and so , Trumptman, that all happened before your namesake was elected . Voters know about Biden along with the good and the bad. Kinda interesting how Trump , Fox News and Trump supporters are attacking Biden . What's up with that ? If he's such a flawed candidate wouldn't you want him running against Trump?
So like so many of your conclusions.... way off base.....
Voters have known about Biden and the good and bad with him which is why in his prior two attempts to run president he didn’t go far at all and went down early including 2008 when last ran. He came in fifth in Iowa and dropped out soon after.
Here is what Biden has done.... got elected really early and very young to the Senate from a very small state.
He then stayed there forever and ran for President about once every twenty years (1988, 2008 now 2020) and in the first two instances went down very early in either a bit scandalous or gaffe ridden manner.
Depending upon the list his gaffe about Obama being “clean” and “articulate” was top five gaffes of 2008.
The good will for Biden as a VP was largely because he offset Obama nicely. Obama was stern, disciplined and would deliver his speeches from the teleprompter with no mistakes but few digressions and little humor. Biden was the opposite. He was grabby, loud, a hugger and with a smile would let the occasional curse slip or empty threat or say the thing many of us wold mutter under our breath. These types of statesmen’s ....you know like how all 7/11’s are staffed by people of middle eastern descent were tolerated because again... he brought some humanity, warmth and humor to Obama and so it was a nice contrast. Obama was the stern adult, Biden the crazy uncle.
So what happens when the crazy uncle isn’t contrasted against the stern adult...
You just get a crazy uncle trying to lead the free world....
We already have that in Trump.
So the point is that it is a bad contrast....
Democrats.... we have a Trump only older, whiter, crazier and with no accomplishment real or imagined.
It’s sort of shocking how Democrats can’t see this problem.
One more issue... even if Trump’s age and views made him sound dated, old, out of touch etc... he could at least claim that those views were in the private sector.
Biden on the other hand has an extensive and long record to mine for all manner of opposition research. We are talking about a guy in public office so long he could oppose busing, could question Anita Hill, etc.
It isn’t just that was the past and this is the present for Biden....he literally is the past.
Trump has crazy hair.... Biden has actual hair plugs and transplants.....
I could go on and on....
BTW the Democrats have a huge field and lots of new faces, new ideas and honestly some pretty smart people they could pick that would create real optic problems for Trump.
The best argument for Biden is that he might out-Trump Trump which is just laughable.
