The key phrase there is "at the convention"

Well this was more or less the entire basis of his last movie, so at least he's consistent

Perhaps this is more like Trump’s Chernobyl.

We’re about to find out the cost of 16,241 lies.

Why Joe is doing well now and will do well against Trump

https://twitter.com/JohnJHarwood/sta...09243276406785

why does Biden lead Trump comfortably in new Quinnipiac national poll?

how voters compare their personal qualities:

better at handling a crisis?
Biden 56%, Trump 40%

is he honest?
Biden 51% yes, Trump 33% yes

does he care about average Americans?
Biden 59% yes, Trump 43% yes

I can't believe 43% thought Trump cares about average Americans. He's good at fooling and manipulating some people, I'll give him that.

My personal opinion is that he doesn't give a damn about any average Americans. He thinks we're fools and losers. He just wants enough votes from enough of us to keep his giant ego and tiny hands in the WH.

If anything, he cares more now than he ever did before.

Which is still very, very little. But, it was impressive to see how he got elected, knowing fine well he was acting out of self with minimal relation to the people.

Sociopaths don't feel anything for anyone other than themselves. So those 43% are wrong. That's not an opinion. That is fact.
He wouldn't shed a tear if his kids died in a plane crash. He would be thankful he wasn't flying with them.

the difference there is that hurricane maria happened to puerto rico which many mainland citizens don't/barely consider as part of america.

once the bodies start piling up in atlanta and chicago and denver, people will have a much harder time ignoring it.

Sounds like black and liberal people to me, not sure his voters will see the urgency.

Watching Biden interview

I'm getting a feeling that Stacey Abrams is the choice.

Lawrence asked if the 4 women that campaigned for president would be good because they would be ready to be president. He said yes, but then made sure to say that other women, at the state level also would be good. Made a point of saying African American women.
Then asked if they should be battle tested on the presidential debate stage. He said yes, but then again said that there are women that have had their own successful debates on the state level and also have had national exposure.

I'd say it's Harris or Abrams. But I lean Abrams

Good to see today that Joe Biden's economic plan is to hand the keys over to Wall Street based on his leaked list of Cabinet choices. Mike Bloomberg as head of the World Bank. Jamie Dimon running the Treasury!

Also, he just said on television now that he would veto Medicare for All if it passed the House and Senate.

I saw the clip, in which he danced around the question and/or doesn't really remember what the bill actually entails because he's somehow more senile than Donald Trump at this point. I charitably interpreted it as political double talk in which he winked at "I'm out on this," but I'll accept your correction that he just didn't answer the question at all.

On one hand - too bad it took this much for banker guy to change. Otoh, glad he has.

i forgot the Az debate is tomorrow night.

And, oh, when did you lose your mom? How wonderful that you could make her laugh. You have nothing to apologize for.
(been 12 yrs for me for my highly creative, compassionate, smart, fun loving mom. Still think of her just about every day).
