over Narcan and crackpipe vending machines: White flag of surrender to addiction Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has the White House worried, and rightly so: Boys who shout “The emperor has no clothes” have an impact.
So far, the Bidenites are relying on their media allies to maul RFK Jr., Politico reports.
Problem is, the reason the challenger’s running at 20% in primary polls has less to do with his last name (even Marianne Williamson’s at 8%) than with President Biden’s incredible weakness.
Biden’s record is beyond atrocious, and at 80, he’s showing signs of serious decline. Voters — most definitely including Democrats — know it.
So even someone as flaky as RFK Jr. starts to look appealing.
Per the latest CNN-SRSS survey, the prez gets only 60% support from Dems, a stunningly poor showing for a sitting president.
And 42% of those say they might ultimately go with someone else. Add to RFK’s 20% support those who say they’d consider backing him, and he soars to 64%.
Again, this is for a candidate full of kooky views: a longtime vaccine hysteric who suggests Big Pharma’s behind the rise in US mass shootings and urges looking at the Ukraine war from Russia’s point of view.
Then again, Pat Buchanan carried his own far-out baggage when he ran against President George H.W. Bush in the 1992 GOP primary — exposing that incumbent’s weaknesses even as he lost, and presaging Bush’s loss in November to Bill Clinton.
Sure, Biden’s allies may take down RFK by harping on his oddest views, but that won’t stop the challenger from flagging Joe’s disasters.
And plenty of Democrats will flock to a guy who vows to seal the border, whatever else he says.

RFKJR is 80% MAGA,
and 20% BatShiite Dem Crazy.
Way better than Poopy Pants Joe, who is 99% BatShiite Crazy
or KamleToe, who is just Willie’s DumpBucket
Went to the border at 2 in the morning to see what it is really like. Reminds me of his uncle who when told by the military that our planes were not lined up in a row, for them to check. They were.
I actually find RFK’s views on vaccines a ray of hope against a dark future of a deep-state, big-pharma alliance. He is also interesting and intelligent
If he runs, the Dems have it....easily...no cheating necessary.
Viewing the war in Ukraine thru Russian eyes is kooky? Conservative news outlets are kookier.
RFK Jr’s wife may account for at least some of that 20%.
Nancy Reagan Unfo got caught up in astrology after the Gipper was shot.
The ladies can lead their men astray.
The steak will be much harder this time around. I can see the undemocratic super-delegates getting together to get RFK elected. He’d get some votes from squishy “moderates” too. Then the Dims can stay in charge. Could happen.
I love any crashers to a Beltway party. I hope he brings a paid escort date, named “Mary-Jo”.
Thinkin’ probably not.
He is running — he formally announced April 19.
They are not sweating. They control elections, not the people.
There seems to be something really odd about his voice, he’s extremely raspy. Not sure how much it means, but in politics things like that sometimes matter wildly out of proportion. While he has that famous last name, he doesn’t appear to have the same sort of aura about him that his father or Uncle John had.
Eugene McCarthy did the same thing in 1968, until he was thwarted by Jr’s dad, so effectively that someone had to off the dad in order to keep the establishment in control of the party. Four years later McGovern accomplished what McCarthy wanted, and ever since the Dem establishment has been hardcore leftist instead of Truman/Stevenson/Humphrey liberal.
They’ll do whatever they have to this time around in order to keep Jr from the nomination, including what happened to his father and his uncle if necessary.
RFK isn’t electable. Most people can’t understand him when he talks.
I do like the fact that without announcing to the media he went to the border at 2 in the morning to see what the real conditions are like. Something Trump would do.
He has a very rare condition that effects his vocal cords
The Kennedy Klan won’t support him.
