Biden crimes vs. Trump crimes

If I tell an FBI agent somebody told me a “source” has audio recordings of Joe Biden taking a $5 million bribe, the agent will write it down on a form called an FD-1023. Now substitute an unnamed whistleblower who can’t be located for “I” and you’ve got the grand [...]

What’s at stake in Trump’s trial

Now that he’s been indicted, Trump is entitled to a presumption of innocence, and a fair trial. Those are bedrock principles of the U.S. legal system. Trump “has a lot at stake” in the case, a New York Times writer says. “He could, in theory, go to prison for years.” Bu[...]

Republicans are outraged Trump is indicted for breaking the law

Trump’s MAGA movement caught many Americans by surprise. They’ve never seen anything like it before. This is the first time anyone has tried to overthrow our democracy. To outsiders, Trump looks like a pied piper leading a crowd of zombies into a never-never land of lies, fantasies, and [...]

Biden and the sandbag

Republicans want you to believe Biden is too old for another term. That’s doubtful, but even if true, isn’t a good enough reason to elect any Republican presently in the field. Amusingly, Republicans who question Biden’s mental faculties are complaining he outsmarted them in debt c[...]

Do Republicans’ problems go beyond voter antipathy to Trump? Is the GOP a Superfund site? At this point, that’s a belief and attitude among Democrats, but there’s not a lot of hard evidence. GOP candidates underperformed in 2022, but the high-profile losers were almost exclusively [...]

Can any Republican win in 2024?

President Biden, who’s running for re-election, looks vulnerable. He has low approval ratings, many voters question his age, even many Democrats are leery of Kamala Harris succeeding him, and he could face an election-year recession. But you can’t ignore voters’ other choice, and t[...]
