The Biden Campaign is Collapsing Under the Weight of all the Gaffes

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

Ok, so he was a clueless nitwit 31 years ago, too. Good to know. – In what can only be described as an act of pure desperation in the wake of their candidate’s neverending string of inexplicable gaffes, Joe Biden’s campaign on Tuesday rolled out the neurosurgeon who performed two surgical procedures to correct brain aneurysms on the former Vice President back in 1988. Unfortunately for Biden, the surgeon, Dr. Neal Kassell, was able to only offer faint praise for his elderly patient, telling Politico that “He is every bit as sharp as he was 31 years ago. I haven’t seen any change.”

Um, you’ll have to excuse us if that doesn’t give us much comfort, given that the nation’s official Unfrozen Caveman Senator has been running round the country blurting out embarrassing and disturbing statements that must make his staff cringe in horror on pretty much a daily basis. In the most recent example, on Tuesday Biden talked about his memories of the 1968 assassinations of Martin Luther King and Robert F. Kennedy thusly:

“When Bobby Kennedy and Dr. King had been assassinated in the 70s, the late 70s when I got engaged,” he said in the run-up to making a point about how times have changed.

That whopper comes just a couple of days after he recited his memories of visiting and comforting the victims of the mass shootings in Parkland, Florida while he was serving as vice president. The only problem with that recollection is that that tragedy took place in 2018, well over a year after Biden had left office. But hey, that shouldn’t surprise us: After all, this is a guy who thought the El Paso shootings took place in Houston and who placed the Dayton, Ohio killings somewhere in Michigan.

Let’s all be honest about this: The man is not in full possession of his faculties, and his campaign staffers don’t know what to do about it.

Think about how desperate they’ve become: Before yesterday, it’s likely that less than 1 in 1000 Americans were even aware that Biden had had not one, but two bouts with brain surgery 31 years ago. Given the fake news media’s ongoing efforts to protect Biden, it is doubtful the subject would have ever been raised during the course of the campaign. Today, that number is probably between 5 and 10 percent thanks to the news reporting related to his brain surgeon’s comments.

It doesn’t get any more desperate than when you intentionally call attention to your own candidate’s advanced age and infirmities. It’s like a military unit calling in artillery fire on its own position.

The Biden campaign’s panic comes amid the candidate’s softening polling numbers and as more and more of the Democrat Party’s poobahs publicly express doubts about Biden’s sharpness and ability on the campaign trail.

Some Democrats are doing even more than that. Someone in the Obama camp leaked information to their leftist media allies a few days ago indicating that Obama repeatedly tried to dissuade Biden from making a presidential run, out of fear that Biden’s serial bumbling and bad behavior would damage The One’s “legacy”, such as it is.

Here is what the reliably leftist GQ magazine had to say about it in an aggressive hit piece published over the weekend:

The two men spoke at least a half dozen times before Mr. Biden decided to run, and Mr. Obama took pains to cast his doubts about the campaign in personal terms.”You don’t have to do this, Joe, you really don’t,” Mr. Obama told Mr. Biden earlier this year, according to a person familiar with the exchange. Mr. Biden — who thinks he could have defeated Donald Trump four years ago—responded by telling Mr. Obama he could never forgive himself if he turned down a second shot at Mr. Trump.

That “person familiar with the exchange” was almost certainly someone very close to Obama, someone like, oh, say, Valerie Jarrett, maybe?

Check out these next two paragraphs:

Since announcing his candidacy, Biden has proven himself exceptionally gaffe-prone, repeatedly referring to former British prime minister Theresa May as Margaret Thatcher, claiming he was vice president during the 2017 high school shooting in Parkland, Florida, and saying, “Poor kids are just as bright, just as talented, as white kids,” at a speech in Iowa. Apart from making verbal stumbles, he’s also defended his working relationship with segregationists in Congress.

The Times also reports that in March, Obama summoned Biden’s top campaign advisers, Anita Dunn and Kate Bedingfield, to his Washington office. Multiple sources confirmed to the Times that the ex-president warned the advisers to make sure that Biden doesn’t “embarrass himself” or “damage his legacy.”

This is what is known in the political world as a “distancing effort.” Obama his own self can see the handwriting on the wall where Biden is concerned, and has his loyal minions out planting damaging stories like this one which are designed to disavow any notion that Obama played any role in encouraging Biden to make this run.

So, next time Creepy Uncle Joe refers to “my good friend, Barack,” know that that “good friend” has repeatedly stuck a knife in his buddy’s back.

But hey, it’s nobody’s fault but Joe’s.

That is all.

    Biden is Baxter Harris more and more every day!

    https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=president+baxter+harris+scary+movie+3&view=detail&mid=FE9F0A7F8BD9F9377EADFE9F0A7F8BD9F9377EAD&FORM=VIRE

    It used to be funny; now it’s worse than sad: tragic.
    What is funny is how Joe/Baxter is up compared to his competitors.
    What does that say about them?

    The End of Biden was sealed when he said: “China is going to eat our lunch? Come on man. China isn’t competition for us.” Huh?

    The only flub worse than that from a former high administration official came when James Clapper called the Muslim Brotherhood “a largely secular organization,” something even his boss had to retract. Of course, he hadn’t been briefed on a lot of things – like when he wasn’t told about the arrests of 12 bombers in London, something that even the press had been reporting. One suspects that they had Clapper in a room by himself, playing Nintendo or pulling down naughty pictures. Is that Biden’s excuse?

    Non compos mentis is non compos mentis, Joe.

    That Joe is still the frontrunner of the commiecrats sez that they are not seriously offering him as the leftist candidate for ’20.
    I’m thinkin’ there is a stealth candidate waiting in the wings to jump in at the last minute. Someone who is not so comical nor gaffe prone, a serious contender.
    Think about what happened in ’08 with Shillary and 0zero. Who was the favored candidate up until a certain point? When is that point this time around? Hmmmmm.
    Just sayin’.

      I’ve said it before here and I’ll say it again, this whole democratic primary sham is just that, a sham. These wannabes will be allowed to beat themselves up for the next ten month and none of them will have enough “delegates” to secure the nomination at the convention. Then some untainted “candidate” will be chosen by the Godfathers of the DNC.

      He/she/it will be someone they deem “electable”, someone who has been spared all of the negative campaigning of the primaries, someone who can sell air conditioners to Eskimos, someone who is just as left as Obama, but someone who will be seen as an “outsider” who can unite the party and bring the country “together”. He/she/it must be an “outsider” as that is who they (the DNC and not the people) will select and he/she/it will be marketed as such because Trump was seen as an outsider by the people who were fed up with all politicians. The DNC will say that Trump is now an insider and offer up their “outsider” to challenge him. It will be someone without a political record, a “blank slate”, like Obama was portrayed, but well enough known with decent name recognition who is relatively popular and has achieved some of success in his/her life outside politics.

      I used to think it would be Michelle – she doesn’t seem to want the job, is too polarizing, and has too much baggage like Hillary did.

      Maybe the Oparah, or a Tom Hanks – neither would surprise me, but probably like being liked and wouldn’t take the pay cut.

      I’m surprised the Yang hasn’t gotten more traction as an outsider businessman, or that Steyer chose to have gotten in the race now; he could have bided his time and self funded his own outsider image.

      Whatever the strategy, I feel it will ultimately fail because the MSM and the DNC has so riled up their dysfunctional and ununified base that no matter who becomes the nominee, a large percentage of their radicals will be pissed and abandon the malignant Democratic Party or just splinter and/or fade away. Couldn’t happen to a better group of misanthropes then the current (and now exposed thanks to President Trump) Democratic Party.

      RINOs who keep working to hurt Trump and America by crossing the aisle to “compromise” with the Dems had better be aware – their time for removal from office is coming

      1. Jimmy MacAfee - August 21, 2019

        HRC thinks she’ll get another bite at the apple. Delusion runs deep.

  4. M Allen - August 21, 2019

    Nothing I would like more than to help trash Obummer’s “legacy”

  5. Cameron Howe - August 21, 2019

    “…the ex-president warned the advisers to make sure that Biden doesn’t “embarrass himself” or “damage his legacy.””

    What a narcissist.
