Rice: ultra smart, well spoken, foreign policy maven, annnnnd Bengazi

Whitmer: Midwest, tough, 'white', and.........

Harris: junkyard dog tough,,, did I say junkyard dog tough?? Progressive enough but not to freak out whatever 'white' voters have worries about "ultra radical" left policies.

We'll see what Joe values, and how much he values just WINNING.

I think he painted himself into a corner and has to pick a woman of color. I think it'll be Abrams. I think that would seal the deal and turn Georgia blue.

I hope people are paying attention. Trump signed several executive orders last night.

One would to eliminate the payroll tax that is used to fund social security and Medicare. While he doesnít have the authority to do this without the consent of congress, it shows that despite all his talk, his real goal is to destroy the social security and medicare programs.

Another one diverted money from FEMA to give the unemployed $400 in additional benefits. While I agree with providing additional unemployment benefits, taking funding from FEMA in a year where scientists are forecasting twice the number of hurricanes that we will receive is short sighted. (I guess he is treating hurricanes like COVID-19, ignore the scientists and hope it goes away).

He said if heís re-elected heíll make doing away with the payroll tax permanent. Thatís how Social Security is funded. Heís such a moron he probably doesnít even know that, but the turds who work for him and his crummy billionaire friends he listens to who want to stomp the poor surely do. Biden and the rest of the blue campaign PACís need to we papering this on the airwaves, especially in states with high numbers of retirees like Arizona and Florida.

Paul Begala was promoting his book in a couple of appearances and he honed in on exactly this point. Itíll be political malpractice of the highest order if they fail to drive this point home hourly, daily, and weekly.

Social Security is the most popular government program ever, he knows congress won't approve. Just a smoke screen, more red meat for his base and something he won't have to defend since it won't pass.

If he succeeds in giving the Executive dictatorial powers through fiat by Executive Orders, then Congress may not have a say in the matter. Thatís the danger of having a fascist POTUS and McConnell packing the courts with his unqualified toadies.

That’s not red meat for his base. This is the only retirement most of the mouth breathers have. And they know it.

His base knows it? Low income conservatives do not understand how taxes work
