Biden will be dead within months of election if it goes their way, and Harris will be president.

There are tons of ways - besides just waiting - that the dems could
push him out and get the first female President of color. Their
problem now is to keep him looking reasonably functional long enough
to get him elected.
Biden\'s DNC speech clocked in at under 30 min and he seemed competent
enough, surely no worse than Reagan in his second term.

The teleprompter seemed like a good idea, if they could get him to
read the right parts coherently. It must be frustrating to be part of
his handler team. I expect some great books about that some day.
\"I say we should outlaw teleprompters … for anybody running for
president.” - Trump, 2016

I counted about 25 teleprompter-turns in the first half of Trump\'s RNC
address before I lost count (thought Obama was the teleprompter-prez),
maybe he doesn\'t figure running for President is what he\'s doing, though.

He did start ad-libbing heavily about 2/3rds of the way through the very
ponderous late-night assault on insomnia, it did clock in at under 90
minutes but felt like three times that. It was well past 3/4ths of the
audience\'s bedtime when he finished.

Some consider brevity to be a virtue.

All sorts of things get revealed if you wave a $10 million book
advance in front of some people. Some of those things may even be
true.

There were hundreds of ways the GOP could have pushed George HW Bush out
and made Dan Quayle the first Jack Kennedy.

What teleprompter? I bet they were reading it to him <slowly> in his earpiece.

They need to start doing the same with Kamala in her phony interviews, she\'s pathetic.

** You cannot get \"caught\" telling folk what they WANT to hear.

The population isn\'t uniform enough that everybody wants to hear exactly the same story.
** The ones likely to vote for you are on all the same bus - the others do not matter cos they are being lied to by and different poly.

The lies are mainly in the form of fake promises ( won\'t get carried out or are useless anyhow ) and fake analyses of the current situation. Like using fake panics and fake slurs on the opposition.

Massive amounts of that going on the US right now.
Democracy is failing badly there.

It had been thought that Trump\'s (lack of) Covid response was simply the
usual incompetence, turns out from the Woodward tapes it was actually
malice. What did he know and when did he know it? Seems he knew quite a
lot and believed it himself but didn\'t see fit to reveal that in public.

We all make typo\'s, in the same way that we all makes speech errors. It\'s worth exploiting them for comic effect, but they don\'t signify anything interesting - even when you collect a lot of them and them into a slanderous video.

Somebody like you, who posts completely idiotic misapprehensions more or less non-stop, won\'t be aware of that. You aren\'t aware of much at all, and your own idiocy isn\'t obvious to you.

Yes, the explicit CCP goal is to control the World. The entire World should be controlled by him.

Competent? Did you know that he did not finish primary school? His only qualification is the \"second generation little pink\". He managed to alienate every countries around him, as well as far away in America and Europe.

Biden said he will reverse tariffs and sanctions once elected.
They are doing more damage to the US economy than they are to the Chinese economy.
That\'s the result of previous decades, and exactly the reason why we should not continue this way.

I don\'t recall who it was that said, success in politics is all about sincerity. If you can fake that, you\'ve got it made.

Xi does seem to have had a lot of on-the-job training. I\'ve done quite a bit of that, if not in areas where Xi is competent.

Dream on. Australia loves selling stuff to China. They try to lean on us by buying some stuff - more expensively - from other suppliers, but we just sell it to other people until they see sense. There are a lot of countries to trade with, and few of them are run by people as silly about control as Xi or Trump.

Flyguy does loves posting utterly fatuous nonsense.

If there is any extreme left in the USA, they aren\'t anywhere near close enough to the people who run the Democratic Party to have any influence on Biden.

Flyguy suffers from the usual right-wing idiot problem, which sees anybody who doesn\'t support their extremist right-wing idiocy as extreme left.

The rational middle ground doesn\'t register with them at all.

Getting wound up about the debates before anything is set up is equally idiotic.
