Plan D

Dug in.
Dedication, determination and doing democracy with a big and little “D.”

“I’m not in this for my legacy. I’m here to complete the job I started.”

Joe Biden, President of the United States

Doing right.

Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!


Plan C

Attribution: Stubborn Biden Drags Democrats to Convention by R.J. Matson, CQ Roll Call

Before Drumpf jumped into the race to save himself from jail, Joe’s Plan A most likely was to step down from the Presidency right after the 2024 primaries to allow Kamala to go into the convention as President keeping his “bridge” promise in 2020. By that time she would be ensconced as a proven leader to the nation and to the world.

But the dangerous wannabe-dictator dove into the pool like a cannonball diver.

Ergo Plan B based on assumption of Dem unity repeating the 2020 victory against the dark forces. Alas, disunity ensued.

Thus, IMHO, Plan C (aka the Convention preceded by the virtual vote in August) wherein Joe waits until the Biden Harris ticket is official and the ballots are printed before passing the baton.


Let’s Play What If

Instead of giving a rousing and historically significant speech yesterday greeted by a standing ovation of NATO attendees what if President Biden said this:

“A waitress came over, beautiful waitress, and I never like talking about physical. She’s beautiful inside. Because you never talk about a person’s look. Ever. You never mention it. The other day I got very angry. Some man called Chris Christie fat. And I said, ‘sir!’ And then he said he was a pig. I said, ‘sir! Chris Christie is not a fat pig. Please remember that.'”

“Mothers will never again be forced to watch their children overdosing and hosp–lee. And we will never allow mothers to watch their child hopelessly dying in their arms, screaming, ‘What can I do? What can I do? Help me God, what can I do?’ We are a nation whose once revered airports are a dirty, crowded mess.”

“We will take over the horribly run capital of our country in Washington DC … right now if you leave Florida — ‘oh, let’s go darling, let’s look at the Jefferson Memorial’ … and you end up getting shot, mugged, raped. We’re gonna take over our capital and we’re gonna run it tough and smart.”
