Re: US President Joe Biden

Biden is getting really bad. He recently stated the George Floyd issue had far greater impact around the world, at solving racism issue than, wait for it, Dr Martin Luther King. Seriously wtf?



And tonight, he’s given green light for Russia do a minor incursion in to Ukraine…. Putin must be grinning like a Cheshire Cat listening to the fool tonight.

Re: US President Joe Biden

Latest: U.S Democrat Senators fail in their bid to change filibuster rules that would have paved the way to pass certain bills with a simple majority rather than had 60 vote requirement. Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) were the only Democrats who voted against the rules change, No Republicans voted to support the reform, thus rendering U.S President Joe Biden’s and the Democrats ability to pass any legislation.

Re: US President Joe Biden

America is so screwed. The two parties literally just exist to stop the other from doing anything. The Republicans will get the Senate but are unlikely to get 60 senators so the same will happen to them (although I suspect the Republicans will get rid of the filibuster if they're in the majority)

Re: US President Joe Biden

How many times did Biden lose his train of thought here in this clip from last 24 hours?

When there are only 2 major parties?
Too many times with a proportional system, no government(Belgium for several months at a time), constantly changing government(Italy), or a government you can never vote out(Merkel).

Re: US President Joe Biden

I think a big problem with the United States is that their own parties are increasingly hostage to a loud, angry, base of supporters who get radicalised by news outlets and social media companies who know this is profitable for them.

I think the base instinct of most of them is to compromise and be somewhat moderate but the US system is almost too democratic so any politician is beholden to a small activist base to get elected. So any Democrat or Republican who wishes to act in a bipartisan way will face a primary challenge for doing so. Some Republicans are facing primary challenges for signing off on Biden being elected President rather than overturning it.

The Electoral College adds a layer into the voting for the President and VP which was part of the problem in the last election.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United...ollege#Summary

Quote:
Even though the aggregate national popular vote is calculated by state officials, media organizations, and the Federal Election Commission, the people only indirectly elect the president and vice president. The president and vice president of the United States are elected by the Electoral College, which consists of 538 electors from the fifty states and Washington, D.C.

Re: US President Joe Biden

There was a brilliant clip of Joe biden standing next to his wife at a podium and an ice cream van drives by in the background and off goes Joe leaving his wife standing there. He is very clearly not cognitively healthy and is not fit for office unfortunately the only person less fit for office is his VP.

He does seem to have a thing about ice cream, and he did wander off briefly.
