Democrats are in a tough spot. They’ve nominated a man for the presidency who is clearly suffering the ravages of cognitive decline. For months, his handlers have kept him holed up in his basement bunker, where he occasionally attempts to read from an abbreviated, prepared script and bungles even that. Barack Obama has tried to rescue his former vice president by engaging in a socially distanced chat, that was difficult for anyone who had a relative with dementia to watch. Then, in order to appear relevant, Biden announced he was focusing on his vice presidential selectee, who, of course, will be a woman. But not just any woman. She must be black. Relevant qualifications have devolved to qualities, ethnicity and gender, that are beyond our control. This is the red meat of democrat politics in the BLM era.
Reportedly topping the list of VP contenders are Susan Rice and Kamala Harris. Make no mistake, Obama is integral to the selection.
The Democrat National Convention Aug. 17-20 in Milwaukee will not feature their party’s nominee accepting the nomination. Biden, 77, will remain in his home in Delaware ostensibly to keep Milwaukee residents safe during the virtual convention. Keeping Biden from making more public gaffes is the main consideration of DNC honchos. Biden’s a flawed puppet who must be kept out of the spotlight at all costs. That’s why there are already moves to keep him from engaging in presidential prerequisite debates with President Trump. It’s widely acknowledged that the Dem VP choice will eventually take the reins should the unthinkable happen and he be elected.
A memory jogger (brief video) regarding known liar Susan Rice is in order. In 2014, Rice, Obama’s former U.N. ambassador and National Security Advisor appeared on David Gregory NBC’s “Meet the Press” and asked if she had any regrets for going on NBC, and other Sunday shows, telling the American people that the Benghazi deadly jihadist attacks on our embassy were a result of an anti-Islam video.
“David, no, because what I said to you that morning and what I did every day since was to share the best information that we had at the time,” Rice stated. “The information that I provided, which I explained to you was what we had at the moment. It could change. This is based on what we knew on that morning was provided to me and my colleagues and indeed to Congress by the intelligence community, and that’s been well validated in many ways since.”
“And that information turned out, in some respects, not to be a hundred percent correct, but the notion that somehow I or anybody else in the administration misled the American people is patently false, and I think that’s been amply demonstrated,” Rice fudged.
The New York Post carries this recent report of Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) appearing to top the narrowed Biden’s VP list. The report includes this revealing photo of Biden holding a pro-Harris talking points list on his own letterhead.
Biden’s campaign insiders have longstanding relationships with many Obama and Clinton veterans who are advocating for Harris. They view her prosecutorial skills as an asset as she attempts to attack the Trump administration to provide heft to Biden’s incoherent campaign. This is Biden’s third bite at the presidential apple, and his dentures continue to slip.
