    What’s this supposed to even mean? Biden is a true conservative!

    There goes Ramirez again, doing his Joseph Goebbels impersonation!

    The Big Lie. Tell it loud, tell it strong and tell it repeatedly.

    Joe Biden a left wing extremist? Either Ramirez is profoundly ignorant of 2020 American politics, or he is intentionally dishonest and, sorry Mike, but I don’t think he is that ignorant.

    Anyone with the slightest degree of political literacy knows that the primary opposition to Joe Biden in the Democratic primaries came from the LEFT. Because JOE BIDEN IS TOO MODERATE; too conservative; too corporate.

    Sure, compared to Donald Trump? In a binary choice, moderate Biden vs wacko extremist conspiracy theory cult deity Trump? Biden may not have been in even the top ten of the leftists’ primary preferences (and I speak as a solid leftist, who anyone following these pages knows was 10,000% behind Elizabeth Warren, NOT BIDEN), but compared to Trump?

    The one best quality about Biden is that, while he may not be as strong as we would like, at least he is someone who can unite Democrats with moderate Republicans. Many of the conservative Republicans who would never otherwise support a Democrat, such as John Kasich, Colin Powell, the McCain family, and many others, can at least get behind a moderate Democrat like Biden, whereas they would never be able to support a true leftist like Bernie Sanders or my favorite, Warren.

    The dishonesty of the Trumpublicons is astounding.

    Even if Biden and Harris weren’t conservatives, which they are, they’re still immeasurably better than the Tangerine Traitor!

    Saying that Biden/Harris are left-wing is so obviously a lie that it should have scorched the image as Ramirez was drawing it. In fact, both of them are going to have to work hard to get and keep actual  liberals on board. If they lose, it’s almost surely going to be partly because they aren’t liberal enough!.

    It is a cute image… even though it’s stupid and wrong.

    Politics and political forces are ALWAYS about vector forces. It all comes together in the resultant vector. Democrats are not MAGA sheeple. That several vector forces are at work is inevitable when there are such things as the thought process at work.

    Funny, Michael. Keep up the excellent work. As for those saying Joe is “conservative”, you need a new source for your news. He adopted most of Bernie Sanders platform so he wouldn’t have to come up with something on his own (like in college), and Kamala is “the most liberal senator in the senate”. Wise up.

    Republicans fly in circles because they only use their right wing.

    A vote for a republican is a vote against democracy in the USA.

    As opposed to the president’s remarks concerning QAnon: ’ “I’ve heard these are people that love our country,” Mr. Trump said during a White House news conference ostensibly about the coronavirus. “So I don’t know really anything about it other than they do supposedly like me.” ’

    There’s this pack that follows Ted Rall who argue regularly about what a conservative Biden is. Since they belong to this forum, I always hope that they would show up at some of the conservative comics that claim Biden and the Democrats are leftists. But it seems they have no problem with Trump supporters. They only have problems with people who support Biden.

    Does anyone think Biden has an ideology? He and Harris are where they are because they are party soldiers who will accept the line decided for them, (unlike Sanders and AOC).

    There Is No “left wing” in US politics. Sanders, Warren, and AOC would be considered “center-right” in Europe.

    If we had a genuine radical left, there would be speeches calling for Madame la Guillotine to be set up on Wall Street pour encourager les autres.

    Stupid cartoon. All sorts of right-wing people are flooding to Biden’s Big Tent: Never Trumpers, disaffected Republicans, principled Conservatives, real Christians. Hardly only a left-wing party.

    The happiest person at the DNC “convention” is Bernie. He couldn’t get the nomination but his policies made it. The grumpiest person on the planet was the only one smiling. Things are weird, indeed.

    Not to worry, Biden is almost done tossing out the tofu cubes to the screamers. He will move back to the center well before November.

    Not only is this toon politically inaccurate, it is aerodynamically inaccurate as well. A large left wing would provide greater lift not less lift as depicted.

    If it had been accurately drawn with the right wing low, it would have been a great metaphor for right wing policies and lack of leadership dragging down the nation in an ever tightening death spiral.

    It’s a solidly demonstrated fact that Rump’s and his fellow “conservatives’” ideas and policies are very unpopular and that, conversely, virtually all (or maybe simply all) of the Democratic policies are beneficial for a wide range of citizens, not just a tiny handful of the already overprivileged few. I don’t have the idea that there’s broad popular support for turning national parks and wilderness areas into industrial wastelands, for polluted air and water, for uninspected meat, for larcenous “credit” schemes, for unaffordable health care, and so on and on. Maybe I’m missing something.

    Mr. Ramirez, you are nothing more than a troll cartoonist, so this comment is not for you.

    People, keep in mind the fact that Trump and his Republican toadies live in a culture of fascist corruption.

    Biden has devoted 50 years to public service and the good of this country. He and Kamala want to take our country back from the precipice, deal with the pandemic, revive the economy, and heal the divisive wounds inflicted up on us for the last four years.

    The Party of Trump, besides the duped and willfully ignorant, has now included the worst of weird and dangerous cults, as well as hostile foreign countries.

    The preference is obvious, regardless of what prostitute cartoonists present to you.

    Like the rest of the Red Menace, Ramirez is delusional. Whether he was born that way or drank the Red Kool-Aid later on in life is up for speculation, but here’s a little Red Menace challenge for ya’, Michael: Name me one, just ONE Moderate Republican. Take all the time you need. Remember, now, it can’t be anyone who supports Trump, so no cheating!

    We see you.

    The modern Democratic Party IS the political middle; Republikkkans have been pushing the dividing line between the parties further and further to the right for the last 60 years, so that what appears to the ill-informed (like ramirez) to be the middle is actually well to the right of center.The “mid-left” is the progressive wing of the Democratic Party, the “far-left” is the Communist Party.Meanwhile, the “mid-right” is the conservative wing of the Democratic Party, and the “far-right” is the heart of the Republikan Party. The “extreme-right” is the fascistic, authoritarian wing of the Republikkkan Party.
