When former President Obama delivered his convention speech from Philadelphia last week, it raised some questions for Democrats about Joe Biden’s lack of a travel schedule. Biden has been effectively sidelined because of the coronavirus pandemic, keeping his public appearances largely confined to his hometown of Wilmington, Del., where he also ended up accepting his party’s nomination last week. “I think a lot of people thought, ‘If Obama can get on a plane and travel, why can't Biden?’" said one Democratic strategist, who pointed to the former president’s trip from Massachusetts to Philadelphia for his prime-time address. “I know we

Comments:

Biden poked his head out and said 'Six more weeks of staying in my bunker''. Democrat intelligentsia are just now realizing this could be a problem for a presidential candidate.

He has a schedule.....he just cant remember where he left it. /S/ Lets be honest......he, and everyone else knows that the more he's in public, the more opportunities he has to foul it up. Besides, according to the polls, he's leading by double didgets.

WOW! Remember Hillary falling over last year and being dragged into her car like a rag doll? Now this for the RATS! It's a sign of who they really are! Evil, Corrupt, Sick and Deranged. Compare that to the RNC patriotic positive view of America and TrumpusMagnicant and the Republicans can't lose in November. Even with all the fraud the DNC is planning! It will be a Mondale style smack down of epic proportions!

Democrats are sure dumb. The china virus was never the reason for Biden hiding, anyone with half a brain knew that.

Carter hid in the Rose Garden in 1980, saying the Iran hostage crisis required his constant attention. He said he was too busy to debate Reagan. Eventually people tired of the scam. Same thing here.

No longer capable of "freestyle" interactions. I will bet $100 that there will be no debates. He is incapable of doing it. The virus excuse is WAY lame, not anything like true.

If he wins, how is he going to fly to Europe to meet with the other heads of state? How will he remember who he is talking to and what country he is in? This is crazy!

Biden will debate via teleconference. Since he will be given all questions in advance, his handlers will have him tape all answers so that he or more likely Jill, simply has to select the appropeiatw response. Since these prerecorded responses can’t allow for follow ups, the networks will not permit a back and forth exchange. Question, answer then next question. If you think your job is difficult, think of what Biden’s handlers will have to go through in order to record coherent responses. This long and tedious task is why Biden (D for Demetria) can’t travel.

"Biden's lack of a travel plan worries some dems"? They should be more worried if he announced a major travel itinerary. At least this way they know his handlers are keeping Captain Dementia under wraps.

If Biden wants to "teleconference " debates, Trump should offer show up to debate in Biden's basement in person.

Chances are the big surprise will be laid on America a day of so before the first debate is scheduled when the nation will be told that Biden has tested positive for COVID and must be quarantined in an extended process that will last until after the date the last debate is scheduled. Then we will be told that Biden has miraculously recovered and is ready to be elected.

No Republican presidential candidate has carried Nevada since George W. Bush did in 2004. But Democrats are concerned that could change this year, Democratic state officials told Newsweek. "Nevada absolutely could be the Michigan of 2020," Las Vegas veteran Democratic strategist Andres Ramirez said. "I am certainly not convinced that Nevada is a slam dunk for the Biden team. I am certainly not convinced that we know where this is going to go at this moment."

SAN DIEGO — Arson is suspected as the cause of a July 12 fire that left extensive damage to the USS Bonhomme Richard and a U.S. Navy sailor is being questioned as a potential suspect, a senior defense official said Wednesday. The sailor was being questioned but was not detained and defense department leaders were notified of the development, the official said. The official, with knowledge of the investigation, spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity to provide details not yet made public.

MINNEAPOLIS — The Minneapolis mayor imposed a curfew Wednesday night and requested National Guard help after unrest that included violence and store looting broke out downtown following what authorities said was misinformation about the suicide death of a Black homicide suspect. Mayor Jacob Frey said details of the curfew which went into effect immediately were still being worked out. Frey said during a news conference Wednesday night that he and Gov. Tim Walz had been in contact to address the situation. Frey said bolstering enforcement was an effort to “stay ahead of the game as much as possible." “What we’re

KENOSHA, Wis. — Downtown buildings set ablaze by arsonists were still smoldering from the night before when Kirk Ingram started to paint an angel on his boarded-up store front. Ingram, a Democrat who runs a massage therapy business, said the war-zone images of his city on TV — armed people running through the streets, burned cars and broken windows — were bolstering President Donald Trump's get-tough message. Maybe a few uplifting murals could start to tell a different story about Kenosha, Ingram said Wednesday. Trump has attempted to frame the violent unrest in the wake of Jacob Blake’s shooting as

St. Nicholas of Tolentine Church in the Bronx, New York was founded in 1905 as an Irish-Catholic refuge for a largely immigrant population in search of a spiritual home. Today, it remains a haven for immigrants from Central and South America and Southeast Asia. Over 30 years ago, as an Augustinian priest, I served as the pastor of this urban parish and had the chance to experience the daily hospitality and inclusion that had been seamlessly offered to and embraced by the church's newest arrivals. In many ways, there was nothing so remarkable about this. Then and now, the biblical

I can’t remember a wildcat strike ever happening by a pro sports team, let alone an entire league, let alone during the playoffs. My guess is that it’ll alienate more people than it’ll win over, but alienation never lasts very long in sports. A million fans will vow today that they’ll never watch the NBA again and most will be back next week, or at least for the Finals. And everyone who isn’t will be back next season. The Milwaukee Bucks violated the collective bargaining agreement with the league when they decided to protest by not playing today’s game against the Orlando Magic.

When the Supreme Court resolved the 2000 presidential election in favor of George W. Bush, former Vice President Al Gore conceded defeat — something he doesn't believe President Trump will do if he loses to Joe Biden in the Nov. 3 election. In an interview with Reuters on Tuesday, Gore, a Democrat who served as Bill Clinton's vice president, accused Trump of "attempting to put his knee on the neck of democracy" by attacking mail-in ballots and absentee voting. “He seems to have no compunctions at all about trying to rip apart the social fabric and the political equilibrium of the American people, and he’s strategically planting doubts in advance,”
