Not Biden his time in assembling his “nightmare team”

But Biden will be decent, civil, and coherent when he cages them. So that will make everything OK.

This looks like de ja vu all over again. At least Obamascam had the discretion to wait until after his inauguration to so flagrantly violate all his promises.

I keep thinking of Rahm Emanuel’s comment when confronted with the objections of Obama’s cheated supporters, "What are they going to do-vote Republican?

I wonder what doozies he’ll come up with when he’s Secretary of Transportation.

Is it too early to call for impeachment?

Color me shocked that a Republican Democrat would behave like a Republican.

Finally. After months of columns advocating LOTE politics, a reality check.

“Biden in 2020 is just Obama in 2008 if you aged him 30 years, made him white, and replaced all the hope and change talk with ‘Fuck you. No.’”

Excellent.

Hillary Clinton at the UN?
Whether or not Biden appoints her, things are getting very brazen and very bitter, very fast.
For the record, during her years as secretary of state, 2009 to 2013, Hillary Clinton did as much or more than any predecessor to undermine the authority of the UN and numerous other international institutions. Remember when, in 2011, she swindled the Russians to get Security Council backing for “humanitarian intervention” in Libya, then went on to bomb Tripoli, destroy an entire nation, murder Muammar al–Gaddafi (and then laugh about it)?
… Biden’s army of foreign-policy transition advisers — 2,000 in number — is chock-a-block with warmongers, Russophobes, Sinophobes, Iranophobes, exceptionalists, puppets of apartheid Israel, humanitarian interventionists, and others promising nothing but trouble. We’ve known this for some time.

Hey, Mr. VBNMW with the “the perfect is the enemy of the good” and “now is not the time to vote for a principled candidate” and “you really can’t say there’s no difference between the two parties.”

You’re saving these articles–right?

Looks like Trump (or at the least, a marginally slightly lessor evil Trump) gets a second term after all, …iMAGAine that, who’da thunk it?!

I didn’t see this one coming. Or did I?
Frankly, the LOTE concept never had an appeal for me. Why would it, for a Progressive…?

Let’s be real.
The left has been pretending for 4 years now that Obama/Biden were total softies on immigration. His nick name was the Deporter in Chief, for cracks sake, he separated families.
Obama/Biden built the damn cages Trump has been using.

I’m kinda wondering if perhaps the newly elected fuehrer will pardon tRump and make him Secretary of State. I’m sure the new Secretary will carefully educate his “boss” and tell him what to do. I think we’re getting pretty close to a replay of 1930’s Germany, but with much bigger and more powerful weapons and greatly expanded and intrusive “security.”
