Joe Biden's Veep Delay Underscores a
Campaign and a Candidate in Chaos

Original Article

Posted By: Pluperfect, 8/3/2020 4:39:37 AM

Those of us silly enough to get excited about this stuff suffered a major letdown this weekend when Joe Biden’s campaign announced that Biden would not announce his vice presidential running mate on Saturday, but would instead wait another week or longer. Originally set for August 1, the announcement now won’t come before August 10, according to the New York Post. Biden’s pick is going to be a woman unless Biden breaks his vow from last March, and she’s probably going a “woman of color.” Given the realities of the American political landscape, that’s a short list of potential running mates. Biden had apparently narrowed

He can't announce the VP pick until the powerbrokers pulling his strings tell him who they selected.

Potential VP: I'd like to meet with the Senator and discuss the VP position. Campaign rep: Well, he's not talking with anyone right now. We'll have to get back to you. ... Crickets ... Incompetence and confusion has become the dem brand. That can't be good. They are not sure they actually have a presidential candidate let alone a VP choice. The VP is supposed to be able to replace the President if he becomes incapacitated while in office. It has never happened before he was elected. This is the result of the insanity roiling around the dems today. They had a primary and the actual choice was "none of the above" but instead of accepting that, as dems usually do, they fudged the results and declared a senile person the winner. This seems eerily appropriate for the dem party in its current state.

Replys 1. and 2. just point out how pathetic the liberal mind of the Dems truly is. And in my mind it is actually because they are not only able to reason, but it is really worse than that as the show me again and again that they REFUSE to even try to reason. They have a lot of screws in their illustrious minds that keep searching and searching for the nuts to make them whole, but they never seem to find them. Just my simple mind stating a simple theorem!!!

If he were to win, it would be a dementia patient hand picking the next president. And then that unelected president picking an unelected VP for herself. I think the original method of the person with the second highest vote total being the VP, makes more sense. If we knew Bernie was the one waiting in the wings, it might affect some voters.

Good grief you guys. This isn't some elaborate plot. It's Cheesy Sales 101: Keep your customers on the edge of their seats so they really really really want what you're selling. It's no different than the used car salesman having to go back to his manager 3 or 4 times while you're left waiting for a final price decision. It's one way for Biden to stay front and center in the news for the next few weeks without having to do a single thing or make a single appearance.

Historically, the Veep has been a non-entity. Someone viewed as stable and with no baggage to pull the top guy/gal down. Plus, you don't want people saying: The roles should be reversed --- which many felt with Dole! Also, if the Veep has deep issues, vetting them becomes a huge & expensive problem. That being said, I'm beginning to think the top of the ticket is actually the problem here as he deteriorates quicker than thought. Those of us with experience dealing with relatives and friends who got dementia will tell you it can come on very quick and the person can literally change for the worse in as little as 6 weeks. Some will nose dive almost while you're watching them! Very sad. One minute they are here with you and the next they are in la-la land again.

If you believe Joe Biden is in on the decision you are wrong in the head. Joe Biden at this point is eating his Lucky Charms or Captain Crunch and drooling on himself. The handlers are still searching or have already made their decision but timing is everything for this cluster grab of sleazy democrats. Joe Biden won't be at the finish line trust me.

Hey Joe! Stacey Abrams is on line 1 again! The problem with Befuddled Biden is he cannot remember any conversations he has had or with who, and he cannot make a decision. Biden's choices are five black women. He has to pick a black woman because of today's environment. The biggest lefty among them has no recognition, and doesn't help Biden at all. Three were involved in law enforcement, and most Democrats hate law enforcement. The final choice was Obama's paid liar, and would be a lightening rod. None of them are ready to be President. Biden should never have received the nomination. He isn't up for the job. The problem was all the other Democrat alternatives were worse. They wanted a hardcore lefty progressive, but a majority of Americans don't. The dirty little secret here is the Obama presidency lead the Democrat party into a political dead end.

There is no VP choice he can make that will improve his chances to win the election. The Democrats know that as well as anyone. Therefore, the only thing that seems certain about the election itself is that it will not be orderly and smooth, even though Biden will lose both the majority as well as electoral votes. "Hanging chads" will seem like the good old days compared with the chaos of counting mailed votes, absentee ballots, and military votes-- probably millions of them all together. We know the communist totalitarians are absolutely desperate. But we haven't seen the depths of their desperation, or of their willingness to destroy the country to gain complete power. Buckle up. It's going to be a rough ride through October and beyond. In the midst of all this stand Barr and Durham. In many ways, what happens with Durham and Barr is as crucial as the election itself, or even moreso. We have witnessed the greatest scandal in American history, a complex conspiracy to overturn an election, involving the most powerful agencies of federal government that the Democrats, under Obama, weaponised. As we near the end of Trump's first term, no one-- not one of the cohort of traitors-- has been held accountable and punished. This fact is as stunning and disturbing as any other aspect of the current political madness. Who Biden chooses as VP is a nothing burger in this larger context. If there are no indictments following Durham's report, it almost doesn't matter what happens in the election. The traitors will remain in place, and the rule of law will be dead. The death of the rule of law would be like what Dostoevsky said of the "death of God"-- "Now everything is permitted."

A recent White House memo directs the Pentagon and other executive departments to provide a roadmap by early August for creating a security fleet of icebreaker ships, Fox News reported Monday. The move to acquire icebreaker ships signals Washington’s recognition of the Arctic and Antarctic regions' increasing geopolitical significance, as well as a willingness to stand up to China and Russia. The memo comes at a time when the United States has minimal strategic capabilities in the polar regions—there is not a single U.S. port in the Arctic capable of housing icebreaking ships.

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.

On his way to a hearing last week, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler was in a car accident. Thankfully, the New York pol was unhurt. But the accident caused Mr. Nadler to be an hour late to the hearing. Watching Mr. Nadler during that hearing, which starred Attorney General William Barr, you might think he had hit his head in the accident. But, alas, Mr. Nadler was already that dumb. Even before the accident, he was severely damaged goods.That said, it is always unwise to underestimate Mr. Nadler.

Crucially, President Trump has a lead of 48 percent to 43 percent in the swing states Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin which would put him back in the White House with an electoral college tally of 309 to Biden’s 229. Specifically, in Florida Trump has a 47 to 45 point lead, Minnesota (where the black lives matters protests began) a 46/45 lead, and New Hampshire a 46/43 lead.
