Skip to comments.Biden Handlers’ New Strategy: Hide the Geezer
Posted on 03/10/2020 4:40:05 AM PDT by EyesOfTX
You just cannot make this stuff up. The Democrat toadies at the Washington Post have a new piece out this morning which details growing concern in the Quid Pro Joe camp about their candidates obviously advancing cognitive issues. The buffoon who produced 2-3 wtf moments per week on the trail during the first few months of his campaign has recently been giving us 2-3 such brain freezes each day, and the that frequency was becoming too much for the corrupt news media to gloss over as mere gaffes.
Thanks to the DNC/Media narrative advancing Bidens electability, none of this has really mattered all that much to depraved Democrat voters who have no concern about the good of the country and are only focused on regaining political power. These people would nominate a potato from Idaho if they thought it could beat the evil Orange Man in the White House. Thus, Bidens handlers find themselves in the enviable position of now working with a significant lead in the race for the nomination, which provides them with a great deal of flexibility on ways to manage the campaign and the candidate.
Given that flexibility, Quid Pro Joes handlers which obviously includes his wife, Jill rolled out a nifty new, scaled-down version of his stump speech over the weekend. Biden talks that have been rambling on for 60-90 minutes now last no longer than a typical commercial break on the History Channel, with the text now all carefully read by the candidate from a teleprompter.
From the Washington Post piece:
Bidens event in St. Louis, framed by the Gateway Arch, clocked in at around seven minutes Saturday. A short time later, at a windswept event in Kansas City, people were streaming for their cars after Biden wrapped up in 12 minutes. His longest speech of the weekend, in the gym of Tougaloo College in Jackson, Miss., didnt quite make 15 minutes.
It is a seismic shift for Biden, 77, who in five decades of political office and three White House runs has never had a reputation for breviloquence. Its a habit perhaps nurtured in the Senate, which prides itself on limitless debate and has a special term filibuster for talking endlessly.
The less Biden strays from his streamlined and teleprompter-ed remarks, the less likely he is to make a gaffe that could damagingly ricochet around the Internet. Even with his shorter speeches, hes made an unforced error or two. In his Sunday remarks at New Hope Baptist Church (14 minutes), he derided Mississippis former governor for not accepting Medicare-for-all which happens to be Sanderss chief policy proposal instead of the Affordable Care Act.
So, which recent presidential candidate does this remind you of? If you said Hillary Clinton, you win the prize, which sadly amounts only to my undying admiration of your prescience.
Yes, friends, the nations Unfrozen Caveman Senator has now adopted the hide the candidate tactic deployed by the Fainting Felon once it became clear that she had built a clear delegate edge over Bernie Sanders in their race for the 2016 Democrat nomination. With the Coughing Crook, the strategy was all about the fact that Democrat voters liked the idea of Hillary Clinton but really didnt care much for her as a person. Thus, the less they saw of her, the more popular she became with them.
As the Biden toadies at the Post point out, the strategy for his campaign is all about damage control. The less exposure Quid Pro Joe has before the cameras, the less opportunity for the candidate to say something that will make the public wonder what in the hell is going on with this guy?
The problem with this particular strategy, though, is that it only works through the party convention in July. Once that event has come and gone, it becomes impossible for the party to hide its nominee any longer, even with the willing cooperation of 98% of the nations news media.
In the general election, Quid Pro Joe will find himself needing to reach out and gain the support of independent voters who dont give a damn about his partys ravenous thirst for political power. At some point in the campaign, there will come a black swan event that causes the reality of Joe Biden to literally leap off the television screen and grab those voters attention.
For the Pantsuit Princess, that moment came when she fainted dead away while waiting on her hospital van to whisk her away from the 9/11 event in New York City. Remember, the entirety of the corrupt news media was going to hide that moment from you it was only thanks to a bystander who captured the moment with his I-Phone that you even knew about it. Try as they might, there are some things that are just beyond the control of any campaign and its supporting media toadies.
Biden stands poised to basically wrap the Democrat nomination up with big wins in Michigan and Missouri today, and more in Ohio, Florida, Illinois and Arizona a week from now, so the hide the geezer strategy is almost certain to remain in place for the next four months. The Biden camp and its media supporters hope that the resulting reduction in the frequency of Biden outbursts of gibberish will make us all forget our concerns about his mental state.
Thatll almost certainly work to secure the nomination. After the convention, though, theyll have to come up with some other ruse. Because, as the Pantsuit Princess proved in 2016, you cant hide the geezer forever.
That is all.
This was their strategy, when was it, last summer? Back when he was the presumptive leader.
Any time he is on top, he becomes his own highest risk factor.
“They can fool some of the people some of the time, but they can’t fool all of the people all of the time”.
I think a lot of pressure will be on Bernie to drop out. Maybe before the next debate. They just need Joe to make it to the Convention and then he can step aside for health reasons and the DNC can tell us who they have selected as the nominee.
Meme of the month. Sort of like Tourist Guy. Find the Geezer in this picture. We will see him a Trump rallies, MS-13 gang meetings, bank heists, meetings of Putin's thugs...
As a caller to Mark Steyn (subbing for Rush a week or two ago) said, the reason Biden lost in the early primaries is that people actually saw him up close, and realized there was no “there” there.
SandersIdiot will abide by their wishes, he cowed to them and Allowed Hillary to just sh*t all over him. He is a good comrade. /s
WTF! Hide Tommy Biden? That’s cruel. See me, feel me, grope me, smell me. The poor guy needs to get out more. He’s been held captive by BIG GOV since 1973.

And the fact that people had a choice. But the communists running the Democrat party eliminated all viable alternatives to Biden except for unelectable Crazy Burnie and that pushed Joe over the top.
Caronavirus prevention. Self-quarantine. Perfect excuse.
Hillary Clinton’s dream. Sanders is too far left even for Democrats and Biden is a babbling gaffe machine. She’s hoping for a call from the DNC to save them.
“I think a lot of pressure will be on Bernie to drop out. Maybe before the next debate. They just need Joe to make it to the Convention and then he can step aside for health reasons and the DNC can tell us who they have selected as the nominee.”
Bingo, that is the plan! But who?
It won’t be hard to do. His supporters are about as demented as he is.
Doe anyone know if it’s true. Someone said on a radio talk show that Bernie got kicked out of a Commune he was in because he didn’t want to do any of the work.
It sure sounds like it could be true.
I see no point in emphasizing Biden’s weaknesses until his nomination is inevitable. At that point, we can watch the Bernie thugs throw their fit when the party has manipulated the primaries to keep a communist tyrant from winning and then manipulates the convention to keep the last man standing, their man, from being nominated. That will be great fun.
Personally, I think the Democrats realize that Trump will be re-elected. The Democrat nominee isn’t going to be someone who will win, but someone who will bring out enough voters to keep the House for the Democrats.
I think it will be a woman. Probably a black woman. My guess is Michelle. Hillary is also a possibility — too old and sick to serve effectively, but a lot of Democrats would like the chance to come out one more time and show their support.
My long shot guess is that Mitt Romney could run as a Democrat. He would attract Never Trumpers, and, since he’d be the Democrat nominee, the Democrats would support him against Trump. His policies are very Left and very anti-Trump. He could do well for them — and position himself as a “unity” candidate.
Dem operatives tried to hide Hillary’s illness (dragging her to a waiting van after her collapse). They are certainly smart enough to hide Slo Joe when he is overcome with “foot-n-mouth.”
