Biden is running a brilliant campaign.

He’s following the old adage about not getting in the way of a train wreck, and the Trump train just keeps wrecking.

He makes clear and on target public statements from time to time. Meanwhile, he is spending much less money and energy than he would have to in normal times, and there are fewer risks of gaffes, etc., for the media to pounce on with their double standards. And, donations are rolling in, he’s probably spending more time with potential donors behind the scenes than normal, and I have no doubt many more $ will come in as Election Day approaches. I dislike the system but he has to play it well to win.

And the polls keep looking good for him...

1. He just needs to shore up the coastline defenses for the next swift boat attack

Tara Reade seems to be swimming back out to sea, so that's good.

30. Odd and funny

I was just thinking about her yesterday and wondered about her twitter feed..meant to check it to see what she's been posting. Didn't get around to it. Anyone else keeping track of her? I still believe someone paid for her to come out with what she said after so many years of remaining silent. Follow the money!

I hope more than anything that he's in the white house come January!

Was in office, and that person said “no way” would Ms. Obama run for any office. Apparently, she disliked politics as much as many people do, but just happened to be extremely good at it.

3. The contrast between Biden's humble, hopeful messages and Trump's Klan rallies is so stark.

It acts like a Biden ad itself.

6. Outstanding strategy. We should call it "Biden our time!"

Let tRump finish taking down his own campaign and the rest of the GOP with him, while we sit back and watch them destroy themselves.


“In that case,” said Napoleon, “let us wait twenty minutes; when the enemy is making a false movement we must take good care not to interrupt him.”

This is WAY too early for celebration though.

The large majority of people dont even pay attention to any of this shit until mid October.

And I got a robocall to donate to him .

They are getting desperate to prop him up.

26. I saw an anti-Biden ad last night when I was watching a rerun

of Grant on the History Channel.

I thought that it was a really weird placement, considering that Grant helped us win the Civil War.

But if Trump wants to waste his money, go right ahead!

Got to keep their (very 'base') base energized and make it look like they're doing something.

12. Actual news is death to Donnie's only political strategy

Donnie's political career depends on being able to dominate the media with his twisted version of reality. In 2016, we weren't in a crisis, so the media was more than happy to cover made-up Hillary scandals and Donnie's self-promotion.

In 2020, however, there's a pandemic, a major recession, protests, supply chain problems, etc.

Too much real news means not enough airtime for Donnie to flood our attention with his warped defining of his opponent or himself, and it finally gets challenged. The economy is in shambles, there's too much of a gap between Donnie's boasting and reality.

His shtick doesn't work anymore.

13. The best way to tell his campaign is working

All the unsolicited advice he's getting from Fox and Trump. They are unanimous in complaining about Biden's campaign and its tactics, which signals to me that it's working. Their own polling is telling Fox and Trump just how effective Biden is being, and they're getting more and more desperate to knock him off his message. But this isn't Biden's first rodeo.

They all profit from dissension. Even our own bubbles.

The fact that he was confronted with a situation that no one else ever has been, and he is handling it perfectly is reason enough to vote for him.

31. I'd like to see better ads

I think the Lincoln Project has done far better ads. Trump has provided so much material, his own words could so easily be used against him, particularly in a mocking way, which we know triggers him more than anything.

I appreciate Biden’s presidential tone, something that has been sorely lacking and much needed. But taking a few sharp jabs would be good, too.

He can come in later with the pro-Biden "good guy" stuff. That's actually a good strategy.
