Former Vice President Joe Biden’s victories in recent Democratic presidential primaries have been a triumph of taxidermy. So what did we learn, America? First, politics is like real estate. It’s location, location, location. As forceful as Bernie’s vision was, it was in the wrong place: America. Being a socialist in the most successful economy in history is like trying to sell Ben & Jerry’s ice cream in Siberia. America listened to a 78-year-old try to sell a bad idea that’s twice his age. Americans said, “No way.” And the youth vote? It looks like the 50-plus crowd, who pay their bills, make wiser choices. Surprise! Biden is similar to a cardboard contraption that may have structural flaws. At least it’s standing in the right place. Plus, he remembered his pants. Perhaps Democrats who vote for Biden are purchasing a “teardown.” It’s not for the structure. It’s for the land. His pick for vice president may be in charge at some point if he wins. So voting for him is like snapping up a prime lot to build the Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., home, or a Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., castle, or a Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., wigwam. Which is why Democrats want to end this thing before a debate. They know that with each passing week, the weakness of what they’re left with is becoming more apparent. They should’ve blasted the radical leftism of Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., early on, but they liked the look of agreeing with him. He’s going nowhere. “Donald Trump must be defeated, and I will do everything in my power to make that happen,” Sanders said in a speech Wednesday. “On Sunday night, in the first one-on-one debate of this campaign, the American people will have the opportunity to see which candidate is best positioned to accomplish that goal. … I very much look forward to the debate in Arizona with my friend, Joe Biden.” So Democrats had two choices. The “radically wrong,” who reflects the party’s secret socialism, or the conventional codger, who will limp to the finish line to deliver someone younger and new. Like Hillary Clinton! It could work. But if they don’t get Biden prepped and propped before he faces President Trump, it will be like feeding old-growth logs to a wood chipper.
Agreed.. Thanks to Greg Gutfeld for his usual dry wit and sarcasm calling it as he sees it. Bernie is still in the game. But, his campaign is on life support. Really, at this point it’s Joe Biden vs. President Trump. And, if Joe makes the kind of verbal gaffes he’s been making during his campaign on the debate stage with Trump, then Trump will absolutely demolish him. And, Trump won’t hold back or pull punches out of deference to Joe’s age and apparent mental shortcomings. That’s what John McCain, and then later Mitt Romney, did with Obama. They went out of their way to be overly civil and nice, so as to avoid being called “racist.”…and look where it got them. Trump won’t make the same mistake. Joe Biden will bring a butter knife while Trump will bring a tank or self-propelled howitzer.
