Man, @aruzinsky, you need to listen to that tape again.

 

Your quote above is a complete and utter FALSEHOOD.

 

 


No, it was an utter TRUTHHOOD.

Are you saying that you think Joe is being attacked by the R side of the table???


OH, sure he is.  On the other hand, the Democrats have so many choices for their presidential candidate that they are being very careful to look at all sides of the issue.  Whether Joe is out of touch or too old is obviously one of those questions.   It is all part of a robust debate on the best candidate to win in 2020.  if it is Joe, he can take on Trump on both the "handsy" issue and the age issue. After all, cheating on your wife with a porn star is a tad worse than kissing a woman on the top of her head in public. Or don't you agree?


According to the #metoo whackoes that the left had become enamoured with, the latter.

 

To me - the first is between the adults involved. As to the second, I am not opposed to public displays of affection or touching beyond hand shaking. However, if a person makes it clear they do not want to participate, she is "off limits".


"The adults involved?". When did you hear that Melania was OK with this? I did not realize that Trump grabbing women by their genitals was also done by consent.  Looks like the perfect example of what would happen if the Republicans tried to use Biden's actions as a campaign issue. The necessary defense of Trump's actions would go right to ridiculous excuses immediately.

And saying that you can "grab them by the **bleep**" is worse too, but that's acceptable to trump supporters.


When were you assigned the position of spokesperson for Trump supporters?

My wife doesn't care if I look and even drool a little - It's merely appreciating attractive biological adaptations that enhance reproduction - but do they have the kind of IQ that earned multiple doctorates and can read, write and speak over a dozen languages - and have a twisted sense of humor that I find matches/compliments mine?  

 

Nope - not anywhere close...

Some of them are even (gag - nausea) conservative and up tight and - well - "of that unfortunate conservative mind set"...

Perhaps your take on relationships. But I think others have good relationships without the mind games and trying to play with each other’s heads.

Have caring with courtesy and respect. A mutual attraction may follow a natural course, along with a lot of work!

I have't read this whole thread and don't want to but I do have a couple of questions on this particular Biden situation.

 

Why didn't these women doing the accusing say something when it happened?

 

Does this mean that Joe Biden is a "Space Invader"?   Woman LOL  Woman Wink  


I like the Space Invader line. I can understand why they did not raise an issue at the time. Times change and the balance of power changes. I find it interesting that we are discusing the mote in Biden's eye while ignoring the beam in Trump's.
