Joe Biden Is a Terrible Politician

There probably isn’t a human being alive who mentions the name Barack Obama more often than Joe Biden. At the same time, there probably aren’t two politicians more dissimilar. In addition to being, as Biden put it, the “first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,” Obama has always been personally popular, even when his ideas didn’t go over particularly well. Obama engendered passion and loyalty from his idealistic fans and was rarely baited into saying anything impolitic or damaging. Needless to say, Obama is all the things Biden isn’t.

I'm guessing he wishes that he'd stayed a corrupt Senator, where he was safer.

Challenging peoples' IQs... who does that? Someone who doubts himself, I suspect. Consider his habit of telling people to vote for someone else... it's my guess that it's Biden's way of shutting down an argument he isn't intellectually prepared for. Joe Biden is, simply, a dope.

Biden’s constant bragging about his toughness (Corn POP, getting prosecutor fired, beating up Trump, push-ups) and his so-called intelligence are creepy attempts to bolster his deficiencies. He at least subconsciously knows what a loser he is.

It all depends upon how you define "politician." "Needless to say, Obama is all the things Biden isn’t." Let's see, both are democrats, great liars, corrupt thieves, hate white people, pretend to be something they aren't, couldn't do actual work, constantly brag about themselves. Did I mention great liars? Both live in luxury on other people's money and both are sexual perverts. Funny, I see more similarities than differences.

Joe Biden WISHES he could appoint a running mate during the primaries. There will be a lot of hints and punditry for the next few months about a Biden/Moochelle ticket. Aim being to squelch Bernie without completely losing his supporters. Mooch will go along. She'll be paid to somehow. Sacha on the board of Burisma ? Worked for Chelsea.

The only state that would have elected Biden is Delaware. It is dominated by Democrats who could control or squash opposition, and he brought home the bacon. The few times he's been tested outside of Delaware, he crashed and burned pretty fast. He never was ready for prime time, and never will be. To give Obama credit, he knew what he was doing when he picked Biden.

Most any doctor, who walks into an exam room, with Biden as the patient, will immediately know Joe is a very sick man. Mentally and physically. Doctor should advise him to retire and enjoy what is rest of his life.

Trump’s game-changing
speech of the century

US President Donald Trump’s speech on Tuesday in which he outlined the “Deal of the Century” that has been three years in the making, was nothing short of Earth-shattering. The fact that Israelis across the political spectrum have been arguing over the proposal – called “Peace to Prosperity” – is thus as understandable as it was inevitable. Unfortunately, however, much of the debate has been focused on the details and viability of the plan, rather than on the significance of how Trump presented it, and why his words were revolutionary. In an effort to downplay the momentousness of the event, his left-wing detractors ridiculed his mispronunciation of “al-Aqsa Mosque”

"I did not lie to them." With those words in a declaration and supplemental motion filed Wednesday, former national security adviser Michael Flynn formally asked a federal judge for permission to withdraw his guilty plea for making false statements to two FBI agents in the White House back on Jan. 24, 2017. In a sweeping argument that took aim at the bureau's "outrageous" conduct, Flynn's legal team highlighted a slew of information that has come to light since Flynn's plea -- including that no precise record of Flynn's statements to the agents exists and that the original handwritten FD-302 witness report from the interview is "missing," with subsequent versions later "edited"

Former CIA Director John Brennan is an unabashed member of The Resistance. He and the rest of the Trump-hating left are bitterly clinging to the hope that a miracle will occur in the impeachment trial. Nothing short of a vote in the Senate to affirm that the president is guilty of the charges before them will suffice. Then, of course, President Trump must be removed from office. Reality is slowly setting in for men like Brennan. President Trump will not be voted guilty in the Senate and he will not be removed from office. He will serve out the rest of his term.

Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif, may have been the leading House impeachment manager, but it was Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., who got the last word in a comical moment that quickly went viral on social media. Wrapping up the second day of questioning by the Senate jurors, Chief Justice John Roberts called on the House managers to answer the final question of the evening. "Could you please respond to the answer just given by the president's counsel and provide any other comments the Senate would benefit from hearing before we adjourn for the evening?" Roberts read from the card. Nadler is then seen jumping out of his chair and rushing

A lawyer for Hillary Clinton has finally accepted legal documents in connection with a $50 million defamation lawsuit filed by 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard, the Hawaii congresswoman’s lawyer told Fox News on Thursday night. “We look forward to finally moving forward on the merits” of the case, said Brian Dunne, lead attorney representing Gabbard, who is suing over Clinton indirectly referring to her as a “Russian asset” during an October interview. The development comes after Clinton or her representatives declined to accept the papers in three previous attempts to serve them, Dunne said.

Over the weekend, Washington Post columnist Max Boot had a novel take on President Trump’s impeachment. According to Boot, what Trump said on the phone call with Ukraine’s president was in some ways worse than Andrew Jackson’s forced relocation of Native Americans or FDR’s internment of Japanese Americans during World War II. “Other presidents — from Andrew Jackson with the Trail of Tears during the 1830s, to Franklin D. Roosevelt with the internment of U.S. citizens and noncitizens of Japanese descent during World War II — have trampled our values, but they always had a public purpose and usually had congressional support,” Boot wrote.

The unnamed "whistleblower" who launched the investigation that became the impeachment of President Donald Trump may himself be implicated in the Obama administration's decision to ultimately overlook the conflict of interest involving then-Vice President Joe Biden (administration point man on Ukraine) and his son Hunter, who served on the board of the notoriously corrupt Ukrainian gas firm Burisma. The fact that key questions about the "whistleblower" have been shut down from the start is a serious violation of Trump's due process, according to Patrick Philbin, deputy counsel to the president. Philbin listed three key due process concerns: a lack of authorization, the Democrats not allowing Trump

Mitch McConnell set up the rules for the Senate’s current impeachment hearing so that there would be an early vote on whether to call witnesses, or simply proceed to an up or down vote on impeachment. Either way, the result is foreordained, just as the impeachment process itself was foreordained when the Democrats captured the House in 2018. The president will be exonerated. The vote on whether to proceed with witnesses apparently will take place on Friday. I assume that McConnell thought it would be easy to get 51 votes in favor of terminating the Senate proceeding, but John Bolton’s ill-timed and ill-advised tell-all book

House impeachment manager Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) repeatedly told the Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump on Wednesday night that the House case was “proven beyond any doubt at all.”Nadler’s odd, and repeated, claim seemed to undermine claims by Democrats that they needed to see more witnesses and documents in the trial. The House Judiciary Committee chairman played an unusually understated role in the first day of the question-and-answer session in the Senate.

Chief Justice John Roberts doesn't seem to have the judicial acumen of a traffic court judge. (snip) If the chief justice had instructed the House managers to stop committing perjury, then perhaps their posturing in calling witnesses to get at the truth may have been be more credible. If there is no penalty for perjury, then why have any witnesses? So far, this entire impeachment is just more D.C. political blustering and fake news reporting theater of the absurd that Americans hate at so many levels.

Abrams — who rose to national prominence after failing to win the 2018 Georgia gubernatorial contest and then refusing to recognize the legitimacy of the outcome — spoke to FiveThirtyEight about a slate of topics, including her presidential ambitions. The former Georgia House minority leader said she “absolutely” believes a black woman could be elected president by 2040, and she believes that woman to be her. “Yes, I do,” Abrams said when asked if she believed the country would elect her as president within the next 20 years. “That’s my plan,

"We have the best experts anywhere in the world, and they are on top of it 24/7!" Who are these experts? They're largely the same sorts of white men (and a couple women on the sidelines) who've dominated the Trump administration from the very beginning.

Pop icon, Constitutional scholar, and noted political pundit Barbra Streisand says she sees in Adam Schiff (D-CA), the face of the Democrat impeachment campaign against President Donald Trump, a man who “would make a great president. “Adam Schiff is so impressive. His knowledge of the law… his passion… his articulateness. His sincerity!” Barbra Streisand said, pouring praise on the partisan lawmaker. “He speaks the truth and would make a great president.” (Tweet) Babs may want to pomp the breaks because as it stands, only 27 percent of America has a positive opinion of Rep.

The Senate Friday voted to usher in the end of President Trump’s impeachment trial by rejecting a motion to call for additional witnesses and documents. Two Republicans joined 47 Democrats to vote in favor of calling for the additional evidence. The motion fell short by two votes, ending the case House Impeachment managers have been presenting for the past two weeks. The Senate now moves into the final phase of the trial, which could last a few days longer to allow senators to deliberate and give speeches before holding final votes.
