    Joseph Robinette Biden Jr.


    According to wiki -

    Any Senatorial highlights?
    As a senator, Biden was a longtime member and eventually chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee. He opposed the Gulf War in 1991 but advocated for U.S. and NATO intervention in the Bosnian War in 1994 and 1995, expanding NATO in the 1990s, and the 1999 bombing of Serbia during the Kosovo War. He argued and voted for the resolution authorizing the Iraq War in 2002 but opposed the surge of U.S. troops in 2007. He has also served as chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, dealing with issues related to drug policy, crime prevention, and civil liberties, as well as the contentious U.S. Supreme Court nominations of Robert Bork and Clarence Thomas. Biden led the efforts to pass the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act and the Violence Against Women Act.

    What did he do as Veep?
    As vice president, he oversaw infrastructure spending to counteract the Great Recession and helped formulate U.S. policy toward Iraq through the withdrawal of U.S. troops in 2011. His negotiations with congressional Republicans helped the Obama administration pass legislation including the Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization, and Job Creation Act of 2010, which resolved a taxation deadlock; the Budget Control Act of 2011, which resolved that year's debt ceiling crisis; and the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012, which addressed the impending fiscal cliff. Obama and Biden were reelected in 2012.

    Commence the shit-show...

    Re: Joseph Robinette Biden Jr.

    I just want someone who's not a complete shithead, can form a somewhat reasonably coherent sentence at least 25% of the time, won't run the country into the ground and won't continue making us a global laughing stock...

    In case it wasn't obvious enough, we do not have that right now.

    I know that's setting the bar awfully low, but that's how far Trump has pulled it down to and I don't think Biden will be able to crawl under it.

    You forgot about how he puts his hands on the shoulders of little girls. Obviously a pervert, and so BOLD about it by doing it in front of 20 or 30 cameras.

    Re: Joseph Robinette Biden Jr.

    How will he play his position on abortion? I doubt it gains him any support from the religious right either way but it may be a factor with hardline abortion access and funding voters. Always seems to be a hot button and heís got an interesting voting record on the topic.

    He's also got diehard Pro-Lifer's saying people should sacrifice themselves to Covid-19 to help the economy.

    Biden has a playbook short, sweet, and justified that can rip holes in a lot of bullshit positions the right has been spewing for years due to this pandemic and it's response.

    I'll vote for anybody after who's conference there isn't a National debate on what the person really meant who doesn't go on twitter the next day saying

    "Psyche, JK. Gotcha. Back to dying as normal, I'll be serious next week, I promise. XOXO. Stay tuned. Biggest conference viewing numbers ever. Numbah Juan!!"

    Full disclosure. Could care less for Biden. I would have rather voted for some of the other previous RNC candidates over these 2.

    1. Don't make everything be about himself.

    2. Be clear, concise, and consistent.

    3. Be realistic with promises and aspirations. Speak truth.


    If he does that, Trump will have a hard time beating him after this pandemic response. It's really shown in lives/economic figures what a fuckup this turd is.

    #1 is going to be tough on abortion, itís HIS record. 2 and 3 will be key or Trump is going to eat his lunch.

    I like pissing off conservatives by inventing and using the term, “Presumptive President Elect”.

    It's possible to discuss the pros and cons of someone without having to compare them to someone else

    Well, maybe not on NESR, but in theory.

    My guess?

    Possibly Warren, possibly (hopefully) Sanders but I feel that's even less likely...

    It'll probably someone far less polarizing... like a Wacky Waving Inflatable Arm Flailing Tube Man.

    But when you are presented (at this stage) with a choice between two (NOT IN DREAM LAND, PHIL) presidential contenders, that's what you end up having to do.

    I'd guess Harris. Ex-prosecutor, woman, minority.
