Question about the timing of Biden's speech

At this point, primaries are over and many of the sane Republicans lost to MAGAts. Would it have been better to do this speech earlier in the year? Or would it have galvanized the cult even further and wed still be in this same place?

Although Biden appealed by name to sane Republicans, the real audience must have been the independents, the undecideds, the apathetic, the both-parties-are-the-same crowd.

Hopefully, his timing, two months before the election, was spot on and will help with GOTV. Too many Americans have a notoriously short attention span.

Thoughts?

1. Perfectly timed

Most people dont pay attention before Labor Day
J6 hearings were earlier
Better economic news now
Dont interfere with GOP primaries

2. I think the speech was a prelude to coming

arrests/inditements.

He may well address the country again closer to the midterms.

9. That was a thought I had too.

He may be trying to prepare us for the MAGATS to go apeshit.

3. should make for some fun family BBQs

Seriously, from a political calculus point of view. The GOP has locked in their fascist MAGA candidates. Now is the time to call them out and the threat they pose to our country

5. I think it is delusional to consider that the MAGATS are not representative of the Republican's

billionaires owners.

13. Yes, but, in many cases MAGAts have become a liability...

Biden's economy has actually helped many in the top tier of the economy, even while helping many at the bottom.

Corporate types don't generally like chaos, it's bad for business.

6. Folks are focusing on

What the speech means to Republicans.

I'm focused on what the speech meant to me- the party base. Not a single Republican was swayed by that last night.

But Democratic Party Base members? Good! Lets get out there and bring the fuckers to heel until they admit Biden won the election.

7. It was timed well if the purpose was to give Republicans one last chance to dump Trump.

They can agree with Biden and walk away from the man who stole state secrets or they can defend him still.

Most have taken a pass when presented with that option in the past. I think they many many reconsider their past decision and take the opportunity.

8. Given that the MAGA't Republicans are a threat to democracy

Why did Dems enable them by donating money to their primary campaigns? Didnt make any sense to me; what if they win?

11. My wld guess:

I think that DOJ connected ALL the dots, not only where the classified docs ended up (TFG meetings in person with Orban, Moe Bone Saw, et. al.) BUT ALSO, who did what in the fake elector plot, the inside jobs in the house of representatives, Capitol Police and National Guard restraints,
"The Willard"

and the "Pipe Bomber"
So, there are no loose ends.

12. Timing is great. It kicks off the election season...

MAGAs are gone anyway. We need to motivate base and Indies to rally against the MAGA candidates in the general.
