Biden tosses Dem nomination to Hillary

News outlets, among them Fox News, are rife with reports that VP Joe Biden has ceded the Democrat nomination to Hillary Clinton, despite his high poll numbers as an undeclared candidate. Since Biden made the announcement in the White House Rose Garden with Obama standing alongside him and his wife, Jill, speculation about what pressured him to stay out is running rampant. 

Previously Biden had been meetings with top labor leaders and Hispanic groups and was regarded as laying the groundwork for a 2016 presidential run.

Drudge Report used this great headline “BIDEN SCARED AWAY,” to an AP link, with an accompanying photo of Hillary in a witch’s costume.  Very appropriate just preceding Halloween.

    All is not sweetness and light between Biden and Hillary. During his announcement, he pointedly said, “I don’t think we should look at Republicans as our enemy. They’re the opposition. Four more years of this kind of pitched battle may be more than this country can take,” Biden said. “We have to change it.”
    It’s a good bet Hillary has no intention of heeding Biden’s advice.

    Since he’s not a candidate and his long political career is basically over, he can afford to sound statesman-like. In reality, those who are your political adversaries who hold views that are the antithesis of those you hold, are indeed your enemy. It’s important to realize they can also be in your own party. Most RINOs consider conservatives to be villains and vise versa.

    It’s not evil, it’s a different perspective that each side believes is right.

    I thought he’d run. His polling was good. It’s strange. Same with Kevin McCarthy, who I won’t miss. Gone in 60 seconds, without a fight.

    I found an interesting website which outlines the duties, powers, and responsibilities of the U.S. Vice President, and contains alot of interesting historical information.

    Given Joe Biden’s medical history of two separate surgeries for brain aneurysms, and his public display of bizarre behavior (which could directly correlate to the two brain surgeries), the country is better off not having to endure another impaired person in the Oval Office.

    And, if the truth be told, Hillary is not medically fit to serve, either.

      Interesting info. Thanks. I had forgotten about the aneurysm, and didn’t know he had two such episodes. .So there is a legit reason for his strange behavior…

      Weeelll HOPEFULLY, secretary clinton’s backside will be pureed today in Congressman Trey Gowdy’s Select Committee hearing. Then she’ll be a sidebar in American History, as she SHOULD be.
