Joe Biden’s presidential hopes are over. But he’s still sissy fighting.
With Biden’s campaign crashing, he must now fight down. In politics, it is said that one should never fight down. It gives the underdog credibility.
So when Joe Biden decided to spar with Sen. (D-MA) Elizabeth Warren, he might as well have announced that his campaign is over.
The former vice president decided to fight Warren based on revelations from a recently published New York Times poll. The poll found that many people see Warren as an elitist.
Writing on the crowdsourced content site, Medium, Biden called Warren “condescending,” Further, he labeled her approach an “angry unyielding viewpoint.”
“Some call it the ‘my way or the highway’ approach to politics, but it’s worse than that. It’s condescending to the millions of Democrats who have a different view. It’s representative of an elitism that working and middle-class people do not share: ‘We know best; you know nothing.’ ‘If you were only as smart as I am you would agree with me.’ This is no way to get anything done.”
There goes everybody’s “Uncle Joe”. Mr Colloquial. Ordinary, Average Joe.
Perhaps Biden thinks his “Average Joe” act will make people forget about his crooked deal involving his crackhead son Hunter?
As for Biden’s attack on Warren, he repeated the comments at a fundraiser in Pittsburgh. And according to one source, Biden added some off-the-cuff remarks responding to Warren’s assertion recently that Biden is running in the “wrong presidential primary.”
Warren made the comments, as she poked at Biden’s insistence on adopting a more moderate view of things like health care and student loan forgiveness than Warren and the rest of the party’s progressive wing.
In other words, these two expose yet another chasm within the Democratic Party. So let’s see how long it takes for Warren to widen her criticism of Biden to the deals involving his son?
I interrupt this message with an urgent question for Democrats.
Where are the polls comparing candidates in a head-to-head matchup against President Trump?
Back to the message…
Biden’s and Warren’s attacks on one another are completely unnecessary. In case you’ve missed it, the Democratic Party wants neither of these two old Leftist farts. With the primary in full swing and multiple debates having taken place, Democrats still consider entering the race.
It seems that despite Democrats dropping out of the race, the number continues to grow. Speculation abounds on whether Hillary Clinton will try for a third ass-kicking. And while some Democrats delight at the prospect, still another Leftist causes the Chris Matthews tingle.
Former mayor of New York, Michael Bloomberg is said to be making overtures. Keep in mind, Bloomberg said he would not run a few months back. Why weren’t Democrats adamant that Bloomberg enter the race early on? Was Joe Biden supposed to be that formidable? Was it “his time”?
But Bloomberg and Clinton are not the only Democrats people say are speculating a run, as the name of Eric Holder has come up again. Like Bloomberg, Holder removed himself a while back.
In the Washington Post, Holder stated unequivocally, “I will not run for president in 2020.” He added, “With the depth and diversity of the current field of candidates (and those who may still join), we will have a host of good options.”
But if the rumors are true, that message didn’t age well. Because now Holder apparently doesn’t have much faith in Biden, Warren, or any of the other Leftists stooges challenging Trump.
Frankly, I think the media is polling on behalf of Democrats to see if they can find more suitable replacements for the ass-kicking that’s coming to whomever the Democrats pick. And the notion that I’m right suggests Democrats know their problems and their fate.
