‘Weaker candidate than Hillary’: Democrats
cast deep doubt on Biden’s 2020 value

McClatchy, by Alex Roarty

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/11/2019 10:22:08 AM

Joe Biden is everything a Democratic political consultant should love: He’s experienced, well-liked, and his poll numbers look great against Donald Trump. And yet many party strategists have a bleak assessment of his potential 2020 campaign: It’s a bad, bad idea. “This last election cycle, we’ve seen a whole new level of energy that has emerged through a lot of fresh faces, and the party has moved in that direction and wants to hear new ideas and different messages,” said Norm Sterzenbach, a former executive director of the Iowa Democratic Party who now works as a consultant in the state.

Certainly not wanted by the republicans. But, I don;t understand Biden´s loyalty to the democrat party after the way they stacked the deck against him in the last election.

If he had an ounce of self-respect, he would be a maverick democrat.

This guy has survived by coming across as a bumbling nobody with a nice smile. He will not get past the first primary against serious (snicker) candidates like Beto O´Rourke.

Straight white males need not apply. Beside, the big government left wants another Obama that the ignorant masses will all go gaga for. Besides, Biden is too pro-freedom. The left wants a true Commie/Socialist.

Biden needs to remain on the junk heap from whence he came when Obama tapped him.
Fresh new faces with ideas. Wow! What ideas are those we want to know? Some of those fresh new faces we don´t have a clue who they are and if you mean Booker and Harris that´s clownish faces in the spotlight.
The democrat left is going to be interesting in the primary as they tear each other apart.

It´s very entertaining to see the fractured dem party try to function. Every dem that pops up gets whack-a-moled by some other dem.

Part of the problem they have is that all of them are seriously flawed in one way or another. In a dem-Republican battle, media protects the dem´s weaknesses and makes up stuff about the Republican.

But in a dem-dem battle, the media takes sides as well. Some revel in Biden´s weakness and Warren´s ethnic appropriation problem. Other´s love to point out AOC´s middle school solutions and Kamala´s boyfriends and their favors. Beyond the candidates, it seems like there is a stream of dem´s in the news who are making serious and visible mistakes. People ask, "Who ARE these clowns?".

No matter who managers to survive the primaries, they will be deeply scarred and of questionable "value" to the Country.

This article reiterates the fact that the core of today´s Democratic Party is identity politics. The statement that there is real distaste for baby boomers (which means older white people with traditional values) says it all. They don´t like you so they want you out of office regardless of your politics, period. The Democratic Party core is either racist (don´t like white people) and bigoted (don´t like people with traditional values).

The pasty old white groping gaffe machine who has had two brain aneurysms was never able to get more than 8% of the vote in any presidential primary on his own. He’s the punch line to a national joke.

As to those “fresh ideas” - they may have been fresh during the Wilson administation but they are petrified now. The left has nowhere to go but backward.

You could not find a starker political antithesis then exists between Biden and Trump.

While Biden is a career DC liberal Democrat lawyer-politician who has spent just about his entire career of over forty years in DC, Trump is a very successful businessman who has not held any previous political position but was elected as President.

In all the years that Biden spent in DC, it is hard to find that he has any real accomplishments other than bloviating, and harassing Clarance Thomas in a confirmation hearing that ended with Thomas being confirmed to the Supreme Court. After being elected Trump has been trying to make right issues that the DC Uniparty, including Biden has been kicking down the road for decades at the behest of special interests to the detriment of the country, has made the US economy much better that has during Trump’s term in office caused to creation of more new jobs out there then there are willing American workers to fill them.

Biden has also shown that he is a very overly friendly touchy-feely individual anytime he is standing near women or girls who he does not know. In that respect it is clear that Trump was a womanizer back well over a decade ago. But there has never been any contention or evidence that he ever engaged in any sexual activity that was not completely consensual, and he and his spouse have apparently reconciled over those past activities that took place many years ago long before Trump was ever elected.

Plugs doesn´t owe an apology to Anita Hill. He owes it to Clarence Thomas. So far each of the announced dims running for POTUS is from a state carried by The Beast in 2016. The senator from Ohio might be the most formidable opponent. Ohio is a state the GOP has to have. Sherrod Brown is an idiot but he is from a swing state.

Why is Trump, and not Obama,

President Trump has been turned down by Democrats for a sensible border barrier, so he will declare a national emergency in accordance with a law Congress passed in 1976. Somehow, following a law Congress passed gets Trump labeled as a dictator. Here is the case for declaring a national emergency: Tens of thousands of people die each year from drug overdoses and a huge percentage of those drugs comes across the porous southern border illegally. Here is one story, headlined: "Deadly blue ´Mexican oxy´ pills take toll on US Southwest": Aaron Francisco Chavez swallowed at least one of the sky

MUNICH— German Chancellor Angela Merkel robustly defended European nations’ decision to stand by the Iran nuclear deal in a spirited backing Saturday of her multilateral approach to global affairs, but U.S. Vice President Mike Pence promptly accused Europe of once again undermining the United States. Merkel’s comments at the Munich Security Conference, an annual gathering of top global defense and foreign policy officials, followed days of tensions between Washington and Europe over Iran. U.S. President Donald Trump unilaterally pulled out of the 2015 Iran nuclear agreement last year, leaving the others

In mid-January, a federal judge blocked an additional question to the survey that wants to ask whether the participant is a U.S. citizen. The Supreme Court promised yesterday to hear the case quickly so it is resolved before the 2020 Census. The Census is done every ten years so that Congress knows how to regulate federal money and affects the amount of representation each district gets. The number of electoral votes is also determined by the Census. Liberal leaders have long been counting illegals in the Census to inflate representation, then electing representatives who declare their area a "sanctuary" for

Sen. Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.) is running to become the first black female president. But in the early days of the campaign, she’s had to answer questions about the “legitimacy” of her “blackness.” Online, stories have circulated suggesting that Harris is not African American because her parents are immigrants and she spent some of her childhood in Canada. During an appearance on “The Breakfast Club” radio show Monday, hosts DJ Envy and Charlamagne Tha God asked Harris about that. Harris pushed back. “I’m black, and I’m proud of being black.

The GOP Majority Leader in the Senate persuaded President Donald Trump to not veto the GOP’s flawed border security bill by promising to back a national emergency construction of border walls, according to insider leaks to the establishment media. The Washington Post reported that “Trump had been leaning against supporting the congressional spending bill but relented after several conversations with [Majority Leader Sen. Mitch] McConnell, who then announced his agreement to go along with an emergency declaration.” One reason for Trump’s last-minute opposition is that congressional leaders conducted the negotiations without significant White House involvement.

The two hottest commodities in the Democratic Party are Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Earlier this week, Omar exhibited stunning ignorance in her hostile questioning of Elliott Adams Abrams. Similarly, Ocasio-Cortez has often displayed a surprising lack of knowledge for someone who apparently is a college graduate. Don’t get me started on the “Green New Socialism.” But she outdid herself yesterday. The context was Amazon’s announcement that it would not, after all, build a second corporate headquarters in Long Island City, which I understand is close to, but not within, Ocasio-Cortez’s district.
