Not true; Trump is great loser, a beautiful loser, the best loser ever.
Trump will probably be sniffing, tasting and Tweeting until the dang thing has run DRY! Even then...
Steve has turned political in his old age!
I just wonder what TDS will morph into in 2021 and on. Of course there will be a lot of "Blame Trump". I recall "Blame Bush" seemed to go on for a good 6 years, but its (Leftist's) anxiety is SO strong this time around that I don't think Trump-bashing will prove a sufficient outlet.
If the Republicans maintain Senate majority, that'd be a target, but they can't rally around that as easily as Trump. Any thoughts on who/what will stand in for Orange Man Bad?
Well, it probably WON'T be Mike Pence. That's some consolation.
I mean starting January 2021. I feel like Trump-bashing will fade away pretty quick. The blaming will go on, sure, for several years.... but if he's not president of the uSA, I don't think it has much bite. Where can they effectively channel their rage and vitriol? Not that it makes any practical difference, I just like to think about what's coming next.
Yeah, or that old joke sometimes retold these days in Germany. You know, Americans are intelligent, Trump-voters and honest. But always only two of these properties at the same time: honest Trump-voters are not intelligent, intelligent Trump-voters are not honest and intelligent and honest people do not vote for Trump.
Reality is, of course, more complicated.
If Biden can do what he says (govern on behalf of ALL Americans) and by this I mean: a) get Covid 19 under control b) shore up the social safety net c) shore up Obamacare d) get the deficit under control... he will get a second term.
However, if he governs on behalf of his base and gets influence by liberal culture (e.g. the grievance coalition, BLM, defund the police, etc.)... he will get decimated in 4 years...
Trying to convince Trump supporters that election fraud didn't happen is an impossible task. They're never swayed by evidence; a lack of evidence won't be any more persuasive. It's not worth the effort.
If he can do ANY of them - he should get a second term. If he can do all four - he should be President in Perpetuity - including the Afterlife. And same for Kamala Harris.
As an aside, hasn't Biden already said he doesn't intend to run for reelection?
Being the same age as Mr. Biden, I can certainly understand his decision. The very thought of working could shorten my life. But I have one excuse I think Mr. Biden lacks. For many years, I have, um... suffered, I guess, from a long-term chronic condition... called laziness.
I don't think people like the former Mugabe and other power-hungry "leaders" around the world would agree with your argument. But I agree, though!
Not that I've ever heard.
Rival teams like Hillary supporters at the time and
Democrats continued to invest in the false fabricated intelligence dossier they funded as a key piece of evidence against Trump. At the time it was impossible to convene people that the dossier contained false information it was fake.
This is all ugly part of elections.
I liked the unity message that Biden presented and this is a good way to proceed.
We all know there always some irregularities and some fraud because of the nature of some people but is it significant we don't know.
That's because neither you nor I are wicked assholes like Mugabe.
Rich is right. It obviously isn't worth the effort.
Trump will have to somehow probably reverse some 200,000 to 300,000 votes in 3 or 4 states to win the election. So that carton of spoiled milk in the fridge is curdled not just soar but check it on Monday, maybe it will have turned to sweet milk by then.
Yeah - and maybe, hopefully, nobody gets food poisoning from it... who knows?
