George Clooney: I love Joe Biden but he now needs to fuck off and die.

"The one battle he cannot win is the fight against time." Ouch. He just hosted the single largest fundraiser for any Democratic candidate too.

Moreover, WHAT IS THE ALTERNATIVE? If any one of these people came up with a plan and names and money and structure on how to make this happen in 117 day then I wouldn't be so pessimistic. But these statements from people like Clooney expressing a desire untethered from reality makes no sense.

Between Nancy this morning & now Clooney, I'm guessing that the Dem Overlords and Big Donors told Joe to step aside this past week, but he doubled down instead, so now they're trotting out the Respected Elders and High Profile Celebs to kindly, but publicly push aside Joe. Clooney didn't do this as a whim - people put him up to it because they did the math & realized Joe can't win. As painful as this is, they need to do it now & do it quickly before it's too late. For his own sake, I wish Joe would take the high ground and speak to the country about the dire threat of Trump, rather than his (or Jill's) personal desire to dig in

R30 it would not be difficult at all if Biden chose to withdraw his candidacy and chose to lift up Kamala Harris in his place.

But the current dynamic is impossible. Biden is 100% defiant and 100% determined to stay in. So the options are either

(A) shut up about it (which most of them are doing) or

(B) try to force him out against his will. That will fail, and it could further damage Biden's chances of winning, which are already looking sad.

Clooney is crazy if the dismisses the chaos of an open convention with "it'll be messy." Messy? No. Shit. The one thing we absolutely have to avoid is an open convention. Those are brutal and the wounds do not heal. People don't all come together in unity at then end singing Kumbaya. And I guaranfuckingtee you the Russian trolls, and the agents of chaos the Republicans pay, will definitely be there to divide and disrupt and piss all over the Democratic convention. The Republican operatives have been working hard to pick off enough Democrats to disrupt the convention. They are hoping for an insurgency. We really cannot afford an open convention.

His predictions of losing the House are wrong headed. A Presidential election is really 50 statewide elections. In every state we have a Democratic Party and grassroots organizers. Their tasked with helping get Democratic members of Congress and the Senate and the legislatures elected. The House doesn't need Anyone but their state organizations to get them elected. The Senate was always going to be rough. People have stars in their eyes thinking they can beat Rick Scott in Florida, Ted Cruz in Texas. I'd love it if it happened, but I don't see how.

Right now Sherrod Brown in Ohio has a rough race. We have Ohio, Wisconsin, Michigan, Nevada and MAryland. We will lose West Virginia. It's gone. So we need to flip at least one seat to keep what we have. If we lose in Maryland and/or Ohio, the Senate is gone. We need the Senate to deal with the Supreme Court. We cannot afford a Republican Senate Majority. So put some resources into it. Work hard. There are plenty of high profile Dems who can make visits and help raise money. The Obamas, Hillary, Bill, and any number of others. Clooney is good for one thing. Raising money. If he is so worried about the Senate and the House tell him to give them money because they need it. Clooney does a lot of good work internationally, and so does his wife. But he needs to stay out of Presidential politics.

Mostly agree R53. Our only total duds in my lifetime were Mondale and Dukakis and Kerry. Gore and Hillary Clinton were like "Qualifications 10, Charisma 2."

After watching Bill Clinton and Barack Obama both win two terms, and Biden circa 2024 failing and Hillary failed and Kerry, Gore, Dukakis and Mondale before that... it is clear to me that for Democrats, charisma and talent as a public communicator is EVERYTHING. We are fucked for 2024 but in 2028, assuming America still has real democratic elections, we have got to put up a nominee with charisma and strong communication skills. Regardless of gender, race, or age.

If you keep score across both parties, it's not like the GOP has been slaughtering us over the decades. The record shows an even balance of strong and weak candidates on both sides. And part of the reason Trump tapped into all that MAGA energy was that the ugly MAGA wing of the party was always out there, seething, and it drove them apoplectic to watch first McCain and then Romney lose to the Black guy.

You guys need to get out here to the trenches. There is absolutely no way in hell Kamala will ever be president.

Here's my sense from Deplorable Haven, FL: People here who previously voted for Trump are less excited about voting for him than they used to be. In fact, my guess is that many past Trump voters won't turn out to vote at all in November. They don't want to vote for Biden [italic]or[/italic] Trump.

But put Kamala at the top of the ticket, and every one of those racist/sexist mfers will get up off their fat ignorant asses and go to the polls to vote [bold]against[/bold] a black female president. I am certain of that.

There is a biker bar I've been to on the Nature Coast that still has a doll of Obama hanging from a noose at the bar. The few times I'd been there, I never went inside (the stage and food are outside), so I'd never seen it before. But I went there about six months ago, and saw it in the bar. A chill went up my spine, and I left very shortly thereafter. And no, I won't be going back there.

Back when Obama was president, I went to a shoe store in Kissimmee to pick up the motorcycle boots I was having re-soled, and the owner had put up a target on the door with Obama's face in the middle.

Never underestimate the influence of racism/sexism on the po' ignorant white trash who yes, indeed, have the same right to vote as you and I do. And apparently, there are a lot more of them than I ever could have imagined.

If Democrats want to win this time (and IMHO, our entire democracy is at stake), we'd best be safe and not poke the snake.

The sole reason they are where they are is due to their race, ethnicity or gender. No matter how hard they try to hide their hate, it eventually comes out.

THAT is the type of racist assholes you'll get in a Trump government if you vote Republican or don't vote at all because you think Biden is too old or upset someone else wasn't chosen to run.

Biden didn’t “sneeze.” He completely fell apart in a debate with Trump and by his own admission can only function effectively 6 hours a day. He wants to be an 86-year-old President .

He’s losing, and that’s not going to miraculously change.

R39 - unfortunately I think it's at the point where people view Biden as a liability and don't want to vote for a ticket with his name on it. Anyway, I think we'll have an answer as to whether Biden's staying in the race relatively soon. A lot hinges on tomorrow's press conference.

[quote]Here's my sense from Deplorable Haven, FL: People here who previously voted for Trump are less excited about voting for him than they used to be. In fact, my guess is that many past Trump voters won't turn out to vote at all in November. They don't want to vote for Biden or Trump.

I agree with what you said about the lack of enthusiasm for Trump...but, they also hate Biden with a passion too and if they think he's weak, that will bring them out in droves. But otherwise, you're right - putting Kamala at the top of the ticket is like waving a red flag in front of an angry bull. Those people will go apeshit.

I'm not a Biden defender pers se. I am just interested in defeating Trump and Joe would be doing fine if it weren't for the Media driving and shaping this narrative. Yes he has lost steam. Yes he is old. Too old. But we knew this 6 months ago. We knew it 2 years ago. We knew it one year ago. You do not change your nominee three-4 months out from an election. Think t his through. First of all no, people will not all come together the way they did in 2020. The only reason they did it then was because it was Biden. None of the other wannabes were able to unite factions and bring the party together then and they won't be now.

And many of you also underestimate the probability of mischief from the Republicans and their minions. They'd absolutely love an open convention.They want us to dump Joe. They want Kamala to b the nominee. Or, anyone for hat matter. Look at the record of achievements of this administration. Do you have any idea how stupid we would look to the entire world, not to mention our own countrymen, if we dump this administration because the NYT, CNN and George Clooney say so? If you wanted Joe Biden to resign you should have given him a dignified exit ramp. Bullying him and gossiping and spreading bullshit isn't going to do it. At this point in time, " we gotta dance with the guy that brung us."

Bullshit, R107. Joe was old a few years ago but he was still capable of leading our nation. Now he's led around by his power-hungry wife. He was given an offramp, but he refuses to get off the damn highway. He's now comparable to the old guy unknowingly weaving between lanes who's had his directional signal on for the last four exits. He hasn't a clue anymore.

Also, a big grain of salt with the Clooney article. He was pissed because his Muslim wife's demands that Netanyahu (and Hamas leaders) be arrested for war crimes, were ignored by the Biden administration. These celebrities become more self-important and delusional by the day. And what's this about DC politicians and governors telling him about their private opinions on Biden? He's a celebrity who doesn't even reside in the US. WTF is wrong with these wannabe star fuckers?

We're in this because Joe Biden is no exception to the standings: Time, Aging, Gravity - Billions v. Humans - ZERO

And I didn't just jump on the Give-it-up, Joe Bandwagon after the debate.

I had misgivings two years ago when he announced he was running again. And since then, every time he appears on my TV I avert my eyes and ears, too damn nervous to watch him.

That counts for something, and President Empathy should exercise some of that on behalf of Democrats.

And I don't buy the fear mongering over the convention. This is our challenge. This is how we show Americans we correct mistakes and move on to address the existential threat posed by Trump.

I can't speak for other countries, but I can say that here in the UK, most people would certainly not consider it a stupid move for the Dems to convince Biden to quit. The general consensus among the British media is that Biden is about to hand the presidency to Trump. That view is definitely shared by the people I've discussed it with IRL (although obviously that's just my bubble). It's your country and your decision, but I really don't think it's true that the rest of the world would see it as a sign of weakness or foolishness if you ditched Biden.

My impression is that the debate just ripped off the grand illusion that the White House has been manufacturing for months, by shielding Biden from press conferences, interviews, complicated walks to a podium, etc. because they have known (but hid) the fact that he is in bad shape. Plus the campaign and knitting circle around Joe have been telling people for months that everything is fine. It's not personal, we are just in the middle of a political crisis and we can't afford to run a weak candidate who has lost the confidence of the American people.

If I were American I would be more concerned who is running this party, what are their intentions and capability of judgement than Joe's.

Obviously a lot of voters are thinking Biden is too elderly and weak/declining to do this.

Maybe most voters don't think it through that much. But maybe some do.

The Obamas and Clooney are "friends" in that Hollywood way. He probably called Obama because Joe was Obama's VP and they continue to be friends. Obama has been campaigning for Joe, and fundraising for Joe. Vigorously. He is not about to co-sign, endorse or encourage the continuing pile on of Joe Biden. Point of fact, Obama has always been protective of Joe. Chris Matthews re wrote history this morning when he said Obama endorsed Hillary over Biden in 2016. That's not what happened. Beau Biden Died in late spring of 2015. Joe was devastated, and he was not up to a Presidential campaign. He was grieving. The election was in November of 2016, but the campaigning started in 2015 and Joe was not able to deal with it. Now maybe Joe still wanted to run, and Barack discouraged him. But I interpret that as an act of a loving friend not as a betrayal.
