“Is anyone archiving these Trump sycophants for when they try to downplay or deny their complicity in the future? ”
I never read that as trying to get a list of the 70M voters of his. I'm pretty sure shes referring to politicians.

People like McConnel, Cruz, Graham, etc. tore Trump to shreds in public until he won the nomination, then he was the greatest thing that's ever happened to the country. They will 100% act like they never supported hum and claim they fought against him as soon as it helps them politically.

But, to be fair, that's the game. I wish we could get rid of 99% of the people in DC and get people that actually care about the country in office, but that's never going to happen. I know this is preaching to the choir, but we desperately need term limits.

When MSNBC announced Trump's win in Iowa, there was an audible grunt from Rachel Madow. By the sound of it, she apparently sat on her sack wrong. Happens to the best of us.

I guess I don't understand Twitter because the link you provided, at least show me, a timestamp of 3:18.  You first posted this almost 25 minutes ago.  How's that work?  Does the timestamp refresh for the person looking at it.  If not, you're reposting a fake tweet because her page doesn't show it.  Totally possible I don't understand Twitter.  First time I ever went to the site.
 
I still ask, what's wrong with the question.  Take note of the hypocrites...
 
It's from yesterday. Jesus, she tweets as much as Trump does. I hate the politicians have become so reliant on Twitter. I've never seen it make anyone appear smart.

AOC is calling for a list of names of those who supported the current President according to her recent Tweets. I seem to recall something like that from history class...

Source/link?

I see “@JRubinBlogger” making some sort of statement about a “list”. I don’t know who she is, nor do I give two fucks about what she says. You stated “AOC is calling for a list of names of those who supported the current President according to her recent Tweets”. I still see no evidence of AOC calling for said list.

Please provide a link.  Her twitter feed shows nothing like that.

 

Look, I can do what you did: "I, Donald Trump, hereby and forthwith concede that I lost, and there were no shenanigans.  I made all that up!"  See, easy...

 

ETA: reading the quote you attribute to her, what's wrong with that?  Lindsey Graham should be forced to watch video of himself calling Trump all sorts of nasty things nonstop, until he was the President.  Then, acting like he was the GOP's savior.  Being shown their hypocrisy would be a good thing for them...

Quoted for your effective research. Or maybe you choose to only see things that benefit your argument?

I seem to remember a time when socialists took lists of names in history, didn't end up going very well... Wait, maybe that was the "old" history before it was re-written by the Left.

Bro, I literally pulled it from going to her page and scrolling down myself and finding it. Not rocket science.

Trump has been the only president in my lifetime who avoided starting a new conflict or invading another country.  Who are we going to pick a fight with now since it's returning to "normal."

Let's hold off on this declaration until we're sure he's not going to saunter down from the presidential bedroom on January 20th and go to work on his 2nd term in the Oval Office as if nothing has happened.

Article II of the Constitution:

The President and Vice President [shall be] elected, as follows:

"Each State shall appoint... a Number of Electors... The Electors shall meet in their respective States, and vote by Ballot..."

Notice what's missing from this statement? Any mention of the Press. AP does NOT decide the outcome of the Election.

States will soon certify their results and Biden will emerge as the the winner of the election. This is what news outlets are basically reporting. 
 

But you already know this.

Of course, but at some point it becomes obvious with almost complete certainty. If the electoral votes somehow end up with Trump as the winner I'll be the first on here to accept that as the true result.

Don't be a tool. I read it wrong, that's why I asked for a link. He provided it. I was corrected. NBD.

Point still stands, what's wrong with what she's asking? I think k she's way too immature/inexperienced to be good at her job yet, and the GND is a complete non starter, but she's got a point in remembering who the hypocrites are.

Damn, some of y'all are taking this L really badly. Grieving is a process, I suppose.

What's more interesting to me is how close elections have become these days. In the past 8 elections, the GOP has only won the popular vote once, but were able to compete because of the built-in electoral college advantage to take 3 of 8. The GOP used to win decisively back in the day, but we just haven't seen that in almost 30 years. It's been either a Democrat beatdown, or a closely contested election that goes either way, which usually went Republican. But now the GOP are losing those close contests too.

Even though Biden's margins in multiple states were tight, he opened up multiple battlegrounds and won almost all of them. Like, 10 states were battleground states this year, when there used to be only maybe 2 or 3 in an election. It used to be that whoever won Florida and Ohio won the election. Now you don't even need either of those states to win by a good 70+ EV.

Personally, I think we're already seeing the long-heralded demographic shift starting to produce real effects. By 2024, millennials will have overtaken boomers as the largest generation in the electorate. Sure, Republicans will compete for many years, utilizing advantages with SCOTUS and built-in advantages with how the number of Senators and Representatives work, but from where I'm sitting, it looks more like a fighting retreat than anything else.

I know this is terrifying times for many of you, but you shouldn't be that worried about the "far left agenda".  In reality across the US there were several very progressive candidates on the ballot and most of them lost by a wide margin.  Even Biden as a fairly bland centrist democrat barely squeaked out a win against Trump, which I think shocked many on the left who were hoping for a bit of a blue wave.  The democratic party won largely due in part to the moderate middle, so enacting "far left" policies is only going to guarantee a loss in 2022, and 2024.

If history is any indicator the democratic party will play it safe by offering relatively centrist policies that have wide public support, and the senate will blockade any progress and blame the white house until you get another authoritarian in office to abdicate power to.  As an added bonus we can go back to pretending to care about the defecit (yay for actual fiscal conservatism!).  If by some freak of nature we take a tie in the senate, anything that gets signed into law will likely be struck down in courts, so again...nothing much to worry about.

If Trump had lost in a landslide and we swept the senate, then I might agree that we are in for some progressive policy changes, but ultimately it's not likely to happen and the party isn't going to blow their political capital slamming their heads against a wall for the next several years.

I'm a bit shocked the race was so close.  Honestly goes to show how lucky we are Trump always doubles down on stupid and refuses to appeal to anyone not in his hardcore base.  Seriously he could have walked out of walter reed and pretended to care about Covid for a month and probably swept Biden and then resumed business as usual.

I just hope out of this mess we can have both sides meet and agree on an election security and voter rights law.  Both of which are needed for us to have faith in our democratic process.

If any of you have your doubts in the election process and the likelihood of voter fraud, I encourage you to get involved and volunteer to work the polls in the next election to see it for yourself first hand, and not just random twitter videos of people pretending to uncover rampant fraud.  Educate yourself.  Be part of the solution.

I expect nothing less from tweeter shit-poster in chief. He's been this way from the start.  

Just today he trolled media and had them go to "four seasons" and then add "landscaping" 30 minutes prior.

Here are my observations on Conservative fears:

1.) A second Trump victory would have indicated a historic rejection of the Social Justice principles that have eroded the unity of our society for the last 20 years. It would have made it clear that those principles were not tolerable to the US electorate. This is probably the largest loss in this election for Conservatives, and will likely keep the country divided for another 2 decades. 

2.) Should the Democrats take the Senate, speculation is high they will remove the filibuster and pass an assault weapons ban. 

3.) Also removing the filibuster would allow stacking the Supreme Court. 

4.) On a whole though, 2 and 3 don't look possible for this term. Its unlikely Democrats will get a strong mid term showing, and first mid terms for new party are usually a correction in the other direction. So I think chances are good they will not have either house in 2 years. 

5.) The Democratic electorate largely believes this was a major victory. However, the House and Senate votes say otherwise. Democrats honestly have a large uphill battle to pass any meaningful agenda. 

6.) Even if Biden does tap out year #2 and put K. Harris in, she wont have the congressional support to push a far left agenda. 

7.) As a military member though, I am concerned about foreign involvement. Especially since Biden sat deuce for Obama, who was a very hawkish President. 

8.) I'm also worried Biden will play us back into NATO/EUCOM, refocus energy on Russia when it needs to be on China, and remove emphasis from China overall. This would be an enormous failure in Global Security. 

Other than that, I don't think much will change in the next 4 years. I really hope to god though he doesn't get us into a foreign quagmire. That was one thing I was at least very confident in with Trump. It was very clear Trump was keeping us out of overseas debacles.

Point 8 is spot on unfortunately...
