Biden has no Chance



The Democratic Party has a serious problem: their front-runner for the presidential nomination is a dope. You have read about Joe Biden’s “gaffes”: he can’t remember Barack Obama’s name, he tells a story about military heroism that is wrong in every detail, he can’t remember that by 2018, when the Parkland shooting happened, he was long gone from the vice presidency, and so on. Biden can’t get through a day without a blunder that makes headlines.

But there is a difference. The classic Washington definition of a “gaffe” is when someone says what he really thinks. With Biden, headline-making blunders reveal significant cognitive difficulties. Biden has been slow for his whole life–of average intelligence at best–and his mental faculties have not improved as he has aged. At 76 years old, the is no longer competent, assuming he ever was.

This is a big problem for the Democrats. Despite everything, Biden remains on top of polls for their presidential nomination. Other candidates–Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris–have gained a certain amount of traction. But it is extraordinary that they haven’t yet been able to surpass a candidate who, to put it politely, is no longer capable of appearing and speaking in public. This attests to the weakness of the Democrats’ presidential field.

I think there is zero chance that Joe Biden will be the Democrats’ 2020 presidential nominee. He is obviously not up to the task, and Democratic primary voters are not in the mood to select a deeply confused, 76-year-old white man to run for president. The nominee will be someone else. But the fact that no candidate has stepped forward to seize the mantle–or even exceed Biden’s total in a poll!–shows how thin the Democrats’ bench is.

If I were a Democrat, I would be worried about the fact that my party’s best-known politician, who still tops most polls, is obviously unqualified to run a small business, let alone the executive branch of the United States of America. This is a huge problem that the Democrats have yet to solve.

1. It would not surprise me if at the last minute Hillary decides to run. ...

There are rumors to this effect.

It might be a wise move on her part as it is a possible way to avoid prosecution.

3. there will be no prosecution

certainly not a successful one. there will be no hillary 3.0.

I don't think biden will be the nominee, but the superdelegates will decide that, maybe even the brokers.

besides Hilda, he's about the only credible Democrat candidate.

6. You have to hand it to the the Dems

Back in 2015 it was thought that nobody could lose to Trump.

First, they found Hiilary, now Biden.

12. Youre probably right. I think Dims were/are really

wanting to push this woman thing again so it’s either Warren or Harris. That’s why there’s so much anger at Gabbard. She took down one of their preferred candidates.

We have a long time to go. Too long. I hate these people for a lot of reasons but one at the top of my list is their foisting themselves on the American public almost 2 years before the election.

able to salvage something if they hadn't gone after Gabbard tooth and nail.

10. Against a manic serial screw-up, Biden can't lose

If Biden really were sleepy and befuddled, he would still put Trump to shame. Trump energetically lies and fails in everything he attempts. He makes our country look bad.

They rant about a guy who's running for office but fail to notice the guy holding the office. He's crazy as a bed bug.

16. With help from the Russians and in a time when...

... some voters felt they could afford to play games thanks to the Obama/Biden/Dem prosperity.

Hillary was also held to the (higher) Dem standards of personal conduct.
