Democrat Jim Webb Says "His Party Has Moved Way Far to the Left." What ... - Ring of Fire
"...Former Democratic Senator Jim Webb of Virginia either doesn't get it or he is not paying attention. When Fox News host Bret Breir interviewed Webb July 12, Breir pointed out how Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren have energized the Democratic base, and he asked, Who are the Jim Webb Democrats? Webb's response: I believe we can bring a different tone to the Democratic Party. You're right. The party has moved way far to the left, and that's not my Democratic Party. Wake up, Mr. Webb. In case you haven't noticed, Bernie Sanders has been drawing hundreds of enthusiastic supporters in Alabama, Kentucky, and your own home state of Virginia. Increasingly, it's not about right or left. It's not even about red or blue anymore it's about green, and why so much of it is going to the 2% at the top while the other 98% get bupkis nada zilch...." see full article

Jim Webb Stands Up For 'Southern White Cultures' - Huffington Post

"...Webb has seemed eager to distinguish himself as the only Democratic candidate with a really nuanced take on the flag, in an apparent effort to win over white working-class voters who increasingly vote Republican. On Sunday, Baier asked Webb whether he thought efforts to remove Confederate symbols from public places were racial healing or political grandstanding. In response, Webb again compared the Confederate debate to Trump trashing Mexican immigrants. "Unfortunately, I think you're seeing it from both sides, which is why I mention the situation with Donald Trump with respect to Mexican-Americans," Webb said. "We're seeing an issue which should have been resolved and now is resolved, flying the Confederate battle flag in public places, morphing into something different."Webb then said he had talked about the issue with a close friend of his who happens to be African-American...." see full article

Jim Webb gets it right as he breaks ranks with the fashion of the moment - American Thinker (blog)

"...Jim Webb, Reagan's former secretary of the Navy, former Virginia senator, and oft-mentioned Democrat candidate, gets it right regarding the great battle flag issue.You see, other than his political history, Jim is a historian. I read his book Born Fighting, a book that gives the history of prominent Scots Irish people in our nation's history Ronald Reagan, Andrew Jackson among others. He respects history, and he and I exchanged e-mails after I congratulated him on his work.Here are some of Mr. Webb's comments. It is a brave moment for Mr. Webb, and also a refreshing one. He is a person standing up for what he believes is correct even though he is out of step with the fashion of the moment. He also happens to be exactly on point...." see full article

First impressions: Jim Webb has resume, needs excitement - DesMoinesRegister.com
"...On paper, Webb looks impressive. He's a genuine war hero he received a chest-full of medals for his service in Vietnam who opposed the invasion of Iraq. He's neither a career politician nor is he easy to peg ideologically: He served as President Ronald Reagan's secretary of the Navy and one term in the Senate as a Democrat.Webb has been pressing issues for years that candidates on the right and left are now trumpeting: criminal justice reform, income inequality and the need to pivot militarily and diplomatically to East Asia. And he could attract white working-class voters, whom he says the Democratic Party has ignored. He's a defender of gun rights and an advocate for veterans, Vietnamese immigrants and the Scots-Irish Appalachian stock from which he descends...." see full article

Why Jim Webb Is the Most Interesting Candidate in the Democratic Primary
"...As early as 2006, he was calling out economic elites in the kind of blistering language that seems to have anticipated Warren's appeal: The most important and unfortunately the least debated issue in politics today is our society's steady drift toward a class-based system, the likes of which we have not seen since the 19th century. America's top tier has grown infinitely richer and more removed over the past 25 years. It is not unfair to say that they are literally living in a different country. In the Senate, he supported a tax on bonuses for executives whose companies received government bailouts, as well as a higher capital gains tax.Whatever you think of that version of economic fairness, it strikes a serious chord with the Democratic base. Can Clinton capitalize on it? She can try. But economic populism is always going to sit awkwardly on a politician with Clinton's personal wealth and ties to the financial industry. Webb isn't impoverished by any stretch but he's a lot closer to the rest of us than Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush...." see full article

Jim Webb Could Awaken a New Cultural Cycle in America - New York Observer
"...Nor did he attack Hillary Clinton, Lindsey Graham, President Obama or anyone else. And there was a freshness to his demeanor that underscored a consummate professionalism in his presentation that is unseen, unheard now and for a very long time in a presidential candidate before since 1992 in my opinion that will bring him forward.For we in America are about to experience that historic, plate tectonic crush between caricature and originality in which the Establishment suddenly falls to dust in the night, and the first signs rise in the presidential poll of Wisconsin Democrats over the weekend in which Vermont's venerable, old socialist senator Bernie Sanders shocked the Establishment when he came up with 41 percent of the vote to Hillary Clinton's 49 percent. This is bad news for Jeb Bush as well, for as goes Hillary, so goes Jeb, like Sherlock Holmes and Moriarty, together locked in embrace, going over the falls together. Get ready...." see full article

Jim Webb And The Weirdest Campaign Stop In South Carolina - BuzzFeed News
"...There were no planted campaign volunteers the crowd waving Webb 2016 signs, no t-shirts with campaign slogans. It was clear that aside from his one staffer and the handful of VIPs that organizers introduced him to, I was probably one of the only person in the crowd that recognized him, let alone knew that he's running for president.It was a deeply weird moment and Webb, or anyone for that matter, could be forgiven feeling and looking awkward as he walks solitary to the viewing stand...." see full article

Jim Webb: The Democrat Who Could Win, But Wont
"...I happen to think the most terrifying prospect for Republicans would be a challenge to Hillary from the right: the candidacy of Jim Webb, an old-fashioned, truly moderate Reagan Democrat with military credentials Vietnam veteran and former Secretary of the Navy under Reagan and a lot of appeal in places like Appalachia, and among blue-collar types. That's a large part of the reason Webb managed to win a term as Senator from Virginia in 2006. ..." see full article

Why Democrats in Iowa and New Hampshire Should Choose Jim Webb Over Hillary Clinton

"...Furthermore, this narrow viewpoint doesn't take into account the foreign policy experience, impressive resume, character strengths, and leadership attributes of former Virginia Senator Jim Webb. Webb is a decorated Vietnam War Veteran, which is important since recent wars have involved counterinsurgency conflicts that remind many Americans of Vietnam...." see full article

HERE COMES TROUBLECan Jim Webb spark an anti-Hillary uprising?
"...Webb certainly looks like what the anti-Hillary Democrats are thirsting for: a skeptic of military interventionism, and a dyed-in the-wool champion of the less-privileged. No other potential candidate in either party can offer the combination of deep foreign policy expertise and anti-Wall Street fervor that Webb can muster and he's staked himself out clearly and consistently to Clinton's left in both realms...." see full article

America needs a Vietnam veteran like Jim Webb for president - The Hill (blog)

"...Webb is a two-time Purple Heart recipient, owner of the Navy Cross and Silver Star, and his heroics in battle contrast starkly to the Bush and Clinton's complete lack of military experience. While Bush and Clinton have greatly benefited from political dynasties as if the presidency were a crown to be passed between two families Webb's remarkable achievements epitomize America's belief in meritocracy and sacrifice...." see full article
