Joe Biden's History Repeating Itself?
Well, at least he's consistent.
It's hard to guess whether the person flashing the above blue/white button is being persistently hopeful or downright sarcastic.
Every time I'm forced to think about Joe Biden, I recall what was said of him way back since before Obama was elected -- that his foot was more-or-less always in his mouth; that he was, basically, a loose cannon who pretty much had to wear a muzzle during his tenure as VP in the Obama administration.
Back then, I didn't have specifics since I was more concerned about Stephen Harper and his crew at the time -- shocked that the dwindling Progressive Conservative Party could even think of merging with the Reform Party, a motly mix of religious right wingers with "extremist views towards ethnic minorities, women and homosexuals" -- so I knew little and cared less about the misadventures of Joe Biden.
By the way: it's interesting to recall that the Reform Party was "firmly opposed to Québec's demands for special status within Confederation", considering that it came out of Alberta, one of the provinces currently threatening separation -- so how consistent is that lot, eh?
But, without looking further, I can tell you one thing: if Biden gets to run in the upcoming US election, he is going to make Trump look g-o-o-o-d.
He already has, in fact. He's made Trump more entertaining, at least: 'Sleepy Joe!': Donald Trump mocks Joe Biden's gaffes during rally [YouTube]
Not to mention that there are other videos equally as enjoyable on the same page as the Trump mock-fest: "Joe Biden's Gaffes, Joe Biden's Greatest Gaffes, Jo Biden's verbal gaffes, Joe biden's Confused crazy rants, Joe Biden's Biggest Gaffes ...
FoxNews: Joe Biden a 'flip-flopping gaffe machine' benefitting largely from Obama ties
FoxNews: Biden, on video, lashes out at Detroit autoworker in profanity-laced gun dispute
I'm thinking his latest lapses could be exacerbated by his advancing age. But, maybe not. He ran for the presidency in 1987 and blew that just as handily as he seems to be doing now:
Time: Why Joe Biden's First Campaign for President Collapsed After Just 3 Months
Never one to recognize an opportunity to keep his counsel and reap the reward, Biden, naturally, blew his opportunity to take the higher road.
How did he manage to blow it so badly when even the movie about Gary Hart's downfall got a so-so rating?
And it has apparently taught him nothing, nada, zilch!
Time Mag. offers Top 10 Joe Biden Gaffes during his tenure as Obama's VP. Take your pick.
Is Covid-19 going to bail him out? There are calls to shut down the debates due to the spread of the virus (Democracy Now), and apparently, only Biden and Sanders are willing to comply:
Considering how Trump is already happily dissing Biden, it's clear he's pretty certain that Biden will win the Democrat leadership race since "Former vice presidents usually win their party nominations when they seek them": FiveThirtyEight
He's just Biden his time, eh? Like "The Foursome" (1939):
