Of course Trump is winning.

If Biden is the best the Democrats have got, they deserve to lose.

Michelle would be the best candidate, for many reasons, including that she could win,

Long-term senator types aren't likeable whatever their party; that is, not likeable to regular folks and regular voters. Obama was the exception that proves the rule because he was a short-term senator.

Who wants Biden or McConnell or any other old fart senator as president?

Cuomo would be great because governors are action-oriented and close to the people.

If Stacey Abrams is going to be VP and then president, maybe she should be at the top of the ticket to begin with.

The NY Times profile highlighted her dynamism.

Energy and enthusiasm will be needed to win.

Cuomo is the most confidence-inspiring leader in a long time: very hands-on, alert, and with a nice human touch.

He'd be a dynamite candidate.

Also, he'd know how to handle himself in the debates. New Yorker vs. New Yorker would be a fair matchup.

All the unemployed, those owning failed business, healthcare workers without PPE, those that lost money in stovk market, those who lost family to covid19 will blame those in power (trump). Trump will lose.

Anonymous said...

1222, should lose, yes, but he won last time because of the opposition candidate's weaknesses and it might be the same thing again running against a stuttering old fart senator.

Time to bring in Cuomo or Harris or Warren. (*They can reshape their platform as in Warren's case easily.)

Old and dazed is risky, imho.

Other than allowing 5,000 elderly die in nursing homes by forcing New York nursing homes to accept corona virus patients from hospitals that infected current residents, Cuomo would be a great pick for the Democrats.

Cuomo's biggest accomplishment was auctioning off the stockpile of ventilators five years ago that were stored for future pandemics.

Well that, and the fact, the State of New York has 50% of all U.S. corona virus deaths as a result of Cuomo's lack of planning and leadership.

You Dems seem to think that the rest of the country gives 2 shits if a bunch of New Yorkers' die.
Answer: They don't.
In fact, many would prefer it.

10:25 did putting 'and yet' at the beginning help your point? you forgot 'weird' at the end. Just be like Radish, make weird your pseudonym, and sign it at the end if your signature presence is so important to you. -Weird

2020 will be defined as the year of 25% unemployment, business, farm and personal bankruptcies rising dramatically, lines around the block at food pantries, to date $4 trillion of new federal debt this year, and well over 100,000 preventable deaths.

Terrible environment for a reelection campaign. No amount of distraction changes that.

All Trump offers is more empty slogans riffing on transitions to MAGA, with no plans or even knowledge about how to fix this mess he created.

It's over folks.

Trump only needs to win the majority of 538 people. He can never win the popular vote. Most of the country can obviously see he is an incompetent con man who has the ability to coral all the idiots into one pen and feed them dumb shit.

And the much anticipated and hyped "Obamagate" has just been shot to pieces by FACTS contained in just-declassified e-mails!

Nice try, GOP, but it blew up in your face.

Touting a list of name of persons requesting information from the NSA doesn't equate to any of them revealing information in an FBI Report.

Ain't reality a Bitch, tinfoil hatters?

But keep making excuses for Bonespur's failures, after all, being unable to get anything other than a tax cut for the Wealthy done for two years when Republicans controlled the Executive, Legislative and Judicial Branches must have been the Democrats fault, right?
