This week @POTUS struck a serious deal to cut drug prices for people on Medicare and fight climate change, received a stellar July jobs report, shrank the unemployment rate to 3.5%, eliminated bin-Laden’s successor, & gas prices fell to a 50+ day low. Great week, Mr. President!
Welp, per AAA the average price of a gallon of regular unleaded in the U.S. is now 90 cents lower than it was in mid-June.
If you say "But Biden had nothing (or little) to do with that!"--I will likely agree. But I will accept that statement only from people who acknowledge that he, like every other POTUS, had little or nothing to do with the previous *increases*. A little consistency would be nice.
So how patriotic is this Nonequal guy? Who does he compare to patriotically?
It's very severely exponential.
Dick Cheney bashed Trump pretty bad, Gary Disco. Excoriationism. He doesn't like Trump. Cheney can bash. Bash it up.
Any relation to Dick Cheney the war criminal?
What other US leaders do you consider war criminals?
Actually, Liz is more likely to run as an independent. Or maybe she will be the nominee of the Forward Party.
Either way, if she runs against Trump she will get more votes than him.
Is he going to give him a sucker and tousle the hair on top of his head ?
If we're going to be consistent, which of course we should, some of Clinton's "Attaboy!" there is awfully similar to the reflexively anti-Biden crap we get on this thread.
The truth, I think, is that - perhaps against the wishes/intentions of the founders - we make too much of a deal of the president - all presidents. We don't just see them as really senior public servants....but rather as "POTUS !!!" I think that that's at least a little bad. And silly.
Bad, for among many other reasons, because it leads very serious and thoughtful people to wonder IF we should prosecute a president for crimes? WTF?
And silly - which can very easily cross over into bad - when we give them credit or criticism for things a knowledgeable citizen should know we shouldn't. Like, say, tons of economic/market things (freakin' tenths of a percentage point changes in unemployment, dozens of cents change/gallon on gas???), the freakin' execution of special ops missions on the other side of the world, etc., etc.
All told, we should probably think and talk about the position a lot less than we do.
Biden blamed Putin for the price hikes and he should be praising Putin for the price drops. Where's Biden's consistency?
Well played, sir.
Shoot, I forgot perhaps my favorite: "I was president when a Supreme Court justice died or retired. Impressed, yet?? Then, being able to draw on the advice of large number of experts (just like virtually ALL of my decisions), I picked what seemed to be the most reliably liberal or conservative person."
Sorry, we just shouldn't be too impressed - at all - by plain luck followed by a very well-informed choice/guess. Get a supreme court justice "right"? Big deal. Get it wrong? A shame, sure, but it almost certainly means that the person "fooled" a whole lot of experts, and it's not much of hit on the president.
Although.....that one lady that Bush Jr. tried to pick. OK, that WAS embarrassing.....and perhaps a fair negative reflection on him.
Yep, he can bash it up and he's a great marksman too- a friend of his got it in the face!

Another nugget of good news concerning the Inflation Reduction Act.
When Sinema killed the closing of the carried interest loophole, she inserted a 1% excise tax on share buybacks. She also got about $5 billion for drought relief.
Closing the loophole was going to bring in $14 billion. But the new excise tax will bring in $74 billion.
So it looks like Sinema reduced the deficit quite a lot, and also got important drought funding.
$74 billion - $14 billion - $5 billion = $55 billion
That's $55 billion in extra deficit cutting on top of what was already there.
It would be more accurate to call this the "Deficit Reduction Act" rather than the "Inflation Reduction Act".
Regardless, it's a very good bill and here's to hoping it passes the Senate by Monday.
Plus 10% for the big guy.
