Democrats Have a Better Option Than Biden

Description

Biden is faltering and Democrats have no plan B. There is another path to winning in 2024 — and I think they should take it. But it would require them to embrace an old-fashioned approach to winning a campaign.

This Pollyanna view of Biden is disturbing. The cause of inflation was the war in Ukraine. In 2020, Bernie had momentum heading into the SC primary. This panicked the Democratic National Committee. Bernie wasn't taking corporate dollars. So the Democratic machine, especially in the person of Rep. James Clyburn, got on the Biden bandwagon. Clyburn took more money from Big Pharma than any other House member. To claim Biden has a good track record on the environment is not accurate.

Excellent vision on what can/could be. Please Americans, don't let that insane orange psychopath anywhere close to any sort of government office...
