Skip to comments.Options for Democrats? [Vanity]
Posted on 10/15/2020 2:30:08 PM PDT by Reno89519
We have the makings of an historic October Surprise--Biden family corruption, FBI coverup, Tech Media censorship--laid bare with tens of thousands of email and related documents. Incredible, and finally maybe enough critical mass to but Joe Biden at risk or out of the running. Okay, what are the options? Ballots already printed, people are already voting.
Do Democrats and Biden ride it out to defeat? (Or do they think they can rig things sufficiently to pull out a win?)
If Biden resigns from the ticket, does it default to Kamala Harris? Are ballots to Biden valid?
Can Biden announce that should he win he'll step aside, thus asking for everyone to vote in essence for Kamala Harris?
As soon as the FBI did forensics on the laptops data they would quickly see whether 40,000 emails were faked.
They would have gone to the Biden campaign and Hunter Biden to verify names, dates, and places.
That would have tipped off Joe and Hunter. Joe and his campaign would have a carefully crafted denial, ready to go.
Where is it?? Where are the denials?
The silence and hiding is deafening. This story is gaining traction every day. Tucked is going to blow them up tonight.
Tucked = Tucker. I understand that the story is just warming up.
I hope President Trump brings it up in his town hall. The left owns the media. If they don’t report it, it’s like the story never existed.
Or instead of investigating it the FIB put it in in the bottom of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying “Beware of the Leopard”.
Biden can’t drop out. Votes for Biden will not be counted towards Harris at the top of the ticket. Too late for that.
Yes, he can promise he would step aside, but that’s basically what they have been running on anyway, just without saying it. Nobody could actually force him to step aside though, or stop him from pardoning himself and Hunter if he won. I’m not sure “trust me” will work well as a strategy in this circumstance.
Europe or China.
How many of the other ‘bombshells’ like this have developed into anything? Aren’t we tired of being “rope-a-doped” yet?
DC is SO corrupt that the can’t afford to prosecute any corruption lest it ALL come out.
But they have been on display at the local galactic planning office for 50 of your “earth-years”!
With all the early voting Democrats are SCREWED! Biden can’t drop out or ALL votes already cast for Biden/Harris will be WASTED.
They are STUCK with Biden/Harris.
There is precedent. It happened in 1872 when the Democrats had to replace their presidential candidate, Horace Greely, after Election Day due to Greeley's death.
“Well, tonight we’ll see if ABC asks Biden about this, maybe. /s”
The problem is the script is already loaded on the teleprompters and Joe has run through them numerous times.
So there may not be time for Joe to “bake in” the answers.
I actually expect Joe to get better numbers then Trump tonight because of this and people want to see if Biden really has lost his mind. If Joe does get better numbers MSM will declare its over..again.
A shared concern, especially as this is involves Guiliani.
She's bitter she didn't win, and if she can't win she certainly doesn't want Uncle Touchy winning.
AFAIK, ballots don’t change at this point. People could literally vote for an incarcerated/incapacitated/dead candidate. I assume the powers that be would apply 25th Amendment to promote Kamala to the vacancy. I assume enough would _not_ vote for an incarcerated/incapacitated/dead candidate as to throw the election to Trump.
...wait, BOTH town halls are AT THE SAME TIME?!?!?!? Biden’s gonna wish he’d kept the debate as scheduled, with a friendly moderator fielding stock questions.
The Clintons were masters at dealing with stuff like this.
Examples of approaches they like:
—Deny, just deny everything.
—Attack the accusers. Call them names.
—Claim it has already been investigated and you have been exonerated.
—Claim the documents are fake.
—Bribe or threaten witnesses when necessary, kill them if that does not work.
—Attack Republicans—the mass media _loves_ that.
—Change the subject to anything else.
—Have family members vouch for how wonderful you are.
—Have celebrities vouch for how wonderful you are.
Please feel free to add to the list!
Okay, that makes sense.
The problem is that MSM and Bug Tech are acting like nothing has happened with Joe Biden and his son.
Their going to go down with the Titanic. The only response they’ve got to this point is “Debunked! La, la, la, la, la, la!”
If Biden resigns from the ticket....don’t be silly...
