Is this the American politics thread or the thread where we choose a name for the American politics thread?

Seriously, if everyone has to Google what the thread title even means it's not a good title. You can slander centrists in a more obvious way, otherwise whenever anyone sees this thread pop-up they're just going to think "Brunch sounds yummy".

Clearly not everyone had to google it though.

Anyways, there are some really good aspects of the Biden plan laid out here:

And it's utterly hilarious because Rube obviously started it to dunk on the Biden plan, then the whole plan comes out and....derp.

I'm perfectly fine with walking back stuff and admitting when I jumped the gun with a hot take. You should try it some time.

I mean that's nice and all, and good for him owning up. But if the next four years are going to be nothing but progressives getting riled up and pissed off at any perceived shortcoming, even if it's before the actual evidence comes out, we're in for a long four years. Be pissed when there's a real reason to be, not just because you hate centrists and want someone further left to be...well totally unable to pass any legislation, but damn they'll propose it at least.

You know centrist is such a silly label, most centrists are left leaning and share much more with progressives than MAGAs. It's just we know America is the place where Lauren Boebert can be an actual person who gets to vote on bills, so you recognize that getting an actual progressive idea passed is mighty tough (just remember how impossible getting the Public Option, which was actually popular, passed was). Does watering everything down suck? Yeah, but America is what it is at this point. Until MAGA is successful at seceding the South, just don't get your hopes up I guess.

Is Centrist now a bad name? I thought the US was a bit loony for thinking "socialism" was an insult...
