2020: delay any covid response in order to drive up deaths in blue areas

It really sucks that the only things the GOP can criticize democrats over are either shiat they invented out of thin are, or disasters that they themselves are responsible for, because to criticize anything else would require too much introspection and self-awareness.

Far easier than coming up with actual useful policies that are popular with the people and help them in any way.

I made this analogy to the fam not too long ago...Trump, at the top of a hill, pushed a giant boulder (COVID) down toward a town (representing his inaction and gross mismanagement), and Biden, newly elected, is at the bottom of the hill holding his hands out, trying to stop the now-runaway boulder.

'It's all Biden's fault!'  say all the trumpers.

> "Joe Biden and the Democrats ran an entire campaign based on a dishonest promise that they alone could shut down a worldwide pandemic. They failed, and voters are punishing them accordingly," Mike Berg, a spokesperson for the National Republican Congressional Committee, said.

So the reason Repubs wont get vaxed is to make Biden a failure at fixing COVID?

Obviously. They've been saying they were gonna since he got sworn in.

Came to post this.  The GOP strategy hasn't changed for decades, because it works.  The public is ignorant and stupid.

do you know who could stop the pandemic in America?  Insurance companies.

Money is the only thing idiots can understand.  We have surcharges for smokers, time for antivaxxers.

The vaccine is free*.  The new pill pfizer has coming out?  It would not surprise me if it is $1000 a dose.


FTA: "A more productive strategy, [Repubs] argue, would have been making a full-throated push for COVID treatments and other approaches that the unvaccinated might have been more willing to accept."

Please list what treatments and other approaches would the unvaccinated been more willing to accept?  we will wait.

Oh, and while we are waiting may I point out another point FTA:
"As of mid-September, 90% of adult Democrats had been vaccinated, compared with 58% of adult Republicans."

Please, take your time...

It's worse than this

It's this: "We have fought tooth and nail to prevent you from following the advice of non partisan doctors and scientists to advance our own parties politics but now that people are dying again we are ignoring all of that and blaming you for not being successful in defeating our lawsuits"
 
2021-11-25 5:32:22 PM  
It'd sure be great if the press at some point asked them, "Okay, what isn't Biden doing to end the pandemic that you want him to do? Be specific."

He forced them to intentionally cause mass death by being elected as a Democratic President. That bastard.

Yes. Insurers should do that.

But don't count on it changing many anti-vaxxer minds. They'll just conclude that the insurers are part of the conspiracy.

The only thing that does change their minds about the vaccine is contracting a lethal case of COVID---if even that.

Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: 2020: delay any covid response in order to drive up deaths in blue areas

2021: delay any covid response in order to drive up blame for the president


How are they going to win 2024 if all their unvaccinated supporters have died by then? Not a very good plan.

The virus isn't as deadly as most perceive.  If anything these idiots are going to bankrupt the medical system with ongoing chronic (but not immediately fatal) medical problems.

Worse... They're actively implementing things that will make it worse (florida Tennessee and texas)... And actively preventing biden from implementing his ideas by suing him.

It causes things to be worse and everyone (even Democrats) keep blaming biden.  Politically it's working very well.
 
2021-11-25 5:56:07 PM  
And if we were over the pandemic by now they'd say that it wasn't that big of a deal in the first place which just proves that mask and vaccine mandates weren't necessary.

I remember one politician running on the campaign "I alone can fix it", but I don't think it was Biden

It's the pot calling the kettle black, but McCarthy isn't wrong. Biden suppressed reporting of breakthrough infections, ignored both Pfizer and ModeRNA when they told him that their vaccines needed boosters at the respective 3 and 6 months marks, and allowed his media team-not scientists-to have final say on his mitigation policies.

OnlyVaxers are just as bad as antivaxers in my book.  A spreader by another name is a spreader all the same.  Gotta wonder how many farkers suffered breakthrough Infections as a consequence of believing Biden's bullshiat.

Vaccinated or not, the only things that have reliably prevented Delta are N95s and Regen-CoV.

Forget about the Covid.  Gas prices are through the roof!  Maybe if Hunter wasn't sell his million dollar paintings to Saudi royalty, they wouldn't have to pass the costs on to us, the simple, massive pickup driving republicans.

"....he sold himself to voters as the guy who can make a difference in the fight against COVID",

Biden's mistake was promising to do anything about it, obviously.

But it was worse than that. Had he just said that the plan was to ride it out without any major interventions and then stuck to it, at least it would have shown a strategy. But mixed in with all the denial were claims that the administration was taking amazing steps to deal with the pandemic. Which was it? Your intervention was needed or go away like a miracle. Like most other things from TFG, there was no overall plan. Everything seemed so week to week. I don't know, like a TV guy trying to continuously come up with new plot lines.


/ I suspect he stayed out of most of the military issues because they are far less tolerant of plans du jour
// Other projects that were tough and required sustained focus (e.g. replacing the ACA) just faded away
/// Covid just wouldn't do the same
