Like how Joe said that Republicans were going to put blacks in chains. Unhinged hyperbole is what we can expect from 'Ol Joe (and his tribe).

And that will last until a day or two later max, when Trump will drop a beating on Biden with vicious counterpunching.

Remember when Ted Cruz won Colorado in the 2016 primaries. Remember when he, the TDS Republicans and the whole media were crowing about the "big victory" for Cruz that was going to turn the race upside down? And remember how less than 24 hours later, Trump had turned that into a Cruz loss, a victory for him, and actually is the moment he buried Cruz? All with counterpunching.

You guys keep thinking that a vulgar bombast like Trump is like other politicians who get negative press and then whimper about the high road when asked for comment. What about the last 3 years makes that belief possible I will never know, but if Biden goes solo and has a "let's bash Trump" event, it is going to end badly for Biden and the DNC.

I don't have a dog in this race, so allow me to be impartial and indirectly warn Biden off his erroneous course of action. Trump will not get beat with anti-Trump as a platform. The only way he gets beat is a platform of doing things for people and making him try to counter ideas that poll well.

Like tonight, Biden will say "China must be dealt with, but Trump is making it worse." Nowhere in that entire line of attack will Biden give you even a glimpse of anything he proposes to "do about China." Trump will be seen as doing something, ad Biden will be dropping empty critique with no plan of his own. Given the choice between nothing (Biden) and something (Trump), people generally choose something, even if it doesn't poll well. That's a major reason why incumbents don't lose that often. They are in the office doing things, and the challenger is simply criticizing and most often offering nothing of their own other than that criticism.

And tonight Biden will take that "offer nothing and just criticize" plan and romp the accelerator pedal on it. Nothing could be more foolish, particularly because of who he is attacking that way. It's just so misguided, but there's a reason Biden has never gotten the big boy chair.
how right you are. and how little time it took for the accuracy of this post to be demonstrated.

Trump says 'Joe Biden is a dummy!' and unleashes fury at Democratic front-runner he says is 'the weakest mentally' in the field as he leaves Washington for Iowa showdown

Quote:
'I like running against people that are weak mentally,' he told reporters at a Marine One departure. 'I think Joe is the weakest up here.'

Comming from Biden it's a compliment.

Anything else will just give him and his base more fuel for their dumpster fire.
100% this!

If Biden is the nominee, he will get my vote...but, I really wish he wasnít running. I donít like how heís running simply on being not-Trump. While that is certainly a plus, Iím hoping to get someone in office who will bring us new ideas and update some of our old laws. That ainít Biden.

So Biden is basically going to be Trump in reverse and sling mud at Trump?

I am not a Trump voter but it seems like bad strategy.

Biden's problem is during his political career before he became Veep his policies were the same as Trump today.
He will not be swinging mud at Trump, he will be telling the truth about him. Biden's presidency will be nothing like Trump's. Presidential dignity will return back to the office if Biden is elected.

To put it the way Harry Truman would:

“I won’t raise Hell. I’ll tell the truth and the Republicans will think it’s Hell.”
