the Trumps realized the error of their ways & turned away from the dark side

I'm sure listening in on Donald and Melania talking about politics would be a real experience

lol can’t alienate the racist old white people

No, you can't. They are the ones that actually get out and vote instead of just complaining on their phones all day. Even cooped up here I have talked to several "older" friends who have reset their internal thoughts on what racism is because of the events this year so don't be afraid to give us older Dems the benefit of the doubt. You are getting somewhat carried away inside your bubble.

the only people living in a bubble are the ones who think that becoming the racist white people party is somehow “winning” lol. democrats could absolutely run and win on strong, popular policy empowering workers and the oppressed but that’s just not profitable for the rich and if it’s not profitable for the rich then it’s not profitable for democratic politicians and if it’s not profitable for democratic politicians then it doesn’t get done.

and btw if your old friends really “reset their thoughts on racism” then uhh it’s awfully convenient that they did so the year the democrats nominated a white supremacist

btw it shouldn’t go unnoticed that criticism from the left is met with “buhhh well my racist buddies vote unlike the people who whine on their phones all day” like yeah, we know, racist white people vote. as has been repeatedly demonstrated on this very forum, voters are whiter and wealthier than the general population. voting is the domain of the privileged. and why wouldn’t it be? look at the upcoming presidential election. white supremacist and evangelical vs white supremacist and cop. that’s catnip for racist white people lol

Calling Joe Biden a racist is really undermining everything else I read from you.

Your time would be way better spent doing voter drives for young and poor people or raising money for whomever it is you are writing in, because just ranting on a message board about the inequality of it all does not seem to be getting anything done. I'd love for a guy like Bernie to get elected but he's just going to sit on his thumbs without anything to sign from Congress. Joe Bidens signature on whatever the Democratic majority Congress can get through is just as legal and binding as Bernies. And Bernie doesn't know anything about foreign affairs; next President has a lot of bridge mending and international Trump related investigations to navigate though. I'll take a cop as VP if her number one target is Donald Trump.

Biden is definitely an authority on foreign affairs...we can start with Ukraine with his son as an advisor

"Kamala as VP is great because she'll lock up Drumpf" is the biggest COPE I've seen yet. She didnt even go after Steve Mnuchin when it was laid out on the table for her.

you can if you are absolutely a stupid fuging retarded moron who can just remember the last 12 hours of whatever Fox News told you. His major problem was his support for the Iraq War, but I don't think that's whats got you whining about his kid.

 

Biden was a longtime member of the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations. In 1997, he became the ranking minority member and chaired the committee in January 2001 and from June 2001 to 2003. When Democrats retook control of the Senate after the 2006 elections, Biden again assumed the top spot on the committee.[126] He was generally a liberal internationalist in foreign policy.[75][127] He collaborated effectively with important Republican senators such as Richard Lugar and Jesse Helms and sometimes went against elements of his own party.[126][127] Biden was also co-chairman of the NATO Observer Group in the Senate.[128] A partial list covering this time showed Biden meeting with 150 leaders from nearly 60 countries and international organizations.[129] He held frequent hearings as chairman of the committee, as well as many subcommittee hearings during the three times he chaired the Subcommittee on European Affairs.[75]

Biden voted against authorization for the Gulf War in 1991,[127] siding with 45 of the 55 Democratic senators; he said the U.S. was bearing almost all the burden in the anti-Iraq coalition.[130]

Biden became interested in the Yugoslav Wars after hearing about Serbian abuses during the Croatian War of Independence in 1991.[75] Once the Bosnian War broke out, Biden was among the first to call for the "lift and strike" policy of lifting the arms embargo, training Bosnian Muslims and supporting them with NATO air strikes, and investigating war crimes.[75][126] The George H. W. Bush administration and Clinton administration were both reluctant to implement the policy, fearing Balkan entanglement.[75][127] In April 1993, Biden spent a week in the Balkans and held a tense three-hour meeting with Serbian leader Slobodan Milošević.[131] Biden related that he had told Milošević, "I think you're a damn war criminal and you should be tried as one."[131] Biden wrote an amendment in 1992 to compel the Bush administration to arm the Bosnians, but deferred in 1994 to a somewhat softer stance the Clinton administration preferred, before signing on the following year to a stronger measure sponsored by Bob Dole and Joe Lieberman.[131] The engagement led to a successful NATO peacekeeping effort.[75] Biden has called his role in affecting Balkans policy in the mid-1990s his "proudest moment in public life" related to foreign policy.[127]

In 1998, Congressional Quarterly named Biden one of "Twelve Who Made a Difference" for playing a lead role in several foreign policy matters, including NATO enlargement and the successful passage of bills to streamline foreign affairs agencies and punish religious persecution overseas.[132]

In 1999, during the Kosovo War, Biden supported the 1999 NATO bombing of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia,[75] and co-sponsored with John McCain the McCain-Biden Kosovo Resolution, which called on President Clinton to use all necessary force, including ground troops, to confront Milošević over Yugoslav actions in Kosovo.[127][133] In 2016, Biden paid a state visit to Serbia where he met with Serbian president Aleksandar Vučić and expressed his condolences for the civilian victims of the bombing campaign.[134]

Biden was a strong supporter of the 2001 war in Afghanistan, saying, "Whatever it takes, we should do it."[135]

As head of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Biden said in 2002 that Saddam Hussein was a threat to national security and there was no option but to "eliminate" that threat.[136] In October 2002, he voted in favor of the Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq, approving the U.S. invasion of Iraq.[127] More significantly, as chair of the committee, he assembled a series of witnesses to testify in favor of the authorization. They gave testimony grossly misrepresenting the intent, history of and status of Saddam and his Sunni government, which was an openly avowed enemy of al-Qaida, and touting Iraq's fictional possession of weapons of mass destruction.[137]

While he eventually became a critic of the war and viewed his vote and role as a "mistake", he did not push for U.S. withdrawal.[127][131] He supported the appropriations to pay for the occupation, but argued repeatedly that the war should be internationalized, that more soldiers were needed, and that the Bush administration should "level with the American people" about the cost and length of the conflict.[126][133] By late 2006, Biden's stance had shifted considerably, and he opposed the troop surge of 2007,[127][131] saying General David Petraeus was "dead, flat wrong" in believing the surge could work.[138] Biden instead advocated dividing Iraq into a loose federation of three ethnic states.[139] In November 2006, Biden and Leslie H. Gelb, President Emeritus of the Council on Foreign Relations, released a comprehensive strategy to end sectarian violence in Iraq.[140] Rather than continuing the present approach or withdrawing, the plan called for "a third way": federalizing Iraq and giving Kurds, Shiites, and Sunnis "breathing room" in their own regions.[9]:572–573 In September 2007, a non-binding resolution endorsing such a scheme passed the Senate,[140] but the idea was unfamiliar, had no political constituency, and failed to gain traction.[138] Iraq's political leadership denounced the resolution as de facto partitioning of the country, and the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad issued a statement distancing itself from it.[140]

In March 2004, Biden secured the brief release of Libyan democracy activist and political prisoner Fathi Eljahmi, after meeting with leader Muammar Gaddafi in Tripoli.[141][142] In May 2008, Biden sharply criticized President George W. Bush for his speech to Israel's Knesset, where he suggested some Democrats were acting the way some Western leaders did when they appeased Hitler in the run-up to World War II. Biden said, "This is bullshit. This is malarkey. This is outrageous. Outrageous for the president of the United States to go to a foreign country, sit in the Knesset ... and make this kind of ridiculous statement ... Since when does this administration think that if you sit down, you have to eliminate the word 'no' from your vocabulary?" He later apologized for using the expletive.[143]
