Name recognition is a funny thing. As with HRC, these people enter the race as a "known" figure, polling high, but the they have nowhere to go but down. They often fail because they spend so much time simply trying to hang on to the lead by being as noncommittal and oatmealish as possible.

Anything to divert the unsubstantial people from real issues the corporate state does not want to confront.

Biden shot himself in the foot and blundered his way out of his past two presidential attempts. My prediction has been that history will repeat itself. So as not to flood the forum with repetitive threads, this thread can be used to track his blunders and gaffes this time around. This for new gaffes and blunders.

Here is one from today’s news:

Biden downplays Chinese economic competition, drawing criticism from Republicans and Sanders
Yeah. I've gotta say: Those are some amazingly dumb comments by Joe Biden. China is THE major threat to American global hegemony in the 21st century, and on current trends, it seems QUITE possible that China could be the scientific and technological leader of the world as early as 2030.

Because America is slumbering under Donald Trump, a man whose thinking is stuck in the 19th century world of coal mines and steel factories, while Mr. Xi Jinping understands that that what is important in the 21st century are things like deep learning algorithms, neural networks, quantum computers, artificial intelligence, advanced robotics, nanotechnology, genetic engineering, synthetic biology, and etc. and etc.

And now it seems that Joe Biden is every bit as much of an intellectual fossil as Donald Trump is.

BOTH of those guys are WAY too old for America in the 2020's.

Send them BOTH to an old folks' home.

Your point about Hillary is accurate. She lost the election by just trying to hang on to her perceived lead. Trump was ripping her apart and she just hoped it would all blow over.

Not really a gaffe but apparently some union dems are not pleased with Biden and his views on trade.

Many old-school Democratic voters believe free-trade deals have been disastrous, closing factories and shrinking American wages. Trump turned that opposition to his advantage, winning over some Democrats by bashing NAFTA and TPP. “It used to be that Republicans were the Wall Street candidates. With Hillary, she had these strong Wall Street relationships, and President Trump sort of flipped that dynamic, where he was embraced more by blue-collar workers,” Lanza said. “Biden is no different. Delaware is a corporation haven, and Biden has been carrying the weight for those people his entire career.”

Democrats itching to take down Biden over free-trade past
