"No, I don't support defunding the police. I support conditioning federal aid to police based on whether or not they meet certain basic standards of decency and honorableness," he said.

Democratic leaders on Capitol Hill were adopting a similar position. 

“I can’t imagine that happening in a federal way,” Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.), the chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus, said when asked about efforts to defund the police.

The messaging for this campaign is so sloppy it almost looks like they wanted to fail.

"Defund" in this context does not mean "zero the budget", it means "shift some of the police budget to social services". That's an awful lot to try and explain when someone as already decided you're a revolutionary kook. Speaking English would have been so much easier.

Biden has probably decided it's either not worth the time to explain or that it would cost him more in support with public employee unions than it would get among urban voters.

Or he just can't comprehend the concept of reducing a budget, ever.

Well there's some common sense.

 
Probably should stop suggesting defunding police and advocate for funding communities.

George Will wrote a good column about a solid VP candidate, Karen Bass. 
His recommendation is backed with specifics about her qualifications too.
Interesting read.

Not for nothing, but the subject of this thread is Joe Biden. You have to scroll down pretty far to find a comment remotely related to him.  Perhaps you can take your little party here to a new thread for Democratic Socialism?  As it stands, Joe Biden isn't even remotely close to being a Democratic Socialist.  For those of you playing at home, that would have been Bernie Sanders.

Unless the goal is to hijack every single thread even slightly related to politics with personal axes to grind.  If so - fabulous job.

I'm not the hall monitor, just interested in the actual topic, which started here 12 years ago. I'm not going to play the game of posting something relevant  here just to have it pulled off topic, again and again and again.....
 

LOL

Well maybe if Joe would get out the basement more and give us some news to chatter about.

Here's how it went four(?) days ago:

Joe Biden says there are ‘120 million dead from COVID’ in latest gaffe

 
And maybe if you had the balls to attempt an actual civil dialog on topic rather than post clips from your favorite far right wind sources, you wouldn't be the joke you are out here.

 
You first!

 

If & when you can manage to demonstrate that interacting with you is anything other than a waste of time, I might give it a shot. At this point, your show is blatantly obvious (not mention tediously boring) & I'm not remotely interested in being an actor in your little passion play.

Thanks,
Speaking of Mr. Biden, apparently his former boss plans to come out of hiding and support his campaign. Finally. I get it, Obama doesn't want to overshadow the guy, but still.

Not to mention, Obama has been far nicer to his successor than his successor ever was to him. Obama occupies a special place in Trump's head. Rent free.

Obama has been and is presidential. I think he has shown remarkable restraint the past 3 1/2 years. 

if I were the Biden campaign, I would be having he and Michelle campaign regularly in Milwaukee, Detroit, Philadelphia in the fall election run-up. Hilary did not do as well as her campaign thought it would in turning out voters in those cities. And she did not lose those swing states by all that much.
