Biden's coup-de-grace. 10-15-2020

Staying behind to answer even more questions after the regularly-scheduled town hall discussion is a brilliant move on Biden’s part. Well done!

Who’s sleepy?
Who’s suffering from dementia?
Who’s NOT infected with COVID?
Who actually cares about the concerns of the American people?

All those questions are answered by Biden’s extra-inning performance tonight. He’s already knocked the ball out of the park. Now he’s just running up the score. And he’s still answering questions ...

1. This is who Joe Biden is....

And those who are witnessing this will tell other people about it. About how Joe listened to them, showed respect, talked with them, not talking them down.

2. Not much for the Trump team to pick apart. In fact there was nothing.

Joe was on top of it totally tonight. Trump was Trump.

30. Adding more Justices is one thing. The Republicans are PACKING .

The Courts with people of their IDEOLOGY rather than upholding the rule of law and the US Constitution.

8. I know.

Barack Obama warned Kamala Harris of this habit and complained (affectionately) about Joe often running late because he gets caught up “talking to the people,” but his “being himself” tonight was particularly effective because it’s televised, and it draws a sharp contrast between him and the lazy, sick, narcissistic turd that doesn’t give a crap about anything except himself.

7. Great assessment of the two...

From Tom Nichols:

The only good thing about these two competing town hall events is that they show how much Biden is held to a different standard as an actual rational human being while Trump just has to get through an hour without lighting a bucket of mice on fire

10. It appeared that he was going person by person to allow each and every one to ask a question

so that he could provide them answers to supplement his responses to those who were selected to actually ask their questions "on air".

24. Of anything last night

the fact that he stayed and chose to do that (and fortunately ABC showed that he did that), will hopefully be impactful for those folks who were there and they will have discussions about it with their own families and friends and coworkers.

Joe Biden is even stronger than I had hoped for. He is entering this phase of his career in a great way. I delivered my ballot today, and am both proud and honored to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket (as well as for Rep. Anthony Brindisi, who I have a very high opinion of).

..know what was really nice watching town hall..that odious vulgar, hideious man wasn't there spewing rw propaganda and lies, racist dog whistles. He did us all a favor by not showing up--gave Biden time to talk directly to the American electorate.

It was breath of fresh air, a respite of paz for once-- listening to Biden's calming assurance that we will get through these trying times together.

20. Bit of a thought really.

And maybe this is a bit of a stretch?

But this Joe fella? Seems like a good slot in for the POTUS #46 position once #45 leaves office?

Where is Melania? Packing her bags yet? Junior members of the family panicking yet? Next drop off station for the gravy train is looming large.

Take nothing for granted though. GOTV!!

41. Indeed, on MSNBC just now they said he stuck around answering questions for another half hour.

Who does that?

Maybe someone who actually, sincerely, gives a damn - about someone else beyond himself?

I think we're so unaccustomed to that, by now, that it's not surprising some people react like they've never seen or heard of this kind of response before from a presidential candidate, much less experience it for themselves
