Terrible debate. We are screwed either way.

And I thought that there were some intelligent people on this forum who don't post false equivalences.

I agree. If CoBF houses the most intelligent and rational people, then we are really screwed.

I didn't see an "=" between those two statements.  All I see is two true statements that may be correlated, but are not necessarily equivalent or causal.  It is more likely they both have the same cause.

What a lot of undecided voters will probably soon realize, if it wasn't fully apparent last night, is that with Biden, at best, you are getting the policies he talks about embracing...which are pretty freakin socialist and just brutal all around. At worst, well, you get the real agenda being pushed by Harris and the extremists. Thats why all these "republicans against Trump" are total liars and frauds. You may not like Trump personally...but there is no way any center/republican can look at the policies most likely to come from a Biden presidency and conclude they resemble anything close to anything a republican would be ok with.

What the hell does "pack the court" even mean?  When a judge dies or retires there is an opening and the president's job is to nominate a replacement and the senate's job is to vote yes or no.  Saying, as president I won't nominate judges when openings arise is pretty stupid.

no, packing the court refers to congress (if Ds control both houses and the senate repeals the filibuster) expanding the number of justices and the D potus filing them...expanding the court and filling them...what FDR proposed to do...questionable if constitutional

you from outside the US?

What you described is the way it has been setup to works for over 150 years.

Pack the court means that if the libs get control of the Senate they will pass legislation allowing them to expand the Supreme Court to however many judges they want. Which would then allow Joe(or more likely Koomala) to fill however many vacancies he pleases. Again, something many "Republicans against Trump" support.....

My mother-in-law in India thought Biden came across as completely incompetent and out of it; anecdotes like that from relatively disinterested sources are all I have to go on. 

Biden actually did better than I expected (which is to say he managed to sputter a few compound sentences), and Wallace pretty shamefully cut off Biden every time he was about to make a jackass of himself.  Unless there's a real hidden electorate the polls keep missing, Trump lost an important opportunity to illustrate how obscene and radical the left will be with its economic policy and burgeoning racial obsessions, which would resonate with so many voters more than stories about Hunter Biden.

Here is the viewpoint from a rational, smart man:

BET founder Robert Johnson says 'I will take the devil I know,' adding he doesn't know what Biden will do
