Our next President, Joe Biden 2021

With a bad economy, no way to work, people will vote Democratic, the party that will take care of them.

He may be old but it's about the Democratic direction, advisors and team he puts in place.

The only thing that bothers me, is whether the Trump Administration is passing over a country that is so completely fucked-up, that it’s still a mess four years later and people vote the Republicans back in, because they forget.

People were obviously too stupid to remember that Obama inherited an economic collapse; two wars; and Osama bin Ladin; and left things in pretty good shape. Why would they ever vote another Republican for a generation?

If Joe wants to win the top spot he needs to seriously consider this guy as his VP candidate. He's young, very likeable and certainly knowledgeable. He's not a female but he IS a member of a minority and may be a great drawing card for Joe.

The only way Joe can win is to put a minority on the ballot with him. It's got to be either Stacy, Pete, or Elizabeth.

by Anonymousreply 405/18/2020

R3 You are correct. Pete could do it for Joe. I worry that Joe can't pull this off with Stacy, Kamala, or Elizabeth. He NEVER should have opened his mouth about promising a woman VP this early in the game. Joe is an idiot and I'll vote for him only to get Trump out of office, not because I believe in the guy. He's everybody's senile uncle. Imagine him in a couple years...

Joe spoke to Stephen Colbert for almost an hour last night.

Fuck it, just install Barack Obama as his veep and fuck the Repugs in their fucking inbred faces!

There's nothing in the Constitution forbidding Obama from seeking office as the vice president, right? Another 8 years of Biden/Obama!!!

What an absurdly stupid thing to say, R3/R5. Pete Buttigieg would be an albatross around Biden's neck and he would absolutely lose the election.

It's amazing and shocking how utterly stupid and out of touch some of you are.

I second that BIG TIME!

by Anonymousreply 9Last Friday at 7:06 AM

I'm cautiously optimistic. It's quite possible that Trump's reality show presidency has jumped the shark and won't be renewed. To those concerned about Biden's many deficiencies as a candidate, I call your attention to the Senate race in which incumbent John Ashcroft lost to a dead guy.

It will be a woman. It just will. I know people will keep throwing out male names for VP, but it doesn't matter. It will be a woman.

I'm actually torn between Elizabeth Warren whom I like better and Kamala Harris who might be better for the ticket.

It's a tough call.

by Anonymousreply 12Last Friday at 7:22 AM

Does anyone know when he will actually announce?

by Anonymousreply 13Last Friday at 7:42 AM

I agree. I love Pete and feel he has a whole political career in his future. But for this he's just too young, not young in a good way to contrast elderly Joe. Just too inexperienced. All wrong. Plus he ends up being another white guy.

by Anonymousreply 14Last Friday at 7:42 AM

Fat chance, OP. In the midst of chaos, people want familiarity, and are more likely to vote for the president that was in office when it started, not a new one who will probably introduce new policies. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but that's the reality.

by Anonymousreply 15Last Friday at 7:53 AM

Joe has said it will be a woman. He cannot go back on that now. It would be an awful example of unreliability.

I’m thinking it might be the Governor of Michigan. Although Joe is already leading there, it would put MI in his pocket and he can then focus on the other states.

Similarly, I also like Val Demings of FL. Is she popular with the whole state? Could she get a net of 100,000 more Floridians to get out to vote Democratic? She would energize the Black vote nationally, too. But if she could put a lock on Florida, then Trump is finished. It will be an embarrassing rejection of Trumpism. Trump might have to counter by dropping Pence and putting his own Floridian on the ticket, if he can find one.

Joe needs to hold the states Hillary won, and pickup three or so, such as MI, WI, and PA. This is just not going to be hard for him. He will likely get those three states, plus AZ, and maybe NC and FL. I keep hearing WI is still competitive, but I simply cannot imagine a battleground state tipping into the Red this election.

Joe should be thinking of campaigning more for the Senators he wants to support his initiatives. Maybe throwing a lot of time and money on that woman opposing Mitch McConnell?

by Anonymousreply 16Last Friday at 8:05 AM

R15, I don’t agree that people want familiarity. I think they want change. But even so, do you think Joe isn’t “familiar”? You seem to be thinking that people are really damn stupid.

by Anonymousreply 17Last Friday at 8:07 AM

They ought to open the convention and nominate someone else to beat Trump. Biden is a total fuck up.

by Anonymousreply 18Last Friday at 8:11 AM

R3, Pete won't be VP. I really like him but he won't. But he WILL have a position in the Biden administration for sure. I'm sure we haven't seen the last of him. He may end up being president one day.

by Anonymousreply 19Last Friday at 8:12 AM

Your post is inane r15. Nobody wants more chaos in the midst of chaos, and that's all Trump promises.

by Anonymousreply 20Last Friday at 8:39 AM

actually I shouldn't say "no people." His dingbat cult loves this chaos, but most people don't.

by Anonymousreply 21Last Friday at 8:42 AM

R17 Well, they voted for Trump the first time, didn't they?

R20 Wrong. There are probably many people who may view an entirely new administration as injecting more chaos to an already chaotic situation. It's only human nature. It stands to reason that humans crave familiarity, even if all evidence says otherwise.

by Anonymousreply 22Last Friday at 9:03 AM

R22, you’re just stringing together words with no evidence or historical pattern to back it up. You’re writing nonsense.

This is so true.

R23 Historical pattern? You know nothing of human nature. That's why you think Biden will win.

by Anonymousreply 25Last Friday at 1:44 PM

In the past presidential candidates always looked for a VP who would balance the ticket geographically. I suspect old Joe will pick someone from the Great Lake states or the South.

Can I use a time machine and vote for young Biden instead

by Anonymousreply 27Last Friday at 1:57 PM

not sure that still matters, so much as balancing by race, gender, and ideology, and also age, but who knows, r26. He might take that into consideration as well.

by Anonymousreply 28Last Friday at 1:58 PM

R25, you think “human nature“ brings people to vote to re-elect awful politicians? No., this is not a thing. It never has been. What’s wrong with you?

It's white anger. America is still predominately white and whites vote, especially older ones. The Democratic Party is now a minority party. While the demographics of the county are changing, it still isn't in the left's favor. Trump taps right into white anger and wins because of it. Biden and other Democrats are in a tough spot because they risk alienating minority voters by outreaching to Trump's base, whites. Whites want someone to stop telling them they're privileged and don't have it hard. Minorities don't want to hear that. The country has always been polarized, but thanks to social media, it's more polarized than ever before. The far left of the Democratic party has turned off millions of voters. The far left is very hostile to bio women, Jews, and gays. Those groups used to be the base of the Democratic party. They've left in droves, feeling pushed out. The same happened in the UK with Labour. Trump is seen as a spokesperson for those turned off in the country, even if they don't agree with him. That's why you have idiots like Roseanne Barr supporting him, Roseanne who was one of the biggest lefties in the country. In the end I won't be surprised to see Trump being sworn in for a second term come January 2021. I pray for a miracle but I know how angry people are in this country and I've seen the country re-elect Bush Jr twice, Reagan twice, and hand the keys to Congress to Republicans the same year they shut it down.

If Trump does get re-elected, I have no doubt a Democrat will win in 2024, Obama style. Who that person will be, I have no idea.
