I read the news today oh boy! Page 2,797

Trump just stood there and lied and lied and lied about everything - and CNN let him get away with it

One e.g. he said in some democratic states they terminate babies - AFTER they have been born

F**king idiot

It's too late for them, the time to do it was a year ago at least. They backed him, undoubtedly thinking the Democrat backed witch trials of Trump were enough for Biden to sail through. But Trump is standing even stronger because of the sympathy at the lynching he's had, and Biden has gone down hill.

If they enter a new younger, fitter candidate at the 11th hour it will cause an almighty uproar, kill their credibility, and they will lose anyway. They've messed their campaign up with outrageous complacency and a Lofthouse-like obsession with hating Trump, and heads should roll.

FGS, Trump's conviction was not Democrat-backed and certainly hasn't boosted his standing. Quite the opposite. He is very lucky the Supreme Court has pushed his other three trials until after the election.
But Biden must stand down now. The debate was a total disaster. Trump is a dangerous and unpopular figure and cannot be allowed to win. Biden is no longer up to the task of beating him. He must go now.

dislike for democracy.

Of course a lot of people aren't even aware that Biden has had a stutter all his adult life

For the young Joe Biden, few things were as daunting as speaking in front of his class.

A student at Catholic school, Biden struggled with a stutter -- a speech condition that, at the time, was often regarded as a sign of low intelligence.

The mockery was sometimes fierce, including from a nun who was his teacher.

The bullying Biden endured on account of his stuttering would prove to be formative.

Equally formative would be Biden's efforts to manage his stutter. Determined to overcome it, Biden took action in a way that would define his approach to life and politics: Just keep pushing. If you fail, try again. Work hard. Persevere.

"Biden would stand in front of his bedroom mirror holding a flashlight to his face and he would recite Yeats and Emerson," says John Hendrickson, a senior editor for The Atlantic who has profiled Biden and who stutters himself, describing a method Biden used to bring his stutter under control and gain confidence.

Biden's pushing would pay off. Eventually, the boy who had been bullied at school became president of his senior class.

"Many people would say Biden's stutter is among his most visible weaknesses, if not number one," Hendrickson says. "But it's also a source of his strength"

Best will in the world, none of that matters.
The Democrats need someone new, sharpish.

Too late

Far too late

Biden took a massive gamble and there is a pretty good chance its gonna backfire

if Trump wins he will 100% be on a revenge mission , he will have people concoct all sorts of made up shit and have Biden in courtrooms - courtrooms in Republican states with Trump appointed judges

Good luck with that Joe

You do dislike democracy. I don't !
I want Trump to lose democratically. Trump himself tried to overturn the last election.
You didn't want our election to happen because you don't like elections and don't want Labour to win.

Definitely not too late! He'll have to go. And soon.

Its too late for him to be 'pushed'

Never too late for him to voluntarily drop out

He won't do that, he's quite arrogant

He's already blaming the debate on a simple head cold

Trump will win and lots of people will be happy and lots not.
At least you'll know it's his policies and not backroom puppeteers running the show.

Speaking of which, this is so clever and SO funny............the best bit is at the end

It's a disaster for the Democrats, they didn't listen to the concerns that were there two years ago and put some contingency plan in place, and now their man's decline has accelerated alarmingly at just the wrong time, he's a walking vote loser and no new candidate choice will have the time to build up a support to match Trump's. The irony is I don't think many of either party's politicians are happy with the leader they've got, but that's democracy for you.

This is a real problem. It's not too late for Biden to pull out though.

He says he won't - or rather his wife does.
She's really enjoying being first lady and that old duffer is not going to stop her.

I think maybe their best option is to get a doctor in to say his overall health is not up to the rigours of campaigning and possibly 4 more years as Pres, and he needs to retire. That way there's some dignity left for him. But yes they have to bite the bullet and deselect him as they can't possibly win with him. An awful of of Americans don't want Trump in again so they still have a chance of stopping him, but they have to act fast with just 4 months to go.
