    (Biden): And what my constant cry was that our biggest problem is our allies – our allies in the region were our largest problem in Syria. The Turks were great friends – and I have the greatest relationship with Erdogan, which I just spent a lot of time with – the Saudis, the Emiratis, etc. What were they doing? They were so determined to take down Assad and essentially have a proxy Sunni-Shia war, what did they do? They poured hundreds of millions of dollars and tens, thousands of tons of weapons into anyone who would fight against Assad except...

    CLEMSON, SC (WIS) - Vice President Joe Biden, who touts himself as Washington’s optimist, delivered an uncharacteristically stern speech on sexual assault to a packed gym of Clemson University students Tuesday morning. 'Sexual assault isnt about sex,' Biden said, 'Its about power.' Biden delivered his 30-minute address at Clemson on the first stop of his It’s On Us tour. The program raises awareness against sexual assault on college campuses, a portion of the United States that Biden says has fallen behind in the fight against rape and domestic violence. 'No means no,' Biden said. 'There are no exceptions.' Biden,...

    Without mentioning his name, US Vice President blasts new hasbarah chief Dr. Ran Baratz, over his past comments against President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry. Biden was quick to stress America's “rock-solid” commitment to Israeli security at the start of his 45-minute address before the Union for Reform Judaism's biennial in Orlando, Florida. Then, in sharp condemnation of Baratz, Biden noted that "although we won’t always agree, and this is the one thing I do want to say - We should always be respectful of one another." “There is no excuse, there should be no tolerance for...

    After Barack Obama’s totally predictable cancellation of the Keystone XL pipeline project (for now, at least) there was great celebration among the environmental brigade of the Social Justice Warriors. The evil pipeline was dead, along with all the jobs it would bring and the opportunity for us to capture and process much of Canada’s wealth of energy rather than it being shipped to China. (Which it will be anyway when the Northern Gateway Pipeline is complete, whether we get some of it or not.) But as with all things in the liberal enclaves of the country, one victory is...

    WASHINGTON, Sept. 17—     Senator Joseph R. Biden Jr., fighting to salvage his Presidential campaign, today acknowledged ''a mistake'' in his youth, when he plagiarized a law review article for a paper he wrote in his first year at law school.       Mr. Biden insisted, however, that he had done nothing ''malevolent,'' that he had simply misunderstood the need to cite sources carefully. And he asserted that another controversy, concerning recent reports of his using material from others' speeches without attribution, was ''much ado about nothing.''~snip~The plagiarized article, ''Tortious Acts as a Basis for Jurisdiction in Products Liability Cases,'' was published in the...

Speaking in the Rose Garden alongside his wife Jill and President Obama, Biden said the window of opportunity to mount a viable campaign "has closed." He has been weighing a decision since summer, but cautioned all along that he and his family were grieving over the loss of his son Beau Biden -- and said Wednesday he knew that process could outlast the window for making a decision.

    Rumors continue to swirl that Vice President Biden will soon be (finally) making up his mind about whether to run for president. Why is this taking so long? Conventional wisdom seems to revolve around two theories: (1) He really hasnt made up his mind, or (2) hes simply waiting on standby in case something big drops on frontrunner Hillary Clinton. Either is plausible, although the first strikes me as less plausible. If nothing else, Biden is a canny politician, and he understands the difficulties of entering the race this late in the game. I dont think hed simply wait around...

And that's what happened when Joe Biden decided to give an alternative history account of his role in the decision to attack the compound in Abbottobad where Osama bin Laden was eventually killed. Previously, several participants - including President Obama and then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton - said that Biden was opposed to the raid. But yesterday, we learn that Biden actually told the President (in private)...

    Via Jeff Dunetz, I’d rate this half-true. On the one hand, Biden is reputedly cordial with Republicans and has traditionally been the guy dispatched by Obama to Capitol Hill whenever the White House needs a liaison to Mitch McConnell. On the other hand, if this is how he treats his friends, what does he do to his actual enemies?Let’s not overthink it, though. This remark is obviously a rejoinder to Hillary’s stupid reply at last week’s debate when asked which enemy she’s proudest to have made. Biden’s positioning himself contra Clinton as someone with enough goodwill among congressional Republicans...

    The conventional wisdom is that Joe Biden has been staying on the electoral sidelines, waiting to see how bad the email scandal gets for Hillary. But while that might be true, consider that Biden need not just be a passive player in the game.

As brilliant and charismatic as is Lincoln Chaffee, still he might just not do. But what if Biden...

    The general consensus after Hillary Clinton's polished performance in the first Democratic presidential debate is that Joe Biden squandered the excitement about his potential run, and would face a difficult political path if he disrupted what's shaping up to be a strong Democratic primary. Biden's already months behind in fundraising, and as FiveThirtyEight notes, candidates who make a late entry into the race don't necessarily get a bounce in the polls. But politics aside, is it even technically possible for Biden to declare his candidacy at this point? The vice-president has yet to miss any crucial deadlines, but within a...

    RUSH: Here is another montage of the Drive-By Media talking about how great Hillary was. She was so good that it's just too late for Joe Biden to even bother. BLITZER: Joe Biden, the vice president, may have missed his chance. DANIEL HALPER: Maybe we don't need Joe Biden. KRISTEN WELKER: If Vice President Biden was looking for a clear opening into the race last night, he didn't get it. JOHN DICKERSON: Were talking about her performance and not the huge vacuum in the race to be filled by a white knight like Joe Biden. VAN JONES: If Im Biden,...

    Just before tonight's Democratic debate began in Las Vegas, I made a prediction: And so it came to pass. Mrs. Clinton presented herself as the experienced, hyper-informed, trailblazing adult in the room throughout the evening, directing almost all of her verbal punches at Republicans.  Only once did she directly attack one of her rivals: Bernie Sanders, (predictably) on gun control, perhaps the only issue on which she can credibly outflank him to the left. In spite of her hedging on in-state tuition for illegal immigrants and marijuana legalization, extremely weak answers on Libya and trade, and unresponsive dismissiveness on her burgeoning email scandal...

    Frontrunner Clinton prepares to debate surging Sanders Hillary Clinton faces heavy pressure during the first Democratic presidential debate Tuesday to outperform primary rivals cutting into her lead and perhaps keep her biggest potential challenger on the sidelines. Vice President Biden, still mulling a bid, is not expected to be on stage in Las Vegas. But hell surely be watching as the former secretary of state spars in person for the first time with her 2016 Democratic opponents. And those candidates have not been shy about casting Clinton as a calculating candidate swaying with the political winds. Most recently, Clinton has...

    Perhaps after a year-long plunge in both popularity and a sense of inevitability, Hillary Clinton was due for a break. According to the latest Washington Post/ABC News poll, her plunge in at least the former appears to have plateaued, at least for the moment. Instead of the 45/53 of late August, she has improved to 47/49 — a change within the margin of error, but perhaps a refreshing break for Team Hillary nonetheless: New polling data from The Washington Post and ABC News, though, paints a different picture. Since August, Clinton’s approval rating is . . . up slightly,...

    Michelle Obama's Mirror ^ | 10-13-2015 | MOTUS
    Tonight Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders (along with others too small to mention) take to the stage for a debate being held at the Winn in Las Vegas. I note that CNN has been clear that they will not be pitting one candidates position against another. I rather thought that was the purpose of presidential debates.Butt I guess that format is considered a micro-aggression in Democrat debates, as its based on a debate structure invented by old white imperialists. (note: this rule does not apply to Republican debates, as they are all old white imperialists)Will the candidates be asked if...

    On the eve of the first Democratic presidential debate, President Obama is downplaying Hillary Rodham Clintons use of a private email server to conduct government business, saying she made a mistake but didnt endanger national security. I think shed be the first to acknowledge that maybe she could have handled the original decision better and the disclosures more quickly, Mr. Obama said in an interview on CBS 60 Minutes broadcast Sunday night. I dont think it posed a national security problem. It was a mistake that she has acknowledged. When interviewer Steve Kroft pointed out that the administration has prosecuted...

    RUSH: I'm telling you, Snerdley, do not discount this. We've been making this mistake now since the early nineties. The left will go out, the Democrats, somebody will say something just totally outrageous, like all these clowns that predicted the end of the earth in ten years if we didn't clean up the oceans, or name your prediction. Twenty years ago, or 40 years ago, if we didn't fix global warming in 20 years we weren't gonna be able to inhabit the East Coast, all of these things.

    Here's an exchange from Bernie Sanders's appearance on "Meet the Press" on Sunday: CHUCK TODD: Are you a capitalist? @BernieSanders: No. I'm a Democratic Socialist. And, in those five words, Sanders showed why no matter how much energy there is for him on the liberal left he isn't getting elected president. Why? Because Democrat or Republican (or independent), capitalism remains a pretty popular concept especially when compared to socialism. A 2011 Pew Research Center survey showed that 50 percent of people had a favorable view of capitalism, while 40 percent had an unfavorable one. Of socialism, just...
