As essentially just another political windsock, Joe Biden is not what this country needs. It needs someone who has been remarkably consistent throughout his public life.

The d-party apologists around here will chalk this up as ByDone being pragmatic.

Which encapsulates why the d-party is losing voters – it has no moral compass outside of poll-tested spinelessness, and the public effin knows it. Blue dogs in swing districts (which swing right back to the Repubs every few years) hold more sway in the d-party than representatives from the most progressive districts in the country, because pragmatism, incrementalism, jingoism, and the fact that it’s more lucrative to be a rudderless ship drifting where the winds of big money push it instead of actually solving problems.

ByeDone won’t survive another three months. If you want to focus on the d-party strategy for 2020, look at the Obama/Harris/Jeffries/Booker model: Useless centrists proud of RomneyCare, militarized police departments, Ilhan Omar-bashing, and a $12/hour(ish) minimum wage.

Centrism is the bane of the Democratic party, can’t we nominate a real progressive for once in a very very long time.

This article is Exactly right.

Joe Biden is an insane psychopathic WARMONGER.

Biden is a dangerous politician who has no problem supporting the bombing of innocent civilians and would continue destroying any hope of peace in the Middle East.

Under a Biden administration we would continue wreaking havoc on any Middle East country that objects to Israels mistreatment of the Palestinians.

This is so vintage Biden, using his power to control the conversation by excluding alternate points of view or anyone who would challenge his position or embarrass him. Just ask Anita Hill. The guy is the worst kind of political slug, but, of course, that’s just the kind of man the status quo wants.
