    Joe Biden Signals Consideration For 2020 – ‘I’m the Most Qualified’

    Rusty WeissDecember 6, 2018

    Former Vice President Joe Biden gave the strongest signal yet that he is considering a presidential campaign in 2020, describing himself as the “most qualified” person to fill the role.

    “I’ll be as straight with you as I can,” Biden told a Montana crowd as he promoted his memoir, Promise Me, Dad. “I think I’m the most qualified person in the country to be president.”
    It is an unmistakable shot across the bow, staking his claim to the Democrat party’s nomination.
    “The issues that we face as a country today are the issues that have been in my wheelhouse, that I’ve worked on my whole life,” Biden added. “No one should run for the job unless they believe that they would be qualified doing the job.”
    It certainly seems like Diamond Joe is running

    Would Immediately be the Democrat Frontrunner

    Despite the clear comments, Biden said he hadn’t made an official decision as of yet, noting he and his family were “going to make that decision in the next six weeks to two months.”
    Polls have consistently placed Biden at the top of the Democratic heap of candidates, besting Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, and even topping Oprah in the category of likely voters.
    He has an ‘Uncle Joe,’ ‘kind of guy I’d have a beer with’ appeal to him and scores well with older voters, where President Trump also does well.
    But his flaws are many.
    Gaffe Machine

    Biden fully admits to being a “gaffe machine” but says he’s not concerned about it compared to his competition.
    “I am a gaffe machine, but my God what a wonderful thing compared to a guy who can’t tell the truth,” he said.
    So whether he’s telling a man in a wheelchair to stand up, talking about Barack Obama’s ‘big stick,’ claiming ‘jobs’ is a three-letter word, or saying the local 7-11 is full of people with Indian accents, Uncle Joe is ready to roll.

    What About the Fact He’s Also a Grope Machine?

    Biden might be able to escape the fact that he’s a gaffe machine, but in the #MeToo era, will he be able to escape scrutiny for being a grope machine?
    To be blunt, Joe has a “hands-on” approach to politics, and he’s demonstrated it time and time again.

    What does he plan on doing if Bikers for Trump see him on the campaign trail?

    Biden Wants Trump, Trump Wants Biden

    Both Biden and Trump seem to relish the opportunity to face one another in 2020.
    Biden has said that he’d only consider a presidential run if he could take on Donald Trump.
    “If Trump runs, Biden is suggesting he’s likely to do it because age won’t be a factor,” an individual close to Biden told FOX Business. “He also thinks he can beat Trump.”
    Trump meanwhile, has already referred to Biden as his ‘dream’ opponent, taunting him for never getting more than 1 percent in previous bids and saying he only got where he was because “Obama took him out of the garbage heap.”
    He also has a nickname lined up for him to play off of Biden’s grope-happy ways – ‘Creepy Joe.’
    Will We See a Trump/Biden Street Fight?

    Back in March, Biden challenged the President to a schoolyard brawl, saying: “If we were in high school, I’d take him behind the gym and beat the hell out of him.”
    Trump’s response is legendary …
    Crazy Joe Biden is trying to act like a tough guy. Actually, he is weak, both mentally and physically, and yet he threatens me, for the second time, with physical assault. He doesn’t know me, but he would go down fast and hard, crying all the way. Don’t threaten people Joe!
    — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 22, 2018
    Biden almost immediately ran away with his tail tucked between his legs.
    Perhaps in lieu of one of the debates, both candidates could just meet each other at the flagpole near their closest local high school.

    Don’t go away mad, Joe -- just go away

    By Richard Jack Rail

    Joe Biden says he’s the most qualified person in the country to be president

    Well, Joe, if it were about paper qualifications, you’d have an argument. You have an East Coast (if not Ivy League) sheepskin. You’ve been in the Senate and warmed the veep’s chair. You’ve run for president.

    You’ve been around, no question about that, and for a long time. A very long time.

    That’s what you’ve done.

    What you have not done is anything worth talking about. We all admire your dental and hair work, and we’re duly impressed with your wife’s doctorate in education. We’re not so taken with the way you ran the Anita Hill hearings, your putting your hands all over other men’s daughters in public places, your lifting other people’s words and not giving attribution, or your being wrong on just about everything in foreign policy and national security for the last four decades.

    Nothing comes to mind that recommends you, Joe, and we don’t want another president who needs a teleprompter to tell him what to say, or a line of interns in the wings to take care of his personal qualification.

    You guys on the left, Joe, don’t seem to grasp that being president is serious business. You keep putting up people whose flaws make Richard Nixon look shiny. People whose personal lives have been tawdry, petty, bullying, and ugly.

    People like you, Joe. Well qualified, but with nothing of substance to recommend them.

    Bow out gracefully. Go home and enjoy the pretend adulation of family and neighbors. Retire. Get out of the spotlight. If you ever had a chance at the big prize, you blew it long ago.

    The democrats are going to be interesting to watch, while the old guard are typical socialist, the upcoming stars are outright communist and idiots when trying to carry on dialogue on economics. The new democrats are going to try to have their own version of Kristallnacht to overturn the stranglehold on guys like Joe Biden and such.

    How will they achieve this? The best strategy would be to not stand in the way of Trump as he cleans house. The Republicans could actually be the best allies this new left democrats could hope for.

    There's a few of "us" who think otherwise.

    The really tragic part is that he's likely pretty close to being correct.

    I agree with him, he is the most qualified DEMOCRAT, but NONE of them are qualified to do anything. Well maybe he is qualified to grope.
