Here’s Why It Won’t Be Either Biden or Bernie

Original Article

Posted By: DaddyO, 3/7/2020 3:56:54 PM

Within a mere week, and apparently magically, the Democrat presidential primary race is down to two really old white guys (although a part-Samoan woman is still hanging on for some unknown reason since she hasn’t got a chance in hell). Except I don’t believe in magic – or coincidence, for that matter – when it comes to politics. Everything happens for a reason and, in the case of Democrats in particular, for personal or party gain (or both). Democrat operatives have been bleating the conventional wisdom throughout the Democrat-media echo chamber that Biden has “pulled off one of the most spectacular turn-arounds in presidential primary history,”

Comments:

Hint: Biden "forced" to withdraw after winning the most delegates due to declining health, either mental or physical.

What will finish off any of the Dem potential nominees is the Party's identity politics mania. There is no way they can satisfy all of these disparate groups

Plausible, except for the Deval Patrick, Eric Holder and (God help us) Michelle Obama references. Just call off the election and be done with it.

I smell Romney in the wind. Just a hunch. But what do i know. He can pick off the Rep never Trumpers and snag a bunch of democrats because he pulled a McCain with him impeachment vote. Could be Romney Flake and the surprise Dem ticket.

The flaw with this article's reasoning is that as soon as Biden drops out due medical or senility reason, what stops Bernie from jumping back in. It is unlikely he will stay out. Almost two thirds of delegates are yet to be elected. Bernie looks more likely.

Author makes a lot of very valid points. And, never underestimate Hillary Clinton's ambition. Having avoided the circular firing squad of the primary debates as well as a physically exhausting campaign would be smart moves for the dragon lady.

There is no way that the Democrats could go with a Biden-Romney or a Biden-Flake ticket as Bernie’s crew would go nuts, and both Romney and Flake are not stable trustworthy politicians, even though it appears that Romney at the moment is trying to ride shotgun for the Bidens as far as Ukraine corruption is concerned, by ensuring that any Senate investigation of the Bidens remains behind closed doors. The never-Trumpers will not vote for Trump anyway so there is nothing for the Democrats to gain by going with Romney or Flake.

The writer makes some very interesting points. Maybe this is why Disney CEO Bob Iger resigned? At the top of his game; too young to retire. Near the end of his piece, the writer seems to hint at a Kerry-Hillary duo. The double yuck factor is just too heavy for that...

Barack Obama is the leader of the Democrat Party not Hillary Clinton, after his comments the other day referring to his Monica affair the Democrats know that Bill Clinton will never again live in the White House. Remember back at the get-go Obama’s candidate was and most likely still is the very liberal Devil Patrick who is out of the same Chicago political stable as Obama. If Biden is handed the nomination by Obama and the Super Delegates look for Obama to force Patrick on Biden in return for Obama’s support in the run-up to the general election. If Biden were thereafter elected, after one check up from the neck up Biden would be out, and Patrick who could never be elected President this year in his own rite would assume the Presidency, and would then still be eligible as the incumbent President to run for re-election in 2024 and 2028. But first the Democrat ticket must defeat President Trump in the November election.

Any word without vowels is odd, and essentially unpronouncable without instruction on what to do with that set of letters. Sorry if pointing out that the name has no vowels bothers you, #11, I was not particularly mocking, but it is certainly odd and I have no idea how I would even start to pronounce it without him pronouncing it for me. It definitely violates all English rules of phonics, leaves us high and dry.

I agree with # 8. These shadowy powers-that-be, lurking in the back rooms and at the DNC have no real ability to re-design the race at this point. Unless the convention is a complete catastrophe (not likely, IMO) the nominee will be one of the two old codgers, most likely Biden. Alternative scenarios are fun to conjure up, but are usually not realistic.

The real story here is that the Democrats have pandered to radicals of every ilk, and they are trying to take over the Democratic party. They have coalesced under Bernie Sanders. The Democrats denied Bernie in 2016, and will do the same in 2020. Their nominee will be Joe Biden. It will be interesting who gets selected as VP. Biden won't be forced out, but his health will be an issue. Regardless, don't see how the Democrats beat Trump and the Democrats know it. That's why the Democrats tried to get Trump impeached. He fights back, unlike the Bushes, McCain, and Romney. The Democrats are probably already looking ahead to 2024 where there will be no incumbent.

Assume (unlikely) that there is a dem presidential sub called in at the convention. Do you really think that the dems are going to blindly follow such a candidate. The Bernie Bros are unlikely to, even if Bernie endorses them. If it is someone who has done NO campaigning for the presidency, I doubt support will be high. Dragging Hillary out of the woods with a toxic BJ is NOT going to play well. Sure, many dems will do ANYTHING to get rid of Trump. But there are many who will not blindly party dictats and are fed up with dem establishment dirty dealings. If Biden is swept aside for "health" reasons, for example, WHY was his candidacy allowed to go so far when there were clear signs of problems. If Bernie is not the backup candidate, WHY? If Holder, for example, is proposed, WHY didn't he run in the primaries? Why would largely ignored Deval Patrick be a viable choice. Why would ANY of the failed dem candidates be a good choice? The establishment "reason" might be that they just wanted to push the hard Left out of the way. But they can't say that and no matter WHAT they do say, it will sound fake. The best thing the dem establishment might do is support Biden knowing he will be blown away by Trump. After the election, the establishment will have played by the rules (kind of) and they can hang the loss around the neck of the Left. Then they can rebuild as they did after Mondale. Yes, it will be a huge setback as Trump continues to tear apart Progressivism but the dem party could survive. Doing almost anything else may not only lose the election but could also destroy the party as well. Are the dems smart enough to do the smart thing? Naaaah.

It has to be either Quid Pro Joe or Comrade Bunny. Some Johnny Come Lately who never campaigned can't just be handed the dim nomination. I hate both of them. But Comrade Sanders would destroy America by eliminating our military and use the money to enact communism. Plugs would have enough sense to not leave us without our Armed Forces. He's dumb and a crook. But not crazy. Well not as crazy Bullschiff Bunny.

Clyburn has been Doing some poker tells lately. Prior to the Biden endorsement he alluded to Sanders leading the ticket would be a burden on the party and put the down ticket in jeopardy. Then the Biden endorsement. Clyburn after Biden South Caroline victory made it clear he felt Biden's campaign needed a retooling. Clyburn, March 5 that he wanted the Democrat nominee for vice president to be a person of color, and that he already had a candidate in mind for the bottom half of a Biden ticket. Biden is a political hack. He’ll do what the party wants. He’ll get the nomination. They need him to get the traditional Dem base out to vote, His campaign will be retooled after the nomination and a women of color will be in the ticket.

Watching the Brexit debacle from afar, it seemed impossible to understand how the Labour Party could know full well it needed to win a national election in order to prevent an irreversible setback, yet harness itself to Jeremy Corbyn, whose toxic leadership made victory nearly impossible. The rise of Bernie Sanders, at a moment when Donald Trump is accelerating his war on the rule of law, is retroactively illuminating. A liberal party drifting helplessly along as a small radical cabal steers it toward likely catastrophe? I didn’t think it could happen here.

You could say the same of the movie itself. We can debate the importance of final chapters, whether they really have, or should have, the power to elevate or invalidate everything that came before them—and though the ninth episode in this generation-spanning story has been advertised with the promise that “The Saga Will End,” that’s a promise that has been made and broken before.

Bill being Bill, there will be no real apology coming, just some typical and expected minimizing. “But whatever,” he says. “What I did was bad, but it wasn’t like — how can I think about the most stupid thing I could do and do it.” This is from a new documentary on Hillary, a for-hire job meant to canonize her and the would-be Clinton dynasty.

With Joe Biden regaining his position as the Democratic front runner, the scrutiny of him by the right has renewed.

While Biden may represent a larger threat to Trump in a general election, he’s still a ripe target for political ridicule and the sights are starting to turn on one specific thing.

Now that the once-sprawling field of Democrats seeking the presidency has become a two-man race, many in the party are breathing a sigh of relief. All the more so because Joe Biden is the clear front-runner and the dreaded Bernie Sanders looks to be fading. So it’s all set. Biden will be the nominee and give the party a solid chance of scoring a November trifecta: beating President Trump, taking the Senate and holding the House. Count me as skeptical. Instead of a smooth ride, it’s more likely that the Dems’ desperate search for a Trump slayer will hit more turbulence and an alternative to Biden still could be necessary.
