Joe Biden is a man most Americans like. He will bring back honesty and integrity to the White House. And just like President Obama, we will have a positive role model for our grandchildren.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hillary was a better candidate than Biden. She motivated women voters and she had a sharper mind.

 

Donald Trump had the perfect opponent in the 2016 election. Running as a populist billionaire taking on the Washington elite, he couldn’t have asked for a better rival in Hillary Clinton, who carried heavy political baggage and personified the so-called establishment.
The Democrats simply let Trump run as the anti-establishment candidate.


Here was a man who had openly bragged about bribing politicians, yet Democrats couldn’t go after Trump on the issue because their own candidate was one of the politicians to whom he’d donated in the past.


This time around, Trump should have zero credibility running as a “populist.”


The surest way for Democrats to lose to Trump again would be to follow the same strategy as 2016 and nominate a candidate who embodies the establishment, carries a ton of political baggage and lacks credibility on issues like corruption.
By the looks of it, Democrats might repeat 2016.


By selecting Biden, Democrats will effectively let Trump and his deeply corrupt administration off the hook yet again.
Beyond Biden's extremely problematic record, which will make it hard for Democrats to go after Trump about, say, cutting Social Security (which Biden himself supported not too long ago), Biden has his own personal scandals that will make it very difficult for him to cast Trump as corrupt.
While his son Hunter’s business dealings in Ukraine may not qualify as corruption, it was doubtless unethical and sleazy for Biden’s son to take a high-paying consultant gig with a foreign firm while his father was vice president (and Biden’s refusal to acknowledge this conflict only makes it worse).
The behavior of Biden’s family will haunt him in the general election.
Predictably, a majority of voters believe it was inappropriate for Biden’s son to take a job with the Ukrainian firm, and Trump will exploit this and use it to defend his own family’s nepotism and corruption.


In the lead-up to the general election, Biden, who has recently struggled to string coherent sentences together, would provide the slick demagogue Donald Trump with all the ammunition he needs.


No one stands to benefit more from an establishment triumph in the Democratic Primary than Donald Trump.
Sen. Bernie Sanders has the credibility to call out Trump on his corruption and neoliberal economic policies.


Democrats have a choice: They can follow the same strategy that ended up costing them all three branches of government in recent years, or they can go another way. The stakes couldn’t be higher.

Joe Biden will emphasize Health insurance / Health Care. Instead of almost doubling the cost of the federal government, which is what Bernie's plans would do, Biden wants to enhance and improve Obamacare. I agree that is the most cost efficient, practical, and legislatively possible approach.. 

 

With Biden, you will once again see U.S. support for our NATO allies. He won't be following orders from Vladimir, as Trump does. And he won't be sending love letters to brutal North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. 

 

We will have a president who respects the rule of law, which means an Independent Justice Department and an independent judiciary.

 

Unlike Bernie, Biden is very popular in the all important purple (battleground) states where voters want a mainstream candidate. They don't want Bernie, who will double the GDP portion of the federal goverment from 22 to 44 percent. In sum, Bernie is not mainstream and that's what you need to win the purple states.

 

In every way imaginable, Biden will be 25 times better than Trump. 

 

Although Joe hasn't asked me, I would recommend Stacy Abrams or Kamala Harris as his running mate.

My sister called me last night.


My sister is as anti-Trump as they come. Her husband is 100% pro-Trump.


A day doesn't go by without her getting upset over something Trump said, did, or Tweeted. She gets her news from ABC and CNN.
The last time I visited her home she gave me a book called "Everything Trump Touches Dies" by Rick Wilson. I haven't read it yet. Maybe someday I will get around to it.


I don't fully understand her reasoning when choosing candidates, but she stands firm on her choices.
She supported Hillary in 2016 and never gave Bernie a second thought. This year she originally supported Kamala Harris. It had something to do with the Kavanaugh Hearings.
When Kamala dropped out, she decided she would vote for Mayor Bloomberg. She has friends who are New Yorkers and she (we) grew up just outside NYC.


So, she called me last night and the first question she asked me "Did you hear? Mayor Bloomberg dropped out." I told her I had heard.


Then, what she said next really surprised me.


She said "It looks like I'll be voting for Bernie."


Curious, I asked her why not Elizabeth Warren or Joe Biden? She said Elizabeth Warren is too nasty, and Biden is "not playing with a full deck". Then the word 'dementia' came up.


I left it at that as I was glad she was "Feeling the Bern".


I asked her if it was okay if I told her son (my nephew) that she's going to vote for Bernie, since I was about to answer his text message. She said she didn't mind me telling him.
Her son and his wife support Bernie, as they did in 2016.

I am so glad to see such fervor in a Trump follower. but, I will disagree with you in one issue. These are not the 2016 elections in which, Clinton was such a bed candidate, that I had to close my eyes and pinch my nose to be able to make myself vote for her. and so much of the Independent voters in 2016. You will not able to compare these past 4 years, with the last 4 years of Obana  in a million years. and now that we all know what Trump can really bring to his country. I have not doubt that if they have known that Clinton would have been President. after all she did win the popular vote.

Here we go again. Now that Biden is back on top, the never ending series of character attacks has begun. How low will Trump supporters sink this time? 

 

By the way, it's not true about Joe Biden, but I would take a senior moment any time over a pathological LIAR in the White House, who insults others every day of the week.

Good morning to all- I, too, have moments when things are not as clear and focused as I would like. That comes with age and experience, and the schedule and demands of political campaigning would stress anyone- regardless of age. However, real-world age and experience bring with them wisdom and the ability to see things as they are- not as how an individual would want them to be. Give me an elder with real world experience and real world life-learning to be a leader- not some born-rich, selfish, spoiled, corrupt, "reality TV star" who can not see what is real for his desires getting in the way. We have been cursed for too long by the current occupant of the White House and his even more corrupt supporters. Those who support and enable tRump to act on his vile desires are even more to blame for the current mess- and I also mean the economic mess that real middle and lower class Americans are dealing with now- and those who support the Orange Bloat must be sent packing back home to stew in their own poison. Vote the garbage out- we can do better. good day to all- Ed

A rare and inconsequential "senior moment" is infinitely preferable to the ToadPOTUS forever locked in mental and emotional infancy. Likewise having such a wide range of experiences that sometimes they become "mixed" is a breath of fresh air after 3 1/2 years of pathalogical lies from the certifiable psychopathic gutless draft dodger lil donny tRump.

Joe Biden and his ‘senior moments’

547 Views

Democrats should be wary of backing Joe Biden and his ‘senior moments’

 

BY:  Miranda Devine

 

What Super Tuesday tells us is that a lot of Democrats would rather risk losing to President Trump with Joe Biden than allow a socialist like Bernie Sanders to hijack their party.

 

That’s good for America, but it’s also a treacherous Hail Mary pass for the party.

The 77-year-old former vice president showed why, moments after taking the stage in Los Angeles on Tuesday night: He mistook his wife for his sister.

 

“They switched on me,” he tried to explain.

 

He went on to give a good speech about healing the nation, and dutifully kept to the script on his teleprompter.

 

But then a protester leaped on stage and Biden’s wife, Jill, 68, instinctively stepped between him and the lunging vegan, grabbed the woman by the wrists and shoved her away.

It was a heroic performance, but it also showed Biden’s peculiar passivity: He just stood there, not reacting, as his wife went into physical battle for him.

 

When the scuffle was over, he placed a protective arm on her back, but it was as if he didn’t realize what had just happened.

 

The truth is that anyone who has seen Biden up close knows he has some sort of cognitive impairment. He often seems bewildered, can’t remember what state he is in, if he’s running for the Senate or the presidency or even whether it’s Super Tuesday or “Super Thursday.”

On Monday, in Texas, he forgot the words of the Declaration of Independence mid-sentence, substituting “the thing” for God.

 

“We hold these truths to be self-evident,” he began. “All men and women created by the [pause, consternation, hands waving] go, you know, you know, the thing.”

It’s sad to see the fear in his face when he suffers these “senior moments.”

 

Everyone has memory lapses, but the problem for Biden is that his are all too frequent and bizarre, and the attempt to explain them away as a function of his childhood stutter are only a temporary diversion.

 

These are not just the tall tales and malapropisms that long have been part of the Biden persona. It’s something new.

 

We know he underwent surgery for two brain aneurysms in 1988, although his surgeon, Dr. Neal Kassell, recently said Biden did not suffer any brain damage “whatsoever.”

But the kindness that has suppressed any honest discussion about Biden’s mental acuity will be swept away if he wins the nomination.

 

The campaign can’t keep him in witness protection forever. At some point, he’ll be caught without the teleprompter, and an off-the-cuff Joe is a ticking time bomb.

As soon as voters saw him up close and personal in Iowa and New Hampshire, the light switched on for them that the lights weren’t all on with him.

 

That’s when his poll numbers started plunging.

 

He was low energy and frequently befuddled. If he were your grandfather, you’d take away the car keys. His aides hauled around a teleprompter to small gatherings so he safely could deliver a stump speech that any other candidate could do in their sleep, but even then, he strayed off course.

It got to the point where Democratic insiders in New Hampshire started a story that Biden’s heart wasn’t in it, that he was running only to fulfill a promise he had made to his dying son, Beau.

To be fair, his team had always said to wait until the South Carolina primary, where his appeal to black voters would kick in.

 

Sure enough, 72 hours after a resounding victory there, he defied even the most optimistic expectations with his Super Tuesday triumph at the expense of Sen. Bernie Sanders. Now he’s the “Comeback Kid” with “Joementum.”

 

He won states in which he had no campaign offices, no money, and which he barely visited. That’s impressive, but what it also tells you is that a lot of Democrats went for the “idea” of Biden: the decent, compassionate, moderate candidate they desperately want to believe exists.

They didn’t want a revolution or free stuff or an autocratic billionaire. So they closed their eyes and signed up for the Biden mirage.

 

But if, by some miracle he does happen to become president, how would he fare dealing with Russian autocrat Vladimir Putin or Chinese President Xi Jinping? Would he have the bandwidth to manage war and the economy at a time of global turmoil?

 

How would he cope with 14-hour days, having to jump off Air Force One straight into the heat of India for meetings and outdoor rallies, and then race back to handle a pandemic?

Jill obviously feels he needs protecting, even from small vegans. How do we know that if Biden became president, he wouldn’t be a puppet manipulated by others?

 

A couple of weeks ago, he promised not to seek a second term “if anything changed in my health, making it incapable for me to fully exert all the energy and mental acuity that was needed.”

Who votes for a president who admits he doesn’t have the juice for two terms?

The Democratic-friendly media may nurse him through the campaign, but President Trump will be merciless to “Sleepy Joe.”

 

The party machine knows this. They are throwing him to the wolves.

It’s cruel to him and it’s a dirty trick to play on voters.

 

Schu’s shame

 

What a disgraceful fraud Chuck Schumer is, telling Trump-appointed Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh that they will “pay the price” unless they do what he wants.

 

If anyone else threatened a judge, they’d be arrested.

“You have released the whirlwind,” he said, directing the comment at the justices as he addressed protesters in front of the court as it considers a Louisiana law requiring abortion doctors to have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of the clinic.

 

But it’s a good law for women. You just have to remember abortionist butcher Kermit Gosnell, a k a “America’s Biggest Serial Killer,” to know why health authorities should not give free rein to abortion clinics.

 

Show some grace, Liz

 

If Elizabeth Warren can’t win the votes of the people who know her best, in her home state of Massachusetts, she’s finished. It’s a lame excuse from her supporters that she can’t quit the presidential race because that would disillusion little girls who look up to her as a role model. No, the message she sends them by clinging on is that humility, grace and self-knowledge are for suckers.
