Biden's own voice.  He's not even good on the teleprompter.  But off of it we see objective signs of cognitive decline.  But to be credit they change his position so quickly it's unreasonable to expect Biden to remember.

 

And if you believed that, you think the Ds want mail in voting to get a fair count. 

 

Did you not get the new talking points, Joe? Ya gotta stay current!

Do you honestly not understand the difference between someone who said something stupid as an off color joke one time and some one who: Has been sued twice for housing discrimination against A

He is.

I honestly don't know what will happen tomorrow. But if Joe Biden wins, you will be allowed to own all the guns you want, worship your God however you want, and hate whomever you want in the privacy o

This made me LOL because I pictured Trump's flabby trust fund a$$ getting handed to him in a street fight.

 

And NDJ's answer to all of the above questions is either "Obama" or "Hillary." But seriously, NDJ doesn't answer questions, that takes time away from trolling.

by street smart - he can lie wt the best of them and and con himself into the presidency.     It is obvious that he isn't smart as in intelligence.  But in regards to a street fight - I think Biden knocks him out in 5 seconds.

Reminded me of this. Joe Biden vs. Donald Trump on protestors:

 

 

You tell me who looked more afraid.

This is funny, because Joe probably does know what types of questions he will get asked. He's probably prepared answers in regards to Covid, protesting, climate change, police, military, etc - you know like any competent adult running for office would.

There has to be some savvy to Trump, because he charted his own course, ignored conventional wisdom, and basically spanked both the Republican and Democrat parties.

 

On the other hand, he's not even an a$$-kicker in his own chosen world. The Bloomberg's of the world aren't his peers -- they think he's a terrible businessman and a clown. He had to continually get bailed out: by his dad, then the Russian banks, then by Mark Burnett who created the character people ended up voting for: the host of Celebrity Apprentice. Jesus, the man got played by Kim Jon Un.  

 

Maybe by "street smarts" we mean the ability to make the common man so angry at elites and minorities that they don't notice it's actually Trump picking their pocket. 

 

As a street level con-man he's too clumsy and would have been arrested long ago. If he were a real-world mob boss, his body would have been dumped in the East River in the 1980s.  But somehow in the political realm in this particular moment in time, Trump's "smarts" work like street crack.

For everything I can think of, Trump has done something as bad or worse. So, let's say some video proof of Tara Reade's allegations comes out, some security camera caught it on tape, or something. That's terrible for Biden's candidacy - except we have the equivalent for Trump (and have had since 2016), plus like two dozen more women accusing him.  To an objective voter, this would still make Biden the lesser of two evils.

 

Maybe there's something concrete they can dig up in Ukraine with Hunter Biden - but Trump's children have benefitted financially from Trump holding office to such a greater extent that this shouldn't mean anything to an objective voter.

 

There's the "Biden's losing his mind" argument the right is trying to push, but anyone who's watched Biden & Trump speak knows that's a glass house both men live in, and neither can throw a stone that's going to affect the voters.

 

Can some policy issue come out that affects Biden? Maybe? But I can't think of anything Biden has done or might do that would be worse than what Trump has been doing. Again, I'm not seeing room for a screw-up there.

 

I don't know enough about Biden's alleged scandals to rattle off any more. Maybe someone else can help.

 

Thanks.  Alleged scandals and skeletons in the closet don't carry much weight these days IMHO.  Personally I'd write them off and move on.  So he should be fine and it won't derail anything.  As for losing his mind, he's had lots of time to practice, prepare and be mentally ready.  His staff or team is doing a good job with him.  I think the debates will be entertaining for sure.  Both of these guys are really getting up there in age.  Even if they both slip up, which will happen, I still don't see any chance Biden gets derailed and loses.

This is such a tiresome train of thought from someone who supports the most incompetent President in modern history and has troubles talking and reading off of teleprompters.  

 

Seriously.  Trumpees trying to push this look very desperate and obviously have nothing else to sell Trump on.

 

The guy can't even answer a question straight at a town hall meeting without his mind wandering into la la land.

 

Notre Dame Joe.....please watch this and tell me he's the most amazing speaker in the world and his mind is perfect.

If you don't know Tyler Childers, you are missing out on a national treasure. He's an amazing songwriter whose voice only aids in the story telling and the pain in it. I know I can't put this in a status update since it's P&R related, and I don't really know where else this needs to go. But he does give a call to action to vote, so I guess here is as good of a place as any. His calls for empathy and understanding of our fellow man ring especially true to me. "Love each other, no exceptions." 

 

If you want some good music from him: White House Road, Charleston Girl, Dead Man's Curve, and for a fun one Ever Lovin' Hand.

Pause the daily drivel to say RIP RBG.  Her strength of character made her a true American heroine.  Hard to find any jurist with a wider gap between my opinion of his jurisprudence and my respect for the person.  Scalia and Ginsburg, now besties for eternity.

Hold onto your butts, Nebraska. We could matter.

 

 

Forgive my ignorance, but why is Omaha always the dissenting vote on the national map? Surely there are other blue districts in states that vote red. Yet those states don't split off an electoral vote or two for that district.

 

Regardless of the answer, I will say that I hate the electoral college.

Most states have a winner-take-all approach to the Electoral College.

 

That's not Nebraska. You win the district, you get one of our three EC votes.

 

Think what you will about the Electoral College, but this is the closest we get to actual democracy in America.

 

In truth, the Electoral College should have been abolished a couple centuries ago. By keeping it, we tacitly endorse the idea that Americans aren't educated enough to properly choose a president. Because that's all the EC is - a buffer between the electorate and stupidity.

 

If we're smart enough to stand shoulder to shoulder among the elite nations of the world, then a straight up vote should elect the president.

 

No districts. No colleges. Just my vote and your vote and everyone else's, and from that we pick the winner.
