Watched about 15 minutes. Biden is looking pretty shaky. Trump - of course - is lying his ass off on everything.

    I thought Trump was bad but Joe was an absolute disaster. HatetheSwamp!

    Nobody will be accusing Biden of taking debate performance enhancing drugs.

    And, if he was juiced, what's his baseline?

    FYI,

    I turned to Drudge to see his who won the debate poll.

    What I found was a WHO SHOULD REPLACE BIDEN poll.

    "This is more painful than watching a Saw movie." 😬

    Are we now expecting Biden to step aside for health reasons? Even Kamala is looking better.



  9. by Curt_Anderson on June 27, 2024 9:32 pm
    At 81 has anybody ever been criticized or even questioned if they chose to retire? I don't think Biden would need to come up with any excuse. Maybe he can say it's for the good of democracy. It's a lucky thing this debate was so early in the year.

    As disappointed as Democrats might be, I doubt any of them will be switching their vote to Trump. The independents are another matter of course. We will see what the polls indicate soon.

    As bad as Biden was, Trump was firehose of falsehoods. For example, I sincerely doubt Nancy Pelosi "took responsibility" for not calling in the National Guard on January 6th. I am pretty sure she didn't have that authority. If the Speaker did, Kevin McCarthy would have called them in when Marjory Taylor Greene challenged him.

    Trump's lies won't matter as most people won't be checking with the fact-checkers. This is especially true of the undecideds as they are generally low-information voters. But they can see and judge a poor stage performance.

    The NY Post and Republicans uses out of context snippets of the conversation. As you alluded Mitch McConnell had a same authority--actually the same lack of authority--to call in the National Guard.


    (Politifact)Trump: Pelosi said "I take full responsibility for Jan. 6."

    False. That’s not what former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said.

    In a 41-second video taken on Jan. 6, 2021, Pelosi said, "I take responsibility for not having them just prepare for more," referring to U.S. Capitol security. She did not say she took responsibility for the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol attack.

    Records show that Pelosi approved a Jan. 6, 2021, request to seek support from the National Guard and pushed to get National Guard troops to the U.S. Capitol when their deployment was delayed by hours that day.


    (AP)As Speaker of the House, Pelosi does not direct the National Guard. Further, as the Capitol came under attack, she and the Senate Majority leader called for military assistance, including the National Guard.
    [snip]
    The decision on whether to call National Guard troops to the Capitol is made by what is known as the Capitol Police Board, which is made up of the House Sergeant at Arms, the Senate Sergeant at Arms and the Architect of the Capitol. The board decided not to call the guard ahead of the insurrection but did eventually request assistance after the rioting had already begun, and the troops arrived several hours later.

    The House Sergeant at Arms reports to Pelosi and the Senate Sergeant at Arms reported to McConnell, a Republican who was then Senate Majority Leader. There is no evidence that either directed the security officials not to call the guard beforehand, and Hammill said after the insurrection that Pelosi was never informed of such a request.

    Sorry curt- I thought I answered this.
    You are completely correct. You asked where he got the information. That was it.

    So little nancy apparently didn't know her actions if that happens. OR there was some mens rea regarding not moving this up the flagpole to get response folks there. And why she didn't, could be she could blame it on the GOP, which they have done at nauseum.



  17. by oldedude on June 28, 2024 9:52 pm
    Lead- you asked for my "reaction" of the debate. Yes, I did watch it all.... all friggin 12 hours of it.... Oh! it was 90 minutes?

    First. trumpster pushed every button he wanted to get pedojoe dazed and confused.

    pedojoe? I didn't even think there was anything different going on with him. It looked like pedojoe. Mouth gaped open, shoulders slumped, 1000 yard stare, etc. I'll bet they had to change him afterwards. So nothing different that I could see.

    I pity the folks that are "shocked" at his stuff. This is like the little germans figuring out there was a concentration camp and they were burning Jews 3km from them😲. Downwind for the ashes.

    Both of them were inaccurate. That's a given. Those that understand 3rd grade math understand his numbers on the economy are just a lie. Period. It's not how inflation is felt on the American people. I understand that's what they say, and that's their story and they're sticking to it.

    Afghanistan. The egress from Afghan was a complete goat fuck. pedojoe dismissed the authorities on this one, and his handlers proceeded to fuck this sixteen ways from tuesday. pedojoe left thousands there he told he was going to take. And then those that actually looked for people without any help from the state department and got totally fucked in Diego Garcia, rescued people on their own dime. If indy? wants to be pissed at our government, this should be it. I know he doesn't give any fuck for the little brown people, but there it is. With the thousands of terps and others that worked with the coalition forces, were US citizens. Those who say "they could have gotten to Kabul (or anywhere else in the country run by the taliban) is stupid. The taliban now owned the roads, villages, and land these people live on. These are people that sport kill families in their job descriptions. And you are willing to leave these people to be murdered slowly for your fun? You're a dickhead. I wish you to live in hell for the rest of eternity. May you live in pain the rest of your life on earth. No one deserves their death.

    So lead. there is my thoughts on the "debate." pedojoe was no better or worse than usual, trumpster was a little more sedate, and poked that bear several good times. That shook pedojoe for a bit, but the adrenalin caught up with the pedo and he started being able to respond. trumpster laid off, joe went back to his dementia stance. So trumpster laid off. So trumpster has a "feel" for people and how to manipulate the conversation. Like any good leader or CEO.

    Having a "feel" for people and being able to manipulate the conversation is a skill more often associated with phone scammers and other con artists.

    OD,

    Your #15 is pure truth and...

    I pity the folks that are "shocked" at his stuff. This is like the little germans figuring out there was a concentration camp and they were burning Jews 3km from them😲. Downwind for the ashes.

    Exactly. Curt, for one, apparently, genuinely is surprised. But,this is exactly what you and I knew was possible.

    How CNN and MSNBC and NYT and WaPo, et.al. commentators were flummoxed by Joe's performance? As Joe'd whisper, "well anyway." C'mon man. Gimme a break!

    We all have preferences and prejudices that we bring to every moment of our lives. But, holy freakin friggin EFFINcow!

    The Good Germans are prisoners of their subjectivity, apparently.

    We have very close friends who get all their "news" from The TODAY Show and from Lester Holt on NBC Nightly News. They'd have had reason to see Joe at the debate and be surprised... but Curt, po, Indy? Nah.


  20. by Indy! on June 29, 2024 12:11 pm

    I said absolutely nothing about Joe and the debates beforehand.
