As Biden running mate decision nears, negative stories on candidates increase
Washington Examiner ^ | May 28, 2020 | Joseph Simonson

Posted on 05/28/2020 10:33:27 AM PDT by kevcol

"Our Governor is the latest Democrat to decide that the rules they impose on their citizens to address the COVID-19 pandemic don’t apply to her," the New Mexico Republican Party tweeted Wednesday. "A bombshell report reveals that the governor violated her own stay-at-home order to stock up on some high-end jewelry."

Just a day before, Whitmer was forced to address reports that her husband had used her name at a dock to help get their boat placed in the water faster ahead of the Memorial Day weekend.

“My husband made a failed attempt at humor last week when checking in with a small business that helps with our boat and dock up north," Whitmer said during a press conference Tuesday. “Knowing it wouldn’t make a difference, he jokingly asked if being married to me might move him up in the queue. Obviously, with the motorized boating prohibition in our early days of COVID-19, he thought it might get a laugh. It didn’t.”

Gee, I wonder who would benefit from discrediting all those worthy Democrats.

Didn’t Gropin’ promise to make his decision by Memorial Day? Maybe he thinks Memorial Day is on Dec. 7.

I would expect a lot of blacks to stay away from the polls if Elizabeth Warren is the VP. They have doubts about Joe right now. Choosing that old white lady as VP? When he could have chosen Stacy Abrams? It’s not going to play well at all.

A pair of unflattering stories about prospective running mates for Joe Biden suggests more are coming. Whether or not they're the product of opposition research by political rivals is an open question.

What in the world does that second sentence have to do with the gist of the story? If there is no indication of any opposition research, why even mention it? This is how the media introduces bias into a story. The Trump campaign doesn't need to do any opposition research. All they have to do about Biden is let him be himself. Every time he opens his mouth he once again shows himself to be the gift that keeps on coming.

so far Biden hasn’t got a salable Veep candidate anywhere in sight. not a single one. they’re all losers who would cost him any chance of getting elected (as thin a chance as he has, ha!)

now if Biden would step outside the cat litter box and actually select an intelligent, sensible Veep .. he would give himself at least a prayer of a chance ... since everyone can see that his Veep would, alas, move into the White House very soon after election day

I stated almost a year ago Biden would not be the Democrats candidate. There was an unknown person in the wing waiting for the right time to bait and switch.

Biden (and Sander’s) role was to block anyone else from winning the primary.

What we are seeing now is an organized effort to take out all but the pre-selected person.

Who is the stealth candidate? Don’t know but time is running out for the Democrats. Biden is slipping the bounds of sanity and his replacement has to be named soon.

Side Bar: These Democrat Party women....like their Democrat Party men counterparts are all low life, scum & vermin, living, humanity!!! Why? because everyone one of them led by Obama/Biden/Pelosi is working as hard as they can to destroy the American economy, and the businesses and jobs that come with it!!!

I would be the last person in this world to not call the doctors, the nurses, the EMTs, the AMTs, the police, the firemen, all the hospital and health caretakers, etc. the true American heroes they are. They are all that and more.... Patriots!!!

But...there are others heroes in this battle to defeat the virus curse that need wide and sustained, national recognition as heroes,......and they are the thousands of small businesses and their employees that are forced to keep their enterprise closed by order of, Obama, Biden, Pelosi, and, Schumer, etc. Example the jokers in New York State, Governor “Nursing Home Killer”, and failed, weak, sickening, useless Andrew Cuomo and his lock step partner, Democrat, NYC Mayor, Bill De Blasio, the killer of NYC, forever!!!

Many Democrat Governers live in glee every day they destroy more USA businesses and jobs..period. Wake up American voters...your futures are at stake as well as the future of the USA Nation Republic. Destroy the entire Democrat Party, politically or die as a nation with them!!!

The Stacey Abrams assault vehicle is still out there, motor running and fully supplied with all kinds of munitions.

And Susan Rice, though highly unlikely at this point, stands ready to defend against ANY story the comes down the pike that is in the least derogatory in regards to Joe Biden. And do it all with a perfectly straight face.

Whatever happened to Alyssa Milano? She is a SOLID defender of Joe Biden, and such loyalty should not go unrewarded....

2020 is a Demagogic Party referendum on the Old Guard (mainly but not exclusively white people). Getting rid of Joe and another old white corrupticrat clears the way for 2024. Oh, and if you're not really black, you won't vote for Joe, so there. :^)

Oh, if Hillary were the Veep nom, the ads would write themselves.

In her favor, (just a suspicion, mind you) that she brings millions in dirty yuan to the campaign.

And in her disfavor, two major dings.

1. Nobody likes or trusts her (even Dems) and

2. She would continually and continuously HOG the spotlight, and try to upstage Biden at every turn. Who wants that?

.

My guess? I would bet a farthing that Biden's minders will select Kamala Harris. (Although ads for our side would write themselves for her, as well.)

“....2. She would continually and continuously HOG the spotlight, and try to upstage Biden at every turn. Who wants that? …”

Somebody will have to fill the vacuum in the “political buzz” left by a vacuous and probably largely absent Biden. Hellary could do that! So her hogging the spot light might be a good thing though it won’t change the outcome.

It would up the entertainment value!

Honestly Joe says he wants someone he can get along with. I think Mayor Pete is his best bet.

Not in the cards. Dem megadonors tied to Wall Street and hedge funds fiercely oppose Warren, while passing over the many Black VP choices would infuriate the Black segment of the Democratic base. My guess is that Biden will pick Harris.
