Joe Biden Smells Like Desperation

Joe Biden doesn’t smell like the gasoline-soaked hill in Apocalypse Now, the hill Robert Duvall said smelled like “victory.” Nor does he smell like the “Teen Spirit” of Nirvana’s 1991 grunge hit.

No, Joe Biden now smells like desperation.

That’s because Biden turned in a measly fourth place performance in the Iowa caucuses — a result he called a “gut punch.”

Now, on the cusp of Tuesday’s New Hampshire primary, Biden is once again trailing in the polls. Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg are trouncing him.

So he decided to take a whack at Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, IN, releasing this campaign video on Saturday.

But nothing says Beltway Elitist like taking a swipe at a small city in the Midwest, am I right? And as for Barack Obama touting Biden as “the best Vice President” — why hasn’t Obama endorsed him?

Well, according to Biden that’s because he asked Obama not to endorse him. Which sounds about as legit as Hunter Biden getting the Burisma gig because of his mad skills in the oil industry. But hey, Caroline Kennedy just endorsed Joe, and she served as ambassador to Japan under Obama. So I guess that’s kind of like an Obama endorsement, twice removed or something.

At a Saturday rally in Manchester, NH, Biden continued to sneer at Mayor Pete’s small Midwestern city bona fides.

“I do not believe we’re a party at risk if they nominate me, and I do believe we’re a party at risk if we nominate someone who’s never held a higher office than mayor of South Bend, IN.”

Joe Biden also threw down the race card:

“The only Democrats to win the presidency is where we have overwhelming support from the African-American community and don’t take it for granted. That was true for Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama. It’s just a reality.”

“I do not take the American black vote for granted. I know how to earn it, and I’ve earned it.”

Reducing black voters to numbers. Yeah, that’s a good move in these racially sensitive days.

Reporters in New Hampshire also asked Biden if he was acting like Hillary Clinton in 2008, when she went on the attack against Barack Obama during the primaries. Perhaps Biden was doing the same to Buttigieg.

Well, that hit a nerve.

“Oh, come on, man! This guy’s not a Barack Obama!”

Now you know that in this heated primary season, Buttigieg isn’t going to take these insults. So at a town hall in Lebanon, NH, he swatted at Biden’s mockery:

“I also hear some folks saying, ‘What business does a mayor of South Bend, Indiana, have running for president?”

“To which I say, that is very much the point. There are so many communities, rural areas, small towns, industrial cities, and even pockets of our biggest cities who have felt completely left behind by the ways of Washington and who are tired of being reduced to a punchline by Washington politicians.”

Buttigieg also told students at Dartmouth College in Hanover, NH:

“Right now there are so many communities, so many Americans, small- and medium-sized cities like mine, that feel like Washington can’t even hear us. I’m here to carry those voices to Washington.”

Despite all the tough talk and the snarky new campaign, how is Joe Biden doing in New Hampshire?

Eh, not so good. At a party dinner in Manchester on Saturday night, Biden’s small group was stuck in a corner. A spokesman from the campaign explained that Biden supporters were out knocking on doors rather than attending the dinner. Well, maybe hitting the streets talking up voters is preferable to attending an event with political BS and a rubber chicken entree. Especially when your candidate is desperate.

But Joe Biden did get to speak at the party dinner, and he reverted back to the Democratic default position: bashing Donald Trump. Saying that Trump “has not a shred of decency,” Biden promised this:

“I’ll be damned if I’m going to stand by and lose this election to this man. We cannot let it happen.”

Sure, Joe, sure. First you have to win the nomination, and right now it’s not looking good for you in the Granite State. A late Saturday poll shows that Pete Buttigieg is on top in New Hampshire. But he has a long way to go and could tumble, too, and probably will at some point.

It’s fun watching the Democrats eat their own, isn’t it?

  • When I think of Joe Biden the cultural reference that comes to mind are the lines from the “Petticoat Junction” theme song… “that’s Uncle Joe, he’s a-movin’ kinda slow, at the junction…”

    One problem Joe has is that he comes from a family that feels no obligation to pay its debts:

    This is a reflection of the Washington elitism disease that he and many others there (including every Dem Senator running for President) are infected with.

    Aw and he was such a hands on sort of guy.

    “…………Biden turned in a measly fourth place performance in the Iowa caucuses — a result he called a “gut punch.””

    Every time this doofus opens his mouth he sounds like a bad actor channeling Humphrey Bogart playing Sam Spade in “The Maltese Falcon”. Or, if his reputation for corruption is to be believed, maybe Edward G. Robinson playing a gangster in “Little Caesar”…….. “If you ain’t outa town by morning you’ll be leaving it in a pine box…………..ya dirty rat!”

    It’s as if the only way he can relate to people is by playing the tough guy. Which rather suggests to me that in fact, deep down he understands just how weak and ineffectual he is. That’s OK ough guy Joe, we understand how weak and ineffectual you are too. And desperate.

  • Joe in PNG says:

    That Former President Obama has not officially endorsed anyone is very telling.
    He’s holding off until a clear winner emerges. It’s a matter of timing and influence.
    If he endorses a loser, he loses influence. So, he’s got to be very careful about the timing.

    Go too soon and pick a loser, and his endorsement becomes pretty much meaningless. Plus, he gets the hate of whoever the winner is.
    But, if he waits too long, then it become obvious he’s an opportunist.

    So, he’ll wait until the various wizards & prognosticators tell him that the signs are right and the insider polls favorable, then he’ll make his announcement.

    • Scott says:

      Obama is all about obama.. he’ll do whatever he thinks will benefit him the most.. nothing more, nothing less.. If he sees the writing on the wall that none of them can win, don’t be surprised if he decides not to endorse anyone…

      • Joe in PNG says:

        He may just hold off until the Convention, then give the bare minimum amount of lukewarm support to the eventual winner- enough to avoid too many accusations of indifference, but not so much that he gets lumped in with a loser.
        Basically, what he did in 2016.

        And if it’s Bernie, he’ll publicly position himself as a voice of reason, pulling the party away from the brink of dangerous extremism. Yes, it will have more to do with protecting his position from the wackos who’d purge him as a reactionary element at first opportunity, but image and substance are two different things with that man.

  • Eleanor says what you’re smelling is formaldehyde.

  • Jim Blackwell says:

    Buttigieg is NOT like Obama. Buttigieg has executive experience in office where Obama didn’t. So I guess Buttigieg is better qualified. LOL ….but so hugely underqualified so he has that similarity to Obama.
