Donald: You're fired.
A nice comeback:https://twitter.com/GretaThunberg/statu ... 5522524162
Ok so throughout the campaign, the right moaned and moaned and moaned about Biden and "reasonable" Democrats not condemning rioting enough (despite them doing so), so I ask here: where are all the "reasonable" Republicans condemning Trump's current authoritarian behavior and making up false claims about voter fraud? Right-Wing Privilege, as ever.....
Nice way to spin the disaster by the Democrats down ballot.
Disaster is also an understatement.
Pelosi didn't even care of coming up with a COVID relief measure that goes at least half way to the GOP's proposal. She was so sure of her winning, now she is barely being seen since the defeat that was HUGE. Schumer too.
Also considering the huge help from the fake polling, the MSM the Democrats had, the huge fundraising, this election as a whole, even if Biden win, is a HUGE loss for Democrats.
The big story here is how you can become so delusional when you believe in your own fake polls. Now you want to spin these results which look to be a TOTAL repudiation of the Democrats and the political and corporate establishment of this country.
So let me get this straight, the Democrats choose the most right-wing politician in the primaries - a guy who has spent his entire political career compromising with Republicans in the name of "bipartisanship", supplement him with a policy platform that has barely anything remotely liberal in it at all in the hope that it will convince Republicans to vote for him because "he is the most electable" and anyone else "will be labelled a socialist".....and then what happens come election time? The whole of the Right spend the entirety of the campaign calling him a socialist and Republicans vote for Donald in even greater numbers than before with Joe barely being able to eek out a win...
and then the suggested solution to this conundrum is that the Democrats should move even further to the right?
Biden has all the characteristics that the right wing should love; his crime bill put lots and lots of People Of Colour into jail and essentially created the prison-industrial complex, his grand bargain with Mitch McConnell made the Bush Tax Cuts permanent (something that even Bush couldn't even do), he was opposed to integration policies such as busing and worked alongside segregationists to achieve such ends, his loyalty to Israel was greater than that of nearly anyone in the Senate, he voted for both the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, under his vice-presidency more Latinos were deported than under any other administration, he spent decades trying to cut Social Security, he voted for every single increase to the military budget, he gutted Anti-Usury laws - making it easier for Credit Card companies to rip off poor people, he wants to give more money to the police, and he wrote the bankrupcy bill which allows wealthy elites like Donald Trump to declare bankruptcy (multiple times!) and wipe away all their debts whilst the average person can't ever get rid of student debt.
All of these are policies that conservatives love
. Unsurprisingly, however, when you run a Republican-Lite like Biden against a real Republican like Trump, Republican voters will - by in large - vote for the real thing.
It's hard not to think that most of the other candidates on the democratic debates would have been able to do a much better job against Trump on election day. Booker would have been able to absolutely clobber him at the polls.
Surely this is the stupidest man ever to hold office.
I would dispute that the stupidest man ever to hold the office as POTUS. IMO he is only the stupidest man to hold the office as POTUS so far
since theoretically there might some even stupider then Trump to hold the office as POTUS in the future. Perhaps not likely but you never know.
Remember how back in the late 2000s we all thought that there'd never be a president stupider that Bush II?
EDIT: No, Bernie is not it either. He appeals to one group and one group only (i.e. young college students), but that's it.
Not true. I'm not a Bernie supporter but the fact is that he had more appeal to Latinos and Black voters than any other of the democrat candidates. Both are demographics that Biden struggled with.https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/wh ... coalition/https://www.univision.com/univision-new ... ision-poll
Democrats need to double down on being--and representing themselves--as the party of labor. We should lift the ship for all--white, black, or purple while accepting there are things that make lifting some easier than others. Connect with voters like Obama.
For sure. Biden in particular was always going to struggle with this - he's a corporatist - always known as a friend of Wall Street, not necessarily labor. I think there's a lot of perceived elitism too (rightly or wrongly). Trump was particularly good at capturing the vote of labor who were disaffected with Obama era corporatism.
All the air of the democrats is taking up by uneducated folks that label those that have other ideas as " socialist/communist/SJW radical" These are labels applied by folks that want to control others.
Agreed, but lets be honest, no matter who the Democratic nominee was, they were always going to be smeared with those labels, no matter what their policy platform or legislative record is. As such, you might as well chose a candidate/platform that actually has liberal stuff in there. Policies like Medicare For All polls at ~70% nationally and will be even higher amongst the Democratic base. Same with raising the minimum wage, taxing the rich etc. I voted against drug legalization a few weeks ago, but in the US that is quite popular and won on down ballot initiatives across multiple states. Arizona voted on a down-ballot initiative to raise taxes on the rich. Yet somehow the Democratic presidential nominee doesn't support any of these. Doesn't seem like that was ever going to be a winning strategy IMO.
It's hard to conclude anything other than that the Democrats would much rather court Republicans than Progressives...https://thehill.com/hilltv/what-america ... re-for-all
The coping method is to deny reality, and declare that the numbers are wrong. Fake news!

More Right-Wing Privilege. Steve Bannon is on bail for fraud. Can you imagine if a Muslim on parole - pending trial - said that the FBI's director should have their head on a pike? They'd be arrested and locked up before they'd even finished the sentence.
Yep, they'll drop him like a dirty tissue. He was always just a means to an end for the GOP, a useful idiot that gained them plenty of votes. Once he's of no use to them anymore, he might find himself quite lonely.
He got them their tax cuts, he got them three new Supreme Court Justices - that's what matters.
It seems Fox news is no longer enough right wing for Trump voters.
Trump supporters across the United States increasingly say they no longer trust Fox News, the Rupert Murdoch-owned TV network that has acted as one of the president’s staunchest allies in past years.
As Fox News announced more state-level victories for Joe Biden on Wednesday, Trump supporters across the country grew more vocal in their frustration with the network. Some say they have shifted their allegiance to media outlets that lean even further right, such as One America News, which employs a prominent conspiracy theorist as one of its correspondents.
Well if Rupert Murdoch is done with Trump, then he really is toast. Tune into FOX on January 21st when the FOX & Friends panel is aghast at Joe Biden's suit choice - surely one of the greatest scandals in presidential history!
Anyone want to place bets that if Trump loses, he'll be on a one way flight out on Jan 20th to a country without an extradition treaty with the US?
Surely it could be before January 21st. Part of me wants this to happen purely to see how his supporters try to rationalize it. Especially if its somewhere like Russia.
This is a ridiculously false statement. If you narrowed your statement to NBC or Rasmussen national polls, or maybe some battleground state polls, maybe you'd have a point, but you just said they were ALL wrong. Do you have evidence of this?
The popular vote difference in the current tally represents 5-6 points. Can you tell me what the RCP average says? That's why we have things like averages - statistics has value as a field because it works.https://www.realclearpolitics.com/epoll ... -6247.html
You have a right to your own opinion, not your own facts. Can't change the reality of math.
I just want to know how he rationalises the polls that FOX News published which favored Biden. Was FOX complicit in the Mainstream Media conspiracy?
