I like boring politics.

The media really hates Biden. I can't imagine why.

Biden's "ratings" are by any metric lower than Trump's. Biden isn't a newsmaker when he speaks

Oh, right.
 
2021-12-06 1:51:46 PM  
Biden should have never gotten us out of war.  Both the media and Americans hate that sort of thing.

Is there a political equivalent of Methadone that we can give news media to help wean them off their Trump addiction? This cold turkey thing is giving them the shakes and the sweats.

Quiet competence doesn't sell subscriptions.  Sex, drugs, international intrigue he-said/she-said nonsense and conspiracy junkies do.

Biden is going the way of Carter.  Competent, intelligent, honorable, knowledgeable, and boring.

// That's what I WANT in a president.

I remember when CBS avoided any in-detail discussions about the BBB and then had a poll showing most Americans didn't know what was in the BBB.

Surprise!

He could clear all this up with a few mean tweets. Maybe call some female celebrity a dog or something.

Slate has several farkers as guest contributors, I imagine.

Utterly worthless publication.

You know that's not how this works anymore. I'm pretty sure this is the OG IOKIYAR.

A Democrat would get crucified for calling some female celebrity.

No one is listening to him because the orange turd that tried to overthrow the government is still free and talking about insurrection.  His own Christmas card called himself the President living in the Winter White House.  This turd needs to be flushed with extreme prejudice.

He needs to use the bully pulpit.  He is not using the bully pulpit.  If he used the bully pulpit, then all of these problems would be solved.

That's the beautiful part. When he gets lambasted in the press, he just tweets something even worse. Thanking the KKK for their community spirit or something. Lather rinse repeat.

2021-12-06 2:09:08 PM  
If Joe Biden wanted to be popular with the media, he'd:

-Grab pussy
-Sexualize his kids
-Fall in love with Kim Jong Un
-Brag about infidelity
-Call immigrants "rapists"
-Side with Putin over American intelligence
-Be a worthless fat fark
 
2021-12-06 2:09:13 PM  
But yeah, really cool how the press inherently doesn't like a boring and feckless bust mostly stable government, so they keep giving airtime to sensational lunatics instead. Very good.
 
2021-12-06 2:11:42 PM  
Biden's "ratings" are by any metric lower than Trump's. Biden isn't a newsmaker when he speaks; he doesn't aim to be. His approach is conciliatory; he talks about bipartisanship and refers (with apparent sincerity) to his "Republican friends."


Haha, love it.

In all seriousness though, the Dems should be going ALL OUT right now to save themselves.  Amid flagging popularity (what, 38%) they should be pull out all the stops to get positive results in the polls.

Because if they indeed get washed during the midterms, Joe's last 2 years as a lame duck will be brutal.

Again, that's the problem. The press largely doesn't have any bias towards any particular side. They have a bias towards sensationalism... And Biden is a wholly unremarkable president lacking in any sensation. Literally nothing he does sells stories as well as Trump saying something like "I'm not a racist cannibal, but I can't stand the taste of Puerto Ricans," or whatever.

They should just start calling Republicans traitors to their faces and literally voting to boot traitors like Boebert, Cawthorn, Gosar, and Green (et al) out of the House. When they come back, if Nancy is still in charge, she doesn't have to seat them at all they can sit outside at the traitor table.

No more politeness. Call Ron Johnson a lying weasel to his lying weasel face. Call Boebert a hate-filled treasonweasel. Call Cruz a wimpy beta cuck who kowtowed to the man that denigrated his wife and family.

Well, it's important to KING Manchin and QUEEN Sinema. That way they can pretend to be concerned while cashing big checks.

CNN said Biden's poll numbers mainly dropped with Progressives,Democrats and Democrat leaning Independents.

That isn't a problem with messaging , it is a problem of abdicating your responsibilities because those people are the ones most knowledgeable.

OptimisticCynicism: It is pretty sad how much the media liked working with TFG. I get it was good for business, but they are quite shameless about it


Am I taking crazy pills?  Thenon-Rightwing lunatic press (like CNN and MSNBC and CBS and I assume ABC) was going after Trump ALL DAY EVERY DAY.

They didn't like working with him.

They liked reporting on his farking idiotic tweets and stupid speeches and lies and his outrage du jour.  Or Maddow-style, just vomiting out lie after lie about whatever Russia nonsense was burbling out of the ether.  It worked for her.  Her ratings were at an all time high.  Now without Trump she's a nobody.  Her numbers are in the tank,

And here you geniuses are STILL READING the shiat they are pumping out about him.

I am willing to bet that there are STILL more Trump greenlights than Biden greenlights. Because Trump stories upset the hogs and they click and they post and they go bananas.

If you're looking for a President that will unleash hell on the Republicans, you elected the wrong President.  Biden wants nothing more than to "reach across the aisle to our Republican friends", He's literally said it hundreds of times by now.

If you guys wanted a firebrand who was more likely to use unorthodox methods to push for Democratic victories despite any Republican outcry, it was the guy who was accused of stealing all of his campaign donations, being a white supremacist, and running as a third-party spoiler against Joe Biden if he didn't win the primary nomination.

Nobody listens to him because he's a potato-brained reanimated corpse whose public discourse will give you a headache. You ask why 'nobody listens to him'?  Have you heard the imbecilic nonsense that he spews?   Of course nobody listens to him.

The public will accept a figure head while the party rules by committee, Reagan and the GOP proved that.   Just be better at it.  He's not failing, the person or people making decisions on his behalf are the ones tripping over their own dicks.

Gosh, clicking on a slate article is the same a the ny post - trump worshiping, anti-America rags full of idiots and traitors.

Unless they decide to elevate their news value by posting articles about that scamp bat boy. I just love hearing about how his life is going.

And the people hated Carter so much they punished the country by electing Reagan in a gargantuan landslide.

I don't want Biden to be Carter. I want him to be FDR.
