Joe BidenCongratulations to our presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden!

Why Biden?

Why is Trump all hung up on Biden? Why not anyone else?

It's as if he's already decided who he is running against....This bothers me....it makes me feel like he already knows who the nominee will be....

the same thing happened when Hillary was running in the primaries- he was all hell-bent on Hillary......

Maybe there's some piece of this I don't understand....

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden

1. I think Biden is the biggest threat (or perceived threat) to Putin.

 

I think it's Putin who doesn't want Biden as president. It was definitely Putin who didn't want Hillary.

2. Because Biden relates well to those in the rust belt when he tells his story.

 

He also is attached to Obama, and you know the orange puss ball, he hates anything and anyone that was chosen by Obama. I am not into conspiracy theories, I don't think he "knows" who the nominee will be any more than we do, he just doesn't like Joe and would prefer to run against someone like Bernie who has a lot of things he can easily attack.

3. Because, for the past year, Biden has been leading in the polls for the Democratic nomination...

 

...and he has been leading Trump by the biggest margins of all the other Democratic candidates.

What is so difficult to understand?

4. I don't think he "knew" it would be Biden. I think it's about internal polling.

 

I think he had some internal polling from very early that looked very, very bad for Trump vs. Biden. I think that's when the full-court-press kicked in.

for it.

20. Many already have. Whether or not MSM intentionally manipulates us, they have also joined

 

in on bashing Biden. As if that wasnít enough, they seldom give much time to surrogates, almost no time to any positive Biden event or story, while they give outsized status to two little white states and to flashes in the pan they crown instant stars.

Between Trumpís dirty tricks, the left, and MSM, also the tendency for white liberals and progressives to undervalue candidate history with AA voters, positive or negative, Biden is
consigned to a premature death.

Trump and Republicans are dancing a jig and laughing at us.

No, Bloomberg will not inherit Bidenís broad appeal and his ability to unite and heal should he somehow winómuch less Bidenís qualifications and experience.

Putin hates Pre O, HRC and Biden.

8. Because he's scared to death of him.

 

You donít go out of your way to manufacture conspiracies and commit impeachable offenses unless youíre concerned about losing badly.

16. You do when that just covers the real scandal

 

Oil and gas deals, corruption galore.

This is now a kleptocracy.

10. Because Biden fit into the Ukraine narrative Putin floated that would serve

 

to get Russia off the hook for hacking Dem emails. Sanctions on Russia could be lifted by Trump and Congress if blame for email hacks could be shifted to Ukraine.

Remember, Trump was pushing the story that Ukraine was involved, not Russia.

12. Most have considerd Biden most likely to win

 

Even a lot of us who don't care for him. Trump's just making the same assumption as most generally have.

I'm sure his connection to Obama plays into it too. He hates Obama more than anybody else on the planet.

13. It was pretty obvious HRC was the candidate from the get go. Biden looked to be the one,

 

now it is looking more competitive.

15. If you can stomach watching his rallies

 

He attacks every candidate. Even has a nickname for each one.

The media narrative is that the focus is on Joe because that is who he fears most. And Joe pushes that as well- and should. Itís his whole reason for running. He felt nobody else could beat Trump so he reluctantly decided to run...at least that was the story.

17. Maximum cruelty and attention

 

Going after the remaining son of a man who has lived with a great deal of loss and grief is absolutely hateful. Biden polled well for awhile but has not been able to deliver a campaign to legitimize the conventional wisdom regarding his electability.

21. Completely untrue...Trump and his Russian buddies wanted Sanders in 16...And Sanders did not

 

do enough to elect Hillary in the General IMHO...she still won the popular vote...Trump doesn't want to run against Biden because he knows Biden is likely to win the three states that gave Trump his 2016 victory...MI, WI and PA. Sanders who has never been vetted by the GOP will be destroyed in a general...and we are likely to lose the House.
