I’m honestly spellbound.

Between this and the border news, I have to wonder if he looked at that tepid Tulsa crowd and panicked that his base was dissatisfied with him. But dissolving the ACA, delivering a mandate on Trump, and immigrant caravan panics were the defining issues of 2018, and it resulted in a blue wave election. Adding that on top of the last six months feels like purposeful suicide.

“My plan is simple: we lose badly enough to empower Democrats to redistrict 12 of the closest swing states and make DC a state, while also killing off most of the voters that favor us.”

It’s funny, because when he won in 2016, we all sort of wondered if he would bring the end of the modern republican party. Lately it’s feeling like it’s less of a fantasy and more like a real possibility.

After the next poll comes out: "What we really need is a Kent State moment. Look what that did for Nixon in the '72 election."

The ACA thing is wild because the only groups in favor of that are insurance execs and small business tyrants, both of which are solid Trump voters. No electoral advantage to be gained here. Just pure spite

Maybe this is him burning it all down because he actually doesn’t want to be president anymore and he has to big of an ego to step aside.

can't wait for the home stretch and hopefully obama showing up to some biden speech and crushing it (a la B Clinton 2012)

Quote:
Mr. Obama speaks with the former vice president and top campaign aides frequently, offering suggestions on staffing and messaging. Last month, he bluntly counseled Mr. Biden to keep his speeches brief, interviews crisp and slash the length of his tweets, the better to make the campaign a referendum on Mr. Trump and the economy, according to Democratic officials.

He has taken a particular interest in Mr. Biden’s work-in-progress digital operation, the officials said, enlisting powerful friends, like the LinkedIn founder Reid Hoffman and the former Google chief executive Eric Schmidt, to share their expertise, they said.

Biden seemed pretty straightforward/clear with his speech and Q&A today. It was refreshing to see someone answer questions and not attack the questioners.

This is why the "Biden can't form a coherent sentence" strategy seems like a dubious one. It lowers expectations so much that he's going to go out on a debate stage, be able to string two sentences together and not shit in his own hand, and he'll overcome everyone's assumptions.

Cue the MADTV "lowered expectations" logo gif.

Basing your campaign on "he's senile!" when he's....well....not, is going to be a bit of a struggle. Sure, his base will believe it, but is that going to be enough?

Trump To Nominate Anti-Environment Extremist As Permanent Public Lands Chief

William Perry Pendley says his personal views and past actions are “irrelevant” when it comes to leading an agency that manages more than one-third of all federal land.

There are three suspects, minimum.

Whichever one says “thing is, he’s not wrong” first is our man.
