So let me get this straight:

Despite saying "a second T**** term would mean " and would be "a horror show", still thinks Biden would be worse???

Their argument is: "It's okay [if this incompetent criminal man-child is reelected], b/c & would keep him in check."

So WHY then would reelecting be worse than putting back in charge if who's doesn't even matter??? 🤨 🤔

#Trump saw more turnover in his #Cabinet than any other recent president, & it’s not even close. #POTUS #Biden, on the other hand, has had relatively little change in his admin’s top roles so far.

As Trump & Biden barrel toward a fall rematch, The WaPo is examining the numbers behind their time as president. In this case, we reviewed how they ran the vast #ExecutiveBranch of govt through the lens of the #stability of their Cabinets.

Book review for 2024 is Edward P. Crapol's John Tyler, the Accidental President. I think that seeing the 1840's era Presidents getting more critical looks is good for the study of American History in general and presidential history in particular. I think that the work adds to the understand of not just Tyler's administration but of 1840's America as well. A ☕☕☕☕ review @bookstodon @books @bookstodon

Book review for 2024 is Robert Caro's The Passage of Power: The Years of Lyndon Johnson. The first volume of this series, The Path to Power began a 40 plus year reading journey of every American President, that, with exception of POTUS 46 and 45, has continued to this day. This volume of Caro's series focuses on the 1960 election and up to the spring of 1964. Well written and moving.

    Yeah, this is why I say that @potus forced the hand of the Fediverse.

    Like it or not, most Americans want to see President Biden’s messages. I therefore suspect that many people will migrate to servers where they can follow him.

    I’m not saying certain servers are wrong for de-federating Threads. But just because a server enacts a policy doesn’t mean that end users agree with it. Both figuratively and literally, people have a right to vote in the matter.

    If they haven’t already, they will vote with their feet.
