I suspect you have not been watching New York Governor Cuomo's daily press conferences. For 8 months he's been one of the most active Trump critics, mainly about how Trump has screwed over New York State. If his AG answers to Cuomo, Trump's going down.

Epstein had piles of money too, and he's dead now.

Say what we will about the relative progressive/centrist/conservative political ideology of politicians - it's important to remember that getting elected means taking on the responsibilities of a job that is primarily one of operating a government system.

I'd say that Biden is off to an amazing start at getting the job under control again. With two months to go to his inauguration, he is already the de facto functioning President, taking the abandoned reins of a stampeding eight team stagecoach, while the supposed leader is back in the boot drinking three bottles of rum a day.

Whatever weaknesses Biden has as to the policies I would like to see implemented, they are overshadowed at this time by the great ability he is demonstrating to run the government under extremely adverse conditions.


You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes the old model obsolete.

When Biden actually takes over he has a literal mountain of pain to deal with. He has already said he is going to make covid-19 healthcare free, update Obamacare, take care of an environment which was abandoned by Trump. In addition to that one he will also have an unemployment problem with something like 40%+ unemployment (equaling that of the great depression). Now ad in thousands of happy white nationalists, and a covid-19 that is just starting to crest at the highest point we have had so far. Oh, also remember, he will also inherit a nation debt which is two times our current GNP and, apparently, his promises stand a good chance of adding a minimum of 2 trillion to the existing debt.

The real problem is that the aforementioned problems are only about half the real problems and he will be fighting against an established group of almost 50% of the population which believes he stole an election, and isn't worthy of kissing their lord and master's anything! Add in that these loons a quite capable of making it a fight to the death!

The thing that is wrong with the previous is that these are not just Biden problems they are, unfortunately, OUR PROBLEMS TOO!

He's going to be a helluva lot better than Trump, if he just stops breaking stuff and acts like a regular human being. All the federal agencies that Trump sabotaged get back to functioning once Trump's cronies are gone.

Biden ... has a literal mountain of pain to deal with

Mr Trump is sabotaging PE Biden ... laying the foundation for whoever will run in 2024. PE Biden will be tag-teamed by out going bombs and Sen McConnell. Sen McConnell will try to ensure PE Biden will suffer from all the damage.

I recommend Democrats find the best PR group available to send appropriate messages on Republican attempts to destroy America.

Some think Mr Trump's influence will dissipate after he gets dragged out of the WH, but all indications seem to point to a more deleterious, noxious pattern of behavior from Republicans.

Ironic thing:

Trump Suppressed His Own Voters In Georgia

Quote:
Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger says President Donald Trump could have won the state by 10,000 votes ― if he hadn’t discouraged the votes of his own supporters.

Raffensperger, a Republican, ordered a recount. But he also told Atlanta ABC affiliate WSB that the president hurt his own cause by discouraging mail-in voting, which he portrayed as a “scam.”

Raffensperger told the station that 24,000 Republican voters who voted absentee in the primary did not vote in the general election.

“Those 24,000 people did not vote in the fall,” Raffensperger said. “They did not vote absentee because they were told by the president, ‘Don’t vote absentee. It’s not secure.’ But then they did not come out and vote in person.”

Yeah, basically role reversal now. Democrats will project on republicans that which they are guilty of over the Trump administration.

Nobody’s material conditions will be improved outside the corporate beltways and Republicans will get to redistrict the electoral map. Dems will hippie punch to cover for their venality and wealthy fail son incompetence while republicans deliver identity politics in the form of working class grievances.

Austerity will be a bipartisan project.

The politics of the great boomer battle in the sky will continue as the needles go deeper into the red.

Count on it. All those lofty lefty ideals will fall by the wayside as the deficit once again comes into focus.

After trillions spent on shareholders.

Two warring fraternity houses full of the worst People is what passes for our political timber anymore. The lumber sure ain’t what it used to be.

Breadlines in Dallas looked ominous.

Whut are you even talking about?
Bidens handlers are stocking his pond with war lobbyists, oil lobbyists hedge fund lobbyists etc.

Remember all that 'we believe in science!' posing in camp Lib so recently?
Remember how Trump was accused of being compromised with foreign entanglements?
Trump was a serial liar?
Racists?

All which applies equally to Biden. More so in some ways even.


Nope, he's John Wayne, apparently.



I wonder what movie language will get used to deal with the reality of escalating conflicts on the frontiers again.

Something that has been strangely quite during Trumps time. Bidencorp is Pro war and Pro fossil fuel burning now.
