Minutes after Trump said he wouldn’t run and hide, he runs and hides.

I don't care what anybody says. Trump's trials won't help his poll numbers.

We don’t really know Joe Biden or Donald Trump. Maybe we should listen to those who do.

“I tried with Senator Grassley back in the 1980s to freeze all government spending, including Social Security, including everything,” Biden said in 1995.

And after a Republican wave swept Congress in 1994, Biden’s support for cutting Social Security, and his general advocacy for budget austerity, made him a leading combatant in the centrist-wing battle against the party’s retreating liberals in the 1980s and ’90s.

“When I argued that we should freeze federal spending, I meant Social Security as well,” he told the Senate in 1995. “I meant Medicare and Medicaid. I meant veterans’ benefits. I meant every single solitary thing in the government. And I not only tried it once, I tried it twice, I tried it a third time, and I tried it a fourth time.” (A freeze would have reduced the amount that would be paid out, cutting the program’s benefit.)


In 023, Joe Biden is a brainless mouthpiece for the progressive Swamp. But, back in the day, when Dems had moderates and pb was one of them, pb agreed with Joe...and supported him:

“One of the things my political advisers say to me, is, whoa, don’t touch that third rail,” Biden told Tim Russert on “Meet the Press,” while running for president in 2007.

One of Ronald Reagan’s first major moves as president was to implement a mammoth tax cut, tilted toward the wealthy, and to increase defense spending. Biden, a Delaware senator at the time, supported both moves. The heightened spending and reduced revenue focused public attention on the debt and deficit, giving fuel to a push for a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution.

In November 1995, he again reminded the public of his deficit hawkery. “I am a Democrat that voted for the constitutional amendment to balance the budget. I have introduced on four occasions — four occasions — entire plans to balance a budget,” he said on the Senate floor. “I tried with Senator Grassley back in the 1980s to freeze all government spending, including Social Security, including everything.”


Good, lengthy article.

Thing is: This is what pb's been talking about when he accuses Jill and the Flatulent Fool's string pullers of elder abuse.

There was a time that Joe Biden was a politician with character and courage. Not no more. Now, he's simply a marionette.

BTW, watch the Bernie video. Brainless Joe is such a liar.

Evil.

Sad.

    But by your own admission you supported Biden when he was abusing elders.

    Huh, Donna?

    You said you supported Biden back then but not now, using his stances on Social Security as an example of why.

    Biden's past stance on SS is one of the reasons he didn't even make my top 5 candidates back in 2020. I think Bernie Sanders has influenced him greatly since then.

    Back in the day, pb was of the Joe Lieberman, Joe Biden and, except the sexual predator thing, Bubba Clinton wing of the Dems. He particularly admired Biden for his unabashed Roman Catholic orthodoxy and his pro-life stance in the face of Dem politically correct pressure. And, in the 80s and 90s...when there was still time...he was with Biden in his call for innovation in adapting Social to deal with the trauma of the aging of Baby Boomers.

    pb remained a Dem as long as there was a wing of the party for him to identify with. If, in 020, Tulsi had gained some traction, if she'd been nominated, he'd'a been hard pressed to vote for OrangeMan whom he despises.
