A huge scandal may be the end of Joe Biden’s presidential run.
But he’s got one chance to turn everything around.
Joe Biden couldn’t answer this one question his entire campaign depends on.
Tara Reade’s allegations of sexual assault came at a bad time for Joe Biden.
If it wasn’t for the coronavirus bringing campaigning to a halt, it would be easier for Democrats to sweep the issue under the rug.
Joe Biden’s chief rival for the Democrat nomination, Bernie Sanders, hasn’t used any of the most damaging attacks against Joe Biden.
Bernie Sanders didn’t mention that Biden’s memory doesn’t seem to be what it once was, that Biden used taxpayers’ dollars when he was Vice President in a way that helped out his son’s business and that the way he acts around women comes across as creepy.
While Bernie Sanders was in the race, the mainstream media could somewhat justify not mentioning the sexual assault allegations if Sanders didn’t mention them, but now Sanders is out of the race and the media is out of excuses.
What Joe Biden needs to do if he wants to turn his campaign around and generate positive media attention for himself is come up with positive solutions to the coronavirus crisis.
Unfortunately for him, Joe Biden doesn’t have any solutions to the coronavirus crisis and getting Americans back to work.
His only solution is for the government to spend more money.
According to the Washington Examiner:
Democrats and most of the national media have signaled that they feel perfectly at ease with an extended national economic shutdown, and the former vice president reminded us of that, saying in an interview Friday with Politico that he wants another multitrillion-dollar coronavirus response bill. This one, he said, would need to be “a hell of a lot bigger” than the $2 trillion relief bill that Congress passed last month.
Because Biden is quoted as saying “hell” and “son of a bitch,” Politico’s Michael Grunwald felt justified in describing the interview as “fiery,” but for those who read it, it would more accurately be characterized as “uncomfortable” or “unhelpful.”
Biden said in the interview he wants to print more money for unemployment benefits and to start up on various “green energy” projects, but he said nothing about the desperate and urgent need to move people in this country back to their jobs.
Biden, wrote Grunwald, “[S]ounded comfortable” talking about managing a massive stimulus spending bill, “[A]lthough there were a couple of typically hard-to-follow tangents, and one brief coughing interruption that [Biden] attributed to swallowing a peanut the wrong way.”
But, again, no word from the former vice president about people returning to their normal lives.
Joe Biden already risked being seen more as part of the Democrat Party’s past rather than its future.
The federal government can’t endlessly keep adding to the national debt.
America needs real solutions and Joe Biden doesn’t have any.
Biden is an old man who has neither ability or character, and right now America needs a competent president who can lead America through this crisis.
