2020 Presidential Election -- Biden v Trump: Sleepy Joe vs Dopey Don

Recommended Posts

With Bernie stepping aside, the matchup seems set.  Obviously something unexpected like a death, Joe being caught with a dead girl, or Donny being caught with a live boy, could derail this run off, but those probably aren't likely at this point.  It's the ultra establishment matchup, an east coast, corporatist career politician for the Democrats vs a corrupt, silver spoon, corporatist career provocateur for the GOP.  It's not the election the country needs, but it probably is the election the country deserves.  Both have quite obviously lost their fastballs and were already blunder machines in their prime, so this should be entertaining if not instructive in the effects of senility.  And all against the backdrop of a viral pandemic.  Woo Hoo!

Regardless, this will probably get very ugly with about 100 days left, but I saw a tweet we were now under 200 days until Election Day, so why not?  Let's do this.

His biggest evangelical supporter is having sex with his poolboy. This is another thing you could file to "ah well, nevertheless" if it actually happened.

Yeah, I’ve pretty much concluded that the only actual landmine is if he said he wanted to raise taxes by a single penny.  The pocketbook is all they really care about, so that might actually lose them just like it caused GHWB to go from 90% approval to out on his ass after one term.

Shooting people on 5th Avenue, abortion, etc., would be rationalized.

I think he could not only raise taxes, but he could spin it around and say that it will be off-set by the "billions and billions of dollars we are taking in from China from tariffs". His cult would see that and nod their head because they have no more understanding of tariffs than that toothless jackal does.

I’ll be sitting this election out. I’ve voted lesser of two evils for a while, but these latest bailouts have made it untenable for me. Both sides of the aisle so in favor of bailing out shitty behavior and even rewarding it, while attaching all kinds of strings and all kinds of shitty big govt inefficiency screwing things up with the process. And it’s just beginning. Whoever wins will be throwing money at all kinds of shit to try to hold it all together. These people are scumbags of the highest order. Let it burn.  
 

I’ll be watching and prepping for the fires to come.

You voted for trump. So you cause the fire then decide to “sit it out” after the guy you voted for and supported destroyed the country.

Biden doesn't have a chance in hell. Trump will lose the popular vote by a slightly bigger margin than 2016 and lose 1 or 2 rust belt states he won back then. Other than that the electoral college map will stay the same. Also lulzed at Florida being a swing state, that place is as red as Texas and will be for a very long time.

Not exactly. Hillary was a non starter for me.

You throw in Trump’s seeming anti establishment rhetoric and the second amendment issue and I was willing to pull the lever.  Hillary could’ve pulled the pin in any number of ways.  She’d be bailing out and throwing free money at all these shitheads without blinking. 
 

At this point Trump’s only real positives are his belligerence towards China, a dangerous state, and the second amendment issue. 
 

Really the only reason to vote R at this point is the second amendment. It’s the only thing that gives the average person any standing against the government. Whether for ideological reasons or financial ones, they’re right on that.

I have good news for Surly. If Joe wins he’s gonna totally restore decorum to the grift that his cabinet selected by Citigroup is handling. You’ll feel good about yourself as he bails out corporate scum bags.

Funny how you use this as an example of how Hillary was bad, but Trump did this with his tax law in 2017 and what he's doing today.

And what's happening now is necessary; no matter who the President is.  But you did spell it out clearly that would be a negative for you for Hillary.

You are right.  None of it is.

Meantime, 22 million have filed for unemployment, countless businesses nationwide may never return and state/city/county governments are going to be in a world of pain for the next 12-24 months.  But none of this is necessary.

No way he wins, I woulda said differently two months ago but with this economy, even if it goes well the next 3-4 months he’s gone. Second quarter numbers will be record breaking and precipitous declines in GDP. That headline coupled with how he handled February, he’s getting trounced.

Look at that 2016 electoral map. Are you kidding me? Does anyone see that repeating in this environment?

He’s toast, it’s the ONE good thing coming out of this pandemic.

None of this was inevitable. With a competent administration we could have done what South Korea, Iceland, Taiwan, or even Germany would have done. And did do.

But I guess we didn’t have the money to do it.

You aren't wrong here but I still disagree.  First off politics is a game of giving the people what they want.  Right now what they want is to be given stuff without having to pay for it.  That isn't the politicians fault.  That is the fault of society in general, and in particular the people who are voting.  This isn't going to change until the mindset of the electorate changes.  Secondly, I'm willing to listen and agree to an extent on the "both parties are the same"  when it comes to spending money or kissing Wall Street's ass.  However they are nowhere near the same on non-economic matters.  Democrats are already declaring war on the 1st, 2nd, and 4th Amendments(at least on any case involving Trump or a Supreme Court nominee).  Democrats are way more hell bent on regulating every aspect of your life than Republicans are. 

 

Yes, this can be seen as having to decide between the lesser of two evils.  I look at it as having to choose between what is at this point in time a necessary evil (Republicans) versus an unnecessary greater evil (Democrats).  There may not seem to be any difference between any particular Republican politician and any particular Democrat politician but there is a difference between the two political parties philosophically today, though it might not be intentional.  The Democrats are absolutely obsessed with political power and control.  They are easily the most authoritarian, tyrannical version of a political party that has existed in this country in my lifetime.  I hate the core of their party with every fiber of my being.  Not the ordinary Democrat voter, but the political organizers, financial backers, lobbyists, media sycophants, and string pulling weasels that have control of the party's inner workings.  Now Republicans may wish to behave in the same way, they may not.  It is so hard to tell because there are so many factions to the party that they never all move in the same direction at any time and they have the built in disadvantage of not having the media's lips attached to their ass on every single political issue.  If you think there is no difference between the parties or politicians ask yourself what are the chances of The Green New Deal being passed and signed into law with Republicans controlling Congress and sitting in the White House versus Democrats controlling Congress and sitting in the White House.

I really hope each of you are correct - I respectfully disagree and claiming the election is over when there's still time left on the clock is foolish.

This is going to be dogfight and the GOP and Trump will pull out every dirty trick in the book in an attempt to make Biden as unlikeable as Hillary (and Trump).  You are already seeing it with these donor-funded protests and fox News rantings by their idiots - the sole purpose of which is to drive up polarization in this country.

And voter suppression is going to be something to behold.  Can't wait to see about 5000x more polling places in Wilco and Katy than in Austin and Houston.

trump won Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania by a combined 75K votes over Hilary ( give or take). Hilary has to be one of the most disliked candidates we’ve seen in years. We also had Comey’s stupid ass reopen the FBI investigation against her about one week before the election. Trump and his campaign slowly bled out Wikileaks on a daily basis for the last 3 months of the campaign. Hilary didn’t campaign in Wisconsin and Michigan.

despite all of these epic mistakes by the Clinton campaign, trump still needed what amounted to be an inside straight to win the presidency. 
 

African Americans didn’t show up for Clinton and we’ve already seen in the primary that they will show up for Biden. Their will be change in the electoral map. That change will benefit Biden, but I could see Biden possibly losing to Trump but it would have to be 270-268 Or a very close electoral margin. 
 

trump is not and he never will be popular. The guy is going to have a hell of a fight in front of him to win again.

The Republicans currently have zero political philosophy except to hold on to power, and right now that means supporting Trump no matter what.

Trump is shit.  Trump is not a Republican, nor is he any kind of conservative.  He hasn't enacted any legislation consistent with actual Republican ideas, other than bigotry and feeding the rich.  The only decent legislation passed under his watch was the First Step Act and then he only preyed on Republican fear of him.

With a good economy and with republican voter suppression techniques,  it was theoretically possible that somehow trump might have stolen the election. Not that he actually would have won, mind you. But he might have been able to steal it.

That is no longer possible. We can debate, worry, wretch or whatever, but the fact remains that if trump is still the Republican candidate in November, he will lose. That is a fact and no amount of CNN, drudge report, or Alex Jones crap is gonna change that fact. 

Its alls over except the trolling. Which will continue unabated.
