I saw Joe about blow a gasket when asked about his son's dealings in Ukraine. So now everyone knows his Achilles heel. I'm sure his opponents on the left will be utilizing that weakness.
Well, be careful. Mr. Biden has not had an easy life. One son dies of a brain tumor. Wife and daughter killed in an automobile accident. Another son with serious drug and alcohol addictions - the son with the Ukraine connections was also kicked out if the Navy for cocaine use.It is very possible that Mr. Biden has corruption issues. Certainly parts of his story don't match up and his son's financial success is more than a bit counterintuitive.That all said, it is just as likely that the reaction you saw was of a man in a high pressure business whose family life has had more than its fair share of tragedy and a son he is trying to protect. Understandable and it would be all to the good of the country if the public dealt more in facts than in subjective impressions.
Subjective impressions? Like Joe taking on Corn Pop and threatening him with wrapping a chain around his neck? About telling the world that he wants to take Trump behind the school and beat him up? Remember when Obama tried to keep Joe behind closed doors, for fear of what dumb thing he'd say next? I don't care about his past life. He handled that question from the press in the worst possible way. He should have just given the Hillary Cackle.
To be sure, Mr. Biden is in many ways his own worst enemy. However, and I say this as a man who is not his party but who has worked in politics for over 30 years, I tell you now the kind of pitiless stridency and harshness to your approach will do nothing for our politics and less for the country.As Mr. Dooley famously said, "Politics ain't beanbag," but when it becomes the war of all against all, denying the very humanity of the other side, you are setting the stage for ruin.To quote the father of conservatism, Edmund Burke, “Men are qualified for civil liberty in exact proportion to their disposition to put moral chains upon their own appetites. ... Society cannot exist unless a controlling power upon will and appetite be placed somewhere, and the less of it there is within, the more there must be without. It is ordained in the eternal constitution of things that men of intemperate minds cannot be free. Their passions forge their fetters.”Mr. Biden may not be the best exemplar. However, if he is not, we should not seek to imitate him. "There is no spectacle more frightful than civilization without mercy."
Thanks for the links, but I didn't really think it would matter. I mean, unless Biden was just a ventriloquist dummy during the RT clip, the video pretty much speaks for itself. I might use your video for an update, but I don't think it will change anyone's minds about what happened.
I agree with you 100%. I feel really bad for him, and I wish he'd make up an excuse to drop out of the race.
I don't like him, but yet I'm embarrassed for him. He just needs to throw in the towel.
He's a horrifying advertisement for term limits.
Beating Trump like a drum is not a reason to run for president. So vain.

The MSM NEEDS Biden to sail off into the sunset, because he's senile as fuck. But I prefer a different narration of the story..Have you ever watched...I think Trump IS the Count. I think he'll be picking them off one-by-one.
So because Biden is running for office, he becomes immune from his past crimes. LOLStrange how all this works.
In their eyes probably :p the whole thing is a clusterfuck. Which begs the question, what is the theatre meant to be distracting us from?
I just think that Trump is giving 'em a taste of their own medicine. Now that uncle Joe is all flustered, we will probably be seeing his gaffe machine working overtime! Then Trump will go after Pocahontas and ruffle her feathers.
Yeah I don’t see Warren having the spine to take on Trump. Tulsi Gabbard was their best shot as a veteran and has at least stood by her values. Unlike Warren, Biden etc which are bought and paid for. Andrew Yang is another that could have brought some good points to bear since he could have challenged Truno on his populist approach.
It's kind of a paradox, because the two best candidates (Tulsi & Andrew) seem to have the least chance of winning. I'm a Trump fan, but I'd be OK if he lost to Tulsi or Andrew. But I sure as hell don't want any of those other turds in office.
Yeah, it’s quite the mess really, the dnc has somewhat neutered itself by suppressing its progressive candidates when that’s what the voter base actually wants.
I agree. Biden is an a-hole.
Ah, but will his Democratic opponents on stage just cheer him on and move on? lol
Yes. If anything it helps him in the dem primary tbh.The dem base sees the story as Biden was cleared, Trump attempted to have foreign governments come out with a different result and threatened military aid to a country being invaded by Russia for not doing so. They want to impeach Trump over this, and see Biden as the victim who presumably Trump fears.Which narrative is hitting independents more? We will see, though I have suspicions, but who knows.As far as I can tell, Biden being in trouble isn't even on the radar on the left, while the right has a mix of fighting trump impeachment, did he do something wrong, and its only the most extreme partisans who see it as a chance to go on the attack, but we'll see as more comes out.
I'm not talking about Biden's base. I'm talking about his Democratic political opponents. WarrenBernieetc
Right, but what i'm saying is: this being bad for Biden isn't even on the RADAR of democrats at this point. There's zero discussion of 'does this hurt Biden'. The democrat base is taking it as a starting point that Biden didnt' do anything wrong, and Trump did. Any democrat trying to smear biden would be immediately denounced of using made up Trump talking points that the base literally wants to impeach Trump over.But I can't even see any discussion in mainline democrat or centrist circles about 'how to defend' the biden Ukraine thing. They don't even perceive there's anything to defend. By contrast, there's a lot of 'how bad is this/whatabout/it wasn't exactly quid pro quo' defense happening on the republican side. It's only the MOST extreme anti-elite groups who see this as bad for both, potentially. That may change and mainstream republicans may seize that narrative and go on the attack, but that hasn't happened yet.
I bet you a thousand dollars that I'm right. The Democratic candidates will attack Joe over ANYTHING they can to win the brass ring. When Hillary was running against Obama, she said he wasn't fit to be president. Trump is the LEAST of Biden's worries. He's got to lock horns with Kamala, and she is ruthless.
LMFAO. Kamala is done. She stumbled and couldn't gain any traction after debate 1. She's sunk back into the field of single digit candidates, and sure as hell isn't getting an Iowa bump.It's almost certainly going to be Warren, Biden or Sanders. Sanders could maybe very, very carefully push on this, but I doubt it. The democrats discussion on this is about whether or not to push impeachment. I'm not sure how to make this clearer: they think Trump was pushing Ukraine to find Biden guilty of stuff when he didn't do anything wrong. Using that as something to attack Biden on in the dem debates would be suicide for a democrat. Unless a bunch of stuff suddenly comes out showing Biden did wrong that isn't already part of the record (which cleared him), the 'Ukraine thing' is not hurting him.The only leftists I've heard see it negatively on biden is some hard left sanders supporters … and they were complaining that if anything the dems would rally around biden for this.
Thank you for saying that. I thought I was losing my mind. I can't believe how many tards are saying there's no scandal, when Joe, himself, is basically admitting to it!
Sleepy Creepy Pedo Joe doesn't have to worry about Trump bringing him down... The other Dems on stage will tear him a new one...
It was a while ago when Biden did that, but now his crime is shielded by the fact that he's running for election. Trump needs to lay low and wait until Biden drops out of the race. Then he should have Biden and his son investigated thoroughly.
Trump? Lay Low? Yeah, that'll be the day.
He laid low on Hillary. But if she would have jumped in the race, then he'd pounce.
Not really, "Crooked Hillary" "Lock Her Up" And with his own scandal with the access Hollywood tape, he addressed it.
Saying and doing are to completely different things.
That's true, though there wasn't much he could directly do as a private citizen. But to me laying low is the polar opposite of seeking out the spotlight, and that's what I meant by he can't lay low.
He's anything BUT a private citizen now, but I get what you mean. :)
Being that Joe bragged about it on tape, I'd say the accusations are true. And I agree that there should be no subverting elections, and that's why I think Obama and Hillary should be investigated.
I’ll go with that. And Since Trump was recorded on the call in his attempt to have a foreign government subvert the election, you must support his impeachment too
I'll support impeachment when I agree with the crime. I don't see investigating Biden and his son as a crime. And if Dems want to enlist the help of foreign governments to reveal a crime that Trump committed, I surely hope the do.
I would pay good money to be ringside at a Trump VS Biden debate!
He doesn't remember what he had for breakfast.
He doesn't remember he had breakfast
I was just going to say that before you beat me to it.
he's excited he got invited to a y2k party
But he was late because his computer reverted back to the year of 1305.
But he got distracted for a couple millennia after 3 wise men walked by his cottage looking for their baby lord
But out of desperation, he asked to borrow a camel!
From queen Elizabeth and better white and then saw a new invention, sliced bread
But then Joe wondered which side of the sliced bread was the upside and which was the downside.
This coming after last week where he thought the blue fire was cold
I still remember when they took his wings away...
I'd be worried he'd see all this but I dont think his rotary can display it
But he once kicked Corn Pop's ass!
He also can't see why kids love cinnamon toast crunch
😐😐😐😐😐 what 😂🤣😂🤣
Joe is my uncle and he just text me that. He very much wants to have a gopher, but they keep biting him.
Well you gotta remove teeth or train better, we here though shoot on sight due to infestation
I admire your optimism, but I just don't see another Trump coming along. I think that in 2024 America is going the socialist route.
Will see, but about all the Republicans I've heard are smart. Not just Trump.
And yet his polling rate is neck and neck with Pocahontas.
Yes, it is neck in neck with Pocajontas. As far as I’m concerned, this proves my point.
That they're both on the top of the heap?
And for some reason the woke people never cared.
That's because a 2 year investigation came up with nothing. Biden admits to his scandal.
If you're talking about Trumps phone call, that was long after what Biden did.
Yes, but both are interconnected as the one brings up the other.
True, but Joe's scandal was brushed under the carpet, and Trump's was pounced on. I hope they're both investigated and brought to justice.
You know something's fishy when they started talking about impeachment before he ever took office.
You know it
They screwed Bernie last time, and he just rolled over and took it. Then he goes on to endorse Hillary! lol
Trump has his own Ukrainian scandal. I'm talking about Joe's Ukrainian scandal. The Anita Hill scandal didn't stop him from being the Veep for 8 years, so I doubt that'll have any effect now.
Oh no, we can't have Tulsi die, she's the only one willing to call out our regime change wars.
Well, it's one of two scandals.
There is only one scandal. Impeachment.
Impeachment of Biden?
Nope. He's not the president. Eye on the prize.
I thought this question was about Biden? Did you change the question?
Fair enough. No, there is no Biden scandal.
If you tell yourself that enough times, it becomes real.
Right back at ya:)
Nothing will happen to him. The media turned a blind eye to him touching all those kids and women. The left are pushing hard for this guy no matter what.
I just wish he understood that.
I would be very careful about using the word, "think" in a GAG answer. You've proven that that word is above your pay grade.
What u think trump is a good president really?
