Biden, and his son, and Pocahontas

THIS bothers me.  Biden, though his team denies it now,  might have been the source of a NY Times column by Maureen Dowd that revealed an emotional moment when the dying son encouraged his father to run for president.

It bothers me because I’m not sure what to make of it.    Biden’s always been a ‘touchy feely’ guy and I daresay he’s ‘used’ the terrible death of his wife and daughter years ago in the car crash, but can he NOT?   This is part of his past and so, when things come up which are similar to that, he brings it up.  That’s not for political purposes, I wouldn’t think.

This thing about his son is also something that makes sense….it’s very touching to think your dying son would ask you to run.  What’s really wrong about revealing that?

But there’s a lot of discussion on this now and I wondered what you thought.

And what do you think are Biden’s chances, and I really fear his picking Pocahontas Warren as VP candidate.   I think they could win in this nuts world of infantile progressives….

  1. Did Biden’s son really say that he wanted his father to run for POTUS?

    Biden has been known to engage in confabulation. I know a lot about this phenomenon because Mr. AOW had a period of confabulating after his stroke in 2009.

  2. Could a Biden-Warren ticket win? Pretty good chance, IMO. 😦

    I’m going to give him the benefit of the doubt because the tragedies he has faced are real and I would imagine they would change your life and the way you see the world. I think a Biden-Warren ticket would appeal to the lo-fo voters and their numbers are overwhelming everyone else.

    Thanks for the compliment Z. I don’t think it’s personalities anymore. I think the beast has as much of a chance to win as Biden if she is the candidate. People are either solidly committed to democrat or not or the brighter ones are anti-politician which is either Carson or Trump.

    obama twice proves too many people don’t care about the issues or the character of the president.

    Seven years ago I would have said NO CHANCE WHATSOEVER. Now, especially after B.O.’s reelection, I would not be surprised at anything. In fact the more absurd the more likely in a nation that has, apparently, taken complete leave of rationality.

    I don’t blame Biden for using his son like that. I know I did after my son died. It was not for material gain, and I forget exactly what the reason was, but I remember telling him (in my mind) that I was going to use him and to not say a word(!!!).

    Biden’s story is believable, and I would think that his son would say, “Good job, Dad.” for using the memory of his son that way.

    I believe the point should be, how mentally stable is Biden, and how is he apt to react in a crises situation if he were President? People handle stress differently. You can’t be moody when drastic decisions need to be made. When it comes to this, I believe either Trump or Carson would be a lot better.

    And Biden could never handle this….cause Obama can’t either:

    The Russian’s seemingly endless pursuit to mock, taunt and troll the Obama administration ramped up today when the Kremlin released secret video of a meeting with U.S. officials – posting it for all to laugh at on YouTube.

    Russia secretly taped their first “deconfliction” meeting with U.S. officials and put it on YouTube http://t.co/UuezUByouX @barbarastarrcnn

    — Josh Rogin (@joshrogin) October 7, 2015
    It would be funny, if it weren’t so humiliatingly tragic. The fact that the Russian’s are brazen enough to record and publicly release any part of a supposed confidential meeting with U.S. officials is a freighting prospect.

    The meeting was held to discuss “air safety,” and to add insult to injury, Russian fighter jets took to the Syrian skies to literally push American jets out of Syrian airspace. As CNN reported, Russian planes came within 20 nautical miles of U.S. planes, forcing them to retreat. The U.S. is losing its superpower status at an alarming rate, if it’s not completely gone already.

    And the Russians are enjoying rubbing our collective noses in it.

    Imp; Here is another paragraph from that article..”Conservative Americans and those in the world are seeing Barry falling apart at the seams when he goes against Putin. They see a weak- kneed, lying, war mongering punk against a well educated, confident and successful leader. President Putin can stand alone and speak without a teleprompter or notes and argue reasonably. He can give interviews anytime without worry because he does not have to try to remember a lie or wonder what to say. He only has to gives facts which are easy to remember. His conservative economics and religious views are admirable in their eyes.”

    Remember a few months ago when Leftwingers were slamming us that “we like Putin” because we thought he was showing more strength than our milquetoast?

    I don’t agree; I think he does speak very softly and WAAAAAAAAAAAAAY to softly and deliberately not to drive my personality nuts, but, while he’s made some real dumb faux pas, he usually speaks truth and unpolitically correct.

    He’s being slammed now for having said the holocaust wouldn’t have been so bad if more Jews had guns…….hmmmm I think a few Jews might have escaped had they had fire arms, but…that wasn’t brilliant.
    Nor was it smart to say people go into jail straight and come out gay so gayness is a choice. oy. That’s hardly a valid suggestion on the sociology of homosexuality!
    He also just said that passengers on Flight 93, which crashed on 9/11, helped avoid further tragedy by rushing the gunman….what? they all DIED, it crashed, what further tragedy could there have been? Maybe crashing into a big city, come to think of it? That would probably have been impossible for a terrorist to have done, but I could be wrong???

    It pays well to be a gubbmit toady…

    According to a study of data from the Bureau of Economic Analysis, conducted by the Cato Institute, compensation for federal workers is 78% higher on average than compensation for private sector employees.

    “Federal civilian workers had an average wage of $84,153 in 2014, compared to an average in the private sector of $56,350,” according to the Cato review. “The federal advantage in overall compensation (wages plus benefits) is even greater. Federal compensation averaged $119,934 in 2014, which was 78 percent higher than the private-sector average of $67,246.”

    To put this in perspective, the federal government has “the fourth highest paid workers in the United States, after utilities, mining, and the management of companies.” The government pays better than information services, the financial sector, the insurance industry, and scientific industries. Federal compensation is more than double what the education industry receives, and over three times what retail workers make.
