Lack of brain power on the left, compared to the Trump legions? Okay...


...
I know plenty of highly intelligent Republicans (many on NBOT) who voted Republican probably because they are not for the Democrat platform and were not necessarily for Trump. I can totally understand that. I voted Democrat this time and was worried about doing it because of left extremists, but the Trump cult worries me much more.

The "brain power" of the left is why we are rid of the DJT threat to our democracy. Others that were too left were successfully defeated by the furthest right of all the presidential candidates---Joe Biden. That strategy (or just plain luck) worked.

I don't know of a single person who voted Joe specifically because of Joe Biden (I'm sure there are some). He's a better human being than Donald Trump. People voted against Trump, not particularly for Biden. There are quite a few Republicans who reluctantly voted for Biden because it was better for the country. There is no "Lincoln Project" on the left.

You can debate, bash, thrash, speculate, condescend, pout all you want about Joe's faults and limitations.

But, deep down, many Republicans know this was better for the country to move on---at this time. Just as it will be time to move on from Joe Biden next election.

Now, it's time for the Republicans and the Democrats to come up with leaders that resonate with the majority of the moderates in this country. If either party does that, they will win in 2024.
