Joe Biden has delayed naming his vice presidential pick by two weeks amid worries the process has become a mess that has pitted women against woman. Biden said last week he would announce his running mate the first week of August but that appears unlikely to happen this week as he hasn't narrowed down his pick amid pressure to name a black woman. But now that's been moved back by two weeks, The Washington Post reported, amid worries from Biden supporters that the process has become 'messier than it should be,' pitting women - and especially black women - against one another.

Comments:

Classic Joe Biden. Waffling, Wobbling, Delaying, Blame Shifting, Indecisive, Confused, and Bad at Optics.

Doesn’t say much for the women he’s considering if they’re squabbling, does it? Is that the quality of a leader? If, God forbid, Biden wins, that veep will be potus within weeks.

Finding a black woman who in comparison makes Biden look intelligent, does not hate America, is non-communist, is not an anti-European-American racist, does not whine about reparations, and can bring in a swing state is next to impossible.

The choice is not Biden's. He has no say in it. The dems are really afraid. Their candidate is a non entity. Their party espouses marxism. They need to cheat to win. Anything else? Yes, they really hate Americans that love their country.

Due to his lack of mental clarity, the media is questioning the need for debates. If this in-fighting keeps up they'll soon be suggesting that the election in November is for the President - the need for a VP pick on the ticket is so yesterday.

The really scary thing is that ther are women that actually are fighting to be Biden's running loser. To think, creatures with so little self esteem that would lower themselves to be associated with Biden could be but one brain cell away from the presidency. Imagine any of this people as president. At least Obambi and Carter will be relieved.

What a bunch of baloney, if it was Biden’s pick, he could make it tomorrow and stop all the “pitting” of leftist and liberal Democrat women against each other, but it is not Biden’s pick, the pick will be made by Obama, with cover from the Democrat Super Delegates.

Pitting women against women? The horror! Actually, that sounds like a normal election process. Is it too much for the poor dears? Is it too much for Debilitated Joe? Not that long ago there were 25 smurfs on stage competing for the dem nomination. Several were women. That's how the process works. Dems are schmucks.

china joe's handlers are holding back on any decision to name the vp. it will be hillary. joe doesn't know what day it is. they are trying to figure out how to break the news to their base that hillary will be the vp pick. just a guess, of course, on my part. one thing to remember: never, ever count hillary out when it comes to a political event. she owes some very powerful people a lot of "favors" and she had better be willing to pay up.

None of the finalists for VP moves Biden closer to victory. Agree that Biden and company are trying to land someone else. Most likely Michelle Obama. That's why they want more time. One has to wonder how much say Biden has in all of this. If his mental faculties are gone, he doesn't have any say. Biden is a figurehead at this point.

Remember how Obama won in race for Senator. The republican who was running against him stepped down at last minute. The only way Biden can win is if Trump for some reason is disqualified. This kind of behavior for politicians is not normal. There is something going on.

I know someone with dementia. Biden is being stubborn and insisting on picking his own VP. His puppet masters need more time to convince him of the pick they want. Have you ever tried to convince someone with dementia that they can no longer drive, or handle their own finances? They will fixate on something and refuse to budge.

Pay attention to what PIAPS is up to. She's gone silent when she SHOULD be out there actively rallying support for Biden, retaking the Senate, keeping the House. But she's not. Why is that. I think it's because she's GOT TO stay far, far away from appearing to have ANY connection with the current Demo quandaries. Her plan is to swoop in as an innocent bird and offer to take over after Joe falls (off camera) and his DR advises he cannot withstand the rigors of campaigning. In order to pull off this scam she absolutely MUST be totally out of the picture right now. There can be NO dots to connect. If you study the woman long enough you understand is that when she goes silent, she's heavily involved in something backstage. And it's always something dangerous.

#37, Barack Obola is not constitutionally eligible to serve as VP, because he served two terms as (ESPN) president. (although the drugged up Chief Judas of the U.S. Supreme Court, John Roberts, could apply his unique brand of legal reasoning, and rule that Barack could serve as VP. He would be joined in the decision by the three witches of washington and the babbling breyer.)

Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden has extended his vice-presidential search by as much as two weeks, intensifying the jockeying and lobbying between allies of the women who hope to join his White House. Even some longtime Biden allies worry the process has become “messier than it should be,” pitting women, especially Black women, against one another. (Snip) The increasing nastiness is fueled by a sense, even among Biden’s closest advisers, that Biden is entering the final phase of the search without a clear favorite. Rather than a traditional “shortlist” of three candidates, people close to the process expect him to

Most media outlets have ignored the revelations, which would be massive headline news if a past or present Republican president was implicated in the allegations. Twitter users jumped on the Epstein-Clinton connection, however, particularly in the context of the media trying to bury the story because it reflects poorly on Clinton specifically and Democrats generally.

Call it an unforced error — a potentially serious backfire. Over there at CNN, former Bill Clinton press secretary Joe Lockhart outs the Democrats’ greatest fear: that Joe Biden will be a disaster in the scheduled presidential debates with President Trump. So Lockhart’s recommendation to Biden? Don’t debate. Lockhart’s stated reason for a Biden refusal to debate is, no kidding, this: Whatever you do, don’t debate Trump. Trump has now made more than 20,000 misleading or false statements according to the Washington Post. It’s a fool’s errand to enter the ring with someone who can’t follow the rules or the truth. Biden will undoubtedly take heat
