(Washington Post)   The GOP is frustrated that nobody is paying any attention to its attempts to define Joe Biden as a doddering, ineffectual, senile loser of a president. It's almost like nobody wants to take them seriously anymore   (washingtonpost.com) divider line

Between the ride we got with T****, then the continued batschittery of Fscker Carlson, Fux Nooz, OAN, then hearing that a handful of Rs are starting a nazi caucus to the tune of America First....

To hearing that the Rs in power purposely obfuscated and bent the CDC's warnings to reduce any impact on the COVID Pandemic, to the moron Governors in Florida, etc. etc..

We're done. We know for a fact they don't have any inkling of how to run anything, except into the ground.

I am loving this "constant communication" strategy of the Biden Administration. This is something Obama Admin could've done better, but didn't. And Trump? LOL

A Republican was speaking?  How rude!

There's no need to repeat it.  Certainly not in polite company.

They're surprised that a WH press secretary is actually informed and can answer questions honestly without picking fights and spouting conspiracy theories.

I think that Fauchi put it the best. You don't have to worry about contradicting the Biden Administration by speaking the truth

Joe Biden is a doddering old man. It's just the GOP are the last goddamn people in the world that should be pointing that out, lol.

Rethuglicans are angry that they can't portray Joe Biden as a mentally deficient, doddering, ineffectual, radical lib.

The problem for the GQP is that Joe Biden isn't scary. Heck trying to make call him is useless because people are like, whatever. Trying to paint him as a radical lefty is like trying to say oatmeal is spicy.
 
2021-04-19 9:58:35 PM  
Like seriously... It almost an annoy cliche to respond to GOP criticism with "uh, where the fark were you over the last five years," but really... They're gonna try and focus on Joe Biden being old and doddering when they spent the last five years treating an overweight narcissist that couldn't spell hamburger as the pinnacle of mental health...?
 
2021-04-19 9:58:35 PM  
Maybe they should all go talk to Walter Mondale about leadership.
 
2021-04-19 9:58:59 PM  
I made a $100 bet with a conservative friend 2 weeks ago . He stated that Biden would not finish his first term due to mental incapacity.  I told him "If he dies of a heart attack or a stroke, I still win right?" He said "yes."

He really thinks Biden is senile. 

Of course the chance of a Conservative actually paying up on a debt...

MattytheMouse: Joe Biden is a doddering old man. It's just the GOP are the last goddamn people in the world that should be pointing that out, lol.


He also saved us from 4 more years of Donny. I'm not saying that THAT is an infinite pass...but it's pretty damn close. He'd have to do something spectacularly bad.

/ I still remember that feeling. The relief. It really was like we'd just destroyed the Second Death Star.

Biden is focused as all creation.  I may not agree with everything he is pushing forward, I do like the attitude and tenacity.

Hell-bent is not always a bad thing.  Especially in the current turn of events.

/something changed in him
//if he dies and leaves the reins in Kamala's hands, I think we will be fine
///still one hell of a battle coming up

Never read comments unless you really want to know how sad some people are.

I've seen what conservatives have done with the national debt. If your friend can't print money, he isn't paying up.

The media/press would LOOOOOOOVE to define Biden in any way the GOP tells them to. THEY'RE fretting that it's not sticking.

Biden's been wise in staying off the visible radar and doing his job. Same with Harris.

After the last 4 years, "do no harm" would be a big improvement. And he doesn't seem to be staffing the executive branch with criminals. I don't believe Maddow has had to put up a wall of shame yet. Or will have to add several panels when the first one runs out of room.

Yet there's a guy who lives just outside of my little town proudly flying a "fark Biden" flag. Joe is so inoffensive I can't imagine how you could gin up that much hatred for the man, even if you don't agree with him politically.

The GOP is a cult at this point. Qnuts aren't the only one suckered into a cult. And there's no convincing many people in a cult.

The GQP was a cult before even Trump showed up. Trump just took the reins and encouraged the farkers to A: worship him and his insanity specifically and B: stop pretending to be anything but an insane death cult.

FTA: "We need to get better at it." But "it's probably harder to attack somebody who is relatable and likable," he added. The party's former No. 2 senator, John Cornyn (Tex.), agreed that "it's always harder to fight against a nice person."

Imagine thinking someone relatable, likeable and thought of as a nice person is someone you need to attack, tear down and oppose at every turn.

I get that it's politics but maybe Republicans should try not being huge assholes if they don't want to be a permanent minority.
 
2021-04-19 10:26:03 PM  
It's not like the billion dollar rw propaganda industry isn't still throwing shiat at the walls these days.

It's more like it isn't sticking as well as it has traditionally.

Why? That's a good question.

Is America smarting up?
Are the Dems specifically figuring it out?
Is it propaganda fatigue?
Or are more and more people starting to recognize it and call it out for what it is?

Regardless, it is a healthy sign in a time of plague.

I like "doddering" it's is a nice word. Like, when I get old I'm OK with being "doddering" -- a gentle-minded soul who means no harm but is still stumbling & farting around the place -- kinda' like now.
 
2021-04-19 10:36:00 PM  
The really funny thing about all of this is that it is increasingly looking like Trump just sunk the GQP's little scam by refusing to go into that silent night so they could rebrand and regroup for 2022.  Not only that, but Trump has given everybody else the chance to see the GQP for what they really are.   At this point the Republicans are basically walking into a party covered in cow shiat and expecting everybody to check their own shoes and nobody is buying it.

Trump farked the GOP very, very well.  And is continuing to do so.  I think the only way out they have is if Wiggy and his family dies in a mysterious plane accident.

Trump's power is all based on illusion.  In a self-fulfilling prophecy, as long as enough people went along with it, enough people went a long with it.  With traditional and social media continually stoking the fires for profit.

When the fell, it fell hard.  Trumpies went from a legitimate threat to a laughingstock overnight.  And once adults had most of the reins of government again, the media that had supported Trump (excluding Murdoch and the batshiat-insane Q stuff) suddenly discovered ethics and dropped him, magnifying the effect.

But you know what?  WAY too many people are still trying to pretend the illusion is real, because they still think it's a path to power.  And the people who feel so smart right now for having outlasted Trump and put an adult in the White House still aren't doing enough to stop those right-wing fascists from having another go.  Every time you let one of them go unchallenged, you're helping the next coup attempt.

*yells at clouds*

I'll be honest, I've spent the last four years raging -- raging, and I've grown tired of the rage -- grown tired of the taste of blood in my throat from screaming so loud. So now that we've got an adult in the room, I'm just taking a few months to relax and enjoy a breather.

Make no mistake, while I come in here making light of things, I take a lot of it very seriously, and I will once again be a happy warrior.

To a very large degree, I think the converse is true.  Trump had no power at all-- the only way to hold approval was to say and do the stupid, horrible things that the idiots wanted him to do.  Every time he stepped off the line they laid out for him, it was "he's not hurting the people he's supposed to" or the like.
 
2021-04-19 11:09:51 PM  
It's been five years since Everything Became A Conspiracy To Make Trump Sad For 5 Minutes and I think even the right wing is starting to get a little self conscious about sounding utterly stupid for more than a decade.
