For eight long years, Joe Biden was a loyal soldier to Barack Obama but it looks as if that loyalty was strictly one way. Barack Obama has spoken to many of the Democrats running for president with one notable exception. He has not talked to Joe Biden, but he has talked about Joe Biden. He told one unidentified Democratic candidate that Joe Biden does not have what it takes to win the general election.
Obama has not endorsed Biden, which is strange coming from someone who served him faithfully for eight years. In fact, i don’t remember that ever happening before. He might just be wanting to put some distance between him and Biden’s pay for play schemes.He has already taken enough grief for Hillary’s.
Obama has said he will sit on the sidelines for the primaries, although one confidante said that should it look like bernie will win the nomination, he could step in to try to stop it. They claim that Obama does not want a socialist candidate. Where will he find one in the Democratic Party? Maybe Joe Biden. He’s all about making money.
Joe Biden, 77, has been getting clobbered by the conservative media since he announced his 2020 bid for the White House over his crooked son Hunter’s pay-to-play scheme in Ukraine.
Biden is running against Donald Trump, a man who voters chose to elect as a direct repudiation of the anti-American far left Obama-Biden machine — Biden has no self awareness.
Obama reportedly met with Dem candidates at a donor event in DC and said Biden just doesn’t have it.
Via Ryan Lizza of Politico:
“Sometimes he offers candid advice about his visitors’ strengths and weaknesses. With several lesser-known candidates, according to people who have talked to him or been briefed on his meetings, he was blunt about the challenges of breaking out of a large field. His advice is not always heeded. He told Patrick earlier this year that it was likely “too late” for him to secure “money and talent” if he jumped in the race. Occasionally, he can be cutting. With one candidate, he pointed out that during his own 2008 campaign, he had an intimate bond with the electorate, especially in Iowa, that he no longer has. Then he added, “And you know who really doesn’t have it? Joe Biden.”
