Don’t Panic!

I am getting tired of Democrats panicking. Of course the media is going to keep talking about Biden’s bad debate, after all, it is clickbait for them. Of course Republicans are going to keep talking about it, they want to win power even if it destroys our country.

History is littered with bad presidential debate performances: Ronald Reagan’s first debate in 1980 against Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton in 1992 against George Bush and Ross Perot, Barack Obama against John McCain. All of them had terrible, awful, “career ending” debates. Except it didn’t end their careers, and they went on to win. Heck, people were writing off Biden during the 2020 primaries, until he started winning.

We’ve also had presidents whose cheese slipped off their cracker. Ronald Reagan had Alzheimer’s disease, but he stayed to the end of his term (and others took over for him). Woodrow Wilson had a stroke that left him paralyzed, and his wife (the first lady) took over for him. We’ve also had presidents who died in office. We’ve dealt with it. Biden has surrounded himself with good people who do most of the work of the administration. What we have NOT had is a president who wants to destroy the Constitution and throw his opponents in jail. Or who has had more convicted criminals in his administration. Until now.

Are we democrats total wimps??? For heaven’s sake, Donald Trump lied his way through the debate, is a convicted felon, a sex offender, a traitor who admires our enemies, and an idiot, but his base continues to think he is the second coming of Jesus, and Republican politicians kiss his ass daily.

And you want to dump Biden because of one bad debate?

Besides, saying “Biden must go” doesn’t make sense. Who is going to take his place? You can’t win an election with nobody. Who you gonna call? The Ghostbusters? Otherwise, saying “Biden must go” is a vote for Trump, and likely the end of our democracy.

If we are going to save America, we have to fight. If you think Biden has lost the election because of one bad debate, then you need to wake up. Here are two things for you to hear: first is the podcast by Rick Wilson of the Lincoln Project, published the day after the debate.

And second is this powerful posting on, which also includes the fiery speech given by Biden in North Carolina the day after the bad debate. He had a bad day, but it didn’t last.

My response to the debate was to send money to Joe Biden’s campaign. And – of course – I write these posts. You shouldn’t panic, you should fight like your country depends on it.

I’d rather have a president that sometimes has a slow day, rather than someone who lies so much his pants are on fire.

    I do not ever watch he “debates.” They are an utter meaningless media side show.
    We already know what kind of men the candidates are or are not, in the case of the fraud, cheat, liar, and convicted felon.

    Recall the Aesop’s fable about King Log and King Stork. King Log > King Stork.

    Worst case scenario: Biden is King Log and Trump is King Stork.

    Since Biden fixed the falling ceiling in the house I grew up in, I give to him fathfully. Beau and Hunter helped him. Biden made his fortune by good hard work. And if Obama wanted Bident to step aside, I think Joe would. He has the best advisers.
