OPINION| Mark Sidney| I have to admit that I am surprised that Joe Biden is still hanging around, even if it is by the skin of his teeth.
Biden is not only old, white and male (not the favorite traits of most Democrats from what I can tell) he also has a history of …
over the top gaffs …
Inappropriately touching women and kids …
family/business ethics issues:
Joe Biden seems to be the epicenter of the Democrat scandal mill. According to Peter Schweitzer it was not just Hunter and Joe who were up involved in shady business dealings while Joe was Obama’s VP.
‘1. James Biden’s firm received $1.5 billion in government contracts, despite having no experience, during the Obama administration’
‘2. Frank Biden is linked to projects receiving millions in taxpayer loans from the Obama Administration, despite having no experience.’
‘3. Hunter Biden’s firms scored business deals with people and entities tied to the governments of Russia, China, and Kazakhstan, and those deals “reportedly scored him hundreds of millions of dollars.”’
… and much, much more.
Well, now it looks like Joe is finally collapsing under the weight of his past actions.
The Gateway Pundit reported: ‘The former vice president on Tuesday suddenly announced that he was bailing from New Hampshire, where polls show him running in fourth or even fifth place. Biden said he will leave right away and not spend primary night in the state. Instead, he’s heading to South Carolina to “headline a newly scheduled kick-off rally in the state he’s long considered his campaign firewall,” Fox News reports.
“We’re going to head to South Carolina tonight,” Biden told reporters. “And I’m going to Nevada… we’ve got to look at them all.”
After his dismal finish in Iowa, where he finished fourth, things in New Hampshire looks just as bad, if not worse. The day before the Granite State’s primary, Biden was running fourth in most polls (and fifth in a couple). He knows he’s not in good shape, saying at the last Democratic debate in Manchester, N.H.: “I took a hit in Iowa and I’ll probably take a hit here.”
That may well be a dramatic understatement. Most of the latest polls were taken days ago, when a quarter of the state’s voters claimed to be undecided. Many have since made up their minds, and they aren’t breaking Biden’s way. That’s the real reason he’s bailing.’
Fox News went on to report that “The campaign confirmed Biden is now canceling his originally scheduled appearance at a primary night party in Nashua, N.H., and will be in South Carolina instead. The New Hampshire party will go on as scheduled without him.”
With Biden looking like he is going to end up out of the race, IMHO, it should be interesting to see if the DS tires to ride ‘Wall Street Pete’ all the way to 2020 victory.
I am still of the mind that the real Democrat nominee is yet to reveal themsleves … what do you think, who will it be?
