    Uh huh. Suuuuuure. Maybe Biden should cut taxes while he runs up his massive deficits. That'll make him no longer "transformational."

    I apologize if my use of the term "underachiever" sparked resentment in you. It was rather insensitive on my part. ;)

    That would make him a Republican. Well, provided he also saddled us with a financial crisis or war. No good Republican can leave office without leaving calamity behind.

    I love it that a lib has to start a thread proclaiming that the Democratic President of the United States said that socialism is bad as if that's supposed to be some major kind of concession from him worthy of note. Says a lot about the Democratic party these days. o_O

    It's worthy of note only because the right and rather successfully, too, has consistently portrayed the Democratic Party as supportive of the Cuban and Venezuelan and Soviet versions of "socialism". It's notable because Biden actually had the balls to debunk the false narrative.

    I would say he'll forget he said this in 2024, but he probably already has.

    You’re right to an extent. Denouncing communism should be easy, whether D or R.

    Now do Donald Trump being asked to denounce White Nationalist Nazi’s: “Stand back, and stand by, you very fine gentleman”. Oops.

    The guy who had the second most votes from Democrats as their presidential nominee was a big proponent of Cuba's and the Soviet Union's systems of governement. And the "Squad", who have been called the "future of the Democratic Party" by none other than the Chairman of the Democratic Party, are unabashed socialists.

    And saying Biden has "the balls" to say socialism is a bad system only compounds exactly what I said. Why should it "take balls" to call out the ills of socialism and communism? o_O

    Face it. The Democrats are America's de facto socialist party now.

    Really? You don't think it has anything to do with the exceptional times we are living in? When was the last global pandemic that brought every economy on earth to its knees? Not in your lifetime. Your post is disingenuous because you clearly know this.

    This is a joke, right? Other than Helsinki, where he literally sided with a foreign adversary, these were probably two of the lower moments of the Trump Presidency.

    After Charlottesville, he referred to the people at the rally (actual neo-Nazi’s) as “very fine people”. He waffled when asked to condemn the pro-confederates.

    At one of the 2020 debates, when asked what he would say to groups like the proud boys. His response: “stand back and stand by”.

    The guy just couldn’t help but play footsies with criminal white nationalists. This was a theme since he first started campaigning, and probably before that. Why do you think so many showed up to “fight for Trump” on 1/6? For the corporate tax cut and environmental deregulation? LMAO.
