Democratic Party presidential contender Joe Biden announced on Monday that he would put a Republican as his vice presidential candidate in a hypothetical race against President Donald Trump in 2020.
“Our 21-year-old son said the other night, ‘I wonder if Joe Biden would consider choosing a Republican as a running mate,” a woman said to Biden while addressing him at a New Hampshire town hall on Dec. 30.
“The answer is I would, but I can’t think of one now,” Biden said in response. “Let me explain that. You know there’s some really decent Republicans that are out there still, but here’s the problem right now … they’ve got to step up.”
Biden has talked largely in platitudes regarding his potential vice presidential choice, hoping to placate the growing radical base of the Democratic Party by paying lip service to identity politics.
“Whoever I would pick for vice president, and there’s a lot of qualified women, there’s a lot of qualified African-Americans. There really truly are. There’s a plethora of really qualified people. Whomever I would pick were I fortunate enough to be your nominee, I’d pick somebody who was simpatico with me, who knew what I, what my priorities were and knew what I wanted to,” Biden said in Exeter on Monday. “We could disagree on tactic, but strategically we’d have to be in the exact same page.”
The liberal media has been pushing the meme that Biden is the one Democratic candidate that Republicans would consider over President Trump in next year’s election:
Some Democrats have been warning the party not to obsess over these potential swing voters, arguing that electability calculations about mythical undecided moderates are futile at this moment of extreme political polarization.
But for many Biden supporters, those voters are their Republican-leaning relatives and friends. And their perspectives are an increasingly prominent consideration as the Iowa caucuses near.
“I think he could get the independents and moderate Republicans who refuse to vote for Donald Trump,” said Bailey Smith, 27, a leader in Atlantic, Iowa’s business community and an undecided voter who attended a Biden campaign event on Sunday. Asked whether she had any moderate Republicans in mind, she replied, “My dad.”
It’s a dynamic that helps explain why, despite Mr. Biden’s series of missteps and uneven debate performances, many Democratic voters still believe the former vice president would stand the best chance against President Trump in a general election, polls show.
That’s a message Mr. Biden’s top surrogates are sounding at every turn, citing specific potential swing voters in the process.
“I always say that in Mount Pleasant, Iowa, if I didn’t have Republican friends, I wouldn’t have had any friends at all growing up,” said Christie Vilsack, the former first lady of Iowa and a prominent Democrat, as she introduced Mr. Biden at a campaign stop here on Saturday night. “Who will appeal to independents? And I want my candidate to be able to appeal to my Republican friends as well.”
Her remarks came just days after Mr. Trump, with his nearly 90 percent approval rating among Republicans, was impeached largely along party lines after he asked a foreign nation to investigate Mr. Biden. Republicans who have long had warm relationships with Mr. Biden defended the president instead.
Biden, the consummate career politician, is largely calling for politics to go back to the pre-Trump status quo. If he is the best the Democrats can do, Trump’s chances for a second term are looking strong in 2020.
REVOLT: Angry Conservatives Threaten to Boycott Georgia Senate Races Unless Full Vote Audit Takes Place
They have had enough of the feckless GOP.
There is a groundswell of grassroots conservatives who are refusing to help the Republican candidates win in the Georgia senate run-off elections unless the state Republican Party gets serious about the recount and vote audit.
Donald Trump Jr., Students for Trump founder Ryan Fournier and American Greatness senior fellow Ned Ryun are trying to head off this anti-GOP revolt at the pass.
That is NONSENSE.

Every GOP voter in Georgia MUST vote for Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue on January 5th.
There is TOO much at stake to not vote.
If we lose the Senate, we lose everything.
— Ryan Fournier (@RyanAFournier) November 23, 2020
Folks, don’t be idiots. Vote for both Loeffler and Perdue. You might not like it, you might even think it’s a crap sandwich. But trust me: it’s a heck of a lot better than whatever you would get with. Democratic Senate run by Schumer. Trust me. https://t.co/gLzDf73oG2

However, enraged conservatives are not having it. They are sick and tired of their elected officials refusing to stand strong and demand electoral accountability in the aftermath of third-world style rigging caused by rapacious and crooked Democrats.
You just told me support the GOP or I’m an idiot then tell me to trust you in the same sentence. When the GOP wakes up and DOES something about election fraud and demands audits in multiple states then I will support them. But they aren’t doing a damn thing but sit on the asses!

Whatever shit storm you think is coming from letting 50 years of communism fester in our society, buckle up and start preparing for it.

Where is the support? I don't see any but capitulation from Chris Christie and others who have given-up. GOP and RNC are such quitters. I hate weakness!!

— Rick V (@RickV_1) November 23, 2020
You expect people to vote using the same mechanism that just stole their vote ? Isn't it the definition of insanity?
— OM (@beachgirlCA) November 23, 2020
This makes ZERO sense. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue are DEEP STATE and CANNOT BE TRUSTED.
True Patriots BOYCOTT the Georgia Runoffs.

Won't back the @GOP when 90% of them refuse to fight for your father who got them elected in the first place. Either the whole party comes together and fights this, or the party dies. Sick of cowards.

Big League Politics has reported on the cavalcade of anomalies that have occurred in Georgia, while the Republicans in charge of the state, led by Gov. Brian Kemp, are content to look the other way and excuse massive fraud:
A Fulton County, Georgia woman is describing handling a “pristine” batch of ballots that were marked “98%” of the time for Joe Biden in election recount duties, describing the suspicious phenomenon in a sworn affidavit.
Susan Voyles identifies herself as a participant in Georgia’s post-election recount in the affidavit, filed in litigation against Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensberger by Trump campaign attorney Lin Wood.
Voyles describes seeing ballots that differed considerably from the other ballots she was entrusted to count in the remix.
Voyles describes the batch of ballots as unusual in their texture and level of handling, and that she estimates 98% of them were cast for Joe Biden. Voyles even speculates that these ballots could’ve been processed through a ballot-marking device!
Voyles earlier described election recount supervisors as tasking them to process ballots in a “selective” fashion. Boxes of absentee ballots were signed by no one, without markings one might expect the Georgia Secretary of State to outfit absentee ballots with.
Another witness describes viewing election workers count 500 straight ballots for Joe Biden, all of which were marked with perfect black bubbles.
Trump campaign attorney Sidney Powell has pledged that the campaign’s legal filing in Georgia will be “biblical,” implying a great deal of evidence in regards to election discrepancies.
The Trump campaign has demanded a new recount after the first one was little more than a perfunctory cherade.
“Today, the Trump campaign filed a petition for recount in Georgia,” the campaign said in a statement on Saturday. “We are focused on ensuring that every aspect of Georgia State Law and the U.S. Constitution are followed so that every legal vote is counted.”
The Republican Party may have a mutiny on their hands if they do not get serious about stopping voter fraud and do so very quickly. With their nation hanging by a thread and the constitution at stake, conservatives have no more tolerance for RINOs among their ranks.
