Former Vice President Joe Biden now wants the big job, but the radical left does not want him.
Too old, too white, too capitalist.
So this is presenting a problem for the Democrats because all the polls say the same thing: Biden might be able to best Donald Trump in the 2020 election.
Bernie Sanders and his younger socialist comrades will not beat Trump.
A quick glance at the field defines the problem.
Sanders is so far left that it is inconceivable working class Americans will support his vision of Washington running everything: the economy, health care, education, what we eat for breakfast.
Elizabeth Warren is even more radical than Bernie plus she has the Indian thing.
Kamala Harris is California left, that means open borders, sanctuary cities, enormous taxes, militant climate change polices, and restorative justice. Ms. Harris is apparently not big on due process either having convicted Brett Kavanaugh. She also believed the “victim” Jussie Smollett.
Tough resume for Kamala.
Beto O’Rourke does not think there is a “problem” on the southern border even though authorities say about 100,000 foreign nationals tried to enter the USA in March alone. Mr. Beto actually lives in the besieged city of El Paso but again, no problema en el pais.
Kirsten Gillibrand, Amy Klobuchar and Cory Booker are all polling around two percent – a long climb.
Joe Biden and his advisors well understand how weak the democrat field really is, but they did not count on the radical playbook. Want to dust somebody off the floor – accuse the person of “misconduct.”
So a number of women have embarrassed Biden by alleging that he acted “inappropriately” toward them years ago. Almost immediately, Elizabeth Warren proclaimed Biden guilty as charged. Anybody got a rope?
If Biden does enter the race, there will be more women, and if you don’t believe me, ask Donald Trump, who might put it this way if he were chatting with Biden: “me, too, Joe.”
Trump survived, Kavanaugh survived, and Biden probably will. But at age 78, Joseph Biden from Scranton, Pennsylvania is now going up against an evil he could not even imagine just five years ago. The progressive monster is off the slab, out the door and no one in town is safe.
So here’s my analysis and it comes in the form of a warning: the radical left doesn’t want you, Joe. And those people have no limits.
