Biden: 'I'm Running for Three Basic Reasons'
« on: May 14, 2019, 08:40:21 AM »
....hmm... seems like Uncle Joe's platform is running on a FAILED healthcare policy and economy during the Bammy years and going green.   Oh, and he claims that he's going to unite the bat crap crazies with moderates and conservatives.  Yep, Uncle Joe, you are crystal clear!   :rolling:

Biden: 'I'm Running for Three Basic Reasons'


“The fact of the matter is that I'm running for three basic reasons, and I'm going to be very clear about it as I move along and go into great detail as we get down the road here, because this is a marathon," Biden said.

He then listed his three reasons for running:

    I want to restore the soul of this country.

    And secondly, I really want to, quite frankly, rebuild the backbone of this country, this time bringing everyone along, the middle class -- the middle class that built this country.

    And thirdly what I want to do is I want to, and we talked about earlier, unite the country. Folks, I know I get criticized for saying that I think we have to unite the country.

    The truth of the matter is, we can't get anything done in this country without a consensus. That's the way our Constitution is written, that's the way it runs.........

Message to Old Joe and Mayor Pete:  Yes, it is worthwhile to try to unite the country.  But you don't do it by doubling down on identity politics.   You object that "Trump hates and divides".   Well so do the Dems; indeed, they invented this poisonous shtick.

Democratic Presidential Clown Car Update for May 13, 2019

Jim Geraghty notes that Biden is running away with the race and upending lots of assumptions:

    Late yesterday afternoon I raised the possibility that the hype surrounding Pete Buttigieg is peaking. He’s back to modest single digits in most national polls after a quick rise and very few African-Americans are attending his events, even in places such as Orangeburg, S.C. Young, well-educated, ambitious, and articulate, Buttigieg may well be a boutique candidate who mostly appeals to one important but not quite decisive demographic: the kinds of people who end up covering the Democratic presidential primary for major news organizations.

    Since formally announcing his presidential run, Joe Biden has enjoyed leads in national polls of 21, 32, 30, 26, and 24 percentage points ahead of Bernie Sanders. Perhaps this will turn out to be a short-term bump, but the people currently preferring Biden probably feel like they know him well. He’s a familiar and liked face amidst a crowd of strangers.

    Biden doesn’t need the formal endorsement of Barack Obama because he’s already received the clearest de-facto endorsement imaginable: Obama wanted Biden in the Oval Office if he ever died or was incapacitated. Obama effectively made his 2020 presidential endorsement in the summer of 2008.

    And if Biden does become the 2020 Democratic nominee . . . the ramifications will be hilarious. After all the talk of the most diverse group of candidates in American history, and for all the identity-politics obsession gripping the party, the Democratic nominee would be a (very) old, straight, white male. Post-Obama Democratic politics would not be focused on a Generation X or Millennial figure, but (sigh) yet another Baby Boomer.

Also: “For all of the talk of the Democrats’ move towards socialism, the nominee would be a figure from the party’s establishment, who’s done the bidding of Delaware’s banking industry and credit-card companies for most of his career.”

Jonathan Chait on how Biden is proving activists and pundits wrong:

    The poor guy has disregarded all the advice and decided to run anyway. And initial polling has revealed that a large number of Democrats have not left Biden behind at all. He begins the race leading his closest competitors, including early front-runner Bernie Sanders, by as much as 30 points. Perhaps it was the party’s intelligentsia, not Biden, that was out of touch with the modern Democratic electorate.

    The conclusion that Biden could not lead the post-Obama Democratic Party is the product of misplaced assumptions about the speed of its transformation. Yes, the party has moved left, but not nearly as far or as fast as everybody seemed to believe. Counterintuitively, House Democrats’ triumph in the midterms may have pushed their center of gravity to the right: The 40 seats Democrats gained were overwhelmingly located in moderate or Republican-leaning districts.

    Biden’s apparent resurrection from relic to runaway front-runner has illustrated a chasm between perception and reality. The triumph of the left is somewhere between a movement ahead of its time and a bubble that has just popped.

Biden wants to raise your taxes. (Hat tip: Stephen Green at Instapundit.) Washington Post headline breathlessly tells us “Trouble is brewing in Joe Biden’s presidential campaign,” but it’s just microwaved ancient Anita Hill leftovers again. A parody website is outranking Biden’s official site. He brought in $700,000 at a Hollywood fundraiser.

CNSNews.com) - Former Vice President Joe Biden, now running for the Democrat presidential nomination, told a gathering in New Hampshire on Monday that the 2020 election is "bigger than politics" and "bigger than any you've been engaged in" because of "who occupies the office."

“The fact of the matter is that I'm running for three basic reasons, and I'm going to be very clear about it as I move along and go into great detail as we get down the road here, because this is a marathon," Biden said.

He then listed his three reasons for running:

    I want to restore the soul of this country.

    And secondly, I really want to, quite frankly, rebuild the backbone of this country, this time bringing everyone along, the middle class -- the middle class that built this country.

    And thirdly what I want to do is I want to, and we talked about earlier, unite the country. Folks, I know I get criticized for saying that I think we have to unite the country.

    The truth of the matter is, we can't get anything done in this country without a consensus. That's the way our Constitution is written, that's the way it runs. We're in a situation where you have to be able to generate a consensus to get anything done.

    If you don't do that, you end up where we are now, you end up with a president who can divide the country, based on the ability to garner more power for himself or herself, depending on who it is -- and be in a situation where you just can't get anything done, when things don't get done, that's when executives reach out and claim more power than they're entitled to.

Biden: 'I'm Running for Three Basic Reasons'
CNS News, May 14, 2019

I want to restore the soul of this country.

And secondly, I really want to, quite frankly, rebuild the backbone of this country, this time bringing everyone along, the middle class -- the middle class that built this country.

And thirdly what I want to do is I want to, and we talked about earlier, unite the country. Folks, I know I get criticized for saying that I think we have to unite the country.   

[...]

Biden, apparently fond of the number three, also told the gathering "There's three things we have to do to restore people's dignity."

"The first one is, we have to re-establish what Barack and I did in the Affordable Care Act..." (Biden praised Obama as "one heck of a president”). He said he would "restore" Obamacare and stop its evisceration.

The second thing is free community college. “Twelve years of education is not enough any longer," Biden said, but the costs are skyrocketing.  "We can pay for this with the tax cut that we're going to reverse, as well as eliminating some of these loopholes that make no sense,” he said.

The environment is the third thing Biden mentioned: "Clean air, clean water…We need environmental revolution,” Biden said, to deal with the “existential threat.”

"We do need to finish this green revolution in a way that's rational, and we can do it and afford it and get it done now."
