Save Kennedy, Obama and Clinton (H), they are at least consistent.
And yes Pappy Joe, going by the look in your pic here, I'm as unhappy about this as you seem to be. But what the fuck am I gonna do?
The Dems have proven, once again, there is a one-half nano-degree difference between the and the GOP. 20 some diverse candidates and the DNC rams through and old dude stuck in 4th or 5th place with zero momentum and cash, and suddenly by the second primary and a handful of strong showing candidates drop out clearing the way for Pappy Joe.
Half the states basically get no say. None. The candidate is secure before they even get primaries - covid delays or not. THAT seems fair.
Should he win - and while he needs to, I'm not sure he can actually do it - he will be the oldest person to ever take office by eight years, the closest one in age being BLOTUS.
By all accounts, Reagan, who was almost 10 years younger than Pappy Joe (yes, that's what I'm going to be calling him) is currently at time of inauguration, was sinking well into dementia before the end of his second term. The end of Biden's second term (though no way he'll make that) he'd be eighty-fucking-six years old.
At best, the DNC is setting the dems up to fail in four years. At worst, they're setting the dems to fail in seven months...........until well after I'm dead. We won't recover what has happened in the last three years in my lifetime. Another four will absolutely devastate the nation for good. I see no way around that.
So now, Pappy Joe has to win. Honestly, at this point he has to win to save the Supreme Kangaroo Court.
I said earlier when it was Biden and Sanders that they needed to give their VP names now, so we knew who'd be succeeding these old dudes. That didn't happen.
For Biden to truly win now, I think he has to do farther and deeper than that. I think he has to assemble his entire cabinet now. Not later.
Granted, they wouldn't be confirmed, but he needs to be able to walk in the door, Day 1, with a fully executable plan and start fixing the country. It's as complicated and simple as that. Honestly, right now, I truly don't have a clue what he thinks he's going to do. And that does not bode well for convention to election.
Like it or not (and I don't), this is where we are now.
I am going on record by saying to all the Bernie deniers, Covid-19 has pushed his would have been presidential agenda to more of a reality. Medical, Education, Banking and Job Protection are all there in way more "socialist" terms than a moderate democrat (or republican) ever dreamed of feared. The joke is, you're all more on board with that shit because now it's affecting you and those you know.
Bernie's agenda, without Bernie, is now firmly on the table.
