    A bit of overything, but they have not settled on their message for next 4 years... unless it’s bitching about social media...

    The fact that they were saying it before he even took office, is a different... but, pertinent point in it self...

    Just remembering all the "Trump is going to win b/c he has all the enthusiasm (crowd size) & Biden has none" takes & how incredibly wrong they were.

    Also strange that Rahm Emmanuel ended up getting 0% of the administration positions of the 100% The Hill's twitter feed indicated that he was Strongly Considered for.

    Ongoing In: Everything the Cosplay Socialists were wrong about.

    They spent the last five years swearing that the "Dem Establishment really hated Bernie's guts." Or that "Liberals hate Socialists more than Fascists".

    This is really about kids who grew up conservative, projecting their own authoritarian worldview onto Dems.
    Historically when authoritarians take power they immediately destroy the opposition. The Jacobins murder everyone not Jacobin enough. The Bolsheviks execute and send the remaining Mensheviks, Trade Unionists, Democratic Socialists to Siberia. Trotsky has to hide in the trunk of a car on his way to MExico.


    Democrats win power, "Ok Bernie can be Head of the Budget Committee."

    I cant wait until next week during Neera Tanden's confirmation hearing.
    Committee Chairman, "So Madam Tanden, what is your goal for the OMB?"
    M. Tanden, "To use the office of the OMB to help working class Americans."
    Committee Chairman, "Approved!"

    But the democrat establishment does have a problem with bernie and progressives what changed is that THE POLICIES ARE CLEARLY POPULAR AMONG THE PEOPLE AND THEREFORE IF THEY WANT TO MAINTAIN SUPPORT they need Bernie as part of that. Do not pretend the dem establishment just loves Bernie and his progressive policies that are detrimental to most of their pocketbooks.

    Which is a hilarious non-starter. For one, the only political capital they could possibly farm out of it is attempting to tie corporations like Twitter and Facebook solely to liberals. This will ultimately create a multi-layered problem for conservatives and their base, as it will drive said base to other platforms that are perceived to be “conservative friendly.”

    For another, it will silence stubborn conservative voices on more established platforms like the aforementioned Twitter and Facebook as they’ll be punished for pushing conspiracies, like, you know, T and FB being insidious liberal propaganda spreaders. Not that the modern GOP has any problem shooting itself in the foot as evidenced by years of catering to/coddling domestic terrorists and crazy shitbirds like Trump, but still.

    I think people have a warped view about how much will realistically change. Things are going to keep running as usual just with less twitter fights.

    Apparently the Trump Admin had no actual plan in place for vaccine distribution and the Biden Admin is going to have to build one from scratch


    On his first full day as President Biden will be issuing a slew of initiatives and a couple EOs regarding COVID

    I also hear hes looking at using the defense production act as well to assist with ramping up testing and vaccine distribution. Bidens gonna end up doing more to combat Covid in his first 24 hours than Trump did in the last 10 months.

    Enjoy your success. Trump was able to sabotage America to the point that 4200 Americans died. I know you were hoping for more, but I guess this will have to do.

    https://www.yahoo.com/news/worse-ima...100021175.html

    Title: ‘Worse Than We Imagined’: Team Trump Left Biden a COVID Nightmare

    Excerpts:

    The Biden administration came into power with purpose and an extensive agenda to combat the coronavirus pandemic, but purpose and planning only gets you so far—particularly when the president’s team is only just now getting a clear picture of how badly the previous administration had managed the crisis.

    “What we’re inheriting from the Trump administration is so much worse than we could have imagined,” Jeff Zients, the Biden administration’s COVID-19 czar, said in a call with reporters Wednesday. “We don't have the visibility that we would hope to have into supply and allocations.”

    And here is the first sentence of your response: Well I had a bit of a chuckle this morning.
    Over 4k people dying in a day makes you CHUCKLE.

    Basically, Trump mismanaged the federal virus response to the point that it is intentional negligence.

    Trump works hard to kill off as many Americans as possible. Then you brag about how successful he was and blame it on Biden.

    I think the fact that you find people dying funny says everything there is to know about your ilk.

    As expected, less than 24 hours in office and there are already some Republicans blaming him for west coast protests (which are practically a weekend passtime in Portland and Seattle) and COVID deaths.

    It's too bad so many people plugged exclusively into RW media just take it all at face value.

    Its a seasonal occurrence. Spending the the winter in a treehouse in the outskirts of Eugene is miserablé even for Anarchists. So they like to overwinter back at their parents places in Lake Oswego.
    While the parents are spending a few weeks at their condo at Mt Bachelor, the kids come up; do some smashy and raid the liquor cabinet.

    Read one take and seems true:

    The Trump administration was a hollow. Nothing to besisdes its racist policies.

    My goodness, this idiot helped contribute to at least 100k deaths,conservativaly speaking. Almost won a 2nd term.

    The sad part as quoted above if he super half-assed a effort on Corona, would have one a 2nd term.

    I think we need to stop calling Trump and his administration incompetent.

    They were malicious and just didn't give a shit. Trump playing golf every weekend, and Jared pushing an agenda to let "blue states" suffer under the effects of COVID with little federal assistance is proof enough of that.

    They were also malicious, but even when they did try and accomplish things, their incompetence got in the way.
