  1. I am sure Joe will do just fine.

    Meanwhile, providing the counter point, Sara Huckabee. If that is their best foot forward, please play through.

    I hope he highlights his accomplishments in as many ways as possible with concrete examples.

  3. Using a threat to popular programs “as a cudgel” only works if you’re brandishing it at someone who perceives it as a cudgel. But since acting on the threat would only injure the GOP, it isn’t really “as a cudgel” as much as “as a limp noodle with a yellow tag that says ‘cudgel’ on it.”

  4. Biden needs to aggressively paint republicans as deadbeats who want to run out on bills and ruin the country’s credit rating so they can renegotiate laws and spending that have already been approved.

    That’s not how this works and President Biden needs to explain it to them like they’re preschoolers. He’s too classy to do it, but I wish he’d mention how some republican members of the House had to have the difference between the debt ceiling a government shutdown explained to them. This is what we’re working with.

  5. Biden has the most domestic and international successes of any administration in more than fifty years and I hope he makes the most of them tonight.
