‘There’s no playbook for this’:
Biden trapped in campaign limbo

Original Article

Joe Biden reached a new and heady milestone when he shellacked Bernie Sanders in Florida, Illinois and Arizona to become the de facto Democratic nominee for president. But there was no soaring speech to acknowledge the moment. He never took the stage amid a sea of Biden signs or before an adoring crowd on national television. Biden was instead stuck in a makeshift studio in his Delaware home, webcasting his remarks with a low-quality personal computer camera against a straight-out-of-YouTube black backdrop and two American flags. He warned about the coronavirus contagion. He offered an olive branch to Bernie Sanders. Then, despite two consecutive weeks of smashing victories,

The reality of Uncle Joe's candidacy is that dems will vote for a pumpkin over Bernie; and they are. The Chinese virus emergency is sucking the remaining air out of the dead end dem campaign. In some ways that's good because Joe is embarrassing in public and it might save him some humiliation; although he seems somewhat clueless about his foolishness, making it even worse. "His momentum has effectively been stopped cold." "He’s only in a predicament to the degree he chooses to view himself in one,” “He needs to offer an alternative and offer a running play-by-play critique of the failings of this administration.” All this shows that many dem strategists don't "get it" and are trying to apply typical campaign strategy in an extremely abnormal situation. "The first step: installing a better video camera in Biden’s house" This is going to be hilarious. Biden, who is a fossilized dinosaur, learned how to run in personal appearance settings. We have clearly seen how unable he is to handle change. Uncle Joe is going to come off as a bad Max Headroom copy. The reality is, unless Trump does something monumentally horrible, he will be reelected. The situation will prevent the dems from moving forward and they are still fractured, short of cash, and many of their supporters are despondent. Even if things were normal, this would be very hard to get over. With a candidate like the malfunctioning Joebot, almost impossible. WIll they be able to have a convention safely? If not, it could be a lackluster finish to an painful primary season. The only silver lining for the delusional dems is that they will be able to blame their failure on the virus. That may allow them to drag their zombie party forward for a while rather then having it completely implode after the elections. The points they propose in this article show how delusional they are. Unfortunately, there is a chunk of the voters just as unbalanced.

Biden's mind is in limbo, too. After that speech where he just stood there with a blank look until his wife came to lead him away shows he is not fit to be president of anything.

It's delicious to consider that Biden has two kinds of people with him: old-time dead-enders who are trying to regain past glories and never-weres like Symone Sanders aka the Hungry Hungry Hippo. Both sets were relying strictly on pro forma politics. The podium shot, the ad with candidate in shirtsleeves, etc. Slogans and false accusations have absolutely no currency now. Their candidate can't think for himself and they have no substantive ideas whatsoever.

At a time when none of us knows what the next 24 hours will bring, when the kids can go back to school, whether we'll have enough food for the next month, much less whether we'll have a job, Politico focuses on the poisonous effort to put relevancy into an irrelevant El CID candidate. (After death, El Cid was arrayed in armor and placed on his horse to lead his troops into one last battle.) Right now, the only relevant Democrat is Cuomo, who gets along with Trump. for now anyway. The contrast won't be between Biden and Trump but between Biden and Cuomo. That can't be good for either Biden or rhe Democrats.

Right now Cuomo is doing a good job, especially in leashing De Blasio, who if he could would put NYC under martial law. But in his hour long Mussolini-like ramblings on the NY C19 situation, he shows how tiresome he is. Clearly he is angling, as he has all along, for a presidential nod from the Dem party bosses when Biden is forced to withdraw doe to his cognitive impairment. Saving grace? Cuomo on a national stage would even encourage Dems to get out the rusty razor blades.

Back when I was a karate instructor i had a student who would occasionally just stop and stare off into space for 30-40 seconds. I told his mother that I thought he might be having seizures and she should consult a doctor. Sure enough, he was. I think that’s what’s happening to OldJoe and is why he just stood there at the end of his little video speech. One more issue and one more reason he should be at the nursing home instead of campaigning for anything at all.

A playbook won’t help Biden much when he can’t even follow a teleprompter. Anytime Obama went off script he became stuttering and incoherent. Biden can’t remember which State he’s in. The fact that the DNC stuck themselves with an old white guy clearly suffering from either Alzheimers or dementia says a lot about their talent pool. Nice to know they have a ready excuse for why he went down in flames.

I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news here but unfortunately nobody on the left has SEEN the videos of vacant, oblivious, blank Biden. The media and Demos are carefully protecting him. How do voters know about what they don't know about? Hillary is just salivating, thinking she'll rush in at the last minute to save the day. She's an opportunist, above all. And in HER mind, the stars seem to have aligned for her. Always, ALWAYS pay attention to where she is and what she's doing. When she's quiet, beware. .

politico seems to be desperate as they try to pimp out old Jo Biden. old Jo is politically irrelevant - sort of a modern day Wendell Wilkie, 1940 era republican nominee for President, running against FDR. Wilkie was nominated at the republican convention on the 6th ballot, I believe. He then disappeared, forever. So will Politico.

Smoke & mirrors. After the convention eliminates Bernie and then Joe becomes the standard bearer for his rotten party, he can be easily replaced between the convention and the election by party leaders for the 50 states meeting in a mini-convention. No delegates --- and the bigger states (NY, California, Illinois, etc) rule that roost. Thus, if Old Joe gets sick (?) or just needs to be replaced because he's dotty, anyone can be substituted. Yes, anyone. That means look for Andy Cuomo or Gavin Newsom to take a quick short-cut end run and come up as Trump's opponent. No fuss and plenty of Bloomberg money as long as he's promised Secretary of State or Treasury. Some people might say that this was the master plan all along!

Poor Joe. Pressing the flesh is now limited to touching the computer screen - somewhat a political equivalent to getting healed by a TV preacher offering his electronic audience the chance to 'hold your hand up to the TV screen'. Hey! Maybe Joe can sell 'holy' handkerchiefs that he's touched (and then sterilized) - for only a modest fee plus shipping and handling. Wear it on your head and imagine Uncle Joe sniffing your hair. It could work.

The leftist and liberal Democrats, and especially Joseph Biden, are limited now to Monday morning quarterbacking and plagiarizing Trump Administration Plans to manage the Chinese corona crisis, by falsely calling them the Democrat Plan, while adding on a lot of government “pork” spending to Democrat supporting entities and individuals. In those respects the Democrats are bound to go overboard on the crisis and even attempt to protect China using fraudulent racism and xenophobic claims as their basis. President Trump and the Republicans should keep following their plans and when appropriate hit back at Democrat propaganda as the crisis plays out. When the crisis is over the Democrats will have given Trump and the Republicans a huge amount of political ammunition.

Naiive author of the article, or the article is just stagecraft.

Up Schiff's Creek with a fried brain.....not a great place to be. Joke Biden is hopeless. If you wondered why Fox has given hours and hours for Cuomo to ramble on, my take is that Paul Ryan, now at the top of Fox News, is working to get Cuomo in as the replacement candidate for Biden. Biden will suddenly discover that he has 'health problems' and drop out, and the powers that be will pick Cuomo by acclimation. Just watch.

Can you even begin to imagine what would happen if Biden were president at this time? I can. He'd hand everything off to the 'experts' and 'scientists' and let them make the decisions. Since 'experts' and 'scientists' are not necessarily great leaders or great administrators we would have interagency battles and bureaucratic maneuvering. The problems would fester and be magnified. Many would lose their lives unnecessarily. The democrats are reaping the whirlwind. They are about to do one of two things--nominate a candidate who is clearly mentally impaired or steal the nomination from him. Grabbing Cuomo at the last minute is probably a fool's errand. Cuomo just may be smart enough to keep his powder dry, wait for better times and stomach the Trump landslide.

Like the cheap chocolate Easter eggs you sometimes got as a child (HEY! It's hollow! There's nothing IN it!!) Biden was shown for the phony he is. Anger and inappropriate aggression (it is absolutely ridiculous for a man his age to keep challenging people to fights) are not substitutes for leadership. Biden is a hollow Easter egg.

After this national crisis I don't think Biden will be the nominee. Democrats are giddy over Andy Cuomo whose staff even think he is a bad guy. But, if Andy keeps up his 11am DST briefings (auditions) I think he will emerge as their new saviour. Bloomberg will back him as will Soros. And Andy, he is tasting the power already. The NYS Legislature weeks ago passed legislation that gave him dictatorial powers which is the last thing a guy like him should be given, crisis or no crisis. He's made more of a shambles out of NY than it already was. He happily signed the infanticide bill as well as this awful get out of jail free card so called bail reform Act. He is surrounded by scandal and is a disaster. And he is Bernie Sanders with a better NY accent. But in these times, he certainly looks better than Biden. Just look at the picture of Biden in the article. He has a very disconcerting blank stare. Imagine him trying to give a daily briefing in a crisis? No Andrew is emerging and Trump will not so easily swat him away. After this crisis is over, the political scene is going to get even uglier. Hang on to your hats.

I shudder to think where we would be if the liberals/progressives/democrats were in charge of our response to the attack of the corona-virus were left to them.. I don't know if enough people are watching, but I personally am sure that listening to them do nothing but criticize the man and men who ARE in charge, I can only hold these repulsive leftists such as Schumer and his gang in total contempt. They are all a part of what I call the "carp and whine" crew. They sit and wait for the people, President Trump and his cabinet to do something, then launch themselves into their criticisms, piles of schumer that they are, and go on campaigning for the 2020 elections.

President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act into law a decade ago on March 23, 2010, promising an era of affordable healthcare. Instead, for the past decade, insurance premiums have skyrocketed while coverage options have declined. Clearly, this anniversary is no cause for celebration. Proponents of Obamacare point to increased rates of insurance coverage as proof the law achieved its goals. They fail to mention these gains were largely the result of Obamacare expanding Medicaid to cover nearly 15 million additional enrollees. They also leave out the fact that Medicaid expansion initially cost more than $6,300 per enrollee — and that the program

Aaron Ginn is a Silicon Valley technologist who has written for Breitbart, TechCrunch, TheNextWeb, and Townhall. Ginn has published a piece at Medium about the Wuhan coronavirus. It’s called “Evidence over hysteria — COVID-19.” Ginn is not a scientist or a doctor, but he seems like a capable numbers cruncher and analyst. Moreover, he marshals views of medical and health professionals. I think his piece is worthy of your consideration. However, as with just about everything written on this subject, it should not be considered definitive. At this point, some level of skepticism is almost always in order.

Tonya McKinley was last seen ringing in 1985 at a restaurant. By the morning, the 23-year-old woman was found strangled and sexually assaulted on the side of the road, police said.

It’s one of the key questions as Americans wait out the coronavirus outbreak at home: How long will my stash of toilet paper last? A new website called “How much toilet paper?” claims it can roll out an answer for you. Simply set the top bar to how many rolls you currently have, then set the second bar to how many average bathroom visits you make per day – and the website’s calculator does the rest. If you have a standard package of four rolls, for example, the website says that will last you 32 days if you make an average of two bathroom visits per day.

Yesterday, amid the ongoing economic and social disruptions caused by the coronavirus, rising numbers of infections and deaths globally, and widespread closures of schools and other extreme measures imposed across the country, the mainstream media decided we should have a national debate about whether it’s racist for President Trump to call it the “Chinese virus.” In what can only be described as a moment of unconscious self-parody, the media pretended not to understand why Trump would refer to the virus in geographic terms—as if they’d never heard of the Spanish Flu, West Nile Virus, Ebola, Zika, Lyme Disease, or the many other diseases named for their places of origin.

Crises have a way of shocking us out of complacency to consider how fragile and vulnerable civilization still is, and always will be. In the short run, that means retreating to humanity’s basic survival impulses and taking a triage approach to our priorities. In the long run, however, COVID-19 should prompt some reflection on our vulnerabilities and how to limit them in the future. One in particular bears rethinking: our ever-growing urban concentration and dependence on high-density, centrally managed mass transit. The relentless march of urbanization, in the United States and around the world, has been coming for a long time.

Vice President Biden is due Monday to begin giving briefings on the coronavirus crisis so as to appear like a shadow president. There’s just one problem.

It seems the doughty Democratic governor of New York has emerged as a star, while Mr. Biden is still getting a studio set up in his home.

He has been out there every day of late with detailed updates, wise asides, references to his time in Washington, and commentary on the Constitution.

Joe Biden reached a new and heady milestone when he shellacked Bernie Sanders in Florida, Illinois and Arizona to become the de facto Democratic nominee for president.

He warned about the coronavirus contagion. He offered an olive branch to Bernie Sanders. Then, despite two consecutive weeks of smashing victories,
