Biden needs to tell the GSA to fund his transition. Bring the fire!

Trump is making Biden seem afraid to demand his place in history. Holding up the transition funds slows Biden's ability to manage the looming crisis Donald Trump is creating on purpose.

1. Biden taking out easy on Trump INC will only prove to others

that indeed bullies will always be on top, will always be the bosses and the meek, the mild mannered, the nice people will always be the loosers in the big picture.

Not a good one, but a purpose nevertheless.

A good offence destroys a good defence. I am afraid Biden may end up taking the blame for the traps Trump is setting.

18. I'm sure Biden has not considered any of this before determining how he should proceed.

It's too bad you aren't able to warn him. But your concern is noted here.

4. Biden has made it clear that he thinks GSA should fund the transition.

He can't order them to. And if there was a legal basis to sue GSA, I have no doubt such a lawsuit would have been brought. But it is generally accepted that the statute gives GSA discretion as to when and under what circumstances it is to issue a post-election ascertainment.

19. Have other senators and congress people calling the office of Emily W. Murphy everyday demanding

an update on her reasoning for not moving forward. Pressure.... bring it to a boiling point.

6. And then what after Biden tells them to do it and they don't?

because they don't report to him and, at this point, his telling them to do anything carries the same legal weight as you I telling them what to do.

25. They are only GSA. They work for the people of the United States.

It is only Emily Murphy. So you hold her accountable for any government money lost for not acting in a manner that best saves the government money overall.

She is directly responsible for how government money is spent. If her decisions lead to losses she can be made to pay for these losses.

That is pressure.

I did find this article while checking on Emily Murphy.

10. Biden should, Biden needs to

We can't control Biden and we need to trust his judgment after all the years he has in experience.

Bad guy does something, then how the victim reacts is the only thing we discuss. Why not discuss how the Big Toddler is being a sore loser and a baby once again, along with one of his followers (Emily) and how it's their fault the pandemic isn't handled well and they are making it worse by being sore losers. Why does the Democrat always get the blame?

And why is Dunning-Kruger disorder so pervasive? On the plus side, of course, at least those afflicted don't bash Democrats for that. Can't imagine why.

22. Dunning - Kruger is your straw-man argument

Yes, that is an interesting way to present a straw-man argument to ignore the original idea presented.

24. UCme, your messages are misaddressed. Would you like

me to post Biden's for you so you can warn him that he's appearing afraid and instruct him and his team on the actions they should be taking?

There are ways of expressing frustration without assuming weakness and incompetence in those far tougher and competent in their worst moments than those not forged in their fires will ever be. Directing emotional outbursts against the uncharged criminals on the right gets nothing but agreement here.

lawsuit to go forward...or ask Gothmog (lawyer). I for one have seen nothing.

That it was never needed. So, Bidenís legal options are really none existent

And the people voted in their candidate by a substantial majority, then it appears we donít need a GSA. The people have spoken. Put a boot in rumpís ass, swear in Joe, and Bobís your uncle.

idea that could possibly work. Truth is we are at Trumper's mercy and if Biden were to fight Trump...Trump would love it...he wants a fight...he is a bully.

28. Biden is not afraid. Biden is not the president. We have no way to make the GSA do their job.

It could be afterwards, we could lock up Emily so the next Trumper/shithead doesn't try it...Trump is President until January 20th and Biden's hands are tied. Save your negative posts for Trump...for fucks sake.

32. Wow, so DU'ers can't voice their opinion without being accused of insulting Biden?

I donít think your post insults Biden. Iíd like to see him get a little more fire in his approach to the transition myself.

Precedents are being set. Whatís going to happen the next time a Republican President loses?

It is my opinion (and Iím entitled to have one as are you and all other DUíers) that Biden needs to step up his game and let his efforts to do that be made more visible to his constituents. He will, after all, be working for us.

We have a dictator sitting in the White House getting away (literally) with murder right now and nothing is being done to stop him. Iím tired of being told to wait and see what happens. This should have been stopped long ago. There has got to be a way to keep Trump from killing us all just because thereís nothing the Dems can do. Itís not my job to figure out what can be done. But surely, there exists enough brain power in the Democratic Party with its leaders and lawyers and money to DO SOMETHING.
