The Biden Presidency

I don't think the dictators needed any USA fig leaf to use these lines.

Equally, any non-democratic 'People's Republic' can cheerfully point to the U.S, using graphic images of the rolling clusterfeck that was Jan 6 assault on Washington DC and say to their enslaved people:

' THIS is what their promised Democracy looks like ...is this REALLY what you want here ? '

eg one of many similar reports :

American politics is huge, how a new President is chosen is even bigger and I have no idea how it all works, however, strip away all the politics and the money and have a look at Biden the man. It's ridiculous, really. The man is like an OAP with serious problems. He, in my mind, is in no fit state to drive a motor vehicle, let alone be the leader of the free world.

Watch his speeches, it's embarrassing, it's like shoving your senile Grandad behind the microphone to make a 'thank you speech' for his birthday presents.

There must be some serious reason as to why he is in the hot seat, but I really cannot see it. Who is really pushing the buttons and pulling the strings? It's quite bizzare.

Thre is no way he can be seen as a serious Statesman, there is no resilience, no powerful speeches, no toughness, just a weak old man.

I hate to say it, but the demands of the job will kill him. Poor sod.

That's if he makes it through the inauguration. We have every possible scenario from a trouble free spectale to a full on assassination.
I'm going for a shouty demostration that is kept well away from the podium. Two fatal shootings and a few dozen arrests.
I wonder what odds William Hill will give me?

I don't think his demise will be violent, it'll be stress related through the demands of the job and his feebleness in age.

I am still staggered that the Democrats thought Biden was the best choice against Trump (obviously they know lots,lots more than me) - I expected it to be Saunders who would compete, at least he looked moderatly healthy. Like you, i think the job (or something/one) will kill him quite early on and Harris will end up as Boss.

Seriously? If you discount the maybe 10 million or so diehard MAGA true-believers, 60-something million people were so terrified at the thought of voting for a Democrat that they actually voted for Donald Trump.
Putting up someone who actually calls himself a socialist was never going to go well.

Biden won due to Sanders' advanced age.
Biden is 78.
Sanders is 79.

. From many many miles away i just did not think he would A) get the Democrate nomination, nor win. I thought the Dems would pick someone younger. Perhaps the choice of VP was the really clever bit, it will be interesting to watch the next few weeks/months

Yes, i know/knew the ages, just thought he looked healthier. Obviously the younger ones chasing the nomination did not have enough rich backers, but hey ho

So basically meet the new boss same as the old boss (well slightly less orange)

He is in the hot seat because in a very short space of time America will have it's first black female president. Who wouldn't get in on a straight vote.

I'm still staggered that the last 2 POTUS elections have been Hillary vs Donald followed by Donald vs Jo. You'd think with over 320m people to choose from, they could do better. Then again, who are we to talk. In 2017 we had May vs Corbyn and we were a whisker away from Corbyn winning!

I think he was an acceptable figure to a lot of people for the Presidency and basically he's all they had as well, but to the the likes of Nancy Pelosi he's serving a purpose. He's getting rid of Trump and he can be manipulated to do what they want done and possibly get him to retire due to health reasons a little later.

If Biden does retire early in his presidency the Democrats might find to their surprise that President Kamala Harris doesn't want to play ball their way. If anything Kamala Harris is a pretty smart lady and she knows how to play the system.

And that @Steamboat, is how you carry out a proper coup d‘etat.

How does that make you feel hmm? Angry? Frustrated? Bitter?

How will the people in your state feel about a black, female, unelected President? Unhappy? Betrayed? Impotent with rage?

Personally I will laugh like a drain when it happens.

Confused, I think she is a chameleon honestly. Her skin tone seems to change colours depending on her audience.
