Hey all:

If Joe Biden had run 4 years ago, he would be President.

Time has come & gone though.  The Democrats (DNC) I don't think will allow it now.

Rumors that he is already a zombie already were exaggerated as he became somewhat alive during the last debate.
From the retirement home Trio - Donald, Bernie and Joe, he is my favorite (or least despised). Tulsi looks match better though, especially when she sweats a little.

I Like Tulsi's foreign policy. She loses me on everything else. I don't think Joe has a chance. The idea seems to be he will try to sound as much like Obama as possible and therefore draw all the previous voters to his base. I could see Corey Booker potentially getting the nomination. Although he is pretty much an admitted rapist who got ahead of the curve by saying "sorry" in a school paper. I think Kamala is completely finished...her track record and policies are terrible. Same goes for Warren, Bernie, Beto and Buttigige (his lack of separation of church and state worry me). Then there is Andrew Yang "An Asian who is good at math" ; who seemingly can't do the math on his own policies correctly. But his heart is in the right place  :P. Some of those other guys like Mr. Montana baffle me. They sound like left leaning republicans on a lot of their stances.

If they choose to go with Joe it's simply amazing. Didn't the democratic party want to get away from "old white men"? The guy is on stage talking about policies from the 70s!

Is it just me or is Michael Bennet the presidential version of Bill Murray?

I find it strange that 0bama tried to talk Biden, that he shouldn't run2020.


Quote
According to the Times, 0bama reportedly tried to gently nudge the former veep from entering the 2020 field during one of several chats the friends had ahead of Biden announcing his candidacy in April.

“You don’t have to do this, Joe, you really don’t,” 0bama reportedly told Biden.

"
When they were done, Mr. Obama offered a pointed reminder, according to two people with knowledge of his comments:

Win or lose, they needed to make sure Mr. Biden did not “embarrass himself” or “damage his legacy” during the campaign."

https://www.spin.com/2019/08/obama-warned-biden-staff-dont-embarrass-himself/
Because he´s worried about his legacy...

That sounds like a BS. More likely he is trying to make it easier to moochelle enter the race.

Its not really a secret Obama thinks Biden is a putz, but saw him as the necessary establishment white guy he needed to round out his ticket in 08. By second term, Biden wasn't really needed anymore.

Its also not much of a secret Obamas preference is for Koomala Harris.

I vividly remember watching the vice-presidential debate in 2012 and recalled it reading your post as, to me, 2012 appears to have been a missed opportunity. During the debate and in closing remarks, Mr. Paul Ryan gave what could be considered incomplete answers but the answers contained seeds of reform. In the same remarks, Mr. Joe Biden offered peace of mind.

After listening to the conclusion, I wondered: "How can you win an election with such a Zombie answer?"
Conclusion: I have poor ability to predict election results. But sometimes zombies win.

I'll criticize his ideas all day long, but I have nothing negative to say about his enthusiasm.  Especially at his age.  Too bad he's so wrong.

I'd agree with his criticisms but I'd say he's about 50/50 in terms of realistic solutions. His "wall street trading tax" for example is simply unrealistic. But, actually enforcing our tax law on the wealthiest corporations and individuals is a good idea.

I know this got some publicity, but just imagine if Trump had recently said this.  Do you think there is a chance in hell that you wouldn't have heard about it?  Biden is the Dan Quayle of the Democratic party and the press just never mentions it.  Do some searching for dumb Biden quotes, you can read all day.

Yes, there is always that.  :)

Although I find Trump more amusing, because he make the press go ballistic, whereas the press ignores anything Biden says and does, and pretends they didn't hear or see it.  "Nope I didn't hear another racist comment or see him with his hands all over a little girl...."

If a president says something crazy and no one reports it, is it even entertaining?

Biden probably is the Democrats best shot - a guy who will probably do more or less nothing, if elected. Warren went loony when she proposed forbidding fracking (if not before) which would probably lose her PA and who knows what other state. Bernie is the Ron Paul of the left and won’t be elected either.

I support taken a stab on climate in a measured way, but quite frankly, I don’t think the general public is too keen on spending tens of trillions on a huge green deal and such. Fixing aging infrastructure and inflating health care costs and education would probably give a better chance of getting the election sealed.

Yes.  It is probably for the best anyway.  Both Trump and any of the D's will be a disaster on both foreign policy and domestically.  In different ways, but both horrible.  But with Ruth Bader Ginsburg's health status, I'd rather have Trump nominating someone to the Supreme Court than any of the the Democrats.

Not only will a Trump nominee be far more likely to protect the 2nd Amendment, but with the left's current disdain for the 1st Amendment I think a constitutional conservative would be better from almost every angle.    I know there is abortion to worry about, but Roe-v-Wade isn't going to be repealed. And even in the worse case if it were, only a handful of southern states in the bible belt would change their abortion laws.

Biden looks like a spent force. Physically he looks tired, displays an impotent rage, a mere ghost of his former self, looks shriveled & diminutive, doesn't show a fighting spirit.

Warren is hitting her stride, with vigor, passion and on message. I've never seen Biden hit hard on Trump's corruption. Biden looks like male version of Hillary. Where's the sense of outrage?

I wont be surprised if Warren became D's nominee.

I'm not a fan of Biden (see all of my above posts), but I hope he's the nominee.  On the off chance that Trump loses, Biden will do the least harm out of the bunch of them*.   It will be pretty much business as usual with him.  He's the only one in the bunch who isn't stock raving mad.

Why is banning fracking considered "loony"? I would not let my family live anywhere close to anywhere where there's any sort of fracking activity.

After Trump, Warren would seem like a divine voice of rationality with the economic wisdom rivaled only by the other warren.  Seriously, compared to the total shit storm that we got now? Common.

Have you ever been on a fracking pad or near one? I have been on many as in HS for a summer job I drove all over North Central PA in a Jeep Wrangler taking ground water samples. The amount of precautions they take are extreme. If anyone ever screws up on the pad or spills some chemical etc. they are generally immediately fired then a long arduous cleanup process begins. I'd be willing to bet there is more pollution in your local Walmart parking lot from leaking engines and exhaust than on a well pad.

"Why is banning fracking considered "loony"? I would not let my family live anywhere close to anywhere where there's any sort of fracking activity."

It is amazing the level of propaganda that has been going on. By the way, the original anti-fracking film was funded by Russia so hopefully it tells you something. Lots of lies in there.

It is also very interesting to hear from a European who would not let his family live in a farm field with an oil well drilled 2,000 feet below ground but, who would let his family live by highly poluted rivers, diesel infested air, next to a nuclear reactor and such dense population that any dangerous, untreatable flu would cause all of them to die.

Smelling kids, or the weird speech about his leg hair?  If it's smelling kids, just google it there are hundreds of videos and photos of him being creepy with children, usually involving him sniffing them as he rubs or touches   them inappropriately while they have horrified looks on their faces. If it's the leg hair speech only Joe knows.

His best chance is to keep his mouth shut and hope that the other candidates all collapse by shooting themselves in the foot. If he were to be elected, it would mean 4 years of doing basically nothing, which actually would be an improvment from the current situation.
