That’s the date of the first debate. It’ll run from 7-8:30 from Ohio.
That’s three weeks from today.
Do you think Joe Biden is actually going to go through with it?
Something will ‘come up,’ something that allows Biden to gracefully bow-out.
Maybe it’ll be Covid, perhaps a ‘peaceful protest,’ but more than likely it’ll be something we can’t even comprehend yet.
I think the Democrats would be crazy to let Biden debate Trump for 90 minutes.
84 million people watched the first debate in 2016, and if even a fraction of that watches this year and sees Biden...well, it’s over.
It’s clear that no one close to Biden cares about him.
If they did, they’d end this sad charade.
Biden has immense cognitive decline and it’s apparent to just about everyone.
He can’t even read a teleprompter properly anymore. For a man that’s been in politics for 50 years, something like talking to a small room of people should be easy.
But he can’t even do that anymore.
Dems are trying to come up with just about anything they can to delay or extend this election...anything that might give them a chance.
With Biden, they have no chance and they know it. Biden did incredibly poorly in the early primary races, but then was bailed-out by the Party ahead of South Carolina. Then all the has-beens and never-weres around him folded and now the voters are stuck with Dementia Joe.
What a mess.
So Dems have to inject this idea into the national narrative that the election will take forever to count and tabulate and we might not know who wins by the time January 20 rolls around, so the ice cream lady will have to take over.
Here in Montana, your ballot has to get to the elections office by 8 PM on election night.
If it doesn’t make it by then, it doesn’t count.
It’s a pretty simple system, yet Dems will have to do something to subvert it.
How else are they going to beat Trump?
And how the hell are any of these statewide Dems going to win?
Mike Cooney? I don’t think he stands a chance. Steve Bullock? Bragged about how much he didn’t want to be a senator.
You’d think in a country of 328 million and a state of 1 million that the Dems could come up with some kind of viable candidates.
But they couldn’t.
Four years ago the Dems should have sat themselves down and had a hard talking with themselves about who they are, what they stand for, and how they can win.
But they didn’t.
Instead they acted like petulant children, blaming everyone but themselves.
When they lose again this year, maybe they will take the much-needed hard look at themselves.
But I doubt.
