If only this were true:
Boston, MA - President Donald Trump's personal policy of not wearing masks while visiting various facilities came crashing into a wall of common sense, organized resistance, and angry children today. The commander-in-chief was in Boston, Massachusetts, and visiting the world-renowned Boston...www.patheos.com
He's probably one of these fools.You are actually being critical about Joe Biden being angry? When you are supporting that combustible train wreck of uncontrolled hostility that is Donald Trump? What is wrong with you? Are you in some sort of alternate universe?
Repeat that all you want. Our correspondence is on record for anyone to refer to and they can all make their own evaluations based on that. I have nothing more to add (or subtract) from what I have said previously.Of course it's you. Though no, you are not losing it. You never had it.
See, everything is relativised to Trump.There has been a great deal of discussion about Biden on another forum with many righties saying his words were "proof" of racism. Then it is pointed out that he apologized whereas tRUMP did not do so for saying Mexicans were rapists and that Haiti, El Salvador, and African countries were "shithole" nations. It will be interesting to see how discussion of this issue evolves.
Of course nobody cares - it's like I said to another poster about Joe Biden's latest comments likely being ignored - people have slightly more important things to worry about.Ah you Trump haters are certainly consistent if nothing else. Filling these pages daily with toxic venom of hate regurgitating the MSM recounting of the various real or even unreal sins of Pres Trump. All the while you ignore or even show no interest in what has come to light recently of the undeniable corrupt and venial actions of Obama officials in trying their damnest to sabotage the Trump administration. At least the outgoing Clinton WH staffers only destroyed White House computers as a prank against the incoming Bush administration. But I guess the Obama administration are a different kettle of fish in going the extra mile in trying to destroy a duly elected President..
There's been a lot of critical thinking. And part of it is a reevaluation of the power of establishment media--what you would call "establishment conspiracy." Which was very much against Sanders. Has MSM invited anyone on just to say that Biden makes their skin crawl or that Putin is picking his candidate, yet? No? Anyway, they still appear to have massive pull with the majority of voters over 50 years of age. It would be stupid to pretend that that pull doesn't exist.Of course nobody cares - it's like I said to another poster about Joe Biden's latest comments likely being ignored - people have slightly more important things to worry about.
I understand why people would would rather deal with conspiracies than reality. You see it on the left as well as the right. "Sleepy" Joe Biden ran a primary campaign with poor fundraising, minimal infrastructure, comedy slogans, a history of "interesting" statements and behaviour and no exciting policy positions I'm aware of. So when he won many of Bernie's supporters chalked it up to an Establishment Conspiracy Which is obviously a much more comfortable thought than the idea Bernie's campaign was the biggest miss at an open goal in the history of American socialism. Yep circle the wagons folks. let's not engage in too much critical thinking. And Obama conspiracies are of course the comfort blanket for Fox News. They also have absolutely no relevance to the problems people currently face.And this bizarre obsession with Obama could present further problems. The latest attempt by the administration and GOP state attorneys to cripple the Affordable Care Act could be heard before the Supreme Court in November, which would be great timing - if you're a Democrat . If The GOP has any thoughts about actually winning the next election maybe they should start thinking about their alternatives to the ACA while messing with the coverage of 22 million plus Americans during a global pandemic. But as I say I understand why people would rather focus on conspiracies than reality.It really is much much easier.
This is pretty much spot on. Agree about Sanders not in it to win it, but frankly I doubt attacking Biden more vociferously would have made the difference. I am more mad how he's acting right now. He's pretty much throwing all the work since 2016 in the toilet bin so he doesn't upset the freaks in the DNC. This is his moment to put a clear different policy than what the two corrupt parties are suggesting, and he's not organizing anything which is making the progressive left look particularly weak and useless.There's been a lot of critical thinking.

Not remotely the only reason for the loss, but an important one. Another is that Sanders wouldn't call out Biden on his long history of made-up accomplishments. Biden has a unique ability to lie to people's faces. But Sanders was too worried about offending his DC friends and stood by and hoped the press would do their jobs.
And the thing about plagiarising another politician's stump speech is that he plagiarised the part about that candidate's life story, which was not close to Biden's. Really takes some amazing chutzpah. But it was a good story that would help him out on the trail, so he told it anyway. And then, in this campaign, he went back to lying about this "history" of civil rights activism in front of largely black audiences. Even tho he stated in his autobiography that he wasn't involved in the civil rights movement.
Had Sanders done any of this it would be all you heard about in the MSM for weeks. He didn't so you got weeks of fretting over "Bernie Bros" on twitter instead. Turns out random twitter posts are very, very important in a primary. At least this time. But for Biden, a little story here or there, mostly explaining why it's not really important what Biden says, then they can pretend it didn't happen. And, again, a lot of that was Sanders's fault for fighting like he was in a sparring match and not a street-fight. Had he pressed the issue in debates and his own stump speech then that would've forced the MSM to cover Biden's history in some copacity. Even just to defend him they would have to talk about it. But Sanders tied one hand behind his back and hoped the ref would look out for him. If the ref's kicking you in the balls there's no point complaining to him about the score. Ultimately Sanders wasn't willing to play to win. He was more concerned with his senate career and maintaining those relationships.
But, Biden would always have been hard to beat. He was the VP of the last Dem president, that alone made him nearly a shoo-in in the primary. V.P.s have won their party's nomination since 1950. Biden didn't even staff offices in several states he won. And he didn't need to. Once the party leaders decided who their pick was and closed ranks, the race was over. And while the great majority of Dem voters support things like M4A by a very wide margin, they still voted for someone who promises to veto it should it reach his desk. It's very hard to overcome that level of voter inertia.
There's a lot to think about after this primary, including how much electoral politics should be a focus. I mean, while Sanders was in the lead we had a spat of discussions about how it was really the party insiders who should decide the nominee anyway. So that will have to be taken under consideration as well. But what the Left won't do is spend the next 4 years focused on how our loss was all Russia's fault.
