First off, Biden already has a transition team? WTF is that?

What a completely horsefeathers article. After that headline, the best they could muster was “sources say they are open to looking at people”. I guess they need something to write in a 10 point race.

Totally normal.

The transition process begins as leading presidential contenders forming a transition team to start making preliminary plans for building an administration and assuming the presidency should they be elected. This can take place at any time of the candidate’s choosing. Candidate Mitt Romney established a transition team in June 2012 (after some preparatory work in April and May), which was before he became the Republican Party nominee. Barack Obama followed a similar timeline for establishing his transition team in 2008. During the 2016 presidential election cycle, in 2016, Donald Trump began assembling his transition team in May, after he became the presumptive Republican nominee. His fall campaign opponent, Hillary Clinton, lagged behind in this regard, not forming a team until August, which was after she became the Democratic Party nominee.[7]

No, I was just trying to write something that's as ridiculous as that horsefeathers up truck guess I succeeded.

Biden will not face such levels of obstruction sure, they'll be some along party lines but, not what Obama faced. There's one and only one reason Obama faced such levels of obstruction and it had nothing to do with his attempt at bipartisanship or party.

Really? You don't think racism played a big horsefeathering part in the difficulties Obama faced? You think Biden is going to face those same difficulties? Its going to no where near what Obama faced, I didn't say the GOP still wouldn't be massive pricks.

Less racism difficulties. More GOP is set on destroying our country difficulties.

No, I don't think the GOP will suddenly be less obstructionist once the Dem in the white house is white

Thankfully, they will be less obstructionist once they are the minority in both the House and Senate.

They'll also be less obstructionist when their faces turn blue and they die.
