I was born at the end of October 1948 and my mom was still in the hospital so did not get to vote. She never forgave me - so she raised me a Democrat.
Hey it's not my fault they kept new moms in the hospital for over a week back then

Crap! They're covering the rebuttal. I'm looking forward to MSNBC tearing it apart - she said Biden is "out of touch" - did she see the same speech with all the standing ovations that we did??

At least that is what the M$M keeps bleating about.


Because, you know, they care more about eyeballs and ratings than actually telling the truth.

A "sky is falling" chicken little screeching brings in more viewers than "Don't worry, Biden will kill that other guy in November. The only way he will lose is if there are lots of shit that happens."

So, instead of crowing about Biden's "age" (which is a non-issue to me), how about you start shitting about all the things that the orange turd and his stupid minions will try to do to steal this thing away?

Oh, BTW, get off about the age crap, and cover real stuff. You know, like how one guy is facing 4... COUNT EM 4 .... criminal trials, and 91 criminal charges.

Just based on the crystal clear distinction of morality between the two parties which was highlighted by President Biden's very moral speech and Johnson's almost total obliviousness to the message.

Mike Johnson didn't know what to do except sit on his hands, and on rare occasions clap behind the cover of the podium so as not to piss off his base.

Thanks for the thread Autumn.
