2. In that statement Biden said he thinks he could still work with "some" of them. I think that's probably true.
When Trump is gone. You will see change. What exactly that change will be is hard to determine. The fog of the cult brainwashing will wear off because the cult leader will be gone. It will also depend on what happens in Senate races in 2020. If repubs get smacked down. Their sweaty orange leader is gone. You may very well see some that work on certain pieces of legislation if they see it in their political interest.

I'm in no way saying any Repubs would actually suddenly do the right thing because it's right. But if it is for their own protection of staying in power, then yes.

This... this is the content I expect.
Also good to see this from Bloomberg Advisor:
"When you get inside Donald Trump’s head, all you’re going to discover that you find there is a putter, a cheeseburger, a porn video, and somebody else’s credit card.”

Makes me sort of want to see those two on the debate stage together...

I think that there is a lot of wishful thinking there.

Trump wasn't in office when McConnell shat on Merrick Garland. Or hey, let's go even further, when he declared that the single most important thing was to make Obama a one-term president.

More troubling is the laying of all the ills at Trump's feet. He is just a symptom of a very serious disorder in the American society and pretending like when he goes away things will suddenly change is wishing it weren't the case.

The absolute write off of Biden by pundits on MSNBC at the moment, before a ballot has been cast is fairly striking.

will be pretty interesting to see results tonight.

I hope the Democrats realize that elections are about winning, not your lofty policy goals.

Strange think happens when you use your own brain to make decisions....I can think Donald Trump is a disgusting human being, a narcissist who deserves to be impeached, yet agree with many of his policies because yes, they have worked. Our economy is better, our trade policies with other countries are better for America, and yes we need judges who make decisions based on what the Constitution says , not their own feelings.

Oh and by the way, his foreign policy stands have caused both North Korea and Iran to back down.

Both Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh have sided with liberal justices on cases, why? Because they think for themselves and are originalists. I won’t hold my breath for any of the liberal justices to break ranks and agree with the more conservative justices simply because they might agree. They would be skewered.

I’m ready for Trump to be removed from office. I would like a President Pence followed by a President Haley very well, thank you.

You can keep Biden, Sanders and Warren.

donald trump and his big brained foreign policy genius got iran to back down from the brink of war last month...

...by unilaterally ripping up a treaty that iran was fully complying with that ensured in writing by independent international oversight that their nuclear program wasn't building weapons.

I tend to think elections are about my innate sense of moral superiority.

JUST IMAGINE Obama behaving like that.

Trump's mental state is very poor. Which only makes the GOP's complicity that much more criminal.

so far entrance polls look like they would be a good thing for Biden or Amy.

Skews older, slightly more on the moderate side than liberal

65 to 35% want someone to beat Trump over someone's specific policies

Almost 16% more female voters.

Think about what you’re saying here.

The “originalists” sided with the more “liberal” judges, hence the others didn’t think for themselves, but you don’t foresee the other judges siding with the partisans who can’t think for themselves? Talk about feelings...

If you're using your brain to think. You would realize that the economy under Trump is no better than it was under Obama. On the same trajectory, actually slightly worse in some areas. Trade has been an absolute disaster. Billions of dollars of higher prices for American consumers, 30 some billion paid out to farmers (Yikes! Socialism!!) to make up slightly for lost income. Even after tariffs are lifted they will have lost the buyers to other markets. They are being decimated across the midwest. Even hog farms in my state TN.

His schoolgirl demeanor with violent dictators, scrapping the Iran deal which was working,. and pretty much getting embarrassed by Kim Jung Un.
It's a shitshow and really pathetic how weak we look in the world now.

So using that brain, you can see that you can have a good economy, good relations with our allies, and proper relations with dictators, and have all of that without having a disgusting narcissist that commits impeachable offenses over and over again.
