After Iowa, Five Reasons For The Decline And Fall Of 'Frontrunner' Joe Biden

American Thinker
By Monica Showalter
February 5, 2020


Lost in the shuffle of the Democrats' app fiasco in Iowa, the rubber-room swan song of House impeachment manager Adam Schiff, and the childish paper-ripping tantrum of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the candidacy of "frontrunner" Joe Biden looks headed for the dumpster.

To the extent known from the Iowa caucus ballots counted, Biden is in fourth place, winning just 15% of the caucus count, trailing Pete Buttigieg, Bernie Sanders, and Elizabeth Warren, and just barely ahead of Amy Klobuchar. Unlike those first three, he gets no delegates for his efforts. He's also out of money. It's simply a disaster for Biden.

This is the guy whose entire rationale for running was that he was the guy most likely to Beat Trump.

"Biden has a big problem," said political lizard turned CNN commentator David Axelrod. That's euphem-speak for 'buh-bye Joe.'


Biden's whole pitch up until now has been that he's the most electable of the Democratic candidates, a man with an appeal that spanned from the white Midwestern working class "Reagan Democrats," to the black voters in the South who associated him with President Obama, to the mainstream Democratic establishment. Joe would be the one to bring in those votes together to forge a coalition to take down Trump. The RealClearPolitics poll of polls average consistently showed him in first place.

Here's the gooey coverage Biden got from the New York Times at the start of his race:

In a three-and-a-half minute video that focused on excoriating Mr. Trump, Mr. Biden presented himself as a steely leader for a country wracked by political conflict. Unlike the wide field of Democrats competing for the affections of the left, Mr. Biden avoided almost any talk of policy or ideology, signaling that he believes voters will embrace him as a figure of stability and maturity even in a partisan primary election.

In doing so, Mr. Biden, 76, is making a bet of sorts that the Democratic Party’s leftward shift in recent years has been greatly overstated, and that the moral clarity of his rhetoric and his seeming strength as a general election candidate will overpower other considerations for Democratic voters who tend to prize youth, diversity and unapologetic liberalism.


What took him down? Likely number one was impeachment. Democrats, with a zero-chance focus on taking down Trump, shot arrow after arrow that bounced off Trump and landed onto House Biden, bringing to the voting public's attention the rarified and corrupt big dollar paydays that came to members of the Biden family as a result of Biden's vice presidency. Thomas Lifson, well before the impeachment debacle hit Trump, pointed out with pinpoint accuracy that Biden's corruption problems would come back to bite him. Biden's fawning press tried to cover for him, with all that "he did nothing wrong" blather but voters noticed.

Second reason he failed had to have been in his string of insults to voters. With the press covering for him, voters took matters into their own hands and asked Biden all about his corrupt deals. Instead of answering them with platitudes, Biden attacked them. He challenged an old fat Iowa farmer to a push-up match, engaging in fat-shaming and other insulting statements. He told another voter to "go vote for someone else." It raised questions: Did Biden want to be there? He seemed to wither like a hothouse protected flower when exposed to actual voters and it was clear he hated them. He lacked the press as a foil for his fight (as Trump did not), so ended up attacking the little guys. Big turnoff. Not a guy you'd want to have a beer with, according to the political-viability estimator. Nobody wants to vote for a mean old man who hates people.

6th, he's never been anything more than a glad-handing, back-slapping empty suit with zero leadership ability. When has this guy ever been the chief executive of anything? He's just been another schmoozing "club member" of one form or another his whole misbegotten life.
