I’m not saying that it’s time for Uncle Joe to go to the beach and stick his feet in the sand. I am saying what everyone else is thinking, many are saying, and what the “good-ole-boy” Democrat establishment is ignoring: it is time to put an end to Joe Biden’s time in politics.
Joe Biden is the definition of a career politician. He first held elected office on the New Castle County Council, in his home state of Delaware, in 1970 and two years later ran for the United States Senate and won — to the surprise of many. From 1973 to 2009, Biden served as one of Delaware’s Senators. During his tenure in the Senate, Biden ran for President twice: once in 1988 and once in 2008. Both times he did not win the nomination. However, as history will tell us, he ended up serving as President Barack Obama’s Vice President for two terms from 2009-2017. Now, seeing as Biden is consistently leading the polls among Democratic Presidential Candidates, I believe it is imperative to remind everyone Biden’s lack of both general and intellectual integrity.
Joe Biden is void of ideological consistency. This is apparent through his nearly fifty years of changing stances on issues when it becomes convenient to do so. For example, on abortion, he previously professed a “middle of the road” stance with support for states rights and the Hyde Amendment to now be in line with the progressive Left’s radical abortion policies. Another excellent example of this is his commitment to LGBTQ+ issues primarily because he has no genuine commitment to LGBTQ+ issues beyond pandering to win political points. Up until it wasn’t the Democrat Party’s moto operandum Biden endorsed “traditional marriage.” That being said, we can get a much deeper understanding of his loyalties if we analyze some critical components of his tenure in the Senate and his time as Vice President.
In the Senate, Biden supported NAFTA (1993), which encouraged US-based manufactures and businesses to lower wages and cut jobs. He voted in line with National Rifle Association to enshrine the rights of gun owners in 1986 on the “Firearms Owners’ Protection Act” and then moved to significantly restrict them with passage of the Brady Act in 1994. As Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Biden sullied the reputation of the Honorable Thomas Clarence during his confirmation hearing and embarrassed Ms. Anita Hill on a national stage; Biden effectively ruined the reputations of two good people to score political points. And last, but certainly not least, he opposed the First Gulf War but approved the invasion of Iraq while serving as the Chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee. These are only a few of Joe Biden’s many blunders and sketchy actions in the United States Senate.
As Vice President, he was imperative in garnering support for the 2009 stimulus package that was effectively useless in helping the economy recover from the recession and played an incredibly important role in the passage of the Affordable Care Act. We all know how the ACA played out.
Just recently, Biden’s shenanigans have landed him in hot water yet again. With his son, Hunter Biden, using his family name to land himself on the board of directors for Burisma, a Ukrainian natural gas conglomerate and this being the source for the recent political circus of impeachment hearings. Joe Biden is likely going to be subpoenaed before the Senate to provide information about this very topic, and this isn’t the first known instance of the Biden family’s sketchy foreign investments landing them in hot water, either.
So, I guess what I’m trying to say is: really? Joe Biden is seriously who the Democratic establishment appears to be uniting behind? Look, I get it; they have no strong candidates, but come on! This guy is ridiculous. If you are not disturbed by the clear fact that he is only in politics to serve his immediate self-interest, you should be put off by the fact that when he isn’t off rambling about some guy named “Corn Pop” and kids feeling his leg hair, his eye is exploding on live television, and his dentures are flying out of his mouth.
