Will Biden be a good President?

Not looking too good for Joe before the inauguration. With his son and brother's DOJ investigation, how long can Joe last is the real question Fascinating, that it took this long for most in the media to report this...

Considering it is only his family members who are under investigation, it is looking far better than his predecessor who was paying off porn stars, the head of a company being charged with fraud, being caught on camera admitting to sexual assault, and rather strong evidence of being a Russian informant all before election day.

Re: Will Biden be a good President?

Biden's presidency will be like eating Riz Casimir: a bit of a bland dish that you choose only because you don't want to eat a schnitzel anymore.

Your problem is that for the foreseeable future Trump is going to make them all look normal, reasonable people by comparison.

Re: Will Biden be a good President?

He'll benefit from being Trump's successor and having the vaccine available, but he'll also face the recession and probable tax increases.
But a war with Iran will distract from that.

Re: Will Biden be a good President?

Where is the poll, terri?

I don't think he will be, unfortunately. But I don't think he will be the worst, either. He was nominated so other interest groups would overpower him no matter what his opinions and projects are, seems to me. So to answer what I think of him is irrelevant..what I think about who's behind the riz casimir would be more relevant. It's a lot bigger than a stake.

His performance depends entirely on Georgia.
Hunter Biden is a diversion concocted by MAGA Morons.

Having a president that will use the provided pen instead of his sharpie and manages to sign on the right line on an important trade agreement (so that Trudeau doesnt have to hide it) is the bar we are looking at... (love it though how the Mexican president tries to make Trudeau rub it in... and the Canadian keeps his cool)

Maybe, maybe not. But that's irrelevant for Joe Biden's performance. Hunter Biden is a private individual, not employed by the government.

I'm not sure why some people think Biden is "bland." Is that what it's come to? Do Presidents have to have ridiculous, over-the-top personalities and be entertaining like celebrities now, or else they are considered "bland?" Is that how it is in Europe?

So what about Biden makes him "bland," exactly? That he's not throwing tantrums or treating his role as a politician as though he's the star of a reality television show? That he's not screaming "socialism!" ???

Trump was a one off hiccup, so it's not a reasonable comparison.
Compare him to Obama, Clinton, Bush snr and jnr, Reagan, Macron, Merkel, Trudeau, Boris, Duda, Sanchez etc, etc.
Most leaders have some sort of persona.

Re: Will Biden be a good President?

The bar is currently not just on the floor, but way down in the cellar. It would be almost impossible to do worse than what they currently have. I'm just looking forward to Trumpelstiltskin having to face real-life consequences for his fever dream decisions and vile rhetoric. Listening to Joe is almost soothing and although I don't agree with everything him and Kamala stand for, it is certainly a nice prospect to have two calm, educated, mature adults in charge of the big red button.
