It's no wonder the righties are trying to use that as a negative, still screeching about Biden 'hiding in the basement'.

Looks like being quiet is a more productive strategy than unrelenting and dishonest public self-promotion.

That seems to be the case Logtroll. Staying hid in the basement during the campaign was very smart strategy as it kept the election, the campaign focused on Trump and not Biden. The Republicans ranted and raved about Biden's successful basement strategy.

As for Biden's approval rating as president, his first month in office was all about Trump, 6 Jan and Trump's impeachment. No one paid any attention to Biden or his EO's he was signing. They say the first 100 days is a honeymoon for an incoming president. Biden's will probably last longer since his first month in office was all about Trump. Trump continues to jump into the limelight and that also may extend Biden's honeymoon with a majority of Americans.

There's cracks in that honeymoon however with the border crisis. Then Trump comes to the rescue last night taking the media's attention away from the border onto Trump and his remarks about McConnell, his wife and Pence. Good news for the Democrats, as long a the GOP is fractured with the Trumpers set on seeking revenge against Republicans who voted for impeachment and not concentrating on beating the Democrats in 2022, Trump is the best gift the Democrats could have hoped for.


It's high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first instead of their political party. For way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

Trump even went so far as to praise Schumer, (falsely) claiming Schumer would have prevented the transfer of power if Trump was a Democrat. That just shows how delusional Trump is.

Speaking of jungle primaries, I hear the only way to defeat Marjorie Green in 2022 is for all the Democrats in her district to vote for the Republican candidate challenging her. It's not like the Democratic candidate could ever win in that very red district, so they might as well use their vote to elect the lessor of two evils. They can also switch back to voting for the Democrat in the general election. No change of registration required in Georgia.

You're correct, we just register to vote here in Georgia. No party registration. One has their choice which primary to vote in. If there's a runoff though, one can vote in the primary for one party, then switch and vote in the other party's runoff.

now that makes sense, Green defeated her Democratic opponent something like 230,000 to 70,000. So there's no defeating her in the general election. Her district is about as safe Republican as a district can get.

We'll have to see what the Justice Department does regarding Green, Merrick Garland can't just ignore the 14th amendment, and Green and her district support is exactly why the 14th amendment was created. After the civil war, they had to let Confederate strongholds send representatives and senators to congress, but any who were set on insurrection were denied ever holding elected office. Green and her supporters fit this amendment perfectly.

I think Green would have to be convicted first. I don't think even the AG can make that decision on his own. There's an old saying, be careful what you wish for. Green might go via the 14th or other conviction, but someone will replace her. That replacement could be better or worse. No one really knows.

Green is incompetent, and not likely to be taken seriously for the rest of her term. She has effectively been "canceled".

She was supposed to ride Trump's coattails into the welcoming arms of his second term and the new Republican controlled House of Representatives. She will vote like any other Republican would vote and there's no need to replace her.

Exactly. Whether Green goes or if you're from the right AOC and Omar etc. Nothing is going change. Green gives the Democrats someone to hate and concentrate on while AOC and Omar does the same for the Republicans. Nothing changes in the grand scheme of things or politics if these three are gone or if they stay.

They're a lightning rod for the other party. A bone spur in the butt. But nothing more or less.
