Former Vice President Joe Biden remains atop the polls to gain the Democratic nomination for the Presidency in 2020, although he is slipping amidst a ton of gaffes that have many questioning whether he possesses the mental fitness for the position.
Biden’s strategy to maintain his lead is to lean on former President Barack Obama, who remains an incredibly popular figure among Democratic constituents.
During an appearance on “Late Night with Stephen Colbert” on Thursday night, Biden even claimed that he would love to appoint Obama, who proceeded over countless violations of the Constitution while serving as President, to a lifetime post on the Supreme Court.
“Have you called [Obama] for advice [on the campaign]?” Colbert asked. “Would you appoint him to the Supreme Court?”
“Hell yes!” he exclaimed to Colbert smiling ear-to-ear. “[But] I don’t think he’d do it. … He’s fully qualified.”
Biden even gave an overture to Barack’s wife, Michelle, implying that she would be one of his top choices for a Vice Presidential pick if he won the Democratic Party nomination.
“Have you asked Michelle Obama for advice?” Colbert asked Biden.
“Only to be my vice president,” Biden responded. “I mean …”
The crowd exploded in response with applause, but Biden was quick to walk back his comments.
“I’m only joking! Michelle, I’m joking! That was a joke,” Biden said afterward.
The clip can be seen here:
If Biden is joking, it is only because the Obamas want nothing to do with him and his embarrassing candidacy. They have distanced themselves from Biden since they left the White House and refused to endorse his presidential ambitions.
Biden claims that he implored Obama not to endorse him, a laughable claim as he struggles to fend off upstart challengers like Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Bernie Sanders (I-VT) who nip at his heels.
“I asked President Obama not to endorse,” Biden said. “Whoever wins this nomination should win it on their own merits.”
President Donald Trump has pointed out Biden’s weakness in being unable to secure the endorsement of the man whose ticket he appeared on during two successful and historic presidential elections.
“How he doesn’t get President Obama to endorse him, there has to be some reason why he’s not endorsing him,” Trump said. “He was the vice president. They seemed to have gotten along. President Obama not endorsing him is rather… a big secret.”
“Then he goes and lies and says, ‘I asked the president not to endorse me’… give me a break,” Trump added.
If Biden is unable to convince Obama into getting behind him, he will likely suffer his third failed attempt at obtaining the presidency, having already lost in the Democratic primaries after receiving very little support in 1988 and 2008.
“Moderate” Democrat Senator Joe Manchin Wants Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz Removed From the Senate
So much for moderation and unity…
Conventional wisdom can often be misleading and at times dangerous if we believe in it too strongly.
Take for example West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. He is constantly marketed as the Democrats’ most moderate Senator. There is a grain of truth to this. Manchin has publicly stated that he opposes ending the filibuster and has also poured cold water on $2,000 stimulus checks. But that’s where the moderation ends.
Manchin is now saying that the Senate should entertain the idea of expelling Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) by using the 14th Amendment over their recent decision to challenge the Electoral College results.
On PBS’s Firing Line, Manchin said the Senate should look into the option after right-wing activists stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Manchin is of the opinion that President Donald Trump and Senators like Hawley and Cruz “incited” these demonstrators.
“That should be a consideration,” Manchin stated. “He understands that. Ted’s a very bright individual, and I get along fine with Ted, but what he did was totally outside of the realm of our responsibilities or our privileges.”
According to the 14th Amendment, no elected official “shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”
Hyped up leftist pundits believe that the 14th amendment is applicable to Cruz and Hawley due to how they allegedly “incited” the riot by talking about electoral fraud and pointing out electoral irregularities.
“I’m totally convinced it was done because of political reasons. This was all politically motivated. This was calculated,” declared Manchin. “I believe that all my colleagues truly made a decision that was politically best for them and expedient for them. It was not what they believed to be true or false.”
Unquestionably, Manchin is an establishment hack through and through. He may have reasonable views on gun policy, in part due to West Virginia’s strong gun culture, but Manchin is still a member of the D.C. swamp. His recent statements demonstrate this. Republican nationalists should relieve him of the burden of holding public office in 2024.
