    They disliked Trump because they saw him as an illiberal twit who both wanted to withdraw from the world but also dictate what would happen. Working within global frameworks is...

    Biden's on record wanting out of Afganistan in Obama's 1st term. He got overruled. Also, economically we'll need to coordinate with Europe/ our SE asian friends in this. They happen to respect the current guy more than the former guy...

    The article is paywalled, but in Matt Yglesias's substack he shows why the Middle East used to be #1 in geostrategic importance. In the cold war we were a big oil importer and the Soviets could sweep in and cut us off from oil, crippling our economy. At the current time we're net exporters and China's...

    Sure, you're picking the most anti trump headlines contrasted with the most pro biden takes. The MSM articles/stories have been mixed from what I've seen. The issues I had with Trump foreign policy in general was how helter skelter it was, not general philosophy (if there was one)...

    If you actually read the Times you'd see stories pointing out concerns from the mil/hawks that Afganistan will turn into a terrorist haven in the medium term. You'd also know Biden disagreed with Obama and wanted us out in the Obama presidency....

    If you moved it to Rochester there's a good chance you get an all white jury significantly less likely to convict a cop in general. It'd be great for the defense....

    I generally go to NYT or the Economist for news. If I watch CNN it's Tapper, Zakaria, Blitzer, or Cooper. Lemon and Cuomo are annoying. Then again they're not in the Tucker, Hannity, Ingraham league. And again the straight news folks are higher quality than fox which wasn't the case say 10 or 20 years...

    Rachel Maddow is a left wing partisan. MSNBC runs left of CNN. CNN runs left of center. Fox inhabits an alternative fact zone and has continued to have less straight news people and more opinion folks over time. The segment in question pointed out vaccine hesitancy is coming from the fox demo. Celebrities...

    TV CNN is a rung below the top on straight fact and tilts left. Akin to the NY post/Reason melded. Fox TV is Daily Kos level. Like even beyond msnbc which is just special. CNN had a segment this morning about how 60 minutes botched the Desantis interview....

    You're equating fox and cnn? Biden can do what he wants on guns because the symbolic stuff he can do is polarizing at an 80:20 level. He's racking up high propensity suburban votes with his moves....

    The play is letting Ketanji Brown serve a term on the DC circuit and let her replaced Breyer (she clerked for him he's pretty open he wants her to take the seat). And the GOP wants a court fight for the same reason they want anything. It animates the base. If the base stays home in 2022 like it did...

    My point is he's not particularly wealthy. If he were dirty/diverting stuff to Hunter to cash in... he'd be a tad wealthier. Not saying he's "one of the people"....

    They wanted RBG to retire during Obama's 1st 2 years of term 2. From then until now there was no way RBG or Breyer would be replaced with a similar justice. If the dems lose the majority in the senate, Mitch can play 4 corners again and hold out for a Republican president. Biden though would probably...

    Biden's bet seems to be as long as he plays hard ball on things with broad approval no one will care he was partisan in 2022 and 2024. COVID, unemployment, and inflation are going to decide how he does. I think he's correct....

    Including his homes his net worth was 8 million on entering the White House. Prior to 4 years of speaking/book fees post VP it was lower. Old Joe doesn't have Audacity Of Hope money....

    Famous peoples' kids make money because of who their parents are. Donald launched an empire due to who his dad was. The Trump kids are rich in large part because of who their dad is, nothing to say about the money they got. That's not illegal, and it's not really something you can help.

    Cuomo has been neutered and the accusations need to be verified for impeachment to happen. The issue the elected dems have is he still has a political base, similar to the Trump impeachments.

    Hunter Biden is not a public official.

    Gaetz is a politics as entertainment not governing...

    YES THANK YOU.

    The GOP btw is better off if some of Gaetz's ilk in congress/Florida go away. They don't help win elections and they're not interested in governing....
