Which is your right as to how you view it.I strongly disagree with this statement Willmark, no Biden is not the be all end all but compared to Trump? Biden may not be the ultimate president, but YES on much more leadership.... I see a hundred bars up the civil and responsible scale from this new LOW that is Trumpism.....sure he will say many zingers and guffaws....and if people will not have anywhere near the amount of malarkey(lol its akin to comparing a pond to an ocean of garbage)......NOPE he will not be perfect, but the overall picture to the WORLD and for our own country will be vastly improved from day one....he will fix some things and help rebuild some of what has been lost imho.
It will be interesting for our choices for the following election 2024, I am praying that whomever it will be spends the next four years learning and strengthening what they have to offer this country, and wouldn't it be wonderful if we had TWO good choices to choose from?
Government has been the problem for (at least) 50 years (if not more), and Biden has been in government for close to that same time. He's part of the system that has given us bad government time and again (and then some) and more so than any other Senator has caused the SC fights to become so polarizing. And yes for those taking umbrage, that includes Obama in the part of the problem category too. (ETA: In fact the last time we had great or inspiring leadership was Truman. Eisenhower, Kennedy are in the Very Good to Good category; Nixon? Fail. LBJ, Below Average as was Ford, Exceptionally Poor for Carter; Very Good for Reagan, Good for Bush I, Good for Slick Willy, Below Average for Bush II, and Above Average for Obama, Trump? Trending towards every bit as Exceptionally Poor as Carter).
Leader? Biden's nothing more than a party apparatchik.
There is no sugar coating how poor of a choice Biden is, its simply a matter of whether or not one believes he's "better" than Trump. To me? Each suck in their own unique way and hence why I'm voting for the only sane choice when it comes to a Jo (Joe) in 2020... Jo Jurgensen.
We do have a good choice this time around, but its even more magnified now because each side is busy making sure it's either Trump or Biden, or more importantly to them: making sure its not their poltical opponent, maybe more so. It's a shame people (not saying you) will continue to be part of the system that propagates the cycle. Neither side is interested in change each wants power just as much as the other, they want a super majority so they can rule without the minority party to stop them. I want both parties nerfed so they can't do what they chastise the other side for when they are out of power, but then turn around and do the minute they are in power.
Sorry for the digress but I don't see either the Dems or the Repubs as having pure motives here, but definitely self serving ones.
