@Lash,
I just get tired of you fake geniuses knocking other people for kid crap that doesn't add anything to the conversation. I sure as hell hope you don't pass your attitude to your students.

@Sturgis,

In other Bidenish news, while Biden continues sitting pretty (though less so than he once did), it seems many Obama financial supporters are shoving him aside in favor of newcomer Pete Buttigieg.

Joe Biden dominates...Pete Buttigieg makes inroads with Obama's elite bundlers

I really like him, I think he is smart and articulate in a laid back common sense way that appeals to me. At the beginning I thought he wouldn't have a chance in rust belt states, but, he might. Just wish his numbers would go up.

@RABEL222,
Fortunately, none of my students has fronted an obvious lie about having an unusually high IQ as you do on occasion. I’ll call you on it if I choose.

I’m neither a fake genius nor a real one.

@Lash,
Lady your ability to reconstruct what I say is rivaled by the conservatives on this site. If yyou were able to understand English you would see that rather than brag about my intelligence I admit I am not the smartest poster on this site. My references to IQ were because some of your friends were position crap about 170 iq's. This misquoting of others is tantamount to lieing. I partially agree with your last sentence.

I believe the Biden campaign may be more or less over. The pack of hungry socialists below him in the polls will continue to increase the venom in their criticisms of his actions and political positions, both past and recent, and so far he hasn't shown much ability to fend them off or retaliate without exposing himself to more of the gaffes for which he has long been famous. My impression is that most of the far left wing progressive media will support their efforts in this.

Finally in the very unlikely event that he gets the nomination I believe he will not compete well with Trump, and I suspect a growing fraction of the Democrat Party leaders who formerly supported his candidacy has already reached that conclusion.

A few stunning victories in various state Primaries could arguably change all this, However I see no indication that such events will occur.

‪Joe Biden, speaking at a fundraiser with his donors, as reported in The Hill today: “There’s an awful lot of really good Republicans out there.” C’mon everyone. You know Joe meant to say: “There’s a good lot of really awful Republicans out there.” #AltJoe #JoeNo #CentristsLose ‬

@georgeob1,
It’s not venomous to remind people of what someone did and said previously.

@Lash,
I don't think that any of his rivals for the Democrat nomination seeks to improve Biden's chances of a win in the Primary and so far none has hesitated to criticize him in ways that may leave lasting damage in the final election if he is their candidate.

Sounds fairly venomous to me. However, it's only a word.

@georgeob1,
Are you considering a vote for Biden?

Regardless, I think primary contenders must draw distinctions between their policies and those of others. Nothing untoward about that.

No I'm not. I have always seen him as an empty headed opportunist.

Biden loves them, though. He said: “There’s an awful lot of really good Republicans out there.” Smile

The following can't be explained away as a gaffe. I think Biden is now toast and should bow out.

Quote:
I only have two political heroes. I have one hero who was my dad, but I have two political heroes were Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy. My senior semester they were both shot and killed. Imagine what would have happened if, God forbid, Barack Obama had been assassinated after becoming the de facto nominee. What would have happened in America?


https://www.nytimes.com/2019/08/23/us/politics/joe-biden-obama.html

What is he trying to say? I honestly don't get it. What I do get is that it would have been an absolute tragedy and discourged people of color from ever trying to be part of the government. But what is the deal with the crass speculating on it?

@Olivier5,
That gaffe I see nothing wrong with. There was a time when bipartisanship wasn't a dirty word and people from both sides actually worked to get things done even if they didn't agree completely with one another.

I don’t read it that way at all. All I see is him saying is that to imagine what it must have felt like for him as a young man learning of those assassinations, just think how it would have felt if Obama had been killed.

@snood,
Perhaps that was his intent, I don't really know to be honest. Obama becoming the first black president was such an encouraging moment for both our nation and for minorities. I hate to speculate what an assassination would have encouraged. Plus it sort of makes an object of Obama as a man and President.

That's been obsolete for almost two decades now.

@Olivier5,
Perhaps with the high profile republicans currently in power, but there had been plenty of GOP's who have quit who were more open to working back and forth. They have since left, but there might be a few more who might live in purple states who would be willing to work with a democrat president and a democrat congress. If there are, it is worth the effort IMO. Back in the day Biden was talking about, there was more friendliness between republicans and democrats in congress.

@revelette1,
Biden wasn't talking about a bye-gone era; sadly enough, he was speaking about nowaday republicans...
