Hammer home the GOP under Mitch moves like lightning for a judge appointment but they didn't do anything more on aid till they saw the polls everywhere not favoring them on Covid response
    It seems like Biden still naively thinks he can work with the Senate GOP where everyone else has failed.
    I think that plan is doomed, and he'll get slapped out of that nonsense sooner or later.

    Agreed. Its fine to say politically for him. I think it works in terms of getting swing state voters and republicans that are disgusted by Trump to vote for him. It is partially the reason that the trump campaign throwing how radical lefty he is doesn't stick. But in practice and actual governance to believe it will actually work is silly. I feel the same about him thinking about GOP for potential cabinet seats as well. Fine to say but absolutely not imo, if there is a better qualified Democrat.

    That's not something he's allowed to say in public, even if he agreed with it. Because millions of people need to believe the government can work for the Democrats to get a chance to govern.

    Trump's more likely to get election day voters than Biden has had luck with early voters. And had Trump not cleared the incredibly low bar of "better than last time", I think they might have thrown the towel in on him and not shown up to vote for him.

    Which, for Trump, I believe it's a lost cause at this point with eleven days to go. But if his voters stay home and don't bother? That would have been a killing blow to a lot of GOP Senate candidates and other Republicans down ballot.
    Eh. They'd have voted regardless. Let's not forget how riled up Trump tried to make everyone.

    Anyway, as for the Undecided Voters, Trump's behaviour might have appeared some of them, but just as many likely do not care and are going for Biden. 2016 was as much an outlier as has been commented many times.

    Yeah, that perplexes me. For eight years Biden watched Barack Obama extend a hand across the aisle to Republicans in good faith for the sake of bipartisan cooperation, only to have it bitten time after time after time by the rabid dogs in the GOP. If Trump goes down next month, that intransigence from Republicans will be even worse for no reason other than sheer spite because Trump lost. And here's an important reminder, it's not just about the presidency, the Senate is up for grabs, as I've said here numerous times, Biden winning the election would be almost meaningless if Democrats lose the Senate and Necrotic Mitch continues being that human roadblock where bills go to die.

    You continue to defend the indefensible.
    I don't agree with the barbarism. I have personally suggested alternatives (more immigration judges to handle the caseload, a more efficient screening process for asylum hearings.)

    But in order to say that the Republican plan is unacceptable, I need to know what the Democratic plan is, because they don't seem interested in fixing the problem.

    Taken to the logical extreme, anyone who supports pretty much any policy is OK with tremendous death and suffering (if the national speed limit was 20, we would certainly have less fatal accidents; it's probably not worth the tradeoff, but that's a discussion that can't be had if the need for a better policy alternative is dismissed.)

    It really shouldn't be that hard to have a better policy here. So, what is being suggested?

    Given that Biden was a member in the Obama administration, I'm guessing he saw missed opportunities and times President Obama, elected to the White House as one of the least experienced presidents ever, could have done better.

    But HUNTER BIDEN is the big issue.

    Meanwhile Trump has a secret Chinese bank account and the families of over 500 children they kidnapped cannot be found.
    But Democratic corruption must be the topic here.

    Sad.
    It's almost like they think we are too dumb to understand the concept of "concern trolling."

    Also, Fox snap poll shows Trump won. Of course, it is an outlier and unlike regular polls I have no idea how snap polls are taken.

    Wasn't this just from Lou Dobbs' twitter account, frequented by many international tweeters?

    Isaac Douvere. And apparently an online survey. But I get your point, the only trustworthy source on Fox are the Polls themselves.

    Perhaps the biggest blow to Trump's Hunter Biden debacle happened before and after the debate. As Politico explains Hunter Biden basically won the debate.

    https://www.politico.com/amp/news/20...-debate-431558


    Now here is THE BIG DEAL folks. After Trump paraded this guy in front of the media , when it came time after everything....it was a colossal fucking lie.


    But so far the Bobulinski allegations seem like bubkes. At 10:47, minutes after the debate ended, the Wall Street Journal, part of the same media empire as Fox News and the Post, reported, “Text messages and emails related to the venture that were provided to the Journal by Mr. Bobulinski, mainly from the spring and summer of 2017, don’t show either Hunter Biden or James Biden” — the former vice president’s brother — “discussing a role for Joe Biden in the venture.”

    Even if Bobulinski is telling the truth, that Joe Biden knew about the China enterprise, it’s not clear what the scandal is — he was a private citizen at the time and not yet running for president. Trump has elevated an unsubstantiated assertion that Biden had knowledge about his son’s legal and failed business venture to a “crime” for which he “should be in jail.” To put in context how absurd this allegation is, one of the first things George W. Bush did after he left the White House was deliver a paid speech in China. Somehow he remains at large.
    Now either he conned Trump into this or Trump basically knew this was bullshit. This casts doubt even more over the entire Hunter Biden deal if someone like this can appear , claim he has evidence and when looked at...has nothing.
