I think this was the dumbest possible decision the DNC could make. Time will tell if that's true.
Why? Biden had zero chance of winning. Maybe you think Harris has too, but even if that's true it's not possible for anyone else to have less chance than Biden did. Him dropping out was the only possible chance the Democrats have of winning this election. There's a good chance they won't anyway, but there was nothing to lose.

Now they have legal minefield to navigate regarding how the candidate will be selected and how they will qualify to be on the ballot in each state. They're also confusing voters and making the DNC look chaotic.

Harris doesn't poll any better than Biden does. Now, that could change. It could get better... but looking back on her 2020 primary performance, the chances aren't looking good. The voters didn't like her at all and her primary run ended quickly.

I think the key take-away here is that all of the DNC's options are bad options, but keeping Biden at least appeared to be a sane thing to do, even if he was going to lose anyway. This will cause the DNC to devolve into even more finger-pointing and blame gaming than it was already doomed to experience.

Impressive. Biden has been out of the race only a few hours and the narrative has already switched from "Biden is the worst possible candidate the Democrats could be running, they're crazy to go with him" to "Biden was the best possible candidate the Democrats could be running, they're crazy to let him drop out."

With the DNC as it currently is, both statements are simultaneously true.

There's no point in arguing with him. We'll just have to wait until the thing he's insisting can't happen inevitably ends up happening, and then he'll probably say "haha trole u!" Anyway, I wasn't expecting this, but of course it's good news. I'd still bet that Trump wins, though. He's in a much stronger spot to win than he was in 2020.

Obviously, it was not impossible that Biden drop out (for example, he could die before the nomination). The idea of it actually happening was so incomprehensible that I assumed they wouldn't do it (hence, they can't do it). Watching a political party torpedo its own chances of winning an election in real-time is really something.

I think this was the dumbest possible decision the DNC could make. Time will tell if that's true.

Here's how Biden can still be replaced.
By him stepping aside.

We're back to our regularly scheduled program: Here's how Bernie can still win.

I could write a thesis on how this image alone won Trump the 2016 election.
Please do.

No.

Does he know something or just shilling?

Shilling? I think you mean "trolling". It's just rage bait, and judging by the comments, it worked.

Like, c'mon man, you trawl some of the ugliest parts of the Internet to find your talking points. Surely you have some of these to share:



But this isn't a terrible political meme, this is a work of art; it's a masterpiece of political science. I could write a thesis on how this image alone won Trump the 2016 election.

Biden is 81 years old, quite literally any virus will kick his ass (which goes doubly so for Trump regardless). They're probably just saying it's covid because the public still associates covid with "very bad disease". If they said Biden got sent to Walter Reed for a common cold, it'd make his already horrific polls crater to the point of no return.

Four months is a long time for anything to happen. Hillary might have had a far better election night had Comey not nuked her from high orbit just days before the election.

Maybe ol' Joe can have a gold medal Olympic sharpshooter put a round through his nose to compete with Trump.

More good news from Trump. He just can't stop winning.

Soon we will implement Project 2025 and Emperor Trump will destroy our enemies.

The matter is closed. Biden is the the Dem candidate, so that's who you vote for. I'm sorry you don't like who was chosen months ago to be the candidate, but that is how our system works and THAT is how you defeat fascism.

This'll be a shock, guys, but Rushy is talking out of his ass. Of course it's possible to replace Biden with a viable candidate on the ballot:

https://www.cnn.com/2024/07/11/politics/biden-replacement-process-dnc/index.html

Oh no, not a CNN article! This is the equivalent of "here's how Bernie can still win". Do better, honk. Googling "how to replace Biden" and linking to the first article you find is not the epic gotcha you think it is.

My hope is that Biden is forced to see sense and step aside.

An important point to note in the American political system: stepping aside is not an option.

In order to get on the ballot for the election, a candidate must qualify for all 50 states and that process must be done individually. Yes, there are 50 different sets of laws that control how a person gets onto a ballot. Much of those laws require candidates apply quite early, which is why the American electoral season is so extravagantly long compared to virtually all other nations. If Biden were to "step aside", then the DNC would only be left with the handful of Literally Who candidates that bothered to try to compete with Biden for the nomination. It's just not possible to shoehorn in some other person (like Kamala). You would end up requesting voters write-in the name of the candidate. That would be disastrous.

The DNC is stuck with Biden, which is why they're responding to calls to eject him the way that they are. Biden is going to be the running candidate for the DNC and that's that.

telling his fans that he's angry, that he's been victimized, and that he wants revenge.

Maybe it was a bad idea to use the legal system to bludgeon a political candidate with nonsense charges and then try to shoot him dead when that didn't work.

Damn it, just a little better aim and we'd have had great news.

We'd get Jan 6 again except this time it wouldn't be antifa larpers.
