It's official - Biden's the pick

at least for now.

I watched some of his acceptance speech last night, and have to give him high marks for reading from a teleprompter while in an empty (maybe mostly empty) room with no distractions.  His delivery was very good.  Actually, much better than I expected.

I expect he will get a bump in the polls from this, as his congnitive abilities were in question.  I also expect Trump will gain some of that back after the RNC.  

Let the games begin.

    I watched lit bits here and there. Never heard anything except how bad Trump is and he did everything wrong.  Just once I would like to hear  WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO FOR AMERICA
    In reality, there are few politicians alive that have a worse track record than Biden.  No accomplishments, anti gun, caught in a International money scandal using his son for family gain.  and on and on

    If Trump will shut up, stick to a subject and stop mocking people he will be a shoo in

    "Mocking" is a word best left in the 19th century. Just sayin'. ;)

    If he wins the oval office in November. It won't be because people are impressed with his executive prowess, or his altruistic innocence.

    It will be because the incumbent self destructed.  Seats in Congress will be similar.

    I didn't watch the show. Also I think it may be a mistake to judge majority public opinion by the tone carried on the tv news. 

    A historical weather event is heading for the Gulf coast. The timing could be of importance here. There's also the continuing adjudication of Trump's gangsters. So far the mileage of such things has been negligible. That could change, or not.

    I HAD to go to CNN to see their reaction.  It was like a rolling orgasm...

    I think earlys second paragraph in his above post is spot on. This is Trumps election to lose, and he's doing a great job so far.

    This is the most dismal options of candidates I've seen in my life

    I'll see your Donald Trump vs. Joe Biden race, and raise you the Jimmy Carter and Gerald Ford race. (Ford was the incumbent for any young pups wondering about it.)

    Not to worry if Biden wins the election. Within 6 months of his bungling they'll 25th Amendment his demented butt and Kamala will ascend to the throne. Kamala and Fancy Nancy as Prez and VP; what a winning pair!

    Exactly what I'm fearing.....and with a Dem House, and very possibly a Dem controlled Senate.....We'll quickly no longer recognize our own country.

    I'm not a huge Trump fan. But the current choices seem to be gag or puke. I'm more worried about 2024 than 2020.

    Yep.

     Four years from now. We could face a total loss of public confidence in our elective process, an economy so bad that people need government checks for stimulus, rioting in the streets, defunding of police, impeachment hearings, legal battles instead of legislation, civil unrest, gun and ammunition shortages due to panic buying, and unbearable television broadcasts............

    Not to mention having all our guns taken away. Just like Obama did.

    The horror, the horror, the horror............

    I'm trying to muster some optimism on this.

    We are looking at EXACTLY the same fear of the leftist agenda and leftist judge appointments that got Trump the victory four years ago.

    Trump still has that original base, has picked up people that actually support him now, rather than just voted against Hillary, and the Dems have spent the last four years REALLY showing their true colors.

    The Trump administration does have at least some laurels to rest on, whereas the Dem ticket is TRULY abysmal.  I've got one relative who's been a lifelong opponent of Republicans who just decided to vote for Trump when the news came out that Harris was the VP pick.

    We've had plenty of (largely Dem-sponsored) government mandated shutdowns due to COVID and NOBODY is loving that.

    The sheer quantity of Biden's clear statements that he's after your money, guns, and freedoms provide for plenty of sound bytes that are NOT going to help him. 

    All of that goes if one has optimism about the intelligence of the American Voter.  I'm on the fence on that one.

    Obama Biden had  a string Republican party to fight.  Biden Harris will run rampant with Pelosi as the speaker, giddy help us if the Dems take the Senate also
