Watching Joe in the pizza parlor on MSNBC. Amazing.

They’ve just got him on split screen with the pundits. He’s just talking to the gathering crowd. One on one. Interested in them all. Seeing them. Respecting them. It’s beautiful. I can’t believe how much I’ve missed simple humanity. If his message is good he’s going to win. WE’RE going to, as Brinkley said about his campaign message this morning, “throw da bum out!”

The sheer level of POSITIVE here makes me want to cry like a frigging baby when I compare it to the current occupant of the Oval Office.

Everyone knows that Joe is a decent man, so he had tons of goodwill already stored up to survive this malicious character assassination.

I have faith Joe will emerge stronger than ever. There is nothing anyone can say that will change my mind about him. Im looking forward to his SMART, beautiful and ever so gracious wife become FLOTUS. Someone whose not a bimbo.

Biden Posts 6-Point Bump Among Likely Democratic Voters Amid Campaign Launch


Any concerns that those stories may dampen his support with women and black women is not yet borne out by the data. If anything, Biden’s advantage over the field relies heavily on edges with those groups: Among women overall, Biden jumped 8 points in the last week..

https://morningconsult.com/2019/04/29/biden-posts-6-point-bump-among-likely-democratic-voters-amid-campaign-launch/

I'm guessing a lot of women felt like I did about it.

4. Wonderfful!

 

As I sit here penned in one room getting carpet and wood flooring it is so heartening to watch that warm, great man who was our VP for 8 good years.

What a refreshing message after listening to the hateful messages from Trump, McConnell and the do nothing Republican party for years.

Contrast him to Mitch who said he would be the Grim Reaper if they keep the Senate by refusing anything Democrats wanted to do. The evil pours out of men like that!

We need to clean house!

He is working class to the bone.. black working class, white working class, all races.. just the working class.. his friends are not at a private golfing club in Florida.. or intellectual elites who end up talking down to people instead of eye to eye.. he is just real.. will serve him well..

9. He should definitely play that. The distant, disengaged golfer

 

who literally charges people to interact with him versus the guy in the pizza parlor actually yelling “HEY!” as he recognizes people and talks about their memories together. As he tells a young musician how little musical talent he has. As he takes selfies with the young Latino men. As he black-handshakes the young black man. And not a single bit of it looks contrived.

This is what we are, America. This is greatness.

It is a debate we must have. None of our women candidates are doing great in the primary. I say this as a woman who wants to see a woman president. But I want Trump out more. Palin helped McCain lose....we don't want a situation like that.

if Trump gets too hot for Russia and Republicans to handle.

They may also decide to add Nikki Haley to any ticket- a solidly patriarchal but serious female my become attractive to them.

...but it is very early.

36. I think a woman can win. Male presidents have not

 

been able to secure the human rights of women. This is the election cycle in which candidates need to address that reality. If not now, when?

Leaning in to misogyny so that we can possibly roll back the latest tsunami of misogyny doesn't work. We are lie the Ancient Greek whose humanity was reduced to struggling to a boulder up hill, only to have it roll back down as he approaches the top-and the "gods" expects that he must do this over and over again.

I watch the vilification of Anita Hill with an 8 year old girl, whose eyes teared up as she asked me "Why are they believing the man and not the woman." That eight year old has now suffered through some of the same indignities I did.

It is this slow seepage of the message of inequality that so destroys us and victimizes, our children, and our grandchildren. Sociologists tell us that we are unlikely to reach a no-discrimination human status for well over 100 years.

Enough is enough. I do not want to have a beer with Joseph Biden. I want him to get up to speed now.

says to the reporters can you move please, we don’t want anyone getting hurt, and Joe says something like, I can hear it now, Biden kill reporter with car. He’s just so comfortable in his own skin, been through this, loves it and I really think he genuinely loves all the folks he meets.

21. One of the commenters said "that's who Joe is --

 

people are just coming up to him, regular guy, hiya, Joe..."

The reason I fell for Joe in 2007 is he was the only one actually answering the questions in the debates like he was just talking to us, not the political lines the others were delivering (ALL of them, except Mike Gravel ) He's just a real guy and sincerely cares about people.
