News and commentary about former Vice-President Joe Biden
campaign begins not with a bang, but a whimper. [Scroll down] The crowd [in Philadelphia, 5/18/2019] was
similarly wan. Attempts at starting a "We Want Joe!" cheer petered out after no more than five chants. A woman in
front of me remarked that she came out of curiosity, but was really interested in Pete Buttigieg, the wunderkind mayor of
South Bend, Indiana. Another recounted how Obama rallies felt like "rock concerts." This, not so much. [...] What
was audible was less than impressive. Mr. Biden stumbled over his teleprompter-delivered words, at one point
suggesting that the Constitution was ratified in 1887. He delivered policy-free peans to "unity," punctuated with an
overabundance of the word "folks." He also has an odd habit of, every now and again, stressing that he actually means what
he just said. "Really, guys!" Or, "I'm not joking!" This has the odd implication that the vice president
doesn't mean much of what he says.
country, promise unity. His sales pitch is to be practical. Actually telling people the crazy thing that
you will do won't win the election. You have to pretend to be moderate. [...] Sleepy Creepy Joe has been doing that for
nearly 50 years. He believes in incremental communism just like his mentor, Obama. This is what Democrats have done
all my life. His job is to convince President Trump supporters that he is no threat to them and he will calm the waters.
Post Gives Biden 4 Pinocchios for Claiming Only the Rich Got Trump Tax Cuts. One of the misperceptions of the
tax cut is that because tax refunds have been relatively flat when compared to last year that most people didn't get a tax
cut without taking into consideration the adjustment in the tax withholding tables which added roughly $25 per week to the
average paycheck. A point the media rarely mentions. The Post contacted the Biden campaign and received the
standard line about the tax cuts being a giveaway for the wealthy and big corporations and gave Biden the maximum four
Pinocchios for misstating the facts.
Was Projecting When He Called Trump 'Divider-in-Chief'. Was Joe Biden projecting when he called Donald Trump
the "divider-in-chief" in his big campaign speech in Philadelphia Saturday? The former Veep proposed — in
imitation of his one-time boss and apparent idol Barack Obama — that he would be the man to unite our riven
country. Remember "There is not a liberal America and a conservative America — there is the United States of
America" from Obama's keynote at the 2004 Democratic National Convention, the speech that ignited his march to the
presidency? How far did that go? Just about as far as Barack dismissing Republicans as those who cling to their
guns and religion and Hillary calling Trump supporters a "basket of deplorables." Very uniting stuff, no? But more
to the point, Biden represents a political party that could not accept the 2016 election of Donald Trump on any level, before
or after his victory.
were said to be furious and hungry for change. Then Biden jumped in. Former vice president Joe Biden
defends his support for the 1994 crime bill that many blame for mass incarceration of blacks. He declares that most
Americans are "satisfied" with a private insurance system reviled by the left. He justifies the North American Free
Trade Agreement as a pact that "made sense at the moment."
Joe Biden Jumps On The Dem/Socialist Caravan of Crazies. Aside from expecting to deliver President Donald
Trump's head on a silver platter to slobbering Democrats, former vice president Joe Biden is in the 2020 presidential race
because most people who voted for Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012, will now vote for Biden. The DNC, who know this, see
Biden as their only chance to regain control of the power they lost in 2016. In a speech Saturday afternoon [5/18/2019]
in Philadelphia, Biden offered his "unity" as an alternative to "Trump's hatred".
Media at Their Lowest. On any number of subjects, building a wall between Mexico and the United States being a
current topic of the day, there are literally dozens of video recordings of Democrats contradicting themselves from the
position they took even a decade ago. Joe Biden once pounded the pulpit demanding that we build a wall. With Joe
Biden as the Democratic frontrunner for U.S. president, you've seen that contradiction reported all over the national
mainstream media, haven't you? Contrast that with anything and everything Donald Trump says. The media are quick
to pull any quote, any tweet out of context or bend it out of shape to promote the narrative that the president is an
dollar China deals, cocaine pipes, Joe Biden's son Hunter always has this way of skating. Joe Biden's son
Hunter certainly lives a life of privilege. How [would] the cops treat one of us if they found a cocaine pipe in our
car during a traffic pullover or a rental car return?
Arizona Police Report: Cocaine Pipe Found in Car Rented by Joe Biden's Son Hunter Biden, Authorities Declined to
Prosecute. Breitbart News has exclusively obtained a heretofore unreported-on police report from days before
the 2016 presidential election that describes how a cocaine pipe that authorities determined was used to smoke cocaine was
found in a rental car returned to an Arizona Hertz location in the middle of the night. Also found in the vehicle were
several personal effects of Hunter Biden, then-Vice President Joe Biden's son, like two of his DC driver's licenses, multiple
credit cards, and personally identifying information like a Delaware Attorney General badge and a U.S. Secret Service
business card that police said bore his name.
Biden is Red China's
boy. Sleepy Creepy Joe is running for president for the emoluments. Oh the payoffs from foreign
governments do not go to him. No, no, no. It's for the children. His rat son, Hunter, became a
multi-millionaire thanks to his Hair Sniffing Father's vice presidency. [...] The New York Post reported that when Sleepy
Creepy Joe became vice president his son and John Kerry's stepson went into business.
Biden: 'Not a Single Bit of Evidence' Son Asked Me to Help Him in Ukraine. Former Vice President Joe Biden
denied Monday that his son Hunter Biden asked him for a favor in Ukraine while serving on the energy board of a Ukrainian
energy company. "We never once discussed it when he was there," Biden told the Associated Press. "There's not a
single bit of evidence that's been shown in any reporting that's been done that he ever talked about it with me or asked any
government official for a favor."
Biden's Denial About Ukraine Investigating His Son Is a Total Dodge. Former Vice President Joe Biden issued a
painfully careful, hair-splitting denial about the allegations surrounding his son Hunter Biden's lucrative dealings in
Ukraine. [...] So, basically the allegation is this: To protect his son's company and that sweet, sweet $50,000 per
month salary, as vice president, Biden abused his position by threatening to kill a billion dollars in aid to one of our
allies if that country's prosecutor, who was looking into corruption surrounding Hunter's company, was not fired.
Are Green Phonies. [T]he Democratic Party at the moment seems to be in a knockdown, drag-out fight for who can
be the greenest of the green and push us forward to a brave new world propelled exclusively by solar and wind energy.
Only the strongest (i. e. most slavishly devoted to renewable energy at all costs) will survive. Bernie and AOC are
currently beating Joe Biden over the head about this. Poor Joe is frantically shoring up his "environmental" credentials.
Biden and restoring the old (pre-Trump) order. Polls do not tell us who will win an election months from
now. But they do tell us what is happening at this moment. And at this moment, Democratic voters, who are
sometimes said to be moving left and itching to transform the United States with a "Green New Deal," "Medicare for All," and
through-the-roof taxes on the rich, are in fact responding to a decidedly more centrist appeal. That appeal, from
Biden, is a promise not to fundamentally remake American society but to restore things to the way they used to be. And
"the way they used to be" means before President Trump.
enlists teleprompter as ally in anti-gaffe strategy. Campaigning for president in the small states with early
primaries is supposed to be retail politicking, but gaffe-prone 2020 front-runner Joe Biden's handlers are leaving nothing to
chance, deploying a teleprompter to help him stay on message. Appearing in here in Manchester, N.H., before a crowd of
400, Biden's people rolled out a teleprompter despite the relative intimacy of the gathering.
Obama's teleprompter addiction.
Biden to Woman Who Says Trump is 'An Illegitimate President': 'I Absolutely Agree'. Former Vice President and
current Democratic presidential primary frontrunner Joe Biden said "I absolutely agree" with a woman who described herself as
having a "very severe case of Trump Derangement Syndrome," and said that Trump "is an illegitimate president." Biden
took questions from audience members at a campaign event in Nashua, NH n Tuesday, after delivering a fire-up speech about why
he's running for president. The third audience member to address Biden didn't really have a question, but rather a
lengthy message about how Democrats should oppose Donald Trump.
The Editor says...
Was Barack H. Obama "an Illegitimate President?" There are
questions about his citizenship, his
legal name, and his Social Security number. But anyone who dares to raise these questions is smeared as a "truther."
There are no such questions about Donald Trump. He was legally and properly elected, and just as it was under Obama,
the people who voted for somebody else have to get over it.
at Green New Deal rally, puts Joe Biden and other Democratic climate moderates on notice. Speaking at a crowded
auditorium at Howard University, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and other proponents of the Green New
Deal — an ambitious plan to rid the U.S. economy of a reliance on fossil fuels — affirmed their
progressive ideals while striking out at both conservative Republicans and moderate Democrats who have, according to her and
other critics, done too little about global warming for too long. In particular, Ocasio-Cortez, who is in her first
term as a congresswoman representing the Bronx and Queens, seemed to criticize Joe Biden, who entered the U.S. Senate in
1973, 16 years before she was born.
Defense Secretary questions Biden's 'intellectual acuity': He's been wrong for past 40 years. Former Vice
President Joe Biden's "intellectual acuity" in potentially leading the nation seemed a cause of concern for a former Obama
administration official. Former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates did not exactly give the 2020 Democratic contender a
glowing reference as he simply said he "didn't know" if Biden would make an effective commander-in-chief, telling CBS News'
Margaret Brennan on "Face The Nation" that he stood by his view that Biden has "been wrong on nearly every major foreign
policy and national security issue" in the last 40 years.
'I'm Running for Three Basic Reasons'. Former Vice President Joe Biden, now running for the Democrat
presidential nomination, told a gathering in New Hampshire on Monday that the 2020 election is "bigger than politics" and
"bigger than any you've been engaged in" because of "who occupies the office." "The fact of the matter is that I'm
running for three basic reasons, and I'm going to be very clear about it as I move along and go into great detail as we get
down the road here, because this is a marathon," Biden said. He then listed his three reasons for running: [#1] I
want to restore the soul of this country. [...]
The Editor says...
The country has a soul that needs restoration? What does that mean? His other two points are just as vapid and
insipid. His whole platform is a pile of meaningless, hypothetical pie in the sky. Joe Biden
is depending on your unwillingness
or inability to think about what he says.
that seem accurate?': Donna Brazile pressed on Biden declaring Obama administration scandal-free. Former
Democratic National Committee chair Donna Brazile was pressed by the "Fox & Friends" hosts Tuesday on whether the Obama
administration was truly scandal-free. Speaking on the campaign trail in New Hampshire Monday [5/13/2019], former Vice
President Joe Biden said Barack Obama was an "incredible president" and during his two terms "there wasn't one single,
solitary hint of scandal." Biden warned that if Trump is given eight years in office, he will "forever and
fundamentally change the character of this nation."
The Editor says...
Yes Barack H. Obama was an incredible president, in the strictest sense of the word; to wit, he
was not credible. And neither is Joe Biden.
Biden in 2013: 'Overwhelmingly' in America's Interest for China to 'Prosper'. Leading Democrat presidential
primary candidate Joe Biden said in a 2013 speech that China's economic dominance is "overwhelmingly" in the United States'
interests. In a 2013 speech at the Export-Import Bank's 2013 Annual Conference, Biden touted the need for the
multilateral free trade deal known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) as a necessity to creating a "new world order."
in 2006: U.S. Needs Border Fence to Stop 'Tons' of Drugs From Mexico. Democratic presidential candidate Joe
Biden, who has been critical of President Donald Trump's immigration policies, previously expressed similar views, saying a
barrier at the southern border was needed to stop "tons" of drugs from coming into the United States. Speaking to a
South Carolina rotary club in November 2006, then-Sen. Joe Biden (D., Del.) touted his support for the Secure Fence Act, a
bill that authorized "700 miles of double-layered fence on the border through more than a billion dollars in appropriations,"
CNN reported Friday [5/10/2019]. Biden made the comments in the run-up to his failed presidential bid in 2008.
Biden Gets New York
Times Headline For Not Saying Anything Stupid. The New York Times gave Democratic presidential candidate Joe
Biden free press Sunday [5/12/2019] because he hasn't said anything stupid recently. Biden is praised in the story, which
was featured on the paper's app Sunday night, for making it a few weeks into his presidential bid without going off message.
Paul: Americans Will Be 'Shocked' to Know What Biden's Son Was Up To. Sunday [5/12/2019] on ABC's "Meet
the Press," Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) discussed a report from The New York Times on questions of former vice president Joe
Biden's potential conflict of interest.
Look Past Female Candidates to Arranged Marriage With Uncle Joe Biden. Where's Sen. Amy Klobuchar?
Last time I saw her, she was covered in snow like Nanook of the North announcing she was running for president. She's
one of a critical mass of would-be female presidents, too many for the Hillary brush-off of "I'm all for a woman president,
just not this woman." What will the excuse be this time? "There are so [...] many, I can't keep them straight."
Klobuchar is, of course, in plain sight but not so you'd know it. She surfaced on Wednesday evening at Fox News' second
town hall, where she performed so well she'd be above her 2-3 percent if only more people could hear her.
Biden parrots laughable falsehood that the Obama administration was scandal-free. Joe Biden, who launched his
2020 presidential campaign this week, boasted Friday that there was "not one single whisper of scandal" during the Obama
administration. "That's Barack," he beamed. There it is again, that damned, dishonest attempt by Obama acolytes
to rewrite the pre-Trump history of Washington corruption. To claim the previous administration — or any
previous administration for that matter — was scandal-free is to engage in a falsehood that would be laughable,
were it not so breathtakingly shameless.
Biden: U.S. Has 'Obligation' To Give Healthcare To 'Undocumented' Immigrants. Democrat presidential
candidate Joe Biden said during a campaign stop in California on Wednesday that the United States has an "obligation" to give
healthcare to illegal aliens. "I think that anyone who is in a situation where they're in need of healthcare, regardless
of whether they are documented or undocumented, we have an obligation to see that they are cared for," Biden said in Los
Angeles. "That's why I think we need more clinics around the country."
Biden Makes An Insane Comment About Illegal Immigrants. Joe Biden is currently dominating the Democratic
primary. He's entered the race and promptly doubled up Bernie Sanders, who was supposed to be performing much better
than he has. This led Sanders to team up with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to let us know that post offices should now give
up subprime loans, because what could possibly go wrong? While Biden has an easy path to victory against his fellow
Democrats if he just monopolizes the "moderate" lane, he apparently thinks he needs to out-crazy his opponents, which
admittedly is tough to do.
Schweizer: Unlike Don Jr., Hunter Biden 'Actually Had Foreign Deals'. Peter Schweizer, president of the
Government Accountability Institute and senior editor-at-large at Breitbart News, described the news media and political
establishment's disinterest in Hunter Biden's business deals with foreign states "stunning." Schweizer contrasted this
disinterest with the treatment of Donald Trump Jr.'s "deal that actually never happened" in the Trump Organization's
contemplated construction of a skyscraper in Moscow, Russia.
Biden's fatal weakness if he gets the Dems' nomination. In addition to his other weaknesses as a candidate — low intelligence,
gaffe-proneness, advanced age, his scandals in Ukraine and China enriching his family, and his brand-new advocacy of taxpayer-funded health care
for illegals — there is a sleeper issue that could fatally weaken him if gets the party's nod and runs against President Trump.
Flashback: D.C. Schools Worse Than Iowa Because Of High Black Population. Declared 2020 presidential
candidate Joe Biden's lengthy record bit him in the behind again on Thursday, as racially charged comments from Biden back in
2007 began to recirculate online.
staff faces renewed accusations of mistreating reporters. It has been less than two weeks since former Vice
President Joe Biden launched his 2020 bid, but numerous reporters have already voiced their concerns about the treatment they
have received from his staff. Freelance journalist Marcus DiPaola was covering the Biden campaign in Iowa last week
where he tweeted the accounts of different reporters, including himself, of their interactions with campaign staffers, which
he described to Fox News as "out of line, totally."
thing I'd do is repeal those Trump tax cuts." A repeal of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act would impose a large tax
increase on the American people. Thanks to the tax cuts, a typical family of four earning the median family income of
$73,000 saw a tax cut of over $2,000 — a 58% reduction in federal taxes. A single parent with one child with
annual income of $41,000 saw a tax cut of $1,304 — a 73% reduction in federal taxes. As noted by the New
York Times: "Most people got a tax cut."
[The] Biden Campaign [is] Physically Blocking [the] Press from Asking Questions. A freelance reporter covering
Joe Biden's presidential campaign launch says the campaign has gotten physical in its attempts to block the press from
questioning the former vice president. Marcus DiPaola, a videographer who was on the trail with Biden Wednesday night
in Iowa, used his Twitter account to voice complaints from multiple members of the press regarding poor treatment from
campaign staff, which was reportedly blocking reporters from asking questions and taking photographs of anyone who objected.
Biden Refers to 'Buddy' Barack Obama Seven Times in 1/2 Hour Speech. Former Vice President Joe Biden leaned
heavily on the legacy of his old running mate, President Barack Obama, during a campaign appearance on Saturday [5/4/2019].
Prior to the rally, the campaign aired a video of Obama praising Biden in 2017 and awarding his own vice president a Presidential
Medal of Freedom.
Good Old Joe Is a Peking Duck.
Former vice president Joe Biden's declaration for the Democratic presidential nomination seems to have back-footed his
twenty-some opponents. It's so bad that Bernie Sanders has endorsed President Trump's negotiations with Kim
Jong-Un. How long that will last is problematic. Joe — at seventy-six years of age — is not
too old to be president and is supposed to be more electable than most of the others. But let's not forget that Ol' Joe
is a gaffe-o-matic machine. He's tossed out so many verbal boners over the years (who can forget his telling a
wheelchair-bound man to stand up?) that he's bound to fumble and stumble repeatedly. His opponents — and the
media — aren't going to let him get away with that stuff anymore.
parody website with embarrassing photos of Joe Biden is outranking his official campaign page on Google. Joe
Biden's presidential campaign is already sunk — at least on Google. Users are reporting that the former vice
president's official 2020 campaign page is nowhere to be found on the first page of results for the search term "Joe Biden."
Even worse for the Democratic front-runner: A realistic-looking parody site featuring images of Biden touching women and
children appears to be doing quite well on Google and other major search engines, particularly for the search "Joe Biden website."
mixes up British PM Theresa May with Margaret Thatcher, who left office in 1990. Joe Biden flubbed the name of
British Prime Minister Theresa May at a fundraiser Saturday night, calling her by former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher's
name. Thatcher left office in 1990 and died in 2013. The mistake by Biden, 76, comes amid worries about his age
after he slurred his words during his campaign announcement speech. Aides have shielded him from reporters.
Biden won't get the Dem nomination. Yes, he's really, really old, thus removing the opportunity to attack
President Trump on the basis of his age. And yes, he says really stupid stuff [...] But the real reason why Biden won't
get the nomination is that he and his family are corrupt, enriching themselves courtesy of foreign governments.
Normally, that would not be a problem for a Democrat because the dominant mainstream media is not interested in scandals
affecting powerful Democrats. But with 22 Democrats running for president, some of them with MSM allies, and with grave
doubts about Biden's ability to defeat Trump (their overriding goal), these scandals will not be suppressed. Especially
because they involve collusion with a foreign power.
blasts Donald Trump for allowing 'Jim Crow to sneak back in' by attempting to introduce tougher voting laws.
Former Vice President Joe Biden charged Saturday that Jim Crow is 'sneaking back in' as he emphasized the need to ensure
voting rights are protected, which he said is lacking under the Trump administration. Biden drew several hundred people
to a community center in Columbia as he opened his presidential campaign in South Carolina, home of the first-in-the-South
primary and where black voters play a major role in the Democratic nominating process.
Biden: 'Jim Crow Is Sneaking Back' Under 'Clown' Donald Trump. Former Vice President Joe Biden took shots at
President Donald Trump on Saturday, calling him a "clown" who was allowing "Jim Crow" racism to return to the United
States. Biden kicked off his rally in Columbia, South Carolina with a string of warnings about racism and hatred rising
under Trump's presidency, in an effort to win support from African-Americans Democrats in the state.
Fair: Hunter Biden's $1.5 Billion Bank of China Deal 'Looming on the Horizon' as Campaign Scandal. A
$1.5 billion sweetheart deal Hunter Biden's private equity firm secured from the state-owned Bank of China is "looming on
the horizon" as a potential line of attack against his father's 2020 presidential campaign, according to Vanity Fair's
Tina Nguyen. This comes days after a New York Times article renewed interest in the revelations exposed in Peter
Schweizer's 2018 bestseller Secret Empires concerning the sweetheart deals Hunter Biden's private equity firm secured
while his father, Joe Biden, was vice president.
Finally Admits Biden's Strong-Arming Ukraine — and Whether His Son Benefitted — Is a Story. The
New York Times has finally decided that former former Vice President Joe Biden's successful push to fire a prosecutor in
Ukraine, who just happened to be investigating a company in which Biden's son was a key player, might be newsworthy. On
Thursday [5/1/2019], [the] newspaper finally caught up to The Hill's John Solomon, who reported on April 1 that the
Ukrainians had reopened probe into the company, Burisma Holdings. So the question is whether Biden acted to benefit his son.
Biden Physically Blocking Reporters at Campaign Rallies, Then Says China is Not in Competition with U.S.A. Not
only has Joe Biden's campaign already started blocking reporters from talking to him at campaign events, but now ol' slow Joe
is cluelessly saying that China is not in competition with the U.S. on the international scene. This old codger has
definitely gone senile. According to a report from the Washington Free Beacon, a reporter who has been covering
the Biden campaign was physically blocked from attending a Biden event in Iowa this week.
Biden's son invested in Chinese app that spies on Muslims, as US condemns China over 'concentration camps'. An
investment fund backed by Hunter Biden, son of 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden, invested in a surveillance system used
to spy on Muslims in China, a new report claims. The former vice president has been facing scrutiny over his son's
business dealings in Ukraine and other countries, with reports focusing on Hunter Biden's role in the Ukrainian energy
company Burisma Holdings.
Joe Biden have any idea about what it is to learn to code? [Scroll down] The Examiner and the Detroit
Metro Times earlier focused on the improbable — and patronizing — spectacle of Old Joe going into 'the
Hood' and somehow getting hold of black female gear-turners laid off from the auto industry to enroll in the program, a
variant on the 'learn to code' trope for displaced workers. And if you look at the Wayne County School of Continuing
Education's website, it's likely that that the program he was talking about was this. "It's not rocket science," he
cheesily assured. Since I am enrolled in one of these programs in the San Diego Continuing Education program, all I can
say is, It's [very] close.
Effort to Take Back the Constitution and Self-Government. The federal leviathan is awash in trillions of
dollars in cash. Countless lawyers, lobbyists, and public officials, by their control of or access to our government,
have grown rich. Hillary and Bill Clinton notoriously are Exhibit A, but we are in the process of learning that the
current front-runner in the Democratic sweepstakes for the 2020 nomination, Joe Biden, also managed successfully to siphon off
a few million for himself and his family.
Impeachment as Political
Panic Button. Joe Biden ran for president twice before, garnering zero primary victories and never reaching one
percent in any contest. Caught presenting British Labour leader Neil Kinnock's life story as his own, Biden dropped out
of the race for the 1988 nomination in 1987. In 2016, he pursued a vanity presidential campaign, running for secretary of
state or vice president but not for the office he purported to seek. As such, he came in fifth in the Iowa caucuses,
losing to the likes of John Edwards and Bill Richardson, before dropping out. He couldn't beat Bill Richardson but at
78 he runs ahead of the pack to succeed Donald Trump?
Biden goes light on policy, heavy on
emotion. Joe Biden has a healthcare plan, but doesn't "have the time to completely lay out all the details." He also
has a proposal for college debt, but no specifics on that either because "I don't have time; I don't want to keep you standing any
longer." The former vice president's ideas on climate change and foreign policy? Also works in progress. Yet there's time
for relatively lengthy anecdotes about how his dad long ago was unable to secure a loan to help send him to a school he wanted to attend.
Times Barack Obama Abused His Power To Appease His Base. President Trump has spent much of the past two years
trying to undo Obama's abuses of power — which Obama did, not in the best interests of the whole country, but for
the benefit of his base. Has Biden forgotten Obama's presidency or is he just a bad liar? Many of these abuses
should have resulted in Obama's impeachment. Unfortunately, Republicans in Congress didn't have the guts to impeach
him, but they tried everything they could to reign in his pseudo-dictatorship. Two pieces of legislation were drafted
in order to stop his abuses and force him to follow the law. Obama threatened to veto both bills rather than risk any
limits on his ever-expanding legislative authority.
Hilton: China Is 'Funding Biden Family Businesses' with 'Billions of Dollars'. On Sunday, Fox News
Channel's Steve Hilton reported on Peter Schweizer's investigation of former vice president Joe Biden's family's business
dealings with China's government, concluding that Biden was "compromised by a foreign power and unfit to be president."
Hunter Biden — Biden's second son — secured $1 billion in financing from the Bank of China —
an arm of the Chinese government — for a private equity firm founded by himself and Christopher Heinz, the stepson of
former Secretary of State John Kerry. That private equity firm was named Bohai-Harvest RST (BHR). Joe Biden "is the
very definition of a corrupt insider," said Hilton, rejecting left-wing and partisan Democrat marketing of Joe Biden as "a man
of the working people."
apology to Anita Hill is all about forgetting history. [Scroll down] Biden's an expert panderer. He
is already expressing contrition for how he, as chairman, handled the Senate Judiciary Committee's hearing on Hill's
accusations. "I believed her from the very beginning," Biden told ABC Tuesday, "but I was chairman. She did not
get a fair hearing. She did not get treated well. That's my responsibility." Sorry, Joe. That's
rewriting history. The hearing was fair. Hill's testimony was full of holes and devoid of evidence to back up her
claim that Thomas harassed her by talking about porn and other vulgar subjects at work. Thomas categorically denied
it. When testifying, she flip-flopped on a key question between her morning and afternoon testimony. She had to
backtrack on repeated statements that Thomas asked her to his apartment to watch porn, finally admitting it was an
"inference" she drew.
must answer for the lies sold to the American people by Team Obama. "Sleepy" Joe Biden is counting on his eight
years as President Obama's vice president to provide some sort of nostalgic boost for his third run for the White House in
the past 32 years. But "the problem with nostalgia" — to quote former Sen. John Edwards as he described
the presidential candidacy of Hillary Clinton in 2007 — "is what we tend to do is only remember what you like and
you forget the parts you didn't like." The disgraced former Democratic senator from North Carolina was, of course,
referring to the scandal-plagued administration of President Bill Clinton, which paved the way for the launch of seven
independent counsel investigations by then-Attorney General Janet Reno.
Joe okay? Biden Mumbles Through His First Speech as 2020 Presidential Candidate. Former Vice President
Joe Biden gave his first speech as a Democrat presidential candidate in Pennsylvania on Monday, but it didn't go that well as
the 77-year-old man stumbled through the speech. [Video clip]
Dems Don't Even Believe Themselves. The random element in the Democratic candidate sweepstakes is the recent
entry of former V.P. Joe Biden into the mix. While the Democrats who preceded him into the race are demonstrably more
radically leftist in their views — as risibly transparent as those views may be — Biden appears to be
attempting to stake out a more "reasonable" position along the political continuum. The question about Biden, of
course, is this: Does he actually have any heartfelt core beliefs? Other than being a backslapping good old guy
politician who gets a bit too friendly with the girls on occasion, are there any defining philosophies that anchor his vision
for the country? [...] Biden's early leading position in the polls among Democrats can be chalked up to simple name
recognition more than anything else. That will fade quickly enough.
Biden Can Save the Democrats from Total Embarrassment. Joe Biden's announcement of his candidacy for president
must be seen as the last stand of forces trying to prevent the Democratic party from descending in a power dive into a mighty
bonfire of the far Left. That party's only plan of action since Election Day 2016 has been to attempt to destroy Trump,
and that tactic survived even the complete dismissal of the Trump-Russia collusion canard and the declination of leaders of the
Justice Department to accuse the president of obstruction of justice (for the reason that no ingredients for a prosecution existed).
Joe Biden Ad Features Past Barack Obama Praise. Former Vice President Joe Biden released a campaign video on
Tuesday featuring old praise from former President Barack Obama. Obama has not endorsed Biden for president, but the
former Vice President has years of positive Obama footage to draw on for campaign ads.
first campaign rally raises doubts more than enthusiasm. For the frontrunner in the polls, Joe Biden wasn't
able to attract a very impressive crowd for his campaign's kickoff rally. Speaking to crowd of "hundreds" (not the many
thousands who turned out for President Trump in much smaller Green Bay Saturday, or the 20 thousand who allegedly attended
Kamala Harris's kickoff rally), Biden looked really good for a 77-year-old. But of course, makeup and plastic surgery
can accomplish wonders. But when it came to speaking, there were some worrisome lapses.
Deep-Six Touchy Joe's Anti-Whitism. There was a clunkiness about Touchy Joe's invocation of Charlottesville on
his presidential announcement day. [...] I have a question. Why haven't we trained up a slugger to hit this stuff right

take out after the real threat to peace and domestic tranquillity, the thugs of AntiFa? "Let's see, Joe. Back in
the day, the street thugs of the Democratic Party wore white flowing robes. Today they come all arrayed in artistic

the street thugs of the Democratic Party wore white hoods. Now they wear black masks and helmets. Where were you,
Joe, expressing your outrage at this illegal and hateful behavior? Back in the day, Joe, the street thugs of the
Democratic Party terrified people with burning crosses. Now they do it with bike locks. Hey Joe! When are
you gonna call for bike-lock control!"
Biden the Liar.
Harold Schaitberger, president of the AFL-CIO-affiliated International Association of Firefighters, declared at a campaign
rally for Joe Biden today that "Joe Biden is genuine. There's nothing phony or artificial about Joe Biden." This is a
spectacularly audacious claim about one of Washington's most notorious BS artists. A few days ago, Biden declared on
The View, "We were asked, what are you proudest of from your administration? You know what I said — he said
the same thing as I did. No[t] one single whisper of scandal. That's because of Barack Obama." Perhaps Biden
believes there was no whisper of scandal because there was so much shouting about veterans dying while waiting for care at
the Department of Veterans Affairs; the "Fast and Furious" gunwalking operation at the ATF; the dysfunctional launch of
Healthcare.gov; the Syrian "red line"; Benghazi; the hacking of Office of Personnel Management records; the IRS targeting of
conservative and Tea Party groups; other government agencies harassing and targeting the president's critics; drunkenness and
reckless behavior at the U.S. Secret Service....
Obama-Era Foreign Policy Failures Joe Biden Will Have to Answer For. The eight years of the Obama-Biden
administration were plagued by endless foreign policy failures that certainly raises questions as to what good Biden's
foreign policy credentials were as Obama's vice president — especially since it took Donald Trump being elected
president to clean up their messes. Five of these Obama-Biden foreign policy failures are mentioned below, but there
are plenty more. To Biden's credit, he has been publicly critical of Obama's mishandling of Syria — a major
foreign policy blunder of their administration. But there are plenty of other failures Biden hasn't separated himself

Biden says he wants to 'make America moral again'. Days after jumping into the 2020 race, former Vice President
Joe Biden is giving his own MAGA slogan a spin. Biden was asked what his version of President Trump's "make America
great again" slogan would be in a Good Morning America interview that aired Tuesday [4/30/2019]. "Make America moral
again," Biden told Robin Roberts. He continued, "Make America return to the essence of who we are, the dignity of the
country, the dignity of the people, treating our people with dignity." Biden sat down with Good Morning America shortly
before his first campaign rally on Monday. He said he's running for president to restore the "soul" and "backbone" of
America and to unite the country.

Biden On Anita Hill In 1998: 'She Was Lying'. Former vice president Joe Biden repeatedly said on The View on
Friday [4/26/2019] that he believed Anita Hill from the moment he heard her tale of sexual harassment by Clarence
Thomas. But he previously told Sen. Arlen Specter that it was clear her testimony before the Senate Judiciary
Committee included lies. "Not only didn't I vote for Clarence Thomas, I believed her from the beginning. I was
against Clarence Thomas, I did everything in my power to defeat Clarence Thomas and he won by the smallest margin anyone ever
won going on the Supreme Court," Biden told "The View's" Joy Behar. But in 1998, Biden admitted to Specter that "It was
clear to me from the way she was answering the questions, [Hill] was lying" about a key part of her testimony.

Stand by for Valerie Jarrett's third and FOURTH terms in the White House!
Joe Biden, 76, says he
has no plans to limit himself to one-term in the White House. Former Vice President Joe Biden, who is looking
to become the oldest candidate elected president, said Friday that he wasn't interested in pledging to serve only one term in
office. Biden, who would be 78 on Inauguration Day 2021, said in an interview on ABC's "The View" that it is fair
for voters to ask questions about his age as they weigh his candidacy. Asked if he would only serve a single term if
elected, Biden said, "No."
Are the McCains Able Forgive Biden But Not Trump? A month ago, John McCain's daughter Meghan defended Joe Biden
by saying, "With all due respect, I know Joe Biden very well. He's a very classy man. And I'm so sorry, but I
cannot sit here and let his record or his character in any way being taken down." Joe Biden is a lot of things, but a
classy man he is not. I, for one, will never forget that despicable moment when Joe Biden was campaigning in 2012 and
said to a group of mostly African-Americans that Mitt Romney and the Republican Party would "put you all back in chains."
So, no, Meghan, that is not something a man of class and character would say. But, what is perhaps more shocking is that
according to sources close to the McCain family, they will back Biden's presidential bid.
Biden is running on the media's Charlottesville lie about Trump. If Joe Biden was going to pick anything in the
world as his reason to run for the Democratic presidential nomination, you would think he'd get creative. But no, he
chose a well-known lie the media have been spreading since 2017. In his campaign launch video posted Thursday
[4/256/2019] on YouTube, the former vice president said it was President Trump's comments on the Charlottesville, Va.,
protests that served as his personal bat signal.
Joe and the Social Justice Worriers. There's one faction in the Democrat Party that's very small and very loud
and seemingly wants to return us to those halcyon days of the pre-internal combustion engine age with their silly Green New
Deal. [...] The other faction of the Democrat Party is substantially larger and a whole lot quieter. Except they want
to take us back to those wonderful days when America was in decline, unemployment ran rampant, poverty was up, labor
participation the lowest in history, etc. [...] In the end the Democrats will do what they always do. They'll rig the
primaries so the preferred candidate of the DNC leadership will get the nomination.

Entire Senate Once Voted in Favor of Restoring General Lee's Citizenship. Former Vice President Joe Biden was a
part of the 94th Congress that voted to restore Confederate General Robert E. Lee's citizenship over 100 years after his
death, and yet Biden attacked President Donald Trump's support of the general in his campaign announcement video earlier this
week. On Thursday [4/25/2019], Biden entered the presidential race, and he used Trump's words about a statue of Lee and
the people who attended the Unite the Right rally in August 2017 as the focal point for his announcement video.

is Wrong: America is a Reality, Not an Idea. "America is an idea," Joe Biden gravely intoned, as he threw
the 21st hat onto the overcrowded hat rack of the Democrat primaries already groaning under the weight of all the trilbys,
clown caps and hijabs. Biden is a compulsive plagiarist and the idea that America is an idea, like his hair, isn't his
own. It's also wrong. America as an idea has lately been bandied about by John Kasich, Senator Chris Coons,
Senator Lindsey Graham, and even Bono. Biden not only showed up late to the primaries, but late to the idea of an
idea. America isn't an idea. It's a place.

The Democrats' Flavor of the Week. This week's person-whose-definitely-going-to beat-the President is Obama's
former vice president, Joe Biden. He postponed the big announcement several times, and finally, the big day arrived
this week. His party's theme for some time now has been straight white men bad, and it's difficult to see how he'll
garner the nomination. But shrewd Joe has a plan: He hired Symone Sanders as his campaign manager just weeks
after she'd contributed to another wannabe contender, Pete Buttigieg, the gay mayor of a failing Indiana city.
Previously, she was the spokesperson for Bernie Sanders 2016 campaign. After leaving that position, she announced on
CNN "We Don't Need White People Leading The Democratic Party Right Now."
Major Scandals in Obama's 'Scandal-Free' Presidency. President Obama and his mouthpieces have embarked on a

says his proudest moment of Obama's presidency was 'not one whisper of scandal'. Former vice president and
newly-minted 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden appeared on "The View" on Friday morning [4/26/2019] and told
hosts that his proudest moment of serving with President Barack Obama was that there was "not one whisper" of scandal during
the time they served together in the White House. Biden said that, coincidentally, he and Obama both told press on the
same day while in different parts of the country that the thing they were most proud of while in the White House was that
there was "not one whisper of a scandal." "Not one," Biden said. "And that's because of Barack."

Joe Biden's First Mistake.
Vice President Biden is making a mistake, in our view, in trying to run for president on the idea that America is full of
deplorables. He's launched his campaign with a video featuring neo-Nazis marching at Charlottesville. He's
suggesting that President Trump — and his millions of followers — are racists and anti-Semites.
That libel backfired on Secretary Clinton. What can Mr. Biden be thinking? It may be that the ex-veep wants
to deflect attention from the Democrats' own problems. Mr. Biden's party hasn't been able to condemn the anti-Semitism
surging in the Democrats' own caucus. Even Mr. Biden himself, supposedly a centrist, shrank from taking on
Congresswoman Ilhan Omar and her ilk. Mrs. Pelosi at least tried to get a statement, though she backed down.
Opens Campaign with Attack on Trump Charlottesville Statements. So, the same guy who said during the 2012
campaign that Mitt Romney would put black people back in chains has decided on a race-baiting campaign to get himself
elected. Biden said in a video released Thursday morning that President Trump had assigned moral equivalence to the
white supremacists at Charlottesville in 2017 and the protestors. "In that moment, I knew the threat to this nation was
unlike any I had ever seen in my lifetime," Biden said. "I wrote at the time that we're in a battle for the soul of
this nation. Well, that's even more true to today."
who operated on Biden: He's better now than before brain surgery. Joe Biden almost died after suffering
an aneurysm while serving in the Senate, but the surgeon who operated on his brain says that the incident shouldn't hold him
back in his pursuit of the presidency. Dr. Neal Kassell, the renowned neurosurgeon who operated on Biden, said
he's confident that Biden is "totally in the clear," and joked that he believed the surgery had even "made him better than
how he was." "Joe Biden of all of the politicians in Washington is the only one that I'm certain has a brain, because I
have seen it," Kassell said. "That's more than I can say about all the other candidates or the incumbents."
Pushed Secretary of State Hillary Clinton To Form Closer Ties With Russia. In the aftermath of the Mueller
report and former Vice President Joe Biden's announcement Thursday he intends to run for president in 2020, several news
outlets began reporting on Biden's desire during his tenure in the Obama administration to develop closer ties to
Russia. The Washington Free Beacon published a piece Thursday morning reminding readers of Biden's defense of
Russia following then-candidate Mitt Romney's concern over Russia's apparent moves toward geopolitical domination in 2012.
Biden Launches Campaign Based on Charlottesville 'Very Fine People' Hoax. Former Vice Preisdent Joe Biden
launched his third presidential campaign on Thursday by referring to a debunked claim that President Donald Trump referred to
neo-Nazis in Charlottesville, Virginia, in 2017 as "very fine people." In a three-and-a-half minute YouTube video, Biden
cited the August 2017 riots as his primary motivation for running against Trump, presenting a version of events that even a
CNN contributor has declared to be fraudulent.

erupts with mockery over former vice president Biden's new branding. When Joe Biden launched his presidential

murdered when a car was driven into a crowd of activists in 2017. The last-minute change of plan could be an indication
of disorganization in the Biden campaign organization, despite the many months it has had to prepare as the former 36-year
senator from Delaware procrastinated over his announcement.
Must be really embarrassing.
of Delaware Won't Commit to Opening Biden Archive Before Election. The University of Delaware library is in
possession of nearly 2,000 boxes of archival records covering Joe Biden's 36 years as a senator but has not committed to
releasing them before the presidential election, which the former vice president is expected to enter on Thursday
[4/25/2019]. The records were donated by Biden to his alma mater during his first term as vice president in 2011.
Biden stipulated when he donated the papers that their release could come "no sooner than two years after [Biden] retires from any
public office," according to the library. Biden left office more than two years ago on January 20, 2017, but the
library now says an updated agreement with Biden was made to keep the archive closed until at least the end of the year.
Class Joe" Biden Should Really Be Called "Big Banks Joe". Biden's attempt to brand himself as "one of us" or a
man of the people is no accident. All of the allegations that have emerged this week of Biden's inappropriately
touching, kissing and hair sniffing of women and young girls has turned a lot of voters off. Biden has such a
reputation for his "over-familiar style" that some people were calling him Creepy Veep as far back as 2015. But the
most important reason that Biden wants to keep calling himself Middle Class Joe is that it creates an image that hides the
truth — Biden often utilized his power as a senator from Delaware from 1973 to 2009 to help banks and other
financial institutions make more money at the expense of tens of millions of ordinary Americans, many of whom were precisely
the middle-class residents he keeps saying he has helped throughout his career.
Joe Biden was Trump
before Trump. Joe Biden, on the evening of Oct. 11, 2012, delivered the most extraordinary, most ambitious, and
most undignified performance in the history of televised vice presidential debates. Biden snickered and guffawed his
way through the debate, interrupting his opponent repeatedly for the sake of interrupting, and firing irrelevant juvenile
comebacks at his opponent's sober points. Surely, this boorishness would hurt Biden. Surely, laughing at dead
servicemen in a war his administration started, and at the insolvency of entitlements, would look bad to the press and the
public. Or so I thought. I was wrong.
media need to investigate Joe Biden and his Ukraine dealings. For the past 12 days, the political media has
been focused on "handsy" and "creepy" former Vice President Joe Biden and his penchant for making unwanted contact with women
seemingly wherever he is. While these allegations deserve their fair share of attention, the mainstream media may be
missing — or more likely ignoring — the real Biden story that's staring them in the face.
Worse Than 'Creepy Uncle Joe'. It turns out that handsy Ol' Uncle Joe really is a bit "creepy" after all.
We can all say that, now that enough Democrats have told us this is the case. At least this is the current take of
certain presidential-minded Democrats who have decided that they no longer want or need Joe Biden. If these Democrats
were in their right minds, they would realize that loveable Ol' Joe — with his hair sniffing and back rubbing and
face pecking — is among the least of their problems. Nevertheless, right now many in the Democratic party
simply want to be done with Biden because of "inappropriate touching." This is the man who served in their party as vice
president for eight years and as a U.S. senator for 36 years. By inappropriate touching, they mean things like
hand-holding, forehead-to-forehead conversations, holding women "for a beat too long" at receptions, and the like. No
one is alleging anything criminal, nor is anyone using the phrase "sexual harassment." What's more, very little we are
hearing from Biden's accusers and their accomplices is new information. It seems clear that these accusations against
Biden are little more than a political ploy by some Democrats who hope to rid themselves of what they see as an old straight
white man who doesn't seem quite hip or radical enough to be their presidential nominee.
Joe Biden's campaign nearly
imploded before it began. Wanting to be president is not something that White House wannabes ever really get
over. Remember Richard Nixon? John McCain? Hillary Clinton? Now comes Joe Biden —
again. Most likely. He's late starting his third bid, which should launch shortly after Easter, a good time,
symbolically speaking, to attempt political resurrection.
Biden Needs A Hug. For all his goofiness, gaffeiness, and gropiness, Crazy Uncle Joe had a way of hiding his
unabashed and unrestrained liberalism behind this easy-going, sure-let's-crack-open-a-couple-of-Budweisers façade.
For reasons that many of us find utterly inexplicable, he seems to connect with normal Americans in a way most of his smug and
smarmy comrades don't. It's not that he's not smug and smarmy — if you remember the Clarence Thomas lynching
you aren't fooled by his dopey regular guy act. It's that he is probably the only one of the Democrats who can fake it
well enough to threaten Donald Trump's midwestern electoral power base.
Top Obama Adviser: The Democrats Are Totally Unprepared For Trump's Social Media War. CNN actually had a
decent segment (sort of) about the 2020 Democratic field and their unpreparedness for the onslaught that is about to be
unleashed against them by Donald Trump and the Republicans. So far, there is not one candidate who poses a serious
threat. Yes, Joe Biden, but he's navigating through some Me Too drama, which he made worse by making jokes about it at
a union conference last week. The former vice president is being accused of inappropriate touching, one of which
included smelling an accuser's hair, which is super, super creepy. These things were well known. We've seen the
memes and the photos of creepy Joe Biden. This was an open secret, but now — it's problematic.
Look To Joe Biden. An investigation into Biden's Russian ties is long overdue and urgent, as he is likely to
declare his campaign for the Democratic Party presidential nomination sometime soon. While widely regarded as the
moderate face of the Democratic Party, that perception might change quickly if more people were aware of his past work to
further the interests of the former Soviet Union and Russia. Biden visited the Soviet Union several times during his
early Senate career and was well known to Soviet leaders. The appalling Soviet treatment of dissidents was a big issue
at the time, and then-Sen. Biden would sometimes express concern at their plight.
'I'm not sorry for anything that I have ever done'. Former Vice President Joe Biden said Friday [4/5/2019] that
he's not sorry for his past actions that some women have said made them uncomfortable, but that he's sorry he didn't
understand more at the time. "The fact of the matter is I made it clear that if I made anyone feel [uncomfortable], I
feel badly about that. It was never my intention. Ever," Biden said. Asked again if he was sorry, Biden did
not apologize for his actions.
More Joe Biden Accusers Come Forward. Three more women on Wednesday [4/3/2019] came forward to accuse former
Vice President Joe Biden of inappropriate touching after the potential 2020 Democrat contender released a two-minute video
vowing to be "more mindful about respecting personal space." In interviews with the Washington Post, each of the
three women detailed how Biden had made them feel uncomfortable during instances which occurred over the past several years.
Biden Is Not Moderate. He's Far, Far Left. Joe Biden is the frontrunner for the Democrat Party nomination
for president of the United States in the 2020 presidential election. Out of a field of eighteen Democrat candidates so
far, Biden is polling at between 26 percent and 33 percent. That is a commanding lead. When voter preferences are
divided 18 ways, it is an even more significant lead. Laughably, Biden is talked about as the "moderate" Democrat
candidate for president. To be sure, Biden has a far better persona than any of the other candidates. Biden is
the far-left extremist you can take home to meet your tradition-minded grandparents. Biden will charm your neighborhood
backyard party while flipping steaks on the grill. Biden is the national Democrat you would most like to have a few
beers and pizza with, regardless of political beliefs. In other words, Biden is the best fake.
Joe Jokes about Touching Children During Union Speech. Former Vice-President Joe Biden isn't just creepy with
his inappropriate mannerisms, he's also tone-deaf about it. During a speech today at a construction workers conference,
Biden brings kids on stage and then makes jokes about touching them. this guy is creepy. Everything about this is
stunningly wrong. Making a joke about touching a child, while the children are hoisted on stage as props for political
benefit is jaw-droppingly tone deaf, and quite frankly, sick, to anyone with common sense watching this display.
The Most Disturbing
Thing about Joe Biden. For some reason, the evidence shows, in the early 2000s, Joe Biden began to remark in
public that his wife had died at the hands of someone who "allegedly ... drank his lunch instead of eating his lunch."
That Curtis Dunn "was an errant driver who stopped to drink." That drunk-driver story spread into news accounts.
The Dunn family, who had strong sympathy for Biden, was shocked by the sullying of their now-dead father. [...] This says so
much more about Biden the man than any too-close shoulder grasp ever could. It also says plenty about the contrition
junkies who influence America's news cycle, and, as Jim Geraghty pointed out recently, about the media who for many years had
dutifully served as Joe Biden's reputational bodyguard.
Joe Biden has no shame.
Joe Biden may have picked the wrong moment to make his third run at the presidency. In late 2015, when the then-vice
president demurred on a challenge for the Democratic nomination, the #MeToo movement was still two years away from its
breakout over numerous accusations against Harvey Weinstein. Now, 18 months after that exposé, Biden's public
handsiness has become a major scandal as he contemplates whether to enter the 2020 presidential sweepstakes. But this
scandal won't bring Biden down. Why? Because he is utterly shameless, and America will eat it up.
says he'll adjust his physical behavior as three more women come forward. Former vice president Joe Biden
promised on Wednesday to adjust his physical behavior toward women, an effort to quell controversy over whether his intimate
style is appropriate in the era of the #MeToo movement. Biden addressed critics in a video posted to Twitter as three
additional women told The Washington Post on Wednesday about encounters with him that made them feel uncomfortable.
Their stories bring the total number of people who have expressed concerns about alleged interactions with Biden to
seven. Other women defended Biden, who has been seen by many women as an advocate for them.
Opens the Door. It's suddenly commonplace for feminists to say of Joe Biden that "he doesn't get it." [...]
Biden has opened the door to scrutiny of his high school days. Now, Biden has no right to complain if some women he
doesn't remember alleges that he stole a kiss from her, or worse, 60 years ago. Clearly, Biden hasn't been paying
attention. It's questionable whether Biden's conduct of 60 years passes full muster under the feminist standards of
today. But even if it does, what's to prevent a Kamala Harris or Elizabeth Warren supporter from "remembering"
misconduct by Biden?
praises 'courage' of Biden accusers, questions whether former VP should enter 2020 race. Former Texas
Rep. Beto O'Rourke became the latest 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful to weigh in on the allegations of unwanted
touching and kissing leveled against former Vice President Joe Biden. O'Rourke, who currently sits third in the polls
alongside Sen. Kamala Harris of California and behind Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, praised the
"courage" of the women who have come forward to accuse the former vice president of inappropriate behavior.
jokes about hugging in 1st appearance since improper contact allegations, later voices remorse. In his first
public appearance since allegations of improper contact with women threatened his yet-to-be-announced White House bid, former
Vice President Joe Biden appeared to make light of the controversy surrounding his well-publicized past getting too close for
comfort with fellow politicians, their family members and others. Yet minutes later, talking with reporters, a more
somber Biden emphasized that "I'm sorry I didn't understand more." And referring to his likely presidential campaign
announcement, Biden said, "I am very close to making a decision to stand before you all relatively soon." Asked why the
hold-up, Biden quickly answered, "The hold-up is to put everything together."

Obama's Vice President from 2009-2017 — hasn't even declared himself a candidate for next year's presidential
campaign and he's already in the crosshairs of the radicals in his own party.
Joe Biden 'Seething' Behind the Scenes Despite Contrite Video. Fox Business Network reporter Charles Gasparino
said Wednesday that former Vice President and potential 2020 candidate Joe Biden is "seething" behind the scenes at
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), whose campaign he believes is behind media scrutiny of him getting too close for comfort
with myriad women.
Schweizer: Joe Biden 'Steered $1.8 Billion' to Ukraine While His Son Bagged 'Sweetheart Deal' from Their Government.
Peter Schweizer, president of the Government Accountability Institute and senior editor-at-large at Breitbart News, recalled how Hunter
Biden, Joe Biden's second son, received millions of dollars from Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings while his father directed
$1.8 billion in aid money to Ukraine as vice president during the Obama administration.
Democrats in 2020:
Unelectable Nonentities. The last and not the best hope of sane Democratic contenders is that very tired old
plough-horse Joe Biden. With all his malapropisms and foolish ideas, the amiable survivor whose first run for the White House
failed 31 years ago because he was caught plagiarizing from one of Britain's most unsuccessful opposition leaders, Neil Kinnock, is
at least not a terrifying radical. And now, he is being sandbagged because he allegedly touched two or more women many
years ago, perfectly legally, with no discreditable intent, out of affection with no claimed sexual aspect. [...] Biden is a
memorably unprepossessing candidate for the headship of the American government. Putting tired, banal, stale, but oddly
equable old Joe up against the rampaging lion who is the incumbent would be like sending Frederick the Mouse of the children's
bedtime stories to do battle with my late Siamese wondercat, Sidney.
Problem Is His Ego. Joe Biden wants us to believe that all his touching speaks to how deeply he cares about
other people. It's really a testament to how much regard he has for himself.
of Biden is instructive. After the first shoe dropped on groping, I said Joe Biden should drop out of the race
because someone powerful wanted him out of the race. A second woman came forward yesterday. The bombshell fell
today [4/2/2019] as The Hill reported, "Joe Biden's 2020 Ukrainian nightmare: A closed probe is revived." His
opponents have the goods on him. Of course they do. He spent 42 years in the Senate (the last eight as vice
president, who is the president of the Senate). I am convinced now that everyone in Washington has secret baggage that is
known by someone. This is why they are frustrated with President Donald John Trump because he is an outsider no one
seems to have the secret baggage that would destroy him.
Pelosi's Perv Problem. If you're a sleazy male Democrat, you can always count on Nancy Pelosi to run
interference for you and your pervy proclivities. While she has soaked up plaudits as a champion for women (most
recently as the VH1 Trailblazer Honors recipient last month for International Women's Day), what she really deserves is
Cheerleader of the Year Award from the Democratic Bad Boys Club. The latest beneficiary of her soft-glove treatment is
former Vice President and potential 2020 Democratic presidential aspirant Joe Biden — a.k.a. the veep creep.
She gently advised him to "pretend you have a cold" and joked during a Politico interview that he should emulate her
"straight-arm" policy of keeping distance from others. Giggle, giggle, blink, blink. Reporters laughed along.
(And these are the same people who mock straight-arrow Vice President Mike Pence of taking extra precaution around women!)
claims of inappropriate behavior put Joe Biden's 2020 presidential bid in doubt. Two more women have claimed
that Joe Biden inappropriately touched them, in a further blow to the former US Vice President said to be considering a bid
for the White House. Caitlyn Caruso, 22, told the New York Times on Tuesday [4/2/2019] that Mr Biden hugged
her "just a little bit too long" when she was 19 at a University of Nevada event on sexual harassment.
Joe Biden's touching is only becoming an issue now confirms liberal media bias. As the press gives more
attention to the mounting accusations against former Vice President Joe Biden for inappropriate touching, it is only doing
more to confirm all of the suspicions that conservatives have about liberal media bias. The New York Times quoted two
more women as saying they felt uncomfortable by the way Biden touched them, which follows two other accusations of a similar
nature. However, there is nothing particularly new about the idea that Biden is handsy. The fact was well known
for years and demonstrated in many photos and videos. A number of conservatives tried to argue that his creepy behavior
shouldn't simply be dismissed as just a cuddly Biden being Biden. At the time, though, the matter was largely ignored
by the media, treated as a joke, or waved off as "faux outrage."
roll-out of 'inappropriate touching' accusations against Creepy Uncle Joe continues. Somebody is kneecapping
Creepy Joe. Call me obsessive and paranoid, but I have a long shot theory. [...] The list of suspects is potentially
anyone interested in running for the 2020 nomination, of course. But it would have to be someone with sufficient
deviousness, resources, media contacts, and skill to pull off a campaign. Michelle Obama certainly could be the
puppeteer. But among declared candidates, Kamala Harris tops my list in terms of deviousness, and she clearly has
significant financial and organizational support. Bernie Sanders, who currently polls just behind Biden is another old
white guy who potentially could pick up support that is not committed to intersectionality (i.e., discrimination against
white males). Feel free to call me obsessive and paranoid, but I have to wonder if the fine hand of Hillary Clinton is
not behind this phenomenon. It would be perfectly in character for her. But is she really thinking that she has a
chance? Is she willing to make another run?
Biden's Inappropriate Behavior with Women is Not Disqualifying. Lt. Gov Justin Fairfax, over in Virginia,
has been accused of rape by two women. He hasn't been disqualified. Talk of an Al Franken comeback is ubiquitous.
Biden's allegations haven't yet reached that stage. So why not have Bad Touch Biden in the big White House?
Good thing his name isn't Kavanaugh.
Goldberg Defends Biden. Monday on ABC's "The View," co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg, Meghan McCain and Joy Behar
defended former Vice President Joe Biden in the wake of former Nevada lawmaker Lucy Flores' claim he inappropriately touched
and kissed her in 2014 at a campaign rally.
spokesperson criticizes 'cottage industry of lies'. A spokesperson for Joe Biden pushed back forcefully on
Monday at a "cottage industry of lies" he said has formed about the former vice president supposedly crossing a line between
affectionate or supportive behavior with women to something inappropriate. [...] Biden is widely expected to enter the
Democratic race for the White House, where allegations of inappropriate touching and kissing could torpedo his campaign.
Biden's 2020 Ukrainian nightmare: A closed probe is revived. Two years after leaving office, Joe Biden
couldn't resist the temptation last year to brag to an audience of foreign policy specialists about the time as vice
president that he strong-armed Ukraine into firing its top prosecutor. In his own words, with video cameras rolling,
Biden described how he threatened Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko in March 2016 that the Obama administration would pull
$1 billion in U.S. loan guarantees, sending the former Soviet republic toward insolvency, if it didn't immediately fire
Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.
Ingraham Shares Her Own "Creepy Joe" Me Too Moment. Former VP Joe Biden is known for touching and kissing women
inappropriately. There are many accounts that show he is infamous for this. By doing a simple google search, it
is apparent that this is something that he does all the time. However, in the era of the "me too" movement, is it safe
to assume that Joe Biden isn't fit to run the office of president in the United States? Most people say "no."
'The View' hosts
say they want Joe Biden to continue smelling women's hair and kissing them. The women of "The View" don't think
much of the accusations made against Joe Biden of inappropriate behavior with women, and several said they wanted him to
continue smelling women's hair and kissing them without asking. "Joe is a hands on kind of guy!" said Whoopi Goldberg,
who asked why the accuser couldn't have simply asked him to stop touching her. Biden was accused by a former Nevada
lawmaker of smelling her hair and kissing her in a way that made her very uncomfortable. She cited other examples of
inappropriate behavior from Biden in her statement.
Post springs to the defense of serial groper Joe Biden. Joe Biden is in a lot of trouble, as editor Lifson
points out today. Biden apparently kissed a woman without her permission, which is a serious offense in #MeToo
land. There are also several photos of Biden with his arms around women, kissing them, kneading their shoulders —
shouldn't he be arrested or something? But never fear, Uncle Joe. The Washington Post is riding to your rescue.
Biden His Time.
My sense is that Biden is the Ed Muskie of this election cycle — the early front runner because of name recognition and
general stature, but doomed to fade once the campaign starts in earnest. At this point in 1971, Muskie was leading in Nixon
in some head-to-head polls ahead of the 1972 election. But then Muskie exposed himself as the prototype of the snowflake
generation, and his campaign went kaput. He would likely have faded anyway, as the Democratic Party base in 1972 wanted someone
much more fully anti-war and anti-American than Muskie (or Hubert Humphrey), and coughed up the hairball of George McGovern.
woman says then-Vice President Joe Biden touched her inappropriately at a Greenwich fundraiser in 2009. A
Connecticut woman says Joe Biden touched her inappropriately and rubbed noses with her during a 2009 political fundraiser in
Greenwich when he was vice president, drawing further scrutiny to the Democrat and his history of unwanted contact with women
as he ponders a presidential run.
Who kneecapped Biden?
Five years after the fact, Nevada Democrat Lucy Flores came forward with a story that Joe Biden gave her an unwanted kiss.
[...] How odd that she chose to tell her story now. Democrats have known about Biden's improper behavior for decades
and were silent about it. But 32 years after his first run for president, Biden actually has a shot because he was
Obama's veep. Somebody wants Biden out of the race. Hence, Flores told her tale and Matt Drudge linked it.
I am guessing this is the work of the Obamas. They saw Plugs up close for eight years. They know him. They
know he is too impulsive to be president, which would stain Obama's legacy. That was why the Obamas supported their
arch-enemies, the Clintons, last time. Michelle has made it plain that she wants a Woman of Color as the nominee.
And John Boehner made it clear that Barack does what she wants him to do.
As a prominent Bernie Sanders supporter in 2016 who seems eager to back a non-Biden candidate in 2020, [Lucy] Flores might
have a political motive to exaggerate her recollection. Going on the evidence that now exists, her charge is hard to
evaluate. According to the standards of culpability that Biden has articulated in similarly conflicted situations,
however, it's an open-and-shut case. Perhaps no major American political figure has so consistently championed the
erosion of due process for those accused of sexual misconduct. Even if Flores's claims might be unprovable, distorted,
or simply wrong, changing the culture about sexual misconduct and mistreatment of women requires that we accept her version
of events. Biden will now learn firsthand how the mantra of "believe all survivors" has the effect of presuming the
guilt of the accused.
Biden's Stale Postmodernism. [Scroll down] A normal person would flatly deny the allegation if he didn't
believe it. If he did believe it, he would either deny the allegation anyway or apologize. If he wasn't sure
(i.e., he didn't recall doing what he's accused of but knew he was capable of it — which is probably the case with
Biden), a normal person would either deny the allegation or simply say he doesn't remember inappropriately touching
Flores. He would not add the obligatory salute to the "Me Too" movement. Unfortunately, the modern Democratic
party is post-normal.
Absurd Destruction of Joe Biden is a Huge Boost to Trump. Because the 2020 presidential election is a year and
a half away, it is very easy to get lulled into the false presumption that the outcome cannot possibly be currently determined,
especially after the shocking result we all witnessed in 2016. However, there is an extremely strong argument to be made
that the emerging destruction of Joe Biden, by both his own hands and those of his rivals, could very well end up allowing
President Trump to be re-elected. While I am no fan of Joe Biden the politician, there is absolutely no doubt in
my mind that, if the Democratic Party got behind him early in this process and allowed him to emerge from their primaries
unscathed, that, barring a "black swan" event, he would defeat Trump. There is no one else currently likely to
run for the Democratic nomination about whom a remotely similar statement could be rationally made.
Al Franken problem. Joe Biden has an Al Franken problem. Though he hasn't even officially announced he's
running for president, on Friday Biden was hit with the first of what could be more #MeToo accusations. Lucy Flores, a
former Nevada assemblywoman, wrote that in 2014, when she was seeking office and Biden was still vice president, he smelled
her hair and then planted an unwanted kiss on the back of her head. The problem for Biden is similar to the one faced
by Franken when he was forced to resign from the Senate: Descriptions of misconduct are more believable when consistent
with visual evidence.
of Joe Biden's most touchy-feely moments. He's the Democratic Party's hands-on favorite for 2020. The
revelation last week of Joe Biden's creepy encounter with a young female politician was is hardly the first time the
76-year-old has been accused of being too touchy-feely with women. Topping the Post's Gallery of Biden's Greatest
Hit-ons was the time he grabbed the shoulders of Stephanie Carter from behind and whispered in her ear while her hubby Ash
Carter gave his 2015 Secretary of Defense acceptance speech. He awkwardly groped the waist of The Hill's Amie Parnes at
a 2013 holiday party. During a 2012 campaign stop in Ohio he sat so close to a biker chick his forehead touched her temple.
easy to Google "Creepy Biden"'. The former Nevada lawmaker who accused Joe Biden of giving her an "awkward
kiss" in 2014 said Sunday she decided to go public because she wanted to force Democrats to confront his inappropriate
behavior as the former vice president decides to run for the White House. "It's so easy to Google 'Creepy Biden' and
you get all these compilations of pictures and video evidence of young women and women looking very, very uncomfortable,"
Lucy Flores, a former Nevada assemblywoman and 2014 candidate for lieutenant governor, told POLITICO.
Flores Speaks Out, Eviscerates Biden's Ridiculous Defense Against Her Accusation. Lucy Flores, the Democrat
lawmaker who just revealed that Joe Biden inappropriately touched her during her 2014 campaign for Lieutenant Governor of
Nevada appeared on CNN's "State of the Union" on Sunday [3/31/2019]. [Video clip]
Biden Is Done. Joe Biden is a creepy old goat. Everyone knows this. There is much photographic
evidence of him crossing the line with women. He's also a liar and a buffoon. But the Democratic party's
public-relations arm, aka the mainstream media, has never before had any incentive to hold Biden up to scrutiny. Why
bother? When he became veep, any attack on Biden risked looking like casting aspersions on the man who made him his
number two, and the media could not countenance any naysaying about the judgment of the Precious. For the next few
months, though, we're in an amusing interstitial period when the media actually has a reason to attack their fellow Democrats:
any hacks out there who think their party can do better than Biden (or Sanders, or Warren, or Harris, or etc.) can rip into
their disfavored candidates in order to give an assist to their preferred picks.
Media Failed to Protect Lucy Flores from Joe Biden. ormer Nevada Assemblywoman Lucy Flores was not just a
victim of Joe Biden, but of a complicit media who deliberately looked the other way for decades. Serial Young
Girl-Toucher (nickname stolen from Ace of Spades) Joe Biden denies the incident with Flores, but the whole world knows he has
been caught countless times on video and in photographs behaving inappropriately not only with women, but with young
girls — very young girls.
Biden's endless gaffe-riddled apology tour. Actual Candidate Joe Biden is going to be a lot less popular than
Potential Candidate Joe Biden. To begin with, there's his record, which couldn't be further out of step with the party
he aims to lead. He's been steadfastly pro-corporate in his instincts and preferences, as one might expect from a
senator representing the state of Delaware, home to the country's credit card industry. His racial views in the 1970s
placed him on the rightward fringe of his party. He was hard on Anita Hill during Clarence Thomas's confirmation
hearings. He campaigns for Republicans. And he has a long history of handsy behavior, and downright sleazy
off-color statements, toward women.
Uncle Joe' Gets Busted by #MeToo (Hint: She's a Bernie Supporter). After years of inappropriate public
contact with women and girls, Joe Biden has finally been called out by a fellow Democrat. [...] Of course, the obvious
political motive of Biden's accuser does not mean that his "Creepy Uncle Joe" act isn't genuinely offensive. But why is
it that this behavior, which conservatives have been pointing out for years, seemed to go unnoticed by Democrats and the
media (but I repeat myself) until a fellow Democrat called out Biden?
Highlights Joe Biden's Apology to Anita Hill Ahead of Expected 2020 Run. Former Vice President Joe Biden is
expected to announce a run for president some time in April and has been testing the waters and smoothing over rough spots
from his past. As part of that effort Tuesday night [3/26/2019], he made yet another public apology to Anita Hill, the
law clerk who falsely accused Justice Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment. The apology drew the attention of the CBS
Evening News, who highlighted it Wednesday. "Former Vice President Joe Biden is trying to clear up some past
issues ahead of his expected announcement that he's joining 14 other Democrats in a run for the White House. Last night
he brought us his role in a controversial Senate confirmation hearing from 28 years ago," announced anchor Jeff Glor.
Ignore Inappropriate Kissing Allegations Against Biden. CNN and MSNBC have not covered the allegations a former
Democratic lawmaker levied against former Vice President Joe Biden in the 12 hours after the allegations surfaced on Friday
MSNBC ignore explosive misconduct allegation against Biden. Two prominent cable news networks offered zero
coverage to the breaking misconduct allegation made against former Vice President and potential 2020 candidate Joe Biden on
Friday night. A former Democratic candidate from Nevada alleged in an op-ed published in New York Magazine's The Cut
that Biden inappropriately touched her at a 2014 campaign event.
Makes #MeToo Claim Against Joe Biden: He Smelled Me and Kissed My Head. Former Nevada Assemblywoman Lucy
Flores, now a Social Justice Activist, revealed that Vice President Joe Biden was "creepy" with her during a campaign
event. She said in an essay for The Cut that the incident occurred during her campaign for lieutenant governor
in Nevada in 2014, when Biden came to the state to help the campaign.
why Beto, Biden and Bernie are peaking. Much has been written about the supposed frontrunners for the
Democratic nomination for president: Joe Biden, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and former Rep. Beto O'Rourke
(D-Texas). For the past several months, the first two have been comfortably leading the pack in national, Iowa and New
Hampshire polls, while O'Rourke has been at or near the front of the remaining group. There has been an unmistakable
(and highly mistaken) air of inevitability surrounding these three. But the calculus that has gone into their decisions —
or in Biden's case, the expected decision — to enter this increasingly crowded field is laden with landmines that likely
will doom each of their candidacies.
Biden Being Asked to Consider One-Term Pledge. Former Vice President Joe Biden's advisers are reportedly asking
him to consider pledging to just serve one term in office if he wins his party's nomination and faces off against President
Donald Trump in the general election. According to a Thursday New York Times report, Biden's advisers are
discussing "a possible pledge to serve only one term" and framing Biden's 2020 campaign "as a one-time rescue mission for a

plagiarism; racism; corruption; and a penchant for fondling young girls, even in public on camera. Like Bernie Sanders,
he is too old.
Dem Donors Tell Joe Biden They Won't Raise Money for him. A handful of leading Democrat donors recently told
former Vice President Joe Biden that they would not raise early-stage campaign funds for him if he were to run for president
in 2020, according to a report. According to CNBC, several donors declined Biden's request to bundle campaign contributions
due to their skepticism regarding whether the 76-year-old establishmentarian could survive a bruising Democrat primary.
Biden Advisers Consider Stacey Abrams as Running Mate. Advisers for former Vice President Joe Biden's 2020
presidential campaign-in-waiting are debating whether to name failed gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams as his running
mate, a Thursday report says. According to Axios, Biden aides believe adding Abrams to the ticket would send a strong
signal to voters that he's not "just another old white guy."
video problem. For the same reason that he is the Democrat most likely to run successfully against Donald Trump
in 2020, Joe Biden is the most problematic choice for the Democrats' presidential nomination. Slow Joe, you see, spent
decades as a prominent officeholder before the Democrats embraced crazy leftism as dogma. And in the age of online
video clips, social media, and email, his previous speeches contradicting the leftism currently demanded by the party's base
are available for all to see. A case in point is the current Democrat desperation measure: packing the Supreme Court.
on the Potomac: Biden's long history of public indecision over presidential run. Despite leading a dozen
announced Democratic 2020 presidential candidates in the polls, former Vice President Joe Biden is again dragging out a
decision on a presidential run, repeatedly teasing that he is close to making up his mind. [...] At the start of January,
members of his inner circle intimated that he would "most likely make a decision within the next two weeks." A month later he
said he was "70 percent there." At the end February, he said he was "very close" to making a decision. Last week he
told supporters he would decide "in a few weeks." Then it was reported that Biden was telling family and friends that there
was a 95 percent chance of his running.
Joe' rakes in millions. "Middle-Class Joe" Biden has a $2.7 million vacation home. He charges more than
$100,000 per speaking gig and has inked a book deal likely worth seven figures. Since leaving office in 2017, the 76-year-old
former vice president has watched his bank account swell as he continues to cultivate the image of a regular, Amtrak-riding
guy. He's repeatedly referred to himself as "Middle-Class Joe" on the campaign trail and in speaking engagements as he
publicly mulls whether to run for president.
Hero Joe Biden Is Actually Super-Duper Rich, A Bona Fide 1 Percenter. Joe Biden likes to call himself "Middle
Class Joe," but nowadays, he's anything but that. Biden is a bona fide member of the "1 Percent," which according
to the Economic Policy Institute means you make more than $421,926 a year.
Diversity a Root Cause of Dual Loyalty? "We can't be divided by race, religion, by tribe. We're defined
by those enduring principles in the Constitution, even though we don't necessarily all know them." So Joe Biden told the
firefighters union this week. But does Joe really believe that? Or does that not sound more like a plea, a
wistful hope, rather than a deep conviction? For Biden surely had in mind the debate that exploded last week in the
House Democratic caucus on how to punish Somali-American and Muslim Congresswoman Ilhan Omar for raising the specter of dual
loyalty. Rebutting accusations of anti-Semitism lodged against her, Omar had fired back: "I want to talk about
the political influence in this country that says it is OK to push for allegiance to a foreign country." Omar was
talking about Israel.
Uncle Joe Biden will be America's next president. He's a career politician (he only held a "real" job for a few
years in his 20s, and he's been living off the public dole for nearly half a century). He's run for president twice, in 1988
and again 20 years later, so he knows the game inside and out. And after a decade of political sniping, 2020 is tailor-made
for a middle-of-the-road candidate, which fits Mr. Biden to a T. Here's the simple scenario: The entire
Democratic field runs hard left, as they are now, embracing full-blown socialism. Mr. Biden will then roll up in a yellow
Corvette — maybe wearing aviator sunglasses — and say "whoa, whoa, whoa, people, let's not get crazy here."
The mainstream media will embrace him, voters is the middle will go, "yeah, I can see him as president," and that's all she wrote.
Has the Democratic
Party Passed Joe Biden By? A new poll is out in Iowa that shows former Vice President Joe Biden leading
socialist Senator Bernie Sanders. [...] Biden is dithering about making a run, and who can blame him? With 30 percent
of Iowans believing his time has passed and he shouldn't run, you have to wonder if that percentage is even higher in more
liberal states. There was a time when Biden was seen as a liberal lion — about as far left a Democrat as
there was in the 1980s. But times change and so has the Democratic Party. In fact, the party is unrecognizable
compared to what it looked like in 2008 when Biden was chosen as Barack Obama's running mate. Many on the far-left see
Biden as "too conservative," if you can believe that. The media sees him as a "centrist."
thing there are no statues of Joe Biden. The Washington Post reports on an interview a Delaware newspaper
conducted with Joe Biden in 1975. On the subject of race, Biden stated: ["]I do not buy the concept, popular in
the '60s, which said, 'We have suppressed the black man for 300 years and the white man is now far ahead in the race for
everything our society offers. In order to even the score, we must now give the black man a head start, or even hold
the white man back, to even the race.' I don't buy that.["] Putting an even finer point on it, Biden added:
["]I don't feel responsible for the sins of my father and grandfather. I feel responsible for what the situation
is today, for the sins of my own generation.[..."]
Biden in the final stages of preparing for a 2020 presidential bid. Former Vice President Joe Biden is in the
final stages of preparing for a 2020 presidential campaign that is expected to launch next month, according to multiple
people familiar with his planning. A formal kickoff is expected by mid-April and would all but cement the size and
scope of the Democratic presidential field that currently stands at 12 formally declared candidates, two still in the formal
exploratory stage and others still mulling a bid but waiting to see what the former veep might do. Biden sits atop
various surveys of Democrats nationally and in the key early primary states and is seen by supporters as one of the
contenders best-equipped to unite factions that are squabbling over the ideological future of the party and where and who
exactly it should target in a bid to retake the White House. While the 76-year old can likely expect to find support in
suburban swing districts and Midwestern states key to previous Democratic presidential victories, he faces doubts about
whether he can win over minority and younger voters that are fueling much of the party's current energy and success.
Democratic voters were asked if they want Biden to run for president. Not one raised their hands. A
handful of voters who say they backed Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election say they are unexcited by the
prospect of former Vice President Joe Biden entering the 2020 field. "How many of you would like to see Joe Biden get
in? Show of hands," CNN's Alisyn Camerota asked the panel of six Democrats, selected from Ohio, New York, New Jersey
and Pennsylvania, on "New Day" Tuesday morning [3/5/2019]. No one raised their hands.
The Editor says...
It doesn't matter. From where I'm sitting, it appears that the Democratic Party is run from the top down. The platform is written
at the uppermost levels and handed down to the grassroots as an edict. The elite power players in the Party select their candidate, and
then make the necessary arrangements, before their national convention if possible, to install the pre-ordained candidate. That's now
Hillary got the nomination last time instead of Bernie Sanders. The Republican Party works in the opposite way: The party
platform is developed at the lowest levels and is compiled and refined as it works its way up to the national convention.
Valerie Jarrett's third term?
Biden's Potential Bid and an Obama Restoration. In today's [3/7/2019] New York Times, Democratic
Representative Cedric Richmond of Louisiana, the former head of the Congressional Black Caucus, said he believes that former
vice president Joe Biden is the party's "best candidate to beat Trump." Much of the discussion around Biden has focused
on how much of love from Democrats that he enjoyed as Obama's vice president will continue when he's flying solo.
Biden's age is obvious, his gaffes are legendary, and today's Democrats aren't big fans of his old stances on crime, the
death penalty, abortion, and handling of the Anita Hill case.
Betrayal of SEALs should Doom His Presidential Run. [W]hile critics of President Trump's foreign policy accuse
him of a degree of recklessness and immaturity that place the nation's security at risk, Biden's service in an administration
that gave us the criminal negligence and incompetence of Benghazi, provides us with an example of why he should not be
trusted with the nation's security or the lives of its heroes.
someone mention Benghazi?
return of Big Ego Politics: Joe Biden gets the backstage rock star treatment on the road. For all his
claims to being "everyman," the great grassroots candidate, fumblin' Uncle Joe all full of malapropisms, or Amtrak Joe who
rides the train, news is getting out about potential Democratic presidential candidate, Joe Biden, and he doesn't quite look
like the everyman he projects himself to be.
Patiently Waits As Biden Considers A Potential WH Bid. Former Vice President Joe Biden has yet to enter the
2020 race for president. Some recent media reports have suggested that his son's checkered private life could be part
of the reason for the Democrat's hesitation. [...] The hesitation on Biden's part is holding up process for other potential
Democratic candidates. Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, for one, is considering a run at the White House
but not if he has to challenge Biden in a stacked primary.
Biden enters 2020 race, Trump-like support is expected by Democrats. Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden has
yet to declare his presidential intentions, but if he does run, he's looking at a Trump-like coalition of support within the
Democratic Party, with backing from men, the less-educated and older voters. Mr. Biden would enter the race as the
most well-known and most well-liked option, with polls consistently putting the 76-year-old first in the Democratic
lead shaky ahead of 2020 decision. Joe Biden's big lead in early Democratic 2020 polling might be a bunch of
malarkey. While most polls show the former vice president hovering around 30 percent of the Democratic primary vote,
well ahead of second-place Sen. Bernie Sanders, two recent surveys paint a starkly different picture —
raising the question of whether Biden is a real front-runner or just has big name-recognition. Those polls show far
more Democratic voters undecided about which candidate to support, and they pegged Biden's backing at a much less
intimidating 9 to 12 percent.
tells Europeans in Munich that America is 'an embarrassment'. Speaking on German soil 75 years after the U.S.
and its allies prepared for D-Day, Joe Biden described America as "an embarrassment" and its trade policies "self-defeating."
[...] Biden, 76, speaking at the annual gathering of foreign policy leaders, didn't mention Trump by name. But, despite
a longstanding tradition of politics "stopping at the water's edge" and refraining from criticizing a commander-in-chief
while on foreign soil, Biden took the opportunity to blast him, even veering into criticism of domestic policy as he launched
into what sounded like a stump speech.
is Mutual, Joe. I don't think we have commented on Joe Biden's disgraceful performance at the Munich Security
Conference yesterday. I haven't seen a full transcript of his remarks, but he delivered a partisan stump speech to an
audience of European leaders. It consisted largely of an attack on the President of the United States. I'm so
old, I can remember when that was considered bad form.
Biden criticizes Trump's policies in Munich speech saying they have undermined America's moral leadership. Joe
Biden isn't in the 2020 presidential race yet, but he's making clear at an international gathering that he thinks President
Trump has undermined America's ability to claim moral leadership. The former vice president says the US doesn't want to
turn its back on its closest allies and cherishes democracy, the rule of law and a free press. Biden tells the Munich
Security Conference that the America he sees 'stands up to the aggression of dictators and against strongmen who rule by
coercion, corruption and violence.'
Dem strategists think Joe Biden's time as a POTUS candidate has likely expired. Three things you should know
about Joe Biden's qualifications to run for the Democrats' presidential nomination this time:
[#1] He and his
entourage once ran up a Paris hotel bill in excess of $500,000 — for one night. So, Joe definitely knows how
to spend other peoples' money.
[#2] As vice president, Biden charged the Secret Service rent for staying on his
property to protect him. So, he also knows how to raise money.
[#3] Joe once declared that John McCain was
too old to become president of the United States at 72. Joe turns 77 this year.
Democrats are in a fret right now because
Joe is reported to be leaning toward a third run for the White House. And he's not only way ahead of all other party
wannabes in early polls, he's ahead of the Oval Office incumbent.
Mythologies of 'Joe Being Joe' Biden. Some polls put 76-year-old Joe Biden as the Democratic front-runner for
the 2020 presidential election. There is certainly some logic to that reckoning. Biden has far more experience
than any of his likely party rivals — 36 years in the Senate, eight years as Barack Obama's vice president,
and two past presidential runs. He may be the only Democratic candidate who could likely win back some of the
"deplorables," "irredeemables," and "clingers" of the critical Midwestern swing states. But all of that said, the
folksy Biden is hardly the sober and judicious alternative to a supposedly reckless Donald Trump. In many ways, Biden
has been far wilder in his speech and decorum — despite nearly a half-century in politics.
Biden once said Democrats needed 'a liberal George Wallace'. Former Vice President Joe Biden, who has been
emphasizing his civil rights record as he considers a 2020 White House bid, once praised notorious segregationist George
Wallace and later claimed to have received an award from him. "I think the Democratic Party could stand a liberal
George Wallace — someone who's not afraid to stand up and offend people, someone who wouldn't pander but would say
what the American people know in their gut is right," Biden told the Philadelphia Enquirer on Oct. 12, 1975, referring to the
racist then-Alabama governor.
cast deep doubt on Biden's 2020 value. Joe Biden is everything a Democratic political consultant should love: He's
experienced, well-liked, and his poll numbers look great against Donald Trump. And yet many party strategists have a bleak
assessment of his potential 2020 campaign: It's a bad, bad idea.
Democrats Are Just Too Smart.
[Scroll down] And no discussion of "smart" Democrats is complete without some mention of former VP Joe Biden. His
gaffes got so bad during the 2008 presidential campaign that candidate Obama asked his staff, "How many times is Biden going
to say something stupid?" And his braying frequently combines brainlessness with offensive racist slurs. Take, for
example, his famous racial stereotyping of his state's convenience store employees: "In Delaware, the largest growth
population is Indian-Americans, moving from India. You cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin' Donuts unless you have a
slight Indian accent." Even more terrifying than the apparent vacuum between Biden's ears is how little thought
rank-and-file party members give to his catalogue of verbal pratfalls. In a recent Morning Consult poll, registered
Democrats ranked him as their top preference for their 2020 presidential nomination. These people would give this guy
access to our nuclear arsenal. Nor have Democrats Johnson and Ocasio-Cortez sustained any reduction in their support
pursuant to their inert gray matter.
Biden-Trump race is shaping up for 2020: Wall Street sources. Former Vice President Joe Biden is indicating to
possible campaign contributors he is seriously considering running for president in 2020 — but only if it's
against the current president, Donald Trump, because of the relatively small age difference between the two men, FOX Business
has learned. Biden has made these remarks recently in private meetings with possible Democratic contributors, many of
them Wall Street executives with long ties to the former vice president under Barack Obama, according to people with direct
knowledge of the matter.
And this guy claims Donald Trump isn't fit to be president?
Joe Biden Gives Away "Agent" Holding Nuclear Codes During Hillary's "Rally". Uncle Joe may have been hitting
the sauce before he spoke at Hillary's low-turnout "rally." He was bashing Trump, when he foolishly said, "Donald
Trump... He cannot be trusted. There's a guy that follows me, has the nuclear codes. So, God forbid anything
happen to the president and I had to make a decision the codes are with me... He is not qualified."
in public and private, tiptoes toward a 2020 run. Former Vice President Joe Biden is tiptoeing toward a
potential presidential run in 2020, even broaching the possibility during a recent gathering of longtime foreign policy aides.
Obama Years: A Legacy Of Scandal and Deception. On December 13, former vice president, Joe Biden, appeared
on CBS with the hosts of "This Morning" where he peddled his new book and showered his former boss with praise. During
the course of the interview, he was asked about his relationship with Obama and responded with the following; "I've served with eight
presidents and I've gotten to know four of them very well. I've never met any president that has more character, more integrity,
and more backbone than this guy does." Then he went completely off the rails when he absurdly added; "And eight years, not a
hint — not a hint — of a scandal. What was perhaps even more outrageous than the statement itself was
the fact that none of This Morning's hosts challenged the veracity of that statement and allowed it to pass without a scintilla
of scrutiny, exposing yet again an extreme bias existing within elements of the establishment media.
Joe Biden Claims Obama Never Had Any Scandals, Ignores These 11 Major Scandals. During a recent appearance on
CBS' "This Morning," former Vice President Joe Biden declared that Barack Obama's presidency didn't have "a hint of a
scandal." Biden made the claim in response to a question by the show's hosts about his friendship with the former
president. After praising Obama as the most virtuous president he's met in his decades of serving the people, Biden
said that not only was the former president spotless, so was his presidency.
Franken, creepy Biden and other horrendous media fiascos. Former Vice President Joe Biden had some of the worst
timing possible this week. The creepy-grabby Biden dropped promotion of his new book, "Promise Me, Dad: A Year of
Hope, Hardship, and Purpose" to push his presidential hopes right in the midst of the sex harassment allegations. It
highlighted how journalism has downplayed or completely ignored Biden's creepy side for many years. It didn't take long
for conservatives to float images and a video around showing all sorts of nausea-inducing Biden scenes.
Al Franken is just the
beginning. How many senators and House members and elected and appointed officials at the federal, state, and
local levels will be forced to resign? And how many men will remain in these positions when it is all over? It's
far too early to say, because the floodgates have only just been thrown open. But the possibilities are mindboggling.
Consider Joe Biden. A few short weeks ago, the former senator and vice president seemed like he would be a leading
contender to win the Democratic nomination for president in 2020 and then the favorite to challenge President Trump's bid
for re-election. But now? Biden's polling may look good, but he has a history of wandering hands that is simply
incompatible with the new normal. He's a political dead man.
Joe Biden Likes To Swim Nude in Front of Female Secret Service Agents. Apparently Vice President Joe Biden, who
is reportedly readying a campaign against Hillary Clinton for the White House, has even creepier habits than we previously
thought. According to Secret Service expert and best selling author Ronald Kessler, Biden likes to skinny dip in front
of female Secret Service agents assigned to protect him. Naturally, they find this offensive. "Talk about a war
on women. Biden likes to swim nude both at his Vice President's residence in Washington and also at his home in Wilmington
which he goes back to several times a week, all at our expense. By the way, a million dollars in Air Force 2
expenses, and this offends female Secret Service agents," Kessler said to Fox News' Sean Hannity Thursday night. "You
know, they signed up to take a bullet for the President as you said but they didn't sign up to...they certainly didn't
sign up to see Biden naked. It is offensive, it's abusive."
Biden Probably Has Brain Damage. Perhaps this doctor is being tongue-in-cheek, but if anyone's paid attention
to the nonstop idiocy of Joe Biden the past several years, it appears he's spot on.
'Arrogant, insensitive, wrong':
US VP Biden causes uproar with remark on Japan's constitution. US Vice-President Joe Biden made a remark
slamming Donald Trump, but ended up in deep water with Japan instead, saying that the US "wrote Japan's constitution."
His comment was slammed as "arrogant", "wrong", and "insensitive" in Japan and beyond.
Embarrasses Himself, Calls Serbia 'Croatia' On Diplomatic Visit. Vice President Joe Biden made an embarrassing
flub Tuesday [8/16/2016] while at a press conference with Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic in Belgrade, referring to
Serbia as "Croatia." "This is not the first time we've met ... I think we've become friends," Biden said, according to
InSerbia. "My visit today is much too short but I believe we've accomplished a great deal. The Prime Minister [of
Serbia Vucic] and I have got to know each other over the past several years and I mean it sincerely, I along with President
Obama respect the leadership you've shown in some very tough challenging moments, Mr Prime Minister, and your positive vision
for the future of Croatia."
very awkward hug with Clinton as she tries to get out of his arms. Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden shared an
awkward hug this morning as they greeted each other at the Scranton airport. 'Hello my dear,' she said as he walked off
his plane. They locked in a friendly embrace, Clinton laughing for a moment, before she tried to wriggle free.
Not picking up on her cues — repeated pats on the arm — Biden continued to hold her by the waist.
The VP finally let Clinton go and they walked to his limo, entering from opposite sides.
Says Trump Can't Be Trusted With Nuclear Codes, Then Tells Crowd He Has the Codes 'Right Back Here'. Vice
President Joe Biden, campaigning with Hillary Clinton in Scranton, Pa. on Monday, tried to make the case that Republican
Donald Trump is temperamentally and intellectually unfit to be president. "I have worked with eight presidents of the
United States. I have served with hundreds of senators... dozens of secretaries of state and secretaries of defense of
both parties. And I can say without hesitation, my word as a Biden, no major party nominee in the history of the United
States of America, has — now, don't cheer or — quiet, just listen — has known less or been
less prepared to deal with our national security than Donald Trump."
Biden Exposes Military Aide with Nuclear Codes During Campaign Rally for Hillary. Vice President Joe Biden
revealed during a campaign rally that he had a military aide with the nuclear codes present at the event. "There's a
guy that follows me right back here, has the nuclear codes," Biden said, turning and pointing.
Trump 'Not Qualified to Know' Nuclear Codes. Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump cannot be trusted
with the codes that would unleash the American nuclear arsenal, Vice President Joseph R. Biden, Jr., said Monday [8/15/2016].
Biden's debut on the campaign trail alongside Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton turned into a forceful attack on her GOP opponent,
whom the vice president said is already hurting America's national security.
Puts Nuclear Codes At Risk, Media Laugh It Off. For those who don't know, it's rather risky to point out the
exact agent holding the nuclear football. But this isn't the first time Biden has done this sort of thing. In May
2011, while speaking with reporters, Biden revealed that the Navy SEALs had killed Osama Bin Laden. The Washington
Times immediately reported that Navy SEALs began warning family members to remove personal information from their Facebook
accounts to avoid targeting.
Biden Exposes His Military Aid Carrying Nuclear Codes At Hillary Rally. During a campaign rally for Hillary
Clinton on Monday, Vice President Joe Biden treated the audience to a master class in irony by claiming Donald Trump is unfit
to have access to the nuclear codes while at the same time proving he himself is unfit to have access to nuclear codes.
The moment came when Biden pointed out the military aid who carries the closely guarded codes — also known as the
Nuclear Football — to the audience.
Joe Biden: The Three Dollar
Bill of American Politics. Once I took a crisis communications course under a nationally recognized authority on the subject.
During a break I was talking to him about the power of anecdotes. He was, he said, against manufacturing anecdotes out of whole cloth but
he believed that someone of even moderate intelligence could create anecdotes by steering a conversation in a certain direction. There is
at least as good a chance of that happening as a fatally ill Beau Biden encouraging his father to run for president. Of course, given the
way Joe Biden makes stuff up, now we really have to question if this anecdote is true... or if this just the Neil Kinnock speech being recycled.
failed presidential bids, penchant for gaffes threaten campaign. As Vice President
Joseph R. Biden spends this week vacationing in South Carolina and mulling whether to get into the
presidential race, he's got to be thinking about the humiliating beatings he took in his two
previous bids for the top job. It's a painful memory of campaigns that went off the rails early
in the 1988 and 2008 presidential races and a poor track record mostly overlooked by unhappy Democrats
clamoring for Mr. Biden to provide them an alternative to Hillary Rodham Clinton.
cheers end of white majority, 'that's a good thing'. Vice President Joe Biden welcomed
a top Latin American leader to Washington by declaring that "those of us of European stock" will be
the minority in less than two years, and, he added, "that's a good thing." Biden made the
comments during a State Department luncheon for Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff.
Warren and Biden. Electing Biden would effectively be Obama's third term. Regarding
Obama's reign, Biden said, "I call it sticking with what works." "Run on what we have done.
Own what we have done. Stand for what we have done. Acknowledge what we have done."
"Are we going to continue this resurgence or are we going to return to policies I would argue have failed
the country in the past?" He actually said "resurgence." Biden wants to continue all of
Obama's disastrous economic policies.
Veep Creep and the Media. One of the clearest signs of media bias is when reporters
are made more uncomfortable by the act of criticizing the Obama administration than by the behavior
they're criticizing. Case in point: yesterday's piece in the Washington Post by Nia-Malika Henderson,
in which she struggles mightily with the fact that, thanks to conservative objections, Joe Biden's
incredibly creepy behavior toward women in public is getting tougher to ignore. Handsy Joe's
veep creep is by now a staple of the Obama administration's public events.
Biden, the crazy uncle we never wanted. Channeling his inner Ted Kennedy, ole Joe got
a little too handsy with Stephanie Carter, the wife of incoming Secretary of Defense, Ash Carter. He
slid behind her, grabbed her shoulders and pressed his face against the side of her head. If I
didn't know better (and I don't), I'd swear he's sniffing her hair. Or perhaps he was just
innocently whispering the gate code for Number One Observatory Circle into her ear. In any other
world, this man would be a walking, talking, sexual harassment lawsuit waiting to happen. Fellas,
conduct this experiment — go to work tomorrow and creep up behind a female coworker, then
grab her shoulders and press your face against her head. See how that works for you.
Week in Pictures: Harfing Biden Edition. And what's up with Vice Groper Joe Biden? Is he
planning on a post-Obama career in the TSA or something?
for Joe Biden to creep on another woman. The victim this time is Stephanie Carter,
wife of incoming defense secretary Ashton Carter, seen here holding forth on ISIS while his better
half suffers the ritual indignity of the vice presidential droit de seigneur at swearings-in. Silver
lining: Unlike most of the females whom Biden creeped on at last month's oath-taking for the new
Congress, Mrs. Carter is of age.
Biden caught 'snuggling' with Defense chief's wife. In a move straight out of the
stalker handbook, Biden appeared to be sniffing Stephanie Carter's hair at a swearing-in ceremony
for her husband in Washington. Biden, who kept his hands on Mrs. Carter's shoulders for
10 seconds, looked as if he was whispering sweet nothings in her ear. Hands folded in
front of her, she gazed stiffly in the direction of her husband during the grope.
Joe Biden's Hands Across
America. Vice President Joe Biden can't keep his hands to himself when women are
around. The latest woman to fall into the Biden snare was Stephanie Carter, wife of new Defense
Secretary Ashton Carter. Biden laid hands on her shoulders and whispered in her ear as Carter spoke
about his new job Tuesday [2/17/2015], and the moment went viral. Biden also made bad headlines for himself in
January when, during a day of trying to charm incoming members of the U.S. Senate and their families, he
bestowed a rather unwanted kiss on the head of Sen. Christopher Coons' (D., Del.) daughter.
Biden's woman-touching habit. Vice President Joe Biden left some observers in and out
of Washington aghast with his whisper-in-ear embrace of new Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter's
wife Stephanie at Carter's swearing-in Tuesday [2/17/2015]. As Carter was delivering his first speech as
Pentagon chief, Biden, standing in the background, put his arms on Stephanie Carter's shoulders and his face
to her ear, apparently telling her something in what could reasonably be interpreted as an intimate embrace.
is a VERY hands-on Vee-Pee. Vice President Joe Biden has become well known for his
love of close talking, and he was at it again on Tuesday [2/17/2015]. Biden was at the swearing
in ceremony of new Defense Secretary Ash Carter, and as Carter delivered his speech, Biden could be
seen in the background with his arms on the shoulders of the man's wife, Stephanie, and whispering
into her ear.
Biden in 2000: No man has the right to touch a woman without her consent. Vice
President Joe Biden has made news — again — with his surprisingly intimate
embrace of a woman not his wife in a public setting. The incident occurred Tuesday at the Washington
swearing-in of new Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter. As Carter spoke, Biden, standing behind
Carter's wife Stephanie, put his hands on her shoulders for an extended period of time and briefly
buried his face in her hair. Some critics noted that such behavior might earn a sexual harassment
complaint if it were in a business setting. And it turns out Biden himself, in his many years as a
senator, supported legislation to get tough on men who touch women in inappropriate ways.
gets smackdown after claiming he knows 'an awful lot' of Somali cab drivers in Delaware home
town. Vice President Joe Biden ran afoul of the nation's two most prominent
fact-checkers on Thursday [2/19/2015] by claiming there's a 'large, very identifiable Somali
community' in his home town, and many of them drive cabs. He said Wednesday during the White
House's 'Countering Violent Extremism' conference that riding in so many Somalis' cabs after train
trips home helped him understand efforts by Minnesota officials to help Somali-American Muslims
avoid turning into violent extremists. 'If you ever come to the train station,' he said of
Wilmington, Delaware, 'you may notice that I have great relations with them, because an awful lot of
them are driving cabs, and are friends of mine.'
Covers Up Biden's Latest Racist Gaffe. Democrats sure got it good. Louisiana Republican Governor
Bobby Jindal dares to agree with CNN's own reporting about European no-go zones, and the left-wing network brands him
an anti-Muslim racist. On the other hand, when Vice President Joe Biden stereotypes Somali immigrants as nothing
more than a bunch of cab drivers, the media pretends it didn't happen. The slur is left completely out of their reporting.
An Awful Lot' Of Somalis Driving Cabs, Says Joe Biden. Vice President Joe Biden told
an audience on Tuesday [2/17/2015] that he has great relationships with Somalis living in America
since many of them have driven him around in taxi cabs. The latest "Bidenism" — the
name given to the Democrat's many gaffes and candid remarks — came during the opening day
of a three-day White House summit on extremism and terrorism.
The Editor asks...
On what date was Joe Biden's most recent trip in a taxi?
we talk about how Vice President Joe Biden is being inappropriate? I know he's crazy
ol' Uncle Joe. I know he's loveable and of a different generation, blah, blah. I know he wears
aviators. I know he has a voting record and a party identification that make this kind of behavior
suddenly charming and eccentric instead of creepy. But while the online feminist community is
fighting the scourge of men who don't cross their ankles on the subway with all it's got, the Vice
President of the United States is making teenage girls actively uncomfortable by nuzzling and
touching them on national TV. This is not charming.
Hell Would Be Unleashed On 'Handsy' Joe Biden If He Were Conservative. Julia Louis-Dreyfus plays a
bumbling (but certainly more competent than Joe Biden) vice president in HBO's "Veep." There's an episode in
season two where it's January 6 and she is supposed to swear in senators but just can't get her act together.
She messes up small talk and doesn't have her head in the game. Yesterday, January 6, was sort of a real-life
version of this. While the man who in real life is a heartbeat away from the presidency also messed up small
talk, he was almost too locked in. He was extremely attentive. Particularly to underage girls.
And, well, it's not that big of a deal, I guess, but it got kind of creepy.
Biden: Extremists Commit Violence 'In The Name Of The Bible'. According to tweet by
participants in the recent White House Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) Summit, Vice President Joe
Biden spoke about violent extremism carried out "in the name of the Bible." The tweet was sent out
by the Muslim Public Affairs Council, which also tweeted that they pushed the White House to say so.
do you aim this thing? Biden has become a laughing-stock and staple of late-night comedians as a dim light-bulb who
can't stop spouting gaffes. Did you know Joe was surprised by the ending of the Lincoln movie? And he's such a team
player that Biden charges the Secret Service rent to protect him at home in Delaware. Biden held a meeting on the administration's
vaunted government transparency promise — but it was closed — two times.
skewers Biden but is ignored by media. Imagine a scathing look at a vice presidential candidate. Put a "R" after
that candidate's name, like Sarah Palin, and you get big-name books, a controversial film and lots of news coverage. Put a "D" after
that candidate's name, even when he's still the sitting vice president, and it gets almost no attention.
Asks for Web Site's 'Number'. Vice President Joe Biden, tasked with overseeing the $787 billion
stimulus package, has been having a little trouble with his "numbers." ... "You know, I'm embarrassed.
Do you know the Web site number?" he asked an aide standing out of view. "I should have it in front of
me and I don't. I'm actually embarrassed." Biden, who seemed to indicate that he thought the
Internet worked like a giant telephone, sounded an unusually Luddite note inside an administration often
heralded for its mastery of the Web.
The Editor says...
Obviouly the press would have had a field day with a comment like that, if it had come from Dan Quayle.
Biden is lying about his college football career, in that he claims he had one. Does it really count as a lie if a
fellow simply can't tell the difference between fantasy and reality? Yes. Yes, it does. Insanity is no excuse.
Two More Brutal Biden Gaffes on
Campaign Trail. Two epic gaffes at one campaign stop. First, Vice President Joe Biden told a group of supporters
that Paul Ryan "has written a book called The Young Guns with two other members of the House, no these are Republican
leaders in the House. You had, unfortunately, the bullets are aimed at you." Then he lost track of which version of
planet Earth he's on and wondered who in the audience had served in our war with Iran.
"What's He Doing Back There?"
A woman was warming up the crowd, talking about breast cancer — a serious topic, one would think. But Biden couldn't
stand to go for more than a few moments without playing the buffoon. So, growing impatient, he sidled over to Nelson, whispered
something to him, and then started making goofy squatting motions to encourage the crowd to sit down.
VP Debate, Biden Seemed to Overstate His Role in Social Security Reform. Asked about Medicare reform, the vice president
said, "Look, I was there when we did that with Social Security in 1983. I was one of eight people sitting in the room that
included Tip O'Neill negotiating with President Reagan. We all got together and everybody said, as long as everybody's in the
deal, everybody's in the deal, and everybody is making some sacrifice, we can find a way." [...] But according to the historical
record, Biden was not one of the small group of people in "the room," or in "the meeting" — nor was he even a key
player in reforms.
List of Biden's
Political Blunders. [For example,] On July 16, 2009, Biden gave a blunt summation of the
administration's approach to stimulus spending. "People, when I say that, look at me and say, 'What
are you talking about, Joe? You're telling me we have to go spend money to keep from going bankrupt?"
he said at a stop in Virginia. "The answer is yes."
Classified Information? Biden told his dinnermates about the existence of a secret bunker under
the Vice President's Residence at the U.S. Naval Observatory. ... Despite more than fifteen trips to the VPR
over the past five years, and despite having conducted dozens of interviews about security precautions taken
for Cheney and his staff after 9/11, I was never told such a bunker existed. ... The obvious conclusion:
Its existence was highly classified. So what was Joe Biden doing talking about it at the Gridiron Dinner?
Reveals Location of Secret VP Bunker. Vice President Joe Biden, well-known for his verbal
gaffes, may have finally outdone himself, divulging potentially classified information meant to save the
life of a sitting vice president.
Aide Denies Vice President Leaked Classified Location of Cheney Bunker. Vice President Joe Biden
did not leak classified information when he reportedly described to dinner guests the location of a "hideaway"
his predecessor, Dick Cheney, used in the days following the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, an aide to Biden
said Monday. "There was no disclosure of classified information," spokeswoman Elizabeth Alexander said.
Spoken down to by dimwits.
The world trembled last year as a terrible prospect loomed: The next vice-president of the US might
be a complete moron. ... Did Dan Quayle ever deliver a speech this incoherent? "You are the possible. That
is not hyperbole. You are the possible." It isn't hyperbole. It also isn't anything close to
gaffe: New rail tunnel being built for cars? Biden said Amtrak was getting its share of stimulus
money and more projects would be announced in a few days. Then he offered this: "Look, this is
designed, this totally new tunnel, is designed to provide for automobile traffic," Biden said. "It's
something, as you know, up your way, that's been in the works and people have been clamoring for for a long
time." For the record, the tunnel is for trains, and its completion would allow for more NJ Transit
trains during peak hours and "one-seat" rides into Midtown Manhattan on lines serving Bergen and Passaic
counties. Currently riders on those lines must switch trains.
Palin Vs. Biden:
At the Washington press corps' Gridiron Dinner last month, Biden may have compromised national security by
revealing the location of the secret underground protective facility built for the vice president's protection
during an enemy attack or other emergency. And after Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal delivered the GOP
response to Obama's first speech to Congress in February, the vice president claimed that "in Louisiana there's
400 people a day losing their jobs. What's he doing?" Louisiana, in fact, was the only state in the
union adding jobs. ... At a ball for Obama staff the day after he was sworn in by Supreme Court Justice John
Paul Stevens, Biden seemed to think his oath was administered by Justice Potter Stewart, who died in 1985.
John Boehner: Joe Biden's lying about stimulus.
Vice President Joe Biden is invading House Minority Leader John Boehner's back yard tomorrow to tout the success of the
stimulus package, but Boehner is redoubling his attacks, accusing the vice president of lying about the economy. "I
found it ... interesting over the last couple of days to hear Vice President Biden and the president mention the fact that
they didn't realize how difficult an economic circumstance we were in," Boehner said. "Now this is the greatest
fabrication I have seen since I've been in Congress."
Dead Cows and Other Biden Health
Care Whoppers. Biden said he wanted to make sure people understood the health care debate in plain
language, without the kind of wonky jargon that dominates discussions of such subjects. In the course of
doing so, he made some bizarre analogies and never allowed the facts to get in the way.
Joe Biden: 'We Have to Go Spend Money
to Keep From Going Bankrupt'. Vice President Joe Biden told people attending an AARP town hall meeting that
unless the Democrat-supported health care plan becomes law the nation will go bankrupt and that the only way to avoid that
fate is for the government to spend more money.
Biden's Terrible Truths. The "gaffes," as we call unscripted thoughts, come delightfully often with
Biden. ... Let's take a quick review. ... Swine Flu. Should we panic? "I would tell members of my
family — and I have — I wouldn't go anywhere in confined places now," Biden said, adding, "When
one person sneezes, it goes all the way through the aircraft." This statement was so true it
was retracted by the end of the day.
Biden apologize for using Christ's name as a curse word? Can you imagine the uproar that would ensue
if the Vice President of the United States used the name of Islam's supreme being as a curse word? ... How many more
stupid comments does it take before his handlers in the White House realize it's time for this dunce to retire?
gaffes undercut Obama. The Obama White House's vaunted message machine has been thrown off-track
with increasing regularity by Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., whose five verbal missteps in the
past three months have created obstacles at home and abroad. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton
was forced Sunday [7/26/2009] to correct publicly Mr. Biden's characterization of Russia as a crumbling
country, a description that infuriated Russian officials and contradicted President Obama's efforts to
"reset" relations with the world power.
Big Mouth Bites Russia. Obama cannot afford his second in command making unpredictable and
Joe Biden's "Reset" Button? Republicans in my view failed last fall to point out Biden's train
wreck of a record. They allowed the American people to be told that Joe Biden has foreign policy credentials.
They never pointed out that Joe Biden spent 26 years in the U.S. Senate and that his fellow Democrats
never considered him for Majority Leader. Over the past few weeks, we've all learned why.
Joe Biden Said That? Indeed he did.
The Gaffe Czar.
Obama has already been forced to publicly chide his vice president. In fact, a frequent refrain from the
White House has become, "What Joe really meant to say..." Can the president can rein in his veep before
Biden actually does cause an international incident?
Loose lips sink ships.
Biden Spills Beans on Automaker's Full Line
of New Vehicles. Vice President Joe Biden, during a visit Tuesday to a Delaware automotive
assembly plant, unwittingly revealed startup manufacturer Fisker Automotive's undisclosed plans to produce
a full line of plug-in hybrid vehicles at the facility.
Biden Strikes Again.
Joe Biden says many dumb things, but this, on Elena Kagan's opposition to military recruiters on campus, is up
there with the worst of them.
Biden update: Off to Africa now for some reason. Because of the ongoing crisis of the gulf
oil spill, the stubborn reluctance of the private sector to create many new jobs after 15 months of billion-dollar
stimulus spendings and the emotional and political volatility surrounding the Arizona illegal immigrant law,
Vice President Joe Biden has been dispatched to Africa for a while.
Must Be Joking: Biden Says 'Iranian Influence in Iraq Is Minimal'. The entire idea behind
Iran's proxy warfare is to have deniability so the regime can escape retribution and still position itself as
the power broker that all must cater to. If the Iranians needed any reassurance that their strategy is
working, they got it from Vice President Joe Biden on August 23.
Biden Says that 'The Taliban, Per Se, Is Not Our Enemy'. The ongoing reconciliation process has
long included bringing in forces who have taken up arms against the U.S. and against the Afghan government,
but Biden might face criticism for stating that as an organization the Taliban is not the enemy of the U.S., when
its leadership and members have devoted so much time, resources and energy towards killing American soldiers.
"Potatoe?" Biden to Visit "Road Island". Dan Quayle is actually an exceptionally bright man who
had an unfortunate mishap at the chalkboard with an unnecessary vowel. Joe Biden, the fun Homer Simpson
of the Obama Administration, has suffered far greater gaffes; the latest from the administration on his behalf.
Two words: "Road Island."
Joe Biden heading to 'Road Island'. Joe Biden's camp might be overly-reliant on spell-check.
The White House recently announced that the Vice President would be attending campaign events in "Road Island."
The glaring misspelling of the Ocean State showed up in a widely-distributed press release detailing Biden's upcoming
The Editor says...
While I disagree with everything Joe Biden stands for, I still have to point out that this error surely wasn't
Biden's fault. The culprit is probably some secretary, with a lower-case "s". It just goes to show
that spell checkers cannot make up for poor education.
Biden's speeches are boring!
Man Literally Struggles to Stay Awake
During Biden Speech. "Americans are tired of being tired," Joe Biden said.
Biden Claims He Voted Against Afghanistan, Iraq Wars.
Then Sen. Biden voted for the Afghanistan resolution on Sept. 14, 2001 which authorized "the use of United States Armed Forces against those
responsible for the recent attacks launched against the United States." And on Oct. 11, 2002, Biden voted for a resolution authorizing
unilateral military action in Iraq, according to the Washington Post.
Why is Joe Biden a Moron? It almost seems
impossible. Giving Americans advice to step out their door and fire warning shots from a double barrel shotgun when they're afraid?
Biden on Election of Pope: 'Catholic Church Plays an Essential Role in My Life'. After the election of Pope Francis I
on Wednesday [3/13/2013], Vice President Joe Biden issued a statement talking about the importance of Catholicism to him personally
and how much he is looking forward to working with the pope. As vice president, Biden has advanced causes directly contrary to the
teachings of the Catholic Church — favoring, for example, the legalized killing of children in the womb and legalized
Biden gaffe. Vice President Biden misspoke on Tuesday [3/18/2014], claiming he had led the fight for
Poland to join NATO when he served as chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Biden, whose tendancy [sic]
toward gaffes is well known, served as chairman from 2001 to 2003; Poland joined NATO in 1999. "Fifteen years ago, I was
honored, as the chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, to lead the fight for Poland's admission into NATO," Biden said
in Warsaw, Poland, on Tuesday during a visit to reassure allies as Russia moved to annex Crimea. Bloomberg News
first reported the gaffe.
Biden jokes that he would nominate Obama for 'sainthood'. Vice President Joe Biden
in a speech Friday [3/21/2014] joked that he should have nominated President Obama for "sainthood"
after seeing his patience during the rocky rollout of the health law's new insurance exchanges.
The Editor says...
Mr. Biden apparently mistakes incompetence and narcissistic detachment for patience.
Joe Biden thinks 'Africa' is a country, not a continent. Vice President Joe Biden
wants everyone to know that he has high hopes for the 'nation' of Africa. Biden isn't just a
walking gaffe machine — he's a walking gaffe top-ten list. So when he goofed at Tuesday's
U.S.-Africa Business Forum, and there was no F-bomb involved, it didn't make headlines. But gaffe
he did, in front of 50 world leaders and their entourages at the event held on the sidelines of
President Barack Obama's U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit.
Joe Biden gaffes while Vice President
Senator Biden was Barack Obama's running mate in 2008, and he got away with a lot of blunders that would have sent
Dan Quayle into political oblivion. His voting record in the Senate was that of a statist, and back in 2008
some commentators said Joe Biden balanced the ticket (meaning he's older and has lighter skin), but I think the
real reason for his selection is that he was one of the few people Obama could overshadow, at least in the press.
Biden confuses Poland with Portugal. Biden has a well-earned reputation as a gaffe-maker extraordinaire, and this speech was no exception.
Biden: 'I'm Proud To Be President'.
Joe Biden the gaffe machine was at it again Saturday [1/19/2013]. Speaking at the Iowa State Society inauguration ball, the Vice President
said, "I'm proud to be President of the United States".
Joe Biden Escapes from the Attic ... Again.
Last Friday [9/28/2012], the Obama re-election campaign allowed America's crazy uncle to get in front of a group of Florida seniors
and frighten the bejabbers out of them with horror stories about the evil designs Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan have on Medicare and
Social Security. As his entourage cringed in the background, Biden brayed as only he can bray.
Tampa tantrum. "Are you going to Florida?" Biden joked to reporters during a campaign stop in Minneapolis the other day.
"I'm going to be the speaker at the convention." Such trash talk is typical of the increasingly deracinated veep, whose motor mouth now
seems beyond the control of even campaign consigliere David Axelrod's well-oiled media machine. But what's really behind this stunning
example of in-your-face poor sportsmanship?
Biden dangerously detached from reality.
Vice President Joseph R. Biden is mentally unstable, and it's time for Republicans to point it out. For years, Mr. Biden has been making
outrageous comments that reveal not only his low intelligence, but also a dangerous detachment from reality. Yet the liberal media refuse
to hold him accountable. Instead, their rationalization boils down to one excuse: Joe will be Joe. He may make bizarre, even
ludicrous, statements, but the press corps believes Mr. Biden is on the side of the angels. His heart is in the right place. He
is a trendy progressive. In their view, this is all that matters.
Win One for the
Fibber: Biden Misleads Ohio on College Football Career. During a speech at Ohio University in Athens, OH on September 8, Vice
President Joe Biden led his audience to believe he had been a college football player for his alma mater — Delaware University —
and had played against Ohio University in a 1963 football game. His words contradicted his own memoir, in which he wrote he gave up playing
football while at Delaware, and Internet records of past Delaware football team rosters, on which he is not listed.
advice from Joe Biden: 'Just fire the shotgun through the door'. In an interview with Field & Stream magazine on
Monday [2/25/2013], Vice President Joe Biden once again touted shotguns as the best weapon for self-defense, offering advice similar
to the questionable instructions he gave during a Facebook town hall last week.
Every single bit
of gun advice Biden gives will get you arrested. These are the people who think they know better than you and should dictate
your firearms choices.
New Biden brag: He
desegregated movie theaters. Vice President Biden is amazed when whites try to act like they know what blacks have
been through, but given a chance this week to brag on his part to end Jim Crow laws, he offered up that he helped to desegregate
movie theaters as a kid.
misspeaks again: Gabby Giffords was 'mortally wounded'. Vice President Joseph R. Biden added to his long list of verbal
flubs Thursday [3/21/2013] when he said former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords had been "shot and mortally wounded." The Arizona Democrat
was critically injured by a gunshot wound to the head during an assignation attempt on her life in early 2011.
Biden Mocks the Basis of Second Amendment.
This guy is the vice president, the former chairman of the Judiciary Committee, and supposedly a leading Democratic expert on gun issues.
And yet, he doesn't understand the Second Amendment.
Joe Biden: Al Gore 'was elected president'. In remarks made on Tuesday night
[6/11/2013] at a fundraiser for Massachusetts Senate candidate Ed Markey in front of an audience of donating (doting?)
Democrats, Biden went for the jugular. In a reference to Al Gore, who introduced Biden at the Washington, D.C.,
event, Biden said, "This man was elected president of the United States of America," according to the pool report. "But for
the good of the nation, when the bad decision, in my view, was made, he did the right thing for the nation," Biden continued.
Says he understands 'the Senate better than any man or women who's ever served in there.'
Biden Calls Republicans 'Neanderthals'.
Vice President Joe Biden said Repulican opposition to the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) in the House of Representatives came from the
"Neanderthal crowd." And he gave himself credit for coming up with the law almost 20 years ago.
Should Joe Biden Step Down?
Vice President Biden is being urged by liberal activists to "brush up his Shakespeare." His friends are trying
desperately to clean up the latest mess that Joe Biden has caused. He recently told a group at a Legal Services
Corporation event that his son, Beau Biden, had worked to protect our soldiers from "Shylocks" — whom he described
as unscrupulous lenders. This is only one of the oldest anti-Semitic slurs in our language.
Overstates Deaths in Joplin, Missouri Tornado By 160,839. "161,000 brothers, sisters,
mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, grandparents lost," said the vice president. But as Reuters
reported in 2011, the death toll was in fact 161.
Biden Tells Harvard Students China a Part of North America. Speaking at Harvard's
Kennedy School of Government, Biden made yet another blunder after saying that "North America is
literally — not figuratively — the epicenter of energy in the world today." "North America will
account — meaning Mexico, China and Canada — for two-thirds of the growth of global energy supply over
the next 20 years," Biden said.
issues second apology of weekend, after offending US allies in fight to destroy Islamic State. Vice President Biden on Sunday [10/5/2014]
issued his second apology of the weekend for remarks that offended allies that the U.S. needs in the fight to destroy the Islamic State. Biden
apologized by phone Sunday to Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, saying he never meant to imply that his country was
supporting Al Qaeda fighters in Syria.
a rattled Obama and Biden need help explaining what they really mean. Remember, Obama
was supposed to be the golden-tongued orator whose words would woo the masses and hold back the
tides of time. As long as he could rely on a teleprompter, that was true for a while. Now, his
mis-steps with those of Pancho Biden resemble circus clowns running into each other. Biden has
said so many stupid things so often, you'd think he should have been replaced in 2012. But he
may be Obama's best insurance against impeachment.
still has confidence in Biden despite gaffes. The White House said Monday [10/6/2014] that
President Obama still has confidence in Vice President Joseph R. Biden despite an escalating series
of public gaffes that forced Mr. Biden to apologize to key Arab allies in the fragile U.S. coalition
fighting Islamic State terrorists. Mr. Biden "continues to be a core member of the president's
national security team," said White House press secretary Josh Earnest. "The president is pleased
to be able to rely on his advice."
Apologies Biden Owes Americans. In recent days, Vice President Biden has issued
apologies to the no doubt unimpeachably honorable and suitably aggrieved leaders of Turkey and the
United Arab Emirates for insulting them by saying they had supported Islamists. While Biden
expressing serial regrets, I wonder, what if the thought occurred to him to apologize to the American
people? Not for silly gaffes or little blunders, but for professional-league, first-class outrages
that are unacceptable coming from a vice president, even this one.
Misstates Troops Wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan By 47,000. Vice President Joe Biden
misstated the number of troops wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan by 47,000 at a Veterans Day event
today at Arlington National Cemetary [sic].
Communist China's official propoganda outlet to hit Romney. Vice President turned to an admittedly-incredible source of
information to attack Republican Mitt Romney, as he quoted the state-run media outlet in Communist China during a campaign stop in Iowa.
"I'm not the only one who thinks it's laughable," Biden said of Romney's position on President Obama's handling of China and economic issues.
"We're not the only ones who think it's laughable. Look, I seldom ever quote the Chinese — official government Chinese news
agency." (For some reason, the audience laughed at that comment, not at the part that Biden said was "laughable.")
Green Bay Gaffe: Claims Only 1,980 Troops Have Died in Afghanistan. Biden somehow subtracted from the Defense
Department count, ignoring three civilian casualties and 118 soldiers who died in other countries after medical evacuation.
Did they not deserve to be recognized?
The Editor says...
If you're a Catholic, you should be highly offended by the rest of Biden's comments, which I will not quote here.
Biden: Back on the chain gang. Vice
President Joe Biden told a racially mixed audience Wednesday [sic - Tuesday 8/14/2012] that if Republicans take back the White House, "They're
going to put y'all back in chains." [...] There's no reason for the Obama campaign to apologize because hacking at the raw wound of racism is
critical to the Democrats' reelection strategy. This race is about race because if it were about issues, Democrats would lose. Mr.
Obama's moribund economic record would guarantee that.
decodes Joe Biden's racial-speak for other Americans. [Scroll down] He's talking to a significantly black crowd and he warns what
Gov. Romney is going to do to help those evil banks: "Romney wants to let the — he said in the first 100 days he's going to let
the big banks once again write their own rules, unnnn-chain Wall Street. They're going to put y'all back in chains." A guy from
Scranton living in Delaware on the public payroll since Obama was in grade school suddenly talking like a faux Southern preacher. [...] The campaign
reacted to the public shock in typical Obama fashion. It's the country's fault for hearing anything racial in that. Just like the lousy
economy and poor job growth is always somebody else's fault.
Beclowns Himself With Cynical Racist Pandering. Looks like Vice President Joe Biden has been taking extracurricular Democratic
jive-talking lessons. The results of condescending liberals' cynical racial pandering attempts are, as always, seismically cringe-inducing.
At a campaign event in Danville, Va., the gaffetastic veep dropped his g's and picked up a bizarre twang in front of an audience of black voters.
Middle-Class Joe swapped his Home Depot apron for an A.M.E. preacher's robe and sermonized about the big, bad GOP.
Davis: 'Every black person in the room knew who y'all was'. Former Rep. Artur Davis, a one-time President Obama supporter
who campaigned for Mitt Romney earlier today [8/15/2012], slammed VP Joe Biden in an interview with CNN's Wolf Blitzer earlier, keeping the
controversy over his "chains" comment going.
Is Joe Biden Too Dumb To Be On a
National Ticket? As you have probably heard, Joe Biden did it again today [8/15/2012]: he forgot what century we are
living in. This follows a bad day yesterday, when Biden forgot what state he was in, and then told a Virginia audience that the
Republicans are "going to put y'all back in chains." Oh, today Biden also referred to Paul Ryan as "Governor Ryan." Such blunders
are conventionally referred to as gaffes, but with Biden they come so fast and furiously that one wonders whether something else is at work.
The Trouble with Joe. [Scroll down] Willie
Geist, a co-host of MSNBC's Morning Joe, was blunt: "If Paul Ryan, the Republican candidate, said that to an African-American audience,
there would be calls this morning for him to get out of the race, for Mitt Romney to withdraw from the race. There's a double standard."
But there has been a double standard for Joe Biden for decades, and almost every reporter in Washington knows it. Last night, a
frustrated Rudy Giuliani acknowledged it on CNBC. "I've never seen a vice president that has made as many mistakes, said as many stupid
things," he told Larry Kudlow.
'Folks, Where's it Written We Cannot Lead the World in the 20th Century in Making Automobiles?' In a speech today in
Virginia, Vice President Joe Biden seemed to forget we're in the 21st century. [Video clip] 'Folks, where's it written we cannot
lead the world in the 20th century in making automobiles?," said Biden.
Biden has a record with
slave-themed remarks. Vice President Joseph R. Biden's incendiary comment to a largely black audience Tuesday [8/14/2012] about
Republican Mitt Romney wanting to put voters "back in chains" isn't the first time he has used slavery imagery in a political appeal.
In 2006, when then-Delaware senator was campaigning in South Carolina for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination, he reminded people
that he represented a former slave state.
Biden Won't Back Down on "Chains" Gaffe.
Outrageous? Yes, that's a fair description when a vice president tells a largely black audience that the GOP policies will "put y'all back in
chains." Biden is trying to defend this as another quote taken out of context, but once again the context is perfectly clear.
Obama Campaign Sending
Gaffe-Prone Biden to Solid Blue States. The Obama campaign will send Joe Biden to three safe blue states next week, a move indicating the campaign may fear
the effect of the vice president's increasingly frequent gaffes.
Furiously: Obama Camp, Allies Emerge To Defend Joe Biden Claim That GOP Will Enslave You. It has become a sadly predictable routine
in recent weeks: a prominent member of the Obama campaign, reaching for a rhetorical flourish or a memorable sound bite, says something rather
impolitic about their Republican opponents. When the comment blows up into a furor, President Barack Obama's allies — and even
members of the campaign — emerge to defend the remark. Now, spinning at several hundred RPMs, the President and his supporters
in the media are making sure to cover up for Vice President Joe Biden's assertion that Republican politicians are devoted to putting
minorities "back in chains."
Why Did Biden Play the Race Card?
What to make of Joe Biden's apparent racial demagoguery this week in Danville, Virginia? Team Obama dismissed it as having nothing to do with race, but
this is likely wrong: Biden certainly seemed to be referencing slavery, was doing so in a Southern dialect, and speaking in a city that is roughly split
between whites and African Americans.
Biden's unscripted moments keep campaign on its toes.
A Joe Biden campaign event can at times have the feel of a high-wire act. Sure, there's a prompter in place, and a message of the day he's been tasked to
deliver. But the vice president's freelancing can begin almost immediately.
White House defends Biden, says remarks
not racist. The White House launched into damage control mode Thursday to deal with the growing chorus of Republicans and at least one
Democrat accusing Vice President Biden of race-baiting after Biden told a mostly black crowd in Virginia that Republicans want to "put y'all back in
chains." Biden's comments were "without question" a racial appeal, said former Virginia Gov. Doug Wilder, a Democrat and the nation's first
elected African-American governor.
Who's Smarter: Joe Biden or Yogi Berra? Cranking it up at a roaring campaign rally, Biden
says: "With you we can win North Carolina." He was in Virginia at the time. Earlier, he told the crowd, ""Romney wants to, he said in the first
100 days, he's going to let the big banks once again write their own rules. Unchain Wall Street." Then slipping into a southern accent, he finished
with, "They're going to put y'all back in chains." Nice move, Joe — except the many black folks in the crowd weren't laughing.
Former Gov. Wilder questions Biden's value to Obama
campaign. Since yesterday afternoon, former Virginia Gov. Douglas Wilder and the Obama White House have been engaged in a back-and-forth spat that began
with Wilder criticizing Vice President Joe Biden for seemingly dragging slavery into the current political debate. [...] Wilder said that the "chains" remark and the
gaffe mixing up North Carolina and Virginia suggesting that the vice president doesn't have his "act together."
Gaffe Alert Level Three: Joe
Biden Press Shop Literally Trying to Edit Media Reports. The controversy surrounding Vice President Joe Biden's offensive claim that Republicans want to
enslave black Americans has become such a concern to the Obama White House that the veep's staff have resorted to trying to directly censor the news coverage about him.
In what is widely believed to be an unprecedented move, the Biden press shop has severely restricted access to vice president and begun telling journalists what they should
write about his activities as they write them up.
Joe Biden's Moral Illiteracy. Vice President Joe Biden has
made a long career out of saying crude and stupid things, and now he has outdone himself by affecting a southern accent and telling a substantially black audience in
Virginia (he seemed to think he was in North Carolina) that if Romney has his way "he gonna put y'all back in chains." The Obama campaign already has established
its reputation as a lowlife operation, trafficking in risibly and plainly untrue statements — Mitt Romney killed my wife! — but the latest from
Biden is so grotesque and morally illiterate that it deserves a special mention.
Biden sent home to Delaware to start weekend early. Biden's retreat home during
the increasingly frenetic 2012 race comes amid increased criticism for his campaign-trail performance. Biden was slated to share an uncomfortable lunch with President
Barack Obama on Thursday, following his disastrous week on the campaign trail, which culminated with a racially inflammatory warning to African-American supporters that Mitt
Romney will "put y'all back in chains."
WH blows off first black governor's rebuke of Joe
Biden. White House Press Secretary Jay Carney dismissed a rebuke of Joe Biden offered by former Gov. Doug Wilder, D-Va., in response to Biden's "chains"
comment. Wilder, the first black governor elected in the country, faulted Biden for saying "they're going to put y'all back in chains" during a recent campaign
stop. "Slavery is nothing to joke about!" Wilder said yesterday [8/15/2012].
The incredible lightness of
Biden. The vice president isn't just terrible at speaking — he's awful at his job.
Biden should apologize
for "back in chains" remark. When Vice President Joe Biden warned a Virginia rally of hundreds of African Americans that Republican efforts to
loosen bank regulations meant "They're going to put y'all back in chains," Stephanie Cutter, Team Obama's deputy campaign manager, said the president would
have "no problem with those comments."
Media Rushing Out
White Guilt Political Campaign Again — To Criticize Obama Is Racist. If you don't support Barack Obama, you are racist.
So says MSNBC and Obama White House guest Touré who goes on to classify Republicans as the "all white party" that has been programmed to
hate Black people. These comments come after it was Obama Vice President Joe Biden's now infamous "back in chains" gaffe that has even Black
Americans shaking their heads wondering what is going on with the Obama campaign.
From Hope and Change to Dope and Chains. As everyone in
the galaxy has by now learned, our esteemed Vice President spoke before a group of Barack Obama's remaining supporters last week and included the following
in his observations about Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan: "Look at what they value, and look at their budget. And look what they're proposing ... unchain
Wall Street. They're gonna put y'all back in chains." This was no slip of the tongue. It was in a prepared speech delivered with the aid of a
teleprompter, and it is part of the trifecta of fear on which he and his boss are betting in the hope that a majority of the electorate can be frightened
into voting for them in November.
America's lying eyes. President Obama's
answer on Wednesday to a question about his running mate claiming Republicans are going to put "y'all back in chains" was a classic bit of soothing presidential
palaver. "I don't think you or anybody who's been watching the campaign would say that in any way we have tried to divide the country," he said about a
moment in which Joe Biden had done precisely that.
Biden's Tourrette Problem. Joseph Biden's career
is chock-full of career-threatening gaffes — had they been committed by a conservative. But last week was exceptional, even for Joe. [...] This
dufus has bumbled for decades in a praised senate career and become Vice President of the United States, while the professional media looked respectfully away from
his stream of idiocy. Only now, under the glare of ubiquitous scrutiny, social media and a hotly contested presidential race, they can't quite keep him under
Liberals exploiting blacks is a tired trend.
Black history hasn't taught us much, or so it seems when we see it continually reduced to a self-serving prop by those who regard it as a tool for advancement.
Joe Biden telling a Virginia crowd of blacks that GOP policies are "gonna put y'all back in chains" is just any echo of shameless exploitations we've all heard before.
Joe Biden's Gaffes Call For A
Thorough Neurological Examination. [Scroll down] Biden should submit to a thorough neurological and psychiatric examination, with special
attention to whether he is experiencing "transient ischemic attacks" — marked by impaired blood flow to the brain — small strokes, seizures, or
suffers from a brain tumor. After all, we often demand to know whether a candidate has recovered from open-heart surgery, cancer or a stroke, and many states
require elderly drivers to be re-licensed. Aren't the vice-president's highest-level security clearance and his influence on public policy as important as the
ability to drive a car?
Will Hillary Save The White House For Obama?
According to the press and political talk show hosts who are usually "in the know", it appears that the major players in the vice presidential chats are President
Barack Obama, Michelle Obama, former President Bill Clinton, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and the President and First Lady's good friend and White House
Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett. As far as Vice President Joe Biden is concerned, he will probably find out if his White House status has changed just moments
before the rest of us do. When it comes to winning this election, loyalty has no place in the alleged-friendship between the President and the Vice
President. Obama wants to win this thing at any and all costs.
Biden and the Black Talented Tenth. In a statement to a
predominately black audience, Vice President Joe Biden, while attacking Gov. Romney, uttered these words: "He's going to let the big banks once again write
their own rules — unchain Wall Street! They gawn' put y'all back in chains. You would think it remarkable that in the year 2012, a
powerful politician who is one heartbeat away from being the president of the United States could show such insensitivity for over 40 million black Americans
and get away with it.
If Biden Were
Republican... Following in former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani's footsteps, the Wall Street Journal's Peggy Noonan on Sunday [8/19/2012]
made a strong comment about the media's handling of Vice President Joe Biden's recent miscues. Appearing on NBC's Meet the Press, Noonan
said, "If it had been a Republican vice presidential candidate who had made those gaffes... the subject today of the panel would be how stupid is this
person, can this person possibly govern?"
Joe Biden — The Gift You Can't Get Rid Of. The
more he speaks in public the more fuel he provides for the Republican electoral effort. And the question that just has to be asked is "how did we end
up with this guy?" There are probably a lot of answers that will make the rounds, if it is truly made the subject of debate. At the risk of
commiting heresy, this writer would like to suggest one that is unlikely to get much attention elsewhere; that Obama picked Biden precisely because he is a
buffoon, and Obama's image benefits from the contrast.
Joe Biden's Asinine Comments Aren't Cute Anymore.
The fact that Joe Biden is only a heartbeat away from the presidency should not only scare the hell out of every American, it should be reason enough for the
Romney-Ryan ticket to win the 2012 election by a landslide. Once again, Vice President Joe Biden has been explained, re-explained, and even embarrassingly
apologized for from the "left" while the Vice President tries to explain what he claims he really meant when he blurted out his latest horrendous comment.
The Scarecrow of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. It is not completely
impossible that in a moment of electoral desperation, Joseph Robinette Biden Jr will be called into a private meeting with Valerie Jarrett and
David Axelrod and told that it's time for him to announce that he wants to spend more time with his family. But it's not very likely.
The chief function of a Vice President is making the President look good, and by that measure Joe Biden is one of the best vice presidents who ever lived.
Biden 'considers $379,000 income middle class'. Joe Biden considers himself to be part of America's middle
class, despite his $379,000 income. Speaking to the National Council of La Raza in Las Vegas about home ownership,
the vice president said that the upper class 'doesn't get it — for middle class folks like me and you, owning a
home is the single most consequential element to our existence.' President Obama has been heavily campaigning his
$250,000 threshold that would cause income taxes to rise for the wealthy.
Jurassic Ideas About How Jobs Are Created. On a day when unemployment topped 8% for the 41st month in a row, it's worth noting
Vice President Joe Biden told Ohioans Tuesday that "so-called job creators" don't build the economy. It explains a lot.
Biden: 'So-called job creators' don't build
economy. Vice President Joe Biden faulted Mitt Romney for believing that "so-called job creators" build the economy, as he suggested
that government spending and increased taxes on the wealthy would provide long-term economic strength. "[Romney believes] somehow, that those
so-called job creators will make everything okay for the rest of us," Biden said at the National Education Association conference.
'Imagine a World in Which Hunger Is Vanquished by Crops That Don't Depend on Soil, Water or Fertilizer'. Vice President
Joe Biden told the graduating seniors of Cypress Bay High School in Florida today [6/4/2012] that they should imagine a world where hunger no longer
exists because crops grow without the need of soil, water or fertilizer. That world will soon be here, Biden told the students.
The vice president also said to dream of charging stations for electric cars at local high schools, "solar shingles" on the roofs of their
homes — and an end to nuclear weapons.
Jill and Michelle 'Would Not Have Any
Chance' Without Govt.. Vice President Joe Biden said Tuesday [6/5/2012] that his wife, as well as the wife of President
Barack Obama, would have had "no chance" in life had it not been for government help.
List of Vice President Joe Biden's Verbal Gaffes. [Scroll down] But if he hadn't made these cringeworthy gaffes, he wouldn't be
the off-the-cuff, straight-shooting, error-prone vice president we know.
de Mayo with Biden. Vice President Joe Biden rang in Cinco de Mayo on Dos de Mayo with a breakfast at the Naval
Observatory and a joke about the Mexican ambassador being a waiter.
Obama agenda like 'legalizing rattlesnakes'. Vice President Joe Biden turned to a counter-productive
metaphor yesterday [4/19/2012], as he likened President Obama's policies to "legalizing rattlesnakes" in a hotel during an
attempt to praise the president. Biden was trying to praise Obama for courageous decisions.
The Motley Fool.
[Vice President Biden] is a walking pratfall, a clown of the tongue-tied, stumbling kind, and only the media's
determined effort to shield the Obama administration from laughter has kept Joe Biden's miscues, misunderstandings,
and mispronouncements from becoming our long-running national joke.
Al Franken is a 'leading legal scholar'. Vice President Joe Biden described former Saturday Night Live comedian,
Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., as a "leading legal scholar," presumably in the Senate, today. "He has been one of the leading
legal scholars," Biden said of Franken today [4/11/2012], according to the pool report. He also said that Franken "is
deadly serious" as a senator.
Top 10 Joe Bidenisms. [#4] Obama
"articulate" and "clean": During the 2008 presidential election, Biden seemingly discovered that blacks can
have sound hygiene. Imagine the howls of racism if a conservative had uttered this statement: "I mean,
you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.
I mean, that's a storybook, man."
Joe who? When a presidential
nominee chooses a running mate as a gimmick, not to accentuate his strengths but to mask his weaknesses, he
is asking for trouble. And when that running mate becomes a laughingstock and a liability, it doesn't
just hurt the ticket but also reflects poorly on the person who did the choosing because it shows he bungled
a major decision.
Hanging On to Biden's
Every Word. This is the fellow who nearly derailed his nascent presidential campaign last year
by calling Mr. Obama "articulate and bright and clean,"
The man who, on the day Mr. Obama
announced him as his running mate, referred to his party's presidential nominee as "Barack America"
man who has said he is running for president (not vice president) and who confused Army brigades with
battalions. Who referred to Ms. Palin as the lieutenant governor of Alaska.
economy with the truth, stupid. Just imagine what the sneering left intelligentsia, in the United States
and elsewhere, would have said if a Republican vice-presidential candidate had told CBS News that "when the stockmarket
crashed [in 1929], Franklin Roosevelt got on television" and informed Americans what had happened. ... Yet the Democrat
Joe Biden made these howlers in an interview with Katie Couric. She did not correct the vice-presidential
candidate. This is the same Couric who grilled Sarah Palin in an interview which aired a few days later.
Biden the bumbler. Sen.
Joe Biden is proving to be a disastrous pick — threatening to bring down the Democratic ticket. The
vice presidential candidate said this week that national leaders should follow the example of President Franklin
Roosevelt's response to a financial crisis. "When the stock market crashed, Franklin D. Roosevelt got
on the television and didn't just talk about the, you know, the princes of greed. He said, 'Look, here's what
happened,'" Mr. Biden told "CBS Evening News." But Herbert Hoover, not Roosevelt, was president when the
stock market crashed in 1929 — a fact commonly known to many high-school students (but apparently not to
Mr. Biden). Moreover, television was barely in existence in those days.
Biden Secret Service Code Name: 'Assassination
Insurance'. Being interviewed by Katie Couric on the "CBS Evening News," Biden said: "When
the stock market crashed, Franklin D. Roosevelt got on the television and didn't just talk about the, you
know, the princes of greed. He said, 'Look, here's what happened.'" For those of you who aren't
hard-core history buffs, Biden not only named the wrong president during the 1929 stock market crash, he also
claimed a president who wasn't president during the stock market crash went on TV before Americans had TVs.
should anyone trust Joe Biden? Joseph Robinette Biden — known to all as "Joe" —
was once the most talked about American politician in Britain. Unfortunately for the senior Delaware
Senator, all the talk was accompanied by incredulous laughter. ... but it wasn't just [plagiarism] which left
his run for the Presidency buried under an avalanche of ridicule.
spins a helicopter tale. When Joe Biden tells voters he understands the threat posed by Afghan
extremists, he dramatically illustrates one reason why: His helicopter was "forced down" on "the
superhighway of terror." Actually, snow, not the enemy, persuaded the helicopter pilot to land and wait
out a storm. The Democratic vice presidential candidate has repeatedly left that part out, in an episode
that Republicans hope will become an echo of Hillary Rodham Clinton's errant tale during the primaries of
landing in Bosnia under sniper fire.
Is Media Allowing Joe Biden to Lie About Drunk Driver Killing His First Wife? Along with the
claim that Joe Biden had a "blue-collar" upbringing — he had a decidedly upper class (though not "rich")
childhood — Joe Biden has for years claimed that his first wife and his daughter were killed by a "drunk
driver" in 1972. However, closer examination of the records proves that the man driving the truck that
slammed into the Biden family car was never charged with drunken driving.
Why does Joe Biden
lie about a 'drunk driver' killing his 1st wife? It is terrible to lose family members to a traffic
accident. But why on earth would a United States Senator fabricate an embellishment and claim that it was a
drunk driver's fault, when the record clearly indicates it was not?
Doomed to defeat. The
choice of Mr. Biden undercuts the moral legitimacy of Mr. Obama's candidacy. Mr. Biden is a
Democratic stalwart who is part of the political status quo Mr. Obama supposedly vows to overturn.
There is nothing new, fresh, post-ideological or post-partisan about Mr. Biden. Hence, Mr. Obama
has lost the compelling rationale for his movement. He is no longer the anti-establishment candidate.
He has quickly become conventional.
of Biden Outrages Many Gunowners. If there were any question about how the majority of American
gunowners would come down on the candidacy of Barrack Obama for president, the doubts vanished in a flash when
Obama picked veteran anti-gun Sen. Joe Biden from Delaware as his running mate. Biden proudly recalled
during a July 23, 2007 Democrat candidates' debate how he was "the guy who originally wrote the assault
weapons ban." Where Obama is on record as opposing concealed carry, and favoring other restrictions,
Biden has a long history of supporting gun control.
Tells 14 Lies During VP Debate. Senator Joe Biden lied at least 14 times during the vice
presidential debate according to those counting at John McCain's presidential headquarters. Tucker
Bounds, a spokesman from GOP presidential candidate John McCain's campaign said in a statement, ""Joe Biden
graduated from his trademark verbal gaffe to outright lie in tonight's debate."
Biden's 14 Lies: [1.] TAX VOTE: Biden said McCain voted "the exact same way" as
Obama to increase taxes on Americans earning just $42,000, but McCain DID NOT VOTE THAT WAY. [2.]
AHMEDINIJAD MEETING: Joe Biden lied when he said that Barack Obama never said that he would sit down
unconditionally with Mahmoud Ahmedinijad of Iran. Barack Obama did say specifically, and Joe Biden
attacked him for it.
Biden Error/Lie/Hallucination List. Not just 14 — updated to 22.
Truthless Joe. Neither
[Jimmy] Carter nor Bill Clinton, whose twists and turns before a grand jury led to his impeachment, ever stared
into the camera and spouted such a string of outright fabrications as if they were gospel truths the way Barack
Obama's running mate did last week. Thankfully, the blogosphere has been having a field day cataloguing
Biden Told: It's "simply not true" that Barack Obama said he'd meet Iran's president without
preconditions, Biden insisted. ... Biden said he's "always supported" clean-coal technology — after
stating emphatically only last month, "We're not supporting clean coal."
Did Biden Get It Wrong? You Betcha.
When you interview for a job, here is a hint: make sure you know what the job is. Joe Biden failed
that test last Thursday [10/2/2008]. He couldn't even get right what a vice president does, but the
media didn't notice.
Bizarre Hezbollah Fantasy: Had Palin spoken as irresponsibly and inaccurately as Bozo Biden
did, she would have faced renewed demands for her withdrawal from the ticket. The double standard
when it comes to candidate accountability remains the most outrageous current example of prevalent
The Clown of Campaign '08:
How is it that an attractive woman who has been involved in state and local government since the early 1990s
without much controversy is now passed off in the media as an airhead? Yet her opponent, long known as
an airhead, a braggart, and even a plagiarist, is now passed off as a statesman?
From Trial-Lawyer Donations, Backs Them in Votes. Joe Biden has been an ally of trial lawyers
throughout his tenure in the U.S. Senate, opposing every effort to curb lawsuits against businesses and
doctors. The lawyers are returning the favor.
Lie, Conservatives Die... Laughing. For openers, Biden is not in favor of clean coal as an alternate
fuel. He has voted against its use every chance he's had during his 36 years in the Senate. And
while I don't know in what cave Biden has been hiding, he must be the only person in America who didn't hear
Barack Obama state that, without any preconditions, he would sit down with Mahmud Ahmadinejad. But that
was only after he informed us that Iran was a small country and in no way a dangerous one.
Obama Campaign Tries to Soften Biden's
Warning — About Obama. On Sunday [10/19/2008], Sen. Joe Biden warned that Barack Obama will
be tested by an "international crisis" if he's elected president. By Tuesday, the Obama campaign was in
damage-control mode, sending out surrogates to explain what Obama's running mate really meant.
Joe the Bumbler.
So what happens when a vice-presidential candidate makes the gaffe to end all gaffes and declares that his own
running mate will trigger an international crisis? In the Year of The One, it's yet another controversy
that is virtually ignored by a national press corps that has become an institutional embarrassment.
McCain Won't Need Training
Wheels. Biden's warning that Obama's lack of experience will prompt tyrants and terrorists to "test" him
within the first six months can only be seen one way — as a confirmation of our worst fears.
Media Deserve Low Ratings They
Receive. Contrasting McCain with his hero, Joe declared a few weeks back, "When the stock market
crashed, Franklin D. Roosevelt got on the television and ... said, 'Look, here's what happened.'" Nice
historical reference. Except when the market crashed in 1929, Hoover was president, and there was no
television. Can one imagine what the press would have done to Sarah Palin had she exhibited such ignorance
of history. Or Dan Quayle? Joe gets a pass because everybody likes Joe.
Is the Obama Campaign Trying to Keep Joe Biden
Under Wraps? Time Magazine writes that one of the few things that could derail the Barack Obama
campaign is his running mate, so it says the campaign is "hidin' Biden." Karen Tumulty compares
traveling with Joe Biden to "reporting on a politician packaged in shrink-wrap" and that he is "leashed to a
teleprompter even when he is talking in a high school gym that is three-quarters empty."
Brighter and Righter Future. Contrast the elite media's refusal to ask about Gov. Palin's genuine
achievements with their equally clear refusal to pursue Sen. Joe Biden when he has been just plain wrong. The
most comical example was Biden's claim that we could go with him to Katie's restaurant to learn about the problems of
the middle class. Barely any attention was given to the fact that Katie's restaurant closed in 1986. No
elite reporter asked whether Biden had not learned about the middle class since 1986 or whether he is simply out of
touch with reality. Between Biden and Palin, I would take Palin any day.
are hypocrites when it comes to paying taxes. When asked whether he might be questioning the
patriotism of people who don't want higher taxes, [Joe] Biden, as is his wont, took things to the next
rhetorical level. Forget patriotism, insisted Joe, paying higher taxes is a religious obligation.
The man who gave an average of $369 a year to charity over the previous decade fulfills his religious
obligations by cutting a tax check — a check he's required to cut by law.
Conservative Felonies Become Liberal Misdemeanors. Vice president Joe Biden as a presidential
candidate once characterized Barack Obama as "the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and
bright and clean and a nice-looking guy." What exactly did Biden mean by "clean?" The press, of
course, didn't bother to probe too deeply, instead seeming to think that good old Joe Biden was running
off his mouth again.
Joe Biden, 'Practicing Catholic'. Like many
liberals, whether it's a game of constitutional Twister or flexible religious creed, Joe fashions his faith to accommodate his personal beliefs.
Therefore, the vice president and the enthusiastically pro-abortion Barack Obama both feel comfortable calling themselves Christian. Mr.
Biden identifies with Roman Catholicism but doesn't let that identity get in the way of his support of policy that directly contradicts church
teaching on the sanctity of life.
Biden's description of Obama draws scrutiny. His remarks about
Obama, the only African-American serving in the Senate, drew the most scrutiny. "I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who
is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy," Biden said. "I mean, that's a storybook, man."
The Editor says...
CNN is apparently proud to call Obama "African-American," but they are quick to deny that he was born in Africa.

Vice-President Biden debates Congressman Paul Ryan
October 11, 2012
Joe Biden Makes History. For starters, try to imagine being Paul
Ryan last Thursday: a young politician in the hot seat, the eyes of the world pressing upon him, as he tries to make careful and succinct statements in a
most-intense environment, while all along, literally nearly every minute — Biden interrupted Ryan 80-plus times — his opponent smirks,
scoffs, laughs uncontrollably, flaps his arms, and, generally, acts like a petulant child. I ask readers: Could you have endured what Paul Ryan
handled? Given what he was up against, Paul Ryan's debate performance was truly remarkable.
The new Middle East coverup: Biden caught in Syria debate falsehood. [Scroll down] Biden
denied it, declaring: "We are in the process now — and have been for months — in making sure that help, humanitarian aid, as
well as other aid and training is getting to those forces that we believe, the Turks believe, the Jordanians believe, the Saudis believe are the free
forces inside of Syria. That is underway." Well, according to a report in this morning's [10/15/2012] New York Times, Biden's statement
was not true.
Bolton From the Blue. "The attack on Benghazi Sept. 11 was
known to be a terrorist attack within one day. Intelligence officials who briefed members of Congress on Sept. 12 told them so clearly.
In last week's Congressional hearings, State Department officials testified truthfully they were in cell phone contact with the diplomatic staff throughout
the entire episode. Yet they went around for days blaming the attacks on some silly trailer for a video, and Hillary Clinton has been sticking to
that line up until very recently. What Biden said during the debate that the intelligence community had not known the facts right away was blatantly
Green stimulus profiteer comes under
IRS scrutiny. Vice President Biden snickered during last week's debate at the suggestion there was waste, inefficiency or cronyism in the
2009 stimulus bill. If he can stop cackling for long enough, Biden, the self-proclaimed "stimulus sheriff" should sit down with the IRS officials
and the federal inspector general who are investigating a solar company owned by leading Obama donor and subsidy recipient Elon Musk.
What Biden Doesn't Want You to
Know. Current veep Joe Biden certainly sought to play last Thursday's vice-presidential debate for laughs. Embarrassingly for
Democrats, the laughs were mainly his own. [...] His opponent, by contrast, was more like the earnest young parish priest who has been sent to
coax wicked Uncle Joe out of the pub and into the church.
Keith Ablow Diagnoses VP Biden. Fox News' go-to psychiatrist, Keith Ablow, appeared on Fox & Friends Weekend to discuss Joe Biden's debate
performance. Given that Biden's laughter, smirks, and malarkeyisms had been dissected pretty thoroughly by the time Sunday rolled around, Ablow had his
work cut out for him.
The Democratic Party has lost its mind and its
way. [Scroll down] Then there is Joe Biden. As I predicted, his manic behavior at the veep debate won the approval of Dems
despondent over Obama's flop at his debate. Biden's rude laughs, snorts and sneers, combined with hectoring accusations of Paul Ryan, were catnip
for those who see Republicans as unworthy and illegitimate. They actually applaud that Biden's interruptions — more than 100 of
them — prevented any sustained, serious discussion.
Fact Check: Top Ten Worst Lies
by Joe Biden in VP Debate. Once again, Joe Biden lied his way through a Vice Presidential debate — just as he did in his contest
with Sarah Palin in 2008. This time, the media caught a few of Biden's worst "malarkey" moments — as did his opponent, Paul Ryan, when
he could get a word in edgewise.
Laughing at the Issues: The Astounding
Obama/Biden Miscalculation. Both Obama and Biden were dismissive, disrespectful, smug, 'superior,' contemptuous and condescending.
Obama did it with body language, Biden did it with smirks and laughter. Biden's antics last night may make the damaged left happy, but the folks
do not like that kind of juvenile disrespect. Ryan has proven himself a remarkable congressman. Biden has proven himself a fool.
Joe Biden's laugh-filled debate wasn't so funny on national security.
The heat generated by Joe Biden at Thursday night's vice presidential debate cooled into object lessons in the danger of bombast by a top United States
government official. Biden's smirking theatricality while facing Republican Paul Ryan included exasperated putdowns and, at times, broad factual
assertions whose grounding in truth was tenuous. So it goes in skewering an opponent's record.
Sports bar Biden vs. seminar Ryan. The two men looked like
they were taking part in separate discussions. Ryan was speaking in the economics seminar at some obscure think tank. Biden was shouting
answers in the middle of a loud sports bar.
"Disturbed" by Biden's Debate Performance. Former vice president Dick Cheney said he found Vice President Joe Biden's behavior at
the debate Thursday night "very disturbing," adding that it was "the most emotionally unstable debate performance in modern American politics," reports
Ryan's Reason Contrasts Biden's Buffoonery.
Over the next few days, news media and Republicans will share video snippets of Thursday night's vice presidential debate. Voters will get an extra
helping of Vice President Joe Biden chuckling, interrupting, laughing, mugging, smirking and otherwise behaving completely inappropriately. What
Team Obama described as "just Joe being Joe" steadily devolved into Joe just being creepy.
Biden Bombed. You don't win a nationally televised debate by being
rude and obnoxious. You don't win by interrupting your opponent time after time after time or by being a blowhard. You don't win with facial
expressions, especially smirks or fake laughs, or by pretending to be utterly exasperated with what your opponent is saying.
Biden Loses by a Smirk. That smirk was everywhere tonight in the
debate with Paul Ryan — and one finds it impossible to believe that was anything but bad news for the Obama campaign.
A Letter to Joe Biden. Watching Congressman Ryan try to respectfully
engage you in thoughtful discourse was like watching Emily Post try to take a gorilla to tea. You reminded me of people I've had the misfortune of
trying to rationalize with in the past ... people with whom I couldn't fit an uninterrupted word in with a shoe horn, and with whom I eventually abandoned
all hope of ever being able to complete a sentence.
The I-Can't-Post-Mortem For The VP
Debate. Paul Ryan is a better man than me, and it's the reason he came out the winner. I have to admit: I would
have taken the bait. I would have lashed back at both Biden and Raddatz for their arrogance and their overall rude behavior.
Ryan did what I never would have been able to do: he was diplomatic, yet remained firm. He was by all measure Presidential.
Really Watch For Over The Next 72 Hours....
The Benghazi Massacre scandal is really taking root within even the Mainstream Media now — due in great part to Vice President Joe Biden's
oddly phrased throw-the-State Department-under-the-bus remarks during Thursday's debate.
Are Budget Cuts to
Blame for Benghazi Attack, as Biden Suggested? Fact checkers take note: Biden's suggestion that funding cuts may have undermined security
at the consulate has been disproven — by his own administration.
Dr. Strangelaugh. In addition to the vice
president's boorishness, a lot of observers noted that he frequently smiled and chuckled at inappropriate times — even during a discussion
of Iran's pursuit of nuclear weapons. The Republican National Committee quickly put out an ad consisting of nearly a minute of such clips
followed by the caption: "Vice President Biden is laughing ... Are you?"
On Libya, Biden was full of
'malarkey'. Vice President Biden didn't just double down on the administration's story of the attack in Benghazi, Libya.
He emptied the bank account and put the deed to the house on the table. Asked why the administration initially claimed for more than a
week that the incident grew out of a street protest over a YouTube video, Biden said that's what they knew at the time.
about the Benghazi attack.
Intelligence Community Responds to Biden
'Bloviations'. Vice President Joe Biden laughed mirthlessly during the debate as Republican vice presidential candidate Rep. Paul
Ryan (R-Wis.) coolly unbraided the Obama Administration's foreign policy — but the joke is probably on Joe.
Mr. Malarkey, full of
Baloney. BIDEN: Asked about the administration's denial of requests from the U.S. mission to Libya for
increased security prior to the September 11 terrorist attack on the consulate in Benghazi — which resulted
in the assassination of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans — Biden answered, "we weren't
told they wanted more security ... We did not know they wanted more security." FACT: The U.S. Embassy in Libya
requested "an increase in the number of our permanently assigned RSO [Resident Security Officer] staff," as well as "five
TDY DS [Temporary Duty Diplomatic Security] agents for 45-60 days rotations in Benghazi."
Joe Biden's Rude
Debate Laughter: The Joke's on Him. What's so funny, Biden? Why the veep's rude chortles during last night's faceoff
constituted a new low in debate etiquette — and will only hurt his boss.
Biden laughs at tax increases, nuclear war, and other delights. It didn't take the Republican National
Committee long to produce a video compilation of Joe Biden's inappropriate grins and laughter from Thursday night's
vice-presidential debate. The nuclear destruction of Israel is particularly hilarious to the Gaffemaster.
Biden Proposed Social
Security Freeze in 1984. The year was 1984 and Senator Joe Biden was sounding the alarm over Ronald Reagan's budget
deficits. His proposal, which was co-sponsored by Sens. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and Nancy Kassebaum, R-Kan., included a
one-year freeze of all federal spending including Social Security (no cost of living increase) and defense (no pay increase
for the troops).
Control: Obama Campaign Tries to Spin Biden's Bizarre Debate Behavior. The Obama campaign is struggling to respond to
mounting criticism of Vice President Joe Biden's bizarre behavior during last night's debate with Rep. Paul Ryan. Biden not only
interrupted Ryan frequently — 82 times, according to Republican National Committee chair Reince Priebus — but
frequently laughed, smirked, and snorted at serious moments, showing contempt for his opponent and disturbing even friendly observers.
White House Serial Lies About Libya Extend to VP
Debate. Biden made the patently false and outrageous claim that no one in the Obama administration knew that requests for extra security
had been made by our Libyan ambassador, Christopher Stevens, and other members of our consulate in Benghazi. To emphasize his lie, Biden actually
said it twice.
'My Religion Defines My Life'. Vice President Joe Biden said in Thursday night's [10/11/2012] vice presidential debate
that life begins at conception, that he accepts the Catholic Church's position on abortion, and that he believes abortion must be
legal. The Catholic Church's teaching is not only that abortion is always wrong, but also that Catholics in public office
have a grave duty to oppose legalizing it while speaking out clearly against it.
Thoughts on the vice presidential
debate. Joe Biden appealed to Democratic partisans, firing them up by attacking and, even more often, smirking at Paul
Ryan's arguments. But smirks only work when your audience starts off agreeing with you. That would be the case with strong
Democratic partisans, but it's not at all that clear that it appeals to Independents, or to those who are undecided or moveable.
He was trying to dismiss Ryan's arguments as ridiculous, in line with Democratic talking points that no rational person could possibly
agree with him, but I think that only works with people who are already convinced.
BFD: Biden's Failed Debate. This
administration does not lend itself well to the split screen and the VP might very well need psychiatric care. His smile was
frightening. For most of the night Joe Biden looked like the Joker — Nicholson not Ledger. After 3½ years
of Biden's playing the fool, it is hard to remember he was once considered a serious man, a serious politician.
Chris Wallace: I've
Never Seen A Candidate As Disrespectful As Joe Biden Was Tonight. Fox News anchor Chris Wallace hammered Vice President Joe
Biden's excessive smiling and laughing during the debate, saying that he's never seen anyone be so disrespectful in a presidential or vice
presidential debate. And Wallace said that he'd seen most of them — all but the first four in 1960. He called his
Last night, Joe Biden was a three-letter
word: J-E-R-K. I could scarcely even pay attention to whatever lies Biden was telling, so distracting was all his laughing and
interrupting and flailing about. As Christopher Bedford puts it, he swapped out "hope and change" for "interrupt and laugh." He was so
obnoxious, I became convinced he was trying to goad Ryan into taking a swing at him.
adds to the Libya lies. Vice President Joe Biden served up the worst gaffe of any of the 2012 debates, in a moment that will harm not only
him but also his boss. Sure, the obnoxious grimacing and the mannerisms will be mocked relentlessly, but it was his egregious misstatement on
Benghazi that will now plague the Obama-Biden ticket.
Biden Loses It. Biden's demeanor was the story of the
evening: smirking, laughing, snorting, shaking his head. The strategy seems to have been to laugh off America's problems, since the Obama
administration has done nothing to solve them. The debate itself was secondary to the demeanor of Biden. Biden had nothing to run on, so
he decided to distract.
Joe Biden goes off his
meds, but Paul Ryan persevered at sole VP debate. With no real economic record to run on, the old vice president, who has so often
promised hundreds of thousands of new jobs every month, resorted to the Al Gore School of Advanced Debate Histrionics. He laughed often and
loudly. He rolled his eyes. He sighed. He chortled. He shook his head. He leaned back and crossed his arms with exaggerated
exasperation, each time, of course, drawing the cameras' attention off Ryan and onto the emptiness of Biden's performance. Oh, did we mention how
often Biden interrupted?
Biden Only Mentions Obama Once in Debate.
Rep. Paul Ryan won a tough debate on Thursday evening against Vice President Joe Biden — but Biden was not the biggest loser — who
was, once again, President Barack Obama. Biden, in fact, surpassed (low) expectations and played to his Democratic base — though not to
independent voters — by interrupting, smirking, and chuckling.
The Bully vs. the Wonk. So now we know what
Team Obama's comeback plan was following last week's defeat in the Presidential debate. Unleash Joe Biden to interrupt, filibuster, snarl, smirk
and otherwise show contempt for Paul Ryan. The carnival act contributed to the least illuminating presidential or vice presidential debate of our
Joe Biden may not have the last laugh.
Vice President Joe Biden did give the president what he needed last night — a jolt of energy and a strong defense — but his
constant smiling and guffawing could overshadow his performance and turn off undecided voters.
Biden Throws Intel Community Under
Bus. The vice presidential debate opened with a question about the Libyan consulate attack. While that section of the evening
probably didn't figure heavily in forming opinions about whether Vice President Biden or Paul Ryan prevailed, it did provide an interesting twist
in the unfolding tale of administration prevarications about the murders in Benghazi.
[...] was caught fibbing about the U.S. intelligence community. [Scroll down] Perhaps the even bigger problem the Obama campaign
will have in the coming days is that Biden, again just like Gore in 2000, repeatedly exaggerated and mischaracterised for effect. And worse than
Gore — who was caught in a series of small lies in 2000 — Biden was demonstrably untruthful in some big respects. Most
seriously, Biden blamed the intelligence community for the debacle that led to and followed the killing of ambassador Chris Stevens and three other
Americans in last month's terror attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.
Chris Wallace Shocked
By Biden's 'Disrespectful,' 'Openly Contemptuous' Debate Treatment Of Ryan. Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace slammed Vice President
Joe Biden's demeanor at Thursday night's [10/11/2012] vice presidential debate against GOP vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan. Wallace said that
he was shocked by how "openly contemptuous" Biden appeared to act towards Ryan and that he thought Biden's behavior lacked historical precedent.
Biden's debate 'facts' prompt White House
clarifications. While Vice President Biden stressed the importance of "facts" a total of 26 times on the debate stage, those facts
required considerable clarification Friday [10/12/2012] from the White House.
Libya Attack Gains Steam as Issue
in Race for President. The dispute over the episode escalated after Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. said during the debate on
Thursday night that "we weren't told" that Americans in Libya wanted security bolstered, despite Congressional testimony that the administration had
turned down requests. Mitt Romney's campaign on Friday [10/12/2012] accused the vice president of trying "to mislead the American public."
Biden, Obama and the Politics of Personal
Destruction. Throughout the debate, Biden treated Rep. Paul Ryan with contempt. He never responded to any of Ryan's reasoned,
substantive criticisms of Obama's policies. He simply called him a liar, repeatedly. With no justification. He sneered. He
guffawed. And he maligned Ryan for 90 minutes. I watched the debate on Fox News. I suppose the commentators hadn't read
Henninger's article. They were all expressing shock at Biden's nastiness. They didn't seem to recognize that it is part of the Obama
Raddatz favored Biden 40% to Ryan 25%.
A vice presidential debate analysis from a conservative media watchdog group found that debate moderator and ABC correspondent Martha Raddatz asked
19 pro-Obama questions Thursday night, but just 12 skewed Republican, a 40 percent to 25 percent margin. "Any moderator whose
weighted questions favor liberals over conservatives by a 19-12 margin is biased," charged Brent Bozell, president of the Media Research Center.
the Numbers: Moderator Raddatz Attacked Ryan 9 Times, Biden Once. Liberals are more pleased with moderator Martha
Raddatz than conservatives are disappointed. And it's easy to see why. Raddatz allowed Joe Biden to interrupt Paul
Ryan repeatedly during the Vice Presidential debate, and interrupted Ryan herself, while posing questions that were radically in
favor of the Obama team. Ryan overcame Raddatz's bias and won the debate regardless, leaving less for conservatives to
Raddatz Visited Biden at His Residence in
March. White House records reveal that the moderator of last night's vice presidential debate, Martha Raddatz, visited Vice President
Joe Biden at his official residence on March 26, 2012. Raddatz is an employee of ABC News.
Obama: 'Could Not Be Prouder' of Joe Biden.
President Barack Obama says he "could not be prouder" of Vice President Joe Biden's debate performance.
By all means, Barry, let him get started today!
Biden would make 'superb' president. President Barack Obama said Joe Biden would make a "superb" president, but questioned
whether his vice president or potential rival Hillary Clinton would want to endure another campaign
for the White House, a media report Monday said. Obama, in an interview with the New Yorker, said
Biden "has seen the job up close, he knows what the job entails. He understands how to separate
what's really important from what's less important. I think he's got great people skills. He
enjoys politics, and he's got important relationships up on the Hill (in Congress) that would serve him well."
