Is Joe Biden’s Campaign Doomed?

As the gaffe prone Joe Biden continues to enjoy the taste of his foot out on the campaign trail, it has caused some to wonder if the former VPs current bid for the White House is doomed.

Among those who think so is well known conservative journalist, Daniel McCarthy. Writing in Spectator USA, McCarthy said, “Joe Biden has led Democratic polls since day one. But there are plenty of reasons why you should still bet against the former vice president getting the nomination or getting into the White House.”

The biggest problem? “His age and its effects on his mental acuity,” says McCarthy. “At 76, he is showing signs of senility more than Bernie Sanders (77) or Donald Trump (73) are. And those infamous gaffes of his are increasingly worrying, because they just keep coming.”

The question, says McCarthy, is, “How many will it take before voters seriously question his competence? True, Biden’s name recognition is tremendous, but voters are surely remembering the Biden of the Obama years, and not necessarily today’s iteration.

McCarthy says that Joe simply will not win. “Should he make it past the primaries, he won’t seem like a pair of safe hands with which to restore America to ‘normal.’ ”

Biden Is Too Old

While Biden may be the “great hope” of the Democrats, McCarthy says he is simply too old – and the conservative pundit is not the only one who thinks so. Many say that Biden himself knows that his age and state of mind are a problem, and Glenn Thrush’s recent New York Times story showed that Barack Obama knows it, too. “At some point in 2008,’ Thrush reports, ‘while Biden was on his way to becoming the Democrats’ VP pick, he told Obama aides that ‘Barack would never have to worry’ about him positioning himself for another presidential run. He told Obama he was ‘too old…’”

That was over a decade ago. Today, according to Thrush, while he has accepted that Biden is running, “Obama has hammered away at the need for his campaign to expand his aging inner circle.” According to Thrush, Obama also told Biden’s people, “Win or lose, [Biden’s people] needed to make sure Mr. Biden did not ‘embarrass himself’ or ‘damage his legacy’ during the campaign.’”

Thrush says Biden told him that he never “got over” his past failed bids for the White House. Biden told Obama he would never run for president again, yet now he is. His ambition has blinded him to this simple reality — his time has not come, it’s already past. His campaign is doomed, McCarthy knows that, and as soon as Democratic voters decide between Sanders and Warren, they’ll let Joe know it too.

      Joey ‘touchy feelie’ biden, the white flunky to barry obozo the black POS that took America for an 8 year long luxury vacation on the hardworking taxpayers dimes. And what did middle class Americans get out of this but, ZILCH, And the real outrage: the liberal lying, liberal thieving black bastard left Washington with over $40 million dollars !Math was one of my best subjects all through school and the figures just don’t add up. His annual salary was in the neighborhood of 350 – 400 thousand dollars per year, and after the 8 year rape of America, the math just doesn’t add up to 40 million. Got a great idea: how about investigating joeys son for dealing with the ukraine and stop the witch hunt on Donald Trump.Yalk about a double standard. Really the liberals are all running scared ’cause they know most of Americans are tired of their do nothing for America and the American people BULLSHIT and obstructionism they’ve done over the last 3 years of Donald Trumps presidency. Instead they’re acting like spoiled brats on the school yard ’cause they lost big time in 2016. They need to suck it up and work with the Republicans to move America forward for the good of all America, not just a select few..

    TRY AGAIN. WE ARE GETTING TO NORMAL! WE NEED 4 MORE YEARS TO CLEAN UP OUR FORMER PRESIDENTS MESSES THAT HE
    CREATED TELLING US HE WAS GOING TO FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGE AMERICA…AND THAT HE DID. THE GAY AGENDA AND NOW WE
    UNDERSTAND WHY THAT IS THE WAY IT IS. WE did not initially know who our former president was..Some did, of course,
    who his lovely bride was. Now we know. Fundamentally, allowing criminals to sneak through our borders to get more
    votes for people like our former President. Having officials that favor our former President’s thinking and look
    the other way at criminals. The gay agenda took over and had to have ONE TO HAVE THAT HAPPEN. Schools are messed
    up with the help of our former First Lady with her diet plan that the world HAS recovered from. Did they know
    NOTHNG? We have our major cities messes as homeless that came in through Obama’s free for all borders and Mayors
    looking the other way at criminal activities…This IS AMERICA NOW AFTER THAT FORMER PRESIDENT WHO WAS PLANTED….
    Takes America a long time to see through the “smoke” and how a sick ADMINISTRATION could pull a hoax and spy
    on the next President because HE HAD THE POWER TO DO IT WITH ALL HIS CROOKS ON THE INSIDE. Yes, Trump will make
    even more strides to clean up Obama’s messes. Obama needs to crawl under a rock at his Mansion NOW AND LEAVE
    AMERICA ALONE AND KEEP HIS NOSE OUT OF THINGS LIKE SMOLLET IN “HIS PLACE WHERE KILLINGS TAKE PLACE CONSTANTLY…
    ….a Third World Country is EXACTLY WHAT WE’D GET WITH ANY OF THE CLOWNS RUNNING ON THE DEMOCRATIC TICKET.
    GOD SAVE US ALL. GIVE US 4 MORE YEARS OF TRUMP TO REALLY CLEAN UP OBAMA’S MESSES.

    Poor Joe doesn’t even know what state he is in but he says, “i am not nuts”. But would we want to trust him to know if he is in Russia or Iran or Korea, and to which Dictator he is talking? I don’t think he could hold his own with any of them and would end up trading the United States to another country for a few dollars.

      We can only hope that there are enough intelligent people that will vote for Trump!! There are millions of “Democrat”voters, legal and illegal. A huge number of them don’t have sense that God gave a chicken!!! So all who want to keep Trump will need to talk to relatives and friends. Many of them don’t realize exactly what the Democraps are trying to do to America and it’s citizens…None of it’s good!!

    Take a good hard look at Biden and you can easily see he is darn near ready for the final ride. He looks much older than Trump or Sanders and is slowly withering just like all of the democrats (socialist wannabees).
