    With Trump, his mouth, and his Twitter, you know damn well he would have been rubbing himself in his own ****. That’s what he does.

    He gets raked over the coals if he put Amy as the VP candidate...too many of the SJW's would come out and whine that persons of color were once again being ignored, never mind that Abrams is not qualified for the slot nor is Harris. It WOULD, however, provide yet another textbook example of the left eating its own...

    I'll tell you what I told Trump supporters three years ago. If you have to bring up your opponent to defend your own or your own side's actions, then your defense is weak. Blatant one-sidedness, absurd fear-mongering, and licking the nutsack of one of the worst regimes of the last 100 years just to spite a President you don't like is indefensible - period.

    I corrected it. Predictive text sometimes blows.

    Have y'all noticed they never let Biden stand and field press questions?
    It just doesnt happen. The last few times spoke publicly, he was on a time limit.
    They tried hiding Hillary the last few months in 2016, but that did not work. And we are still many more months away.
    It will be interesting to see if they try to restrict or minimize the debates. Maybe let him sit for them.

    So, the wife and I were discussing the VP pick for Biden since he has stated that he will choose a female VP.

    As some have stated here that Biden would be a puppet for the DNC and Democrat power players, we both agreed that it might be a ploy that Biden, if elected, would eventually resign within two years of being elected. Thus, achieving the first female president.

    Why would he resign...you say? Well, again we both agree on this, he in our opinion is showing signs of dementia and it would be an easy way to explain his resignation as president.

    For the record, I lean more Republican and my wife is more Democratic but she told me that if Bernie won the nomination that she would have voted for Trump.

    Food for thought...

    Some Dems are all excited about Cuomo turning out to be a potential candidate based on him getting daily national airtime.

    ^So far all I've heard him say amounts to bashing Trump - just like all the other candidates.

    If Cuomo started appearing on tv in a dress, he’d be a shoe in for VP.

    But seriously folks, where is Joe anyway?
    I think he has had one short appearance on video for the last 8 days
    Our media is so lame to just let him disappear like this at this moment

    You were right, I did see a video of him criticizing people
    But what I saw was not live. I dont know if there was something else with him appearing live and taking questions

    Cuomo is appearing like a strong confident leader in a crisis, which is gonna matter more than all the corrupt and incompetent things he's been involved in prior to this time, sadly.{

    There were other differences too. There wasn't government ownership of the means of production and distribution near to the extent socialism would advocate for. Plenty of private capitalistic enterprises were allowed to persist as long as they didn't fall afoul of party rules.

    Generally, yes, but here's what I see happening a fair amount.

    1) Alice criticizes Other-Team Candidate for something that she thought was good when Same-Team Candidate did it.

    2) Bob says "Uhh Alice, if your person did it and you thought it was good, then you shouldn't consider it bad now, can we get some consistency please?"

    3) Alice "Whataboutism!!!!!"

    The Nazi government managed corporations. They were still privately owned in theory, but practically the CEO took directions from the Nazi government. It was like Darth Vader's deal with Lando Calrissian. It is basically what American Progressives want.

    That kind of says it all. His projected role is the front man for the people behind the scenes who will actually run things if he gets elected.

    I see two types of VP choices:

    1. A competent executive/administrator type from somewhere in the middle or middle-left.

    2. A political bone throw to the identity politics crowd.

    In case Joe wins, then passes away in office, we'd better hope he goes with option 1. A competent (even minimally competent) chief executive is necessary for the country to function properly.

    Believe me, I understand. However, there is an intellectually honest way to discuss an issue. It's fair to talk about the other side and to point out their flaws and inconsistencies. However, that is an offensive weapon, not a defensive one. You should be able to defend your own position entirely on its own merit and lead with that defense. If you want to rip on the other side's hypocrisy afterwards, that's fine, but it shouldn't be allowed to work as a diversion from your own flaws. In fact, they aren't even relevant.
