- “During the Obama years, several months after James [Biden] joined a construction firm as an executive, the firm received a contract worth more than a billion dollars to build houses in Iraq while Joe oversaw the U.S.-led occupation of that country.”
From Ben Schreckinger (POLITICO):
During the Obama years, several months after James joined a construction firm as an executive, the firm received a contract worth more than a billion dollars to build houses in Iraq while Joe oversaw the U.S.-led occupation of that country.
That's unethical. I get that Tulsi Gabbard is a fake ass so she gives Joe a pass but what's the excuse for the bulk of the US media? Then there's the Biden's Ukraine issue. Ray McGovern (CONSORTIUM NEWS) explains:
In an interview with The National Interest, Joe Lauria put this episode in context:
“It was in February  when Yanukovych was overthrown, and just a few months later (in May), Joe Biden’s son and a close friend of John Kerry’s stepson, they both join the board of this Ukrainian gas company. And the name of that was Burisma Holdings,” said Joe Lauria, editor of Consortium News and a former correspondent for the Wall Street Journal. “So just after an American-backed coup, you have Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden and this John Kerry family friend joining the board of probably the largest private gas producer in Ukraine. They installed the new government, and as the bounty of this coup, Joe Biden’s son personally profited. He would not have gotten that job if Yanukovych was still in power,” Lauria told The National Interest.
Joe wants the Democratic Party's presidential nomination.
"Lying through his teeth" is exactly what Biden is doing and it's amazing that he thinks the Democrat Party will let him get away with such preposterous lies when hundreds of thousands of...
Joe Biden Is Lying Through His Teeth About Iraq
As Joe Biden apologizes for past positions, to include his affiliation with Segregationists, Danny asks Biden to apologize for something much bigger: his support for the Iraq war and the destruction it caused. @SkepticalVet @Antiwarcom @fortressonahill
Yes, let us ignore the fact that he architected the 1994 #Crimebill, voted for the Iraq War, associated with segregationists, sought donations from #Comcast who's fighting the 1886 law against contractual discrimination, his record player answer, and story on corn pop. #NoBiden
- I'm tired of politicians trying to score political points like Joe is doing here on the backs of dead or missing soldiers who are dead or missing because of Joe and his ilk sending them all over the world to fight stupid ass wars. Iraq, Afghanistan, vietnam, Libya etc etc etc.
The idea of Joe Biden running for president excited so many. The actual run? Not so much.
- As @JamilSmith says smartly here, this is Biden being Biden, which is Biden being a charming, "Heya Champ," grip-and-grin guy who is also Paleolithic.
In addition, Aamer Madhani (USA TODAY) adds:
After the session, Lenz said as she walked off stage Biden dryly remarked to her that she was “a real sweetheart.” She told USA TODAY that she found the Democratic presidential frontrunner’s remark condescending.
“It’s 2019, you shouldn’t be calling women sweethearts,” Lenz said.
Poor Joe. Every day the resistance to him builds. Stephen Gruber-Miller (DES MOINES REGISTER) reports:
Joe Biden’s support in Iowa has eroded as the former vice president has reintroduced himself to Iowans as a presidential candidate — and faced criticism from campaign rivals.
U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, at 22%, leads him by 2 points in the new Des Moines Register/CNN/Mediacom Iowa Poll, after Biden had topped three earlier polls this caucus cycle. The only other contender in double digits is Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, at 11%.
The poll of 602 likely Democratic caucusgoers was conducted Sept. 14-18 by Selzer & Co. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.
Biden’s standing has fallen in each of the Iowa Polls conducted since last year.
