Joe Biden seems to believe that the Trump presidency is an aberration and does not represent the Republican party.

Has he not been paying attention?

Courtesy of NYT:

As Joseph R. Biden Jr. made his way across Iowa on his first trip as a 2020 presidential candidate, the former vice president repeatedly returned to one term — aberration — when he referred to the Trump presidency.

“Limit it to four years,” Mr. Biden pleaded with a ballroom crowd of 600 in the eastern Iowa city of Dubuque. “History will treat this administration’s time as an aberration.”

“This is not the Republican Party,” he added, citing his relationships with “my Republican friends in the House and Senate.”

There is no disagreement among Democrats about the urgency of defeating Mr. Trump. But Mr. Biden’s singular focus on the president as the source of the nation’s ills, while extending an olive branch to Republicans, has exposed a significant fault line in the Democratic primary.

Democrats, like Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, see the president as a symptom of something deeper, both in a Republican Party overtaken by Trumpism and a nation cleaved by partisanship. Simply ousting Mr. Trump, they tell voters, is not enough.

Yeah, I have to side with Sanders and Warren on this one.

If Trump did not represent the modern Republican party they would speak out against him or work behind the scenes to undermine his presidency.

I see no signs of that.

What I see is a sycophantic Republican party who have betrayed their last shred of ethics in order to support a man who on the surface seems to represent a betrayal of everything they supposedly stood for. 

And let us not forget that even before Donald Trump, the Republicans in Washington banded together to block every single policy that President Obama tried to implement before they even knew what it was. 

As I see it the Republican party in its current form is a lost cause. 

And anybody who cannot recognize that likely has no business representing the Democratic party in the 2020 presidential election.

    Trump embraced impeachment as a weapon to use against Democrats to mobilize sympathy and support from his voters.
    Democrats aren’t unfair. They are exercising their oversight powers as granted by the constitution.
    Trump wants impeachment because it will provide him with a distraction that he can use to define the 2020 election.

    “This is not the Republican Party,” really?

    OT? “Someone Tell Joe Biden It’s Not 1973 Anymore, the Republican Party Now Belongs to Trump.” <the daily beast

    “There’s a lesson here for modern-day Democrats. The history of the American statehood process is the history of political factions selectively admitting new states in order to bolster their own fortunes and harm those of their opponents.” “if the alternative is allowing half the country to control 84 percent of the Senate, splitting blue states is a more democratic choice than doing nothing.” “Democrats may have as few as two years to act before they permanently lose control of the Senate, and with it, the Supreme Court and the Constitution.”

    You wrote: “If Trump did not represent the modern Republican party they would not speak out against him or work behind the scenes to undermine his presidency.”

    Should read either- “If Trump did not represent the modern Republican party ‘they would speak’ out against him ‘and’ or work behind the scenes to undermine his presidency.” or “If Trump did represent..they would not…”

      Thank you for pointing that out.

      I missed it while proofreading.

    Trump is the “Face and Soul” of the republican party. The GOP & RNC have been behaving evil for many years. As far back as the 60’s they have increasingly become dishonest and deceitful.

    It is not a good thing how the media seems to want us all to believe we should make VP Biden for president. I think we have better choices than him. Hopefully we voters will choose correctly.

    He’s wrong.

    We don’t need a gullible president in 2020. We need someone that is going to muzzle and hogtie the Republicans and reverse everything that Trump did, plus McConnell. Everything McConnell has done to weaken and undermine our Democracy needs to be nullified.
