re: #81 Yeah Sure WhatEVs

Do you think Biden is playing on the Kumbaya thing? I don’t think he is. I think he is in complete denial.

He definitely comes off as a sincere believer in the collegiality of the Senate, what with his history, and that’s a gigantic fucking landmine when dealing with McConnell, possibly the single most responsible person for the total shredding of comity and norms.

That said…

Not a fan of Biden. Wish we lived in a country that would elect Harris or Warren, be we don’t. So it will be a dude. And Biden, in my opinion will be the dude. And I will vote for him.

I think he belongs to a time far gone. I think he will struggle to keep things from getting worse without making things appreciably better. While that is more than a bit depressing, it is world’s better than the fat orange tyrant having another term.

That being said, I will vote for any Dem over the fot. I won’t vote for Tulsi, but she’s not a Dem.

Essentially this. If Biden is the nom, I will vote for him without hesitation, because Trump absolutely needs to go, any Trump replacement (however unlikely) needs to go, and Dems need some modicum of control back in Washington.

I just fear he will play an even softer hand against the GOP than Obama did initially and find himself even more stonewalled by GOP intransigence than ever. A holding pattern is better than shit actively getting worse, but that’s not comforting to think of when the usual time limit the American electorate gives the Dems to fix GOP fuck-ups looms.
