I’d say, you don’t have to be for Biden to recognise that Donald “grab them by the pussy” Trump is worse.

In your position I’d hold my nose and vote for Biden as the least bad option.

See this bit?

I’ll vote for him anyway, because Trump. If you’re using sexual assault as a way to judge a candidacy, Trump’s open record of boasting about it, and the long, long list of women he’s abused and assaulted is surely dispositive.

I’m not asking you to think that Biden is anything other than “not as bad as Trump”. Which is about the lowest bar imaginable.

So your posts are really missing the mark.

But that's the whole point: for one particular author (Andrew Sullivan) the "character" issue that he discussed in that article was insufficient to sway his vote from Biden to Trump.

Then it’s odd that you’re focussing on the character issue as a reason to vote against Biden. If Trump is worse even there - and he is - that would be a very bad reason.

quote:
Is there enough "other" stuff to outweigh the fact that Trump is on the correct political side of more issues than Biden?

He is? Trump isn’t exactly known for coherent strategy.
There’s the corruption.
There’s the botched response to COVID-19
There’s the mess over healthcare
There’s the foolishness of the wall
There’s the whole business of sending federal snatch squads into Portland without the agreement of the local authorities

I think that will do for a start.

The new “Birtherism”
Various people are claiming that Kamala Harris is ineligible for VP, asserting that she’s not a natural born citizen. She is. This has been settled law for over a century.

But Trump of course gets in on the act and mangles the argument.

The president said: "I just heard it today that she doesn't meet the requirements and by the way the lawyer that wrote that piece is a very highly qualified, very talented lawyer.

And he also said:

"But that's a very serious, you're saying that, they're saying that she doesn't qualify because she wasn't born in this country."

Which isn’t even the argument (that was the false claim against Obama).

David Fickling offers a simple explanation of the sort of tax dealings involved.
