I think a lot of people have not grasped the concept that you usually dont have the luxury of voting for a good candidate but of having to vote against a terrible candidate. And due to the nature of the beast there have been very few non terrible candidates over the last 150 / 200 years. I can only think of four that had any kind of positive reasons to vote for them. The two Roosevelts; Truman and Eisenhower. And Chester Arthur if he had been renominated. A couple more were sort of positive. Grant. Hughes, Hoover, Wilkie, Dewey, Ford, Bush II. But pretty much all the rest were a contest between bad and much much worse. Tilden / Hayes; Nixon / Kennedy; Gore / Bush; Obama / McCain; Clinton / Trump etc…
Yeah, sure Trump is unfit to be president. In normal times. But these are not normal times. And when the alternative is the Clintons and the Bidens of the world then its going to be the Orange Man every time. It may come as a surprise to some here, given their seemingly exceptionally narrow range of sources of information, but the Orange Man has actually been the most effective first term president since Reagan. And before Reagan you had to go back to FDR and then TDR to find presidents who actually shook things up as much as Trump did. In a good way. Wilson, Kennedy and Obama certainly shook things up. But in various disastrous ways.
So given that the Dems are already wargaming for loosing the election I’m not looking forward to what happens next. The only thing that could be worse than a second Orange Man term is the Dems actually winning. Biden was a pathetic candidate in 1988. He has not aged well. And Harris always was and always will be Willie Browns political fuck puppet. Her well deserved reputation around City Hall is total dirt. People like her only look good when compared to rich kid kiddie lawyers like Chesa Boudin. Who should have his day in front of a Civil Grand Jury sooner or later for gross official malfeasance. The dont teach state constitutional law in Yale it seems.
Anyway, you just hold you nose and vote to the least worst choice of a really really terrible selection. It could be worse, I suppose. it could be Van Buren / Harrison, Buchanan / Fremont / Fillmore, Coolidge / Smith or worst of all, Nixon / McGovern. So not quite the worst choice in election history. But close.
