NYTimes Doing What They Do
  • NYT after endorsing a Dem for 70 years:

    Maybe 81 is too old to be president?

    "Moderates":

    You're exactly the same as trump supporters and you always have been.

    It's still insane how similar the far right of both parties are acting these days.

  • Rainbows and ponies...
  • He doesn't need to legalize.

    He just needs the DEA to remove it from the scheduling system. He could order them to do that. And replace them if they refused.

    Biden doesn't want to do it. So he pretends the presidency is weak and he has no power over federal agencies Then tells us if trump is president he's dangerous because he'd be in charge of all the federal agencies, and would be able to replace anyone who disagreed with him.

    I don't know if it's normal neoliberal bullshit, but it's a really bad look for Biden to always be contradicting himself like that.

  • After Biden's debate performance, new national NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll finds the presidential race is unchanged
  • Then what the fuck were you even trying to say:

    Do those people want a Democratic president but believe Trump would be better than Kamala? Do they believe the Republican platform (ie end democracy and reform as an authoritarian theocracy) is better than the Democratic platform on any particular issue?

  • After Biden's debate performance, new national NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll finds the presidential race is unchanged
  • Ultimately, I think we’d get very similar policy out of a Biden term 2 or Harris/Newsome/Whitmer term 1, so I don’t really care who it is so long as they can beat Trump,

    Right...

    And lots of people closer to Biden than either of us will ever be are saying he can't beat trump.

    And the more the public sees him. The less voters want him.

    He is historically unpopular, and this was his first press conference in almost a year. There just isn't a path for Biden to improve, or he'd have taken it by now. It's not like this election came out of nowhere, the best campaign plan him and his team could come up with. Was to fucking hide him until it was too late to change candidates.

    In 2024, this is peak Biden, there's no where to go but down.

  • After Biden's debate performance, new national NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll finds the presidential race is unchanged
  • You want to go convince 100 million Americans?

    Or run someone they're willing to vote for so we stop trump?

    At this point it legitimately doesn't matter why Biden is so unpopular, or even why he's unable to change that even with billions of dollars.

    What matters is winning the election

  • After Biden's debate performance, new national NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll finds the presidential race is unchanged
  • Let's compare it to a foot race

    Biden is wearing all the latest gear. Has been training for a year, and has an entire support team.

    He runs it in a minute

    Which is about the same as these five people we pulled off the street who didn't know they were running 2 seconds ago. They didn't even stop to stretch, just ran

    We have 4 months to the big race.

    Why stick with the person who "topped out" is just as good as people who legitimately haven't even tried?

    Wouldn't it make more sense to pick one and train them up for the next four months?

    Like, you get that right? Biden isn't turning this around. The best he can do is maintain.

  • Biden stands firm on critical night - but gaffes mar fightback
  • This was your first comment...

    “Tired old man does things any human would do if they were tired, is he fit for office? Never mind all the gaffs that previous republican presidents have said or done, including the other guy, who said let’s inject sunlight directly into the veins, or more recently went on an incoherent rant in the middle of a rally about airports, and is also a convicted felon and rapist. Let’s focus on word fumbles”

    I mean, if you’re getting the microscope out to dissect this candidate, might as throw the other one on there as well. But then the press wouldn’t be fair and honest to their god king and overlord, his holy orangness of poo.

    Your response to an article about Biden, was "what about trump tho?"

  • After Biden's debate performance, new national NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll finds the presidential race is unchanged
  • Yes, and I also saw that the top 3rd party choices in the poll are not on the ballot in most battleground states

    ....

    I mean. That's literally not true.

    But I've already given you the sources that show that.

    I led you to the water homie, I can't make you drink it.

  • Biden stands firm on critical night - but gaffes mar fightback
  • I’m not playing whataboutism games

    I mean. That's literally what you're doing...

    If someone mentions Biden and not trump, you say

    What about trump

    And you've just been arguing for Everytime someone mentions Biden, to talk about how bad trump is

    That is literally what "what about ism" is...

    It's literally in the name dawg, what aren't you understanding about this?

  • After Biden's debate performance, new national NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll finds the presidential race is unchanged
  • The main third party candidates are in the majority of battleground states tho...

    https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2024/us/politics/presidential-candidates-third-party-independent.html

    The states that actually matter.

    What aren't you understanding about this?

    I mean. That's not even all the states, they have months to get signatures to increase that

    And moving forward with Biden is helping them get signatures.

    There is just sooooo much you're not thinking of. And you seem actively resistant to learning about any of it.

  • Biden stands firm on critical night - but gaffes mar fightback
  • So everytime someone talks about Biden, they also have to talk about trump?

    What about 3rd party? Do we have to talk about them too?

    What about other options? Should we talk about the next best option for every party? Why just them? Why not the top 10 potential replacements for each party? Top 100?

    Why aren't we talking about the domestic price of mangos on Tuesdays?

    telling only one side in a story is not an accurate representation of history.

    Insisting every time someone mentions Biden they also talk about trump just doesn't make any sense.

    If that's honestly what you believe, then you're never going to accomplish anything. Everytime you're a part of a conversation you're just going to detract from the conversation.

    So if that's what you're about. We're done here.

  • Biden stands firm on critical night - but gaffes mar fightback
  • It’s about information. Giving people information is never a waste of time

    This is Trump's third election... Four years ago, he was literally the fucking president...

    And you think people don't know who he is?

    That we need to constantly waste time reminding Dem voters who trump is?

  • Biden stands firm on critical night - but gaffes mar fightback
  • I can say good things about Biden. I think Biden’s positions on most issues (except Israel) and his administration are fine.

    Hey, if we just ignore the ongoing genocide Biden unequivocally supports and went around Congress to supply munitions to...

    His policy is "fine"!

    /s

    Like, bruh...

    The only thing you specifically mentioned was the bad shit

    You literally didn't say a single good thing about Biden, even when you apparently just put a non-zero amount of thought into coming up with a single good thing....

    That doesn't concern you at all about the quality of candidate?
