New Democrat Strategy: Hidin’ Biden

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Hey, why does that strategy sound so familiar?– The Washington Post carried a piece on Sunday titled “Biden’s Campaign is one of Limited Exposure.” Gosh, that sure sounds like something we’ve heard from a leading Democrat candidate before, doesn’t it?

Yeah, sure does. To see why, all we must do is hark back to 2015, when the Pantsuit Princess’s advisors decided that the best thing for her to do was to lay low and stay out of the public eye as much as possible. Why would that be the case, you might wonder? Well, it was because the Fainting Felon’s team recognized that they had on their hands an extraordinarily unlikable candidate, a candidate whose polling numbers fell in direct correlation with the amount of public exposure she received. Plus, they had a candidate with a variety of physical infirmities – like her chronic hacking cough and the fact that she was incapable of climbing a few steps up to a stage without assistance – that had to be carefully hidden from the public eye.

Thus, the Coughing Crook’s campaign was one of strategic hiding, a campaign designed to attract as little direct attention onto the candidate herself as possible. While Donald Trump and 15 other GOP contenders were duking it out on national TV every day, the Grasping Grifter was issuing carefully-scripted tweets, speaking maybe twice a week at the standard half-filled high school gymnasium, and otherwise avoiding any live contact with anyone who might ask an inconvenient question of her. That strategy continued right on through Election Day 2016, and we all saw how that turned out for the Democrats.

Fast forward four years, and we now see Creepy Uncle Joe employing the exact same strategy. While 24 other Democrat candidates are jockeying for position in the daily pecking order, desperately seeking all the free media attention they can get, the guy who has had more facial work than Cher and whose really bad hair plug job all fell out late in the 20th century has suddenly gone quiet following his much-heralded two week campaign kickoff a month ago.

It isn’t hard to see why. As we discussed last week, Biden very predictably jumped out to a big lead in the various polls during the 10 days following his formal campaign announcement, and then saw that lead quickly start to disintegrate in direct correlation with the amount of actual media attention he received.

See, Democrat voters love the idea of Joe Biden, but it was starting to become too obvious that they aren’t all that fond of waking up to the reality of Joe Biden. The idea of Biden is the thought that here’s the Washington, DC veteran of more than 40 years, an energetic guy who has seen and done it all, a guy who spent 8 years as VP to Barack Hussein Obama his own self, a guy who would ride in on his unicorn and vanquish the Evil Orange Man, thus taking our nation back to the glory days of 1% economic growth and the EPA regulating our swimming pools.

But the reality of Joe Biden is something else entirely. The reality of Biden is a guy who can’t keep his hands off of women and children at public events, a guy who will be approaching octogenarian status by the time January 20, 2021 rolls around, a worn out old DC hack who can’t attract a crowd of more than a few hundred people to an event in Downtown Philly, a guy with a real record as long as his creepy fingers that is chock-full of statements and positions that offend pretty much every one of the aggrieved special interests that constitute the Democrat Party’s fragile voter coalition, and a guy who can’t even speak in complete, coherent sentences when not reading from a script.

This is a man who has to be carefully controlled and handled, obviously.

Biden’s massive team of handlers understand that the key to Joe Biden becoming president is to ensure that voters go to the polls to elect the idea of Joe Biden, because there is no way on God’s green earth – or I guess they would say Gaia’s green earth – that the American people are ever going to elect the reality of Joe Biden.

These advisors must look at the long series of debates and a long and arduous nominating run laid out before them as a field of land mines, a withering and daunting process that could see their candidate’s clownish mouth produce utter disaster with every successive step. So, yes, they are keeping their accident-waiting-to-happen candidate out of the public eye as much as possible right now. Best to go into that debate season next month with a lead in the polls and see how long they can hang onto it.

Thus, the Democrats go from Hiding Hillary to Hidin’ Biden.

Maybe someday the Party that saddled us with Woodrow Wilson and Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton and Barack Obama his own self will nominate a candidate it can actually be proud of. Wouldn’t that be a wonderful thing?

That is all.

    Please Joe, come out of hiding. You have so many questions that need to be answered. We want to see your explanation of the comments you made about black citizens early in your career as you try to garner the votes of blacks.

    Back in the 70’s Biden did not believe in desegregation or the opening of public schools to all minorities. Biden’s sad and pathetic attempts to convince black citizens that they simply did not understand that segregation was good for them is classic racism. Biden’s racism didn’t seem to die down as he aged. His comment about Obama is classic. He said; “I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,” When will Biden be called on the carpet for his racist past?

    There is nothing so dangerous as a braggadocious ignorant fool who thinks he is a genius.

    “Maybe someday the Party that saddled us with Woodrow Wilson and Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton and Barack Obama”

    Just HAVE to include FDR and LBJ on that Parthenon. Carter and Clinton were moderate hacks by comparison to those two.

    The inevitable pantsuit princess should have known the gig was up when maybe 40 inferior devotee groupie ballwashers would show up at a rally while Trump would have them lined up around the block with standing room only inside the venue.
    Also the deplorables comment was her Mittens Romney 47% moment.
