UVA’s Larry Sabato nails it: “The behavior of a sizeable group of Republican legislators tonight was outrageous and disgusting. Their screaming and catcalling at the President was obscene. Free speech? Sure. Decorum and courtesy? DEAD. This was unthinkable when I started watching SOTU in the ’60s.”
Our friend and legend CBob, formerly known as Colorado Bob, has passed.
Re-posting Sturgeon’s recent tribute, which nailed it.
Thank You Robert
Thanks for the stories. Thanks for the tall tales. Thanks for being brakeman on the hellbound train. Thanks for the solar stove and Peggy’s garden. Thanks for the water harvester. Thanks for the Mustang Sally bassman rock. Thanks for Joe Don the Fig. Thanks for the picks on Buddy’s grave. Thanks for the blue corn. Thanks for the Shelter Boxes, Haiti bound. Thanks for the vest which is going to be a family Heirloom.
When I look at the awful 2024 Senate map for Dems (twice as many incumbents as Republicans up for grabs) I’m thinking a half dozen or so whose polls show their voters don’t want Biden to run will go to him and say we love you, you’ve been a significant president, we’ll run on your accomplishments but you need to step aside. As a lifelong creature of the Senate he might listen to them.
Democrats have a strong bench of contenders. Let’s give them a chance to emerge.
I do love our Uncle Joe but it just doesn’t make sense to me for him to run again.
If he runs he’ll get the nomination and he’ll get my vote, but I hope he gives this thing a lot more thought.
FOX et al insults on Biden’s cognitive status will backfire if he continues delivering powerful speeches like he did in Atlanta yesterday at MLK chirch. He sure makes a lot more sense than Trump’s psychotic ramblings.
