    That was a huge mistake (including red line in the sand here). And there were others but I never once wondered whose bidding he was doing or where his loyalty lay. Not the case with this President.

    Well if you know for a fact that Biden made no promises to them then I will defer to your inside knowledge.

    Get real. Of course I don't claim to know what was said between Biden, Warren and Sanders. But that doesn't mean your claim makes sense.

    1) I think he will give in a little bit, but once in office, we all know the far left agenda will go nowhere and it'll be a compromise

    2) If you are referring to some missed words, that is normal with aging, but I doubt he has cognitive issues. He also suffered from stuttering as a child, and that never really leaves you. I've seen more concerning slurring of words and redirection of thoughts with Trump.

    If we can make it through 4 years of Trump, I'll love going through 4 years of Biden, even if he doesn't get much done. I look at him like a placeholder to keep our country from suffering even more damage from the Trump presidency.I really long for the days where I wake up and don't hear jack shizzle about another controversy or possible corruption with the WH. I think though that Biden will do a good job and NOT lie on a daily basis. We need someone to bring us back together and for the right wing crazies to go back under their rocks.

    Reading comprehension would be your friend on this. I can’t believe it have to write this. I made no claim
    If you read my original post I said “did he cut a deal with the far left to push their agenda, or will he be his own man”. What kind of CLAIM is that.

    Been trying for awhile to figure you out by your posts. It now appears you are basically a Republican (definitely Reagan) that just doesn't like Trump personally. I can understand this because he is mostly what people say about him, pompous, narcissistic, and talks to much. Because the left leaning media, as well as the democrats, have been on him since day one he has become even more so. However, he has governed pretty well and his decisions have basically been spot on with Judges, immigration, China, Iran deal, America first, and many more. Electing a democrat now would strengthen them further toward a socialist's agenda in my opinion, let alone Biden being an empty suit with advancing dementia. My opinion of course, but can you see yourself holding your nose for 4 more years? Maybe flipping the house again?

    Obviously wha
    Obviously what we post is mostly speculation. I think he has cognitive issues, I don’t know if it’s enough to hinder his performance. The next few months we will find out. I also think he won’t be the nominee. Just my opinion on this. I also think Trump misses his past life and I wouldn’t be surprised if something changes on hid front also

    “Smugness” while giving dear leader a pass.

    President Obama will go down in top half of potus in history. Trump will go down as bottom 3. Ever. He is awful.

    I just happen to be taking a class online through Harvard on how our brain ages. Of course this may or may not apply to Biden, but slipping up with a word here or there is perfectly normal and has nothing to do with cognitive issues. I'm not finished with the class yet, so there may be more information I have not gone over.

    Simple. It's tribalism. When one side gets nasty and personal in its criticism of the person in power, the other side rallies around their leader, no matter how incompetent or inept he may be. It happened with GWB, it happened with Obama, and now its happening with Trump. Three incompetent (or at least, below average) presidents, and three times the tribe rallied around them and denied the truth that was staring them in the face.

    Intelligence without wisdom is often, if not usually, useless. And wisdom comes from experience. Some of our most educated and professorial presidents have also been some of our worst and most gullible. Woodrow Wilson (professor, Princeton), Jimmy Carter (nuclear engineer), and Barack Obama (Harvard Law School, known as "the Pontificator") were all considered very well-educated; they were idealistic yet gullible, indecisive presidents who often couldn't see the forest for the trees. FDR went to Harvard, but was an average student. Reagan went to tiny Eureka College and was also an average student (Wikipedia describes him as an "indifferent" student).

    So true, not to mention the not so subtle cheap shot by JMDZ.

    Looks like Biden may be losing the black vote:

    Black Americans are in an abusive relationship with the Democratic party

    I don't think many black people will vote for Trump. But many will stay home and not vote if they find the candidates distasteful.

    He didn't say that Trump's government was functional. He just implied that Trump was calling the shots. And I tend to think that is accurate. No one else could be dumb enough to come up with some of the things that Trump comes up with, and he is firing people left and right who don't toe his version of the party line.

    There is one political organization that has treated African-Americans far worse than the Democratic Party. It's the modern Republican Party that has become the successor to pre-Civil Rights era Dixiecrats. Beside constantly opposing social programs that tend to benefit minorities including African-Americans disproportionately for at least the last 10 years the Republicans have been doing their best to nullify the Voting Rights Act of 1965 by implementing an agenda of voter suppression.

    Worse than Clinton? I find that hard to believe. At least Obama was a good person, Clinton didn't even have that going for him.

    Worse than Carter? He presided over an absolute trainwreck.
