Biden Bashing

I like Joe Biden. I think he’s a cool guy and all. I went to school and was friends with his late son Beau. My father is good friends with him.

But guess what? I 100% do not want him to run this time around. He would probably be an OK president, but you know that I don’t want someone who is an establishment person, someone who is a centrist. Joe Biden is not a candidate for our times. He hasn’t been for quite a while. He is very much everything that I didn’t like about Hillary: Pro-Iraq war, connected to giant money interests, a DC player. Medhi Hasan lays it out quite well in his piece “Joe Biden Is Hillary Clinton 2.0 — Democrats Would Be Mad to Nominate Him

The Democratic establishment is all about him, he polls very well (due probably to name recognition), but guess what? He will get crushed by Donald Trump.

And that’s not counting the fact that women are kind of skeeved by him and he’s had a few credible accusations about inappropriate behavior. If you look into his record in the Senate you will find someone that was not really too good on woman’s issues over the years. Remember Anita Hill for example? There are dozens of reasons why women should not support him. Many are outlined in this incredibly thorough look at him.

Here is what I want to say about Joe. If he jumps into this, he’s going to be a terrible distraction and he’s going to take away a ton of the glorious progressive energy in the race. If he doesn’t loose the nomination, he will loose in 2020. I’m sure of it and you should make yourself aware and be sure of it too!

  1. He would definitely be an ‘OK’ president but… he was smelling me!!! I think these are grandfatherly expressions of affection. Sweet man I’d bet. He probably has to get with the times now that no hugging, touching is taught is school though. Also think only an establishment pol has the background to pick up all the pieces once Trump is gone. His changing viewpoints are a sign of the times, and change with time. Anita Hill would be so supported and believed today…but back then ideas about sexual harassment were still evolving. I’m glad he’s speaking on it …better than these other guys who never budge in their past beliefs rooted in inequality, bigotry and prejudice .
