapons ... after it was investigated it was found that he had not. it wasn't major news. but the international group's and many reporters investigations did show that to be the case.
I'm not sure why ... as SOON AS an chem attack happens... folks should ASSUME that Assad did it.. and kneejerkingly attack him militarily.

or name call folks that want to get PROOF of the crime before we have a "policy discussion" on what the U.S. gov't should do... if anything.

And I've never seen her "support" Assad, as in, wanting to send in troops to HELP him. Or pretend that he's not a bad guy.

If we use the terms "Support" and "Question" and "Attack" objectively across the board I think she'd end up in the "Question " category. while some on the right wanted to attack and assumed anyone who didn't want to do the same "SUPPORTED" Assad... and the left through in "Russia".

Again moderates/independents/libertarians/constitutional weary of the BS extremes of "if your not for us then your against us" narratives.

Free passes are bein' printed up at record pace.

Personally I don't see anything that wrong with her past comments but the point is if a conservative said these things (or even a lib like Kevin Hart) the left would be frothing at the mouth like a dude that was forced to have sex with Rachel Maddow.

Tulsi Gabbard under fire for past anti-gay remarks amid 2020 bid, says she has since 'evolved'
