  • Uncle Joe Biden Meets Hollywood McCarthyism -- and Folds

    03/14/2019 11:58:39 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 19 replies ^ | March 15, 2019 | David Limbaugh
    I don't know which is worse, the intolerant left's condemnation of former Vice President Joe Biden for saying Vice President Mike Pence is a "decent guy," or Biden's shameless groveling and apology. Biden committed his unforgivable infraction during a speech in Omaha, in which he casually alluded to Pence's speech at the Munich Security Conference in early February. He said, "The fact of the matter is it was followed on by a guy who's a decent guy, our vice president, who stood before this group of allies and leaders and said, 'I'm here on behalf of President Trump,' and there...

    A CNN focus group comprised of Democratic voters has rejected former Vice President Joe Biden as their presidential nominee. The focus group's dismissal of Biden is notable since the former vice president, who is expected to join the Democratic primary soon, has been leading a number of public opinion polls and is seen as the potential front-runner. The Democrats gathered by CNN, however, said they weren't interested in Biden. Some said they wanted a candidate who was further to the left. “I think we need a bold, strong leadership, and you’ll find that in the progressives," Democratic voter Carol Evans...

    Former Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott said Joe Biden is the only Democrat he thinks would be competitive in the 2020 election against President Trump. “Joe will be able to perpetuate the image of Uncle Joe, and he is pleasant. He is qualified,” Lott, a Mississippi Republican, said in an interview for the Yahoo News podcast “The Long Game.” “Half this bunch in there right now is not qualified,” Lott said of the current Democratic field.

    Former Vice President Joe Biden is almost certain to run for president in 2020, a source with direct knowledge told Fox News on Thursday. The source said the timing of an announcement is still up in the air. With such a crowded field of Democratic hopefuls, Biden wants to keep big donors and potential staffers with him, and has been conducting outreach to former colleagues, grassroots activists and contributors, the source said. Fox News also confirmed through two sources that California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein met privately Thursday morning with Biden. The sources said Feinstein expects Biden to run.A “Friends of Joe” group,...

    I’m honestly surprised. This guy’s been dithering about whether to run through not one but two election cycles now. Clearly he’s not that eager to do it. Just as clearly he’s going to face a barrage from the left if he gets in aimed at knocking him back from the fragile frontrunner status he momentarily enjoys. It’d be the easiest thing for him to conclude that he’s simply too old and his time is past. Then he’d be remembered by his party warmly, as a two-term VP to the first black president who had the good sense to stand...

    Praise for Bork and Thurmond, partial-birth-abortion-ban support, death-penalty enthusiasm, and more 1. As a young man, JoeBiden received five student draft deferments during the Vietnam War — which just happens to be the same number of deferments received by former vice president Dick Cheney. Biden later was disqualified from service because of the asthma that he suffered as a teenager. Oddly, the asthma was not severe enough to stop Biden from playing on his high-school football team or playing halfback for the University of Delaware Blue Hens. 2. In the earliest moments of his Senate career, Biden was a proponent...

    Run, Joe, run. Run because you have strengths that no other Democratic candidate does, including your depth of experience and connection to the Obama presidency. Run because your populist image fits the Democrats’ most successful political strategy of the past generation. Run because you will never have another chance — and because you are not afraid of losing. I get the case against Biden. My colleague Frank Bruni has made it and made it well, as have Vox’s Matthew Yglesias and others. At 76 years old, Biden does not represent an exciting new era. He is an old white guy...

    Another prominent Democrat is urging former Vice President Joe Biden to run for president in 2020. California Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein said on Thursday that she believes Biden has the best chance to defeat President Trump. (RELATED: Dianne Feinstein Signals She May Be Running For Re-Election- She’ll Be 91) “Joe was chairman of the Judiciary [Committee] when he came to this place. I’ve watched him as vice president, I’ve seen him operate, I’ve seen him perform,” Feinstein told Politico. “He brings a level of experience and seniority which I think is really important.”

    Former Vice President Joe Biden said he would decide if he’s running for president in 2020 soon. But in the meantime, he’s confident he is up for the job. “I think I’m the most qualified person in the country to be president. The issues that we face as a country today are the issues that I’ve worked on my whole life,” Biden told a crowd in Montana Monday, according to the Missoula Current. Biden, 76, was at the University of Montana in Missoula Monday to promote his book, “Promise Me, Dad.” He said he would rely on his family to...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden is leading the field of prospective 2020 Democratic candidates, according to a recent poll from CNN. The CNN/SSRS poll, which surveyed 1,009 adults between October 4 and 7, found that one-third—or 33 percent—of Democrats and independents who leaned Democratic thought Biden would be the most likely to take on President Trump in the 2020 presidential election.

    One Democrat keeps emerging as the candidate Republicans are worried about most in 2020: Joe Biden. Top Republican strategists and party operatives assessing the potential field of candidates say the former vice president is the Democrat likely to pose the biggest problem for President Trump in a general election. Biden, who has not announced whether he will seek the White House for a third time, would have to win a crowded Democratic primary to get to the general, and that would be no easy task.

    Shortly after Joe Biden boarded a recent flight from Washington to New York, a string of passengers began stopping at his seat in coach to deliver some version of the same message: Run, Joe, run. "We're with you," one said, according to a Democratic strategist who happened to be on the plane and witnessed the scene. "You've got to do this," said another. Biden himself is more conflicted — but he is listening keenly to the supporters pushing him to run for the White House in 2020. Biden is convinced he can beat President Donald Trump, friends and advisers say,...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden on Monday said that "everything" is at stake for Democrats in the upcoming midterms. “Everything. It’s simple: everything," Biden said in response to a question from a Politico reporter on the importance of November's general election. Biden made the comments as he prepared to march in the Labor Day parade in Pittsburgh. His statement comes just a couple months before a midterm election that Democrats view as a chance to retake control of the House and maybe the Senate. Democrats hold a 6-point edge over Republicans on a generic congressional ballot, according to a poll...

    Joe Biden is leading the Democratic field in some early polls asking voters about the party’s prospective presidential candidates in 2020. But in his old stomping grounds in the U.S. Senate, there are plenty of skeptics who point to the former vice president’s age, his support for the Iraq War and his two failed presidential bids as reasons to doubt he would be successful. “It’s hard to see someone [winning] who voted for the Iraq war. People are looking to turn the page,” one senior Democratic aide said. A second senior Democratic aide said “polls show that voters want someone...

    A plurality of registered voters, 44 percent, said they’d choose Biden in the 2020 presidential election, while 37 percent of voters said they would vote for Trump. The percentage of Democrats who would choose Biden — 80 percent — was slightly higher than the 78 percent of Republicans who would vote for the president‘s reelection. The former vice president, who ran for the White House in 1988 and 2008, has been floated as a 2020 contender, and Biden himself has said he’s not ruling out a third try. Morning Consult surveyed 1,993 registered voters from July 26 to July 30...

    Former President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden were spotted together shopping for goodies at a bakery in Washington, D.C., on Monday. Their surprise stop at Dog Tag Bakery in Georgetown led to a frenzy among onlookers, all trying to take photos with the political superstars. Obama and Biden, known for the close friendship that developed during their White House tenure, were photographed buying treats at the bakery, which has a special mission. Dog Tag Bakery says it's dedicated to "empowering veterans with service-connected disabilities, military spouses and caregivers." According to their website, the shop is all about "baking...

    Axios ^ | 07/25/2018 | Mike Allen
    Advisers (unnamed sources?) to President Trump say Joe Biden is the Democrat he most fears running against, and that Pennsylvania is the state he worries most about flipping against him. Trump’s calculation is based partly on how weak he sees other Democratic possibilities, including Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren, and partly on who’s capable of appealing to his base of working class whites. Biden, sources tell me, doesn't think Trump is morally or politically fit for the Oval Office. The former vice president, who at 75 is three years older than Trump, pines to run and will test the waters...
