Dread it. Run from it. Destiny arrives the same or shall I say it’s here.
Former VP Joe Biden has officially kicked off his bid to win the 2020 Democratic nomination for President on Thursday morning with the video below. It wasn’t a huge surprise that Joe is getting in the race but some who thought they had a chance, it just jumped out of the window.
Since President Donald Trump unexpectedly won in 2016, Biden has been a sharp critic of the president’s foreign policy and political rhetoric and campaigned across the country for Democrats in the 2018 midterms. But Biden is faced with a leftward push among some of his Democratic primary competitors that he has been reluctant to join.
“If we give Donald Trump eight years in the White House, he will forever and fundamentally alter the character of this nation,” Biden said. “Who we are. And I cannot stand by and watch that happen.”
Thursday’s announcement marks the unofficial end of the chaotic early phase of the 2020 presidential season. The field now features at least 20 Democrats jockeying for the chance to take on President Donald Trump next year. Several lesser-known candidates may still join the race.
Biden, a 76-year-old lifelong politician, becomes an instant front-runner alongside Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who is leading many polls and has proved to be a successful fundraiser . Among Democrats, Biden has unmatched international and legislative experience, and he is among the best-known faces in U.S. politics.
But the anti-establishment wave that swept Trump into office has not been kind to either party’s statesmen. Biden’s team worries about his fundraising ability and his tendency to commit gaffes. His centrist approach in a party moving left on major policy debates raises questions about his appeal. [Associated Press]
The announcement came before 6 am. He should have waited until around noontime to announce, doesn’t he realize the majority of his electorate does not work and are still in bed? I know Sleepy Joes voters better than he does.
Let’s face it. Joe is still asleep in bed. He’s letting his staff do this for him. If he were to win the election, he’d do the same thing: Sleep through his Presidency and delegate all behind-the-scenes work to his chosen activist-advisers. He claims eight years of Trump would change America. The left said it wanted “change” during Obama’s regime, and those changes were the ones attempting to change this nation fundamentally. Four more years of Trump will prevent the far left from destroying the country.
The corrupt DNC decides who the nominee will be, Democrat voters don’t even count as the Dems own emails proved. The liberal press has already been instructed to turn on Biden because the DNC doesn’t think he can beat Trump.
It is funny how some of the same people that complain about “life-long” politicians are some of the same people who would consider voting for a “life-long” politician like VP Biden.
