If you read my periodic columns in The Hill, you know I am a Joe Biden supporter. I believe that the former vice president is a decent, honorable man who possesses the right values for America and cares deeply about all people. I am certain he would restore rationality and decency to the American presidency. But I would write this column regardless of who I was supporting in the 2020 presidential election, because I believe it must be said.


He may be right now, but as more people tune into politics, it will become an issue.

Decent, honorable man who possesses the right values for America and cares deeply about all people? Joe Biden? The guy is a punk and a narcissist. Hair plugs and setting up his family...says it all.

Hey Ed, where's your head? Creepy Joe has many more problems than "his" gaffes. Let's look at his dealings $$$$ during his "stellar" career and his kids making some money on the side...... Thank goodness there isn't a swimming pool on the grounds of the White House on Penn. Ave. so he can't walk around naked like he did at the VP Residence..... SAVED, WE HAVE BEEN SAVED!!!!

Rendell -- being a libterd -- is confused about the difference between cares and matters. Do I care if bidet ever utters a coherent thought? No. Do I think it matters that a President is coherent? Yes.

I CARE! If he can't keep his head now when he has only himself to promote, how will he perform under much greater pressure if he is elected president and has to promote the safety and well-being of his fellow citizens?

WHY Do we let them get away with calling his statements "Gaffs"?!?!?! When any other politician lies and makes racists, offensive and absurd statements the news reports that they "lied and made racists, offensive and absurd statements". They didn't even call Hillary's story about dodging imaginary gunfire getting off a plane a 'Gaff'. But no matter how extreme the statement, with Joe Biden it's reported as 'just a gaff, so you don't care about it".

Through the years, Pennsylvania had tried to introduce gaming to the state starting in the late '60s. Every time there was a referendum Pennsylvania voters would say "no." Those referendums were usually prompted by owners of the Pocono resort hotels and many of those resorts had mob ties. The one thing I found at the time that was mind boggling: The amount of money that was going to Ed Rendell from people associated with DeNaples. DeNaples himself was barred from contributing, but there were people associated with him who out-of-the-blue were kicking in $50,000 to $100,000 to Rendell. From a handful of DeNaples's friends, Rendell got over $600,000. There was clearly a flow of money going to Rendell at the time. When he first ran for Governor, Rendell sold this casino law as a cure for rising real estate taxes. That's how this thing was sold to the public. That was the lure. But my taxes haven't gone down, not significantly anyway. Have yours? It was a scam from Day One. - Philadelphia Inquirer 10-03-2013 Yeah, Ed Rendell knows how the system works. He wants his buddy Plugs to keep things working for Unions and their ilk. Ed Rendell. Another real threat to Americans.

Old Joe is a big turnoff for younger voters. Barely 10% of the few who vote in the primary plan to support him. His fondness for the 1970s, touchy-feely tendencies, and rambling ''speeches'' will send them into the nearest safe space when he visits a college campus.

Here's the summation: I like Joe so no matter what he says or does, it will be forgiven, no matter how dumb or creapy it is. I hate Trump so no matter the good that Trump does for ALL the Country and the truth that Trump is usually correct in what he says no matter how the media squeals about it, Trump is a Bad Man and MUST be removed. This article is irrational babble. However there is one point, after adjustment, that is worth some value. The only ones that care about Trump's supposed mistakes is the media and politicos. The rest of us know he is right on target.

His first wife died in a tragic accident that was her fault. She pulled out into traffic from a side street, which resulted in her death and that of her baby. Joe Biden made the rounds a few years ago talking about how some guy might have "drank his lunch" and hit his wife. The press picked up on it and perpetuated the misinformation. A bald-faced lie and the family of the man who was involved in the accident was totally traumatized by it. Biden is a serial liar and is now showing signs of having an addled brain. Not presidential material.

#19, amen and amen. That drivers name was Curtis C. Dunn. Limestone Road in Hockessin, Delaware, was icy and slick. It was the early 1970’s. Biden referred to the driver who hot his wife (she pulled out in front of him) as a drunk driver. His daughter fought for years to clear his name. Biden used the lie to get sympathy votes. Finally, in the very early 2000s, the news media finally admitted Mr.Dunn was not drinking. A “decent man” does not destroy another man’s reputation based on an out and out lie. Biden is despicable, Mr. Ed. Not decent. Not honorable. Not worthy of any praise. He’s a serial liar.

This reminds me of a dinner table conversation that my parents had many years ago about a cousin who was not shouldering his load in the family business. My mother defended my cousin saying 'But he's such a nice boy', to which my father replied 'We don't need nice boys, we need people who can do the job.' I don't care how decent and nice Biden is, he is not presidential material.

Ah yes, Ed Rendell, one of the worst democrat governors ever suffered by the people of Pennsylvania and we have had more than our share. Naturally he would support Joe Biden because mediocrity and failure are the only tools he has in his own box. It's an outright lie that the people of America do not care about Biden's gaffes. Lack of sharpness in thought and speech will make a disaster of a President and after Barack Obama we will not go through that again. Stuff it, Ed, your bar is way too low.

Rendell is a despicable, two-faced, lying, corrupt politician. The kind of human toad who mocked efforts by the NRA to get Philadelphia to enforce gun laws against criminals. Sleezeball Eddy laughed and sarcastically said he didn't need the NRA's help. Meanwhile his mayoral administration plea bargained down vicious criminals and the victim count continued to increase. He is almost as worthless as biden, but there is no doubt that Rendell is an awful human.

Biden's currently got a lock on the Dem Black vote. Lefty candidates have about zero of that vote. Speaking of Zero, looks like the lefty Dems may have to take a page out of Obama's 2008 South Carolina playbook and smear Biden as a racist. That shameless move was a game changer for Zero.

“I want to be clear—I’m not going nuts,” Joe Biden assured a crowd in New Hampshire last Friday. It was merely the latest in a lifetime of lies this serial fabulist has told. ALL of the available evidence proves that he is clearly going nuts. Perhaps part of it is due to the pressure of being an old white man who’s posing as the standard-bearer of a political party whose sole agenda these days is the extermination and debasement of old white men.

A Parisian shrug at the dalliances of the rich and powerful marks one as sophisticated. An affair carried out with the insouciance of Ilhan Omar and her lover Tim Mynett demonstrates the shameless embrace of not only the protagonists of their minuet à deux but also the nonchalance forced upon the secondary actors, the spouses, and, even more forgettable, the children. Everyone must play along. Adults have needs, many unmet, and what’s wrong with finding amore where one can? Whose business is it?

Today he is living at the home of his parents in Phoenix under conditions he describes as a form of psychological house arrest. There are no visitors, and his few remaining friends rarely call. He feels unable to make new ones, because he fears the reaction of anyone who Googles him. He's 32, unemployed, and perhaps unemployable—"I'm radioactive," as he puts it. And he's still trying to find the right combination of psychotropic medication to quell the recurrent thought that ending his life may be the best way out.

In an interview with TMZ Live on Friday, Buttigieg was asked about the Twitter feud between former Congressman Beto O’Rourke and Texas Republican Representative Briscoe Cain. After O’Rourke told gun owners that “Hell, yes, we’re gonna take your AR-15″ during the Democrat debate on Thursday, Cain dared Beto O’Rourke on Twitter to come and take his AR-15. Buttigieg agreed with O’Rourke that Cain’s comment on Twitter was a “death threat,” and the South Bend mayor admonished Cain for failing to have a more intelligent conversation about gun issues.

Dobbs, a vocal backer of Trump, referred to the GOP senator as a "never Trumper and RINO" in a segment Friday night. He began the segment by touting Trump's electoral chances in 2020 as well as predictions that there won't be a recession next year. "Can you hear the tears falling on the marble floors under those terrible, terrible anti-Trump-ers?" he asked, suggesting more attention should be paid to "this booming Trump economy."

Microsoft attempts to fix the various issues plaguing Windows 10, but the latest patch release only caused more problems in the system. It's been tough going for Microsoft when it comes to Windows 10. Specifically, the patch caused issues in the search option of the Start menu and Taskbar. Microsoft released a patch called KB4515384 on Tuesday, Sept. 10, which was meant to address issues in Cortana and SearchUI functionality causing high CPU spikes and the Desktop Search to cease functioning properly.
