Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Display:
Trump has always done everything his way. He is always the best, always right, can change opinions on a dime without any consequences. People love him for his contrary disruptive self - until they don't.

Trump's debate performance was Trump on steroids, (literally?). But, for a change, it didn't improve his position relative to Biden. Polls show that he has lost seniors and women in large numbers. And Trump's statements about the CORONA virus and his whole attitude towards precautions now only play to his base, and his base is not enough for him to win.

But Trump has to be Trump. He is psychologically incapable of presenting himself as anything else.

That is his fatal flaw.

Perhaps they don't know that Biden was the author of the Catfood Commission. Idiots will be gaping like carp when Biden and Pelosi and Schumer cut Social security by 30% because inflow is greater than outflow and "pay-go". They will tinker with the tax code but their billionaire backers will keep their tax cuts.

There were at least five Democrats of the nine running that I could have voted for. Harris and Biden weren't in that list.

If you have the proper skill set the wilderness is not so bad a place to be just now.
