A Biden Supporter Speaks

Unfortunately for him.

Jonathan Capehart, writing in today's Washington Post:

"Biden has been an asset to Obama and to the administration. He goes where the president can’t (figuratively and literally). He has that chummy nature that folks (and reporters) say is essential for politicians. More importantly, he has the foreign policy and Capitol Hill experience that have served this president well. So, while Biden might have had the worst week in Washington, it nowhere near warrants all this talk of immediate unemployment."

Okay, let's take it from the top:

"He goes where the president can’t (figuratively and literally)." 

Which could be said about any human being alive today in that same position.  He "goes."  Really?

"He has that chummy nature that folks (and reporters) say is essential for politicians."

Outside Washington and off the pages of the Washington Post Biden's "chummy nature" is viewed as being both condescending and stupid.  That "y'all" thing he does?  That ain't chummy.  It's fatuous.  And belittling.  And bizarre.

"He has the foreign policy and Capitol Hill experience that have served this president well."

No examples given.  No examples to be given.

But I might offer up this tidbit to suggest that Biden hasn't "served this president well."  Remember when he declared those in Afghanistan who were - and are - killing American soldiers and marines to "not be our enemy"?   Tell it to the Taliban, goofball.  That's the kind of foreign policy experience this Post scribe appreciates?

"So, while Biden might have had the worst week in Washington, it nowhere near warrants all this talk of immediate unemployment."

In fact Biden has had the worst three decades of any person in American history, starting in 1988 when he shared his family story - that was plagiarized right out of Neil Kinnock's family story.

And that's why those of us who want Obama gone want Biden to be there to the bitter end "serving the president well."
