Disqualifying: Biden gave paid speech supporting repuke in 2018 [View all]

Biden has gotten away with so much garbage for so long, but this one is a dealbreaker in my book.

Biden got paid $200,000 to give a speech to a Republican-leaning business crowd in Michigan during which he praised GOP Congressman Fred Upton even as Democrats were clawing at his seat in the midterms, the New York Times reported Wednesday.

Though it wasn't a formal endorsement, Biden's speech praised Upton for his support of a piece of cancer research legislation (Biden's son Beau died of cancer in 2015) and called him "one of the finest guys I’ve ever worked with.” As the Times reported, that phrase quickly appeared in Republican advertising, and when Upton's Democratic challenger tried to get the former vice president to do something in response, “There was nothing but silence,” the candidate, Matt Longjohn, told the paper. (Upton ultimately won by 4.5 points, the smallest margin of his career.)


Upton is a "moderate" Republican who is antichoice and voted to repeal Obamacare, and Biden knowingly helped him win his race and ignored the Democratic challenger?

Sorry, but I support Democrats who support actual Democrats.

He didn't say anything about Upton's efforts to repeal ACA wellst0nev0ter May 2019 #225
My point goes beyond the implications for that particular election and is far more general andym May 2019 #297

Some hope for that if they can't have purity. BannonsLiver May 2019 #208

Did I miss the primary? Aren't we still choosing a general candidate? n/t TCJ70 May 2019 #210
Haven't you heard? Joe's the presumptive candidate wellst0nev0ter May 2019 #212
Couldn't care less. BlueTsunami2018 May 2019 #209
Wish Joe could've followed your advice wellst0nev0ter May 2019 #213

This stupid poll is Bernie supporters trying to discredit Joe calguy May 2019 #227
Point to where I'm a Bernie supporter wellst0nev0ter May 2019 #228
I just finished replying to a Bernie post shouting "disqualifying" and found that good sense emmaverybo May 2019 #229
But that would prevent virtue signaling and purity displays. BannonsLiver May 2019 #231
I am suspicious. Two DISQUALIFYING posts this morning, one upon the other, against Bernie emmaverybo May 2019 #246
The others were responses to this terrible OP. BannonsLiver May 2019 #247
You've got the order reversed...This one was posted, then a different poster... TCJ70 May 2019 #253
So this was a backatcha. It probably should be removed as well. All DISQUALIFIED postings emmaverybo May 2019 #264
No. This one (about Biden) was first. N/t TCJ70 May 2019 #265
I was corrected on that by two other members who said Bernie post was first. So I am still emmaverybo May 2019 #285
Mine was first wellst0nev0ter May 2019 #291
Solves that. nt emmaverybo May 2019 #292
Well...I only posted in one of the Bernie threads. TCJ70 May 2019 #306

Harry Cheadle, the author of the Vice hit-piece in the OP link, recommended 3rd party voting in 2016 lapucelle May 2019 #274
The piece is clearly satirical wellst0nev0ter May 2019 #280
No it isn't. lapucelle May 2019 #281
Any reasonable person who reads the quote you cited wellst0nev0ter May 2019 #283
Oh that Harry! lapucelle May 2019 #293
This further proves you're not interested in a good faith discussion wellst0nev0ter May 2019 #294
Alternately, perhaps the Harry Cheadle Vice hit piece you linked to is "satitical". lapucelle May 2019 #282
This is cringeworthy wellst0nev0ter May 2019 #284
Maybe you can add a voting option that reads: lapucelle May 2019 #289
He doesn't mock Stein. lapucelle May 2019 #286
... wellst0nev0ter May 2019 #290
You were done when you created the push poll still_one May 2019 #307
Brilliant, lapucelle! I was just looking up Harry and also saw he has a definite bias R B Garr May 2019 #309
And the gaslighting didn't work. lapucelle May 2019 #311
The OP is an epic fail. BannonsLiver May 2019 #312
And that one vote was from someone who was supporting Harris (not Biden) on May 10. lapucelle May 2019 #313
Yes, the gaslighting and shaming didn't work. R B Garr May 2019 #314

you change my mind about Biden ...... stonecutter357 May 2019 #324
Talk about bashing Democratic figures...complete with a poll !!! With friends like this.....nt UniteFightBack May 2019 #335
"With Friends Like These" wellst0nev0ter May 2019 #336
So fucking what with this OLD NEWS. Not interested and neither are the people who don't follow UniteFightBack May 2019 #338
We'll see how irrelevant it is wellst0nev0ter May 2019 #343
Oh yeah I'm sure we'll have plenty of time on the debate stage for everybody to say their piece.... UniteFightBack May 2019 #345
Someone will have to say it, if they want to be the candidate wellst0nev0ter May 2019 #347
If Biden wins the primary, saidsimplesimon May 2019 #329
I personally want a fighter for the Democratic candidate wellst0nev0ter May 2019 #337
I'm so sick of people and their bullshit dealbreakers when the country is burning down around them. UniteFightBack May 2019 #334
Didn't say I'll vote against him in the general wellst0nev0ter May 2019 #339
Yeah sharp elbows worked out great in 2016 huh? This is DIFFERENT....don't you get that? nt UniteFightBack May 2019 #342
This year will be worse. Look at the field. wellst0nev0ter May 2019 #346
Biden: "You will not hear me speak ill of another Democrat." OP are you listening? Doodley May 2019 #340
Me neither...I have not trashed other Dems in this forum...there is no reason for it...even UniteFightBack May 2019 #344
Not sure why you bring up Sanders wellst0nev0ter May 2019 #349
I repeat: wellst0nev0ter May 2019 #348
You give reasons to support Biden, because he"s happy to say when a lawmaker supports something good Doodley May 2019 #392
And that same lawmaker uses that praise wellst0nev0ter May 2019 #399
Fine. If you prefer to divide, carry on. Biden is a unity candidate as was Obama. You are welcome to Doodley May 2019 #400
Yes, I won't undermine a Democrat in favor of a repuke wellst0nev0ter May 2019 #401
You already have done. By saying Biden should be disqualified, you give succor to Trump supporters. Doodley May 2019 #411
So don't criticize Democrats wellst0nev0ter May 2019 #413
The OP loathes Biden BannonsLiver May 2019 #350

You Have Yet To Disprove The Contents wellst0nev0ter May 2019 #357
So not interested in a "good faith" discussion then. BannonsLiver May 2019 #358
Totally opposite of what I said wellst0nev0ter May 2019 #359
What am I supposed to "disprove"? BannonsLiver May 2019 #360
Biden gave a speech wellst0nev0ter May 2019 #361
Okay BannonsLiver May 2019 #362
Why don't you give a fuck? wellst0nev0ter May 2019 #363

Try editing your post again wellst0nev0ter May 2019 #376
I see no need for that. The choice was appropriate. BannonsLiver May 2019 #379
Probably because he, like me, is not offended by people behaving as decent human beings LongtimeAZDem May 2019 #365
Voting to repeal ACA is not decent wellst0nev0ter May 2019 #366
Which he did not do. He made a speech to a business group, and praised the cancer support work of LongtimeAZDem May 2019 #372
You clearly misread what I said wellst0nev0ter May 2019 #374
And that you find evil in Biden saying nice things about someone, anyone, is reprehensible LongtimeAZDem May 2019 #375
It's really sad actually. BannonsLiver May 2019 #377
I feel like I need a shower just for replying LongtimeAZDem May 2019 #383
Really ugly nasty stuff meant to divide BannonsLiver May 2019 #384

Biden gave a repuke campaign material wellst0nev0ter May 2019 #378
Like Biden, I refuse to lower myself to the level of the other side. LongtimeAZDem May 2019 #380
Playing smart is not "lowering yourself" wellst0nev0ter May 2019 #382
Is it by the individual response, or letter , or complete sentence? Peacetrain May 2019 #387
I just wanted to get a pulse from the Biden backers wellst0nev0ter May 2019 #389
Now that your question has been answered, perhaps you can answer mine. lapucelle May 2019 #393
I doubt people are worried about something that didn't happen, R B Garr May 2019 #396
His speech was written in repuke literature wellst0nev0ter May 2019 #398
More things that didn't happen. Now you're fabricating about R B Garr May 2019 #407
Try re-reading my post again wellst0nev0ter May 2019 #414
You should take your own advice and not embellish content, R B Garr May 2019 #416
You don't have to reply, you know wellst0nev0ter May 2019 #420
Biden wasn't there for his campaign so he didn't give R B Garr May 2019 #394
What a desperate fabrication. Biden didn't give him "campaign material" R B Garr May 2019 #395
