The preferred front runner for the Democrat sweepstakes to take on Trump in 2020- Joe Biden- seems to have taken a hit in Iowa and things are looking grim in New Hampshire. Although it is unclear just who won what and how many a week after the Iowa caucuses, one name consistently not placed at the top of the list is that of Joe Biden. As Senator Ted Cruz succinctly put it, the people who want to the run the country cannot count people in a gymnasium. It is laughably sad.
Perhaps it is a good thing that the new “anointed one” by the DNC is taking a beating early on in the slog through primaries and caucuses. Biden has been in politics way too many years and there are likely many skeletons in the Biden closet not named Hunter. The fact is he really is not that an intelligent a person. Seriously, why plagiarize a Neil Kinnock speech, of all people? And this man wants to be the President of the United States when he barely qualifies to the president of a local Rotary Club?
Joe Biden’s stupidity- and objectively speaking, he is stupid- has been described as his ultimate Achille’s heel. That is kind of a misnomer. Looked at another way, his stupidity, which is the source of his gaffes, is baked into his numbers. Democrats know Biden is stupid, but they will vote for him anyway in a general election. They also know that the other candidates are not only stupid, they’re crazy. To most Democrats, they will take Biden’s stupidity over Trump since they view Trump as an existential threat to mankind.
Of course, it could just be that Biden is simply senile. Admittedly, he is a loose cannon and fired a huge cannonball when he admitted a quid pro quo on video involving Ukraine and the firing of a prosecutor looking into Burisma, the same company his son just happened to be a member of their Board of Directors. As egregious as this was, never forget that Biden played up the death of his first wife for political gain accusing the truck driver involved in that crash of “drinking his lunch” knowing full well that alcohol was not involved. But hey…why waste an unfortunate tragedy?
Biden is a ticking time bomb for the Democrats. We know he was not that great of a law student, that he lied and bragged about his academic record, that he was caught cheating, that he has a penchant for plagiarism. We know that his record as a Senator was less than stellar and his record as Vice President was even worse. He has been wrong about virtually everything except his decision to get hair plugs.
He may have even failed as the proverbial straw man who many believe was used to get Trump via the Ukraine impeachment fiasco. In theory, it is not a bad gambit, but when you have people like Schiff and Nadler who, believe it or not, are even more stupid than Biden, the “case” was doomed to failure. Now that impeachment is behind us, his usefulness is over.
There is another theory about Biden that is plausible, all things considered. By being himself, he is creating a great insanity defense in order to avoid any culpability about his Ukrainian quid pro quo. In 2016, every “journalist” and their uncle was after Trump’s financial information. Maybe Trump screwed a few businessmen and banks here and there, but Biden screwed the American taxpayers and the Ukrainians. There are numerous stories out there about how the Bidens have enriched themselves at the government teat.
All one can say at this point is that the Democrat clown car has become must-see TV and the best entertainment since circuses went the way of the dodo bird. The Left and Democrats (but I repeat myself) have backed themselves into a corner. Today, some have written about how they are screwing Bernie Sanders again. Other than Biden, who do they have waiting in the wings? I doubt too many Democrats are going to be whipped into a frenzy by the likes of Mike Bloomberg or Pete Buttigieg.
It is possible Biden could get himself out of his self-dug hole and announce tomorrow that his VP choice is Hillary Clinton. Of course, that would also illustrate he has suicidal tendencies given the body count behind her.
