          First impeached President to run in the general election, which surprisingly Dems didn’t bring up in the election.
          Why would they? It lets Turmp say how he beat the Democrats, and then him and Republicans can scream it was a fake witch hunt and him winning proved it. I think there's indication it didn't hurt him and might have even helped him (which I believe was also partly true of Clinton where they got a boost in favorability ratings after it).

          Which, Nixon and Clinton had already been elected twice so they couldn't run anyway, could they? So its kinda meaningless to say how its rare. Its rare that he was impeached.

          I sleep better now knowing almost 70 million Americans think racism is a-ok.
          Its more than that. As there's racists that voted against Turmp because of one of the many other valid reasons.

          Didn't need to be. Plus when Dems do it, they are being "divisive." Only Republicans are allowed to sling shit.
          They are not allowed, they just do it anyway.
          How much shit do we constantly rip them for?

          Difference is they don't care.

          Ds need to nut up and play to win rather than play not to lose.

          Trump is a multiply credibly accused rapist and fun pal with Epstein.
          But no one touched this for five years.
          Meanwhile the Rs go from pizzagate to full on Qanon based on nothing.

          Trump's shady business deals?
          Some sniping here and there, but most D efforts have been centered on a never ending court battle for tax returns.

          Then they lost large numbers of Hispanics to T because they couldn't counter the conspiracy theories.

          This election should not have been close. Trump's a historically terrible human being, a coward, and a liar with a thin record of accomplishment, but they are going to barely beat him (and only after his incompetence killed a quarter million and destroyed the economy.)

          If no covid, T would have won.
          If impeachment installed Pence, he would have won.

          If your football team can only win when they pay the buttfumbling Jets, they are a terrible football team.

          Biden & Harris are going to win with a record number of votes. While I agree the election shouldn't have been close. With the record voter turn out, it's just proof how far gone Trump supporters are. I constantly see commenters on YT videos say Donald's the greatest president ever. Some are trolling, but some legit believe it. Trump supporters are a level of stupid that can't be fixed. After these last 4 years, with how this voting's going. I don't know if a candidate exists that could have beaten Trump badly. His hoard's absolutely massive and he can do no wrong in their eyes. And with the exception of a rare few here and there, none of them are swayable as far as voting for anyone but Trump. Trump goes to a rally in Georgia and tells his supporters he hates being there, wishes he wasn't there, and the only reason he even showed up is because he's down in the polling. And the crowd still erupted with cheers. Even with direct disrespect from him, they still give him their unconditional love and support.

          I watched the debates, Trump fans were ranting about how Biden & Harris both got beat so bad it was embarrassing. Which made me wonder if I had watched something different. I don't know if there's anything more Biden & Harris could have done. Could anyone vs Trump be anything other than a close race, or a win for Orange Fuck? With how his cult loves him I don't agree with the Jets reference. To me being able to topple 50+ million Trumpers is still an impressive feat. Unfortunately a flawless victory against him ain't happening so we'll have to take the win however we can.

          Everyone is "allowed." What matters is how it is judged by public opinion. America just loudly screamed there is nothing that Senate Republicans can do that is so bad that they will lose, short of being a serial child molester, and even that molester barely lost.

          Democrats and Republicans are judged on wildly different scales. You complain that they didn't hammer Trump on his business deals. That's because they have no real proof until they get the tax returns. Republicans can spout all the made up shit about Democrats they want and people, not just Republicans but a majority of Americans just believe it without question. Democrats are not nearly as susceptible to misinformation, and the second any scandal becomes undeniable, people (again, not just Republicans) instantly switch to bothsidesthesame, no matter how transparently stupid their comparisons are. Hell, i just had someone in another thread try to tell me climate change and trans issues are comparable examples of science denialism.

          The turn out for this election is pretty nuts. Both candidates got more votes than any modern president.

          What solution do you have? I heard the exact same shit from people in 2016, and almost all of them were actually Republicans that were pissed off because they were basically seeing how rotten their party has been laid bare before them and didn't like how it made them look. They didn't actually give a shit, and most of them very quickly tried to rationalize their arguments. They had no solutions. Just blame. Of course, not for themselves for enabling the horrible shitty Republicans, but for Democrats because if the Democrats acted like the Republicans that they hate, it'd somehow be better! Or if the Democrats hadn't made them do it because of whatever nonsensical bullshit reason they made up! Or because they somehow don't know what Democrats stand for (despite them projecting what Democrats do or do not stand for, and not having any better clue what Republicans stand for or if they do realizing its wholly corrupt and awful but acting like that's still better than whatever nebulous nonsense they imagined about the Democrats).

          They didn't touch it because it actually would elevate and enable QAnon who is now focusing on that (literally its Satanic Panic + Stranger Danger part 2), and they've been building the rationale for why Turmp is a hero via that. Its not like average people aren't aware of that shit with Turmp, so I don't even know what you think it would accomplish. People already made up their mind, either that, yep its horrible (but they were already not gonna vote for Turmp anyway) or that they are fine overlooking it because of whatever way they rationalize that (and those people were voting for Turmp basically regardless).

          Again, people are very aware of that stuff. This isn't new information and it hasn't swayed basically anyone. The Democrats are trying to get shit that they can act on which is why they're waiting on courts to rule on a bunch of that (because they have to). There's shitloads of investigations still ongoing (there's still ones being done about the 2016 election - that bipartisan investigation came right out and said it could take years and years as they're still unraveling more and more shit).

          And how would you suggest they fix that? Do you really think political ads will accomplish anything against that?

          Based on what? Because the problem is you're refusing to accept how many people have chosen to reject objective reality, and you're saying its the Dems fault. When literally that's one of the ways those people are saying they're rejecting Dems (I see blacks that are voting against Dems doing that, they say that Dems just talk to them but don't do anything or focusing on shit from decades past when the Democrats have said "yep, we fucked up on that" whilst they absolutely can see that enabling Republicans isn't gonna help but they do it anyway just because they feel Democrats are talking down to them - because Republicans tell them they are).

          Honestly, I don't think COVID actually changed things much other than possibly in the Senate (and that for the worse, I think it cost the Democrats because of how many insane people think its a hoax and the Democrats are trying to enslave them).
          I really don't know about that. Pence has none of the "charm" that Turmp does.

          And your solution is what? You talk about how the Democrats need to realize shit. You do too. You want to do something about right wingers delusions, you need to realize it starts at the individual level. You need to start calling that behavior out in person. Explain facts to them. Don't let them get away with just saying lies. Don't let them make up insane shit that goes unchecked. You'll have to learn how to do that (i.e. the methods people on here do obviously are not working).

          Simply put, until you are willing to hold conservatives responsible at the personal level, there's very little course to hold them responsible at the national level, because of them intentionally building a ridiculously corrupt system that because the American people won't hold them responsible for their actions, they can game into further enabling their corruption. Stop asking Democrats to save you, as they can't magically just go "yep that's bad, jail time!" like people seem to think.

          Republicans got this because they poisoned politics all the way down to the local level. Its time people understand this and start keelhauling the local motherfuckers. And you do that by holding the people you know accountable for their bullshit.

          This shit where people want to hold just the Democrats accountable for everything while not actually holding Republicans accountable is absurd. You need to start chanting "lock him up" to Turmp if that's what you want. If you want clowns, you gotta start honking your nose and painting your face. You need to start going apeshit on non-mask wearers if you want them held accountable. Fuck it, call the cops on them, tell them that they're threatening your personal safety. Pull a gun on their ass and tell them to back the fuck away if they get within 6 feet. If cops have to respond to enough of that they'll probably actually get off their asses and enforce mask mandates instead of acting like it doesn't matter. And when they have to deal with the raging assholes, well there's gonna be a whole lot of those fuckers in jail. Let their lives get ruined for a change and then they can fucking see what its like for other people.

          Don't you dare act like that's not on you after you just got done saying you want the Democrats to do it for you (and I know you're not as much of a raging hypocrite as that dumbfuck UK person that used to rage about Antifa but then wanted someone to go beat up Nazis for him). You need to nut the fuck up, or shut the fuck up.

          Hell, have you contacted your representatives and voiced your issues? I don't care which party they're for, call their ass up and tell them that you're pissed off at the Republicans. If they are a Republican, let's make them scared to be such shitheads. If they're Democrat, tell them to get more aggressive. Remember when America got proper pissed about them trying to undo the ACA and the Republicans shit their pants and ran away from facing their constituents? Where the fuck did that go?

          Dems should learn from the Lincoln Project. Any win will be a win but should be a cautionary tale to go for the throat. That does not mean claiming that their opponent is a Chinese operative unless there is substantial evidence. That shit is off. Visceral is more effective than being Mr. Rogers, the only mandate is being scrupulously truthful.

          A few things to unpack here. First of all, I still think if Dems had done what the Lincoln Project did, it would have been interpreted as divisive and/or fake news in the minds of many Americans. Second, the mere fact that Democrats have to be scrupulously truthful while Republicans get to lie as much as they want speaks volumes about how lopsided this whole situation is. And finally, what was the end result of TLP? Trump may end up with more votes for President in American history than anyone other than Joe Biden. It seems to me that it energized more Americans to vote for Trump than it gained for Biden.

          I hope the Dems have finally learned their lesson. Republicans cannot be treated as colleagues. They need to fight dirty and rough. Slit throats behind closed doors.

          Joe can just float above all that with his kum-by-ya stuff for the public
