    Default Biden-not pleased with performance-scatterbrained and sensible?

    He is a quantum leap over Trump, but he comes in behind Yang and Klobuchar, but ahead of Harris.

    He is sensible at the broad outlines. He will do the right things. He won't be an asshole. He will govern well.
    Still, he is not doing a good job tonight and I'm not impressed.

    I will vote for him, I'd prefer the Klobmeister or the Yangster. But I will think about the polls all along the way.

    I'm hoping liberals finally quit apologizing, in so many words, for being liberals

    time to move HARD to the Left, send a blue tsunami toward DC and the states

    It was that way the entire time. Blood vessel had popped. I think I had that happen once in my 20s

    It stays that way for a few weeks then goes away... It doesn't mean he is one cheeseburger from an infarction like the hog in chief

    Where does he think he is today?
    Abortion rights dogma can obscure human reason & harden the human heart so much that the same person who feels
    empathy for animal suffering can lack compassion for unborn children who experience lethal violence and excruciating
    pain in abortion.

    Unborn animals are protected in their nesting places, humans are not. To abort something is to end something
    which has begun. To abort life is to end it.

    Biden's eye fills with blood during CNN climate town hall

    Former Vice President Joe Biden's left eye appeared to have a blood vessel burst while he was participating in CNN's town hall on climate change.

    Biden, 76, has long been plagued by health issues. In 1988, he suffered an aneurysm that burst and required him to undergo emergency surgery. The then-senator was so close to death that a Catholic priest began preparing to administer the sacrament of last rites.

    Months later, surgeons clipped a second aneurysm before it burst. Biden then took a seven-month leave from the Senate following the surgery. Heís described the operation as ďthey literally had to take the top of my head off.Ē

    Doctors removed a benign polyp during a colonoscopy in 1996. In 2003, Biden had his gallbladder removed. He also suffers from asthma and allergies, and takes a prescription drug to lower his cholesterol. He has also taken medication for an enlarged prostate.

    Biden hasnít disclosed his medical history since 2008 when doctors found he had an irregular heartbeat.

    Have you ever met another non-bot that likes Klobuchar? At least Yang has a small following, is sometimes talked about, and appears to have qualified for the next round of debates. She averages 0.6% to his 2.4%, and he is ahead of big names like Spartacus and Beta.

    Anything to quote?? A link?? Anything??

    Corporate America is the lobbying arm of the CCP and Wall Street is the investor relations department

    Donald Trump is the first president in my lifetime who does not try to unite the American people - does not even pretend to try, instead, he tries to divide us

    We are witnessing the consequences of three years of this deliberate effort. We are witnessing the consequences of three years without mature leadership Mattis

    Whatís interesting to me is this idea of needing to select a candidate who can beat Trump when so many say every single Democrat will beat him. If thatís the case then electability isnít even an issue, itís about how progressive a candidate do you prefer.

    Light years ahead of Trump.

    He's responsible, dedicated to the function of the job.

    I'd vote for him easily over Trump.

    Would rather have Sanders or Warren, or even Williamson, but ready to vote for ANY Dem that wins the nom.

    IMHO that is the YUGE mistake they made last time isn't it??

    Underestimating your foe can be written off as a blunder, twice is simply stupid.........

    I think what they say is that they'll vote for any candidate over Trump. This allows people with some common sense to make the argument for Biden. I think a moderate Dem is actually less electable than a hard progressive, because you lose the Bernie Bros in that case.
