Hey all:

If Joe Biden had run 4 years ago, he would be President.

Time has come & gone though.  The Democrats (DNC) I don't think will allow it now.

Rumors that he is already a zombie already were exaggerated as he became somewhat alive during the last debate.
From the retirement home Trio - Donald, Bernie and Joe, he is my favorite (or least despised). Tulsi looks match better though, especially when she sweats a little.

I Like Tulsi's foreign policy. She loses me on everything else. I don't think Joe has a chance. The idea seems to be he will try to sound as much like Obama as possible and therefore draw all the previous voters to his base. I could see Corey Booker potentially getting the nomination. Although he is pretty much an admitted rapist who got ahead of the curve by saying "sorry" in a school paper. I think Kamala is completely finished...her track record and policies are terrible. Same goes for Warren, Bernie, Beto and Buttigige (his lack of separation of church and state worry me). Then there is Andrew Yang "An Asian who is good at math" ; who seemingly can't do the math on his own policies correctly. But his heart is in the right place  :P. Some of those other guys like Mr. Montana baffle me. They sound like left leaning republicans on a lot of their stances.

If they choose to go with Joe it's simply amazing. Didn't the democratic party want to get away from "old white men"? The guy is on stage talking about policies from the 70s!

Is it just me or is Michael Bennet the presidential version of Bill Murray?

I find it strange that 0bama tried to talk Biden, that he shouldn't run2020.


Quote
According to the Times, 0bama reportedly tried to gently nudge the former veep from entering the 2020 field during one of several chats the friends had ahead of Biden announcing his candidacy in April.

“You don’t have to do this, Joe, you really don’t,” 0bama reportedly told Biden.

"
When they were done, Mr. Obama offered a pointed reminder, according to two people with knowledge of his comments:

Win or lose, they needed to make sure Mr. Biden did not “embarrass himself” or “damage his legacy” during the campaign."

https://www.spin.com/2019/08/obama-warned-biden-staff-dont-embarrass-himself/
Because he´s worried about his legacy...

That sounds like a BS. More likely he is trying to make it easier to moochelle enter the race.

Its not really a secret Obama thinks Biden is a putz, but saw him as the necessary establishment white guy he needed to round out his ticket in 08. By second term, Biden wasn't really needed anymore.

Its also not much of a secret Obamas preference is for Koomala Harris.

I vividly remember watching the vice-presidential debate in 2012 and recalled it reading your post as, to me, 2012 appears to have been a missed opportunity. During the debate and in closing remarks, Mr. Paul Ryan gave what could be considered incomplete answers but the answers contained seeds of reform. In the same remarks, Mr. Joe Biden offered peace of mind.

After listening to the conclusion, I wondered: "How can you win an election with such a Zombie answer?"
Conclusion: I have poor ability to predict election results. But sometimes zombies win.

I'd agree with his criticisms but I'd say he's about 50/50 in terms of realistic solutions. His "wall street trading tax" for example is simply unrealistic. But, actually enforcing our tax law on the wealthiest corporations and individuals is a good idea.

I know this got some publicity, but just imagine if Trump had recently said this.  Do you think there is a chance in hell that you wouldn't have heard about it?  Biden is the Dan Quayle of the Democratic party and the press just never mentions it.  Do some searching for dumb Biden quotes, you can read all day.

Although I find Trump more amusing, because he make the press go ballistic, whereas the press ignores anything Biden says and does, and pretends they didn't hear or see it.  "Nope I didn't hear another racist comment or see him with his hands all over a little girl...."

If a president says something crazy and no one reports it, is it even entertaining?

Biden probably is the Democrats best shot - a guy who will probably do more or less nothing, if elected. Warren went loony when she proposed forbidding fracking (if not before) which would probably lose her PA and who knows what other state. Bernie is the Ron Paul of the left and won’t be elected either.

I support taken a stab on climate in a measured way, but quite frankly, I don’t think the general public is too keen on spending tens of trillions on a huge green deal and such. Fixing aging infrastructure and inflating health care costs and education would probably give a better chance of getting the election sealed.

Yes.  It is probably for the best anyway.  Both Trump and any of the D's will be a disaster on both foreign policy and domestically.  In different ways, but both horrible.  But with Ruth Bader Ginsburg's health status, I'd rather have Trump nominating someone to the Supreme Court than any of the the Democrats.

Not only will a Trump nominee be far more likely to protect the 2nd Amendment, but with the left's current disdain for the 1st Amendment I think a constitutional conservative would be better from almost every angle.    I know there is abortion to worry about, but Roe-v-Wade isn't going to be repealed. And even in the worse case if it were, only a handful of southern states in the bible belt would change their abortion laws.

Biden looks like a spent force. Physically he looks tired, displays an impotent rage, a mere ghost of his former self, looks shriveled & diminutive, doesn't show a fighting spirit.

Warren is hitting her stride, with vigor, passion and on message. I've never seen Biden hit hard on Trump's corruption. Biden looks like male version of Hillary. Where's the sense of outrage?

I wont be surprised if Warren became D's nominee.

Why is banning fracking considered "loony"? I would not let my family live anywhere close to anywhere where there's any sort of fracking activity.

After Trump, Warren would seem like a divine voice of rationality with the economic wisdom rivaled only by the other warren.  Seriously, compared to the total shit storm that we got now? Common.

Have you ever been on a fracking pad or near one? I have been on many as in HS for a summer job I drove all over North Central PA in a Jeep Wrangler taking ground water samples. The amount of precautions they take are extreme. If anyone ever screws up on the pad or spills some chemical etc. they are generally immediately fired then a long arduous cleanup process begins. I'd be willing to bet there is more pollution in your local Walmart parking lot from leaking engines and exhaust than on a well pad.

"Why is banning fracking considered "loony"? I would not let my family live anywhere close to anywhere where there's any sort of fracking activity."

It is amazing the level of propaganda that has been going on. By the way, the original anti-fracking film was funded by Russia so hopefully it tells you something. Lots of lies in there.

It is also very interesting to hear from a European who would not let his family live in a farm field with an oil well drilled 2,000 feet below ground but, who would let his family live by highly poluted rivers, diesel infested air, next to a nuclear reactor and such dense population that any dangerous, untreatable flu would cause all of them to die.

Yes, and surprisingly publically calling a woman a "lying dog-faced pony soldier" didn't turn everything around.  I thought for sure people would be like "I never liked Biden before, you know, touching kids and all.  But when I saw him call that woman a lying dog-faced pony soldier I just knew he had my vote."

Virtually any frontrunner could be considered too old for almost any job:

Biden -77 years old, appears often not quite there.
Sanders - 78, heart attack
Bloomberg - 78 years old
Trump - 73 (almost 74), clinically obese.

I think the millennials really need to step up their game and bring someone forward like Kennedy in the 60’s if they want to change the way things are going.

Trump pulls the same things. like for example when he implied Kansas City being in the state of Kansas.
 https://www.nytimes.com/2020/02/02/us/politics/trump-kansas-city-chiefs-tweet.html (https://www.nytimes.com/2020/02/02/us/politics/trump-kansas-city-chiefs-tweet.html)

I guess there is a reason why we never get to see his school records. He probably would fail the US citizen test as well.

What a massive turn of events. On Friday he looked finished. On Tuesday he looks SUPER. Moderate Democrats finally have picked their candidate to rally around. The bloom looks to be wearing off Bernie.

And stock futures are way up. I am starting to agree with those who think the Democratic race was also a factor in the big sell off last week in stocks (when it looked like Bernie was running away with the Democratic nomination).

Bernie was a tail risk for the stock market that is now substantially reduced.

US elections are a binary affair. Almost anything can happen. I also think that the Covid-19 epidemic - how the economy develops and how the government handles it will play into the election outcome.

Bloomberg’s delegates will probably go towards Biden too. He also will quit the Race - his big bet on Super Tuesday didn’t work out.

One of the main reasons I started pairing down exposure in October with the end exposure reduction target being February was the Dem nomination process and the potential for a wild socialist candidate. I think we even had a few threads here about a Warren presidency, etc. Going from Trump and great economy to Socialist and Recession would indeed be devastating to markets.

To reply to my own post:  I am pleasantly surprised Biden came out so strong yesterday.  Not that I want him to be president, but I consider him to be the lesser of all the evils on the Democratic side.  Neither a Biden presidency or another 4 years of Trump will be a disaster.  And the debates will be great.  Who ever wins the general election we are guaranteed multiply daily facepalms during the election and 4 more years of hilarity afterwards.

All and all the best outcome that could be hoped for with this crop of candidates.

That's going to be a hard sell when your #1 issue by a long mile is disarming the American people.  But however he tries to brand himself running as an independent is still an option for him.  He certainly has the cash and is obviously willing to spend it.  Unlike Perot thought, he isn't any different from the major party candidates in any significant way.  He won't make much of an impact.   Perot was laser focused on the debt and deficit and had some things to say that no major party candidate was saying.  Bloomberg is just another politician saying the same old things.

I think it was just a gamble for him. He spent like $500M (tax deductible I presume) with a net worth of $50B (or more) that’s just 1% of his net worth. He is 78 and can’t take it with him, so in that sense, I guess the gamble was worth it for him.

For much different reasons though.  People didn't think Trump would be a disaster because he was opposed to the economic system that has lifted billions out of poverty and supported one that has murdered hundreds of millions in one century.  They just thought he was crude and stupid (which he is).

Funny to nominate Biden though if you don't like crude and stupid.

I might vote against Biden because of what they did to Bernie. I figure the media will turn a blind eye to Biden but will stay on Trump hard when he does shady things. It's a good way to balance things out. Trump is a turd but he seems to be more with it cognitively than Biden.
What did they do to Bernie?

The screwed him in 2016 (actually fed questions to Clinton before the debate).

And they convinced these guys to drop out right before Super Tuesday and endorse Biden to stop Sanders. Talk about a democracy.

I personally don't think Sanders would be that bad because there are a lot things in place to stop foolishness. I do think we need to be more vigilant of the middle class getting destroyed.

Jesus, what a bunch of cry babies the Bernie ppl are. The difference between Bernie winning and loosing the 2016 primary was one question at one debate?

Now people aren't allowed to drop out of primaries because that doesn't help Bernie? Just like Trump. When you can't win start yelling RIGGED! RIGGED!

You know what else the the Democrats did to Bernie? They let him compete in the primary even though he wasn't a member of the party. If I was in their place I sure as shit wouldn't have allowed it. You wanna be the leader of the party? Wear the fucking hat.

It wasn't just "one question."

I love Joe's style, he tells potential voter how he's "full of shit," and calls him a "horse's ass,". ;D

https://twitter.com/heckyessica/status/1237460923415134209

This guy is not a potential voter at least not for him. Note how he reads his question from his cellphone. Staged. I actually like Biden‘s answer, he says it the way it is. This guy is full of shit and looks for a blurb not an answer. Anyways if the helmet guy is concerned about  having a president who uses vulgar language every once in a while, he can’t vote for Trump either, can he?

Trump is paranoid.  Just look at how the COVID-19 is just another hoax and is really a sinister media plot to take down his presidency.  It's just like his insane deep-state stuff.  He isn't mentally fit for the job.

Trump makes it "all about him".  A narcissist does that, and in the case of COVID-19 it puts the country at peril.

Former CIA director Brennan:  "I wonder if Trump is psychologically capable to put the country first"

I agree with you. At least GOP let the groundswell happen. They let the people speak. Like I said, I think the media will be harder on Trump which acts somewhat of a hedge against him.

"There will be liquidity available."

This could be the line to cause Trump to lose the election. Any small mom and pop shop that closes or any individuals who "feel the pain" will read that line with great contempt.

It's unfortunate how corrupt the system is. :(

Stuff like this makes me want Bernie. I think this kinda stuff continues under Biden or Trump. If people want rewards, they should also bear the risk.

More paranoia:  Trump makes it all about him (narcissism again).  The world is out to get him, don't you know.


Trump watched angrily from the West Wing Thursday as stock markets tumbled to their worst percentage loss since the 1987 Black Friday, casting blame on the Federal Reserve for what he increasingly believes is an attempt to ruin his presidency.

I think liquidity should be available, but at a high price. Similar deal like with Warren Buffet
 Buffet, 10% yielding preferred and equity warrants. If they don’t need it, fine, if they can get a better deal at private markets then there really isn’t a problem. How much did the airlines spent on buybacks and dividends the last few years? If you are an airline exec, things like this should be part of the course of business, as they are roughly 10 year events. If you can’t last past those, you shouldn’t be in business.

Cruise lines are even worse. Their ships sail under a Liberian flag (or other low regulation/low cost flag), and they don’t really pay US taxes, nor is any US citizen or person employed on these ships, they are all Indian or phillipinos. Which is fine, but one shouldn’t even consider bailing them out. they should go to the Liberian government asking for help and see how it goes.

+1

Not to mention why they sail under foreign flags, since those countries have extremely lax labor laws. They can get away with paying their workers chump change. Those workers have a terrible lifestyle.  The worst part is the workers aren't even allowed to eat the food made for customers. And we all know how much food is wasted on these ships. They have their own bland, basic meals that they're provided. I'm a libertarian and it still irks me. At least treat people humanely.

This could be the line to cause Trump to lose the election.  Truman kept a sign on his desk "the buck stops here".  When you're president that's the fact.

Indeed. Us thinking participants have limited ability to perceive objective reality. I'd also add that if by coincidence we do have the ability to be somewhat more flexible and go 180 on our own opinions, it's simply because we were born with way.

Indeed. One has to balance the ability to change opinion with evolving facts while retaining the immunity to remain enslaved to the thoughts of a defunct economist.  :)

You may remember that we had a previous exchange in this thread about Mr. Biden’s odds. I had raised the theory that Mr. Biden could be the “peace of mind” or “zombie” candidate. I’m still not sure how to integrate this into individual security investment decisions but the Market behaves more and more like a drug addict, requiring both a huge and unprecedented monetary and fiscal boost in the same day, to avoid seeing red. All I can say is that drug addicts tend to be unpredictable and unreliable so I’m not sure what kind of candidate the world’s greatest nation needs. A war time president?

BTW, around the kitchen table yesterday (almost everybody’s home now), the following topic came up: let’s say the government sends one-time and periodic checks to everyone, who’s going to pay? I remained silent and thought all answers were unsatisfactory, given that the “pay” part will be inversely proportional to one’s age. Sometimes it’s better not to know?

It would be really disappointing if all we get is a Biden after all this mess. I was really hoping that if things get really bad we'll be seeing a real change... oh well, better than nothing (read: Trump) as long as he works to strengthen the institutions, so it won't be that easy to take them down when the next psycho becomes president.

I've previously been saying that Trump will win, but things have changed so radically that I'm not sure what will happen.  I wouldn't put money on Trump winning, so we could end up with an old senile kiddy grabber instead.
