Did Joe Biden sleep through the Obama presidency?

The tweet about Biden’s comments quickly drew derision. Journalist and activist Shaun King wrote that “Joe Biden is outrageously out of touch.” Rolling Stone senior writer Jamil Smith wrote, “Joe Biden is living in Wonderland. That he is asking us to join him there is rather astonishing.” Washington Post senior political reporter Aaron Blake tweeted: “Because they paid such a heavy price for obstruction from 2010-2016?”

CNN Politics reporter David Wright later released the 76-year-old’s full comments. “I think there is not a middle ground. I wish I had been known as a moderate, middle guy when I was running in Delaware all those times. And you know, anyway—but I just think, there is a way—and the thing that will fundamentally change things is with Donald Trump out of the White House. Not a joke. You will see an epiphany occur among many of my Republican friends. And it’s already beginning—in the House now,” Biden said. “You are seeing the talk, even the dialogue is changing. So look, let me put it another way. If we can’t change, we’re in trouble. This nation cannot function without generating consensus.”

Look I agree with that last part, but if Biden thinks that Donald Trump is responsible for the GOP’s refusal to compromise or reach across the aisle he is either naive or suffering from dementia. 

Does he not remember that Mitch McConnell gathered a bunch of Republican politicians before Barack Obama was even sworn in as President, and together they came to the consensus that they would block every single policy proposal that came out of an Obama White House? 

Obama to his credit at the time tried extremely hard to work along with the Republicans and had his hand slapped away every single fucking time. 

They rejected him, not because his ideas were bad but because they were good and they did not want to help him get the credit. 

That not only happened, but Biden was there when it happened!

Biden has to understand the world that we live in and not get all misty-eyed for the Republican party that he used to know because they simply no longer exist. 

At some point in the future, the Republican party might be forced to evolve in order to survive and at that point, they might be more willing to compromise and work with Democrats on solutions. 

But that will only happen with a strong no-nonsense Democratic leader in the White House. 

Not with some soft wistful old grandfather type stuck in the past and unable to see the reality right in front of his eyes.

    Biden’s too old and obsolete to be active politically. Love him. Find him endearing. He’s literally the crazy uncle joe who everyone loves. But fuck. He is the opposite of the answer.

      I am sick and tired of hearing ” he is too old” what a bunch of crap besides being age discrimination.

      Every person is different, maybe you are too old, in your mind.

    Has he met anyone in Congress? There was a reason he was silenced in 2008 and a wall flower for 8 years.

    There is also a reason the only thing that comes to mind about him as VP are funny memes that make you want to be his bff.

    Do not think VP Biden is going to have the support President Obama has had. He has a lot of history which does not work positively for him. If he wins the nomination he will get my vote, but I will not vote for him in primaries.

    If he gets the nomination, do we know if he would choose Hillary for VP?

    Sarah’s head would E X P L O D E.

      Hillary would not go for VP. She, too needs to move on out.
      IF Joe gets the nomination, can he choose President Obama as his running mate? What’s the rule on that? If Joe dies while in office, can Pres. Obama be president again?

    Sorry, but Biden is just TOO OLD. He’s tried and failed. He had an nice run as VP but that should be it. He has too much baggage. More than Hillary.

    Not only is there the touchy feely stuff but plenty of women remember Anita Hill and will not forgive him for that.
