    If you want to beat him, go for the head

    ‘Gaffe?’ Who invented this nonsensical term? Its only common usage seems to be among political journalists and pundits, as a euphemistic cliché for politicians’ discrediting behavior. Do normal people, over the course of normal life, ever call it a ‘gaffe’ when somebody screws up? I’ve never heard a waiter accused of committing a gaffe for misstating a lunch special, or heard a corporate CEO who omits key earnings figures described as ‘gaffe-prone’. The word is reserved only for faltering politicians, to place their verbal embarrassments in a special category.

    With the DNC insiders covering for Biden’s decline it brings the question of why are they pushing Biden ?

    Is Biden’s doomed candidacy simply a place-holder for Her to try a 3rd time?

      @ AverageGazoo —  I’ve been thinking ever since Podesta dreamed up Russia Russia Russia within 24 hours after Her loss, that Russiagate was all “the Russians stole it from Her outright,  DO OVER!!!!! (2020).   I think the only thing need be done is declare an exploratory committee to the FEC a day before the convention,  convention is brokered, and She struts out on the stage to the theme of Air Force One with balloons falling and all that convention stagecraft, she’s anointed the nom and saves us all deplorables from ourselves.   4 more of tRump.

    You’re not the “most electable” if you regularly fail to articulate coherent thought?

    Gee, there’s a rational thought.

    I really don’t think he’s running on all cylinders. I wouldn’t say that just to be vindictive. There are plenty of other reasons to hate on him. He just doesn’t seem all there.

    Biden reminds me of my dad a couple of years before he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. I’m not saying Biden has that, but I really do think something in his brain just isn’t functioning properly. Saying one thing and meaning another, constantly. Getting people who have some things in common mixed up–for example, he keeps confusing Theresa May with Margaret Thatcher. Misremembering when important things happened, like the Parkland shooting and others.

    There’s something wrong, and it is a legitimate campaign issue. Who wants someone who might have dementia in the White House? Not I, anyway.

      He is definitely showing signs of some type of dementia. Plus like Hillary I don’t think he can take the campaign trail with all it entails – he is already showing signs of exhaustion.

        He’s been showing signs of exhaustion from day 1. He is no where close to keeping up with the competition in rallys, town halls, etc.

        Yet he’s still the front runner? WTF is wrong with this picture?

        Hey, we’re not stupid. Most of us call it like it really is.

        It’s pretty damn obvious to most Joe needs to retire. Yesterday is fine.

          If I’m not mistaken, he’s never made it through an entire primary. He’s a perennial dropout who looks winded 6 months before Iowa.  He’ll never make it to the convention, let alone go on an fight Trump in the general. Any one huffing that Joe-mentum is delusional.

        I agree. Joe got an offer he couldn’t refuse from the Establishment. Poor bugger…

      “Who wants someone who might have dementia in the White House?”

      Republicans.  It reminds them of the good ol’ days of the 1980s.

    Nothing works better for the MIC than having an empty suit in the White House.

    If that’s not an option, second choice is an intelligence asset.

    Third is someone with some serious skeletons on the closet. Luckily, almost every politician running for national office has those.

    Step aside, Joe!

    America needs someone more vigorous and robust.

    If Sanders or Warren had half as many “gaffes”, that were even half as bad, as Biden, then the obituary of their campaign would be all over the media.

    And just before that would be the scathing articles mocking their gaffes, and anger at the audacity of not immediately dropping out.

    Pretty soon Trump is going to ask when is the DNC going to take him out on a row boat and get rid of him, like with what happened to Fredo in The Godfather Part II. And then when Biden does have to drop out, it will be pandemonium if Trump’s numbers rise, as Biden supporters and detractors blame each other for that.

    You know it’s beyond sad that the PTB are working so hard to get this placeholder elected. And Americans are being force fed this fuzz-covered Spam. (Apologies to @pam2)

    I don’t think the DNC need him to win, but they

    do need him for a brokered convention. That

    is all that they want.

    Remember when presidential candidate John Kerry mistakenly called Green Bay’s beloved Lambeau Field “Lambert Field”?

    I thought he was going to be forced to withdraw on the spot.

    The problem is that the corporate media make so many mountains out of mole hills that when a candidate shows an actual pattern of possible cognitive decline  it disappears by the next news cycle or the latest rant from the Tweeter-in-Chief (whichever comes first).

    They covered for Bush’s incoherence; don’t know why they wouldn’t do it again, if it serves the interest of their owners.

    He isn’t mentally or physically capable of running a long campaign.  this is not an age thing, as Bernie and Liz are of his generation, and both are very active.

    Biden’s candidacy is doomed. He’ll be lucky to finish in third place in both Iowa and New Hampshire, and I bet he manages to lose South Carolina when the time comes. He’s a terrible candidate.
