The Official Biden Presidency Thread

Let's get it started!!! I think this will definitely change the US for the better. It has to. It simply has to. 2020 can lick it and now we can look forward to a better 2021 and beyond...






Just for laughs...

Re: The Official Biden Presidency Thread, Part 1

I doubt we need to label this thread as Part 1. And that's a very good thing.

absolutely. slow and steady wins the race. that is how he and Harris conducted themselves and no reason to change now. only to change up the entirety of America, it's racial and social division and so much more to getting back to a healthier (in so many ways) nation for all!

Mods, please delete this thread. Someone can start the real one on January 20.

Spoiler:
I'm just funning with OldBoy, who so clearly desperately, desperately, desperately wants to be the starter of a thread in Politics Talk.

I have a feeling that Trump supporters are going to miraculously start posting in the Presidency thread again.

Re: The Official Biden Presidency Thread

I posted this in the Election thread but it's more appropriate here I think:

As a Biden voter, here is my pledge for this thread (and the forum as a whole) over the next four years (and change):
  • If I find the President's words or actions to be malignant or dangerous, I will not hesitate to call him out on it
  • If the President tells an obvious lie, I will not try to twist or defend it
  • If agree with the President's actions and words, I will back up my opinion with verifiable facts
  • Even if the prevailing option is against me, I will not boycott or leave the forum
  • And above all, I will never, EVER, try to defend the President's actions with "whataboutism"

Re: The Official Biden Presidency Thread

Character always matters to me (regardless of party). And while I think I'll disagree with a lot of what President-elect Biden will propose (even though I cast a positive vote for him), I see both Biden and Harris as being people of good character (not saintly perfection) and I won't let my cynicism about politics undercut their efforts. I'm looking forward to discussing solutions to the problems this country faces so that everyone can move forward.

This! Basically I will see what's going on here and there, but not have to be constantly paying attention to see what stupid shit he is saying.

Re: The Official Biden Presidency Thread

My wife left to run some errands and called me to put our flag out, saying she saw some out. I went out to hang my flag and saw my neighbor, who just put his up, taking a picture of it...He looked over at me hanging mine and I waved (I don't really know them).

By the time I was inside I lost it. I didn't cry when Trump won. But fuck, I am sitting here crying that Biden won. That that is the best fucking thing all year.

Re: The Official Biden Presidency Thread

One great thing, because of Trump's pettiness President Biden will be able to host President Obama for his portrait unveiling.

I remember reading Laura Bush talking about how touched she was with how Obama handled W's unveiling. He had W's large extended family at the White House, had a special lunch for the family, arranged for the WH staff that served during W's term to have a meet and greet with the family and other things. Basically, Obama acted with class and decorum.

Same here. Just get shit done and make sure that these Nazis get what they deserve, including not being able to sniff any position in politics again

I agree of course, but with 2020, it wasn't a high bar to clear. Hell, the pizza guy throwing in an order of garlic breadsticks for free was probably the SECOND best fucking thing all year.

Biden wins, and I just checked the mail and my Canada pension has been approved after over 6 months of wrangling over a period when I lived/worked overseas and they kept giving me the wrong damn form to fill. Maybe I'm beginning a positive streak!

Congrats. I've always wondered how much BS I'll have to go through with CPP (and how much I'll actually get) because I've worked/lived in the US for periods of time. Guess I'll find out when I retire.

I live about a mile from the White House. I just walked down there and I have never seen such a festive atmosphere in this city -- and I was here for a Stanley Cup win and a World Series win. The streets are overflowing with joy.

Also on Groucho's rules for himself. I'm down with that.
