    Multiple centrist Democrats have been all over the media lately claiming that "behind closed doors, Republicans are congratulating Joe Biden on his win, and they really see an era going forward of bipartisan deal-making with the Biden administration", etc.

    Does this type of political framing HELP or HURT the Democrats going into the Georgia runoffs?

    Personally, I think that messaging that the opposition are good actors, they're not obstructionist, that was just Trump, and he's gone!.... that's the dumbest fucking message you could put out there. 93% of registered Republicans voted Trump, they're seriously nuts and this message that they're reasonable people is either the dumbest strategy ever from Dems, or INTENDED to hurt their own chances. I can't decide. But I don't give them enough credit to have forgotten Republican obstruction from '08-'16, so I think its more likely an inside hit job.

    Now, I wish they were messaging that the opposition are literally a death cult, and list the ways, make it dire. It wouldn't even be hard! You will need motivation to match Trump's base, and the current message says "Back to brunch!"

The personal stuff is pointless distraction.

    Some here are capable of engaging the substance of what I post. Chancellor, Sour Masher, sometimes others. Most just go with the tried and true "attack the messenger" without addressing the message. I want what Biden says he wants. When he does things counter to what he claims he wants, I'm going to attack him for it. How is that unreasonable?
    Just stop. Just Fucking stop. I am merely pointing out your incessant rant about Biden is 1. tiresome as we get it--you don't like him and 2. not entirely accurate in your assessment--you've been retorted and have chosen to stick by your opinions regardless--I get it-WE get it, so get out my ear with it.

    NOT ONE DAMN PERSON IN HERE is saying Biden is a great choice, that he's more than he's not--he is just BETTER than Trump Period--end of fucking tory. he'll be out of office before 2024 so enjoy that. IF Biden does HALF the shit Trump did--he'll still be better, IF he took money from Russia--He's still BETTER than Trump, if he's a creepy, handsy ol man--He's STILL better than Trump--IT IS ABOUT TRUMP>

    Decency and integrity, Ethics and policy went out the window in 2016--YES we all want it to matter, but to get to that point we need to crawl out of this ravine the country have been driven into and to do that--we just need to change drivers.

    SO--when you bitch about Biden--WHO THE FUCKK CARES!! We Know--0The system is broken, Biden is flawed and there were better choices out there--i6t's not like we are ignorant--it's just that we want this asshat of a President to get the fuck out of here ASAP and I'd take even Bush Jr again over Trump if that's the only choice I have.

    We're not attacking you personally Jessie, we're just tired of the constant, repetitive whining about something that frankly--doesn't matter a bit right now. Give it a rest for a bit, please.

    Again, I am NOT attacking YOU personally, but what you're doing or is what you post on a roto baseball message board all you are? I don't think that, neither should you.

    And again, it doesn't matter what Biden is or is not doing--he's a means to and end so any critique I'd have of him is irrelevant. So if I may, think of it this way--you want to talk relevance--talk about Harris--SHE will be running thins soon enough.

    But Biden? It's like complaining about an ex spouse or partner, maybe good for the soul--but doesn't make a bit of difference in any tangible way.

    Here i thought bringing up an issue of substance would invite a fair discussion, instead you want me to talk about Kamala Harris? Someone I've railed against in dozens of posts to widespread derision and claims of bias, again without addressing the substance of my complaints? Thats utterly ridiculous bait I won't be taking.

    If nobody responds to my takes, that's fine. But I won't be giving up talking about current issues just because someone doesn't like my opinions. This ain't communist China, Jack!

    It's not your opinions but the fact that you spam them like viagra ads on the internet.

    It would definitely be a relief. I hope he's made a good pitch for it.
