    No, it probably wouldn't have been a year of good, solid government. No, he probably wouldn't have run a good campaign. It wouldn't have mattered. It is very difficult to beat an incumbent when the economy is good, and it was good until the pandemic hit.

    As others mentioned, I don't think the Black Lives Matter protests gain nearly that sort of traction if not for the pandemic. It wasn't just that people were home and had the time to do it. People were frustrated and upset already, then the Floyd video got out, setting off a powder keg that already existed.

    Many people who say he would have won if not for COVID are not praising President Trump. They just see the political reality.

    I’m stating a prediction not an emotion.

    of course, my prediction is wrong. Because the Biden plan will be an eight year path to citizenship. In other words, you’ll have to vote through a couple different elections to keep the path.

    how do you feel about that?

    Yep. Hey, it’s a solution. It’s not nothing.

    He's got no more beef than the Dixie Chicks did after they trashed W. in London. People are free to purchase your products or services, or not. And they don't have to give you or anyone else a reason.

    Point taken .... good move, until guys like Trump trashed it. But then again, the grownups will be in charge in less than 24 hours.

    On the 401k stuff I don’t think you’ll convince Doc.

    I'll go further and to repeat a recent post I made, I think if Trump doesn't see the virus as a threat, relies on moderately competent people to fight it, and encourages people to wear masks (as his lemmings would most assuredly have done), he wins 350 electoral votes and maybe the popular vote. That's the thought I hope haunts him for the rest of his wretched life: he didn't have to spend another dime, stage another rally, miss another tee time or do anything remotely within his job description, other than to say about April 1 that the virus is serious, we're going to do everything we can and wear a mask. Then he sits back and wins. In the long run we'd have all been worse off for it but he has this victory well in hand and blew it by begin a dipsit.
