    If this virus gets rid of Trump, builds the cross party desire to have socialized healthcare, and gets us back to believing in science, it might need a day of honoring

    From Wikipedia...

    Bush began his presidency with ratings near 60%. In the time of national crisis following the September 11 attacks, polls showed approval ratings of greater than 85%, peaking in at 92%, and a steady 80–90% approval for about four months after the attacks.

    I don’t believe that W’s approval rating after Katrina was over 90%.

    This is how the democrats need to disseminate their policy goals to combat GOP propaganda. Easily digestible info that can’t be twisted/spun.

    The pain that guy must feel in order to cause his level of projecting at age 73.

    Was just thinking this morning that the Dems way of handling this PR for these bills at the moment is reminiscent of the GOP’s classic play—when the other people are in charge, no one remembers who hamstrings a process, they remember it was goat fucked by the people in charge.

    At some point they surely need to go on the ad and rhetorical offensive, but the public’s memory for this type of shit is frustratingly short, see: every awful thing you recall Republicans doing in the past 10 years alone

    The democrats have hamstrung themselves by rallying behind a presidential candidate that isn't up to the task of being the rhetorical counter to Trump's daily press conferences. In an election year, the presumptive nominee should be the one out there beating the drum for the party's POV. The best counter we have right now is Andrew Cuomo and he's a little too busy to actually make the partisan argument right now.

    Not to beat a dead horse but Bernie or Liz would be amazing right now and the base is begging for leadership. The fact that Cuomo has come out of nowhere to get this buzz is telling.

    Andrew Cuomo also has firsthand credibility of running the response to the state being most impacted by covid. The things he’s saying dont come off nearly as partisan when someone has that much skin in the game.

    Biden should be doing more, I agree. Namely taking about his work in ebola and swine flu and contrasting this response. Simple things. I just don’t think you’re giving credit to these governor and local leaders’ ability to criticize without being called partisan hacks.

    Sorry, in which day do you mean wrt to my post?

    People need to be taking this president to task over stalling for 1.5 months, but specifically re the stimulus, I think my point remains that we’d be raging over how the public won’t remember its mcconnell fucking the process (if the powers in congress were reversed).

    Biden’s staying out of the spotlight because he’s going to call his wife his daughters name again and at this point the only thing he can do to lose to Bernie is stepping on his own feet

    Kudos Chuck if true. It'll be telling if Trump refuses to sign it now.

    WASHINGTON ― The Senate’s $2 trillion package aimed at reducing the economic damage caused by the coronavirus pandemic appears to ban businesses controlled by President Donald Trump and his family from receiving taxpayer assistance.

    A provision in the bill prohibits businesses controlled by the president, vice president, members of Congress, and heads of executive departments from receiving loans or investments from U.S. Treasury programs. The prohibition also applies to their children, spouses, and in-laws, according to a summary from the office of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.)

    That’s more difficult when there are millions of people in a state. Someone ostensibly in charge of nothing has a bigger target on them.

    E: honestly would be great for Biden to cozy up to Dewine and praise him where he’s doing well, and criticize the trump admin where warranted. Of course, we saw Dewines own rhetoric this week that he fears trump, so maybe this isn’t possible.

    There are hundreds of millions of people in this country and it’s been the Republican playbook for years - amped up under Trump to preposterous levels. Objective truth is dead. There is only partisanship.

    Not sure the terms of this, but this made me happy...

    The stimulus bill also has a provision that would block President Donald Trump and his family, as well as other top government officials and members of Congress, from getting loans or investments from Treasury programs in the stimulus, according to Minority Leader Chuck Schumer's office.

    As soon as he signs that bill into law, Trump will have Barr and the DOJ fighting to overturn that portion of it.

    I fully understand the thought process, but it would be for everyone to see.

    The reality is that had he put all his businesses in a trust or sold them off like others did, we would not even be int his problem. This can never happen again.

    Actually, I can hear it now. Trump is going to get up there and talk about how he didn't take a diiiiime. Of course we know somehow money will be thrown to him from some foreign bank through some sideways deal.

    When has this ever stopped him. He collided with Russia in the open. He extorted Ukraine in the open. He’s fighting to strip people of their predicting conditions protections right in the open. Everything he has ever done is right there for everyone to see (except his tax returns).

    He just lies and 40% of America accepts it and the media shrugs.
