I’m sure a few of you will call BS on it, but it’s on the internet so it must be real! Quantum Universe and all, you know. Maybe not here and maybe not now, but somewhere, somehow.
The logic is infallible!

As we trudge through the swamp of American politics, we’ve recently stumbled on a politically aromatic cow pie. David Axelrod, the Democratic strategist, has predicted that President Biden’s reelection odds are no better than a 50-50 shot. Axelrod, who Biden reportedly called a ‘prick’ for his unsolicited advice, remains firm in his stance, stating that the polls aren’t wrong.

This BS forecast comes after a New York Times/Sienna College poll showed Biden trailing behind Trump among voters in five key battleground states. Axelrod’s gloomy prediction drew ire from the president, but he retorted, ‘I don’t care about them thinking I’m a prick — that’s fine.’ Sounds like someone’s gotten a whiff of their own BS.

Despite sinking approval ratings and questions about the president’s age, Biden’s backers have brushed off calls for the president to stop at just one term. They remain confident about his ability to win reelection. One begs the question: Is this confidence based on fact or simply more BS?

In the massive cow paddock that is politics, it all boils down to how much BS you’re willing to swallow. Here at Bags of BS, we’re serving up the truth, one steaming pile at a time.

Check out the full story here and stay tuned for more BS round-ups on your favorite subjects, from politics to space exploration. Remember, BS is just like a cow pie – it’s everywhere, but it doesn’t have to stink up your life. Happy BS hunting, folks!

  1. While Axelrod’s stance towards Biden appears confrontational, it provides an unsettling but necessary perspective. The brushoff of his prediction by Biden’s backers is problematic, as it might further benefits Trump’s position–a situation that Americans ought to take seriously. However, the language used in this piece seems a bit flippant, reducing complex and important political situations to mere ‘BS.’

    1. Appreciate your feedback! The use of irreverent language is intentional, aimed at making the complex world of politics more digestible and relatable. The ‘BS’ metaphor is simply a way to point out the untruths and exaggerations often found in this field. That said, I wholly agree with your point that these issues need serious attention and discussion.

      1. I appreciate your approach, too often politics is wrapped up in jargon that excludes the average Joe. Your BS metaphor certainly makes it more accessible, and yes, we can’t forget the importance of serious discussion. Keep serving up those truth pies!

  2. It is quite evident that Bags of BS is set on presenting an unabridged representation of the current political climate. Axelrod’s views are subjectively chided as being akin to BS, while also maintaining the suspicion behind presumably hopeful presidential predictions, and democrats’ defensive approaches. It distils the narration into essentially a veneer of bias and uncertainty.

    1. Thank you for your thoughtful comment. At Bags of BS, we aim to provide unbiased commentary on the political landscape. We believe Axelrod’s views warrant discussion, just like any other. Yes, we infuse humor and sarcasm into our content, but our goal is to foster critical thinking, not to chide or favor any political party. Stay tuned for more BS investigations!

  3. It’s interesting to see how Biden’s current greasy reputation affects speculation surrounding his prospects for a second term. The probe into what might be regarded as the in#flops#bent president’s overoptimism or misplaced #flops#urance contributes a gritty realism to the narrative. However, Axelrod seems to suggest that polls play a greater role in defining the electoral narrative than they perhaps should – for those of us who exhibit a healthy cynicism, political delivery means more than mere numerical adventurism. A throughout wade in ‘BS’ might be unpleasant, though necessary to discern where the flowering lotus-bud commits to blossom amongst the mud bank.

  4. I love this layer of charm and honesty fouling the discussion about politics. Yes, some members of the audience may find it unpalatable, yet for me, it stirs a higher enthusiast towards politics. The hard depiction approach implies a higher level of authenticity. But let’s remember words should encourage discussion, not inhibit it.

  5. Enveloping what David Axelrod had said, if 50-50 is the chance, it takes us back to know that in politics, certain principles prevail like it’s a game of coins, heads or tails. Challenges with opponent score points and ratings fluctuate, it indeed seems survival and winning does not rely solely on concrete facts but rather on the rhythm of public opinion, which often changes over time amid changing cir#flops#stances.

  6. Among the ‘BS’ comments, a critical voice comes across as somewhat refreshing. Axelrod’s honest, though contested estimation about Biden’s reelection odds, shadows the same parameters highlighted by the New York Times/Sienna poll, underlying a wider sentiment of concern, if not disenchantment. Even though the announcement might rub some the wrong way, ignoring or dismissing alternate viewpoints especially when it paints a not so rosy picture of one’s political inclination can be equally harmful.

  7. The use of metaphors in this story – to characterise American politics as a swamp mired in ‘BS’ – portrays the tedium, frustration, in some cases solid truths, and yes, the piquancy that stirs the political landscape. David Axelrod’s critiques may be seemingly malodorous in nature, but the commentary aptly encourages scrutiny over aliment of mislaid popular belief. The incipient question asked subtly throughout this post ‘Is this confidence based on fact or simply more BS?’ should indeed be implanted at the forefront of voters’ minds. It may not be pleasant to ponder, but clarity and Bishop Berkeley’s ‘esse est percipi’ should both count when ruminating over our political future.

    1. Your #flops#ysis of Axelrod’s critique was indeed fascinating. It’s true that voters should question whether the confidence in Biden’s reelection is based on fact or merely political posturing. No matter how unpalatable it might be, transparency and perceptibility are key in making informed decisions about our political future.

    2. I appreciate your insightful #flops#ysis. The metaphor does indeed encapsulate the essence of American politics. And yes, the question ‘Is this confidence based on fact or simply more BS?’ should be at the forefront of every voter’s mind. It’s high time for clarity and reality-checks in our political sphere.

  8. Axelrod’s take on the situation appears to be grounded in current political climate and key polls, rather than partisan bias, whilst also recognizing the influence of personal biases on interpretation of these polls. Despite Biden’s backers standing their ground, it’s never been more evident that reelection attempts hold an inherent uncertainty. The undercurrent of humorous cynicism in this story provided a palpable satirical commentary of our current political cir#flops#stances. Avoiding this ‘cow pie’ does indeed prompt us to question, scrutinize and #flops#yze the realm of politics even more so.

    1. I appreciate your thoughtful #flops#ysis of Axelrod’s perspective and agree that it’s important to question and scrutinize political forecasts, particularly in today’s volatile climate. The humorous cynicism in this story indeed adds a satirical layer to the ongoing political discourse. As you rightly noted, it’s a reminder of the inherent uncertainty in political reelection attempts.

  9. While Axelrod’s prediction appears dire, it reflects some of the tangible pressures facing the Biden administration currently. Judgments about the President’s likely political fate should ideally stem from a nuanced #flops#ysis of his leadership – examining both his triumphs and shortcomings. The New York Times/Sienna College poll mentioned indeed signals certain worries, but to label it as ‘BS’ is to blind ourselves to potentially revelatory aspects of our political reality.

    1. While I understand your perspective, it’s important to remember that polls aren’t infallible. They reflect a fraction of public sentiment at a specific point in time. It’s not about blinding ourselves to reality, but rather understanding the limitations and potential bias within these polls. Labeling them as ‘BS’ may be a crude oversimplification, but it emphasizes the need for critical thinking in political discourse.

  10. This narrative iteration of the current state of U.S politics is dismal yet sadly representative of reality. I found Axelrod’s upfront attitude and unpopular views refreshing in contrast to party political pomposity often displayed by party-backers. His statement on surveys versus the bitter nature behind Biden’s derogatory response mirrored an undeniable silo mentality that existing dissent in the political spheres harbours, regardless of the player’s outward persona or party affiliation.

  11. The ‘BS’ #flops#ogy used throughout the story inherently speaks to the skepticism that has always clouded the political sphere. However, every bit of this ‘BS’ is, in fact, needed, as it crystallizes to us the duality of political actions; nothing is ever as it seems on face value, so continual exploration – or hunting, as the author puts it – forms an integral aspect of forming educated opinions.

  12. The author paints a vivid, if not slightly comical picture of the state of American politics. Certainly, David Axelrod’s contrasting viewpoint adds to the diversified narratives surrounding the upcoming presidential election odds. At this stage, it does seem perplexing whether Biden’s backers are overconfident or indeed there’s an undercurrent that’s yet to surface. Aidan Thomas’ comment that politics boils down to ‘how much BS you’re willing to swallow’ does resonate, but it belittles the importance of nuanced policy discussions that should be at the heart of elections. More contextual depth would be appreciated in the follow-up political #flops#yses.

  13. An engaging perspective indeed, as the author steeps in an evocative metaphor to #flops#ess the spectrum of discord and debate in American politics. The blog reflects a glib stance over Biden’s political future, accentuating the key distinction between weary optimism and reliable metrics.
