President Biden and Donald Trump Only Want to Run Against Each Other in 2024

[QUOTE]Biden told aides that he’s more likely to run in 2024 if Trump announces his candidacy. However, Trump also is more likely to commit to a 2024 run if Biden announces a reelection bid.

Biden is so delusional. He’s shaking hands with imaginary people, has been annihilated in the polls, and can’t figure out if Kamala is VP or the First Lady yet only he can take down Trump.

If he really worried about the harm Trump could cause, he would step down. This is just about the ego of a hungry, sad old man to whom the world is not enough.

Step down for what, R9? So Kamala can run the country?

I am so sick of this Biden is senile BS. Anyone that watched the debate or the recent WH Correspondents dinner can tell he is still there mentally. The stutter has always been a thing and doesn’t deter from his mental capacity. If you were filmed 24/7 I’m sure there would be plenty of “gaffs” that strung together could make anyone look out of it.

Oh piss off Mary at R9. It’s not delusional or trolling to say that a President with abysmal approval ratings may lose to a former President with a strong base in a country that is becoming increasingly more conservative. Alternatives should be pursued by rational, strategic adults and they will be.

Don’t you worry. You’ll get your marching orders from them soon enough, most likely before you have to engage in any critical thinking or develop a nuanced ideological perspective beyond blinding believing everything is 100 and silencing any dissenters.

You would’ve made a terrific Nazi.

I love Biden. And I think he's doing a damn good job considering all that he's been up against. But the idea of another round of Biden/Trump showdown just feels like the total wrong move. And Biden just doesn't seem to be connecting with anybody except me!

I am not really a third party guy. If the candidate is actually viable as a lefty stand in? All it would do is hurt us. (Just like Perot, a viable right wing stand in, hurt the reps in 92.)

But man, now would be the time for a once in a hundred year candidate to appear, like Athena, fully formed, to swoop in and change our rather depressing American narrative.

I can’t tell you how glad I and the rest of the world are not to see Donald Trump’s ugly face below the headlines every fucking day, wondering what new madness and chaos he’s causing now. I think every sane individual is still recovering from the four years of constant anxiety caused by that narcissistic sociopath on his crusade to absolute power (don’t like the election result?! It was fake news like everyone else we don’t like). He needs to just die now.

R11, for me, I don't care what one's political affil. is, when they use the "dementia" line because they're not using it as an actual medical diagnosis, they're using it as an insult, and that infuriates me.

Unfortunately, I know firsthand the hell of dementia and I genuinely hope that those of you who use it as insult, end up with a loved one having the disease because when that loved one looks at you and has no idea who you are or forgets how to eat or to dress themselves, then you'll hate yourself for using that as some cruel way to insult your opponent.

Anyone who knows a person with dementia could only wish to have them have whatever "dementia" you think Trump or Biden has.

Of course your mental state gets progressively worse as you get older - that's a given. What I loathe is "dementia" being used as a cudgel. It's used out of cruelty by the person using it, not out of actual concern.

by Anonymousreply 67July 11, 2022 1:14 PM

My take on OP's link is that Biden thinks he needs to run if Trump does because there is no other obvious Democrat who could win. He thinks he could because he already has once.

Meanwhile, Biden, like Hillary, is a known quantity to Trump, and based on what he knows Trump believes he can beat him. Trump is not confident to go up against someone his advisers haven't got a thorough handle on before the campaign starts: he's too dumb and he's only getting older. The last thing Trump wants is to enter the campaign if he's not sure he can win it, because for him it's not about the job, it's all about the winning. He'd be far happier playing elder statesman to the Party for the rest of his life than losing two elections in a row. For the same reason, if he does stand and win he'll make sure there is no chance of his losing again.

It pains me to say this, but Trump could beat Biden in 2024. Even though Trump lost the popular vote by 8 million, the number of votes Trump lost by I'm the electoral college (I'm talking about the people who voted for the electors) is shockingly low. Mid five figures, as I recall.

I feel a bit better, as Bannon's plan to get SoSes who would refuse to certify Biden electoral votes was foiled.

Trump may lose too. If the dems are smart, and continue to shove Dobbs up his ass. And, if we can put Trump or Bannon in prison.

I've never at all been a violent person. So it's shocking to me what I think but can't say.

Completely switching topics, this has NOTHING to do with anything. Remember the end of Manchurian Candidate? Angela Landsbury's son had to put a use a gun on her? Because he knew she would destroy this country? Love that scene.

[QUOTE]Yet for all the appearance of tumult in our politics, the past two weeks have also made it entirely clear that the election of 2024 might come down to exactly the same choice as the election of 2020: Biden versus Trump. The American public appears to dread a rematch between its two oldest Presidents, and both of them are viewed unfavorably by a majority of the public. In one survey this fall, just six per cent of voters wanted another Biden-Trump face-off. But that doesn’t mean it won’t happen. It might even be one of the likeliest scenarios.

This is such a weird way to frame this question. How many wanted the Hillary-Trump faceoff? It doesn't matter how much you like a particular faceoff, you get the faceoff you get. Asking about the candidates' favorability is much more useful.
