Oh I don't think we should put troops against Russia at all. I think Putin and Russia realized with Biden they had an excellent opportunity and they took it. Biden and NATO and the world isn't handing Putin/Russia anything IMO - Putin and Russia is doing what they want, how they want, on their time frame and everything that's happened so far I think falls right in with what Putin and Russia expected and planned
Very unusual take on things.

Slight correction- I said most qualified. 
I gave this post a like.  Not because I agree with you; I don't.  But because when I read @IvanKaramazov's, my immediate thought was "I definitely remember him saying most qualified candidate."  I also remember responding at the time that you clearly forgot about Bush 41.

“After Biden finished his speech, he turned around and tried to shake hands with thin air and then wandered around looking confused. “

the decline is right in the open , actually sad watching this guy being used like this


It really is irresponsible to have Harris as the VP...I don't know how anyone can see this clip (and there are plenty more examples of stuff like this) and not be concerned that if he gets to a point where he is not up to the rigors of the job someone as unqualified as Harris would become President...an absolutely frightening scenario.

I am not a Harris fan, but she was DA for one of the largest cities in the US for 8 years, AG for the largest state in the US for 8 years, and a US senator for 4 years. She may not be good as a VP, but she is certainly qualified.

Could not disagree with this more...you could use that line of thinking prior to her being on her current job...now that she has actually been in the VP position that stuff does not matter because her actual performance in this position and not a previous position is how we can base her qualifications.

:shrug:

I would put that more in the category of someone just not being good at their job more so than they lack qualifications. Either way - not sure it matters

Huh? What are you saying?  The Moops basically gave you her work history on why her previous experience should have transitioned her into this job.  Because she is sucking you're saying that experience doesn't count?

Outside of previously holding the VP job, what are you looking for in experience for a potential VP candidate?

Would probably help if you read what I wrote...I said prior to taking the job you could make a case that she could be qualified for the job but now that we have seen her in action it is very obvious she is not qualified...if it makes it easier to understand we could simply say she is not talented enough for the job regardless of her previous qualifications.

So how does average John Q citizen really evaluate the job a VP is doing?  Honestly I’ve never been able to determine how one was performing (R or D).  There’s to many variables, the first being what they are doing at the POTUS’s direction.   Now I’m not a Kamala fan so I can understand not wanting her in the big seat but that’s certainly not based on any evaluation of her job as VP.  

 
All the VP does is attend funerals and earthquakes. In what sense has Kamala Harris or anyone else ever been particularly good or bad at that? Okay, I guess Spiro Agnew was bad because you're also supposed to avoid doing crimes...
I would argue that **** Cheney was heavily involved in the Bush Presidency, particularly with regard to the war in Iraq. But he was a rare exception. Overall you’re absolutely right.

Objectively? Don't think it's possible. The job is to spin the policy coming down from above on the priority subjects you're assigned. Subjectivity I think she's been awful and despite that it doesn't matter.

Exactly, there no real way for us to know.  So it’s simply a matter of biases driving the opinions.

I find myself feeling sorry for him at times. He's got no business being a CEO much less our President & the leader of the free world.

Biden's cognitive abilities are the butt of international jokes for God's sake. His decline is steady. So much so that he might need to be put in "hiding" before the end of his term.

She's been put in charge of a couple of huge issues for our country.

Maybe unfairly.

Or, based on the funerals and earthquakes premise, those assignments were just BS

Either way, Americans lose.

I put many of my people “in charge” of things I still make the decisions on and set the direction for.  We have no clue how much Biden’s hand is on the wheel (or Trumps with Pence, or Obama with  Biden, etc etc).

True...some degree of typical BS

In the current case, a loss for Americans

 
Let’s look at what Biden has done at our southern border: he has removed many, though unfortunately not all, of Trump and Obama’s draconian restrictions which were violations of civil rights and a stain on our national honor. This has been a huge win for America, though in truth he could do more. 
 

Second: through no fault or action by Biden, the number of both refugees and illegal immigrants at our southern border has swelled in recent months. This is the result of a combination of chaos and poor economic conditions in Latin America and our growing economy and need for more migrant workers, particularly with the decline of the pandemic. The biggest criticism of Biden from the right is that he has done nothing to stem this tide.  But of course they desire a return to Obama and Trump’s discredited policies. Doing nothing, or very little, is the answer here because this is not a problem; it’s a good thing for America that these people are coming, and rather than stem the tide we should encourage it. Of course Biden can’t say that due to political realities so he looks ineffectual and weak. Democrats are terrible at messaging. But his inaction is good for America.

Biden’s border policies is going to cost the Dems senate/house seats starting with Mark Kelly.  The GOP is running ads that paint Kelly as a yes man for Biden.  Kelly is trying to distance himself from Biden, but illegal immigration is such a problem in AZ, no democratic will win any senate/house seat in AZ  Everyone I talk to in AZ thinks we have no control of our boarders anymore.  I get it that some states don’t care about but it, but in AZ it is issue number one with gas prices number two.

It wouldn’t surprise me. The public doesn’t agree with me about this issue. 

 
I approve of the way Biden is handling the midterms.  Hes blowing them up like hes going out in a hail of bullets and hes taking all the Dems down with him.

Cortez Masto is also behind in polling in NV.  If the D's lose the NV seat it's going to be a long night in November for them.  It's hard to see them losing NV without it being a total washout.

Biden’s mental abilities are declining steadily.  He will probably be hidden or step down in 12 months.   The US can’t continue to look weak with a confused old man posing as the most powerful leader in the world.

Like Reagan in his 2nd term, when he basically slept all day?

 
I wasn't into politics then, but I don't remember Reagan being nearly as bad off (cognitive-wise).
https://www.history.com/.amp/news/reagan-health-25th-amendment
 

The media — you know, that evil lamestream media — heavily protected him.   Lots of debate about how bad his mind was in the 2nd term, but enough details have come out over the years.

From the link:
The staff “told stories about how inattentive and inept the president was,” Cannon recalled to journalists Jane Mayer and Doyle McManus in Landslide: The Unmaking of the President, 1984-1988. “He was lazy; he wasn't interested in the job. They said he wouldn't read the papers they gave him—even short position papers and documents. They said he wouldn't come over to work—all he wanted to do was to watch movies and television at the residence.”

I don't remember any of that, but it seems as if people talk about Reagan as one of the better Presidents (I don't really have an opinion).

Biden won't have a 2nd term (thank God) & his party is surely not dumb enough to let him run again. They've just got to play it by ear & see at what point he needs to go in the bubble if/when it gets bad enough.

For all our sake, I hope he's at least got enough function left to not do something we can't fix in the next term.
