What Biden actually is and what right-wing voters will believe he is are different things.

Those people aren't going to vote D no matter who the nominee is.

So you've got absolutely nothing at all to indicate that Amash would prefer a Biden presidency to a Trump presidency? Great. :)

Amash wanted to impeach Trump.  He burned bridges within the GOP because of it.  Now you think he wants to see Trump re-elected.  Bernie broke your brain.

Yes, I get it. He doesn't like Donald Trump.

Does he prefer Joe Biden becoming president in 2020? What would indicate that to me?

Actually I think it is Biden who is doing him in.

The fact that he left the Republican Party over his distaste of trump is pretty good evidence that he ain’t voting for trump no matter what. But yeah he’s going to vote for trump.

Here's what I said that everyone is responding to:
"I think if you put a gun to Amash's head and he has to vote for Trump or Biden, he's voting for Trump."

Do you disagree with what I actually said?

(Also, it's hilarious how hard this board works to rehabilitate the image of conservatives like Amash and the cadre of neo-con Iraq war cheerleaders in the pundocracy while endlessly bashing the left. It's almost like... hmmm...)

And what's my answer?

Would I prefer Joe Biden or Donald Trump becoming president in 2020.

There is a real, honest answer and a dipshit troll answer intended to continue with pointless, divisive rancor... let's see which one is chosen!

That's fantastic, can you show me something that indicates that Amash prefers Joe Biden?

I advocated the impeachment of Bill Clinton for perjury and I still would've voted for him over any Republican had he been able to run again in 2000.

I thought Hillary was an awful pile of dogshit and voted for her over Trump.

I think Biden is a rapist and I'll almost certainly vote for him, too.

Can you show something that indicates Amash prefers Trump?  He seems to keep his opinion of Biden close to the vest, but hasn't had any problems unloading on dotard.  That's better evidence than anything you can come up with to support your wrong opinion.

He was a Republican 20 minutes ago.

He hasn't joined any other party or group that is, let's say, left of the Republican party.

He hasn't indicated any shift away from the political values that made him a Republican for decades.

He has not joined up with any non-Republican or non-right-winger in any way.

If you've got some kind of information or details on this that would educate me, please share. I love to learn. :)

He probably does prefer a Republican president (so long as it's not dotard) to a Democratic one.  I think that's probably correct, but guess what... dotard is going to be the R nominee so what's your point?

My point is pretty obvious: I have no reason to believe that he prefers Joe Biden to Donald Trump.

The idea that he would go against everything he's stood for for decades just because he hates one individual Republican doesn't make any sense to me. Also, none of you can provide any evidence or reason for me to believe it other than the usual flailing and weak attempts at dunking. Which, oddly, I don't find convincing. :)

But that's just my perspective. The value systems and allegiances of many here seem to be a lot more flexible, so perhaps you guys don't see a problem with voting for a Republican one cycle and a Democrat the next. Amash seems to be more like me, though, a dogged principle guy (not saying that's better or worse, maybe he and I are just spergy together), so I think my read is more rational.

I hated the Clintons and voted for them 3 times and didn't ever consider voting for their opponent for a nanosecond.
I don't hate Joe Biden (I think he's pathetic and regressive), but I'd vote for him over Trump in a heartbeat if forced to.

Do you think Amash sees Trump as the future of Republican politics or a temporary aberration that can be overcome in the future? Seems very obvious to me.

I agree with Biff. You should all put me on ignore.

That way you never have to be challenged and can exist in a nice little echo chamber. Not even being sarcastic. Block me, please. :)

Can you not extrapolate what I typed to answer your own question?  Also, what does my answer have to do with rehabbing his image?  He’s not voting for Trump, no matter what. Would he vote for Biden in November this year? No clue, but if he only has those two choices and must pick one, he’d pick Biden. You don’t join a club for 30 years and basically get exiled from that club because of one of its members and then vote to have that member stay in charge. 
 

I still wouldn’t vote for Amash. if this doesn’t answer your question you’ll need to find someone else to answer them, because I don’t have the interest level to keep this up.

Nothing will ever answer his questions.  He's performance art, as mentioned above.  Ignore function is your friend.

But you also don't vote for the leader of the rival club.

He has a ton of allegiances to Republicans. He has zero to Democrats.

Disagreement is OK.

I love how people start a conversation with me, when I was never talking to them, and then tell me how I'm not worth their time.

Weird how that works.

Kind of like people who put me on ignore but can't stop thinking and talking about me.

Who would've become President if Trump had been impeached and removed? Who will become President if Trump loses in November?

To know Amash's true libertarian credentials, we need to know his age of consent views.

Look, I’m not saying we should abolish age of consent laws, what I’m saying is that we aren’t even having the discussion and that needs to change. We should always be challenging and analyzing our laws whether it’s age of consent or DWI laws or child support or the abolishment of family court. That is what makes America great.

Saw Amash on Bill Maher last night and was not impressed at all. Very conservative - a more Rand Paul extreme type conservative. And truthfully I’ve never really understood what a Libertarian is except maybe cafeteria style politics. Pick whatever you believe. I’m not sure how much traction this guy will get and who he would hurt except Trump. There would be that young vs. old but he didn’t come across Presidential.
