The top line is from another story a month or 2 back. Biden was at a private donor party and assured them that under his presidency nothing will fundamentally change. Sure enough a couple weeks back Biden said that his plans for the Trump tax cuts were to only repeal them by half.

The bottom line is me taking the article to the logical and cynical conclusion — that the guy who has repeatedly shown he can't be bothered to prove why he should be president and repeatedly admitted he doesn't want to rock the boat will just take it easy will let his donors owners do the thinking for him.

I'm sure their are, but I'm not convinced the welfare system was designed to keep people in poverty.

"Better than Trump" is not good enough. Did they forget that’s what caused them to lose in 2016.

Also, if the rumours about the DNC using the VP post to have their preferred candidate and Biden either being a fall guy or a puppet are true, would that be considered a dirty trick politically? If Clinton or Warren is nominated as VP, with the strong insinuation being that they’re the real president, how would people feel about that? I know that the #BernieOrElse people and a lot of republicans would consider that especially underhanded, for example.

I mean. I don't know of any particular controversies from Cuomo so yay?

But if that rumor is true I'm not sure how they plan to do it. Drop Biden right before the convention and, instead of defaulting to the second place option as would be sensible, force all delegates to vote on some rando Darkhorse option that wasn't even a candidate for the nominee?

Or have Biden win at the convention as is procedural but then force him to drop out? And then Biden, instead of putting the second place option forward as would be sensible, just side step and say some rando Darkhorse option that wasn't even a candidate is now the nominee?

It wouldn't be Clinton or Warren. Actually, considering the Dems were dumb enough to run Clinton in 2016 it might be, but besides that it would be a bit dirty. The depressing part about Biden is that you can still easily remember his VP debate with Ryan. Now to see him making these mistakes like he is is sad, and the idea that the Dems would run him with the intent of replacing him after the election would bother a lot of people.

Actually what caused them to lose would be a combination of gerrymandering and the (ongoing) problems with the way the electoral college works. She won the popular vote by a fair margin, and if we were going strictly by that Trump would never have been president.

You know, one of these days someone is going to have to straighten out for me whether the DNC is comprised of idiots who lack even the most basic of pattern recognition abilities, or secret shadowy puppet masters who are rigging primaries and manipulating the entire election into exactly who and what they want it to be. Because they kind of can't be both, and yet somehow I'm expected to believe they are.

Besides, the DNC can't have their pick of VP. It was clearly promised to the corporate overlords a mere page ago, if I'm counting right.

Popular vote has its own problems. I mean, everyone bashes on Trump because he lost the popular vote but you know who else lost that just recently? Bernie Sanders lost against Joe Biden.

2016 was an example where popular vote was beaten. 2020 is an example where popular vote results were shit.

Sticking his head in the sand leaving us unprepared in the crucial early days, repeatedly downplaying it when it first came got in, put incompetent people in charge of fighting it, continuously and ATM fighting measures to slow the spread, etc.


@Vivace

AFAIK he hasn't had any confrontations with this specific tribe. But Trump has repeatedly blasted Native's casinos for why his were failing/failed, and his repeated slurs against Warren means in his reptile brain attacking Natives as a whole is the same as attacking a political opponent.

As dumb as it is, it's always a grudge with Trump even if the grudge is something he imagined.

In some good news, Trump is no longer pushing Easter as the end of social distancing. It's been pushed back to a tentative April 30th.

How is that good news? We could miss out Easter, unless there's some sort of virtual easter egg hunting.

Still, I doubt the doctor was right about the heat ending the pandemic.

Makes sense. At least Spring Break really got extended this year.

I've been working 10h a day from home since this shit started here 3w ago; "spring break" my ass, this shit's more stressful and intense than at the office, can't god damned sneeze without someone wanting a "quick call" or a producer organizing an ad-hoc sync or twelve people sending me PMs with inane "urgent" requests or queries.
