The President remains the most qualified person in the country to serve in his role. This is just a fact! Despite what Dems will try to tell you about his lack of skill or inability to control his “outbursts” (where we come from, that’s called “standing up for what’s right), he’s accomplished so much already.
But Joe Biden? He doesn’t agree. In fact, he has very strongly-held opinions about who is the best man for the job – opinions he recently shared with the press, stirring on awkward silences and nervous laughter.
What’s so bizarre about his choice?
It’s Joe Biden himself.
- The Left often calls President Trump self-serving, but it seems as if Joe Biden is the one serving himself here. In an early December press conference, Biden told reporters that he considers himself to be the right man for the job.
- “I’ll be as straight with you as I can,” he said. “I think I’m the most qualified person in the country to be president. I’ve been doing this my whole adult life, and the issues that are the most consequential relating to the plight of the middle class and our foreign policy are things that I have — even my critics would acknowledge, I may not be right, but I know a great deal about it.”
- Was it a comment in passing – maybe just an allegory for the state of politics or even an attempt at gallows humor? As much as we consider it a joke, it seems there may be something more to his wild claims. The former Obama running mate also teased that he is mulling over the decision to run for the Presidency in 2020 shortly afterward.
- It’s no secret that Biden and Trump have experienced animosity toward each other. Both regularly hurled insults in the other’s direction during Trump’s time in office. Biden even went as far as to accuse Trump of eroding democracy in the West Wing, but does that make him qualified? Hardly. If being mad at the President was a qualifying factor, the entire Left would be writing up their campaign promises right now.
- Biden also took a few minutes of his “busy” day to insult Trump yet again. “I am a gaffe machine, but my God, what a wonderful thing compared to a guy who can’t tell the truth,” he said. “I’m ready to litigate all those things. The question is, what kind of nation are we becoming? What are we going to do? Who are we?”
These are big words for a man with so much scandal behind him. Like the mishandling of the 1991 Anita Hill hearings (she claimed Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas sexually assaulted her). Wonder how the #MeToo crew will feel about that?
