Most popular Joe Biden website is secretly run by a Republican operative to make him look bad.

Well, that’s just mean.

Courtesy of NYT:

For much of the last three months, the most popular Joseph R. Biden Jr. website has been a slick little piece of disinformation that is designed to look like the former vice president’s official campaign page, yet is most definitely not pro-Biden.

From top to bottom, the website, JoeBiden.info, breezily mocks the candidate in terms that would warm the heart of any Bernie Sanders supporter: There are GIFs of Mr. Biden touching women and girls, and blurbs about his less-than-liberal policy positions, including his opposition to court-ordered busing in the 1970s and his support for the Iraq war. Pull quotes highlight some of his more famous verbal gaffes, like his description of his future boss, Barack Obama, as “articulate and bright and clean.” The introductory text declares, “Uncle Joe is back and ready to take a hands-on approach to America’s problems!”

All the site says about its creator is buried in the fine print at the bottom of the page. The site, it says, is a political parody built and paid for “BY AN American citizen FOR American citizens,” and not the work of any campaign or political action committee.

There is indeed an American behind the website — that much is unambiguously true. But he is very much a political player, and a Republican one at that. His name is Patrick Mauldin, and he makes videos and other digital content for President Trump’s re-election campaign. Together with his brother Ryan, Mr. Mauldin also runs Vici Media Group, a Republican political consulting firm in Austin whose website opens with the line “We Kick” followed by the image of a donkey — the Democratic Party symbol often known by another, three-letter, name.

A spotlight on the people reshaping our politics. A conversation with voters across the country. And a guiding hand through the endless news cycle, telling you what you really need to know.

The Biden website was intended to help Democrats “face facts,” Mr. Mauldin said in an interview. He kept his name off it because “people tend to dismiss things that they don’t like, especially if it comes from the opposite side,” he said.

Here’s a fact that I am going to embrace.

 The fact that the Republicans fear Joe Biden so much that they will do to extremes to undermine his campaign. 

I am also going to suggest that they are making the same mistake they made in 2008 when the Republicans had a fully realized plan in place to undermine Hillary Clinton when she won the Democratic nomination and were completely unprepared to deal with Barack Obama when he won instead. 

Don’t get me wrong, I want them to keep doing what they are doing, I am just pointing out that will likely not help them in the long run.

    I am sick of these unethical republicans who can’t win without cheating or help from an enemy government.

    Time for the Democrats to get tough, no more “when they go low, we go high” crap, not when you are fighting people that will do anything to win. Our democracy is at stake, no more Mr. Nice Guy.

    Also I would like the Democrats to band together, they should be “fighting trump” not each other. Instead of crabbing about what their opponent has or hasn’t done, how about presenting their policy, the republicans are going to throw the mud and don’t need the help from Democrats.

    So this explains why she went after Biden on busing, personally I don’t think this issue is going to get her to the WH, it is going to lose a lot of voters, people don’t want there kids sitting on a bus for hours, when there is a school in there own neighborhoo

      I see pros and cons about the busing. I had a daughter who chose to attend a magnet HS. The extra time on the bus to commute and the need to pick her up when she stayed late to take after school electives and activities was time consuming. I would need to examine all the pros for an elementary school child. What comes to mind about the pros is that it would be to the child’s advantage and worth the additional commute time.

        Well if there is MANDATORY busing you don’t get to weigh the pros and cons.

          Mandatory is a gray area. It can mean that districts are required to provide busing but parents are not obligated to use it. What needs to be mandatory is that all schools be equal in quality. All safe, clean, all have the same quality staff, infrastructure, supplies.

          What needs to happen is to stop funding schools with property taxes. That’ is the fundamental reason for the educational divide and the reason for busing. If neighborhood schools were essentially equal then parents would not be pushing for busing.

          In my local district they did voluntary busing and put magnet schools in the poorer neighborhoods. There were waiting lists of white parents trying to get their kid into the medical magnet or the high tech one with the latest computers. Neighborhood kids got first choice priority. Meanwhile you look at schools in Mississippi or Alabama and the schools in the poor neighborhoods get cast off textbooks and the buildings should be condemned.

    Why Bill Barr Is So Dangerous
    He is using the office he holds to advance his extraordinary lifetime project of assigning unchecked power to the president.
    The answer may be that facts are facts, and not to be messed with—but that law, especially constitutional law, is often subject to interpretation.

    Democrats have an opening. Trump wants to run on the economy and healthcare. If voters don’t believe Trump on the economy, the door will be wide up for the Democratic nominee to take back the White House in 2020.

    Joe Biden doesn’t need anyone to make him look like a bad candidate. Every single person in my Democrat group in my town was appalled at his debate night.

    Biden and sanders both gotta go. Sanders needs to retire completely and find out what he’s passionate about on this planet before he dies, and biden will always be ‘Obamas VP’ to the ignorant. Williamson needs to among up get game and TURN ON THE HOUSE LIGHTS to the IGNORANT CHRISTIAN MYTH of salvation elsewhere for “PRIVILEGED BELIEVERS”.

      whoops. Correction.
      “Williamson needs to amp up her game”.

      PS. Mind you, she’s for Law Of Attraction, which is corny and retarded just the same.

    And if the DCCC puts Biden on the top of the ticket, they’ll be making the same mistake they made in 2016 and we’ll have another 4 years of Trump. Bernie is over. So is Biden. They had their chances. Too late. Too old. No more old white men.
