Why Joe Won’t Blow It

The Obama/Biden legacy is his not-so-secret weapon

Spectator USA
Michael Tracey
May 10, 2019

Excerpt:

A common fallacy circulating among the pundit class is that every presidential election cycle will be as ‘disruptive’ as 2016 undoubtedly was. Or in other words, the lessons of that year – which marked a genuine ideological upheaval across the political spectrum in the United States – are extrapolated into the aphorism that such all-consuming disruption will be the ‘new normal’ going forward.

But there’s a decent chance that 2020 instead brings a reversion to the predictable and the banal. If the economy stays relatively ’good’, at least in the macro sense, it would be naive to dismiss the possibility that a critical mass of Democratic primary voters simply opt for a return to the pre-Trump status quo, rather than mobilize for sweeping, structural change. Yes, there are still examples of old political structures around the world crumbling under the weight of their own corruption, but assuming this trend must continue in perpetuity could be an exercise in wish-fulfillment fantasy on the part of opinion-makers. Especially absent severe economic distress, reclaiming ’normalcy’ after four long years of Trump-induced insanity might well become the overriding priority for Democrats voting next year in primaries and caucuses. And what could better encapsulate a wish to return to the pre-Trump status quo than nominating Joe Biden, who served alongside Barack Obama for eight faithful years as perhaps his most trusted and steadfast confidant? Most Democrats would give an arm and a leg to bring Obama back tomorrow, no questions asked.

If you gaze upon Twitter, where little support for Biden is evident among chattering journalists and activists, you will often find old video clips resurfacing where he says something nominally untoward or shameful. Yes, some of these clips are certainly illustrative, such as the 1995 snippet where he proclaims how much he ‘likes’ the idea of keeping people in jail for longer sentences. But the image of Biden that currently exists in the minds of most Democrats, and the reason why he currently leads national polls by a sizable margin, does not derive from C-SPAN clips from 1995 or 1978. Democrats are so fond of him because of his two terms spent as the jovial and wisecracking vice president under Obama, who is still extremely popular within the party rank-and-file. Most of these people do not know or care about statements or Senate votes from decades ago.

That’s why, in order to successfully challenge Biden, his Democratic competitors will have to confront the Obama/Biden legacy. Because it’s that legacy on which Biden is predicating his campaign.

We've entrusted President Trump to confront the horror show Obama legacy, and I'm willing to give him four more years to do so!

I'm pretty sure you're right about this and I don't think it will take much time to find out. :lol:

Considering the election is almost a year and a half away, I strongly agree. His handlers will screw up somewhere and he'll say something stupid and/or crazy in front of a camera. He will also have a bunch of other dimocrats who will do anything to damage him to help themselves and they'll use that stuff. Don't forget the hildebeast waiting in the wings to save the party from the crazies (after they finish the circular firing squad) and she will be happy to help take poor biden down as well.
Biden would have been smarter to sit on the sidelines and let the total crazies wipe each other out-then go in as the moderate.

Trump induced insanity?? :rolleyes:

It's true the left has completely lost its collective mind, but it's due to their own bat-sh*t lunacy, utter derangement and incapacity to grow the F up.

And that all by itself proves their insanity. They'd give an arm and a leg to bring back the worst president in any still-living person's lifetime.

I think Joe won't blow because Joe is a receiver not a giver.....

This is some twisted logic. So Trump's economy is good so voters will vote to return to pre-Trump economy? Is this the concept of the lemming strategy? Everything is going good so lets jump off a cliff?

Just like a good socialist, wipe away the sin's of the predecessors with the concept of "corruption" without ever realizing that corruption comes from power, and total control of the means of production (socialism) is the absolute power, which corrupts absolutely.

:exactly:

They are living their own lies, straight up.

I just have had a couple of heated encounters with several of these progtards here in my city over the removal of the Castleman statue that has been in place for well over a hundred+ years because these SJW weenies got all butthurt and keep on vandalizing it by throwing orange paint on it.

Castleman donated hundreds of acres of his own land here that became Cherokee park. He was also a famous riding horseman who founded the sport in our area. The statue was a tribute to him for all that he has done here.

But because he had served in the civil war on the side of the Confederacy, the progtarded SJW snowflakes here are having a meltdown and are going on a vandalizing mission upon everything here that refers to anything Confederate.

The mayor and city council agree with the vandals (as they often do side with/for criminals) and have been actively working to appease them by removing all of our civil war statues and monuments that are on display anywhere in public. I strongly suspect that the mayor or someone closely connected to him are actually the ones committing the vandalizing upon these statues. He sure has spent a lot of city money and resources fighting court battles to have these all removed because he's a democrap progtard and a crook as was the mayor before him.

I am hating this city more and more everyday as it becomes more and more batcrap crazy with the growing infestation of these SJW morons.

When I retire, I'm outta here.

That's what these vandals need and richly deserve for sure.

But the mayor (as do most progtarded democraps) prefers to accommodate and cater to their wishes and to hell with all normal decent law abiding citizens.

The fact that this statue is in a very well traveled public place, that no one has been caught (as this same exact vandalism has been repeated again numerous times with the same color paint), with no placement of any surveillance cameras or police officers makes me very wary of whom these culprits are.

The mayor and city council whine how much it costs to remove the damage and restore the statue but they have no problem with the much more expensive costs to remove and relocate it?

All of this ridiculous political correctness crap that my city pulls is very annoying and is costing us property owning taxpayers here a fortune.

They will probably rename the park for the Muslim draft dodger boxer Muhammad Ali (who had nothing to do with our airport, they had removed the name of the Standiford family who had donated the land and built the airport just as Castleman had donated the land and built Cherokee park where his statue sits at the entrance).

Anything to remove anything and everything to do with white guys on everything and with every institution here.

Progressive/socialist traitors don't care what Biden does, their hatred of the President rules their actions. We are not dealing with sane people.

He doesn't have to. Rumor has it, Harris is quite skilled and Buttegeig's entire campaign is based around the fact that he will.
