A new report from Politico suggests that former President Barack Obama has been less than thrilled about Joe Biden’s presidential campaign, at times speaking negatively of his own Vice President and questioning Biden’s capacity to campaign and govern during the Democratic Primary.
The article sources several anonymous Democratic Party figures who recount incidences in which the former President spoke poorly of Biden.
“Don’t underestimate Joe’s ability to f–k things up,” one Democratic insider claims to have heard from Obama.
The 44th President also spoke of what he saw as Biden’s diminishing appeal to the Democratic electorate, while mentioning his own declining brand with Democratic primary voters. “And you know who really doesn’t have it? Joe Biden,” he said of synergy with Democratic voters.
President Obama was also outright cold to the notion of Joe Biden running for President in 2016, working behind the scenes to secure a coronation for Hillary Clinton. The President’s political confidantes had greatly favored the idea of electing a first female president over another “white Irish Catholic guy.”
The report also indicates that some Biden operatives were offended by Obama’s endorsement of Joe Biden, considering it to be far less enthusiastic than his endorsement of Clinton. Obama had called Hillary Clinton the most qualified person ever to run for the presidency, glowing language he declined to use in his endorsement of Biden.
If Biden wins the election, it’s probably only a short matter of time until the Democratic Party decides he’s not politically useful anyone and begins the initiative to substitute Kamala Harris in as the new President.
Iowa Certifies Republican Congressional Candidate as Winner by SIX VOTES
The closest congressional election in decades.
The Iowa State Board of Canvass voted on Monday to certify a Republican congressional candidate as the winner of an election for the state’s 2nd district, with a recount leaving Mariannette Miller-Meeks up on Democrat Rita Hart by a mere six votes.
The final standing result for the election of Iowa’s 2nd congressional district leaves Miller-Meeks with 196,964 votes, and Hart with 196,568 votes. Miller-Meeks’ margin of victory had stood at 47 votes before a mandatory recount, dwindling to a final lead of a half dozen. The election is slated to become the closes congressional race in the United States since 1984, and the closest in Iowa since 1916.
Hart is expected to legally challenge the vote after Monday’s certification. A GOP victory in the Democrat-leaning swing district would be the 14th Republican pickup this year, significantly eroding the Democrat majority in the House of Representatives.
“While the race is extraordinarily close, I am proud to have won this contest and look forward to being certified as the winner,” said Miller-Meeks, an Iowa State Senator representing Ottumwa on Saturday when declaring victory. “It is the honor of a lifetime to be elected to serve the people of eastern and southern Iowa. Iowans are tenacious, optimistic and hardworking, and I will take those same attributes to Washington, D.C., on their behalf.”
The recount process had proven dramatic, with results of Miller-Meeks’ outstanding lead placed in jeopardy when a recount board identified and counted dozens of absentee ballots that weren’t previously accounted for. It’s likely Hart will litigate in hopes of getting county clerks to count additional ballots that had been ruled unlawful.
As the nation demands answers to allegations of pervasive election misconduct and voter fraud, it’s worth noting that only a handful of ballots can overturn the end result of many local, county, and state elections. Let no illegal ballot infiltrate the final count, and let no legal vote go uncounted.
