Conservative New Hampshire paper backs Biden -- its first Democratic endorsement in 100 years

Source: CNN

The New Hampshire Union Leader, a conservative-leaning newspaper, has endorsed Democratic candidate Joe Biden for president, despite its century-long history of backing Republicans. In backing Biden, the newspaper endorsed its first Democratic candidate in over 100 years.

"Building this country up sits squarely within the skill set of Joseph Biden. We have found Mr. Biden to be a caring, compassionate and professional public servant," the Union Leader editorial board wrote on Sunday. "He has repeatedly expressed his desire to be a president for all of America, and we take him at his word."

The paper's editorial board did however highlight what it calls "significant" policy disagreements with Biden, which the board says it expects to spend a "portion of the next four years disagreeing with."

"Joe Biden may not be the president we want, but in 2020 he is the president we desperately need," the editorial continued. "He will be a president to bring people together and right the ship of state."

Trumper sign: make america safe again.

One of the oddest messages an incumbent campaign has ever concocted.

I get the obvious racist dog whistle, but seriously the klown is in charge already. Any lack of safety is on him.

My guess is that they bought their own bullshit that covid would be gone by now and that they could run against the protests of last summer. Only they got it exactly backwards. The protests are mostly gone, the virus is spiraling out of control again.

The Post Office has been ordered to obstruct voting by mail.

I went to my post office this morning to hand in my absentee ballot and the clerk informed me that they have been ordered to NOT process absentee ballots directly (by transferring them to the town clerks office directly) but must instead process them as regular mail. transferring them to the regional processing center.

The only reason for this order is delay and obstruct voting.

I am fucking furious.

So Mr. Trump has had his OJ ride moment.

Kind of hard to see how he comes back from this one.
