Has the makings of a fine President to be.
You cannot be serious Marton! His mental acuity/decline is in question and has been for quite some time. Google Biden interrogating Thomas Sowell back in the day regarding the Bork nomination.

Actually, here you go:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tFW60srYRzs

Take a look at Biden's mental acuity and sharpness and compare and contrast that to today.

I give Biden 6 months before he recuses himself as President. No way he can handle the strain of Presidency combined with the investigations into his son Hunter's issues notwithstanding his brother's issues and his possible involvement.

I find the timing of the media's attention to Hunter poignant. This info was out there last January with Peter Schweitzer's book. But NOW, they/media are covering it? Hmmm...

And let's remember that Kamilla went nowhere in her campaign for the Presidential nomination. And for those who think everyone loves Kamilla, why did her Presidential campaign fail so abysmally?

Unsettling times for the US in my view...

To be fair, he wasn't very sharp back then, either.

No matter who is in the White House, that’s going to be true.

Not sure if Urs Max's post above is directed toward me, as I have him on my ignore list and was only able to see his comment because it had been quoted.

But regarding Biden's compassion and his role in the The Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994, the bill aimed to reduce violent crime, as violent crime had been dramatically rising in the US at the time. So one could see it as the bill having more compassion for the victims and for people in general (i.e. the desire to have less people become the victim of violent crime).
Come on. This bill was intended to place the Clinton democrats in the center in order to become/remain electable. The bill contributed to the build out of a prison system that per capita incarcerates more people than any other in the world. This was further perverted by making solitary confinement an acceptable way of housing.

But to blame all of this on Biden personally is ridiculous. The guy has been in the Senate since the late 70s, so in a way is so "systemic" that you could praise/blame him for the contemporary history of the US.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

The deposed king still ranting, now attacking the attorney general Barr and spreading debunked election conspiracy theories that were debunked by Barr.

Trump could still come out of this well by concentrating his final days on curbing the spread of Covid-19 and greasing the wheels of the vaccine distribution.

I agree it is all his fault. Now that we've agreed that can we get back to the topic of this thread?

Yeah, ok. He’s been a shit President. No leadership. Sure, he facilitated the development of the vaccine with money, but denied the science, pushed unscientific theories, pissed on science. He got all excited about the stock market while loads of people lost their jobs, and became infected with covid. He could have taken a leadership position to facilitate relief for millions of US citizens. He’s leaving the US a massive steaming pile of shit for no matter who ends up in the WH.

He’s a Putz. And you may think Biden is infirm and frail, but he has a better understanding of leadership and more compassion in his toenail than the current occupant of the WH.


Just my opinion. Feel free to disagree, I give no shits.

Terrifisch:

I'd say Kamala Harris did very well with her campaign....she's now Vice President.

As for Biden, he may be old and frail, but I believe his cabinet will provide the vitality and progressive thinking that will lead the US back on track.

This. And I watch him speak. He stutters, stuff is slow sometimes, but I don’t think he is all that infirm.

Some do, some don’t. More and more are referring to themselves as first nations. Taking their clue from those other Americans living in Canada.

Most actually refer to themselves as Lakota, Navajo, Shoshone etc. and not as whatever term the woke people currently consider appropriate.

Germany funded the development of Pfizer’s COVID vaccine—not U.S.’s Operation Warp Speed.

Everyone who voted for 1994 crime bill bears responsibility for the result. Not solely of course, but the responsibility is undisputably there. Given his key role, Biden's responsibility is obviously quite a bit larger than other's.

That makes him part of the problems BLM is said to protest against and runs counter to the general claim that he's part of the solution for them. Yet the MSM, and the clear majority on here along them, seem to think he's the messiah incarnate.

Yep. Trump granted $2 billion for doses of the vaccine, but it was Germany that funded its development.

Nah, he's got lots of flaws. Bit too risk averse. Of course, he probably recognises he's part of the problem. Is it possible to try to rectify those problems or is it all so black and white.

Anyway, once he's into office, the MSM will be not be so full of praise.It's the American way.
