Is Biden the 2020 Version of JEB! Bush?

The only thing missing is the guacamole bowls.

At this stage in the 2016 presidential primary JEB! was pretty much where Joe Biden is today. He was leading in the polls, had lots of funding and support from party leaders. But, a funny thing happened on the way to GOP Convention in Cleveland … Donald Trump took control and JEB!was left with a four-car garage filled with guacamole bowls..

Like a broken clock, Republican Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is right about twice a day. This could be one of those times.

House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy said Thursday former Vice President Joseph R. Biden is the “Jeb Bush” of this election cycle because he has “too much to apologize for.”

“I think Biden, no disrespect, is the Jeb Bush of this cycle. I think he could have run at a different time and he would have been the nominee. I think he has too much to apologize for,” the California Republican said Thursday at an Axios event, adding “Bernie Sanders has a much better chance” of winning the nomination due to his well-established base.

Former governor of Florida and presidential candidate Jeb Bush entered the 2016 race with high polling numbers, but he ended up suspending his campaign after a poor showing in the South Carolina primary.

Currently the frontrunner to face President Trump in the 2020 presidential election, Mr. Biden has faced many controversies since he entered the race, including his handling of the Anita Hill hearings, allegations of invading people’s personal state and a report saying he would find a “middle ground” for climate change.

    Who will be the first Dem to bail? Tulsi, Gillabrand, Amy the B!tch, De Blazio (last in, first out accounting) , Bennett, Hickenlooper, Inslee or the Montana governor I never heard of?

    I doubt even Biden would be dumb enough to insult his base like JEB! did … at least not on purpose.

    Jeb had a positive reputation as a competent governor.
    Biden only has a reputation for being re-elected. I’m not aware of any accomplishments.

    I’m probably wrong but agree with the assessment. Biden will fold. Maybe earlier than later.

    The problem for the Dims is there is no equivalent Trump in the bunch currently running.

    Biden 2020 = McCain 2008

    Going through the motions, even with a dynamic and young VP.

    It should be interesting. My question: is the clown car full or is there room for 1-2 more?

    Always room for a couple more in the clown car.
    Plus, if needs be, we can ship them off planet.

    Gun Control….

    [First House] Ha! gotcha! hand over the guns!
    [Second House] Ha! Whoa! Put down the gun!
    [Third House] Whoa! Bang! Bang! Bang! Officers down, Call the Bus!
    [Fourth House] Whoa! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Officers down on front lawn, Call the Bus!
    [Precinct House] Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Whoa! Request backup, they are breaking down the doors!

    Bye the bye, PoPo in Portland are leaving in droves. If the Progs in that city want to confiscate guns at the pace currently they are facing they, aka the city council, will have to do it themselves.

    Yahoo “Finance” tries to put at least SOME lipstick on the California “High-Speed” Trainwreck, by LYING about the “initial plan”:

    ==> “The initial plan was to build a line connecting San Francisco to Los Angeles, which would cost $79 billion. ”

    NOPE. The “initial plan” that the Democrats PROMISED when they suckered a bunch of MORONS (aka: “California Democrats”) into voting for it projected the cost at “$33 Billion”

    Then Yahoo “Finance” says this:

    ==> “It was estimated that it would have been completed by 2033. ”

    NOPE. The “initial plan” projected the rail would begin service in 2024.

    The current “plan” calls for it to cost $100 BILLION, and only connect Bakersfield and Fresno by the year 2038. But now the greedy politicians (redundant) in Sacramento will HOWL about how Trump is evil for trying to stop the rest of the country for having to pay for California’s INSANITY!

    Bakersfield and Fresno are two cities I would want to escape from (and I live in the Detroit area).

    bc3b: “Bakersfield and Fresno are two cities I would want to escape from

    well then, don’t take the “High-Speed Rail” in 2038…cause you’ll only be able to escape from one to the other! 🙂

    the amount of GRAFT that is being “lost” is staggering…gotta “pity” the poor graftsters!!

    One of the biggest losers of the high speed train cancellation is Richard C. Blum (Mr. Dianne Feinstein).

    Eph, it was never intended to…just another utterly fraudulently named bill that the Dems can claim Republicans are against. They would have named it the “Furry Kitten Bill”, but they already used that.

    WOW…even for the WaPo this is STUNNING white-washing and re-writing of history. Damn near EVERY sentence is bullshit…like this excretable:

    ==> “Fighting between Arabs and Jews in Palestine broke out the day after the Partition Plan was announced. While the local Arabs sought to prevent its implementation, Zionist militias sought to establish their rule — by force if necessary — over the areas slated as part of the Jewish state.”

    REALITY: The Jews were outnumbered 2:1 within what is now Israel…and THEN five nations, including Jordan, Syria and Egypt attacked in an effort to kill EVERY Jew within the what would be Israel…and beyond. The Grand Mufti WAS the leader of the Palestinian Arabs, and he called for the MASSACRE of all Jews…which his fanatic followers set about trying to accomplish.

    The rest of the WaPo article is equally awful. Arabs today are FREER within Israel than ANYWHERE else in the Middle East…and even hold seats in the Israeli Knesset. Jews and Christians are PERSCUTED in virtually EVERY Arab nation….as are the women of Islam.

    Interestingly, some feminist and lesbian groups came out against the “Equality Act”.

    Not so fast…. FacistBook is now scrubbing any graphics that have a Grand Mufti – Hitler connection. FacistBook may already be in the cellar and are continuing to dig.

    Yeah its the split in their ranks. One contingent NEEDS the classification of gender identity as a disease to have their drugs covered under insurance. The other contingent WANTS the classification stricken, with the equality act would eliminate.

    It would be easier if both sides of that fur ball would just say they are F’d up and go away.

    The divers of the muff have their panties in a bunch,

    Biden’s son and his escapades don’t help.
    2016 Arizona Police Report: Cocaine Pipe Found in Car Rented by Joe Biden’s Son Hunter Biden, Authorities Declined to Prosecute

    Also found in the vehicle were several personal effects of Hunter Biden, then-Vice President Joe Biden’s son, like two of his DC driver’s licenses, multiple credit cards, and personally identifying information like a Delaware Attorney General badge and a U.S. Secret Service business card that police said bore his name. Hunter Biden, according to the police report, had rented the vehicle from a location in California with the intent to return it to the Prescott, Arizona, location, where it was discovered the morning after it was dropped off with the drug paraphernalia and Hunter Biden’s personal effects inside.
