Default Biden's Over/Under guess

Now that Raazor has received his game winning bowl for getting the electoral college total the most correct, how about another game.

this one could take longer to determine a winner, so be patient.

the game is: How long will Biden last as President?

beginning on Jan. 20, 2021, how many days/weeks/months/years will Biden be President?

you could guess all 4 years, or anything shorter than that. or name a date when he will no longer be President. however you wish to frame it.

Winner will be determined by the closest guess to the actual answer as determined by history.

the prize? well, you get a pat on the head, you can say "C'mon Man" all you want, and I might throw in another bowl made in my shop.

i'll begin: Biden will only last 2 years.

He's done before January of 2022. Hell, I'm going to guess within 8 months since his dimentia is getting worse and he won't be able to handle the stress of the job.

America elected an anti-colonial, Marxist Kenyan. I think we'd be just fine with electing a Canadian.....just need some birth certificate magic like Obama had and the support of Dominion voting systems and voila! Meet President Snide!

Of course, unless Snide makes a hard turn to the left, yes, it's a practical impossibility that he will be 'elected.'

I think he will try to serve two years plus one day. That will allow Harris to finish his initial term and she could still serve two more full terms if elected. Of course she will be calling the shots long before Biden steps down

Only semi related but I was curious about a data point because I used the concept as a reference without having an actual number. I said more than once, regarding voter fraud, that the US certainly helped place leaders in other countries and had plenty of practice and time to perfect it here. I randomly guessed we did it a dozen times and was shocked to find this...

According to one study, the U.S. performed at least 81 overt and covert known interventions in foreign elections during the period 19462000. Another study found that the U.S. engaged in 64 covert and six overt attempts at regime change during the Cold War.

...Yet somehow it is inconceivable that it could POSSIBLY happen here. The absurdity of the denial is laughable...except that it is also frightening.

back in 1973 or 1974, my dad worked for the Fed. Gov., and one small perk back then was that they would invite different agencies to provide "people" to be representative of the American people at White House events. well, they called his number one day, and so we all went down to the White House for the morning. we were the background for Nixon receiving the Shah of Iran that day. they handed out little USA flags and little Persian flags (my sister got one of those), that we waved in a good, patriotic manner.

and we all now know that the Shah was propped up by our CIA until he was deposed by the current thugs that still run that place into the ground.

we thought he'd be someone we could work with, in terms of suppressing the spread of communism and also getting some reliable oil. oops.

Biden is already bragging that there are over 20,000 guests that have been camped out to see him get sworn in.
