Biden that has had an approval rating above 50% since taking office, fatboy never went above 50% his entire time in office. That Biden?

The hatred only makes sense when you allow for: Republicans=Nazis

Before the bootlickers and apologists come in and say how wrong that is, remember the metaphor of the obvious Nazi  at the dinner table  eating with 10 non-nazis who are voluntarily sitting there. How many Nazis are there?

This is the essence of Republicans now. It's been heading here since Nixon.

I would love to have the poll ask an open-ended question of those who support and oppose him: describe an action he has taken that contributes to your opinion.

He can't win.

- He's a Democrat so ~40% of the country hates him for that

Then he can't get the Democrats to align with him because:
- He's white
- He's straight
- He's male
- He's old

So, the only people who like him are old, straight, white males who are Democrats and there are not many of them.

Sucks when your "democracy" only allows for two parties, one of which is blatantly fascist, the other one has to contain everyone else.

Some of whom inevitably will hate each other.

Blame the Democrats for being so inclusive, I guess.

With respect, we were never one people.

Americans -influential ones like Ford and Lindbergh, were actively pro Nazi.

We fought a bloody civil war and somehow managed to have the losers gain more power.

We aren't one people. Some of our divides are insurmountable because they're based on racism, sexism, the ambition of power and capitalism. Hell, an afternoon with Fark should provide enough evidence for that realization.

A house divided cannot stand. It's a testament to our "better angels" we managed to bluster along as far as we did.

It's time for a rethink on our American experiment.

Sadly, about 70 million of us are incapable of rational thinking.

Acktcshually...

In TFA, the polls showed that Republicans hated Obama less than they hate Biden.  47% to 62%.

Yeah, Trump outdoes Biden in that poll by 10 whole points.

I'm thinking either Subby didn't really RTFA (shocker) or the numbers just didn't fit into the narrative subby's trying to push.

What you say is true to a certain extent, but it doesn't address the insane war that's going on now. We've always had divergent opinions in this country, but haven't always been at each other's throats like we are now.

Get rid of the big money "Conservative" power brokers who are driving the whole Right Wing propaganda machine that is weaponizing those ignorant people and you'd do a lot to bring us together.

TuckFrump:

there are many reasons to dislike Biden. There is a whole spectrum of politics that continues into what actual liberals and progressives support that leaves Biden a middle of the road centrist, if not what other countries would paint as a conservative .

But that's about policy. That isn't what the haters hate about him, of course.

But we were at each other's throats! Half a million Americans or more died for our Union which was not made more perfect at all for their sacrifice.

If you're not a white man in the USA, especially the rural South, it's likely you felt you've been suppressed, in conflict -if not outright war.

It's seems shocking to white guys because now we're being pulled into it as well.

In our current politics, voters from the party that's out of power intensely oppose the president.

Nice equivalency.  See, one murdered 500,000 Americans and incited a violent coup while another... has some son or something...that might have a laptop ... and might know child-eating aliens in pizza shops... or whatever the fark those morons are believing nowadays.  Totally the same thing.

The thing that drives you crazy is that Biden is a conservative leaving most of Trumps policies in place. He may occasionally talk about doing better things but he really has no interest in it.

Biden is on the side of the police and border patrol.

These morons hate him because he is the wrong party even though their party is getting everything they want. It is so stupid.

That, and the history of the term "Nazi" suggests that that might actually be the most accurate term to describe GQP voters.

eurotrader: Biden that has had an approval rating above 50% since taking office, fatboy never went above 50% his entire time in office. That Biden?


There are two measures.  Approval and Disapproval.  You can also pick ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.  Because of ¯\_(ツ)_/¯, Approval and Disapproval do not add up to 100%.  In fact, ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ can be the largest of the three.  So, having an Approval above 50% doesn't mean you also don't have a high Disapproval.  If  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ is small, A and D will tend to move in lockstep, but if ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ is high, you can have low A and low D.  A and D set an upward bound on each other, but they are essentially decoupled in every other way because of ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

After his DoJ stated that, while they claim to be against the policy allowing religious schools to discriminate against LGBTQ students, they will nonetheless defend the policy allowing religious schools to discriminate against LGBTQ students while claiming that they will be trying to change it.

This was announced during Pride Month.

That statement is Democratic beliefs in a nutshell: "we'll claim to be against something but we'll still do that thing" or "we'll claim to support something but we'll be work to make sure that thing never comes to fruition."

Joe Biden allowing his DoJ to defend discrimination against LGBTQ students is just the final nail in the coffin as far as I'm concerned. Screw him.

/im sure a lot of moderates will come in to defend this
//moderates are just Trump Lite
///the DoJ only added their disapproval of the policy AFTER outrage from the LGBTQ community
