Joe Biden is and always was a stupid, venal, local politician.

Look at the smirk on Hunter

A large majority of voters in a new Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll said President Joe Biden should not seek a second term in office, with most saying either that he has been a bad president or that he’ll be too old to serve for four more years. 

Most respondents, at 71%, said they don’t think Biden should run again, compared to 29% who say he should seek a second term. 

Of those who said Biden shouldn’t run:

  • 45% said he is a bad president.
  • 36% said he’s too old.
  • 60% said they have doubts about his mental fitness. 
  • 26% said they believe it is time for a change. 

“President Biden may want to run again, but the voters say no to the idea of a second term, panning the job he is doing as president. Only 30 percent of Democrats would even vote for him in a Democratic presidential primary,” said Mark Penn, the co-director of the Harvard CAPS–Harris Poll survey.

Meanwhile, Biden came out as the favorite among potential Democrat candidates, but only netted about a third of the Democrats polled.”

Comment: Delaware is a tiny state, much the equivalent in its political dynamic to an American county that has several small cities within it. Wilmington has roughly 70,000 inhabitants. Dover, the capital, around 35, 000. The whole state has 1 million inhabitats. That includes the military at Dover AFB. In a place like that a dumb but anxious hustler can dominate the scene with his “crew.” Patronage, political favors and small-time graft are the recipe for success.

Joe reminds me of an uncle by marriage of my wife up in small town Maine (York County). This guy was a very greedy and ignorant fish in a small pond. When my wife and I were newly married, I was stationed in Massachusetts. Her mother lived in York County, so we visited up there a lot. This uncle told me various silly things. He went on and on one day raving about the evils of THE PENTAGON!! This was, of course a talking point from the Democratic Party which contained its usual complement of lefties. I asked him if he understood that he was talking the US armed forces. “No! he said. “That can’t be! How would you know that?” “Well,” I said, “I AM a lieutenant in the army …” “That can’t be. You are just a kid.” He had been present at our wedding, a wedding in Blues. The Democrats ran this moron for Congress. He lost. The resemblance to small town Joe is striking.

I used to deal with Joe when he was a senator. His slowness, lack of knowledge and education were striking. pl

    He won’t win re-election. Only if Trump runs and does something egregiously stupid, well beyond his standards, could Biden win.

    The photo is priceless beyond words or asset valuation by humans or continent-wide server farms running 25th century AI in parallel. 28th century AI running on Quantum computing server plantations will take one look and reach for the bourbon after unplugging in protest.

    • Fourth and Long says:

      The visage appalls and disorients so completely and rapidly that I took a break, asking myself in silence: Surely this man, this spectre of eminence deserves his very own catchy easy to recall moniker along the lines of the unforgettable: Tricky Dicky?

      Failing the task at first with his first name Joe, I considered resigning but then a cloud opened to pierced the empyrean with a saving ray of grace: Atrocious Joseph.

      Forgive me, Almighty creator of the Universe. I have broken one of the 613 commandments, only ten of which are commonly known. Not to publicly disparage a high ranking official, ruler or person of eminence.

  3. Babeltuap says:

    He was originally going to run as a Republican from what I read but it was going to be a much more difficult race so he ran as a Democrat. It had nothing to do with actual political views.

    Some say Delaware has more financial corruption than anywhere in the world. As the saying goes it’s easy to register a company in Delaware than get a library card and it’s not a joke. Somebody showed it was a fact.

    • Steve+G says:

      Wasn’t he referred to as the
      Senator from American Express ?

    • Fourth and Long says:

      I read years ago that Nixon immediately recognized Biden as a “kindred soul” in some sense or other. He told his henchmen to make contact with him in such a way as to be able to maintain close contact, seeing no doubt that such a jellyfish could come in very handy. The Democratic party completed the phase transition to a purely gaseous state under Bill Clinton.

  4. scott s. says:

    I think historically Delaware was a lot like Maryland and Virginia, in that they were really two states — north and south. I guess old Joe was able to sell himself as a man of the south though I suspect that was just a political game.

    • Fourth and Long says:

      It was the colonial and American gunpowder and explosives center originally (not counting the first three trillion years). DuPont was a marquis or some such in Croissant land. Delaware his family fiefdom via his huge Chemical company. Now you should know the Duponts were in an earlier era the wealthiest family by far in the US, exceeding Rockefeller, Carnegie etc. For some reason you don’t hear much about them. The de la in Delaware suggested to me French influence but it’s usually explained incorrectly as a Native American tribe’s name. Wiki says named after a Thomas West 3rd Baron De La Warr. He was a chemist and associate of LaVoisier but kept his head on his shoulders in the early days of the USA. De La Warr certainly suggest “of the war” (Warr would not sound like ware (pottery, merchants) or its homophone “where.”) So you’ve got that and gunpowder/explosives headquarters. And the Senator from there is president and:

      A) Sending vast quantities of munitions over there, over there , which cost money
      B) Conducting what appears to be a war with Russia of all places
      But it was early Military Industrial Complex central, for sure.

      Most wealthy family in good ol USA in its heyday.

    The winds of change have turned to a gail.Bet you a dollar it will pop up this month.Then he is gone

  6. MapleLeaf says:

    There is talk about Hillary running again… something about timely plastic surgery…

    If the democrats do that, I can’t imagine there would be much of a party left after that election.

    • Bill Roche says:

      ML the question is “what party”. The democrat party expired with FDR’s admin. Socialist since ’32, they’re out of the closet. Media, and academics have revealed their fascist selves, and the air heads in Hollywood go along to get favorable press. Socialists openly admit their desire to destroy America (catch the recent “Fluk the Fourth” parties?), and equity seems to attract the young over merit. The GOP fell to the RINO pros. in ’48 who don’t give a ship about the republic as long as they get “their” seats/money. The American political landscape is depressing. The only chance for American revival seems to be a old fashioned Libertarian/Conservative GOP Cavalry charging over the ridge. Want to give me odds on that one? So who do you like. I’ll take Trump and the pretty girl from Hawaii.

  7. Fourth and Long says:

    Sorry didn’t proofread. Dupont was the marquis chemist friend of Lavoisier , not De La Warr who was earlier and English.

  8. TV says:

    Delaware is not only tiny. Cut off the few seaside towns and you’re left with a flat, not affluent ugly place and Eagles fans.

  9. There is little hope.

    Replacement if he resigns is Harris who is as dippy as he is, if not worse.
    Trump is no prize.
    De Santis might be competent, but is a neocon.
    A Hilary victory would be proof God hates us.

    • Bill Roche says:

      U R Rite that Trump is no prize but he is the best of all possibilities. If only the Rinos and socialists had given him four years b/t ’16 and ’20. If only we could have had an add’l 4 years today. Instead we got 2 fingers Joey. Is that better?
      As to your thoughts re De Santis, you might be right. I smell a mouse??

      • Deap says:

        When you turn the sound off, Trump’s body language message is “I’m gonna kick butt”. That is the source of his appeal. And that is what he does.

        But you have to turn both the sound off and the media noise off, in order to hear that Trump message.

        • TTG says:


          Mussolini had the same stage appeal and message.

          • Deap says:

            TGG, Were the people ready for Mussolini or did Mussolini create the people? I don’t see the similar malignancies between the two – be glad Trump is more buffoonish.

            But the Zeitgeist of the times may have untold similarities, and will get ahead of any one person.

            I see another period of random violence now being a message in its own right – another period of anarchy, as we have experienced in the past. Will this self-correct or will it yet again convulse?

            Time to re-read Barbara Tuchman’s “The Proud Tower” when she claimed therapists at the time could foretell WWI was on the horizon, just from hearing their patients troubled dreams. Dark clouds were forming at a collective psychic level.

          • Bill Roche says:

            Coming from north of Albany you just don’t appreciate the nuance, tone, and refinement of a metropolitan New Yorker. I do. We are direct, but it ain’t personal, and it’s not intended to offend. As to message I think Trump’s is simple … America first and let the devil take the hindmost. Does politics need to be more subtle than that? Media noise is never intended to be informative. Turn it off. Its purpose is to deceive. Nixon used to say, watch what I do not what I say and not what the media says. It was good advice. Of course if you like slick there is always Romney, Sununu, Cornyn, or Portman. But they are loyal to no one, not even their fellow rinos. We need bold, even if it is brash. Hey didn’t Trump go to PMI? Wasn’t that a military establishment.

          • TTG says:

            Bill Roche,

            I grew up in a small Connecticut town, but did spend four formative years at RPI. Met the girl who was to become SWMBO in my freshman year. I was drunk as a skunk at the time.

            You’re right about me not having an appreciation for the pushy, brash NYC types. I’m sure there’s some fine people among them, but I’d rather avoid the place and the people if possible. Trump’s message is Trump first. The America First rhetoric is just a means to an end. I doubt he hate this country, but if the choice is between what’s good for him and what’s good for the country, he’ll save himself in a New York minute.

  10. Deap says:

    There is a very special moment in the recent and excellent documentary about Justice Clarence Thomas, where Judiciary Chair Joe Biden confronts SCOTUS nominee Clarence Thomas over “natural law”.

    Clarence Thomas provides a voice over for this video clip, where Biden in almost a conspiratorial tone claims he knows the full meaning of “natural law” and he knows Thomas knows what “natural law is, but Biden goes on to declare few other people know what “natural law” is, while seeming to make some point in the questioning of nominee Thomas, who sat silent during this Biden exhortation.

    Now years later, Thomas admits he did not know what the heck Biden was trying to get at, and why Biden kept emphasizing their joint superior insider knowledge about “natural law”.

    Natural law to Thomas by all prior word and deed was nothing more than what is expressly set out in the US Constitution – inalienable rights endowed by our Creator – not laws created nor endowed by any government or body of men.

    Natural law is a fundamental underpinning of our US governance principles. This is no secret. It is a founding principle and its interpretation is a basic part of the job description for any SCOTUS candidate – it is part of the rules book.

    Yet Biden was treating this fundamental principle like it was an in-house secret only known to those how knew the secret handshake and password. No wonder Thomas years later finally admits he did not know what the heck Biden was talking about.

    This was just one of many odd moments in the fulsome life of Joe Biden which has been lived primarily in the public eye.

    Yet, few have blinked with the appropriate incredulity as this lifetime fool. Such is the respect we have for the will of the people of Delaware – and their duly elected representative. However, that respect does not transfer to the alleged 81 million voters who installed this very same fool as now our POTUS.

    One is left to still wonder what was the internal conversation that led Obama to pick Biden as his VP? Did Obama see Biden as a “clean white guy” who was too stupid to get in the way?

  11. Dolores O´Neil says:

    A wedding in blues means in uniform?

    The Pentagon has quite an ammount of evils indeed….all those billions lost whose spending is impossible to justify come to mind…

    • Pat Lang says:

      that ignorant? you don’t belong here. officers buy their own uniforms from a tailor. enlisted people are given then. know what enlisted people are?

  12. Dolores O´Neil says:

    One of the tasks for rebuilding the US Republic passes through erasing tax havens like Delaware where all the corrupt go to wash their corruptly earned money…

    • Fred says:


      “…erasing tax havens like Delaware where all the corrupt go…”

      That statements shows an ignorance of the US similar to that of Nobel Prize winning economist David Card of UC Berkeley. He “failed” to recognize all the drug money in Miami in the 80’s might have had something to do with wages not falling when tens of thousands of immigrants were sent over by Castro in the early ’80s. Steve Sailor wrote up a nice explanation over at his blog years ago.
      Never let a fact get in the way of ones ideology. Corporations aren’t moving to Delaware to avoid taxes; and neither are people.

      • Deap says:

        Ease of incorporation and lower costs with fewer hassles (state corporate taxes lower too) made Delaware an attractive site for incorporation; a state that apparently needed a steady revenue raiser when it had little else to offer.

        Offered full employment for Delaware’s resident lawyers to guide and monitor this process and post incorporation duties. No wonder Hunter Biden had such a gift for creating so many new business entities.

        Not unlike the history of Nevada becoming the mecca for divorce decades ago requiring only a short “residency”, as well as being the one state that supported legal prostitution. See “The Misfits” for more illustration of Nevada’s one time claim to fame as the Divorce Capitol of America.

  13. Deap says:

    Talk about an “offensive campaign” – Hollywood Libs in 2016 demand GOP electors committed to Trump stage an insurrection and not vote to install a incompetent person unsuited to the office of President, when casting their Electoral College votes.

    They, oh so earnestly, claim this is what Alexander Hamilton would have wanted:

    Rest assured these very same Hollywood pundits stayed very quiet in 2020.
