    Biden is 10000x a better and more stable president than the cheeto that lost the election fair and square. The orange moron was the most corrupt and incompetent president in modern American history. I hope he runs in 2024 because he will guarantee the Democratic Party a win.

    Do you think they'll put up Harris, snub?

    Well, that's a ways off.

    One thing almost for sure the Dems will get crushed in the midterms next year — losing the house and possibly even the senate.

    According to polls, independents in swing areas aren't happy with Biden and the Dems' perfomance.

    It doesn't matter who the Dems run in 2024. The Republicans are busy correcting the errors of their last coup attempt by changing state electoral laws to have the power to decertify the results, and submit their own electoral college. Gonna be a wild one.

    Her military background would certainly give her a leg up on anyone running against her.

    Pun intended?

    It would be very unusual for the DNC Not to run Harris. She is paying her dues.
    If indeed they don't, a deal will be made with her for some other internationally responsible condition to pad her resume, for a 2028 run.
    Perhaps secretary of State. Much in the way a deal was made With Hillary Clinton to support Obama .

    Not likely — though, it the dems ran Tulsi Gabbard in 2024 against the republicans, she'd pick up a lot of the libertarian independent vote.

    "He's got neither the competence nor the guts"...

    Biden's comments about Taiwan shows that he has lost his marbles completely. Sorry Snubby, but Sleepy Joe won't make it. The Republicans don't even have to rip him apart because he is falling apart.

    Will someone be so kind and put this guy in a retirement home... have some mercy.

    But let's be fair, the world press is just "now" starting to report about the incompetence of Biden. I guess they gave him some time after those cruel laughable Trump years.

    The Biden's and Trump's should be exempted from politics . That could make America Great Again.

    The preposterous notion that Gabbard could win the Democratic nomination for president is laughable. She saw the writing on the wall and was going to be primaried and likely lose in her home district in Hawai'i. As a fall back she has decided to appeal to the Q loons and Fox News crowd to keep her income rolling in.
    Pues, aquí estamos.

    Many folks here are frustrated by the Democrats as they try to push through the Biden agenda but seem stymied at every turn. I have found that it’s best to think of things this way: We don’t really have 50 Democrats. We have 48 Democrats and 2 Corporatists. That means the actual current Senate make up is 50 Republicans, 48 Democrats, and 2 Corporatists.

    The Corporatists, Sens. Manchin and Sinema, answer to the fossil fuel industry and to big pharma. That’s why we can’t get their agreement on clean energy proposals for climate change and Medicare negotiation on prescription drug prices.

    What we can get their agreement on is an expansion of the social safety net, which ultimately is good for business, too. Workers will be better off with subsidized child care, elder care, pre-K subsidies, and child tax credits for poor families. We should come into the modern age with things like this. And we need to do something about climate change to meet our global commitments, though we can argue about how best to get there.

    If you think of the Senate this way, it is something of a miracle that we are close to pushing through Biden’s agenda, which is the largest expansion of this social safety net since the Great Depression years. Even at half the originally hoped-for price tag, it is transformative for working families, for children, for our elderly. To get this, Democrats needed to bargain and negotiate with the two corporatists, who are looking out for big business interests and their rich pals who fund their campaigns and lifestyles.

    The two aren’t as bad as the GOP. They vote with the Dems on most social issues and have allowed Biden to appoint his cabinet and progressive judges to the federal bench. Without their support, we’d be nowhere.

    When the Build Back Better and infrastructure bills pass—and I still believe there is a good chance of them both passing—we should take it as a win. And we should stop blaming Democrats that there are corporatists in Democrats’ vests in the Senate. We should remember that the true enemy are the 50 GOP Senators who are doing nothing to help the average American family. And we should sing Nancy Pelosi’s and Chuck Schumer’s and Joe Biden’s praises loudly rather than gripe about what they could not accomplish. Because what they are accomplishing with these bills is truly, truly remarkable under these near impossible circumstances and odds.

    Toe the line. Idiomatic expression that comes from when racers stand poised at the line waiting for the starting pistol to be fired.

    Nice to see Joe throw Australia under the bus to save a little face with France. That bloke needs to grow some balls. Then to add insult to injury wax lyrical about America having no greater friend than France. He might have got Macron back on side but lost a lot from a country who has always backed up their supposed mate.
    At least we know where we stand now with slippery Joe.

    Is anybody actually buying the line that "he thought others were informed when they were not" to wiggle his way out of this 'French situation'. First asking us to believe he was mis-informed about the situation in Afghanistan and now this.

    Joe is in a very tough situation. I fear it is going to be a very long three years. I'm not sure the nation can weather this storm. We have never needed strong leadership more and this man simply can't provide it. Jill is going to have to sit her husband down and explain that there is no shame in stepping aside.

    Bring on the reds guys.
