    That is the entire issue. It's not even like I am questioning their practices. They have made no case for the hiring for anyone to question.

    As for what is in green?

    Politely, you are incorrect. Elizabeth Warren pointed out the merit that this has. It's an incredibly obvious issue.
    You want to focus on Hunter Bidens qualifications but the fact remains, without actual, incontrovertible evidence of Burisma profitting from hiring him all of this is no more than rumor and speculation which serves no purpose than to further Trumps hypocritical agenda.
    I'd argue it's simply another form purity test.

    Since Elizabeth Warren seemingly saw the potential need for just such a purity test?

    Gotta wonder where the issue is.

    It's quite similar to COVID-19. A disease disproportionately affected marginalized group, US Government did nothing, a NIH doctor named Fauci tried to sound the alarm but few listened to him.

    And again, a public health crisis didn't automatically favor the Left in that time.
    Again that is a non sequitur argument. First AIDS did not affect the LGBTQ community as a whole, it disproportionately affected homosexual men per percentage of the population, because the disease is easily transmitted through sexual intercourse involving penetration of the rectum.

    The other group it highly affected was drug addicted population because the disease is easily transmitted through the use of intravenous needles.

    Yes it is possible to get AIDS if you practice unsafe sex, but your not going to get it from someone talking close to you, and it didn't cause governments across the western world to enter into lock down.

    It seems you are incapable of criticizing Republicans for the same things you are unable to stop criticizing Democrats for. Have you considered applying for a job at the White House, or perhaps a press secretary for Mitch McConnell? You seem perfectly qualified for the position.

    Trump has decided it's a good idea to get his crowd chanting "LOCK HER UP" about Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, days after domestic terrorist followers of his were arrested plotting to kidnap her.

    I think we can start calling Michigan for Biden.

    Since the Democratic Party candidate got my vote, he's kinda the one that needs to be accountable.

    The party I've never voted for and can't see ever doing so in the future?

    What, exactly, would be the point of going into criticizing them?

    So they were well aware that they should take to heart the issues that a guy who has no intention of ever voting for them has with the way they operate?

    Disgusting. It is time for him to go and to be confined to the dustbin of 1 term Presidents.

    Trump won't be able to win if Republicans are judged on equal merits, because if people do that Trump fails by being Trump. This has been a trick by Republicans longer than we've been alive. What's really interesting is that even if all the lies the GOP has said about Biden were true, he'd still come off being less of a scumbag compared to Trump.

    Put simply...

    The outside chance that the many issue prone Democratic Party politicians could one day get a clue about that being upright public servants would be a way to get more than about a third of voting age Americans to consider voting for them?

    That's the exact opposite of "Doing Republican's Work For Them..."

    With even a little bit of the former happening?

    Republicans are eventually the non-issue that they would have been years ago if Democrats had been more dutiful public servants.

    Never mind that voting Biden/Harris on the first day of early voting is a pretty weird way of going about "Doing The Republicans Work For Them..."

    On this date in 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, as well as 2019, “Crazy/Stupid Republican of the Day posted profiles of the U.S. House Representative from California’s 1st Congressional District, Doug LaMalfa, one of the dumbest deniers of climate change on Capitol Hill, who actually cites a promise that God made to Noah in the Book of Genesis as proof against the phenomenon, and wants to eliminate carbon dioxide restrictions from the EPA, viewing it as “taking away plant food from the atmosphere”. He also compared IRS commissioner Lois Lerner to “the Republic of Korea”, which is actually SOUTH Korea while grilling her in hearings about the IRS scandal. LaMalfa speaks before Congress, lying and claiming that "We know now that one of the terrorists who participated in the attack on Paris last Friday entered Europe by posing as a refugee." (Fact-checking the Congressman: The terror attacks in Paris by jihadists from France and Belgium by trying to create greater restrictions to keep out Syrian refugees, of whom exactly zero were involved in those attacks.) Oh, and he also went conspiracy theorist regarding the money repaid to Iran that was frozen in banks in the Iranian Revolution in 1979, but returned interest-free in 2016, saying it was a secret delivery done "in the dark of the night on a pallet" (the Obama administration announced it was done six months prior to LaMalfa’s freak out on the House floor.).

    Since the election of Donald Trump, no matter how grievously stupid the President or his family might be… LaMalfa has been a tenacious defender of them. In 2017 alone, LaMalfa dug in deep on the most indefensible of reports… the first being his attempts to make the talk of the Trump campaign colluding with Russia go away by just declaring it “a load of crap”.
    http://www.latimes.com/politics/esse...htmlstory.html
    Now, never mind that Donald Trump Jr. already released e-mails that show he wanted the Russians’ help in gathered intelligence detrimental to Hillary Clinton… apparently LaMalfa wouldn’t know a turd if it hit him in the face (which might be an improvement). But no, that wasn’t all. After Donald Trump’s utterly revolting remarks following white supremacists marching in Charlottesville that led to the death of Heather Howeyer, and Trump’s claims that there were “many fine people there” or that “both sides” were responsible for the violence… Doug LaMalfa actually tried saying Trump’s response was fine because he had a long track record of speaking out against white supremacists. (HINT: Trump doesn’t, and even when he does, it’s after reporters have to PLEAD with him and say something bad about people as evil as David Duke after days or weeks of sidestepping it.)

    And speaking of Doug LaMalfa always getting Donald Trump’s back… in 2018, he defended the Trump regime’s family separation policy when they began locking migrant children seeking asylum, some toddlers, in cages. We knew he hated immigrants, but he’s “all-in” on the subject for someone who supposedly represents a district in a blue state.

    His voting record this term:



    Now, with Doug LaMalfa putzing about, working against the interests of the voters of his district, and defending a president with record low approval ratings because, well, he’s a sociopathic ***hole… you would probably guess that his town halls in California’s 1st have not gone well. Even if that district has a +10 Republican lean, and is atypical for what you’d expect for California… maybe people there aren’t livid, right? OH NO. They are downright PISSED. And LaMalfa can’t handle it. He walked out in the middle of a town hall in front of hundreds of constituents that were booing him back in April of 2017, and decided to regroup and host another town hall months later in a more controlled environment… at an Elks Lodge where he figured he would only see more conservative members of his constituency and fewer people ,overall. Well, that didn’t work either, as an elderly man who lives off of Medicaid grilled Rep. LaMalfa about his vote for Trumpcare and all the people who would have died if it had made it through the Senate. LaMalfa still felt his decision was justified, and the questioner walked away from his Congressman after cursing him, “May you die in pain.”

    Doug LaMalfa, thanks to that +10 lean, is one of the few Republicans left in the House in California. We’re hoping that changes in 2020, as Democratic candidate Audrey Denney looks to improve on her 45% performance at the polls, and see if the Golden State continues to go blue across the board.

    Yeah, we already know what that's like with him as POTUS.

    And I hope Hugh Jackman invites her for dinner afterwards.

    For baby-eating Hollywood elitism of not being kidnnapped against her will trying to save constituent lives. And general Wolverinism.

    RE: Hunter Biden. The people that scream fake news at everything they disagree with are believing a story from a tabloid. This is the GOP now.
