Welcome To The Weekend--And Don't Forget: Biden Is Better Than Trump, Biden Is Better Than Trump, Biden Is Better Than Trump, Biden Is Better Than Trump


The visceral hatred most people I know have for Trump sometime drives them crazy. I'm not joking. People I would have never expected it from wish him dead. They wish his family dead. The reactions shock me-- and I'm the one who's supposed to be the furthest left! Almost all of them are so infuriated by Trump that they're actually willing to entertain helping elect the worst possible Democratic alternative, Status Quo Joe Biden. That's a real shame, since it was a series of essentially worthless presidents very much like Biden that drove desperate voters to saddle the country with Trump.

Among historians, the 5 great American presidents are George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Franklin Roosevelt, Teddy Roosevelt and Thomas Jefferson-- all transformational presidents. There is also a consensus about some extraordinarily bad presidents: Trump, Warren G. Harding (the Biden of his day), Andrew Johnson, James Buchanan, Franklin Pierce. But mostly there were mediocrities-- lots and lots and lots of mediocrities: Richard Nixon, Calvin Coolidge, Gerald Ford, George W. Bush, Jimmy Carter...

Among Democrats today, at least according to one shaky source, Obama is more popular than Jesus. And, unfortunately, for these involved souls, God plucked a rib out of Obama and created Status Quo Joe in 2008. He didn't exist before 2008-- none of the ugly racism, the disgusting misogyny, the lying, the sucking up to corporate interests... there was no Joe Biden the war monger, no Joe Biden the arch conservative, no Joe Biden the corrupt corporate whore, no Joe Biden the man whose instincts get everything wrong every single time... No, for them there is just OBAMA's disciple. Maybe they're not as stupid as a Trump supporter; or maybe they are.

Biden has no reason to be president of the United States except he's a life-long politician-- in his case a really, really bad one with a long putrid record--and that being president is what he's wanted his whole life. What's the opposite of transformational. Biden would be that. Will be be disastrous as a president-- another Franklin Pierce, James Buchanan, Andrew Johnson, Warren G. Harding or, worse yet, Trump? Or merely another mediocrity. Mediocrity is what we can hope for from Biden. I suspect worse. Even Biden's moron supporters use the Warren Harding campaign there-- a "back to normalcy"-- to describe their man.

Bernie's the opposite; he's driven by ideas, not by ego. "I understand that our campaign is unique in the sense that we're going to try to win the Democratic primary, that we are going to try to beat Trump, but you know what else we're going to try to do? We're going to try to transform the United States of America... So our campaign has a different goal. It's to transform this country, and we're taking on the entire establishment when we do that." That establishment he's taking on very much includes Status Quo Joe and the garbage Democrats behind him.

A week ago, Status Quo Joe told his supporters at a rally in Philadelphia, "I'm going to say something outrageous: I know how to make government work... I helped make this government work before. And I can make it work again. To me, our principles must never be compromised. But compromise itself is not a dirty word. Consensus is not a weakness-- it's a necessity. It's how this government was designed to work." Work for who? The credit card companies? Corporate America? The political class? Work to accomplish what? Biden knows how to make government work in a way that drove tens of millions of voters to such despair that we now have a genuine fascist in the White House. We elected a fucking fascist because people like Biden thought they knew how to compromise and make government work... for someone.

There's only one thing stupider than a Biden supporter among the Democratic coalition-- an identity politics supporter. Snd those are the 3 lanes: the progressive, fundamental transformative change lane (Bernie and Elizabeth Warren), the status quo, conservative lane (Biden)and the identity politics lane (Kamala Harris, McKinsey Pete).

Lookin' forward to the debates? They could change everything... I'm told.

your transformative lane now should include Inslee. Yeah, I know he's a recent convert. And maybe he's sincere or maybe he's not. But you can certainly say the same for Bernie and Elizabeth based on 2016's endorsements.

Pete strikes me more as a status quo guy than biden, if your idea of status quo is obamanation. he's the white, gay obamanation.

biden is much more like trump than any of these. He's fundamentally purely evil (corrupt, racist, misogynist, lecherous and corrupt... did I mention corrupt?) If his past is anything, it is proof that he has a price on everything and is very good at finding some corporate interest who will pay that price.

He'll be worse than trump because he will never EVER undo any of trump's evils. And in this, he truly is an obamanation protégée.

You really SHOULD ask Anita Hill whether biden is pure shit or not.

People who don't understand the use of the "Biden is Better Than Trump" refrain, should probably be reading another blog and not this one. May I recommend Daily Kos?

How is Elizabeth Warren transformative and Tulsi Gabbard is not? Why are you erasing her?

If you are implying that it is meant ... ironically, that is not clear and my bad. It sure seemss like a chant meant to inculcate a delusion into a simple mind.
