Go Joe!
 
2020-09-17 8:55:58 PM  
He's not crazy. Not a TV star, but sane
 
2020-09-17 8:56:10 PM  
The event begins at 8 p.m. on CNN and is expected to last for an hour.

So it's already over?

It's a big farkin' deal.

I'll watch if Biden quits claiming that his healthcare plan that leaves out 10 million people is somehow "universal healthcare." Otherwise, just like with Trump, I already know his policy positions.

Good.

He's doing well. Compared to Trump he's s saintly genius.

Seems stable too.

Wait, he's making sense. I'm somewhat unfamiliar with that at this point.
I'm trying to rearrange my brain cells so I can get my head around a simple manifestation of a more common sense. It's like evolution before my very eyes.
I'm trying hard to understand what he's saying. It's making too much sense

"Why aren't you Bernie Sanders? Why can't you be more like Bernie Sanders?"
 
2020-09-17 9:01:39 PM  
Let me sum up the coverage:

MSNBC:"Biden looks leagues more qualified to be president than Trump. He answered the questions and seemed human and caring to the concerns of the voters."
Fox news:"everything Biden said was communist lies and propaganda. He wants to raise your taxes, sniff your children's hair, and force you to have a gender fluidity operation to negate your objectively awesome manliness."
CNN:"Biden spoke, but so did Trump, so both sides obviously deserve fair consideration. Biden said 1 million when the correct number is 1.3 million, so both sides are bad. You make the choice."
 
2020-09-17 9:01:51 PM  
"Firstly, I would not try to throw into question the legitimacy of the election like this President, and the people around him have done," Biden said in CNN's town hall. "Number 2, I would make sure that the post office, and I would move quickly to get states to agree, would open ballots before the actual deadline, that night. Because people have to mail-in. Number 3, what I am doing now, and I continue to do, is try very hard to get as many poll workers available... to make sure that we have early voting, we have same day registration and we are in a position where you are automatically registered when you become 18 years of age."

As opposed to Trump's plan to kill off all the people that are mean to him?

Apparently, you aren't watching it live, right now. Virtually everyone gets CNN unless they're cord cutters.

Some guy's angsty screed on Medium isn't an article.

Wait, you want evidence?  Trumper's don't do evidence.
 
2020-09-17 9:10:05 PM  
Like, yes, please beat Trump, but...

Is it important? Like actually important, or horse-race important, so not important whatsoever?

/ Seriously, should I tune in?
 
2020-09-17 9:10:07 PM  
Joe knows his manure.
 
2020-09-17 9:11:26 PM  
You gotta admire Biden's courage here. He's fielding unrehearsed question from random voters from both parties. Does one person here think the stammering yam would risk that on live TV?

You just know that Fox is going to rip Joe for spending 30 seconds talking about chicken poop.
 
2020-09-17 9:13:15 PM  
I'm ambivalent about this particular *answer*, but it's a compelling story about bipartisanship.  Not sure it works the way he is describing it anymore though.
 
2020-09-17 9:14:57 PM  
"I don't rip the cord"?

Is that what kids call it now?
 
2020-09-17 9:15:28 PM  
Biden's absolutely best feature is that he's not Trump.

Meh.. Cut the chord.  Burn the bridge.  Whatever.  The point was made.

It doesn't. He's been told it doesn't work that way anymore. Nevertheless, he persists.

The fracking question has me worried.  Fracking is dangerous and should be stopped immediately.   Arguing for it to continue and against cold turkey stoppage sounds like almost the argument for continuation of every horrible industry the US is engaged in from slavery to cigs to poisonous materials production near populated areas. Its always "we cant just stop! we need like say, 30 years, before we milked every last drop of profi....i mean before we can fully transition away from it!". I dunno man, reading Biden's plan, most of his proposals hinge around non-existent tech and investments that will require bi-partisan support to pass and implement along with regulatory reforms in agencies that are now either completely obliterated or captured by their respective industries.  This cant be a white glove approach and Biden needs to be channeling the spirit of Teddy Roosevelt through a seance to bring the heat.

Yes!  As a lifelong Democrat, I saw this post and immediately realized everything is somehow Nancy Pelosi's fault.  I'm voting Trump! MAGA! Walkaway!
