Joe Biden’s Past Comes Back to Bite Him Ahead of 2020 Run

Former Vice-President Joe Biden hasn’t announced that he is running for president yet; even so, speculation that he is likely to run has led to many journalists taking a closer look at comments that he has made over the last several decades of his political career.

While the former VP is certainly known for his gaffes, his controversial stance on multiple issues could prove to be an even bigger problem with the left-wing voters he would need to secure the Democratic Party’s nomination.

Biden’s comments on race-related matters may be particularly thorny, especially given the fact that the former VP is competing against African-American presidential candidates. In the 1970s, then-Senator Joe Biden criticized the practice of bussing children to different schools in order to desegregate the school system. He told journalists that he felt that move was a waste of money.

He also stated that the Democratic Party needed a liberal version of the conservative politician George Wallace. While some would note that comments made more than thirty years ago don’t necessarily reflect the man Joe Biden is today, the fact is that not all his controversial, racially-related comments were made in the distant past. Just over ten years ago, he expressed astonishment at the fact that former President Barack Obama was an articulate, clean and nice-looking African American. He also told voters in Iowa that the state’s schools were in good shape because they didn’t have many racial minorities and said that, in Delaware, it is impossible to go into a Seven Eleven without faking an Indian accent.

This isn’t just about Biden’s dated comments on race. His policy positions, though once mainstream among Democratic voters, have long lost favor with the rabid progressive base. While most people today view him as a liberal, the truth is that he held to conservative viewpoints for most of his political career. He worked with late former President Ronald Reagan to slash taxes on the rich, supported former President Bill Clinton’s crime bill, voted against antitrust legislation and even said that the Roe vs. Wade decision that legalized abortion went too far.

At one point, liberal watchdogs said that Biden was even more conservative than a number of his Republican colleagues in the Senate. To make matters even worse, the former Vice President has been caught on camera touching women in a creepy manner so many times that he has earned himself the notorious nickname “Creepy Uncle Joe”. Once, when hugging the thirteen year old daughter of Sen. Joni Ernst, he told her that he hoped her mother had a big fence around her property. In today’s #MeToo age, it’s not unrealistic to say that such actions alone could doom Joe Biden’s career.

On one hand, it is possible that Biden will be able to overcome his past and even recent present. He is currently considered the frontrunner by a wide margin, despite not having officially jumped into the race. He has name recognition and the backing of moderate Democrats, something which most upstart Democrat presidential candidates are sorely lacking. His foreign policy experience and the fact that he is closely associated with still-popular former President Barack Obama are other important points in his favor.

However, there is no questioning the fact that, in today’s day and age, all of Joe Biden’s past comments and actions will come back to haunt him. When this happens, he will need to be prepared to explain to his own party members why he embraced causes that many of them now find anathema.

  1. Biden also had charges of plagiarism brought against him when he was a law student in 1965 and also while running for president in 1988. So, he would be a good candidate for the democrats!

        1. He best check into Shady Pines, or better yet Happy Dale. At least at Happy Dale they will see he gets his medication on time. I think one of his big problem is that they put those hair plugs in too deep !

  2. Democrats want illegals to come to America and vote in elections because non-citizens will always support Democrat candidates. And while illegal immigrants’ participation in school board elections might be benign, the principle could have disastrous effects if adopted at higher levels; for example, Mexico could flood a state with illegal immigrants and take over with alien votes. We must not allow this to happen.

  3. Someone in the Republican party must be pushing Biden to run…will help Trump tremendously. Biden
    can’t talk for two minutes without the world knowing what he is about. His gaffes are well known and they
    live forever thanks to the media that capture all of those crazy remarks. His “shot-gun” gaffe will come out.
    His remarks to his former President will…Thank you for running, Biden. You make the Republican efforts so
    much easier.

  4. HEIL HITLARY!!! I could just see Joe Biden and “DER FUHRER-WANNABE” both fighting over the Democratic nomination for the 2020 presidential campaign like two pit bulls righting over a 20 pound pile of T-Bone steaks. Actually, Joes is at least a wee bit better of a candidate than “DER FUHRER-WANNABE”. Joes HASN’T done anything in his past that SHOULD have put him in an international orange jumpsuit with the words “FORT LEVENWORTH FEDERAL CORRECTIONAL FACILITY” written on it. “DER FUHRER-WANNABE” HAS REPEATEDLY DONE THING THAT SHOULD HAVE LANDED HER IN THE FEDERAL SLAMMER. HH

  5. He is too old, to controversial, I wonder about his handiness, of course that would not be reported over the years. In the Government way too long, he should go home and rest.

  6. He represents the “Old, New England, White Establishment”. How many former POTUS (besides the recent “Kenyon Transplant”) came out of New England? Should that tell you something?

  7. Joe Biden ran for US president twice before and got only 2% votes among democrat candidates.
    Joe Biden was then saved by Obama to be Obama puppet, otherwise nobody know who is Joe Biden.

  8. When has any politician been held accountable for any incompetence in decades…..especially a lefty???? Biden, like many others, is about as intelligent as a block of granite and just as big of a snake as most lefties. Schumer, Pelousy, Ellsion, Waters, Harris, and Cortez just to name a few…..and don’t forget the RINOs like Mukowsky, Collins, Paul, Graham, Romney, and on and on.

  9. He stood and told thousands of illegals that when the democrats would get in control they all would be legal . Everyone should remember Biden holding a meeting with Illegals . He was doing it while our Veterans were being locked out of the Memorials that Obama shut down . Pelosi was holding a rally right over from were this jerk was . Doing the same thing . And with the help of the do nothing party the republicans . By the end of the year there will be no America to worry about . Just a filthy hell Hole full of diseases and people who have no skin in the game .

  10. Joe Biden just another one of those, he would make a pore host at Wendy’s
    we love President Trump we are now seeing America grow again, booming economy protecting us at the (BORDER) and ruling are country like never before so Joe you should stay home and clean your own house, dog catcher might be good.

  11. The Progressive/Socialists can run anybody they want and, regardless of their internal differences, they’ll all get in lock-step with the candidate that they ultimately choose to run. Republicans, unlike the Progressives, will splinter off into groups divided in most cases by single issues, such as abortion, and shoot themselves in the foot as always. You must always remember that the Republican Party DID NOT run Trump for president – The voters of America did because he believed in and said the things that the majority of Americans felt.

  12. Biden……such a very poor excuse! Wait ‘til the story about his married son having an affair with his other son’s widow gets out! “Serial groper” of, esp. little girls, and the “gaffe master” are very accurate appellations! Accomplishments of positive worth=zero!

  13. BIDEN’S LEADERSHIP IS AKIN TO PUSHING A ROPE.
    HE HAS NO PURPOSE OR DIRECTION
    HIS ONLY ASSET IS LIFE-PASS ON AMTRAK BETWEEN DOVER & DC

  14. Liberals are “progressive” in one sense – they continually move farther to the left. Things once considered so wrong that they “will never happen here” ten years ago are now legal and quickly becoming “acceptable”. Now, even these ways are seen as too conservative by the new (d) darlings in Congress. In ten more years, the murder of the newborns and assisted suicide for the ill and elderly simply won’t cut it anymore. In twenty short months our voting can put and end to all of this, or our continued refusal to vote will give a thumbs up to it. It’s in our hands, folks!

  15. Least we forget his hot mike comment about obummer’s health care act ….quote “This is a big fuc#### deal” or his oldie but goodie…asking a paralyzed man in a wheelchair to stand up so everyone could see him.

  16. This old pervert can’t keep his clothes on long enough to run for president. He likes to strut naked in front of his Secret Service details and touch all the women in the crowd. Typical behavior of Democrats and then run about pointing fingers at everyone else as if he were innocent, much like Kamala Harris wanting to legalize prostitution. LOL, that’s how she got ahead.

  17. Joe Biden is a multi time loser. Now he is too old to try an other and will be a five times loser.
    Remember when he ran for US president in 2008, he got only 1% and then Obama save him
    to be Obama puppet, otherwise, no body know who is Joe Biden. Poor Joe Biden !

  18. How many know that Martin Luther was a Republican. Have talked to so many who did not know that little fact.

  19. I would also let all know that in Biden’s 1988 campaign for the Democratic Presidential nomination he plagiarized British Labor Party Neil Kinnick ‘s speech about him being the first in his generation to attend and graduate from college as well as his wife’s college attendance. Biden in his speech did not give credence to Kinnick’s speech but claimed it as his own experience – that done him in!

  20. The Media will forget and forgive “Creepy Joe” and spike any derogatory stories and past gaffes IF “Creepy Joe” gets on the “progressive” bandwagen. To do so, he’ll need to support the following:

    Nationalization of Banks, Industry, Utilities, Manufacturing, Food Production, Drug Production and Research, Healthcare, Free College for all, (all colleges and universities government controlled and operated), 100% income tax on the “rich,” Guaranteed Income for all, Guaranteed government jobs for all, OPEN BORDERS, No Fence (and the destruction of any and all existing barriers on the southern border) Abolishment of ICE and the disarming of America’s Police Forces.

    This is what the Democrat Party stands for today. This is the ONLY way that “Creepy Joe” has, to becoming the Democrat nominee and even then, his chances are IFFY. After all, “Creepy Joe” is a WHITE MALE, non-homosexual, with a proclivity toward little girls. Now then, “PERVERT Creepy Joe,” might be a BIG WINNER among Democrat voters.
