Biden - He’s not a whiny biotch
There are a lot of moderate conservatives willing to vote for a lukewarm democrat in order to get rid of Trump. A fired up liberal on the ticket pushes them back into Trump’s arms. They need the most boring bland candidates possible so that those conservatives aren’t afraid of letting them have four years in charge. A Bernie or Warren or Abrams (or AOC) would give Trump another four years.
As to be expected.
I am shocked that they didn't even, apparently, read the thing before they approved it as the "new" platform. Just one more example of not paying attention to details!
When the head of the party won’t read the Presidential Daily Brief, this is what that kind of leadership produces.
Biden is the lukewarm Democrat. The VP needs to be somebody dynamic. Abrams is out of the running. Warren is too old. Bernie isn't in consideration. It sounds like it's coming down to Harris, Demings, Rice, and Bottoms, most likely Harris, Rice, or Demings.
The inability to change it is the result of splitting off part of the convention to Jax.
Trump may be stuck with awkwardly worded GOP platform
From the platform:
"At another point, the platform notes that “the current Administration has abandoned America’s friends and rewarded its enemies.”"
Agree with the electoral calculus, generally. Not sold we are in that spot, every election is different. I find Joe’s glaringly positive attribute to be Not Trump. Otherwise I have no love.
Given that, what do you think of Harris?
The VP choice has not mattered in many consecutive presidential elections. In the booth, voters come down to a binary choice for president only.
I just noticed the Trex hands in the silhouette. Bravo!
That's generally true, but I think it could be different this time, especially with representation coming into play.
My vote is for someone smart enough and competent enough to take the reins from Biden when the time comes. To me, that's Rice.
McCain would have been a serious challenge to Obama without the woman who could see Russia from her house. McCain wanted Lieberman. He didn't get his way. He might very well have won if they'd left things alone.
Obviously, we can't turn back time and know, but I think McCain was buggered no matter what he did. The country would be in a better place if he picked Lieberman, but he still would have lost. Obama was just too strong of a candidate, and the economy melting down under Bush doomed McCain.
McCain lost when the republican party forced him into a conservative platform that was against his ideals. He would have lost without republican support if he had maintained his ideal platform.
Essentially, he lost the moment he won the primary.
McCain would have lost to "generic Democrat" most likely, and that wasn't a reflection on him, it was all thanks to W.
W was probably at least a 5 point handicap to any R candidate in that election, and frankly it was amazing it was even that close. Just shows how dug in some people are to political identities.
A part of it was that the RNC convention is still in Charlotte, and because of the way the rules are setup, the platform has to be decided there. But all the people who need to be involved in passing the platform will be at Trump’s acceptance speech in Jacksonville, so the party wasn’t going to be able to modify the platform under their existing rules. Now that people have brought attention to how idiotic their platform is for 2020 I’m guessing they will revise the rules to allow for changing the platform.
