are we a dictatorship? our federal government by design, doesnít have one manager who makes all the calls.

the legislature is also powerful, as are the states.

You're lying, or amazingly ignorant. Biden said it was hysterical and xenophobic. Pelosi introduced a bill in the House to undo the travel restrictions, even Chris Cuomo pans her for that.

Where in Gods name do you get your news?

clearly not where you get yours

Itís true that Biden has referred to Trump and some of his statements and actions in the context of his handling of the coronavirus outbreak as ďxenophobic.Ē But itís unclear whether Biden was specifically referencing Trumpís travel restriction on China, as Trump has claimed.

Why wait a few weeks when the Court is in session now with an overload of cases. One was just decided with a 4 and 4 split. That decision is an excellent "conservative" articulation for confirming as soon as possible. And restoring the court to 9 Justices is not "packing" it. You are a master at the propagandistic trick of shading the meanings of words so that they appear to be accurate rather than deceitful. You do that a lot. Precision in diction is not your friend.

The unfathomable thing about the four justices siding w PA Republicans tonight: they wouldíve stripped a state supreme court of the authority to say what the law is in their own state.

Thatís way beyond right field.

Itís judicial activism on steroids.

It's interesting, you're all very critical of Trumps handling of the virus (which again, may be fair...maybe he deserves an F on that issue, I'm just not sure, I feel like I'm always playing catch up, but I'm not blindly defending him). Yet when I ask you guys what he should have done differently in December/January, based on what we knew then, I don't think any of you has come up with one single thing he should have done differently.

Which means you give him an F because you hate him, but you don't know why.

We basically shut the country down, and everyone is wearing masks and social distancing. Many countries didn't go nearly that far. What more was he supposed to do?

so we should have passed a bill overturning the travel restrictions? Yet you say he didn't do enough?

In other words, no matter what he does or doesn't do, it's wrong, because he's Trump. Why not just admit that you're all that thoughtless?

Why this is just like Deja vu all over again🥱



Biden, Jan. 31: America needs a president they can trust, especially at times of a crisis. You know, we have right now a crisis with the coronavirus, emanating from China. A national emergency, you know, worldwide alerts. The American people need to have a president who they can trust what he says about it, that he is going to act rationally about it. In moments like this, this is where the credibility of a president is most needed, as he explains what we should and should not do. This is no time for Donald Trumpís record of hysteria, xenophobia Ė hysterical xenophobia Ė and fearmongering to lead the way instead of science.

Now perhaps you may assign superhuman powers to Biden and assume that he did this within an hour of Azar announcement of travel restrictions to start February 2nd.

But actually all you need to do is look at Covitaís tweets during the time of concern about Ebola and you can see why Biden had concerns about the ability of the current President to mount a coherent defense against a national threat.
Thereís more than 220 Thousand people dead now and Tweetyís still saying it going away

Your taking this to seriously, go vote and roll the dice. I guess no room for humor on this very serious board.

Jim stop looking in the rear view mirror
Thats all Trump has ever done with covid after that hes been wishing it away... meanwhile were 20% of the worlds covid deaths and counting but we've rounded the Bend?

Look at the last 30 days

you're all very critical of Trumps handling of the virus (which again, may be fair...maybe he deserves an F on that issue, I'm just not sure



Your not sure? Do you hear the words that spill from his mouth?

A lot of traditional Republicans are really tearing into trump TDS can't always be the excuse.. can it?

"Jim stop looking in the rear view mirror"

You're the ones saying he did a lousy job...

"Your not sure?"

In terms of the virus, I'm not sure what we should have done differently. Some nations didn't do lockdowns and are doing OK. Should we have gone that route? I don't know.

For the 5th time, what should he have done differently in the beginning, based on what we knew then? Not one of you can come close to answering that.

In other words, you say he did a lousy job, but can't give ONE SYLLABLE of what he should have done differently. Not one syllable.

I'm rolling the dice? As opposed to voting for a guy with dimentia, who might have to turn the reigns over to a whore who couldn't get over 5% even in the democratic primaries? That's what you call a safe bet?

YouR “leader” of choice has thrown in the towel, without “officially” endorsing a herd immunity policy, that’s exactly what his continued irresponsible rhetoric is doing. We are tired of the idiots like Dr, Fauci and the other medical experts. Unless your living in a bubble the virus is about to shove reality right back in his science denying face. Mid west hospitals are strained to the limit, Europe who was always weeks ahead of us is in various stages of lockdown and your “I did everything right” guy is in denial. Either that or he knows the countries focus on Covid and his miserable handling will cost him the election and I can’t wait to see him escorted out.
