    I at least fully agree we for sure don't need Trump another 4 years. But I also think we most definetely don't need Biden either. What is one to do, then? Maybe do away with the office of Presidency altogether since there appears to be no one worthy of this office?

    Easy enough. Go to the Queen, apologise for the Revolution, and ask her to appoint a governor.

    If there was a conservative Republican with the funding and support who was running, and who Trump wouldn't be able to obliterate, I would be behind that person 100%.

    Biden has been harshly criticized by the extreme left and the extreme right for his willingness to treat opposing people as humans and for his willingness to work with them.

    That's precisely what we need now.

    May they give courage to the cowardly who constitute the overwhelming majority of their colleagues.
    Most of the cowardly aren't stupid--They just think they have to hitch their fortunes to the death star.

    Not going to happen. The republican party made a deal with the white supremacists decades ago, and now they can't win without them. George Will sees a way for the party to survive:

    George Will: Republicans Will Forget Trump "Fairly Fast" When He Loses The Election
    George Will predicted President Donald Trump will lose reelection and the Republican party will have amnesia about the name Trump in the future. In an interview with MSNBC's Joy Reid on Wednesday, the syndicated columnist said he hopes Trump loses because the Republican party needs a "time out."

    "I'm fairly confident that he will be defeated, Mr. Trump will be defeated, in the election. And the next morning, a lot of Republicans will say, Trump? I don't recognize the name. They'll get over this fairly fast," Will said on MSNBC.

    "Our parties are very durable," he said. "Our two parties have formulated the political competition in this country since the Republicans first ran a presidential ticket in 1856. The Republican party will survive. What the Republican party needs like we parents say when dealing with an intractable child, it needs a timeout, and I think they're going to get one."
    George Will: Republicans Will Forget Trump "Fairly Fast" When He Loses The Election

    Will might be engaging in some wishful thinking here. He's grieving for the old libertarian, Buckley conservatism that was both principled and constitutionally-oriented. It would be good for the party and good for America, if he were to be right.

    She would get the joke and appoint Trump as governor for life.

    Trump winning the general election sidelined all the questions the party needed to be asking about the primary process which allowed him to win the primary. His primary win was very controversial.

    With Trump's leadership failing and Biden being too senile for the duties of the office, the media needs to look to the Libertarian party to give Americans a real choice.

    The more people hear from Biden, the more then like what they hear. Republicans seem to be unable to agree whether Biden is fiendishly clever and gets away with all sorts of conspiracies, or is too old to be competent. The first choice seems to have fallen apart, and now the second one seems like a really bad approach, given Trump's repeated cognitive difficulties, and Biden's public announcements.

    Maybe they'll come up with a third way...

    Do you remember the commercial: "She told two friends, and they told two friends, and so on and so on and so on?"
    George Conway, George Will, Mitt Romney, Lisa Murkowski have watched the parade and said, "The Emperor has no conscience! The Emperor has no morals! The Emperor has no compassion! The Emperor has no judgment! And so on, and so on, and so on." Courage is contagious. Common sense is contagious.
    And in the meantime, Lindsay Graham, Martha McSalley, Susan Collins, Joni Ernst, and even Mitch McConnell are really struggling in their Senatorial elections. Maybe their voters want integrity, not enabling.

    “The more people hear from Biden, the more then like what they hear. “

    I would have to disagree, the more people hear Joe Biden, the more they wonder what on earth is he talking about.

    Doesn't matter. The very thing extremists on both sides have assailed him for doing, reaching out to people with whom he disagrees, is precisely what America needs now. A we need someone who can unite us; people realize the damage that our divider-in-chief has done to America.

    It's not just him bungling the COVID-19 crisis.

    Trump and the Republicans know that once again they have no hope in winning the popular vote so their strategy is a replay of the 2016 Election whereby they obtain a majority in the Electoral college by winning 6 swing states - Arizona, Florida, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin!

    The problem is that this President has alienated independents, suburban women and many of the "black" Americans who stayed home in 2016 but will be far more motivated to vote in 2020 given the death of George Floyd - they should be more than enough to cover those thin electoral margins that provided Trump his victory!

    Google "Mourning in America." And then research it. As more and more republicans announce they won't vote for Trump, his support from ordinary republicans continues to decline.
